“Designer home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

What a place!

Check in was so quick and easy and within minutes i was driven to the villa. I booked the 'standard' villa which was absolutely HUGE, nothing standard about it.. can only describe it as feeling like you own a little house in Bali. The garden space is HUGE and the plunge pool is just great after a hot day exploring the island.

The design concept is open plan, yet the bathroom offers lots of privacy so don't worry here. Even the butler pantry is well designed!

The food is lovely and staff are very accommodating. Spa is over priced but the massage is excellent.

For what they charge, once again it's an absolute bargain!

This place is right in the heart of Seminyak right next to the W resort all the resturants and bars just minutes away. The staff and this place are fantastic from the drivers to front reception all amazing and speak really good english in my eyes anyway. From the booking right down to when we left the service was excellent. We had read some reviews and heard that certain villas were a bit noisy so when booking requested certain room and got it within a few emails back and forth all arranged. Also when we got picked up at airport we had drinks and food supplied in car with wet towels really lovely. Then when we arrived which was early about 10am we got checked into our room straight away so buy 11.30am I was in my villa by the pool service top notch. Even when we got home they sent us a system to review them which I did and that was great. First I would like to thank all staff at the Kayana your warm smiles and service are fantastic. But I would like to give a special mention to Agung who did most of the service in our villa your attention to detail is exceptional your just a really nice guy. The girls on front reception you ROCK just will do anything they can for you. The ladies in the SPA you ROCK just great must have a massage pricing for villas not bad at all quite happy. Drivers who picked us and took us everywhere full of information and just really nice. The villas in this place are just amazing couldn't fault a thing. I did mention with my review little things they could improve on because what happens is everything is done so seamless when you are there that when one little thing goes wrong it sticks out but we are talking like maybe not getting your glasses replaced one day just silly things. Because everything is just done so well but all you have to do is call the butler and then they'll bring it so no issues really at all. The food is really good as well cocktails ok but could do better but not bad. But we mainly mixed are own drinks anyway so alls good. We love you Kayana and will be back.

Room Tip: rooms away from the W resort road a bit less noisy Do one bedroom villa worth it to upgrade.

We travelled to Bali with family and friends, including small children, staying 7 nights at the Kayana. I loved everything about the villas. The staff were always so friendly and helpful. The villas and the grounds were kept immaculate. Walking into the grounds was like walking into another world and we had no problems whatsoever with noise from the road or nightclubs. I would highly recommend the Kayana to anyone travelling to Bali.

This is our 2nd honeymoon and plus our 1st wedding anniversary plus my husband birthday and I decided to spend our special moment together at THE KAYANA BALI. I did not regret at all coz it's the most peaceful villa I had ever been, with the beautiful landscape and warm and friendly staff, I really feel like a queen. The spa that we had as a couple is the balinese masssage and it really relax our body. The wifi connection was superb! Thanks to the front desk staff Ms Ika for welcoming us.And also the friendly and warm General Manager Mr Arief Ali and his Sales Manager Mr Nanda. We will deftly return to stay at the Kayana and love our Villa 806.

Our stay at the Kayana was a very pleasant experience. The staff, the villas, the amentities, the butlers, the courtesy bus, everything was very good.
If I return to Bali I would definately consider staying at the Kayana again.

Room Tip: Ask for close to reception if you don't like walking. Aleternatively ask for Villas 820s for tra...

We stayed here 7 nights. The villas are large and great location in seminyak. I found the girls at reception extremely helpful and the service overall was excellent!

Improvements- the WIFI in our room 820 was terrible and would drop out or not connect at all for hours. It was slow when it decided to connect so this needs improving.

We were not overly impressed with the food at the restaurant and decided not to eat the breakfast on our last 4 days as the good was Much better at the restaurants around seminyak.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful Villas set in tranquil surroundings away from the madness of Seminyak roads! Lovely big beds, spacious living area both inside and out, big bathroom and great plunge pool. Designed very well and all the butlers are friendly and helpful.

Loved having breakfast in the privacy of own villa in outdoor living area. They were very accommodating and warm towards our 18 month old baby.

The only minor downside is reception staff at lobby, who are lovely and very friendly but, they have no knowledge of local area or have any recommendations on what to do in bali. On our first night they sent us to an awful restaurant (bikku) a classic tourist trap. Secondly, I was very keen to see some Balinese dance, they look baffled and couldn't suggest anywhere. Luckily some other guests pointed us in the right direction.

It was fortunate I made a list of restaurants I wanted to visit, and excursions I wanted to do, otherwise they are unable to help in this regard.

Overall a fantastic villa experience of total privacy and tranquility, do not hesitate to book but just do your research for restaurants and things to do!

P.s - also visited the sister hotel Samaya, beautiful with much larger and luxurious villas if the budget stretches! For us, Kayana was perfect!
