No noise from the airport, surprised us that it was so peaceful.
We have just spent 7 nights at this Resort. It is the 1st time we have stayed at this resort and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quite relaxing time minus the abundance of noisy kids.
It is a 15 minute walk to Discovery Plaza and Waterbom, or a 30 minute walk to Hard Rock corner along the paved beach front walk.
The Japanese Restaurant is very highly recommended by us and the pool area is a very lazy day experience.
We avoided the Italian Restaurant after the mozzie attacks and the only so so pizza.
Breaky was only OK and the bacon overcooked and chewy as only Bali can do.
Staff, as in all Bali resorts or Hotels were very helpful and super friendly.
Try the Floating Restaurant/Cafe, food there is delicious. The suite we were in was clean and comfortable and very quite and peaceful. The grounds are a delight to walk around and photo ops are everywhere.
No noise from the airport, only at the pool area and that was an entertainment of it's own.

We, my daughter and I stayed here from 23 till 30th of april. We booked by Otel.com for an amount of 85 dollars a day, inclusive breakfast for two. At the arrival we got an upgrade. We stayed in a villa room, a big one with a bench, television, work space and a bathroom with a seperate shower and bath. All very Clean. The service was ok too.
Breakfast was a buffet with a mixture of western and indonesian food. Everyone should be able to find things he likes. It was fresh and enough. The hotel has one of the biggest pools in Kuta itself, not busy and with some entertainment for the kids. The pool itself could be better maintained, some renewal should be done. The beach is quiet, not really clean and not used very much. Everyone stays at the pool. There are some beach chairs at the beach but most of the time they are empty. Only in the evening the locals use the beach. The airport strip is close to the hotel, you can see the plains, sometimes you hear them starting but after one day you don't notice it anymore. You can walk in 25/30 minutes to Kuta centre but also take a cab, it does not cost much $ 3-5, depending on the traffic. So if you want to stay in the neighbourhood of Kute but not in Kuta itself this Hotel is good. Don' expect a nice beach but expect a great pool.

Historical Traveler Reviews Patra Jasa Bali Resort & Villas Kuta
Loved the Patra!
My husband and I stayed at the Patra Bali for 6 nights and loved every minute of it. It is a beautiful resort, the staff were so friendly and could not do enough for us. Our room was superb very spacious and cleaned every day. We did not notice the noise from the nearby airport except when out by the pool and it did not bother us at all. The pools were fantastic, very clean and the pool boys were very friendly and interesting to chat to. The restaurant was superb (we didn't go to all the restaurants in the hotel) the 4 guys who sang in the restaurant and lounge most nights were very talented. One night they sang about 10 songs for us - we were in heaven! They could harmonise beautifully.
We were particularly impressed with the breakfast each morning. It was a very large spread and egg corner was the best. Also we had a massage to die for in the spa centre - pricy but worth it!!!
We will certainly stay at the Patra again - it was a little far away from Kuta which suited us but still only 10 minutes in a taxi. We felt like royalty!!!
Good for families
My husband and I stayed at Patra Bali from 13-8-06 to 19-8-06, for our honeymoon.
1) very close to the airport, so be prepared for the noise from aircraft landing and taking-off. If you love airplanes, you will have the chance to watch many landings and taking-off!
2) nice view of the ocean.
3) it is not a walking distance to Kuta centre, so you will need a taxi.
The hotel consists of many 2-storeys buildings, well oriented and quite independent from one to another. Beautiful plants and trees surround every building. The swimming pool is up to 1.20 depth, quite convenient for children, but not for swimming.
ROOMS: Clean, well decorated and functioned. (See also PROBLEMS below ).
LOBBY: Good but not special.
STAFF: Friendly, as in the majority of Balinese hotels. Some of them, do not understand and speak well English but they try their best to help you.
BREAKFAST: Quite nice.
1.Most of the "standard" rooms have a connecting door with another room, in order to be used for 4 persons stay. We had not been informed about that and the surprice was terrible :(.
2.In addition to that, even though we had asked for a double bed room instead we were given a room with two "connected" beds!!!
After our complaints, the management gave us an acceptable room (quite bigger than the first one).
1.When you want to take a taxi to Kuta centre (Matachari Store), walk by yourselves outside the hotel. You will definitely find a taxi (prefer the Blue Bird ones). This will cost you up to 15000Rp. Otherwise, if you ask for a taxi from the hotel, it will cost you 25000Rp.
2.I would recommend the Patra Bali hotel for families with children.
3.Try the massage of the hotel. It has reasonable cost.
