On our yearly visit to Bali, The Wife decided to stay at the Padma Resort Bali at Legian. Tripadvisor gave it 4.5 out of 5. The Wife choose it because it is family-friendly. The location is walking distance from the bustling and claustrophobic atmosphere of Kuta. Shops and restaurant are located just outside the hotel, which means we can go for local food and buy mineral water without a problem.
The hotel ground is quite expansive. There are 2 swimming pools. the one that we normally go to is the Lagoon pool as it has the Kiddy pool there. One event that we look forward to is the Koi fish feeding session. There are 2 sessions daily, 9am and 5pm. During our stay, we were the only family on the 5pm session. So the Concierge gave us the fish food and we fed it ourselves. The hotel is surrounded by small ornamental pools with lots of koi fishes. We fed them all.

It is quite a good hotel. Service is good and food is good too. The daughter loves the pool and the koi pond. I love the architecture of the buildings and how it retains the Bali style in it. I would definitely come again.
