“Will come and stay here again!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

I get to know about this Hotel from Groupon whereby they are having some promotions on their Studio Room last November. Looking from the reviews by others here, I find it to be ok to proceed with the purchase for a 4D 3N stay for 2 (me & my sister). I have communicated with the hotel management on our room booking and airport transfer. From the purchase, I've got other goodies from the Hotel itself, namely return airport transfer, welcome drinks, fruit basket, free Indonesian set lunch. Located at Seminyak, we find it reasonable and convenience to us. we are assigned to room 308 which is just a step away from its gymnasium.

Following are my reviews:

PROS:

1. Good response on emails - prior to my arrival, all my emails pertaining to booking, airport transfers and other enquiries are replied and confirmed promptly by one Magdalena Siahaan.
2. The layout of this hotel is very totally unique but some people might confuse with the arrangement. The designs of the walls are covered with moss (the intention of the management)The roof top is one of the most unique feature of this hotel which you will have a view of a paddy field beside the hotel. The view will be simply fantastic if you could see the paddy bearing grains. While the restaurant is just next to the pool and it has a open-air concept (covered but not air conditioned).
3. Facilities are good, this hotel has a very nice pool, fully equipped gymnasium and lounge area which was fully utilised by us and besides that it also offers shuttle to Seminyak Square, rental of bicycles and in-house spa.
4. As for our Studio Room, we find it to be very spacious, and fully equipped with mini bar, satellite tv, couches, safe box. Our balcony also have couch, big enough to become a bed for two. We spend our time at our room balcony at night enjoying the strong sea breeze. Our room also have cooking facilities (electric induction cooker with pots and pans).
5. The breakfast is not splurge but more than good enough to choose and fill up our appetite. Enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant which is directly facing the pool.
6. Staff are well trained. From our shuttle driver cum bell boy to the waitresses. Good English communication skills and decorum and its easier for us since we are from Malaysia, so language is not a big issue here but amazed that they can speak good and decent English and some with a TWANG!
7. Location wise is not at the main town, but it takes approximately around 15-20 mins depends on the traffic to get there. This is not a main issue because we hired our own driver to drive us around.

CONS:

1. As for our room, we find that the air conditioner is not working. It is set at 18'C but throughout our 4D3N stay, it is reasonably not 18'C but it feels like 24'C instead, believing that there is no gas. Made a complaint to the guest service, they immediately send their technician to rectify the problem. Saw them changing the filter of the air conditioner and also informed us that they are cleaning the condenser but we find it at the same temperature, or maybe it feels like 23'C. there is air movement but not that cool. Quite lazy to lodge another complain, we decided to utilised our balcony at night where it is much colder outside with the strong sea breeze & winds. We hope that the management of the hotel is noted on this matter and try to rectify it.

In conclusion, except for the air conditioner issue, we would truly would like to come and stay here again if we are at Bali. The hospitality of the people at the hotel is at par with higher end hotels, maybe its just our luck! =)

Room Tip: For gym junkies - Stay at level 3, nearer access to its fitness center.

Book two rooms for my business guests with their family. The feedbacks are the rooms are nice, clean. Not much of kids activities though. Maybe recommended for couple. The services at the bfast are not pleasant. The staff are not polite at all when ask for fried eggs. He look agitated. But overall they like the hotel.

Dear Rahardjo,

Greetings from Centra Taum !

Thank you very much for your review and comments on Trip Advisor for your business guest who stayed with us in January 2013.

I am delighted to note that they’ve enjoyed their stay with us and I am glad to know that they found rooms were nice and clean. Your comments about kids activities are correct and we will consider it to add more activities in the near future.

I apologize for the services at breakfast, I have already investigated and we found that the staff who’s serving the guest was our school’s trainee.

Thank you to have booked at Centra Taum, and we all look forward to the opportunity of again welcoming you or your guest – if holiday plans bring you back to Bali.


Warm regards,

My partner & I stayed at the resort for 9 perfect nights.
We couldn't pick a fault! the room was modern, we never had to ask for it to be cleaned the staff were on the ball!

there was a shuttke bus availabke 3x per day to go to Seminyak square or it was a lovely 20mun walk!

We loved spending days by the pool, being served and treated like royalty.

breakfast was lovely & we made some good friends with the staff that went that extra mile to make us feel at home.. Nevi & Lia! we miss there smiling faces!
Nick & I will definitely return next year..

I highly recomend Centra Taum to anyone who likes to feel at home & recieve 5star service.

Thank you for a holiday to cherish! ♥

I enjoyed my stay here even for only two nights. Hotel is clean, spacy and green started from the hotel's entrance. When you arrive at the lobby you're impressed by the pool. Its jyst cosy and green. Staffs are very friendly and fitness equipment at Cenfit was complete. I like this small hotel and will certainly recommend it to ny colleagues.
Well done Centra !!!

Room Tip: Pool view Studio was fantastic

We stayed 27 Dec 2013 - 4 Jan 2014 at Centra Taum. We have to congratulate the F & B department because in 20 years Indonesian hotels we have never had such lousy meals as in Centra Taum. if you want to stay healthy and not get the Bali Belly (paratyphus) then DON'T eat at the hotel. the food has no taste because it is reheated from the day(s) before. absolutely disgusting.
Rooms are ok but breakfast sucks as well with all 'old' stuff on the table.
we live and travel all around Indonesia but never had it this bad. Maybe getting rid of the 'cook(s)' would be a solution but it looks like the hotel is going for cheap, cheaper, cheapest when it comes to food....

Room Tip: if you want to sleep here only and not take breakfast then you are safe. if you want to have breakfa...

Dear Keindah,

Many thanks for your Tripadvisor review. It’s important for us to receive a balanced view point of each guests stay. While I am glad that overall you like the rooms and that you mentioned food has no taste, I am so sad to read your negative remarks.

First of all, I apologize if food in our restaurant during your stay was not what you expected. Guest satisfaction is very important to us and we do constant works and improvements to make Centra Taum better.

Allow me to make just a small correction on your comment on the food which was said if foods are reheated from day(s) before. Fyi, all foods that we’ve served in the restaurant is very fresh and even live cooked. I trust that you will not judge us on this one experience and that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Centra Taum Bali in the near future, so that we may have the chance to show you true Balinese hospitality.

Keindah,
I really appreciate your comments. Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to post your point of view and thank you for staying with us. If there is anything else you wish to share with us, please feel free to contact me directly at gmctb@chr.co.th

Yours sincerely,

Agus Suananda
