“Exceptional Villa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

My husband and I spent 6 lovely days at the Kunja Villa's. Couldn't have asked for more from this place. From the moment we arrived we felt like royalty, the staff go above and beyond for you. Breakfast every morning cooked by a Kunja chef and afternoon-tea everyday was fabulous and room service from nearby restaurants was a lovely addition for dinner. The private pool was beautifully clean as was the rest of the villa. Be aware of the mosquitos as most of the villa (except the bedroom) is open air. The Kunja staff come in the evening to mosquito spray which helps a lot! They also provide free transport to local areas and are more than happy to organise a day trip for you as well. Can't recommend the Kunja Villa's enough for a relaxing holiday!

My wife and I have just spent 7 nights at the Kunja relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. The quiet, private surroundings of our villa including the private pool were a perfect way to relax and almost like being on a second honeymoon.

We particularly enjoyed being spoilt with breakfast and afternoon-tea prepared each day by the staff in our villa at a time to suit ourselves. (Changing times was no issue at all) There was a good selection of breakfast options and we managed to try most of them and enjoyed each of them equally.

The Kunja is a little bit away from the main Seminyak areas but that is the whole point of the hotel. The staff were always on hand to provide transfers to the beach or local restaurants / shops on request. The in-room service included menu's from a number of local restaurants covering all tastes so there was no excuse for us going hungry.

The rooms were kept very clean and the bed was very comfortable, I got the best nights sleep in a long time and that includes stays at a number of Singapore's premium hotels in recent months.

If you are after a quiet location to pamper yourself for a week then we cannot recommend The Kunja highly enough.

We (me and my boyfriend from Sydney) stayed in the Kunja Villa's in September 2013 for 8 nights.

The chauffeur picked us up from the airport with ease and we were then driven to the villa (about a 45 minute drive) and upon arrival we were taken into a little bit of paradise! The 1 bedroom villa we stayed in (no. 7), was bigger than we had expected from looking at the photo's and was very clean. We loved the big outdoor living space our own private pool.

While staying at the villa we used the spa facilities. The massage ($20 for 60 minutes) was probably one of the best massages we have ever had! I also used the spa to do a mani/pedi; I would say that the mani/pedi probably wasn't worth the money, the nail painting didn't last longer than a day and the polish was quite thick and didn't look too good. About a 4 minute drive away is a great nail salon (Sydney prices) who do an exceptional job and which would have lasted over a week if I hadn't wanted to change the colour. It was called Think Pink Nails (Jl. Batu Belig).

We ordered quite a bit of room service (please note they do not have their own restaurant so you get to pick from a number of restaurants in the area) including Grocer and Grind (who catered for our wedding the following week when we stayed in Canggu). The villa can also arrange special dinners in the villa; suckling pig or seafood. These were quite reasonably priced but unfortunately we run out of time to do this.

Highlights:
Bathroom; spectacular massive open room with double sinks, shower and bath.
Bedroom; very comfy bed.
Pool; own pool which was pretty big for just two of us!

Lowlights:
Bedroom; smelt of stale cigerettes - we rectified this by asking for some incense sticks
Bathroom; no air con so did get pretty hot in here when getting ready

Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Kunja Villa, Seminyak, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. If we return to Seminyak I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

I recently stayed in a three bedroom Villa (Number 10, which is the closest to the front of the property) at the Kunja Villas Seminyak. I went there with my wife, 2 year old daughter and my father and mother in law. The Villa was perfect, three seperate bedrooms (very private) each with its own (huge) wardrobe and bathroom (complete with semi open shower and big bath tub, which was easy to bathe our daughter in). The living area was fantastic, actually it was huge, it looked out over the massive 12 x 5 meter pool, the staff at kunja also moved a TV and DVD out into the living area so we could watch DVD's when our daughter went to sleep. The grass and pool area were also fantastic, with plenty of room for older and younger kids to run around, it comes complete with it's own outdoor shower, which is always nice because you can. The staff at Kunja installed a non perminant pool fence in as we where worried that our daughter would be constantly running into the pool, with this fence this was not a problem at all. They also gave us a little slide that my daughter had a ball with, sliding down dolls and all. Re - The pool, as I mentioned it was huge, almost too big for a family of 4 plus one child, that said, we loved it. Especially considering it had an area about 3 meters by 2 that was only ankle deep, which is where our two year old had many hours of fun, jumping off the ledge into Daddy's arms. As far as the staff at Kunka go, I cannot fault them. Every morning at our requested time two of them would be there to cook our breakfast in our Villa, whether it be American, Continental or Indonesian (I ordered Nasi Goreng every morning for the treat). They were very attentive down to the different orange juice, coffee or tea and even setting the table magnificently. Breakfast in our Villa was a great way to start the day. As for transportation, at our call the staff at Kunja would drop us anywhere from Waterbom Park, to Seminyak Square or places like Potato Head, La Lucciola, the only thing was that we had to get cabs/walk back, which is not a problem considering there is always a bluebird (taxi) waiting somewhere at any given time. I can also not fault the location of the Villa, within 5 minutes walk of great Seminyak eateries like Sarong or Meraputih, and a little further (10 mins walk) to Potato head, La Lucciola or Ku De Ta. Seminyak Sqaure was about a 15 minute walk (all I can say is don't always trust google maps in Bali, 15 minute walk home from Seminyak Square turned into a 30 minute sojourn back through many houses in Seminyak, a good way to see Bali. Overall, if you want to spend a little more (still excellent value for 5 star villa), either a couple or extended family, that want somewhere far enough away from the hussle and bussle, but close enough to be comfortable. Kunja Villas, just might be it. We will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 10 which is the closest 3 bedroom Villa to the front of the resort which is handy...

We recently spent 9 nights at Kunja. We were recommended the Kunja by a friend and am so glad that we took his recommendation. We were celebrating a birthday family reunion and stayed in the 3 bedroom villa. Total 6 adults.
We had the time of our lives. We were staying in something that was described to me by one of the locals as some sort of palace!!!
The villa was amazing, All the staff were incredible, everything we asked for was attended too with no trouble and always with a smiling face. The pool and gardens were immaculately looked after, breakfast and afternoon tea was fantastic and the pancakes were to die for....
The location was great, and the transport service provided was a wonderful bonus.
I would definitely recommend the Kunja to anyone

Just finished 11 days at Kunja Villas in the Petitinget area of Seminyak. Spacious, very well maintained, just off the main road quiet and serene. The facilities and staff make a memorable stay and both the staff and the villas of the Kunja made ours truly memorable for all the right reasons. Helpfull, friendly, discrete, everything was done with a minimum of fuss, quietly and efficiently. Having seen the in-house guest comments and those on Trip advisor many return time and again. I know we will

About to leave after 6 days at kunja. The villas are beautiful with amazing gardens and a great private pool. I loved the fact that kunja is not on a busy main road because you tend to go out exploring seminyak a little more by foot. Which is the best way to take everything in.

The staff are so friendly and will do anything for you. We would recommend kunja for a relaxing holiday
