The U paasha Seminyak Bali is a part of the U Hotels and Resorts and my first boutique hotel I’ve stayed at outside of Hawaii. It was difficult to make a decision on where to stay with so many hotel options in Seminyak. I made a good choice since Upaasha is located in the heart of town, surrounded by restaurants, shops, beauty salons and local vendors. If you want to have access to all of these things and be in the middle of the night life, this is the perfect place to stay!
They have two different Room options: the Suite and the Penthouse. I was unfortunately unable to book the Penthouse but was surprised when we entered the Suite that we confirmed. The Suite was bright, sleek, modern and very spacious. Complimentary bottled water, coffee and Tea were offered as room amenities along with free wifi. There was no bathtub which didn’t bother me since I didn’t have time to relax in the room anyways. The Coffee maker, hot water kettle, outlet adapters, ipod dock/clock and bath amenities all came in handy.
Located on the roof top is the Pool, Rooftop Bar & Restaurant and Fitness Center. Each one of these facilities had fabulous views! The gym is conveniently open 24 hours a day and offers yoga instruction. Each time I went to the pool right before sunset it was empty with about 5 -10 people. Most guests were sunbathing, getting spa treatments or just lounging on the pool deck, not a person in the pool!
Our room rate also included breakfast. The breakfast buffet was served at the Alcove right off the main lobby and had a wide variety of food and beverages. The servers would offer specialty coffees and a waffle and crepe station were also available. I went straight for the fresh fruit, fried noodles, fried rice, sushi, cereals and Iced Mocha Lattes!
The service at U paasha was great, it took some time to get some orders in at breakfast but I knew it was because they were jammed packed with guests. Everyone tried their best to assist you with your requests. I’d definitely stay here again and recommend it to others, the price you pay daily is well worth the amenities, accommodations and location is PRIME! You can find their promotions and room rates on their online reservations.
