“Stay here for staff who care”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We had the beautiful two bedroom villa for our stay and it's a wonderful and quiet oasis not far from the best spots in Seminyak. The property is everything 5 star they advertise but it's the genuine friendliness of the staff that sets it apart... From the room turn down team to the wonderful staff in the bar/restaurant and spa, they genuinely want to make sure you've got everything you need for a special holiday. After a few drinks in the bar on our first evening, we were welcomed automatically for breakfast by name the next day and from then on, everyone seemed to know our preferences and what might suit us. Bail's renowned for its friendliness, but the team (especially Dewi.A) at the Elysian should just be commended!

The villas are modern, serviced extremely well and have pools of decent size. I cannot complement the staff enough, the care they take of you really makes the stay special.
Would be great if the little complex had a direct route to the beach, as currently you have to go through a very narrow road with a lot of traffic, so that is something to think about.
Very good use of the limited space, even if the villas do feel a bit cramped. On the other side, the location is perfect, as it is close to the centre and right next to the nice restaurants on the beach.

Elysian has nothing more to offer than a plunge pool and large rooms. It does not have beach or any kind of bali view but it charges the same amount as those hotels who has. I recommend you oberoi next door you pay may be slightly more but at least you get something in return.

The villa is nice but nothing special you can create the the same atmosphere at your backyard by having a 2 square meter plunge pool, just looking at walls and never feel that you are in bali..it is somehow comfortable with plenty of space and separate bedroom area.

The staff is generally good and nice. They try to help as much ad they could. So mo critics on that side.

The main restaurant and lobby also looks at pool and walls so not sure you come all the way to bali to look at nice lighted walls.

I believe for the same amount of hotel you can stay hotels with nice view and nice quality. And feel that you are at bali. But of course if your interest is watching walls and 2 sqm plunge pool then elysian is excellent choice.

Also beware not very close to main street and it is not a nice walk at night. 10-15 mins on a road without a pave way...

Dear Onur_Tr,

I would like thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us through Tripadvisor.

I do regret that the resort does not meet your expectations and did not allow you to enjoy the time you had with us in Bali.
Our resorts are built for maximum privacy and our lush with tropical gardens are made to make someone feel as if they are inside the jungles of a tropical island. No direct beach to the resort is considered for privacy concerns of our guests as all beaches in Bali have public access.
Your feedback is being shared with the management of the property as your comments were used to further improvements.

However, I am happy to learn that our staff are able to bring you The Elysian brand service.

We still look forward to having the pleasure of welcoming you back to our resort in the near future.

Kind Regards,

Made Subrata

From the moment we arrived we knew that we had arrived somewhere special. I have stayed in a number of hotels for pleasure and business and I would say that the staff here delivered the best service I have ever experienced. Nothing was too much to ask, they were always helpful with where to eat or what to see. Smiles were never in short supply.
The photos don't do justice to actually arriving at your villa, they are amazing. Clean, open and bright. I love the walk down shower. You do have to wait a couple of minutes for the warm water to arrive but once there, it is great. I love the touch of providing a Ipod for the BOSE sound system. On returning home I actually downloaded some of the albums.
We enjoyed the Elysian so much that we actually only went to the beach once (only a 5 minute walk away) and had all our dinners at the hotel, (3 nights)
Some people have made comment about lack of sun, we were in Villa 5 and we were pleased that didn't get the sun all day as would have been too hot and you would have spent most of your time inside to escape it. we spent most of our time on the outside lounger reading, perfect.
Have dinner beside the pool, very romantic.
One other highlight is that they will bring breakfast to you room for no extra charge!! Breakfast here is the perfect start to the day.
We were in Villa 5 which is right beside the road and the entrance, but due to the high walls that surround the villa we heard very little noise. Actually got more noise from the villa next door than the road, and this was only when they were in the pool.
We also made use of the spa, best value massage at any hotel I have stayed at.
We are definitely coming back here and telling all our friends about the Elysian.

This was our 4th stay at The Elysian and once again had a wonderful time. We were greeted upon our arrival like old friends. The villas are so peaceful, great to retreat to after being out and about all day. As with all of our stays, the staff are so cheerful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We would definitely recommend The Elysian if you're after beautiful surroundings, tranquillity and warm, caring and professional staff.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at the Elysian! The staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone you walk past had a smile on their face and we felt very welcome during the entire visit. Our villa was amazing and in such a great location. People have noted the small road the Elysian is located on, but it really wasn't a big deal. We enjoyed not being on a main road, and it was only a quick walk to get anywhere you wanted to go. The in-room dining service was excellent with plenty of options to choose from, and the restaurant staff were brilliant. Would go back in a heartbeat!

I'm still here at the moment but thought I would right the review anyway. This place is amazing. Yes people write about the lack of sun by the private pools but we get sun from about 1-6 each day. The refurb rooms are lovely with all you need. Furthermore the restaurant is fantastic, breakfast brilliant, and the service is fantastic. The staff are simply amazing. Before this we were in Hong Kong it's the second leg of our honeymoon. Simply can't recommend more. After this we go to Singapore before we head back home. I don't want it to ever end. We will defiantly come back. You can pay a lot more in Bali which would be a waste. You can pay less but I would def upgrade if you can. I can't fault this place, it is an Oasis of calm, peace, relaxation and attentive service. Just chill by the pool or retreat to your own pool. This is heaven on earth.
