good better best. That's my experience i'd say in my recent trip to Bali. Good weather, Better food variety and the best place i've stay to date. KISS.

You can expect a different experience. Tip top service. Cleanliness at best. Perfect management.

You will know and feel the moment you step in KISS the family-like treatment by its staffs reflects the well man-management of KISS.

Special thanks to Mr Erik and his KISS family

Kudos Kiss.

Travelled in Oct 2011, finally putting up the review in April 2012. Still fresh memories! Good stay overall!

We were blessed with the opportunity to stay in Kiss Bali Villa number 6 for 6 nights.
The staffs were attentive, polite and overall welcoming. The room lightings were beautiful. It definitely set a romantic mood. The Jacuzzi was alright, thou you had to wait 3 hours before the water became hot. So we left the Jacuzzi switch on all through out our stay.

The bathub water wasn’t very hot hence the water cooled down really fast, didn’t really enjoy my time in the tub. On the other hand thou, the rain showers were fabulous. Took a little getting used to the outdoor concept but it was a good experience.

Another plus point about this Villa is that the staff are willing to customize your stay. We had lovely heart-shaped rose filled tubs. Surprised us with chocolates, every time they cleaned up the room. In the evening, they will come and switch on all the lights that just makes the evening beautiful.

The downside, because the villa is beside rice paddies, there are a lot of mosquitoes. (Thou that is normal in Bali) However, the hotel staffs do provide mosquito repellents, baygone spray cans. Upon request they even set up stronger mosquito coils at no extra charge.

The hotel also helps liaise with vendors, to provide motorbikes for rent. It was at 50K rupiah per day. It’s easier to get around Bali on a motorbike. Do look out for traffic jams during the evening period. Especially Friday evenings. We got stuck in a traffic jam for an hour on our way back to the Airport.

The staff were helpful to help give us directions on petrol kiosk or to run an errand for us. When we requested for something or had a query they really strived out to help which was very warm felt.

The down side, the breakfast menu is rather limited. Its wonderful to be served with breakfast in bed or on the upper deck, but after 5 days, we got bored of the food.

Also, though the villa is beautiful, the interior décor does not live up to its name as a 4*/5* hotel and certainly not at the rates that they charge.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Kiss Bali and wouldn’t mind coming back but only because of the wonderful staff. For the amount of money that we paid there are better accommodation with better interior décor and by the beach.

We especially want to thank, Yuda, Eva, Prima and all the other staff from the guards to the gardeners, for their warm smiles and heartfelt greetings.

Our four nights at Kiss Bali exceeded our expectations. The design of the villas is sophisticated and relaxing. The staff, and especially our butler Dewa, were gracious, attentive, and professional. They try extra hard to make the stay enjoyable and to provide guidance on local restaurants and attractions. They gave us several excellent recommendations for nearby restaurants and attractions in Ubud. Breakfast is served in the villa promptly when ordered, and is quite tasty.

One note worth mentioning is that staying in a villa with outdoor bathroom and toilet is a unique experience. This can be slightly inconvenient in the middle of the night, and when it's storming outside. The inconvenience is mostly compensated for by the novelty and exotic feel of such an arrangement. It's actually quite cool!

We loved the experience and will go back as soon as possible.

Thank you for your great feedback to KISS BALI . We are so glad you are happy with your staying and service provided from our staff. We will let Dewa knows about your compliment to him , I believe it will helps motivating our staff more .

We must admit that to have the outdoor concept of bathroom will leave a unique- different feeling and experience for everybody but for sure , We aware of your privacy and our staff knows the situation well and how to handle this based on how tight your privacy requirement is. We are always most welcome to adjust . We were facing an issue with the weather changing drastically in march and we all also didn't expect that we will get the effect from the australia shore in few days and that was unusually for Bali . By end of march till April- now , we are happy to see the sunny comes every day again.

We hope to see you very soon in KISS BALI again. Please do not hesitate to ask us another surprise you will get for your next visit.

Warm regards

We had booked Villa Kenangan for our Honeymoon and it was the perfect setting. The pickup from airport was on time and we were greeted with cold towels and water which was very thoughtful. Eka the person who greeted us was very nice and it was the same with everyone else. The people are very hospitable and make you feel at home.

The Villa was beautiful and my wife and I had a great time. The pool and Jacuzzi were perfectly set. Our honeymoon package included a fantastic candle light dinner which was just perfect. The staff was very helpful and took us to the main Seminyak area whenever we needed too. Although, the location is not central it is just a 5-10 min drive which the staff will be more than happy to arrange for you.

They have wonderful breakfast and I was just in love with the Nasi Goreng :-)

All in all it's a very nice place to say but here are a few things that some might want to note.

1. The Villa has an open architecture and Kenangan is the last villa which in their property. As a result of that there are geckos around. Geckos are harmless and are supposed to be lucky in Indonesia. However, my wife has a huge phobia of geckos and I had to shoo them away every time she had to use the bathroom.

