Review: IZE Resort Seminyak

Seminyak, Bali’s hippest neighborhood is a by far my favourite area to stay when in Bali. The streets are filled with boutiques, fine dining, funky bars and the beach is only a five minute walk away! Five minutes drive and you find yourself in Kuta, the ‘party’ area filled with drunk tourists and cheap markets, so I tend to opt for the quieter (yet still hectic!) Seminyak!


The IZE is in the PERFECT hotel for location. You can maximIZE your stay, energIZE with a cocktail and tantalIZE your tastebuds at it’s award winning restaurant (see what I did there).

Located on Jalan Kayu Aya, the shopping strip of Seminyak, you will never get lost and always be able to grab a taxi, find a cool spot for dinner or shop to your hearts content. PLUS only two minute taxi away from my favourite beach dining; La Plancha!!!!


The best bit? The rooftop pool (and the mojitos!). For me, a holiday in Indonesia is about relaxing, swimming and dining. It is about finding yourself in a busy world. So looking out upon all the surrounding chaos as you sip their delicious flavoured mojitos (raspberry marshmallow please!) is bliss.

The pool is always clean, staff are always prepared to serve your every need and there is plenty of space for everyone to grab a spot to soak up the sun.


The architecture here is also amazing. being a newer establishment, IZE has gone for modern, abstract features that really pay off. The sky blue and grey hues are so peaceful and it really is stunning.


The Rooms: choose to have a standard deluxe or have your own pool terrace- both at ridiculously reasonable prices. Rooms are so fresh and open, more than enough room for two and cleaned to the nines. For what you are paying (between $145-$200 USD a night twin share!) it is a bargain, you have true luxury, proximity to the action and relaxation- what more could you want!
