If the white sands of Tanjung Benoa are enough reason to attract you to this part of Bali, prepare to be wowed even more. Awaiting you at this corner of the island of the gods is Sol Beach House Benoa, a casual, laid-back hotel with all-inclusive facilities.
Strategically located at one of Bali’s hottest tourist attractions with direct access to the beach, the five-star hotel is a favourite establishment among many of its returning customers. Its “all-inclusive” concept means guests get to enjoy food at all of its restaurants, as well as pool bar, free, 24 hours a day. Sol Beach House Benoa is well known for its great choice of dining. Make sure to reserve a table at the Amarta Italian Restaurant for dinner or sample local and other international dishes at El Patio, its All-Day Dining Restaurant. Also don’t miss the chance to spend some time at the open-air Menega Seaside Restaurant, where you can eat alfresco and let the sea breeze blow your hair. Chill out at Ayodya Lobby Bar or Nelayan Pool Bar while sipping ice-cold drinks and refreshments. [caption id="attachment_36498" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]

There are different inclusive packages based on the room type, which mainly include unlimited meals, snacks, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks, non-motorized sports and many more. Guests are also welcome to play pool, dart, board and table games at Games Room or sing away at Karaoke Room — at no additional charge. “We have been an all-inclusive hotel for so many years. In 2015, we were ranked sixth by the online travel portal TripAdvisor as one of the best all-inclusive establishments in Asia, and even number one in Bali itself,” says Gregorius Mogot, Sol Beach House Benoa Assistant Director of Sales. Also among the accolades the 21-year-old establishment has proudly collected are the Earth Check Platinum Certificate for ten consecutive years and membership within the Green Pearls Unique Places, a platform for environmentally sustainable hotels and resorts all over the globe. It also continues to practice the 3R policy to reduce, reuse and recycle, adding to a commitment to be environmentally friendly.
“We’re very proud of our waste management system which allows the waste to be recycled and transformed into compost for the hotel’s gardens and plants. In each room, we have installed both fans and air conditioner so that guests can choose whether they want to sleep with the windows open and enjoy the natural night wind with the fan on or use the AC. Providing those options lets us save energy,” says Mogot. That said, there are plenty of reasons why guests would feel right at home at Sol Beach House Benoa, and rightly so. It’s definitely the place to be to rejuvenate body and soul, and actually feel good about helping save the environment.
