With a dazzling blend of beachfront beauty, effervescent entertainment, boutique shopping outlets, luxury resorts and decadent dining venues; it’s no surprise that Seminyak has become one of Bali’s most popular holiday hot-spots (and one of our Travel Team’s favourite destinations!).

On this occasion, we were in for a real treat and enjoyed a fresh take on the lively beachside district on Bali’s stunning west coast from the perfect launching pad of the newly-opened Courtyard by Marriott.

The Resort

Situated in the heart of Seminyak, Courtyard by Marriott provides inviting accommodation in 290 designer rooms and suites set against the sun-drenched backdrop of one of Bali’s most iconic locales. Despite having only opened its doors to the public just a few short months ago, Courtyard is already receiving rave reviews on TripAdvisor thanks to an irresistible blend of five-star service, convenient facilities and stylish accommodations.

The Rooms

Guests are invited to relax and unwind in a series of spectacular modern guestrooms and suites that exude sophistication, decadence and subtle hints of Balinese charm. Most properties feature a plush king-size bed, gorgeous ensuite bathroom containing a rain-shower and premium Nirvae amenities, an LED TV, mini-bar, writing desk and a private balcony.

Our Upgraded Deluxe Pool View Room served as a plush haven and welcoming refuge from the unrelenting Balinese sun, while the highly sought-after Deluxe Pool Terrace Rooms offered direct access to one of the property’s interlinking series of gorgeous turquoise swimming pools.

Dining

Speaking of the pool, we absolutely adored Courtyard’s Pool Bar & Lounge – a super-cool hangout spot with a swim-up service bar that dispenses thirst-quenching cocktails and delicious lunch items all day long.

Courtyard by Marriott

Our Travel team couldn’t get enough of their signature ‘Bloody Mary Burgers’ (served with an accompanying shot of the namesake cocktail) and crispy Bintang Fried Chicken – think KFC with the added indulgence of Bintang Beer-infused batter!

Courtyard by Marriott

Mornings at the resort also presented us with moments to savour – Courtyard’s in-house Seminyak Kitchen boasts Seminyak’s best breakfast; the delectable buffet-style eatery dishes up irresistible servings of all your western and eastern favourites from eggs cooked a variety of ways, to fresh tropical fruits and more.

Courtyard by Marriott

The inviting restaurant also set the scene for a mouth-watering ‘Taste of Bali’ dining experience that showcased classic Balinese cuisine with bold modern twists.

Facilities

Courtyard by Marriott also presents guests with a range of on-site facilities to enjoy including the Zanti Retreat Spa, three stunning sky-blue swimming pools, sunken pool bar, in-house Seminyak Kitchen restaurant, handy concierge desk and a fully-equipped fitness centre. Our group was also granted unlimited complimentary access to the 24-hour gym which definitely came in handy after our culinary indulgences!

Courtyard by Marriott

The Zanti Spa is certainly a place where indulgence is in no short supply – choose from a relaxing array of soothing treatments ranging from rejuvenating facials to deep tissue massages that will leave you feeling utterly pampered.

While mum and dad enjoy some downtime at the spa, the little ones are sure to love running amok at Courtyard’s on-site Kids Club – there’s lots of fun activities and games to keep young minds blissfully occupied.

Out & About

The chic establishment is also close to all that Seminyak is famous for – from the clubs, bars and dining venues of the town’s main street (affectionately coined ‘Eat Street’); to the sandy shores of the beachfront (only ten-minutes away on foot). Some of the most famous locations are the Ku De Ta and Potato Head Beach Clubs, where you can hang out right throughout the day – from breakfast to sunset, and then enjoy an evening dinner and cocktails beyond!

Courtyard by Marriott

The engaging Bali Nusa Dua Theatre is also a leisurely drive away. The theatre is home to the incredible Devdan Cultural Show – a spectacular sound, light and acrobatic display that takes centre stage and leaves audiences awed with a mix of traditional song, dance and flair.

Courtyard by Marriott

You can even choose to head in-land to the charming Ubud region where you can experience true Balinese village life, immerse yourself amid pristine rainforest scenery, and peruse markets laden with locally-made handicrafts.

Courtyard by Marriott

The brand-new Courtyard by Marriott has only just unwrapped and discarded its grand opening ribbon, but Seminyak’s newest resort is already proving to be an instant hit with Balinese-bound travellers.

TripAdvisor Reviews

“Perfect hotel for young & old”

Five out of five stars – Reviewed 2 December 2014

“Stayed at this amazing hotel in October of this year. I cannot say a bad word about it. From when we arrived and the staff came and opened our doors, grabbed our bags and offered us a welcome drink and cold towel. The rooms are a good size and everything is so neat and tidy. The staff are all so welcoming and so nice they walk around the pool all day offering free refreshments and always asking how you are and how has your day been. They also have a lot of activities going on around the pool all day from games to water aerobics. I would recommend to everyone and when my girlfriend and I go back to Bali we will be staying here again.”

“Fantastic Hotel in a Great Location”

Five out of five stars – Reviewed 1 December 2014

“I stayed here with a friend towards the end of a 10 day trip to Bali/Gili. It was absolute luxury. Highlights included the amazing buffet breakfast spread, hot water and fantastic shower pressure, clean bedrooms with new facilities, block out curtains, fantastic pools, lovely attentive staff, free fast in-room wifi. It is in a great location – short taxi ride to the heart of Seminyak or Legian, but with lots of cheap massage places, restaurants, bars and convenience stores right next door. I would definitely stay here again.”

“This new hotel rocks an incredible breakfast!”

Five out of five stars – Reviewed 19 November 2014

“We stayed here during October for one week and enjoyed every moment. Our room on the pool side of the hotel was a good size and clean too. The pools were great and made to suit adults and children. But, the buffet breakfast was by far the most amazing breakfast we’ve ever had at any hotel EVER. There is such a wide selection and every possible breakfast option you can imagine – including ice-cream to top it off as you walk out the door and into the sunshine. Both Balinese and ‘Western’ selections were plentiful. Having never been to Bali, Brad at the front desk gave us some ideas for day trips out of Seminyak as well as local places within walking distance and/or taxi to dine. The beach to watch the sunsets is a short walk from the hotel. Our package deal at the hotel included wifi and breakfast which were fantastic to have. We wouldn’t hesitate to return to this hotel.”
