Review – How to Stay in Bali 25 Nights for Free
When you redeem 5 nights in a row, the fifth night is free, it means that you can stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Bali Ngurah Rai for 25 nights for free.
The hotel is located 500 meters away from the airport & provides complimentary shuttle service between the airport and the hotel. The Hilton Garden Inn Bali Ngurah Rai is only one of two Hilton properties on the island of Bali.
The hotel is in an area that requires you to use transportation to go most anywhere in Bali including the beach which is why I would recommend renting a scooter or using taxis/Ubers if you stay here.
The hotel is relatively central to all areas of the region and you can get to most places within a reasonable time including Kuta, Sanur, and Jimbaran Bay. Taking an Uber to Potato Head Beach Club cost about 4 USD and takes about 30 minutes.
Once in the expansion multi-story open air lobby of the hotel, the check-in counter is located to the right, with a lane for Elite Hilton Honors members on the end.
There are tons are areas for seating as well as an activity information desk which is managed by a third-party company, I found to offer standard tourist activities at somewhat high prices.
First of all, they scan your passport, take a credit card for incidentals, and lastly sign a piece of paper with the whole process taking less than 5 minutes. They are very friendly & smiling receptionist warmly greet you and begin the process of check-in.
As a Hilton Honors Gold member, I was upgraded to a suite on the 3rd floor looking out into the front parking area of the property.
The room was modern with tile floors, neutral colors & plenty of space. The room features a full and a half bathroom, a dining area, small couch with coffee table.
Additionally in the entrance is a credenza with electric kettle & mini fridge, complimentary water, coffee & tea above.
Next a door leads into the bedroom, which featured a king size bed. There was nice towel animal on the bed with a note from the hotel wishing me a pleasant stay. The bed was very comfortable, the 4 large pillows made for an easy night’s rest.
The full bathroom featured a built-in tub and a large rain shower. Toiletries are by Peter Roth Thomas toiletries and include tooth-brush and mouth wash.
The complimentary breakfast was served at The Garden Grill restaurant on the ground floor overlooking the pool area.
A large variety of food offered at breakfast with pastries, yogurt, waffles, bacon/sausages, fruits, made to order eggs, Indonesian & Chinese cuisine dishes, as well as numerous teas/juices.
After breakfast, the restaurant serves lunch and dinner and the hotel has poolside beverage & food service. It’s nice to have the dining area overlooking the pool, especially with such beautiful weather.
The pool area quite beautiful, and it exceeded all my expectations I have for a Hilton Garden Inn. The staff is very friendly, and the hotel presents itself in an upscale manner.
If you to want to stay in Bali for nearly a month for free, just sign-up for the Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express which is offering a lucrative sign up bonus of 100,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points + Gold Elite status after meeting the minimum spend requirements.
