“Blissful carefree stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

We have just left this resort today. Having been to Bali on several occasions and numerous other countries over the years, we can confidently say that our stay at Plataran is been one of the most enjoyable.
The warm hearted hospitality and experience of each member of the 56 strong Plataran team led by GM Ranae was evident from the moment we arrived till we left. This is quite an achievement.
We got to know some team members by name, Weda, Made, Nellie, Dewi, Thomas, Subali, Wayan, Restu, Komang, Indra, Sandy, Gede who worked as a seamless team, and each made us feel very much at home.
Our villa for the week was a slice of paradise, it was well maintained and clean. We enjoyed many quiet hours reading and swimming in a beautiful lush garden setting. 2 thumbs up to housekeeping. Help was always available when we needed it.
We will miss the delicious meals prepared by chef Made's kitchen and led by manager Weda. You should try the creme brûlée trio, babi guling and nasi goreng. Do also attend the cooking lesson and gain some confidence and appreciation of Balinese cuisine. We now have a number of recipes under our belt - special thanks to chef Wayan.
Final thanks to the front desk - Nellie, Dewi and team for handling our numerous requests for transport and organising our activities to lembongan and tanah lot.
This is a special place of tranquility that we wholeheartedly recommend.

We are a family of four, and spent our Christmas break at the Plataran Resort and Spa. Coming from busy Singapore, we wanted something that is not your typical five star branded resort, but rather something a bit more local, private and laid back. Spot on! The staff is wonderful, the food delicious (we had dinner 6 out of 7 nights at the resort) and the 2 bedroom duplex villa with private pool was very comfortable and clean. What impressed us the most was the individual approach to service and our requirements. Nothing seems too much trouble. The resort is despite having only 19 villas quiet large, with beautiful balinese landscaping. We loved the Spa, great value for money averaging 35-40 US$ for a treatment. Should we come back to Bali, we will stay here again, maybe in combination with a night or two at the new sister resort Plataran Ubud, as a day trip is quiet a stretch with traffic.

This hotel lived up to its advertising with superb individual bungalows some with their own small swimming pool. The staff could not have been more helpful and the service was excellent and attentive. There is a concierge available who arranged taxis and trips for us at very reasonable cost and advice on where we might go was most helpful. The restaurant was good and breakfasts excellent. Room service was at no extra cost for anything off the menu and worth using.
The hotel is about 20 minutes taxi drive from the sea and the town nearby the hotel is not worth visiting. Our main disappointment was not in the hotel but in Bali itself which is has been developed into an enormous shopping centre with hotels and clubs hogging the seafront. Swimming in the sea is also limited due to rip tides. Bali is nothing like "South Pacific" but the local people are charming.

Room Tip: Choose a pool side villa - they are all individual villas and isolated from the other guests for max...

Dear Ray G,
Thank you for your kind words – I am sorry to hear that Bali itself did not live up to your expectations, but we are glad that we were able to offer you a little refuge from the hustle and bustle outside. Additionally, the kitchen team is very grateful for your kind words on the menu and they continue to improve on this each day.

From the moment I met Mr. Agung, the driver that pleasantly smiles despite my 2 hrs delay at the immigration counter, right till he dropped me back at the airport, 5 days later, I could not find a single issue with this place. Totally spotless.

I initially planned to spend my birthday with my loved one but the relationship did not work out, forcing me to enjoy all the luxury experience alone. But trust me, Plataran Bali made my sorrow and pain drifted so far away, I thank God I'm still single. LOL

Very beautiful room, cleaned twice a day, and awesome room service, Plataran Bali offers nothing less than 5* treatments. I requested for 2 breakfast meals served by the pool every morning, enjoyed 2 hours of massage and body scrub, swimmed at the main pool regularly, worked out at the gym, enjoyed the hot tub, DVD rental, and seriously I wish I could stay longer.

Thanks to Plataran Bali for such an amazing experience.

Room Tip: All the villas are nice and since they have 2 entrances, location is not an issue.

One of the best trips I did in my life. A one month in Bali. The villas are fantastic, nice interior, very clean, love the bed and the linens, huge closet, nice open bathrooms/toilet, a private terrace with ref, convenient for long stay tourists, a lush garden, very quiet, relaxing riverside, friendly staff, helpful maids, heavy breakfast, safe and simply made my vacation PERFECT. I will definitely recommend this to friends.

I stayed at Plataran Bali for 2 nights in September 2013 while traveling a Bali tour for my honeymoon.
We arrived by night and were greeted by very friendly staff who spoke perfect english and taught me a few Indonesian words (as I asked them how to say a few polite words).
We were showed to a very nice and romantic pool villa (n°9) which had a private entrance and garden.
The room was spacious and nicely furnished with TV, free Wifi, minibar and complimentary mineral water along with complimentary tea & coffee set which we enjoyed every morning on the terrace overlooking our private swimming pool and surrounding "jungle".

It may be a little unsettling for europeans but we found it quite common in Bali : the toilet and bath are located on an outdoor terrace, open on a small, private garden. It was quite an adventure to go to the toilet on the first day but the weather being nice and warm, being outdoor actually felt like being indoors. Also it is actually quite exotic and fun to take a shower with the sensation of being right in the jungle.

The food was nice with a choice of two "à la carte" menus, one classic indonesian and another one which I didn't try. The F&B rates were a very good deal (I could easily compare with the other hotels where we stayed after the Plataran).
Breakfast was either american or continental with generous serving size, coffee or tea, juices etc.
The staff at the restaurant was also very nice and friendly although, when we ordered water, we usually had to ask twice to get it.

We tried the spa which was small and cozy with a nice service and good rates (more or less 600 000 per 60' massage which is a bargain compared to other hotels of same category in Bali).
We loved the huge gardens which one can go wander in and the two swimming pools, one by the restaurant and the other one in between the front office and the spa.
The fitness room is well equipped and nice to spend time in.

The hotel is located in a calm neighborhood, although if you wish to go to Double 6 (66 beach) or Seminyak, I recommand you keep a hotel card because the hotel is not well known and the cab we took didn't know the exact location, we had to help him find it.
It costs about 50 000 rupiahs by cab to get to Double 6 beach to watch the sunset and enjoy one of the many restaurants in this area.
On the way to downtown, the hotel usually calls a cab company called "Blue Bird". On the way back, should you not find a Blue Bird taxi, don't forget to ask the driver about "argo" = taximeter.

There are NO animations in this hotel, therefore I would recommand it to couples without children or people looking for a relaxing hotel featuring good service at reasonable price.

Room Tip: we stayed in villa n°9 and were entirely satisfied.

Dear Guest,

I am so happy to hear that your honeymoon with us went so perfectly - these special occasions are very important to us as they create lifelong memories for the both of you. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the outdoor bathrooms, we think this is a special feature and as you said - a very authentic feature of Balinese properties. We hope that on your anniversary (or sooner!) we will get to host you again so you can enjoy all the services you enthusiastically highlighted once more. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
