“Brand new hotel, good location, excellent value for money”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

We were very pleased with our 3-night stay here in Jan '13.

The hotel is very new and our room was spacious (booked Superior room) good aircon and great walk-in rainshower. There is a pool area in the centre of the hotel with sun-loungers but you don't come to Seminyak to sit by the hotel pool all day.

The hotel is well located. It's about 6-7 min walk to the beach, 5 min walk to Breeze Restaurant (which was exceptional,) 10 min walk to KuDeTa and about 7-8min walk to Seminyak Square end of Jl. Kayu Aya.

Surprised to see some review comments about the beach.. there's about 10 miles of it and it's much cleaner than further south such as Jimbaran and it's soft sand instead of the stones/volcanic beaches of the North and the razor coral of the Gilis. We thought it was one of the best in Bali. Plenty of Beach Clubs if you want a lounger and service. Also, regarding the hotel we had no problems with noise and the aircon units are tastefully hidden by panelling - we actually commented on how we thought this was a pretty good idea.

We had breakfast included with our rate. There is was a limited continental buffet and a full cooked to order breakfast included with lots of choices. We just had eggs but there's a whole range of full cooked options.

Where this hotel really excelled was in service. First class. It was fairly quiet when we were staying but we were recognised and addressed by name by several of the staff which is above and beyond what is expected and impressive. They were also very helpful when we had a booking confusion with our driver and needed to make a trip to the pharmacy. They were happy to call the driver and resolve the issue on our behalf. They showed genuine concern for our comfort throughout the stay. They also made a special effort on the day before departure to ensure we were briefed about DPS departure taxes and made sure we were ok for transport.

Would definitely stay again & recommend.

The hotel is ok, it's modern, rooms are small around a smallish pool, in a C shape, in a tall motel configuration, breakfast is not great, all air conditioning units have been installed on the outside of each room rather than on the roof, so the noise around the pool and in the whole C shape is rather unpleasant, if you're not a fan of air-conditioning and would sleep with the windows/balcony doors open, then this isn't pleasant.

But what I really can't understand is that in all the reviews I have read, no one says that although the hotel maybe a 5 minute (very fast walk) walk to the beach, when you get there, not only is it a rather unpleasant, unclean beach, but there is a sign saying you can't swim or sunbath as it is a place for Hindu worship, and that you need to turn right or left and walk to the white umbrellas, well I looked and it seemed quite a distance. Do not stay here for a beach holiday unless you are planning to have a scooter or a taxi ride every time you want to go to the beach.

On the flip side lots of shops and fun bars and restaurants not too far away for the evening.

All the staff are friendly and happy, as are most of the locals.

As an aside, I have been along a fair amount of Seminyak beach and wouldn't say that any of it is very nice. Apparently, although I have t been there yet, the beaches on the south are nicer.

The staff is very friendly,always with a smile in their face and let you feel welcome. I had a problem and they did their best to help me,with success!
Everything is really clean and modern.
Rooms are nice furnished and the beds are comfortable.
Restaurants,shops and beach in walking distance.
The street is quiet so I slept well.
Breakfast is also ok.
The only negative thing I noticed is the pool area.It looks really nice,but most of the pool area is in the shadow for the whole day,only a part of the area can reach shafts of sunlight. But there weren't so many people during my stay that I could snatch a deck chair in the sun :-)
Anything else during my stay was perfect for me!

Had a good stay at Sense, it's defiantly just a hotel not a resort but it's all we needed as our friends had a flash villa close by. You can walk to the beach, the shopping strips and all the restaurants. We paid $130 over peak season and I would not want to pay more then that.

We spent 8 nights at the Sense Hotel. It is only a few months old so nice and new. The staff kept every part of the hotel spotlessly clean and there always seemed to be someone cleaning something! We were very well looked after by all the staff and they could not do enough for us, particularly Sugiantini and Ely. They were always full of smiles. The rooms were spacious enough for 2, food was great and the spa was excellent. I had a lovely birthday surprise when they all came out with a cake and candle singing 'happy birthday!'. The staff were genuine in everything they did for us. Thank you Sense Hotel for helping us have a lovely holiday - we hope to see you again next year!

Room Tip: Room over looking the pool is great

This new hotel is one of my favorite in Seminyak. One, because of its location. You can find everything in walking distance. Food restaurant (from "warung" until high end ones like La Lucciola, Breeze, KuDeTa), beach, clubs, shops etc.

Second, the room is spacious, nice and clean. And also the staffs are very kind and helpful.

Yes it lacks of parking lot but they have valet service so it's not a big deal.

We stayed at the Sense Hotel over an extended weekend. The hotel has just opened a few months and facilities are still new. Some thoughts:

Pros

Location
- near many restaurants, spas and fashion boutiques
- walking distance to a peaceful stretch of the beach
- not too much traffic or other noise from the road where the hotel is located

Hotel
- hotel facilities are very new
- helpful and friendly staff
- hotel rate is affordable for the area, especially with the promotions
- common area in the hotel is not overcrowded with other guests, you won't have trouble finding a seat at the lobby/pool/restaurant
- free shuttle service on demand (subject to availability)

Cons
- difficult for taxi drivers to find the place, hotel doesn't seem very well-known among locals and the map on the website doesn't help much
- some distance to the CircleK convenience store
- street gets very quiet and dark at night, most shops are closed after 10pm
- miss out on the 'villa experience'
- no drinking water at breakfast area (just nit-picking here)

If you are looking for a place with great value, are not thinking of spending a lot of time in the premise and rather laze out at the spa/clubs/beach or excursions around the island, Sense Hotel is a worthy option. Overall positive experience.
