I stayed 4 nights at 3 BR Villa (July 2022) . Rooms and bathrooms quite big with semi outdoor showers. AC too windy even already adjusted the fan level. Some section of the Wooden floor need maintenance, made noise when we walked. Pool is esthetic but too small for swimming and the depth is 1.6 to 2.2 mtr. Garden is nice and beautiful. Love the 2nd floor , big sofa and big TV. Living room is the best part, view pool and garden. Good Breakfast served at villa. Walking distance to some restaurants, mini market, laundry and massage.
What a beautiful tranquil stay at the The Layer.. Villa no 12 3 bedroom was away from busy streets beautifully furnished very comfy beds, pool perfect. Including breakfast in the restaurant which was best start to the day and staff absolutely beautiful people from front of house to Laura in the restaurant who was so kind and helpful her english perfect, and the barista’s we’re so accommodating for us fussy coffee drinkers. Bbq one night in Villa was amazing . Cooked by the chefs. Many great restaurant choices within walking distance. Thankyou The Layer x
In April we have experienced an unforgettable holiday with friends in Villa 15 of The Layar. Villa 15 is a very beautiful and almost overwhelming design villa that forms part of a luxury resort, right in the heart of Seminyak. Bali's best-known restaurants are within walking distance, as are boutiques, galleries, gourmet shops and a broad choice of other stores. If we didn't want to eat outdoors, we could still enjoy great food all day long, with a breakfast menu that was available from 7 to 11am. We even had the option to hire a private chef who advised a specially tailored menu for us to enjoy 'at home' in our villa. Petitenget Beach is just a stone's throw away, where we had a good time chatting with friendly locals. It is clear to us why this beach is famous for its surf breaks and sunset bars. Because we are golf enthusiasts, we indulged ourself here. After all, the most beautiful golf courses can be found in Bali. We loved the courses; it is like playing golf in a botanical garden, especially at Bali Handara. The disadvantage of that course however, is that it is not as near as the other courses. Every time we entered our villa, we were impressed by the beautiful architecture and interior, combined with its open concept roofs. The villa is landscaped with a beautiful private garden, a large swimming pool, a kitchen and it has two spacious bedroom suites. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with complete privacy and air conditioning. Our bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed very much the private garden shower that connects to the guest bedroom. The design, location and five-star service provided by the resort staff made sure we had a wonderful time. This villa offered all the luxury of privacy, personal space and experience away from the crowds we could expect. It was a safe and wonderful place for an unforgettable holiday for us.…
Villas are at least 10++ years old and poor maintained. Spider webs everywhere and found a big one in our room. Showers are mostly outdoors and the wood on the floors are falling apart. Service staff are extremely slow which might be because they are short handed. Toilet bowl requires you to press for 5-6 seconds to flush. One of the rooms toilet bowl broke down two days in a row. There’s a lack of Aircon in the living room which causes you to run into the Aircon rooms instead of lounging with your family in the living area. WiFi is barely working and the room TV’s are just for show, not working. You’re better off picking a better maintained villa somewhere else. Location deserves a point but nothing more than that.
These are amazing modern architectural villas , very beautiful and above that very comfortable, clean and practical. Been staying here for couple of months , the bedroom is very spacious, the bed very comfortable and the sheet extremely soft . Very clean bathroom. The pool I love it . I had great services , cleaning , garder and pool guy . All very friendly and clean . The front desk staff always so helpful. Veryyyy safe place and great location so close to everything . One if my best experiences in Bali in a Villa .
Booked a 3 bedroom villa with another family. Whilst the villa is nice and strategically located, the service is appalling. The rooms were dusty when we first checked in, had to borrow a broom to sweep our rooms. The linen smells. They provide you with a whatsapp number for communication but any msges after 5pm every day will only be replied the following morning at 9am, what happens if there is an emergency late at night? The provide another number for you to call but that didn't help when something happened on our last night which I will explain later. Staff comes over for housekeeping after 12pm. Breakfast selection is limited and the food was mediocre at best. We requested for our breakfast to be served at 6.30am on our last morning because of an early checkout. Person in charge said it can't be done because the chef only starts at 7am and can only serve our breakfast at 7.45am. She even sent us a screenshot of their conversation to prove that the chef can't cook so early. Why is there even a need for validation? It was a simple request! On our last night, the air conditioner in my room died at 1am. I called the number provided by the management, hoping someone can attend to our emergency. Turns out that number connects us to the security guard. Told the guard what happened and he said "try turning it back on again with the remote control" I told him the problem is not with the remote but with the air conditioning and how are we suppose to sleep without one? He said he doesn't know anything and he will call someone from the management and he will call me back. Nope, that call never happened. I couldn't go back to sleep and we had to take the clothes off our young children because the heat was unbearable. 5 star villa indeed. Why is there no one from the front office who can help us in the middle of the night? Complained to the whatsapp number and i suggested to them to have someone on standby who can help when such problems arise. I don't expect someone to find the air conditioner late at night but at least someone who could provide solutions, like a standing fan? They said they have someone on standby and that is the security guard. Isn't that a given?? How is the security guard gonna help with such problems??? Again they said the front desk staff only work until 5pm because of the safety protocols during this pandemic. This only proves 1 thing. You are in our care till 5pm. Anything after that, you will have to soldier through the night and hopefully make it till 9am the following morning to whatsapp for help. Take your money elsewhere, we are clearly not their priority.…
We've been staying for 40 days in The Layar and it was unforgettable time. This villa complex one of the best in Bali. Very good location, modern design with open space, large pool, perfect service - we haven't any complaints. Thanks a lot to all staff for breathtaking memories.
The Layar is located very conveniently near Jalan Kayu Aya. A peaceful and short walk to the restaurants and shops indeed. We love the villa’s design, the cute mezzanine, integrated sound system around the villa, spacious and super big bathtub and the warm service from the staff. Areas of improvement is on the kitchen equipment. The villa was not equipped with pans and pots for cooking and we have to reserve to borrow the equipment (quantity is limited so we did not get ours during our stay). The complimentary breakfast was actually quite nice, many options to choose from, complete with bread, fruits, juices and most importantly served always on time as per our request. Kudos to the staff for the wonderful service at all times.
We were totally blown away by our stay at The Layar. The villa itself was magical. Totally spotless, thoughtfully designed and every detail was thought of and catered to by the utterly charming staff. Honestly could not sing higher praises for this complex of villas and cannot wait time come back.
We booked to stay at the Layar to celebrate a friend’s baby shower this month. Cannot recommend this property enough! Staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to meet our requests. The location is perfect - within walking distance to excellent eateries, yet far enough away from the main road to enjoy the peacefulness of the property. The aesthetics of the villa are stunning and we couldn’t of chosen a better location to celebrate such a special time! Thank you!
