We stayed at Febris for 1 month in a family room which is a great size! Although could do with more cupboard space, for 4 grow ups. This was our 3rd time staying at Febris.We find there location for teenage kids is fantastic,as its close to waterbom park, centro shopping mall and a ten min walk to Kuta art market. The hotel itself is very clean but basic. It has everything you need though. The only thing i would say is check that the construction has finished, it did drive us crazy to start with, but i think by the end of the month we got used to it. The construction started at 8.15am and finished at 8pm, so it goes all day. But i will add this is out of the hands of Febris and in no way did we blame the gorgeous staff of febris. I think we had breakfast about 7 days out of 30, as its the same every day, maybe they should change it every now and then. They did have something for everyone. The massages are to die for and great value for money...the hot stone massage is a must! Room service is great with a fairly large menu. There is a small pool right out the back of hotel which not to many people know about, but is very cold as in the shade. The large pool area is great with plenty of room for everyone. They have a bell to ring for service around the pool as well. There are so many great resturants around Febris at great price's, my fav is Queens of India opps febris, if you like spicy food you must go there. Traffic is a night mare if you want to go to the other end of town, say Seminyak, allow 1 hour in a taxi. Most cab rides around town are about $5000 ruip. Would i stay at Febris again? Yes i sure would, but maybe not for a month.

Thanks so much for your recent stay at the Febri's. I can't thank you enough for being a repeat guest for a 3rd time and for staying for 1 month this time.
In future, please feel free to ask your room attendant for extra shelves if you need more cupboard size. Our housekeeping team always has spare wooden shelves (mini cupboards) in case guests need.
June and September is a "winter" season in Bali as well as in Melbourne. Although the water is not as cold but it is much colder as compared to other months. You probably notice that the water on the beach is also much colder (because it is also very windy during these 4 months).
The food menu on the breakfast buffet is rotated daily (with details outlined in the official hotel website). Indeed, the weekly menu has not been revamped much since the past 2 years except for the new additions such as fresh pancakes, croissants, pork bacon and occasional Balinese sweets. I realize that for 1 month stay, the buffet can get boring. On your next visit, please feel free to approach me or my new Restaurant Manager. He was recently promoted to become the Restaurant Manager from being a Kitchen Supervisor since the hotel opening. I am sure he will be more than happy to make something different specially for you and your family members.
The constructions at next door hotels are not as noisy as before (although the activities can be disturbing from time to time). Hopefully they will soon be completed before the year end as scheduled. While road works around Kuta are unfortunately still on-going for at least another year especially with the centralized sewage systems along our streets, the airport renovations and the underpass project in the high way adjoining Nusa Dua, Kuta and Sanur. All hotels in the areas have been anxiously waiting for its completion so that we will have a better infrastructure for this booming tourism.
On behalf of all the staff and management teams, I look forward to meeting you in person on your next Bali holiday.
