“Wonderful Bali Mandira!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2009

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.

As our first ever time to Bali, we decided to stay at the Mandira as it is VERY clean, great security and great location. When we first arrived we had a few air-conditioner problems and moved rooms in the middle of the night. First impression of service was not good.
However, the manager sent an apology to us with a beautiful dinner voucher to enjoy at the hotels restaurant which absolutley delicious! Buffet breakfast was incredible!! (make sure you book with breakfast included) A big thankyou to "Tony" who was the nicest waiter you ever meet and offered to take us on day trips to various locations!
Hotel Spa was normal priced for us Aussies, so if your looking for dirt cheap pampering, theres heaps out on the streets which were just as good.
Rooms very small, but the cleanliness was all that mattered to me, because once your in Bali, your not spending alot of time in your room anyway!! Especially when the mandiras pools are so relaxing to swim in. Great ocean views from a top deck pool, and a lower ground pool where you get the beautiful ocean breeze.
All in all a fantastic stay at the mandira!!!!
Would book again to see the staffs friendly faces!

We booked a deluxe room via direct rooms (they had the best rates), and were very fortunately upgraded to one of the suites in the tower block when we arrived. The room was just perfect! It was bright and spacious, and the toilet was huge and had a really lovely raised bathtub (which was tiled with slate) overlooking the balcony, resort and the ocean (but wasn't a great ocean view since it was really far away)...

The suite came with other perks like access to the lounge with free internet and drinks during certain hours.

Its beachfront location was a definite plus point, and daily breakfast was served in the Parasol restaurant overlooking the beach, which was literally 10 steps away.

There were 2 pools; 1 was a raised infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Both pools were quite small considering the size of the resort, and the infinity pool was quite a disappointment as one could see the roof of the restaurant below and the zinc gutters that collected the water from the sides of the pool.

In contrast, when we went to the Odyssey surf school at Mercure Hotel in Kuta, the raised infinity pool had a totally unobstructed view of the ocean. We had also previously stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel some years ago, and to date have not found anywhere with a better pool!

It was overall a very pleasant experience, and I would recommend it for those who want to stay in Legian and be right on the beachfront.

We had booked one of the garden cottages,but found it to be somewhat claustrophobic and asked to be moved to the third floor block overlooking the beach.The recently refurbished room was fresh, clean,cool and quiet (except for the sound of the waves crashing on the shore) There was zero traffic noise as the access road on the beach side is limited to security approved traffic only.The bed was a bit firmer than we would have preferred.
The property is well maintained with nice gardens (check out the sunset!). The breakfast was nice despite the cold coffee and the poached eggs swimming in watery vinegar, but all sins are forgiven because of the unfailingly bright friendly and helpful staff.Have breakfast overlooking the beach in the Parasol restaurant and delight in the antics of the squirrels.The location is a leisurely 15 minute walk into the main tourist area of Kuta,and is well served locally with shops and restaurants.Not the hotel's fault,but the amount of plastic rubbish washed up on the beach is a real blight. Considering how wonderful Bali and its people are,this is a national disgrace.

  • Liked — Great views,nice rooms and excellent staff
  • Disliked — No major concerns
