“Sensational - Seminyak's Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

My mate and I have just returned (november 2013) from a 5 day visit at Villa Seminyak. We both desperately needed a getaway..... I had just been made redundant at my company after 16 years, and my mate's wonderful wife of 30+ years had recently passed away. Villa Seminyak and it's wonderful staff were obviously God sent....way beyond our expectations. I just searched the internet, read one or 2 reviews and thought this place looks right for my mate and I. We stayed in one of their 2 bedroom villas with private pool and gardens. The 2 bedrooms are completely separated by an outdoor alfresco and sitting area overlooking the private pool. Both bedrooms are large....both rooms have generous walk through robe areas leading to massive bathrooms featuring roman spa baths. The alfresco dining area has a reasonable sized fridge and cooking facilities should you want to prepare your own meals......perfect for a couple and 2 children or 2 couples. The villa pool was pristine clean and the gardens immaculate. Each villa was completely private from adjacent villas. I noted Jules681 and another reviewer stated that breakfast wasn't that good on their visits. All I can say is that the management has lifted it's game in this area, because we thought the breakfast options and quality were outstanding. We enjoyed fresh poached eggs and tasty omelettes made on request, fresh snapper fillets, sweet and sour fish and all the normal western expectations like bacon, sausages, hash browns, grilled tomatoes and baked beans. Even the bread (white or brown) was similar to bread we get at home (Perth).....Bali bread seems to be very sweet normally....not here. I believe the Villa Seminyak management are clearly listening and acting on reviewer comments. As other reviewers have said, the location is brilliant....you can walk, ride or "taksi" to all the great Seminyak venues - Legian Beach, brilliant restaurants, bars, and shopping. The Cost of a taksi from villa to Legian Beach was AUD $3 !! An absolute dining must do is Ultimo's.....incredible Italian menu and food offering small and large entree's and mains at seriously ridiculous prices. The only problem with Bali is the cost of wine which is so highly taxed for some reason and therefore unbelievably expensive. Conversely spirits are cheap. Try a Balinese lemon squash because the sugar syrup comes in a separate small glass...you can drink them with or without sugar...would like to see this introduced in Australia. VS may not suit everyone....teenage groups looking for multiple pools, multiple restaurants and bus loads of like minded teenagers on a single estate might be disappointed. It is perfect for honeymooners, a couple wanting a private getaway, families, or a getaway for friends who have reached the stage where privacy and quiet time have taken priority over full time yahooing. Having said that, the adjacent villa had 4 female "leavers" who sounded like they were really enjoying their villa....they could get out amongst it when they wanted to but come home to a safe, private villa when they'd had enough ! My mate has been to Bali on 10 previous occasions and asked me to say that Villa Seminyak stands head and shoulders above other places he has stayed at.....it is great value for money ! The VS massage staff need special mention. We just couldn't get enough of the 3 hour full body massages ($69 US) by highly trained gracious Balinese ladies. The massage rooms are brilliant. The beautiful fragrance, soft music and the skilled hands of the masseur have you completely relaxed and trouble free in minutes. You won't believe how quickly 3 hours can expire ! My mate had 3 x 3 hr massages in 4 days ! Finally...the staff are just sensational ! Such gracious, kind people. Every staff member wanted our stay to be perfect and that's exactly what we had ! You must visit this wonderful Bali accommodation if Seminyak is your destination !!!!

Room Tip: Choose a villa option if there is 4 or more travellers

My partner and I stayed at Seminyak Villa and Spa in August 2013 and couldn't have been happier. We initially booked the Jacuzzi Villa however on arrival were told we were upgraded to a two bedroom Villa free of charge. It was great, we had our own pool and the room and outside area were lovely. Both the Villa and our pool were cleaned everday and I loved that the dining room table and kitchen are were outside.

Everyone at the villa were so friendly, we were welcomed with a smile from everyone from reception, guests relations and the cleaners. It was a great area too, right in the heart of Seminyak and near Bintang Supermarket. It is a little further from the beach but still not far, you can either walk, take a taxi or they have shuttle buses running from the Villa.

I would recommend coming in August as the weather is at its best, hot but not too hot, humidity bearable and very little rain. Coming from an Australian winter it was amazing to wake up each morning to sunshine in our own private villa and pool, I recommend it to any couple.

The only small negative would be that the buffet breakfast wasn't great, but that didn't bother us we just had breakfast out as there are some great places to eat in Seminyak. I would highly recommend Sea Circus, Revolver or Grocer and Grind. I also really enjoyed La Plancha for sunset drinks, Motel Mexicola for drinks/food and Mamasan and Sardine for some of the most loveliest dining experiences I've had.

