“Couldn't ask for better anywhere in Bali,”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A wonderful villa with friendly staff right in the heart of seminyak. We had no real need to go outside the beautiful Villa although when we did we could walk to the beach,
the shopping, markets and of course some excellent restaurants. Friendly and enthusiastic staff made us feel welcome and at home. A perfect Balineese destination for a group of several couples. Loved every minute of it.

“Your very own Shangri-La”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our flight was delayed and the baggage took forever so we were a bit tired and grumpy as we emerged from the terminal. Things began to improve when we were met by a cheerful woman who whisked us away in the car organised by Rino (at, as it turned out, a very reasonable rate) and delivered us to the door of Eko Villa. The imposing double doors were opened by a smiling face and hey, presto!- we entered our very own Shangri-La, beautiful, peaceful and spacious.
The staff were on hand to greet us and to offer long, cold, delicious ginger-mint concoctions while we took in our surroundings. We'd ordered dinner, so after choosing our rooms and unpacking, we had a swim in the pool followed by drinks at the outdoor bar. Dinner was served in the dining room at the huge teak table and very good it was too. After we ordered our breakfast for the morning, the staff wished us goodnight and we had the whole enormous place to ourselves. What a great start to our holiday.
The outdoor living room and the pool were the best things about the villa for me. The pool is the best private pool I've ever seen; set in the lovely garden, long enough to do 20m laps if that's your pleasure, ten feet deep so it's always beautifully cool even in the Bali heat and there's always a part of it in the shade. There's also a small pool/spa for little kids to splash in and two enormous daybeds with umbrellas for lounging, snoozing or chatting.
The bedrooms are very comfortable with great beds and efficient air-conditioning, cable TV and good sound system. The bathrooms are lovely and mine had fish swimming in pools under the boardwalk that leads to the bath and the shower.
The staff were friendly and efficient and the place is immaculate. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They even let me feed the fish in the huge pond. Rino, the manager is a very pleasant and capable chap with extensive knowledge of Bali and the local area and organised a trip to Ubud for us and a memorable evening at a beachside bar followed by an excellent dinner at a local restaurant.
As someone else has said in reviewing this place- "The problem is that you don't want to leave". Not such a problem really, when it's such great place to kick back and unwind. We were sorry to leave and would be more than happy to come back.
Many thanks to Rino & his terrific staff- Gabriel, Dary, Katut, Wayan, & the lads on the front door.

“The most incredible place I have ever stayed, I am speechless!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

From the moment we made an enquiry to the moment we were waving goodbye at the end of our stay with Eko Villa we received the best of everything.

The villa is breathtaking. As Rino the villa manager was taking us through we could not believe we had found such a place and wondered if we would ever leave in order to explore Bali. All rooms were more than comfortable and very well equiped with a true Bali feel. The staff ensured the entire villa was spotless everyday and that all our needs were catered for. It was clear that the staff wanted us to enjoy our stay and could not do enough for us. They quickly identified what we liked and ensured it was presented with a smile, checked in with us to ensure our needs were met yet somehow made themselves scarce when no service was required ensuring our privacy.

The position is excellent, close to shops and a variety of restaraunts. Close to the action yet so peacful and serene.

The food that was prepared for us was fantastic and all made to our requirements. Massages were arranged every day upon request, nothing was too much trouble.

We would like to thank the entire staff for their amazing service and professionalism. Staying at the Eko Villa truly made our holiday one of the best weve ever had. As we were waving goodbye we felt we were leaving a family behind and started to plan my next trip back.

Amazing!

“Amazing staff and beautiful villa!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Eko villa exceeded all of my expectations! The accommodations are truly beautiful. There are four rooms each with its own bathroom. There is also a living room, lounge area, and TV room, not to mention plenty of space to lie around the pool. The house was very clean and the facilities were in good condition. It is also located near a lot of restaurants, bars, boutiques and beaches. The best part about Eko villa, however, was most definitely its amazing staff!! We had housekeepers who tidied up the rooms every day while we were gone, our very own personal chef who could cook basically anything we asked, a butler, and our own driver. The manager, Rino, was super helpful in setting up tours, providing directions, booking spa appointments, basically addressing any/all problems or inquiries! He even helped us with our friend's surprise engagement on super short notice! (For more details see Doug's review below.) I had such a wonderful time here--I definitely didn't want to leave! I would highly recommend staying here!

