Hello Bali, we’re back for a short trip and this time we got the chance to experience the newly opened Tijili Seminyak for 2 nights. Tijili Seminyak is a brand new boutique hotel, located just steps away from seminyak beach, and only 20 minutes drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport. Well, actually it’s still in it’s soft opening period, but in so many ways it is already complete.
– Lobby area –
As we walk entering the hotel Lobby, we are impressed with the hotel design.. It was colorful, funky, unique and different in a good way. Everything looks so cute, start from the lobby to the restaurant.
– Receptionist lobby –
And as we enter our room, we a little bit surprise because it was more simple than we expected, maybe it’s because we expected a playful and unique room :)… For the bathroom, it was simple and clean… And we got a balcony overlooked the pool area.

The pool is not too big but is very pretty surrounded by greens, cute colorful bean bags chairs and cubic table. And here at Tijili we can use the pool until 11PM, which is great because me and my friends love to chit chat by the pool and swim at night.
The pool area also connects directly to the restaurant and lounge area, where you can also lazy around in the sofa while ordering breakfast or even a signature drinks from the bar.
– Swimming Pool area –
– Towel –
– Breakfast by the pool –
However, the pool’s depth is not clearly written anywhere near the pool and the staffs seemed lack of training, they were not exactly helpful in term of providing the information. So my suggestion is they need to write down the depth so family with small children can get the information before they swim.
The breakfasts are served in their main restaurant which is Kakatua Tropic Lounge located next to the lobby.
– Restaurant 1 –
– Restaurant 2 –
– Restaurant 3 –
– Restaurant 4 –
– Restaurant 5 –
And currently they only have 3 options of a la carte breakfasts from American, Intercontinental, and Indonesian.
– Intercontinental breakfast –
– Indonesian Breakfast –
– American Breakfast –
However, they are preparing the buffet station for the breakfast and hopefully it will be available starting from next month. And eventhough the breakfast are served a la carte, everything taste delicious and fulfilling, so don’t worry.
Beside breakfast we also tried 3 of Kakatua Tropic signature dishes : a mouthwatering pork belly, Pan – Seared Mahi Mahi and last but not least the balinese iconic dish ” Bebek Betutu Goreng “…
– Pork Belly –
– Pan-seared Mahi Mahi –
– Bebek Betutu Goreng –
As I was told you earlier, this hotel it’s self still in its soft opening period, so they still improving a lot of things.
But Overall, I was satisfied staying at Tijili and Tijili would be a great choice for everyone who love art or for everyone who seeking for a cozy hotel with affordable price and good location.
