Seminyak is an upmarket enclave of Bali which adds a sense of style and sophistication to the island’s sun, sea and sand. Located in the heart of this trendy coastal community, Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort provides the perfect place to stay for guests seeking a contemporary beachfront break, while also embracing the spiritual side of the “Island of the Gods”.
Nestled on the shore, Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort has been designed in a modern architectural style with straight lines and clean edges. And yet, this chic low-rise retreat does not feel out of place – in fact, it seems to blend seamlessly into its surroundings. This is partly due to the lush tropical gardens, shimmering pools and ponds which blur the boundaries with nature.
Following a recent renovation, the 59 spacious suites now reflect an authentic yet understated design, along with cutting-edge amenities. Three types of suite are available, each of which promises an impressive 80 square metres of space for up to three guests, a separate living area, smart TV, Harman Kardon sound system, espresso machine, rain shower, separate bathtub and an outdoor jacuzzi. The Seminyak Suites overlook the resort’s pool, while the Seminyak Ocean Suites offer stunning sea and sunset views. The top room category, the Seminyak Pool Suite, also features a spacious sea-facing terrace and direct access to the pool.
By day, guests relax on a sun lounger or beanbag whilst gazing out across the Indian Ocean, or plunge into the infinity pool. Alternatively, the resort’s spectacular rooftop spa promises an extensive selection of wellness treatments, including Balinese massages, natural scrubs and wraps that use local herbs and spices. Beauty therapies and couples’ treatments are also available. With panoramic views as far as Mount Batukaru, this is a serene sanctuary for the senses which feels far away from the outside world.
Wellness is an important part of life in Bali. The resort’s resident yogi, Pak Made, leads bi-weekly yoga classes, allowing visitors to rediscover their equilibrium, while more active workouts can be enjoyed at the resort’s state-of-the-art fitness centre. Alternatively, guests can simply swim in the sea or stroll along the soft sandy beach.
Exceptional cuisine can be discovered every day at MoonLite Kitchen & Bar, an elegant open-air restaurant that serves Asian and international dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while SOS (Sunset on Seminyak) is a lively beach club – ideal for cool drinks and light snacks, including its signature afternoon tea. Couples seeking a little more privacy can enjoy 24-hour in-room dining, or arrange a table for two on the shoreline with Anantara’s exclusive Dining by Design concept. Finally, Indonesia’s culinary secrets can be uncovered with a cooking class.
Surrounded by Seminyak’s chic boutiques and bars, Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort is a fashionable five-star retreat that showcases the island’s classical and contemporary charm.
