Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A modern hotel featuring traditional Balinese decorations, a huge freeform pool, and a stunning courtyard lounge

One of the hotel's best qualities is its sense of space and openness, which is a quality that's hard to find in most similarly priced hotels in densely populated Kuta. The hotel entrance features a traditional Balinese stone gate which leads into an open Balinese-style gazebo made of teak wood that serves as the hotel lobby  and features elegant marble floors, carved limestone panels, comfy couches, a check-in and tour desk, plus a computer for guests to use. Outside is the huge courtyard area shaded by a stunning Banyan tree. The Padmi Lounge is set within the picturesque courtyard setting under the towering tree. Plenty of comfy chairs are set up in the courtyard and the space feels relaxed, breezy, and far removed from the busy streets nearby. The pool in the back of the hotel is in a quiet area surrounded by greenery and a large wooden sundeck. There is a swim-up bar, plenty of lounge chairs to relax on, and enough space that it doesn't get overcrowded. The overall aesthetic and decor of the hotel showcases a combination of Balinese and Western features, and there are detailed Balinese decorations, statues, and artworks on display throughout. The hotel is often quiet during the day, with most guest out shopping and dining at the nearby locales or relaxing on Kuta Beach. 

Location

On the outskirts of downtown Kuta, and a 20-minute walk from Kuta Beach

The hotel is located along a small bustling road on the outskirts of downtown Kuta, about a 20-minute trek from most of Kuta's main attractions. The nearest dining areas and places of interests to the hotel are along Kartika Street, which is around 10 minutes away on foot and features lots of dining, shopping, and nightlife options. Also located along Kartika Street is the Discovery Shopping Mall and Waterbom Bali. The ever crowded Kuta Beach is around a 20-minute walk from the hotel. This long white-sand beach is ideal for novice surfers as the waves break over a soft sand bottom. Surf schools and local vendors along the beach offer lessons and board rentals. Legian Street, which features Bali's wildest nightlife scene and some of the biggest nightclubs on the island, is around a 25- minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is conveniently located less than a 10-minute drive from the airport, making it a popular transit hotel.

Rooms

Bright and pleasant rooms equipped with air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and kettles

Interiors have clean modern stylings that feature either parquet wood flooring or light colored tiles. Walls are plain white and feature some simple Balinese carvings and paintings. Furnishings include upholstered couches, work tables and chairs, comfy beds, and large wardrobes. Junior Suites add teak wood day beds to the mix. Amenities include air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs with cable channels, coffee- and tea-making facilities, mini-fridges, safes, and bottled mineral water. 

Bathrooms are compact and feature cream colored marble tiles and long black Corian vanities with large mirrors. The bathrooms in the higher category rooms have shower/tub combos whereas lower type rooms only have small glass shower cubicles. Toiletries and hairdryers are provided. Rooms have large windows that let in plenty of natural light and airflow and some higher category rooms feature balconies. 

Rooms show moderate wear and tear and guests report numerous maintenance issues, such as air conditioners that don't get cold, broken mini-fridges, and foul smelling bathrooms. Also, the hotel is located along a bustling street and the rooms have thin walls, so noise pollution is an issue here.

Features

A freeform pool, a spa, a courtyard lounge, a meeting room, and a poolside restaurant
