Travel: Ize Seminyak

IZE, IZE BABY. Smack-dab in the heart of shopping haven, IZE Seminyak (Jl. Kayu Aya/ Laksmana no. 68, Bali; +62 361 8466 999; is unfolding a new chapter of Balinese hospitality.

The hip, urban architecture houses a plethora of modern facilities, all delivered with a genuine island touch. From the outside, the Meja Restaurant oozes rustic Scandinavian exteriors, while a peek inside reveals a swanky baby-blue rooftop sheltering nifty rooms.

Two idyllic pools are available, and for a walloping night cap the Rooftop Lounge & Bar has an arsenal of whiskey-based cocktails. Otherwise, Petitenget beach is within walking distance.
