I almost didn't write a review because there are so many awesome reviews of this inn already. But that wouldn't be fair. It is an amzing location - right across from the ocean. Room 108 has a porch looking right at the ocean and you can clearly hear the waves. The suite is big and suitable for a family. Has a clever Murphy bed in the living room. Service is great. The bed is more comfortable than at home. The breakfast is ample and good selection of cereal and pastry and perfectly ripe fruit. everything is amaculately clean. Only criticism is could use more counter space in the bathroom.

My husband and I had an amazing stay at the Pantai Inn (from the day we walked in until the time we checked out). Everything was perfect! The view of the ocean is spectacular across the street from Pantai Inn and the children's pool is nearby. The entrance to our room had a gorgeous landscape. The one-bedroom villa that we were in was very spacious and very well-maintained. The rooms were immaculate. The surrounding area was beautifulIy landscaped and they pay attention to details. I was very impressed with the Balinese furnitures in every room. I especially adored the bathroom with rain shower, the fireplace, the king-sized canopy bed (the most comfortable bed ever!) and the sitting/breakfast area with the view of the ocean. The complimentary high-speed internet was fast. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent! The entire staff were outstanding and genuinely friendly and very attentive to all your needs. They made you feel at home. Special thanks to Bernardo, Ryan and Mark for going above and beyond to make our stay even more pleasurable. We will be back soon!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Pantai Inn to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We found this gem based on the outstanding reviews of previous visitors. The entire staff was genuinely friendly, hard working, and always had a smile on their faces. The lobby and patio area were serene and beautiful. Joseph kept the grounds immaculate. The thoughtfully designed landscaping was always well maintained and, with seabirds ever present, he kept the walkways and railings clean. Our room was a spacious and comfortable "one-bedroom villa with a partial ocean view" and, although we weren’t sure what our view would be like before we arrived, we were not disappointed. Since the Pantai Inn is located right on a narrow street with the ocean just on the other side, we could see the ocean from our living room window and we could be on the beach with a full ocean view in less than one minute. The free on-site parking and convenient location made it a joy to walk everywhere we wanted. We appreciated the Balinese furniture and carved items throughout the Pantai property. We enjoyed the special touches, such as the beautifully presented and plentiful continental breakfast, the outdoor patio, 24-hour fruit infused water, coffee, teas and sweets in the lobby, double rain shower heads, Turkish towels, and plush Italian bedding. The hand carved Balinese bed was gorgeous and the mattress and linens amazingly comfortable. The turn down bed service with chocolates and robes laid on the bed was simply bliss. On our first night, after a long walk along the ocean, we returned to our room to find the fireplace lit and a hand written card wishing us a Happy 25th Anniversary. Thank you to the entire staff of the Pantai Inn for taking the time and care to make your place so unique and for making our stay so memorable!

My husband and I recently stayed there on our Wedding Night! We came across the paradise of Pantai Inn when doing a morning walk through La Jolla. The Waterfall caught our eye and when we walked in we were so amazed by how intimate and true to Bali the Inn felt. My husband has been to Bali a few times and every piece of this place is imported from Bali so it makes you really experience a piece of Bali.

The staff was personable, friendly, informative, helpful and down to earth. They helped us plan our wedding night. I stayed there with my mom the night before and all of my bridesmaids and I got ready in the Ocean View Suite! The shower was AMAZING, double shower heads and great bath products, the fire place was beautiful and the view was perfect. In the morning they have a delicious spread for breakfast! Organic coffees and teas, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, bagels, jams, soymilk, almond milk and juices! I was very impressed and happy. There is a cute courtyard to enjoy peacefully in the morning, we opted for our suite porch that overlooked the ocean!

We were so thankful and though it was such a sweet touch that the staff wrote a beautiful card and decorated our room for our wedding night! Had a bottle of champagne and chocolates for us and the fire place on! The beds were SOOOO comfortable! Plush and cozy we felt like we were on a cloud. We liked them so much we asked the owner what kind they were and went and bought a brand new one for ourselves!

I would HIGHLY recommend this quaint, cozy paradise to any of my friends or family. It is the perfect location in La Jolla walking distance to anything, beautiful and pleasant :)

Happy Newlyweds,
The Clarks

I stumbled across The Pantai Inn a few weeks ago and haven't stopped dreaming of my next visit! It is truly a slice of Eden... Cleverly hidden behind yellow brick and red tile lies a paradise waiting for you..The staff greeting with a 5 Diamond smile is only mirrored by the enchantment you feel when you open your door and walk into the suite, "a million miles away" from wherever you happen to be from.. Beautiful decor, heavenly beds, artwork carefully chosen..I knew that not one detail had been overlooked and the comfort and spirit of the guests were all this Inn has in mind..The location, the staff, the view...Congratulations Pantai Inn..You are where dreams come true..and other hotels can only hope to be..

Room Tip: Take your pick..EVERY room is simply amazing!

My wife and I spent five nights at the Pantai Inn in mid-July and cannot say enough good things about this new place. The rooms are generous and are very well outfitted. We had a one-bedroom complete with a living room, fully equipped eat-in sized kitchen, and two flat screen TVs. Other options are studio, two- and three-bedroom suites also similarly outfitted. Most have some ocean view; some front the ocean. Pantai offers a very nice continental breakfast from 7-11 am that can be had in their pleasant patio area looking out at the ocean or taken back to the room. And key to a place in central La Jolla -- free on-site parking. It's centrally located only steps to restaurants and shopping and looks out over the pathway along the ocean. It's an easy place to come back to after a day out. The staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful. This is our third visit to La Jolla to visit family and friends in the San Diego area and there is no question that Pantai is the best place we've stayed there and we will come back. (Note: at the moment we found they're offering a good discount for pre-paying for your stay.)
