“Best time in Bali!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

My boyfriend and I recently stayed in one of the pool villas and we were extremely pleased. Before we even left Australia we were impressed with the service. The guest experience menu was a fantastic way to personalise our trip and the communication between myself and the villa staff via email was outstanding. We even made a few phone calls if we were unsure of anything and not only were the staff willing to help us out, the outcome was always positive.

The seven days that we were in Bali were amazing thanks to not only the amazing villa we stayed in, but the amazing staff that we interacted with on a daily basis. When we arrived, we were greeted by our butler who was so kind and helpful. The in villa check in was a fantastic service to had and made arriving in Bali a smooth and comfortable process. Our butler shared tips with us about the local people, places to go and things to do while we were in Bali. He was so helpful and my boyfriend and I enjoyed interacting with him. Anything we needed, he and all the other Villa staff were more then happy to help.

There was an occasion where the tailor was going to drop my tailoring off at the villa while my partner and I were out and the reception staff were more then happy and helpful to call the tailor and organise this with him for me. I felt comfortable enough and confident to leave it in their hands while we headed out for the evening. It made it so much easier having someone help me out when it came to dealing with the tailoring due to the language barrier. We also had a three hour spa treatment which was fantastic. I loved the set up of the spa and again, the spa staff were fantastic.

The breakfast each morning in our villa was a great way to start the day. As our flight out of Bali wasn't until 11pm, we asked the reception staff if we could have a later check out and they informed us that it would not be possible as the villa was required for other guests but they would organise for us to leave our bags and provide somewhere for us to freshen up before we left. We were extremely happy with this gesture. Later that day, on our way out, we were stopped by reception and they informed us that they had organised for us to be moved into a waterfall villa on our last day and we would be able to check out at 7.30pm which is when we were being picked up for the airport. We were absolutely blown away by this kind of gesture and have never experienced such fantastic customer service.

All the staff knew our names and it made the stay that much more memorable. The only issue which we had was that the villa door would not open on about four occasions but the staff were quick to fix the problem and we didn't mind one bit. I could go on and on about Amana Villas and the fantastic staff but I would like to thank everyone at Amana for making our trip to Bali so memorable and easy. We will definitely recommend Amana to our family and friends and when we return to Bali, I'm confident that it will be our first choice in accommodation.

Once again thank you for providing us with such outstanding service and having such wonderful staff.

My partner and I had an amazing time at Amana- The villas were very sophisticated and stylish with a fantastic team that were always going above and beyond for us. The location is perfect- right next to all of the amazing restaurants and shops, you could not pick a better location! Daily breakfast was delicious with an extensive menu to pick from that your own private butler delivers each morning. We were left with surprises in our room every day! From small gifts to a 'happy anniversary' cake on the night of our anniversary- all complimentary! They also offer free drop offs to any hot spot in Seminyak and a complimentary Ipad for the duration of our stay was a great touch. We stayed at the one bedroom villa which was AMAZING- I can only imagine what the waterfall villa would have looked like! Definately returning very soon to Amana.

Room Tip: One bedroom villa is beautiful- bigger than in photos very affordable! No need for waterfall.

Amana Villas Seminyak was one of the 3 hotels for our honeymoon.

Brief description:
- It is located in Seminyak, which is supposedly the art district and has trendy cafes and shops.
- Supposedly very new (most taxi drivers should know "Red Carpet Bar" in Seminyak, which is walking distance to the hotel)
- All staff spoke English, so this is very comforting
- Breakfast was amazing!! We stayed here for 3 days. Nasi Goreng was my favorite. I think I ordered this dish twice.

Suggestion:
- Choose the waterfall villa. We had a chance to upgrade, unfortunately, all of them were booked at the time!
- If you choose the pool villa (the most economical room), you'll still like it. We stayed at the pool villa - very private and quiet.

