Michael Taylor is currently in Bali, Indonesia, where he is spending three weeks exploring the sights, sampling the food, learning about the culture, and checking out what’s hot and what’s not in one of Southeast Asia’s most exciting travel destinations.
I am staying at 10 properties during his three weeks in Bali. Today he reviews a family friendly resort with a great location.
Three Key Attractons
One of the key attractions of the Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali is its location. First of all, it is located just minutes from Denpasar International Airport – you can actually watch airplanes take off and land from the beach in front of the hotel.
Secondly, it has a beach front location, and – unlike most of the beaches in Bali – you can actually swim at this beach. Thirdly, it is located close to restaurants, entertainment, and shopping.
Family Friendly Resort
The Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali has 195 rooms set amid landscaped gardens. There are two restaurants, a poolside bar, an ice cream parlour, a spa, and facilities for meetings and conferences.
One of the things I liked most about the Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali was the hotel’s unique mini bar concept. The fridges are empty, but there is an on site mini mart with reasonably priced drinks and snacks .
Not only that, it stays open until midnight – just in case you run out of something!
The Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali is a family friendly hotel with family suites, a kids club, and baby sitting services. Most rooms have balconies or terraces.
