This is our 7th trip to Bali, but the first time we have taken a villa. We usually stay in luxury resorts, but having extended family with us we thought we'd go the villa option.
We were not disappointed with anything. The location is prime - the beach is literally a left turn from out the front door & a short stroll down a quiet laneway. Ending right on the doorstep of la plancha. Seminyak beach has changed quite a bit over the last 10 years and really has quite a pumping vibe at sunset for people of all ages.
Within a short walk in any direction of the villa are all the facilities & attractions one could ask for. Shopping, convenience stores, ATMs, Cocktail bars, pubs, sports bars, up market & budget eats, Frankenstein's laboratory (that was great fun in a large group). You could easily get by completely without the need for transport. If you feel up to it, it's not that hard to walk all the way down into Kuta along the beach or up to Potato head & Petinget the other way. We did both no problems by beach and road.
The villa itself was perfect for our needs. We took the whole 6 bedrooms/6 bathrooms which also gave us 2 pools & 2 kitchens. We also engaged Tri the housekeeper to cook us fresh breakfasts every morning which were absolutely delightful. The rooms were lovely, clean, large and very comfortable.
All in all this was a perfect holiday in a perfect setting for us & we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, especially a family unit or group.
First time in Bali & wasn't disappointed. Villas were Spacious, clean & tidy. Only 50m to the beach. Staff that came to clean were friendly & bent over backwards to help.
Would recommend to anyone who are heading to Seminyak for a holiday
