We stayed at the Pelangi from 3 - 10 March as a 50th wedding anniversary to ourselves. Check in/check out was quick and easy. There was a beautiful bowl of flowers in our room with a congratulatory note. Thank you Pelangi for that - it was a lovely thought. Our room 206 was good - very clean and large enough. Bathroom very clean too. Only complaint I had is that there isn't any cupboard or drawers in the bathroom and very little bench space so no place to leave toiletries. Complementary toiletries were basic. Also not keen on overhead showers because the baths are quite deep but that is in most places. Also only extremely shallow drawers in room. There was a cupboard with hanging space and 3 shelves, Bedside cabinet on one side of the bed only. The bed was large but was 2 smaller beds pushed together. Mini bar was reasonably priced. Airconditioning was excellent. We were upstairs and had a balcony but this was very small and didn't have any furniture out there. Our room faced other rooms so we didn't have our curtains open whilst in the room at all. The staff were very friendly and cleaned our room and changed linen daily. Towels were not too bad but no face washers. To get to the restaurant was ok except when it rained. There was no overhead protection and no umbrellas for guests use. Breakfast was quite good although on some days the fruit wasn't very ripe. You can have eggs done however you like them at the egg station which was just outside the open restaurant. On rainy days it was closed but the restaurant kitchen cooked the eggs. We ate in the restaurant for dinner for the first 3 nights but for me the food was very bland and tough, however my husband liked his meals. There is a bar at the front of the hotel but it was very hot in there so it was empty most of the time. Cocktail hour was 4 - 5 every day with a 30% reduction. The pool area was lovely with plenty of beds around the pool but not much shade. You could ask for an umbrella though. There were no upright chairs or small tables in the pool area. The outlook from the pool and restaurant was great looking out over the ocean. We didn't see any sunsets because it was overcast every day. There were steps going down to the beach giving easy access. We didn't eat at any of the beach beanbag restaurants because they didn't appeal to us at all. We didn't like the way motor bikes and scooters had access to the path along the beach making it feel quite dangerous. The reception staff were helpful - we had a safety deposit box at reception because there wasn't one in our room but it was always accessible. It is cheaper to walk out in the street for taxi's. The first day we got the hotel to book a taxi for us to Kuta. It cost approx equivalent of AU$10. Next time we went outside the hotel and it cost approx equivalent of AU$2.50. Bluebird taxis are the cheapest.
The room is definately a 3 star but the pool area a little higher with staff friendliness higher still. Overall we enjoyed our stay but would be reluctant to book again.
