After watching the Dolphin show in the Melka Excelsior Hotel at Lovina, we travelled back towards Kuta in the south to check into the Ramayana Kuta Resort Bali for our second night in Bali. Enroute, we had buffet lunch at Mentari Restaurant by the Bedugul Lake, which I could appreciate better than the Padang-style lunch on day 1, though the food was kinda salty. 😛
Only 2.5 hours after lunch, did we arrive at the resort hotel. This time, the look & feel of the resort hotel was much better than the one in Lovina, at least the hotel lobby was bright and airy. See what I mean in the photos below.;)
All of us got rooms on the highest floor – level 8 & on the way to the guest rooms was the swimming pool & open-concept restaurant where we would have breakfast the next day.
The feeling this resort hotel gave me has been good up till now haha. When I got to my room, I was happy to see a spacious & brightly lit room with contemporary decor compared to the 1st hotel. At least I felt like I was really in a resort! 🙂
The 34 square-metre executive deluxe twin room has a private balcony with a view of the resort’s pools & garden. Finally there was a hairdryer in the bathroom for us! I also like the large 42″ Smart TV that came equipped with international channels. Perhaps the only grouse here would be the mattress was quite high to climb up to, but not too bad as it’s still comfortable to sleep on. 😛 Buffet breakfast the next morning was also of better standard & variety than previous hotel breakfast. 🙂
It’s no wonder Ramayana Kuta Resort is a 4-star resort hotel with many ticks compared to Melka. Furthermore, it is pretty centrally located in the Kuta Beach area, with many restaurants, shops and spas along the same stretch. The famous Kuta Beach is also just 1 street away from the hotel. Besides, complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. With all the accessibility, convenience & comfort for a relaxing holiday, I guess Ramayana is worth my recommendation. 😀
