“A slice of heaven in Bali”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Many thanks to Clinton Lovell [General Manager] and all the staff at the Anantara Seminyak Bali for again making my third visit to the resort a memorable one. As before, from the moment my family was picked up from the airport by the resorts driver - Mr Swita, we were treated more like family rather than guests. There is much to love about this resort but for us its about the magnificent location, beautiful food, attentive and friendly staff, and of course the great hotel facilities themselves. We all look forward to getting back to the Anantara Seminyak Bali as soon as possible.

Room Tip: A beach front room is a must

From the time of arrival to the time of departure, we were treated like royalty. Each and every staff, who served us, greeted us by our names & seem to even know of our preferences - from food to interest. Romantic ambience, great choices for food, fantastic location right on the beach and stroll to eateries & bars and lovely view of the sunset from the SOS restaurant.... Rooms were all suites, big & clean with turn down service. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they upgraded us to an ocean view room and welcomed us with a free sparkling wine ! Will definitely return back to this paradise !

Had very high expectations for this resort and with all the reviews that talk about how luxurious this resort is, and maybe I am just spoiled, but Anantara Seminyak cannot compare to any other 5 star resort that I have stayed at in Asia. Even in Seminyak there are much nicer places with far better service that you can stay at for less spend.

First impressions of the villa - very secluded. Located at the very end of the beach, the hotel entrance is just a small compound which represents 2 parking lots. Unluckily for us, it was raining on that day so we had to be ferried into the hotel by umbrella!

Check in was good and staff was very friendly indeed. Had a welcome drink and was showed to the room by the staff. View in room was not too bad with a nice ocean scenery. Room was big and so was the bed and the sofa. Outdoor jacuzzi was quite sad as there are water leaking at certain intervals on the day even though it is bright and sunny!

Another disappointment is with the hot water inside the showers. After a tiring night out, and returning back to hotel, wanted to have a nice hot bath but was denied. After turning on the hot water tap, no hot water. Called front desk, informed that they will check and call me back. 15 minutes later, I had to call front-desk again as no updates. Was informed that they will send a maintenance guy up to check. Upon checking he informed that there is really no hot water and will need go back to check on the system. In the end, they informed that the system is faulty and will allow me to take a bath in another room which is located quite some distance. I declined the offer as I am too tired to move around. Got up the next day to bath instead.

Would recommend the SOS bar as it actually provides a more stunning view of the ocean than that of the room.

Room Tip: Ocean view suite

Dear Milknut,

Thank you for your review.

Please accept our apologies for the disappointment you felt with the arrival experience. We will certainly do what we can to improve the arrival when it's raining which is sometimes a challenge due to the open nature of the hotel. The hot water trouble was an unfortunate and unexpected situation which we also offer our apologies for. We usually have ample hot water available to enjoy our great bathroom or balcony bath tubs and to service our over-sized custom-built Grohe rain showers which deliver an exciting flow rate.

Please accept our apologies for the disappointing aspects of your stay - we hope you will return to us so we might have an opportunity to deliver a stay more inline with your expectations next time as I know we can.

Again, thank you for sharing and with our warmest regards

Clinton Lovell

A surprise trip to Bali for my wife, splitting our stay between Nusa Dua, Lombok and Seminyak. This property has undoubtedly the best true beachfront location in Seminyak, with perfectly manicured lawns, attentive service and relaxing day beds, sun lounge or couch. Have viewed all the big resorts along the beach and this one beats all of them in terms of the actual beac and the lounge area. They give you a beach pack each time you visit the pool and beach area, including water, ice, fruit, sun screen and insect repellant. The pool is across the front deck overlooking the beach. Many good restaurants are nearby, including Gado Gado directly opposite. The SOS deck is amazing at sunset and for dinner. Great steak. Breakfast is great, a lacarte and part buffet served on the pool deck. The staff are very friendly, calling you by name. The spa costs more than most, but worth it. Gym is comprehensive. We have read the reviews on the rooms being a little tired and can definitely see what they mean, however they were very clean, well laid out and still had huge wow factor. We had an ocean front suite, great ocean views, large deck with day bed and marble jacuzzi. King size bed, living area, huge bathroom with seep rate toilet, oversized shower and double vanity. Also a large dressing room / walk in robe with safe. As the property is smaller than most (only 60 rooms) this place has all the facilities of a five star resort without the crowd. Whilst there we checked out the rooftop penthouse with two bedrooms and private pool, absolutely amazing. We would highly recommend this property. Smaller,I intimate and relaxing.

Room Tip: Go for the beachfront / ocean view, although we sure sure you will enjoy anywhere in this great plac...

What an amazing hotel! Great location right on Seminyak beach (and very close to the cool Kudeta Beach Club.) The Anantara Resort has a really great lawn area out the front with outdoor day beds to relax on, right on the beach. This resort is also the home of the SOS (Sunset on Seminyak) rooftop open air bar and restaurant. We were there for New Years Eve and they had an incredible Motown show with an artist called Carlton J Smith! Absolutely brilliant! Great venue, amazing performer!

The food, bars and service is outstanding. Very friendly helpful staff (but not too intrusive if you know what I mean) and the food is remarkably good. Quite a westernised menu but their steaks are unbeatable. One of the best steaks I have ever had which was unexpected!
Oh and the 7 course menu (including my favourite dish - seared foie gras… WOW!)

