“Quiet Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Beautiful grounds and pools, delicious food, unique rooms, and exceptional service! My wife and I truly loved the quiet paradise that is Villa Balquisse. I will (and have already) highly recommended Villa Balquisse to everyone I know planning a trip to Bali.

Two friends and myself arrived in Bali in a jaded state due to a week of travel thru Asia, and needed a quiet place to restore our senses. After extensive reasearch we chose Villa Balquisse, and in the lush grounds and lovely staff we found just what we were looking for!
What really sets this place apart is the relative quiet due to only having a few rooms instead of the "join the masses" resort style Intercontinental across the street, and most of all, the staff! Their cheerful attitude and willingness to do their best is what transforms an average experience into a great one! They arranged a trip to Gili T, did our laundry, stored our bags, came in an hour early just to make us breakfast before our early departure- all done with a smile and a sincere desire to please. Thank you staff for your excellent service!
Everything was spotless except one of two pools, and when we left they were cleaning it. Location was fine, in a little quieter location still very accessable with a smooth airport transfer included. The only thing I will call, is though it is near the beach, you need to walk all the long way around the nearby properties to gain access, so it is a bit of a walk.
All in all, an excellent choice, one of my most memoriable stays!!!

Jimbaran Bay is not one of my favourite places in Bali. However, 2 nights at Villa Balquisse made it so much better!
They have 2 very serene pools that you could spend a whole day at relaxing at. Complimentary fruit kebabs and afternoon tea were served by the pools which were much appreciated!!!
Our room was spacious, & clean and the A/C worked well.
The breakfast was good and the salads at lunch were scrumptious!!!!

I arrived very late in the evening at Villa Balquisse and was completely uplifted when I saw my room, it was absolutely gorgeous! So different from anywhere I have previously stayed with lantern lighting scattered everywhere and lovely, unique furnishings. The emphasis on decorations and furnishings in the room blew me away, it all comes together so nicely, totally loved it! My bathroom had a lovely bath and my bedroom also opened onto a nice court yard. What I totally loved was the outdoor living area, and spent some time there, was so relaxing and tastefully decorated, overlooking the two swimming pools. The restaurant was lovely as well and the food of good quality, breakfast offered a number of choices. The evening menu offered lots of options and the food was very nice. I had a number of massages and spa treatments and the massages were the best I have ever had in Bali, amazing, I would highly recommend. Finally the staff, they are all wonderful and so welcoming, friendly and accommodating. I could not speak highly enough of them, they are all fantastic. Villa Balquisse is a beautiful accommodation, with a strong Moroccan influence that allows you to escape the world behind the gates and totally relax and refresh and I would encourage anyone to visit this beautiful oasis, you will not be disappointed.

Firstly, we have to agree with many of the recent comments posted here. We stayed in Room 2 (highly recommended and beautifully decorated with flowers) and thoroughly enjoyed everything about this gorgeous boutique hotel, which is an 'oasis of calm' amid the chaos of the main road outside. The staff were discreet, yet very efficient and the hotel certainly delivered for us on every level - fabulous food, lovely massages, convenient location for the beach and most importantly, a chance to relax following our 12.12.12 wedding and before our next flight to a remote diving resort further east.
Villa Balquisse is a very convenient location for the airport, but the downside is the traffic chaos caused by new road building around the airport. Best to leave ample time when travelling in that direction! Bali's new airport is due to open in 2013 and it is to be hoped that the road construction will be completed at the same time.
We would definitely stay at Villa Balquisse again as it is a charming place that truly captured our hearts!

Room Tip: We liked Room 2 with the elevated bed and day bed, plus the big bath had plenty of space for two.

The villas are located walking distance to the beach and they offer a free beach shuttle, good food, drinks and have a lovely spa on site. The gardens and common areas around the pools were very comfortable and well thought out. Our room was a little odd as the bed placement was strange( too wide for the space) the bathroom could only be accessed by walking through a courtyard and unfortunately our room smelt of cigarette smoke, it also lacked adequate lighting and bedside tables which made it quite awkward.
All in all it's a lovely place but I would ask for a different room if I returned.

After one week spend in ubud and north island, visiting temple, small village, rice field terrace, trekking with local staff from our first place we stayed, we arrived at villa balquisse. We were very impressed by the design the mixed atmosphere from Maroco and Bali. You always feel the quiet of this place around two charming swimming pool. Our room #4 was perfect, under the roof, you have got the this first light of the sun rise which wake you up, then you are ready to take a very tasty, fresh and full breakfast. The staff is discrete and very kind, regarding information or organizing activities you better to do it your self.
The bad point we noticed was the location, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Kuta....too much noise, traffic, construction, even not accomplished construction. Even the beach are not not so exciting. 2 days would be enough to visit Uluwatu, Padang Padang, Balangan and then enjoyed a grilled lobster on Jimbaran beach. For those who want to have a drink on the rock bar, be aware of the dress code and the queue to enjoy the sunset.
However We really enjoy our visit of the area of canggu and seminyak, much more quiet and authentic, even if the beach are famous for surfers.
