Padma Hotel Bandung Review
Padma Hotel Bandung’s hillside location offers peace and quiet, yet it’s only minutes away from Bandung city. For guests interested in shopping (particularly at factory outlets, which Bandung is know for), there are a number of shopping options nearby.
In addition to its location and beautiful grounds, the hotel is known for its excellent hospitality. Should you need anything at all, the hotel has a 24-hour butler service. Padma Hotel Bandung’s amenities include a spa, outdoor pool, sauna, open-air hot tub, and complete fitness centre.
Padma Hotel Bandung Rooms
The hotel’s rooms, studios, and suites feature wooden flooring, large flat-screen TVs, and views of the hillside, valley, or pool. Deluxe Rooms start at 28 square meters and the Premier Suites are 62 square meters. All rooms have modern bathrooms with showers; some have bathtubs as well. Opt for a hillside view to experience something different. I’m sure most of us don’t live in a place where a forrest is directly outside your window. So embrace staying in a modern tree house.
Breakfast and afternoon tea are included in the room rate, meaning you can stay in and enjoy everything the resort has to offer. The afternoon tea is highly sought after and comes with great freshly-prepared local dishes so you don’t have to go out to taste Bandung’s street food.
Kids Activities at Padma Hotel Bandung
If you have children, Padma Hotel Bandung is a heaven for kids that will provide your little ones with endless activities and fun; they won’t want to leave.
Animal lovers can spend time feeding and petting the bunnies in their cute little farmhouse looking cages. There are also a couple noisy goats on site that would be more than happy to get a snack from you too. Head further up the hill for an alcove of waddling geese.
Kids can try their hands at fishing from a boat shaped pier that extends over a mini fishing pond. Adventurous kids can soar over the grounds on the hotel’s flying fox. With a mini putting green, take the opportunity to teach your children the basics of golf. There are also regularily scheduled kids activities and crafts throughout the day.
