If you purchase a ticket for a taxi from the airport they will slug you 100,000 rupiah when you tell them you are going to the Holiday Inn which is just around the corner! Don't mind splashing my money around in Bali but hate greed!

MY husband and I have just returned from a wondeful holiday in bali ,thanks to the Holiday Inn Baruna Bali. Having stayed here seven years ago ,This hotel has undergone an amazing transformation, and offers a mix of Balinese and comtempory styling. From the moment you enter this hotel the wonderful service begins. You are greeted by the most friendly enthusiastic staff I have ever met. The staff here are warm ,friendly and polite ,NOTHING is too much trouble. The staff found out it was our wedding aniversary and had an aniversary cake made and delivered to our room, it was a wonderful surprise.Management staff are also very approachable and only too willing to advise and help guests.
The hotel is situated south of Kuta ,far enough from the maddening crowd but close enough to walk to kuta and surrounding areas. Food at this hotel is reasonably priced . and of an excellent quality.The breakfast buffet was also excellent, however it did get a little busy as we were there at the end of a religous holiday .To avoid the rush we then began to have breakfast at the Envy Bar which was on the beach a little more quiet and stunning. The rooms are newly renovated and are modern, neat ,tidy and clean. I have to make mention of the wonderful beds and pillows.Theres nothing worse than going on a holiday and sleeping on an uncomfortable bed, however this is NOT the case at this hotel ,i can't rave about the bed enough. A Balinese holiday is made special by the wonderful Balinese people and the new friends you make and staying in a great hotel such as the Holiday Inn baruna Bali tops it off.

Hotel is in very south of Kuta which was a great location, not too noisy and people on the street were friendly not rude with their selling techniques. The pool was a great place to relax and enjoy the water, sun, cocktails and Bingtang. Service was good, rooms were clean, a bit small, but why do you want to stay in the room! There is so much interesting activities around Bali. We did Tulamben Scuba dive (shipreck). Was fantastic! We asked staff at the hotel if they can hire us a car with a guide and they did that. For 4 of us was cheaper to do this way and we had private airconditioned car with guide and driver. They took us to Ubud village, Elephant park, Monkey Temple, Volcano, Spieces village (we tried the Kapi Luwak). Was a full day trip which was excellent.

Let me start by saying that in Bali there's nothing called bad service....The people at all levels are verrryyyyyy friendly and hospitality was definitely invented in Bali. Don't go to Customer Service training just go to Bali to see it in action everywhere.

Holiday Inn is a nice hotel, no different from any of the other Holiday inns all over the world. The Pool was small for the crowd, the breakfast buffet was crowded and my omelet came after my appetite died. I'm glad I stuck to Room Service most of the time. The room was a little small but had all the comforts.

The Beach in front of the hotel is not spectacular but the beaches in Bali are a thing of beauty.

The Check in was smooth and the check out as well but then we had pre-paid return airport transfers. The trip from the hotel to airport was something I had to get the Hall porter to notice by showing him the receipt, which is ridiculous as I just settled the bills and should have been shown to the taxi without running around for it.

Tip: Don't book the airport transfer, its 100K rupiah cheaper to get a taxi on the street. Flag down the light blue ones, they are honest.

Laundry service is cheap but in Kuta its even cheaper.

The spa is expensive.
But they were friendly and nice during out stay and extended our check out by a couple of hours without charging for it.

I would recommend staying a couple of days in Kuta (heart of the shopping district) and a few days in Ubud.

My wife and I, along with my wife's mother stayed for a week in a family "suite".

The suite consisted of two adjoining rooms with interconnecting doors, separate bathrooms etc. Both rooms were clean and well presented, with the second room setup for children with two separate single beds, an X-Box 360, and some toys. But it was equally as good for the M.I.L to use as her "room" for the duration.

We were greeted with chilled towels and a non-alcoholic fruit punch on arrival whilst the bookings were being checked and the details were taken for secondary expenses (eg drinks etc).

The pool bar, and the staff were exceptional! Their level of attentiveness and genuine interest in their guests was outstanding. This is a supreme location - hop out of the pool and wander over the little grassy knoll and you are onto the beach (which despite reports from others, we thought looked pretty clean, but still not as inviting as the pool!)

There is entertainment around the pool area which varies every night - from local Balinese dancing by a Kuta-based dancing troop through to choreographed marshall arts demonstrations, drummers, live music etc.

The food and beverage at the hotel may be considered expensive when compared to other local cafes etc. They are however cheaper than what you would expect to pay back home (Australia), and if you have a "weak" stomach, you can be pretty secure in the knowledge that none of the food here is going to give you the dreaded Bali-belly.

Breakfast is great with so many choices, and you can have your own custom-made pancakes or omelettes cooked to order.

The restaurant called Envy (almost on the beach) has a great selection of a la carte meals for dinner, and if you want something which is not on the menu, you can ask and they will certainly try to accommodate your requirements. Again the staff are exceptional with great memories for personalised service.

We had a minor issue with the room on arrival (air con needed to be reset) but it was attended to within 10 minutes of the call to reception, and from then on it was beautiful and chilly... A welcome relief every time we walked back into the room from outside.

Our friends stayed for the week as well, and the Hotel arranged it so our rooms were very close together. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay as well.

The only minor criticism is that the bathrooms are a little compact, but overall the rooms are great and well appointed,complete with flat screen TVs and DVD players.

A leisurely 15-20 minute walk down the paved path alongside the beach, and you are at the Centro Discovery Centre shopping mall. A further 10 minutes leisurely walk and you are at Kuta Square ready to barter for your goods. But at night, if you like a tranquil, quiet place to rest, then this is far enough away not to be effected by the noises of the nightclubs.

We loved this place, and will be back.

Hotel was really relaxing, great pool area, staff are very helpful, good security around hotel, rooms have a musty smell but I think that is just the humidity of Bali, our Aircon was broken but fixed quickly. We where charged twice on our credit card, and are still trying to get our money back, apart from that I would stay again. Hopefully I will get my $400 Au back :)
Food is good, but both drink and food is very expensive compared to other places.
