Hello from BALI!!! Actually as I type we are on Gili Air, just off Lombok. But we have just spent the last 5 weeks or so loving, living, surfing, eating, sleeping, yogaing and generally being totally enamoured with …
Bali. Wow. We made it!! Indonesia presents more challenges traveling vs other more heavily pounded trails, and we went in reverse from most people who visit this country. In fact, they report that 80% of Indonesian visitors go only to Bali. Such a shame!!
Since we started off the beaten path in North Sulawesi, we were already broken in …
Yesterday we left Ubud and headed south to the more touristy area of Sanur. The majority of tourists are staying the southern areas of Kuta, Nusa Dua, and Seminyak. A slightly quieter choice is Sanur. We spent most of our time in Bali in Ubud in order to immerse ourselves in as much of the Balinese culture and traditions as possible. However, it …
Morning of our 2nd day in Bali... we were all set to go to Ubud in central Bali. It was a loooong drive going there. We got up late and got there at about one. We had lunch at Bumbu Bali of Nasi Campur and Mia Goreng... spicy food again, coconut and spices. I loved my banana-strawberry shake. We were not very sure if they give out complimentary tap …

Historical Traveler Reviews Bali Hyatt Sanur
I booked this hotel based on research both on the internet and various travel brochures in the UK.
Honeymoon in Bali
Very happy with this hotel. The gardens and pools are beautiful and the location on Sanur beach is ideal. The area does not have the madness of Kuta, but has plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you amused.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a little dark and perhaps could do with some redecoration, but nothing serious. Overall a fantastic stay.
Just returned from an 8 day stay at the Bali Hyatt. I had read a number of reviews and so was not sure what to expect. The hotel setting was superb. The gardens are beautiful and the public areas including reception, bars and pool areas are what you would expect - lush and tropical. The rooms were spacious although we did suffer from the damp smell that a number of people have commented on. The service was excellent, everyone was so helpful and made us feel welcome throughout our stay. The breakfast was ok but we got a bit fed up of having to wait in queues and ate outside the hotel but it was peak season so what can you expect! It has been reported that the drinks and food are expensive in the hotel and that is true if you compare it with the bars and restaurants in Sanur where you can get a meal for two, wine and beer for under £10, but we felt that the prices in the hotel were still cheaper than hotels at home.
Compare to the other hotels (grand mirage and Pertiwi) in Bali, I believed that the Hyatt is over rated. The price is much more expensive. The location is no that easy to get too. The SERVICE! is below ave. The Air conditioner doesn't work. The building structure is complicated. The room doesn't look like the pic on the website, but I will admit, the beach is much cleaner than others. Overall, the Hyatt is only ave.
Unfortunately our high expectations were not met. The hotel was OK but in it doesn't meet the usual high Hyatt standard. Most of the buildings are primarily made of concrete or concrete-like materials that doesn't fit into the beautiful surroundings. We had problems with unpleasant smell in the room - kind of mould smell. We tried to get another room but apparently the same smell is in all rooms. Very polite staff and fair prices though.
We went in June off 2005 for our honeymoon and where pleased with the quality of the hotel. The rooms are nice and big and the bathrooms are colourful.
Pinch me I'm dreaming
From the moment of our arrival we were treated as honoured guests. The place is a palace. Reception, restaurants, and public areas were spotless. Staff are incredibly polite and patient. The pools and poolside bars/ restaurants are 1st class. Plenty of beds best positions gone by 9am, still cannot fault it. would I book it again - deffo! Service charge is included on everything but tip anyway they're worth it. Watch out for the midday sun.
We stayed here for 2 nights during a Bali honeymoon trip all around the island. According to our experience, the Bali Hyatt is a good hotel. However, it is for sure not among the best Bali has to offer.
On arrival at the Hyatt, we became aware that we were in the best hotel in Sanur, which made us feel like movie stars and was great as it was our Honeymoon.
