Dynasty Resort

Located about 10 - 20 minutes drive from Denpasar Ngurah Rai International airport, Bali Dynasty Resort in Indonesia is a comfortable, casual family resort that is located next to Kuta Beach, within 10 minutes walking distance from Discovery Shopping Mall and Waterbom Bali, multiple international restaurants and bars offering all types of cuisine, and several fashion and beauty outlets. Dynasty Resort itself offers plenty for families to do or see, and a large proportion of its guests are from Australia.

Ambience within Dynasty Resort is casual and laid-back. Staff are dressed in traditional everday Balinese clothing, and the decor incorporates traditional Balinese and Indonesian carvings, woodwork, sculptures and paintings amid lush greenery. While brightly lit, the interior of the hotel is huge, and it's easy to get lost the first time you're here. The entrance to Dynasty Resort is flanked by the iconic 'Split Gates' of Bali, with intricate carvings meant to welcome guests.

I stayed in the Deluxe Room at Dynasty Resort. The room is medium-sized, with a small attached balcony overlooking either the pool, or lush greenery outside. There are several amenities like toiletries, ironing board, and cutlery provided. I like that Dynasty Resort folded a cute towel elephant to welcome guests, and that the cupboards and desk are large and spacious.

Food at Dynasty Resort is above average in general. There are a variety of options to choose from, including the default buffet breakfast place SEN5ES, and Cafe Piazza, which serve both Indonesian and International cuisine. There is a distinct lack of a variety of traditional Indonesian of Balinese cuisine in the surrounding area, as most places here cater to the Western tourist demographic.

Service at Dynasty Resort is welcoming and friendly. I noticed that Dynasty Resort is an equal opportunity employer, as the staff includes 'smaller' people. However, staff are rarely on standby to assist, ou normally have to call them at the reception counter, even if you're using the conference rooms. But requests do get carried out quickly, and staff also check on how your experience is going.

Facilities & Activities
The facilities at Dynasty Resort are well maintained and numerous, you practically never have the leave the premises because there are multiple activities everyday. A daily schedule of events is hung in every room, and you can partake in activities as diverse as yoga to trapeze. Furthermore, the beach is just behind Dynasty Resort, and is easily accessible. Areas are allocated solely for kids, or teens. Downtown Denpasar and Kuta are also within minutes of Bali Dynasty Resort.
