The Sadara hotel was a clean and quiet hotel.The hotel is not very big .The rooms were clean and staff very hospitable.The food was very good.The pool was also clean and garden well maintained.We stayed for three nights and enjoyed it.
Reasonable for the low price, you get what you pay for. Our room was dark older bali style which had been revamped at some stage. It was clean overall but I suggest they remove the stool that runs along bottom of bed as it was stained & grubby, no way I would sit on it. Sadly our neighbors smoking out front (which I understand is allowed) meant walking thru that stench all the time. They also smoked ALL night their sqeaky door constantly woke us up. We were in room 130. But this would not happen to everyone.
I have just spent the last 6 days at this amazing hotel with my husband. This is the second time I have stayed in Benoa this year. When we travelled to Bali earlier this year in January we would walk past Sadar resort each morning. We stayed in a neighbouring hotel. We loved the look of Sadara so booked our trip, this time we did not bring our children. We paid the extra money and stayed in the beachside suite with plunge pool and it was well worth the extra money, the room and outdoor area were enormous, clean and lovely. I have stayed in Bali many many times over the years and this would have to be the best hotel. The staff are amazing especially Jordy that works in the pool bar. I have coeliac disease and require a strict gluten free diet and the chefs and staff made every effort to accomodate this. We were on the all inclusive package, we paid an extra $80 each per day. I'm not sure that I'd do this again next time as we are not big eaters or drinkers. The food was of a very high standard, however being on the all inclusive package we had a different menu. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if we are able to travel child free again, we would choose Sadara. Hotel not really set up for kids, more of an adults only style hotel. Thanks to all the lovely staff, you all do a wonderful job.
I had a great stay with my whole family ( 3 kids , my husband and two assistants) . Thank you so much for lovely Ms. Dayu ( GM of Sadara HOtel) who arranged our room side by side with extra bed. Really appreciated. We had so much fun at pool area, the breakfast was fantastic and friendly staff... unfortunatelly i haven't get chance to use the coupon for complementary reflexology. Almost all day, our Kids play at the pool and make castle sand on the beach. Maybe next stay..we will try . ;) Thank you so much..for the memorable holiday
Had a great stay, encountered no problems, staff all helpful and welcoming. Hotel was clean, food was very very good. Breakfast was especially nice, served to your table, not buffet, with good selection of cakes and pastries, bread, butter and jams,, then your ordered meal such as full english or American pancakes along with fruits and yoghurts, tea, coffee and fresh juice. (Table is full by the time they bring it all). Only thing to remember is the prices dont include tax or the standard service charge. It doesnt matter where you go this happens so your bill will always be higher than expected. I believe you can go All Inclusive for about £80.00 a day but we never did. Hotel was lovely, beech was lovely but the sea is full of seaweed and deffinately no good to swim in or snorkle. You get complimentary afternoon tea but we never partook in this as too busy drinking in the swim up bar which was great. Also a complimentary 15min foot massage which was also great. We never go anywhere twice so would not return but would deffinately recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing stay. There are great bars with live bands & kareoke just outside down the road if you want a fun evening.
My husband and I would like to deliver our sincere gratitude to the whole team at Sadara. Especially to Ms Detty and Mr Ananta. My husband and I had our wedding reception at Sadara on the 16th September 2017. Together with our 46 guests, we stayed at Sadara from 13th September to 17th September. Everything at Sarada was just perfect including the hotel, traveling, dining, wedding reception experience and for which we could not expect anything more! With regard to the hotel facilities. To be honest, as soon as we walked into the hotel, we were very impressed with the warm welcoming staff , the hotel view, the Balinese decoration and the massive pool and the beach. Welcome drink and cold towels were provided to every guests which was refreshing. Every guests were also offered with 20 mins free foot massage which was a bonus. The foot massage was relaxing and comfortable, my husband and I were also offered with free honeymoon spa during our stay which was just beautiful! The hotel rooms were all spacious, neat and well-maintained. Some of the facilities could be a bit out of dated because of the ages of the hotel but this didn’t bother us. In regard to the food experience at Sadara, I would like to give a 5 starts to the breakfast experience. Not like the other hotels’ buffet restaurant you usually are served with cold food, Sadara actually offers hot food with big variety of foods including, Western, Asian and Balinese options. Foods are cooked by the chef as soon as your orders are made. We tried different options every morning during our stay and all of them are delicious. Most of our guests also tried the hotel restaurant for lunches and dinners and everyone were saying the food is beautiful! We really recommend the BBQ Pork Ribs that’s our favourite! Now, talking about the best part -the wedding, I actually started planning the wedding since January 2017 and have sent inquires to several hotels at Nusa Dua areas. I was looking at somewhere can accommodate both the wedding reception dinner and the accommodations of my 46 guests. Sadara wasn’t the first one who responded to my booking inquires but Sadara was the only one who provided me with a 15 pages wedding proposal document with their reply. The document is so detailed and pretty much answered most of the questions that I was about to ask regarding the reception dinner and accommodation. I already loved the food that Sadara could offer for the reception dinner just by looking at the menus. Different options are also offered to my whole wedding & stay package and the prices are reasonable. You could tell that Sadara is very experienced just by looking at the proposal. As a result, I chose Sadara as my wedding hotel. As you can see planing a wedding in a overseas country that you have never been to and do not know anyone there could be stressful. However, Sadara has made the whole thing easy and smooth. Here, I would like to say thanks to Ms Detty the Sales Manager again. I sent more than 80 emails during January 2017 and September 2017 and Detty has always been reachable and quick with responding. Detty is also very considerable she thought about many details of the wedding that I would have missed during my planning. My husband and I also had our pre-wedding meeting with Detty and Mr Ananta the FB