“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

I stayed 7 days. The location is perfect for exploring Bali, and a peaceful haven from the bustle of seminyak. The rooms are very clean with a nice modern design. Excellent rooftop cocktail bar and good food. Great tea bags too. Very cool butler service; they organised day trips for me to see the best of the island. ABOVE ALL the staff are so genuinely friendly and they create such a welcoming, hospitable atmosphere, you will feel welcome and comfortable here!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

We stayed in L hotel booked through Agoda for 3 nights. The hotel offers a 15USD airport transfer which i urge anyone who plans to stay at L to take up. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were warmly greeted with welcome drinks by the receptionist and hotel manager. We were then rapidly checked in and taken to our room by the butler who showed us the various high tech functions of the room. Of note, the room bears a glass door shower which is ideal for romance but may pose a problem for platonic travellors. All features of the room are well appointed from a king bed with nice firm texture to the kiehl products available. One comment though is the toilet is rather cramp owing to limited space.

The hotel offers daily cocktails (free) between 5-7pm on their roof top terrace which is ideal for socializing with other hoteliers. The plus point are the warm and helpful receptionists! We were greatly helped by their assistance in organizing our daily trips whether it is on the short shuttle hotel provided to seminyak or booking a driver for us for the day. The receptionist were always on hand to assist us with our needs.

The breakfast was also extraordinary. The frenchtoast is a must try from the Rutglers menu.

On our last day, as our flight departed bali late, we asked about the possibility of having a shower after a warm humid day out in kuta and were greatly surprised to be allowed to use one of the empty guest rooms for shower before being driven to the airport to leave this blissful short trip that was made great by the friendly and warm staffs of L hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a room that does not face the main road

Dear tccs1983,

Thank you so much for your kind feedback about your stay at L Hotel Seminyak. Our staff are touched by your comments, and we are glad that our services met and exceeded your expectations. I must confess the French Toast is my personal favourite too, if you wish we can share the special recipe with you!

Happy to hear that you enjoyed the evening cocktails at Luna Bar & Restaurant. It gives us great satisfaction to know that you left Bali with fond memories and we hope to see you back here soon,

We stayed for 7 nights in L hotel and really enjoyed our stay here. We really felt it was the little things that made this hotel special. For a start the designer Khiels products are a bonus as is the complimentary mini bar and the complimentary cocktail and canapes in the evening. But our favourite "little thing" was getting a mobile phone we could use to ring the hotel to pick us up from our location in Seminyak. It was excellent and saved us quite a bit of money on taxis.

The food was absolutely amazing too. We had dinner one night in the downstairs restaurant and got the wagyu steak and mushroom risotto. The steak was the best we had ever eaten, so tender and juicy. We also had dinner upstairs overlooking Seminyak and it was also delicious. Definitely make time for dinner in the hotel one night!

The cons were minimal, but the hotel room is quite small and the hotel location isn't right in the action being about a 10-15 minute walk into the main square (the shuttle service does make up for this however). When we arrived they took my credit card to hold a guarantee (which in my previous experience has been about $100 or so) but they held $1400 on my card! A bit excessive I thought, given Seminyak is so well known for its shopping. :)

Overall this is a great hotel, the service is outstanding, food is delicious and it is modern and funky. It is still building a customer base and is relatively new but I have no doubt this will be a buzzing place once the word gets out.

Room Tip: The front rooms can be a little noisy at night, as there is a bar across the road. If you want a qui...

Dear Larseso,

Thank you so much for writing a review and for all your kind comments. You are indeed correct, the littlest things make a big difference and we are glad that you enjoyed all the little details at L Hotel. We also believe the little details are an integral part of the entire experience, which is why we introduced the mobile phone for guests and the shuttle service in Seminyak. Glad to hear you enjoyed the food; Mushroom risotto and the wagyu rib eye are our favourites too!

We do sincerely apologize for the credit card authorization issue that you faced, but we usually hold the total charge as a guarantee for payment. Also, pleased to let you know that we have installed a canopy in the front of the hotel that should assist in keeping the rooms quiet.

It is people like you who keep the hotel “buzzing” and we look forward to you staying with us again!

