Grand Istana Rama Kuta Reviews
Favourite Place to stay in Bali Jul 31, 2011
I have stayed at the Grand Istana Rama twice on two different trips to Bali in 2011. The location is ideal - just across from the beach and within walking distance to all the best bars/clubs/cafes and shops.
The hotel attracts a very easy-going and friendly crowd. Some families and a lot of young people from all around the world. The bathrooms are fantastic and have ample hot water for showering - but be sure to now drink any tap water as complimentary water is given each morning for drinking instead.
The pool bar is a great place to waste sunny afternoons, sipping on cocktails that are about the 80,000rp mark. Even though this isn't particularly cheap, it's convenient and a great atmosphere to just relax or work on that tan.
My girlfriends and I always manage to make friends at this hotel as the atmosphere is very welcoming and the staff are fantastic to deal with - always going above and beyond to ensure that their guests are happy.
The hotel also has wifi in each room, which can be a bit twitchy but is ok for checking email and for checking out what places to go to around Bali.
I'll definitely be returning a 3rd time sometime in the future.
