Stepping through the gate into the sanctuary of Villa Kipas is like entering a little private paradise.
It is just gorgeous- the lush foliage, the fish, the fountains and the beautiful pool. Reality is even better than the photos!
The villa itself is spacious, modern and well maintained. Every detail has been thought of. Printed cards to give to taxi drivers with the villas location, mobiles for local calls preloaded with helpful numbers, snacks, beer and soft drinks supplied on arrival.
This is an easy holiday destination- everything can be provided for you if you so wish- laundry service, driver, in house massage ( you get a welcome complmentry massage too), tour bookings or you can do it yourself. We found the laundry up the road from the villa ( Turn left as you come out of the villa, over the bridge and up the road a couple of minutes) very satisfactory and the lovely lady in the warung on the way to the laundry had softdrink, beer etc very reasonably priced. The mini mart on the other side of the road, depending on who was behind the counter, could be dodgy- best to avoid.
The staff are delightful and eager to please. The breakfasts were lovely. We especially loved the Indonesian food choices and the banana pancakes. The juices and fruit were spectacular.
We felt safe at all times- high walls, cameras and security guards plus in room safes.
Easy walk to beachfront beanbag bars, shopping and restaurants.
The kids loved the pool and the " swim up bar" ( cabana end of the pool) for their iced milos! Their only complaint was no children's TV channel in English. WiFi was excellent infact better than we have at home.
I have no hesitation recommending Villa Kipas and the owner was wonderful to communicate with.
Thank you once again for our fantastic few days in Villa Kipas. We are regular visitors to the villa and it does not disappoint. The Villa is in a great location, close to the beach and only a short taxi ride to the main shopping area of Seminyak. The fabulous Gede looked after us and cooked us the most amazing breakfasts. The owners are a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. I can attest to their recommendations in the compendium folder, we tried as many as we could during our short stay. We look forward to coming back again soon.
Recently I spent 4 blissful days at Villa Kipas on my way to join a group of friends to celebrate a birthday.From the moment I arrived in Bali- met by my very own driver, Ketut I was totally looked after and felt like I was at home surrounded by "friends". However these "friends" cook you breakfast, give you massages and facials, tidy up after you and and drive you where you need to be! It was truly relaxing and just what I needed! BUT having all these "friends" about did not ever impinge upon my privacy. They worked to a schedule and are in and out completing anything you need so as to leave you free to walk to the beach, swim in your own private pool, wander through the Seminyak shops, go for sunset drinks and of course savor the fabulous food! Villa Kipas is right there close to everything while being its own serene haven away from everything too.
I didn't want to leave- but made it easier by re-booking to come back in December!
A fabulously beautiful villa, right where you want to be with your own space and privacy! Love it! Want it!!
Fantastic location, no more than 100m from the beach. The staff were absolutely outstanding with nothing to much trouble and the Villa itself is wonderfully maintained. As mentioned in previous reviews its exactly as the pictures show and dealing with the Australian owner was a pleasure, again nothing was to much trouble, emails were dealt with promptly and suggestions and information received was first class. Had stayed at the Oberoi Bali previously but tried the Villa option this time which was a great move and excellent value for money.
Will definitely be returning!!
Thank you for our fantastic 11 days in villa Teratai, which is the sister villa to Villa Kipas just next door. From the moment we walked in the villa was just perfect, it was everything that it said it would be, the staff are amazing, especicaly wifi. We felt safe at all times, it is close to the beach and to resturants. i would highly recommended this villa for either couples or families. thank you to Neil the owner for all the correspondence before we left for our trip, he made it very easy. we will be back for another stay.
Being avid Bali travellers and lovers of staying in private villas we have stayed in our fair share of Seminyak properties. We have stayed at Villa Kipas twice now and each time has been a wonderful experience.
The villa itself is so well furnished and maintained. It is much larger than your standard two bedroom villa. The staff are always warm and welcoming and there is nothing better than coming downstairs in the morning to a lovely cooked breakfast and a smiling face to wish you good morning.
The location doesn't get much better....just 100m from Seminyak Beach. All of our favourites haunts like Kudeta, La Plancha and Gado Gado are all within a short walk along the beach. There are not many great villas so close to the beach in Seminyak!
Villa Kipas has all the touches with lovely amenities in the bathrooms, an in-house spa service, mobile phones for the guests to use and an lots of handy tips of where to eat and drink.
If you are looking for a stunning, 2 bedroom villa near the beach in Seminyak it's hard to go past this option.
We have just returned from a week of rest and relaxation at Villa Kipas and I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. Its a perfect location for families and also for couples, just meters from the beach, and a short walk to shops and the local well known restaurants. Before we left for Bali, the (Aust) owner contacted us with suggestions of what to do and where to go during our stay, so we were well informed when we arrived.
There are so many positives about this villa, it's exactly as the photos show - tranquil, spacious, with friendly helpful staff, and a Birthday cake and chorus for my husband on arrival! Thank you all so much!
We'll certainly be returning guests to Villa Kipas next time we visit Bali.
