Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort
Ranked #3 of 14 Hotels in Tabanan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2011

This hotel is absolutely fabulous and the golf course is stunning but very challenging so I heard. The hotel was so peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta. However if you are after a place to party then I would not recommend to you. The hotel has a huge pool and we were able to find a private and quiet part of the pool to lounge in. There was also some Bale's around the grounds that we went and relaxed to watch the day disappear in.
The Tanah Lot temple is close enough to walk to and can be seen from hotel grounds. The town of Tanah Lot is also within a 5-10 min walking distance where there is a few markets to get a few things. The restaurants are very cheap to eat (for two people we spent 80 000 rupees, which is about AUS $8 for lunch) but close shortly after sunset.
The only fault I have is that the cost of dining at the hotel can be a little pricey for Bali but the quality was quite high.
We will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: we stayed in a garden view room and were happy

This hotel was beautiful..... The photos on the hotel website do not do it enough justice. We had the best time, the staff were lovely, the pools were out of this world and the views were picture perfect. We will be going back to Pan Pacific Bali within 6 months. The lobby and pool rooms are being renovated currently, it caused us no problems and you could not hear a thing. The shopping is great nearby at Tanah Lot, and the hotel drops you of and picks you up when you want. I have stayed 5 star hotels in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, and India, but this hotel was by far the best, highly recommend.

This is the only resort to stay at if you're looking for the ultimate 5 star experience in a quiet , tranquil location without the price tag of the other 5 star resorts on the island in the areas of Sanur and Nusa Dua. The advantage of being 50km from Denpasar is that there is no pollution and no noise from crazy traffic. Just the sound of the ocean crashing. There are free shuttles into Kuta and Seminyak 3 times daily. The staff are wonderful and will do anything for you. The rooms are spacious. The sunsets are spectacular. Again, if you're up for the ultimate relaxation holiday this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Best view - Ocean view rooms.

Dear Adonatac,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We very much appreciate your understanding of our resort benefits and offerings through the specific praise and kind recognition noting our resort location, “do anything for you staff”, spacious room and its relaxing facilities.

We are particularly proud of our comfortable setting free of pollution and enhanced by the sound of ocean surf.

Service from the staff was excellent ,particularly from the transport desk and guest relations staff. The resort is situated on 120 ha right on the Indian Ocean with mainly cliff face. It is easy to walk to the ancient Tanah Lot Temple at low tide. The staff will quickly arrange transport to any part of the resort by golf cart or a shuttle service to Seminyak.
About half the rooms have been refirbished to a high standard. The remainder of the rooms are being upgraded and should be finished by July.
The 18 Golf course surrounding the Hotel Rooms is magnificent. First class Pro Shop and Restaurant at the resort.
The Poolside Bar and Restaurant are very good but some of the staff were a bit slow when many people were present. I think the Aussie accents confused some staff.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms overlooking the golf course.

Of all the golf courses I played on the island.....this was THE BEST!

However, the highlight of our visit was Dewik Idayani, the Guest Relations Manager. With her warm and pleasant manner, she helped us plan and book golf and transportation. She was very helpful and exceeded all expectations.

Looking forward to our next visit!

I chose this hotel based on the recommendations of a travel agent. The resort has everything you need...pools, restaurants, business center, gift shops. etc. That said the property is somewhat isolated, and after a few nights eating at the restaurants on site, we wanted to leave the property for our dinners. They do have a shuttle service that would take you out to town so that was nice and I recommend using it if you don't have a driver for your entire stay.

I enjoyed lounging by the pool. And I loved how the staff would replenish the water bottles in our room daily.

The view of the tanah lot from the hotel is nice. We walked there one afternoon and it was definitely doable.

Though the location is magnificent and the recreational facilities first class (outstanding pools for kids and adults a like, world-class golf course, tremendous spa and gym), the big disappointment was the fact that over 75% of the hotel is under construction. The entire property looks like a construction site and the sound of hammers and machinery permeates through the hotel in the daylight hours.
Also, the ocean-view rooms are all tiled so if anyone above you makes any noise whatsoever in their rooms; you are certain to hear it.

Room Tip: Get a top-floor ocean-view room!
