Bottom Line

The 150-room Bali Tropic is a family-friendly, upscale all-inclusive with gorgeous traditional Balinese architecture and beautiful tropical gardens. Rooms are spacious and charming, with four-poster beds, lots of ornate wood and stone carvings, and amenities such as flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi and lightly stocked minibars. All units have furnished terraces and large bathrooms with walk-in showers and separate stone tubs. The property has three restaurants, including one by the beach open 24/7, and two bars, but food gets mixed reviews. There is also a decent fitness center, a relaxing spa, and a large pool with a swim-up bar and a kiddy section. Those looking for something more contemporary may want to compare rates at Sadara Boutique Beach Resort.

Oyster Hotel Review

Bali Tropic Resort and Spa


Beautiful resort with lush tropical grounds and lots of local charm

Set on over seven acres of lush tropical grounds, the Bali Tropic Resort & Spa has a tranquil atmosphere. White and black-stone paths wind through gardens bursting with frangipani, bougainvillea, and palm trees, and traditional Balinese pavilions with sloping roofs and large wooden verandas sprawl out along them. Access to the property is through a striking painted carved-wood door similar to the entrances of traditional Balinese temples. On either side, serene ponds with small rock waterfalls, lilies, and tons of gorgeous tropical plants set the tone for the rest of the resort. The lobby is housed in a large open pavilion with white columns, gleaming floors, wood-and-thatch ceilings, and lovely wood carvings throughout. Several rattan couches with yellow cushions offer plenty of seating, while soaring ceilings with openings keep the space cool. The front desk is an artwork in itself, with wonderful carvings featuring painted frangipani flower motifs, and a ornate piece reminiscent of ancient Bali temples. 

With its quiet vibe and romantic feel, the property is mostly popular with couples and honeymooners, but its many daily activities, kids’ club, shallow beach, and spacious rooms make it a convenient pick for families as well.

Beachfront location in the Tanjung Benoa area, near a few restaurants and shops

The Bali Tropic is located on a main thoroughfare in the Tanjung Benoa area. There are a few small restaurants, a number of spa parlors, and some other hotels nearby, but little else of interest within easy walking distance. The hotel offers free shuttle service several times a day to Bali Collection, an area a five-minute drive away known for its shopping and dining. Many more dining, shopping and nightlife options, as well as a livelier atmosphere, can be found in Seminyak, located a half-hour away. The famous Waterblow can be reached in about 10 minutes, and it's a 20-minute drive to the town of Kuta. Uluwatu Temple is about a 40-minute drive away. The property is 20 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Spacious rooms with lots of local details and upscale bathrooms

The hotel has a total of 150 rooms, all air-conditioned and housed in large two-story traditional buildings with pitched roofs and wooden verandas. Decor is simple but charming, with lots of wood carvings, gleaming beige floors, and wooden ceilings. Four-poster beds with thick mosquito nets made of natural fabrics add local charm, and burgundy or caramel accents in throw pillows, curtains, and bed runners are elegant touches. Some areas are starting to look a little worn, but rooms are clean and generally well maintained. 

Flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, electric kettles, safes, and lightly stocked minibars are standard amenities, and all rooms have terraces or balconies furnished with wooden chairs and a table. Bathrooms are spacious and upscale, with walk-in showers and separate stone tubs, and an array of hotel-brand toiletries. Suites have living rooms and up to two bedrooms. Street-facing rooms may get some noise, so light sleepers may want to request a unit overlooking the gardens.

Sandy beach, large pool, three restaurants, spa, fitness center, and kids’ club

The hotel has direct access to a sandy beach with calm waters. The area for swimming is small, and it is too shallow when the tide is low, but there are several loungers and a wide array of water sports available. All-inclusive rates include free non-motorized water sports, but parasailing, banana boat rides, and jet skiing are an extra fee. The pool is large and appealing, with lots of padded loungers, shaded areas, a kiddy section, and a swim-up bar. There are three restaurants on-site serving Indonesian and international cuisine, but food gets mixed reviews in all of them. A nice breakfast buffet is offered free of charge every morning. Massages, treatments for couples, scrubs and facials are available at the spa, and the fitness center has a few cardio and strength-training machines for a basic workout. The hotel also offers daily fitness and cultural activities, a kids’ club, and free Wi-Fi.