2. I would recommend honeymooning couples to ask the staff to not pre-make the flower bath as it attracts insects and ants. What you can do is ask them to do a flower bath actually when you intend to take it (if you intend to take it) Otherwise it only acts as a wonderful thing to take pictures of and nothing else.

I would recommend this place to all who do not have issues with the above.

Room Tip: Villa Kenangan has a Jacuzzi

Dear Saumil,

Thank you for the great comments and share your opinion about the "open style" building . it's nice and open , match with the tropical environment and Yes, the consequence of living in tropical climates are we also visited by "friends" around as well.. Geckos as you have known are harmless and for indonesian it brings a good luck - occasionally shown up just for eating up the very tiny bugs that flew out from the garden that might landed on high ceiling or high wall and they will hide again.

In general, they all fine and not caused us serious issue. However, Kiss has routine schedule of Pest control and fogging once a week as protection.

We will look your advice re bath tub set up. great idea to implement. Thank you for your attention on this .

Thank you for staying in KISS with the experience . I do really wish the best for you both and I believe your wife will still get the good luck :) . look forward to see you soon in KISS.

Warm regards

We had a pleasant 5 days 4 nights stay at Kiss Villa last Dec 2011. Took a honeymoon package, since we really were on our first honeymoon. They picked us up from the airport, with a very friendly driver, Pak Dewa (very young and down-to-earth man), and they provided cold towel and mineral water during the travel - very considerate :)

We stayed at the farthest villa, Villa Kenanga. When I first saw it, oh my, I completely fell in love with the whole setting! The pool was so beautiful and sky blue, the jacuzzi, the foyer/lounge, the outdoor bathroom, it was so nice! We had a romantic candlelit dinner and the food was sooo delicious. I love the roasted chicken with mushroom sauce. Absolutely divine, and we also love the sparkling wine. They also did a surprise swan setting made of towels, laid down some rose petals on the bed, gave us two chocolate each night, and created marvelous heart-shape bed of roses on our bath-tub, which I will talk about later. But for the record, we really appreciate the gesture and the sweet decoration.

The WiFi is top notch! Very fast!

Unfortunately, having said all the upsides, there were also some downsides to our stay. First, was the very slippery floor. Almost all the floors on the villa were very oily and slippery all day. I'm not sure why, but it really was kinda disturbing since I kept feeling that my feet were dirty all the time, and we had to walk cautiously so we won't fall.

The second, was the constant calling to our room. We truly appreciate that they ask for permission before entering the villa, but even after we told them the night earlier to send the breakfast at 9 AM, just come in with you key, no need to call, they still made the call, which finally came as kinda disturbing in the end. They would call before sending the breakfast, to ask whether they can clean up the room, whether they can clean up the food after breakfast/lunch/dinner, to ensure our spa schedule, to let us know that the therapist has arrived, and so on. Sooo... a bit irritating on that note. You can also hear telephone ringing from the adjacent villa, and sometimes we thought it was our phone. Voices from adjacent villa can be heard from our villa, too. So it was a bit let down on tranquility part.

We also encountered a millipede roaming inside the bathtub, so we'd never actually used the bathtub. But they did a wonderful and amazing bed-of-roses arrangement on the bathtub on our second night stay, and it was stunning! I took a lot of photos of the heart-shape roses, and received so many comments saying how beautiful it was, how they wanted to have a romantic stay like we did, with the roses, and so on. However, I would advise you not to jump in and take a bubble bath with those rose petals, since on the next morning (at bright daylight), we just realized there were lotsa ants walking along the roses. Can't blame the villa for that one, though, the ants got mind on their own.

Oh, speaking of baths, unfortunately, they didn't replace the empty bath gel until you request them to, and the water on the rain shower was rather weak, so it might take longer time to take a bath. If you're looking for a heavy pouring rain shower, well I'm afraid you're not gonna get it here.

The TV didn't have a good reception too, so the pictures were blur/antsy, but you can borrow their DVD collections for free, so it's quite okay. The lunch was also a take-out from another restaurant (they admitted it since their chef was on leave or something), but it was quite delicious. The breakfast was not up to 4 or 5 star hotel standard, but so is some other villas, so if you're a breakfast addict, don't expect too much from staying in a villa.

We also had an incidence when we wanted to check out, because we had completed our payment before we got there, but on their record, we had only paid the down payment for one night. Luckily, we brought a print-out of their confirmation of our payment, so the receptionist did a second check, and it was resolved quickly.

Lastly, the location was not so strategic in terms of there wasn't many walking-distance restaurants, except for Warung Eropa which was nice :) But they will drop you off to Seminyak and surrounding areas, so we really appreciate them for that.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay, but I couldn't say it was the dream honeymoon as advertised on their website (unfortunately). Not bad either, just not the best one.

Hi Lovely Couple,

Congratulation from allof us in KISS to you both for the togetherness as a lovely couple. It such an honor for KISS BALI to be chosen as your holiday venue for your first Honeymoon trip!..

