Stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for 3 nights, which is huge. A great place for 3 or 4 nights to have a game of golf, visit some great sites and just chill. If you want the hussle and bussle of Kuta its about a 30 minute taxi ride. Golf course is within walking distance. Dreamland beach and other tourist spots are all a short taxi ride away. Drivers are aleays on stand by at the front of the hotel or you can get reception to call a taxi for you.
Staff are wonderful and very friendly.

We've stayed at the 1 bedroom suite. It's very spacious & nice. Like the kitchen & stove so much, since we were travelling with 2 kids (one of them is infant) so we're still have to prepare + cook the organic stuff for her. The price is very very good for 5 stars suite at Bali. The hotel offers free shuttle to Dreamland beach by request (but when we requested the operator said, "Ok, we'll inform you before the shuttle go" but turned out they never let us know. So we think the minus things are only 2: very few facilities at hotel and poor operator / receptionist.

Room Tip: Price wise: Choose the suite instead of standard room

Le Grande was a lovely hotel but it was just a little out of the way. I had a deluxe room which was massive! The room was beautifully clean and very spacious. I got there early and the room wasn't ready yet. While they got me into the room very quickly I notice a few of the little things were missing. (laundry bags, price lists etc) Nothing major but a bit of hassle to organise

Staff were lovely although some of them really struggled with English. Bar staff were fabulous - they make a mean Pina Colada B-) Finding tourist information did prove to be a bit of a challenge as some staff seemed to be confused about what services were available, prices etc. Nevertheless they tried hard to please and nothing seemed to be to much trouble. I recommend going for a massage here, they were awesome. Especially when followed by a couple of Pina Colada's by the pool

Getting around from here did seem to be a bit more difficult than in other parts of Bali. I recommend booking a car & driver to take you to the sights. Although do your research and be sure of where you want to go. However if you just want to chill out for a few days, play a bit of golf and get away from it all Le Grande is a great place.

The hotel overall is nice. It has pretty lobby, nice swimming pool and overall spacious rooms. Its key weakness lies in its location. It is quite far from everything else, and also deep inside a seldom used golf resort. From the main gate of the resort, you need almost 8 minutes by car to reach the gate of the hotel. Of course, quietness could be a plus, except in this case, it creates a few problems. Many guests staying at the hotel seem to be part of tour group, which can be noisy at times; the bar is usually empty, which makes having a drink by the bar into a very "solitary" and strange experience; guests usually need at least 1 hour to reach Kuta, 40 minutes to Uluwatu or even 2 hours to Ubud. With limited time for vacationing and traveling to experience such a wonderful island like Bali, I don't think staying here will be a convenient choice. The hotels in any of the beach town are plenty and not that cost prohibitive.

3 stars some rooms, 4 star at best. We were amongst about 15-20 other rooms booked for a wedding. Almost everyone felt it was their worst experience. Well travelled persons will know for sure this is no 5 star. They took 30min to check us in and it wasnt even busy. On seeing our room, first thing - a lizard in our room (not acceptable - it's considered a pest in the same league as cockroaches in asia)! No fridge (there was a void where it was supposed to be); our toilet couldnt flush properly (low pressure); the sink slow to drain; the stupid bathroom had glass facing the room with privacy curtains that couldnt close properly - it'd be ok if it were tastefully done like in a real 5 star hotel but this is cheap humour. Towels werent available and arrived later but was grotty and worn; the shower had no holder (so you put your soap/gels on the floor!). When we complained about the fridge, we were asked "did you order a fridge?" err... do we need to order our bed and tv too? It is listed on their website that a fridge is included anyway *roll eyes*. We were a family and was given twin beds.While another couple had a presidential suite with king bed. This presidential suite is 4 star by world standards. Their shower floods - water slow to drain. And had a lizard in their kitchen and lots of lizard droppings in the bathroom.
Room #3: the guests ordered a 3rd bed; however no sheets ever arrived for that bed, so they had to share. They complained they couldnt sleep coz the aircon was making so much noise just outside their room. They werent impressed with the "romantic" curtains in the bathroom either that also couldnt close nicely like ours.
Unfortunately, the hen's night had been booked at this hotel too. It was poorly managed by the hotel. They didnt have the champagne they prebooked 5 weeks prior amongst many things that went wrong.
Oh... the families who stayed here all agree that it's super unsafe for kids. The railings were so wide apart , a kid can put their head thru it. Another railing outside our group's guest room was about to break apart and is absolutely wide enough for a child to fall thru easily.

