Located right in the heart of Seminyak, Bali, U Paasha Seminyak Hotel is a mid-range contemporary style resort with modern architecture, high ceilings and large open spaces. The best restaurants and shops are just a walking distance and Seminyak Beach is just about 1km away (or 10 minutes bicycle ride). If you’re expecting the traditional Balinese style here, you will experience it in a form of warm hospitality, helpful and friendly staff. Read more of my reviews below.
On the day we arrived, around 11am in the morning, we get to check-in to our rooms immediately. What I really like about U Paasha is that if the rooms are ready, we can straight away check-in, no need to wait for 2pm or 3pm check-in time like other hotels. This is their special ‘stay for 24 hours‘ policy which enables you to check in and stay regardless the time you arrived, so no waiting.
Another uniqueness of U Paasha is that they offer personalized services catered for guests known as the U Choose programme. At the front desk, other than receiving coupons to redeem your free welcome drinks at the mini bar, you also get to choose your pillow type, tea selections, music for your in-room Ipod and the scent of soap to your liking. The 3 choices of pillows are : Ultra Soft Micro Fibre Pillow, Medium Firm Polyester Pillow or a Firm Ball Fibre Pillow. Your choice of soap can either be jasmine, bamboo, lemongrass or orchid. These selections can be done when you book online, via email prior to your visit or at the front desk upon arrival.
There are 2 types of accommodation here, a suite or a penthouse. I was here with another 2 friends, we opted for the suite and added an extra bed. Our suite is situated at the end of a spacious hallway decorated with large colorful abstract paintings on the wall. The room is really spacious. White stucco walls, large twin beds, wardrobe, wifi connection, flat screen TV, a DVD player (with some DVD selections for you to choose) and a mini bar with tea and coffee making facilities stocked with soft drinks and a selection of beer.
The ensuite bathroom area is quite large. Super love the hexagonal tiles and the double sink. The only downside for me is the separate toilet & shower. The two is separated by a frosted glass in between. I’m just not sold on the idea where you have to get out of the shower, wrap around your towel and go next door to use the joint. The shower area is quite spacious, but if there is a bathtub instead, it would really make my day 🙂 .
Another thing I like about U Paasha is the ‘breakfast wherever, whenever‘ policy. No more hurrying and queuing up at the buffet line early in the morning in your pyjamas. They still serve the morning breakfast buffet as usual, but you can also opt to have your breakfast sent to your room, or on the cabana beds by the roof top pool. Flexibility is a bonus here. The breakfast menu however is very basic, a bit more variety wouldn’t hurt.
U Paasha Seminyak is a deluxe hotel like no other – the staffs are very friendly and helpful, the room is large,clean and the personalization of amenities in the room is just the touch of luxury that we all could get used to!
