We love Le Meridien Jimbaran! Everything is brand new and sparkling clean. The room is very big and very modern. It's one of the nicest room i've been to. The bathroom looks and feels luxurious. The lobby decor is very nice too. The staffs are very courteous and makes you feel welcomed.
If you are planning to eat Jimbaran seafood, its just located right across the hotel.
Since it is a brand new hotel, alot of taxi driver still doesn't know the location of Le Meridien yet.

Room Tip: The lagoon view room are beautiful

Not sure where to start... After 4 days in Ubud, we finally discovered a place where could escape the island's congested streets full of commerce and heat. The property's modern architecture, well-chosen sountrack broadcasted throughout the property, design accents, and landscaping makes you feel as if you are being transported back to 60s to Nice or Cannes. The staff is very attentive. Endless choices of western and Asian breakfast choices. Coffee is served from an awesome coffee / ice-cream shop which is part of the property (coffee is by illy!). Not to mention tapas are served at the roof top bar Smoqee (reference to the smoke coming from the neighboring fish fry restaurants - a must visit at the sunset) - free between 5pm and 7pm. Pool is saltwater. Lagoon access rooms are quite unique as you can take a swim without leaving your room. For babies / kids, there is a playroom filled with toys, drawing stuff, games, video games, etc. Supervision is awesome and can arrange babysitting for 55K. Going scuba tomorrow morning arranged through hotel. Beach is cleaner than many around Bali (although oceans away from those of Thailand). can walk to Intercontinental for a drink to watch sunset unless you grab tapas at Smoqee's. Overall, great experience and unique property with access to one of the best beaches in Bali.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon stay in Bali at this hotel and it was a great experience. We were greeted by some very friendly staff members upon our arrival. The check in process was fast and we were taken to our room right away. There was a friendly note from one of the managers wishing us a great stay along with a small chocolate cake that said "happy honeymoon" on it which was so nice. The room was beautifully decorated and clean. We had one of the pool access rooms which was great! We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the hotel every morning which had almost anything you can think of on it. Everything was delicious. We also enjoyed the free tapas the hotel offered a couple of the nights we were there. The hotel is a minute's walk to Jimabaran beach which is the famous area for grilled seafood. It's a great place to go for a casual, romantic dinner on the beach. I would definitely recommend this hotel for your next stay in Bali!

Room Tip: pool access is great!

Stay here with a group of friends after a few days of diving. The location is good. Near seafood restaurants and these restaurants are beach front. ie, near the beach.

The room is spacious. We had a room with pool access and they are on the ground floor obviously. Huge bathroom!

Service staffs are friendly and are very helpful. Some minor lapses which I didn't really mind. Maybe short of staff because the low occupancy?

Breakfast selection is great and good value for money (there is a 30% discount for guests). The signature dishes are excellent. However, there were 2 occasions when I ordered my drink and they did not come. I just ordered plain straight up coffee. Didn't think they were difficult to remember. But it wasn't a sore point for me as the food was good enough for me to overlook that.

Bottom-line: It was an enjoyable stay for me and my group. Good value for money.

Greetings from Le Meridien Bali Jimbaran

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent journey with us and for your feedback.
I am glad that despite some minor hiccups you and your friends were able to enjoy our Resort and its features.

The rooms layout is quite impressive I agree and the bathrooms are just a beauty, with the luxurious marble design and the space, it complements the rest of the room. If on top of that you had the experience of the lagoon access rooms, it sets the mood into a holiday mode.
I am pleased you were able to take benefit of our discounts and we do try to always have offers available. Good value for money makes a difference.

cmkoh, I trust you and your friends had a safe journey back home and I hope we will have the opportunity to host you again.

Stayed in May just prior to the official opening on a business trip. Upgraded to a lagoon room with balcony pool access which was very nice. Assume the upgrade was because there were very few guests yet due to soft opening but would suggest these are the preferred rooms and provide a sense of calm with the water outside the room. The pool has many tributaries away from the main pool for some added privacy leading to the pool access rooms.
Rooms are large and modern with nice finish. Lovely bed and huge bathroom. Not sure about the glass wall between the shower and toilet? Main room is bright and cheerful like the staff who were enthusiastic if somewhat green in terms of experience. Location is close to airport and beach. Lots of choices for on beach dining a short stroll away.
Breakfast buffet was very good without being an embarrassment of food likely to be wasted. Use the bottled water for drinking and teeth brushing!!!!!!
Internet was not overly reliable with frequent drop outs.
More suited to a couple than business travel. Overall very good with lots of potential to be fantastic once all the final touches and some experience added. Is a fair way from the main tourist area of Kuta (perhaps a good thing) and traffic to those areas is difficult due to road work leading to the APEC summit later this year. As my only visit to Bali I am grateful to have stayed in such lovely surroundings and believe in the future with more guest the buzz of the hotel will pick up.
Highly recommended

Room Tip: Ground floor pool access rooms are a must. No benefit in being on second floor. Some pool rooms are...

