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
We went to Anantara 2 days ago, this is first time we experienced watching the sunset at Anantara, the view was very beautiful, not too crowded, not noisy, perfect location, food and drink just amazing, the stuff super friendly and helpful, especially Made Rianta, he looked after us while we enjoyed the sunset and made us feel very comfortable.
We recently visited to have drinks on the beach. This place was amazing to watch the sunset. The staff were very attentive and always helpful. Special thanks go to I Made Edi Rianta for looking after us. Gladly returning
We went together with another family and each had our own private villas. The villas came with a master bed room, a huge family bathroom along with a court yard which separates the kitchen/ dining/ family tv room. All of us truly enjoyed our stay at the resort. I will allow the photos (albeit taken by an amateur) do the rest.
My friend and I stayed in Anantara Seminyak for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The suite was absolutely stunning! Very spacious, clean and beautiful. Complete with an open living area and jacuzzi on the balcony! The location was perfect, situated right on the beach and a short walk to local shops and bars. We were greeted at breakfast with a lovely, welcoming smile and conversation from Budar each morning.
And spent lunch relaxing by the pool with a view of the ocean in front of us. The staff were very friendly and in particular Artha truly went above and beyond to exceed expectations! He shared his knowledge with us and always had great recommendations, always genuinely happy to help with anything we needed. Artha’s kind and caring nature made our trip very memorable!
Thankyou Anantara Seminyak for a 5* vacation
Anantara was a very comfortable stay. It is strategically situated next to the beach with lots of shacks and restaurants at a walkable distance. Hotel staff is very helpful with all your needs and I must mention Artha who went out of his way to guide us with the right places to visit and where exactly to bargain. Kudos to him and the hotel for such warm hospitality.
