“Great week in Bali”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

We spent eight days and seven nights at The Colony Hotel in Seminyak, Bali. It is a beautiful, boutique (small = 19 rooms) hotel close to so many nice places. We checked in late, plenty of staff to see us settled and they never stopped taking care of all 19 of us. I'd recommend getting the breakfast with the room as it can be as much you need before heading out... or hanging around that beautiful pool. The rooms were spacious and so comfortable. Did I already say the staff were great?!

Room Tip: Rooms in the back don't hear as much of the pool noise.

We stayed at the Colony Hotel for 4 nights and everything was amazing!!

As we arrive from the Bali airport. Cold drinks and towels are offered before we got into the car which was a welcome after a long flight!!

On arrival at the hotel, we were greeted with beautiful smiles and a very warm welcome, the very helpful staff escorted us to the reception and offered us with a really refreshing and delicious water melon juice as we check in. Yes, the pictures on the web site are true but you do not 'feel' how amazing they are until you are there! Complimentary drinks served in the room which was a nice touch. Wifi through the hotel and in room was great as we were always online with no problems. Pool and garden were cleared each morning by a team whilst we were at breakfast.

Toiletes in the room were excellent quality, great shower area and included soap, shampoo, body lotion and hair dryer. The room was also supplied with bathrobes, and scented with soothing fragrance! The pool size was amazing, with no kids running and jumping around,!

We are also very pleased to find out that they are offering massage services and that they are using the best massuese from Jari Menari, the most excellent and skilled therapists in Bali.

What made the Colony special was the quality of the staff team. Hospitality in Bali is always attentive but what makes the Colony special is how the balance being truly attentive whilst being very discrete as well as being genuinely concerned about your well-being and enjoyment. Everyone from Front Desk to room assistants, personally wanted to make sure we were happy. Nothing was forced or false. It felt as if the hotel team was a family rather than individuals working together. The hotel is also small of a size with 20 rooms which means you are important and not lost within the 100's of people staying. Immediately everyone knows our names and this continued through the whole visit by myself and my partner.

Its not the first time we are in Bali and I must say that the location is the best we can ever ask for, It is only 2 minutes walk to La lucciola restaurant in front of the beach and also accessible to all the boutiques and the best restaurants in Seminyak like Kudeta, Sarong, Metis, Sardine and Mama San amongst many.

This was an amazing trip. The privacy of the hotel and quality of service and staff made this holiday the best ever. It was NOT EXPENSIVE in comparison to other premium hotels nearby. It was certainly excellent value for money!

We definitely intend to come back again next time. Thanks the staff of the Colony Hotel Bali!!

Highly Recommended!!

Nine of us stayed here to celebrate my special birthday. The rooms were well appointed, beds comfortable, staff friendly and the location was perfect for us. What more could we ask for.

Stayed at the Colony based on trip advisor reviews. Small luxury boutique hotel (20 or so rooms) in the heart of Seminyak.

Locations - hotel is opposite The Samaya - its in prime real estate - 2 minute walk to Lulciola, 5 mins to Kudeta - 10 mins to Biku restaurant/Potatoe Head, 2 mins to bodyworks. You couldn't ask for a better location.

Rooms - the rooms are very well appointed. We had a delux twin. We moved after the first night as our bathroom had a huge skylight. The room was so bright however this was a bit of an issue for us at 6am in the morning. The rooms are very luxurious. I think its work spending the extra few $$ for a suite. The rooms have all the usual amenities, minibar, tv, dvd, hairdryer ect.

Breakfast - is served by the pool. Its fairly basic but adequate. Choice of fruit platter & juice, eggs (with mushrooms, tomatoe and bacon), pastry & toast ect. Bfast is served by the pool from 7.30am.

Room service - none. I mention this because for somepeople its a deal breaker. There are several restaurants and other hotels closeby so its always easy to find somewhere to eat. The hotel does plan to open a small restaurant in the upcoming months.

Pool - WOW its beautiful. The hotel is based around the pool. Given the hotel only has 20 or so rooms getting a lounger was never a problem. Drinks and snacks are available during the days.

Service - excellent. The staff have a 'can do' attitude - anything to make you happy. You need only ask and its on the way.

Airport transfers - the hotel offers very cheap transfers in airconditioned luxury sedan,

Who is this hotel suitable. Does not accept children under 16. Suitable for all adults (appears to be gay friendly). Lots of downstairs rooms for those with disabiliites. The hotel is very accommodating in terms of room requests. If you are a single person travelling I think you'd feel very secure and comfortable at this hotel.

Overall a luxury boutique hotel at very reasonable prices. Please email me directly for more info.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and based around the pool - however for an extra few $$ you can get a lovely su...

My wife and I stayed at the Colony Hotel the night of 19th April and we wished we would have stayed longer but had made other arrangements down on Jimbaran bay.
This is a Boutique style colonial building with some 20 rooms and suites located around a very nice pool. We had a Suite on the first floor which was very spacious with a large balcony and bathroom. All the amenities of a luxury hotels are available including very nice bathroom amenities, LCD TVs with satelite channels and complimentary wifi.
Breakfast is served on a small terrace by the pool and is of very good quality.
What makes this hotel such a delight is the tranquility and the staff who are very engaged and well trained. The location of the hotel is minutes from major night venues, restaurant and bars.
Truly a hidden gem in Seminyak!

Room Tip: Try to get a Suite on the first floor.

I stayed at The Colony Hotel in Bali over Easter. It was great - and, importantly, very reasonably priced. Less than half what I normally pay at one of the beachside, larger hotels. The Colony is pitched perfectly at a sophisticated market that expects style and great service at a reasonable cost. I realised after staying here that I don't need to pay for the add ons at the bigger establishments, business centres, enormous pools and the like. I need what is provided here at The Colony, lovely, private and relaxing rooms, great service and easy access to restaurants, beaches etc. It is a small hotel - with about 25 rooms but these are beautifully appointed - with tasteful amenities. I began my stay in a downstairs room. This was lovely but I was happy to move upstairs to a suite with a balcony. Here, the hotel came alive for me. The rooms are very spacious anyway, but the balcony suite gave the hotel an edge. Balconies are generously sized and very much in keeping with a Raffles like feel. Elegant, breezy and easy to relax overlooking the pool. I am a very regular visitor to Bali - at least three times a year - and have stayed in many 5 star hotels in both the Seminyak and Sanur areas. For my money, The Colony is the best by far - in that it is easily the best value for money. It is not a hotel for families with children - but for singles and couples it is ideal. Needless to say, the hotel is located perfectly in the midst of Seminyak - easy walking distance to La Lucciola, one of the great Bali reastaurants and many others. Biku is just up the road a bit and Metis a little further along - a 5 minute taxi ride. The best shops are also a quick taxi ride away. As well, bars, both straight and gay are close by. The beach is also a very short walk across the road. I was delighted to discover this new hotel and look forward to staying there again soon.

Room Tip: Go for an upstais balcony suite - lovely!
