If indoor feline flinging is your thing or you just crave a bit of space, Aq-Va puts the room in your room with their spacious suites. Aq-Va by name and aqua by colour scheme too, well at least prominent pops of turquoise in the ultra modern mostly gleaming white rooms.

We only viewed the studio suites, which clock in at 40 square metres, but larger double-storey one-bedroom mezzanine suites and two-bedroom suites are available too, as well as private villas in a rather uninviting wasteland behind the hotel.

Cool mid-century chic.

The smart hotel rooms are set in modern three/four-storey glass-fronted blocks edging two courtyard swimming pools, tucked within a dogleg corner of Jalan Werkudara. Studios offer a choice of twin or double beds along with sofas and additional seating areas and furnished balconies and terraces, and other suites add kitchenettes and dining space.

Furnishings are contemporary copies of mid-century design, chic but not very Balinese. Rooms are equipped with all mod cons. Smart modern ensuites sport hot-water rainfall showers along with ample bench space and storage.

Putting the aqua into Aq-Va.

The aqua coloured (of course) pools occupy two separate paved courtyards. Pops of cascading foliage and the odd potted tree brighten up the space, but we found it rather lackinn in tropical ambience; perhaps the trees just need some time to grow, however it is bright and eye-catching.

Buffet-style breakfast included in the rate is served in the street-front restaurant. We found the staff a little officious, and they were unwilling to offer rates to potential walk-in guests—they told us to look it up on the internet (our pet peeve). Guests we spoke to regarded the service highly and the security guard we spoke to was very friendly and helpful. We think Aq-Va is a decent midrange deal considering the meterage you get for your buck. You may also like the smaller rooms at modern-style Ossotel.
