“Romantic get-away near Seminyak”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

After a very exhausting and long trip from Mount Bromo to Bali, we arrived at 01.30 and where still received warmly by the super friendly staff and a welcome drink. When we got to the room, we fell in love with it immediately. The cozy and pretty Balinese style, the soft bed, pretty bathroom and of course loads of great TV channels, including HBO! The next morning we were able to ask for a late breakfast, so that we could rest from our trip. The breakfast was delivered to the room! We had our own balcony available from which we could enjoy it. The gardens are designed in such a way that you feel like the hotel is all yours! When you want to leave the hotel you do need to take a taxi, although Seminyak is only a 5 minute drive. Getting back to the hotel is usually easier if you tell taxi driver's it's a side street of Jalan Nakula since the address seems to be new. We extended our stay by 1 night using Agoda and they let us stay in the same room even though it was more expensive, really awesome! This is the perfect place to relax in a romantic setting, highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Corner suites have a more private balcony.

My title says it all and the reviews here certainly back it up. =)

I came here with my Partner for our 5yr anniversary we stayed over a week at Arana Suite and loved it. This hotel is smack bang in the center for traveling. If you want to go to the beach there's a free shuttle which takes 5mins. Taxis only cost $1-$2 to go to carefoure/central kuta and $5-7 to the airport. There are little 24/7 shops on the main Nakula road and sunset rd is only a 2 min walk away which is loaded with restaurants and shopping =D We even walked to beach walk mall which took 40 mins with a detour to the beach but was so worth it as it's an amazing walk.

The food here is pretty good, We had mei goreng and toast/eggs for breakfast, burgers at night for dinner. Try the watermelon juice!!! It's sooo good. I actually missed the food as the next hotel we went to was no where near as good.

The pool is a good size and found it to be a nice place to relax and drink fruit juice. As well as it was shaded during certain hours of the day, which was good for me as i have really pale skin and get burnt very easily.

If you want a tour of the island or would like a day driver Arana suite have an amazing tour service. You can look at their brochures and pick a tour package or you can make up your own tour and the driver/guide will take you to where you'd like to go. Which came to $50 US for 10 hours. They even have an option if you want to do a night stay somewhere and the driver will stay with you =D Which is really awesome!

One thing i noticed was the internet at Arana Suite was a lot better than any 5 star hotels we stayed at. It's even better than my home internet which says a lot about Australian internet >.< haha. But this was extremely good as i could use the internet all over the hotel, even by the pool.

My partner is sending his mother here as he loved it soo much! This hotel is really amazing, the staff are so caring and friendly, it really is just like being home, such a very warm and welcoming environment. When we left to go to our next hotel which was a 5 star hotel, for the first few days we actually wanted to go back to Arana, Which to me says a lot about how wonderful my stay was. I will definitely be coming back here and hopefully for a longer stay. =) Thank you Arana for a lovely stay for my first time in Bali.

Room Tip: Further away from the pool if you want quiet. Any rooms half way down are very peaceful. The top bal...

I just left this resort hotel. I stayed here for 4 days with 3 of my friends, so the 4 of us took the family rooms. We have our own patio, each room has it own standard facilities, comfy beds, lots of power outlets. The room was clean, the service were good, the staffs were so friendly and helpful, the rate for the rooms were good (the rates are better if you book prior of your coming). All is good here except they have to do something with the AC, sometimes they dont work really good.

I'm always a little fearful of booking hotel rooms despite after reading reviews but this was just lovely (my companion booked this anyway) I haven't read all the reviews but I'm sure they are all pretty consistent. Lovely rooms albeit a tad small esp the ones with 2 single beds over the queen size ones and food could be improved slightly but other than that all is good! How they designed the greenery to drape over the entire hotel is beautiful I could just walk up and down the pathway admiring the greenery hehe.. I think they use alkaline water in the shower which I forgot to confirm with them so don't be surprise if your skin still feels slippery after washing away the suds. We changed rooms once as we broke up our stay and we preferred the family suite on the ground floor than the one on the 2nd level. The family suites are all at the back one on each side hence 4 of them try to avoid the one on the right hand side on the 2nd level (sorry I forgot the room number) as the hot air from the compressors from the hotel next to Arana blows into your family area. Other pointers to take note: do carry the address around you as the taxis we took didn't seem to know where Arana is. There's a Circle K (24/7 shop) mins away so that's always good. All the best

Simply gorgeous greenery feeling hotel, each room packed with their own small mini patio. Not a huge resort hotel, but more of a small simple but tres chic boutique hotel.
strategically located in Nakula area which gave you easy access to Seminyak streets area or Sunset Road.
Love everything about this hotel.

Room Tip: Request for a room upstairs. More private

Just spent a month in Bali and stayed at the Arana for my last night on the island. For the price, this place cannot be beat: clean rooms, relatively fast and reliable (free) wifi, really comfortable beds, well insulated for noise, functional design, quiet & efficient A/C units and lots of power outlets to recharge your toys!
The only potential downsides to this place are the size of the rooms (they're tiny - therefore not recommended for an extended stay), the location of the pool (not much privacy, as it is just by the lobby) and the mosquitoes (there are lots - just ask one of the staff members to spray your room for mosquitoes when leaving the hotel to have dinner).
Breakfast is included in your room rate and although the menu is limited and they serve orange-flavoured crystals instead of real juice, it does the job. You order the night before and they can deliver it to your room in the morning. Located close to the airport - it took me less than 30 minutes to get there by cab, at a cost of 50,000 rupiah. Highly recommended for a short stay, especially if your budget is limited.

I think the hotel is quite good, although the small compound of area, but I like the greenery and warm feeling to suit Bali's vacation. Some setbacks are: breakfast menu is repeated and quite small portion in size per serving, aircond needed to take long time to cool (Daikin's problem?). The location is quite strategic, walking distance to nearer eating places, a few kilometers to beach and malls. But mind the bali's taxi, it's quite common the taxis here will not know where is this hotel are, so save your map to recognize if the taxi bring you longer route.
