Adhi Jaya hotel in Kuta is located right opposite the Discovery Mall. We visited Bali in May and were looking to spend 3 nights in Kuta because of its proximity to the temples we wanted to visit. We were thinking of Mercure Kuta which had a restaurant overlooking the pool; but their package including breakfast was too high. Also, the review of breakfast buffet at Adhi Jaya was pretty good. It was also very close to Kuta beach; which we thought would be a good thing. It costed us ~4000 INR per night (800000 IDR per night).
Adhi Jaya hotel is some 4kms from the airport and is located close to Kuta beach. We had a poolside Deluxe room. Its a small hotel, so all rooms are close to the pool. If you prefer a quiet room, opt for the garden facing rooms. Poolside gets very noisy; especially since they allow drinks/ snacks to be served there. The room was little small but the kingsize bed was huge. That was good, especially because we had our 5yr old son. Agoda/ makemytrip etc mention that we need to take extra bed for kids above 5, but when we wrote to the hotel they said kids can share parent’s bed at no extra charge but need to pay extra (66000 IDR) for breakfast per day. We were ok with that. However, we later realized that this was for kids above 6yrs of age so we were not charged extra for kiddo’s breakfast.
The hotel is located right opposite discovery mall and their restaurant overlooks the mall. One can get straight into the mall and come out on the opposite side to reach the Kuta beach. However, we were not impressed with Kuta beach at all. It was quite dirty and very crowded when we went. We did not go to that beach again after first evening. There are many restaurants and shopping places/ Circle K etc on the same street so the location is very convenient.
Room was clean. They provide 2 1/2 lts bottle water complimentary everyday. Bathroom had bathtub and overhead shower. Room was cleaned everyday and the staff was polite.
They have a restaurant cum bar. Its a good one except that there is no AC and it becomes very uncomfortable if you are not sitting right under a fan. Food was good, though little overpriced. There was hardly any difference between portions of kiddo meal and adult meal. Though they did not have much veg options in menu, they did prepare veg on request. Breakfast spread was good and fresh.
They had room service too.
Our kiddo used the kiddo pool. It was small but ok. It was very noisy at times because there is a bar right there. We were planning to use the spa (full body massage@ 150000 IDR, head and shoulders @ 170000 IDR) but did not have time for it. They have a small lawn too, which is good if you have very young kids.
Overall, a good hotel. Next time we will probably look for another hotel though because the Kuta beach was not upto the mark.