Manager. On the actually wedding day, Sadara provided us with a rustic style of reception dinner decoration with a massive fairy lights tent hanging above the tables and chairs. Tables were decorated with tons of flowers and candles. Sadara also provided us a huge fairy lights backdrop at the dance area. The venue was just beside the pool and facing the beach. Words can not express how beautiful the decorations were. It totally blew my minds away! Sadara also arranged a great local acoustic band and DJ to provide entertainments during the reception dinner. The acoustic band was so good the artists have great voices can sing songs in English and Chinese! The buffet food, wedding cake, drinks and alcohol provided at the reception dinner were just amazing. Our guests enjoyed every minute of the night and had such a great time! Ms Detty and Mr Ananta were there through the whole night supervising everything though the whole night and the catering team was always stand-by and ready to assist every guest! Every of my guests were saying our wedding was the best the wedding they have ever been to so far everyone felt so happy to be a part of this unforgettable memory! Everyone enjoyed every minute of their stay at Sadara and they could not wait to come back again in the near future. Without Sadara, our wedding could not be so perfect. We would like to recommend Sadara to everyone who is travelling to Nusa Dua with your loved ones, family and friends and is looking at a relaxing resort with reasonable price but beyond excellent services. If anyone is considering getting married in Bali, please consider Sadara, the highly experienced team will give you the a romantic and full of atmosphere experience and the best memory of your life! We wish Sadara all the best and we will definitively come back again! Best wishes, Jalane & Chaoms
I stayed here for two nights when I arrived in Bali. The staff were very welcoming. I was given a coupon for a complimentary reflexology foot massage also, which was amazing. Although there seemed to be mainly families and couples staying in this resort, I felt completely relaxed and comfortable as a solo guest, with the staff being very friendly, helpful, and always smiling. Breakfast was included; truffled mushrooms and hollandaise on sourdough, delicious! Would definitely recommend this place
My husband and I stayed at Sadara Boutique Beach Resort for 5 days in August to celebrate my birthday. Amazing resort, clean, peaceful, wonderful staff and excellent food. We bought an all-inclusive package from WebJet which included all meals & drinks prepaid. It was so nice to just go and order whatever we wanted and not have to worry about always paying for it. We had to select the meals and drinks from a restricted menu, not the full menu. But there were still plenty of lovely choices. I wanted to send out a thank you to the staff at the Sadara and especially Putu Tenni for her excellent customer service. Tenni is special women, friendly and made us feel like at home. We always looked forward to coming to have a meal so we could say hello to her. Her smile is amazing. I will never forgot the day I asked her about cocktail in real coconut. I never tried it before and she organised this special for me in 10 minutes although the hotel doesn’t have it in menu list. It was unforgettable when she helped my husband to get a little birthday cake on my birthday and asked the staff to sing birthday song for me. Tenni made our stay extremely pleasant. She always advised and updated on special events, programs for the following nights so thanks her we had an amazing time withing the resort. Thanks again and I will be sure to see Tenni in the future! Aelita (South Australia)
My husband and I stayed at Sadara for a week in July for our 25th wedding anniversary. Can't say enough about this fabulous place. We fell in love with it. It was smaller than most of the other hotels nearby but that was a big positive because it felt warm, cosy, friendly and relaxed - not a big name chain with hundreds of chairs in a row and all too commercialised and crowded. Lots of lovely little pockets of places to sit and relax around and near the pool, overlooking the beach. The staff were amazing too, especially Tenni. She was very friendly and made us feel special every time we came to the restaurant. We always looked forward to coming to have a meal so we could say hello to her. She always had a big smile. The other staff were also always happy to help with any request we had. Nothing was too much trouble. Everyone made our stay extremely pleasant. Even the room cleaner, who, once he realised I loved the animals he made from the white bath towels, left a different towel animal for us to discover every day. I read before we went that many people complained about how dirty the beach was and how busy the ocean was with all the watersports and that often the smell of the petrol was unpleasant. So that's what I was prepared for but I didn't have to worry. In the whole week we were there I only smelt the petrol fumes once, for ten minutes. Yes it was very busy with all sorts of watersports happening on the water in front of us, but we quite enjoyed watching the activity - and even participating in it. We had one of the three pool villas, which was absolutely lovely: beautiful room looking straight out at the beach just 10 metres from our villa, and our own little outdoor spa/pool and two outdoor loungers to soak up the ocean views in private. But to be honest, we didn't use the pool or our villa that much as we usually enjoyed sitting out in the main pool area, watching the world go by around us. So in hindsight, we paid an extra $1000 to upgrade to a villa for a week, but didn't really use its facilities to full advantage. Next time, we will probably ask for a standard room upstairs with a balcony. We bought an all-inclusive package from WebJet which included all meals and drinks prepaid. I think this worked out at about $AUS100 per day per person. But it was so nice to just go and order whatever we wanted and not have to worry about always paying for it. Mind you, we had to select the meals and drinks from a restricted menu, not the full menu. But there were still plenty of lovely choices. The only thing I was disappointed in was that most of the sun loungers/recliners on the actual sand were broken and so I couldn't adjust the back. Otherwise, we will definitely come back once we've saved enough money. We loved the place - a little touch of paradise!
We upgraded to the ocean view room which was very spacious but best of all had direct access to the beach, worth the upgrade. The staff were always friendly and helpful, assisting with any queries we had. We used a lot of the facilities, such as the free yoga class in the morning and dinner on the beach which were both amazing. The beach is okay, but in the middle of the day a sandy island appears just to the right, the sand is golden and the waters crystal clear blue, it is its own tropical island. Overall, good hotel with great service for couples who want a quiet relaxing break.
