“Home away from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2010

Wonderful villas conveniently located in Seminyak on a quiet and friendly little street. My wife and I enjoyed our walk every morning around the area. Not a lot of dogs and everyone you meet on the way is incredibly friendly, just avoid the guys with the hotel voucher things, they are annoying.

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful as was John the owner. We arrived late in the evening and I was very worried about making reservations on the internet, especially since I was making them from overseas in the states and had heard horror stories in the past, but John was very patient with me and reassuring. Everything was perfect when we arrived and the Bali Yarravillas were the perfect place for us to get settled into the pace of the island before we left to go stay with friends in Sukawati for the rest of our trip.

The Bintang supermarket is right around the corner as is the great cafe seminyak which we ate at a bunch. Lots of great places to go to within walking distance and my wife and I will definetly be coming here to stay in the future. Thanks again John and all the guys at Bali Yarravillas, Suksma!!

My new wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and with this being our first time in Bali we were prepared for a culture shock, this was not the case.
The staff at Bali Yarravillas were excellent but a special mention must go out to Putu, nothing was too much trouble for the man. Directions to the beach, organising tours to Ubud, advising on the best restaurants and keeping the fridge stocked full of Bintang was all done with ease.
The hotel itself was breathtaking and our room was spotless every time we returned from exploring Bali. There is not much more that I can say that has not already been stated in previous reviews and it is all very true.
One thing that I feel that I should mention is that this is the only hotel that I have stayed at where the mini bar prices are actually cheaper than the local supermarket, a pleasant surprise that I took full advantage of.
Thank you John and all the staff for a wonderful holiday that we will cherish forever. We are already planning our next visit and I can’t wait to bring our friends to experience this fantastic Balinese hotel.

These villas are everything and more. This is our first time staying in Villa accommodation and after this experience we will be doing this on every visit to Bali from now on. These Villas in particular are in such a great location and so lovely and quiet. The staff were very friendly and attentive.
Bali Yarra Villas was so fantastic my now fiancé decided it was the perfect location to ask me to marry him by the pool :)
Beers are so cheap and cold! no need to buy any from the shops
HUGE Thank you to Putu and staff for making this a great holiday.
Very Highly recommend this accommodation for those who wish to enjoy a relaxing, stress free and quiet holiday in Bali

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment for two nights. It was absolutely lovely! The apartment is modern, clean and well equipped. We especially love the outdoor style bathroom. The pool is just a few steps away from the door and we almost had it all to ourselves when we used it. We just thought that the apartment was a little dim, but that's not a big issue at all. Prices of the mini bar were very reasonable. The staff were very friendly and helpful as well. The advantage of a small establishment is that the staff actually remembers you and which villa you stay in, which gives a sense of familiarity and security. Located on the back of the main road, the location was perfect for us. Away from the noise of the traffic on the main road, but close enough to get to the action. The beach isn't that far either, about a 10 min walk through the smaller lanes. All in all, we loved this place and will definitely recommend it!

It was our 1st time at bali (5 days 4 nights), and we are so glad that we've choose to stay at Bali Yarravillas.

There were only two of us, after checking the availability online, we were abit bumed to discover that only 2 nights of the one bedroom villa was available during late sep to early oct. We contacted the owner (John) to see what he could do. He suggested that since the two bedroom villa was still available at the time, we could have it at the price of the one bedroom villa for 2 nights (with the other bedroom locked) and the other 2 nights at the 1 bedroom villa, we were happy with his idea and confirmed him with our details.

We were really happy with our stay, the villa was very clean and frequently serviced by Putu and the boys , whenever we left the villa, we would come back to find our bed made, and even my boyfriend's t-shirts (at which he just left them lying on the sofa) were all folded up nicely. The mini bar was frequently refilled and the price were actually fairly reasonable. Wifi was provided free of charge, cable tv had a lot of channels to choose from and ipod docking is also available if you feel like listening to your own songs!
The pool is conveniently located, just one step away from each villa, though not a big pool, it was still big enough to share among the 4 villa. Actually, most of the time we had the pool to ourselves during our stay!

However, one downside is that even with a map (provided kindly by John via the confirmation email), it was still quite hard for us first timers (and even the bali taxi drivers) to locate the villa. We had to trial and error in and out of a couple of places under the bali hot weather before we could finally locate where the villa actually is as there are no signs on the main road. For those who plan to book this place, please tell the taxi driver it is by the Bintang @ Seminyak down the alley to Sienna Villa and on the left. John, if you are reading this, it would be a good idea to put a big sign on the main road :)

other then this minor issue, this villa is still HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We will definitely be back again!! 5 star!!

Thanks heaps for your review, it was great, we always appreciate our guests taking the time to write a review after they return home as it is really easy to slip back into work mode. We did have a sign out the front it was damaged by a vehicle, we are currently negotiating to have a more prominent sign made and installed. As you can imagine things move slowly in Bali but rest assured we are working on it, that is why I email everyone our map.
Kind regards John

We stayed at Bali Yarravillas for only 2 nights, at the end of our 2 week holiday. It's beautiful. We stayed in the smallest room as we were flying out late in the evening and just wanted a place to put our bags while shopping or lying by the pool.

The room that we stayed in is very well designed and the fit out is immaculate. The pool area is gorgeous. The staff are excellent and I have recommended this place to everyone I have met since returning home!

Well done John for creating such a lovely, elegant, welcoming place to stay, and thank you for your follow-up email.
