Oh wait, I once get questioned by hotel staff when I was riding the elevator up again to level 4 in Anantara Resort Seminyak. Tune in to 02:05 then you can clearly hear the staff says "Where are you going?" to me. I stop the video and I said "To 4th floor" and the staff obviously cares about it. After the staff went out, I start recording the elevator again. That's why I have to split two videos on the Part 2 videos because the staff is onboard the elevator with me.

It seems that hotel staffs and security guards in most hotels in Bali do not really care about non-guest people entering the hotel.
Maybe because you are older than Sam and me, making your face looks most like an adult. I think they only question children that enter hotels alone.

So far I've never experienced anything like this in most smaller hotels in Bali. It seems that hotel staffs and security guards in most hotels in Bali do not really care about non-guest people entering the hotel. Even when I went to Ibis Styles Kuta Circle Hotel twice, a security guard at the entrance did see me but I didn't get questioned. This case is also similar in Mercure Kuta Hotel, but with two guards at the lobby entrance. Hopefully I won't get questioned when I went to another hotel in Bali (except for larger and upscale hotels like St. Regis, Westin, Nikko, etc.*)

Maybe if I were you (Samuel), I would asked to go to the toilet.

*usually when there is a security check at the hotel entrance gate.

...If security recognizes your face as an adult, then why he had to question you?...
I don't know. Anyways, I will stay at that hotel

This experience also looks like my experience at Grace Hotel. In Grace Hotel, he said "Num (Guy in Thai)", although my face still looks like a child.
BTW, if security recognizes your face as an adult, then why he had to question you? I think security only questions children that enter hotels alone.
I also think that security does not care at all if the floors are locked, as floor lockouts serve as in-place security guards.

Happened April 7th, 2013; 12.30 PM when I was getting in Aston Hotel Pluit, I entered the building without getting questioned. But after a little bit finding the elevators, I got questioned by the security: "Bapak* mau ke lantai berapa? (Sir, which floor were you going to?)" REPEATEDLY until I got mad and left the building. I'll go there again when I got to stay there. They have to just wait for my time (not on this HUGEnding)

*I was called "Bapak"/Sir because my face looks like an adult and I had my bag in me at that time and if you want to know, I wore brown shirt

For your information, the elevators there are Hyundai like in Seibu Dept. Store at Grand Indonesia, Jakarta. Sorry, I got no photo
