Up until this visit, I hadn’t been to Bali before, yet it was always on my list of places to visit. It was my first time travelling there and when Aryaduta Bali, a five star hotel in South Kuta reached out to me, I knew I had to make it happen.

The hotel is only 10 minutes from Bali airport, super close to Kuta Beach, with great shopping nearby and just minutes from Waterbom Park. From start to finish, my hotel experience was nothing short of superb. I was picked up at the airport and driven to the hotel.

I was greeted by the most amazing, beautiful staff who were all smiles with gentle spirits, lovely traits I’d heard prior about the Balinese people. Yos, the Duty Manager, greeted me upon entering the hotel, and basically the amazing service became apparent even before I got to check in. The check in process was smooth and relaxing, the type of way you want your holidays to begin. 
I was treated to an immaculate Deluxe Premier Room, featuring a large balcony and an oversized bathroom fit for a king, including a rainfall shower and double sinks. The room was amazing and had more than everything I needed, yet with plenty of space to relax and unwind.

The hotel is decorated with unending, beautiful interior styling and details. Each corner and area was a visual pleasure.

Traditional Balinese paintings and wall art dress the walkway into and throughout the hotel, which is also connected to a restaurant ‘Henry’s Grill & Bar’ a gym and with access to relaxing traditional spa treatments. The restaurant and the bar is where I ate my meals, which were so delicious that I had no need to find places to eat elsewhere. Believe it or not, the restaurant is a mix of Australian & New Zealand barbecue, and features a sports lounge on the upper level.

The lovely Alyssa from Aryaduta Bali met me for breakfast one morning and we had a great chat about all things Bali, and on all of the wonderful things I hadn’t yet discovered about the hotel. 

Now, of course I have to mention the beautiful pools. Firstly there is a giant pool area set amongst the lush gardens. This area feels like a traditional Balinese oasis and features cabanas with beautiful white curtains for optional privacy. Then you have a modern, fashion forward Rooftop pool and bar (on the rooftop) for the luxury lover, in an all white setting and drenched in sunshine. You’ll have trouble choosing a favourite and will end up spending plenty of time in both. 

I definitely recommend this beautiful hotel for every reason possible, and it’s worth mentioning that you can even hold your function here, such as a wedding or private event.

Aryaduta Bali is without question one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed in. From the staff and their brilliant customer service, to the food, the amenities and the ambience, it really was the prefect stay and I would like to thank the team there for making it such a memorable experience. I am thoroughly anticipating another visit in the near future.
