“Excellent property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

It was a family trip for us in December 2012 and we stayed at a 2 bedroom villa here for 5 days. Absolutely fantastic facilities. You dont need any utensils, everything is available here.. Nice private swimming pool and a supermarket where you can get basic stuffs. Lots of money changers at stones throw from this place..

Pros:
1. 5 mins walk from beach. But main Sanur beach is a bit far.
2. Great maid who washed all our clothes and cleaned dishes. We didnt use her for cooking as we cooked ourselves. But the lady was very kind and helpful!
3. Fantastic private pool.
4. You can hire private taxis quite easily.
5. Food in the place is a bit expensive, but once in a while you can eat here and breakfast for us was good.

Cons:
1. A bit far from main Sanur beach..
2. Internet is costly at 12$ per day.
3. They are bit inflexible on service, but hey thats the rules of the place and its put up as well..

Overall we would definitely go back to this place if we visit Sanur, being vegans it was a pleasure to stay here as we could cook ourselves. I would say worth the money we spent here..

Room Tip: Two bedroom villas dont have aircon for the living room!

We had 18 family together for Xmas & booked 2 x 4 bed room villas for 7 nights. Emerald villas are private, safe & clean Great for kids & family's. Well located with a short walk to the beach & shops. This was ideal accom at a very reasonable price.

Absolutely fabulous.We had a four b/room villa. The setup was great and very practical for children. Our house keeper was so lovely and very helpful if we needed any information. The pool cleaner & gardener came everyday, along with the housekeeper meant the villa was always looking lovely. Couldn't imagine it much better really. Nice location, not too busy.

We stayed here for 7 nights and afterwards regretted moving to a more expensive hotel in Legian. We miss Emerald Villas.
We paid approximately AUD $160/night for the Honeymoon Villa through Agoda.
Rooms & our stay:
This villa was huge, private, we had a maid (Tirka) come every day to clean and do our washing, as well as the pool boy to clean and maintain the pool, the gardener to tend the garden, all included in the price. We thought the cutlery, utensils, drinking glasse etc could be cleaner, I washed them myself always before using, other than this (and all the mosquitoes that managed to get in our bedroom and mauled us at night!) I cannot fault this villa. There is cable TV, a DVD player, an all-important blender to mix drinks, fans in the kitchen and dining area, very efficient aircon in the bedroom.
We were given Villa B17 which is actually a 3-bedroom villa, the staff just locked up the other 2 private rooms (with ensuites).
It was very quiet except when the neighbour' rooster made some noise (could not hear from bedroom) or practiced the drums.
Location:
The villa is 5 min walk to the beach, just cross Jl Danau Tamblingan, practically straight down the street the villa is on. This takes you maybe 50m from the Hyatt' beachfront which is the nicest part of the beach. There is also some watersport places where you come out onto the beach, set prices, good value for money.
On the corner of Tamblingan and the villa street (Jl Karangsari) is a Bagus shop/convenience store, which also has a money changer inside. Not a fanstastic rate but very convenient.
If you turn right at Tamblingan instead of straight across, there is CharMing restaurant (our favourite in Sanur), and further along Massimo's (which is very popular, but we didn't like).
Turn left on Tamblingan and a 10-15 min walk will get you to Hardy's, where you can stock up on groceries. There is a also a good DVD store in there who actually told us when we picked a copy DVD that wasn't good quality!
Service:
Everyone who works in this villa complex are friendly, with 24/7 security at the front gate who make you feel safe, and they are also very friendly and happy to find out more about you. We especially liked the security guard to has a slight gap in his front teeth, he was lovely!
Reception were friendly and efficient, all the poolboys were friendly, smiling and always said hello, and of course our maid Tirka was beautiful.
Food:
We ordered room service many times in the villa, and everything was great. Not all villas have this facility so it was excellent. They had a large selection for breakfast and other meals, very well priced. They also offered alcoholic drinks and cocktails if you can't be bothered making them in-villa.
Overall:
Highly recommend this villa if you are looking for a private relaxing holiday escape in Sanur, very good value for money.

We stayed in a four bedroom villa from the 31st October to the 2nd November 2012 which was booked for four couples. Although the villa was lovely, it really was set up for two couples and two rooms for children so check this before you go. The staff were very good and put two of the couples in another villa but unfortunately it wasn't the same with two of the couples being in a separate villa. In saying this I would not hesitate to stay there again as the staff are wonderful and its so close to the beach and restaurants.

I booked my Emerald Villa accommodation in June 2012. I had read all the reviews about the three different complexes that make up Emerald Villas. Gold, Emerald & Jade Villas.
We got to reception quite late after a flight in from Lombok. Sat at reception after being picked up at the airport, to go through all the usual stuff. To then be told we are sorry for the inconvenience but your villa is not empty yet so we need to put you in another villa for two nights first. (Uh oh this is where it starts)
We have you in a four bedroom king villa for the first two nights. Where is this Villa? It's at our Jade complex. "But I was told I was at the Emerald Villa. 'No, why would you think that? "This email I have from your staff is why I think that!"
Oh this email is old we have changed you around.
( this is where my father was getting out the phone to book tickets home to Australia)
Lets go look at the villas they said.
I'm glad we did. Jade Villas are amazing. No reception, no crowds. Just you and your family in your own villa.
I wished we had the four bedroom villa the entire week, it is amazing. The three bedroom we moved to was also great, just a smaller pool and missing an extra dining area.
All in all excellent stay from a scary beginning.
If you are staying here, request Jade Villa if you want peace and quiet.
Make sure you constantly email the booking service in case you are moved.
Watch out for the offer of pick up from the airport. They wanted US $25 after you arrive. The villas don't tell you this at the time you request it.
