Spartacvs Bali Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 18, 2012

As a repeat guest at Spartacvs Bali I arrived (as always) as a welcome addition to the Spartacvs family .... and greeted warmly by the new proprietors.

The staff are exceptional ! Any hotel that has staff who remember your name, your breakfast preferences, your favourite drink - visit after visit - and unobtrusively ask how they can make your experience of Bali more inviting is a rare quality.

I've stayed in a variety of their room selections : all well proportioned, A/C, clean and comfortable, with king size beds. I'd recommend deluxe rooms with private outdoor bathrooms ! Housekeeping staff are discrete and efficient.

Breakfast, lunch and evening meals are well proportioned and cater for basic western and local fare. Drinks are essentially equivalent to Australian pub prices (cheap beer, cheap spirits) ... and they'll serve to your room or by the pool without ridiculous room service tariffs.

This place is now my Bali home-away-from-home .... and I make an effort to divert my international business trips via Bali to enjoy some time at Spartacvs. Always a good crew of guests from Europe and Australia ... and ALWAYS someone happy to join you for a meal or cocktails at local haunts!

I'll be back !!

Room Tip: Recommend the deluxe rooms .... my preference is away from the pool ... private outdoor bathrooms ar...

We spent a week at Spartacvs recently, just as new ownership was moving in. Let's hope they have a little more interest and experience in quality than the former owner had. Here are my tips for improvement:

1. Renovate the pool - tiles and coping. URGENT
2. Replace linens. Old and worn.
3. Scrub the bathroom tiles , they are appalling.
4. Make sure a sober manager is always on duty.
5. Don't offer meals if ingredients are missing ( wait staff should be informed before taking an order)
6. Get better coffee
7. Buy fresh milk for breakfast and keep it and other breakfast goods chilled ( fruit, butter)
8. Upgrade the wi-fi. URGENT
9. Redesign the space, it' s poorly utilised at the moment, especially poolside
10. Train the staff. Most are eager but lack leadership.

Spartacvs is a lovely resort and the local staff are very friendly and willing to help. It s a real pity that they have had no support to improve their hospitality skills. Also there is no direct competition in the gay market, so there has been little incentive to improve quality. I wish the new owners all the best.

Room Tip: SD 5 & 6 are noisy. Quieter rooms are upstairs

I have stayed in Spartacvs several times since they opened more than 5 years ago. Always the same room by the pool. I can think of no better place to spend my holiday and the friendliness of the staff is outstanding.

I have booked again - fornext February!

Room Tip: Just book early I guess, this not a big hotel. Ask for a room next to the pool.

This is a great little hotel for your Bali visit. I had a very clean room, comfortable bed and delightful outside shower. They staff are very friendly and helpful - typical for Bali. It is also located close to the beach & Seminyak shops and restaurants. I had a number of lazy afternoons around the pool reading my book, followed by dinner in the small restaurant. While the choice was a little limited, the food was great and Bintangs cold. The other guests during my visit weren't as 'international' as I had envisaged, but that's the luck of the draw! I have no hesitation in recommending this place.

I stayed for 5 days mid August, Rooms was clean and tidy, nice staff, they always smile and are very helpful. outside shower was awesome!
Nice pool area to hang out in.
I'm in my early 30's and I was by far the youngest fella there "other then the staff" its probably more for the older blokes, but still a good place to stay

Breakfast was average.

This is a men-only hotel where, as the management put it, clothing is only optional. Said that, the hotel is a great secluded place where the rooms are all around the swimming pool. The staff is kind, helpful and always smiling. Food is good and for breakfast three options are offered. You can even spend your day at the hotel and you won't feel it's wasted time.

Room Tip: The best rooms are those on the ground floor

This is a nice little hotel in a a place where there really aren't a lot of gay venues. Bali as a whole is not a very gay place. The charm of this place is the staff and the friendly people that you meet from around the world who congregate around the pool.. The beach is a short 5-7 minute walk away. I expected a softer sand on the beach like Phuket but surprised to find a courser type of sand and strong ocean currents.
Overall I would stay here again because you never know who you will meet. Gay hotels deserve the support of the gay community.

Room Tip: Get a poolside room.