“Simply outstanding "pictures do not do the place justice"...”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 for a stay in May 2012

Bit of a late review... stunning does not actually describe this villa, in every way, every single aspect from design to staff has been well thought out and planned. The bedrooms are huge, with comfortable beds and full tv and sound system ( not forgetting the all important air conditioning). Also at about 7 o clock every night without fail the staff would spray mosquito repellent in the room pretty awesome if like everybody else you dont like being bitten by mosquito's.. The outdoor bathrooms were aw inspiring. The staff were all friendly and happy to help with anything we needed either at the villa or in and around Bali and if your looking to travelling away from Bali or need any advice on nightlife Etc just speak to Rino he's very good at sorting everything out. I would most definitley recommend..
just a word of warning YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO LIVE..

Thanks again Rino and all the other members of staff...

“Awesome Villa”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

Myself, my wife and 3 other friends stayed at the Ekovilla for 10+ days in March.

Booking: Booking the villa was very easy. Emailed directly with the villa manager, Rino, who replied very quickly. Answered any and all questions, provided additional information and worked with us on dates and any special requests we had. All in all a very pleasant experience dealing with Rino is booking the Villa.

Arrival: Airport pick-up was waiting for us as we arrived outside of the airport. Van was air-conditioned and large, with cold water waiting for us to drink on the way to the villa. The trip from the airport was a quick 20 minutes. We arrived at the villa and our first thought was "wow, this is where we are staying - incredible!!". We were offered some refreshing welcome drinks and the staff quickly unloaded our bags, showed us around, and took our bags to our rooms.

Pool: The pool is huge and clean, and is quite deep - may be a problem with young children, however there is also a small "whirpool" type pool next to the main pool that would be suitable for young children. The stairs into the pool are large and make it easy to get in and out - you don't have to pull yourself up over a ledge or climb a skinny ladder.

Bedrooms: All 4 bedrooms have large beds and unique indoor/outdoor bathrooms. Each bedroom is equipped with a TV, DVD player, ipod dock and many speakers. Air-conditioning worked well and kept the rooms cool at all times. Rooms also had alot of storage space.

Media Room: Large "theatre room" downstairs with a projector and large screen. Was great for watching the odd movie in the evening before going out. Sound system was great. Also air-conditioned.

Kitchen and Dining Room: Huge table in the dining room, can fit many people. Kitchen is smaller but well equipped, but you don't spend much time in the kitchen with the staff available.

Outdoor Area, Bar Area: This was the best part about the villa, how it felt like perfect place to relax or party - your choice. The bar area next to the pool has a fridge and sink, and a great sound system that has speakers throughout the villa outdoors. Was always shade and was always sun available, just depended where you were sitting or lounging. Also there were power plugs EVERYWHERE! Made it easy to use a computer/watch a movie/charge a phone while laying in the sun or sitting at the bar.

Staff: We were a bit .... worried? what is was going to be like having a full staff around and what it would be like. Our worries quickly disappeared as the staff was very discreet, yet always there when you needed something. They always worked to your schedule and fit in well. For example, our group of five all got up at different times - from 8am to 1pm some days - they made breakfast fresh for each person as they got up at different times! The staff were excellent and it was a pleasure to have them as part of our holiday.

Food: The food the staff prepared was very good. Whatever you wanted, they went and bought groceries and prepared the meal for a time of your choosing. They made the perfect amount of food for the number of people eating, and everything was cooked and plated beautifully. Food was so good, we only went out to a restaurant one night out of 10. Strongly recommend getting a bunch of satays made up every now and then and keeping in the fridge - they made the perfect midnight snack!

Villa Manager, Rino: We cannot say enough good things about Rino. He made sure we were always taken care of. This included bringing in spa services for the girls, setting up golf for the guys, or researching shipping rates for us. Rino was more then happy to look into anything for us, recommending many local attractions and where to go shopping for specific items. Anything he could to help us, including storing luggage for a part of our group for a week after we left, he did. He always made sure our drivers spoke english and set us up with great rates. Rino was great to deal with and we cant wait to go back and stay in his villa.

Location: Location was great for what we were looking for. Very close to the beach and local attractions, including Ku-De-Ta and shopping/restaurants - walk able or a very very cheap and short taxi ride. Taxis are very cheap in Bali. Villa was located down a small alley which made it very quiet - no noise from all the traffic and scooters in Bali.

Villa Overall: The villa is better than advertised, the pictures online do not do this place justice as to how big this place is. The villa is not in a "new" condition, but the price also reflects this. When I say not in a "new" condition I mean that the place has a few nicks and scratches, but is still beautiful and safe. When speaking with the villa manager, they actually have a fixed maintenance schedule in which certain aspects of the villa are replaced or repaired. It was evident that certain sections of the villa are "new" having been recently replaced. Any issues (which you will have no matter where you stay - no place is perfect) we did have were minor and dealt with a smile and fixed/corrected immediately, regardless of the time of the day. Would definitely stay here again! Felt very safe staying here with the round the clock security. Maybe the best way to describe this place is it was like staying in a five star resort, but it felt like home.
