“"A lovely villa come with a lovely service"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Pure Perfection..... What else can I say!!

From arrival to departure of this flawless villa, there are no words to describe our experience apart from amazing and perfect.

First and foremost the staff are what make this villa an unforgettable memory.

Villa Des Indes has been completed to a very high 5-Star standard, the accommodation is spacious, immaculate and has a home away from home feel, and the additional bonus is your huge swimming pool.
You can have breakfast whatever time of day suits you, the menu is so extensive and you can have as many dishes as you desire. The food is sublime; there is a very high standard of chefs and staff employed within this villa, which makes your dining experience regardless of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner an absolute delight and pleasure.
You are left to your own desires throughout your stay and nothing is too much trouble for the staff, we spent the majority of the time with the staff chatting and laughing, we miss them dreadfully and think about them regularly along with the lovely Manager Komang , who is an absolute gentleman, it was lovely to discover that he treats the staff like family which is reassuring to know!
The service staff at the villa are impeccable, nothing is too much trouble and things seem to get done quickly and efficiently. Near to the hotel there are some very good restaurants and nice boutique shops amongst the regular shops. This is the most fantastic place to stay, we will certainly be going back!

Des Indes fared above our expectations on all accounts and simply created a WOW on some of the parameters.
We stayed there for 5 nights, booking the complete villa for a family get together in Bali in March.
1) Location of Des Indes is indeed a Wow! Located at minutes walk to buzzy lounge bars like Potato head, Kudeta, Italian restaurant La Lucciola, the famous and reliable spa, Bodyworks, Des Indes places you walking distance to all cool and happening places in Seminiyak.
2) Service and the attitude of staff is the second Wow! From the time you arrive to the time you bid adieu to the villa, the staff builds a beautiful bond with you and you actually feel as if you are leaving your house members behind whom you would like to see again soon.
3) Spacious rooms, open air shower areas, bar create small Wows too
4) Breakfast - good quality but not too much choice, You won't notice that in a smaller stay though
5) Pool - Acceptable but could be maintained cleaner

Overall, a great experience. Definitely going to check availability before I make a stay plan in Seminiyak next.

You walk thru the gates and it is another world -- beautiful, luxurious, calming, and wonderful. The owner has a great eye for detail, aesthetic balance, Indonesian sculptures, and world class comfort. This is not just another luxury Bali villa rental but a villa that the owner has put lots of energy, thought and time to create something very special. The 24/7 villa staff have been trained by them and are thoughtful and welcoming. If you are a stressed out workaholic and do not want to deal with anything annoying, Villa Des Indes delivers everything and more. Just ask Komang Weda the Villa manager to arrange for a massage in the outdoor courtyard for complete relaxation.
Every amenity within the private walls of this elegant villa makes you feel like privilege royalty while the tranquil and beautiful surroundings remind you at each turn that you've been transported to one of the most special settings on earth. Only 5 minutes walking of the beautiful beaches in Seminyak, combined with all of the other exciting things you can do - from whitewater rafting and elephant trekking to surfing and antiquing - enables Villa Des Indes to offer the best of both worlds: pampered elegance and exotic adventure. The Balinese people are one of the nicest, welcoming and peaceful people and the island's history and rich variety of offerings make it a fascinating destination. Experience the magic of Bali at Villa Des Indes and you may never want to leave!! .Thank you to all of the staff and specially to Komang who already trained them very well.

We have visited Seminyak for so many years and this is by far the best Villa we have stayed at for comfort, location and beautiful hospitality. Perfectly located in Seminyak amongst everything you'll need. So many restaurants nearby. Motel Mexicola is literally around the corner, Fun night had there and MM Management were wonderful. Breeze restaurant at the Samaya is just across the road from the entrance driveway. Kudeta is walking distance. So is Potatohead Beach Club, or a 2 minute drive away. Dozens more restaurants within walking distance. Gorgeous new little ice cream shop around the corner and lots of little boutiques also a short stroll away. Grocer and Grind and Seminyak square await you at the other end of the driveway/lane way. As I said PERFECT LOCATION!
We will definitely be coming back to Villa Des Indes. The staff are there for your every needs. ALWAYS on hand to look after you. There really is no need to do any grocery shopping either. The 8 of us stayed for 6 days, drank soft drinks and Bintangs day and night, a constant flow of beverages being served, a few days we stayed in the villa for our chef prepared lunches, dinner and invited other friends over for lunch also....
The bedrooms are spacious, beautiful and soooo comfortable and the ensuites are divine. Choices of pillows too.
So if you're searching for somewhere to stay in Seminyak do not hesitate in booking Villa Des Indes... You will be glad that you did and I have no doubt you will continue to recommend to your own friends.

My husband and I stayed 5 nights in Villa Des Indes for our five year anniversary. We were blown away with the villa. The joglo was an amazing centre piece to spend most our time eating and relaxing by the pool. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable, the staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable and anything we required, whether it be a reservation at a recommended restaurant or a driver to show us the sights, was easily and promptly arranged. I found myself struggling with the fact we only had five days in Bali and with such beautiful and peaceful surrounds I did not want to leave the villa, but at the same time I could not come to Bali without seeing a little of the island. I especially loved that every time we were to return to the villa we were welcomed with a cold, wet towel to cool our face. I would recommend the villa to any one. I hope to come back one day with my family, it will be a holiday to remember.

This villa is unique in that it is a bit like the owners house where he just adds some more antiques every time he collects them! There are 4 villas actually in one enclosure and all extremely private. I walked into the very spacious bathroom and there was an old cabinet which took my attention. As I opened the lid I discovered it was an old gramophone player, amazing!

Ideal for families who want to get away from it all and the feel is a mix between classic mature and modern with lots of wooden walls and floors.

Staff are excellent and call you by name as soon as you arrive. They could not be more helpful and spent a lot of time making sure my daughter was being spoiled. The only thing was the noisy floorboards in the villa but all part of the traditional feel. A great place to stay and a great location with the beach accessible just across the street.

Room Tip: Choose the villa with the tiled floor if you think the floorboards creaking will annoy you.
