My husband, 7 year old daughter and I stayed at the Gending Kedis for 5 days. We had the two bedroom pool villa. The service was impeccable, as well as the accommodation. We will definitely be going back again as the ambiance was relaxing and safe. Thank you to the wonderful staff!

Wonderful, luxury villas and a superb staff make this an affordable getaway to Bali. Short ride to the Jimbaran beaches or the key shopping centers is provided by the hotel and no problem at all. But one should stay here simply for the staff. Unfailingly polite and helpful, they made it easy to relax. I can't say enough good things about them.

My Partner and I have just returned from Gending Kedis, and I must admit, I was slightly heartbroken to leave. Upon arrival we were greeted with a chilled towel and an ice cold drink, and from that point on Gending Kedis became my own little Utopia for the following 8 days. We were led to our Prinia villa which was located at the bottom of a considerable number of steps. However, this ended up being a huge advantage, as it meant our villa sat perched on the edge of a gorge. It was so secluded and intimate we felt like we were the only people staying in the entire resort. We were kindly shown around the villa, and we could hardly keep the grins off our faces. It was so beautifully decorated in Balinese style throughout, all the furnishings complimented each other perfectly. The villa was so spacious from the living area with its high vaulted ceiling to the open plan kitchen area that continued out onto the pool area. The bedroom was spacious and bright with a lovely view of the pool and the trees and plants beyond that. The villa was cleaned thoroughly everyday and we were provided with fresh fruit and cupcakes daily. The grounds surrounding the 19 villas were immaculate and alive with so many birds, butterflies and the occasional frog. Walking to breakfast each morning and smelling the Jasmine and other beautiful scents was a pleasure. I could see that the staff work very hard maintaining the vast array of plants and trees, but it still has a very effortless and natural appearance. It was like walking through a tropical forest. We ate most of our evening meals at Jimbaran Bay, but what we did have at Gending Kedis could not be faulted, everything we had was very tasty and beautifully presented. The restaurant staff were exceptional, friendly and welcoming. In fact all the staff at Gending Kedis were above and beyond exceptional, they were all so friendly, always cheerful and willing to help with any query we had. Everything they did was with a smile, something I think I should learn from. We also made use of the complimentary shuttle service to and from the beach which was always available up until 10pm. If you want to relax within a friendly atmosphere with tranquil surroundings, then visiting Gending Kedis is a must.

Room Tip: All of the 19 villas are secluded, but just check where your villa will be located. We had a lot of steps to climb, but it didn't bother us as where we were located gave us total privacy. However, it would be challenging for someone with poor mobility.

Dear Tripadvisor Member,

A very big Thank You for your review with a wonderful description of Gending Kedis, down to the details of the numerous birds and butterflies which make the gardens so luxuriant and tropical.

You may be interested that the Jasmine scent is also complemented by "Queen of the Night" whose scent pervades our gardens in the night hours.

Our staff are excited to read your most appreciative and kind comments and pass on their own thanks to you.

We all hope you will plan a further trip to Bali and we assure you of a very warm welcome to stay with us at Jimbaran, or alternatively, Seminyak.

From The Island of the Gods and all of us at GK Resorts, best wishes to you in Edinburgh!

We stayed with a few other friends in a 4 bedroom villa (Kokokan) and all of us only have positive reviews for this luxury villa.

The villa was very beautifully furnished and clean. The private pool was a good size and the water was always warm by the end of the day. Our group traveled with 2 babies and found the place very baby friendly.

The shuttle service provided was definitely a plus. There was a good selection of food for breakfast. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We tried out the spa and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their Balinese massages.

The only negative was the wifi in our villa. It was slow and most of the time you could not connect to it because of the poor reception.

OK, we've stayed at a number of world class tropical resorts but Gending Kedis tops them all. Our two week visit to Bali was made that much more enjoyable with our decision to stay at GK.

Other reviewers have touted the property's amenities (spa, personal pools, quiet location) but we'd like to really call out the staff. From the moment you arrive someone with a smile is there to greet you (met Douglas and Gea at minute #1) and that continues from reception to restaurant or to spa. The exercise room is nicely appointed and our decision to include breakfast in our package became a brilliant choice when we started our day at the Alceda restaurant (breakfast isn't a buffet, it's cooked a la carte and a great value).

The property has several vans which will take you into the village or to other nearby properties or restaurants. No charge (taxis in Bali aren't particularly expensive for the longer hauls, about $10 round trip to Kuta and back, a little more for Seminyuk) for the service and smiles.

We availed ourselves to the spa (wow!) as well as the beach picnic and special photo shoot. Both produced great memories.

Compared with other neighboring properties (including an oversized and out-of-place property that comes complete with a checkpoint with machine gun toting guards) Gending Kedis wins. If it weren't 8000 miles away we'd go back next week (but, sadly, it'll have to wait a little longer than that).
