Travel review: The Colony Hotel

SEMINYAK COLONIAL STYLE. An elegant colonial-inspired boutique hotel located in the heart of Seminyak, The Colony Hotel Jl. Laksmana 22, Seminyak, Bali 80361 Indonesia, +62 361 736 160; offers a sense of secluded luxury on the Island of the Gods.

It has 20 well-appointed rooms built around a central 16-meter swimming pool. Each room features a contemporary en-suite and 21st Century tech-essentials such as high speed Wi-Fi and satellite television. The hotel prides itself on its personalised service and they say guests can expect staff to know their name when they offer up their local expertise and advice. The Colony also provides exclusive access to the award-winning massage by Jari Menari, which offers unique, yoga inspired sessions. Perhaps best of all, The Colony has a policy of no children under 16 years of age, making it a great choice for more sophisticated merrymakers.
