The Seminyak Beach Resort & Spa
Ranked #30 of 148 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Overall, it was great. The room was modern, clean and stylish. A little worn in places (a light fitting hanging from a ceiling wasn't attractive). It has decent, if a little inconsistent, wi-fi access that was free. A comfy, huge bed. A great shower. Decent information on local interests in the area.

The resort was beautiful with its landscaping, restaurant (we had breakfast there everyday and lunch there occassionally), pools (even though there was some tile maintenance needed in one or two places) and decor. The gym, while small, was great. All new equipment, tv, free water and towels.

The staff were friendly, happy and always remembered your name and details once they heard it. Very nice. Helpful too! We had concerns with our transfer to the next place we were staying at but they were happy to call them let us know the results. Very kind and knowledgeable.

The location was great in some ways and bad in others. There are some AMAZING restaurants in the area - big, small, modern and traditional. You have a lot of choice! Shopping is good too. Better than other areas we went - not so much pushy saleperson... There is also a great convenience store just down the road.

But the beach, while beautiful, had hawkers pretty much from 9am to 7pm and later. Most of the time they are fine with a polite smile and a 'no thank you', but some are quite persistent. I'm not comfortable with this myself but if you are okay with this go for it. I did meet a nice guy who sold watches on the beach, Billy. I ended up buying a watch from him on our last day at the resort. Not because I liked the watch but because Billy had been a gentleman in his approach with us.

We walked every morning and most afternoons along the beach. In some areas it was quite dirty. Such a beautiful beach with rubbish on it in areas. However, the surf looked good (I stayed to the pool) and it was always busy in the afternoon/early evening as the sun went down. (Especially with the local boys playing a game of soccer on the beach.

The resort did offer free shuttle services to other areas and these journeys made be appreciate the resort and the Seminyak area even more.

I would definitely recommend this place to someone who hasn't been to Bali before. If you haven't travelled much or prefer a few comforts this place caters to you perfectly. :)

Room Tip: The room above the concierge is fine - zero noise issues so don't worry about it if you are upgr...

From the moment we stepped out of our car we knew we were somewhere very special. Stunning entrance, greeted by the most pleasant staff. Check in was an absolute breeze. We were then taken to our 2 bedroom Villa and just said "WOW" and we didn't stop saying this the whole time we were there. The staff were truly amazing, so friendly, helpful, polite and remembered our names from word go.The Villa was just gorgeous, 2 huge rooms, incredible pools, stunning living areas, beds heaven. The main pool superb, the spa so indulgent, the sunset beautiful, the food delicious, especially the breakfasts, the grounds immaculate - we just didn't want to leave. We were treated as if we were the only ones there - AMAZING. I can only say do yourself a favour and book NOW you will never want to leave. I wanted to bring the staff and the whole place back with me in my suitcase. Very Satisfied!!!

Room Tip: If travelling with children you must book the 2 bedroom villa. Private, great location, secure.

Stayed in a beach wing room here for 5 nights and really enjoyed this hotel. Staff were friendly, always smiling and extremely helpful and really made it so pleasant to stay here. The location is fantastic on Seminyak Beach and close to Seminyak Square.

The room was ground floor and huge, with a lovely outdoor terrace with lounge overlooking the beautifully landscaped gardens. The room decor was a combination of modern and more traditional Balinese. A full compliment of toiletries were available in the bathroom.

Breakfast consisted of a buffet with plenty of choice and eggs made to order. Had a couple of lunches by the pool and they were good too - especially recommend the sate sticks served on a little coal grill.

Cons: While the beachfront pool is beautiful, there are not a huge number of lounges. Guests tend go to the pool early in the morning and reserve lounges and then disappear for 2 or 3 hours. I think the hotel needs to more proactively monitor this and remove belongings if lounges are left unattended for more than an hour. Also, I could hear quite a bit of traffic noise from the room in the beach wing. While you do get used to this, if you are a very light sleeper it could be bothersome.

Compared to a stay at the W Hotel last year, I much preferred The Seminyak. The latter may not be as fancy but the customer service is far superior.

The facilities rooms gardens and pools are all 1st class. Staff always smiling and never hesitate to help, guards are also great, if you pull up in a taxi they come right over and stand there so the taxi wont do the wrong thing rhen stop traffic if you need to cross the road. All the best places to eat are close and there is no crowded sreets full of guys trying to sell stuff and no yobs either. We were there with teenage children and felt very safe.

Loved our stay, new, clean, happy staff and very relaxing. Resort was luxurious, loved the endless pool that extended to the beach view. Will be back, might try a villa next time.

Room Tip: Ocean view room was nice, can hear the waves!

We stayed around New Year’s, one night in a 1 bedroom villa and other nights in a standard (1 King) room. The property is lovely; the staff professional and courteous. The oceanfront villa was stunning. The standard room was very nice. The food was fine. The fitness center, sadly, was a bit lacking; it was far too small for such a large property. All that said, if you’re looking for a comfortable resort experience, this is a great choice. It felt, to me, however, a bit too much like I could have been on a resort anywhere in the world. I’d stay again if I just wanted posh pool time and the like; I’d probably choose something else (and probably in a different town than Seminyak) if I wanted to experience more Balinese culture.