Poor management, poor maintenance overall. It will suit those who are on 3 star budgets if you're willing to put up with broken, missing things and poor plumbing. there is nothing outside this place - no shops, no restaurants nearby, so if you got to be here, dont extend past your event, you'd just be bored and there is hardly any taxi who knows how to get here (one of our guests' cabbies got lost for 2 hr on a 30 min journey). There is only golf, so golfers who just want to golf might find it affordable.
NOT suitable for those with young kids, those who expect a 5 star like Westin Hotel standard; those who are from developed countries where 5 star means 5 star (eg. Australia, UK, USA, NZ, Ireland, France, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc...). AVOID this hotel IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF LIZARDS!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a presidential suite if you can. We did ask to change room to a king room becoz of kids but...

Didier G, General Manager at Le Grande Bali, responded to this review, August 8, 2012
Dear Nev_au,
Greetings from Le Grande, Pecatu.

I would like to start by thanking you for taking the time to comment on your stay in Le Grande. It is only through invaluable feedback such as yours that we can maintain and improve upon our standards of quality and service.

I would like to sincerely apologize for the aspects of your stay encountered by your group that were disappointing.
I have been appointed General Manager of Le Grande and the hotel is now under new international hotel chain management by the management company responsible for the national and Trip Advisor award-winning properties of U Chiang Mai and U Inchantree Kanchanaburi in Thailand. Le Grande will be re-branded as U Agathis Pecatu Bali later in 2012.

Since taking over the resort the comments received from our guests have been overwhelmingly positive as we are dedicated to providing the same levels of quality, luxury and service experienced by the guests in our other U hotels therefore I was extremely concerned about your experience at Le Grande and would like to personally address the issues you raised.

The slow check-in. Unfortunately there was an error on our part with your group details. I have instigated measures to ensure that this does not occur in the future.

We have employed the services of a professional pest control company who have undertaken a full hotel eradication of the lizard problem.

We were at full occupancy when your group stayed and I regret that there were insufficient fridges to accommodate all the guests. These are now on order. We have also ordered new bathroom curtains, shower holders and luxury toweling for all our rooms. All of the above will be arriving in the very near future.

We are currently running a full care program in the resort utilizing the Housekeeping and Engineering departments to deal with the poor drainage, water pressure and air conditioning issues.

The safety of our guests and their families is of paramount importance and the matters you raised regarding the railings are at the very top of our maintenance list.

I must further offer my heartfelt apologies for the oversight with your group’s champagne and the lack of bed linen for the extra bed. Again I have introduced strict measures to avoid any disappointment in the future.

It is my own personal aim and that of our group to place Le Grande at the very top of the luxury resorts in Indonesia. Along with the aforementioned resorts we will be opening the 5-star U Sunsuri Phuket in the next few months and our latest property, the brand new 5-star Eastin Grand Sathorn in Bangkok, has already established itself among the top hotels in the city with extremely positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Our group’s mission is to offer superlative levels of comfort, quality and service in all our properties.

In closing I would like to say it was a genuine pleasure to serve you and your group as our guests and it would be an honor if you would visit us in the very near future to see the improvements we have made in all areas to offer our guests a true 5-star experience.

Best regards,

Didier Gourmaud
General Manager

We stayed one week at this beautiful resort in July. We travelled with a 11 month old baby and a 2,5 year old.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious, modern and very clean. We had the best housekeeping that we have ever experienced. The restaurant (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and room service was very good. The hotel has a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.

The facilities, pools and spa were very nice and clean. We found the location of the hotel good. As we had a rental car the whole stay we could easily get around. The closest beach (Dreamland beach) was only 3 minutes away.

We tried the surf at Uluwatu, Jimbaran, Dreamland, Kuta, Airports and Pedang Pedang. If you are not in the water paddling for waves, a day at the beach can be rather stressful. You have to bargain for a parking, for a sun chair, and you will be approached a numerous times and asked if you want to purchase fruits, drinks, sarongs, crafts etc. We found it nice to come back to the hotel in the afternoon and RELAX in peace and quiet, and enjoy good food that did not cause stomach pain.
