French luxury, sandy beaches and brilliant food
 

RATING: ★★☆☆ - Good |   CATEGORY: LUXURY HOTEL

A holiday at Sofitel Bali beach resort is a little like being that crying child in the grocery store; you would most definitely get some delicious food and go home with a pretty good tan but your tantrums and whining would be ignored. So be prepared to be pampered at Sofitel and stuffed with some great food!

The resort

In all aspects a very luxurious 5-star hotel. Sofitel is a little smaller compared to the typical Balinese resort, but while size may matter to some, Softel’s ultra-lux surroundings and high-end finishes more than makes up for the lack of sprawling hotel grounds.

Do not be disillusioned, the resort has all the amenities you’d expect in a luxury hotel, it even has two spas, a very well endowed swimming pool, a beautiful private beach and multiple restaurant to boot. The restaurants were excellent and the beach club was also spectacular.

What really impressed was LE BAR, the bar on the lobby level, while the beverage list was pretty standard fare, the tremendous views of the architecture will take your breath away. Cascading roofs tiled with lush green grass disappears into a picturesque ocean horizon. I could very happily sit here for hours, champagne in hand, watching the clouds go by.

The room

Elegant and well laid-out, rooms were tastefully decorated with modern Balinese furniture with a light French influence. The icon of the space was the bath tub, prominently positioned just off-centre in the room, the bathtub divides the bedroom from bathroom. 

Dining & breakfast

Sofitel hotels across the world tend to have stellar restaurants and more-than-agreeable breakfast spreads and Sofitel Bali is no exception.

Breakfast at Kwee Zeen was a decadent spread of global delicacies. The breakfast buffet had everything one could hope for; A well selected charcuterie platter, live Indonesian noodle sections, cold pressed juices and even local health elixir shots.

Cut Catch Cucina is another beautiful restaurant on the hotel grounds. More suited for dinner, this restaurant has stunning pool sunset views and the design of the space accentuates it’s amber glow. Dinner here was casual in an elegant setting and the food was well executed. The pizzas are thin crust and the steaks and dry-aged and served with a generous sprinkle of fleur de sel... what’s not to love.

The experience

Sofitel Beach Resort Bali is a fantastic resort. A solid 5-star resort in Bali, but not quite ready to be a contender for one of the best in Bali and they  probably don’t have to. They have their own clientele, a strong brand name and some of the best food offered in any resort in Bali. But there’s still a certain je ne sai quoi which leaves one craving for more.
