When I think of a boutique hotel in Bali, I imagine that it will be a trendy hotel for people to stay and experience the place. It will be a small, chic stylish hotel and mainly located in an urban setting. And then there’s the Edelweiss Boutique Hotel Bali. The Edelweiss Boutique Hotel is meant to be a destination hotel. However, it feels more like a transit hotel due to its prime location next to the international airport in Bali (where they have a great airport lounge!) and world-famous Kuta Beach. Hotel competition in Bali is fierce, and there are many other great hotels in Bali that can be had for good price and value, namely in Seminyak or even Ubud.

So, where to stay in Bali? For my quick Bali vacations and transit purpose, Edelweiss Boutique Hotel is a great Kuta Beach hotel. This is a great option for cheap hotels in Bali!

A great location – for a quick transit!

The Edelweiss Boutique Hotel Bali is located within a stone’s throw of Ngurah Rai Bali International Airport. It took us less than ten minutes by taxi to be at the front door. If you are on a very tight budget and want to save on taxi fare, you can even walk. Just go north for 20 minutes through a lively road. This is the Kuta Beach main artery. Bali nightlife happens here and the hotel is located next to the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church

During Christmas and New Years, the Edelweiss Boutique Hotel Bali is one of the best places to stay in Bali. If you are looking for both a celebration at Kuta Beach, or attending the English Masses next door, this is a great option.

Booking your room

Although it is possible to do a walk-in to see whether they have an empty room, we always recommend booking in advance. We usually book our hotels with Booking.com, as this is an excellent site to find options for hotels in Bali Indonesia, as well as other Bali deals on Kuta hotels. Check for availability here. You won’t have to pay a deposit to book it. You can pay with a major credit card (usually Visa and MasterCard) or cash at the front desk. Make sure to specify your smoking and non-smoking preference at booking

The curb appeal of the Edelweiss Boutique Hotel feels a little bit wanting. There is barely room for cars to pull up to the front of the property, and there are low hanging electrical wires near the building. If you happen to drive around with a car, you may request a parking spot in the hotel’s parking deck next. It’s right next to the hotel and you can arrange it prior to your arrival.

Like everywhere else in Bali, the staff at this hotel are extremely friendly and polite. There was a bachelorette party in front of us checking in.  Fortunately, the check-in process for them, as well as ours, was reasonable efficient. They found our reservation right away.

The Room and Bathroom

The Deluxe Room layout with twin beds option

There are four different room options you can choose from: the Superior Room, Deluxe Room, Executive Room, and the Junior Suites. The full description of each room can be found at their official website. We opted to book a Deluxe Room with twin beds, as I was traveling with my mom. Although it was laid out efficiently, it was a bit of a tight space. The hotel’s colors of white and orange are splashed throughout the interior of the room. Each room has a 29″ flat screen TV with many international channels. They also have personal safety deposit boxes, mini bars and snacks, and 2 complimentary water bottles per day.

My biggest complaint was the un-hackable air conditioning and electrical system. They use a system where you need to insert the room key to activate the electrical circuit for the room. In a lot of hotels, you can use a credit card or an old room key. Not here. Other cards don’t work to replace the room key card. As a result, you will have to wait for 10-20 minutes after you return to your room before you get a comfortable room temperature.

The bathroom was clean and modern. There was standing room for jet sprayed shower, and it was separated by a small partition. As a result, your bathroom floor will be wet after each shower. An Indonesian style bidet and toilet paper are available for each bathroom. The hotel provides plenty of towels, guest slippers, and complimentary bathroom amenities.

Swimming Pool and Amenity Deck

The Lounge and Swimming Pool

True to the Balinese style, you can find infinity pools at lots of hotels on the island, including here. The lip of the Edelweiss’s swimming pool is constructed at the edge of the deck. Unfortunately, it overlooks the parking lot and the busy street below, instead of a green lush landscape. The pool has a kids section, which is connected to the adult section. Guests can sunbathe on the deck and enjoy adult beverages from the adjacent lounge.
