Beautiful place to stay , we had our own suite upstairs it was fabulous. The staff were incredible. The breakfasts were delivered to our suite every morning by the staff. Excellent. The jacuzzi on our balcony needed to be cleaner for us as we were worried .

Had a wonderful stay at the Seminyak beach resort and spa. Clean spacious rooms with lovely grounds and pool area. Impeccable service and very accommodating of dietary requirements. Dekta ( one of the hotel staff) especially was very helpful during our stay and provided excellent service. 100% recommend.

This hotel is very beautiful and well maintained. The pools are heaven on earth - the infinity pool is gorgeous and the swim up bar is so beautiful. Rooms were cleaned twice daily and the rooms are very nice. The bathroom needed a bit of a scrub around the edges but other than that very clean. I know that it is a very upmarket resort but it is not cheap. We found it to be the same price as home (Australia) in terms of food and drink prices. Charge to get from airport to hotel is 520,000IDR - expensive right?! But was a very good car ride.

What a lovely resort. Excellent service from the moment we arrived at the airport, where we were met by our driver from the Resort, to check in, which was efficient, complete with cool towels and a drink, and our rooms (2) which were on the lower floor beach wing (rooms 3109 and 3110), with terrace opening onto the lovely lawn gardens, sweeping down to the pools and Seminyak Beach. There were a couple of issues with housekeeping, where fresh towels were overlooked but this was corrected without too much fuss. We also had key access failure and safe code failure but each was corrected promptly. The staff were always available and helpful. The infinity pool is really beautiful, and the service around the pool was excellent, in particular I recall Januarad who was particularly helpful. As regulars of Padma, Legian, this was our first visit and we fell in love with the resort, the location and the staff. So much so, that a planned visit to Padma in October has been cancelled in favour of the Seminyak Beach Resort.

This place is amazing. Perfect location. Luxurious rooms and highest standards for service. I love the restaurant Santan on this gorgeous property. My favorite server was a Balinese named Dekta and Rocky was on point for room service. Thank you to everyone else too at this special place.

After staying at Mulia we stayed here for six days....the staff were not at the same standard nothing at this hotel was....the rooms were spacious but tired this place needs an overhaul badly and works outside were very loud...our “ocean view room” ( if you stood on tiptoes) on the balcony was a joke ....the night of the party was right when their silence day started....and this was when a handful of staff and the French manager really excelled it was a fantastic night....and kudos to the wonderful pregnant staff member at the bar inside you went above and beyond I hope your new baby a boy I believe due end of April is happy and healthy ......interesting to note that this place cost $1000 less than Mulia (8 days) this six days and staff and facilities no where near as good....but hey it was around the corner from Seminyak shopping and eateries and right next to Ku De Ta so maybe that’s why Ps laundry across the road did eight days washing and ironing for $13 dollars Australian

