The Mason Pine Hotel in Padalarang offers a respite from the hustle, bustle & horrible traffic congestion of Bandung. This is clearly a Family oriented facility. The rooms are well appointed& most have a small balcony. The main attractions for families are the impressive breakfast buffet & the large unique swimming pool. The Breakfast Bufet is impressive by any standard. Eggs cooked to order, hot & cold cereals, crepes, pancakes, cold cuts, salads, rice porridge, assorted juices & smoothies, breads & pastries, krupuk & coffee or tea. What makes this pool unique is that it is a uniform depth (approximately 1.5 meters}. There is no deep end or deeper part of the pool and there is easy access from 3 sides. There is an activity coordinator for the younger children & that gives parents an opportunity to relax & enjoy their leisure time. The lunch & dinner menus list a nice variety of Indonesian & Western offerings. All in all a very pleasant stay
We booked the junior suite and we're not dissappointed as it is spacious and well furnished with king bed, a couch, cushy chairs and two flatscreen TV's. The two balconies face the scenic mountains and greenery. WiFi connection is rather good all over the hotel. A large pool situated next to the restaurant is perfect for laps. Kids have a wet playground to have fun at. The food we had for dinner was great, we had the Rawon and Nasi Tembel. Nice. Manager Wulan made us comfortable and the staff are helpful and very polite. The massage we treated ourselves to was just fabulous and reasonably priced. Free bus rides in and out of Bandung town are offerred daily. We're having a stress-free time here! It's out of Bandung town, so there's less traffic noise here too.
