Stayed 4 nights. Been to other club med's before. Family with young kids in tow.
Club med reliability. All inclusive stays. Kid friendly. Basically everything you've come to expect from club med.
Dining area is the best feature of this place, large enough to accommodate everyone, great ambience well designed seating & tables.
The beach as with all beaches is sublime, though we've seen better beaches, this one is ok.
Bali outfit looks tired & badly in need of a facelift. Sprawling estate means management needs to be on their toes to pull off a 5 star experience. Unfortunately, as of the time of this review, our family has felt that current management fails. This is at best a 3 star experience. Rooms are poorly maintained, shoddy. Too many problems to enumerate without getting flustered. We've seen better club meds. Some minor issues like bedding specifications not fulfilled (ask for a queen size, get a twin instead, with no way of changing easily). When will they get it that much of people's impressions begin with the rooms. It doesn't matter if you have great service (theirs is average) & great beaches & grounds, it's the rooms that leave a lasting impression, or not.
The swimming pool is as inviting as warm champagne or purple pasta. It lacks any features, is too small to cater for a full house & is too warm on a hot day. There'll be many who will give it a miss for all of the above reasons.
Dirty beaches. It's not a fantastic beach, but adequate. Sand is blackish (not sure if it's due to pollution or just the natural form), beaches are not the purest or cleanest, muddy almost swampy by nature. With flotsam and occasional minor oil slicks. But if you stick to the club med maintained areas, it makes for reasonable beach activity, nothing fantastic.
You'll find everything that you'd expect from a typical Club med holiday. You'll end up relaxed & refreshed, with a family that's been entertained &well fed. The Bali club med however, sticks out for some of the wrong reasons- poorer room quality & so-so service (we've experienced warmer & better service at other club meds.). We've realised that the local management is so critical to the final experience despite the brand name. Implementation, enforcement & the soul of each club med swings so widely depending on who the manager is. It shows. Club med should perform more meaningful internal audits to ensure consistent quality in their stable of properties.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At your feet lie clear waters and fine sand beaches. The Village of Bali is one of Club Med(R)'s most beautiful, an Indian Ocean pearl set in the Sunda archipelago. Beneath the coconut palms, by pools of lotus and water lilies, the bungalows with their sweeping roofs take their inspiration from Balinese architecture. A spirit of serenity wafts over Bali, and you can discover a way of celebrating life that is unique. Bali promises moments of grace for young and old, families and honeymooners too. ... more less
