“In need of some maintenance - but great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

I visited Taman Sari about 18 months ago for a day and decided to come back for a longer stay. The location is great - off the main road and right on the beach with spacious and well established grounds. As mentioned in other reviews, the staff are just lovely. The spa is definitely worth a few trips too.

We stayed in two different suites - a Junior suite and the Turtle suite. The difference in price between the two was considerable, and although the Turtle suite was a little quieter and had a view to the sea, we could not see the value in the latter in comparison. It was slightly larger and the furniture a little softer (the bed was a bit saggy though).

Overall I felt that, for the price, the resort needs to be better maintained - a lick of paint here and there - some new/mended mosquito nets, new towels, better facilities in the room (e.g kettle and tea/ coffee, better information on the area and activities) and more comfortable seating outside the suites, better pool maintenance for algae etc. The resort has a lot of staff, so I am sure that this kind of attention to maintenance could be managed to ensure better value for guests.

All that said, we did enjoy our time at Taman Sari - it is definitely a great location to stay in Pemuteran.

I feel like back home every time I am back to Taman Sari Bali Resort and spa, at front office no busy asking my voucher my credit card or copy of my ID Card, they remember my name and my family, the room as expected , always bright, clean and smell good.
the garden , the swimming pool always better looks everytime I come back.
to get the Pemuteran, well took me 3 hours driving slowly passing the beautiful village of Belimbing and pupuan, my favorite route, I always took the tabanan, antrosari, belimbing, pupuan, seririt and pemuteran.
the restaurant getting better not only the taste but the price. they have a small spa and very handy after my day trip swimming or snorkling.
the location as beach front, with the coral project http://biorockbali.webs.com/, and just walk away for the turtle project too.
the beach very safe for the children and the water always clear.
back to taman sari, as back the time 20 years...that is Bali I always wanted.
I love it

Room Tip: if you with family of four with small children, you better ask the villa, the rate will be the same...

Good points:
The staff were nice, the food wasn't bad in the restaurant, the grounds are pretty
Bad points:
The thatched roof structure is quite open so the rooms are full of mosquitos and we had large tokay geckos in our room.
The staff were nice and tried to accomodate us, even offering us a villa at no extra cost which was good. They said it's normal to have tokays and mice because of the gardens ... which is great if you don't mind them but if you don't want to sleep with that much nature in your room it's not a suitable hotel.
It's on the beach but the beach is dirty and busy with fishing boats so not good for swimming or strolling.
The standard room was in an appauling condition, nothing like the photos, stains all over the place, big gaps under the doors etc.

On a recent diving trip, we stayed in a budget room with beds that were a bit small, but the highlight was the authentic and very tasty balinese food in the restaurant where we ate on each of the 4 nights we were there. The friendly and attentive service and the private beach were also very good.

Room Tip: If on a budget, choose a deluxe bungalow and pay the extra money, not a standard room.

Taman Sari still "has it all" - beauty, hospitality, caring and Balinese-ness. Congratulation to the management, staff and the village. Hopefully the planned airport will never make it - the eco habitat would be completely destroyed!

We always enjoy staying in older Balinese hotels where the rooms has character. Not like the newer concrete hotels with very cold designs which totally doesnt fit the Bali-scene.

We stayed in the villa for one night and in the bungalows for the next night cause part of the group left earlier so we dont need the whole 3 bed room villa anymore. The villa is excellent, clean and comfy. The previous guests must have cranked up the AC very hard, we didnt need to turn it on till the next day and the rooms was still pretty nice and cool.
The bungalow rooms felt older than the villas but not in a bad way. It was charming with nice terrace looking at the well maintained gardens..

Beach is one of the nicest on the north coast of Bali. It's a snorkling beach, not a sun-bathing nor surfing kind. The sand is darker and plenty of coral fragments around. The snorkling/diving is very nice! they managed to grow beautiful corals and attract so many fish from a barren (or broken?) bay where there was barely any fish 15 years ago.
