Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We have stayed here numerous times. The hotel is in a perfect location with the beach and close proximity to shopping and restaurants. The hotel itself has a plentiful breakfast to suit everyone's taste buds and a lovely piano man to set the morning mood. Swimming pool is large (take note also very deep) with plenty of layabouts - we travelled with a group of 6 and were always successful to get seats together. A wonderful hotel which we shall return to again.

We chose the Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel to celebrate my recent birthday. We have been to Bali numerous times over the years and have stayed at quite a few different 5 star hotels/resorts. However, the DKPH has always stood out and became our favourite hotel! It's such a beautiful resort and we always feel so relaxed as soon as we check in. ALL the staff, from housekeeping right up to the top executive chef, are extremely courteous and offer excellent customer service which results in all the guests having a truly relaxing, amazing holiday!

This hotel provides you with a genuine Balinese feeling. It is open and large however unassuming. The staff are probably its finest point, they never stop trying to please & are genuinely helpful. As with other reviews I read breakfast is well run & you never wait for a table that being said its a shame all guests are not blessed with basic manners. The pool area is lovely and menu service is available and reasonable in price, we always got a bed. My only drawback is the bathrooms show the hotels age but that worried me less as the rooms were well cleaned and presented like someone cleaning them cared. We chose this hotel due to being close to Waterbom Park but it is a very good location full-stop.

We wanted to be near airport , booked Kartika then found it was so near Horrible Kuta . It is a large resort lots of guests but ended up a quiet haven with out Kutaism . Staff were excellent ,service was 1st class . Restaurants on site were competitive with nearby and with resort discounts often cheaper . loved the breakfasts and tepan noodles food for dinner around $20 for 2 rooms ok ,water not a real problem with minimart over road with 3 litre for $ 3 . pool great but some towels on seats at 8.00 am not used until 2-3 pm . pool boys need to move these selfish one on . smoking around and in the pool was a problem . The hotel push for reviews which may bias ranking ..

Excellent location in Kuta. Lots of services for tourists. Relatively isolated from the rest of the city, but access is easy. Beach area is well-connected to other resorts and restaurants. Restaurants on site are excellent and accommodating.

I have stayed here many times, it is the best hotel I have stayed at, the location is excellent, with the gardens, and pool area well away from the busy street at the front, the rooms are large, and clean, and the staff are friendly, and helpful, and the breakfast is excellent.

The Kartika is in a great location you can walk to all you need and the Resort Staff and Management go out of their way to serve you as best they can. The rooms are good size with and all facilities are excellent. In house Restaurants are good value and serve good food. A fun place to stay and 5 star.

Very good and clean hotel, good location near shopping mall. Quiet, beautiful garden and in front of the beach. Staff very helpful. Exellent food. Very good place to stay, not far from the airport and good location for excursions.

Spent two nights in this hotel as I was attending a conference there. The moment I stepped into its lobby I could tell that age was creeping on this hotel.The room and the furnitures are not much different. Although it claimed to be 'on-the beach',this was technically not true as there was merely a small stretch on man-made 'beach'(I call it sand) that was no bigger than half a tennis court. I had breakfast and dinner at its d'Pond main dining which was of 3-star hotel quality. For the above,the room rates start from 160USD!!! I plan to join the same conference next year and I hope the organizers will change the venue.

My visit this time is to deliver a training, and I and my colleague encounter lovely experience. The crew of the hotel treat us nicely. Have a friendly check-in experience and the foods during the breakfast are awesome. Unfortunately, we haven't tried the oxtail soup while we just found that the dish is the signatory dish that the hotel serves, on the last evening of our visit.
