“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed April 7, 2010

We were invited to a wedding in Bali, and were not keen to stay in Kuta, Legian or Seminyak...and since I had been to Bali before opted for Jimbaran Bay as it was halfway between the tourist hub and the surf at Uluwatu. We decided to do a secret deal on the Wotif website, as we had been successful before, and landed Gending Kedis. We were not disappointed is an understatement. This place is simply amazing...not many other guests, and it seemed we had the whole place to ourselves. Breakfast was included and was top notch, the service impeccable, and the accommodations truly 5 star. We wished we had booked for two weeks instead of just one. Our private courtyard and pool was in the shade, and it was the coolest pool in Bali. What a treat at midnight. All the other pools we tried at friends resorts were like a warm bath. We rode a motorbike all around from here, and only caught taxis a few times. Cheap enough at 70,000 rupiah if you haggle the taxi driver a bit from Kuta after a night out. Self contained in every way it was so private. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Our stay was very pleasant, the room was delightful and peaceful. We decided for a quieter Bali trip. The rooms were layed out wonderfully and serviced well. We did have to asked for some building to be stopped next door, which they did fairly quickly.
The food as people have commented is better than Kaniska but still could be improved. I did however have to eat in more than I wished due to my partner being a little ill, so for room service standards the food was good.
The pool was lovely and the surroundings were very conducive for a relaxing break. As a keen biker, we got a scooter organised for us, I would liked a better quality bike for the price we paid for them to organise it. I could have picked up a better quality one for a third of the price off the street. We visited some farms and rice fileds on the bike which is what we came to bali for, so it served it's purpose.

All in all, a great place to relax, grab a cheap eat on the beach and take it easy. Aunique place if you dont wont huslte and bustle .

We stayed for 3 nights in a 1 bedroom villa.
From the moment we arrived we were impressed. Polite, professional staff and a quality establishment.
The villa was magnificent. Clean, very spacious, very quiet and private.
There are a lot of stairs down (and up again) for the villa we stayed in. This might be something to consider for some...but there are villas on higher ground.
The private pool was lovely, with a view into a valley.
A gym and expanded spa are being created...all the construction has been completed, so you don't have to worry about building noise.
With everything so good, my small list of faults was very petty.
Enjoy it...we did.

We spent three days in thriving Seminyak at Kanishka Villas,

The villas are beautifully finished and the customer service was second to none!

We found the location of the Kanishka Villas perfect for getting around the eateries and souvenir shops in Seminyak.

For Nyepi day, when the Balinese celebrate their New Year in total silence, we decided to move to Gending Kedis, managed by the same group for a little peace and serenity.

The property is incredibly beautiful and strategically located on the Jimberan Bay, close to the internationally acclaimed New kuta/Pecatu Championship Golf Course.

From the time we arrived until our departure, the guest recognition, service , food & beverage

and experience was something we will never forget.

We cant wait to return and live it all over again!

Thank you for making our holiday so special and memorable!

Dear TripAdvisor Member,
Thank you for choosing to stay at both KANISHKA and GENDING KEDIS for your vacation.
It was a great pleasure for us to enjoy your company over the Silent Day of 'Nyepi' the Balinese New Year.
Having experienced the total silence and darkness of this unique day in the Balinese calender, we hope you may decide to return again in the future.
Best wishes from the GK Resorts team! Douglas Wallace.

Without doubt...this is a simply stunning villa resort.The attention to detail in the design & configuration is sympathically executed from the sublime service to the beautifully presented breakfast each morning was excellent...Our extremely private 2 level spacious & luxurious 2 bedroom villa with pool had all the mod cons you would dream of on holiday....The G.M Douglas Wallace was a personable host & this was reflected in the attitude of his smiling staff & serene surroundings....driver/butler Bagoush,Herma in reception & Herma upstairs in the bar/restaurant were truely exceptional...they made our brief stay even more magical.
We caught the free shuttle on several occasions down to the elegant Rock beach bar @ Ayana hotel formally Ritz Carlton to sip salacious cocktails & watch the sunset...a must!...Try one of the cheap fish cafes down along Jimbaran Bay where the tables are on the beach with the waves lapping lazily on the shore...the smorghasboard of seafood is deliciously overwhelming & merry mariachi band a delightful distraction.
The location of the resort as in you require a shuttle could be a hindrance but I didn't find this a problem...my only negative was the dinner in the resort restaurant didn't quite match my expectations...it was disappointingly bland...however,Gending Kedis which means songbird in Balinese is a charming chorus of memorable melodies!

Dear TripAdvisor Member,
Our staff were thrilled to read your recognition of their work in your review! Thank you very much for writing your kind notes; most of all we are delighted to receive feedback from guests such as yourselves.
Great to hear that you enjoyed the stunning Rock Bar at the nearby Ayana as well as the perennially popular seafood cafes close by on the Jimbaran beach.
We hope that the London winter will next year convince you to come back once again to the warmer climes of Bali.
The same warm wishes from me and all our team!

The two story suite was close to the size of a modest American home; and completely exceeded our expectations. The full kitchen and living area are upstairs near the entrance with a private courtyard; and the bedroom and master bath were downstairs with the private plunge pool. The accomodations were luxurious, and the focal point of the stay since breakfast or messages can be done in the suite.

The service was equally impressive. My wife had a birthday close to check-in; and the staff surprised us with a birthday cake; and song upon arrival. They must have noticed from her passpart in advance. That was a truly extraordinary gesture.

The only downside for us is the area is not so walkable, and driving to Ubud or other sites can take some time given traffic on the island. But there is complimentary shuttle service to the beach; and nearby services. One tip is to try a Padang Joint near the hotel. One of the hotel drivers recommended it and it was one of the top dining experiences we had on the island!

I'm very disapointed with gending kedis!!! I assure u, that will be my last stay in Gending Kedis. I stayed at room ranggana 1, from dec 30'09 to jan 02'10. The service was terrible, they greeted me horribly. They say there's a private pool in the room, but with a 2m x 10 m, how could u even swim? The cleanliness is horrible too, so many flies!! The most horrible thing.. they 'kicked' me out of the villa. On my last day, i was waiting for the car that i rented to pick me up to the airport, the front desk has been calling me from 11 am telling me to check out immediately. Finally at 12.30 pm the car arrived and we ate lunch before we leave. One of the housekeepers came to our room to 'check' the room and he just went back and forth while we were eating. How impolite! He even checked the door to see if it was broken in front of us. GOD! When i want to see the duty manager, the receptionist said that he was out for lunch. They call themselves luxury villa????

Dear TripAdvisor Member,
We should like to respond to your review of GENDING KEDIS following your stay over the New Year period.
We do not believe that the welcome given to you was as you described. Our reservations documentation clearly shows that the 2-bedroom villas are for occupation of maximum 4 adults. Your insistence to check in considerably more guests was met with a polite and reasoned explanation of the reservations agreement.
The Ranggana villas pool, with a length of about 10 metres, is generous indeed, longer than in many pool villas, and comfortable to swim for normal guests. I would also add that the new Clubhouse at GENDING KEDIS offers a beautiful 22 metre long pool, ideal for keen swimmers. Regarding check out procedures, again, our Guest Service Manager very courteously explained to you that accommodations need to be serviced for newly arriving guests. As a regular hotel user one assumes you are quite used to and accept these conditions. Yours sincerely, Douglas Wallace.
