Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort
Travel Blogs from Tabanan
Monday 10th June
Had arranged for our driver Made to pick us up at the airport and then go thru Kuta to pick up Tara and Scott for our trip to Nirwana, Tanah Lot. We used Made again as he had driven us around about 5 weeks earlier when I was here with the golfers.
As we departed from the terminal we looked for our name on the …
Pünktlich holt uns unser Fahrer Wayan mit seinem Mini-Van am Hotel ab. Wir besprechen mit ihm unsere Routenwünsche, er ist total flexibel und wir einigen uns auch gleich.
Die erste Strecke führt uns aus Ubud raus bis zum Tempel Pura Taman Ayun in Mengwi.
Übersetzt bedeutet das "Tempel des schwimmenden Gartens" und diesen Namen trägt …
We reserved a week at the now Pan Pacific (not Le Meridien) Nirwana resort almost a year before we checked in through our timeshare. We were excited to stay somewhere so nice since most of our trip (except the week in the Vills) would be spent in budget accommodations, but that excitement quickly started to wear off as our driver spent 15 min …
Today we went into Kuta again to pick up our clothes from Yogi and get our tattoos. It was so hot we shins were sweating! Is that even possible?! I really don't think I've ever experienced anything like today's heat/humidity. Ron's tattoo took a solid 4 hours, but looks amazing. His artist, Ruddy, has just moved to Bali from Java and Ron was his …
Today we went into Kuta for some shopping. The driver missed our stop at Plaza Bali so we took it as a sign that we would look for a tailor in Kuta centre and not meet the "friend" of our guide's. What we saw of Kuta is much nicer than Benoa, but so crowded and noisy. The beach was much quieter than I was expecting, but the mounds of rotting …
How has this resort rated in the past?
This Hotel and golf course just keeps getting better everytime we visit. Had 4 wonderful days playing golf, lazing around the pool and making use of the restaurants.
Once on site you are basically captive at the resort but ideal location to either play golf or just chill out.

This is the place to stay for anyone that wants a bloody good holiday, but isn't bothered for a beach. The location is out of the way, but you get the impression you're in Bali, as opposed to staying in the tourist traps of Kuta and the commercialised purpose-built hotel zone that is Nusa Dua (we stayed at the Grand Hyatt there for one night - awful!).
You won't want to leave.
Overall very good hotel. The swimming pool is very nice and big and with fun water slides, even for adults. Food (whether it's bkfst, dinner or snacks by the pool) was great. We had a Cultural Night Dinner at the outdoor amphitheater with balinese dance and set dinner at US$30/person. The complimentary spa treatments we received from the package was so so, probably because the staff was in a hurry to go home. The second massage by the pool side was great.
We just returned from a may break which we thoroughly enjoyed at this very relaxing hotel in a beautiful setting with splendid views of the Tanah Lot temple.
Just came back on 30th March too. Had a lovelly time. We had a 2 bed villa and took the kids and my mum. The villa was huge. Only thing would say if taking very young children who won't have an adult sharing with them the bedrooms are not adjoining there is a garden between them within the villa walls. The pools at the hotel are brilliant probably the best I have ever seen with fast slides which adults enjoy as much as kids. The food in the pool grill and Nirwana restaurants is excellent, the others are OK. If you've not got children the one bed villas would be very romantic. The villa was very affordable as we managed to haggle the tour operator down quite a bit. The resort covers acres of grounds and the views are fantastic. Swimming in the sea is not possible due to dangerous currents. You feel very much part of the culture as there are a number of in use temples within the grounds and locals come and pray at them. The security at the hotel is very good and we felt very safe. The spa treatments were very good especially the massages but the treatment rooms looked a bit dated. We got loads of free massages because we stayed 3 weeks and a free meal.
I was a bit worried about the hotel before we got there, as it was part of a package deal, and I'm not usually one to buy packages...but fears were quenched upon arrival. Stayed in a standard garden-view room, and it was lovely! Nice size, elegantly furnished, very strong waterpressure in the shower, strong AC, kept spotless by twice daily maid service. Service overall was very good - attentive, very friendly, but not obtrusive. The grounds are beautiful; the pools are fabulous - the larger water slide is very fun. Breakfast is great - big selection of western and local fare, and fresh fruits & juices; plus there are lots of pretty birds and fish hanging around that area (cendana grill). The view of Tanah Lot is great (and only a 10-minute walk away). Hotel staff were great for getting drivers and taxis for us - that's the one con - it's at least a 30-minute drive from anywhere - but....it's a nice drive, so we didn't mind. Would definitely go back.
Best hotel i have ever stayed at
This is without doubt the best hotel i have ever stayed in. We have stayed in five star hotels throughout the world and none can beat this place. The hotel room was fabulous and the staff incredibly friendly. You have no problem getting a lounger around the pool because the staff give out the towels and when the loungers are empty they remove the towels. The staff wait on you whilst you sunbathe so you dont have the trouble of moving to get anything you may need. There is no beach at the hotel although you can walk to tannah lot where there is a beach or hire a taxi into kuta and use the beach there.
A Remote Get Away with great golf course
My wife and I spent three days at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel was a bit off the beaten track but if you just want to get away from it all, this is a great spot to do it. If you are a golfer, even better. The course attached to the hotel is one of the best in Asia. We stayed in one of the Garden facing rooms, which was very nice. The villas on the golf course look great. All in all highly recommended and great value
Superb Bali Sunset
Much cheaper than the hotels in Nusa Dua or Denpasar, Le Meridien is a fantastic hotel.
Located minutes away from the Tanah Lot temple, it is only 35 minutes away from the airport. You can take a free shuttle bus to Ubud or Kuta several times a week.
The buffet breakfast is huge, all the restaurants offer great quality and choice. Rooms are clean. And the pools are great for children adults.
Will be back
My family and I stayed at one of the villas. It had views of the ocean and golf course, was extremely well-maintained, had a beautiful out-door shower, outdoor plunge pool which the kids loved and a spacious dining area outside (complete with bale) where we had dinner with our friends. All-in, an absolutely wonderful villa (though the hotel rooms are normal). The resort has a wonderful golf course according to my husband with many holes having superb sea views; they have bales fronting the parameters of the resort where you can just lie and gaze at the ocean; and is within walking distance of the famous Tanah Lot temple.
