Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TonyS54 Great location
A truly lovely hotel with many water features and cabanah style loungers.
Was our anniversary and received a surprise, tasty celebratory cake courtesy of the hotel - scrumptious !
Two minor negative comments -
a/while lounging near the beach bar no one approached for drinks/service etc
b/the linen basket or door shutters had not been dusted in a while with linen basket dust 'hardened' in. This is down to the weave effect but needs regular cleaning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Iain1 A splendid holiday from reality
First time to Bali and my partner and I decided to visit on a bit of whim: have been working in Central Asia and the Middle East for the last 3 1/2 months, was utterly knackered and wanted to stay somewhere comfortable for 6 days on the way back to Sydney. The Resort totally lived up to expectations, with lovely, friendly staff one of my highlights. Everyone smiled. All the time. It was great! (Paerticularly when they were carrying a pina colada with my name on it.)
Roomservice food was amazingly good: my partner said his steak was excellent and my red curry was one of the tastiest i've ever enjoyed. Room was huge: a duplex with the uber-bed on a mezzanine floor and a humongous, comfortable en suite bigger than my flat at home. The Spa was excellent and swimming pools were relaxed and calm. The gardens are beautiful. Breakfast was utterly delicious. I want live here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MIchel12 Our second time in Bali
We just returned from our second trip to the Intercontinental Bali resort, and this trip was even better than the last. Admittedly we travelled off season when the resort had lower occupancy, so we didn't battle any crowded conditions. Everything about this place was wonderful, but if I had to call out one specific thing that made our stay great, it would be the staff. Bali is well known for friendly people, but the staff at the Intercontinental take it even further. They are not only so very friendly and kind, but they go out of their way to anticipate your needs and offer things before you even know you want them.
The Inspiration Center recommended two trips/programs, both of which were fantastic. The first was a Balinese cooking class at a very authentic Balinese center (Rumah Desa) about two hours away from the hotel. The staff arranged transportation to/from and the class itself was wonderful. We learned how to cook 12 Balinese/Indonesian dishes. The second outing was a tour of the non-touristy parts of Bali- an attempt to learn more about how Balinese people live and conduct their lives. This was fascinating and we had a fantastic tour guide, well recommended by the staff at the Intercontinental.
We were upgraded to the Bukit Suite, which was excellent- very comfortable bedding, a great bathroom, and so much space.
The food at the resort was also a highlight. We had lunch every day at the Club pool and we appreciated the variety of options from Indonesian to Asian to Western. We enjoyed the Japanese Restaurant, Ko, for both the sushi and the tepannyaki. Our Club Butler arranged a fantastic romantic Seafood dinner for two.
This is a resort to which we will return very often, we had a great time.

We felt at home instantly when we saw all the smiling faces that remembered us from previous visits and the present basket that waited for us at a cozy room. All employees went out of their way to please us. How can we not go back for another great vacation??

Absolutely gorgeous gardens pool areas and beach. Staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Highly recommend this property. However we couldnt justify drinking at this Hotel we needed to have our cocktails outside the hotel.
