We first came across an advertisement for Zen Villas in our Sunday newspaper 3 years ago - it was karma! Revisited again during Oct/Nov 2012 and currently planning our next trip for October 2013! If you are bali freaks like us and enjoy nothing better than to come back to a little peace and quiet after a hectic day of shopping, massagers and sightseeing , the chirping of birds, the call of the little geckos, the cool afternoon breezes whilst relaxing beside your own personal pool - then this is a must-see for you. Zen is a mere 10 minute amble from the main drag of Danau Tamblingan. Zen Villas are set amongst lush manicured gardens, where each villa reflects its own uniqueness. The villas give you that 'I'm home' squishy feeling upon arrival. Trish, Adi, Sri, Windi and the remainder of the team certainly make you feel No 1 the whole time you are there. Nothing is too much trouble, you need only ask. Our only disappointment comes when we are packing to come home! Roll on 2013!

Just sat in Tranquility villa H having a lovely breakfast on a beautiful morning. The villas are peaceful and relaxing, set back from the main road in Sanur, but easily accessible with a short walk down the lanes. The villas themselves are well equipped, luxurious and clean. The team here are great! Helpful, friendly and considerate, arranging trips, in villa massage and answering any other questions you might have. Their interest in guests and willingness to help is genuine and their attention to detail is second to none. Having walked around much of Sanur and seen many types of accommodation on offer, we are very pleased we chose to stay at The Zen!

We spent five days in Harmony Villa Sept-Oct. We loved the spacious Villa, especially the huge pool. The fences around the courtyard were high enough to provide total privacy. The breakfast was excellent and we tasted everything in the menu during our stay. The staff was extremely helpful and e.g. arranged us masseuses within only one hour notice. We came in late and they had arranged us something to eat and drink. We were able to anjoy the fruits during our entire stay. There were a lot of restaurants within 20 minutes walk and we actually liked taking a walk back to the Villa because it provided us some excercise after the dinner. It was also safe to walk back in the evening. We would definately recommend this Villa to anyone planning a vacation in Sanur.

We stayed at Zen Villas (in Villa G) for 8 wonderful days. The Villa was spotless & cleaned every morning, the staff were wonderful & were always smiling. Nothing was too hard for the staff including recommending restaurants, booking transport to the lovely turn down service with cookies! The pool was excellent & huge, breaky every morning was great! The only issue we had was with a damned rooster that would crow in the middle of the night! but this is out of Zen Villas control. Zen Villas staff have said that they will approach the owner of the blasted chook & try to work something out.
I feel like chicken tonight....lol
Would have no problems staying here again & recommending to travelers, great value for what you get.
Excellent..

We stayed recently for three nights in Villa C and loved the place we wished we had booked for longer as we really would have enjoyed a couple of more nights at least. On the first night we had an issue with the power and water but this was a one of and fixed by breakfast. We loved the layout of the villa and pool it was ideal for our family with a three and five year old. All staff were exceptional and little things like the welcome pack in the villa and lollipops for the kids instead of a welcome drink made a difference. We had no problem with its location only a fifteen minute walk to Hardys not on the main strip but quite and private instead we used taxis of a night time. We did have to use mosquito coils and repellant as the kids got a few bites. Would recommend this place to family and friends.

We stayed one week in the Tranquility villa and really enjoyed the beautiful, clean and fully equipped villa. The villa is surrounded by a very private garden. We loved to swim in the pool and to sit in our jacuzzi after a day at the beach. The staff is very helpfull. The neighbourhood is safe, we rented bikes for one week and it' s great to bike along the path next to the beach and through Sanur.

We had a fantastic stay at the Zen Villas- thanks to Trish and the team. The focus and dedication of the staff was exceptional, a credit to them all. We really liked the little extras such as the welcome basket (including the Bintangs!!), responsiveness of the staff, attention to detail, cleanliness of accommodation and local knowledge. We were able to organise all our activities via the team at Zen.
We stayed in Villa D and thought the amenities were great. This villa also has an outside BBQ which allowed us to cook a meal or 2 ourselves rather than eat out every night. A nice 2 bedroom villa with all the trimmings and conveniences.
Really loved the cooked breakfasts although we felt a little guilty just getting up every day and leaving the dishes to the cleaning gang, but all part of the service at Zen. The walk thru the backstreets didn’t deter us too much. At night it was just as easy to grab a cab, really cheap to go anywhere in Sanur.
A special thanks to Adi as well. We changed money at a money changer with a rate just under 1000 Rupiah to the AUD when the others were around 9800- a big mistake. All looked good when we counted there, but when we got back to the Villa worked out we were somewhat short... Adi came back with us and we managed to get nearly all our money back- thanks Adi. A lesson for us as well- use the money changers they recommend only.
Should also point out that amenity differences between Villas is not down to the Zen team; each Villa is individually owned and it is the owner’s discretion as to what is provided etc.
A great choice for a home away from home in a quiet location if you are looking for the non-resort type accommodation and looking to avoid the crowds
