Rooftop was nice, it is just next to the beach, central. The toilet has a smell in the room i think because of the pipes, we always stayed close the toilet door, a part of the hotel is still is underconstruction, so it is usual to find yourself in a weird place. stuff smiles always, but for a high standart hotel it is not fair that they try to charge customers as soon as possible as they arrive to the hotel, it should be at the end of the stay, i had a problem with the agency, and the stuff tried to charge me 3times to ensure their payment, the high quality hotels dont care about money, they care about customers. But the stuff just wanted payment as soon as possible in this hotel.
The room that was booked had no view to the outside, it had a view looking into the center of the hotel. Very depressing. Not a place I would ever stay again
Comofortable destinantion close to the airport for next connection, not so far form shopping mall, service level was pretty good.
Near the airport , local shops and restaurants and a good place to relax. None
Hotel is very close to the airport for an arrival/ departure night and offers simple, clean, 'good value' accommodation and facilities.
swimming pool and the spa very good better than outside spa,the spa price also not expensive... location poor.....nothing can shop after nite life......
Cleanliness of the hotel.Very helpful staff team. The location.
Good for surfers not good for families beach club is a joke they have 6 sunbeds!!' Really noisy no soundproofing
The hotel was very clean and well maintained We booked a king bed and on check in were told they didnt have any - no room for compromise
Clean, lovely breakfast area and buffet, pool recliners always available, no towels left on chairs for hours so no-one else could use like at some hotels. not met at entrance when first arrived.
Location is very central,close to the beach,2 min with Vespa and 5 min walking distance.Shopping,restaurants,and night out places are all nearby as well.Very friendly staff,nice modern decoration,large hotel(was impressed,thought it was smaller).Breakfast is also complete,very international.Nice swimming pools,relaxing. We had to stay 3 days in a Suite before we moved into a standard room and there we had just one problem:the bathroom.Suite was large,nice,quiet,but the bathroom had poor light and the bath tub was clogged(we asked to be fixed,but apparently it didnt help whatever they did).The Standard room was better.Had a large shower and the light was good.
The hotel staff were courteous. The breakfast - very oily food and not much choice. A lot of flies and coffee hosue is just in front of main road so very noisy.
location and atmoshpere No king size bed avaialble although already put my preference.
Central location Very old room, smelly at times
Location, Facilities, Service, Activities, Staff and friendliness of service. In fact, the hotel's review score in booking.com is not fair. As mentioned it has only one review, I hope from the hotel guests putting his own review and I'm sure Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel will take best score in the world.
Enjoyable, relaxing, courteous friendly helpful staff, all added up to make a real hastle free holiday.
Excellent facilities, pleasent staff and surroundings and very central location. Excellent breakfast - but could innclude additional selecton of breakfast cereals.
Very central location, yet still peaceful and away from the hubbub of the street. Great pool. Huge breakfast buffet. Wifi is very intermittent
Good location for shopping in Kuta. Great pool and grounds, plenty of sunbeds. Current renovations of the restaurant meant there was a little building noise during the day
The breakfast buffet was delicious. You name it, it was available. Our room was always nice and clean and the added touch of a dog made out of a towel on our 2nd day was gorgeous! The swim up bar was used nearly every day of our stay and the pool was a lovely, comfortable temperature. The pillows gave us grief,, One was not high enough and two was too high, We both had crook necks. That was the only flaw though. I recommend you take your own if you can.
very relaxing we just wanted a few days away from our busy schedule it fitted the bill perfectly could'nt complain
It was a family hotel I had no young children so it was the wrong place for me. They gave me keycards to already occupied rooms and I walked in on a half naked man. It was really disturbing for both of us.
Hospitable staff and good ambience No proper lifts and we have to climb up and down a few staris every time we need to get to our room from the lobby.
Relax and no congestion within the hotel No sauna
Pleasant & close to everything
The staff in every area were very friendly & helpful. The food was good & well presented at breakfast. We also liked the adults only plunge pool area, as we dont have small children it was nice to be able to have some adult space,it was very relaxing for us after a very stressful year. We have no comment to make as there was really nothing we didnt like.
good location, convenient for shopping and beach walk. internet connection fee is very expensive!
