In the heart of bustling Seminyak sits a resort bathed in whitewashed colonial splendour. We’re talking about The Colony Hotel, a quaint boutique hotel offering a tinge of nostalgia along with the natural luxurious comforts of Bali. Hidden beyond a high-walled garden flourishing with bougainvillea shrubs and orchids, The Colony Hotel offers an oasis of calm amidst the harried activity of the neighbourhood’s many star attractions.
Those looking for a quiet, grown-up getaway will find it in the The Colony Hotel, which boasts 20 elegant rooms and suites overlooking a glassy turquoise lap pool. The property stands out for its colonial-inspired design, which extends from all-white exteriors with whitewashed columns and balconies to floor-length French windows and wrought-iron lanterns. With its bar on any guests under the age of 16, The Colony offers an atmosphere of cool and calm that most can appreciate. Interiors too, allude to a colonial style, with dark wood furnishings and black and white wall portraits.
The hotel is also the perfect base from which to explore Seminyak’s main draws. Revel in uninterrupted views of the sunset at the famed Petitenget Beach, just 5 minutes away on foot or enjoy its close proximity to local institutions like La Lucciola, Sea Circus and Potato Head.
