“Amazing!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

This review is long overdue - we stayed in Bonsai Villas in September 2011, but forgot to add this review which is a real shame as we were SO happy with our stay!

It was our honeymoon, so we were mostly looking for a romantic place to stay, and boy did Bonsai villas deliver! There are 4 villas (I think) that share a pool, but most of the time you will have the pool to yourself and get to lounge by the poolside as the wonderful owner of the place brings you coffee/tea and cookies... Perfect relaxation, and you are very close to all the restaurants, shopping etc. There are also food stores very close to the hotel, so one can stock up the fridge. There is about a 10 min walk to the beach, but we didn't mind - there are a bunch of spas on the way so you can get a manicure/pedicure after swimming :) And the area around the beach is quite loud, so in my opinion it was nicer to stay in a peaceful oasis like Bonsai villas. I felt extremely safe in the villas since the area is very calm and the staff is always there - and I thought the open floor plan would be a bit scary - how wrong I was, it is perfect.

The room itself was beautiful - open, comfy, bed was heavenly, the bathroom was lovely, lots of space for your things - and decorated with real taste and style. Some people have mentioned the mosquitoes, so a few words about that: I am really prissy about bugs in general and to top it off, extremely allergic to mosquito bites, and I did not get bitten ONCE in Bonsai. It's quite amazing, but all thanks go to the staff who really tried their all to protect us from bites.

And that brings me to the staff: just perfect. So friendly, open, happy, 24/7 - what more could you ask for? It is the little touches that really made our stay special - the towels were folded differently every day and smelled lovely, there were always flowers on our bed (honeymoon, remember), whatever we asked, the staff was always there... The wonderful personality of the owner Rudi really reflects on the place I think.

So, Thank you so much Rudi & the rest of the staff, and when we come back to Bali we are looking forward to seeing you again!

We have recently returned from 2 weeks in Bali and spent the first four days at the Bonsai Villas. It was such a nice start to our holiday. The villas are beautiful - very well decorated, clean and spacious. The owners and staff are very attentive at all times and so friendly. Nothing was too much bother for them. There is a lovely pool area in the centre of the villas. The grounds are beautifully designed and landscaped. It is a small complex with only 4 villas, making it a great spot to relax and unwind. We were holidaying with two other couples so we basically had the place to ourselves. Location is good, with many great restaurants and cafes close by. Will definitely stay here again.

We checked into this hotel after having a bad experience at another hotel and could not believe the difference that $30 a night makes. This place has everything, and is just so stunningly beautiful that I will definately return.

We have recently returned from 6 weeks of travel, 4 weeks of which were spent at Bonsai Villas, Seminyak, Bali. It was our third stay at Bonsai Villas & again we stayed a month & it really has become our home away from home. We love the beautifully decorated self contained villas, the location & most of all the owners & staff. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Merv, Rudi & the boys. We have already booked for the month next May & advise anyone considering staying there to book early to avoid disappointment. There are only 4 villas & they are in big demand. We highly recommend Bonsai Villas.

Stayed at Bonsai Villas with my husband for 3 nights in June 2012. Firstly, the location is fantastic: very central, easy to walk to most places in Seminyak/Legian from here and very close to Bintang Supermarket (an easy way to describe where the villa is to Taxi drivers). Price is fantastic for this area and your own private villa! Villas are spacious, very comfortable and clean. Staff light mozzie coils every evening, and the bedroom area is airconditioned. Lovely having an outdoor bathroom too. I was suprised how quiet it was here too, no noisy neighbours etc. Pool is great, very deep and clean. Staff are amazing and very helpful. Particularly Weedi (not sure of spelling) who was just lovely. Really enjoyed our stay here and would definately recommend to anyone else looking for a villa to themselves at a great price in this area!

The villas are lovely,aesthetic,comfortable ,spacious and in a great central location.
Rudi,Merv and staff have been fantastic attending to our requests.
We attended a wedding outside Seminyak and Rudi went way out of his way to assist us by organizing his tailor( who came to us and copied my husbands worn out trousers and delivered 3 new pairs on time before the wedding and our departure (all in 3 days)we were very impressed! Also Rudi came to our rescue with our ongoing plans to Lombok.Thankyou Rudi we are so grateful for your gracious hospitality.
We met other travelers there who had returned for a number of years to stay for a month or more and we can well understand why!We look forward to returning to your charming villas of serenity.

Room Tip: We found room number 2 to be the quietest when we were there at the end of May 2012

The villas are great, the pool area is like being in a japanese garden and the staff are really helpful. Rudi was very kind and gave us a late checkout for our daughter to sleep before a late flight.
I also like it that the mini bar is at supermarket rates.
