Glam beach retreat on Bali’s southwest shoreline, with a hip pool scene and rooftop restaurant
In the heart of the island’s trendiest beach community, the Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa merges the styles of East and West on the sun-drenched shorelines of southwest Bali. The resort’s architecture and design impress from the onset. The four-story, 60-room enclave is anchored by stark white pillars and divided by vertical wood slats that shelter expansive balconies. The floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open to understated elegance inside, with rich dark woods and plenty of natural light.
Bed and Bath
The 60 suites feel modern and luxurious. Intricate lattice woodcarvings span an entire wall, and traditional Balinese beds have been reimagined with Italian marble foundations. Earth tones pervade, from the dark wood floors to the nude sofas. Private terrazzo tubs for two peer over panoramas of the Indian Ocean or the tranquil infinity pools.
The hotel’s main pool attracts a sceney crowd, eager to stand, pose and sunbathe in style. Two smaller pools (for Pool-Access Suites only) offer more privacy, but it’s the principal infinity pool that has the best ocean views — especially striking at sunset. The spa is first-class, specializing in traditional wellness treatments; the signature massage uses natural vanilla oil and is administered on the rooftop. Wild Orchid, the hotel’s main restaurant, serves traditional Thai and at MoonLite Kitchen and Bar you can indulge in a unique rooftop culinary experience with an evolving mood. Relax at the trendy bar lounge with an extensive selection of traditional, classic and modern beverages, including seductive cocktails and a well-stocked wine list.
