Reviewed 4 August 2017

We stayed at the Elysian for the first part of our honeymoon in Bali. The room was stunning with an amazing pool and gorgeous bathroom. The hotel had beautifully decorated our room as a surprise for us and continued to bring us special treats throughout our stay. The attentive staff were the most helpful and genuinely considerate of our entire stay in Bali. The assistance from the concierge throughout our stay was brilliant, he arranged lots of great meals for us and directed us to the best places to go. Whilst Seminyak was fun, the Elysian made it possible to enjoy from a honeymoon perspective, with it's luxury pool, incredible spa - with particularly great massages received on both visits and even an all you can eat BBQ priced extremely reasonably and tastefully done. The hotel was populated by late twenties-early forties couples , was romantic and trendy. We will definitely be returning to this excellent venue, thank you for kick starting a lovely honeymoon in Bali.

We have spent 7 days of our honeymoon here and it was perfect. The villas are beautiful, the villa pool is great. You are a 10 min walk to the beach, 10 minutes to the centre. All the food you get in the hotel is exceptional, never had a bad breakfast or lunch here. And the staff here are just amazing, always helpful, always courteous, nothing is too much hassle for them. They make this place more perfect. Recommend anyone to stay here, i was sad to leave!

The Elysian was one of the two places we have visited during our honeymoon (the other being Viceroy). The villa was very spacious, comfortable and clean as was the pool (although the deck area was a little on a small side). A bit of warning, our villa was quite shady for the most part of the day, so not too great if you're a sun worshipper. The staff was very friendly and made us feel very welcome and the made-to-order breakfast was absolutely delicious (I definitely recommend the French toast). The only big fault were the mosquitos, despite the fogging and using the hotel provided devices we got badly bitten in our sleep :(

Dear Paula M,

Thank you very much for your generous compliments and for taking the time to share your holiday experience.
We are much honored to have received such a positive review and it has been a pleasure to have you as our guest.
regarding your comment about the mosquito, We realize Bali is tropical island and that's why, we have regular fogging twice a week and we spray all the villa twice a day to minimize the mosquito in the area and inside the villa.however, we will share your feedback to our housekeeping department so we can work harder about this issue.
Please accept our apologies and we hope that we will have the pleasure to welcome you back to The Elysian, Bali on your next holiday.

Warmest Regards
The Elysian team

The staff at the elysian offered first class service. We were greeted by personal service and genuine smiles every day. In particular Ardi on the front desk really made our stay special by organising some great trips including a private tour of Bali and a trek up mount Batur which was a fantastic experience. He went above and beyond to offer personal service and make us feel special.

Gede was our guide for the private tour of Bali. He was fantastic- allowed us to take in Bali at our own speed, very courteous and polite offering just the right amount of information.

Argus on the front desk also arranged a lovely dinner at Jimbaren bay on our last night and nothing was too much to ask.

The restaurant staff always greeted us and asked us what we had been up to offering advice and tips on where to visit etc. Even the cleaning staff were great- making sure we were comfortable and never over intrusive.

All the staff at the elysian were truly fantastic- we truly could not have asked for a better place to stay for our first visit to Bali.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights this July as part of our honeymoon in Bali. In a nutshell I would recommend this hotel for people who want to stay in Seminyak away from the busy main streets and beach, but within walking distance. The service here is very good and the grounds well maintained. I would not recommend this hotel for people with walking difficulties/disabilities.

Location

The Elysian is located in the heart of Seminyak, it is not directly situated on the beach. This means that it is quieter than hotels on the beach, but I would not recommend for people with walking difficulties as it takes around 10-15 mins to walk to the beach down a busy side street with uneven pavement. This was not an issue for us and we benefitted from the quiet away from busy Seminyak beach, and enjoyed walking there. The staff do offer complementary bicycles and also have a car, although the car would not be able to get directly to the beach.

Environment

The Elysian is like a little oasis from the streets of Seminyak, they have a beautiful array of flora and fauna, making it feel as though you are a world away from the streets outside. The hotel is quite small, with one communal area housing the lobby, restaurant and pool. The communal pool area gets the sun all day and there is waited drinks and meals service, so you do not have to leave your cabana/lounger. The communal facilities are very clean.

Food

The food menu offers a mix of casual dining Asian and western foods. The Elysian pizza is particularly good - very thin base. We did have an issue with one meal on our first night, but generally the food was very good. Our favourite drink was the lemongrass and ginger mocktail, which was very refreshing. The breakfast was slightly disappointing.

Room

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment (room 26).

The pool area was private and well maintained, beautiful planting. The pool is checked daily by staff for chlorine and PH levels, which they record on a board for you to see. The sun lounger was a bit tired, some staining and a cigarette burn to the cushioning. The outside area of room 26 does not get much sun, so if you are wanting to sunbathe then the communal area pool is better, this was not an issue for me as I don't really sunbathe.

Inside the room was quite modern, although on closer inspection a bit tired again. The seating in the lounge was a bit uncomfortable and the bed mattress also. Despite this the apartment has all the facilities you would need to have a comfortable stay, including a kitchenette area and some added touches like the Apple TV with movies. The housekeeping staff made elaborate and beautiful towel decorations, our favourite was the dog! Unfortunately room 26 is next to the restaurant which meant that even inside the room you can here the restaurant phone ringing and the music from the restaurant, although I will say that they do not play the music too loudly - which is good. We did highlight this during our stay and the staff quickly offered us a different room but as we were only staying a few nights it was not a major problem.

Mineral water in the room is complimentary and room service is also free of charge, there is a daily housekeeping check in the morning and an evening turndown service.

Service

The service at the Elysian was very good, there are some nice touches like the complementary room service and waiter service by the pool. The staff are welcoming and friendly, keen for you to enjoy your stay.

We had a couple of issues on our first night with our linen and food but the staff were responsive and reactive to offer a resolution. After these initial hiccups the staff went above and beyond to try to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

One improvement I would recommend is regarding the room service, when you call the front desk (for anything) you will be put on hold to be transferred to either the kitchen, housekeeping, IT (what ever department you need) most hotels usually take your request when you ring the front desk and then make arrangements on your behalf - for example when ordering a meal you would call the front desk and they would take your order to inform the kitchen on your behalf. At the Elysian you are put on hold and then transferred directly to the kitchen, which can be a bit confusing at times. This is not a problem as such, but would take their service to a higher standard.

Overall the service provided is very good, the staff cannot do enough for you and will endeavour to meet your every need. They remember guests by name and will provide special touches (singing happy birthday to me on my birthday, cakes for birthday/honeymoon, flower bath).
