The Sari Beach Hotel formerly Sari Beach Inn

Hi,

has anyone stayed in a villa at the Sari Beach Hotel Legian?

also are any of their Superior rooms adjoining?

Thanks

The villa near reception at Sari Beach is large and is great for a group. It's fairly basic though and was in need of refurbishment a few years ago. The superior rooms are not near the villa. They are on the opposite side.

The superior rooms are quite small and I don't think they are adjoining. Some have small private courtyards. The rooms near reception just have a bit of a wall between the decks. There is only one villa. There is also a "house" above the reception area. Not sure what accom it offers though.

It is a very quiet hotel and not good for kids. The rooms are OK, but are getting a bit run down. Location is great. The hotel is very hard to get into as it only has about 20 rooms.

Thanks for your reply.

Why is it not good for kids?

It has always been a hotel that is very hushed. The clientele are predominately European, over 35 and like their peace and privacy, This is why they go there. There are few places left like this where professional and childless travelers can go who want to escape the thrill of marco polo and children shrieking or just having noisy fun.

The Kumala Pantai began like this and I loved it, then they expanded and aimed for families. This would suit if you have kids.

If you have children I suggest you avoid the Sari Beach. The pool is also very small.

yes, Linda is right. (and thanks for recommending the Sari Beach for us a couple of years ago..)

As for kids, the grounds and pool are small, there is nowhere for the children to go and play. In the superior rooms, your kids would feel very "caged". Agree that those of us who stay there would not welcome noisy kids (no issue with children per se.....just let them be in a place that can entertain and welcome them).

Rooms are also not really styled for children, just double or twins in each.

There are lots of child friendly places mentioned here almost every day. Again, Linda is correct, Kumala Pantai, which is just up the road, also beachfront , will be more suitable for children and let them enjoy their holiday more.
