Located in the trendy center of Seminyak, the L Hotel aims to marry chic comfort with stylish modern décor. Its 30 suites have traditional-style carved ceilings but also eye-popping splashes of color and coolly tricked-out bathrooms. Butlers are on call to help guests take care of basic chores and personalize their travel experience. There’s a focus on quirky activities, such as beach soccer and kite flying, as well as the expected swimming pools, trendy bars and Asian-fusion restaurant—in this case with a chef from one of Bali’s most popular restaurants, Mama San, who adds continental flair to local dishes.
In the Area
The L Hotel is situated in the posh neighborhood of Jalan Petitenget, in the beating heart of Seminyak. It’s home to some of Bali’s best restaurants like the Balinese eatery Warung Melati, boutiques and clubs such as Ku De Ta, Métis and Sarong. Seminyak is an increasingly popular, less-crowded alternative to Kuta, with beautiful beaches and excellent shopping and dining. Petitenget Beach and Jalan Beach are also both quite beguiling.
How to Get There
L Hotel Seminyak isn’t the classiest hotel but it represents really good value for money.
We booked a suite room which was clean and a good size.
It is the most peculiar designed room that we have ever stayed in, with the toilet behind a sliding door and the sink close to the bed. However, it did have a decent shower and a very comfortable bed.
The staff were very friendly.
Our breakfast was fine.
There are lots of decent restaurants nearby.
The features uploaded was different from the reality and they don’t have a good access of amenities
The hotel is contracting with Soham wellness center it’s like 3 minutes away from the hotel
I like the area of Seminyak coz its nearly to everything I want like bars restaurants beach
If you prefer a hotel over a villa I can recommend the L Hotel. It’s in a great location surrounded by shops and great cafes, bars etc. You don’t have a pool onsite but it’s a short walk (or they’ll drive you in a buggy) to the Soham Wellness Centre so you can also workout, get a massage etc while you’re there. If you’re a swimmer the pool is great as you can actually do laps in it. It’s not for kids though. Which makes it very relaxing.
The staff at the hotel were great. The beds were comfy. Good toiletries. The shower and toilet isn’t shut off from the rest of the rooms so there isn’t a lot of privacy there. It didn’t bother me but it might bother some. In fact I loved my bath overlooking the rice paddies.
The only complaint I have is they supply a goldfish in a bowl in your room, which is a horribly cruel practice. I don’t think there’s any place for animal cruelty in the 21st Century and certainly not as an Instagram gimmick. I asked for it to be removed as it’s upsetting seeing a fish in pain, which they did but then I'd arrive back at night and they’d have replaced it with another goldfish. When I mentioned the subject to one of the butlers at checkout she just laughed and told me that I only felt that way because I cared about animals. Shouldn’t we all care about animals? I know they get kept in the gold fish pond out the front but the days that they’re in the room would be pure torture for them. Goldfish in bowls get ammonia poisoning from their excretions because there’s no filtration which burns their gills, fins and skin resulting in black burned areas and eventually death. Because of the lack of surface area the water in a bowl can easily become de-oxygenated, causing the fish to slowly drown and gasp for air at the surface. In a bowl the fish stops growing, causing it to remain the same size. However, the organs continue expanding in size, and so do the spine, eyes and fins. Eventually, after the organs have been squished together and the spine is bent into an S-shape, the fish will die. It really depressed me every day having to see this goldfish in my room and asking for it to be removed. Please, please, please think of another another instagrammable gimmick that doesn’t involve animal cruelty.
