I had the pleasure of staying at the Ahimsa Seminyak with my family of 6 adults and 1 child (1> yrs) from 21th-24th January 2014. I have read the awesome reviews and after much thinking, I decided to book this villa.
For the kind of price we paid, I believe that this is the absolute best choice for 3BR villas in the Seminyak area. The location of the villa was great because it was in a quiet part of Seminyak and yet, if you wanted to head out to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the place, there is a free shuttle service to anywhere in Seminyak. Or if you like to walk, a 5-minute walk in any direction will take you somewhere interesting.
The bedrooms were only decent but with comfortable beds. What really impressed me were the bathrooms. Fitted with marble-finishings and quality bathroom accessories, laid out in a stylish and sexy outdoor design.
My family really enjoyed the mornings. Waking up to catch the sunrise, we would jump into the pool for a short dip while the awesome staff at the Ahimsa cooked us our breakfast. Breakfast was delicious (with Indonesian, American, Japanese and Healthy styled options) and I liked that they were always ready to serve us a little bit more when we asked for more eggs and ham. The juices were a refreshing way to start the day.
Another little gesture we appreciated was the all-day complimentary coffee and tea. Having a aromatic, Indonesian coffee right before every activity adds such a great touch to every experience.
I also liked that we there was a high-end convenience store about a minute's walk from the place. We went there to buy some awesome steaks and seafood for a in-house BBQ on our final night in Bali. The staff were very efficient and professional and served up an unforgettable BBQ right in our villa.
Just a 2 minute walk away is a mix of cheap and expensive massage parlours and salons to cater to every need. Overall, this is the kind of place you should go to if you want an unforgettable trip in Bali :-)
