We never had the chance to explore the local area on foot but getting a cab was never a problem and it was a very short drive to anywhere in Seminyak.
What we really appreciate about Ziva was the total seclusion and sense of serenity we felt the entire time we were there. It is a complex of around 7 villas and we never encountered any other guests so we were very surprised to learn that all of the villas were booked while we were there.
The air conditioned living area/bedroom is tastefully furnished and large in area. There is a sliding door to the pool from the bedroom so you can literally roll out of bed and straight into the pool. The pool is a very generous size ( more than double the size of the pools at Pradha and Aria Villas). The shower in the outdoor bathroom has excellent water pressure too.
Breakfast was the standard breakfast seemingly served at all the villas in Bali. Staff at the front desk spoke good English and were very helpful in assisting us in making restaurant and spa reservations and getting us a taxi.
I highly recommend this villa for couples wanting a boutique and designer villa that is in an excellent location offering total privacy.