4.If you are a European and prefer the Mediterranean cuisine, try the Italian restaurant of the hotel.
If i have to describe Patra Bali in one word: DISGUSTING!
- dirty shower (photo)
- dirty sofa (photos)
- chocolate with ants for our honeymoon (photo)
- dirty mattresses near the swimming pool
- hotel full of loud chinese people and if you call the receptionist at 00:30 am to ask friendly if it's possible that the chinese people put there music a little less loud they answer "this is very sensitive because they are important people of the Siemens company. It will be till 02:00 am" Tourist are not important here in this hotel. They just love the business men and this hotel is plenty of it. Loud chinese people everywhere in this hotel!
- the hotel is near the airport. you can hear the flights all night long
We definitely do not recommend this hotel. There are better hotels in Bali. This was the worst vacation ever. I will not forget my honeymoon.

Great value and a good location
If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday in pleasant and comfortable surroundings, the Patra Bali is a great place to stay. If slow service bothers you, or if you need a 21st century internet connection, look elsewhere.
My partner and I spent six days at the Patra Bali in July 2006. This was not the busy season in Bali, and we got a very good price from an online booking service. We opted for a room one notch above basic, and were rewarded with a very spacious and well appointed suite. It consisted of a large living and dining room area, a separate bedroom, each room with its own television set and separate (and very efficient) air conditioning system. The magnificent bathroom contained a sumptuous tub, separate shower stall, and was supplied with more little boxes of goodies than I have ever seen in a hotel room.
The location of the hotel has advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, it is located on ocean and faces west, and the views of the sunset from the pool area are spectacular. It's also a short ride from the airport and the ghastly and tacky town of Kuta, but there are no shops or outside restaurants within convenient walking distance. Be warned, though, that although the hotel has a great pool, there is no beach in front of the hotel, just a concrete breakwater (there is a beach about a five minute walk away.) And bear in mind that the hotel is located adjacent to Bali's surprisingly busy international airport. Planes don't fly over the hotel, but you will hear them taking off and landing.
Unfortunately, the levels of service at the Patra Bali are not of the same excellent standard as the physical facilities. We ate several times in the hotel restaurants, and found the service, although friendly and well intentioned, to be slow and inattentive. Be prepared for a 35 - 45 minute wait for your meal to arrive, and don't expect a waiter to offer to refill your coffee. (There is also no separate non-smoking area.)
In short, this is a good hotel with a great location and magnificent facilities. The minor inefficiencies shouldn't bother anyone with a little patience and some time to spare. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Das Hotel nicht nur für Honeymooner, just for relaxing !!!!!!
Wir buchten für 9 Nächte. Und es war so, wie es auf deren Homepage beschrieben war. Es ist ein sehr schönes Resort, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das weiträumige Anwesen ist nicht so eng gebaut und voll gepackt wie in vielen anderen, die wir uns dann angeschaut haben. Es sind einzelne Bungalows mit jeweils maximal 6 Zimmern. Wir hatten eine Deluxe Suite im Obergeschoss mit einem Wohnzimmer und einem Schlafzimmer und 2 Balkons, sehr zu empfehlen, der Aufpreis zum Standardzimmer ist es wert.
Das Hotel ist zwar in der Nähe des Flughafens, aber Störungen waren eher maginal.
Das Hotel selbst liegt in Tuban. Kuta und Legian, wo eher was abgeht (Shopping, Bars und Restaurants) liegen in Schlagweite zu Fuss über die schöne Beach oder per Taxi (13000 Rp.= 1,30 Euro). Es ist zwar ein wenig abseits des Hypes, aber dafür hat man seine Ruhe vor den eher Malle-artigen Touri-Bezirken weiter im Zentrum von Kuta. Was für die Deutschen der Ballermann scheint in Kuta-Center das eher für die Australier zu sein.
Insgesamt ein sehr positiver Gesamteindruck. Das Frühstücksbuffet war reichlich und gut. Essen würde ich eher draussen empfehlen, da preiswerter und besser (orginaler und grössere Portionen).
Die Leute waren immer sehr hilfreich und nett, manchmal ein wenig langsam, halt indonesisch jalan-jalan, nicht böse gemeint, bin ja selbst indo-chinesischer Abstammung.
Die Zeit verging im Flug, es wird nicht das letzte mal Bali sein, for sure !!!!!!!!
Prädikat: empfehlenswert, wer auf Trubel und non-stop Party verzichten kann und just relaxen will. Wie gesagt, Taxis sind preiswert und das Personal hilft einem auch bei der Planung von Ausflügen (Handeln !!!!).
