Hi, we are planning a trip to Bali next July 2009. We are 2 mums with 2 15yr boys into surfing. I have stayed at the Sofitel (formerly the Imperial) in 2001 and whilst we liked the location the Hotel itself left us a little cold. We stayed at Kartika in 2004 and enjoyed this hotel as much as the location. My question is has anyone stayed at either of these hotels recently and their opinion of same.
