Bali Dynasty Resort Kuta Review

Bali Dynasty Resort Kuta

Staying at Bali Dynasty Resort for 1 night in August 2018 was a great way to check out the resort. It was my last night of my solo trip to Bali without the kids and the Dynasty were kind enough to host me for the night. I was able to explore the resort and chatted to Mum’s and Dad’s about how their kids were enjoying their stays. One thing was certain, this was perhaps one of the most kid friendly resorts in Bali. So many activities for the kids and the family rooms come at a great price. If you would like to book your next Bali family holiday at Bali Dynasty Resort Kuta use this link to book directly with them.

Overview of Dynasty Hotel Bali

Located just a 5-10 minute drive from the Bali Airport, the Bali Dynasty Resort is a kids paradise. With kids clubs and activities for a range of ages, the kids have a blast at this fun hotel. Not located directly on the beach, it’s only a 50 metre walk from the back gate to the beach club run by the resort. While not in the centre of Kuta, there is still a range of shopping malls nearby and Waterbom waterpark is a 650 metre walk from the front of the resort.

Please take note of the accommodation details for each room on the Dynasty website. Also check out this map provided on their website with even more detail about each wing, click this link here. This gives information on what level the rooms are situated on. For example all of the kids suite rooms are facing a garden on the ground floor.

Bali Dynasty Resort Rooms

The Dynasty website has great details of each room and here I will list the 4 different family room types that I viewed/stayed in:

Deluxe Pool View

I stayed in this room in August 2018. Loved the view of the pool from the balcony and when the doors were closed most of the noise from the pool was blocked out. If you are after an extra quiet room if you have a bub or toddler that needs quiet during the day to sleep, I would choose a garden facing room. The room was a good size and up to 2 adults and 2 kids can stay in the room (note: there is an extra cost for the kids and the 4th occupant must be under 6 years old). The bathroom was an ok size with a shower only and glass screen. I loved that the activities for each day and the next were posted on the bathroom mirror. Fridge and tea/coffee making facilities with the TV having a few kids channels. The beds were good and I had no problem sleeping.

Kids Suites

These were one of my favourite rooms that I viewed as I loved that they were quiet and faced onto a lovely garden. Beautiful spot to sit and enjoy a drink while the kids are in bed. The included bath was a bonus but did have a shower curtain which can always be fun with kids! The play station was an added bonus of the kids suites.

Family Pool View

Location is perfect if you want easy access to the main pool area. Only steps away from jumping straight into the pool, these would be perfect for families that want to be near all of the action. Beautiful terrace with a couple of chairs to enjoy a drink while the kids are in bed.

Family Studio

If you are after easy access to the street these family rooms are the best choice. No pool noise from these rooms but they do overlook the entrance to the hotel. Only a couple of minute walk to the pools and kids club. These rooms are slightly bigger than the other family rooms of similar design but do not have a bathtub.

Facilities at Bali Dynasty Resort Hotel

The kids are well looked after at the Bali Dynasty Kids Club and the 2 pools with one including a waterpark with waterslides is sure to delight the younger kids. A playground suitable for kids under 10 years and under is fenced so perfect for runners like our son Mason.

Here are some photos I took of the different areas:

Main Pool

The main pool was a great size and families were having a great time with a pool bar keeping parents happy! It can get busy around the pool with lots of families enjoying the facilities. There is a shallower area for the kids to play in but at times they did have activities in this area.

Kids Pool with splash park and waterslides

The kids pool area is a lot of fun but not a huge space for a lot of kids. It is open from 8am-6pm and the water zone and water slides open from 9am-6pm. You can tell it has been well used over the years by kids but all the kids were having a great time including the activities that the staff were running. The kids can not access the kids club from this area even though it is adjacent to the kids club.

Lazy Pool (Adults only zone)

Being without the kids I managed to escape to the adults only pool. It was quite chilly though as I don’t think it gets much sun! Also you could still hear all the kids at the main pool.

Kids Playground

The area for the kids with slides, swings and other entertainment was fantastic especially for younger kids. The best part was the enclosed fence so you could let them run around and have fun without worrying about them escaping.

Kupu-Kupu Kids Club (Kids aged 4-12yrs)

The kids club was full with kids when I had a look through. Well set up for kids, they were just leaving to go on an activity with the staff. Kids are welcome under the age of 4 years but must be accompanied by a nanny. Parents are not allowed, at the time of writing, to accompany their kids in the kids club. They also have kids movie nights on Thursday and Saturday nights.

Ashoka Spa

I don’t often use hotel spas as I find they can be expensive and not great value for money. I was pleasantly surprised by the spa at the Dynasty Resort. I thoroughly enjoyed my massage and was a great space to escape from the kids around the pool. After 6pm there was a discount so perfect to use once the kids are in bed! My 1 hour Balinese massage was 236,000rp or approx. $23AUD. Without the discount it would be 295,000rp or approx. $29AUD.

Market at Bali Dynasty Resort

Each night from 6:30pm outside the Gracie Kelly’s pub and Cafe Piazza was a market set up. If shopping out in the chaos of Kuta is too much this is a great way to get souvenirs or gifts.

Bali Dynasty Resort Restaurants

As I was only at the resort for 1 night I couldn’t try out all the restaurants. The Bali Dynasty website has details of all the restaurants/cafes available.

Breakfast at Sen5es

Open 6am-10:30am

I enjoyed the buffet breakfast at Sen5es restaurant and appreciated the air conditioning after my early morning walk. I ordered a latte that was a $2aud charge and it was ok to drink. There was a good range including facilities for the kids like high chairs and plastic cups.

H20 (Breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Open 7am-10pm

I didn’t eat at H20 but did enjoy a cocktail while the band was playing on the upper deck. For breakfast, guests staying in the family rooms have access to this restaurant. Each night is a different themed buffet and kids aged 12 years and under eat for free from the buffet when with a full paying adult (which at time of writing was 235,000rp per adult).

Gracie Kelly’s (Irish Pub)

Open 11am – midnight

For dinner I chose Gracie Kelly’s which is designed as a traditional Irish pub and had the most friendly staff. The food was good and Bintang was cold. They have live bands each night and a big TV screen for sporting events.

I ordered a latte from the Cafe and it was delicious. Great spot for a coffee and cake during the day.

Golden Lotus (Chinese Restaurant)

I didn’t eat at the Chinese Restaurant but had a look with the photos I took below.

Room service menu

Kids needing to chill out in the room and you can’t be bothered to go out for dinner, the room service menu has something for every hour of the day. Perfect for landing after a late night flight.

Sunset Bar (near the adults only pool)

Open daily from 12pm-8pm they have happy hours at this bar and on different nights have live music.

Bali Dynasty Resort Beach Club

The resort is not directly on the beach but a short 50 metre walk to the private beach club. Here are a few photos and video of getting to the beach club.

If you are trying to find supplies for when you arrive, at the entrance turn right and about 100 metres up the street you will find the 24 hours Coco Mart. Here are a few photos of the kind of things they have.

Extra info about the resort

Loved the activity list posted on the bathroom mirrors each day!

Final thoughts on staying at Bali Dynasty Resort

The resort is perfect for kids that love to be entertained and always have something to do or kids to meet. Once you are in the resort, it doesn’t feel like you are in Kuta. I love how the family rooms are great value and would recommend staying with the kids. Can’t wait to take the family back for a longer stay this time!

Feel free to join our Facebook Group. It is full of Mum’s and Dad’s planning their next Bali family holiday with a huge amount of information.
