“Excellently run and managed private Villas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

From the minute the nice young driver (courtesy car) picked us up from the airport I had a good feeling about La Villais Exclusive Villa and Spa and I wasn’t disappointed.

On arrival we were met with smiling faces of the wonderful staff who were happy to give us complimentary cocktails and get our suitcases ready for delivery to our Villa.

We were then taken a short distance with our baggage in electric golf carts to our stunning Villa (1 bedroom) which was private and so well maintained it instantly felt like a home away from home as it was going to be for the next 2 weeks. The staff carried our bags in and then showed us all the facilities within the Villa.

Breakfast was wonderful every morning, the staff and management were brilliant and great to talk to. If you wanted something different all you had to do was ask as they had two chefs on ready to cater to your needs. We commented on how good one of their beef dishes was and it was cooked for us every morning from then on, fresh fruit was brought to our table after we had finished breakfast and an endless supply of coffee was on hand if you wanted. I advise everyone to talk to the staff as they are all wonderful people and love to interact with the guests.

The Villas bedroom and bathroom both have air conditioners which is nice to walk in to after a long day out in Bali, the pool was always clean and it was cleaned every morning. The lounge, dining and kitchens are of the standard outside type and over look the pool, Bali day bed is in your yard beside the pool and great to relax on with a drink or two.

I’d also suggest having dinner at the restaurant as the food is brilliant from the chef there, I know there are cheaper places up the road but the Chef from La Villais is a true professional and he cooks from the heart.

Also upstairs in the main lobby is a pool table if you want to have a game or two and you can order drinks there as well.

The location is great, it is about a 5 minute walk to the main shopping street of Seminyak also known as eat street for the many, many restaurants’. The beach is about a 15 minute walk but ask the staff if they will run you down to the beach in the shuttle as they were more than willing when we asked. They also run free shuttle services to Kuta, Legian and Seminyak a few times a day and were more than happy to do so.

I cannot speak more highly of the staff, from gardeners, to waiters, management to security they are all pleasant and love to have a talk or just say hello, very refreshing and extremely well managed.

We were very sad to leave the Villas after two weeks but after being let down by our next accommodation I made a call to La Villais to see if we could go back there and they were more than happy to accommodate us, so we went back for another 4 days. On our departure we were hugged and waived off by the staff and there were many tears shed by us and them.

In closing I couldn’t recommend La Villais Exclusive Villa and Spa more highly, I travel to Bali once or twice a year and always stay in Villas in the Seminyak area but from now on I will continue to return to this brilliantly run and clean fresh atmosphere of La Villais Exclusive Villa and Spa.

Nice up market 1 bedroom villa with own pool. Usual friendly and helpful Bali staff. Pool is very difficult to get in and out of. Even a ladder would have made a big difference. Room is very spacious and nothing seems to be a problem. Mattress a little hard.
Well situated, a short walk from all the restaurants on the main street of Seminyak. Not the cheapest around but very nice.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a villa close to reception, otherwise you are in a for along walk to brekky. Spa s...

I cant speak highly enough La Villais.
From the minute we got there to the minute the we left the staff were very friendly and went above and beyond in the service side of things.
Cannot recommend enough the cooking lesson with the hotels chef ,not only learnt a few cooking tips but had some great laughs.

The location is perfect for my family as close to shops and restaurants and with your own private pool we didnt even go to the beach.
I have lived in Bali before and feel the place is right at the top of its game.

My partner and I stayed for 6 nights - it was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday! The staff were always friendly and welcoming - from front desk staff to gardeners alike. We loved our single bed Villa - the room was well appointed and the day bed/outside sitting area and pool were excellent. Those who prefer soft mattresses though will probably not find the bed so comfortable (if ours was typical of those in other rooms).The privacy the Villa offered was wonderful even though it was up near reception and the restaurant. We treated ourselves to daily massages - try the hot stone massage - its fantastic! Breakfast was always enjoyable but getting a decent cup of coffee without the coffee grinds is difficult. A minor gripe but something I would seek to get sorted if I ran the place. Lunches and dinners were enjoyed at other venues - better value for money as well as variety. Would we go back? Definitely!!

Room Tip: Because of the layout of the site, rooms near reception mean less distance to walk to either recept...

Stay here for 4 nights, would have loved a couple of weeks. Staff BRILLANT, smiles from everyone....everyday! Couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast were to die for. Other guests so friendly. Service all round was impeccable. Staff very professional.
Water filter on tap for hot and cold, a stunning idea, so did not have to buy water. Loved it, loved it loved it.....

My only grudge, was the swimming pool, had one small lenght of the pool short stone step into the pool. From there you would jump in...fine for youngies, but a little hard to get out for oldies. The rough stone step also was very rough on swimwear, which either torn, or pulled all our new swim wear. we did suggest a ladder would be a great idea on our survey. Ask for a tea toel as we didn't have one. Otherwise a stunning place to stay and relax.....a short walk to restaurants and some up market shopping, and only a few dollars by taxi to go to legion, or Kuta if you wish....
All in all 10 out of 10

Amazing place to be at, especially for its price. Complimentary Airport transfers to and fro was appreciated deeply. Very friendly staff as well. We stayed at the One Bedroom Villa and totally loved it - the great room with a huge king sized bed, big spacious bathroom, inviting dining area, accessible kitchen, superb private pool with daybeds. The walk to the villa (we stayed at one almost towards the end) could be a long (for some) but otherwise a pleasant one. Location in Seminyak is great too, as its only a 5 minute walk to the main street and 15 minute walk to Kudeta and Seminyak Beach.

Can't complain about breakfast too for the price we paid, but definitely could find better breakfast options nearby if we were willing to pay. They do the pancakes and eggs for you on the spot, which is above average.

Didn't try the in-house spa/massage though, as we opted for the more highly rated ones outside of the villa e.g. Jari Menari.

Overall, an amazing place to stay at in Bali. I'd just say it's pretty much a "No-Brainer" in terms of our next accommodation choice for future trips to Bali.

Room Tip: We got a villa almost at the end (C33) and it was quiet and peaceful.

This is review is way outdated! Stay in this villa in May 2011. They provide free airport transfer for us to and fro. We were greeted at the reception area, followed by a welcome drink for everyone.

We booked a 2bedroom villa but was given a 3bedroom instead, as we were arriving as 2 couples. Only the 3bedroom villa has 2 rooms with King Size bed. Very thoughtful of them! Upon reaching the villa, I was impressed by how clean and new it was. There was only one 3bedroom villa and it was at the very end. But we are not complaining. There's a kitchen and we manage to cook supper on certain nights with the food we bought at supermarket.

They attend to our request very quickly each time we ask for something. Rooms always clean up each time we left the villa.

Location was ok. Restaurants & eateries is only 5-7mins walk away. Right outside this villa, there is a little cafe. We took dinner and breakfast there on certain days.

The beach is a good 15-20mins walk away. We walk to the beach but find it tiring to walk back after surfing for the afternoon.

I love this place as the surrounding wasn't too commercialize.

The only cons was the breakfast. I only had breakfast on the 1st morning and for the rest of the days, I had breakfast at the cafe right outside the villa. So it was not a problem for me.

This will still be my top choice if I were to visit to Bali again!
