Grand Hyatt Bali opened in 1991 and was last renovated in 2015. With a total of 636 rooms, this is the largest hotel in Indonesia!

Like Hyatt Regency Bali, this is a Category 2 Hyatt property, requiring 8,000 points (worth S$160) per night for award stays. Once World of Hyatt introduces off-peak nights, a night at this hotel will only cost 6,500 points (worth S$130) on some days. That would be a great deal once full service resumes!

Because of the pandemic, the hotel was closed for a few months and re-opened just a few days before my stay.

Location

The hotel is located in Nusa Dua, a quiet area in south-eastern Bali. The long stretch of beach in this area is mostly connected to 5-star hotels like Ritz-Carlton, Sofitel, Hilton and Apurva Kempinski. It is less crowded (as compared to Seminyak beach) as it faces East (no sunset view). That’s not a bad thing as it is usually very quiet; perfect for evening walks/runs/cycles.

Arrival

Upon arrival, we had our temperatures taken and were assisted with our luggages before being directed to the reception.

I had booked the base King room and was pre-upgraded to the Club Executive Suite two days before arrival, as a Globalist member.

The room (Club Executive Suite)

Room 2242 is 141sqm / 1,517sqft in size. It looked to be very well-maintained for an old property. Although, the small television with bad signal needs to be replaced.

Breakfast

Breakfast is complimentary for Globalist members and was served as à la carte buffet at Garden Café from 6.30 to 11.30am. We were allowed to have breakfast in the room and chose that option every day, of course.

Club lounge replacement

The club lounge was closed during my visit because of the low occupancy. As an alternative, I can enjoy complimentary food and drinks from a fixed menu from 5pm to 7pm daily at Veranda Lounge. I could also get complimentary drinks all day long.

Food quality during happy hour was very good but I wish that it wasn’t the same menu every day.

The gym

The gym was small for a property this big. Equipment looked old too.

Bottom line

I enjoyed walking around this beautiful resort and the huge beach connected to it. This would be a lovely sweet spot with only 6,500 points (worth S$130) required for off-peak nights in future.
