Hard Rock Hotel: The Happening Hotel

This popular Singaporean-owned joint is still as popular as ever and they could still pack in the crowds even after the recent incidents. Understandably, security is tight here and you'll be scanned even when you pop into the shops to buy the ubiquitous Hard Rock T Shirt.

I'm really impressed by the size of the pool over here - There are at least 3 connected pools and one of them even has sand,lol. The others have private pool side cabanas which can be booked for massages, I think. Stay here if you're the regular party animal. They have beach volleyball activities and lessons for surfing. I think they have a special package deal right now with Garuda Airlines (dep from Singapore ) so surf the web and check out the details.

The impression this hotel gives me is, wow!

What a magnificant hotel, what nice entrance, what beautiful fountain, what a large reception hall, what beautiful settings for restaurants with a stage for performance, what a large pool with swimup bar and fountains with a beach view, what a beautiful beach entrance and convenient beach access.

Pacung Mountain Resort: Mountain setting for a bungalow!!!

Have not personally stayed here before, just here for lunch, but take a look at that bungalow on the rice terrace! I can definite see myself staying in that bungalow, waking up in the valley of rice terraces with the mountains in the background. Total peace, quite and isolation, the perfect place for toal relaxation.

Isolated bungalow in a rice terrace.

Yulia Village Inn: Ubud Hotel

It's a centrally located place to stay in Ubud. I wasn't very impressed with the service (housekeeping, breakfast) and the pool looked a bit unkept, but I guess it was ok for the price we paid.

Do bargain for the price!

Putu Bali Villa & Spa: Clean, Great Location & Good Price

Tucked away, just minutes away from the touristy activities of Kuta,
yet amongst some of the finest dining in town
is Putu Bali Villa & Spa.
Recently built a just couple of years ago, this hotel is in mint condition.

Located off the main road Jalan Peti Tenget,
the hotel is a 10 minute walk away from the more peaceful areas of the beach.

Shuttle bus service is offered.

Each Villa has A/C, an open air shower & bathtub, kitchenette, refrigerator, telephone porch or terrace.

The hotel has its own spa, offering a selection of massages, body treatments, facials, manicures and pedicures.

The hotel has been built in a typical Balinese setting with primitive statues and decorations.

Breakfast is served in the upstairs veranda
with magnificent views of the typical Balinese thatched rooftops and clouds.

All one bedroom Villas are located on the ground level.
The rooms were softer in light than the upstairs ones,
and all furnishings, towels, sheets, etc. were brand new.

Each Villa has a kitchenette adjacent to the bathroom sink and closets.
Kitchenettes extend to bar which opens out to the porch,
allowing outdoor entertainment amongst friends.

The Family Pavilion Villas are composed of a downstairs and upstairs room.
Each has a bathroom that has both a shower and bathtub.
The upstairs rooms are brightly lit by natural light.

There is a beautiful and large swimming pool with a sunken bar to idle away in the heat of the day.

This is one of the cleanest mid-range hotels that I have seen.

I highly recommend this hotel.

The published rates are:

Single One Bedroom Villa $75
Family Two Room Pavilion Villa $125

Not including 21% Service & Tax

But I have found on the internet, rates starting at $29 US.

Klub Kokos: Overlooking the rice fields

Klub Kokos is away from the noise of Ubud.
It is owned by an Australian/Balianese couple that make you feel very welcome.
They have lovely cottages with kitchen, diningroom, bedroom, and garden bath.
The patio is very nice to relax on after a full day of sightseeing.
We highly recommend Klub Kokos.

Very nice pool area, pretty gardens, views of the rice fields.
The staff is quite friendly and helpful. They baked my husband a birthday cake when we was there on his birthday.
They also can arrange tours with a wonderful driver.

Bali Mystique: My favorite place to stay in Kerobokan

When visiting Bali, we arrive and depart at Depensar airport, which makes the Kuta area a must to transit through. Usually preferring to avoid the young, party crowd I opt to stay in the Seminyak area, which has a more upscale crowd and is the new "happening" area.

