“Love, Love, Love this hotel....we will be back again & again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2010

We were married at Bali Mandira in 2005 and returned in 2007 & are returning in 2010. We love this hotel. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. If you are unhappy with anything they will go out of their way to fix it and make sure that you are happy.
We had our wedding ceremony on the grassed area overlooking the beach and our reception at the restaurant overlooking the beach...we could not have asked for better service, presentation or value for money.
When we returned 2 years later the staff remembered us and constantly made us feel at home.
Mind you...we do not stay in the deluxe rooms/cottages...we prefer the tower block at the back and in particular the premiere rooms...you pay a little extra but it is worth it for the new furnishings, new aircon, fantastic view from the balcony and no outside shower...i don't like insects! The grounds of the Hotel are superb...so beautiful, quiet and Balinese. The upper level pool is our favourite...no kids allowed and a cocktail on the upper deck at sunset is fantastic. The room service is prompt and reasonably priced. The rooms were being refurbished last time we were there so check out where your room is on the website and contact the hotel to ensure you are not near any work being done.
It is close to everything without seeming like it...once you enter the grounds the bartering street vendors seem a mile away. We love Bali Mandira and cannot wait to return in a couple of months.

We stayed at Bali mandira for several nights in delux rooms. The rooms are comfortable and clean. There is a water cooker in the room, that we found comfortable.
The outside shower is nice, but we have seen better in Bali. In general this hotel has nothing of Bali atmosphere that we value.
It's very touristic that kills tour mood. There was nothing that reminded you that you were in bali.
The only great thing was the beach! Which is amazing, but when you walk in to the beach you are being attacked by the sellers of body boards, drinks, massage etc.

If you planning on visiting Bali and get to know the culture,I would not recomend this place. A resort like this could be standing any where, Greece, Spain, Aruba, wherever..

Dear guest,

Thank you for the feedback during your stay with us. Not to impose but outmost sincerely it is hard not to see Bali represented in our resort as we go a long way to preserve, mantain and promote the local culture. We have 3 Hindu temples and a few shrines within our property; our employees are all local and wear a blend of traditional uniforms with dastars, kebaya, sarong and so on; aproximatelly half our dining menu is authenticaly Indonesian, mostly Balinese; every week we have Barong, Legong and Ramayana performances, we employ daily Balinese dancers, carvers, painters and offering makers. Our spa revolves around local products and techniques. We have a lush garden all troughout the property exceeding two hundred types of regional plants, trees, shrubs and flowers. The interior design and architecture of our rooms reflect the Balinese style, particularly the cottages. And the list could go on. We hope you do consider to return and experience that again trough us.

This was our 2nd time to Bali Mandira after staying elsewhere in Bali over the years. It is a centrally located motel. Rooms are clean and staff very friendly. The breakfast was good value BUT a few more cereal choices would be good. The pools are good especially the adults pool -No kids allowed- good to have a swim and a relax by the pool.
The taxes on alcohol in Bali have made it expensive to have drinks at the resort and by the pool. We would go elsewhere to have a night out/drink.
Overall the best resort that we have stayed at in Bali. We will return in 2011.

Stayed here in July. We had 2 rooms both with outside showers - the rooms had been refurbished and were amazing. Very clean and very spacious. We loved the resort - very friendly staff and very helpful.

The resort is very well maintained - the grounds are lovely. We loved the location right on the beach but also not far to go if you wanted to get a meal outside of the resort or go shopping.

We also stayed at the Legian Beach Hotel next door and have to say that the Mandira has a lower rating but is a much better resort in every way. The main pool at the Mandira could do with a little upgrade, however, the infinity pool up the top is wonderful. The grassed area around the pool with all of the loungers was really lovely.

We enjoyed many meals around the pool during the day and found the prices to be very good.

The children loved the resort and are already asking when we can go back.

i did alot of research before booking at the mandira. i liked the idea of the outdoor shower and the lounge facilities.
first time to bali. the pick up fm hotel was smooth. we were taken to the lounge area for check in which was the nicest part of the resort (aside fm the upper pool) this was because it looked like the newest part of the hotel.
our deluxeroom was disapointing as it was old and needed a refurbishment (the bathroom was also old and musty - the outdoor shower was nice though)
- we went to the parasol restaurant to have a bite, the service was good and the food was excellent, plus you have a nice view of the beach
good points as mentioned, the lounge area is plush and you get free cocktails fm 5.30-7 pm (but go early as it gets crowded) you can also have non-alcoholic beverages fm 11-11 pm. the lounge food was quite poor IMO (having stayed in many hotels with amazing buffet teas, snacks) here you get cookies, one choice of cake (3.30 - 5 pm) and one choice of sandwich and spring rolls fm 5.30 - 7pm (which always ran out, no refills)
but the staff are nice there. you also get to use the 4 computers they have in the adjacent library room.
the inifinity pool was amazing. the location was also good, next to the beach and near kuta
ok to the complaints
1) there was refurbishment in the villa next to ours (with loud drilling) we asked to move but there was nothing available except the pool villas, and we didn't want to pay the extra USD 150 per night.
2) big ants. yes big ants which crawled all over my husband - ok only 1-2, and if they were normal ants i would have no problem to kill them. but these were huge, and mainly in the bathroom. it spoiled our stay as i began to get paranoid about eating and drinking in our room. i asked housekeeping for bug spray and i kept spraying - after 2 days they did not return...but it was still an unpleasant experience, not one you expect in a 5 star resort

having stayed in a few resorts (thailand, malaysia and around asia) i felt the mandira was more a 3 star resort with a nice lounge (if you are paying for that amenity)
i think next time, i will fork out a bit more and stay somewhere that is 5 star

on a side note, we were conned into going to the royal resorts time share presentation - if you are approached by someone who claims you have won a great prize, you haven't - walk away! (http://royal-resorts-bali-scam.com/)

We have just returned from yet another trip to Bali and this was our 3rd stay at The wonderful Bali Mandira Hotel.. We LOVE this hotel and will never stay at another hotel in Bali. The staff are wonderful and friendly, rooms are cleaned everyday. It was my husbands birthday while we were there and staff had left a beautiful arrangement of flowers in our room while we were at breakfast, it was a lovely gesture. I love the location it's on the beach front, quiet and yet you can just walk up the road to all the great shopping and wonderful resturants nearby.
Everytime we come it feels like we have come back to our second home.. Can't wait to go back next year......
