Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Mirage Resort Tanjungbenoa
We stayed at this hotel for 15 nights in April and had a wonderful time!!! The staff were exceptional and myself and the rest of my family always felt special each morning when they greeted us by name. The buffet breakfast is incredible and we looked forward to it daily.
We upgraded to two romantic rooms upon arrival which was worth the extra amount of money as we had postcard views of the pool and beach!!! These rooms were also more updated.
The beach was beautiful although the water was not 100% swimmer friendly. My niece was stung by a sea urchin the evening before we left and the staff were incredibly efficient when it came to getting a doctor to come to the hotel to see her.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again as we considered it to be a perfect holiday!!!!!
We used to stay in Kuta area, but then we get bored. we tried to search for other hotels in Bali and found The Grand Mirage.
Stayed in this hotel for 12 nights.
whatta great holiday that we have! have the superb beach that i will say is the best that you can find in Bali!
staffs are friendly, great holiday athmosphere, you just don't want to leave this hotel!
You won't be disappointed!
Very nice resort, although perspective may be skewed
Stayed at this resort for 5 nights in Nov 2005 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Travelled with spouse and infant daughter. Very friendly staff. Did not experience any of the difficulties mentioned by previous reviewers, however that may be a result of low occupancy due to the recent terrorist attack on Bali. Having said that it was Indonesian holiday so there were quite a lot of locals for first 2 days.
Nice room, albeit a little tired. OK beach, not suitable for swimming (sea weed). Good breakfast buffet included (otherwise cost is US$16 per person).
Location not the best, as Tanjung Benoa is not as developed as other areas, but if quiet and peace is what you're after, this is the spot. Did not find restaurants to be a problem in Tanjung Benoa as mentioned by other reviewers, instead found restaurants in area to be of good quality and reasonable.
Good resort for children. Playground on the resort, good pool with large shallow area.
Can buy into all inclusive, but would advise against that since food outside is so cheap with a good variety.
Tried seaside massage - OK, not the best. Did not try spa.
Overall service very good. Very nice and helpful staff. Staff attempted to babysit for us during breakfast everyday (not pushy, just trying to be helpful so we can eat...)
Siamo stati per la seconda volta a bali quest'estate in Agosto.
Abbiamo prenotato al Grand mirage una camera deluxe con colazione compresa.
La camera era molto bella, spaziosa ed affacciava sul mare,
la colazione ma del resto anche le cene (a base di pesce) eccellenti.
La SPA dell'hotel è ....meravigliosa (non economica).
e buon viaggio a Bali
Noise, noisy and more noise. Was there for a month June/July 05 and it was always noisy. Large groups of Koreans?Koreans arrive and leave daily and leave all their doors open and are in and out of each others rooms and yell in the corridoors at all times of day and night. Changed rooms a couple of times and then found one on the end was ok for a week until the building works under us. Changed again only to to get one which was quiet the day we moved into it and it started...wailing/chanting on a tape recorder played extremely loudly EVERY day all day over and over until at least midnight. Next door to the hotel from the beach. No peace around the grounds either as jetskis and watersports go on and on, you cannot swim in the sea. Unfortunately picked when Indonesian school holidays are on so was full of children. Many islamic families consisting of several wives and average 6/8 kids apiece. Scramble to find table at breakfast although choice of food very good. Few restaurants outside the hotel but no bars. Prices gone up a lot for Bali (my 3rd time)
Nice hotel, kids love it.
We stayed there for 4 nites (12-16July). The location is quiet. It's very nice hotel, delicious breakfast buffet, clean, big room and nice staff. We are very happy with this hotel and we got very special rates (USD 44/nite) from asian rooms. It's unbelievable. Also they have free kids activities. My daughter loves it.
Great place to choose
The hotel has one of the best SPA in bali. The prices are cheap. The hotel rooms are cheap. The pool is great. The employees are friendly. The beach has lots of activities. It's central to many other places even tho is towards the tip of Bali. The breakfast has many many different choices. The only bad thing is that the room isn't the best. The bathroom is not the greatest, but overall, from 1 to 10(best), this hotel is a 9.
