Your own boutique Balinese bolthole
Encased in tropical gardens and with an air of seclusion, it’s hard to believe that The Elysian sits in the heart of fashionable Seminyak, within easy walking distance of the resort’s boutiques, bars and restaurants and a five-minute walk from the beach. This is an architecturally impressive hotel; designed to reflect the style of modern Bali while respecting the island’s rich history and tradition. The staff here play a big part in the welcoming atmosphere – nothing is too much trouble.
Stroll through the leafy pathways and you’ll reach the centre of this boutique ‘village of villas’ with a reception pavilion, the Elysian Spa and waterfall-edged 25-metre main pool flanked by shaded cabanas. Breakfast is taken at the open-air Rush Bamboo Restaurant & Bar with its open kitchen and poolside tables, and regular themed evenings include seafood dinners, Indonesian Ristaffel (‘rice table’) and a recommended barbecue night. Don’t miss afternoon tea, which is hosted daily by the pool.
The villas are built of stone and wood, each concealed in its own high walled garden. You’ll have your own private pool and sun deck surrounded by foliage, and a generous open-plan living/dining and entertainment area. Huge folding doors enable you to let the outside in – if you want to – and mod cons include a pre-loaded iPod Nano and Apple TV with box office movies, plus the use of an iPad or laptop on request.
