With all the new hotels opening up in Bali, we often find ourselves in an intersection of the old and the new. Some chose to hold on to the traditional Balinese look while other go straight to contemporary. But amongst those places, Montigo Resorts, Seminyak stood out like no others. It was built on the foundation of a famous hotel in Seminyak, and they make it their own. So much so that they built a swimming pool right by the street side, inviting people to notice them – and allow people to fall in love with them. Here are the things we love about them…

1. IT’S FIFTY SHADES OF BLUE
One thing you will notice right away about Montigo Resorts, Seminyak is how vibrant they are – while blending in at the same time. Walk into the lobby, and you will smile at the sight of the aquamarine desk. Tilo’s uniform is a dark blue and you can see it in various design elements too. Walk into the restaurants and you see some more blue. It’s in the pool, it’s the color of the plates, it’s in the drinks, and many more. What’s essential about these dominating colors are the fact that they scream FUN, and this is exactly what you’re going to experience when staying at the Montigo Resorts, Seminyak.

2. THE ROOMS
Walking down the small stone path towards the room is already fun in itself. The gardens and the leafy walls make the short trip so scenic. The room itself is very spacious. One thing you will immediately notice is its big bed. It is their signature Montigo beds that are paired with the finest bed linens. It is so soft and cool, makes you want to lie there and never leave. A long table for some work or a comfy sofa to watch the TV is part of the room. Moreover, there is a big balcony with big chairs that is perfect to unwind as we enjoy the greeneries surrounding us. Seriously, one of the best rooms in the island.

3. TILO KIDS CLUB
The heart and soul of Montigo is Tilo, their mascot. When you enter the Tilo Kids Club, you can read all about Tilo’s story. Why do we love this kids club? First of all, it is the biggest kids club in Seminyak. It has several areas, for toddlers, teens, they have their own playroom with PS3 and Wii. We love their reading corner, and their lego corner as well. It is perfectly safe to leave your kids there because all the staffs are highly qualified with kids. Check out their schedule to see the activities available. Another thing we love is that Tilo Kids Club is available for everyone, the Montigo Resorts guest and outside guest. So if you want to come just for the spa or the pool or dine at the restaurants, just take your kids to Tilo Kids Club. It’s every parent’s dream.

4. THE POOL
Which pool? We love them all. There is three pool at Montigo Resorts, Seminyak. The first one is the Tiigo Pool located right by Tiigo Restaurants. It is part of Tiigo and is available to use for everyone who eats at Tiigo or had a spa treatment at Montigo Spa. It is the place to see and to be seen, so book your VIP spot right away. The other two are the garden pool and the main pool. These pools are for staying guest only. So this is the perfect spot to enjoy Bali’s sun and cool off afterward.

5. TIIGO RESTAURANT
It is easy to mistaken Tiigo restaurant as a drinking place because the bar is right up front and people are loving their drinks while lounging by the pool area. But there are more to Tiigo that meets the eye. Come inside and try their fine selections. Tiigo Restaurant is led by Chef Alit Subawa, who has been working as a chef for more than 30 years. And boy, he is serious about his food. Go for his authentic Balinese trio and you will experience the real deal. We love it so much that we have a whole dedicated review of the restaurant HERE.

6. MONTIGO SPA
Okay, we haven’t say it enough… come and try the Montigo Massage at Montigo Spa. If you love that long strokes technique combined with kneading to really work on those muscles, then this is the treatment for you. It will melt all your aches and sores away. If you want to try other treatments, they have everything from facial, signature bath to kids spa day packages. Moreover, check out our review HERE.

7. ENDLESS ADVENTURE
