Amadea was in a good location on Jl Oberoi (i.e. eat street). The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and modern. We stayed as a group of four in two twin rooms and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool is nice and has a bar for cocktails during the day until 6pm, so great for relaxing with friends. Breakfast is served in a restaurant that is linked to the hotel at the entrance, and had all the options you would expect. Overall a very good hotel in a good location in Seminyak (although not close to the beach - 10-15 min walk away). I put in some dry cleaning in to be done by the following evening which I was assured by the staff would be done before we all went out at 6pm but unfortunately it was not. I had planned to wear one of the items but as it was not back in time this was obviously not possible. This was quite disappointing and I ended up having to buy something else to wear. Other than that one small blip it was a great stay.
Nice hotel. Quiet area by the beach. Lit up nicely in the night. Dance show was very good Not enough loungers around the pool (6!). Location was quiet but no restaurants or other facilities are nearby, so need a taxi. Some bad smells from outside streams weren't pleasant. Staff messed our spa and dinner bookings. Service was pleasant and always with a smile, but often too slow. Food wasn't 5* standard at the restaurant.
Aqua Octaviana is a great place to stay at a great value. Like an oasis in the middle of the desert The road is a bit dark and they need a few more signs to make it easier for you and your taxi to find. But once you find it it's like an oasis in the middle of the desert.
All staffs are GST! Greet, smile and thank you! Best resort in Bali. We booked our stay via kayak and when check in, was told by receptionist that breakfast is not included in my package which have been confirmed by agent kayak. I showed them that my booking is inclusive of breakfast, I then emailed to kayak but no response from them till date. Rimba is really nice, after check in, receptionist called and said that the resort will extend breakfast to us for the our stay in Rimba. The staffs at Rimba ensure that whatever request you have will be fulfilled at their best possible. Not that I can think of..
The hotel is absolutely stunning, with modern, tasteful and luxurious finishes. It is connected by frequent tram to its sister resort (Ayana) and to a private beach. It's a little out of the way from Jimbaran itself, and requires an inexpensive taxi ride to and from town. Food at the resort is good but expensive. The spa is astronomically expensive by Bali standards, although it is in line with Western high end resorts. The Rock Bar at the Ayana (for which Rimba guests get priority access) is a lifelong memory (although VERY expensive). The staff are extremely friendly and willing to help. The beach is beautiful. Location is quite convenient to the airport. In the early morning, it was only about a 10-15 ride. Honestly think it was our one-time bad luck, as opposed to a constant problem, but the air conditioning in our room could not be adjusted, even after we called for technicians to come and "fix" it. The temperature in our room hovered between hockey arena and cold-freezer. Made for poor sleep in an otherwise very comfortable room. Also, despite all the attention, the hotel managed to forget about giving us a promised wake up call. Fortunately, I set my own alarm just in case. But if I hadn't, we would have missed our early morning flight. The beach is very beautiful, but it's not for swimming. There are lots of big waves and big rocks, and the red flag is probably out 99% of the time. All in all, despite the shortcomings, I still believe this to be an outstanding hotel. Well worth the money (and priced much cheaper than many hotels that are likely comparable in quality).
