“Balinese Traditional Old World Charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We have previously stayed at traditional Balinese Bungalow style hotels in Bali and Putu Bali ticks all the boxes that satisfy the requirements. The staff where friendly, attentive and helpful. The Hotel facilities were typical with room size and private outdoor shower facilities generous. The pool area had limited spaces for lounging but was not over taxed so we enjoyed our private pool area very much. The gardens and water features were excellent and well maintained. The Hotel is showing the signs of age and at the time we stayed in Late September 2013 the Bar/Restaurant/Entertainment area at the front of the Hotel was under construction but caused minimal issue for holiday makers. The immediate surrounding area sidewalks in Seminyak was also in the construction stage and extra care was needed walking around to the local attractions, shopping or the accessing the beach. Overall we had a great stay and would certainly return for a future visit. We rate Very Good to Excellent.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms can be subject to excess noise from adjoining building car park - try to choose a vil...

Have never given a negative review for any of the places we've stayed in before, this is probably a first. But let me start with the good stuff first:

The outdoor shower and bathtub was great, very romantic. Its the biggest bath tub i've seen in the (limited) places I've stayed. The room was pretty nice, and the bed comfy (though the nettings in the bed had traces of dirt and dirt and some holes). Breakfast was not too bad - they prepared it hot for you from a menu. Though the options were limited for muslim guests. But their (small) buffet spread has to get better - same stuff everyday and at the very least, a toaster?

The Bad:
1) All the websites said they had a fitness room (and we lugged our workout gear there), only to be told when we got there that it was not ready.
2) They didn't show the big Liverpool Man U game at the hotel and couldn't direct us (correctly) to where we could catch it.
3) Staff were polite but not very helpful - quick to say machines/phone out of order.
4) Promoted the costly external spas (60 over USD) when we could it for 20-30 easily if we searched on our own. Even their in house spa was cheaper.
5) Could walk to the beach but the area nearest the hotel could not be used for swimming as it was put off for some hindu customs
6) Really long walk to Seminyak square (which didnt have much shopping to do) and other shopping facilities

The next time, would stick to a place in Kuta or Ubud. Kuta was happening, and Ubud was very serene and beautiful.

Room Tip: there were renovations going on, so we stuck to a deluxe room at the end of the villa. was quiet and...

There's an renovation going on at the front of the hotel. That's why it is very noisy during breakfast. The hotel is serving breakfast in an airconditioned and boring room. After the renovation will be finished it would be much better. I hope! A special reguest such as bakmi goreng or nasi goreng will take 15 minutes or more before ready. But when it's there the food is nice; fresh, tasty and spicy (if you like). The staff is friendly and helpfull, the reception could operate more efficient. Our room was more a little villa with a small kitchen (with big refrigerator) and possibility to make coffee or tea. There was a large bath-tub (which we never used) and shower in a open air setting. The warm water supply is good. Everything is clean, but unfortunately we have had trouble with dancing mouses at the roof of our room sleepingroom. Very noisy mouses! Also there where a lot of gnat's because of the green tropical gardens. That's why you have to sleep with the mosquito net closed. The airconditioning was working okay. Every room has a small terrace with a table and two chairs. Children love to play and moo in the swimmingpool which is located in the centre of this location.

Room Tip: Far away from the reception you have no problem with the noise of the renovation! Try the bakmi or...

we have just returned from our stay at putu bali and thoroughly enjoyed our time there, from surya and waiung serving bintangs in the pool to the helpful staff at the office and the always happy security and drivers out the front who could ask for more. in perfect location, close to potato head, the square , mexicoli and most importantly groccer and grind for morning coffees. the rooms were comfortable with aircon and great outdoor shower. the best part was how quiet it was considering the hustle and bustle that greeted you at the front gate.

terra mikhasi and see you nxt year putu bali , cant wait..

In May, myself and two girlfriends stayed at the Putu Bali. We all had a one bedroom villa and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Fantastic location, the staff were fantastic, lovely pool & the rooms were excellent. I have been visiting Bali regularly for the past 20 yrs & I really enjoyed the experience of the Putu Bali. In the past, I would normally stay at much larger hotels, which is nice, but staying in a smaller boutique hotel, definitely suited us. The grounds are lovely and immaculate.

I couldn't fault anything. I will definitely be back!
