“Best Hotel ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2009

We stayed 12 nights at this hotel.
The location is fantastic you are close enough to walk to almost any where. Kuta is about a 5 - 10 minute walk.
You are close to many restaurants and have a choose of restaurants in the hotel .
The swimming pool is amazing with plenty of chairs also.
Waterbom park is just over the road.
Food Hall in Kartika Plaza is cheap but good.
Staff are all very friendly and helpful.
We think this is a beautiful hotel with everything you could ever need or want.
We will definitely be staying next time.

We stayed here for 5 nights in a standard room and we did not want to leave. The hotel has everything anyone could ask for.
The room was big and spacious with a mini bar, a balcony, large shower, king size bed and LCD TV.
The buffet breaky had eveything you could think of and caters for all tastes.
The staff were so helpful and nothing was trouble for them, the room was cleaned everyday, taxi service organized for you and also a very handy guest services who can book any day trip for you.
The hotel has a main pool with a swim up pool bar, a Gym, tennis court and even a kids club, kids pool and kids play ground.
It has its own private beach and plenty of restaurant inside the hotel if you don't wish to leave the premises.
The hotel is located next door to the discovery shopping centre and about 5 minutes walk to waterbomb park.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone, families, couples, and singles and i will be back to stay again in the near future.

I stayed at the Discovery Kartika Plaza with my partner and another couple.
It is a very impressive property, beautifully designed and the staff where so friendly.
I am a travel agent and would highly reccommend this to couples who want a romantice getaway, also families as there are plently of activities.
the buffett breakfast was AMAZING. there was everything you could think of and more, and it was so tastey!
we stayed in a standard room. it was quite large and had a massive king size bed that was like heaven to sleep in. The bathroom was clean and a descent size but could use a freshen up. On a whole, there is nothing bad I can say about this hotel. The rooms, food, location and service is second to none.
I will definetly be going back!!!

I must say first of all "lots and lots of Thanks" to Security & Reception staff for their generous help and assistance when we fell fowl to the tricks of so called "Authorised Money Changes" who operate from the back of hawker stalls. They not only listened to our story, but took us back to the vendor in the Hotel Bus along with 2 Security Staff and the Conceige and obtained our money from the Vendor. We feel this act alone will insure our return to Bali and continued recommendation to others of their beautiful Hotel.
On the subject of the Resort, we could not find fault with anything, the position great, plenty of space in room and bathroom. Pool is something else, HUGE and lots of pool lounges. Garden and ground wonderful. Breaky plentiful. Many Thanks

Discovery Plaza is a 20 year old hotel on the Kuta beach. The location could'nt be better as there is a lovely mall right next door with lots of shopping and eating option. Kuta square which is the main market is a ten minute walk. Grea pool, very freidly staff; have a kids club where u can leave your children in great care; exclellent breakfast and locaton right on the beach opposite the waterbom park... what more could u ask for.

Only hiccup is the hotel airconditioning... had to change three rooms to get the aircon right.

The hotel is located at a very strategic place as there is everything such as restaurants, pubs, shopping mall, convenient shops nearby, & the beach is just right in fronf of the pool. The room is clean, not too big but fine for us. I love the pool as its big enough to swim, or sit at the pool bar for drinks. Plus, the staff hotel are helpful & friends. I dont think its a bad choice unless you looking for something really luxurious.

We found the Kartika a large hotel with friendly staff and all the facilities that you would require. It is in a good location for shopping at Discovery Plaza and close to Waterbom. The rooms were very standard and I thougth expensive for what they were. Very standard fit out and the mini bar was tiny with no freezer section to make ice. The breakfast was good but standard with the usual egg station, pastry section, fruit and asian section. We were on the top floor (4th) and it was serviced by a small elevator that was a fair walk away from our room. While the service and facilites were good I would not stay there again as the hotel was just to big for my liking. I have stayed at a number of hotels in bali and do not think it was worth the high price.
