“King for a week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The experience my family received from o villas from the time we got picked up to getting dropped of and everything in between truly made us feel like ROYALTY for our entire duration. Where do I start the staff are always available and no task was to hard or a inconvenience and actually felt like family by the time we left and trust any of them with our kids. The villa itself is only believed once you see it cause photos do not do it justice so spacious and new it contributed to making our stay that so much more relaxing where a hotel or resort could not achieve with kids. The breakfast is cooked right in front of you and your able to order what you want to our regret we should of had the villa cook us more meals , cheap and taste was beautiful even try to get Putu to make u chilli crab best ever had. The villa staff where always on hand to drive us for quick trips our day trips and enough cars for big groups. Over all it was the best holiday experience ever had count the days to our next visit for this every day joe to feel like a king again , O villas thank you

Room Tip: Villa 3 closer to staff & more sunnier

Hello Christina, Thanks for your great review.

We have had several comments about our pictures do not give the Villas justice with regards the space you have, we are getting more published at the moment, fingers crossed it will give potential clients a better idea of how big they really are, which defiantly makes the whole place more relaxing, especially with the children.

I keep hearing about our General Manager's Chilli Crabs, and i have still not experienced them myself, i think i am going to have a word with him when i am there next ! It would be great to see you there again soon. Thanks again.

We have been to Bali many times, but our stay in O Villas was second to none. Having three small children in a hotel room is not always relaxing, but the experience at O Villa was very enjoyable as the villa was massive with plenty of room for the kids to run around and was good value for money. We loved the pool & spent most of our stay in it, but the living area was great also with a big comfy couch, big flat screen & also a projector screen great for movies. We did our homework & found most places were open air living & didn't have an option to close doors (to keep out mozzies & heat) where as o villas gave us the both options. The service we received was absolutely first class. Staff kept the villa spotless, every meal was fantastic and we regret not eating in the villa more often as compared to restaurants it was much cheaper. Putu's chilli crab he made us on our last day was the best we've had! The staff were always on hand to drive us where ever we needed and even have good scooters to hire. Overall our stay at O Villas was fun & relaxing - i didnt lift a finger- and will become an annual trip each October for us & our extended family. Thanks to Putu, Richard, kadeh & Ketut, we'll see you again soon!!

Hi Basil

Thanks very much for this fantastic review. The size of the Villas does make a big difference, i can leave the kids to do what they want, and still relax ! It is a good point about being able to close all the living/dining room doors, i get paranoid about the mozzies, and we have ensured all the staff are aware of the western fear of them as well and really look after the grounds and Villas. Our General Manager Putu, is a man of many talents, which sounds like you experienced one them! They are a great team and they love repeat business and look forward to seeing you up there again soon. Thanks again.

What a pleasant and awesome experience staying at the O Villa's in Seminyak. The staff and service are absolutely first rate and you really felt you were pampred in whatever you did at the Villa's. Also their knowledge of things to do both historically and culturally was very good. Whenever you needed something it was always yes yes yes.
Breakfast in the morning was always welcome after a good night out and Richard and hs staff always did a great job much appreciated.
As for getting around Seminyak the drivers (Kadet and Kedah) were always very helpful and made the time a little more memorable by not having to worry.
Definately will be going back to O Villa's in the near future.

Thanks for you kind comments Warren. I find our staff are very proud of the Villas and Bali and just love talking to guests about where to go and what to see, and like you say their knowledge is second to none. Hopefully see you there again soon.

Wow, absolutely stunning villas, the best staff in Bali, our every need attended to and more. Massive private pool, great library of movies once the kids were in bed, lovely marble bathrooms, amazing ceilings in the upstairs rooms, fantastic food and amazing value for money, I can't recommend O villas enough. Dazza !

Hello "'Dazza"" thanks for the great comments !!

Although i am bias as i am one of the owners, i just have to agree with everything you have said!!

It's just a great place to kick back and relax for the whole family, ,which is just what our aim was when we started the project.

I will pass your comments on to the staff and hopefully see you back at O Villas again shortly.

