I stayed at the Amihsa Villas in Seminyak in Bali in September 2012. Two of us stayed in a two bedroom pool villa. (All villas have private pools. The villa far exceeded my expectations. We arrived after dark and long lane leading to the villas was beautifully lit, giving us an immediate feeling of serenity. The villa we stayed in had a really interesting design, with indoor/outdoor living very spacious. The private pool was huge. The villa was spotlessly clean with all the facilities provided. The breakfasts were cooked and served in the villa by the extremely friendly staff. The breakfast choice was either western or Indonesian. The banana pancakes with delicious. The staff were very happy to prepare any special meal requirements and they were always served with a smile. Nothing ever felt rushed, which made for a very relaxing atmosphere. The attention to delay made our stay very enjoyable. The staff at reception could not have been more courteous with the numerous request we had. The villa cars are available free of charge to be dropped off at local restaurants, subject to availability. The security guard will even blow his whistle to slow the traffic down and escort one across the road to the money changer. The location worked well for us as we wanted to be away from busy Kuta, but still wanted easy access to the restaurants in Seminyak. There is no spa at Ahimsa, but the villas provide an excellent massage servise at competitive rates and the massages I had were better than the bigger hotels and the local massages located near to the villas. We both agreed that we will return to Amimsa villas when we return to Bali. They really do have it all.