Dear YoungAgain2011

Greetings from Le Meridien Bali Jimbaran

Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
I am happy to read that we have been able to make you discover our lagoon access rooms, which are indeed very popular.
Being able to go straight into our unique saltwater lagoon from the balcony is enjoyable and it indeed produces as sense or soothing and calm to be close to the water.

I will certainly share your feedback on the food with our culinary team. Nothing is as much important a yummy breakfast. After all it is the most important meal of the day.

The layout of the resort allows in fact the light to go through the rooms and with their generous sizes and luxurious features; it makes one feel like at home.

Whether it is for leisure or business, we do cater for both, through our location, close to the airport and to the white sand beaches of Jimbaran, without forgetting the famous sea food restaurant just across the street.

I do believe that feedback is a gift and I appreciate your time taken.

I trust you will keep on considering us should your travels bring you back to the “island of the gods”.

Warm regards

We had to kill a cockroach in our room on our first night. Called the front desk and the duty manager came to our room within ten minutes. The DM offered a new room but it was already late and our stuff was all over the room. However there was no other follow up on the next day. The front office manager apologized for the inconvenience only after i sent an email and left a note in the room requesting me to meet him at the lobby "at my best time". Went to the lobby and the FO manager had already left and asked the duty manager to send his apologies. A waste of my time. This is the kind of treatment that a Starwood Preferred Guest receives.

Other than this small hygiene issue and the way the staff handled my inconvenience, it is a nice hotel.

I picked this hotel to stay for our last three days in Bali, after a dive safari around Bali. We wanted to rest and relax and enjoy the resort, and the resort really delivers. We expected some glitches due to its newness, but all in all it was a very pleasant experience.

Good points:
- Free upgrade to lagoon access rooms when we asked at check in time (thank you Franklyn!)
- Yummy welcome drink: tamarind, palm sugar, and pandan leaves, so good!!!
- Awesomely comfortable beds and pillows
- Staff who were eager to please and always friendly, they arranged for a doctor to visit when my friend fell sick, much appreciated!
- Saltwater lagoon accessible from my balcony
- Close proximity to the fantastic seafood places
- Great security, checking on us when we had the door open while waiting for a friend to arrive.
- Fantastic massage at the spa
- Prompt service whenever needed (excluding restaurant service)
- Quiet and peaceful environment
- Quick and efficient check in and check out

Need improvement:
- Confused service at Bamboo Chic. Drinks only arriving after repeated orders and some never arrived, servers getting confused by food orders, and not telling us that the signature breakfast dishes were included in the breakfast set. They also told us we couldn't order a la carte.
- Good spread at breakfast, but a lot of the food were dry and unappetizing when we arrived at 9AM. Smoked salmon had gray edges, stews that had developed a dry crust due to prolonged heating, dishes with congealed sauces. The made-to-order dishes were not any better, our oatmeal souffle arrived completely blackened on top, and the croque madame arrived with the eggyolk already burst and the sauce sloppled on top so it looked supper messy and gross (see pic). The fresh honeycomb was a good concept but there was no honey to be had. I took a slice of Brie cheese that had internal mold--I'm no cheese expert but I've never seen Brie with internal mold. I decided not to eat it.
- Room fixtures falling off, despite being a very new hotel.
- No bath mat on the balcony even though we had a lagoon access pool.
- Mosquito spray was provided but the canister was empty
- Pool bar counter was so high we had to climb on the stool to reach for drinks.
- Airport transfer had no special touches. Maybe I've been spoiled by InterContinental but they give me a cold towel and a bottle of water in the car, and the security guard at the gate gave each of the ladies a rose at arrival--that's what I call service.

All in all, I would come back, but I'd avoid the buffet breakfast.
