Hi all! Until now, I just have time to review the hotel I stayed in the Kuta area in my trip to Bali. It’s The Bene Hotel – a 4-star hotel in the area. This hotel is located not far from Kuta beach (very convenient to walk to the sea). In short, Kuta of Bali is a bustling area, near the sea, with many western tourists. This area concentrate a lot of hotels and resorts. So, are you planning a trip to Bali and don’t know where to stay in Bali? Let’s check out our suggested a modern 4-star hotel in Kuta area, Bali that we highly recommend you stay called: The Bene Hotel Kuta Bali (the Bene Hotel Bali, The Bene Hotel Kuta by astadala, the bene hotel in Bali). Now, let’s read our The Bene Hotel Kuta review (the Bene Hotel Bali reviews)!

Due to the area located nearby the beach, the hotel prices in this area are generally quite high. In addition, many Western tourists come here, so most hotels here are mainly built in modern Western style, not typical nature-friendly resorts of Bali. The Bene Hotel Bali is also one of them.

It must be said before that when choosing a hotel location, looking for a hotel and looking at the photos, there is nothing special about The Bene compared to the 4-star hotels I have ever experienced in Vietnam. Not to mention that seeing the vlog of a blogger, I see she compliment The Bene so much, but the images in this clip does not look good. So, I also do not hope it will create a surprise. But in fact, when I arrived, I was completely surprised because the impression in the pictures and in reality is totally differentiating!

Yeah, The Bene Hotel’s in reality is very clean, large and very modern. You can see some real pictures I’ve taken. As for the picture in the post, I use the rest of the pictures in my phone and from booking sites because the photos taken in the camera have lost with the memory card (see temporarily).

Review the room of The Bene Hotel in Bali (The Bene Hotel Kuta)

That day, I checked-in quite late when coming from Ubud. While waiting for check-in, the receptionist brings a glass of welcome drink. In the meantime, I take advantage of looking around: the reception area facing the breakfast restaurant area and adjacent to the swimming pool. The space is very large and modern. Guests here are mainly old Western guests, in the right type of vacation, enjoying old age.

The magnetic key card for my room.

After checking my booking again, they also reconfirmed that the floating breakfast service I had booked in advance and informed that breakfast would be available tomorrow at 7:00 am. After checking-in, I was led up to the room and gave a magnetic card to access the room.

The room is clean and spacious. The interior is decorated in a simple but very delicate and luxurious way. Especially, the room uses yellow lights, creating a very cozy feeling. After spent a few days to stay a nature-friendly resort, when I came here and entered this room, I felt cozy and safe. For me, traveling alone, the feeling of “being safe” is still first.

The room type I booked call the Deluxe Room

The room is equipped with a separate wardrobe, separate shoe closet, mini safe. There are both Japanese-style bath robes and fashion slippers.

In addition, the bathroom is also very spacious and clean. There is a standing bathroom with a transparent door that separates the bathroom from the hand sink area. There are towels, face towels, toiletries, and hairdryer available.

Go green and save our planet

The interesting thing that I like about this hotel in particular and many other places in Bali in general is the spirit of protecting a green and beautiful environment, saving all resources for the earth. Especially, at The Bene Hotel, you will find in each room will have a card like this, with content as follows:

You make the difference:

  • Not put this card on your bed, means: “Don’t exchange the linen”.
  • Put this card on the bed, means: “Please exchange the linen”.
  • Hanging up your towel, means: “I will use it again”.
  • A towel on the floor, means: “Please exchange”

The swimming pool of The Bene Hotel Kuta

The Bene Hotel Bali’s swimming pool is quite spacious, beautiful and very comfortable to swim some loops in the morning. On the two sides of the pool are two rows of benches that can be used for sunbathing, reading book. In the morning you should take advantage of going here early to enjoy the wonderful space with blue water, quiet surroundings, cool breeze coming. It can be said that this is a peaceful feeling that nothing can be exchanged.

Floating Breakfast – Enjoy a “floating breakfast” in the middle of the pool

The floating breakfast on the pool is a Balinese creation. It can be said that this elegant pleasure for tourists has helped the Balinese earn a lot of money. The reason for this is because they target into the hobby of taking pictures of virtual live and luxurious experiences of tourists.

The hotel also offers floating breakfast service, a specialty of Balinese people.

To experience the Floating Breakfast at The Bene Hotel Kuta or other hotels / resorts, you will also need to make a reservation so the hotel staff has time to prepare. Breakfast usually only starts around 7am, when they are done preparing.

In general, all services at The Bene make me very satisfied. However, only the Floating Breakfast, because this hotel is modern, so the floating breakfast is not stunning, magical like in the deep forest resorts of Ubud!

In addition, for those who wants to take virtual pictures with the Floating Breakfast should also pre-study the image and color of the tray to prepare a suitable clothing with the contrast color of the tray. My food tray is red and I wear a black and white checkered bikini, so they don’t match well. I will have a review of Floating Breakfast later.

The Bene Hotel Bali: The spa

In addition, The Bene also offers spa treatments in Balinese traditional style. You can ask the hotel for more information and spa packages prices.
