“Nice rooms, not so great location and bad breaky”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

I love the concept of the hotel and the rooms and facilities are all really great; couldn't fault it.
The location of the hotel is not great. It's a bit of a walk to the beach and main strip of bars and restuarants in Leghian. But a taxi ride is easy enough and cheap. We only stayed here for 2 nights so it didn't bother us but if I was staying there for long, I definately wanna be somewhere a little more convenient.

The breakfast we had at the hotel is by far the worse ever. If your not down for breakfast first thing in the morning that prepare not to get any food or juice. The bacon was weird and everything was cold and tasteless.

The other thing I didn't like was conceirge's knowledge of the closest pharmacy or chemist. There was a few staff at reception and none of them directed to the ones in Leghian. They told me to go to Seminyak instead!! Really annoyed when i came across several in Leghian after asking them.

Also, their spa was under renovation so they came to our hotel room instead. It should have been discounted prices but it wasn't.

I can't I would return because of location and bad breakfast. The rooms and decor are fantastic, pity about the rest.

The hotel is fantastic, a short to beach and shops, the pool and restaurant areas are lovely and the rooms are spacious with everything you could possibly want like I pod dock, universal plug, slippers, mosquito plugs, tv etc. Would definately recommend and despite other reviews on here about breakfast I thought it was great, just because the food may be different from what your used to doesn't make it bad. Staff really friendly and an excellent price. Thanks

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights in Room 502 in Bliss Wayan. Yes the hotel was new, well designed, and 15 min on foot to the new Beachwalk shopping centre.

HOWEVER, we were woken up at 2am and 4.30am every night by mosquitoes: we killed over 40 of them throughout our stay. The electric mosquitoes repellant provided in room was useless. No idea where these little buggers came from as we kept the balcony door closed. Every morning we discovered dead mosquitoes under the duvet!!

Definitely NOT a relaxing stay. Not sure whether we were just unlucky as other reviewers don't seem to have the same problem. But yes, Room 502, perhaps it's now a mosquitoes-free zone after my boyfriend's efforts.

Such a shame as the hotel has great potential: spacious room, comes with balcony (not mentioned in booking), comfortable beds, good quality slippers and toiletries provided. Breakfast was alright, with cold and hot options, and an egg station. 'Juice' tasted chemicals though.

Awesome location more Kuta than Legian but literally a stones throw away from the main street action, although when cabbing you need to take the map from the reception office because the drivers dont know where it is.
Take II japanese restaurant next door faultless.
Hotel itself very beautifully decked out and super clean and brand spanking new. It has the most comfortable bed ever in the history of beds!
Food is way to asian for my liking breakfast on holidays just isnt the same without proper bacon and eggs and baked beans, but if your a fan of noodles, asian dumplings, hot or tepid fruit and crunchy cheese then your in luck!
Reception staff were super friendly and what you would expect at a 5 star property.
The killer for me is the pool.. bad bad design, the building is way to tall and overshadows the pool awefully so unfortunately it gets no light past 12 noon and is cold - super cold making it useless. There is very limited space to sit around the pool itself and there is only 2 chairs not that its a problem though because its like a ghost town of a hotel! where are the guests.. ohh probably at a hotel you can swim in a sunny pool.
If your looking for action, where you can mingle with the other guests and talk shopping then this is NOT the hotel for you. It would suit older couples or people who dont want to lay by the pool or swim or eat at the hotel restaurant. (ordered room service = bad)

ps// forgot to add there is a rooster next door that needs to be terminated. it woke me up daily at 6am!! not happy jan

The room was immaculate, colourful and created for every need. Exceptionally friendly staff, always greeted for breakfast and in reception. Funky cool layout to reception and eating area. We were disappointed with location as the hotel was closer to Kuta than the more 'up-market' Legian.

Our stay at Bliss was nothing short of perfect. We're frequent travellers to Bali and this was by Fay the best service we've ever received. (anywhere in the world).
The hotel itself is very clean and everything works. The poolside rooms are amazing.

Special thanks to the kitchen/bar/restaurant staff who made the trip perfect. These people are more than staff, they're a team who strive to make the hotel a success and treat you like a movie star. Nothing is too difficult for them. Breakfast was the best I've had in Bali also.

Highly recommended!
