Sheraton Bali Junior Suite Review

Continuing from the Qantas A330 business review is the hotel that I stayed at for one night. As I really didn’t have much time to visit and look around, there is no point booking a luxury property so I decided to go with the Sheraton with a rate of just over 200 AUD which I find to be pretty standard.

The Sheraton is located around Kuta beach area and is about a 15-35 minute drive from Denpasar airport depending on the traffic. I took a taxi from the airport and was ripped off by about 200,000 IDR, so it’s worthwhile to make sure you’re not just going with the most accessible option like I did.

While the hotel is relatively close to Denpasar airport, the traffic is quite hectic, resulting in a 20-minute ride which I’d say is normal.

The Sheraton Bali is a category five property which means you’ll use 30,000 Bonvoy points for an off-peak award night, 35,000 for a standard and 40,000 for a peak night. If you want to use cash and points for the hotel, you’ll be looking at $140 USD + 13,500 for an off-peak, $140 USD + 17,000 points for a standard and $140 USD + 21,000 points for a peak night.

The reception area overlooks the pool as well as the beach; I’m surprised it wasn’t busier than it was.

One thing I picked up on was the outstanding service of the staff. Every interaction I had with a staff member was flawless, extremely polished and professional. As I arrived, my bag was put through a scanner, and I was escorted up to the check-in facility. Check-in was done quickly, and I was also given a welcome drink and was told about benefits that I would receive. The hotel itself doesn’t have an executive lounge, but instead of that, they’ll give you an afternoon tea. As I was leaving before the time of which it started, the lady checking me in assured me that they’d be happy to do it any time I would like as long as I just let them know by phone, that’s pretty fantastic.

I booked a basic room but was upgraded to a junior suite as a Platinum which also featured an ocean view, or kind of anyway. One thing I was a little sceptical about was the possible noise coming from Kuta. Still, even when sitting on the balcony, I couldn’t hear any of it besides the occasional sirens from emergency vehicles.

The first thing you’ll find in the room when you enter is the bathroom and storage areas which are located on the right.

The hotel was also stocked with single-use bottles of Le Grand Bain as well as the standard items you’ll find like a dental kit and razor.

Another thing I liked about the hotel is the number of water bottles they give you. There are two bottles of water in the bathroom, then another four in the bedroom.

The bathroom was kept clean and felt quite spacious.

The bathroom also  included a bathtub:

The main bedroom is located on your right when you walk into the suite. The bed was perfectly acceptable, and the pillows weren’t too thin, which I love.

In the main living space is where you’ll find a small desk as well as a lounging chair.

The hotel provided a lovely welcome amenity and even customized it, which was kind of them.

The junior suite also includes a balcony, but unfortunately, the view of the beach is a little obstructed.

I enjoyed my quick stay at the Sheraton Bali and would happily return if my travels bring me there. Without a doubt, the part that impressed me the most was the attitude of all the staff. They were always friendly and happy to assist. The only complaint I have is that interestingly, there were no towels in the bathroom. Luckily this is a perfectly simple request to have fulfiled.

Have you stayed at the Sheraton Bali?

Wait… you wasted $200 on a hotel room in Bali for one night and you pissy about spending $20 on a taxi ride that will take 15-35 minutes? Either do you home work or stay at the airport hotel,

The cost wasn’t the issue, it was the fact I wasn’t smart about the taxi I went with and took the first option – lesson learned.
