My wife and I stayed at the Seiryu Villas in Seminyak Bali for our honeymoon for 6 nights.
The saddest part of the trip was checking out. We had such an amazing time at the Villas. It really made our honeymoon experience much much more enjoyable.
The Villa is located in the Seminyak area of Bali. Perfect location for honeymooners and for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta. This is a popular location to stay for most newly weds as there are many nice restaurants, boutiques, shops, etc around the area within walking distance. The nearest beach (Seminyak Beach) is no more than a 10 min walk away. The beauty of its location is that everything is in easy reach, eg (K Mart, 24 hour convenience store = 5 mins walk) or (Beauty Spa Salons/Hairdressers = 10 min walk). Also when in the villa it is extremely quiet and peaceful, day or night.
A little bit about the hotel location in regards to the nearest beach as I know this was a concern for me when I was researching where to book. I did alot of research looking for the right villa in the right location before I booked this one. My concern was that it was going to be too far from the beach and that we would have to take a taxi there everytime. Although the villa is not right on the beach it is easy to walk to and because we had a private pool, we did not want go to the beach everyday. Furthermore there are several beaches around Bali in different areas therefore it is not neccasary to go for a beach villa as you will want to visit them all.
On our arrival to Bali, the airport immigration took over 2 hours. I believe the seiryu villas offer an express airport service for a small fee where by they can get things moving much quicker at the airport. We did not take this option as we didnt think it would take as long as it did however we will next time we go back. Furthermore, even though it took so long at the airport, our driver was still waiting outside who greeted us and gave us fresh cold towels and a bottle of water. Just what you need to cool you down.
Upon arrival to the Seiryu, all the staff one by one greeted us and introduced themselves to us. Before you even get into the reception area, you cant help but notice the fine attention to detail on almost everything. If you appreciate interior decore and contemporary designs then you will love The Seiryu. We also received a welcome drink each on arrival.
We stayed in Villa B4. The villa was apsolutely stunning, mind blowing and very spacious. The villa was specially decorated for us as we selected the honeymoon package which included candles lit inside and out, flower petals in the bath tub and on our extra large king size bed plus a honeymoon cake. We had our own private pool which was amazing, a day bed, deck chairs and a garden shower. (Without sounding too corny, it was really romantic taking a shower with the stars and moon light above) It made us not want to leave our villa. The living room was very spacious with a large sofa and flat screen tv and dvd. The kitchen had everything you need to make a nice home cooked meal. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi bath tub and shower with many amenities including a safe for your valuables.
As part of the honeymoon package we also received 1x spa session at a very upscale place and candle lit dinner in the privacy of our own garden. The villa does not have their own restaurant therefore the breakfast was delivered to our room each morning. We had a choice of American, Continental, Japanese/Chinese and Indonesian breakfast. Note for vegitarian food we did struggle a little in Bali.
In regards to the service we received at the Seiryu Villas, it was second to none. We really felt like VIP guests at the Seiryu. Anything we asked for was delivered within minutes and the hotel staff went out their way to make sure we had everything we need. The staff were all genuine, polite and friendly. I think as a whole, people in Bali are very polite and respectful of each other. Even when we checked out all the staff came out side to say fare-well.
The area is very safe even if your walking down a quiet road in the early hours of the morning. Near by there are several bars/clubs one of which called Ku De Ta which was the number 1 club in the area. There is a restaurant next door to the hotel called Sorriso which served excellent Italian food. Also we hired a scooter while we were out in Bali and never having driven one before, I got the hang of it quite easily. It is fairly safe to drive around Bali although the blue taxi's are very cheap if your not so confident driving in another country.
Overall we would rate The Seiryu Villas as a 5 star. * * * * *
I have promised my wife we would go back in a few years as we had such an amazing time in Bali and I would not stay anywhere else other than The Seiryu Villas.
We recomend it to everyone and were very very happy with our stay.
