The Colony Hotel Bali
Ranked #3 of 121 Seminyak B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Stayed at Colony for 3 nights with my family. We chose to stay there mainly to get a little bit away from the typical bustling atmosphere of Seminyak. The hotel is still very close to the main Seminyak district, and its a bout a 5 min walk from the beach and main Seminyak area. We booked two rooms.

First thing i must say-this hotel has one of the best bathrooms, even comparable to the big-named hotels. The showers are fantastic, with sunlight access.

The bedroom is also a nice size. I think they could've done a better job with the bed as it is not as comfortable as I would like it to be. The work desk area in the room is also not that necessary- given that its mainly used to plug computers and phones, and the corner for working area is a tad too small.

For the main space in the hotel, the pool is a fantastic communal area. It shares an area with the dining area as well. I think with the space they have, the hotel has done a good job maximizing the area.

Service wise- its efficient and fast. Not too many bells and whistles, but they get the job done.

Breakfast-nothing too special, but the fried rice is above average. Thankfully, the hotel is close by to several breakfast area in Seminyak. So we had quite a few number of options to try.

Overall- i would rate the hotel as very good, given the value as well as location. Bedding can be improved, but thats probably the main thing that needs to be fixed.

The Colony Hotel Seminyak is a real find amongst the hassle and bustle. Located right in the middle of seminyak beach area on Jl. Laksmana, surrounded by restaurants and bars at all end of the scale and the beach across the road.
When you enter the premises, it's calm, stylish and beautifully presented, it is small and boutique, gorgeous private centre pool and cafe with most rooms either opening onto the pool or overlooking. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful and with very few rooms and no children policy, it's perfect.
Thank you for an amazing stay, ill be back for sure.

The Colony hotel is a hidden gem of peaceful and tranquil moments away from the hustle and bustle if Seminyak. The hotel is within a few minutes walk to the beach, town and lots of restaurants. Great small and quiet pool in the center courtyard and excellent food at the restaurant. Amazing staff is what makes the place truly amazing! A must for those visiting Seminyak.

I couldn't recommend this hotel more highly. It is a quiet boutique hotel in busy Seminyak. The staff couldn't be friendlier or better. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was beautiful and clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The 20 rooms are built about a swimming room but there is no noise whatsoever. The breakfast is wonderful and relaxed and is served by the pool. The location is great and within walking distance of so many excellent restaurants. When I next return to Bali I shall be staying there again.

From the time of check-in at this small 20 room hotel made us feel relaxed and welcome and special.

The staff and management of the hotel deserve much credit for their can-do and friendly, happy Balinese relationship with their guests.

Wifi is available throughout the hotel.

After eight nights stay it was still difficult to leave.

We finished off our stay in Bali last week with 3 days at The Colony in Seminyak and we were absolutely delighted with our stay and really didn't want to leave! I had read all the very positive reviews on Trip Advisor and went ahead with the booking hoping that the hotel would live up to its reputation. I am happy to report that it certainly did and more!

The Colony is located directly across the street from Samaya and just up from The Legian, so an excellent position on Jalan Oberoi. The hotel is set back from the street so there is no noise whatsoever making it a peaceful haven in what can be a rather noisy road in Seminyak. The hotel has built an extension on the front of the hotel which is going to be their main restaurant but is not yet open. We loved the look of the hotel and were pleased that it looked exactly like the photos on the hotel's website. The rooms are built around a central courtyard that houses a small swimming pool and the breakfast area as well as a few sun loungers and tables.

Our room (No. 11) was located upstairs on the second floor and was very comfortable and well-appointed with a wonderful bathroom. Our only disappointment was that the windows of the room looked out onto a wall so there was no view whatsoever but I suppose that is inevitable because of the design of the hotel. Many of the other rooms have views of the pool area. Room No. 5 even has a lovely balcony and is probably one of the most desirable rooms in the hotel. Perhaps when booking it is best to find out what view the rooms have and choose accordingly.

The breakfast was served every morning on the terrace near the pool and was lovely. Not a huge selection but adequate and well-prepared. Our only complaint would be the French-press coffee which wasn't really that nice as we always ended up with lots of 'sludge' in the bottom of our coffee cups which wasn't particularly pleasant. Perhaps just normal brewed coffee or lattes or cappuccinos would be a better alternative. The staff at the restaurant are polite and efficient and do their job very well.

We were very impressed with the staff at The Colony. Tami and Adrian were a great source of information about where to go, where to eat and what to do in the area and they both do their job very well. All the staff were professional and efficient in carrying out their various tasks. The rooms were absolutely spotless, as was the whole hotel.

There is a wonderful sense of peace and quiet that pervades everything at The Colony and it is the sort of place where you can relax totally. The absence of kids is much appreciated- we had spent the previous 4 nights at The Conrad in Tanjung Benoa which was lovely but full of cute but noisy little ones, so the contrast when we arrived at The Colony was striking. Seminyak tends to be quite noisy so it was always a relief to arrive back at the hotel which is a bit of an oasis of calm in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the outside world.

We loved our stay at The Colony and can't wait to return. Many thanks to Adrian, Tami and the whole staff for making our few days at their lovely hotel so memorable.

Room Tip: Probably the nicest rooms are No. 12, No. 5 and No. 3 which are all on the second floor overlooking...

The Colony is a fantastic hotel. Would support all the positive reviews here in relation to its location, style & design, the amazing staff & the tranquil atmosphere.
We were surprised at how busy Seminyak is, so we were very glad to arrive back to the hotel each night as it was like a different world. We stayed in Junior Suite 12 (gorgeous room with balcony over looking the property and pool) and it was our Honeymoon. We were due to stay four nights but ended up staying a fifth as we enjoyed it so much.
It's close to the best bars, restaurants, massage parlours and the beach.
Staff are so nice (from Tami who patiently dealt with all our initial requests) to the numerous staff on site. Breakfast was lovely.
Highly recommend the Colony; a great place.
