“Simply awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We just got back from a 12 day trip to Bali a few days ago. Although The One was the least expensive of the 3 villas we stayed at during our trip (also stayed in Ubud & Nusa Dua), it was our favorite. The villas are huge (I think we stayed in villa #4, which was a regular-size villa), with a swimming pool large enough to swim short laps in & it was a refreshing break from the heat. We spent a good deal of time relaxing poolside or in the huge outdoor area (complete w/ day bed & dining area). It was so quiet that we felt like the only ones there - we knew there were other people b/c we'd occasionally see them in the common areas, but we never really heard them.

The interior was very tastefully decorated, had central A/C & a comfy bed w/ mosquito net. I did not see any bugs when we were there, which is slightly amazing due to the tropical environment! Also loved the outdoor bathroom & shower area.

There are no restaurants, but a good room service selection menu - if you want anything, just call reception & the food was delivered to your villa within 30 minutes or so. We ordered from Cafe Degan a few times...delicious! They make breakfast at your villa (included in the rate & so big that we often were full all the way to late afternoon tea time!) & complementary tea/cookies were also served at the villa anytime you wanted in the afternoon. The One is about a 5 minute drive away from Seminyak - don't let the distance deter you - we loved the quiet & privacy away from crazy Seminyak & staff will provide you with a complementary ride into town any time you want. You have to catch a cab back, but it's only about $5 USD. If you call The One, they would probably come pick you up, but we didn't want to wait or get hit with phone charges.

This place is a fantastic value & you get a lot out of it - excluding room charges (we found a good deal on Expedia), for our 4 nights/5 days we spent there, we paid only a little over $225 USD, which included about 3 or 4 meals delivered, two 1-hour massages at our villa (done poolside), minibar charges (beers are only about $1 each & we drank a lot of them!), a full-day tour of temples & transportation to our next villa in Ubud (which included another full-day tour) & probably some other things I'm forgetting.

All of the staff was so wonderful - nothing was too much trouble & they were so kind. It seemed like the staff-to-guest ratio was 1-1. I actually got a little teary-eyed when it was time to leave!

This was the first and best stay we had in Bali. The villa's are absolutely beautiful and even bigger than you see in the foto's. The design is beautiful! The staff is friendly and super helpfull. There is a free shuttle service and if it's not available they will pay a taxi for you. There are only six villa's.
We arranged a scooter, which is very good option, even though traffic can be hectic in Seminyak. It's cheap and it gives you a lot of freedom.

It is close to a lot of great spots like Biku (lunch&high tea), W retreat, Potato Head and my favourite restaurant Sardine.

Breakfast is amazing, great fresh fruitjuices and a lot of options to choose from.
The bed is extremely big and comfortable. The pool was perfect for a morning swim and afternoon hangouts, when they serve afternoon tea with pancakes.
I wish I could go back!!

After 15 years of traveling to Bali on holiday we thought we had seen the best Bali has to offer, the One villa changed all that, in a nutshell, it was the largest pool, living and sleeping area we have ever stayed in, so much comfort and service at a similar price we have paid in the past for what we thought at the time was the best.
The staff were amazing,one evening we were going out for dinner and the cars were all out,because there vehicle wasn't available they promptly ordered a taxi and paid for it, that's service! my wife had Bali belly and I had to call a Doctor at 4;30am this was not a problem, doctor promptly arrived saved the day 12 hrs later right as rain, then that afternoon a bouquet of flowers was delivered to the room by Oka the Manager from himself and the staff, I can just say everything you see and read in the positive is completely true,P.S ring villa direct for good deal.

The best villa we have stayed in. Cannot recommend highly enough. From the stunning reception area, to the neat, tidy and totally gorgeous walkway to each villa and then the peace and tranquility of the villa itself, we could not have asked for more. One of the best beds we've ever slept in, pillows included and I am very, very fussy with my pillow. Wonderful friendly and accomodating staff who showed that nothing was a problem for them (not that there were any problems but they just showed that basically they would accomodate any extra wishes). When looking this villa up, do not be turned off by the length of the street leading to it as drop off and pickup within the Seminyak area are complimentary and besides we walked home one night and it was totally fine, just probably wouldnt want to do it in the heat of day. A big thank you to Putu who made my husband a yummy, spicy Indonesian chicken soup one day.......it was awesome, and luckily I've found the recipe in amongst my cookbooks. Thank you to each and everyone of the staff, you made our week long break the perfect ending to our Bali break.

The One Villa - Seminyak had us in awe from the moment we stepped inside, courteous & attentive service by Oka the Hotel Manager & his team we were immediately cocooned from the outside world & captivated by the charm of our villa with its authentic Balinese pavilion design inclusive of your own stunning private pool.

The elegant open air garden bathroom with access by a spacious dressing room provided a sense of tranquility & privacy, a professional doubles massage in your villa extended the sense of exclusivity which is typical & expected from this property.

The ultimate breakfast in villa dining experience provisioned by their own chef was an absolute highlight ! Outside of the high walls of your secret private villa is an elevated generous lawned garden which eludes a space of tranquility overlooking a paddy field, beyond to the upmarket resort The W by the sea just 500metres distance away.....

Private transfers are at your whim, restaurant recommendations delivered epicurean delights & the possibility of being offered the best table in the house - as was our experience at La Lucciola an absolute Bali icon & not to be missed experience on the beach a mere 5 mins away.....

Refresh your senses in their recommendations & indulge yourself in the time you know you deserve !

Evenings are surrounded by verdant mood lit gardens with turndown service that is a villa signature with overflowing curtains billowing over your oversized bed captivating the sense of romance & inviting blissful sleep ....

The gods smiled upon us during our stay & upon departing we saw rivers of tears as though they knew we were sad to leave this very special sanctuary we had called home for several days as we weaved our way through the tapestry of Balinese everyday life to the airport.......

Highly recommended, as an international flight attendant travelling this amazing world of ours I have the amazing good fortune to experience high quality hotels/ resorts in my everyday, happy to share with you what is the best there is that's out there for you to indulge in another place at another pace - enjoy!

This hotel is not bad at all for the price. The service team take good care of you upon you arrival. From check in to check out, they will ensure that you are comfortable throughout. I could not believe how sweet and friendly the service team are. I felt comfortable immediately upon arriving at this beautiful resort. The rooms are also very clean. We did have one day where there were what looked like mud stains on our sheets. We called and they changed within 5 minutes and were extremely apologetic. We were happy with everything at this place and will go back.
