The Ramada Encore Hotel Seminyak is a 4* hotel on the outskirts of Seminyak. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was the perfect little escape. It is a 15-minute drive away from the centre of town, so it is a little out of the way. Make sure you bare this in mind if you are not a strong walker or wish to be in the centre of the action. There is a free shuttle service throughout the day, leaving every hour from the hotel, starting at 10am until the last shuttle at 5pm. The bus drops you in the centre, but you have to make your own way back.
It is ideal if you want to relax for a few days; the staff are incredibly attentive, and the rooms are clean with huge, comfortable beds. The staff went out of their way to help my boyfriend prepare the room for me. They went out to buy flowers to decorate the room for my arrival without asking for anything in return.
The staff also took the time to learn our names, which is a tiny gesture that makes you feel so special.
I mostly enjoyed the huge buffet breakfast that is served every morning. There is a choice of hot and cold items and eggs to order. There is something to suit everyone from English Breakfasts, a large selection of pastries, to healthy fruit bowls.
Outside, there is a large pool separated into two parts by a bridge. Around the pool area there are plenty of sunbeds, some of which are sat in shallow water which I LOVED. While sat tanning, you can drop your feet or hands in the water to cool yourself down, or slide right into the pool from your sunbed.
There is a small gym in the hotel which is free for all guests; a great way to burn off the unlimited food at breakfast!

The Ramada Encore Hotel Seminyak is only ideal if you do not want to be right in the centre of everything. It is easy enough to make your way to town, either using the free shuttle service or by grabbing a taxi, but if you prefer to be close to all the bars, restaurants and beachfront then I would look into something closer to town. If you don’t mind being slightly out of the fuss, this hotel is a lovely escape with very attentive staff and lives up to its 4* quality.