Unfortunately, some of the issues in our service and system have made your experience in KISS is less from the comfort level you are expecting from and We do apologize the inconvenience have made caused to you.

The privacy in KISS,
yes - our Villa design are close and stands side by side to the others . the noise or sounds from other guest are often heard . We have mentioned this to our guests as well to please do not hesitate to talk to us (butler) in case other villa guest seems disturbed and need our help to calm them.
Staff keep double checking on your schedule or asked an access by phone call, i believe we all just worried to disturbing you and looks impolite for our guests by just showing up in your private area. We prefer to check by phone and ensure all are fine - I am aware what your thinking and understand the situation with all the reminder.We have got many guests stayed with very different characters and demand. privacy demand is always a tricky for us especially in our villas which has a door gate that a bit distance from bedroom. Barely guest can heard us knocking and greet them by voice instead guest next door will feel disturbed, thank you for this positive advice - we will ensure staff learn more on how to read guest situation.

We also will looking at again on our Pipe line system in bath and shower- especially the water pressure machine level / timing. thank you for the comment for our maintenance department and House keeping department.

Glad to hear you happy with our honeymoon decoration and set up. Also your great comment about our Honeymoon dishes, thank you.

The kitchen staff issue is a very last minute case we had , We had staff in charge as the replacement but unfortunate got to back home for sick. She got asthma. Thank you for your comment on breakfast - will pass this to our Cook to look at his breakfast set up over all.

Really appreciate on your overall given to us with all constructive comments . We will do our best for sure to minimize issue straight away. Please do not hesitate to come back again with much better experience and more than happy to contact me directly for any special requirement

Thank you for staying in KISS BALI

Warm regards

4 of us ladies wanted a short getaway (4 days) to bali. It was the first time to Bali for my sister and her friends and 2nd (since 4 years ago) for me. We had initially booked another villa until a friend recommended us to stay at the Kiss Bali instead and I m so glad we made that choice. Way before we arrive, we already felt taken care of. Responses / communications were always prompt and thoughtful.

On the first day we arrived, our butler, Agung came and pick us up, served us cold mineral water and cold towels. That little thought to keep us hydrated was lovely!
Agung were always polite and thoughtful when we chatted throughout the journey back to the villa. Warm conversations that was never intrusive.
As we arrived approx. at 12noon, he asked if we wanted to stop over somewhere to have lunch first or go anywhere that we wished to etc.. before checking in. That was so sweet of him to offer but we just can't wait to get to the Villa.

As soon as we arrive, check in was fuss free complete with welcome drinks and canapés.
Agung then showed us to our villa and did an introduction on the amenities within the villa and at my request, fetch us out again to where we want to have lunch within Seminyak. No further questions asked. The best part was he overheard us chatting in the car about possibly doing some light shopping after lunch at Jalan Raya Seminyak and offered to wait for us to finish lunch and fetch us there. The reason behind his thoughtfulness was because it’s peak hour, traffic were super heavy and we have never been to Seminyak areaso he wanted to make sure we were going to the right place and not get lost.

On the first night, we had to stay in a separate 1bedroom villa as they were fully booked during our reservations and then move to the 2bedroom villa on the 2nd day. Everything was planned so nicely that we didn't have to worry bout a single thing. We just left our bags in our individual 1bedroom villa, left for our outings and when we came back at 7pm, everything was done with even the correct bags placed in each bedroom.
The jacuzzi was even turn on for us and turndown service all done to prepare us for the night...we also ordered room service for dinner and absolutely love the Soto Ayam there.. besides being inexpensive too.

The decors within the villa were modern & beautiful. Lightings at night were not too bright nor too dim…it was just perfect. Clean pool, huge lounge area, big bathtub and non intrusive staff to give us all the privacy we need but always fast to response when we called. What more could we ask for.
Reading one of the feedback and in my own opinion, I would also like to think that if your expectations are set far too high, then it is likely that you would be always disappointed with every villa you visit in Bali. Wear and tear is a norm and I’m sure the staff do their utmost to upkeep in such harsh weather…in this case, I couldn’t find any. It could be because I’m on a holiday mood and the superb service surpassed every other things.

Breakfast was pre-ordered the night before with the time we preferred and always served on time… that is the most impressive I feel. If I said 0830hrs, the butler would always come by slightly earlier to set the tables and you will see the food arriving at no later than 0830hrs. We met our butler, Dewa on most days and this boy, is just simply marvelous. One of those days when we decided to stay in, we could even see him sweat buckets just to fulfil our request. We just basically did nothing but chill and they will do the rest.

Overall, I rate my experience with Kiss Bali 10/10 and can’t wait to go back again. One of our friends also carelessly dropped her diamond earring somewhere in the pool at night and one of the staff actually took a torchlight, dive into the pool and search for it. She was absolutely grateful when he found it. I remember his nickname is “Gecko”. Well done! I think such level of service must have been well-trained by Ericht, the GM / Management to instill in the staff how much pride they should have in their job.

Now, to say Kiss Bali is e best is an understatement. They are just beyond brilliant!
