I traveled to Bali for the 4th time this September 2009 with a large group of friends. After extensive research, we decided to stay at the Seri Villas . It turned out to be one of my best trips to Bali ever!

LOCATION -- Seri is set on a quiet street in Seminyak, just 10 minutes walk from the beach or to the Living Room, Hu'u Bar, Sarong, and La Luciola. 20 minutes walk to KuDeTa. This location is hard to beat!

ACCOMODATIONS -- All nine villas are beautifully decorated in modern Balinese style with spacious living and dining areas, comfortable bedrooms with mosquito netting, lovely outdoor pools and garden areas, cable TV, DVD/CD players, ceiling fans, A/C throughout, fully stocked fridge, bathrobes, toiletries, and in-room safe. The rooms are private and very quiet at night.

TRANSPORTATION -- Seri offers free airport transfers and free shuttle to anywhere in Seminyak. Or you can taxi for 10-30k rupiah ($1-3 USD). You can also book the hotel van and driver at very reasonable prices. The drivers are very punctual and polite. They also serve as great tour guides!

BREAKFAST and ROOM SERVICE -- Breakfast is included with your booking, and you have a choice of eggs, pancakes, french toast, corn flakes, pastries,fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, and coffee/tea. Simply delicious!

POOLSIDE BBQ -- The hotel set up a gorgeous candlelit Seafood BBQ for our group of 16 one night by the pool. It was amazing! The food was great and the party even better! I highly recommend a poolside BBQ, especially when you're tired of eating out. What a treat!

SPA SERVICES -- Seri has a small spa for massages and treatments. Even better is the in-room services. You can get a foot massage while reading a book by the pool in your private villa.

WIRELESS -- Wifi is available in your villa at $3 USD per hour. Buy a card at the front desk and logon!

STAFF -- Simply marvelous!! The staff spoke good English, was extremely polite, and accomodated our every need. They booked tours, shuttled us to town, shopping, and beaches, made reservations for golf, scuba diving, day trips, spas, and restaurants! Whenever there was a problem, they fixed it asap. We couldn't have felt more at home! This was a true luxury vacation! We miss the staff already after only one day!

SECURITY -- No problems. Security guards are posted around the villas 24 hours.

VALUE -- Overall I think the Seri Villas offers one of the best values in Seminyak. There are cheaper places to stay in Bali, but if you want to be close to the action and the best beaches, Seminyak is the place to stay. Especially for young couples and friends. I would highly recommend Seri Villas because of its great location, excellent accomodations, superb service, and good value for the money! If you plan to stay more than 2 nights, try negotiating for a discount.

TIPS -- Bring bug spray and keep your doors closed. All villas in Bali have bugs. Keep small change in Indonesian Rupiah for tips. Take a 10 minute walk to La Luciola for a beautiful lunch on the beach. Try Jari Menari in Seminyak town for a spectacular massage! Try boogie boarding or surfing at Petiteneget beach nearby! Play golf at Nirwana with its gorgeous view of Tanah Lot Temple on the cliff above the ocean.

I recently spent 5 wonderful nights staying at the Seri Villas with my wife. The quality of the accommodation is world class with contemporary furniture & fittings, all set in the traditional surrounds of Seminyak.

Our villa was divided into two buildings and separated by a pool. The sleeping villa included a stunning indoor/outdoor bathroom, which was concealed by a wall. The living/dining villa was huge with kitchen, dining room and lounge area, which opens directly onto the pool.

A real highlight was breakfast. The staff prepared a good range of dishes each morning in the kitchen. All made to order!

The villas are ideal for families or couples as you can easily spend the day lazing around your private pool and enjoying comfort of the villa. The location is also excellent as the beach & bars are all 5 minutes walk away. We'll be back next year.

The Seri Villas is a very special place. As other reviewers have mentioned the location couldn't be better (a 2 min walk to the beach and dining spots like Kudeta and the Living Room). We stayed here for a few days after our wedding to get our breath back and we couldn't have chosen a better place. We loved the tranquility and at the same time knowing that we could find lively nightlife just a few steps away. We arranged lunches and dinners at the best restaurants on the island with friends and loved being able to leave the villa just minutes before the meeting time. For friends who were staying at Nusa Dua, it was a bit of a trek.

I particularly liked the outdoor bathroom and having a private pool was sheer luxury. We asked the staff to arranged in-villa massages everyday. The staff were wonderful and genuinely happy to be of help.

I think it's silly to stay in a big name hotel in Bali since Bali does private villas like no other place. Save your Hyatts and Mariotts for your city business travels!
