We stayed here begin of june for our honeymoon. We chose Kei Villa based on the photos we have seen on internet and normally we expect the photo's to give a bit a improved version of the actual room. But in this case the photo's you see is what you get. The hotel has 3 villa's which makes the communication with the staff very personal since they do not have to remember 100 different guests.
Wow, we were impressed. The villa is extremely big. We were with 2 persons, but even for a family of 4 it is spatious. Also very clean. The condition of the villa is not optimal (some lights did not work and when using the shower the bathroom sort of flooded. But I have to say that these are (for us) very minor inconveniences. We had Villa 1 which is located near the road. This will give some traffic noise but you do not hear this from your bedroom.
The breakfast is served in your room, you can fill in a day in advance what you want for breakfast and at what time you want it. Then the next day they come bring it and even prepare it for you in your villa's kitchen.
Hotel staff is very helpfull and friendly. There was construction work going on next to the hotel and there was sort of a gap in the roof. When I told the staff about it it was fixed right away. They really take their time to assist you.
Seminyak is a nice area. Although there are lots of streest without sidewalks there are lots of shops and walking on the streets is do-able (although I would prefer if they would build sidewalks..). The hotel is located very nice at the beginning of Jl Petitinget making it close to the beach (walking distance). Also in this street there is a typical Javanese restaurant called Kolega. This is very good REAL indonesian food and very cheap as well (locals eat here as well). We accidentally went to one of the beach clubs (the Potato Head, my wife wanted to eat potato's), but this is like when we were in the US. And with US pricing (and they do not even have fresh juices, its all syrop!). So my advice would be to avoid the beach clubs and go to the warungs (indonesian restaurants) where they have fresh juices made from real fruit ;).
The wifi is great, the access point is located in the room self. Also you have a bike in your room which you can use whenever. We did not use it since we just rented a motorbike from across the street. There is a loempia lady passing the hotel each day, just give the hotel staff 5000 rupia and they will buy a portion for you (we can recommend it). One drawback is that we had much more mosquitoes here than when we were in Tanjung Benoa. The hotel staff tries to minimize this by putting incense in the room but it was not sufficient for us.
Since we also stayed in another villa (same prized, tony's villa) I can only be very very positive about this hotel and strongly recommend anyone to go to this hotel when staying in Seminyak. Until now this was the nicest villa where I have stayed ever.
As I have seen with other comments and also experienced when booking, the prices for a villa vary a lot. We payed around 150 euro a night but when my father tried to book it for a week it was more than 1000 euro a night. Not sure why that is.