The Wild Orchid restaurant downstairs has a yummy menu with western meals but also some outstanding traditional indonesian dishes. Such a lovely spot sitting outside overlooking the pool, lawn and beach. Again all staff and service are excellent. Food and Service A++
First time to Bali - Food everywhere including in the hotel is very reasonable, drinks a little pricier but then probably as much as at home. Hotel prices seemed on par or ever so slightly less than some of the hip Seminyak bars like Townhouse and Red Carpet Champagne Room.

The Anantara Rooms are beautiful. Try and get a beach side room as this blew us away. The view was incredible and each room has a private outdoor Jacuzzi on the balcony to relax in and watch the ocean. Rooms complete with Bose sound system! Love it. The couch and in fact the whole room is very relaxing. Bathrooms are very big and posh with very luxurious soaps and accessories etc. My lady was very impressed but then even more impressed by the mirror lighting for makeup! haha… see us trying to install that at home! Very comfortable, very relaxing, sea breeze, and again great service. House keeping staff were like magic fairies… Never saw them but they always managed to make up our room to perfection.

The spa is simply outstanding. The treatments are incredible. Not super cheap but then you get what you pay for and believe me these treatments are amazing. (Still cheaper than back home in NZ anyway!)

The gym is very adequate. All the right equipment for my needs and I had a great 2 hour workout to burn off the yummy food I had over indulged in.

Overall this was a magic stay. The NYE performer was staying in the hotel and really interacted with the guests while he was there which was really cool. He sat with us by the pool for a couple of minutes and what a character! Lovely guy. The manager introduced himself and was a real gentleman. Felt like his culture had infiltrated every aspect of the service in this hotel. Welldone Anantara! First stay with this brand and keen to stay in more of these all around the world! LOVE IT!!

The Anantara is a small, boutique hotel located in Seminyak, but slightly away from the main strip. It has direct ocean frontage (which is rare in Seminyak) but the beach is not private and can get very busy, which detracts from what is otherwise a secluded location.

The rooms are very large, very well appointed and laid out, but feel a little tired. Wear and tear is evident in the furniture and fittings, but perhaps we were a little unlucky with our room. The hotel is an all-suite location, so expect honeymooners and older couples with no children. Families with young children are welcome, but be aware that you are clearly not the target audience.

Food outlets are excellent, especially the roof-top bar at the top of the hotel, which ofers an excellent ocean view, and is also a very relaxing place to enjoy after dinner cocktails and some shisha...

We found room rates to be more value for money than the F & B pricing once you are in situ but being located in Seminyak, you have many choices a short cab ride away. And on that point, we found that many taxi drivers were unwilling / unhappy to take us back to the hotel on return journeys, particularly from the Seminyak area. The main reason for this I suspect is that the physical distance is short, but the small roads are typically heavily jammed, and so they get a poor return for their time. A few less experienced drivers also struggled to find the hotel, despite our party being fluent in Indonesian.

The subtle point here is that not all locations in Seminyak are equal and there is a premium to be able to walk from your hotel to the heart of the area so you can enjoy the restaurants / shopping / nightlife without having to rely on transport. Our cab fares were never much, but the hassle of finding a cab, and then the stress of weaving your way back through traffic on one way roads (where a missed turn meant a costly and long delay) could put you off going out.

Overall, I would say that the Anantara is a great venue for seasoned visitors to Bali, who are happy to be located in slightly less convenient location in Seminyak (i.e. not as well located as say the Legian, Oberoi or W) in exchange for more cheaper, more spacious (if tired) accommodation that has direct ocean frontage.

Service levels were excellent and in keeping with expectations for the Anantara group.

Room Tip: The rooms with ocean views are definitely worth paying for. The rooms without the views face an inte...

The Anantara understands the needs of international guests, this luxury resort offers the utmost privacy with comfort and bliss. The very best level of personal and attentive service, lavish accommodation. A resort where your every need is pre-empted and your every expectation is met and exceeded.

You'd expect a luxury hotel to have excellent customer service, but the Anantara goes well above the expected. Hospitality is the key to success at this friendly hotel. From a warm personal welcome with the added touch of a drink and cold towel on arrival. This hotel looses no opportunity to make their guests feel at home and appreciated.

We always look for refined goods and services that show true taste and respect. Little touches that go beyond the usual! A room-service menu that accurately describes every dish, no guesswork, no surprises.You know great service when you find it; it feels brilliant and rare, but at the same time completely natural – the way things should be. This resort gets a gold star!

The rooms strike you as lovely as soon as you walk in. High-quality furnishings with no cheap touches such as rickety reading lamps! The hotel is tasteful and distinctive in its choice of room amenities and in-room features. Nothing second-rate or corner-cutting.

The Anantara makes guests feel that they are known and valued. Offering a smile at every encounter. This hotel is unique, it stands out! As guests we all want to know WHO we are coming to stay with, who is going to be looking after us. Personality clearly on show at this resort. We made honest and long lasting relationships.

Upgrades and offers of free meals and massages! Staff wanting to play with your children! Genuinely taking a big interest in your little ones! Excited to see and play with them daily! Huge hearts on show!

Overwhelming resort experience. We booked our return flights the second we left!

Room Tip: All lavish suites provide everything that guests require for a perfect stay in Bali!
