“Sensational resort in Seminyak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Have just had a recent stay at Anantara resort Seminyak and would go as far to say that it is one of the best hotels we have stayed at in recent times. Service by their staff was second to none, nothing was too much trouble. Location was perfect. Have only been back home in Melbourne a week and have recommended this hotel to everyone I speak too, can't wait to return.

My wife and I had a 5 night stay in the Anantara during our honeymoon in July 2013.

The staff were very friendly and attentive throughout our stay. The hotel has a very relaxing vibe. Our room had a fantastic view of the pool and beach. The rooms were very large and included a large king size bed, lounge area, shower room, bathroom and bath. The balcony includes a day bed and jacuzzi bath ideal for chilling out on.

Only negatives about our room was that there were a few signs of wear and tear that should have been repaired and the large window next to the bath was filthy dirty and the blinds had just been pulled down to cover it on our arrival.

We utilised the gym which was well stocked and also visited the spa which was excellent

The breakfast menu which was included had great variety and very tasty food. The lunch and dinner menu was also very nice.

There was a large number of day beds available and the pool staff made sure you had everything you needed during the day. The beach is fantastic, great for a walk or a run...the sea is very rough and dangerous...only suitable for experienced surfers.

Seminyak is a very lively location...full of fantastic restaurants and shops...only negatives of Seminyak were the terrible footpaths, crazy traffic and negotiating with taxi drivers!

Room Tip: Ask for beach view!

We stayed here for 3 nights in an ocean view suite, as a soft start to a trip around Bali and Lombok. The main objective for us was start our vacation with some shopping in Seminyak, being right on the beach with a sea view and to have some good dining options on site.

Anantara fulfilled these requirements, location is right on the beach, and we had a good view of the beach and ocean from our terrace, you can easily walk to the main shopping areas in Seminyak and do a loop and return home via the beach, and the SOS club has an excellent roof top location, with sunset view, nice ambiance and the food was also very good.

The service was smooth, friendly and efficient, but it kind of lacked the personal and interactive approach that otherwise is very typical for Bali (and SE Asia in general), on the other hand the service kind of fitted the hotel rather well, since this is not a sprawling resort, but more like a super cool and contemporary hotel compared to other beach hotels in Seminyak (e.g. Oberoi).

In other reviews some noise issues was mentioned, but we did not experience any of that, the beach in front of the hotel was rather quiet, although a lot of people was passing by all the time, we did not have any noise from the SOS club, and neither from the restaurant below.

The room was really big, very modern and well appointed, the terrace was a perfect spot for both the morning coffee and the sundowner, my advice; go for the ocean view suites.

The (very limited) hotel grounds was utilized very well, we did not have any problems finding beach chairs, and the pool was really nice, although as others have mentioned the proximity to the restaurant areas might not be ideal. Again this hotel is (imo) not a resort hotel, and with the limited space available they have done a really good job, and it is perfect for 3-4 nights while shopping, dining and clubbing in Seminyak. The Spa was excellent, great treatment, nice ambiance and good service. All in all a solid choice in Seminyak unless you want a resort.

The only problems we encountered was a couple of minor issues with drainage in the shower and a drawer that was coming loose. I am not sure if this was just our room, but everything looks perfect from a distance, but whenever you open a drawer, cupboard, etc., you notice that the craftsmanship is probably not world class, hinges are loose, hooks for bathrobes are loose, etc..

Anyhow, as mentioned, Anantara is a solid choice in Seminyak, and we would most likely return to this hotel if we found ourselves in need of a hotel around Seminyak.

Just completed our 4 night stay at this resort and had an absolute blast there. Firstly the resort is located in front of Seminyak beach, even from our suite we were never more than 50 meters away from beach access. Love the suite and the outdoor jacuzzi and day beds. The staff was great and service was impeccable and hard to fault. Everyone went out of their way to make us feel most welcome and relaxed.

It being in Seminyak allowed us to explore the myriad of restaurants and eateries around the hotel. Everything is either within walking distance or a short taxi ride away. We were not confined to dining at the restaurants in the resort. If you have an opportunity to venture out, I would recommend Naughty Nuri's for its excellent ribs and sate and Sardine for contemporary seafood.

The only reason I am giving a 3 star rating for cleanliness is due to the permeating smell from the Toilet cubicle.

Would definitely return to stay here on my next Bali getaway.

We are just back from honeymoon in Bali and I felt I simply had to write a review on this hotel.
We had such a lovely time at Anantara, here are the pro's and con's of our stay, in my opinion, with some tips at the end of the review.

Pro's:
-Amazing staff, SO friendly, genuine and helpful. We felt so well looked after by everyone we met. The front desk organised our fast boat to Nusa Lembongan and it was all so seamless.
-Amazing breakfast: absolutely delicious and the best breakfast out of the three places we stayed, hands down. Great choice and quality and service.
-Fantastic sunset rooftop bar (wasn't busy the nights we were there which was a shame as it's pretty fabulous)
-Pool experience: the staff that take care of you at the pool are fabulous, attentive and friendly. I really felt like everything was taken care of, we were given water, suncream and fruit every day. One day there was chillout music later in the afternoon and we loved that.
-Pool food/room service: always yummy!
-The room: we opted for a sea view and this was definitely the right move. The room was HUGE! Jacuzzi on the balcony, fresh fruit each day, free bottled water, good wi-fi, great shower, huge bath.

Con's (of which there were not many!)
-The room was a little bit frayed around the edges in parts. Nothing too noticeable but would prevent me giving a 5 out of 5 review. For the money we were paying per night in high season I would expect perfection for a 5 out of 5 score.
-It's something small but I had emailed to let them know we were on honeymoon and requesting a specific room based on traveler tips on here. They didn't know this when we checked in and on the second night our room was transformed with flowers and chocolates. This was a lovely, lovely touch but would have been even nicer when we checked in. Very minor but feedback all the same.
-The spa: it's so expensive when compared with other local spa's of the same quality. If it had of been cheaper we would have used it!

Some tips:
-Ensure you check with front desk how much (approx) your taxi should be as the taxi men are chancers, often quoting us twice as much!
-Seminyak footpaths are awful so wear suitable footwear, high heels not advisable unless you are going car to bar!
-Le Sal tapas restaurant is fabulous, we would highly recommend
-If you are going to Ku-de-ta beach club it's a short walk from Anantara, we paid for a taxi and this wasn't necessary!
-We loved Sea Circus, it's a great little place to eat.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Sea view is definitely a must when staying here!

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon in Bali, and I must admit it was well worth the stay.
As soon as we entered the hotel, we were greeted by very courteous and friendly staff, who offered us drinks while we waited to be checked in. The room we got was amazing, a big king size very combatable bed, flat screen TV, a Jacuzzi on the balcony, filled with rose petals. You even get an iPod to listen to music with, while on your stay.
Our stay included (as part of the honeymoon package) included a massage which was really relaxing, and the staff listen to exactly what you require.
The food at the restaurant was excellent, although probably better off walking into town to get a cheaper meal of equal quality. The bar upstairs did some great cocktails, and the view of the sunset was mesmerising, an excellent way to end a perfect day.
