Review: At first glance you could be excused for writing off Sing Ken Ken Gym as a hotel buy. But actually, it is open to the public. But at 100,000 INR. this gym is one of the more expensive gyms in Bali.
While the gym is open to the public, it has a very hotel gym feel to it. The gym is clean and the equipment is all fully functional. It is air conditioned and well pretty well stocked for what it is. This gym has:
- Dumbbells upto 25 kg
- Adjustable benches
- A pull up bar
- Chest press machine
- Pec Dec
- Lat pulldown
- Leg curl machine
- Swiss ball
- Yoga mats
- Tread mill
- Cross trainer
- Static bikes
Your entrance here covers the cost of a towel and there is also a water dispenser too.
The gym also provides lockers, toilets and showers for you to use. Sing Ken Ken Gym also has a swimming pool but that is an extra 50,000 IND.
The hotel also has a wonderful bar and terrace area on the roof next to the pool. I got chatting with the staff and they told me this was the perfect place to watch the sun set over Bali.
Who is this gym for? Really this is a hotel gym which is open to the public. I suspect the extortionate entrance fee is more about client control than value for money. Whilst the gym will do in a pinch, the lack of a bench press, squat rack or any serious weight is likely to leave serious lifters disappointed. Whilst the gym is clean and safe, I would only recommend this gym to casual users or cardio bunnies.
Tips: Bali has loads of great gyms. If you can, try and find another one to train in.
