The Rooms

After a day exploring Seminyak’s vibrant streets, there’s no better feeling than returning to the crisp, white linen and cool marble of your private room, suite or villa. The oversized rooms and suites promise space and serenity, with outdoor jacuzzis and daybeds as standard. If you’d like to dial the luxury up a notch, opt for one of just 16 extravagant villas and private pools, hot tubs and blissful Balinese gardens will be yours to enjoy. 

The Location

The Trans Resort Bali takes the cake for best Seminyak location. It’s an easy 20-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport, so your escape can start sooner rather than later. The resort boasts an enviable position in the heart of town, surrounded by designer boutiques, remarkable restaurants and beachside bars (including the popular KU DE TA and Motel Mexicola), and is just a short walk from the famous Eat Street and Seminyak Square. But it’s not all go go go – despite being in the centre of the action, The Trans exudes tranquillity, thanks to its extensive grounds, luxurious facilities and a private stretch of sand onsite.  

The Food

There’s little danger of going hungry when you stay at The Trans Resort Bali, not with two lounges, a restaurant and an unbeatable rooftop bar onsite. Considered Seminyak’s best-kept secret by those in the know, the 18th Rooftop Bar is a popular spot to bathe in the sunset rays while sipping a cocktail. We recommend the signature Marioska, a refreshing concoction whose ingredients are the closely guarded secret of Resort Manager, Mr Marius. The Restaurant is prepared to satisfy your every craving, from morning to night. Bountiful buffet breakfasts, brimming with western and local Indonesian favourites, will fuel each day’s explorations, while an authentic ‘go local’ lunch served in bamboo baskets will offer up a taste of real Indonesian cuisine. When the craving for seafood mixed grill or nasi goreng strikes, an à la carte dinner is sure to cap off a memorable day. 

The Pool

This is not your average resort swimming pool. At The Trans Resort Bali, it’s easy to forget you’re in a resort and believe you’ve landed on a pristine, private tropical island, thanks to the epic manmade beach that occupies the centre of the property. While away a whole day with splashy fun in the main pool or practise your stroke in the lap pool, or keep your little ones entertained while they wade in the kids’ pool. If you’re missing Australia’s beaches during your escape, you’ll be pleased to know that the beach-themed outdoor experience is made possible with pure white sand imported from Australia.

The Experiences

Travellers of all ages and stripes will find their bliss at The Trans Resort Bali. If you’re after some relaxing me-time, take a rose-petal bath at the Trans Spa, where a slew of rejuvenating and revitalising treatments awaits. Unclog your chakras with a yoga class, or work up a sweat at the fitness centre, where personal trainers provide individual coaching and recovery comes in the form of aromatic steam rooms, dry saunas and hot and cold plunge pools. For families, a comprehensive kids’ club allows little ones to explore their creativity through arts and crafts, LEGO®, a pirate’s ship playground and a multimedia corner – giving parents some much-needed time off.