This lovely boutique hotel has the wow effect on us from the moment we step in till our departure back home. the L represent love, live, life, and you can see the words pop up everywhere in the hotel such as the Luna bar where you can enjoy one complimentary cocktails and the complimentary canapés while watching the sunset-absolutely blissful!
The breakfast was heavenly with variety of selection from wagyu beef with rice, fried rice, eggs of all kinds, pancakes to yogurt with granolas.
We stayed for 3 nights at at the luxe suite,the room is so cool and well equipped. We enjoyed the daily complimentary mini bar and the Kiehl's product. The 24/7 butler service was great especially when it was service with smiles. They organized our diving trip to tulamben smoothly.
The free shuttle service around Seminyak is very useful and we can call at anytime for a pick up. They even provide us with a mobile phone to contact them when we need to be pick- up.
We will definitely go back to stay at The L hotel for our future holidays in Seminyak, Bali.

Room Tip: Go for the luxe room... Love the Freestanding bathtub

Dear Syu,

Thank you so much for your review of L and for sharing your experience here. Firstly, very glad to hear that our Butler team organized your Tulamben diving trip well as we know that was an important part of your trip to Bali. You are right… L is about Life, Luxury and Love and it is this we want our guests to experience at all areas of the hotel especially our rooftop bar & restaurant and our great breakfast! Did you manage to try the spa?

What really makes us happy is that you found service full of smiles from everyone at L, it is truly what makes a stay pleasant. Look forward to having you stay with us again,

Kind Regards,

Dear Calvin,

Thanks for your feedback! Great to hear that Pak Budiman, Pak Gede and the rest of the team gave you the great service that L offers and you enjoyed views of the rooftop! Our breakfast really does offer some surprises and the wagyu beef is one of the Chef’s specialties as is the One-hour boiled egg.

We look forward to your next visit at L,

Well L what can I say. I just got back from a 3 night stay at the L and it was not long enough. My room was funky and quirky, just how I like it. The little touches like the fresh cut flowers in the room. Lying in the bale reading and glancing out to all things Bali, yet I had my ipod music on and it was a little home away from home. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooftop bar is fun. The staff are relaxed, yet professional and always helpful. This hotel is bordering on Batu Belig and being that this is the new upcoming area of Bali it will only be one of the places to stay. For me, the solo traveller who is in love with Bali and it's smells and wonders, I also like to be able to take a quiet moment to prepare myself for my next little adventure as I walk out the door, this hotel certainly let's you do that. It's one L of a hotel. Thankyou L...

Dear Ppantz,

Happy to hear you enjoyed the bale in the rooms! We do know that guests love to listen to their own music in rooms, and that’s why the iPod docks come in handy. We are thrilled when guests tell us that they feel like they are in a home away from home, it makes us feel privileged that we were able to afford you the same comfort, luxury and quite peace of mind you would receive back home.

Batu Belig is a nice area close by and this is why Seminyak is such a great location to be in; you have access to Canggu, Batu Belig and other exciting developing areas in Bali.

It would be our pleasure to have you stay at the hotel again, please do keep in touch with us.

Amazing hotel. Best service in Bali, particularly their butler service and restaurant staff. Food in the hotel restaurant was great. They also include great extras like free mini bar, clothes pressing, breakfast, kiehls bathroom products, butler service, use of the hotel driver. But I would stay there again for two reasons. Firstly the pool is located right next to the restaurant, with people eating sitting right next to it. Also there is always lots if staff around for restaurant service so we never get comfortable swimming or relaxing by the pool. Definitely not the place to stay if you want to sit by the pool. Secondly the bathrooms and toilets were in terrible locations. The toilet was next to the head of the bed located in a cupboard. It offered very little privacy. Also this hotel has open bathrooms. Also no privacy here. The shower had a roll down screen but it only came to chest height and the mirror location meant to could see straight in anyway. The screen also cut the bathroom area in half making it difficult to navigate in and out of the shower. I share with a friend so the bathroom situation made using the bathroom very awkward. Pity because it such a lively hotel but I wouldn't stay again.
