“4 star villa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Excellent 4 star villa, from airport pickup service, check in and buttler service. The location is near Ultimo, Mykonos, etc. WIFI is excellent. The pool is bigger than decent 1 room bedroom villa. The villa'ambience is better at night.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

My husband and stayed at Ziva for 13nights in October - I booked Ziva because of the reviews I read on Tripadvisor.

Maybe our standards are high, but we were extremely disappointed.

We were offered the honeymoon package, which included massages, 1 lunch, 1 dinner, 1 day trip. 1 free mini bar set up on arrival ie 1 beer and 1 softdrink and of course breakfast cooked in the villa every morning.

The language was hit and miss as well, depending who was on as to what the level of communication was.

Let me start with the villa, it is extremely tired. The furniture is chipped, the curtains are filthy the mainainence in general is very poor. The fools are extremely slippery and my husband had two falls while we were there.

If you wanted tea or coffee you needed to go to the out door kitchen as there are no facilities inside the villa.

The level of cleaning is pretty bad, there were even cobwebs and spiders eggs under the bedhead.

You get 2 small towels for drying yourself after your shower, 2 black towels for the pool and 2 hand towels and bath mats. There are no fash washers, don't know if this is an Indonesian thing.

Breakfast was pretty ordinary, and it certainly wasn't cooked by a chef. They also wouldn't let you have western food with asian food. Everything was portion controlled. Quire often they forgot things that we had ordered and the juices were delivered warm.

The lunch was of the same calibre as the breakfast. The dinner was ok and only made pleasant by the candles and the rose petal heart in the pool.

The massages were done in the room on the bed and the lounge and not on massage tables outside on the decking as picture. This was extremely uncomfortable for both myself and my husband.

The day trip that was included in the package wasn't an organised one. The had had a driver who didn't know what he was doing. While the have several tours listed in their book he didn't have a clue. The also have no brochures for guests to look at so they know where they want to go.

Even though they offered free transport within Seminyak this was done under sufferance and in the end we just organised our own cabs.

We had to keep asking for glasses to drink out of as all they had in the villa were wine glasses. The glasses were always removed when they did the house keeping and we had to keep asking for them to bring them back. We also had to continally ask for ice. These things should be a given in any hotel.

The soft drink and beer that was supposed to be complimentary we never received and to add insult to injury after giving us our bill they then gave us a separate one for a beer and a bottle of water. I might add we also left in the villa 1/2 a bottle of Gin, 3 beers and 2 tonic waters.

Were we happy? No.
Would we recommend? No
Would we go back again? No

We paid $4199 USD for 13nights. They are laughing and we are left feeling totally disappointed.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Ziva Villa for 5 nights in June and absolutely loved it. The open plan modern villa is pretty big with wall to ceiling windows on all four sides. We found the lounge area handy for relaxing and reading when we wanted respite from lying in the sun by the pool. Outside is a separate kitchen and dining pavilion where meals are served, outdoor bathroom with a sunken bath and large wardrobe. We spent many hours in the pool that runs the entire length of the villa and is large enough to swim laps.

Would like to see the addition of luggage racks as there was nowhere to put them. The spa treatments are served in your villa, which was fine for my facial but my husband found his massage done on the bed uncomfortable. Unlike other reviewers we never heard any traffic and the street the villa is located on isn’t very busy. The food is fine but there are many great places close by worth visiting.

We can highly recommend Ziva Villa and we’ll definitely stay there again.

We booked the place with the honeymoon package, so basically we got free 1.5hrs massage, free candle light dinner, breakfast at ur place, and other stuff. The place was so AMAZING with private pool next to ur bedroom, and they even covered the bath tub with flowers.

However, the massage service was very poor, and they served terrible food at candle light dinner and breakfast.. the food is definitely not 5-star quality. And i still can hear the sound of motorbike, car, and people talking from outside our villa, so it's not so private, but still tolerable though.

Restaurant tips: You dont have to worry finding good restaurants and cafes. You can reach them within 5-10 minutes walk. Eg. Rumours, Ultimo, Trattoria, Mykonos, etc

This private villa comes with a pool, kitchen, nice garden and a huge bathroom (outdoor). This is by far the best accomodation i stayed in throughout all my holidays. There are only 7 villa in this hotel so you will have alot of privacy. The service you get here is 5-star. We tried the in-room massage and the in-room dining which were excellent as well. It was a wonderful experience and will come back again.

First time I stepped to this villa. I'm a bit dissapointed and thought I choose a wrong villa for good time relaxtion accomodation. Because a design of a front desk a bit to simple and old. Plus they didn't served a welcome drink when we waited for a check in process. I WAS WRONG, they did gave us a welcome drink inside our villa when they showed us our villa. The villa itself was amazing and clean. Each villa got a big swimming pool as well not like other villa that I ever stayed before. The foods not a 5 stars but not bad. Customer service was great without any fault. Highly recommended.

This place is amazing! We have stayed at a lot of nice places over the years, but nothing compares to our room at the Ziva Boutique Hotel. Each room is a private courtyard with trees, plants, swimming pool, outdoor kitchen, and the bedroom suite. The private pool wraps around the glass-encase room. You step from your bed right into the swimming pool.

Each bathroom has a double-wide tube that fits two people. The rooms look like a modern Manhattan apartment, but in a tropical setting with a pool. The place was so nice that my wife chose not to leave our courtyard the first day. It is so much nicer to relax within the your private villa.

There are only 7 villas. Our room was spotlessly clean. The staff is large (like most businesses in Bali) and all are very friendly and accommodating. They come each morning to cook a private breakfast in your outdoor kitchen.

From the hotel, it is an easy walk to all of the Seymenak shops.

We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Ziva Villa.

Room Tip: We were in room 1 and it was perfect!
