The Seminyak Beach Resort & Spa
What We Love
- Two-thirds of the property is a spacious garden (unusual for the Seminyak area) with thatch-roofed gazebos for reading, massage or relaxing
- A large infinity pool (big enough for laps) that directly faces the beach
- A wedding chapel that overlooks the ocean, with incredible sunsets
What To Know
- A 10 percent service charge per night will be collected at the Jetsetter checkout
- Guestrooms in the Garden Wing are in an entirely separate building across the street from the main hotel
- The rooms in the Beach Wing do not directly overlook the beach
- Lunch and dinner are served in the restaurant, which is set back on the hotel grounds, so there's no view of the ocean, only the garden
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
Stylish minimalism with distinct Balinese touches. The main building has four open-air floors, and the guestrooms are contemporary and spare without being overly designed. There is an appealing — though some might say sterile — simplicity. Landscaped gardens separate the rooms from the beach, providing a pleasant setting for the walk down to the pool, and they’re dotted with half a dozen thatch-roofed gazebos to sit and read in. Entering the air-conditioned sanctuary is a welcome and soothing relief from the tropical heat.
Bed and Bath
The chic bathrooms take center stage. Separated by a glass wall (with a shade that can be lowered for privacy), they feature porcelain stand-alone tubs, walk-in showers (big enough for two) and a handy amenities kit with products from Aromatherapy Associates. Suites also come with Jacuzzi tubs. Interiors are uncluttered. Dark hardwood floors and dressers with plenty of closet space are set against cream-colored walls and crisp white bedding. Beds are comfortable and come with pillow menus, and there’s a nifty switch that illuminates the bed base and controls the room’s ambience via mood lighting.
The hotel is the only one in the area that offers rooms, suites and villas, so it attracts a mixed group of guests, but not a lot of families. A swim-up cocktail bar encourages guests to linger in the infinity pool, and the Sanje Sunset Lounge is a prime spot for cocktails served with awesome ocean views, particularly at sunset. Santan restaurant is made up of a collection of dining pavilions that cut through waterways and tropical greenery; the breakfast buffet is piled high with local fruit, and the espressos are made from beans from Java. The beachfront wedding chapel is a storybook location facing the ocean, and the spa offers bridal party hair and styling.
How to Get There
first time stay at seminyak,warm welcome from the staff at front desk.the check in was very fast.the bellman was great person.he explain all the facility at hotel.the breakfast are great,the staff are friendly and polite.
First trip to Bali and chose The Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa based on location and other reviews. I can confirm without a doubt that choosing to stay here was the best decision. Location was an oasis away from the hustle and bustle but walking distance to all the hotspots. Facilities, cleanliness and the most accommodating staff I’ve experienced on my travels so far. Special thanks to Ugus for the impeccable cleanliness he left our room in daily and Desi for accomodating our requests with the friendliest of smiles. Poolside service, afternoon tea and breakfast were occasions to look forward to thanks to the delicious food and friendliness of all staff. Highly highly recommended!
We stayed at this resort from 7th September 2019 to 12th September 2019 after 4 nights staying in Ubud at The Alila.
We booked an ocean view suite and were given suite 2312, the view from this room was good but I can see that in a few years time the view will be obscured by the growing palm trees.
We could not fault our room, clean, excellent amenities, loads of extras ( too many to mention) all of a quality that you would expect from this resort - first class!!
The breakfast is also first class, buffet style with specials to order at the table and these change daily, there’s an egg station so you can have freshly prepared eggs to your liking. The buffet has loads of choice to suit anyones taste or preference. Afternoon tea was included, 3pm to 5pm, we only had this once for no other reason than we were content by the pool or out on the beach the afternoon tea was what it says it is, tea of your choice ( or coffee) and sweet or savoury nibbles.
There are two pools an infinity pool that faces directly onto the beach, just beautiful and the Sanje pool, this is a smaller pool with a swim up bar,the pools are clean, drinks and food are available at both pools that are charged to your room. There is even a member of staff that comes around and offers to clean your sunglasses ( no charge) a very nice touch indeed.
The only slight negative about the location of the pool and sun bed location being so close to the beach that from time to time you can get pestered by beach traders walking up and down the beach trying to sell items to you, their friendly enough but can be a bit of a nuisance when trying to relax and sun bathe. Just a pleasant but firm “No thank you” seems to move them on to the next guest.
The resort is centrally located, walk out the hotel (road side)turn left and a five minute walk you are at a flea market , local eating places were you can have cooking lessons (Balinese style) walk further along the road (10 mins) and you get to Seminyak village, stylish shopping and eateries.
Walk out the hotel and turn left and after about 10 minutes you will get to some great eating places / roof top bars (motel Mexicano is good but do book night before to avoid being disappointed) walk further past the temple on the left and after another 10 minutes you find Potato head - a sort of beach club ( look it up on trip advisor) worth a visit but do look out for a little sign on the road as it easily missed.
Walk out of the hotel onto the beach and turn right, after 15 mins you will find Mano’s, it’s a kind of beach club, go in your swimwear as there is a small pool, you can drink , eat & swim , leave the hotel onto the beach and turn left, walk for 15 to 20 minutes at you will find beach bars / casual eating places where you can get a coffee or something stronger if that your fancy and sit on the beach in a beanbag , very casual and laid back style
The staff are what makes the difference at this hotel, they always go “above & beyond” they are first class, every single member of staff that you pass greets you and enquires how your day is going, now my wife can talk for ever so we had to set off from our room half an hour earlier than we needed to as she would stop and talk to them all ????????
We have been to Bali twice now and stayed at four different hotels and we can safely say that this is the best hotel/resort that we have stayed in while at Bali from check in to check out and everything in between it really is worth every cent/ penny you spend on it
Hotels can be just “Bricks, cement, fixtures & fittings” but this is much, much more it has a life and ambiance that stands it head and shoulders above the rest that is brought to life by the wonderful staff
Thank you to all the staff & management for creating such a wonderful environment
