“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Stayed here with my wife second week of August this year. The drive from airport is a bit of a drag due to traffic but not the hotels fault. It took us just over an hour in the afternoon. The hotel welcome was lovely with the customary flowers and cold flannel. Check in was very easy even though we made a special request for the top floor of the garden block. We had to wait a bit as they had to make the room up but gave us a complementary drink whilst we waited. Note there is no lift in the garden block but it's only 3 floors.
As said in many reviews the road between the two blocks is busy but the security guards are fanatic at making sure they stop all traffic for you and are very friendly. Initially we were not sure about staying in the garden but it was absolutely fine.
The room are large and very nicely laid out with big comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms.
All staff in the hotel were very accommodating and friendly.
Beds by the pool do go early so be prepared.
On a side note it's much easier to visit the bars by walking up or down the beach. Ignore Ku De Ta as there are much better less pretentious bars further down.
The bars around Seminyak square were busy and on the street. All a bit tacky compared to the beach bars. The food in the restaurants in the food market were excellent and excellent value.
All in all a lovely hotel in a brilliant beach location.very safe and you feel very well looked after.
Seminyak is slovenly but a bit touristy for me and Kuta was just chaos. But it depends on what your after.
Tip: ask the hotel to arrange a car and driver for the day and get out of the tourist area and see the real Bali, it's beutiful.

Room Tip: If your in the garden block get a room on the top floor. Away from road and a bit quieter but be awa...

If you want a real holiday away from everything this is the place. Soooooo quiet hard to believe it is booked out when there doesn't seem to be too many people around.....except when you are trying to get a sun bed by the infinity pool . We upgraded to beachside after reading Trip Advisor. thanks !best $200 US we spent. All staff very friendly and accommodating. bring your own mugs if you like a mug of coffee and not a thimble. A couple of concerns that were addressed immediately like DVD not working. Very short walk into eating precinct. Directly next door to Ku De Ta and a lovely stroll along the beach to Potato Head.
Will definitely be coming again soon.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $$$ for beach side

First the positives - beautiful pool, right on the beach. You can laze about in the water and watch the surfers or enjoy the view at sunset. Buffet breakfast was very nice, staff were super lovely (particularly to our baby) and the room was pretty big and comfortable.

Negatives - we booked into the "Garden Wing", which isn't a wing and doesn't have a garden. It is a separate building across and slightly down the street, which feels like it used to be a separate hotel. Actually, it feels like it's still a separate hotel.... one with no lifts. We were climbing up to the 3rd floor with a baby, stroller etc. We ended up going down for breakfast and packing for the whole day out so that we wouldn't have to go back to the room (although in fairness walking from the pool it's only about 5 mins, and their staff help you cross the street). I chatted to someone who'd stayed in the Garden Wing and then paid to move to the Beach Wing, and I think that must be quite common because you do feel a bit like a second class citizen.

Also, check-in was very painful, somethings had gone wrong which meant that they didn't have our room available, they somehow hadn't realised there was a problem until we tried to check in, but they then had to spend 3.5hrs resolving it. Very disappointing as we'd arrived after a long car journey with our 10 month old, desperate to chuck our stuff in the room, get some lunch and hit the pool. After an hour they told us we'd be in a twin room for the first 2 nights and then upgraded to the Beach Wing for the last 3 nights. I didn't see that the upgrade for 3 nights balanced out the downgrade for 2 nights, and Twin beds are completely impractical for us as our baby often sleeps between us. It wasn't until 2.5hrs after arriving that the Manager came and told us we could go to the pool while they sorted it, we eventually got to the pool about 5.30pm! The Manager did handle things well and gave us complimentary dinner that night, which was a very nice gesture, but unfortunately it doesn't make up for the wasted afternoon when you've only got a few days somewhere, and you're paying $300+ a night for it.

Also, don't get excited about the bowl of "tropical fruit" on arrival - ours was a pile of apples.

Only other thing is it's a shame there's really no shaded area over the pool, especially tricky with kids.

Room Tip: Avoid the Garden Wing - it's a separate building across the road with no lift.

I came to Bali not quite expecting just how huge the island is! We stayed in Nusa Dua for the first four nights of our 12 night stay and it took one hour by cab to get to the shops and restaurants in Seminyak. I would say Seminyak is definitely the pulse of Bali as far as boutique shopping and nice eats so if you are looking for central accommodations, definitely book here.

We decided to spend our last two nights in Seminyak at The Seminyak and while the property was nice, it wasn’t a wow. It seems just slightly below luxurious, despite commanding a luxury hotel rate. Overall, though, the stay was good, the pool area was very nice, complimentary breakfast offered plenty of choices, service was gracious and above all, location was excellent. It was walking distance to the main drag and neighbours some top-end hotels and famous beach clubs.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed for four nights July 2014.Asoundingly beautiful place. Breakfast to die for. Staff like all of Bali were great. Room was beautiful, beach wing. Now for the bad news. No hot water on day one. Complained told it was fixed. Day two no hot water. Complained, sent the "engineer". Day three, you guessed it, no hot water. I had a cold shower once again then went to reception and escalated politely. The manager was apologetic. I suggested that perhaps my wife could use a spare room to have a shower. He hadn't thought of that and said one was close by and he would ring. One hour later, no call. I rang. Still finding room. Fifteen minutes later a young girl came and escorted us to a room a long way from our room but it had hot water. Day four, HOT WATER! Prices at this place are astounding. So overpriced for what you get. Must say though that the WIFI is by far the best I have experienced in Bali. To their credit they offered us a free massage or a free evening meal to make it up but this was only after we filled in their review critically but we declined as we wanted out of there. But oooh the breakfast!! Amazing.

Room Tip: The beach wing is beautiful but check out the hot water before the porter leaves.

Perfect tranquil sunset while on the Terrace enjoying English tea! We travelled to Seminyak to watch the sunset but it was an hours queue wait at The Potato Head Club on the beach front. So we walked 10 minitues to the Spa Hotel. What a delightful experience. Tranquil 5star beachfront hotel with an infinity pool sinking into the beach

Very nice hotel with excellent price/quality. We stayed for 10 days with wife and daughter in 2 rooms. At arrival staff was very helpful and friendly. Although arriving a bit early we could already have 1 room available so we could change and go to the pool. Pool is very nice with a great view of the nice beah and ocean. Breakfast was excellent with its of choose. As location this hotel is perfect only walking distance from all nice restaurants and bars in the area. Ku De Ta and Potato Head are a must to go and have a drink and diner. Also nice for lunch !! We never had diner at the hotel as there are so many fine local places around but lunch at the pool was perfect !! Most people at the pool are couples so always very quiet.
Some minor remarks :
- Airco in room was leaking and sometimes smelling a bit. I think this is a general issue as we say staff working and cleaning leaks at several places in the hotel.
- Pool bar is a bit hidden behind the Wedding Chapel so not really a swim-up pool bar.
- If staf is preparing for a wedding it takes while before you can find someone the the pool to order a drink.
- The hotel tries to organise nice evenings (BBQ, Diners, etc) but should communicate this better. They do a huge effort but not much people join these events as we only found out in the evening. A shame for all their effort made. Communication to every guest personally would be helpful.

All in all a very nice and relaxed stay and a nice hotel with great and helpful staff !!!

Would definitively recommend and stay again !!

Room Tip: Take a room in the garden main building as the hotel as also rooms on the other side of the street...
