3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2009

We got our room on the 3rd floor, the seaview one, and yes its true they don't have elevators so we got a bit of excercise from going back and forth. The view from the balcony was truly nice as our room was the furthest at the end so we have full view of the beach. We like the traditional feel of the grounds, fish ponds, giant chess, lush garden, though its pretty hard finding your way around at night cos its a bit dark and signages need to be upgraded. Poolside was average, we always found a space for us to lounge or to have a drink or two, new mats for the lounger wouldn't hurt though. Because of the location it does have a gorgeous sunset view every evening. The food was nothing to rave about. Service is friendly enough, there was one staff who i think was overly friendly with the chitchats, good for some but can be annoying for others. There were lots of european guests though.
Its true that you have to be careful with the waves in this beach on some occasion swimming is prohibited.
We liked this hotel even though other reviewers might say otherwise..its not a big n ritzy resort type of hotel but its good value for money, overall..its a feel good hotel, great for secluded, romantic getaway and its simply wonderful..

My husband and I stayed at grand Balisani suites in June2009 having booked with Mercury Direct. Flights from Heathrow with Singapore airlines were great. Pick up at the airport through Mercury was excellent (as was the homeward airport transfer).
check in was made easier with the help of the courier otherwise it might have been a bit drawn out.
First impressions of the ground floor room was... dark, damp and dingy.The outlook was onto a very close ,dark garden wall. even at midday it was very gloomy and not what we wished.Also it only had a shower. We did request an upgrade to a sea view room and ended up on the fourth floor without too muuch ado ... but we did pay for it..As already mentioned... no lifts ..so the exercise did us good! at least the room was bright and airy and had a decent bath and separate shower.
Room servicing was daily but linen was rather sad and grey looking. The cleaning was rather haphazard and we noted that we had been charged for usage of water,nuts, chocolate before we had even started ... so these were quickly re-added to the inventory!!
Food was mediocre - we did eat at the hotel on the first night BBQ. Nothing to write home about and a dismal affair really! Breakfast wasn't too bad with eggs, omelettes cooked to order. nothing special...again.
Otherwise we ate out - Went to the small Warung just near the hotel and for the price couldn't fault it. Also tried Warung Sobat for cheap meal. For celebration meal we went to Breeze and also cafe Warisan - excellent food, impeccable service in idyllic surroundings... but at a price!!!!
Trips weren't our priority but we did go to the volcano with usual woodcarving, artwork detours.
Shame the beach was not very good, the beach sellers did pester you a bit. The pool was quiet and we did manage to find loungers. The pool bar was a bit basic but staff were always friendly. Missed having a bar focal point in the evenings - other than the beach bar, it wasn't easy to meet up with other guests for a drink.
All in all we found the hotel to be average ... but as we had really settled for a budget holiday we were not disappointed. We had a rest in the sun which is what we went for.
Perhaps a more upmarket hotel next time.
