We are a family group ranging in age from 78 to 11 and we all loved Rumi. We had 2x
2BR villas and the 3 BR villa. Very central to all the action of Seminyak - restaurants, clubs, shopping, spa's etc, but yet very quiet and hidden away. Bonus was free membership to Canggu Club and the great Splash Waterpark. As with every other review you will read on Rumi the staff are what makes the place such a great experience; the maids are just the most lovliest ladies looking after you and nothing is too much for them. They made us breakfast, shopped for us, booked us transport, did our laundry and kept our holiday home 'homely'. WiFi was excellent along with the AC.
I had a week in Villa Jepun, at the back of the Rumi villas and it was wonderful! I was staying with a couple, and as I was on my own, found the layout of the villa very private. The bedrooms are huge and the double ensuites even bigger. Was quite luxurious. The beds and pillows were very comfortable - absolutely no complaints.
The open living/kitchen area was very lovely, looking onto the pool and gardens, but the mosquitoes are ferocious, even with a mozzie coil burning.
We were fortunate to have Nana as our housekeeper. She was so helpful, going out of her way to ensure our time in Rumi was as comfortable as possible. She cooked our breakfasts each morning to suit our time of getting up. She shopped, cooked, cleaned, washed, ironed and hung away our clothing, arranged for massages, taxis, whatever we needed. A real gem.
The air-con is only in the bedrooms, as is the TV, and there are many channels to choose from. The free Wi-Fi worked quickly with no problems.
It is a short walk to good restaurants and shops, a bit further to the beach, but we found the pool very adequate.
Overall, the villas are well located in a very quiet and secluded location. No street noise or noise from other properties.
This villa is exactly as appears in the photos. The rooms are spacious with huge bathrooms and lovely gardens. The housekeeper 'Nana' shopped, cooked, cleaned, washed, and organised tours for us. She was absolutely delightful and we would have liked to adopt her. We paid for an extra half day and the owner allowed us to stay till 9.30 when we left for the airport...which was really helpful. The pool was a good size, but by the end of the stay it was a bit greasy and over chlorinated...I think the pool boys might need a maintenance lesson. Overall, the villa was good value for money, clean, spacious, private and only a laneway's walk from the main shopping and eating street.

We stayed at the 3 bedroom Villa and were made very welcome by Sesuni our maid and the rest of the staff. It is a small walk from the main road in Seminyak where there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops to go to.
Mike was great to deal with, payment was no problem and always great to have a driver pick us up on arrival. The kids loved the pool and great that we could have a pool fence added as well. Large bedrooms with nice open bathrooms were great too.
The free wifi was a nice touch too.
Overall a very relaxing stay and would definitely recommend to others.
We stayed here for 1 week with family and hired 3 of the 2 bedroom villas and the 3 bedroom villas. Overall we all had a fantastic stay and I would highly recommend it for a holiday in Seminyak.
The maid service is amazing. You pay for groceries and your maid will cook you as many meals as you like. Washing was done each morning and returned ironed each evening. We had Wayan as our maid and she couldn't have been more helpful. She also completely doted on our 1yr old daughter and babysat for us several nights.
The outdoor area is ideal for children.
Location is great - very close to eat street and the great restaurants but not too far from the beach either.
Negatives: the supplied pool fence was rusty and rickety and not desirable but did the job so long as people remembered to tie the gate shut. Same for the pond fence and stair gate. Would be nicer to have the sturdy bamboo fencing supplied and made the villas look a lot nicer.
No toiletries are supplied, broken tiles in the pool and no electric kettle.
The layout isn't ideal for a family with small kids as the rooms are very separate. The stairs are completely unsafe for children and very steep with no side rail.
The biggest problem was the mosquitos-they are everywhere. The villas are not fumigated prior to your arrival and you cannot escape the biting creatures. We were there in peak mosquito season however - so perhaps this isn't an issue year round.
Overall Rumi Villas is great value for money but not certainly not luxury. It was the maid service and Wayan that completely made our stay great! She was a great cook, fantastic with kids and all the maids stayed back 1 night to cook us an Indonesian feast. Highly recommend staying here!
We stayed at Rumi Villas in Seminyak with a group of 6, and couldn't have asked for anything more! From the moment you walk through the gorgeous Balinese doors, the only problem is you don't want to leave. We had a large private pool, cabana with couches to relax, and stunning gardens - all perfectly maintained - a private kitchen, laundry (which is done for you by the beautiful staff) and great size bedrooms - each with their own bathroom. Complete luxury and amazing value!
The location was perfect too! Right in the heart of Seminyak, close to all the restaurants, bars and fantastic shops.
Overall, our holiday was absolutely incredible, and I would highly recommend staying here with friends or family. Thank you to Rumi Villas and the fantastic staff for making our time in Bali so amazing. Can't wait to come back!!
We had a very nice stay in that villa. Perfect place for 2 couples. Internet was good. People very nice. And close to seminyak square.
