Funky, arty and modern Tijili Hotel bursts with a riot of tropical colour in its art-filled lobby, easily mistaken as a children’s toy box with colourful wooden blocks and shapes suspended from the ceiling.

The quirky creative touch continues throughout this multi-storey hotel into the flamboyant bar/restaurant, relaxing small pool area and the considerably calmer rooms. Although the style may seem hip and contemporary, many subtle references to Balinese culture are hidden within the fun decor. The name Tijili is an alternative spelling of cili, a lontar palm effigy of the Balinese rice goddess, Dewi Sri—and the symbol is used as a pattern throughout.

The beach is 500 metres away, and there's always the pool.

Smart, stylish air-con rooms are bright, spacious and cool with traditional cement tiles underfoot and feature locally designed contemporary teak furniture. The ambience is serene, but a little eccentric—look for the bunnies and birds climbing up the lamps, even the quirky animal-shaped towel art doesn’t seem out of place here (they offer towel art lessons free on Fridays too!). Bed heads padded with modern striped ikat complement the crisp white linen on the bouncy beds. Amenities include flatscreen TVs with cable channels, a safe and a minibar. Ensuite bathrooms are as neat and smart as the rooms with hot-water rainfall showers, with the junior suite including a fabulous copper bathtub. Note the Dewi Sri pattern in the opaque glass screens.

Rooms face towards the pool or the street, some with tiny narrow balconies to step out for air. When your clothes need a wash, Tijili Hotel offer an ”all you can fit in our laundry bag” deal.

Styling is sleek in the rooms, too.

Turn up the (colour and design) volume as you head to the Kakatua Tropic Lounge, where your included breakfast is served—we didn't quite know where to look in this fun and exuberant ice-cream-coloured parlour. Even the non-slip paint on the ramp is a Pollock-like splash of bright pastel colour.

As the day moves on, head poolside for a cocktail (with daily happy hours) and occasional evening DJs (not so late you can’t sleep). Jump in for a dip to the cool inviting aqua waters, then laze in a poolside bean bag shaded by tropical foliage. When it’s time for the beach, a scheduled buggy will drop you there, although it’s only a 500-metre walk.

It's all about colour at Tijili.

The bright creative style at Tijili Hotel is a breath of fresh air, along with friendly staff and the spacious calm rooms make a decent midrange deal in Seminyak. For big spenders whose taste is contemporary Indonesian, Potato Head's Katamama is the place to be seen.
