Ritz-Carlton Bali Hotel Review

Bali is one the most popular destination in the world. It has everything that Hawaii that could offer with a lot cheaper price. This time I had the chance to stay in one of the most luxurious property in Bali. This property is located in Nusa Dua area, far from the crowd and really nice area if you are looking for quiet and relaxing place.

Location

It will take 45 to 60 minutes to this Resort from Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). The area does not have many restaurants or bars, I would suggest to stay in this Resort if you are on Honeymoon or retreat from the city life.

Booking

The average room will costs around $200/night and the suite rooms starting from $270, which is very affordable for Ritz-Carlton. I used my 40,000 Marriott points to stay at this location, which is one of the options if you have a lot of points. I was able to book Sawangan Suite (100 Sqm).

Check-in

This resort has really nice lobby area. I was amazed by the architecture and the view from the lobby area. I got upgraded to bigger suite room with the size of 145 Sqm ($445/night) because I have Ambassador Elite status. The staff then took me in a golf cart to my suite. It could take 20 minutes to walk from my suite to the elevator to the lobby.

The Hydro Vital Pool has 5 different areas. Each area gives different part of body water massage.

The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place Review

This place is my favorite hotel in Jakarta. Located on top floors of Pacific Place mall in financial district in the city. Really convenient location if you are traveling for work or shopping.

I got the upgraded room in the corner of the building, a perk of being Marriott Rewards Elite member.

They have very luxurious bath room and nice view of Jakarta downtown.

Make sure you choose the club access when you book the room, because the foods there are really amazing. They serve the food 5 times in a day. The schedule is listed below:

My girlfriend and I were enjoying our dinner plus the nice view of Jakarta.

Spacious walk in closet

They also have complimentary shoe polishing service. 🙂
