“Amazing. Just Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We booked a 2 bedroom villa via GroupOn and were wowed by this place. So how was it? Fabulous!

Location: You can walk to the main shopping area (about 10 minutes) but it's so damn hot, it's easier to to get a cab or the resort's mini bus (if available). A cab ride shouldn't be more than 50,000 rupiah (about AU$4.50).
Everything is close - KuDeTa, PotatoHead, restaurants (highly recommend the new restaurant upstairs at KuDeTa - I've eaten at hatted restaurants and the food here is of that standard), shopping, day spas (go to Bodyworks - spent 4 hours there on day 1 and it set me up for the rest of the holiday!).

Staff: Again, wonderful. From the breakfasts to the reception supplying my husband with sunburn cream. Friendly and lovely.

Villa: see the photos :) Absolutely no complaints. It was quiet yet close to everything. The staff even brought us through some pool floaties - a little boat and a froggy! And we have no kids! If I'm going to be super picky, the air con could do with replacing. It wasn't quite cold enough. But that's it. I can't think of a single other thing. It's all very private with high walls around each villa.

The pool was heaven to jump into after a day out in the heat.

We had 5 nights here but wished we'd booked longer!

Room Tip: Peeking through the doors of villas on our way through, they all look amazing. You'd be hard pre...

Loved it, loved it, loved it. Can't say enough good things about Chandra. Villas were massive, immaculately clean, gorgeous outdoor bathrooms, wonderful staff, great location, super-comfortable beds...the list goes on. Was hesitant to write this review as we don't want to the place to be booked out next year when we go! Thanks for a very memorable stay.

I was part of a group of 6 friends and we stayed at the Chandra Villas for 6days in early February. We bought a voucher off Groupon and were unsure of what sort of quality the villas would be. All of us were shocked at the amazing villa we received! We stayed in Villa 8 and would recommend it to all of our friends and family. We spent our days by the beautiful pool and strolling down the road for shopping or massages. The staff are very helpful and are happy to organise outings and dinners for you. On our first day we had alot of trouble with the wifi, but a technician fixed this within 2hrs and we had no problems after that. The only negative comment I have is the hot water. All of our showers had little to no hot water for the entirety of our stay,The temperature was only a few degrees warmer than the pool temperature. Aside from that minor flaw, the Chandra made our trip to Bali, we could not have asked for a better place to stay!

Room Tip: If you want a great 3 bedroom villa 8 is spacious, modern and luxurious.

This was our firts time to Bali and our stay in the Villa was fantastic we stayed in 3A clean, spacious and loved our Evi who did our cooking and cleaning would def stay there again.

I cannot speak more highly of this accommodation!! We were a party of 4 (2 couples) and we stayed in Villa 2B and it was just amazing. We stayed for 10 days and from start to finish it was top notch service and luxury. Yes the villas are Balinese style with dark timber and open living, but it certainly added to the charm. The photos on the Hotels8 website are exactly as the villas are. There is certainly no misrepresentation. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, nothing was ever too hard for them. We were there over Christmas and New Years (peak season) and they accommodated for anything we needed. Special mention must go to Ani (during our stay) and Sari (during the booking process) and Evi who looked after the housekeeping of our villa. These girls (and all your staff) are an absolute asset to your business, Chandra Villas. You have done well and I will be recommending this place to all my friends that want luxury villa style living.

A couple of points:
* Pool is amazing with a bale and 2 day beds. The pool is cleaned every day and it gets a lot of sun.
* There are mozzies in the evening, but the team will put out coils religiously and spray your room. If you are spending your evenings in the lounge, just put a bit more repellent on.
* Indoor/outdoor bathrooms - these are certainly not as bad as I thought. It actually helps the air flow in what is usually a humid environment. Bugs and creepies are not a big issue at all.
* The villa was well maintained for its age. Very clean and pleasant.
* Water cooler is provided so you never have to buy water. So much better than just 2 complementary bottles a day like in most hotels
* The surrounding grounds are immaculate, and I believe this contributes to lack of bugs and unwanted visitors.
* Security is amazing, I never felt unsafe in the area, and also walked home (2 girls) on our own at 2am. Security everywhere.
* The complimentary driver (into Seminyak) service was really good. Yes it is not available all the time, but if you plan ahead with the front desk, it usually works out.
* Location is just amazing. You can walk to all the restaurants and bars. We rarely took a cab in the whole 5 days we were there.
* We didn't have children, but I would recommend this place for people with kids for sure. It's easy, safe and accommodating.

Final word: I must admit the cost of this place nearly put me off, but I am so glad we paid the extra for it. It was no fuss and relaxing; exactly what a holiday should be. And if I were to add up all the extra cost I would have paid in buying water, cabs and breaky..... I think it nearly makes up for the extra cost.

Room Tip: Be aware that one of the villas is privately own and having had dealings with the guy, I say stay aw...

Be careful. There are 2 owners websites that advertise this property. One owns villa no 2 ONLY, the other owns all the others in the complex. Its very hard to tell the difference as Villa no 2 does not state anywhere in their website that they are only that villa. The layout and fit out and size is very different. Much cleaner, more modern and has a media (movie watching) room great for the kids. We were in Villa 5 and got a rude shock having seen the light fresh modern photos of villa 2. We were expecting the quality of villa 2. The other villas are dark timber and more traditional and not as well maintained. Overall fine but not what we had paid for unfortunately

The staff who service the room and serve breakfast are fantastic and the breakfast is MASSIVE and great value. We ordered the fruit platter and saved it for morning tea each day. Also worth noting that getting sick in Bali is very common, but we never got sick from any food served at the villa. Very clean. They also have a big cold purified water dispenser in your villa so clean water is always available.

They only change the sheets if you ask them to. They will serve complimentary afternoon tea (again- only if you ask) and the free wi-fi wasn't available most days in our villa. The complimentary driver to take you into town on those hot or rainy days is also often not available.

If you want to be in a cocoon in your villa only emerging for a massage or pedicure....or the flea markets (at the end of the street) you will be happy with the Chandra.

Also just opened at the end of the street is "Town house" NY style food with fine dining due to open soon along with its own night club.

Room Tip: Check EXACTLY what villa you have. No 1 means close to reception so not far to walk. May have more n...

ChandraManagement, Chandra Management at Chandra Luxury Villas Bali, responded to this review, January 13, 2014
Dear Tara R,

Thank you for taking the time after your stay at Chandra Luxury Villas, to write a review about your accommodation experience.

We are very sorry you were not completely satisfied during your stay.
Chandra 2 is privately managed by its owner and it is located within Chandra Bali Villas by 8hotels complex. While Chandra 2 has a modern style, Chandra Bali Villas is more touch of Balinese traditional style. We recommend our guests to contact Chandra directly upon booking via third party so guests can book the appropriate villa.

Our maintenance program catches the majority of issues requiring resolution - and we attend to them quickly. If you think we have missed something, please bring it to our attention during your stay and we will do our best to address it.

Thank you for all your positive remarks about Chandra’s staff and the breakfast served in the villa every morning, these are greatly appreciated.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon to Chandra Luxury Villas Bali..