The comfort of the facilities, the friendliness of the staff and their desire to ensure your stay was at highest level at all times.
Close to all the action in Kuta and a lot of good places to eat. It is more a family hotel, and not that great a location for single people.
The happy hour at the pool bar The polution of the air in Bali Kuta (a bit beside the hotel)
The hotel is in need of a slight upgrade but it is big, clean and safe. It was a fair walk to our room from the reception area, but the grounds are really big and well maintained. The pool is also big and great if you have kids with you. If you want to sight-see, renting a car is really cheap, I think that we paid $* U.S so the parking facilities is a bonus. \n \nIt is only a few minutes from the airport, but cabs are so very cheap that it does not make too much diffference where you stay in the area. All-in-all, a reasonably good hotel.
The location was excellent if you are on a overnighter in Kuta and want to be close to the shopping We were on the 3rd floor, 6 sets of stairs and no porter to help us get our cases to our room :-(
Absolute perfect location for shopping and close to airport at the same time. Nice dining/bar area. Spa open early and closed late, which is great. Room need refurbishing, a bit oldish, and don't smell nice and fresh. Also, internet is not free. For the price paid, these elements should be reviewed.
Excellent location, neat room Rate on the higher side
I think the location of the hotel is probably the best point. Services are generally good. Breakfast buffet spread is good and it is different everyday. The hotel is however a little noisy, and very crowded during the time I was there. The hotel areas have lush greenery with trees and bushes - love it. Staff are generally friendly and nice, but the check-out process was a little slow. Something I thought could be improved.
expensive and appeared to just want to ripped you off, staff response to no in house movies and telephone not working was poor. Room service was poor
If you like staying in Kuta, this is a nice place, as it isn't located right in the center of Kuta so it isn't too crowded or too noisy. The music by the pool, it is quite difficult to relax...
My first time at ramayana and will definately stay again. in the centre of kuta but very quite resort. Some of the tourists were painful. I would go to the pool and people would put there towells on the beds and no people around.they would leave there towell there all day but would go off. I had no where to lie down.the pool areas pretty quiet but no where to relax.
central location in Kuta, next to the beach (not even 5 min walk), next to restaurants and coffee bars, good facilities, nice and clean rooms, with booking of the executive deluxe category vouchers for SPA and for afternoon tea had been offered, would stay there again during first half an hour after check in hotel staff came 3 times to the room to deliver flowers, welcome letter, and a fruit basket.
the spa breakfast
Very helpful friendly & honest staff
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).
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..
Friendly and helpful environment; welcoming and cosy lauout. They catered for our special vegetarian breakfast very well. Please my name is not dr. Sanderstead but dr. Jain
it was a nice boutique hotel situated in a very good spot on the beach at Kuta. Kuta has become somewhat of a very busy place now much different rom whenI went there 30 years ago. it is now busier and more cosmopolitan. As such it was great to return each day to the peace and solitude of the Alam Kulkul.
The hotel is able to accomodate the whole familiy in 01 rm (04 pax) The breakfast buffet could do with more varieties , especially local food.
Bad atmosfeer, poor facilities !!!!!
Room cleaning started very late in the afternoon.
The location was fantastic, close to the beach, close to shopping and restaurants but far enough away to get peace and quiet. The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodated a request to change rooms because we wanted a double bed not two singles. The hotel is perfectly suited for older couples and families because there are no groups of "yobbo's"
cealn, good and freindly staff this is the worst comminication experience i had. Holiday people dont have time to go to reception to connect internet. very very poor service a for 4 star hotel
This was my second visit to Alam KulKul, and I completely enjoyed it. The staff are very friendly.It is a very quiet place to stay, even though you are close to the craziness of Kuta. I always book the Lanai room. The lanai rooms overlook the pool and are lovely. I noticed in some reviews that the hotel had bed bugs. This scared me a bit this visit. The good news is, that the hotel addressed the issue and treated the rooms. I talked to the front desk manager about it, and he was very honest and explained that they took care of the situation, bought new mattresses, etc. I saw the fumigation signs on the doors. I was impressed that they owned up to the problem and dealt with it.
