Great Hotel - Great Prices

"On our first trip to Bali we stayed at two hotels, one in Sanur and this one in Seminyak. This was by far the better hotel and was significantly cheaper.

We got the superior rooms but that wasn't really necessary. Its good if you have a group and want to congregate in the sitting rooms to plan your days, otherwise the regular rooms are just fine.

The pool was great and there are lots of places to sit around it that are far enough away to avoid the beach hawkers becoming a nuisance.

The staff here were very friendly and I found myself at ease here and felt really safe and secure. Its close to all the amenities but far enough away to just relax as well.

Great find!

"Booked the Pelangi with and got a great rate of USD$46 plus tax inclusive of breakfast for 2. Room on the ground floor facing garden. We could not fault the place considering the price we paid. The pool was great, breakfast on the beachfront, lovely Balinese people and smiles, nice walks along the beach and up on the street to explore. We went to the famed Kudeta one night for dinner and walked home on the beach lighted by moonlight. Very nice.

We also rented a car from one of the many car rental places along the street. It was offpeak so we took the cheapest car - Suzuki Katana 1000cc! which we were offered for 100,000 rp but we bargained to 70,000 per day for 2 days rental. It was good for exploring the area, Uluwatu and Sanur. We later traded it for a better car to take us around to Ubud which we know better.

Some warning: money changers. Those with amazing rates seem to have a system to make sure you leave with less money as they would definitely make a loss. We tried 4 or 5 and they all played the same game, usually with some "friend" next to them to distract you. In the end, we just withdrew from the many ATMs everywhere.

This is our second trip to Bali, first time on Seminyak.

"Loved the Pool"

"We stayed at the Pelangi from 25/2-6/3. Would love to have stayed longer. Value for money is what this hotel is. We paid roughly $50 (aussie) for a deluxe room for 9 nights. Im sure the superior rm would have been fine although we hear otherwise. As stated in other reviews the hotel is in a great location. Not far to walk to night clubs or the beautiful Gado Gado restaraunt. Also a ten minute walk along the beach to the stunning Ku DeTa. This place is like being in another world at night. The hotel staff at the Pelangi were lovely. We had a lot of laughs with Dennix & Asra, we learn a lot about the Balinese (Hindu) culture. People on the beach can become a little annoying when you are trying to relax by the pool & they kepp yelling out "you want massage, etc etc. You do get used to this. The only main downsides to this hotel are the buffet breakfast, the food wasnt that great & not much variety. Also the pool bar isnt always staffed and on a number of occassions we had to get up to order lunch drinks. Overall for what we paid we cannot complain"

Great Value, and excellent location

"This hotel is really good value. We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids under 11) so we booked two adjoining standard rooms. The rooms were big, nice aircon and bathrooms, and good Satellite TV. The pool was excellent. The buffet breakfast that was included was good, and changed daily. The best thing was the price. I can't remember what currency I paid in now but I think it was $US and it worked out as only £48 for the two rooms inc breakfast per night. Another terrific advantage is its location. It's only 50 metres along the beach to Gado Gado, which is one of the best restaurAnts around. Only 15 mintes walk along the beach to Ku De Ta, which is one of my favourite restaurant/ bar/ clubs in the world. 20,000 rupiah would get a taxi into Kuta when we wanted to buy cheap DVDs and kids clothes. A 15 minute walk into Seminyak and we could buy stuff from the more upmarket shops. Oh and did I mention the hotel is right on the beach."

Great Spot

"Not one for booking online, but we booked through an agent for a birthday getaway. First property was terrible. After kicking up a song and dance they moved us here to the Pelangi. The position of the rooms don't get much sun, but they are very comfortable and you'll probably spend your time by the pool or beach. Hawkers will come trying to sell you stuff along the beach, but the hotel does try to steer them away.

A great relation, but not if you want peaceful and romance.

Great location

"Pelangi Bali hotel is in a great location - right on Seminyak Beach. It is only a 10-15 minute walk along the beach to the great restaurants on Seminyak beach. Great location to go for a beach swim and get a beautiful massage on the beach. The sun lounges ar ein prime position to enjoy the beach but without being hassled.

The rooms are very large with a good comfy bed. The bathroom was small, the shower head was great but it wasn't spotless. We had a ground floor room but some of the first story rooms had a balcony - perfect for a drink.

The downsides for this hotel was the pool was in the shade most of the day, the pool bar was never staffed and the breakfast was OK. The pool service and drinks wasn't great by Bali standards with beers 3x the normal Bali price.

Overall though it was great value for money and good for us as we don't laze at the hotel too much.

Love the Pelangi Hotel

"We just spent 12 days at the Pelangi and loved it. Best deal in Bali. Great loction and very friendly, accomdating staff. The restaurant was below par, but you are only a 1$ cab ride from restaruant row in Seminyak. If you like being in the middle of it all then this is the place. It is right on the beach, but only 2 rooms actually face the beach. The pool is on the beach which is were we hung out. Enjoy."

fab hotel & staff!!!

"I felt that I had to write a review after reading someone say the management were rude at the Pelangi. I spent two weeks with a girlfriend and we absolutely loved the hotel. When we were ripped off by money changers in the main street- (beware ONLY go to authorised money dealers!!!!) we went to reception to tell them about our ordeal and they immediatley called the Manager. He then got the hotel car and drove us to the shark and proceeded to get the 100$ back that we had been ripped off. The staff were fanastic but please don't take up the offer from a staff member to go to Jimbaran for dinner as it was very expensive. We really could not fault the room, the view from the breakfast table and the sunsets. For anyone who is thinking of going to Bali go it is amazing and the friendliest people you will meet. I sure you will fall in love like we have with the place. Will be back next year Lou & Tracey ( well travelled girls)"

A very clean hotel with attentive welcoming staff

"We initially booked the Pelangi for 2 nights following our long flight from the UK with a view to either spending another 7 days there or moving on. We decided to stay for 9 days at the Pelangi due to it's fabulous location directly onto Seminyak beach and because of the hotel facilites.

The hotel was friendly and the accommodation was spacious and clean. The hotel was undergoing some painting during our stay but this didn't affect us in the slightest (for those reading reports that it could do with a lick of paint!).

The infinity pool was lovely and clean albeit a bit of a perculiar shape. This is largely due to the hotel being fairly long and narrow, which does give it a bit of a cramped feel. Pool beds were very comfortable and there was always a fresh supply of pool towels.

We didn't eat our evening meals at the hotel but breakfast and lunch were fine (the milk at breakfast was especially lovely).

We agree that the internet prices are a bit high but that's only to be expected from a 3* hotel I guess.

The hotel wasn't particularly busy and thus lacked a bit of atmesphere, but this was true of Seminyak in general. For those sports/film fans out there, the big screen in the lobby bar was very useful. Customers regularly watched their own choice of films and the staff were very accommodating of choice of channels, etc.

The staff were very friendly, witty and charming and this added to our reasons for staying.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pelangi and we think it was excellent value for money (459K IDR - about £26 GBP including breakfast per night). Negotiate your rates. Highly recommended!
