“Another Great Stay”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Just returned from another great stay. Spent 12 days here in mid August. The staff were fantastic, the location is very central to great resturants and shopping. You have beach one end and resturants etc at front entrance. It is only a small resort which i like as the staff get to know you by name and service is very personal. Breakfast is great with a choice of a menu and delivered quickly and with a big smile from staff, Ketut is a wonderful. Rooms are more than comfortable and cleaned daily. All rooms have an area to sit outside with beautiful gardens which are always kept clean and tidy. I would recommend this hotel and we will certainly return there again and will be telling family and friends what a great stay we had there. There is a great coffee shop owned by Aussies that make great coffee, it is called mugshots. If you go out street end of resort and turn left and follow the road around a short distance it is on the left. Also great for lunch. Bali Bagus resturant serves great food and service is fantastic. A drive to Lovina to the hot springs is worth it. It is a 3 hour drive but the scenery along the way is amazing as you see the real Bali away from the tourist areas. Echo Beach on a Sunday night is great fun. You can choose from the menu or order from the bbq which is well worth it, I recommend you get there early as you cant book and it gets very busy. A visit to Tanar Lot Temple is also a great place to see. Allow a few hours there. Thanks Puri Raja for another great holiday.

We've stayed here 3 times. It's still the best hotel which is value for money on the beach front.
Hotel has everything ; beautiful gardens, great pool, WiFi, food is great and service is exceptional, always a smile and a hello from all the staff.
Restaurants and shopping are all in walking distance.
Definitely one to consider.

we have stayed at the puri raja many times in the past, but this time we noticed the quality has gone down. in need of room maintenance urgently. door handles falling off, rusted bath, sheet grey. puri raja was one of our favourites in bali but not sure if we would rush back. staff always friendly and food in restaurant excellent. with a little maintenance it would be a great place to stay, the room we had this time was very small also, thanks to all the staff who did make it a nice stay,

We have stayed at the Puri Raja on numerous occasions, usually at the end of travelling around and staying at more remote parts of the island without the luxuries of hot water and air-conditioning. It offers close proximity to the ocean, clean and comfortable rooms, lovely pools, excellent breakfasts, beautiful gardens and quick access to a multitude of markets and shops. As in any hotel issues can arise and the staff are very accommodating once they are alerted to any problems. One couple in our party were given a room that literally smelt of vomit and they were promptly moved to another nearby room. The cleaning and administrative staff spent the next three days intensively aerating, fanning, cleaning, overhauling and checking the targeted room. There are probably other hotels that offer the same amenities at an equal or lower price but the Puri Raja suits our needs perfectly. I find their booking procedures are very efficient and my correspondence with Arthawa (the manager) was very professional and friendly. I had to change room names and configurations a few times and he always met these requests very promptly and without any fuss. There has been comment on Tripadvisor that the Puri Raja has become a mecca for Australians and we did find that this was predominantly the case on our recent trip. But this wasn't a negative for us (being Australian ourselves!) and everyone we interacted with were very friendly, happy and well behaved around pool and bar areas. Again, problems do arise when crowds of loud drunken holiday makers party into the night or aggressively take over pool areas but this sadly can happen in any hotel and the offenders can be any nationality. We did not experience any of this behaviour at the Puri Raja and I hope the hotel staff would not tolerate this activity. The ground staff are happy and friendly and the reception staff (although a little more reserved) respond well to a smile and a morning or afternoon chat. I would continue to recommend the Puri Raja to any traveller in Bali who is looking for a quiet, well priced and comfortable oasis from the busy and demanding streets of Legian and Kuta.

Hotel is in a good location with plenty of food and shopping options nearby. The rooms are good although the shower head shoots water out like a hose.

The staff around the pool and restauant are very helpful however we had to make 3 trips to the front desk to get our room key as the room took longer then expected to prepare.

Good hotel. But overpriced compared to others around.
Towels were meant to be white but were very old and thin and grey looking.
Two great pool areas. Good breakfast. Although OJ tasted like sugar syrup.
Lovely gardens with nice Balinese feel.

I stayed in both room types for about a week all up. It's a lovely small hotel on the beach so location is good! The rooms are quite large & very well kept. The only downside about the rooms was that both room types didn't offer a real double bed - we got singles pushed together to look like a double which we really disliked (not sure if that's all rooms?). I think at this price they should offer free wifi and DVD player, we had to pay $5 for one day to watch one DVD. Almost all other hotels & restaurants offered free wifi including next door. The restaurant is average too, but again the ones next door were great. Both pools at this place were beautiful! Would not stay as long next time - much prefer uluwatu & nusa lembongan which are amazing!