Quoted from the "Best Bets" written by the American writer,
Christian Vanneque it says that located in Seminyak is the:

1) 'Best Electic Asian Restaurant - The Living Room
2) Best Pan Asian Restaurant'- Gado Gado
3) The Best Restaurant - The Restaurant a the Legian Hotel
4) Best International Restaurant - Ku De Ta
5) Best Sushi - Wasabi
6) Best Deli - Gourmet Boutique
7) Best Trendy Bar - Fidel's at Ku De Ta
8) Best Cool Music Bar - Liquid
9) Best Pre-Club Bar - Hu'u (right across from Bali Mystique
10) Most Elegant Lounge - The Lobby at the Legian Hotel

Right across the street from the Living Room, Hu'u, and within walking distance from Ku De Ta, the beach, upscale resorts such as the Legian Hotel is a small boutique style hotel consisting of twenty Bali Style bungalows, Bali Mystique.

Bali Mystique is owned by the charming Australian, ex-pat Norman, who is constantly renovating the very comfortable and clean bungalows. He has created a wonderful, family atmosphere among his guests, while staying on his property.

There is the option of the Standard Bungalow, Deluxe Bungalow, or if you are looking to make a larger investment, he is currently selling 28 year leases on the new, luxurious 1-2 Bedroom Apartments that he is constructing and should be finished by March 2004.

A swimming pool with bar, a massage room, and many more amenities to come are located on the premises.

Needless to say, you are located within short distance to all the newly 'happening' spots, the luxurious resorts and spas of Seminyak at a fraction of the price.

Bali Mystique gets a 4 star rating from me and my pure fidelity as my first choice of where to stay while in this busy, metropolitan capital of Bali.

Norman.....he's great!!!

Luv U Norman!

Sri Ratu Hotel: Smaller hotels are best

I have been to Bali about 11 times so far and love it.
I have stayed in big package deal hotels and also many of the smaller more private hotels as well.
The Sri ratu hotel located in Jalan Three brothers in Legian is a small hotel (about 30 rooms) that has great staff and a good location and is very quiet.
It has friendly staff and a more multicultural feel to it when compared the larger more expensive package deal hotels.
This to me is what makes the Sri Ratu a more interesting place to stay.

It has a swimming pool with different styles of air conditioned rooms for the budget traveller.
It has excellent food and is close to the Legian shopping area and the beach.
It is also close to the Seminyak nightlife strip and if you are lucky then Putu (staff) may rent you her motorbike for a good price too like she did for me.
You can call them direct to arrange your stay and the staff will organize your airport transfers.
If you want more of a family feel to your accommodation then you will find it here at the Sri Ratu.

Padma Resort Bali at Legian: Perfect Location

We stayed at Padma Resort Bali at Legian for seven nights. We really enjoyed our stay at Padma. The two pools were fantastic especially the lagoon pool. The deluxe chalet room was big in size with seventy channels LCD flat TV, king size bed, mini bar and in room broadband internet. The balcony had beautiful view of the Balinese garden. The bathroom provided with hair dryer, towels, tooth brush, soaps, shampoo and conditioner. Most of the items replaced daily and clean the room daily.

The serviced were excellent. The staffs were helpful, friendly and polite all understood English. The buffet breakfast was excellent value, combination of Western, Japanese and Indonesian. Every night a jazz band played in Taman Ayun café. At the Sunset Bar you can watch the sunset and listen to rock or reggae band, the genre changes. There’s also gym but we didn’t go to there.

Every Friday night there’s a culture night and I think every Thursday there’s a cooking class on Indonesian cooking. We didn’t go to any of the two. You can also have dinner at few of the restaurants located at the hotel, Tenkai Japanese restaurant and we ate at Bella Rosa Italian restaurant.

