“Great Hotel, Great Service, Great Pool and Great Mojitos!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

My husband and I are currently staying in the U Paasha, having been here a week and with another week to go.

It's a great hotel and while there are a couple of small issues, the positives definitely outweigh the negatives.

So here's all the good points:

1. Location. The hotel is located on the main street "Eat Street" in Seminyak and when you walk out the front door, there are cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques everywhere. There are also lots of taxis going up and down the street so you can pick one up very quickly.

2. Style: The hotel is really modern and hip. The rooms are huge, with a very comfy king size bed, a small sofa and a day bed. There's a mini bar and tea/ coffee making facilities and you get 2 complimentary bottles of water daily.
The room has a balcony but it's not really a working balcony. It's long and just deep enough to stand out on but if you open up the huge french doors of the room then it feels as if you're sitting outside anyway. The shower is really big although the water pressure is not the best we've ever had (but not the worst either). There's an iPod dock in the room which is great. You also get to choose your own toiletries. We chose Jasmine and they are really lovely. Oh and there's also a safe in the room.

3. The Pool: The pool is fabulous. It's on the roof and is surrounded by nice trees. It also has speakers around it and the music played is lovely. We've never had a problem with not getting a subbed, there's always plenty and there are plenty of large towels. There's also a basket with sunscreen in it if you want! The water temperature has been lovely while we've been here. There's a happy hour every night between 5pm and 8pm where you can get cocktails for £2 each and they have a great cocktail menu, and there are always plenty of staff going around the pool so you don't even have to get up off your sunbed! You can also get food but we haven't tried any.

4. The Gym. There's a really nice gym beside the pool. It has 2 cross trainers, a few treadmills, a bike and a multi-gym. There are also free weights which is great for us and plenty of yoga mats.

5. The Breakfast. We've seen a few comments about the breakfasts being poor but we don't understand this as we've had a great breakfast every day. Here's some of the stuff on offer...

Egg station - Fried, poached, scrambled, omelette... you name it, it's yours!
Waffle & Pancake station - With fresh strawberries and syrup
Warm, freshly baked pastries - Croissants, Pan au Chocolat, Danish Pastries (This was a favourite)
Soup station - Build your own soup - Chicken noodle, Meatball, Beef Noodle
Cereal bar with fresh fruit
Meats & Cheeses
Bread/ Toast station
Fresh Juice bar 0 you can also order cafe latte, cappuccino etc
And then there was the buffet... Sausages, bacon, hash browns, baked beans, potato wedges, fried noodles, fried rice, beef rending... etc etc

When other reviewers are saying there's not enough choice, I have to wonder what kind of breakfast they're usually used to if all that is not enough!

It's served from 7am - 11am (but they also have an all day breakfast policy, so if you miss it you can call them up and they'll deliver it to your room right up to 11pm at night) and you can sit inside or out on a small terrace.

6. Service. The people of Bali are really friendly and helpful and the staff here are the same. They always stop to chat and have been teaching us some local words and phrases.

So, what could they do better? Well as a few people have pointed out, the air con is quite noisy but there's an iPod dock in the room so we've just put on some soft music and the noise hasn't bothered us.

We've also noticed a sewage smell in the room but it's only in the evenings and to be honest, we bought a packet of nag champ incense and just burn one every night and it's been absolutely fine.

The hotel offers airport pickup which we used and it was great, but it also cost $25 and you can actually pick up a taxi at the airport for half that.

There are a couple of excellent restaurants just across the road from the hotel:

Cafe Bali - great food, quite cheap, lovely atmosphere. Wine is about £20 a bottle but that seems the norm for everywhere. The service is very 'relaxed' so don't go if you're in a hurry!

Chanti - Excellent restaurant, quite pricey but the delicious food is worth it. The service is great and there's a romantic atmosphere.

All in all we are really enjoying this hotel and would definitely come again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor at the back of the hotel and it was mostly very quiet, except when there...

Pros:
-Get to keep your room for a full 24 hours - we checked in at 5pm meaning we didn't have to check out until the same time the next day, perfect as we could shower and change before getting our flight.
-Breakfast - you can have it anytime and anywhere. Good selection.
-Rooftop pool - lovely pool and relaxing atmosphere.
-Location on the main street in Seminyak
-Huge, clean, comfortable room

Cons:
-Toilet and shower have non-locking, partially see-through swingdoors, which is a bit strange if staying with friends.
-Bit of a walk to the beach.
-Check-in process was quite slow and staff were not amazing.

Overall, great value for money and lovely hotel.

We paid A$135 per night with bfst
We chose this hotel for it's 24 hour check out policy because we had a late night flight home - fantastic idea :)
This hotel exceeded expectations !
Pros
Very hip vibe
Huge room with wonderful comfy bed and lovely distant view out over the sea (we had a room on the top floor at the back of the hotel)
Big windows and a small balcony
Quiet (surprisingly)
Position - right in the middle of all the best restaurants and shopping in Eat Street !
Pool area was fabulous - lots of sun and awesome views.
Freindly, helpful staff

Cons
Breakfast fairly ordinary
Hotel seems to be built on the cheap - cracked pot plants around pool, huge cracks on bathroom floor, 2" gaps between sliding doors and ceiling.(Stay soon before it falls down lol :)
Shower needed a good scrub
Hallways a bit echoey - but our sleep was not disturbed

A fantastic hotel in an unbeatable position - highly recommended

Minuses:
- 10-15 mins to the beach
- hotel is industrial minimalist so finishing is a bit rough, i wud imagine bathrooms are a bit tedious to scrub
- water pressure is so so

But the pluses are plenty:
- smack bang in the middle of jalan kayu aya/laksmana eat and shopping street, so many quality restaurants all ard or a short walk from the hotel
- HUGE comfortable room (much larger than hotels of a higher category), ipod dock, well-stocked coffee/tea maker, large double vanity area and shower and toilet stalls
- cold a/c and very comfy king size bed
- nice rooftop pool area with view of the sea and a quite well-equipped 24 hr gym (cardio/treadmillls, weight machines, free weights)
- good bfast selection w i think outstanding properly made croissants. They serve local Sosro Heritage black tea which shows they care abt quality.
- very reasonably priced vs other options in this most prime seminyak area.

For the price and what's on offer i definitely will stay here again.

Brest place, reserve on line at the hotel website, free transport from the airport back and forth, complementary welcome beer and discount coupon for more. Breakfast included for around 100 usd. Plenty of restaurant in the area as well as bars. No too far from the beach, about 10 min walking, great staff always friendly and spoke English.
Will come back again.

The U Paasha hotel is located in Raya Oberoi, which is a street packed with restaurants and shops. So if you're looking for a central location this is it. Rooms are spacious and have large bathrooms. My room looked clean and neat. Breakfast was ok. I mainly chose the hotel for their check in time is check out time principle as I had a late flight so that it was no problem to leave the hotel at 8pm. The hotel has a nice roof top terrace, but there are too little beds: around 20 which of course is too little for a hotel that I believe has around 65 rooms. Wifi worked good. I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. I joined the hotel's Christmas bbq buffet as I was given a voucher to do so for free. Quality of the food was ok, same applied to the sandwich I ordered for lunch.

I just had a 7 night stay in this Hotel. No 1 is location, it's right in the middle of some great restaraunts and shopping places. The Decor is very nice, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The only negative is they are still learning how to cater for the clients needs, like the we couldn't get a drink by the pool before 12pm on one day and they ran out of pool towels another day, just small things but annoying. They also didn't pick us up from the airport at arrival which was frustrating!
