I visit Bali around 3 times a year, we normally stay in high end properties (I’m very fussy about my accommodation). This year I decided that we would look for something more economical as we spend so much time out and about in Seminyak (we stayed at the Dipan, Sense and The Ize – see all review as each property is very well priced). My aim was to find a well situated, clean and professional hotel – the Sense ticked all the boxes.
I had some reservations about the Sense as previous reviews have said it's only suitable as a transit hotel, the rooms are too small ect. I was absolutely happy with this property. It’s not a fancy resort, it’s a professional, well run, centrally located hotel who offer a high level of service.
Brilliant location approx. 3 mins walk to Grocer and Grind and directly opposite Bodyworks!
This hotel has a nice Balinese feel to it. The staff are really friendly and speak good English.
Efficient and very courteous, they were able to accommodate an early check-in.
The staff were very helpful, my mum was ill during our visit, they took me to a pharmacy etc and offered to organise a doctor to attend the hotel.
Room (we opted for Deluxe).
The hotel has 5 floors. The higher floors have better views. The deluxe rooms have balconies, the superior do not. You can request a pool view room or a seaview (or perhaps street view if you’re on a lower floor) – we selected pool view as its quieter.
The room size is adequate (plenty of room – we had twin beds) – perhaps not really suitable for adding additional bedding. The floor is tiled so it’s lovely and clean. The beds were comfortable and the linen was good quality. There is lots of storage.
The room had a small balcony – there were no chairs on the balcony however it was great to let fresh air in. The balcony isn’t designed for sitting on.
Yes it is very small, it has a walk in shower, toilet and vanity. It wasn’t an issue for us as we knew it wasn’t going to be a huge luxurious bathroom.
Excellent continental selection, they also offer egg station.
Services – room service available 24 hours. Laundry service available.
This isn’t a luxurious resort – the pool area is nice. The only downside is the restaurant opens on to the pool, so if you’re very modest you won’t get any privacy. Other reviewers have said the pool doesn’t get any sun – the hotel has rectified this problem by reducing the size of the water wall.
Day spa – we had a massage. It wasn’t the best or the worst I’ve had in Bali. It cost AUD20 so can’t complain. Bodyworks is straight opposite the hotel so that would be my first choice.
Would I stay again – absolutely this hotel is so well priced (currently they have on their website deluxe rooms for US65++ - you just can’t beat that).
