My Grandmother and I stayed in Bali Mandira for two days during Nyepi last March. We were greeted with warm smiles. (Special compliment to Mr. Lukito, the gentleman with wide smile that brought our luggages and showed us our room.) Check in was a breeze, and we were given cold towels while waiting. Our room was on the top floor of the tower wing, Premiere Room 9301. Upon entering the room, we were very happy and surprised! Well the front office area looked modest so we were not expecting that kind of luxury ;) Very nicely decorated, not that spacious but very, very comfortable. Four poster bed and one leathered long chair for watching the TV. The verandah was big enough with two sofas and a coffee table. Too bad, the view to the ocean was kinda obstructed by the palm trees in front of the building. My Grandmother fancied the lazy chair over the bed, even for sleeping. She dozed off many times while watching the TV!
The bathroom was very nice. Bathtub was separated with shower chamber which was made from glass. The wash basin felt kinda cool. The bathroom was actually not that large, but the arrangement of the room made it felt comfortable. Smart interior design, I'd say.
Air cond worked perfectly. Cooled us off after a hot day walking around the beach.
Breakfast was superb, a lot to choose from. Chicken porridge, eggs corner, cold cuts, cheese, bread and pastries, sausages and bacon, potato gratins, and all were very tasty. Food was always fresh, warm, and plentiful. The hospitality of the staff were genuine. I noticed they were greeting guests with "Hello. How are you today?" or just walking around saying "Coffee, Sir? No? Tea, perhaps?" Warm and polite..First class genuine hospitality!
Since it was Nyepi weekend, we had our dinner at the restaurant. Everything was pricey, but being the 4 star hotel it was, and remembering the view and service we had during the time, I would not fault it. But the food was too salty even for me that loves salty food (salmon pizza was way too salty)
I went to the top pool area at 7 AM. Tried the jacuzzi but the infinity pool was more interesting for me, and I had it for myself! A good 45 min of healthy luxury for the eye, the body, and the mind. I did not go to the lower pool since there were many kids back then. Looked pretty shallow to swim anyway :)
The garden was very well maintained, clean and lovely. Very refreshing.
The beach was very clean and it was good to see the security there cause that means that the premise would not be crowded by the street vendor, and not just anybody can enter the hotel area. Access road on the beach side was limited to security approved traffic only.
Mandira was strategically located. Near Carrefour and the shops and cafes in Legian. You can ask the front office to phone the Blue Bird taxi for you, free of charge.
All in all, it was a great experience at the Bali Mandira. I just contacted my travel agent to book the same room for me next May, but sadly the price had increased nearly double. Well, I will still reccommend Bali Mandira to my friends and family.
