“Good service but room was full of mosquitoes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We checked into Bali Viviere on our last night in Bali after our friends had returned and we thought to move to somewhere cheaper then a villa. The hotel was very affordable and the service staff were attentive when we arrived. Even though we did not spend much time in the room, it was almost a sleepless night for both of us that night. There were so many mosquitoes in the room and they were literally buzzing around our ears. I had to cover myself fully under the sheets and really didnt get much sleep regardless. It was also very close to the road and you could hear vehicles going past the entire night. Lastly, the sink was clogged and made the bathroom wet and very uncomfortable.It was not at all enjoyable and i really wouldnt ever return again.

Such a gorgeous boutique hotel which is extremely well maintained. We stayed here for 5 nights and were sad to leave. The pool, bedroom and bathroom was spotless. The bathroom in particular was amazing with a large modern bath and rainforest shower with endless hot water.

It's a small hotel so ideal if looking for a quiet place to stay as there are only 4 bedrooms a step away from the pool and one villa with 5 bedrooms in it.

The hotel is situated on a quiet street which is a 3minute walk from the centre of seminyak with amazing restaurants and boutique shops. The beach is also with walking distance but it is about a 15min walk. We got a taxi once which cost €0.60cent!

Would highly recommend this stay as it was fantastic value for money!

We were happy with our stay at Bali Vivere Luxury Hotel and Villa located in Seminyak area . Price was a bargain which we were able to avail from a buying site but the experience was really great!

The pretty and neatly looking boutique hotel was walking distance from the beach, numerous restaurants and bars, groceries as well as near a big shopping mall. You will pass by several booths offering affordable and interesting tour packages to different Bali attractions and destinations. What we have planned ahead was the Borubudor tour only but we promised ourselves to return and avail these tour packages to further explore the beauty and grandeur of Bali.

Dominant colors of the hotel’s interior and exterior were white and beige which exude a soft and impeccably clean look . The little garden with the pool gave the villas a fresh and vibrant ambiance.

Service of Bali Vivere hotel was well-organized from airport pick-up , check-in , breakfast service up to attending to guests’ requests . What was worth mentioning was the flexibility of the staff . Our flight back home was very early in the morning that we could hardly have breakfast anymore and the staff readily agreed to give what is more important to us - we were allowed to convert the free breakfast in exchange of a return airport pick-up which is safer and hassle-free.

Niar , the Restaurant Manager was very friendly , charming and accommodating . She was very professional and impressively nice to us. She supervises the small coffeeshop ; small as it may seem but the food was yummy , artistically presented with good chinawares of hotel standards . It had a small and open kitchen and you get to see how the food was cooked . Kitchen staff was very courteous , attentive and more importantly practiced good hygiene in food preparation. We went around the restaurants within the area, but we preferred to eat in the hotel because we are guaranteed with satisfying and delectable dishes with good warm service .

The bed was very comfortable with soft cuddly pillows and fresh white bed linens
that will surely put you to a restful sleep after a long and tiring day of sight-seeing . The design was very artistic and unique and the decors were carefully selected, simple but truly elegant .

I highly recommend this hotel !

We really enjoyed our stay. The service was above and beyond and they enjoyed helping us. I think this is excellent value for money and would recomend this to friends and family. Breakfast was lovely and the grounds well maintained. Rooms were cleaned every day. This is a new hotel and there are a couple of things that need finishing but it did not interfere with our stay.

We loved the Bali architecture, the large bedroom and open air bathroom.
Pool was warm and well maintained. Fresh beach towels laid out ready to use.
Service from staff was friendly and personal, looking after our every needs.
Sitting at breakfast table close to road you receive lots of smiles from locals on their way to work.
Villa is 10 minutes walking distance from main shopping street with high class restaurants, shops and bars plus a well equipped supermarket.

Room Tip: Room 7 is the larger with open air style bathroom

+ staff were warm, welcoming and v helpful
Room was clean and modern, great pool
Breakfast and juice smoothies good
Really helpful with transfer advice and booking
- location not ideal, 15 minute walk to beach, but bike rental across the road was good
Off quite a busy road so by the pool could be a little noisy
Mosquito problem! I was bitten all over one night and we had to move rooms as our room was full of them, after leaving the bathroom light on overnight when it rained. They should have mosquito nets over the beds

Local staff were friendly, caring & understanding.
Villas were basic, tidy & contained the bare minimum essential items.
The staff made us feel welcomed and catered above & beyond our needs. We enjoyed our stay at Bali Vivere because of the staff, the cook and having the opportunity to meet the Manager Joanne.