Noticeable things:
- The A/C was only located in the bedroom, which was mildly hot in the reception room and the restroom. There are three small rooms (bedroom was decently sizeable) but they are divided by moving screens. My solution was if I was getting hot, I jump in the pool villa. Problem solved.
- Don't expect the hotel to be a huge resort. It is a hotel but I consider it a very high-end of a business hotel. Every unit has a pool (pool villa or Waterfall pool villa).
- Each unit has a butler 24/7. This means that the butler can get you the ice or etc with the comfort of not leaving your room.

Key higlights:
- Complimentary breakfast (did I mention how good it was?? I wish I got to know the chef!)
- Amazing staff
- Very trendy and modern-look from entrance to the interior of your villa
- Utilize the gym!! It doesn't have a gym facility but it grants membership to a 5-star luxurious gym facility in the area (about 20 minute-ride from hotel to the gym)

Next time, my wife and I would like to try the Waterfall Villa.

Room Tip: - Choose the Waterfall Villa. If you're not sure, choose the most economical pool villa, then up...

Amana is absolutely fantastic. It's location is in the heart of Seminayak and about 5-10 minutes to all the big super malls and kuta. The staff at Amana were so helpful, nothing was too much of an ask for them. From organiazing my new wife's 30th bday celebrations to putting a tv downstairs in our bedroom and allowing us enough privacy to lounge around the outdoor pool. The staff got the balance of helpful and privacy perfect, always being accessible without allows hanging around. The food on the menus were great, and we thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon stay there. If we return to bali we definitely know where we will be trying to stay.
Thanks again Amana

WOW...what a great time we had at Amana Villas. The 1 bedroom villa was well designed, clean and we had our own pool too...Breakfast was included in the rate and this was great. It was delivered daily by your own butler.
Eat Street was just 50m away so it was easy to access all the restaurants and bars.
This hotel is an absolute must to stay in...you will not be disappointed.

All the reviews on tripadvisor about amana villas were spot on. A truly magnificent place with an outstanding design concept. The service and friendliness of each and every staff member we encountered was wonderful. The breakfast delivered daily was delicious. Complete privacy is assured if this is what you are after. We can highly recommend the hot stone massage in the spa centre. A short walk down the lane and you have access to all the restaurants which were terrific.
The signature villa pool was absolute bliss. We could not recommend Amana Villas highly enough.
This is the perfect location for couples especially honeymooners. Highlight our trip was the horse riding through rice paddies,villages and along echo beach, all organised by Amana Villas. Thank you to all the staff, can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: Ten nights in the signature villa was worth every cent

I stayed here for 4 days for my honeymoon in November 2012 - it was a pleasure being here. We stayed at the pool villa and later were upgraded to the waterfall villa. The property is very serene and beautiful with utmost privacy provided to each villa. Staff is simply outstanding and they look after the guest in the real sense - and are totally non-intrusive; which is a delight sepecifically on a honeymoon. The services are planned keeping the customer at the centre so hardly any room to complain. The staff was very proactive and helpful when we had a bit of a misadventure with a local currency changer and helped us get our money back!

Location is very central and just right for Seminyak. And the food was better than any restuarant we went to in Seminyak; which may seem unbelievable - but is true in our experience.

Definitely a must come back place for us whenever we are back in Bali.

Dear Sachin A,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor. We are glad to hear that you appreciated the "privacy" in your villa. Being a high end luxury villa, we understand the need for guests to be left alone, and the need to be pampered at times as well.

All our villas have 3m high walls. Basically, no one can overlook into your villa - 100% privacy. As most of the villas are semi-sunken, sound insulation is extremely high, you literally cannot hear your neighboring villa even if they are blasting music. Butlers and all staff are trained to call first before entering your villa.

Regarding your compliments about our food, thank you. Very encouraging. We are not only trying to improve our quality, but also expand our menu to cater for our wide array of guests. Recently, we have just added a halal & vegetarian selection to our menu, and are working to increase our total breakfast menu from 12 options to a total of 16 or 18 options very soon.

Thank you, and we wish you all the best in the coming year.
