“They don't make hotels like this anymore....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Had a lovely stay at the hotel. Yes, it's older, yes the rooms need a bit of modernization, but overall the size of the property and the location accompanied by the walk out to beach front is amazing.

I have no complaints that warrant mentioning here. I would definitely come back to this hotel.

Value for money? Yes IF you utilize the facilities. A bit pricey if you just want a bed to sleep on.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good Wifi reception. The rooms near the entrance were pretty good.

Other hotels proclaim they are beachside, but have roads or fences in front, however this older traditional hotel is absolute beachfront with the accompanying breezes. If you stay at any other more modern absolute beachfront hotel in Seminyak, you will pay double or triple more. The staff are always so friendly and helpful and the gardens gorgeous. The resort's food and restaurants are excellent and overall a lovely comfortable place to relax and enjoy.

This hotel has immaculate gardens and I had to stop myself from photographing waterlillies everyday. The staff at this hotel were excellent and it was easy to get a car and go shopping each day. I enjoyed the fresh fruit juices here as they did not water them down or add sugar syrup. Coconut oil was a delightful freebie by the garden pool. I would definitely enjoy staying here again.

We recently stayed 7 nights at this Hotel and were very happy with our choice. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The grounds and gardens were really lovely and impeccably maintained. We never had trouble finding sun-beds around the pool, and happy hour was well utilised daily. The location is good, and we walked most places we wanted to go. Further places we went, like specific restaurants we wanted to dine at were no more than a few dollars by taxi. Our room was clean and roomy enough with a small balcony overlooking the garden, but wasn't luxurious. Then again, to be fair, for the price you pay to stay here you wouldn't be expecting too many luxuries. Our only issue was that the air-conditioning in our room wasn't really adequate, and we had to request a pedestal fan ( which, by the way, was delivered almost immediately and really helped).. To sum up, this is a very good well-priced hotel in a good location, and we look forward to returning here next year.

Spent 8 nights here and loved it. It was what I wanted in terms of location (away from Kuta but still on the beach), room (very big and clean, overlooking the garden), facilities (very big pool, overlooking the beach, and beautiful gardens), and shops (plenty close by, for everything, including for eating). The staff was very, very friendly. And having several beachside restaurants very close by was a bonus - great sitting in bean bags with a good meal and Bintang, listening to music and watching the waves at night.
The only negative (other than the general mad Bali traffic situation) was the pool staff - very poor in terms of attending to people wanting drinks/food, and then way too long coming back with them!
Overall though, I highly recommend this hotel. It's beautiful and well located, and the staff are generally attentive.
