“Wonderful Holiday - Beyond Expectation!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I have been to Bali many times and stayed in many Villas.

My recent ten days at THE VILLAS was extra special for so many reasons. Breakfast sensational and very importnat to me. Must have good coffee and nothing better than a great Eggs Benadict...

The Villas themselves are fabulous surrounded by a tropical Oasis and the pool is large unlike others. A great space - very open and beautiful gardens. Had some great naps on the daybeds - heavenly!!!

The 50% discount offered to guests at Prana Spa is a huge bonus and so convenient to wander back and relax afterwards in such a stunning environment.

The location in Seminyak is fantastic and having Bali Deli just accross the street is the best.

Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a stay at THE VILLAS

HAPPY TRAVELS

Room Tip: If needed they can do what is called a Hollwood twin so you can have two people in one King bed but...

Dear Nicki L,
Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay with us and thank you for your recommendation!
It is great to know that with so many wonderful accommodation options in Bali that you found us to offer a very special holiday experience. We pride ourselves on our high level of service and genuine ‘can do’ attitude and of course having beautiful villas makes things even more special!
Having breakfast prepared in the privacy of your own villa makes starting the day even better and knowing that you can take a dip in your own pool and sit in the comfort of your own tropical garden seems to make things even more exotic.
Wonderful to hear that you took advantage of our in house guest offer in Prana Spa which makes visiting more than once so easy! What a wonderful way to recharge and relax!
Thank you again for your recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

We've been staying at The Villas for years. In fact, it was the first villa complex in the area, and that makes a big difference: the spacious villa gardens are luxuriant and well-established, the main open-air living areas have soaring Balinese-style thatched roofs, and basically you know you're in Bali (even in the heart of Seminyak). In spite of its age, it's beautifully maintained, and, many of the staff have been there for years -- they're incredibly well-trained, unfailingly helpful and always genuinely welcoming.
These days there are plenty of shiny modern villas to choose from, and we prefer the beauty and style of The Villas. It's genuinely a home away from home. And the location is unbeatable -- great restaurants and wonderful shopping are just a short walk (or a short ride) away.

Room Tip: The 1-bedroom villas are ideal for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. But we like the 3-bedroom villa...

Dear Stephanie B,
Thank you for taking the time to share your holiday experience on Tripadvisor. As a return guest over the years you are a great gauge in which we measure ourselves as a property and as a team. There are many new and wonderful accommodation options in Bali as you mentioned and for you to return time and time again shows that we are doing things right.
Our villas are amazing and are ideal for so many situations making for a perfect holiday location complete with your own private, large pool! The mix of Balinese architecture, space, modern conveniences and our location make us ideal – you know you are in Bali and the exotic atmosphere is all around but you don’t have to do without all the things you love.
There is no doubting that our villas are beautiful but it is the team that is the real hero so a big thank you for acknowledging us. We are so lucky to have many wonderful team members at The Villas where it is normal practice to have a great attitude and offer fantastic service. We genuinely want you to have a great holiday and strive very hard to make this happen.
We look forward to welcoming you again to your “home away from home” and again thank you for your recommendation.

What a wonderful place to go for a honeymoon! Couldn't have found anywhere as perfect! From the moment I walked through the door or our hut I felt as though I was in heaven and when I heard the music playing I knew I was!
The villa consisted of an outdoor kitchen in which we had our breakfast cooked in front of us daily, two very comfy sun beds and a private pool! We even had our own little fish living in a small pond! I could have lived there!!! The villa was cleaned daily and the sheets were turned down every night.
We couldn't of asked for anything more!!! We do hope to return again maybe for a special anniversary! Thank you again!

Dear HeatherAirey85,
Fantastic that you chose to spend your Honeymoon at The Villas – we too can’t think of a better location!
Our villas complete with their own private swimming pools make for a wonderful retreat in which to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Our villas perfectly blend Balinese architecture with modern luxury where you can sit poolside, in your beautiful tropical garden, listening to your own music through our stereo system with everything that you would expect of a full service hotel at your finger tips – just perfect!
Great that you enjoyed having breakfast prepared and served in your villa each day – this is a highlight for many guests and is a wonderful way to start the day.
We offer great benefits to return guests so please contact us directly when you are planning your return anniversary visit.
Thank you for taking the time to share your honeymoon experience and we look forward to seeing you again.

Service poor had to ask for pool to be cleaned (as it was green), try to charge extra for mini bar. We travell to bali every 2 years stay in pool villas just didnt get it very average for upmarket price

Dear Mark O,
Thank you for taking the time to share your holiday experience on Tripadvisor. It is great to hear that you liked the layout of our villas and disappointing that your holiday did not meet your expectations.
Our villas are perfect for a holiday with friends or family and as a guest you not only have the privacy and luxury of your own private villa but all the services you would expect of a full service hotel.
Our aim is always for you to have a wonderful holiday experience and whilst Tripadvisor is a great tool for planning holidays, talking to us when you are here is more beneficial so we can solve whatever is not making you happy.
We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and high level of service and it is very unusual to hear that you found these areas lacking.
Thank you again for your feedback and please contact us directly if we can assist further.

