New hotel on the edge of Kuta towards Legian.
Much security including car checks, sniffer dogs then metal/ bag detectors. Not an issue.
Lovely spacious area for check-in with ambient lighting in the evenings. (Shame they allow smoking in this area, a bit off-putting someone puffing away next to you while you are checking in..)
lovely and bright with modern decor, but the design/ layout is bizarre. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bathroom area is directly off the room entrance from the corridor, which could lead to some embarrassing moments post-shower. It would be better if the privacy curtain is swapped along the side of the sink going towards the bed area. Oh - extremely comfortable bed, best sleep have had in ages!
Cupboard space is annoying- 2 very shallow drawers inside the cupboard next to the safe. Cannot access the hanging wardrobe space unless the drawers and safe are closed as there are sliding doors.
Pool area is ambient with pool bar offering happy hour 5-7pm. Cute hammock area. A lot of the pool is quite shallow, so good for little ones.
Breakfast buffet had ample choice, was very busy during our stay and was replenished regularly.
Staff were very pleasant :). Tours can be organised through the hotel although the booking office/ area is not immediately apparent or signposted.
This hotel will be great maybe once it figures out who key market is, it does not yet know what it wants to be but it is surely on its way. It's not a resort hotel, has a more corporate flavour. (IMHO) And although the hotel describes some architectural details and room finishings to be Balinese, it just does not have that Bali feel.
Some taps may be useful at entrance for cleaning off sandy feet after visiting Kuta beach across the road.
All together a nice stay and a pleasant trip.
