A Weekend Well Spent at the Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak

10 March 2016



What do you look for in a hotel? A well known brand with a reasonable price? Checked. An extensive range of facilities and thoughtful breakfast options? Checked. Decent bed and room size? Convenient location but peaceful and quiet? Free wifi? Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak has it all!

Located right in the heart of Seminyak, the location couldn’t have been much better. We all know Seminyak is the definition of Bali’s most trendy place, home to among the island’s luxurious resorts and host to a number of fine restaurants and boutiques. Seminyak beach is just a 5-minute walk from the hotel and there is a free shuttle buggy to take you to the beach everyday.

From the moment we stepped out of our car, we were ushered into the lobby to sit and enjoy a refreshing drink, popsicle and a cold towel while we were being checked in. What a nice touch to make us happy through the check-in process. There’s also a popcorn machine popping a fresh batch at the corner of the lobby which you can get for free during your stay!

The hotel itself was beautiful, just as we expected. Upon entering the room we were astounded by the sweet touch of lovely macarons as a welcome treat. Elegantly furnished with modern interiors, our Deluxe Pool View rooms include a flat-screen TV, iPod dock and safety box, a minibar and electric kettle. The closet has plenty of clothes hanger, bathrobes, slippers, iron and ironing board. There’s also a small couch and writing desk provided. The bathroom was very spacious with separate toilet and bath. The bath comes with a rainforest shower for an ultimate shower experience. And our favorite part is the balcony where we can enjoy views of the resort pool. We were completely spoilt.

If you don’t feel like going to the beach, you can spend a lazy afternoon by the outdoor pool and order a cool drink from the swim up bar and sunbath in the giant floating beanbags or in one of the comfortable loungers around the pool. The perfect way to enjoy the sunshine. They also offer other activities like bike tour, yoga, bali arts and crafts, etc. Most of these activities are free of charge. Parents who wish to spend some time just together can drop off their little ones at Courtyard’s on-site Kids Club- there’s lots of fun activities and games to keep young minds blissfully occupied.

We had dinner at the in-house Seminyak Kitchen restaurant on the night we arrived. The food was top notch and the service was friendly and helpful. They also serve an impressive buffet breakfast at Seminyak Kitchen every morning. The huge spread of breakfast options was one of the best. From fresh salad, pastries to ice cream. We believe you could have got anything you wanted here.

Overall It was a very pleasant stay. I would recommend, without hesitation, this hotel to everyone visting Bali. Perfect for families, couples, leisure and weekend!