I recently spent a week at O villas with my husband and two children aged 13 & 11. This was our first time in Bali, we were met at the airport by the lovely Kadeh with a cold towel and beer. Kadeh was our driver for the week and nothing was too much trouble, he really looked after us. Once arriving at O villas we couldn't believe how much accomadation belonged to us, we could have shared with another family, the bedrooms were very spacious with lovely decor. The whole villa was immaculately clean throughout our stay.
The pool area was so relaxing, all the staff were wonderful and became friends throughout the week. Each morning we were served a wonderful breakfast by the lovely Richard. The food and service excellent, we were made to feel very special. One evening we gave the staff some money for groceries and they cooked us a lovely meal in the villa, which made a nice change after a busy day out.
We could not have wished for nicer staff, my daughter mentioned she liked chocolate and yes much to her delight some appeared in the fridge.
It was great to have a driver and transport whenever we wanted, which was all included, the only time we contributed was a trip to Tanah lot temple.
My only problem now is that I felt totally spoilt during my stay at O Villas and would not want to stay anywhere else.

Hi David, thanks for the great review!

We have had similar comments about how big the actual Villa's are, clients think they must be sharing with other people !! I will pass on your comments about the staff, they are very proud of the Villas and love it when they get great reviews.

We will hopefully see you at O Villas again soon. (-:

Recently spent a week at O Villas, staying with 7 others. We were in the 4 bed room villa which was extremely spacious, much larger than what I thought judging by the photos on their website.

The first thing we were thinking when we arrived was 'is this all for us?' because again, on the website it looks as if the lap pool might be part of the lobby area. The rooms were massive (especially room 1 on the bottom floor), beds quite comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious. The furnishings everywhere were nice and overall it was quite stylish Although I didn't see all of the upstairs bathrooms, I believe two of them were a little smaller. Still enough space for everyone though. Only complaint about the bathrooms was that the water pressure wasn't great and one of the rooms couldn't get warm water intermittently.

The pool area was where we spent most of our time, the day bed was great..could comfortably fit four people on there, had a fan in case it was too hot, and their were four sun beds to tan/snooze/star gaze on. There is power at in the day bed so you can move the iPod dock from the lounge room outside which was great and the outside bathroom was really useful. Not that it could really be helped but at this time of year the sun didn't really go over the pool that much, so it was a bit cold. It would have been great if the pool was heated, but might be overkill for the other times of the year. It would also be nice if the outside towels were cleaned more regularly, as they appeared dirty and we couldn't tell if they were washed for the duration of our stay.

Breakfast daily was superb, you had two menus which were basically Western (eggs, bacon, sausages etc) or Asian (Mie Goreng, Nasi Goreng etc) everything was delicious and you could probably order whatever you wanted and the staff would make it for you. 'No Problem.' We ate dinner in the Villa twice which is extremely affordable (pay for ingredients +20%, worked out to be about 400,000 IDR for 8 people per dinner) everything was delicious, only complaint was a couple of the meals weren't quite hot as they tended to bring them out together. I imagine this is because of the small kitchen, just ask them to bring them out as they're ready.

The staff overall gave us incredible service, nothing was too hard for them, although we probably didn't utilize them us much as we could have. Special mention to Ketut & Kadeh who helped us a lot and were extremely friendly even when we had 'big party' and made quite a mess. The staff drove us anywhere in Seminyak free of charge as well as giving us complimentary transfers to the airport which was much appreciated.

Overall I wouldn't hesitate recommending O Villas to groups, I didn't get to see the 1 bedrooms but can imagine they are of an equal standard and can't wait to go back!

Hi Guys

I know it is several months ago that you wrote your review about O Villas, but i'm afraid the update went into cyber space somewhere and only just made it into our notifications!

I just wanted to say quick THANKS for your kind review, the Villas only opened last April so it was great to get your positive review. I have ensured all the staff have been informed, it is important to them, a good motivator. We hope to see you all there again soon and don't forget to send all your friends !! (-:

Thanks again

Gary
