“Nice Hotel Near the Beach and Restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Stayed here for a week in the family room with my two sisters in November 2012 and had a ball. The hotel was nice well kept and serene. All of the staff were friendly greeting you if they walked past.

We stayed in the family room which was kept clean and welll maintained throughout our stay. We did however have the same experience as other travellers whereby two staff on two different occaisions told us it was their last night before going on leave (obviously looking for a tip) The family rooms are also up several flights of stairs so if this is a problem for you look elsewhere. We also had a problem with an airconditioner that did not seem to be working properly however because it was still working a little it took several days to get it fixed.

The pools were nice however there is no swim up bar just a poolside bar. Plenty of sun lounges everytime we went down for a swim. The free Wifi in the lobby works well however we paid the $1.50 per hour to have it in our room.

The location is fanatstic! Accross the road is the beach and a short easy walk is Melasti street which hosts several bars, restaurants, and market type shopping (Ketut's fixed price shop is just off of this street) It is also only about $2 for a trip into Kuta (Matahari's)

All in all a relaxing hotel which I would stay at again

Room Tip: If stairs are a problem do not book the family room

On arrival we were upgraded to Alam villa and became part of Alam club which entitles u to free wifi/ coffee/beverages and snacks. Highly recommend Alam villa, beautiful outdoor bathroom, very large comfortable clean rooms. From what I saw from Alam lanai rooms they look just as spacious and clean.
This is the first time my partner and I have stayed at Alam KulKul and would definatley stay here again. It's great location meant that we were out of hussle bustle of kuta but could easily walk to kuta and legian.
The two resturants that are part of the hotel served fabulous food for good price! Well worth checking out!

This was our first time at the Kulkul as we normally stay in Kuta ..... what a lovely suprise! ... Grounds were amazing and the second pool felt like our own for most of the time there.
Breakfast was lovely and had the best omelettes i think i had ever had and the pastries were great.
Our Family room was spotlessly clean and it was great to come back to our room after a swim to find it all made up again.
My Mum and Dad stayed in the Alam Villa and that was also fantastic.
Out the front was Papas restaurant and the food was lovely and definitely not over priced like we had heard with the average main meal around $10 Aus. The staff were lovely and gave my two children bread to feed the fish with.
Thanks for a wonderful Holiday ...... I would most definitely go back.

The Alam Kulkul. I suppose we had been spoiled by spending 5 days in Ubud at the lovely Maya Ubud which was stunning in all respects. We paid AUD40 a night more at the Maya than Alam Kulkul but the difference was light years apart.

First of all I am not sure what criteria the AK uses to claim that it is a boutique resort. It is a pretty ordinary hotel albeit the rooms are all on one level. We had an Alam Villa garden view villa with no view of a garden and no where to sit outside.

All in all the AK is very tired and in need of a good makeover. The staff do their best with what they work with. The bath towels are thin and fraying. The breakfast very ordinary with a luke warm buffet of not very good quality or interesting Indonesian food and the normal omelettes etc. the breakfast coffee is Nescafé dispensed from a machine. Kopi Bali is available on request. Anything else is an additional charge.

The so-called Hospitality Room - part of the package of additional benefits - is very very sad. A colourless room with a pathetic water feature. It provides a nescafe coffee machine, some cold drinks and selection snacks such as cold fried mini spring rolls, sandwich quarters with tomato lettuce on white bread and a flan made with custard and canned peaches ... I could go on ...

The gardens and pools are not well maintained with plants that need deadheading etc.

For the price it is not value for money. My advice is to give it a wide berth. It is budget hotel standard for top mid range dollar.

price almost same as hard rock hotel, but suit rooms are bigger and better. breakfast is normal but resturent is quite nice. 10 min walk from the main ceown but right next to the beach. take taxi for around 350000idr for full day.

Room Tip: don't take family room, go for the suit room with extra bed. you can always skip the breakfast.

I recently stayed in this Hotel AlamKulkul for my 10 day trip to bali and really enjoyed the hotel the staff where always very very helpfull to me and the place was very clean and well looked after.
The breakfast every morning was delish and always looked forward to it !! would stay here again without a doubt.
We had lovley staff that where checking in regulary to see if we needed anything and how our stay was going, if you walked in with heaps of shopping from a long day they would offer to take it to your rooms, which was really helpfull.
and had a couple of coktail parties with free drinks and finger food on friday nights which was a great way to meet other people.

Room Tip: i went with the quad room for 3 people in seperate beds but it was massive and had heaps of room.

I travel to Bali several times a year and generally stay at the same couple of hotels because they have everything I want. This trip I decided to try somewhere new and was pleasantly surprised. Alam Kulkul is only a small resort but I will definitely be returning.
We just returned yesterday with my 5 year old son and we stayed in the Java villa. It was amazing. Absolutely loved the villa. The main room is very spacious and it also has a massive bathroom area with a huge below ground bath tub, Part of the bathroom floor was made in to a fish tank with stepping stones to access the bath. Very original. The villa comes with a king bed complete with mosquito nets and the staff set up an additional single bed for my son at no extra cost, yet there was still plenty of space in the room.
Out the front of the villa, we had our own private plunge pool complete with sun beds, which was perfect to lounge around and have drinks, but the two main hotel pools were not far away either. It is probably not ideal for travelling with children as there is no kids club or kids activities but my son was content enough with his own private pool and following the fish and turtles around in the ponds.
The attached restuarant 'Papas' served fantastic meals, particularly the breakfast.
The hotel itself is in a brilliant location and the grounds are beautiful. The staff were fantastic and there wasnt anything they wouldn't help us with.
I very much enjoyed my holiday and will be back

Room Tip: The Java villa was amazing
