“What a great place”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

This is our 3rd trip back to the Padma although the first since 1995. The place is now huge but has lost none of its charm or quality. We stayed with the 2 kids in adjoining rooms in the lagoon wing on the 3rd floor. I can't speak highly enough of this resort and will not even consider staying anywhere else when I return (which I will). This is not a cheap hotel to stay at but it is worth every cent and you don't walk away thinking you've been ripped off. The grounds are magnificent and the facilities and restaurants within are first class. However it is the staff that make this place the gem that it is. From the gardeners all the way through to management, we were met with a smile and a friendly greeting which was so infectious I found myself smiling most of the time. You get the impression they really enjoy working there and why wouldn't they!

Room Tip: Include the breakfast option in your package. Definitely worth it. If you have kids that like swimm...

My friend and I (2 x 20/30-something females) stayed at the Padma in September this year. We were originally tossing up between the Royal Beach Seminyak and the Padma and have no regrets staying at the Padma. It is a stunning resort with friendly staff and an amazing breakfast buffet. I think it definitely deserves it's star rating - it's beautiful!

The resort is very large with 2 gorgeous pools with bars, beautiful landscaping and security at the entrances. We had a pool view room, which was really nice - no negatives here except given the size of the resort, was a little bit of a walk to the other beachfront pool (but that's only if you're being particularly picky/lazy!).

From memory, when researching resorts, I read that there were some older sections to the Padma and so I requested a room in the new/renovated section. Having said that, I didn't notice any old sections, and whatever section we ended up in we had a really nice room - no complaints. The whole resort looked beautiful to me!

The position was great, within easy walking distance of beachfront bars and restaurants and right next to lots of shopping. You could walk to Seminyak, but I imagine it would take a while - we didn't attempt it and chose to get taxi's at around $3 each way.

Next time I go to Bali I MIGHT try staying in Seminyak as the couple of times we wanted to go out to nice bars (Ku de ta and Potato Head), we ended up going to Seminyak - however I loved the Padma and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. I also thought Seminyak was a bit more westernized than Legian, and preferred Legian - so maybe I'd stick with Legian anyway, in which case I'd definitely stay at the Padma again.

Overall - loved it!

We had an 8 night holidy there and found it great, the 5 star rating they give themselves is a little optimistic. I would say it is a solid 4 star. The staff however where 5 star and I can't praise them enough. The rooms are well appointed but more effort is needed on cleaning, I noticed the tiles needed a good moping and you could see parts that had been missed on the last clean, but that was all, the bathroom was spotless, aircon was quite all in all a good hotel i would recommend it if you want to be close to the beach and the hustle and bussle.

After researching many hotels in Legian we chose the Padma and were not disappointed. We spent the second week of our annual Bali holiday here in 2 adjoining Deluxe Chalets (travelling with 2 adults and 2 teenagers). The rooms were beautiful and supplied with everything we could possibly need. The beds were so comfortable we wanted to take them home with us. The grounds and gardens were wonderfully maintained. The breakfast was absolutely amazing...everything you could possibly want and more!! The location was excellent for market shopping and lots of wonderful restaurants just a short walk away. The beach was a 50m walk away which was great for our teenage son who bought his surfboard with him. I definitely highly recommend the Padma, it is a beautiful resort in a great location and we will be going back next year for sure!!

Wow what can I say about this resort. Being 1st timers to Bali we did not know what to expect - the Padma did not let us down. When we arrived we were greated by friendly staff who were always willing to assist with anything we needed throughout our stay. The grounds are so beautiful and well maintained - even got to feed the resident squirrels and fish. We stayed in a garden club chalet, the room was very comfortable and clean accommodating three adults easily - housekeeping did an excellent job of making up our room each day supplying us with fresh towels, water and fruit. Breakfast buffet was amazing the choices were so varied they had everything from cereal, fresh fruit, pastries, to bacon, and eggs cooked any way you wanted. Within the resort we also dined at Bella Rosa and the Japanese restaurant for the theme dinners, the meals were very nice and reasonably priced for a five star resort. We enjoyed both the swimming pools, they are kept very clean, though we soon learnt you had to get there early to claim a sun bed. We definitely enjoyed our stay at the Padma and highly recommend it, Im looking forward to returning to this resort again in March next year such a great place to stay and very good location. Am also looking forward to returning to restaurant called "Pavone" located in JI Padma Utara - just outside the resort - one street down - definately go look for this place you wont be disappointed :) - lovely food, reasonable prices, fantastic atmosphere our fave Bali restaurant.

We have just arrived back from our wedding in Bali. We spent 3 nights in a lagoon access room prior to our wedding (which was elsewhere). A lot of our guests stayed at the Padma (as we had recommended it). I'm very glad we recommended the Padma, the resort is amazing, the staff, service and attention to detail is out of this world. An elderly relative fell and broke her arm after 2 hours of arriving at the Padma, the staff could not do enough for her, organising drivers to hospital and appointments and also offering to send a staff member to go to the hospital with her and wait there!! That's the type of service anyone in that situation would want. Thank you Padma Resort, we will be back!!! Julie and David - Adelaide - Australia

Room Tip: We loved the lagoon access room, but quite frankly any room at this resort would be excellent
