Stayed with family and friends for 7 night in a two bedrooms last month. The overall experience was great, however there are rooms for improvement. 1. Location is excellent, it is only 10 mins walk to the eat street, and takes about 5 mins ride anywhere within seminyak. 2. When we first stepped in the villa, we felt the villa was a bit tired. Given the living room is in an open concept, the furniture is a bit tired. The bathroom has water stains and water pressure wasn’t great either. There was one night one of our room did not have hot water. The kitchen wasn’t perfectly clean, there are stains on the sink. The upside is the sounding system, speaker is all ard the villa which is perfect! 3. The swimming pool is in good size with sun exposure, but the water was cold especially when there was no sun. I am not comfortable to let my 3yo boy to swim too long in the water. We can only jump into the water by noon time when there was great sunlight. They provide two floaties which was great! 4. Good selection on the breakfast, but quality wasn’t as good as other comments. The coffee was average. We ordered our own coffee outside (Revolver was great!). I spent one day to have breakfast in the restaurant, quality definitely better. There was one day we requested for early breakfast before 7, they have sent a breakfast box which was pretty bad, we didn’t eat it in the end. 5. Overall service was great, they have this WhatsApp number which make everything so efficient! The driver who sent us back to the airport was very friendly too! With this price range, I thought the layar could have done better. But having said that my friends and I had a great time in Bali!

Dear Potatomary, I am so pleased that you had a great stay overall, and thank you for the points for improvement. On a personal note I am disappointed that you didn't rate our coffee as we have our own specialty blend and like to think I am somewhat of a coffee aficionado. To your other points - we will be looking at refreshing the furniture and soft furnishings shortly, and please do accept my apologies for the less than perfectly clean sink. We will also look at the quality of the complimentary breakfast boxes. Thank you again for the review they are appreciated. Andrew J Leith General Manager

This property has its own charm , nice long driveway up to the villas with ample of room. The villas are placed adjacent to each other and we had taken 2 villas - 5 bedrooms for 4 families including children. Very nice homely villas with good Butler service a home away from home . Villas are self sufficient they have a baby pool as well as a Jacuzzi. It was not very hot so we enjoyed our 5 days stay nicely. Italian Food was good.

4 of us stayed for 5 nights and overall the service from the team was excellent. friendly and efficient, thank you I deduced one star for several issues the furniture is getting old and a bit rundown, could do with spring clean (arm of the sofa very worn) we had to call the front desk 4-5 times to get the wifi sorted. The staff who came were lovely, but this was very inconvenient as we couldn't get wifi in the bedrooms 3/5 days towels are getting quite old, due to the number of washes. They certainly weren't dirty, but they weren't new either Overall, great staff, great location and a nice space that needs some TLC

The stay at Layar couldn't be better. Special requests were made upon booking to help arrange for surprise proposal. Not only is the hotel beautiful, the staff attentiveness is top notch. We made so many requests and they deliver it from the day we checked in till the day we left, impressive! Also, on the proposal day, the staff sent an army to help the gentlemen with the set-up - Thank you Layar team, from reservation, to guest services, to butler, housekeeping, F&B team!

Best part about the Layar is the friendly and helpful staff. Always smiling and always ready to assist,. Always felt welcome. Kudos to all of you. The villa was comfortable but perhaps need a bit of refreshing. As a non-Balinese person, just not used to the open air villa and bathroom. Also a bit inconvenient when the sink, the bathtub and the shower are a distance from one another.
