Bonsai Villas
Ranked #107 of 148 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed August 7, 2014

We had a great stay at the villas and would thoroughly recommend this to any couples wanting a quiet stay in Bali. Would also suit a group of 4 couples as there are 4 villas all facing the pool and would be a great party place for responsible adults.
The staff are very helpful and go out of their way to please as well as the owner Rudi was only too pleased to help us out with addresses etc. The honesty of these people exceeds all expectations.

Thanks Bonsai for a great stay.

We totally enjoyed our stay and the owners and staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.
We have always found the Balinese to be very honest and obliging and this was no exception, I left a whole lot of jewellery behind in the villa and everything was returned , not a thing missing.
Thanks do much guys!!!

We had an amazing week at Bonsai Villas, the villas had everything you could want in a self-catering one bedroom villa.

The villas are down a little lane near Bintang super market so you are close to the hustle and bustle of Seminyak but the villa is nice and peaceful. However, you can hear the Bintang announcements at times.

Rudi the owner did not greet us or say Hi when we saw him and on one occasion would not even come out of his office to talk to us face to face, choosing to let his staff act as a go between.

However, his staff are super friendly and make you feel at home straight away. They have great banter and always ask your plans for the day. They offer you drinks as you are by the pool and each night they light mosquito coils for you.

The pool is nice and clean and has four sun loungers to use. The lounge room also has a sun lounger. I found no problem with the temperature of the pool like other reviewers.

The hot water did run out during some showers, but this did not bother me.

Although there are blinds in the lounge room and bedroom I found them very hard to use.

Overall I enjoyed my time at Bonsai Villas and it was a great base for us.

Firstly, thankyou to the amazing staff at Bonsia Villa's! We have been to bali a few times and will definitely be staying here in the future! The villa was large and beautifully designed, the staff friendly and always helpful! For the price you will not find somewhere especially around Seminyak for this such value.

There are plenty of great places to eat and even the famous bintang supermarket if you feel like stocking up your kitchen to cook in the well equipped kitchen. With a larger than bar fridge to hold plenty of stock...

With only a few villas you get a very personally experience.

In a few reviews I have seen comments about the pool temperature that has made me laugh! We went for many swims at all times of the day and always felt it pleasant and of a perfect temperature...

Thankyou to Rudi and his staff for a great experience... see you next time!

Staff are great but a number of negatives that previous reviewers have detailed are true; warm water running out despite having QUICK showers, marked towels and linen, lounge area too hot to use when humid, pool too warm etc so what's the point in telling them when they still haven't addressed the previous problems. It's a pity that Rudi's comments to negativity are very rude, and doesn't take them as constructive comments to improve the cons with the villas. We won't be returning.

Such a pity it took you 2.5 months to check back on past reviews. Guests who have stayed before and after you have given great reviews .Nothing more to say.

We visited Bali for the first time this year and stayed at Bonsai Villas for 14 nights. We selected Bonsai due to the great reviews we had seen on Trip Advisor and have to say it was great.

The villas are in a great location, peaceful and excellent value for money. Rudi, Muss, Ari, Gede and Freddy couldn't do enough for us, providing endless cappuccinos by the pool, booking excursions/drivers, recommending things to do in Bali. It was great.

We will definitely be back next year.
