I seldom give "excellent" rating for my tripadvisor review, my highest review score usually "very good". However, having stayed in Sheraton Bandung Hotel & Towers (this is a featured post, please see disclaimer below), I gave my tripadvisor review on Sheraton Bandung an "excellent" rating.
For our family, Sheraton Bandung succeeded to get the title of "The Best Family Hotel in Bandung". There are lot of things why this hotel deserve such a title.
I listed 10 of them:
|Super cool pool at the middle of the hotel|
1. Spacious Room: Even For The Four of Us
We stayed at the Towers Room, on the same floor as the Towers Lounge. From its name: Sheraton Bandung Hotel & Towers, there are rooms located in the hotel area, as well as rooms in the Towers area.
Our room is very spacious, it has a king bed and a round shape sofa. Even with an extra bed, the room was still spacious. It's perfect for a family stay:)

Other thing we love from our Towers Room is the balcony with a view to Dago valley. I woke up in the morning and enjoy the sunshine with a cup of tea.
|Good morning world:)|
2. Lovely Pool for The Whole Family
We love the pool area so much. It is uniquely shaped, with one pool for adult and the other one for toddler. Not too mention those white little cabana in a shape of Hersheys' Kisses chocolate!

3. Horse Riding on Weekends
Sheraton Bandung provides horses for the children on weekends. We found one horse on Saturday, and two on the following day. Our kiddos have never enjoyed the horse riding before, but in Sheraton, kiddos were able to ride the horses by themselves. Ooh, look at those happy faces!
The horse riding area is located near the Playground of Sheraton. There's ample space where children would enjoy the horse riding activities so much.
4. Kids Give Away: A Personal Touch from Sheraton
Upon arrival, we received welcome drink and cookies at our room ((Surprise!)) Not only that, there were two bags for our kiddos, which contains teddy bears with their names, drawing book, a box of crayon and drink bottles. Thank you Sheraton!
|Strawberry juice, hot chocolate, and the cookies!|
|We will take these teddy bears on our|
family travel exploring Indonesia and the world:)
5. Kids Menu on Breakfast and Lunch Buffet
Sheraton is really serious in making their hotel as a family hotel. On the buffet menu, there will be one station especially for kids, providing ice cream, marshmallow, lolipops, cookies, Oreo milkshake and donuts.
Our kiddos enjoyed the buffet lunch and breakfast so much, that they refuse to take the breakfast at Towers Lounge. Kiddos#2 who is 5 years old, even took his food by himself, as he was really comfortable with the friendly and helpful staffs of Sheraton.
|Ice cream for breakfast, why not said kiddos#2:p|
|Which one will he choose?|
6. Play at Sheraton
Playground is heaven for all children, and Sheraton has it both indoor and outdoors! The playground equipment is well maintained, and so does the toys inside the "Play at Sheraton".
The staffs will keep the children busy, and you can relax at the gazebo located not far from the playground.
7. Cooking Class and Free Flow Ice Cream on Sunday
Did I say FREE FLOW ICE CREAM?
YES! It is free for your kids at the kids playground every Sunday only.
|Yes, chocolate ice cream!|
Kiddos also join the cooking class that Sunday, whereas they made pancake with maple syrup. Well, the pancake and donuts were provided, kids only have to add toppings for the pancake or donuts. It is still fun for them though.

8. Amazing Bathroom with A Huge Bathtub
When we first saw the bathtub in the bathroom, kiddos directly request to have a bath. I would do the same, If I were the kids. The bathtub is huge!
Bandung was raining after we arrived at Sheraton, so the bathtub was a substitute for the pool that day.
|Huge bathroom, huge bathtub and a shower|
While kiddos love the bathtub, I like the raindrop shower! It was indeed a luxury stay:)
9. Beautiful Gardens All Over The Place
This resort has so many beautiful gardens, which make kids have many space to move around. The gardens are beautiful on the afternoon and romantic at night.
10. A Yoga Class For The Parents
Activities provided by the hotel is not only for the kids. They also provide a yoga class at 6.30 pm on Sunday. Frankly speaking, I have never done Yoga before, but as I woke up early in the morning, and our kiddos still asleep, I went to the yoga class, located near the playground.
It was really peaceful to do the yoga in an outdoor listening to the birds and breathe the fresh air of Bandung in the morning. The yoga class at Sheraton had opened my eyes: it was something that I need beside the cardio that I do twice a week.
Now I had signed up for a yoga class in the sport club near my house:D
Thank you Sheraton for the memorable weekend.
