“What you need to know about the Sense”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I visit Bali around 3 times a year, we normally stay in high end properties (I’m very fussy about my accommodation). This year I decided that we would look for something more economical as we spend so much time out and about in Seminyak (we stayed at the Dipan, Sense and The Ize – see all review as each property is very well priced). My aim was to find a well situated, clean and professional hotel – the Sense ticked all the boxes.

I had some reservations about the Sense as previous reviews have said it's only suitable as a transit hotel, the rooms are too small ect. I was absolutely happy with this property. It’s not a fancy resort, it’s a professional, well run, centrally located hotel who offer a high level of service.

Location:
Brilliant location approx. 3 mins walk to Grocer and Grind and directly opposite Bodyworks!
This hotel has a nice Balinese feel to it. The staff are really friendly and speak good English.

Check-in
Efficient and very courteous, they were able to accommodate an early check-in.
The staff were very helpful, my mum was ill during our visit, they took me to a pharmacy etc and offered to organise a doctor to attend the hotel.

Room (we opted for Deluxe).
The hotel has 5 floors. The higher floors have better views. The deluxe rooms have balconies, the superior do not. You can request a pool view room or a seaview (or perhaps street view if you’re on a lower floor) – we selected pool view as its quieter.
The room size is adequate (plenty of room – we had twin beds) – perhaps not really suitable for adding additional bedding. The floor is tiled so it’s lovely and clean. The beds were comfortable and the linen was good quality. There is lots of storage.
The room had a small balcony – there were no chairs on the balcony however it was great to let fresh air in. The balcony isn’t designed for sitting on.

Bathroom
Yes it is very small, it has a walk in shower, toilet and vanity. It wasn’t an issue for us as we knew it wasn’t going to be a huge luxurious bathroom.

Breakfast
Excellent continental selection, they also offer egg station.

Services – room service available 24 hours. Laundry service available.

Pool
This isn’t a luxurious resort – the pool area is nice. The only downside is the restaurant opens on to the pool, so if you’re very modest you won’t get any privacy. Other reviewers have said the pool doesn’t get any sun – the hotel has rectified this problem by reducing the size of the water wall.

Day spa – we had a massage. It wasn’t the best or the worst I’ve had in Bali. It cost AUD20 so can’t complain. Bodyworks is straight opposite the hotel so that would be my first choice.

Would I stay again – absolutely this hotel is so well priced (currently they have on their website deluxe rooms for US65++ - you just can’t beat that).

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor - seaview have more privacy however I think the pool views may be quieter.

Fantastic central location in Seminyak, easy walking to shopping, dinning and beach, staff were very helpful and spoke very good English, price was superb with terrific room service, good food and laundry service,we didn't check out the day spa ran out of time. The pool area was nice even though was very shady, would defiantly recommend. Terima kasih Sense hotel staff.

Dear Mr Jez-n-Aims,

Warmest greetings from Sense Hotel Seminyak,

We are delighted to read your review, thank you for posting it. Indeed our hotel is situated on the prime location of Seminyak so it is all within walking distance. Despite of location, we are happy about your thought of our staffs, services, laundry etc where we do all efforts to make our clients feeling home. Indeed we have our in house SPA offering various treatments with our skilful therapists at affordable prices. We are not sure whether your stay was after the 20th Dec 2013, since we had actually cut the height of our waterfall so then more sunlight comes into our pool area. However, you may get this experience and see the difference during your next stay with us.

And yet, thank you for sharing your experience and efforts to recommend us to your family, friends and other.
Look forward to seeing your smile at Sense Hotel Seminyak again.

With best personal regards,

I can't thank the staff at Sense enough for making our two week stay in Bali so memorable. The staff made it feel like a second home and with the prices being so reasonable, it was such a safe haven we were happy to leave our belongings there when we explored other parts of the island for a night or two.

The location is wonderful, right next door to Motel Mexicola, and down the road from Ku De Ta, La Lucciola and Potato Head. Our room had views over Seminyak and the beach, you could see mountains on a clear day and the sunsets were amazing. I have heard comments that the rooms are small and sterile, but you need to remember this is a hotel, and with just over 60 rooms it’s not huge and they keep the rooms very clean. If you want to have your own space to relax in then my advice is to look for a Villa. We loved the rooms, they were new and clean, we had surfboards and suitcases everywhere and didn’t feel that they were too small at all. Overall, we loved our stay at Sense and have already recommended it to all our friends and family.

Room Tip: My only advice would be to ask for a room overlooking the beach, as the hotel us in a U shape the al...

Hotel is away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to everything, like Seminyak Square, Laksmana and Petetingret streets and the beach.
Booked a superior room but had no balcony and not sure about being able to open windows. The staff were great and upgraded me to a deluxe room which had a balcony facing towards the sea, so had some sea views. The other deluxe rooms have balconies facing in overlooking the pool area.
The rooms are large, modern and very clean.
Buffet breakfast was great and had a nice selection.
The pool was small and quite cool but I think it's because you only get a couple of hours of sun by the pool.
The wifi was complimentary and worked well through out the hotel.
Staff were very nice, helpful and welcoming.
There was a spa, but I didn't use it.
Would stay here again.
