Grand Istana Rama best property on Kuta Beach, staff are AMAZING ”

I stayed at 4 other properties in Bali. First time in Bali, coming from Canada. I only left the Grand Istana Rama because I was going to Ubud but wow do I ever regret it. These guys are amazing, accommodating, friendly, they actually try to help you and they are extremely efficient. What a difference I saw between Grand Istana Rama and other hotels in the area. The Pool bar is perfect, it’s not packed with people and there’s a swim up bar and lots of chairs and sun. Endra at the pool bar was so nice and friendly, has a million dollar smile! All the folks at concierge and front desk were always helpful including Sibuk. I extended three times with no issues. Had friend join us as well and they arranged airport pick up with no issues and MUCH cheaper than anywhere else. This place is not a money grab. Bintang beer same price as the convenient store. Food is delicious and affordable. If you call reception or room service for anything at all (towels, soap, coffee etc.) they are super quick and responsive. Everything was absolutely PERFECT zero complaints, zero problems and right in front of Kuta beach. Honestly? You can’t go wrong. Don’t be fooled by “fancier” looking properties, this is the place to be hands down. Congrats to such a great team and for making our Bali stay super memorable. I will definitely be back! Lots of love, Gigi aka Ghada Room 420

Excellent value hotel in a great location”

Great location, friendly staff, clean, fun cultural activities included

We had a fantastic time at the Grand Istana Rama Hotel. It is in a great location, right opposite Kuta Beach and within walking distance to a variety of great shopping throughout Kuta. The breakfast that was included was great and took a lot of the stress out of travelling. The hotel itself is a little tired and run down and our room didn't have a window straight outside - only one in the bathroom. However, the room was large enough and was cleaned thoroughly every day. Drinking water and fresh sheets were also changed every day. It also included a safe which we could use free of charge which we definitely took advantage of. The staff were all very friendly and eager to help, and we enjoyed the Indonesian cooking class that the hotel offered free of charge to guests. All in all we were very satisfied with the Grand Istana Rama Hotel for the price that we paid for it - excellent value!

Clean, Friendly, Great Location

My sister and I stayed at the Grand Istana Rama for 4 nights arriving at 1am which was no dramas for the staff, all were very friendly and quick to show us to our room. We stayed on the ground floor superior room which was clean and fresh. Shower was hot, not very strong but did the job it needed to. Room was cleaned daily with bed made & turned down. the only downfall we found was the connecting door to the room next door let a lot of noise through from the people staying next to us (night time) & the room phone ringing between to 8-9am for activities each day waking us up. All in all was very good price, location was amazing across from the beach, next to the new Beachwalk Shopping Complex and only a short walk to Kuta/Legian, Pool was refreshing & not too busy for a sun bed, staff where very friendly and food/drinks where great too. Would definitely return to the Grand Istana Rama & highly recommend it to my friends & family also.

Located right across from the beach, lovely service, clean, beautiful rooms

I loved my stay at the Grand Istana Rama. Because it was my first trip to Bali, I really appreciated being so close to the beach, shopping, and bars. The service attendants did a great job cleaning the room, and a plate of delicious fruit and chocolate was left in our room each night as a complimentary gift. We also received free tickets and shuttle to experience Banana Boating. There was also a free and delicious breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant each morning, which we especially enjoyed. The villas and rooms also had a nice tropical and Bali-esque feel that I was looking for. All in all, a very comfortable stay, and I looked forward to resting in my room after the activities of the day were done.

Istana Rama our Bali Home”

STAFF, AMBIENCE AND LOCATION

After considering a range of other accommodation we decided to return to the Grand Istana Rama and we are VERY glad we did. The staff from the entrance gate to the gardeners proved to be Istana Rama's greatest asset with engaging smiles and a desire to assist with any request. The massages were fantastic value for money and the girls were welcoming and skilled. The restaurant, swim-up-bar and pool met all our needs and then some. Our room was spacious and very clean with an enormous well appointed bathroom. We were very impressed with the Hotel's committment to both Chloe House an orphanage that they support (with funds donated from the Hotel and their patrons)and an under funded, deprived Primary School called Desa Sangeh at Ubud (where they support an English Language Programme by sending a qualified staff member, teacher, for an afternoon once per week. In addition we would highly reccommend the efforts of Umu, Dimas, Dina, Rara and Jasmine for their excellent English skills and their untiring efforts to make our stay as memorable as possible. They supported us in attending both the school and orphanage and we would highly recommend others to support these worthwhile causes. It will make your trip so much more worthwhile!!

