Bali: Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Kuta

The Lobby

The receptionists were very friendly, and we were served some ice popsicles as our welcome refreshments. Very interesting. 

Deluxe Lagoon Access Room

Shower. No rain shower, very basic.

The room is spacious, with a strong Balinese theme to it. We were very excited with the pool access, but was disappointed to find out you can only access the pool from the morning till evening. Oh well, the water was too cold anyway. :)

The pool deck, right beside the room

With all the floating beanbags, we finally got the chance to jump into the pool and chill the morning away. Perfect photo moments.

Shuttle bus schedule for hotel guests

There could be more timings though, as it isn't easy to hail for cabs due to the hotel's location. You can try hailing Grab or Uber, but do so discreetly. 

Restaurant- the al fresco section


Making our own eggs on brioche...

Just some pics of their fancy restroom

There was a good spread during the morning buffet, and the servers are pretty friendly. 

What we think:
Other than the location being slightly difficult to access, as it's situated on a narrow road. It took quite a while for the cabs to horn incoming traffic and slowly chug in. Other than that, the place is great for travellers who want to stay at a well-known hotel group, at a lower cost.

Is it worthwhile to book the Pool Access room? Well, if you intend to explore the rest of Bali, it might not be worth the money, as your room curtains has to be constantly drawn, as other guests can swim over to your room. Which means you can't really have a pool view when you are in the room. But the cost was quite comparable to the regular rooms, so we thought we'd have a try staying at such rooms :)