A place that I will Definitely be back again! Great staff at the reception and efficient too. Love our jetted tub Villa room at 303 situated just beside the pool , love it that It's So private and quiet.. relaxing place to be in. One thing to comment abt this villa also is that the villa provide bicycle rentle service @ usd10 which is reasonable for a day which is So convenient for us to ride in and out of our jetted Villa and out the road.
As for breakfast at the Villa, not much of a variety but still decent! I'm a big fan of eggs- omelette sunny sideup etcc , It's abit disappointing for the eggs as it was too dry for the omelette..

Overall this Villa is great place to stay in- good value for money too!

We had a group of 4 girlfriends stay here for what was an amazing 9 nights! Upon arrival we were upgraded from a Royal Pool Villa to an Executive Villa. When you arrive into your Villa it is a whole new world, we had a beautiful garden, huge and cosy outdoor area including an Ipod Dock which came with an AUX cord because our IPhone 5's did not fit the socket and most importantly FILTERED WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our Bedrooms were soooo spacious and the bathrooms allow 4 girls to be getting ready at once with no shortage of space which is a rarity!

We cannot thank the staff enough for their beautiful service, constant driving us in the buggy and the friendly and safe atmosphere.

Anyone who is looking to come to Bali needs to stay here :)

My stay at Villa Seminyak Estate and Spa has been priceless. ALL staff are extremely polite and helpful. My stay in the Deluxe Pool Villa was amazing so nice to come back after a busy day from shopping or a tour and relax in a private pool. Rooms are always clean and tidy. Would highly recommend to any of my friends to stay here if ever they come to Bali. Ill be saving my pennies to come back for sure.

I think travellers need to be careful with reviews of this villa estate because there are several different types of accommodation and there is a big difference between them.

My wife and I stayed at a Royal Villa with another couple and it was great. Very relaxing, very comfortable and nicely secluded with a private pool. Due to a booking mix-up, we were nearly "upgraded" to an Executive Villa instead of the Royal Villa that we booked. There was no comparison. The Royal Villa was definitely superior to the Executive Villa in it's size, pool and general layout and we insisted on getting a Royal Villa that we had paid for. Our villa had a water cooler, which was great and certainly much better than having to rely on bottles of drinking water, which you can usually never get enough of. Beds were very comfortable.

The location is peaceful but still reasonably close to the restaurants and shopping of Seminyak. It is not very close to the beach but that did not bother us. The staff is very friendly but the hotel facilities are quite basic. There is a 60 metres long lagoon pool where pool rooms open directly onto. This pool is great for doing laps. Breakfast is good. We did not dine at the hotel restaurant as there are many dining options in Seminyak. It is pretty quiet in the hotel at night.

If you want a peaceful getaway, we can recommend a Royal Villa.

Room Tip: We had Royal Villa number 4.

I must stress that I can only make comment on the pool rooms, probably the cheaper end of this resort.
This property takes up quite a large area with a lot of secluded villas which I am sure would be lovely but the rooms around the pool were very basic, while it sounds fantastic to be able to open your living room doors and jump straight into the pool it certainly restricts you in other areas, that is, if you want to just step outside for some fresh air....not possible, meeting up with friends around your unit also not feasible, if you had small children doors would always have to be closed.
The rooms were obvoisly designed by an architect who wanted wow factor but missed the point.
Downstairs is very basic and no where to really flop for that afternoon nap or simply relax in between exploring Bali.....the bedroom is perched upstairs and has no other function other than, well, sleeping and you know what, no toilet which is a nuisance in the middle of the night and wardrobes etc downstairs.
The resort tried hard by offering different events at night etc...as the resort is not close to town they must lose a lot of guests who taxi into town and stay, they deserve credit for trying but nothing we saw enticed us to stay in when there is so much offer in Seminyak.
The location is not terribly convenient, sure you can walk out to the shops but these are not the main ares of seminyak, clothing boutiques etc not many bars, restaurants etc you need a taxi to take you closer to the beach area for most of the activity, no big deal I guess and just a few bucks but not as good as being able to stroll out to these places.
Had a massage in the spa and it was fine.
Breakfasts were very basic.....even decided to skip their brekky's for nicer options in town.
All the staff were pleasant and did the best they could for a basic and slightly dated resort, if you are after luxury with close access to everything would suggest you keep researching.

Room Tip: Avoid the pool deluxe rooms if you are looking for comfort and relaxation.
