“Very central - would stay again!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We stayed at the Haven for 3 nights during our first trip to Bali. As we booked within 14 days of our arrival we received 30% off the total cost, making it a great rate. We stayed in 3 different hotels and found the Haven to be the most central of the lot.
We had a one bedroom suite at the back of the building. It was absolutely beautiful - very spacious and had everything we could have needed. As we were in the back section we did not hear any of the restaurant noise others have spoken about in their reviews. We did find the walk to the front reception could be a bit tedious at times, but found a car park at the back to park our scooters so had less distance to walk to our room.
The staff all seemed very courteous and always said hello as we walked by. The front desk seemed slightly less conversational, however I think that was mostly due to the language barrier. We used their driver service twice to take us on day trips and the driver was so lovely both times.
The breakfast buffet was incredible. There was so much variety that I had something new every day. We called for room service once for dinner and found the food to be of a decent standard.
All in all we had a fantastic 3 night stay and I would not hesitate to stay here again. I would definitely look at staying in one of the private villas as they looked amazing, but the suites were certainly sufficient for us.

We stayed there for one night, our room was on the ground floor facing the pool. Room was clean, good size, with all the expected amenities for this hotel category. Nevertheless there was too much noise coming from both the pool and the corridor. If you stay there you might want to ask high floor rooms!
Service was friedly and staff helpful.

i checked my business friend to stay in this hotel one time.
the service at front office was a bit rude, maybe they were tired? LOL
overall hotel is good because of the location.
expect a busy and noisy band playing while you're eating.
oh well .... thank God this hotel is on a good location at seminyak

We stayed at the Haven in a suite for the first 6 nights , then upgraded to a private pool villa which was amazing. The suites are excellent large rooms overlooking the pool. However for that little bit extra the private villa is amazing...large bedroom and bathroom and a great private pool that catches the sunlight most of the day.

The service here is amazing.....friendly and professional staff who are so welcoming and always happy to help.

While it is located away from the beach you can get a shuttle every 2 hours to the beach or hire a scooter which is very cheap from nearby shops. Right in the heart of the shopping precinct.

We stayed at the haven for 8 nights at then decided to do 2 nights at the W. (overpriced, not great service) to be honest I would choose the Haven for value for money anyday :)

Thank you for making it a great stay in Bali.... Will defiantly return :)

My wife and I stayed here for a week and it was beautiful.The staff were friendly and helpful,the rooms were nice and the included buffet breakfast is to die for.I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Bali and we will definitely be staying here from now on.We stayed in a pool room which allowed us to walk out from our room and straight into the pool.We had several meals in the restaurant and the meals were great and reasonably priced.We got a great deal on the room prices through the internet.The hotel is huge and can cater for anyone and anything from standard rooms to villas.The property just keeps going back further to where the villas are and worth a look.This is our 5th trip and we have stayed in many hotels and this is our number 1.
If you need a driver then Wayan is very polite and knowledgable and is always happy to work around your schedule, parta_68@yahoo.com tell him Phil and Mr Blackman.
Some great and cheap places to eat in Seminyak are Warung Italia where the pizzas are huge and cheap.Also Bistro Batu Kali where the fire dancers come at night and have to be seen. In Kuta we ate at Gosha and had crumbed frogs legs which were so tasty and the big cocktail drinks were presented in a way that you have to try,Sorry don't want to spoil it. We also ate at Havana club in Kuta down Poppies lane which was cheap and big servings. A definite must do. Jonis restaurant and pool bar is awesome. The food is great and the bands each nite were really enjoyable playing a good mix of music. If you get hot you can jump in the pool to cool down which is positioned within the middle of the restaurant. For Art we went to Art republic in Seminyak and the couple who own it were so nice. Paul who is Australian and Maria is is Indonesion have a wealth of knowledge and some great art and very reasonable prices. IMPORTANT: if you don't feel like b
haggling or just had enough then this is the shop for you. Art Shop 14 (9) and ask for Ketut. All the clothing and bags etc are priced in Aus dollars and are really well priced. If they don't have what you want they will return within a couple of minutes with it. And last but not least for a Tattoo Robin Tattoo in Kuta. I had 3 tattoos whilst there to add to my collection and he was gifted. I gave him a picture of what I wanted and ask to draw it for me.The next day I returned and it was ready. I tested him out by making a small change which he did right in front of me in freehand and away I went. In case he has moved he can easily be found on facebook under Robin Tattoo in Kuta. Hope this helps. I have only listed the best of what we enjoyed on this visit as we went to heaps of other places but these were the very best. Obviously the best way to travel is with a driver or in Bluebird taxis only as they run a meter.

Room Tip: The villas at the back are unreal but a fair walk. The pool rooms on the bottom floor were awesome.

We enjoyed our 5 night stay in the haven, from where we ventured out to the seminyak beach (10 minutes walk or with shuttle 3 times a day ) to the shops and restaurants and spa places close by. The location is convenient albeit also next to the main road with lots of motorbike noise. However this mainly was audible in the restaurant during breakfast. The little gym is well maintained and perfect for a little workout before jumping into the pool. Pool is not huge and lacks a big of privacy as it is in the direct view of all the rooms. Rooms were large enough with a balcony and in a modern design. Bathroom is only closed via a glass door though. We felt that the cleaning particularly of the bath towels and of the coffee cups should have been more through as there were some stains.
Breakfast buffet offered a good choice of hot and cold dishes including some yummy waffles and omelettes. I had the persistent feeling that the juices were not pure and had been watered down though. The hotel basically offers 3 different accommodation types: hotel rooms, villas and suites. The villas and suites are at the back of the hotel which offer a more tranquil and serene setting.
All in all in all a good experience.

No nasty surprises with this hotel - good value, great location, extremely friendly and helpful staff, very nice breakfast with something for everyone. Close to the beach (10 minutes easy/safe walk), loads of restaurants and shops (including Bintang supermarket) near-by, but not too noisy in the hotel grounds. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms closest to "suites" and villas (e.g. 0011, 0012) are furthest from reception area (m...
