The Bali Garden Beach Resort is in an ideal location and that's one thing that attracted me to this resort. It's right in the heart of Kuta only a short 5 minute walk to Kuta beach. There is also a whole host of other common tourist attractions within close proximity to the resort.
Right out the front of the resort, I already had the feeling that this resort has a cultural Balinese design throughout. I took this picture right before walking up the stairs into the lobby area.
This is inside the lobby which is quite a large spread out area. I found that the resort has a mix of Balinese and modern western style design.
As soon as I arrived to the reception area here, there was a happy and friendly Balinese staff member happy to help me. The staff here were very friendly and made me feel comfortable and relaxed the whole entire time.
I took a couple more pictures of the lobby area to show a bit more about what it's like in here. From here I was looking behind me from the reception area above.
From here I was standing a bit further away from the reception area. There's usually several different staff available to attend to guests anytime.
This is another section of the lobby. There is lots of places for guests to sit down and relax down here.
As I mentioned above, the resort has a mixture of Balinese and modern western style as seen here. This section here leads up to where some of the rooms are located. The Bali Garden Beach Resort is quite luxurious for a 4 star resort compared to other places I've seen in the same class, that's for sure.
This is in the room I was staying in and I felt really pleased the moment I first walked in here.
Here is another picture I took of the room from a different angle showing how spacious it is. There is also a decent sized balcony overlooking some of the beautifully landscaped gardens all throughout the grounds of the resort.
The room has Balinese wooden decor and artworks which gives it a real homely atmosphere. I felt like I was staying in my own apartment rather than a hotel room.
This particular room had 2 mirrors which is perfect for couples. The flat screen TV mounted on the wall has Cable / Satellite too which is ideal.
This is inside the bathroom. I felt it was very neat, tidy and well looked after when I first came in here. I quite like the marble benchtops in here as I felt that it provides an element of class and style.
The rooms are cleaned daily by housecleaning with complimentary toiletries supplied in the bathroom. During my stay at the Bali Garden Beach Resort I was always in a nice clean fresh room.
This is the shower area which was also just as clean and tidy as the rest of the bathroom.
When I first walked out on the balcony as from this picture below, I could now see some of the nice gardens everywhere I looked. It felt so peaceful and restful sitting on this nice spacious balcony looking over the gardens. I enjoyed sitting out here often.
This is the swimming pool available for guests of the Bali Garden Beach Resort.
After walking past the pool a little bit down from the picture above, this is another angle of the pool area. There are plenty of deck chairs around for people to sit back and relax.
In the background of this picture below is the ocean. It's only a very short walk to get to Kuta beach from here which I really like.
There is a swim up bar in the swimming pool which is great for those really hot days when relaxing in the pool is the best place to be.
This is the restaurant & bar area of the Bali Garden Beach resort. It's a really nice place to come for dinner with a great selection of dishes on the menu. Also a great place to just sit back and have a couple of drinks.
There is an outdoor area too where guests can enjoy their meals sitting out here.
After being here a little while and walking around to different areas, I now understood more so why it's called the Bali Garden Beach Resort. The whole place is surrounded by well landscaped lush green gardens.
In this picture, I was walking through some of the pathways around the resort and this is the scenery I had the pleasure of seeing.
Another part of the resort grounds shows more beautiful gardens with pathways for guests to peacefully walk around everywhere.
It seemed to be almost everywhere I walked I was surrounded by lush green lawns and gardens.
The resort also has some cultural Balinese elements positioned around the grounds. Here is some stone carvings I found during one of my walks around the gardens.
I noticed some waterways around the resort. This gave it a real pleasant and peaceful atmosphere.
After being a guest here only a short time I felt like I was friends with the staff. I asked them for a picture below and they were more than happy to let me take one.
After my experience at the Bali Garden Beach Resort, I was very impressed with not only the standard of service but also the quality of the hotel and facilities available here. For a 4 star resort it really is a great place to stay and I felt very well looked after for my time here.
I have stayed in various other 4 star hotels not only around Bali but other locations too. The Bali Garden Beach Resort is certainly one of the better 4 star establishments I've stayed in for quite some time.
