We had good service at the hotel. Some areas need a bit of maintenance but all over good stay. Nice pool and pool bar. Good views from the pool to beach. We only had breakfast at the hotel and that was great. Other guests said the dinners were also very good. Not to badly located but its a bit of a walk to get to main areas of Seminyak.
The place is completely overpriced. And breakfast isn’t ‘free’, you’re paying for it in the total amount. From the moment we arrived we felt uncomfortable. The staff were not perceptive to our needs (exhausted from travel and wanted to get to our room) - they insisted on a long drawn out shpeel about everything. We sat at the bar and had a drink while we waited for the room. The bartender got our order wrong, which happens no big deal.. but when we asked to have it changed he retorted “you pay more then,” which we did not like at all. Not appropriate treatment for how expensive it is. My husband got sick while we were at the hotel. I can’t say for sure it was their food, but we had to visit the sos clinic while there. And had to stay another night and pay for it so he could recover. The doctor said bacterial which means food or other people. The breakfast was a joke. Fried noodles, rice and French toast has got to be the oddest combination I’ve ever seen. I could get on board with it had it not tasted so awful. Flies in the fruit and nothing special. Our stay came to about £80/ night. I think £20 would have been appropriate for what we got. Would not stay here again even if it was free.
I decided to go away for Christmas on my own and after a little research I decided on Pelangi. The pics looked great and the reviews were quite good so I paid the beachside premium to stay at Pelangi. The overall hotel is dated. The rooms were small and faced each other rather than the beach. The rooms also had no direct sunlight which made that the smell of damp, was at times, overbearing. I found the rooms also lacked insulation and the noises from people coming and going at all hours were completely audible and disturbing. Breakfast was ok although having the only pool in front of the restaurant I found awkward for me. I don’t like the idea of people seeing me in my swimmers while eating their breakfast. It is not the sort of place that you can hang out at for a day. The common areas are not comfortable but the location is fantastically close the the beach and the main strip. Finally, the bell boys clearly had some sort of side business going and I felt a little pestered each time I left the hotel to allow them to hire a car for me which they would drive and I would pay for. It was off putting. I would return only if it was extremely cheap. Happy travels!
So I have to admit I am a little biased because of the last-minute price paid at this hotel the day before NYE ($111.00 USD) which may not reflect how much it usually should go for, By my estimation...about $60 USD per night is about right. If you go in expecting a $60/night hotel then I think you will be pleased. One word...”cheesy.” This hotel is weird in that there are basement floors which although are on the pool level, are oddly designed, depressing, and poorly lit compared to so many of the other nearby hotels that are at least modern, very nice for the same price and are designed beautifully. Also did not like the unusual rules, for example there is a charge for losing the plastic card room key which makes no sense since as it costs the hotel nothing to decativate and replace. Also, guests must leave their ID at the front desk which seems invasive. The poolside bar is unusually expensive for the menu...pretty much garbage bar food, poor selection with prices that are not typical of Bali. Aside from that the sevice is “attentive” and invasive. I suspect there are other things going n at this hotel which have caused the staff to “pay more attention.” Overall, as a frequent business and leisure traveler in 4-5 star ranked hotels around the world I was surprised at the price charged for the experience. Final thoughts...I would not stay here again and would not recommend it to others. This place seriously needs a remodel or at minimum should lower its prices or offer somethng really special to make up for its several shortcomings.
The beach was literally at the doorstep of the hotel. It was very convenient to swim at the beach and then cleaned up at the hotel’s shower. The staffs were very friendly and chatty. We got best value, as they did not charge our extra bed.
This hotel has lots of character in traditional Balinese style, the hotel is quite old but is well kept and maintained, with beautiful gardens and a really nice pool. The rooms are really clean and spacious with comfortable beds. We were stuck in Bali late November 2017 due the volcano activity and this hotel gave us a free night stay and free breakfast which helped us out until the airport reopened. Thanks Pelangi Hotel
There are many good things with this hotel. The location is good if you need to be in Seminyak, the staff is friendly, pool is nice and the hotel restaurant is really good. The rate is decent. Time has taken it's toll on the venue, it would need some upgrading. The rooms are ok, not as big as advertised, we upgraded for a fee to de luxe because wee needed more space. The normal (superior) is ok but when you carry stuff for many weeks things simply did not fit into the closets. Hence only 3 stars, even if the staff and location would deserve a 4th. If I would come to Seminyak (doubt it) I could stay again. But the double six beach is not swim friendly and fills with debris after every high tide. So I preferred the pool area.
Lovely place room was very comfortable, friendly staff and we the restaurant was also very good with reasonable prices. I loved that we could walk out the back to the beach and close to the little shops. Also there’s a great yoga studio within walking distance.
We booked 4 hotel rooms for 4 couples. We chose the hotel because of good reviews, amazing photos and proximity to the beach. However we were quite disappointed with the hotel overall. The best thing about the hotel is it’s location. Another positive thing was they organised complimentary cake for birthday however there were several flaws. The hotel looks quite old. The rooms are average (small) but the toilet/shower is substandard - quite old and needs renovation. There is no view from the room - in fact all rooms face towards each other so there is no privacy if you keep the curtains open. The clocks in the lobby were showing wrong time and it wasn’t changed even when we informed the hotel staff about it. Breakfast was ok -nothing special. They don’t even serve coconut water at the hotel. Who doesn’t serve coconut water at a beach hotel! Overall it’s more like a budget hotel, not worth the money, pictures on the internet are quite deceiving - the hotel looks very different in reality. I will only recommend for location.
In January 2017 my family and I booked 3 x Units here for 6 nights. We arrived 2 nights ago. We checked OUT, TODAY. Our unit was creeping with mould in the bathroom. The bed linen had not been changed for weeks and stunk. Renovations were happening in 10 of the units on a 12 hour a day basis within 20 feet our our unit. We were NEVER informed of any restoration work being done in the Resort, not even at check in........ The buffet breakfast (although included in the nightly rate) was inedible to most of us. The Sunset Bar, a brochure feature of the Resort, was closed without explanation. The pool umbrellas were closed up by staff & taken away at any hint of rain (which considering it is wet season was daily at 2pm). The whole Resort, incl the rooms, is in desperate need of a massive Spring Clean and the pathways around the Resort and Entry Driveway need pressure washing to get rid of mould and years of dirt and grime. My wife and I own and manage a Holiday Resort in Queensland, Australia and provide above and beyond accommodations to the guests at our Resort. This is our job. We thrive on the positive reviews our guests are constantly posting on this site. Considering we were being charged the equivalent of what it would cost to holiday at a waterfront establishment on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, without the cost of the airfares, you can imagine how disappointed we are having to find an alternative accommodation after just 2 nights in this disappointment of a Resort. SEMINYAK Beach: Again, such a disappointing experience given what we have told by so many over the last few months. The Beach is the Island's dumping ground. Every item of trash ends up on the beach & in the ocean. We walked a 100 metres along the beach & vowed never to return to it. Disgusting and horrendous are the only 2 words I can offer. PLEASE READERS, Reconsider your holiday choices and travel to a location where you will bring home good memories, happy experiences and no health threatening issues or lasting infections.
