This was our third stay at this resort, and in a way that sums up how good it was. It was like coming home. There were a couple of issues, but none that would prevent us from returning once again.
We have always chosen the junior suites as they offer not only comfort and privacy, but also some space. I am not one to lounge in the sun all day long, so I always take some work with me, and find that the suites allow you to work well, and the wifi is good enough to allow you to connect remotely to your office if needed.
On the food front we found that the restaurants catered to our tastes well, and we were more than satisfied at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A small "cafe" provided morning and afternoon teas as well as ice cream and cakes. All the food and drinks were affordable and not over priced as in some resorts.
The resort itself was small enough to make it personal, and in fact the staff are very proud of their hotel and it shows in their work and attitudes. Management was also very helpful with our issues and kept checking that we were satisfied - more on that below.
There is a spa, and once again the prices were very affordable, and there is a small shop again with very affordable prices and it is open till late.
The kids club has been relocated (they say temporarily but I say keep it there) and was well utilized by our grandchildren, and close to the pool for parents to pop in every now and then.
It is located away from the madness of the Kuta area, but it is only a short walk up the beach pathway, or a 5 minute taxi ride if you like eating out or partying.
We had one main issue this time, and that was the subject of smoking in the room, which affected the joint air conditioning, or the smoking on the veranda where smoke blew into our area. The hotel explained to us that smoking was not permitted in the rooms or on the verandah, and that they do provide some smoking areas for those so inclined. Management did speak to the guests involved, but it seems that no sooner than one smoker leaves another arrives and is in the suite next to us. The signage needs to be slightly better to allow people to know that it is not permitted except in special areas.
We were eventually relocated to a different type of suite, and this was fine, but it did come with some extra noise, but nothing that would upset our visit. As I said management kept checking to make sure we were happy, and that is unusual in most hotels.
Would we stay again - absolutely.

This hotel has a fantastic location For those who specially like to walk on the beach, its very close to the airport I am a Platinum Card holder so we got a room upgrade, the entire staff was very nice and cooperative, room was big enough, clean and facing the pool. As compared to the room size toilet was not big enough especially the shower cube was quite small and the water leaked through the glass. Breakfast was average. Other restaurants and café was quite good and reasonable. Overall we were being looked after very well and I would recommend people going to Bali to surely stay in Holiday Inn Resort Baruna. I would definitely stay in the same resort on my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gemmal92 Amazing resort with excellent facilities
Everything about our stay was impeccable - the resort grounds, staff service and our room. We loved the swim up bar and the pool which was a stones throw away from the beach creating a very relaxing atmosphere. The buffet breakfast was incredible and we had plenty of amazing meals at both the Palms and Envy, the hotel restaurants. We even indulged in room service occasionally which was both affordable and efficient. The resort spa was also a highlight. All in all an excellent resort, highly recommend!

We stayed at the Baruna Bali Holiday Inn and just loved it. The rooms were great, had a king size bed, and were very clean. We even had animal towels! The pool area was great and the gardens were beautiful. We loved the restaurant Envy - so pretty. Thanks!

Stayed here for 3 nights. Received free upgrade on arrival. Room and grounds so clean - I have not seen a property this clean in Bali - I have visited Bali 8 times since 1982 and not stayed at the same property due to cleanliness
