“Room for improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2010

We stayed in the one bedroom villa. It was new and spacious and very quiet and relaxing. However with construction going on at the villa next door to us there was lots of crashing and even jackhammering so loud that while we were in the bath it vibrated! We did move villas and they were very accommodating of this. The attention to detail was lacking - the doors were difficult to lock and the shower was not very good at all. The wifi didn't work and on one day there was no running water for an hour. We booked thru wotif and it said there would be afternoon tea and breakfast cooked in your villa, however there was no afternoon tea and brekky delivered via room service rather than cooked. The food, although very cheap, was of poor quality.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2010

i booked this villa 5 months ago @ US$130 per night for the one bedroom villa, and before arrival I have read about negative reviews regarding the old villa, so I requested for new villa and jacuzzi bathtub. Was given a 2-bedroom villa initially with one room locked, but it was situated right behind the reception and restaurant, we changed to a one bedroom villa #203 without jacuzzi.

First impression is the airy and sunshine feel which we love, and it was a min walk away from reception which we preferred for the serenity and quietness. The dining area and bedroom are air-conditioned, which I personally like as all previous villa i stayed have open concept living area, including the 2-bedroom villa we were initially offered.

Bedroom is spacious, bathroom have 2 sinks, a bath tub and shower. One thing that bothers me a little is that the toilet bowl is only 50 cm away from the bathtub with no partition at all, so imagine if you were soaking in the tub and your partner is having big business! *haha* The shower is between the sink and has a door leading out toward the pool which i love! But there are no door between the shower room and sink/toilet bowl/bathtub.

Upon staying, we found ants on the pavement and dead caterpillar in the pool! There are also small bugs flying here and there! I guess it is the norm just that i came from the city and was kinda bothered by the sight everytime i stayed in villa. The more expensive villa and reputable hotels in bali seems not to have such problems. So it's a give and take senario

Breakfast, not much variety, ordered omelette every morning, not too filling but the taste is good. Green curry is nice too, but remember not to order pork, take chicken instead! The pork is hard and tough! *my poor gum and teeth* They also never clear the plates till the next day. No turn down service too

The water is very hot from the sink and cold water runs very slowly, it seems like there is a tank of hot water and when it runs out while filling the bathtub, the water are cold after 1/3 of tub filled. but it is a really big tub, enough to fit 2.

Pool is adequate size to swim and i love standing below the waterfall as it hit hard and massage my aching shoulder! Temperature is nice also as it get sunshine the whole day! Sun tanning is perfect too!

Shuttle service not very impressive, most of the time i have to get a cab out as there are no shuttle available, probably they should have more cars instead,

But i do like the money exchange service, the rate are comparable to money exchange, but they only have SG$100 to change, probably for emergency.

The staff knows basic english but still at times it can be hard to communicate, esp the female receptionist, the male one is good.

In conclusion, the villa is value for $$$, new and clean *except bugs which are inevitable*, nice thai food *green curry chicken only* nice breakfast but not much portion, nice pool and sunshine, poor shuttle service, basic amenities only, dirty sunbed * but covered with towel is ok*

The Bali Rich Villa Hotel is located in Seminyak, an upscale area of Bali. The villas were beautiful, spacious, clean and well maintained. Each has a tall privacy wall, a private pool, very large covered patio for lounging and dining, superb bedrooms and large bathrooms. The public walkways are lined with beautiful flowering plants and set the initial impression for a very enjoyable stay. The staff is friendly, sincerely interested in their customers and efficient. The food, especially the breakfasts, was uniformly delicious! (Try the French Toast and local Balinese coffee!) The only two drawbacks to the hotel were that you need a taxi to get to restaurants and nightlife or shopping, but the rides are only about 5-10 minutes. The other issue was the crow of roosters from a neighboring property starting early in the morning. Still, for the great value received, I found these two drawbacks to be very minor.

We arrived in the evening and were shown to our 2 person private villa which was quite a walk from reception; everything seemed fine but we were woken in the morning by builders (room 108)
On closer inspection our villa was old; pool was a bit manky and I think it was probably next to go on the demolition list. We asked if we could be moved to the new villas and later that day we were re-located to a beautiful shiny new 4 person pad with a gorgeous pool, wifi, huge kitchen dining area etc. (rooom 210)
We spent 3 days here only leaving when hungry as it was so nice.
Breakfast was standard.
My advice - make sure you get a new villa.

The hotel is currently still renovating their premises and the old standard villas. Must select the new deluxe villa. Villa are very new, clean and spacious. Can really enjoy quietness and relaxation here with your own private pool. Funny thing is a Bali hotel only serves Thai food but the food are quite delicious. A bit distance from main Seminyak street, hotel can arrange transfer to Seminyak area to your request. Airport transfer. Spa are basic and less of facilities but the masseur is very good.

During my time there, the hotel was in the midst of renovations. My friends and I were situated in what seems the old sector of the Villas. The pictures represent the villas quite accurately and the service was fantastic. Room service was pretty quick and reasonably priced; the breakfast was great. You get a fridge that's not over stocked so you can get snacks and stuff at the convenient store across the road (from the back entrance).
The villa we stayed in seemed a bit aged though, which explains the need for renovations. Nevertheless, the place was very well maintained and very clean. Oh, the tv doesn't offer many channels, but you get a dvd player so that makes up for it.

We initially stayed in one of the older villas of which there are 6 then were upgraded due to power problems. We were moved to a new villa. It was absolutely beautiful. I have stayed all over the world in hotels and I would recommend this place to anyone. The room s are practically new and everything work s and is completely fresh and clean. This place was recommended to me by a friend and I have not been able to thank him enough. I have to say that we go to Bali on average 2 times a year and this is the best place we have stayed. The chef is previously from the Four sessions hotel and cooks the most exquisite food. We would normally eat out in Bali every night but actually ended up having friends come to us and ordering a banquet which was not only cheaper but A1. I actually asked the chef for a couple of recepies before I left...The staff will bend over backwards to help. Our kids loved it and no need to worry about them making noise, you have enough privacy from others. Also have a very handy shuttle we used at least once a day.
