We went to Bali at the last minute to escape the haze of singapore. I booked so quickly I didn't even check out the pictures on the hotel website, I just booked based on the reviews on tripadvisor. When we arrived ( v stressed I might say!) we thought I had made a big mistake because we are travelling with our 16 month old twins and there is no indoor living space, even the bathrooms have pebbles in them and are outside, we thought it would be really hard work as it doesnt look v child friendly. (The villas do provide a fence for the pool on request, but we didn't request it.) We spent a few hours that night looking for somewhere else to go. The next morning came and the staff came to the villa to make our breakfast for us. The breakfast was lovely, the staff really nice and as we sat there eating our breakfast, it was so peaceful and beautiful we decided to stay. The staff were really great, the room service food was excellent quality, hot and the menu was really varied, we also had a bbq which was beautiful too. There are so many lovely touches. I really appreciated the grocery shopping service and the 19 litre bottle of water on a hot/cold dispenser which is refilled on request. We went to lunch with some friends at the W hotel, which is totally different and stunning of course, but not nearly as relaxing as the Villas seminyak. for us, so we were really pleased with my choice and that we didnt leave! I should also say that they really do pest management v well, and as the mossies love me, and with two little ones, I really appreciated that. We had frogs in the kitchen area, but I quite liked them! My only comments would be that it would be nice to have a decent sofa area or large daybed, it may have just been our villa, but I found myself wandering around or sitting on the floor as the two sofas are at the corners of the outside living space and very high for little ones to climb onto. All in all a really lovely lovely place. So well run.
