I spend a ridiculous amount of my pre-holiday time researching for hotels with amazing pools. When we plan to go somewhere humid like Bali, the one requirement I have is that we have a brilliant pool to laze around during our stay. IZE in Seminyak ticked all of my requirements and the roof top bar/pool was everything my pre holiday research had hoped it would have been.
Coming from Queensland you would think I would be used to heat and humidity, but I continue to buck the trend and struggle my way through any climate that is even slightly tropical in nature. Don’t be alarmed, it’s nothing a cocktail and a swim can’t fix! Safe to say when the poolside bar wall is made up entirely of cocktail bottles and liquors you know you’re in the right place and that everything is going to work just fine.
The architecture of this hotel is absolutely stunning and every level or hallway has an interesting little twist to it that I just loved. Funnily enough on our first visit to Bali, we found this restaurant on the main strip in Seminyak Square that had an amazing 2-4-1 Mojito special every afternoon. Tim is a mojito enthusiast to say the least so we found we visited a few times during that trip. Without knowing it, it turns out the restaurant with the fabulous mojitos we were so fond of was the hotel restaurant of IZE attached to the street level of the hotel. So for our most recent visit the universe simply sent us back to where the good times began and we took care of it from there.
