Bottom Line

They also have kitchens with modern appliances as well as luxe bathrooms with large walk-in rainfall showers and soaking tubs that overlook the pools outside. Though they lack living rooms, they have sitting areas in the bedrooms. Facilities are sparse, but room service is available and daily breakfasts are included in some rates (plus floating breakfasts served in pools are available). The area is close to shops and dining options on Sunset Road. It's not within walking distance of the beach -- but free shuttles are provided.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Small lobby with nautical accents; no common spaces 

This upscale property offers just eight private guest villas and not much in terms of extra facilities or features. There aren't any common spaces beyond the lobby, though it makes a positive first impression with its beachy-chic decor and inviting, relaxed atmosphere. Blue dominates the space, which includes an azure couch and armchairs against a backdrop of cream tile floors and blond-wood wall paneling. Details like a bounty of white and yellow orchids in a vase, a pretty bouquet on the front desk, and a school of sculptural fish adorning the wall, are lovely touches. Though the space is small, large windows on three walls add a sense off airiness and fill it with light. The hotel particularly caters to couples, offering various romantic packages for honeymoons and wedding anniversaries that includes flower petals strewn across beds upon arrival and other charming touches like notes handwritten on leaves. 

Location

Near shops and dining, and a 10-minute drive to the beach

The hotel is a bit removed from the main touristy areas and the beach, but there are a couple of dining options, cafes, and shops nearby. There are many other hotels and villa accommodations in the area, while the nearby Sunset Road (five-minute walk away) is lined with shops. The nearest beach is about a 10-minute drive away, while popular beaches like Double Six and Legian are 10 and 13 minutes away, respectively. Seminyak Square is a seven-minute drive from the hotel. Other area attractions like the Bali Blast Monument, Waterbom Bali water park, and the Discovery Shopping Mall can be reached in about 15 minutes. Ngurah Rai International Airport is a 17-minute drive from the hotel.

Rooms

Stylish villas have kitchens, luxe bathrooms, and outdoor areas with private jetted pools and hammocks

The hotel's eight private villas feature inviting contemporary decor with a relaxed beach-y feel. Think: bright and airy interiors full of light wood, white hues, and large windows overlooking the greenery outside. Though the villas aren't overly spacious and lack separate living rooms, they are functionally laid out and offer living areas with two couches in the bedrooms. Blond-wood floors and wood paneling on the bedroom walls make the spaces feel cozy, and are paired with white furnishings and bedding for a crisp, clean effect. Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs, DVD players, iPod docks, safes, and free Wi-Fi. 

There's also plenty of space to relax outside: the lovely green outdoor areas include private jetted pools (complete with unicorn or flamingo floats!), sunbeds, and hammocks. All villas also have small kitchens clad in white, with white wicker furniture for seating as well as modern appliances that include microwaves, two-burner stoves, electric kettles, mini-fridges with a few cold drinks, and toasters, plus dishware is supplied. Upscale marble bathrooms have freestanding soaking tubs and separate walk-in rainfall showers, while glass sliding doors open onto the pool area. Bathrobes, hairdryers, and a full set of toiletries (including dental kits) are provided. Note that some of the villas can get noise from the busy street nearby.

Features

No on-site facilities, but various services available including room service and free shuttles to nearest beach

This small property doesn't offer much in terms of facilities, but all villas have private pools and kitchens, making them fairly self-sufficient. A number of extras add value to a stay here, however, such as freebies like daily mineral water, coffee and tea, welcome drinks, and scheduled shuttle service to the nearest beach and to Seminyak. Free airport transfers are also included in some rates (depending on length of stay).Though there's no restaurant on-site, room service is available and includes items like veggie burgers and truffle fries. A la carte breakfasts are included in some rates, plus the hotel offers floating breakfasts delivered to pools. Wi-Fi is free in the villas and lobby. Other amenities include laundry services, babysitting services, and free parking. Guests also have access to the hotel's DVD library.
