“Great hotel in a very nice location”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

It was very nice surprise to find this charming hotel. Everything was perfect in terms of service, value for money, locations, tranquility, cute swimming pool, friendly staffs, cleaness of the room, etc. Semiyak is very nice are to walk around easily, every local people you encounter on the street saying greating with smiles, beach is within 10 mins walking from the hotel no matter how slow you walk. The Colony hotel is perfectly surrounded by nice bars, restaurants including Urchin right in front, beach, cheap or luxury massage shops, and 10 mins walking to more busy street full of local boutiques.

We liked how close the hotel was to the beach and good food; but we also felt very comfortable sitting around the pool. The patios on the upstairs rooms are very nice, but we liked the large room that led into the pool the best.

Room Tip: Avoid the room next to the dining area. A little noisy.

We just returned home today after a truly lovely 8 nights at The Colony Hotel, Seminyak.

What a find !!!

Having stayed in numerous hotels and Villa's over many years of travelling to Bali, we have a pretty good idea of comparative properties in the Seminyak area and further afield.

Without doubt The Colony is well up there on our 'favourites' list for numerous reasons.
1. Pure relaxation. So quiet and peaceful in every way.
2. Friendly, helpful service from the top down. The staff all seem really happy to be working here and we get the impression that this is due to the relaxed and extremely efficient management of the hotel.
3. Beautifully appointed rooms. We were lucky enough to be staying in Room #12 (Suite). This is the room situated on the first floor and the end of the pool. So spacious and with that lovely balcony overlooking the pool and hotel grounds. We also viewed a few other rooms as well and would suggest paying the bit extra for a suite. Manly for the extra space.
Having said that, the standard rooms are also really lovely, but noticeably smaller.
4. The real surprise for us was how good the food was that the staff deliver from the tiny kitchen and hotel restaurant. The included breakfast was simply, but very well prepared. We stayed in the hotel over Nyepi Day and had the pleasure of also trying both lunch and dinner. It was actually really good !! Great Nasi Goreng and Satay. The chicken Caesar for lunch was delicious.
5. Pool. Perfect temp. Not too warm or cold. Just right and crystal clear.
6. Room servicing was very quick and unobtrusive. The room was kept spotless.
7. Adult only policy. Although we usually travel to Bali with our daughter, on this trip we indulged in some adult 'time out' and although we love kids, the lack of them poolside was pure bliss !!
8. Finally the location, couldn't get much better. Easy walk to plenty of top restaurants and shops nearby. Constant supply of (dirt cheap) Taxi's passing by and easy entrance / exit and parking for our motor scooter. Note: there is a great short cut up to Seminyak Square, only about 5 - 10 mins walk.

Another great find and worth noting is the Gelato Bar and Curry house right next door. We ate there a couple of nights. The smell of the curry cooking in the afternoon drives you crazy.

We must also make a special mention of Tami. Right from when we made first contact with the Hotel, Tami was soooooo helpful. She also checked on us throughout our stay and arranged a very nice birthday cake, bottle of wine and flowers for my wife on her 40th birthday. The fact that this was complimentary did not go unnoticed. Thank you so much Tami.

We will be back to stay again and will recommend to all our friends that The Colony is a must stay in Bali. In fact some friends of ours are already staying there right now.

Room Tip: See our photos of Room # 12. Great suite, but all are lovely.

The Colony is really well located close the shopping & dining precinct of Seminyak/Pettitenget. Not only close to smaller cafes and dining, but either walking distance or a short cab ride to Bali's best restaurants.

Always clean and well maintained, the staff are very, very helpful and friendly. We had a problem with a change of flights & the hotel was extremely flexible & understanding in making changes to our accommodation dates. We've stayed twice now and will definitely go back.

The restaurant (Urchin) wasn't open when we were there, but looked very promising as a prominent eatery of high quality.

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms

We stayed in the Junior Suite (15). It was a fairly large room and bathroom. Everything was great. My only problem is that the Air Conditioner is very close to the entrance and the ceiling fan is in the same location, so it was very cold in the entrance but the bed area was extremely warm in the middle of the night, that is only thing I didn't like about this room. Another issue is that I couldn't get an appointment with Jari Menari and I stayed there for 4 days. Otherwise, it's waking distance to everything, there is a great Gelato place next door with good food in the evening. Would I stay again…Yes, but I would prefer a cooler room. I loved the pool right outside my room, the breakfast was also good. The staff are friendly.

Room Tip: Walking distance to lots of Restaurants..

Amazing hotel! Couldn't believe our luck when we arrived. We stayed in the Junior Suite with 3 people and it was more than enough room. The room itself was huge and the balcony was a great size.

The service at the hotel was great. All the people were very hospitable and tried to help us in every way which was very much appreciated. Everyone was very personal, knew who we were etc so it was very homely.

Great value for price couldn't recommend the hotel any more! Told all our friends to stay here already! Thank you Colony for the amazig stay!
