My partner & I stayed here for 10 days in May & just gotta say that it was fabulous!
Apart from the actual Villa itself, which is truly gorgeous, & has everything on hand for you to use, such as insect repellent, sunscreen, umbrellas, power adapters, complimentary massages, shower wash, shampoo etc, there is nothing too big that the staff can't help you with. They think of everything to ensure that your stay goes smoothly.
We had a couple of touristy days organised for us after letting them know specifically what we wanted to do & see, so all we had to do was be ready for pick up each morning by the driver that had been arranged for us.
This of course costs a little extra, but was well worth it, as we felt well looked after.
Gede, our assigned butler was just lovely & can cook a mean omelette, & cleans it all up afterwards! We didn't have to raise a finger, which enabled our stay there to be 1 of complete relaxation.
Cleaning & maintenance (pool cleaning etc) is taken care of daily too.
The beach & many, many cafes & restaurants are very close by, so walking anywhere wasn't a big deal either. We got to know a few locals nearby, which was just terrific.
I particularly loved feeding the fish in the Villa ponds each day. They're just like puppies, they swam over to me each morning when I went out to feed them, they were so cute!
The highlight of our stay there however was when my partner asked me to marry him outside under the verandah, near the pool, so we won't forget this particular holiday or Villa in a hurry.
Special thanks to the owner Neil, who was so helpful via email prior to our arrival, by providing so much local information & suggestions of restaurants & places we might like to check out whilst there.
All in all, we had a terrific & memorable stay!
We had the most beautiful holiday here, from the moment we booked communication was clear and the process was smooth. Everything from the return transfers ; daily breakfast ; the staff welcome was joy. The villa is stunning, one of the best I have seen. The proximity to the beach is fantastic and there are an abundance of restaurants nearby. We felt very secure in the villa and although there was a bit of road noise it did not worry us at all.
Villa Kipas took my breath away from the moment I walked in the door. Form the koi pond stone path entrance to the lagoon pool and outdoor shower, there is natural beauty at every turn. The staff is wonderful and Gede, the private chef, made us droolworthy breakfasts every morning. The location couldn't be better as everything seemed to be just a short walk away. We'd love to stay again and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
I have just returned from a week long stay at Villa Kipas with my family. Friends also stayed in adjoining villas- so we had our own privacy- own pools, kitchens, bathrooms and space- while still enjoying the holiday together!
Villa Kipas is beautifully appointed with the owners giving thought to your every last need. The staff are friendly and very helpful- always smiling and making our stay "personal'! The location is fabulous!!! Start the day with a wander 2 minutes to the beach, return for an in-house massage and a swim in our private pool, followed by breakfast cooked by the staff in the villa. By the way- the food is fabulous!! It's hard to come home to no Nasi goreng for breakfast! They even sourced ikan bilis for us to enjoy.
The day is then open for some adventure trips (which the staff organised for us!) maybe a little wander through the shops (just a few blocks away) or a day by the pool. The "kids" loved having wifi, TV and movies at their disposal too! It was a wonderful holiday for a family of young adults and us oldies! Time well spent together as a family and with friends- surrounded by everything we needed and more!
We are now planning next years trip!!
Neil & Julie made our stay delightful- from the warm welcome by the staff, complimentary massage. Everything in the Villa has been thought out, no need to bring sunscreen, insect repellant & even hats ,- its all supplied- its the little things that count. The cold water fountain was ideal , no need to buy our own bottled water.The restaurants & sight seeing destinations that were suggested were great, 2 local mobile phones we used were very helpful, The staff were very attentive & always willing to assist. I would highly recommend Villa Kipas, we will be back
We stayed here for a week straight! From 3 months before arriving Neil, the owner, has been nothing but great and helpful. He answered ALL the questions I had (PLENTY of questions) gave me great recommendations and helped me booked reservations in advance.
Once we arrived in Bali. We got picked up by mas Ketut. He was very quite but very kind. When we arrived to the actual villa
OH MY GOSH..
Pictures doesn't do justice. The place was so much more beautiful in person.. from the fountains and the fishes to the big open space inside. I fell in love!!! We arrive we had mas Gede welcome us with a fruit platter and some fresh juice.
Long review short, villa Kipas is amazingly beautiful, clean and very discreet from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Seminyak. We were like five minutes away from the beach and like ten minutes away from the boutiques and restaurant.
Overall I would stay here again next time we are in Bali. The only thing that would be a negative for me is my stay was too short.
Staff wise, mas Gede is so friendly, his cooking is great always smiling. I recommend getting messages in the villa by mba Sri. Her strokes are so healing and relaxing.
Thanks you guys for giving us a great stay!! Can't wait to stay there again!!
The villa exceeded our expectations. The owner and staff were suberb, from sending emails with suggestions on what to do before arriving on holiday to ensuring that all our needs were met whilst there.
The villa had all the amenities you could wish for including 2 mobiles phones which could be used to make local calls.
The location couldn't have been better, 3 mins walk in one direction to the beach or 5 minutes in the other direction to shops, restaurants and bars.
