“Royal Beach Seminyak Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The Royal Beach Seminyak Bali is an excellent hotel and great location. The pool / beach bar has a happy hour between 5 and 7pm with half price cock tails and draught beer with good bar service.

The rooms are some what dated but clean and comfortable bed for a great night sleep

Great hotel and great staff!
The rooms are very clean, and all the amenities are great, great pool and bar service around the recreational area.
The hotel manager in duty was super helpful.
The structure of the hotel it's also very nice, I'll recommend this hotel for couples and families. The beach area is clean and waters are a bit more calm that other areas.

The things that stand out the most at the Royal Beach were the amazing staff and the beautiful grounds. Add a good room and a beach-front location and you've got a winning combination.

Every day it was a delight to walk through the gardens to the restaurants, pools and (our favorite) the beach-front sun loungers. The ocean breeze and the sound of the waves were very relaxing. Loved the swimming pools too; the 'garden pool' was a quiet, secluded, almost exclusive retreat; the larger pool near the beach offered great views of the beach.

The food was very good and not much more expensive than near-by restaurants. We especially enjoyed the outdoor restaurant between - and with a view of - the pool and the beach.

For transportation, don't even bother negotiating a fare with the taxi drivers outside the hotel. The price of the hotel's own fleet is 25,000 (€ 2) within Seminyak. Try getting this from a local taxi (admittedly we tipped the hotel's driver 5,000).

As has been pointed out, the wifi signal varies; sometimes it was gone, at other times it was good enough to video Skype. Even in the beach-front sun loungers I had fairly good wifi signal. And what's more, it was free of charge.

In conclusion, highly recommended.

Royal Beach Seminyak just works for me. Though the room felt a little small, compare to our last lodging at Furama Xclusive, but it worked out well. The bed was big and soooo comfy, i just felt like sleeping all day long! The aircon was fantastic, considering how humid the weather outside, the small room felt like paradise! Five star Bedroom and Bathroom amenities. Complimentary wooden hand fan was a nice touch. Our room 249 was quite close to lobby overlooking beautiful tropical garden with fish pond just below. We could feed the little fishes directly from our balcony!
Fish feeding easily became our daily ritual on the way out to breakfast and back to the room every morning. My daughter just loved it!
Have I mentioned the beautiful garden? Its throughout the resort, not just the view from our room! Its the home to numerous living creatures, birds and lizards. Felt like in tiny national park, with the beach right on the resort, a short walk through the garden!
Go down around 4 PM, play a little on the beach or take a dip in the resort pool, or maybe just pick one of sun lounger facing the seminyak beach and just sit idle watching people playing around on the beach, then at 5 PM, order your favourite cocktail cos its HAPPY HOUR! Nothing beats wallet friendly high quality drinks while watching beautiful sunset over the rolling waves of seminyak beach. Truly memorable moments!
Their grand breakfast Also deserves five star standard. We had their Friday omelette special which was Balinese Omelette, just beautiful! Had one of the best croissant i've ever tasted. Loves their Roast Pork with Rosemary Juice with baby potatoes and Sauted Mushrooms. Yummy!!
Royal Beach Seminyak also had theme night dinners. Our package includes Dinner for two, and instead of set menu like we had at Furama, at Royal Beach Seminyak we actually could pick any of theme night dinner on offer during our stay. We chose their Balinese Night Dinner. Quite a memorable experience! They had Ramayana dance starts from 8 PM to 9 PM to enjoy while savouring extensive Balinese buffet from Ayam Betutu to Babi Guling. They also had Seafood Grill with Prawns, Mahi-Mahi, Clams, Squid Satay, etc. Make sure you leave room for desserts! Many choices on offer from fruits to sweets. I skipped fruits cos there's so many Balinese sweets to sample. Bubur Injin was simply YuM!
Only stayed two days here, and wished I had stayed longer. Definitely return next time!
The only suggestion I might offer is for the management to improve their WiFi service. I could only get connection on one spot from inside my room, which was next to window. And thats only two bars at best. Tried connection from the restaurant and around the pool area, also the same. Two bars at best!

Room Tip: I bet any rooms would have beautiful views, but I prefer one close to lobby and access to ground flo...

If you're looking for an authentic Balinese holiday this is for you.A low rise hotel set admist an amazing expanse of vegetation & pools that offers privacy from the "beachwalkers" 2 pools-the large,well contoured beachfront & the beautiful,serene,childfree garden pool.The outdoor restaurant,overlooking the pool & ocean,offers a large buffet breakfast,but the nightly "themed"dinner [with live music] is best at the pool.The "Happy Hour" 5.00-7.00 is a very pleasant way to watch the sunset & plan your evening.Take a stroll along the beach or short taxi drive to numerous cafes for a change of"eating scene" The rooms are spacious & clean.The STAFF !!!-so warm, charming, friendly,helpful,always smiling put "The Cream" on your holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms to number 32 on levels 1.2 &3 have no views.

Excellent location right on the beach and within a short and inexpensive taxi ride to all that Seminyak has to offer with fabulous restaurants, beach clubs (but why do you need them with a fantastic pool at the hotel) and shops.
