If you asked me the best country I’ve been to, I would have said the Dominican Republic, but now, it’s Indonesia – Bali. With plenty to do and such tropical scenery, Bali is a must for your travel bucket list.

U Paasha Hotel, Seminyak Bali
My experience with U Paasha Hotel started as soon as I got off the plane. Airport transfer by the hotel was arranged prior to my landing resulting in a smooth and relaxful transfer directly to the hotel. U Paasha Hotel is located in Seminyak, just 14 minutes drive from the airport.
Upon arrival at the hotel, I was greeted by the receptionists of which sorted my room out very quickly. They were all very friendly and were happy to help if I had any questions. As I opened the door to my room I knew U Paasha Hotel was a great choice. All rooms are equipped with fast WIFI, tea and coffee-making facilities and very comfortable beds.
For my stay, I was on the 5th floor in room 519. With a spacious room a total size of 70 sqm, a walk-in shower and a king sized bed, I had everything I needed for a luxuriously comfortable and memorable stay.
Seminyak is Bali’s most stylish and top-notch beach resort area. It’s known for being the home to the most luxurious resorts on the island. With easy access to local attractions and plenty of dining and mini markets just a short walk outside the hotel, you can’t go wrong with this location.
Due to the hotel being situated in a stunning location, heading up to the rooftop swimming pool and bar will give you an incredible 360 view of the surroundings.
Suite with a view:
For my visit to Bali, I stayed in the Suite with a view at the hotel. This suite accommodates up to two people with a king size bed. After stepping into the room, I noticed it was very spacious and offered a lot. Walk-in shower, double sink, sofa, flatscreen TV, music docking station, balcony along with the general tea and coffee-making facilities and a mini-fridge.
Whilst there wasn’t a bath-tub, a very spacious walk-in shower definitely topped that. The only downside I encountered was the safe not being big enough to store a Mac.
Other than that, I’m very happy to report, the hotel came equipped with everything needed for a luxurious stay in Bali.
Dining at U Paasha Hotel
Whilst I did miss out on dinner at U Paasha Hotel, I did make the most of my breakfast. Every morning you’ll have the option to choose from a variety of mouth-watering foods from the breakfast buffet. With plenty on offer, you’ll definitely find something that will be very tasty. All rooms include free breakfast and is available from 6:30 am – 11 am.
