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.
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
.My daughter has been saving up for a trip of a lifetime to Bali with her partner. She is currently staying at the Anantara Seminyak after spending 4 nights in Ubud. She was advised 24 hours before leaving the UK (last week) that there would be some works and hammering at the Anantara but not excessive. Obviously concerned, she queried it before leaving and was advised that it would be OK. It was also too late to make alternative arrangements. The attached photos, just a selection, give an insight into the very poor state of the hotel as of today. All other 5 star hotels in the area are fully booked and she has no option but to stay at the Anantara. To make matters worse she is supposed to be celebrating her birthday tomorrow in what should have been idyllic surroundings.
I actually stayed in this hotel in April 2018 for my birthday, but realised I never reviewed it. So I have to do review it now as it's an incredible hotel, but earliest I could set the date on review was June 2017.
Anantara Seminyak is a luxurious resort. Seminyak itself is a beautiful area and this resort only adds to it positively. It's beautiful and luxurious. Great staff, great facilities, great food.
After check in, and entering the room you have this amazing smile on your face. It is expensive but worth it. Beautiful open plan room with bed, sitting area, walk in closet, bathroom, shower etc.. leading onto a balcony with your own Jacuzzi and a sitting area built on the balcony, all over looking the hotel pool grounds and on to the beach and sea. The selection of complimentary fruit, drinks, tea, etc was in Incredible.
Still taking all this in, and the hotel staff knock on the door and surprise me with a birthday cake. Amazing touch to hospitality.
The pool over looks Seminyak beach and the Indian ocean. The breakfast is on the roof top. Stunning views, amazing variety of food. I'm limited to 10 pictures otherwise would have posted hundreds!
The hotel has it's own luxurious class. You truly need to experience it. Perfect in every aspect. Thank you for a great experience and I hope to see you again.
The hotel has a great location but it need some mantainance as it looks that is an older property but it can be fixed up to the standard of the anantara chain
Good food and great service
Just few things that need to be updated
Amazing property , as always Anantra does not disappoint . I’m a frequent costumer of this brand . Rooms are bug and well designed . Staff very friendly and well trained . I’ll defently come back . Thanks
Dear Restaurant Manager
I would like to relate to you a disappointing dining experience my wife and I had at your restaurant last night. We had dined at your hotel on two previous occasions in 2016 during our honeymoon and had a delicious and memorable experience. Regrettably last nights dinner was totally the opposite. I feel obligated to inform you that the food was horrible and the service was sub par at best. The only positive about the food was the pea soup was outstanding. My wifes mie ayam bakso was not even street vendor quality... considering she is Balinese I know she knows how bakso should taste. As for my pork ribs they were dry and chewy and basically tasted like they were old and reheated. My first choice of a side dish was corn on the cob which I was informed 30 minutes after ordering was no longer available. They were replaced by soggy mixed vegetables. I realize we dined late arriving around 9:45 but I would have rather been turned away than served sub par food.
The service started properly but rapidly declined. We felt rushed and generally not appreciated as the restaurant was prepared for closing all around us. We ordered from a male waiter who suddenly disappeared, without any explanation. He was replaced by a female waitress who was cordial enough but seemed only interested in getting us out of your restaurant as quickly as possible. When she asked how our food was and I answered a little disappointing her response was only to actually giggle. I am honestly not sure if it was because of a language barrier or just plain rudeness. We have four more nights in Bali moving tomorrow from the Marriott to a private villa. We had planned on enjoying your restaurant at least for our final nights dinner. But after last nights experience we will be searching for a new favourite Seminyak Beach restaurant.
