“Truly heaven on earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

This was our first time in Bali and after much searching, asking and comparing, my sister and I decided that Pradha Villas were the way to go. As soon as our driver picked us up from the airport, we knew we had made the right decision. Our concierge, Dwa, greeted us with his smile, promptly took our luggage and escorted us out of the airport and on the way to a memorable stay in Seminyak.

As soon as we arrived at our Villa we were overwhelmed with how beautiful and serene it was. The pictures do not do this villa justice, it has an abundance of space, sunshine and is very clean. The location is unbeatable, only minutes walk to some of the best places around Seminyak.

We were a party of 3 girls and had been upgraded to the 2 bedroom villa. But let me tell you that unlike the previous review, we were not complaining! There is so much space that we didn't know what to do with it! These villas are huge and worth every penny! I am disapointed that the previous reviewer would give this amazing place such a bad wrap. The staff are amazing and overly attentive, we never had a problem with the mosquito repellent (if anything it makes the experience even better as our villa was mosquito free all week). We were more than happy to be upgraded to the 2 bedroom apartment even though they locked one of the bedrooms. Seriously, you can't expect the Villa to pay for the extra servicing of an additional room if all you have paid for was a one bedroom (don't be so greedy!)

Our stay was made memorable by the beautiful staff at Pradha Villa, nothing was ever too much ( we had requests for i pod cords, international adapters, scissors, extra sunbeds, pillows etc etc and on each occasion our requests were fulfilled within minutes of asking). We made friends with many of the lovely staff, especially our conceirge Dwa, he was attentive to every need and took care of us. We already miss the smiles of our beautiful friends at Pradha Villas and we are already booking our next trip there!

Let me start off by saying that Seminyak was our last stop in Bali so we were really looking forward to this villa that we ended up choosing OVER the W Hotel (terrible idea!). All of our other villa stays in Bali were amazing, so we expected this to at least be the same.

When we arrived, they told us that they were putting us in a 2 BR villa since they were out of 1 BR. Excited for the upgrade, we went to the villa only to find that the second bedroom was locked. We asked if we could take a look at it, and they let us peek in and locked it back up. We decided to go up to the front desk and ask if it was possible to open up the second room for us since 1) there are 3 of us currently crammed into one room (we paid for an extra cot); 2) no one was using the other room and it would cost nothing to them to open the room up for us to make our customer experience better. Their answer? No, unless we pay up. We tried to explain that it wasnt our fault they stuck us in a 2 BR villa b/c they ran out of rooms. We explained that we received great customer service everywhere else and that it would make us a lot happier, but they were just focused on money and mentioned a contract with Agoda that doesn't allow them to upgrade people, which is complete crap since I've used Agoda before and have been upgraded free of charge without me asking. We were all angry by their service, and asked them if they cared about their TripAdvisor reviews and if we gave them a terrible rating, and I kid you not that the front desk lady straight out said, "No."

Aside from the unfriendly front desk people, the rest of the staff needs better training too, but not as much as the front desk lady. They also proceeded to spray mosquito repellant in our bedrooms, which made 2/3 of us sick afterwards. Breakfast, which was served to our villa, was left on our table for hours after eating.

There is a lack of attention to detail in the villa too. If you are looking to pay $250 a night for a mediocre villa and terrible waitstaff, then I would recommend this. Otherwise, I say to stay away. I don't understand how this place got 4.5 stars, but I'm assuming these reviewers must have been blind sighted.

I told the manager on the last day that I would recommend all the other places I stayed at in Bali to my friends, but not Pradha, and she said "Ok" and seemed fine with it.

A return stay with Pradha villa. This time around we came with another couple friend and stayed in their 2 bedroom villa. We've tried out 6 accoms in Bali and feel that Pradha is certainly one of the BEST options in Seminyak in her price category. Here's what we love about Pradha:
1) The design and furnishing of the property. The villa is well designed. Although this is not a new villa, it is well designed with much thought put into quality furnishing/ finishings (proper timber used), care has been put into the upkeep of the place. You feel relaxed and at home here.
2) Location. Great location, near enough to main food/shopping areas, but tucked away enough so you don't hear the sound of traffic.
3) The Bathroom. Again well designed, roomy bathrooms with his/hers sinks, wardrobe, bathrub, and rainshower with open air well aboe.
4) Pool/Garden. You have a full 275sqm for the two bedroom villa including the grounds, with a large private pool. Again well designed living area. You can slide open your bedroom door and walk straight into the pool!
5) Service. Reception staff speak good English and are ever ready to help. They were very prompt and attentive. When they were cleaning the room when we were checking out, the staff found my digital camera and came running to the reception with it. Thank you!

The only areas for improvement are: i) Breakfast portions could be more generous, compared to the offerings of other villas, Pradha could certain look into this. ii) free shuttle service stops at 6pm and they only have 1 van. If that is out picking up customers at the airport then you need to get your own taxi. iii) Pillows are kind too 'high' and they only have one type of pillow. These are small suggestions for Pradha to consider :)

All in we truly enjoyed our stay here and will certainly return again. Thank you Pradha villa!

Room Tip: We have only stayed in the two bedroom villa and we love it.

After Ubud, we stayed here for a few days in Villa no.2 & it was a pleasant stay.
PLUS points: Beautiful villa, lovely pool, well furnished inside & outside, warm & pleasant feeling. Comfortable bathroom space, large living room space. Away from main road so its a bit quieter. Responsive & attentive staff.
Negatives: Breakfast so-so, could be a bit more generous with croissants & danishes. Toilet bowl in the smaller room got stuck on the last day. (inconsiderate people flushing rubbish in?)

Located secluded in the main Seminyak area, this place is a perfect place to get away. You won't feel that you're just a minute away from beach, shopping, dining, etc, so it's a perfect combination! The staff are very helpful, friendly, wonderful breakfast. Private pool and big private lounge for relax or if you have friends coming to visit. It's really a "must" place to stay.

This year was the 3rd time that we stayed in Pradha villas... the first time when we had our honeymoon in 2006. It is a very amazing villa..very private place... Just woke up in the morning we could go swimming right away just opened the door and splaasshhhh..... :) our daughter loved it very much!! she keeps asking when we go back there again.. The room service was also very efficient, the food was delicious .. and the staffs were very friendly and helpful.. And the beach was really nearby.
Next year we will be coming there again.... so it's enough to say that villa Pradha is recomended to stay...

tot ziens and grotjes uit Nederland..

My husband & I spent a week in a one bedroom luxury villa & wow it was amazing. The minute we walked in it just blew us away. It was just so beautiful. The staff are fantastic, beautiful breakfasts & we actually ate dinner in our room everynight as well & that too was great.
For the most relaxing time ever, we would recommend everyone to stay at Pradha - you couldn't ask for anything more.
