Being widely known as Bali’s lifestyle playground, wandering around Seminyak brings much joy and pleasure as we get the chance to hop from one boutique to another; finding the latest fashion styles, sampling the best tastes along the Kayu Aya’s eat street, now extended to Petitenget Street, lined with chic and casual restaurants and bars, not to mention some of the best hotels in Seminyak. It’s simply enjoying the best part that life has to offer. In a nutshell, Seminyak is a place which is keeping us alive and agile.
Not far from the brimming latest hang out spots, the long stretch of beaches, sitting adjacently from Padma Beach, Double Six Beach to Petitenget Beach are the favourite places to go in the afternoon to witness the everlasting beauty of Bali sunset. With the firm sand on the beach and shallow shoreline, visitors are able to get as close as possible to the setting sun, providing a warm orange backdrop for a keepsake travel snap memento. By the same token, sitting on your comfy seating at the beach club, watching the golden hour moment from a distance while sipping tropical cocktail is also a blissful experience.
One Playful Oasis
With all those reachable experiences, it is easy to make a decision that Seminyak must be the first stop on your trip to Bali. Yet, choosing where to stay in Seminyak is a tough one. With many options of four and five-star hotels & resorts and villas, travellers, especially those on limited budget, might have a headache. If this is the case, you can consider to check the availability room at Tijili Seminyak Hotel. Providing colourful and uplifting mood in every corner of its space, this boutique hotel gives its guest value-for-money stay without compromising the standard of Seminyak’s elegance.
Recently awarded as one of Top 25 Bargain Hotels in Indonesia on the 2018 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice, Tijili Seminyak is art-oriented, trendy and chic. Giving a tribute to the creative lifestyle, the design is carefully planned and executed, conveying the combination of playful and Bali’s traditional elements. This unique blend is the first intriguing impression at the moment you are standing in front of its façade.
Tucked away in a small street of Jalan Drupadi, the boutique hotel provides an oasis of serenity, a pause moment that you will need after enjoying the high pulses of Seminyak’s nightlife. It is a short distance from Seminyak’s party stages, while on the other hand, the calming effect of Seminyak beach breeze is just within walking distance.
The Eye Design
The good impression doesn’t stop at the entrance. Upon entering the lobby area, its art-oriented interior and decor chase the boring state of mundane life away. Filled with original design elements and artwork, here is a pleasure to experience, with every corner opening up to new plays of texture, colour, and light. Details are carefully considered and implemented, transforming the check-in area into an Insta-ready space. Notice how the atmosphere of the space change your mood into a more relax and playful state.
Everything in this ground floor area radiates a vibrant atmosphere, turning your lip tips from down to up. Applying an open design concept, this floor is the hotel’s hub. Adjacent to the lobby is Kakatua Tropic Lounge, an inviting space that makes the bedroom functions as it should be: for rest only. The choices of the furniture, colours and shapes provide just the right things as a designated homey space for mingling, having a drink and hanging out with friends. Simply choose your seating preference: at the comfy sofas, outside by the street or laying on a beanbag by the pool.
In addition to serving up fabulous and fresh tropical-inspired food all day long at Kakatua Restaurant and refreshing cocktails from the bar, here you will find more things to ignite the mind of creative as well as the curiosity to learn new things. Prepare your own Balinese lunch on Wednesdays by joining the Cooking Class under the guidance of skilful hands from the restaurant. We also recommend the Friday’s Cocktail Class where you will learn the secret tricks of creating four excellent cocktails. Women especially will find their calmness and Me Time in the offering making (Canang Sari Lesson) every Monday. Altogether, those are interesting activities to do at the hotel.
Time to Sleep Well
Going up from the ground floor, the hub of any activities and encounters, more soothing colours of details in room direction signs, artworks on the wall, and finally the unique design of the room number, leads to the space of personal time. Depending on your preference, you may choose a room overlooking the city life scene or the pool.
Whatever the choice, the rooms and suites at Tijili Seminyak offer an intimate and refined comfort. The interior is playful although not as vibrant as the one you find on the ground floor. It is exquisitely designed with original décor and furnishings, complete with hand crafted tiled floors, sourced from artisans in Java. Sculptural lamps and stone slab tables, made from uniquely patterned fossilized wood that has petrified after millions of years, lend a warm, tropical designer ambience. Splashes of colour in hip ethnic patterns liven up the colour scheme.

While all room types share similar standard amenities such as TV, Wi-Fi connection, individually controlled Air Conditioning, in-room safe deposit box, and hairdryer, and 24-hour room service, each type has also added benefit to ensure more comfort.

As many of us believe it has something to do with our perception in seeing life, then it then comes to a realization that happiness in travelling trip should start from the hotel room.
