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
We stayed here for 5 nights (Wed 2nd Oct to 7th Oct) for the first part of our honeymoon.
Our stay was exceptional. There are so many aspects that were great. The pool, the views, the cleanliness, the amazing massage, the drinks, the hotel itself and the amazing rooms. This was all made perfect by the fantastic staff. The welcoming smiles and ambience of this place is second to none. My partner and I felt so relaxed. The place also smells great!! This hotel was the closest thing to perfection for us and was the highlight of our honeymoon.
We stayed at the hanging gardens of Bali for a few nights before flying back (it was double the price) but not as good as The Seminyak.
Thank you for making our honeymoon so perfect and sorry we didn't review sooner!! We will definitely be back!!
I spent two nights on my own at the resort. Before arriving there was a complication with my reservation (my fault). The hotel staff kindly worked with me to re-arrange.
The grounds are perfect and luxurious. I found everything to be very clean. The beach and facilities were also excellent. While the food quality wasn’t quite gourmet it was all very good. You’re also located to one of the main strips in Seminyak so you can easily walk to decent food and bars.
I really enjoyed the Escape to Badung excursion with my wonderfully friendly guide Wira.
I also had a top notch massage before leaving.
While it is pricey it was worth it and I would definitely stay here again. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
They say that it's not the place but the people....in thi hotel it's both. I have just been in heaven and met the most wonderful people at this fantastic Hotel. I cannot fault it.
Hope to be back next year x