Lovely hotel in a great location”

great location on the beach within walking distance to everything. great staff, very friendly, beautiful grounds

I recently returned from bali with friends and stayed at Istana Rama part of my stay (8 nights). From check in to check out all was great. I didn't have high expectations of the hotel but was very pleasently surprised. The pool is great, grounds are huge and well kept. It's location across from the beach, and in between poppies 2 and Jl Benasari was fantastic and breakfast was sufficient in variety. All staff are extremly friendly and helpfull and the rooms were always kept clean. The only downfall was our room (superior room on 3 rd floor) smelt like cigarettes the entire time and it was a non smoking room. My friends room next door, however, was good.I travel to Bali every year and have stayed at many hotels. All in all it was great value for money, a fantastic place to base yourself when staying in kuta and I would defiantely stay again.

Good mid range hotel”

Position overlooking the beach
A bit tired in places and could do with a bit of a spruce up.

This is the third time that we have stayed at the Grand Istana Rama and we would certainly stay again. Its in a great spot between Kuta and Legian without being too far away from the bustle of Kuta.The restaurant looks out over the beach and the main road, so if you are in to people watching its a great place to eat your breakfast and watch everybody go about their daily business. Staff were always friendly and helpful and the room was clean and quite adequate. As with most hotels in Bali the gardens were beautiful and well looked after.We dont have children so if you want the peace and quiet around the pool, this place is ideal. If i had to pick one fault with this hotel i would say that it is starting to look a bit tired in places but they are obviousy addressing the situation as renovation work is going on to improve the restuarant and main building.

Pleasant stay at Grand Istana Rama”

Location, price, shopping option

Our stay at the Grand Istana Rama was very pleasant. We managed to get a great deal for this hotel through Agoda. We learned that the hotel, although beachfront, has been around for a very long time. But when we arrived in our standard room, we were very pleased to see that it was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was tiled with marble and was very spacious. Overall the room was an excellent deal for the money. I would surmise that the deluxe rooms would be even more comfortable than the standard. I would definitely stay here again in the future, possibly shelling out more money to get the deluxe or the balcony rooms. The only minor complaint is that the hot water is not very hot. But Bali is so hot anyways that you probably wont mind having 'hot showers' that is sligthly cooler and more refreshing.

Repeat visitor ”

We always stay at the Grand Istana Rama when we go to Kuta. We flew in from Perth in the early hours of Saturday 11 March, stayed until Monday morning, off to Lembongan til Friday, back to the Istana Rama for Friday to Monday again, then off to Candidasa, before back to the Istana Rama for our final night in Bali. It is a fabulous base to explore Bali from, if you out are brave, Poppies is just a minute away, as is the Beachwalk. The staff are absolutely fabulous, among the friendliest and most helpful I have ever met. Our 15month old granddaughter loves them, kept saying "hey", jabbering with them, and dancing away with staff and sharing high fives with staff and other patrons in the cocktail bar 😍 The Restaurant does excellent meals, and we were lucky enough to catch the fire dancers again this trip.

We have stayed in a few hotels in Kuta and Grand Istana Rama 3 times. All rooms are spacious and the courtyard rooms are excellent with huge bathrooms as well. Pool with sunken bar, fantastc restaurants (2) , one specialising in Japanese. Live music and buffet dinners as well. All this right next door to Beachwalk Mall and directly opposite Kuta Beach. Easy parking on site too. Excellent value for money. This is now our Kuta Beach hotel of choice. Adults young or old and ki.ds will love it too.

All of the staff was very helpful and friendly. I did not include the breakfast option when I booked the room, but kind of wished I had. I haven't checked to see if it would save any money to do that, but the huge buffet was only $5.35USD/person, so it wasn't a big deal. There were only two faults I could find with anything... 1) The drivers waiting to take you wherever you needed to go are a bit aggressive and after the first time we used one, I tried to avoid coming into contact with him because when he would see us, he would come up and want to take us somewhere. 2) The other thing was the music in the evenings at the restaurant/bar area. It just wasn't to my liking and it was way too loud. Almost impossible to talk even while sitting as far away as possible. I would recommend this hotel. Very nice.