An Excellent Choice for a Stay in Bali
Overall, is an excellent choice for a holiday in Bali. My wife and I have just returned from a 6 night stay at the Patra. Beautiful.
1. An excellently landscaped low rise resort on a vast area. On the Sea, Next to the Airport. No disturbance, however.
2. A variety of impecable accomodation. Deluxe Rooms for couples, Deluxe suites have an additional living room. A range of Villas is good for a splurge.
3. Three nice Pools, Two of them Large lagoon type, all Sea facing. Adequate Loungers, Umbrellas.
4. Good Bars. A variety of restaurants (see comment).
5. Very Friendly, Polite and Helpful Staff.
6. Near the most popular areas of Bali but still secluded.
1. The 'Beach' is non existent. a small pebbly strech. However, Kuta Beach a short walk along the shore, 5-8 minutes.
2. The Restaurants do not offer much menu variety or value. The Breakfast Buffet while adequate in terms of variety, is unchanging and is boring for someone staying over 3 nights. Ideally one should only have Breakfast at the Resort and go out for a range of better meal choices available in Kuta/Legian? Seminyak/Jimbaran areas.
Summing up it can be said that it is arguably one of the 'Best Value' resorts in Bali, 4 - 5 star standards, if only they could upgrade their Food it would be absolutely unbeatable.
Incidentally (sadly), the Best rates are not available through 'Tripadvisor', considerable research showed that the 'Hotel Club' site had the best offers. they are reliable.
Love the Patra, will stay there again!!!
Spent 3 nites in April 06 in a deluxe suite (free upgrade via Qantas Holidays package). The suite was HUGE!! Rooms were clean and bathrooms massive. Cost was AU$82 PER NIGHT and represents fantasic value for money. There are 3 pools (one being an infinity pool). Food was reasonable. The only downside of the resort was it was a little isolated. Was right next to the airport (free transfers included along with breakfast) but there was no issue re noise (very surprised by this!!). Whilst is a little isolated, taxis are cheap and only costs approx IDR35000 to Seminyak. Will stay here again definitely. A great place!
Brilliant stay in the Patra Bali
We stopped for 5 nights in the Patra Bali in Kuta and wished we could have stopped longer.
Our room was beautiful with a four poster bed and jacuzzi bath!
Included with the fantastic price we got our breakfast. However, the hotel was so nice we did eat at the Italian Restaurant (next to the pool) and watched the Balinese famous pink sunset. A bus is provided to allow you to get todowntown Kuta if you want to be at the hub of the place!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone as the hotel itself was clean and pretty and all the staff very eager to help out.
The former Pertamina Cottages, this beachfront location has the best resort look I've seen in Kuta - you know, that "pool-in-the-foreground with palm trees looking out to the beach" look.
The colourful children's club was fun for our kids because it was well supervised with an ocean outlook. We loved it and so did they.
And when you're ready to leave, the airport's only a coconut-throw away.

Our last day in Bali so we wandered down to Discovery Plaza along the 15 minute paved beach front walk to stock up on toiletries. The chemist shops have all the deodorant, soaps, toothpaste and everything else at a lower rate than OZ so we stock up on these things while there.
Laurence lashed out and bought some sketchers to go with all …
Entry title is a bit dramatic, but what the hey.
It was an early start for Laurence and I with a breaky of sunny side up eggs with bacon and toast with lots of coffee for me.
Left the hotel at 07;30 in the little 8 seater with 2 already on board from Nusa Dua. Long drive out to Ubud to pick up another couple who have been married for 7 …
The morning as per usual. In for breaky and then back to the room to prep for the cooking class.
Our pick-up was at 10:45 so we had a long drive in the hectic peak hour traffic to get there and we were the last to arrive.
There were 6 others doing the course as well. All seemed to be nice people. Still can not remember there names?
We spent the entire morning and most of the afternoon by the pool.
Once I had enough of the pool, Laurence and I walked up to Lippo mall for a look around and found the Sketchers shop and then walked back to the Resort on the back roads for a change.
Had enough of the pool and returned to room for clean-up and then we headed to …
... other guests were great. We all ate at our place and the chef was amazing. We went paddle boarding everyday and surf 24/7.
Bedtime is early, at about 8pm because of the Bali blackout (power cuts) with the sound of the sea in your ears. When it rained at night you got drenched in bed as it came through the straw roof and through the open sides. No windows! We got up at six o'clock every morning and chilled.
