Romantic Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa
Bali is one of those destinations that once you arrive you fall in the love with the place, it is rich in history, traditions with a wonderful and diverse culture and lovely smiling people and magical festivals.
The hardest decision you will have to make when planning your trip to Bali is where to stay. Resorts, villas, hotels the options are endless. But we will save you the hassle and tell you our top pick.
The Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa
As a couple without children, we always try and look for accommodation that is more adult orientated, close to the beach, romantic setting, has an infinity pool with a view (if possible) and close to shops and restaurants. The Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa provides exactly this. We have stayed here twice now and for us to stay in the same resort for two years running means it is very special.
The Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa is located directly on Seminyak beach and in the heart of upmarket Seminyak. Surrounded by amazing world-class restaurants, cafes, bars and beach clubs. The resort is also within easy walking distance to designer and boutique shopping experiences. See MAP details.
Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa have a selection of accommodation options from Garden Wing Rooms (important to note these are located in a building across the road), through to the 2 Bedroom Garden Pool Villas.
Both times we have stayed we have opted for the Beach Wing Rooms and requested the ground floor so we can step straight out onto the patio and enjoy views of the beautiful tranquil garden and within close proximity to the amazing 10m x 45m infinity pool.
The Beach Wing Rooms provide you with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The rooms offer a contemporary design with Balinese tradition, a patio with day bed, comfortable king bed, TV and ensuite with a rain shower and soaking tub. The soaking tub is a nice to have however does take up a large amount of space in the bathroom and being so hot we never felt the need to fill the bath.

To be truthful one of the main reasons we originally picked to stay at Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa was because of the pictures and reviews about the pool. We are beach people and if we can get a pool, especially an infinity pool right on the beach, we are sold.
The 10m x 45m infinity pool really is spectacular, you can spend all day just lounging by the pool, swimming, reading a book and enjoying the wonderful view of the beach.
Another feature to make you linger even longer is the pool service. You can order food and drinks including pizza, sandwiches, chips, cocktails, beer and non-alcoholic drinks without even leaving the pool. What more could you ask for?
One of our favourite parts of the day was the wonderful sunsets and with the infinity pool positioned right on the beach, it is always a perfect setting.
We loved grabbing a cocktail or beer to enjoy the magical backdrop of the Indian Ocean and legendary Seminyak sunset.
There are lots of sun loungers and umbrellas, however, you do sit quite close to your neighbour, though we never felt cramped or the pool never felt overcrowded.
If you are more the type of person that wants a swim-up bar then head to the other side next to the chapel, this is also a great area for outside dining and lounging under the cabanas.
Within the resort there are beautiful landscaped gardens, fishponds, cabanas and wonderful Balinese sculptures, when you come off the Seminyak streets you really feel like you are in a wonderful peaceful haven.
If you feel like getting some exercise while you are on holiday head to the resort gym or why not take some time out from sitting by the pool or shopping and head to the Kahyangan Spa for a Balinese massage.
Sanje Resturant and Lounge
As this was our second time to the resort we were offered the option of breakfast at the Sanje Resturant and Lounge which we were happy to accept as the restaurant sits directly on the beach front.
Being such a wonderful location we enjoyed having breakfast there every morning.
Which included a wonderful fresh smoothie/juice, coffee or tea, fruit platter and you can select from an ala-carte menu (offering local and international flavours).
My favourite was the wonderful smoothie bowls and l think Greg just worked his way through the menu.
The restaurant offers lunch and dinner with delectable and healthy Mediterranean fare, fused with local flavours.
At night the restaurant is transformed with candlelit tables and ambient live music. There are also themed nights such as the Fishermen's Night – offering sparklingly-fresh seafood delights barbequed to order, as well as loaded platters of oysters, prawn and calamari salads, sushi, ceviche and more.
The Santan Resturant is an open-sided, dining pavilion which is surrounded by ponds and tropical gardens. You can have breakfast at the Satan with an option of buffet or Al Carte options, they also offer lunch and dinner with a variety of Indonesian and regional food using fresh and local ingredients. The Santan Resturant is where guest also enjoys complimentary high tea daily.
On our first visit to the resort, we had a private dining option included in our package, this included a romantic 3-course dinner on the balcony of the chapel overlooking the beach.
The area was set up with beautiful candles and a lovely setting to watch the sunset while enjoying a beautiful meal.
The day before we were asked to pick our meal so it meant the night was stressfree and we could just enjoy the evening and the wonderful personal service. We really enjoyed the experience and was something we had not done before and we would do again.
So if you can pull yourself away from the pool and the lovely tropical gardens and surroundings of The Seminyak Beach Spa and Resort head out and explore the trendy and vibrant neighbourhood, with wonderful first-class restaurants and bars with the famous Kudeta restaurant and lounge bar right next door..
So go ahead and Book Seminyak Beach Resort and Spa you won't regret it
Until our next journey, talk soon Charlotte and Greg.
