"My Favourite Resort"
We had an amazing second visit to Gending Kedis recently. The staff are amazing and our 4 bedroom villa was fantastic. We loved the private pool. The housekeeping staff were great as were the room service delivery staff. The drivers couldn’t have helped more and took us where we needed to go. Reception staff were great and were so helpful when our flight was cancelled and we had to stay an extra night. The restaurant and room service prices are very reasonable. Thank you so much Douglas and all the staff. We hope to come back again. Tracy and Jamie Stevens (and family)
"A huge disappointment"
This hotel is in a serious, serious need of renovation. It was built in 2007 and judging by our villa, has not been touched since. Luckily we only stayed here for one night, purely to be close to the airport before our flight home. We couldn't, and wouldn't, have stayed any longer. The staff on arrival were nice, although I found it odd that they wanted to see our reservation on hotels.com on my phone, and take a photo of the screen. The villa was down an 80 step, outdoor staircase. Which was fine for us, but probably worth mentioning to people before they book. The villa was dated, lots of dark wood. The a/c had not been turned on before we arrived, so the place was very hot and smelled very damp. Because the villa has an indoor part which is connected to an outdoor section, it seems that the humidity of outside has affected the inside parts and caused them to get mouldy and damp. There were ants everywhere and the bar in the living room was not cleaned. The a/c in the bedroom wasn't on when we arrived either and this really smelled of damp. We had to have the very old, loud a/c unit running all night as there is a 1 inch gap under the bedroom doors to the outside, so the room isn't well insulated. The toilet was broken, making a loud noise for about 30mins after flushing, the water that came out of the taps was slightly brown. We were told that we had to have dinner and breakfast in our villa, due to a wedding. Ordinarily this wouldn't be too much of an issue; however, aside from the bugs I've already mentioned, the villa seemed generally unclean which made it an unpleasant eating environment. Add to that, we took our order for breakfast to reception, as requested, and were told to take it to the restaurant ourselves. Which seemed a bit of a cheek. Needless to say, we didn't stay for dinner. There are so many places to stay in Bali and our previous accommodation showed how brilliant the hotels and villas here can be, as well as the Balinese people. Unfortunately, Gending Kedis does not exemplify the best of Bali, and I would strongly advise against staying here. It is absolutely not good value for the money you have to pay.
We spent our honeymoon here and loved every minute of it!! They prepared our room so beautiful for our check in. The villa was spacious, private and very clean. We loved the room service. The private pool was fantastic. Only feedback would be that the room needs a lil bit more lighting. Everyone in the hotel was very helpful and they went out of their way to accommodate us. They booked great excursions and even prepared to go breakfast boxes for us. The hotel offers a great shuttle service that can take you to nearby attractions. You can also book a driver for the day and create your own trip. We also rented a scooter and drove around town. The hotel facilitate that as well. The entire experience was fantastic and very peaceful. Eri, our driver was the greatest and did a phenomenal job.
"Do not recommend "
We stayed there for two night and we could not have stayed any longer. We payed so much compared to what we got. The room was very old, not in terms of fashion but there was moulding all over, super old floors, toilet, bed and sheets. Very unpleasant to stay in. We even had two insects when we opened the bed. The service is good and the personnel very nice. The food is really bad, even a basic frozen pizza was not properly cooked. The prices are really outrageous compared to what you get for your money. Do not recommend.
"The epitome of luxury and style...if this were 2007"
We stayed in a two room villa with the family this summer. Let's start with the pros: 1) the rooms were good sized (the tube TV was a nice touch), the common living area was nice, as was the kitchen; 2) each of these villas had a pool, which was heated and certainly big enough for fun and games; 3) the breakfast, while it did not offer the choice of a buffet, was totally adequate; 4) the gym was surprisingly good; 5) the service was very good; 6) we had dinner there and it was quite good. The cons pretty much boil down to the whole place feeling dated and worn. The pool deck is falling apart, the color scheme and furnishings are dated (lots of dark cherry wood, which may be consistent with Balinese style, but it makes the whole place a bit dark and decidedly not modern). The only other con is that the shuttle to town only runs in the mornings and evenings (and only into town). It is on a hill, and walking to town is a bit of a trek. On the bright side, you can get a Grab pretty much anywhere and it only costs a few dollars. All and all, I would recommend the place, just don't expect a stylish/hip setting.
