The last two nights of my 6 weeks holiday were festive, great, awesome and give me all the feelings of “Take me back to this place please…” I stayed two nights in Bali with Aryaduta Bali Hotel, it was precisely from May 29th to May 31st. Read below my review on the check in to Aryaduta Bali.
Address: Jl. Kartika Plaza, Lingkungan Segara, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung 80361, Bali, Indonesia

I arrived in Bali just before the lunchtime that day after a short early flight from Yogyakarta. The Aryaduta Bali hotel is strategically located which is only 10 minutes from the Airport. It was a smooth ride without any traffic jam. From the hotel which is located in the South part of Kuta, the hotel is also a perfect hub for both shoppers and sun worshipers. The Segara beach is just a walking distance, the new Lippo Mall shopping centre is just next door, and you can walk a bit further for another shopping centre, The Discovery Mall. The street side is full of bars, restaurants and shopping choices. Never a boring walk down the street. Not to forget to mention is that the Waterbom Park Bali is just a minute walk from the Aryaduta Bali Hotel.
The Spacious Rooms at Aryaduta Bali
Aryaduta Bali Hotel has four types of rooms available for you; the superior room, the deluxe room, the deluxe premier room and the executive room. I stayed in the deluxe premier room. The Deluxe Premier Room has a spacious balcony overlooking the inside garden and the chapel. The room was huge, and the XXL bed was a dream.
Tip 1: Some of the rooms have no bathtub, make sure that you request the room with a tub if you really need it.
Check in to Aryaduta Bali Ambience
My first impression while entering the hotel was luxury, premium services and heritage reference everywhere. The hotel is beautifully designed, and attention in details is easily recognised by the choices in the lobby; from the furniture to the accessories and wall-features.
The Roof top Pool & Bar
Aryaduta Bali offers a panoramic rooftop swimming pool for a stunning city view which ends with an extensive sea and the horizon. A place that is very ideal to relax, unwind and soaked up by the Balinese Sun. Next, to the rooftop pool, the bar is ready to serve refreshing drinks and delicious foods.
Do you need to excercise your muscle? The hotel has the fitness room ready for you.
Next to the standard room amenities such as safety box, satellite tv, wifi connection and much more, the high-quality and premium service from Aryaduta is also reflected in the bathroom amenities. The designer bathroom amenities are designed exclusively by Sebastian Gunawan. Sebastian Gunawan is an Indonesian high-fashion designer and has been recognised as an ‘Asian Couturier Extraordinaire’ by the Asian Couture Federation.
Tip: I am missing the coffee maker in the room, such as Nespresso or Dolce Gusto which will make a huge difference.
When quality is more important than quantity, Aryaduta Bali Hotel owns one restaurant in a Grill & Bar concept and a rooftop pool bar. Don’t worry, you will not left with half empty stomach. Henry’s Grill & Bar is one of the best meat restaurants in town. In Henry’s Grill & Bar you can find a perfect mix of Australian meets New Zealand beef either grilled, smoked or cured which all are high quality. The grill restaurant is also famous with their wood-fired grill named ‘The Beast’ and their all homemade products from dip sauces, cocktails and garnishes for salads. On the mezzanine, Henry’s Bar and Grill is focusing on the sports and fun times with old-school pinball machine and pool table.
My favourite dishes are the Octopus, radish, rocket & pickled daikon with herb vinaigrette and the Grilled watermelon salad, rocket, feta, watercress & mint as my starters. The T-bone 500g Italian style Bistecca and the Tomahawk on the bone 1KG from the belly of “The Beast” as the main courses. The Grilled spiced corn and the Triple cooked fries as the sides with the garlic herb butter and piccalilli as condiments. Complimented with Chimichurri, Blue cheese & mushroom Mint chutney and Date & coriander relish sauces. For the desserts, the Pavlova and doughnuts tower chocolate milkshake for the champion. I drink Henry’s signature Kecombrang Lychee Ice Tea and local beers. See the menu here.
Tip: Get a Tomahawk, it is the best in town. A good reason to check in to Aryaduta Bali.
Note: Above mentioned foods & beverages were served as shared-dining of four persons.
Check in to Aryaduta Bali is not only about the hotel. Using the connecting floor, it is safe and comfortable to visit the newly build Lippo Mall Kuta, Bali which is in the same building as the Aryaduta Bali Hotel.
As I mentioned in my previous posts, meeting the people was the highlight of my trips. I am really grateful for the hospitality and warm attention from the whole Aryaduta Bali team. Special thanks to Paul, Anna, Sidney and Ingo for my fabulous time in Aryaduta Bali.
