"Outstanding service and amenities"
The staff at The Colony are extremely friendly, eager to please, and helpful. Could not fault the service or the amenities. Breakfast was great and terrific value. The rooms are very well appointed, quiet and private. Serviced every day, turn down service, adequate minibar at very reasonable prices. The location is close to the beach, an easy walk to […] KuDeTa and restaurants, and the Seminyak shopping precinct is a very short walk through a access road to Seminyak Square, 5 mins away (don't walk the long way around Jl Laksmana). $2 cab ride to Jl Dhyana Pura. Hotel organised transfer back to the airport was excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little slice of heaven"
The Colony Hotel is a haven of tranquility and luxury in the bustling and sometimes crazy world of Bali. It's nice to be able to shelter oneself from the hustle and bustle in a beautiful enclave. The Colony has a range of room sizes on offer including some fabulous suites. Staff are attentive without being obtrusive and the location can't be faulted […] being directly opposite the Samaya Beach resort. A wonderful hotel to stay. Highly recommended and good value for money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable, quiet boutique hotel"
Pros - Great location right smack in the middle of Seminyak. - Extremely quiet and private - perfect for a romantic getaway Cons - Wireless Internet was rather slow. Had to come out to the courtyard to get faster speeds - Fruits in fruit bowl in the room was not very fresh. Should be replaced daily.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really enjoyed our two nights at the Colony and would have liked to stay a bit longer. At first we were worried that the hotel was quite small but it was perfect for a few nights. I probably wouldn't have wanted to stay more then 3-4 nights though because spending time by the pool might have become a bit boring. Excellent location right in the good […] part of seminyak- walk to sea circus (about 20 steps!), potato head, la lucciola etc. Beautiful rooms that are well fit out. Choice of pillows was nice! Amazing shower. Staff were very helpful with check in/ booking at restaurants. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The best hotel in Bali so far!"
My finace and I go to Bali 2-3 times per year and have stayed at a range of places - both hotels and villas. I cannot say enough good things about The Colony! It is a wonderful hotel - lovely pool that gets both sun and shade, comfy pool lounges and beds, excellent staff who were always on hand if you needed anything but not in your face. We had a junior […] suite and it was HUGE! The rooms are in excellent condition and kept super clean. Staff come in at least two times per day to clean up and replenish the free bottles of water provided by the hotel. The Colony is in an excellent location - 10min walk to the main shopping strip of Seminyak with restaurants like Rumours, Cafe Bali, Chandi etc. 5min walk to Kudeta, La Luciola, and the beach. I don't think we'll stay anywhere else in our future trips to Bali! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent hotel for those looking for a quiet night away from the bustle of Seminyak but within a few minutes walk to town. Great location close to the beach, temple and lots of restaurants. Hotel is extremely clean and well maintained with an incredible staff. Don't forget to check out Petitenget for breakfast right across from the temple. This hotel […] is a true gem and a must stay in Seminyak. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel - Good position."
Great small (20 rooms) hotel in good position in Seminyak.....right across the road from the beach, Samaya Resort & Breeze Restaurant and right next door to Sea Circus restaurant....great fresh food and Hotel Mexicana (restaurant) and Body Works just around the corner. In other words The Colony is in a great position and within walking distance of many […] other shops and restaurants. The staff were very helpful from booking restaurants, finding and ringing phone numbers for us, organising anything we wanted really and the breakfast was very good. The touch of bringing us without being asked, an iced water and an icy pole ice cream when we were lazing around the pool was very nice also. Would recommend staying there especially if you want a holiday without any children which is nice sometimes. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great little hotel"
We would highly recommend this little hotel. Only twenty rooms, The Colony is a luxurious respite from the hustle and bustle of Bali. So well placed, five minutes walk from Seminyak Square, five minutes walk from Ku De Ta and next door to Sea Circus. Couldn't have picked a better location! The rooms were gorgeous and whisper quiet. There were some […] hotel modifications going on when we stayed but we never heard a peep of construction noise the whole time. The staff were lovely and so accommodating. Pool area was great, no cocktails by the pool, which was actually good for the atmosphere of the hotel as the pool wasn't crowded with noisy drunkards. We took a quiet drink down there and no one seemed to mind. Especially recommend room 12, the views from the balcony are palatial. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I really liked the service. Each of the staff was very helpful and friendly. It feels like as if they know you personally. The place was beautiful and good place to just relax. Room and the whole place was clean. An improvement will be perhaps, have the TV to face the bed? other than that, it was a great experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel is a boutique style hotel & it's set in a very good area. This is the second time I've stayed here. The location, facilities, staff & overall hotel is fantastic. You will be happy with what you get.

Our third stay at the Colony. Fantastic hotel. Excellent staff. We stayed in the suite on the ground floor at the end of the pool. The room is large, very well appointed and the location is fantastic as you step out the door, down 3 steps and you are basically in the pool. Feels like a personal pool. The staff are very attentive without being intrusive. As we lounged by the pool the staff came by with glasses of cool water without any asking. Breakfast is cooked when you order it, so it's really nice and fresh and as you like it. Breakfast room is great, by the pool , open, with fans to keep you cool. The pool is great with lots of sun and at night the lighting is warm and romantic. Location is fantastic. Close by to great places to eat and shop. Great massage places within 3 minutes walking distance. The hotel really benefits from the staff and owners taking such a personal interest in the guests' experience. No kids which makes lying by the pool, breakfast fantastic. Not against kids ( as I have 4 of my own) but appreciate that the Colony is adult only.

