Me and my wife stayed in a One Bedroom Pool Villa for two nights.
The villa is located just 5 mins away from the Seminyak Beach. Perfect location for people who would spend most of their time on the beach. There are quite a few Pubs and Restaurants in the vicinity. A taxi ride to the upscale Seminyak Square is approx 10 mins, to the Kuta/Legian street is 15-20 mins and to the famous Double Six Street is 5-10 mins. Although the Hotel claims to have shuttle service to the city, they may have an excuse to avoid it. The main pool is very small so are the private pools inside the villa. There is a recreational area next to the main pool with cozy cushions layed on the floor to enjoy Carrom and Chess games in a quiet setting. It was nice to get complementary Pickup from Kuta on the first day when we checked in. The furnishing and the interiors were top class and seem to have been recently renovated. The King size bed was very comfortable. There was a Flat screen 40" television with DVD Player. The open concept Bathroom was good. The Bath tub was decorated with Rose Petals when we checked in, which was lovely. The staff was quick to respond to any call for help but at the same time discreet to allow complete privacy.
However, it was not flawless. Let me list them starting with the most Annoying ones.
1- Inadequate hot water supply in the bathroom. Could fill only 1/3rd of the Bath tub in one go and required another 30 mins wait before the next flow of supply could start. But by then previous stock would go cold.
2 - There seemed to be houses belonging to the locals on the other side of the Boundary walls of our Villa. Their Domestic Hen's clucking all night long denied me a sound sleep.
3 - Breakfast was substandard. Since they have a set menu for breakfast (One Omlette with some Bacon, 1 Muffin, 2 pieces Bread, 1 Crossaint , 1 Glass Juice, Small Plate of Fruits), you may run out of options if the Fruits taste bad which happened in my case. The other Choice is Fried Rice/Noodle Breakfast. We did not try those. So cannot comment.
4 - The private pool was too small.
5 - The Villas are not standalone. there are other Rooms (Perhaps Deluxe rooms) that are docked on top of every villa. Not much of a hassle, but still there is always a feeling of not so Private.
6 - The Living room (Open concept) should atleast have a Fan.
I would definitely give this a pass in my next visit.
