“Wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

1. Cleanliness
The villa is really clean and comfortable. As earlier reviews mentioned, the staff clears the room everyday.

2. Location
It's not near seminyak square and popular places like kudeta, potato head and bodyworks. All are about 30-40mins drive away. However, right outside the villa (3mins walk away), u get a clean massage parlour call spa yasmin and bintang supermarket. Also, u get cafe seminyak and Mades Wurung is jus 10mins walk away. There are plenty of surf shops jus outside the villa. Billabong, ripcurl etc.
However, the villa is located at a back alley (most of the villas in seminyak are located in tiny alleys anyway), one may wanna use a torch at night when walking back.

3. Service.
I cant ask for better service.
Special thanks to Andre the villa Manager and Ketut, our driver. I fell sick with food poisoning on day 2 and the staff immediately informed Andre who came down to check on me, together with Ketut, they drove me to the international clinic at seminyak square. Not only that, despite their busy schedule, they stayed on for another 15mins to ensure all things are ok before heading off to pick up other arriving customer at the airport. This may not mean anything to them, but for a tourist in a foreign land, the gesture really really touched me. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andre and team for the wonderful service!!

My fiancé and I stayed at baliyarravillas for 4 nights. At first I was a little hesitant due to the price, but I am so thankful we decided to stay at baliyarravillas. The location is great! Right next to the bingtang supermarket and a short cab ride to most places of interest. The villa is spacious, extremely clean and the villa grounds are up kept extremely well by staff. In my option baliyarravillas is very lucky to have such wonderful staff, especially Andre and ketut. Who catered to your every need with a smile. I would recommend this villa to anyone and I know where we will be staying on our next trip to Bali. Well done baliyarravillas and staff!!

Having stayed many times in Bali this is the cleanest and the best beds in Bali..! ( Quality beds, Linen and towels ) Staff are all friendly and work as a team willing to assist. All Villas have small clean kitchen with all that is required, but confess with so many restaurants in walking distance did not use.
Located 3 minutes walk behind Bintan supermarket.

As a family we have travelled to Bali many times in over 20 years. This was the first time we have stayed in Seminyak and we are very happy that we chose Bali Yarravillas, as it states it is the cleanest best maintained property in Bali, we agree. The property is immaculate in its presentation and a credit to the Management and Staff. Since returning home we have been telling all our family and friends. Keep up the good work, guys. BTW the restaurant reviews were super as it took all the guesswork from dining. Thanks to John, Andre and the boys at Bali Yarravillas we will be back in June, will book next week to make sure we get in. See you all then.
Forgot about the beds, wow most comfortable we have ever slept in.
Cheers Dougie and Anne

Our first stay at these villas. Travelling to Bali with Jim and Heather over many years we have stayed at a lot of different types of accommodation. The quality has varied greatly. The last few years we have focussed on Villas. Yarravillas to date are the best. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back. Excellent staff who make things very easy.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs and visit the toilet a lot, Room 2 isn't for you

This is our 2nd Review of Bali Yarravillas. We have actually just returned from Bali and once again we stayed at Bali Yarravillas. We were also at Bali Yarravillas in April for a Wedding in Legian, and we were pleased to see street lights in the Gang Keraton which made our walk at night just that little bit safer, and we were informed that it was John Westbury's initiatives. We were even more pleased when we arrived on the 10th November that the road had been paved which made it easier for everyone to walk on and for cars to have a smooth ride and not to always have to avoid pot-holes. As for Bali Yarravillas itself we loved staying there and we kept coming back simply because not only where it is located, away from the hustle-bustle of Jalan Raya Seminyak, the Apartments are always beautifully kept, clean, comfortable and as John wisely said a "Home away from Home". An accommodation such as Bali Yarravillas will be if not already a sought after accommodation if continually professionally maintained just the way it has been maintained by caring office new staff member Andre, Ketut the Bali Yarravillas' competent, friendly smiling staff who drive us to/from the airport safely and of course there are 6 other firendly staff members (Wayan, Nengah, Gede, Budi, Agung and Adi) who clean our bedroom, maintained the garden and the ever inviting cool pool. These guys are not only friendly but also concerned for our safety while we were in their care. At night there is always a staff member on duty and the big gate after a certain time is locked till the morning. Every morning at about 6am we like to walk to the market and we just let the staff know of our intention at the beginning of our stay. We enjoyed our stay every time. We are of course grateful to John and Gloria Westbury for welcoming us back for the fourth time to their beautiful villas. WE'LL BE BACK!
