We enjoyed our time at Taum. Our room was clean and the staff was very attentive. You have to go down stairs the access the restaurant or pool which makes it partially non-accessible for those in wheelchairs or power chairs. It’s a long walk from the curb to your room so beware! We would definitely stay again.

I stayed here for 12 nights on B&B basis and I was treated by staff and management alike like a “royal”, nothing was too much trouble for the team. I was allocated a spacious room with king size bed, yes the room would benefit from a lick of paint and change of tiles and unit fronts,but all in all this is just a cosmetic job.

I stayed here for 12 nights on B&B basis and I was treated by staff and management alike like a “royal”, nothing was too much trouble for the team. I was allocated a spacious room with king size bed, yes the room would benefit from a lick of paint and change of tiles and unit fronts,but all in all this is just a cosmetic job. The room was cleaned thoroughly daily and my bed sheets were changed every 3 days. No complaints here. Food at the restaurant is tasty, and provides value for money. There are a number of other restaurants in close proximity to the Taum which are just as good, however a little more expensive, this is important if your on a budget. The pool is clean and functional, again requires cosmetic work this doesn’t affect your ability swim or sunbathe. Back to the staff you will be hard done by to find staff as dedicated to making your stay as homely and fun packed as this team. I booked a number of tours “again good value”. The driver Ngurah was an excellent driver (as you have to have your wits about you in Bali). Also he was very knowledgeable and passionate when sharing details regarding his country’s historic buildings and artefacts and the country’s culture. I experienced a family issue whilst there and as such had to cut short my holiday and return home. I was required to secure an emergency flight home the staff team did everything possible to support me in this undertaking. Their support and consideration for my welfare at this time will remain with me forever. Human kindness at its best!! I urge anyone who is a solo traveller or family to experience at least a few nights stay at this hotel. You won’t regret it just so you can experience the ambiance and professionalism of the staff who represent what Bali represents as a whole. I will definitely be returning to this country and Taum Resort in due course and without hesitation. In the meantime I’ll relish in the climate of of the British climate 😩 Read less

This resort should NOT be your first option. If you are looking for a luxury exotic Bali style hotel, then this place is definitely not for you.

This resort should NOT be your first option. If you are looking for a luxury exotic Bali style hotel, then this place is definitely not for you. This resort is only a 5th or 6th option if all other resorts are fully booked. Main reasons for how bad this place is: - Their rooftop bar closes too early (9pm) - Their swimming pool/lobby bar also closes too early (10:30pm) - Their rooms are FAR from luxury (rooms require immediate remodeling and upkeep) - Their doors don't close properly, so rooms have many ants and insects - Housekeeping doesn't always replace your towels/toiletries - Water supply regularly shuts off for maintenance, so you wont always be able to shower/use the toilet - When water line comes back, your water will be brown and dirty for about a day. In summary, this resort is cheap in price, so you get what you pay for. I am sure other resorts are just as cheap in price and much better quality. Consider staying elsewhere during your stay in Bali. Read less

I am so happy that we are currently staying here. I am a very skeptical mother and nurse with two asthmatic children and I was so concerned with some of the previous reviews on here. I contacted the resort personally and they assured me. Our flight was delayed 4 hours we turned up at 2am and they were waiting for us. I can not fault this resort. Yes it’s worn around the edges but that’s obviously a good sign that many people before me have enjoyed this place. It is truly an oasis in the middle of chaos! You walk in and are immediately relieved and pleased. It is quiet, calm, child friendly, boutique and the staff are what makes this place! The rooms are very clean and hygienic even though they may need a paint job and some touch up, I know they are clean because my “allergy/asthma” children have not reacted! That to me makes all the Difference. There are multiple small restaurants surrounding Taum that are cheap and wonderful to eat out, it has 2 mini marts right at the door one of which is a small pharmacy it seems, a bar, and a 24 hr medical assistance next door! Guys this hotel may not be the Sheraton or Hilton but this hotel is underestimated and given some really poor reviews for simple not important things. I’m telling you as a mum what’s important and what you want as A mum on holiday is healthy happy kids and parents that is all that matters!! It just so happens the cost is amazing! So good. Thank you for having us over the next 2 weeks Taum. Regards The Vagai family Read less
