The Puri Artha hotel consists of two parts, divided by a road. On one side of the road there's the reception, bar and restaurant, and on the other side there's the swimming pool and a small shop. There are guest rooms in both parts of the hotel. The road between them is narrow, but pretty busy - but it's no trouble crossing it as the hotel staff actually stop the traffic for you.
We stayed in a standard room in the part of the hotel where the pool is. The rooms are on a balcony surrounding a pretty little garden with a pond that has fish in it. The rooms are large, and have pretty much everything you need, except for a safe – but there are safety deposit boxes at reception free of charge. The bathroom could have been better, as it was small and a bit worn, but it was clean and overall not too bad.
Breakfast was at best mediocre, but I think you’ll find that it’s pretty much the same in medium-priced hotels in Indonesia. They do have an egg station, but the choice of filling for an omlette is pretty limited, one day it was just cheese and tomatoes. But the seating area is lovely, especially if you sit outside, and that makes up for the food. We also had dinner at the restaurant on one occasion, and the food was okay, maybe just a bit overpriced by Indonesian standards.
There’s a spa at the hotel but I didn’t get to use it due to lack of time. However, I did see the list of treatments that they offer, and there’s a lot to choose from and the prices are low.
The reception staff is friendly and offer any kind of assistance you may require, like getting taxis, etc.
The location is not so great, with absolutely nothing to do in the immediate area. However, taxis are cheap and you’ll have no trouble getting anywhere you need to go.
Oh, and don’t forget to exchange at least some money at the airport when you arrive, as unfortunately they don’t have a currency exchange at the hotel.
