Thank you for your kind review.
We remain puzzled by your observation about breakfast no longer being included. Prior to 3 years ago, our rates never included breakfast - it was always additional, and a la carte, either using a menu with prices that was completed and hung on the doorknob, or guests could eat breakfast in our restaurant. Since 3 years ago, and across all the online travel agencies, as well as our own website, there has always been a choice between Room Only and Room with Breakfast. Your booking was clearly selected as Room Only.
Beautiful oasis in otherwise busy Kuta. Relatively high price, but worth every penny. Go there, especially during this Corona affected season. Even more serene now. Maybe as nice and quiet ss the place was thirty or forty years ago.
Thank you for a perfect score, and for your support, as things get a bit uncertain..
This was a place we had admired for a long time but never stayed before. We have now and absolutely loved the place – it is just so beautiful! Take one step from the chaos that is Poppies 1 through the door into the hotel grounds and the transformation is immediate and incredible.
Peace and tranquillity everywhere and it is impossible not to relax.
Getting there - the hotel offer free of charge collection (or drop-off) from the airport which is a really nice touch.
Other than that, it is such a well established place every driver will know where it is. We discovered the Grab app while we were here and used that. It is cheap, reliable and efficient.
Location – excellent.
As I’ve mentioned, you are right on poppies lane one with all the entertainment that brings! Great bars and restaurants, convenience stores and about a 10 minute walk down to the beach.
The location really couldn’t be better.
Cottages – the first thing that hits you is the privacy.
Each one is like a little house with its own garden and beautiful veranda. We used the last named lots and spent many happy hours out on the morning and evening just relaxing. It has comfortable furniture, fan and thoughtfully coils for mosquitoes. By the way, to say this is such a garden based accommodation we got very little trouble with insects.
Inside the bungalow is very well designed and comfortable indeed. A TV along with a fridge, dressing gown‘s and a very comfortable bed which we slept very well indeed. There is a ceiling fan and fairly decent air-conditioning.
The outdoor bathroom is beautiful and has a net so no wildlife can't join you! The shower doubles as a bath and it is all done out in a beautiful Balinese style.
Wi-Fi – free for unlimited devices and runs at about 20 GB.
As someone mentioned, to have your individual hotspot you need to put the television on but we managed to pick up all the routers around the property easily as well. No need for constant logging in and it reaches all areas including the pool.
Pool – must be one of the most beautiful areas of its type we’ve ever been to.
Again, done in the local style it is absolutely beautiful and full of character. At times we were the only people using it so none of the selfish sunbed hogging here.
Staff – they simply could not do enough for you.
From the moment you walk into the property to when you leave they are unobtrusive but more than happy to help you when needed. Nothing is too much trouble and whatever you need will be provided with a big smile.
Food – we were in a room only so can’t comment on the breakfast. As I mentioned, there are shops everywhere so you can easily buy your own. As an indication of what a wonderful place it is we used to wake up two flasks of fresh water and complimentary bananas provided.
A small indicator of just what a superb place it is.
The biggest satisfaction any Management team can hope for, is when guests notice and actually refer to so many of the little things they’ve all been working on for many years.
Thank you! Thank you for staying with us, and thank you for taking so much of your time to set down such a magnificent appraisal of Poppies, for others to benefit from.
Especially as we face a very uncertain immediate future complicated by COVID-19...
Poppies always feels like we are coming home from the moment we enter the foyer. Yet again it did not disappoint. The staff are second to none when it comes to customer service and the cottages, pool and gardens are just beautiful. Yes we will be back again next year. I think it will be visit number 12! Don't knock Kuta until you have stayed at Poppies!!!
Gai !!!!! Sending you a separate email... So sorry to miss you yet again!!
Thanks as always
Came here based a friends recommendation for a quintessential kuta accommodation. We were not disappointed, everything is a little bit dated, which is the charm. Would stay again and recommend. Only criticism is the beds may need to be replaced, seemed a bit old but wasn’t a dealbreaker
Thank you for staying with us and for giving us such high marks despite the beds, which are in fact high on our list for attention! Along with curtains, which are ALMOST finished....!
I only stayed here one night while passing through Kuta but would 100% stay again. The rooms, gardens, and pool are beautiful and the location is great. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby and only 15 mins to the airport depending on traffic. Friendly staff and good food and service at the restaurant.
Thank you for taking the time to write us a wonderful review. Hope to welcome you back for a longer stay sometime.
