Is the Kumala Pantai suitable for travelling with an infant?

Have read the reviews seems like a good place at a great price & great location. Is this hotel suitable when travelling with an infant? Are there loads of stairs, hard to get around with a stroller/pusher?

Are there any other hotels nearby apart from Jayakarta & Legian Beach?

Its in a very handy location. Great cafes out on the beachfront (turn right) and just a short stroll to Double Six Street which has lots of shops. There is a street out on the beachfront which is closed off to traffic and you can walk all the way into Kuta with ease.

There are lots of hotels in the area.

thanks for that info that map really helped - I roughly know the area so I know I want to stay around here as I have stayed further away in the past (Adika Sari, Jayakarta) I was looking for something a littler closer to the action that has easy access to the beach & the road to walk along as we have a 1 year old & I will have to use the stroller at some points & this road is ideal for walking along with a stroller. Can you suggest any other hotels that are on par with or a bit better than the Jayakarta rooms we liked the Kumala because it looks much nicer than other 3 star rated hotels in Bali. Don't want anything too run down or old style & it must have a good pool & be child friendly.

Yes, there are some lovely hotels the beach end of Dhyana Pura but the beach front street ends at Double Six so no good with a stroller.

greatsosgreatplaces,

(a hard name)

KPantai is v nice, though if you don't get a ground floor room, stairs would be inconvenient for stroller/vyoung kids. Outside, and around pool area is ok for strollers and has a seperated 'kids' area of pool, in cnr under full shade, of varying depth from 1ft to 3ft, though smallish, but in a good spot for parents, as are a few tables.lounges there use whilst watch kids, parents can also swim in main pool with a 'wall' between areas and be close to kids

Standard/superior rooms are ok, but might be a bit crowded with young child, depend upon age, bedding needs etc. Deluxe rooms on Gr floor near restaurant are large enough to have extra bedding and plenty of room, Otherwise the Ambassadors suite, which can be 1 &/or 2 rooms, with an interconnecting dining/lounge area between rooms, and on ground floor is very nice and large.

So depending upon age of infant, KP is a good choice, particularly if you go for the deluxe rm or suite.

Email KP and ask 'Desi' (she is day manager) info abt rooms available/price etc, she is v helpful.

Another poss is Melasti Beach Resort, in same area, on the beach a bit further south from KP (abt 500m) on other side of Jayakarta, but not as 'nice' all round as KP, but advantage is it has good size family suites, which have a main b/rm with king size bed, large room, with the entrance room with a sliding partition to separate off from main, has 2 drop down (out of the cupboard) single beds, so can use only 1 bed and have more room, and their deluxe rooms in 'new wing' are a large size, easy to fit cot/small bed and ground fl ones open onto pool. MBR main pool has a separate kids area at one end shallow depth, in shade etc, so is v useful for kids.

We have stayed at both, a couple of times, and although KP is better than MBR, and I like it better, different times require different places - we leave 14 July, and are staying at MBR, because there are 12 in our group, (4 couples & kids) we are taking - 2 gr fl deluxe new wing - 1 couple and 1 couple with 3mnth old staying in cot;

2 family suites - 1 couple with 17yr daughter, 1 couple with 2yr old & 6mnth old,

Wouldn't recommend Jayakarta, LBH used to have nice family rooms/suites, but haven't been there in years - might check it out again.

Cheers

Mark
