“Good location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

The Pelangi is a beautiful resort situated on the beach front in Seminyak which is fantastic for strolling along the beach or grabbing a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants lining the beach (we loved Taris, grab a bean bag, some local food and watch the sun fade out) or you can head out for a walk up the street which joins the main road which is host to many stalls, major shopping labels and restaurants.

The room itself was huge and quite close to the pool bar and breakfast restaurant which worked well for us, the bathroom was clean, well presented and quite large, the bed was comfortable and the selection of tv channels and room service was fantastic.

On the first night we had issues with Mosquitos however house keeping set us up with a plug in repellent thingy that fixed the problem for us.

We had an enjoyable time and would recommend to anyone wanting a nice resort that isn't over run by kids in a good location.

My husband and I spent 6 nights at Pelangi in November for our honeymoon.
The rooms are clearly dated from the decor to the small chunky television that made a high pitched noise, and constantly buzzing bar fridge which woke me up at night (and I'm a heavy sleeper!). The internet drove us crazy. You have to log-in each time via a website and we experienced constant drop outs.
The hotel is actually a massive complex. We ran into 2 mothers on separate occassions that required help to push their strollers up the stairs. Sometimes we'd walk passed other guests who'd make a joke about the long walk from one end to the other.
The pool was great and the location was perfect if you want to be right on the beach. There is also a wonderful spa down the road on level 5 of Grandmas Hotel. 85 000 rupiah for a 1hr massage. Ask for Citra. She does the best massages in Bali.

Overall, Pelangi was an old resort in need of a complete revamp, which is why I didn't think it was good value for money. But the location is great and if you hardly spend any time in your hotel during your holiday, then this place might be suitable for you.

Personally, I'd recommend Amadea Resort & Villas Seminyak, which is where we stayed in the beginning of our trip. 5 star resort at 3 star prices. Best location on "eat street". Check it out!

My friend and I stayed here for 1 week in early October, the hotel is clean and has beach frontage which is great. Only a short ride from Ku De Ta and Potato Head etc. The pool is great as is the swim up bar. Staff are friendly, probably the only downside would be room service food not great but your aren't there for that.

The location is superb, right on the beach. The pool is a real highlight and was kept brilliantly clean the whole week. The towel boys, deck chairs, pool bar and service are wonderful. The front desk staff are helpful and friendly with the safe deposit box service being great. Rama restaurant has a lovely position overlooking the ocean and pool.The included breakfast is varied and good with cereal, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, toast, bacon, eggs and more. Lunch is ok with sandwiches at a reasonable price. The only real negative was dinner at the Rama. It was without doubt the worst restaurant meal we have ever had anywhere in the world so don't go near it for dinner. The warungs on the beach for dinner as the sun goes down are fabulous. La Champlung is our favourite with beanbags, live entertainment and a laid back feel. $2.30 Bintangs, Nasi Goreng for $4 and great service. The superiour room was big and clean although as others have said the beds are hard. We were in 232 on the 2nd floor midway between the lobby and the pool and found it a good position. Don't waste your money upgrading to the deluxe room. We didn't use the Spa as massages were $27, we went to Carlas opposite the Kodak shop and enjoyed $6 massages. The Kodak shop just down the street was great for changing money.

Room Tip: Superiour rooms are just fine. Don't waste a dollar on upgrading. Another couple we spoke to spe...

First impression.....older style Balinese flair. Rooms comfortable, however the only reason I might not stay again is the Hard beds. The pool area is lovely with swim up bar, very friendly staff and patrons. We liked that there weren't many kids. Great location right on the beach, eating Brekkie every morning watching the surf. They have an excellent Tailor and Spa on the premises. A good walk to shopping areas, mostly we flagged pale blue cabs and made sure they had working Meters. We went to a few shows in Restaurant, food was quite nice, but nothing to rave about. We stayed 8 nights and had a great time. We had adjoining rooms with our close friends.
