This is my second time at Yarravillas and one of our daughters stayed there for her second time in the villas and is booked to stay there again in November My husband had not stayed there previously and he was very impressed as was I my first time. The cleanliness, the friendliness, the great location and the serenity were just a few of the many positives Yarravillas has to offer. The area is very quiet although close to the main street that takes you to Seminyak all the way through to Kuta. Putu and the rest of the staff could not do enough for us, they went out of their way to make sure that we not only had a great stay but offered and succeeded in helping/organising anything that we required. We look forward to staying there again on our next trip back to Bali, however, we are a bit concerned availability to the very good reviews. Thanks again all, you made our stay all the better

We stayed at Bali Yarravillas for 6 days in a one bedroom apartment. Our beds were turned back every night and freshly made the following morning, with fresh towels and face washers placed in the bathroom and drinks topped up in the fridge. Don't bother going to buy them anywhere else! All the staff were always friendly and helpful. John the owner had put together a very helpful folder of all the best places to eat - some of them marked a MUST! In particular we loved METIS in Pettinet a short taxi ride away from Bali Yarravillas. Probably one of the best meals I've ever had - and it was $140.00 for 2. Putu was wonderful and helped with reservations for restaurants, booking in for a massage at Bali Spa or booking a driver for the day. We had a wonderful stay, away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak, but close enough to walk up and have breakfast or grab a meal. We would definitely come back....

What fun it is going to all the great eateries in Bali and reviewing them so it helps our guests know where to go, it is a serious challenge as there are so many. Emma and Brian thanks for posting your Trip Advisor review and for appreciating our service. We look forward to seeing you both again soon.

My partner, friend and I have just returned from another wonderful 15 day holiday at the Yarravillas… We were so impressed after our stay last year that we couldn’t wait to return again. We were not disappointed! We received such gracious service from all the Bali Yarravilla gang and it was lovely to see Putu, Ketut and Rudy again. The cleanliness and tranquilly of the property is still as fantastic as we remembered it! A big thanks to Putu and Rudy who helped Jamie with his laptop when it couldn’t connect to the internet (a problem with the laptop not with the WiFi service provided!) To say we are having withdrawal symptoms now we’re back in Melbourne would be an understatement! Our only regret was that we didn’t get to see John & Gloria again BUT keep an eye on your email John as we’ll be contacting you soon to re-book our 2013 stay!

My partner and I stayed at the Bali Yarravillas for a week in August 2012 and we absolutely loved it! A very idyllic setting, lovely pool, sun loungers for every guest (no waking up early to reserve one!) We stayed in the Hotel style room, which was perfect for a couple! Spotlessly clean! The staff clean the rooms twice a day!!! The cleanest resort we have ever stayed in!
We read reviews before booking, and noticed a couple of comments about not having enough storage in the hotel style room - which is nonsense! There is a wardrobe, cupboard storage with shelves, plus extra shelves so PLENTY!
There is a guest information book in the room for your arrival, full of all the essentials, where to eat and drink, where to get massages, day trips, taxis etc etc. Very useful, we really appreciated that as it was our first time to Bali and had no idea!
There is a short walk down a small alley/laneway to the main road, which in fairness does look a bit dodgy, but is absolutely safe! We also did see a couple of wild dogs, but they are not harmful, in fact they were scared of people walking past them and hid. Being a short walk from the main road is a good thing as from the villas you cannot hear any of the noise on the street! Very peaceful.
The staff at Yarravillas are so nice! Always smiling and asking how you are and checking you are OK and you have everything you need. Putu, who is in charge is very friendly, and very good at his job, ensuring everything is done properly and the rooms are cleaned thoroughly (which they were everyday)
They provide towels, flannels, pool towels, shampoo, body wash and hand soap. There is also a mini-bar fridge with bintangs, water, coke, sprite, fanta, soda water and a few other beverages, which they just replace each time you drink them. The price is very cheap in the rooms for the drinks, cheaper than the bintang shop which is just around the corner, and saves you having to carry bags of drinks back to the hotel too!
If you want to book anything ie massages, dinner reservations, taxis, excursions, even takeaway food, you just need to ask one of the boys at reception and they will do it for you, no problem!
The location is very good, close to all the main shopping streets, close enough to walk to the beach, and if you want to see more of bali, taxis (if booked) will pick you up from the reception and take you wherever you like for very little money!
Overall we had a fantastic time in Bali, staying at the Bali Yarravillas.
We will definitely book in again in the future, and recommend to friends and family! We have already suggested to my aunt that she stay with them too!
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable :)

We booked our stay just few weeks out to stay with family in a two bedroom villa for 7 nights, unfortunately commitments changed and we arrived to stay in the two bedroom villa on our own. The villa is huge with two identical bedrooms with dressing room and outside bathroom and open air shower. In the middle is the lounge, dining and kitchen areas which again are ample sized, with all amenities including 42" TV with pay TV and DVD player, the two bedrooms also have 26" TVs with DVD players. The villa is very new and modern in every way with split system air cons in all rooms as well as ceiling fans.

Upon arriving we were greeted by Wayan who showed us to our villa and checked us in, extremely painless and pleasant way to check in compared with large hotels. We chose one of the two bedrooms to sleep and setup in and then went out for a quick meal on the street in Jl raya. Upon returning to our room the bed had been turned down for the night we had a couple of drinks and turned in for the night.

We woke in the morning after a good nights sleep on the comfortable kingsize bed and had breakfast again on the street at the seminyak
cafe. We returned and relaxed by the pool on the sun lounges which did not have the usual towel reservation system of the Europeans, we spent most of the day just hanging out at the pool, when we were introduced to the supervisor Putu, when I mentioned that the fridge was a bit light on for large bintang he quickly stocked me up with very reasonably priced large bintang's 21k.

Putu also assisted me with obtaining 10 embroided polo shirts at a good price through a supplier, I have to say that he is an asset to john and gloria the owners of Bali yarravillas, he is most attentive to guest needs and quickly sorts everything out without hesitation. In fact all staff (the lads) there were friendly and helpful but Putu was the stand out which is why he is the supervisor obviously.

All I can say to prospective travellers please don't stay because I want to stay there every time I come to Bali ( ha ha).

Thank you to John and Gloria for providing such a great location with great staff, keep up the good work guys, I can't believe I can still book some times in this year!

We spent 9 days in Bali for our son's wedding. We chose Bali Yarravillas because the reviews were all good. Let me tell you they were all spot on! Would recommend anyone going to Bali that wants somewhere spotless, well maintained and helpful staff stay here. We stayed in the hotel room for the first couple of days then moved up to the hotel room with the sitting room. Loved the extra space in the hotel room with sitting room and highly recommend it as a choice for couples. Looked at the apartments one day out of interest they also looked amazing! Thanks John and the boys for a memorable stay in Bali!!!

Room Tip: For couples-If you want abit more room choose the hotel room with the sitting room if you don't...
