Hotel Kumala Pantai
Ranked #30 of 252 Hotels in Kuta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Spent 7 nights here late May and must say that for the price paid (approx $ 85.oo incl b/fast) you could not do better. Rooms are large as is the fully tiled bathroom complete with bath, very comfortable bed with fantastic pillows, two great swimming pools, beautiful gardens full of statues, above average breakfast. We would recommend this hotel but for the mainly Australian clientele they should offer cereal other than corn flakes.The cooked dishes were all hot and full of flavour. The location is excellent, it fronts the best part of Legian Beach and is a quiet location. There is nightly entertainment, usually a 4 or 5 piece band plus dancers. We found all staff members to be very friendly and are obviously well trained. We would recommend this hotel to all fellow travellers looking for quality and value for money in Legian.

I first stayed at Kumala Pantai in 2008 and I wasn't disappointed when I came back this time with my partner. The location is fantastic, right on the beach with restaurants right out the front and shops all around you. This is on the border of Legian and Seminyak so the location is ideal. Given the price, you get way more than you would expect. The two pools are great, the staff are fantastic, the food is brilliant, the breakfast is good. What more could you ask for in Bali? It is walking distance to nearly everything and to go to the main shopping street or Eat Street is between 50 cents to $1 for a cab (if you don't want to do the long walk). We walked to Ku de ta and Potato Head which was about half hour/forty minutes along the beach. I can see why this hotel is consistently booked out. The rooms are a bit dated, but this didn't bother us at all. The rooms are spacious, clean, the bathrooms are huge, the water pressure in the shower is perfect and there is always hot water. Will definitely come back again. Great for families, friends, couples or the solo traveller.

Room Tip: Try to get in S or SG block as they nearly all have a pool view.

We got back yesterday from an 8 night stay at the Kumala Pantai and loved it. We had adjoining rooms, one for us and the adjoining one for our two teenage daughters. We paid $90 per night per room with breakfast included so great value for money.

I didn't give 5 stars because the lobby is uninviting, dark and cluttered but don't let this first impression put you off. The rest of the hotel, grounds and pools are beautiful.

Yes the towels are old but they're just like old towels we all have at home, they're worn but they're clean and the do the job. The rooms are cool, clean and the bathrooms are big. A bit of mildew here and there but nothing to complain about. This hotel is great value for money considering we paid more for a 4 person room at the Bali Dynasty 2 years ago and although I would've given the Dynasty 4 1/2 stars you are paying a lot more for that hotel.

The location of the Kumala Pantai is great and their staff in the restaurants, grounds and the cleaners were all very friendly and helpful. The desk staff not so helpful as others have said, perhaps though it's due to the lobby, lol.

At the street entrance you can hop across the road to a little internet/laundry shop and the laundry service here is great. I had 7 items of clothing washed, ironed and packaged smelling lovely and fresh for IDR 20,500 (about $2-80 AUD) so I went back all week, fantastic value.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor of H block at the street end of the hotel because they were the last room...

Our friends have stayed at the Kumala for years and we just returned from our second stay with a large group of friends. Enjoyed the ground floor Y block last time, and top floor of S this time (I prefer the latter - nice breeze in the evening, treetop and sky view, but my husband preferred ground floor on Y - each to his own!). Staff are always friendly, rooms clean, gardens gorgeous and lush, breakfasts quite adequate and other meals very good. We enjoyed some terrific music in the restaurant in the evenings. Location is perfect to access the beach, small local shops, and you're close to shopping centres and other major attractions. Problem with our air con was fixed promptly. We love the spa there - high quality services, peaceful setting. As other reviewers have mentioned, only negative is the towels which are shabby and let this place down, and people leaving towels on pool chairs early in the morning but not showing up until after 1 pm. Pretty annoying! Love the Kumala.

Room Tip: Top floor bright but perhaps not great if you have problem climbing stairs.

I have been trying to get a room here for a few years, but never been lucky. I chose to stay our first 4 nights here just to try the hotel as i usually stay in other hotels along this street. We had a room in Y Block, i liked this location as it was close to the front of hotel for a quick access to the street. We tend to use this entrance more so then the beach entrance. We had a view of the large pool. Lovely huge balcony. The room was large, we had a fold out bed for our son also. Still plenty of room to move. Room was clean.

Breakfast was fine, enough choices for a short stay. Lovely to eat outside with the beach in view. We also ate at the Italian restaurant one night and food was good.

Pool looked very inviting, was so huge. Unfortunately i didn't get the chance for a swim, too busy shopping. I noticed people were putting their towels on the sun beds and then going off for the day. In the afternoon the pool was very busy. Had a kids section down one end which my son used.

Gardens are well maintained. Staff were friendly. I would stay here again if i could get a room to suit my dates.

Well located with plenty of restaurants, spas and shops close by. I used Briella spa opposite which was lovely.

Room Tip: I liked Y Block for easy access to street. Depends where you like to be. Other rooms looked equally...

Have stayed here a number of times now and will keep going back. Staff are very helpful and it is always clean and tidy there. A number of different room types to suit everyone. The suites are amazing, and a little kitchenette would make it even better. However, as room service is really cheap there is no need to "do" for yourself. Pools are amazing, and long enough to have a decent swim. Plenty of good places to eat around there, and the usual shopping markets etc. a much better proposition than staying right in the heart of Kuta. It's about a 20 minute ride to discovery and. Matahari shopping mall. Cost is rp70,000 from the airport in one of the bluebird taxis. Breakfast is good and the view is to die for in the mornings!

Room Tip: SG block seems to be the newest ones

stayed here for first two weeks in may in junior suite. at check-in staff were very helpful and this remained with all staff throughout our stay. room is serviced daily to our expectations. free breakfast was included and found it very adequate with plenty of choice. the hotel probably could do with an update such as new towels and maintenance on pool as many tiles are lifting off. position was good for cheap shopping and many eaterys and has beach frontage. our only complaint would be about the selfish/rude people who put towels etc on the pool furniture early in the morning to reserve them and then only turn up for half hour late in afternoon. this is a poor practice in the tourism industry that should be stopped.
