The Kayana is really a nice place with very comfortable villas (with private dipping pool) in good condition and extremely friendly and professional staff. Any of our requests was handled with top priority and to our full satisfaction. The villas are very well designed with enough space and a large bathroom. It will soon be necessary to renew electrical appliances (TV and iPod loudspeaker were cracking so that we did not use them) and the air condition in one villa (we stayed there twice in two villas) was making noise beyond normal functioning.
The small garden and walls around the villa makes the Kayana a very nice 'private' place - with only one issue: the construction work around the Kayana creates a lot of noise without interruption. The entire Kayana structure is beautifully designed (Garden, walls, lightning) and maintained.
We also liked the restaurant and the food (delicious) and again the flexibility and professionalism of the staff. What's also great is that very next (left side after exiting the lobby) is a great Deli with a very delicious food and a mini mart (7-11 style) on the other side. Opposite the Kayana is a good place for massages and plenty of restaurants around (the W ; Ku De Ta ; Luciola).
If you are looking for a beach, then the Seminyak is not the right place. It used to be a nice beach here (10-20 years ago) but now the beach is extremely dirty (plastic and other waste as far as you can see) and there is so much construction that there is simply no quiet place. We love to walk on beaches but as you really have to watch every step on the Seminyak beach to avoid stepping on some waste its simply no fun.
The Kayana has parking for 4 cars (we had a car) and there was never a problem to park there. Driving can be a bit stressful but I would still recommend a car (good experience with balicarfinder.com) to get around and travel to other more quiet places if you are in Bali.
One final point: stay away from the villas next to the W entrance road (on the right side from entrance) as there is considerable traffic to/from W that adds to the construction noise level.
