Some six years since our last visit to the beautiful island of Bali – we headed back in September 2022 for our first post-pandemic overseas trip and were welcomed by the Blu-Zea by Double Six Resort in Seminyak.
Seminyak is a great location if you are after some hustle and bustle. A block away from the beach, this resort has restaurants, bars, market stores and massage spas all on your doorstep. When you are done with all the action – the resort offers an oasis to relax and chill.
The resort pool has the mandatory swim up bar, coupled with daily happy hour, a basketball ring for some in-pool activity and plenty of in-pool seating to chill.
We stayed in a Junior Suite – room number 09 – which was a great corner location at the resort that comes with a private deck, an outdoor lounge area and direct access to the pool. The room was spacious with a second toilet separate to the bathroom complete with bath and rain shower. The rooms were clean and well maintained and come with a daily towel animal left on the bed – it made me feel like I was on a cruise ship!
We really appreciated all the free bottled water left in the room every day – and there was an added bonus of a water refill station should you need more. Bottled water is essential in Bali you need to use it for both drinking and brushing your teeth!
The breakfast was served in an open-air restaurant overlooking the pool beach area and offered a large buffet selection of both Western and Asian cuisine. The egg station was well received and did made-to-order eggs from scrambled, omelettes, boiled, poached or fried.
We traveled as a couple and found it to be a great option for adults. There were not a lot of kids staying here that we noticed – plenty of adults that were repeat visitors and raved about the resort.
There is a kids club, a theatre room and free pool tables in the lobby for some entertainment. And for those that value their exercise the gym was a good set up offering a variety of machines and weight stations.
We also tried out the onsite spa with one of their signature packages. The whole experience is relaxing, and it felt very indulgent. The staff were fantastic and the facility very calming and well maintained.
The reception offered a money change service that we found useful as the rates were comparable and it was a safe place to change our Australian dollars as we needed it.
The Blu-Zea by Double Six is a great option for a trip to Bali. It was fantastic to be back in Bali and be able to support the local tourism that has been doing it so tough over the last two years.
