Bali, the island of sunshine, smiles and surfing. There are so many areas to explore on the island whether you are looking for surfing, relaxation, culture, hiking or yoga retreats the island has it all. Seminyak is the centre for Bali’s trendy nightlife with beach clubs, flash restaurants and bars along with some divine boutiques (where you could lose a LOT of your cash).
So as you might imagine Seminyak also has a LOT of hotels and villas to choose from for your stay. If picturesque, quiet boutique hotels are your thing then The Colony Hotel is the one for you. With a strict policy of no children under 16 this hotel is ideal for couples or groups of friends and is a short walking distance from the main hub of Seminyak and Potato Head beach club.
How to get there
The hotel is situated within the heart of Seminyak a short walk from Potato Head and Ku de ta and around a 10 minute walk from the main strip called Jalan Laksmana. It takes around half an hour to drive from the airport and there are plenty of restaurants and shops located a short walk away.
The ground floor Deluxe room leads directly off the courtyard pool making it feel very much like your own luxurious home, where you can wake up and spill out into the pool for a refreshing wake up dip.
The room has everything you can wish for from comfy double bed, safety deposit box, seating area, hair dryer etc.
A Continental Breakfast was included in the room rate and is served next to the pool each morning. We didn’t eat any other food in the hotel instead choosing to venture to one of the many nearby cafes and restaurants. Click for recommendations on where to eat.
The pool is the heart of this boutique hotel with all of the rooms overlooking it’s shiny depths. By day it is a social mecca for guests to chat and discuss their newly discovered Bali wonders and by night it turns into a romantic low lit venue, perfect for a late night swim with your special someone.
The service here was excellent and friendly and the rooms were kept very clean and tidy during my stay. The location is excellent and the price reasonable for what you get in return.
I really had none apart from there were no bath robes. You see!
I would recommend requesting a room away from the breakfast area if you are looking for a lie in as the noise from breakfast can be a little loud.
