“Beautiful Villa and Interior at an excellent Seminyak location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2011

Loved the interior plan of Villa 4. When you open the door, you are are your own private sanctuary with full kitchen, dining room, living room and direct into the pool. The bedroom is so comfortable and the open bathroom with bath and shower was exotic! Went and stocked up on yummy imported food just up the street at Bali Deli, Bali's best supermarket. Then took a short walk up the street to my favorite Bali restaurant - Made's Warung for dinner. In villa WIFI made it easy for me to keep in touch with my business back home. Free shuttle was great when I had to go to a meeting, and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Kanishka for me was such a treat and first class in every way. Having your own private villa and pool is much better way to enjoy Bali, then staying in a 5 star hotel. Highly recommended.

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
Thank you very much for your informative review following your short break in Bali from the pressures of the city life. We most appreciate your kind mention of the location of Kanishka Villas, and pleased to hear that you took advantage of the proximity of the Bali Deli for your shopping and the legendary Made's Warung for an exciting dining experience, these 2 venues each being a 2 minutes stroll away from Kanishka. Thank you for your kind mention of our guest service as well as the complimentary shuttle service around Seminyak.
We all hope you will return again as our valued guest, warm regards, Douglas Wallace

I stayed in Kanishka Villas in November 2011. It was a truly amazing experience! This is by far the nicest place I have stayed in. The villa was beautiful, the staff so friendly and helpful and a really great location! I think I would find it impossible to stay anywhere else in Bali on my next trip. Really top notch effort Kanishka, I can't fault you at all!

We booked a one-bedroom villa and we had a lovely stay. the villas are located in one if not the best areas in Bali, in Seminyak, near the Bali Deli and close to all the boutiques and shops, and a extense variety of restaurants, although beach is around 20-25 mins walk but Kanishka offers a free shuttle to the beach. Accommodation is nice although in our opinion the bedroom downstairs is a bit small compared to the size of the villa. Living room is very big with an equipped kitchen and open air, next to the pool. The only problem is the amount of mosquitos in the evenings and when you get up in the morning for breakfast, you need to spray around if you do not want to be bitten. Pool is convenient but not that sunny for sunbathing but super nice to have a pool for yourself. I think the villas need some renovation mainly due to the fact that furniture, etc.. are open air with no windows,, but some small touches would make it nicer. The bathroom is vey big with a bathtub and an outdoor shower that with the mosquitos sometimes not that nice, but in general good. they serve you the breakfast in the room in the mornings and this is average quality. the best part is the privacy and the location and shame they did not have a spa at the facilities, only at their sister property

We had a two bedroom villa and it was simply bautiful. It was on two floors so having the upstairs bedroom I also had my own additional living room area there. Each room was like a suite on its own. It hard to find fault in this place, perhaps the pool was on the small size and not really getting sun for sunbathing. Service was impeccable, breakfast amazing. Its not the best location in Seminyak in my opinion (I prefer more central Oberoi area) but there is a free transport to anywhere in Seminyak from the villa and you never had to wait more than 2 minutes for it. This would be good for two friends or two couples as there is enought space that you do not feel crowded.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Kanishka Villas in Seminyak, Bali. The spacious, open-plan living area off a lovely pool framed by frangipani trees, created the ideal environment for that special occasion. The mood was set when we were greeted with an anniversary cake, complete with candles by the attentive staff. A very thoughtful touch!
The main bedroom overlooks the pool and is made for comfort and relaxation. A large on-suit bathroom is fitted out with both bath and shower and fragrant soaps and lotions provide those small touches that make a difference.
Kanishka Villas are in a superb location. Just walk to the end of the street and you leave the private sanctuary of the villa to find yourself in the midst of the classy shops and diverse restaurants of Seminyak.
Kanishka is the ideal place for a clebration, a relaxing holiday and also an opportunity to enjoy the lively atmosphere of Seminyak, just a short stroll away. Strongly recommended!

We booked a one bedroom villa (all villas have 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, 1 by the pool & 1 upstairs - both are very private & would be a great set up for 2 couples) for a week in October 2011 & were given Villa 14 which is at the end of the lane that the villas occupy. I had read numerous reports that started that noise was a concern due to their open air nature but we heard nothing at all (all 15 villas were fully booked & occupied when we stayed) & we came to think of our villa as an oasis, close to everything but so relaxing & private. I am sure that if you did hear people or any noise you could flick the switch that turns on the waterfall over the pool & problem would be solved, as the waterfall drowns out all other noises and adds to the relaxing feel or lazing by the pool. There were mosquitoes but they were nowhere near as bad as I had read & really were no problem at all, neither of us were bitten, the staff sprayed the villas (all rooms) each night & set out coils to burn in the living and bathroom areas.
The villas are a short stroll to loads of fantastic restaurants, spas & shopping, we walked to the beach one morning and in took about 15 minutes at a leisurely stopping to browse kind of pace. On numerous occasions we used the villas transport and driver to drop us off at restaurants or to go shopping, which is included in the price. The villas also organised free transport to Jimbaran for a sunset seafood dinner and we booked a driver for a day trip to Ubud though our butler and the price was very reasonable.
The villa was private, well equipped and had everything we could have possibly needed. The open air living/dining and kitchen area is very large and well laid out. There is a fan in this areas that kept it amazingly cool & we spent a lot of time lazing around on the sofa which is huge, as was the flat screen TV with surround sound. We didn't do any cooking in the kitchen, but certainly could have done as everything is right there ready, with a full-size fridge & a hot/cold filtered water fountain. The bedroom and bathroom were fantastic - a large 4 poster bed sits in the middle of a large, high wooden ceiling room that is air-conditioned & has another flat screen TV. The bath and shower were perfect, great pressure and we loved the indoor outdoor feel plus the garden that surrounded it. The pool and deck were lovely - shaded for most of the afternoon due to the frangipani trees that surrounded the pool, but there was enough sun to lay in for a few hours in the morning & a terrace upstairs if you wanted afternoon sun, but due to heat of the afternoon we found the sun/shade ratio to be great. The food was incredible and we enjoyed the cooked breakfast plus pancakes and cereal every morning, it had everything we could have wanted and more. Nothing disappointed! Our butler, Sudi, was fantastic as were all the staff, Nothing was too much trouble and everything happened within minutes. I would definitely stay at the Kanishka Villa again & would definitely recommend the villas to any couple that wants to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax whilst in Bali, but still be close to the action.

Though a bit run down but well maintained. Service was excellent throughout my stay. The strategic location is a plus point, with good restaurants and shopping street within walking distance. My favorite spot is the open space pavillion which was fully equipped with LCD TV, DVD player, iPod player and Home Theatre system with large comfortable sofa. The bathroom is spacious and the bed itself is very comfortable. Pool was cleaned daily and the cold/hot drinking water dispenser is a nice touch. The only issue is the presence of mosquitoes, though they did their best to tackle this by supplying mosquito coils and spray. Highly recommended.
