Villa Angelo
Ranked #138 of 434 Specialty Lodging in Seminyak
Reviewed January 17, 2012

In December 2011 we stayed in Villa Angelo for the third time, it feels a bit like coming home.

Located close to the hustle and bustle of Seminyak but as soon as you pass through the gate of Villa Angelo into the garden you imagine yourself in an oasis of tranquility. A beautiful swimming pool (the pride of owner Marinus) and luxurious but cozy rooms.

The room next to the swimming pool is the most beautiful and largest (note the beautiful wooden door), but this room was unfortunately occupied. We stayed in another, also nice and large, room on the first floor with a view of the swimming pool and garden.

The rooms are really very clean. Owner Bob leads the staff and ensures that the rooms are clean according to the “Dutch” standard. It is set up as a small complex but has, in many cases, a 5 star service. For example, a great staff, wash and ironing services are complementary, scooter rental, air-conditioning in the room, a mini-bar and also other services like taxi transfers can be arranged by Villa Angelo.

A real winner!

I stayed as a solo traveller in Dececmeber for 5 nights and loved the place. The building is beautifully built in balinese style to a very high standard (think polished stone, polished teak, polished everything) and the place is kept scrupulously clean at all times (every time you look up from your book one of the guys are cleaning something). The pool is beautiful and a perfect temperature. The breakfasts are very generously sized even by western standards, good quality and you will not be hungry. Balinese coffee (unless it is Luwak) is generally not very good because most of the beans they grow in Bali are of very low grade, but the coffee the guys made for me here was always very good and strong and plenty of it (coffee is extremely important to me). The food and juices were always great and heaps of them - you won't need to eat lunch, unless you are a porker. You get bacon and eggs, pastries, yoghurt, fruit and more. There are plenty of common guest areas where you can relax in the sun or the shade, including a mini library for guest use. The view over the local rooftops is charming, as is the laneway you access the villa from. Bintang supermarket is right across the road, though you wouldn't know it because the villa is shielded from the road and noise by thick, high walls and at least 4 other buildings (excellent). It was blissfully silent in the evenings. Other guests were friendly, kind and chatty. My room was massive and the size of a 1 bedroom apartment in Sydney. The bathroom was enormous and lovely, finished in 3 different types of stone. The water pressure is a bit low but i never found this to be a problem. I paid $87 AUD in the peak season for my massive room with brekafast and the pool and I thought this was excellent value for money. My airconditioner worked very well (it didn't break down once) and my stone floored room was beautiful, and a very comfortable bed. Lots of english speaking TV stations on the box if you need to have one night in to recover and veg out. The location is very central and you can walk to everything. I would definitely stay again and I wish the boys all the best with their business - it's a genuinely good value offering and a good concept and I hope they continue to succeed.

Room Tip: ask for an upstairs room - I had one with windows on 3 sides - wonderful x-ventilation. Stay the...

This was a nice enough place. I have to say though that I was underwhelmed with Seminyak - a bit generic and over-crowded. The Villa staff were friendly and helpful, breakfasts were good and the rooms were nice enough.

Room Tip: Good but basic

It´s a little special review. My English is not so good: I am a Dutch native speaker. But more I visit the villa of an very old friend of me/us. I and my friend, we have a relationschip from 25 year, were a little bit afraid to go to an special gay villa.
What´s happens there ?
It is a very nice villa with lovely rooms, garden and swimmingpool. Also a good breakfast and a nice staff. (I had given the villa an excellent if the swinngpool was bigger/greater. )
When you wanted rest you get rest, you could relax. When you wanted a liitle bit more excitement, it was also possible. In the bars there were enough handsome boys to enjoy. Sometimes other guests take a boy to the villa.. It did`nt disturb the rest of others.
The most nice thing, more than I had expected were the conversations with other guests, From Australia, China, Malysia , Singapore, French , even Holand.
I foud it a geat experience. And I miss the staff. Not sexually, but the friendlyness and talkings.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Everybody have his own wihses and mostly it is ssuccefull to aarange that.

I just came bk fr Bali today. I must say that this is a good place to relax as it has a cosy place with friendly staff. The staff were always ready to ask whether we were okay and needed anything. I like the swimming pool and the garden as well. Felt really homely there. Like what many have said earlier, this place is near the main road, Jalan Raya Seminyak, so we could get around easily and there were many shops along the main road. It was a wonderful experience for us.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are big

While this is a beautiful gay run villa, having the host conversing with other guests until 5:00 in the morning outside our room, is not our idea of peaceful.  The accommodations are clean, the breakfasts are wonderful, and the location is great.  However, the evening staff can be inappropriate in their flirtations and need to be more professional.  This is certainly an option for a base place to stay while visiting the local Seminyak, but expect a 3 star visit.

The Penthouse is some distance from the Villa and the gay clubs. However, it is walking distance from the gay beach. The apartment is clean and nice and well maintained. It is also cool and very breezy. There is a beautiful balcony from which you can view the sunset over the Indian Ocean.

Ideal for couples wanting a quiet, private holiday. There is a good restaurant called "Biku" near the Penthouse. The Penthouse has its own kitchen if you prefer to self cater.

One of the staff from the Villa comes every morning to cook a fresh breakfast in the Penthouse.
