Best pool in Kuta

Another stay at this wonderful hotel, great location and comfortable rooms. Breakfast is excellent and themed evening meals are also very good. The very large pool is excellent, although a little more shade around the pool and the pool bar would be welcomed additions.

Good Morning David, Just wanted to personally say "Thank You" for your recent review of your stay here at DIscovery Kartika Plaza. It is always nice to hear that our guests have enjoyed themselves and that we have hopefully been able to allow you to relax and create a memorable time. We will certainly take the recommendation about more shade into consideration as we begin to plan our next renovation. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Bali. Warm Regards, Jim Costa General Manager

Bali Bliss

Pros: As with my review above, the staff are what makes this hotel a pleasure to stay at and want to return to.
Cons: Just cosmetic changes in the rooms to brighten them up.
Location: Please see my review above - location is fabulous with everything you need on your doorstep.
This was a last minute booking over Easter and I couldn't have been happier with my stay. The hotel is older style but absolutely spotless with unbelievable gardens and common areas. With a location right on the beach, close to shopping, restaurants and opposite Waterbom Park, it is an ideal place for both couples and families. The hotel restaurants were wonderful with food plentiful and very tasty. The free-form swimming pool was never crowded and there was a separate 'kids' pool with lots of shade. Above all the highlight of my stay was the wonderful staff who always greeted me a with a smile and a hello. I would definitely return and would highly recommend the Discovery Kartika to anyone visiting Bali.

Been staying here many times. It is gradually becoming less attractive in many areas. If the hotel is interested enough to know what those areas are, I suggest they might like to contact me

Pros: Clean and tidy with friendly staff and secure.
Cons: Bathrooms need a makeover . The condiments at breakfast need labeling as there are quite a few and we weren’t familiar with them.
Location: Close to shopping.
We have been to Bali 6 times over the last 30 years and stayed at the Kartika for the first time this time. The location is convenient, the rooms clean and tidy though the bathroom was a little worse for wear and could do with a makeover in my opinion. All the hotel staff are very friendly and eager to help if required. The breakfast was good but certainly not to the level of the Padma. Having said that the Kartika is better value for money. I would stay there again.

Nice hotel. We are repeat customers.

Pros: Location
Cons: Spa
Location: Centro next door Matahari 200m beach walk Lipomall 150m walk
Excellent location. Great breakfast. Pools are average for children - big one is too deep and kids one too shallow for little ones to practice swimming. Staff are fantStic. Bed comfort level was average. Crib was not appropriate for 18 month old who could climb out in one second so he slept on the mattress on the floor. Spa was below average in comparison to remainder of hotel but pricing was average so maybe this is reasonable. Staff were accomodating with early check in to allow baby to sleep - until we hit crib issue. Restaurants in hotel on beach are excellent. Grounds are beautiful and spotless.

Fantastic hotel

Hard to fault what has been a top hotel in Kuta Bali for almost 30 years. Great location in the heart of Kuta, shops and restaurants on your doorstep with Kuta beach a very short walk. Beautiful gardens surround the hotel, which has one of the best and biggest pools on the island. Staff are very friendly throughout the hotel. The breakfast buffet is large and has something for everyone. We had a great holiday.
