Seminyak is Bali’s most luxurious area, a home to varied five-star and most expensive hotels and resorts in the island, likewise hosting a number of fine dining restaurants and expensive boutiques. 

It’s not every day that we get to experience a 5-star accommodation on a prime location.  And I am glad we were booked at the newest hotel in Seminyak, the 5-star Trans Resort Bali for our remaining days in Bali, Indonesia.  Pure bliss and opulence.

We checked-in late at the Trans Resort Bali due to some activities scheduled beforehand while at Ubud.  Around six in the evening to be specific.

The spacious and elegant lobby and reception area along with the friendly staff and management welcomed us.  We were given a glass of fruit juice and a cold towel to refresh.  The paintings and chandeliers of the reception area was grand.  I had no expectations then as the only thing I wanted was to get a quick rest and survey the area for dinner.

In a matter of minutes, we were ushered to our respective rooms.  And I was so surprised of the lavish accommodations I will be having.  It was a connecting room for the group.

The Premier Club Room was my transient abode in Seminyak while the connecting room for my travel buddies is a Celebrity Suite.  I was really amazed of how grand and comforting the accommodation is.  The interior design and room amenities is truly fit for a lavish lifestyle.  With two queen-sized beds and a private jacuzzi at the balcony having a direct access to the panoramic and wide outdoor swimming pool of the hotel, you would really wish you had your family and a number of friends present to party.

The private bathroom provides free luxurious toiletries and a bath tub with separate toilet and shower.  It is likewise spacious that guests can move freely and comfortably.

The Celebrity Suite features an open-style bathroom, spacious walk-in closet and interconnecting doors perfect for a family.  We were given the special privilege of having to dine in an outdoor dining area or to experience buffet at the Restaurant.  And what can even be more luxurious is the fact that there is a butler available all throughout the day to serve and cater to our needs.

Since it was night time when we checked-in, I became excited of what scenery awaits the day after.  Contemporary Balinese architecture and interior design were further incorporated on the room.

The morning after unveiled the panoramic and vast property of the luxurious hotel.  The white sandy beach pool overlooking a towering waterfall and tropical garden comprises the landscape.  It serves as the centerpiece of the Trans Bali Resort.

The Restaurant

The fresh tropical ambiance of the beach pool was the perfect treat to start the day.  We woke up late due to the comforts of our bed and hurried to the Restaurant for a breakfast buffet.  Authentic Indonesian, Chinese and western spread were the offer of the day.

Seminyak, being known for party rendezvous, Trans Resort Bali is sensitive to the visitors’ plight, providing an extended breakfast time of up to 11 in the morning.  It can pass as an early lunch as well for those not used to having breakfast.  If only we were not scheduled for other activities, I would have had an extended sleep and have my breakfast at eleven in the morning.  This is one thing I would like to experience again at the resort should I go back.

Even the mere fact of just sitting in one corner of the restaurant, it truly was rejuvenating with a landscape pleasing to the eyes.

We spent our last dinner in Bali as well at the Restaurant and shared the table with their chefs and staff.  With a months old of operation, we can see the enthusiasm of the hotel’s personnel to deliver quality and efficient service to its clientele.  The hotel no doubt will give an outstanding mark to Seminyak area.

Every dish served is truly delectable.  The Restaurant is one of the main facilities that highlights our stay in Seminyak.


After our mandatory tour of the temples of Bali, we availed of our complimentary treats at the wellbeing center of the resort.  With the array of luscious indulgence such as hot stone massage, sea salt scrub and the luxurious caviar and pearl facial treatment, the resort gives their customers a peek of Balinese heritage.

As for me, another traditional Balinese massage shall be experienced.  The well-orchestrated treatment of their skilled Balinese therapist made me sleep for minutes.  The soothing strokes and acupressure applied was perfect and truly relaxing.

I am never accustomed to massage treatments, but while in Bali, it has become a repeated itinerary that every hotel takes pride of such service.  And I must say, I am fortunate to have experienced an authentic Balinese massage at Trans Resort.   


Trans Resort Bali offers an unimaginable line-up of services that defines a lavish lifestyle.  Shuttle services is free and room service is definitely outstanding.  The hotel offers a 24-hour front desk concierge service, currency exchange, tour desk, ticket service, baggage storage, babysitting/child service, laundry, dry cleaning, ironing service, shoeshine, daily housekeeping, meeting/banquet facilities, business center, fax/photocopying and souvenir/gift shop.

Over-all stay at the Trans Resort Bali was truly lavish.  It was the perfect way to end our stay in Bali as we moved to another island of Indonesia - Yogyakarta.
