Reviewed January 19, 2014

Phils Place is just a delight to stay in. Close to bars and shops and restaurants. The Hotel is beoutique clean tidy and the stsaff are outstanding at every level. The breakfast is felxable and nice. The bar is small and the pool is warming and perfect and has a louge area next to it. NOW the massage is the best I have ever had and is professional form start to end. We stayed there last year when next door construction was under way and it made no differnce at all. We are nbooked in again to stay In APRIL 2014. Excited as this place is perfect for a relaxing holiday and close to Bars we same sex people like, some quiet some crazy but within five minutes walk. Its safe and its secure.

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice, to choose one means you miss out on the others

My partner and I stayed here on a trip to Bali and really loved this place! It's like staying at a home away from home and we were lucky to have come across it. Firstly the location is perfect as it is only a short walk from the shopping streets of Seminyak and very close to all the gay bars which are great for a fun night out. The staff here were so welcoming and friendly and special thanks to Dodi and Aldi for being so warm and welcoming. The place only has 5 rooms and we stayed in the upstairs room which was superb with a large bedroom, bathroom with a beautiful shower and bath, and a verandah area which was perfect for relaxing during the day. Also a small downstairs pool which was fantastic. The staff take your breakfast orders the night before and make it for you in the morning whenever you decide to wake up. Staff are there all the time so it is very safe and secure and you can come back from your night out whenever you like knowing you can still get in. They also organised our laundry to be done and had it back the next day. Phil you have an amazing place and we will be back for sure !

We stay here again over Christmas and received a warm welcome back. The location is perfect for Bars and Beach. Service is above and beyond. Rooms are very clean and breakfast is very good too. Definitely staying again in 2014.

I don't write reviews but Phil's villa is exceptional. The villa is in the heart of Seminyak and very close (walking distance ) to major entertainment and the beach. As soon as you enter the gate, you are greeted with a sense of tranquility as you steps onto the little pond and the Buddha waterfall. The bedrooms are well decorated and more than what I expected for the price. There is the pool in the middle of the villa and a serene back garden, with a well set-up massage gazebo and outdoor showers. But most of all, the owner (Phil) and his staff provide the best service- and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. Highly recommend this villa, and look forward to going back.

We stayed at Phils Place in May 2012 (sorry i had always thought i had written a review back then). Stayed in the garden view room nearest the kitchen./ bar area.
when we had first booked it was to be a shared bathroom, though to our surprise when we arrived there had been a freshly built onsite in our room. Definitely made a difference to the stay, allowing for a bit more peace and privacy being so close to where staff and other guests congregate at times.
The staff are so friendly and awesome, were always there no matter what time of day or night to attend your needs.
At the time we were there all the construction was going on next door, though to be honest even that wasn't a big deal.
the location is very convenient for clubs, cafes shops etc. Pool is awesome to lounge in after a bit of a walk around the area or a lovely day trip out some where.
Breakfast was included and a great relief to wake up any time off the day and still be offered.
Returned to Bali this May in 2013, alas we had a girlfriend travelling with us so had to stay elsewhere, though dropped by for a visit to see the guys. Looking forward to staying there again soon. Would definitely recommend giving it a try.

This is a great little gem hidden away in Seminyak yet close top all major places one wants to go.
The staff looks really after you and produces a great breakfast every morning. Also the pick-up service from the airport was great and so was the return trip.
Will I visit again? For sure!!
The great thing is for repeat visits they give you 10 % discount.

Had a wonderful stay in one of the garden rooms. Nicely appointed and very comfortable. Beautiful gardens just outside my doors. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Don't miss a massage by Agus....very relaxing!! 2 problems during my stay...no hot water on 2 occasions...had to take cold water showers and had an issue flushing my toilet for a few days ( staff said and issue due to a previous guest). Great location if you want bars...about a 15 minute walk or 2$ cab ride to the beach. Will definitely stay here again.
