Absolutely perfect!

We stayed 8 nights in Bali- 4 different hotels- stayed at the Plataran on the last - boy were we sad about that! Wish we would have stayed there our entire visit! The hotel is so comfortable - nothing I would improve. Wayan the manager and all his staff went out of their way to assure we were delighted. I would highly recommend this gem of a hotel.

Nice but remote

Posted Mar 15, 2016 on Hotels
Plataran was nice - all the rooms are villas so you have your own small pool (I never like small pools because not much sun) and a nice day bed on the balcony. The rooms are simple but they have everything you need and are pleasant. The bathrooms are outdoors which is pretty common in Bali but I can't stand because you can't avoid bugs (esp mosquitos). The best part of the resort is the large common pool (there is also a smaller one), it was v rustic and calm - great place to spend the day. The downsides are that Plataran is near nothing, you have to get a cab everywhere, even to places in Canggu. The resort has a van but if you don't reserve in advance it is not always avail. Also the grounds are a bit unkept - I thought it added to the charm but my friend found it messy.

Lovely, Private Villas with Amazing Staff

Posted Jan 20, 2016
Pros: Amazing Service and Facilities
Location: Small taxi Ride to Seminyak Square, but away from all the noise and hustle and bustle of it.
Plataran threw an Amazing Wedding for friends of ours. Majority of the guests, including myself, stayed at the resort. The service and facilities are second to none. Only being a stone throw away from Central areas, this is certainly on of Balis best hideaways. I speak for many when i say we will be back soon, and i look forward to seeing the staff again, who made the experience far exceed my expectations. Thank you again!

Beautiful villas in Canggu. Well maintained property with several pools, gardens, restaurant and spa facilities. Extremely helpful staff. Shuttle to Kuta or approximately 40K Rupiahs to Semyniak by cab.

Beautiful resort

Posted Oct 6, 2014 on Hotels
The staff is very friendly and attended to any needs we had. The resort grounds are beautiful, felt like a Balinese village more than a hotel. There are Mosquitos and they do get into the rooms, and the bathroom, which is outside. Bathing and showering in the outdoor bathroom would have been much more enjoyable without Mosquitos but hey, you're in Bali, there are Mosquitos pretty much wherever you go, just know that before going. Overall I would stay here again.

A Hidden Gem

Posted Nov 26, 2013
Pros: The privacy, the staff, the room, the pools
Cons: Maybe introduce a happy hour to get clients to come to the restaurant, or beside the pools.
Plataran was a lovely oasis among the craziness of Bali. The staff were wonderfully caring. We stayed in a 2 Bedroom Pool Villa for 3 nights (which is actually 2 separate villas, one behind the other) with our 3 and 5 year old boys, who thought it was incredible cool they had their own 'house'. Plataran is around a 10 minute drive from Seminyak, however the resort offers free shuttles at set times. We found the restaurant prices to be a little costly, so ate out for 2 of the 3 nights. We would definitey return to Plataran.

Outstanding and so perfect for so many reasons !

Posted Apr 5, 2013
Pros: Elegant simple and traditional decor. Magnificent gardens, OUTSTANDING Staff and service.
Cons: NOTHING. Every thing is so balanced and in perfect harmony, not one thing is better or worse then the other.
Location: Just minutes north east of Seminyak. There is a shuttle 3 times a day to Seminyak and Kuta. Keep a Plataran map from the lobby to show taxi drivers.
Amazing and so much more !! Elegant, traditional Balinese decor from the lobby to the villas, it is a feast for the eyes. Everywhere you look it's so perfect, not overdone, simple and so so tasteful. The villas are scattered amongst magnificent lush gardens. It is truly a paradise (and not one mosquito!). The staff are the most beautiful, humble and helpful people I have ever met and I will never forget any of them. The food was insanely beautiful and very well priced. They grow their own herbs and the chef is amazing at creating beautiful flavoursome dishes. Having a health/spa on site where you can have massages and then retreat to your villa is the most relaxing, rejuvenating holiday possible. Every night we had little treats left on our back patio. I have travelled to many places and seen many hotels, the Plataran is by far one of my favourites !!

Adventures at Plataran

Posted Nov 1, 2012
Pros: Gardens were lovely
Cons: Room wasn't secure.
Location: Very isolated area, mainly locals and small shops. Really tucked away, taxi drivers got lost a few times. Had to plan the day and use the shuttle.
Lovely place, but too far from Seminyak. Rooms where not secure, Wifi is slow when its corrected, as this is not available all the time. Appears to be turned off from 10pm to 7am. Expensive by Bali standards Nice place to stay if you want to have an expensive holiday and not be disturbed. Staff where pleasant.