This was our 3rd stay at Seminyak Beach Resort. We won’t be back and no one will care about this review because most people seem to give it 4 or 5 our of 5. I’ve realised most people have low standards and are happy to pay top dollar for substandard service.... Bali is no longer cheap, restaurants are expensive and drinks, especially wine are a killer. People who say Bali is cheap are happy to pay for average food in Warungs and stay in average villas and spend all day at Potato Head. There are some lovely cheap restaurants, that don't cater to the masses, but they are rare. So many lovely new hotels and Airbnb’s available now that we don’t NEED to come back to this resort. PROS Outstanding location. The pool areas are awesome (although I question the new wood around the pool, it’s already buckling) Rooms are hit and miss and thankfully the sulphur smell in the bathrooms and the front fountain seems to have been seen to. Friendly staff The grounds are lovely. Sanje restaurant is in the best spot on the beach in Seminyak. Shame NO-ONE goes there. Turn it into a bar area instead which could then be an added bonus to the wedding chapel area. See? Commonsense? We ended up going to W Hotel and beach bars for the sunset views and drinks. Shame, when the best spot was right at our hotel, but with no people and no vibe, why bother? CONS - Where to start.... No pickup service from airport. In the day or Airbnb this has to change. Being told that you have to stay a minimum of 3 times before you get to be picked up for free is ridiculous, especially when you arrive and see how many people are standing around doing nothing. How to piss people off... Usual drama with rooms, check-in is always soooo slow. Telling us that people who book through the website get better looked after also doesn’t help. Whilst I understand that may show loyalty it also shows stupidity for the people who do, as the bookings through 3rd party websites are cheaper and have better deals. The hotel has to work with this. Our friends arrived to their room to find it filthy with the aircon not working and the plumbing clogged up. The cleaners would have discovered the plumbing problem if they cleaned the room in the first place. The sink had a ring around it.. Service is appalling. Being friendly is great but it means diddly squat if you have to wave down people for towels and drinks. People can be rude to staff, but usually it's because of sheer frustration at the staff's inability to think and anticipate customers needs. They need a flag system around the pool to gain someone, anyone’s attention. Having to go to the swim up pool bar or wave your hands to the newly built bar at the end of the main pool 30 metres away to get someone’s attention is pathetic. Try find the towel guy, even harder! Ordered a steak sandwich but there wasn’t any steaks even though it was in the board as special of the day. This also happened last trip. The staff are not properly trained. There is a serious lack of common sense and lethargy. We ordered SAN Miguel, Prosecco, Champagne and a different champagne from a different menu, only to be told that none were available. When we finally managed to get a champagne it was hot and I mean HOT. Same for any beer ordered. They have NO clue how to keep anything cold. It got to the state where we would ensure that they put beers and champagne in an esky with ice for us in the morning in order for the drinks to be cold enough for us to drink later in the day. We watched them put them in, but the drinks still came out warm because it never occurred to them to top up the ice so everything just melted. You get the feeling that the staff truly don’t care. I watched time and time again as people sent drinks back because they were warm. Who is the Operations Manager? They should be sacked for not training staff properly. How do they not know to order stock before it runs out? Our friend went down to Sanje (the hotel's outdoor restaurant) to order a coffee at 8am. It was 10 minutes before he was served and another 10 before he signalled the waitress to ask where his coffee was. It never came but the waitress came to him with the bill... even though she watched him NOT get his coffee. We spoke to the Manager who was nice enough about our concerns. Whilst speaking to him we pointed out the badly peeling wedding/reception room with rust marks all over the eaves and in dire need of a new paint job. The curtains are filthy. He told us that all that type of work was done in the off season. We pointed out that we were currently in the off season. It was nice to see painting being done the next day, albeit badly (so much on the windows) by the staff. How much smarter to hire a paint company and have it done in 2 days max than the staff do it for 30 minutes a day. We ended up going to to main pool for the last couple of days because they painted in the middle of the day and it was intrusive.Do it in the morning when no-one is about maybe? Wifi is very hit and miss. The hotel is looking very tired. Whilst walking towards the main lobby, my friend saw 7 tiles break off from one of the upstairs rooms and land in the koi pond. A couple of them were still in the pond when we left. The pool areas on close inspection have lots of tiles missing and the pool bar tiles are in need of repair. We commented that the same tiles that were off in September when we visited were still off.

Friendly and efficient staff, beautiful grounds, good food, large rooms, gorgeous pool overlooking the beach and fabulous sunsets. We had reservations at another resort and, upon checking in, decided it wasn't what we were hoping for. We made a last minute change to The Seminyak Beach Resort & Spa and were sooooo glad we did!!!

Our special anniversary was spent in a villa with a beach view and private pool. From the moment we arrived, service was impeccable. A warn greeting from the staff that continued for the whole stay. Taking care of all our needs with big smiles made this an occasion to remember. The beautiful grounds with an amazing tropical setting make for a special holiday. Location is perfect for seminyak, it a comfortable walk to all the important stuff. Thank you for the wonderful experience

The Seminyak is a relatively small luxury resort with direct access to a sandy beach and within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, and nightlife. The hotel’s 105 stylish rooms and private villas have local accents like wood carvings and polished hardwood floors plus amenities such as free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, deep soaking tubs, and iPod docks. Villas have private pools, and open living and dining areas overlooking the garden. The hotel has two restaurants, a spa, a fitness center, and daily activities for all ages. But the highlight here is the oceanfront infinity pool, complete with stunning sea views and a lounge area with bar service. Travelers looking for even more local charm can consider neighboring The Oberoi, though rates will be higher.
