Bali is an amazing place to visit, but while so far from home it can be nice to enjoy some of the comforts which we westerners have become accustomed to. That isn’t always easy overseas!
We’re often asked about the accommodations in Bali and we always say that they can vary greatly! While some choose to stay in basic hostels or homestays, others prefer more modern surroundings. For those that wish to experience Bali without sacrificing modern conveniences, Cicada Luxury Townhouses is a fabulous option based on our recent experience.
The townhouses are modern, private and spacious—perfect for a family or group of friends.
2-Bedroom Townhouse at Cicada Luxury Townhouses in Seminyak
Our two-bedroom townhouse was equipped with 2.5 bathrooms (2 indoor/outdoor bathrooms upstairs and one indoor half-bathroom downstairs), 2 large bedrooms, kitchen, dining area, family room, private plunge pool in the back and large balcony off the master bedroom. As an added bonus, our townhouse included an ample supply of bottled water in a water bubbler in the kitchen.
Breakfast was included and offered both western and Indonesian options served at a designated time of our choosing.
We found the grounds to be quiet, overall. Though there were other guests there during our stay we only really saw them as we were coming or going from our townhouse now and then.
As far as the location of Cicada, it was centrally located in Seminyak off a little side street that made it easy to go out and about while also feeling away from the hustle and bustle.
We happened to be staying at Cicada a couple days before Nyepi Day and the festivities in the area were in full swing. We were able to catch a couple processions pulling out of the resort, which was actually pretty exciting.
Service at the resort was courteous and prompt. We had an issue with the key to our back slider requiring replacement the first night we were there and they were in and out with a new key very quickly.
Everything was quite clean and tidy and seemed well cared for—from bedding to flooring to the general appearance of things.
A.C. in our townhouse worked well and seemed to keep things at a consistent temperature.
While we didn’t have time to make use of the shared pool in the center of the resort, it was quite pretty and very large! Having a private plunge pool was admittedly a bit more appealing to our family and we made good use of it. Nevertheless, we saw other guests enjoying their time in and around the central pool.
Parking was secure and plentiful as most guests seemed not to self-drive and security watched over the little lot at the entrance of the resort.

Final Thoughts on Cicada Luxury Townhouses in Seminyak
Seminyak is an especially great area for young 20-something people, in our opinions. There’s tons of convenient shopping and dining options, the beach is right there and it’s close to other popular areas such as Canggu.
The boys really enjoyed this stay and when we asked what they liked best about it they said, “Everything!” They both said they loved how big it was (it really was quite spacious) and they loved the plunge pool.
Overall, we found our stay at Cicada Luxury Townhouses to be quite pleasant and would recommend it to anyone looking for super modern accommodations while staying in this particular part of Bali.