Stayed in The Villas with group of friends for the third time now. Villa 12 is a great 2-bedroom villa with a huge living/tv area on the first floor, which is big enough to have a friend or two to stay over. Surprisingly The Villas is well maintained considering it has been around for many years. Location wise, it is centrally located, it is nearby to Bali Deli (mini mart) and many restaurants within the vicinity. Ideal location for those wanting somewhere quiet yet right in Seminyak.

Breakfast is nothing fancy and was made at the villa. All the staff are very attentive and friendly, the taxi service provided by The Villas too is great... and clean.

There seem to be a lot of mosquitoes at night, so best to stock up those mosquito coils and could request this from housekeeping.

Dear inhead69,

Thank you for taking the time to share your holiday experience on Tripadvisor. Our villas are an ideal getaway and perfect for family or friends to get together. It is great to hear that after a number of visits to Bali that you choose to return to The Villas – so from all of us thank you for your loyalty.

Our location is fantastic and we are ideally situated close to many experiences that make Bali wonderful. We are the original villa/hotel concept in Bali and our villas combine Balinese architecture with modern luxury – so the best of both worlds surrounded by beautiful lush, tropical gardens and of course your own swimming pool. Our team strives hard to maintain the property so thank you for acknowledging this.

There is no doubting that our villas are beautiful but it is our team that are the true stand out – we genuinely enjoy making your holiday wonderful and again thank you for acknowledging this.

Life in the tropics is wonderful and this warm, balmy weather does attract many unwanted visitors. We do have a mosquito management plan in place which includes fogging weekly in all areas. We also provide other items in every villa to use especially at dusk when mosquitos do like to come out.

We all look forward to welcoming you again when you next visit Bali.

I have just come back from a week in Bali, before I made the decision to holiday in Bali I researched numerous Villas and finally decided on The Villas Bali. After my stay I can tell you that this decision proved to be perfect as The Villas Bali extended my wife and I more hospitality than I have seen in any other part of the globe we have vistited, nothing was a problem for the staff and they always went out of there way to great you or wave, very friendly enviroment.
Part of holidaying at a place with a pool villa to us was having a private area for relaxation and as soon as we entered through our door into our villa we knew that tranquility was ours to be had over the coming week, don't think I have had a better area for relaxation on a holiday. The location was perfect, easy walking distance to shopping and a great restaurant area. I would definitely recommend spending some time in Prana Spa also as the treatments on offer there are exquisite. Thanks to Andrew, Alison and Staff for making this one of the most enjoyable holidays I have experienced and looking forward to heading back next year.

Divine. Magical. Heavenly. From the moment we walked in, we were 'oohing and aahing' at our little piece of paradise. Exquisitely set amongst huge franfipanis, palms, bougainvilleas and hibiscus our one bedroom villa boasted everything we needed and more. With high high walls it was the ultimate in privacy, so we enjoyed many an al fresco swim in the gorgeous pool. There was an extra upstairs lounge with TV which we barely used, and our villa had a gorgeous little dining area, kitchen, poolside lounges and a fab, mosquito netted king size bed. Lovely artworks and backlist statues dotted the garden, which lit up at night like fairyland. Some days it really was hard to leave our haven. Because we stayed for 11 nights our package included a seafood barbecue cooked in our villa - they came and put candles everywhere and waited on us hand and foot - we didn't even have to pour our own wine! A truly romantic evening. Every night our bed was turned down for us and mosquito net unfurled. Every morning we enjoyed a luscious breakfast in the Prana Restaurant. We also received a free massage in the divine Prana spa - out of this world. More than anything it is the staff who make this place so special - so polite, friendly and warm, without being obsequious - they cannot do enough for you. And as the Villas is right opposite the fabulous Bali deli (the perfect place to pick up nibbles and wine) and away from the crowds, it really is a slice of heaven. Cannot recommend highly enough. Will be very sad to leave tomorrow!!

Room Tip: If you can book a corner villa at the back of the gardens. Ours was so quiet and peaceful - number 7...

Dear Cratebot,

Great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us and you have summed us up perfectly – our villas are your “own tropical oasis”!

We hear quite often that people have grand plans of shopping and sightseeing and it all gets put aside as they relax and unwind in their own piece of paradise. Some don’t leave for days and then it’s only to Bali Deli and back! That in itself is what makes us so special – complete privacy, yet everything available if you want it and all delivered with a warm, sincere smile!

A sign of a good holiday is when your inhibitions are left behind and you can simply sit back and just enjoy! Wonderful to also hear that you enjoyed breakfast and your BBQ – both are so much more than just a meal - with full service, decorations and delicious food; simply devine! Prana Spa is also like no other, completely exotic and wonderful at the same time and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your treatments.

Thank you for acknowledging the efforts of our team. We are very lucky to have such wonderful people work here who genuinely want you to be happy.

Thank you for your wonderful recommendation and for taking the time, whilst still here, to share your experience. We do offer great benefits to return guests so simply drop us an email or refer to our website when you are next planning a holiday to Bali.

We look forward to welcoming you again.
