This trendy hotel, across the street from thatched-roof beach bars and restaurants lining bustling Double Six Beach, provides a lively, jet-setting atmosphere. With chic dining, multiple bars, a private beach area and huge outdoor pool, you can easily kick back and relax into holiday mode.
About the Hotel
Located in Seminyak, Double-Six is within easy walking distance of scores of restaurants and bars. This luxury hotel is one mile from ‘Ku De Ta’, one of Bali’s most popular beach clubs, two miles from Seminyak Square shopping centre and six miles from Ngurah Rai International Airport. The hotel boasts a sleek lobby with gold accents, gleaming marble floors and pillars resembling an Egyptian temple. The elegant themed restaurants range from 1920’s glamour to a modern Italian eatery with a glass-enclosed charcuterie. Local aspects can also be found, including a traditional Balinese stone temple outside the lobby where guests can watch daily presentations of offerings.
About the Rooms
The 146 suites and penthouses have a luxurious feel with mood lighting, plush lounge areas and bathrooms featuring two basins, iridescent tiles, and rectangular soaking tubs under wall-mounted televisions. Minibars offer a good selection of drinks, plus a fridge full of mixers, while hot drinks come from Segafredo Zanetti espresso machines and TWG Teas. All the suites have balconies with some overlooking the pool and beach.
The five restaurants and bars are among the hotel’s highlights. The Plantation Grill Seminyak is opulent and 1920s-themed, featuring a knowledgeable sommelier and a wide selection of wood-grilled steaks and seafood. The casual Seminyak Italian Food offers beach views and serves à la carte breakfast such as eggs Benedict, huevos rancheros and nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice). Three bars include the poolside Lagoon Bar, Rooftop Sunset Bar (which doubles as a concert and event venue) and Sling Bar, which is a fun, speakeasy-style late night destination with classic cocktails.
About Facilities and Recreation
The beachfront location is the star of the show, but the 120-metre outdoor pool makes a great understudy. The pool deck is packed from breakfast to dusk, when the crowd makes its way to the rooftop bar to watch the sunset over the waves below. The futuristic-feeling spa offers holistic treatments and yoga classes, as well as a gym and a beauty salon. A welcome detail is the Owner’s Lounge, which offers cosy couches, shower facilities and free drinks, and is open to guests who are either arriving early or leaving late.
