Boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and we couldn't be more pleased by the wonderful hospitality shown to us at the Padma Resort. We were met at the airport for our hotel transfer in a very nice, clean and comfortable car which was a welcome relief after arriving in Bali quite late from Sydney. From the moment we arrived, we were well looked after by staff who did everything to help us settle in. The welcome drinks were a lovely surprise - very refreshing after a long flight without any catering! Shortly after check-in we were showed to our room by a very friendly and pleasant staff member, whose name unfortunately escapes me. We were very impressed by our room, which was one of the Deluxe Chalets on an upper floor which overlooked the garden. We also requested the password for the complimentary Wi-Fi, which we found to be very fast and reliable.
As it was quite late and weren't confident that eating establishments outside the Resort would be open, we ordered room service, which was delivered promptly and very delicious. We enjoyed a restful and quiet night's sleep. One feature of the room I really liked was the wooden sliding doors that open up to the balcony - which also completely shield any sunlight from coming in, which is great if you like your room to stay dark when, or if, you decide to sleep-in a bit. I also really appreciated the 3 complimentary bottles of water (topped up daily) and fresh fruit. The bathroom amenities were also the best I've ever had the pleasure of using - and I've stayed at other supposed 5 star hotels around the world! The shower was huge and amazing - the water was perfectly warm and the pressure from the showerhead divine. Very, very relaxing.
Breakfast the next two mornings was great. I was really looking forward to having donuts for breakfast as I had seen them in the photos on TripAdvisor of the breakfast buffet - and I was not disappointed! There was a great variety of food on offer including Western, Japanese and traditional Indonesian breakfast items. I really enjoyed the Bubur Ayam (chicken congee) - it was my favourite dish at the buffet and a wide variety of my favourite condiments were available to go with it. The omelette made on the spot for you was also delicious and perfectly cooked. Some of the fruit tasted a bit funky, but maybe it was just me, as the boyfriend found no problems with it. Tea and coffee were constantly being topped up and used plates cleared, in a friendly and non-intrusive way which I really liked.
We relaxed in the sun on the loungechairs by the pool - it was lovely, apart from children diving in and splashing us a few times.
There are plenty of eating and shopping opportunities near the Resort. We explored on foot for most of our trip, but ocassionally when we got tired and weary of the sun and heat, we hopped into a taxi, of which there are plenty just cruising down the streets.
We used the bag storage service as we had to check out and our flight was not until almost midnight and found our bags were kept safe and secure. We were offered a lift to the airport from the Resort at 1900hrs that night, but got stuck in a nearby restaurant with slow service and didn't make it back until 1940hrs! We felt bad that we could not inform the Resort as didn't have international roaming on our mobile phones, but were extremely grateful when one of the staff still offered to drive us to the airport in one of the Resort vehicles. We were the only guests to be transported and were very relieved - especially after we found out there were no taxis available at that time.
Thank you to the Padma Resort staff for exceeding our expectations. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to telling our friends and family what a great experience we had.
