Have stayed at Puri Raja twice, once in Deluxe and once in superior rooms in last 12 months.
The English language channels are fairly limited. From what I recall there was the Australia channel which is basically the ABC and a news channel of BBC World. The rest were local indonesian channels or italian/french etc.Even MTV had local asian hosts.
There is also no DVD player nor a movie purchase service via the TV.
In short, not much english language TV at all.
This is probably a factor in why Puri Raja is a 3 star hotel and why their rates offer such good value. I would guess other higher star rated hotels are likely to have more channels.
You could always hire a DVD for your stay and watch movies??
I highly recommend Puri Raja regardless of small TV channels available. It is very much a quality but no-frills resort.
Can you advise if the breakfast is buffet or ala carte ?
Is it OK ?
Breakfast is a la carte.
FYI like most meals in Bali the portions are not that big so if you like a few pieces of toast with brekkie or a good portion of bacon ask for it when you order and they will normally oblige.
Breakfast is a la carte. The key is to order something different each day to keep up the variety so you don't get stuck having the same thing each day. You can pretty much choose any combination of dishes from the menu in moderation.
They are pretty accommodating to what you require. It is cooked fresh to order so takes a little longer than if you were at a buffet but at least it's reasonable portions and you don't tend to eat too much. The restaurant has a lovely aspect with a beach view.
Loved the Puri Raja have stayed there twice. Yes the english speaking channels are limited to 2 but thats enough. You really dont go to Bali to watch TV. The rooms are nice & very clean. The grounds are spotless with lovely gardens along the paths in front of the rooms.
The breakfast are fine. Nice freshly cooked breaky plate of fruit slices, crossiants, bacon, eggs, toast, sausage, indo meals. You order want you want each morning they serve tea & coffee as soon as you sit down.
Im sure your friends will like this hotel & it's friendly staff.
