I keep noticing that the negative comments about Bonsai Villas disappear. How is this so? If they can be removed then I do not trust the comments on Trip Advisor. The units are dirty and the shower has mould growing in it. I would not recommend this accom to anyone. The location is its only asset.

Wow !! Its taken 6 months to find the right words to try and destroy Bonsai Villas.Obviously a personal vendetta of some kind.Topped off with the suggestion Trip Adviser deletes bad reviews...that will not go down very well with them as they refuse any suggestion to do so. Wonderful rewarding reviews from great past,present and future guests will bury remarks... More

My only apprehension in reviewing Bonsai Villas is that it may become so popular I may struggle to get a reservation in the future : - ) Bonsai Villas came highly recommended to me by a close friend who has stayed here on 5 occasions previously and absolutely loves it. The Villas are beautifully and tatstefully designed in a Japanese... More

My partner and I stayed for three days at the bonsai villas. My only regret is it was not longer. It is very well located at the back of bintang supermarket and wonderful cafe seminyak. The villa was lovely. The bed comfortable. The pool a good temoerature. But what made it special was the staff. So friendly and unobtrusive. I... More

Notwithstanding the not bad position - anyway more then 25 min walking from the beach - we found the staff very kind but not really helpful since their English was very basic and the manager was not present to support the clients. The structure had potential but is not well managed and cleaned - hair in the bedroom, very dirty... More

Hi Anna I am most surprised at your review.Do you expect to be greeted by the owner / manager where ever you check in for a 2 night stay? I meet you the day after to explain the bathroom wall you complained about was not dirty but has ceramic tiles some of which have a few where the printed design... More

We had a great stay at the villas and would thoroughly recommend this to any couples wanting a quiet stay in Bali. Would also suit a group of 4 couples as there are 4 villas all facing the pool and would be a great party place for responsible adults. The staff are very helpful and go out of their way... More

We totally enjoyed our stay and the owners and staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. We have always found the Balinese to be very honest and obliging and this was no exception, I left a whole lot of jewellery behind in the villa and everything was returned , not a thing missing. Thanks do much guys!!!

We had an amazing week at Bonsai Villas, the villas had everything you could want in a self-catering one bedroom villa. The villas are down a little lane near Bintang super market so you are close to the hustle and bustle of Seminyak but the villa is nice and peaceful. However, you can hear the Bintang announcements at times. Rudi... More

Firstly, thankyou to the amazing staff at Bonsia Villa's! We have been to bali a few times and will definitely be staying here in the future! The villa was large and beautifully designed, the staff friendly and always helpful! For the price you will not find somewhere especially around Seminyak for this such value. There are plenty of great places... More

Staff are great but a number of negatives that previous reviewers have detailed are true; warm water running out despite having QUICK showers, marked towels and linen, lounge area too hot to use when humid, pool too warm etc so what's the point in telling them when they still haven't addressed the previous problems. It's a pity that Rudi's comments... More
