When you’re ready to retreat from Seminyak’s cafe-packed streets or DJ-driven pool parties and nightclubs, these nine elegant, Zen-filled resorts — with their green gardens, luxurious suites, and peaceful, private villas — will transport you to another Bali altogether. Take a look at our list of the top luxury hotels in Seminyak, Bali.
The 60-room Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, Bali, is a luxury boutique resort located right on picturesque Seminyak Beach. The all-suites accommodations have a clean-lined, Zen-inspired aesthetic and walk-in rainfall showers. The hotel has two pools -- one infinity-edge, overlooking the beach and the ocean; the other, surrounded by a lush, serene courtyard. Two acclaimed Thai-Indonesian restaurants include a rooftop that's one of Seminyak's coolest nightlife spots. Anantara Spa is one of the island's most decadent spas, offering a full range of beauty and wellness treatments.
The 52-room Samaya Bali is an all-villa, beachfront luxury property offering amazing ocean views throughout, with restaurants and attractions a five-minute walk away. Modern Villas have humungous bathrooms with jetted tubs and rainfall showerheads, private outdoor pools, free minibars, and 24-hour butler service, but some have minimum stay requirements. Hotel highlights include beach access and two outdoor pools, and there are two on-site restaurants and an included a la carte breakfast. Other features include a contemporary spa and a fitness center with free yoga classes along with free Wi-Fi and a free area shuttle. This is one of the top options in the area; The Layar is comparably luxurious but not on the beach.
Sixteen private villas have beautiful private gardens and pools, as well as open-air living rooms with kitchenettes and dining areas. Massive, luxurious bathrooms are outfitted with soaking tubs and walk-in rainfall showers. Other lavish extras include a host of freebies like breakfast, afternoon tea, and daily fruit baskets, plus there’s a spa on-site. The gorgeous, lush grounds include a stunning outdoor pool and a restaurant, and though the beach is a bit far, the hotel offers free area shuttles (as well as airport transfers). Travelers seeking something closer to the beach might want to consider the Oberoi Bali or Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, both of which are beachfront.
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
