Arrived home yesterday, 26 Nov, 2012 after spending 7 days at the Sun Island Villas, Seminyak. The staff were wonderful and could not have been more pleasant or helpful, from the gardeners to the front office. The facilities are spotless. The location is right in the middle of the hustle and bustle however upon walking past the front gate the serenity washes over you.
The private plunge pool was surprisingly refreshing given the air temperature, the gardens are beautiful and the spa excellent (all be it a cheaper services can be found within walking distance - still only $20 AUD for hour massage). Happy hour is 3pm to 7pm, two for one cocktails at $3 - $4.
The food was lovely, although the experience of eating at a variety of restaurants more enjoyable. Sun Island is walking distance to numerous great restaurants, a walk down Double Six Road to the beach is easy with a variety of foods to be enjoyed along the beach front. (The Italian restaurant on the corner of the left side street walking towards the beach on Double Six Road was superb).
If you can't be bothered or it is too hot to walk a taxi will take you anywhere local for under $3. (request the meter as the driver will be keen to negotiate a price as the meter is the cheaper way to go).
The bedroom window had double solid sliding door which blocked out light and the couple of local roosters, great for total relaxation.
Loved the week and would highly recommend a stay at Sun Island.
