We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa. Location in Seminyak not bad, not directly next to a beach however. Villas themselves and pool are good size and layout. Bbq we had at the villa on the first night was very good. Overall however the stay was marred by a list of problems. Two toilets did not flush properly and we needed to get fixed. One bedroom phone had to be replaced. The pool filters or pump had a problem so after the first day a dirty film appeared on the surface which was never satisfactorily fixed hence we could not fully utilize the pool. In house dining apart from the bbq was v average. Breakfast coffee was initially just made from instant powder till I complained. A member of our group asked for a head spa and was sent someone who did not speak english and did not have a working hair dryer. The blinds on some of the windows in our bedroom did not fully block out sunlight hence would wake earlier than we ideally wished to. As if to underline the problems there was a blackout on our last night which lasted 30mins or so. A few years ago this villa was probably high tech but we had to ask for an ipod dock which should be standard. On checking in and checking out their machine could not read my card despite my having used it without problem on the previous day at other locations. There were no real apologies made for all the troubles nor any offer of compensation. If we had not already been late for our airport pickup due to the card difficulties I would have pushed for this but did not have time. They charged $48 for airport transfer, admittedly a large van but we got another quote from a cab driver of 150,000 IDR ie around $15 so a ripoff.

C151 at semniyak is just a walk away from Seminyak square, lots of bars,shopping, convenience stores etc, and just a stone throw away from KudeTa and the beach. This is one of the best located villa property in seminyak.

Service is par excellence, check in took just 2 mins. meanwhile the luggage was shifted to our 2-bedroom + entertainment room (converted to kids room) villa, we were explained to operate the gadgets which were in huge supply and in every nook n corner of the villa;
like : Jacuzzi & steam room with TV Screens, motorized curtains, living room with expansive music system, entertainment room with electronic massage beds and the list goes on..
The breakfast is served right in your villa at your convenience. Room service menu is not too great but has something from every cuisine to offer.

We went during the Nyepi which is balinese new year and had to stay in the villa all day long with no outdoor activities. This could have been a disaster in any other hotel or resort but in C151 we enjoyed the villa's pool (which is quite big) with pool music system & kitchen to cook some INDIAN food. Not to forget the in-Villa couple massage just $ 60 for 90 min,, steal !

This place is a bit pricey compared to NUSA DUA luxury properties, but a different taste from regular luxury hotel rooms !

Recently stayed at C151 for our wedding/honeymoon. At first glance, we were surprised at the size of the villa. It was very spacious, and with all the modern gadgetry that appealed to my husband very much...the automatic toilet...amazing!
Staff was very friendly and accommodating and willing to go out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
The villa was ideally located to all the shops (ie Seminyak Square) and all the eateries, which was useful.
The only downside in our opinion was that the rooms were a little to far apart and the heavy double doors could probably get a looked at as it was heavy to open and close and since we had to go from one room to the other often, it became a little bother.
Although breakfast was included, food was passable but not amazing.

All in all, we had a pleasant experience staying at the villa and would definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

Room Tip: It is a great place to stay if you're looking to holiday with a group of friends or family, as t...

My partner, brother and sister-in-law have just returned from 8 days in Bali, 5 of which we spent at C151 Smart Villas. Having been to Bali 5 times previously, and being a huge fan of Seminyak, I found C151 to be perfectly located. Within walking distance of the beach, bars and restaurants, and yet far enough away for a little quite time in your villa. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa, which we found to be very spacious, clean and tidy. The service was fantastic... nothing was a bother and all requests were actioned immediately. The staff were very friendly and happy to be of assistance. Their english was not the best but hey that's Bali, and if you are patient, speak clearly and simply communication is not a problem. The breakfast was ok, though as its not cooked on site and delivered to the villas, it's wasn't as fresh as an onsite breakfast. That said though we had no problems with requesting more juice, butter or brown bread instead of white etc. The staff were very accommodating. The high-tech gadgets i.e. remote control blinds, stereo and automatic toilet flash etc. gave the villas a point of difference and were quite fun. I'm sure there are better villas in Seminyak for the price however I doubt you'd find a better location and overall service and space provided at C151. I would definitely stay there again and recommend to others!!!

Spent 16 nights in 2 Bedroom Smart Villa. In fact all villas are identical. They open up 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. This means that all the common areas are always available : Rather big swimming pool, terrace, living room, dining room and kitchen. The most "high tech" thing we found was the automated toilet. You get used to it after a while. The rest is equipped with remote controls :light, curtains, airco, tv etc. Nice are the loudspeakers throughout the villa (inside and outside) that can play the same music (MP3, Radio, CD).
A major checkup of our villa would get rid of a number of small problems. But when a problem was mentioned, immediate corrective action was taken.
Staff are helpful, friendly and polite, although their English knowledge is sometimes limited. Hey, this is Bali...
The breakfast (included in the price) is always the same; Not bad, but not a highlight.You can allways get extra food or drinks in the nearby supermarkets, like we did. It is prepared in the central kitchen and then served in the villa.
To go to beach (in front of Kudeta), you just call for a buggy, who brings you there in 2 minutes. Nice and easy.
The C151 villa's are located in the heart of Seminyak, so no problem to WALK to many restaurants.
We would definitely recommend it to friends who are looking for a space to relax.

The only reason we booked C1 is because we were desperate for accommodation in Bali as it was a last minute trip. The villas are promoted as luxury villas but they are quite run down and tired. Many things do not work such as air con machines or the pool speakers. There are broken cords having out from the tv in the bathrooms and cracked walls and tiles.

The breakfast in the mornings is quite limited and to be honest, compared to other villas, it's not very good quality.

If you can afford to stay somewhere else do so as these villas are a let down. They need to have a make over and they are only a few years old!

The only thing I would say is if you want to be close to Ku De Tah and the Oberoi and are happy with a run down place as a trade off then these villas are fine and will do.
