"Plesant stay in the heart of Eat St!"
This hotel is modern and spacious. The house staff were super friendly and helpful. The room we had, no word of a lie was about the same size of the house we live in in NZ! The room was massive! The rooms were clean but I did note the waterproofing issues in the shower, this is only due to how the hotel was constructed. The roof top pool and bar was amazing and relatively cheap. What I loved the most was that you would walk off the busy street and all of a sudden felt secluded, which is nice feeling after spending the entire day in the hustle and bustle of Bali. It is also very conveniently located with a authorised money changer in the mini mart across the street. Very good rates too! I would definitely stay here again!
"Great location and AMAZING breakfast!"
U-passha is on one of the main streets in Seminyak with many places to eat and get drinks a close walk away. The beach is about a 10/15min walk and it is wonderful to watch people surfing and stroll along the long sandy beach. The bed and pillows were comfortable, large bathroom and the staff was very friendly. The included breakfast is amazing (lovely made to order cappuccinos, iced coffee, latte) with a huge selection of Indonesia and "western" food. Front desk was attentive and efficient while calling us a taxi. FYI- blue bird taxi is the best (we found it the most affordable and least scary as many drivers in Bali are terrifying). The only cons of this hotel are the small pool which is only open until 8pm and the wifi was poor in the rooms (but ok in the lobby)
Nice little hotel with a really great roof top pool. The cocktail are good.. pool snacks are tasty, but the food for bfast and the BBQ on the rooftop just seem like missed opportunities. I have stayed at this hotel 5 times and still really like it. Gede and the other pool waiting staff are a credit to the U brand.
Upaasha has a great pool on the roof and is one of the best locations on the strip. I love this place because there are no kids to be seen anywhere! Gede, the pool boy is awesome and really looked after us well.
"Would Never come back or recommend to anyone"
This is probably the only frustrating experiences we had throughout our Bali. We pre booked this hotel as was purely because it was recommended by one of our friends and we did not even do any researches just booked it. Upon our arrival, we realized the lobby was a open-to-public one and does not have air-con, which was bit weird for weather like Bali. The check-in process was great as I believe we were served by the reception manager. Shortly After we settled in our room, hubby found we could not even lock our front door, which was the first time I've experienced among all our trips. Could not understand how did the management team check the room before serving customers. Then after our dinner back from Seminyak, hubby found another "surprise", which is a cockroach on the floor and it is really made us both feel really uncomfortable !! And then my hubby woke up at 3am in the mid night as the terrible noise caused by the room air-con and he went downstairs to the lobby trying to find a solution and the answer from the night-shift staff was "Sorry, nothing can be done and we will have to wait until next morning to see if they can help us change room". So it left my husband the whole night unable to sleep. We were so frustrated of all we've experienced from the beginning we checked in and The next morning we decided to check out and find another better hotel. When we were trying to check out and was advised that they had to charge one more night as Cancellation fee ($180 roughly) simply because we were booked via a hotel-booking website not directly through them. Ridiculous!!!! We paid and left as we didn't want to stay any longer with this hotel , which was hopeless from head to toe!!! And one more thing, if you want to enjoy the rooftop pool at about 7pm for abut of relaxation, sorry, the answer is no as NO beach towel is offered and no staff is there on duty. Didn't trying to be negative but just want to let all the travelers know you have to take the risks of choosing this hotel if you choose to!! Blacklisted and Never Gonna recommend this hotel to anyone!! !!!!!
