Bali accomodation, Boutique hotel

The ultimate charming, quiet boutique hotel !!

THE COLONY

The ‘feel’ of the hotel is exclusive, classy and quiet without the price tag being too high. If you don’t mind not being on the beach (the beach is about 5mins away), the Colony could be the hotel for you.

It’s a charming and personable all-white boutique hotel with just 20 rooms. I recommend it for solo travellers, couples, or a girlie group.

The Colony is located directly across the street from Samaya and just up from The Legian, so an excellent position on Jalan Oberoi. It’s only a few minutes walk to some of the best restaurants, beach clubs and bars (La Lucciola, KuDeTa, Potato Head) and the main strip of shops.

The hotel is set back from the street so there is no noise whatsoever making it a peaceful haven in what can be a rather noisy road in Seminyak. The hotel has built an extension on the front of the hotel which is going to be their main restaurant but is not yet open. The rooms are built around a central courtyard that houses a small swimming pool and the breakfast area as well as a few sun loungers and tables.

The breakfast is served daily on the terrace poolside. Not a huge selection but adequate and well-prepared. The staff are are polite and efficient and do their job very well.

The rooms are absolutely spotless, as is the whole hotel.

Tres chic Pearl: a hidden gem!

PEARL Hotel, Legian

Situated down a short driveway off busy Jalan Double Six, this charming boutique hotel is a delightful oasis of calm. There are only approximately 16 rooms wrapping around a modest azure pool in an intimate, tropical setting. Shaded day beds poolside, piled with cushions, are a restful place to relax with a cocktail or two.

The Pearl hotel has a NO child policy and there is NO swim up bar. This ensures a quiet and peaceful sanctuary.

The hotel is conveniently located with the beach a pleasurable 5 minute stroll away in one direction and the wallet emptying shopping strip of Jalan Legian on the other.

I only stayed here one night as a last minute booking, but would happily return. The understated rooms are spacious and clean, though simply decorated. The bathrooms are generous, with some opening partially to the outdoors. Mozzies therefore can be an issue, so come prepared!

The gardens are pleasantly lush and typically Balinese.

A simple, uncomplicated breakfast is included in the reasonable room cost. Breakfast can be delivered to your balcony, though there is no daily room service. Wifi is strong.

Conveniently, the much coveted and well renowned French “Pearl Restaurant” is within the hotel grounds. An enchanting garden setting filled with fairy lights compliments the superb food with its outstanding presentation.

I would recommend this hotel as a quiet, modest getaway. It is an ideal lady’s solo accommodation with secure, gated grounds and staff that are attentive and welcome you like family.

A little gem of a hotel!

HINT: Book an upstairs room if possible, as there is some noise on the ground floor from movement overhead.
