New Social Tone
Kuta’s wiser next-door neighborhood, Seminyak, is heading off in its own direction, and The Breezes Bali Resort & Spa is helping to steer. While nights here remain bright and alive, some of the area’s prominent names have undergone transforming renovations – to set the new trend. The beachside area is set to become ‘somewhere to be enjoyed with a glass of wine,’ said one of Bali’s largest property developers. Such is it at The Breezes Bali, where the lagoon-style, tiered pool twists through the gardened courtyard interior, giving swim-up access to a beach of white sand, a well-stocked, sunken pool bar, a volleyball area, and other choice facilities. Here there are options for both rain or shine ever near: a cutting-edge guest cinema, a tennis court, a gem of a spa, and a spotless, replete fitness center offering Pilates and Yoga. The resort now deserves a second take, perhaps a cool night in a new, poolside Junior Suite, or dinner and drinks at d’Base Restaurant under Chef Henry Bloem – twice named Indonesia’s top Chef.
