The swankiest area on Bali's west coast, Seminyak is dotted with luxury villas, upscale bars and restaurants. Although it may not boast the big international superstars of Nusa Dua, a lot of the hotels here offer a bit more character and a good deal more privacy.
Space at Bali was originally intended to be a party pad for its owners, before it was converted into a six-villa enclave. The units are identical and interconnected, allowing one the possibility of renting them all, opening the doors and racing from one end of the resort to the other.
Each has a terrace/living area, a circular kitchen with Bali decor, a second-floor "chill space", two bedrooms with king-sized beds and open-air bathrooms at the rear which let you do your business in the midst of a small, sweet-smelling tropical garden.
Last but not least is a large private pool, ringed by loungers, plus a gazebo which proved very effective at lulling me to sleep - sufficient to occupy a big chunk of one's day, surely.