Staff were extremely friendly
The location is good - only a short walk from the main beach in Kuta, but if you dont want to walk you are in a perfect spot to tant without to much passing traffic. I had to check out earlier than my intended stay, as I had problems with the hot water in my room. It got so bad that I complained 3 times and could not shower or bath if and when I wanted. I eventuallly checked out and went down the road to another hotel for the last week and a half.
Beautiful setting just next to the sea. The spaciousness and Balinese design of each lodging surronded by different varieties of trees,shrubs, plants and flowers simply make it seem like a peaceful paradise. All in all, a great place to retreat in serenity and tranquility. The lobby is also very impressive although a bit liveless! Staff do not always observe the "Do Not Disturb" sign - too eager to clean the room?! The internet-charge is much too exorbitant (50,000IRP) in proportion to the fact that it is slow and in a very small room with not enough privacy. Hotel room can do with a bit of facelift.
The atmosphere was good. Pool was great Price to high for bali. Had to pay for poor wifi connection
Nice, clean rooms, welcoming staff, great buffett breakfast. Expensive food/drinks. Just outside the hotel is a very nice and very cheap restaurant. Also, bottled water and soda cheap outside the hotel
Nice resort. It is about 20 years old, but they do a good renovation. Beautiful architecture: wonderful reception - nice bedroom. Nice garden and clean beach. Close to the airport. The airport is open 24 h a day! Old air condition. Most people did not use the retaurant. It is expensive in comparison to the restaurants outside on the beach.
Fantastic tropical garden, nice Balinese architecture, tranquility & cosiness/ However the ocean was very dirty (full of debris0 compared to nearby stretches of shore at Intercontinental and other hotels
Very beautiful territory of hotel, good beach, the good location. Awful rooms and bathrooms! The urgent renovation Is required!
Gives the impresion of abandoned area,everything dirty around,only 3 unbrelas available in pool area the rest were broken and lay aside,I am sure this hotel will close down soon
just the landscape and breakfast pictures on website are deceiving. very old.needs massive makeover .full of mosquitoes .doesn’t worth the money.very popular for Russians.
lovely buildings in the style of Balinesian temples are placed in a beautiful tropical garden, wide sandy beach close to the hotel compex with shade and enough sunbeds to relax, romantic sundown and dinner in the fish warungs on the beach.
Room is big, nice garden, private beach and swimming pool. No wifi in the room. Not sure whether it's because of the air-con or the wooden furniture, there is very strong scent in the room, too strong to fall asleep, basically I didn't sleep all night long.
Right on the busy Jimbaran Beach which is lovely, plenty of good value beach bars very close by. The hotel lacks any atmosphere.
Very good food. Good big pool. During rainy season Jimbaran Beach gets dirty
Good location, only 2 mins walking distance to centro shopping center and kuta beach. We stayed there for four nights. The first night we found that the air con was not cold enough and we had complained to the hotel, they did fix it but nothing improved. Then we asked to change the room by the following day. And much better even the air con not really cold like i expected.
We had stayed in many hotels in Bali in our many visits to Bali and this hotel was so far the most suitable for our purpose of stay. It is locarted just opposite the famous shopping mall - Discovery Mall and centrally located in Kuta. The villa concept of the hotel is just nice.
Room too small and bathroom should be refurbished
It was really great, the people were friendly and the service of the room was as to be expected - Great! I didn't find anything to complain about.
The location on the Adhi Jaya Hotel is excellent being directly over the road from Discovery shopping centre and right in the middle of Tuban. Easy to get anywhere and surrounded by everything you need. The hotel is quiet and well maintained and the staff friendly. The rooms are spacious and clean and the pool though small is lovely. I had no negatives about this hotel.
