“The Ize caters to those who are after an action packed holiday right in the middle of Bali’s most exciting neighbourhood”
This contemporary urban hotel is located on the busiest street in Seminyak. Part of the Lifestyle Retreats family, The Ize (click here) caters to those who are after an action packed holiday right in the middle of Bali’s most exciting neighbourhood
Entering the lobby, the striking grey geometric panelling that wraps around the property enhances the polished concrete of this urban sprawl. With its minimalist architecture, muted stone and light wood , sharp lines and high ceiling have been used to create an austere aesthetic. Light fills the lobby and the clever design blurs the line between inside and outside, the hotel feels expansive despite not being set on sprawling grounds.
The lobby itself is no frills. It isn’t large and didn’t have any sort of ‘grandeur’ upon arrival. The lobby was softened a touch by the rounded blue and grey fabric couch and a simple check in desk. Checking-in was extremely quick which is definitely suited towards the younger crowd that mostly stay there.
We stayed in the deluxe room. Our room was compact but for two people there was ample space. It was comfortable and simplistic and the signature blue and white colour scheme continued throughout the room. Meanwhile the blonde wooden floors and concrete tiled bathroom gave it a very metropolitan feel.
Pool & Gym:
The IZE has two pools. On the roof is an infinity pool for all guests, with sunbeds, a small bar and panoramic view over the rooftops of Seminyak. The other is on the ground floor and is for the exclusive use of Deluxe Pool room guests.
There is also a small gym with treadmills and a few free weights. It’s not strictly a 24hr gym but if you would like it open after hours, it’s an easy call to the concierge and they will open it up for you.

- Rooftop pool and bar
- Rooftop is shaded, so no direct tanning sun
- Through no fault of the hotel – there was major construction going on next door while we stayed there which was very noisy, October 2016
The Ize is in the thick of it when staying in Seminyak. An overabundance of shopping, restaurants & pubs are literally at your doorstep.
