“Bhavana Privat Villas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great location, walking distance to the best shops, restaurants and beach in Seminyak. Rooms are tidy and spacious, with beautiful covered outdoor bathrooms and living area. Private pools are large and perfect for quick dip.

The staff were super helpful and friendly from the moment we were collected from the airport. Our villa was beautiful with a large bedroom and serene garden to look out into. The location is really central to all the great restaurants & shops in seminyak, but the villa itself is quiet and peaceful. This is the second time we have stated here. We came back bcos it is the best breakfast we had ever had. Unfortunately the menu has changed but it is still comparable to other villas. Would recommend a stay here.

On a late arrival wow! Great airport pick up by driver Alit who spoke great english and very knowledgable, staff brilliant, villa looked fantastic! Alit is also a driver for hire for the day- he was unavailable but recommended a friend Wayan who was great
For the next 3 days and night the same standard continued! Then disappointing for next 3 days - toilet broke, no water in shower, "maintenance issues in kitchen " in fact small maintenance issues everywhere does it sound like a carry on movie??? Staff did their absolute best in trying circumstances. Luckily close to restaurants and shops in seminyak. It is a bit of pot luck with very helpful staff on reception with varying degrees of English. Ulin spa just 5 minute walk is fantastic day spa. Only a minor complaint but to say the pool was refreshing is an understatement. To finish on a positive food and bar prices very reasonable even though villa over priced. ( food and massage prices cheaper than in seminyak) weather was absolutely beautiful everyday as I've been told it always is! Restaurant recommend Rumours (just a short walk down the street) kitchen club seemed good to us although never full at night only busy during day, Potato Head Club is a great venue for a day and to see sunset get there early to get agood daybed! Minimum spend on daybed is 500 000 rupiah but easy to do! Great leather shop in legian is dolphin leather for jackets, suits, bags, shoes (men's and ladies) dolphin leather. Address is Sahadawa St between melatstiand Palma street. Not a place to barter (not cheap) but quality is fantastic, tailor made leather jkt takes 4days and costs $180 AUD approx depending on style and leather. The free shuttle bus around seminyak is hit or miss driver seems to always be taking the boss to Nusa dua or "just gone out" Legian is to far for shuttle bus a distance of maybe 3 Kim's. Down the road to the right of the villa is a fantastic little coffe shop called at d'boat house coffee shop. Great tasting food and cheap , friendly and very helpful. Dinner at La Lucciola is beautiful get there for a beautiful sunset

Room Tip: If you want good wifi connection reception told us to ask for villa 1 or 2 they have the best connec...

Love the place. Friendly staff and service. Look forward to coming back here. The private pool is such luxury.Having breakfast cooked fresh in our villa was so special too. The ambiance at night was magical. Definitely recommended.

It is tottally my mistakes not to read a review from trip advisor before checking in...
The villa itself i must say not too bad.... The interior and design, the pool they are nice...
But some several things need to improve :
1. The breakfast is faaaar from nice. Its like a breakfast in a cheap motel, sorry just being honest...
2. The bathroom itself is nice, but clearly you have to fix the water problem seriously, its not nice it keep on and off all the time, the shower is not enjoyable at all
3. The pool is smell bad, like the chemical smell but it is even harder than the public pool....
4. When we checking in, the pillows outside, on the sofa, they have black spot on it and really really smell bad... I have no idea how when the last time they wash it....
The review above is based on a 2 bedrooms villa.
Will i come back to this villa or recoommend? For the price, i don't think so :(

We stayed for 4 nights in these large villas with beautiful pool and outdoor bathrooms. Polite friendly staff that come and cook breakfast in your villa each morning. Comfy bed and great shower. They could get some new towels though, they are a bit tired looking. Great location within walking distance to Laksmana street to plenty of restaurants and shops. At corner of Laksmana is Ultimo restaurant, great food at reasonable prices. You must also try Metis and Sarong restaurants! Return airport shuttle is great.

Dear Pops and Neelo,

Warmest greeting from Bhavana Private Villas,

Thank you for taking time to submit your comment from your recent stay at Bhavana Private Villas

It is with pleasure to learn that our services have met your expectations. Your comments are very much appreciated as they contribute tremendously in keeping up staff motivation.

The past two years we've been trying to bring Bhavana Private Villas to its best performance, we do regular general maintenance, replace the broken facility and adding more amenities to satisfy our guest.

Some program are completed, and some still on progress. Anyhow we will continue our maintenance program to be sure that we could serve our guest in the best possible way at all time. I am sure that you will see the better Bhavana on your next visit.

Our towels and linens indeed need to be up-graded, some are serving our guest for over a year now and surely need to be replaced, therefore we have ordered new linens for our guests. The new pool towel arrives just last week and more linens scheduled to come gradually. We hope to be able to serve a better quality of linens soon. Thank you for bringin this matter to our attention.

Once again, thank you for choosing bhavana for your holiday destination. All of us here at the Bhavana Private Villas look forward to welcoming you back in the hopefully not too distant future.


On behalf of the Staff and Management
Warm Regards
Reni Dianawati
General Manager
