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. Its 60 suites feel modern and luxurious, with intricate lattice woodcarvings, traditional Balinese beds have been reimagined with Italian marble foundations, and private terrazzo tubs for two peer over panoramas of the Indian Ocean. 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.
In the Area
The hotel works with Tropicsurf, one of the world’s leading surf coaching schools. Book a private surf lessons for all levels, from absolute novice to advanced. Each of Bali’s beaches has its own character. Go beyond Seminyak to visit the world famous surfing capital, Kuta, or the downy sands of Legian. Visit the sacred temple of Pura Luhur Uluwatu to cast on a hilltop over the Bukit Peninsul and head back to Seminyak for sunset lychee cocktail at happening beachfront spot, Ku De Ta.
How to Get There
I will come back ,but hope you take on my suggestions .
Great memories this place .Either way ,Im sure we will be back again.Love the rooftop restaurant and views .Which is where i had our wedding reception .A bit pricy ,but happy to pay for the quality and service we received
We stayed for 9 nights, myself, husband and 3 grown up children . We had 2 rooms, we picked this hotel because of the room size and it didn’t disappoint. Upon arrival we got the usual arrival drink , but this hotel is anything but your usual. Sat on the beach, not private, but it had a feel that it was , probably because of the clever landscape, and the hotel staff making sure no one apart from hotel guests came into the grounds . Beautiful reception, huge rooms, massive beds , balcony jacuzzi bathtub on the balcony, great view. Beautiful clean bathroom, huge shower separate toilet, 2 huge sinks and again massive jacuzzi bathtub,and i mean massive, I nearly fell into it trying to get the hand shower!! And the best bit, separate dressing room, wardrobe, vanity area, kids were very happy with there spectacular room and also extra bed , Thankyou for this, enough room to swing a horse !!! Seriously massive! The hotel was very modern, clean, crisp and gorgeous marble floors throughout. Gym on the rooftop and great spa . The rooftop restaurant had the most fabulous, Beyond amazing views. You couldn’t just sit at your table, you had to look out from the balcony and greet the day . Overlooking the sea , gorgeous, stunning with spectacular views of seminyak . This hotel is placed on prime location. Fabulous breakfast, you can have al la carte , buffet or both!! All the staff greeted you every morning and every time you saw them with the most sincere smile. Truly a credit to the hotel. BUDAR, was one of the waiters who was exceptional. I had a cough while i was on holiday a Budar brought me , every morning, a pot of hot water, lemon and honey . Very attentive and sincere. The pool area was great, overlooking the sea , just sit back relax and watch the waves a great place to unwind and relax away from the town . The pool boys Windu and Julia , kept the area clean and tidy, supplying us with enough towels and complimentary fruit flavoured ice cold water, basically running around, looking after all the guests, excellent customer service!! Great job all the staff exceptional and a credit to the Anantara Group, we are really glad we stayed here a true gem.
We came here for a five night stay and had booked an ocean view room package at close to A$700 per night. As such, we had high expectations in terms of what was being offered. Whilst the room and its view largely met our expectations, the hotel and services are well below par.
The facilities are in desperate need for renovations, starting with an entrance that is more akin to a two star hotel with cracks and chips on the stairs and dirt marks everywhere you look. There is no security at the entrance with a complete lack of feeling welcomed...very much budget hotel ambiance and set up.
The pool area is a disgrace with large chips around its edges and missing tiles on the pool bottom everywhere. The towels at both the pool and in the rooms are frayed and badly discoloured, not something one would expect from a supposedly 5 star hotel.
Everywhere you look the place looks very tired and it would appear that the owners and management have stopped investment in the upkeep of this hotel and it is being run down whilst still charging top dollar rates to unsuspecting guests like us.
Our rate included daily breakfast on the hotel’s roof terrace/restaurant. The ambiance, food and services are so substandard that we ended up eating breakfast out after the first morning.
We were also meant to be receiving “High Tea” every afternoon around the pool area, something which this hotel seems to have copied from its more upmarket neighbour hotels. This ended up like a comedy of errors with staff being so badly trained that we were getting conflicting advice on multiple occasions when and where we were able to receive this and we again just gave up on this...seriously substandard quality of food to top it off.
Needless to say, I would not recommend this hotel and even if at half the price we paid, there are too many shortcomings and disappointments for us to return here.
Throughout our stay hotel management was nowhere to be seen which is again a clear indication how badly this place is being run.
