The hotel is about a half hour drive from the airport. Costs about Rp90,000 to get there using the airport taxi. However, going to the airport from the hotel was about Rp68,000 on a metered taxi. The walk to Seminyak Square is about 15min.
When walking along the roads in the night, it is best to hold your bags tight & away from the traffic. While walking on Friday night, I heard a scream coming from behind & a woman was exclaiming something about her bag being snatched. I turned & saw a woman in the shadows picking up some belongings on the road. A motorcycle was speeding away. So be careful.
The hotel about 5 stories high with a small pool that is right where the dining area is. The breakfast buffet is not extensive but definitely sufficient. The food was good. Although breakfast stops at 11am. You are allowed to linger on & help yourself to whatever is left at the buffet line, which I thought was nice for guests who only got to the dining area at 11am like me.
The rooms were spacious. Each guest is given 2 plushy pillows & a small cushion unlike some hotels which give you skinny ones which does nothing to support your head.
I got room 5002 which is on the ground floor & the balcony opens up to a wall. That didn’t matter. I arrived on Friday night to realise that there was a club/bar 2 doors down. It seemed really popular on a Friday. The traffic caused a little congestion on the street right in front. The music was loud & I could hear it clearly in my room. However, the music died down about 1+am. The hotel staff assured us that the party was only for that night. Sure enough, the club was less noisy on Saturday night.
I tried the spa. Nothing out of the world but it was very well priced. For a 2 hour massage, I paid about S$91 for 2 persons. Although the menu in the room said that it was Rp600,000 + 21% (taxes & service charges) for 2.5 hours. I recommend that the services be fine-tuned to make the experience better for clients.
On the whole, a great find for me. Got a good deal for the hotel & paid about S$100/night. This hotel is apparently a year old but it looked newer than that. I recommended about 3 other groups of friends to stay there & they all agreed that this was a good choice.
