“VERY Noisy but excellent location”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

As mentioned by “Bottom of the barrell” we to were upgraded by CRM villa managment from The Villa Aya. Here is the summary:

- VERY noisy as there is a main access road just 5 meters from your bedroom door. There is an endless procession of motorbikes which reaches a crescendo between 6:00 am and 8:00 am...just perfect for that much awaited sleep in!
- a 4 story hotel is under construction next door. Grinding, hammering etc all day long together with workers peering into your private courtyard
- Service is erratic, Great on day and very ordinary the next.
- There is a motorcycle parking lot on the grounds..(just happened to be outside our villa)
- Location...WOULD be perfect but the new hotel means that your privacy is compromised.

A first time visitor to Bali could be impressed, but being our 5th trip and many, many villas and hotle rooms later...choose elsewhere.

Choose another more private villa.

Room Tip: For Bali...it is just to noisy!

We stayed in 2 bedroom villa. Large size Villa and very Impressive. Yes, some people say that it was not as new as other villas, however, we were very happy with value for money and little aging things did not bother us. In fact we visited other villas and they were smaller and more expensive.
Very friendly staff. Facilities were cleaned everyday and staff cooked breakfast. Great Location made big difference as there was quick access to the main street to all restaurants and mini shop with atm machine. Yet, villa was located far enough from the street noise.

Enjoyed large private swimming pool. Villa would be ideal for 2 families or families with kids 6 years old and up who can swim without supervision as 2 bedroom villas are split into separate 1 bedroom villas opposite from each other and have swimming pool in between. Our kids (5 & 6) were not old enough to sleep in separate villa. I would not be able to hear them at night if they awake for any reason. So, might be hard to monitor kids younger age in particular their morning access to the swimming pool.

Saying that, with older children, it would be ideal as you get more privacy by having 2 separate one bedroom villas.

Overall, we were very happy with the experience. And will definitely consider Villa Aya again.

Villa Aya is situated off the main street of Seminyak and provides picturesque and luxurious holidaying. with a private pool and a simple but convenient outside kitchen. The premises are cleaned daily by the kind and attentive staff and breakfast is cooked for the guest every morning with the choice of Balinese breakfast or western.
We had a great experience.

Room Tip: the villas at the back of the lot a very quiet.

This was our first villa experience, following a week at Legian, the privacy was a welcome change. The first villa we were given (2 bedroom), was adequate, but not appropriate for a family with small children. There is a large ceramic tile staircase, and open plan kitchen living area opening onto a private pool. The only way to contain small children from the pool area (and mosquitoes) is to lock the bedroom doors from the outside. Upon inspecting the room, we viewed a one bedroom suite, and asked to be moved. Whilst not normally acceptable, the staff allowed our family of four to stay in a one bedroom suite, due to our safety concerns.

This suite had recently been refurbished, with glassed in living area, with internal locks and a recently refurbished kitchen area. Every morning the lovely staff would attend our room and cook a very large breakfast for us. As we were in a one bedroom suite, we were only replaced with 2 towels daily, but it was an inconvenience we were ok with to be able to relax. The bed was beautiful, very luxurious and mighty comfortable.

The mosquitoes are rife in this area, the villas provide you with coils and I noticed the grounds staff treating the area during our short stay. The villas are all currently under renovation, and I think that when this is complete, it will make a lovely place to stay.

The staff, grounds, security and hospitality, were all very lovely, and responded quickly to any concerns. The water pressure was a little low, but only on certain days. The reception staff were respondent to any concerns, whilst needing a little follow up at times.

Surprisingly, the bathrooms were equipped with Crab Tree & Evelyn products, which was a lovely touch. Unfortunately these were not replaced daily, maybe quality is better than quantity?
I believe these villas are under new management, I think once the renovated Villas are completed, they will definatly be worth another try.

Room Tip: Ensure you request a renovated Villa.

This is our first time staying in a villa in Bali and I could not be happier. This villa is new and spacious and so luxurious. The pool is a great size- 7x3m and is great for cooling off and swimming around in. The garden is so green without being overgrown. Breakfast is cooked for you every morning in your villa, your choice of 3 different breakfasts and your choice of time. They also ask what time you would like your villa to be cleaned.
The room is so spacious and so is the bathroom. We stayed in the deluxe villa and it totally blew my expectation compared to the pictures on the webiste. It is opposite trattoria and on the same street as ultimo, mykonos, khaima and a heap of other great restaurants and shopping places. We will stay here every time we are in bali!

Room Tip: get one further back from the street and the deluxe villas are beyond amazing

We were upgraded to the Club Villas in a 1 Bedroom Villa as our room in the Villa Aya was undergoing repairs.
We loved the Club Villas, staff were very attentive and the villa was beautiful, breakfast was cooked for us in our own private kitchen, just beautiful.
It was a real treat as we go to Bali on business at least twice a year and don't normally treat ourselves to this much luxury.
Thanks Club Villas

Villa Aya is in the perfect location on Seminyaks Eat Street. Aya would have been beautiful in it's day some 10-15 years ago but its really aging. The gardens in our private villa are lovely though. We booked with an online booking agent rather last minute and really didn't do enough research into this. I know you get better value for money elsewhere. To me it's over priced for the age of the facilities. We booked 2 Bedroom Villa which turned out to be two completely seperate Villas on opposing sides of the swimming pool with an outdoor covered area with dinning table, sink, fridge and some large day chairs/beds. We booked 2 beds thinking the bedrooms would be not far from each other. We have two young children under 5 yrs old that cannot swim so its not practical for us to have them sleeping in another villa across the other side of the pool with lots of steps, no pool fence and uneven surfaces. So we are all bunking in the one villa with son on couch and littlest one in our bed. Also the bathrooms are old and during the day heat up to about a million degrees. With the outdoor area even at 7am in the morning it was too hot to sit out there as the sun was shinning directly onto that area. Two things that have really turned me off is when we approached the staff about changing Villa they did not get back to us and secondly there was a mouse running around the kitchen area this morning.