The hotel had beautiful Balinese garden surrounded with Frangipani trees, palms, clumping bamboos, flamboyant flowers and well decorated plants. Walkways and steps lead to pond fill with colorful carp and outdoor living areas with thatched pergolas. Pathways leading to the temple combine with groundcovers. Also you’ll see godly stone statues, lanterns and wall panels. It was quite relaxing walking and admiring the garden. Actually we can spend your entirely holiday at the resort but we didn’t.

Two excellent pools and pools for the little one, as a matter of fact there are facilities for the kids to amused themselves. Internet and reading room. Honestly the resort it has lots of things to amused you.

The location of the resort is ideal very close to shops, restaurants, supermarket and it’s a beachfront resort.

We paid through our agent $1,575AUD for seven nights including buffet breakfast. I thought it was reasonable and we will stay here again.

The Balinese garden was just beautiful and well maintained. The facilities is excellent especially the two pools. The ground staff were friendly especially the staff at the Taman Ayun cafe, although the receptionist (front desk staff) could have been little bit more friendly.

Villa Kendal #12: A Hidden Villa

Some of Bali's best secrets of places to stay,
are not on the internet,
can not be booked through a travel agency,
but rather it takes a bit of walking and searching
or through word of mouth.

Ahhh! You are lucky to find this secret place on this site.
While my sejour in Bali,
with just that,
a little bit of walking and searching,
I found a secret road off of Jl. Petitenget in Kerobokan,
right next to the Full Moon Restaurant
are two small streets of residential properties for either rent or for sale.

At Villa #12,
behind a small door,
is Villa Kendal.
There are two lovely small houses on one property,
with a swimming pool, open kitchen, phone, a bathroom in each house,
a/c, satellite TV, stereo, and DVD player in both homes.

This Villa can be rented for the day at $100 US,
for the week at $700 US, and $1,500 US for a month.

And best of all,
these prices can be negotiated
depending on the season and with a little bit of luck.

To reserve for this little, hidden haven,
you can call (62-361) 734718 and ask for Putut,
the guardian of the house.

This property is walking distance from the beach,
the trendy restaurant Ku De Ta and The Living Room
and many other restaurants, spas, and luxury hotels.

Truly, a great place where to be.

Kuta Beach Club: Kuta Beach Club -its totally different inside ...

Though the outside of the hotel doesnt really impress me ...the inside it looks totally different ...well guess you can never judge a book by its cover ....( but how many tourist would actually go it and have a look before booking a room there ? )

Conveniently located in the center of Kuta
and just a few minutes from
Kuta Art market and Kuta beach.
Kuta Beach Club Hotel is
also minutes away from the
Ngurah Rai International Airport

Nice pool , serene balinese garden, stone figurines ( batuan ) scattered all over the garden and very near to the bustling Kuta Market and Kuta Beach
!

RISATA Bali Resort & Spa-III: Taking the Lead Going Green

I have not talked about the cool blue pool of Risata, it's one of the very beautiful small pool, with excellent service. Since, we were traveling in a group with lots of sight seeing activity, there was very little time for the pool. But, myself and Munu decided to use the pool for sometime in the afternoon. After, returning from the beach activity , we just dipped in the cool blue pool of Risata.

The helpful staff at Risata, also helped us to get settled at the pool by providing us cool drinks immediately. It was a real nice experience for us.

The Hard Rock Hotel: Not made to feel welcome

The Hard Rock Hotel in Bali does not go out of its way to make you feel welcome. You are very obviously staying inside a formula that is solely geared at making money, and you are just a number within that formula. The place is full of shops and they even have a price list for the items in your room, in case you 'accidentally' pack one...

All rooms are themed, but the theming is attrocious. from memory we stayed in a Reggae Themed Room, and theming in this case meant hanging a photo of Bob Marley on the wall!

The swimming pool however is huge, and nice to swim/lounge about in.

We spent most of the holiday in Ubud, which was great, but decided to stay near the airport for our last night, and the HR Hotel was a definite let down.

Errr, Great Pool
