Great rooms, good food
On a bend in the road between Padang Padang and Uluwatu, Padang Padang Breeze presents a bunch of simple but stylish and characterful rooms set behind their popular roadside restaurant.
Occupying brick longhouses, the Standard rooms sit along the path leading from the road, while the Deluxe and Family rooms form two rows facing each other perpendicular to the block of Standards. What is left between is not a lot of space, but the white pebble-tiled paths offer colourful plantings and furnished terraces are pleasant for relaxing—think old style homestay layout given a stylish facelift but still retaining a relaxed surfer vibe.
This cosmetic surgery continues to the interiors with modern tasteful decor. All rooms are similarly styled adding a dash of pizzazz with Deluxe rooms offering a bigger bed and more space than the Standards and Family rooms with an even larger footprint and two double beds. Air-con interiors are bright and clean with white pained exposed brick walls and sandy coloured floors. White-painted brick platforms form the beds, topped with comfy mattresses. Corner supports create a four-poster effect to hold the romantic styled mozzie nets and a large mirror with a whitewashed carved wooden frame becomes a stylish bedhead. Snowy white sheets, ikat throw cushions and runners enhance the look, although no bedside lighting is provided. Add a bamboo ladder or two, some whitewashed wooden storage and the style is topped off.
Clean, long and narrow ensuite bathrooms take the opposite design approach to the mostly white rooms, with dark grey tiled floors and black tiled walls. Though no bench space is available and the washbasin is tiny, hot showers, a large mirror and a towel rack are provided.
Breakfast is included in the rate and word is it’s pretty good with many delicious options. The restaurant is known for their barbecue seafood but if you get bored with their selection, it’s a ten-minute walk in either direction for other food options.
Staff were a little vague when we popped in, but very friendly. Surf lessons, transport and laundry can all be procured here too. We think Padang Padang Breeze offers great value for the Standard and Deluxe rooms, and although the Family rooms are plenty spacious, for the rate you may expect a pool—check out Kampung Jimba or Pinkcoco Hotel instead.
Padang Padang Breeze also has a newer sister property that does provide a swimming pool, but is a somewhat pricier option—Uluwatu Breeze Village, and although we didn’t get to see the rooms as they were fully booked, it looked excellent from the outside.
