“Hidden away from the hustle and bustle that Bali can be, but is close enough to everything you could want or need. The best way to describe it is WOW” Steven, Australia
The Bali Ginger Suites are the place to begin. Your starting point. Easing yourself into Bali, tasting the shopping, the restaurants, the beaches and the nightlife. You choose how deep you want to allow yourself to go, whether that is simply dipping a toe in, or full immersion.
“The location is great and convenient. The price is affordable as well. The hotel staffs are friendly and keep our room neat and tidy whenever we are back. We love the concept and the design of the room. The bed is very comfortable as well. We have good night sleep throughout our stays there. We will definitely go back to stay with Bali Ginger suite again.” Adeline, Singapore
The Bali Ginger Suites are the place to end. Where you go when the party is over, when your body has said, “take me to bed”, and when you simply need to power-up the batteries and be ready for the next adventure that Bali has in store for you.
They are a refuge, just a stroll from the night-life, or a jog to the beach. They are a calming piece of tranquility amidst the rolling tides of opportunity that ebb and flow, and that Seminyak always provides.
“The room is like a small villa – more than enough room. The pool is right by your doorstep.” Azlenda, Singapore
All of the Bali Ginger Suite rooms have Free WiFi, Cable TV, DVD player (by request), kitchenettes, IDD telephone and air-conditioned bedrooms. The property features a green-stone tiled 14 metre pool with comfortable sunbeds for you to relax underneath towering palms. There is a 24 hour reception desk, complimentary tea, coffee and unlimited drinking water. The mini bar stocks drinks at supermarket prices.
The beds are uniquely designed and are fitted with bamboo linen, which is rapidly becoming famed for its softness. Does sleeping in a beautiful bed help to make dreams come true? We think so.

Interaction with Guests
We do not live at Bali Ginger Suites, but do drop in from time to time, especially as our coffee is the best in town. However our wonderful staff are always there and are fully trained to help you with your every need, as best they can giving the local conditions, both before your arrival and during your stay. We pride ourselves in the personalised service we can offer, as we provide just 10 beautiful rooms in a unique boutique tropical holiday setting.
Bali Ginger Suites is tucked away off the main streets, but is right in the heart of Seminyak, surrounded by a great range of shops, restaurants and entertainment in every direction. Many are within walking distance or a short $2 taxi ride. There are delicious restaurants for all budgets and all tastes; live music venues playing Jazz and Blues, Elvis cover bands and yes even a few drag queen shows. There are sports bars, nightclubs, supermarkets, spas, salons and boutiques. It is also a short 500 metre walk to the beach, which has great cafes for enjoying a beer and sea food while the sun sets. Taxis are plentiful and cheap, and allow our guests to venture further afield to Legian and Kuta or in the other direction to Petitenget for Potato Head and the growing number of great restaurants in that direction.
The precinct is definitely “inner city”, and is vibrant after dark. You will certainly hear music from the clubs at night. However we have designed the property to minimise noise using materials selected for their sound insulation properties and give our guests a restful nights sleep. We also do not permit guests to disturb other guests after 9pm.
What do we love about our neighbourhood?

About the Host, Lou
We moved to Bali from Australia in 2007 with our youngest son. In Australia, my husband Grahame was a highly acclaimed Theatre Director and Writer whilst I was a successful Theatre Set and Costume Designer, Tour Manager and Producer. Having reached the peak in our respective careers and with our eldest son married and living in Sydney, it was time for a new adventure, a new life and a new challenge. We had finished renovating our dream home in Fremantle and I had my dream job as Cultural Development Officer for the City of Fremantle. But I've learnt that the problem with making your dreams come true, you are sure to have another dream. We were ready for a new adventure. When I was offered a job to teach at a school in Bali we leaped at the opportunity and within 6 weeks we had packed and moved to Bali to the surprise of friends and family. We were ready to immerse ourselves into a new culture whilst at the same time we hoped to indulge in some of the delights this tropical island has to offer. We built our Bali tropical dream home and that was meant to be that. Our plan wasn't to work in the hospitality industry running a small boutique hotel but that is what we have ended up doing. It started with Grahame finding a couple of antique Chinese houses which we immediately fell in love with and thought we could do something interesting with. As a professional set designer I feel like I have set the stage again, but this time it is for a tropical holiday for our guests to indulge all of their senses in the sights, sounds, tastes and tropical delights this beautiful island has to offer. Grahame on the other hand is still directing and writing, but now he is directing numerous workers, housekeepers, cooks, gardeners, tradesmen and maintenance people in the task of providing a relaxing tropical holiday so that this time your dream can come true.
We feel very fortunate to be able to call Bali home and join our Bali friends and family in welcoming you to this special island and trust you have a wonderful holiday in the good care of our wonderful staff.