What a brilliant place, with no screaming kids around. The pool is very inviting can spend hours there. The staff are warm and friendly, and very informative on the Seminyak scene. The lighting at night has a romantic feeling. Their restaurant will be open soon, something to look forward to on our next visit.
"A hidden gem!"
01/17/14 Evelyn S Singapore, Singapore
I've been wanting to check out this hotel after reading about it in Luxe Nomad. Finally, I had to chance to book an impromptu trip to Bali and quickly book this hotel. We were really lucky and manage to get a room despite booking it within 48hrs! We didn't regret making this choice at all! This 2.5 yrs old boutique hotel is perfect for couples. It's a small place but really nice, beautiful and peaceful. The best part is that it is near to all happening places! It is walking distance to many eateries too. The pool is very inviting, nice to just laze around and swim leisurely. The staff are really helpful and courteous. The breakfast is good and substantial, you can choose the local or western and it is cook on the spot. It's a perfect 3D2N escapade for us! We wish we can stay there a little longer. * They are currently building a restaurant outside the hotel. I believe it will be even better when it is ready.
"Excellent location, amenities and staff"
01/14/14 CharlieGibson Sydney, Australia
This hotel is an excellent choice for couples (not families). It has a nice boutique feel, with extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff who recommended several fantastic restaurants to us. The pool is clean, and extremely well kept - perfect for a late night swim. The hotel rooms were beautifully designed, and well kept - a world away from your typical chain type of hotel. The bathrooms were clean, large and had great showers. We highly recommend this hotel to couples who want an intimate, quiet, relaxed environment.
"Exactly What We Were Looking For In Seminyak"
01/09/14 Sarah S Honolulu, Hawaii
I struggled for a long time to find the right place to stay while in Seminyak. It was hard to find lodging that wasn't in a massive resort or wasn't too expensive or that wasn't in an inconvenient or noisy location. I went to Bali for my honeymoon and was looking for a small hotel with a pool that was within walking distance to the beach and the main shopping and eating streets. It also couldn't break the bank. The Colony checked all of these boxes. It is tucked away off the busy, taxi- and scooter-filled main street, but you feel like you are miles away from town. The rooms (and there are only 20 or so, I believe) are all situated around the large pool. The pool area was meticulously cleaned and cared for and it really is as gorgeous as the pictures on the website show. The pool area is also where you eat your complimentary breakfast. This was a lovely and much appreciated aspect of our stay, though I know it is pretty common at other hotels in the area. You are able to wander down to the pool in the morning and fill out a form requesting what you want for breakfast that day. Coffee, tea, fresh fruit, juices, banana pancakes, fried rice, and toast are just some of the choices. You are provided with plenty of food and you shouldn't leave hungry. There are a few other things to know about the Colony: -It is sooo quiet there. While this may have only been the case when we stayed there, we hardly heard a word from other guests. We would see them in passing, but generally it felt like we were the only guests there. Who doesn't want that during their honeymoon? -The staff are very friendly and considerate. They truly want your stay to be as wonderful as possible and always appear eager to help. We received cold towels and fresh fruit juice upon check-in, and this was extremely appreciated after a full 24 hours of traveling. While by the pool one day, the staff surprised us by bringing us melon popsicles to enjoy. It's little things like this that can really make a difference in your stay. -For getting around Seminyak locally, just walk out to the main street and hail a taxi. There are plenty of them. If you want to go further (e.g., to Tanah Lot or to the Bukit Peninsula) then you want to hire a driver for several hours. You can simply go to the front desk and they will arrange a driver for you. We utilized this option several times during our stay. -If you are in a Taxi and are going back to the Colony, say you need to be dropped off at Sea Circus. This is the restaurant (which is really good, by the way) that is next door to the hotel. The Colony is pretty small and we discovered that a lot of taxi drivers weren't sure where it was. They all knew where Sea Circus was though. -You are supplied with plenty of bottled water in your hotel room, and they restock your water several times a day. -While our room was not overly glamorous, it was all we needed for our stay. We used Seminyak as more of a base camp to explore other areas of Bali, and so we weren't lounging in our room all day. -They were in the process of building their restaurant when we were there, so that will be an added bonus for guests when it is complete. They also can arrange for spa services for you, but we did not take advantage of this option. -The only thing I wish they had was a fitness center. But alas, we cannot have everything! I absolutely loved The Colony and was so pleased with our experience there. I was also pleased with myself for finding this hidden gym in an area with so many options! You won't regret staying here.

I stayed here with some friends over the New Year and it was gorgeous. It's a small boutique hotel and the staff attend to your every need. All rooms are situated around the pool and you get to know everyone staying at the hotel. Our air conditioning was leaking and the staff had it fixed and left a bottle of wine for the trouble it caused us. I had a case of Bali belly and the staff gave me some medication to help. The hotel is conveniently located with great places within a short walk. You must try the roti cannai next door or Sea Circus also located next to the hotel. Reception assisted us with restaurant bookings, a trip to Ubud and also provided me with a complimentary transfer to the airport. Will definately be staying here again.
"Excellent value, great stay!"
Stayed only one night at the Colony but it was top notch! From the warm reception & beautiful setting to the lovely room and finally to the wonderful breakfast, this was a great experience. This is an excellent little boutique hotel, right in the heart of the action.
