The trio Berry titled hotel located at Kuta area might interest your sight, let you think of what’s the different between them. Berry Hotel which located at strategic area of Jalan Dewi Sri looked so budget friendly while Berry Biz Hotel which lies on the hustle bustle of big Sun Set Road suits more for business convenience. The two others berry’s seemed so casual but the last one, Berry Glee Hotel stand out with playful and fun concept, giving a one stop experience for your vacation in Kuta.
What’s inside? I captured and wrote it for you! Keep reading 🙂
WHAT’S WITH THE GLEE?
Glee simply means fun & happiness and this is what Avilla Hospitality managed to do with Berry Glee’s concept. If you pass through Jalan Raya Kuta, the hotel will catch your eyes with their colorful retro style building. Entering the lobby area, you’ll find a playful decoration all over the places — very photogenic for those who like to take a shot! Their lobby is an open air lobby so there is no smoking restriction or sense of cool from air conditioner. On the up side right, you’ll find internet corner complete with computer PC and a mini bar.
THEMATIC ROOM THAT BLOWN YOUR EYES
The glee didn’t only showed up in their building concept and lobby, but also passed through all of their rooms. The hotel indeed differ it self in the hospitality market by providing thematic room concept. Yes, all of the rooms built in its own thematic decoration that will blown your eyes!
I got a small tour to see how their thematic rooms has been designed and it was my pleasure as well to have a little look inside. From all of the rooms, they have three most popular thematic room which is equal to suite room — they are movie, wonderland, and music thematic.
p.s I was having my stay-cation at Movie thematic room so I’ll give more pictures for this room!
The movie thematic room dominated with white and blue painted wall. Half cartoon and half vintage decoration well covering the place. The thematic design was totally all out, from the old Australian flag tables, animal rug, wall frames decoration, Marlyn Manroe wallpaper, to it’s vintage lamps, pillow and bed cover — all have been set to enhance the movie concept.
What I like the most from the room was it’s super spacious size. The room completed with dining area (tables and refrigerator), living room area (comfy sofas, LCD TV), a huge bathroom (with closets, bath tub, and shower room) and a balcony facing to swimming pool.
Other interesting room that will definitely took every girl’s heart is wonderland thematic room. Once the door open, you will stepped in into a fairyland — with pinky painted room, grassy carpet, girly decorations and stuffs, cute small tend with fairy-tale typical dolls and twinkle lamp. This was all girls dreaming of, so boys… I could say this is the perfect place to celebrate something special with your beloved ones. Throw a surprise here and all girls will fall for it! (hope my bf read this, finger crossed! :p)
While wonderland suit the girls, I could say this music thematic room likely will suits the boy. The room is more masculine than others — with leather sofas, music equipment table, persian rug, musician decorations, wallpaper and stuffs. A passionate room for passionate people.
All of thematic suite room above priced around IDR 1.5-2 million/night. Others type options also available such as superior room (typically standard budget room,the most cheapest one range around IDR 370k/night), deluxe suite (more spacious size than superior room), family room (with more beds in the room, enable to accommodate 4 people at once).
GLEE YOUR STOMACH UP?
Here it comes to the foods!
Berry Glee Hotel Kuta Bali has only one restaurant named Keller’s, located at the first floor right beside the swimming pool. Just like the lobby, Keller’s also built in open door area so there is no sense of air conditioner inside. Space is not that big, — goes after the lobby to the back and completed with a pool games and LCD TV. The plug outlet in the restaurant is limited but WiFi is fast.
Breakfast menu in Keller’s was standard in taste and choices. The typically breakfast buffet menu suits more to domestic and Asian. But the good point is, they provide choices for vegetarian like salad and red bean in sauce. English breakfast also available but in limited choice, such as toast and croissants.
Just like any other hotel, the restaurant serve all day dining after breakfast. Most of the menu for all day dining are more to Western. I had my after lunch snack with a quick grab of Beef Nachos and Meat Lover Pizza. Both tasted just fine for sharing plates.
Oh, I just had a small scroll on their instagram and found that their Salmon with Lemon Beer looked so tempting. Maybe on my next visit?
HAVING GLEE ON…
Unlike any other hotel, Berry Glee has its own Karaoke room named Funpods and every booked of hotel room in their web (min 2 night stay) will let you to get free 30 minutes karaoke for FREE *yeaah*. The karaoke rooms are all thematic as well and located in every level. If you didn’t book the room for two days or did’t have reservation through their web, you still could enjoy singing by booking it directly to the hotel with some charge. Price per hour at Funponds is quite affordable, but not after office hours (18.00-00.00). You can check the detail price about Fundpods here. Funponds is also open for public.
Berry Glee’s swimming pool is another place to spend your time in the hotel. This semi indoor pool was so huge, enable you to enjoy your swimming and even playing some water games. But as I’ve seen, there is no place for sunbathing at the place.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION YOU SHOULD KNOW
Location and Transportation
Berry Glee Hotel Kuta Bali located at Jalan Raya Kuta, but it still needs around 20 minutes (around 3,5 km) to get Kuta Beach, Poppies, and friends. Reaching those places will need you to take some transportation (since it’s a bit far to reach by walk). Booking a room through their website will enable you to get free shuttle to Kuta area twice a day. Just make sure for this free service at the detail of your booking or contact the hotel first since terms and condition applied.
Besides, the hotel also provide tour charter and drop of to the area you wanted. Below are the list of place and price that they charge for the transportation service.
The hotel indeed located at Kuta’s main road. Around the hotel you could find some Spa houses and cheap eats at Indonesian traditional restaurant (warung). My recommendation for eat is the famous Ayam Betutu Gili Manuk at Central Park area, located around 5 minutes by walk. Besides, at those area you could also find Babi Guling Chandra and Giant to buy some daily needs. Going pass the Central Park, to Jalan Dewi Sri (10 minutes walk, around 1km), you can also have a dine in Dewi Sri Food Court that offer you many choices of foods preferences. Convenience store like Alfamart located around 3 minutes walk.
Quick question for closing this review: What’s memorable to me during my stay-cation at the hotel?
And spacious room. And bath tub.
