First time visiting Bali and The Stones Hotel was the first out of three hotels booked we stayed at. I stayed here with a friend for three nights and it really exceeded my expectations!
The hotel is big, service was flawless, pool was absolutely beautiful, public areas were spotless, all the staff were extremely genuine and helpful.
The location is extremely convenient. If you don't want to relax by the huge pool in the hotel, literally just cross the road and you're at the public beach. A convenience store is only a minute walk from the hotel if you need to run any errands. Huge shopping centre with big brands like Victoria Secret, Zara, Top Shop and lots of restaurants of different cuisines (Beachwalk Mall I believe) is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. And if you're keen to shop the markets after shopping through the mall, they are situated right behind the mall.
Being really picky and indecisive with my food, I must say the restaurant really met my needs and cravings. With the dinner menu, they have two different menus. A traditional Indonesian menu as well as an International menu which contained items from the grill, pasta, seafood platters, etc.
The breakfast buffet was AMAZING! I was extremely disappointed at the other hotels I stayed at after with the breakfast. The breakfast at The Stones was unbeatable. HUGE variety! They had noodles (with soup or stir fry) made to order, had a juice bar of freshly squeezed juices, a fruit bar, a huge bakery/pastry section, cereal, muesli, american breakfast, eggs & omelettes cooked to your liking, antipasto and cheese selection, chinese dimsim, and traditional indonesian breakfast with indonesian sweets. (I will upload photos!) I guarantee you will not be bored of the breakfast. It is absolutely impossible to try everything within a day! Really recommend this hotel for travellers staying long-term as you will not get sick of the breakfast.
Staff were really helpful and were always there to make sure everything was okay. Restaurant staff were always really attentive and it didn't take long to get their attention if you had any requests. Very honest and when asked to recommend good food, they were very truthful about every item on the menu.
My partner from home had also called up the hotel to arrange a surprise gift for me. This included a fruit platter and a tea to be delivered to my room. And a 2 hour massage for my friend who was staying with me and myself. While we were having the massage, he requested the staff to leave a bouquet of roses, a box of chocolates and a handwritten card. (He got an image from google of a fruit platter and requested them to make it look like the photo). When I showed my partner the photo of the fruit platter, he showed me the photo he had sent to the staff. And I must say, they did MORE than they were told to. The fruit platter was spectacular! I was really impressed. My partner also requested the staff to tip themselves $50AUD which they didn't even charge to his bill! Really shows how genuine they are to help and satisfy all requests! The roses were also beautiful, and got alot of compliments! One little issue though, the tea that was arranged by my partner was charged to my bill and he was a little upset about it and he requested everything to be charged under his account. So if you're thinking of surprising someone who is staying in this hotel with gifts, this hotel does a flawless job and will not disappoint!
Spa staff were also very friendly, and have a huge variety of traditional massages, and spa treatments, manicure & pedicure!
Really recommend this hotel to everybody, you will not be disappointed!!! All aspects of the hotel was immaculate!
