Had a blissful six nights at The Colony last month and would highly recommend to couples or groups of friends.
The room was large, clean, well-equipped and the bathroom was huge with a lovely shower and a seemingly unending supply of fresh towels and water. The beds were comfy and the air con worked perfectly.
The breakfasts were fantastic, a good choice, all freshly made to order and served out on the pool terrace. Fluffy banana pancakes with honey and lime in the sunshine - blissful! My only tiny niggle is that the orange juice doesn't taste like any other orange juice I've had elsewhere...
The service was personal and extremely polite. The front desk welcomed us warmly, helped us with restaurant/taxi bookings, and were very accomodating with a couple of special requests. They always seemed to be doing 'that big extra' (cutting down the brown leaves from the trees so that they didn't fall, decorating the loungers with flowers, bringing you a drink of ice water...)
The 'feel' of the hotel is exclusive, classy and quiet without the price tag being too high. The pool was just the right size and temperature for doing a few lengths, and it's a beautiful sight from any angle, day or night, with beautiful flowers and palm trees surrounding it. One of the high points is the location - only a few minutes walk to some of the best restaurants, beachclubs and bars (La Lucciola, Ku De Ta, Potato Head, Petitenget etc.) and maybe a couple more to Seminyak Square, Chandi, and the main strip of shops. Taxis are always available outside.
I should also add that we didn't see a single mosquito in the hotel grounds/the room.
I normally have a few niggles to add here but I honestly can't think of anything! Yes there's some construction out the front (new restaurant) but it's not disruptive and there's construction everywhere in Bali! So go forth and enjoy!
