Pelangi is one of those hidden gems in Bali, located in the quiet neighborhood of Semiyak, north of Kuta and Legion that are frequented by touristists. The trade off is that you have to walk about 150 meters/500 feet to the nearst convenience store or getting a taxi. Not a bad tradeoff to me.
The rooms are quite large and comfortable, equipped with a balcony you can get a glimps of ocean. The swimming pool deck and open terrace of the restaurant are well designed to fit nicely to each other. If not close enough to the ocean, just walk a few steps, you are on the beach with all the beach restaurant and bars, very civilized, not crazy like those in Kuta.
Super nice of this hotel is that it allows to use a so called hospitality room after you check out, which is basically a regular hotel room that you can shower and rest before heading to the airport. It was a life saver for me after a exhuasting cycling tour of my last day in Bali.
One suggestion is that the airport transportation arranged by the hotel is best for large group with lots of luggage at price of 200K IDR. Regular taxi (Blue Bird) should be less than half of it, but you have to walk 500ft to get one.More
