“Step out to the beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2007

We stayed at this hotel in May 2007. Room was clean - no issues. Loved the pool. Also, another plus is that we just stepped out onto the beach! Front desk and staff were efficient and friendly.

Pelangi is definite value for money. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff are very friendly and cheerful. The pool area is nice and bigger than a lot of pictures give it credit and there was always enough loungers to go round. Location wise it is right on the beach, and a good stretch of beach at that. That is it's real attraction for us. The beach at Kuta is nowhere near as nice. It's also a short walk along the beach to nice restaurants like Ku De Ta and plenty of others if you walk up the street into town. Breakfast was decent enough as well.

I know a lot of people are annoyed by them, but some of the hawkers near this place on the beach actually made our stay very enjoyable. Some can be annoying, but a firm no and they get the message. However, 3 really do stand out as very, very nice people. There is Dewa (pronounced Day wa) who is directly in front of the entrance to the beach (if a little to the left) and he sells much cheaper Bintang than the hotel. A real nice man if you want a chat as well and we used to watch the sunset while having a few of his beers. There is Sui Me who is a little more to the left and does a great massage for a very good price. Finally, there is a lad called Ben who rents out boogie boards and surf boards. He gives a 2 hour surf lesson as well, way cheaper than the big companies and I was actually surfing after that.

Overall, a great stay, without breaking the bank.

Staye here for 6 days paid $60 a night for a superior room. I would not pay any more than this. it was clean and comfortable, but needed airing it had a bit of a musty smell with it. The room was not very bright inside as all the rooms look onto each other.

The pool area is very squashed with sun bed which could do with replacing. More maintance in this area is needed.The pool itself is nice.

The staff are very pleasant. The lobby area is very clean.

Very close to Ku De Ta. The best place to eat was the Warrison although you have too book . we had some great meals in Bali. We never ate at the hotel.

We were hardly ever at the hotel since we were at wedding celebrations most days. So the pool area never bothered us. This would not be my choice of place to spend a week at, but saying that others are very happy with the standard of the accomodation as they have weddings at the hotel.

Visited the Istana Villa in Uluwatu this was amazing. Also spent time at the Conrad hotel in Nusadua which is very nice and you could get a double room for £70 inc. breakfast. Which I thought was good value.

Yes I would tell people about this hotel because of its location but I would check out the Resor first as they have some good deals including airport transfer if you contact them directly.

If changing currency in Bali take largerdenominations you get a better rate of exchange.

  • Liked — Location and friendly staff
  • Disliked — Pool area very cramped and the furniture in need of an update

Came here for our honeymoon, stayed for 10 days then 2 days at Alila Ubud. The rooms aren't great but we only slept there & spent most of our days in the pool or sightseeing. Breakfast was included and it was delicious. As soon as you walk in you can feel the Balinese ambiance, with traditional music played in throughout the hallways & restaurant.
The best thing is the pool, it was a great place to spend the hot days & sun bathe. The food & drinks were cheap too thanks to the exchange rate.
The other good thing is that the hotel backs right on the beach, you can spend endless afternoons watching the sunset. Don't try swimming in the beach though, there's so much rubbish that collects overnight, the locals have to sweep the sand each morning.
The minuses are the hagglers , but when you think about it, they're trying to make a living. just make sure that you don't get conned with their prices & bargain.
The location is pretty good, you can walk along the beach to Seminyak restaurants. If you want to go shopping or to the restaurants in Kuta, it's around 7 minutes by taxi
We would certainly go back there for sure & recommend it highly for the price you pay
