Padma Resort Bali at Legian
Travel Blogs from Legian
We woke after a great nights sleep, nothing compares to the nice soft bed. No chance of much sleep on the plane.
After breakfast looked around the resort, wow is it big! Met Puju and organised some sight seeing for during next couple of days. Left for Kuta in the afternoon by taxi and started at the Bali Memorial. It was emotional to stand …
We've arrived! After 24 hours in the air across 4 flights plus 12 hours of layovers and an international date line crossing, we have finally landed in Bali.
While checking in at the Des Moines Airport, I was able to get all of the boarding passes without Casi finding out about the destination. My plan had worked. I handed her the …

Am nächsten Tag wechselten wir Hotel, holten unsere Wäsche ab und fanden am Abend dann doch noch über weite Umwege das Steaklokal. Der nächste Tag, die nächste Enttäuschung: wir wollten in den uns empfohlenen Wasserpark. Auf der Website steht groß dass sie jeden Tag außer balinesisch Neujahr offen haben. Wir freuen uns auf ein bisschen Spaß und Ablenkung. Dort angekommen dann die ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Padma Resort Bali at Legian
Check your bills !
I stayed in this hotel for 5 days in August. The location is good, the garden chalets are clean and spacious. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed. The swimming pool is big and attractive. Please note that swimming in the sea is practically impossible because of the strong tides and currents (but try the surf body boards !). One thing was annoying. I decided to check the bill of my food/beverage consumptions and found out that local employees (in one case I recognized the duty manager's signature) earn an additional income by falsifying/signing bills on guest's names and room numbers (in my case 4 out of 12 bills were falsified). So, be aware and write down your consumptions (as you do not get a copy).
I booked for a superior room direct at the hotel's website. There were some hiccups when we checked in. No superior room was available when we checked in so we wasted about 2 hours before things were sorted out.
Concern over room allocation and club benefits
I have just read the review on Hotel Padma Bali from:
_member, Melbourne Australia -May 24 2005 re"do not stay at the Padma"
We have booked this hotel and have a Garden Deluxe Chalet room with
Club Benefits. Could you please give me more information from this member as to why it was so disapointing - just so we are prepared and know what to look for! This would be of great service to us and could make or break our holiday. Your site has been most helpful up to now and I hope you can assist me with this really important information.
Do not stay at the padma
good location but make make sure your travel agent confirms the room type you have paid for otherwise you will be disappointed as the hotel management does not care if they over book your room. be prepared to complain and be taken to a better hotel. do not include club garden club benifits in your package as this is a waste of money. if you want toast at breakfast be quick because one 4 slice toaster between 150 people may disappoint you
We stayed in the Padma for 4 nights 5 days, was able to get a late check-out at 6:00 p.m. so was able to spend the whole last day relaxing. We stayed in a Junior Suite, very nice and clean. The hotel grounds was the most tropical place and very well maintained. The pool area was nice and big for children and adults. Nice swim up bar area. They have an American style breakfast which was very nice. We had dinner one night at a theme style BBQ and the food was fantasic. They had an Indonesian style dancing which kept us entertained. The hotel staff was very helpful and the language barrier never seemed to exist, they spoke pretty good English. They also supplied us with 3 bottles of water a day so was able to use that, so managed not to get sick. The rooms are situated in a way where you feel like you have a lot of privacy. This hotel you might have to pay a little more money for but it is well worth it. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! This is what you call Tropical Paradise!!!
Great value for money
I stayed in Hotel Padma in February 2005 and I really loved it! Very peaceful, not bordered by busy streets. Has excellent gardens to walk around and a very good pool area. The breakfast is something amazing!! Very good variety: continental, american, japanese, indonesia, thai, vegetarian selection of buffet breakfast! Rooms are spacious and are in good conditions. I stayed in a Deluxe room which is around a stantard but was very good quality. Plus they offered 3 bottles of mineral water per day!
A friend and i both 18 years of age stayed at Hotel Padma Bali in October 2004. We stayed in a Delux Chalet, absolutely beautiful. The rooms are spotless, beautiful bathrooms and excellent room service. Our room looked upon frangapani trees and a beautiful tropical garden. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, so much to choose from. The food from the hotel menu was very nice too. Not too expensive to us but for the Bali people this hotel was very expensive. We ate at many resturants in Bali too, one of our favourites was the Indo-National, just off Padma Street, (walking distance) run by an Australian couple from Sydney. You can get a great meal for a great price, and the food is very yummy. Extremely nice couple. Another resturant was Macaronis on Legian street, very swish.
We were staying at the Padma in July 2004. We loved every minute of it. The pool area is glorious, the staff efficient and friendly the atmosphere was magic. Very clean and well run motel.
Big Hotel with great pool!
My husband and I stayed for five days at the Padma in June 2004 - its a very large hotel and we found it to be quite impersonal. We were initially bumped from the room we had booked and only got it back when we insisted on it, the hotel staff were quite happy to give us one of the cheaper rooms in the hotel complex that smells like mould.
Having said all of this, we ended up having a lovely stay, mostly by the pool. Our room was very clean and had a nice big balcony looking over the garden. There are many, many cheaper restaurants nearby so we didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast.
I would recommend this hotel if you like big hotels.
Stayed at the Hotel Padma in Bali. Very beautiful hotel, with landscaped areas everywhere. We stayed in one of the garden villas (rather than the main block), which had a beautiful bathroom, and little patio where we read books and drank wine in the evenings. Well worth the extra for this.
