Fun and Quirky, Like No Other - Studiotel Luna2

Well to be honest, I never expected I found this cool, playful and colorful property in the middle of Bali. When other properties in Bali mostly adopted traditional Bali ambiance, Studiotel Luna2 come out with this great idea and bring this property in a whole new level. Initially, I heard about this property from Hotel Quickly. A couple weeks ago they posted a picture of a colorful pool in Studiotel Luna2 and I loved it at the first sight. Therefore I planned to visit this hotel on my trip to Bali. Lucky me, I greeted by Mr. Asni (Luna2 Director of Sales) and Mrs Ellisa (Luna2 Head of Communication), they were really nice and humble and it was a great time to have a chat with them.
If you wondering why they named it Luna2? and where is Luna1? Well actually Studiotel Luna2 named after the first spacecraft to land on the moon in late 50's and as we knew Luna1 crashed and failed to do its mission.
The designer, Melanie Hall refers to her design style as "Funked-up modernism", with references to modernism and 60's pop. At the first time I came to their colorful lobby, I felt like "wooowww it's like a playroom" I found a cute and colorful rubic shape stool *I really want to take it home* and that Monopoly man on the glass door. Hall also designed the property with futuristic things, corresponding with Luna2 ethos, "Respects the past, welcomes the future and like to have fun in the process!"
Elissa explained to me that this property only have 14 rooms that divided into 3 type of rooms; studio, grand studio and sunset studio. The hallway to each room was really unusual, they adopted monopoly board design. Instead of using number to a room, they gave a different name to each room based on a color inside the room with property/city name in Monopoly board game British edition. There are Mayfair, Strand, Piccadilly and Bond Street which are also London's foremost addresses.

Piccadilly Street - Studio
It called "Studiotel" because of their super-spacious studio rooms yet it still a hotel :). All studio rooms facilitated with not only one but three TV's, one flatscreen in lounge area and bathroom and one Brionvega TV at workstation. I love every single detail of each room, where you can find a "Maxi" Bar in retro SMEG fridge. Too bad that I couldn't take a look to their Mayfair sunset studio because it occupied.
Beside those super spacious rooms, they also have other facilities such as; colorful Pool side where I found Mr. Spock and Pink Panther on the wall, Orbit Restaurant, POP! Lounge Bar, Space Rooftop Bar, Wine Cellar and my favorite spot Lunaplex, ultra-plush 16 seat private cinema that has 3 showing per day, hey they also have popcorn machine outside the room and not to mention their supppeerrrr cozy seat. As a sunset lover, I think I will spend my afternoon on Space Rooftop Bar for sunset photo hunter.
