“A small beautiful place to stay in Kuta”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

We stayed at The Sandi Phala's pool suite for two nights. A beautiful place, nicely decorated room with beautiful garden dan beach at the back side of the hotel, which is very close to the airport. Ma Joly, the restaurant where we have breakfast in the morning, is the best place to enjoy the beach view in the morning. Though the hotel provide a la carte breakfast, additional cup of coffee or fresh fruit juice means additional expenses that is considered quite expensive.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. We were very impressed with their hospitality upon our arrival. The welcome cocktail was delicious,

The room and bathroom is nicely decorated. L'Occitane amenities and complimentary minibar makes it different from standard 5 star hotels. The only drawback is the dim lit bathroom with its black stone floor makes it look dark. My kids did not dare to go in the bathroom alone. Overall we had a memorable stay there and would definitely go back in the future.

Our trip to Bali in the first week of July was our first and meant to celebrate the 4th anniversary of our wedding on the 7th.

Sandi Phala was recommended to us by our travel agent UOB Travel in Singapore as being near to but yet away from the maddening crowd on Kuta beach.

How true it was! The small boutique hotel which has only 11 suites has a beachfront which was free of crowd and the view of the sea from the restaurant terrace, especially at sunset was really lovely. So lovely that the hotel offers for rental a special tent which could set up on the beach to host special event. We had wanted to rent it for our anniversary dinner on the 7th but unfortunately it was already booked for a wedding function, so we simply made a It wreservation at the hotel restaurant Majoly.

On that evening when we came to the restaurant, the wedding function was already in full swing with a band in accompaniment. When we were shown our table, it was beautifully decked with decoration and petals of flowers as though it was the wedding table. The food and service were of course excellent, but what was really great was the surprise cake which they had specially prepared and brought out at the end of the meal. As we had fully filled our tummy with the excellent 3 course dinner and Bali-Australia wine, there was no more room for the cake and we had to have it packed for our return trip to Singapore that night.

It was a most memorable stay: the very comfortable room, the wonderful view and ambience, and the attentive and excellent service together with the beautiful weather at this time of the year made such an impression on us that we are sure to be back again the Sandi Phala.

Kudos to Anes and his team at the Sandi Phala!!!

Stayed here for two nights end April, beautiful little hotel with nice staff. Nice garden, bar and pool. The room was nice decorated and cosy, there is no desk/table in the room. Unfortunately our bathroom had a strong moldy odor which would have made a bath unenjoyable.
Next door is the restaurant Ma Joly which is fantastic for a sunset drink, but the food is rather expensive and not worth the money. This is also the place where you take the breakfast a la card, disappointing indeed was that you only get one coffee, a refill is charged extra, same for the juice!! Free internet, but slow.

This hotel is as complete as it gets;
1. The staff is incredibly kind, without being even the slightest big fake. From the waiters until the managers.
2. The accommodations are spotless and perfectly decorated.
3. The food and drinks are delicious. The best cocktails we've ever had and the best food we've had had served.
4. The location of the hotel is incredible as well. Having breakfast with an unspoiled ocean view - wow.

As a reviewer I have never ever seen such a flawless, immaculate hotel.

Not much more to say than this was the nicest hotel we ever stayed at ...it's like the dream of the perfect holiday come true ... just wonderful! extreamly friendly staff, a free full mini bar, super nice afternoon coffee with nicely arranged little pastries, delicious welcome cocktail, a poll boy that just waits for you to show up at the pool to bring you fresh towels and cold water, always fresh fruit and the best smelling shampoo and conditioner in the room, transport within an 6 km radius - all included in the price. JUST PERFECT!

This hotel is small yet gives a very homely feeling. I had a great holiday there as the environment is nice, very relaxing. All the staffs are friendly, I feel their geninue friendliness and their value for guests. I would say that their service are better than some big hotel chains.

Great room with thoughful act of helping to lit mosquito coil at your doorsteps. A great place for holiday be it is the room, environment. My husband and I love it a lot.
