As you may know, I recently got back from a summer trip to Indonesia. While exploring Bali, I had the chance to stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort. It was comfortable, inviting, and relaxing! It was also one of my favorite places that I stayed out on my trip. Keep on reading to learn more about what it was like to stay at this great hotel.
This hotel is perfect for solo travelers, couples, and families. You can tell they really try to cater to a variety of needs and interests so that all their guests are happy. During my stay, I noticed they had weekly entertainment shows, yoga and swim classes, childcare services, a quality fitness center, and meeting spaces available to guests. The Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort also has excellent customer service. Anytime I passed by a staff member, they greeted me warmly and made sure my needs were met.
I was impressed with the room size at this hotel. Sometimes, Asian hotels specifically are a lot smaller than they are in other countries. While here, I stayed in a deluxe pool view room. It featured a king size bed, a comfortable chair for reading or relaxing, a small table and chairs, an outdoor patio overlooking the pool area, and a spacious bathroom.
I really loved the attached patio area. It was such a treat to sit out and enjoy looking at the pool. The pool itself is huge. It also features a swim up pool bar, which is fun! Be sure to take advantage of the happy hour deals, which offer buy one get one drinks! Two drinks for the price of one? Count me in! 🙂
I took advantage of the pool area several times. It was fun to swim, have a drink, and sit out and read in the afternoon. It was also relaxing to get an evening swim in, when there were are a lot less guests around. There’s a lot of seating available around the pool and there’s also an attached pool bar area with seats and tables. If drinking isn’t your thing, they have many yummy mocktails, smoothies, and fresh juices.
The breakfast buffet was fabulous. This takes place every morning in the hotel’s own Seminyak Kitchen restaurant. There was a huge variety of foods from all over the world. There were also many fresh fruits and juices available. There’s also cereal, waffles, and pancakes, which would be perfect for young kids. (There’s ice cream and waffle cones too — shh! 😉 )
Another thing I really enjoyed about staying at the Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort is that they have a taco truck stationed right outside the lobby! It’s called What the Truck and it features several taco options each day. You can also enjoy coffee, beer, and alcoholic cider. They even had a breakfast taco! I loooove tacos, so this was something I enjoyed daily.
I had a really great time here. It was a lot of fun relaxing, eating delicious food, and enjoying the sunshine in and around the pool area. If you like great service, spending time at the pool, relaxing, — oh and eating tacos, this is the place to stay while in the Seminyak part of Bali. If I visit Bali again, I plan to go back!
