“Better than expected - Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband, best friend and I couldn’t believe how lovely it was when we walked in to our Villa No 7. From the friendly reception staff to the attention from every other staff member from the beginning right to the end of our 7 nights, 13 Oct to 20 Oct. Can’t believe anyone could put in really bad reviews. Loved the open plan kitchen, dining, lounge room opening out to the wonderful pool. So private and we felt very safe and secure. The two bedrooms are separate buildings and designed very well. Spacious bedroom with TV/DVD (didn’t use it though) with a spacious bathroom. Only downfall was the bed was a bit hard, but we travel all over Asia and this is very common in every country, so are used to that. Still slept OK though. Don’t forget your mozzy spray! Great having late check out available as well.
Relaxed by the pool most of each day. Lots of nice restaurants and cafes nearby with Grocer and Grind right on the corner, so went there regularly for coffee’s. We loved Chanti Restaurant, our favourite in Seminyak. Pradha is around the corner from Seminyak Square, 5 minutes from the beach and lots of lovely shops nearby. My husband surfed every morning and got some good breaks some days. We enjoyed the breakfast each day, having it brought to the room was a lovely treat and the staff were so friendly and we felt like we had known them all for ages! Catered for my allergies to some foods. Thank you for making us feel at home. Keep all the staff, they are wonderful, each and every one of them. Free shuttle service was great, giving an hours notice is quite OK with us to go to Kuta, Legian, airport and other parts of Seminyak.
Massage place called ‘Cool’ around the corner near Grocer and Grind, amazing! Ambience was so tranquil, best massage in Bali, ask for Lilli, she was great. Facial needs a bit of tweaking though. Try their Hair Spa. One hour of head massage and wash and dry. Nearly fell asleep.
We will definitely recommend Pradha Villas to all of our friends and will be back, if not next year, but year after! Thank you for such a lovely holiday!!

There you can feel the real Bali spirit – romance, exotica, leisure, comfort, harmony…
That is in every detail and aspect of the villa.
The personnel is very kind trying to please your and even spoil you.
I would reccoment the manager to add some more options for breakfast which was delicious but unvaried.
Excellent location - very close to the ocean beach, popular bars and restaurants but sparing any urban and nightlife noise.

Room Tip: ask for pictures - you get what you see.

Pradha had the worst customer service I have ever experienced in all my travels. Right from the start when we checked in, the front desk lady seemed upset with us because we had booked a great rate using a deal site. After experiencing genuine smiling faces during our entire Bali trip, her constant frown and negative attitude were quite off-putting When we arrived at our villa, we immediately noticed that it was not well maintained. The empty hot tub was disgusting with rust, mildew, and mold covering the tiles. The pool floor was covered with algae, so we never once got in it. The shower was no better as I was forced to buy shower sandals from a nearby street vendor. When I complained about the condition, the front desk lady replied "why would you complain when you're paying such a cheap price?" Shocked by her reply, I told her I would note that in a negative TripAdvisor review and she bluntly replied "I don't care."

At this point, it's fair to say our stay in Seminyak was ruined, but the terrible service continued. The beds were uncomfortable and our breakfast was always served cold (and frankly didn't taste that good.) Then the dirty dishes would be left out for hours attracting bugs to our open villa. By our last morning, we opted not to get the free breakfast and instead went to a local coffee shop.

On our last day, we requested a late check out (our flight was at 6pm) and were denied. The front desk lady then reminded us twice that we had to be out by 12 noon. Later when we got back from breakfast, she asked when we were leaving and we told her a cab was coming at 12:15. She got upset and told us check out was at 12 not 12:15. We told her we didn't know how long the check out process was so we asked the cab to come a bit later. She relented but once again reminded us to be out by 12. As we were walking out of our villa at 11:58, the phone rang and it was the front desk lady asking us why we hadn't check out yet. Upset, I told her we had 2 minutes left and hung up on her.

Reading through the other reviews on Pradha, I simply don't understand how we had such a wildly different experience. If I could rate Pradha with 0 stars, I would in a heartbeat. Having traveled throughout Bali and experienced amazing customer service at every other villas, I'm surprised Pradha is even able to stay in business.

We booked a 1 bedroom villa but were given a 2 bedroom villa while 1 bedroom remained locked.
The villa was huge, clean and beautiful better than the pictures on tripadvisor. We had a big private pool and jacuzzi and a massive bedroom and bathroom. Excellent service with the staff willing to provide you with what you need. Breakfast was bad but you can choose to eat out in Seminyak.
We had a great time in the villa and were very sad to leave. It's a beautiful property and I will highly recommend it! Bodyworks 2 mins from the villa is the best place for a massage.

There is nothing to fault at Pradha Villas, it is a perfect little hideaway in busy Seminyak. We had villa 5 and were delighted with it. The team, led by Adriana, could not be more helpful. Any requests are acted upon immediately and fulfilled with a big smile. The rooms are excellent with all the amenities you'll ever need ( except of course the hair dryer is hotel standard). The private pool is bliss. Pradha Villas has a homely, welcoming feeling. The attention to detail is very good. Having breakfast delivered to your villa is lovely as is having a massage and pedicure. A really good choice of accommodation if staying in Seminyak.

Room Tip: Villa 5 was perfect. Quiet and away from the main road.

Here we are at the PradHa villas in Seminyak. It is our first family holiday in many years and we were hoping for something truly special and that is exactly what we found!!!!

From the moment we arrived the staff have been extremely competent and friendly. The villas are amazing. We are in # 10 which is all the way down the end of an enchanted driveway. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are clean and functional. The surroundings are well maintained with the lush tropical gardens in and around the villas absolutely beautiful. We even have a resident frog who from time to time reminds us of its presence with its loud croaking.

The pool is clean and the children are having so much fun. We really don't have to leave for anything. The in room massage was excellent. The food has been great and we have had breakfast in the villa every morning.

It was my wife's 50th birthday and the staff helped by arranging a surprise party for us while we were out at dinner nearby. We were with some friends and all came back here for the surprise. It was amazing and a complete surprise. Balloons, flowers, streamers, finger food and cake. So easy and so memorable.

We are in close proximity to everything with easy access to restaurants, shopping and transport.

The fact is I am struggling to find anything remotely negative about PradHa Villas. The only thing I can see is that the family are already planning our next trip to Bali and we have not even checked out yet.
