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.

How to Get There
We had a wonderful experience at Anantara a few months ago and decided to treat ourselves to another fabulous week-end retreat. The overall ambiance and the friendly staff is a delightful treat. Worth the splurge.
The room is very spacious overlooking to the ocean. The bathroom is also very large. I enjoyed the semi-buffet style breakfast with unobstructed ocean view from the Moonlight restaurant. Mr. Mawan is awesome, he really extend personalized approach to most of the guests during breakfast time. I also tried the 60 minutes massage, it was really good and the quality of the massage for sure can compete those top luxury resorts in the island. The staff are very warm and friendly
When we first arrived we got asked to pay a deposit of approximately 250 Aus, that money got taken out of our debit account straight away, when we checked out they asked us to pay the restaurant bills which we did, but we told them to take part of that deposit and use it on the bills since everything was OK. Well theu made us pay in full promising that they will refund our deposit in five days, it's been a month and the money is nowhere to be seen, don't go there they rip you off and take advantage of you.
This property did not fall short of my expectation. Its a beach front property and the location is near commercial establishments. Staff of the hotel are very friendly and accomodating. We are surely coming back for more....
Not a 5 star hotel. Poor beach maintenance and view between beach and hotel not pleasant. 3 star at best. If you have an ocean view not worth it. Also music from pool area is loud so you can’t enjoy relaxing in your room
