Putri Bali Hotel is located at Nusa Dua along the beach with
Grand Hyatt Bali Hotel on its left.
Again, after our morning swim in the Grand Hyatt, we wanted to go somewhere
else to have lunch. We know that there are many hotels adjacent to the
Grand Hyatt along the beach so this time we turned right at the beach and within
2 minutes walk there is Putri Bali Hotel.
Putri Bali Hotel has 2 swimming pools - the small one has the
shallowest part of 0.6m deep so it's suitable for young kids. It used to
be a problem for us when our son couldn't tread water and deep swimming pool is
not so fun for him.
We passed the swimming pools and walked into the hotel garden. The
garden is nicely done with statues around.
Most of the hotel restaurants, however, look very dead. They are dark
and closed. We ate in one that's closest to the beach. We ordered
one fish and chip but the fish was overcooked, one green salad with ham and
chicken with some shell pasta and one spaghetti Bolognaise with stale garlic
bread, all for Rp200,000. It's about half the price of Grand Hyatt's
restaurant but I presume there are not enough customers dining in the hotel so
some food are not fresh.
A few days later, we saw some tourists walked along a public road between
Putri Bali Hotel and Bali Hilton Hotel so we
decided to follow. We then discovered that there is a small village which
has about half dozen restaurants serving Balinese and international cuisines all
within 10 minutes walk. That explain why most hotel restaurants don't get
Putri's hotel lobby is on the first floor. (more likely the public road is
higher than the beach so the lobby entrance becomes the first floor compare to
the sea level) The lobby is very big with gigantic Garuda's statues on all
corners. But because it's very big and not enough lighting it tends to
look a bit dark.
The Putri Hotel seems to be quite popular with westerners compare to the
Grand Hyatt. Maybe that's why there are signs around the swimming pool
stating no topless sunbathing is allowed.