Superb hotel with amazing service”

Nothing was too much trouble for the obliging staff

When we booked the Grand Istana Rama Hotel we specifically wanted to access the internet. After checking into our room we were disappointed that we could not connect. Within seconds of contacting reception we were moved to another room where we had excellent internet connection. The staff were exceptionally helpful! The rooms at the Grand Istana are beautifully appointed with lovely comfortable beds, large safe, and the bathroom was very spacious and quite exotic. The grounds are very tastefully landscaped. We would have liked to have spent more time here.

Excellent mid-range hotel”

Brilliant staff- friendly, helpful, excellent breakfast, quiet, private rooms despite proximty to Kuta beach

Grand Istana Rama is a pleasant surprise, being mid-priced and right on busy Kuta Beach. Rooms are very quiet and pleasant, services prompt and well-maintained, (manicured gardens!)and staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent - can be hard to locate a free table but staff are on hand, and the pool is large, clean and inviting. Early check-in is always a problem when you arrive at 6 a.m. tired, but staff were able to allow 11 a.m. instead of 2p.m, which is reasonable when the hotel is fully booked and check-out is 12 midday..

Great location, great rooms and free WIFI!”

On the beach (only Jalan Pantai Kuta separating from complete beachfront)

We usually stay in Tuban a few hundred metres south of this location, but secured a room at the Grand Istana Rama after only booking the holiday two weeks' prior to departure. Primarily we booked as it was school holidays and other lesser rate accommodation was much more expensive, however we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. A beautiful garden setting directly across the road from the beach and within easy walking distance of all the main attractions including Kuta Square, the Art Markets, Poppies 1 and 2 etc. After discovering the hotel by default, we would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous staff, food and cocktails”

Fabulous staff, food and cocktails! Super friendly without being smarmy. Good meals at a reasonable price, and the husband got 2 free bintang per day :)

I stayed at the Grand Istana Rama in Feb 2012 so when we planned our holiday for this year I didn't consider anywhere else, I booked straight back in. It's across the road from Kuta Beach, it's walkable to the Hard Rock and Poppies, and it has a great restaurant with a cocktail bar. The buffet breakfasts suit every one's breakfast style, and they have a pancake and waffle station, as well as an omelette man! Love the Grand Istana Rama, and will stay there again :)

Great location and service”

Lovely swimming poo to stay cool

The grand Istana is located just across the road from the beach. We were staying at hotel as room only guests but they offered free dinner and a beer in the restaurant between 19.00 and 20.00. They had a set mains every night so there was no choice but it was free so go and enjoy. We also received a free 30 minute massage and a banana boat ride so definitely good value for money. The staff were so friendly,we will definitely stay here the next time we visit Bali and we will be recommending it to our friends. If you want a really great holiday book the Grand Istana Rama!!

Fantastic Hotel, Great Location”

Beautiful rooms, great location, beautiful grounds, nice staff

We stayed at the Grand Istana Rama for 8 nights and absolutly loved it. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well maintained, breakfast selection is great, staff are friendly and helpful. We got offered free cooking classes, surfing lesson and indonesian lessons. The rooms were clean, the water pressure wasnt great, but cant complain to much about that. The pool is beautiful, got a few tiles missing and could do with some more pool beds but still great atmosphere and service. Even when the pool bar was closed late at night they still bought us drinks to the pool from the tequila bar. Pool is close to the pool, but not close enough that you hear any noise from your room. This hotel was not aimed at a particular age group there were all different types there, families, couples, oldies, groups, was a great atmosphere for all. To summarise great stay, and will stay there again in a heart beat !!!

Grand Istana Rama - No Drama”

Location, Value for money, Staff friendliness

Best value for money with a tremendous swimming pool& pool bar. The only thing the hotel needs to improve on is by being able to provide guests with more than one key card. However we overcame this issue by leaving it at the front desk. Buffet Breakfast is in the Samudera Restaurant where one is provided with a good variety of Western and local food. We really enjoyed our stay and cannot fault the staff and our room was big, clean and comfortable. So I give a 9 out of 10 and will definitely stay again with the beach and shopping so close to the Grand Istana Rama Hotel.
