“Chilled and Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We recently stayed here with another family in Villa Joe at Villa Arwana. Our family of 4 and a firend's family of 3. Jani and Madai were the MOST hospitable people we encountered in our 2 weeks throughout Bali.
We had 3 nights there, and in retrospect could have stayed a week. Jani's cooking of trad. Indonesian foods was just incredible, and the Bacon and Egg breakfasts were equally amazing.
If you'd like a place that is a 10 minute cab ride to the heart of busy Seminyak (30,000 Rp in a metered taxi each way) ... and have the peace and quiet after shopping and dining, this is the place. Amazing gardens, pool and amenities. We'll be back ... :-))

Room Tip: Any room will be amazing.

My daughter and I were holidaying in Bali last month. My sister (who apparently stayed in this villa before) strongly suggested that we also stay at the same villa. It turned to be one of the best experience ever. We stayed in a villa with 3 rooms and our rooms just right in front of the swimming pool. Definitely a heaven for my daughter. She wanted to swim all the time. Obviously we couldn't afford it... Dining, shopping, sight seeing are those activities we can't skip when we're in Bali. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They prepare breakfast and clean our room with heart. We totally enjoyed staying at Arwana Estate and will definitely come back.

Great place to stay and we love to recommend to those who want to make their escapade in Bali.

Room Tip: They have 1-bedroom villa that suits for a couple or small family (1 child). For a big family, get a...

Upon arrival at the Bali International Airport, the Villa's driver picked us up swiftly right from the arrival hall in a comfy Toyota Innova. Upon arrival at the Villa Dani (1-Bedroom Villa) , my partner and i were wow'ed at the well thought out space with an exceptionally big private pool, huge bathroom and an outdoor rain shower. We sat down for our first meal prepared by the chefs that will cook at your villa's kitchen while you take in the surroundings and what a meal that was, presentation and taste wise was superb!

It was a perfect place to come back to after a day's out exploring Bali. Had no complaints but compliments for the 3 nights that i stayed there and truly enjoyed the private pool for at least 2 nights which was a pity for me. I arranged for a V'day decor and candle-lit dinner at the villa and the staff outdid themselves with the decor and a tastefully done steak dinner for two.

If you are looking for a place to escape reality and just laze around by your very own sizable private pool. Arwana Estate is it, will come back here again.

The place is secluded and is very peaceful - away from the hustle and bustle from all the shopping and traffic but yet it is not too far from the "happening place" in Bali. We were staying at 1 bedroom vila. It is huge for a one-bedroom villa - 750 sqm! It has a great ambience and is very private. It is definitely highly recommended for the honeymooners! The staff are so friendly, the cook (one of them is excellent)! All in all we enjoyed staying there.

Room Tip: This is a villa and this one-bedroom villa is the best! The size is perfect for just two of us. Ther...

Amazing villas in the out of town section of Seminyak, i loved it because ti was so peaceful and quiet, did not do much except read, eat and drink. great pool and relaxing area the staff cooked meals at our request for no charge and we just had a big chill out. the quality/ cleanliness of the villa is good (stayed in Dana 1 bedroom). spa room so you can have treatments in your villa no need to actually leave the villa if that is what you need.

would recommend it thoroughly for this in need of a great relax

I stayed with friends at 3 beds villa with pool in the beginning of August. Everything was just perfect, Location was great, Room and living room was beautifully styled, outdoor shower and bath were uniquely designed and private pool was very pretty. Driver, staffs, managers are extremely helpful, professional and kind. Decoration of whole villa was fantastic and very relaxing. Have to say it is perfect place and honeymoon and family gathering though I stayed with my friends this time.
I especially appreciated their extra kind service to provide very early breakfast around 6:30AM only for us as we had to leave at 7:00AM for Flight. Absolutely fantastic time, I will definitely stay again next time I visit Bali!

I loved the Villas.
Spacious outdoor area, comfortable beds, AMAZING outdoor shower and massive bathtub!
This time I went with friends, but surely I will be back with my girlfriend.
The estate is, personally speaking, perfect for its location - away from the Szeminyak hussle and bussle area, but still a few minutes drive away.
And the management is clearly wanting to serve the guests and listens to their feedback!
Go and enjoy...the breakfast food was real tasty, too!