Very Good Hotel and Holiday
What a great holiday , very relaxing , friendly employees and a very good beach . Did stay for 12 nights and we have nothing at all to complaint about this Resort . Food , drinks all up to the expected standard . The rooms have everything you need and are very clean . Around the hotels you have Restaurants and some good shops . We are planning to come back again to Grand Mirage .
Really lovely hotel, staff were very helpful. We were automatically upgraded to a delux room which was fantastic. Rooms were clean and comfortable, beds turned down every night and flowers left on pillows.
We did have to complain 2 nights about the Japanese/Korean tourists in the adjoining room. There was a constant stream of coach parties changing every day which was a bit annoying. But the staff were up knocking at their door within 5 minutes of us ringing down.
All restaurants in the hotel were good, we were room only and were totally ripped off for breakfast one morning 30 dollars for 2 and it was about 4 dollars outside the resort... lesson learned. There was music most nights in the hotel bar but atmosphere was a bit dead... plus bar staff kept coming over to have chats which was annoying after a while as we just wanted to be alone. We had drinks in our room a few nights just to get away from them. The area its self is good - lots of lovely restaurants but no bars which for 2 irish people was a huge let down!!! Kuta was our only refuge.
The most annoying thing was the beach hawkers trying to sell you things when you only want a walk in peace. They are not allowed near the hotel so once you stay on the upper part of the beach you are not approached. Pool was fantastic, aqua aerobics and water polo for the energetic. Would recommend it for a relaxing break but for more nightlife and fun go to Kuta, since the bombings Nusa Dua is very very quiet indeed.
Loved it. loved it. loved it!!!!
Excellent value for the money. Be sure to get a seaview room. The view is spectacular and the rooms are incredible. Paid only $61 for deluxe seaview by booking online. Breakfast buffet is fabulous and changes daily. Pool and beach are beautiful. Rooms are luxurious. Would stay here again anytime!!!

... all the Temples the carvings and artwork is amazing and at each one you could spend hours walking around at the Water Temple people from all over Bali came to worship from 1300hrs and spend 3 hours praying! Before they pray they bathe in Holy Water which pours up from a spring and is channelled around the Temple. Each of the Temples we visited was in a valley and you had to climb down a few hundred steps and the locals ...
... swimming right next to them) absolutely disgusting! They got out and everyone breathed a sigh of relief, until we realised they had just moved their activity to the sun bed right next to us! Everyone in the vicinity was not impressed- and a cool Aussie guy actually photo bombed them-Sarah gave him a fist bump! Eventually they got up to leave- and actually tried to run away without paying for their drinks and food!!! Well it seems that this was the second scene in public ...
That evening we went out to see a traditional Balinese dance show, which was as mental as it was excellent. We got there after the performance started though as we later realised we'd set our watch to the wrong time zone (Bali and Java are different by one hour). Firstly, the music sounded like the score to someone having a stroke. Thirty men in three sections bash the hell out of these cowbell like xylophones with one recorder playing going off-piste ...
... by the roof, even more open than the room but still private. The lock on the door of the hut was just a padlock and when inside the room we locked it with a piece of wood. The room stank of bug spray... Headache material. We got settled, leaving most of our stuff in our cases locked up and went for a stroll. We walked up the main road from the guesthouse passing a tiny shop and a restaurant, there were also a few dogs which we avoided. We then saw some dogs in the distance who ...
... pics attached. On the way back towards my moped from the second temple, I find a peddler who is selling oil paintings of Tanah Lot. I haggled and got two awesome paintings for 210000 rupiah, just over $20. Very good deal and I will be able to stretch them and have one for a gift and one for myself. It will be a cool way to remember this vacation when I hang it on my wall. I buy a roasted ear of corn and a slushy, then I hit the road and drive back. For ...
