U Paasha Seminyak Bali Reviews
Hip and stylish boutique style hotel Jul 30, 2013
I booked a couple of nights at U Paasha in Seminyak towards the end of our Bali trip and we decided to stay here to check out the Kuta and Seminyak area , the hotel seemed quite new and the price was not bad. I booked the hotel on the hotel homepage and in the booking process you also get to choose which pillows you want, what kind of tea you want and what kind of soap you want.
When we arrived at the hotel the front entrance was pretty cool – the front was pretty much open towards Jalan Laksmana. The check in process was a bit on the slow side but we were assigned room 124 on the ground floor. The hotel seems to be long and narrow and the corridor leading down to our room was not very cozy with a sort of concrete floor and naked walls. When we got to our room there seemed to be some construction noise coming from the outside of the hotel but luckily we did not hear any of the noise
inside our room.
The room was fairly big with about 50 square meters – the entrance hall was long and narrow and could not be used for anything. The floor was the same concrete floor as in the hall and the walls were a combination of light walls and some large rock tiles behind the bed (see the photo). The bed was huge and with lots of pillows – and after staying at various hotels with firm pillows I was happy to find the duck down pillow that I has ordered when booking the room.
Apart from the bed there was also a small sofa and table and a sort of chair. There was also a pretty naked desk with a large TV and a stool to sit in front of the desk. By the bed there was a Philips radio that was also a iPhone docking station – ideal for charging the phone and for listing to your music. The wardrobe just contained a small safe that worked just fine.
The bathroom was pretty funky with a bee hive tiles theme which was repeated in the mirrors in front of the two sinks. There were some amenities like shampoo and bath gel that was OK. The toilet was in a separate cubical with a frosted glass door so it gives a bit of privacy. The shower area was with a clear glass door and it was huge.
Free wifi was provided and it worked pretty well and the username and password were provided when we checked in. Check out time is the same time as check in time – this was very convenient for us as we only checked in at 4 PM.
The aircon in the room was pretty noisy and there was no remote control to adjust the fan speed and temperature. In order to adjust the aircon I had to fiddle around with the control panel by the door and it was not very practical.
Breakfast was served by the lobby and it was not lavish but provided the basics. There was cereal, bread, some fruit, coffee etc. There was also an egg station where you could get eggs made the way you want and it was possible to add bacon, beans etc. There was also a waffle station – I have not seen that in many hotels. The hotel pool is located on the hotel roof and was pretty big – but the view is not great as there are only 4 floors.
The location of the hotel is pretty good – on the road Jalan Laksmana you can find a mix of shopping, restaurants and art stores. It is only about 1 km to the Oberoi resort and the Seminyak beach.
The U Paasha hotel in Seminyak was a nice boutique style hotel that wants to be hip and stylish. The rooms were a bit naked but the bed was comfortable, the location is pretty good and breakfast was not bad. So all in all I would not mind staying there again if I’m going to stay in the Seminyak area.
