Good midrange family value
Right next door to Sari Beach, this is by far the better deal of the two.
Hotel Puri Raja offers superior and deluxe rooms, with the former in two-storey buildings at the rear of the resort and the deluxe in two-storey lumbung-style lodgings closer to the beachfront. We were only able to see a superior room, but it was a good one. It was spacious, very clean, and had chilled air-con, a well-maintained bathroom and a firm bed with crisp linen. Veranda wasn't huge, but adequate. Gardens are lush with plenty of tall trees and shade and there are two swimming pools to choose from: a rectangular one at rear and a freeform one with wet bar near the beach. The immediate beachfront area is given over to a beachside restaurant which rounds out a pretty good deal for the money. Popular with Australians and a good choice for families looking for hotel-style accommodation by the beach. Recommended.
