Take my advice and take your money elsewhere. It really isnt worth the 300+ USD they are charging a night plus taxes etc. So you would like to know why not?
Ok - so according to the booking the benefits that were supposed to be included was a car service from airport and back to airport, refreshments and welcome drink, welcome pack of drinks and snacks, complimentary wifi, butler etc.
Well we got hardly anything that was promised. The so called butler (aka the guy who was sleeping in the little space next to the villa with the keys) spoke not a single word of english so he was absolutely no help when we needed to ask a question about the villa.
There was no welcome drink, no welcome pack, no complimentary snacks etc - ok this I was willing to be forgiving about since we were not intending to spend our time eating and drinking in the villa. Then the next thing I realised was that the wifi did not work resulting in me not being able confirm ANY of my pre booked appointments for spas etc. This was an absolute inconvenience I ended up having to confirm everything online on my blackberry costing me a $200 for 5 min use. Oh and forget about trying to get in touch with the office, the phone number on the webpage does not work,
Now lets move on to the features of the villa. We wanted to use the pool which looked nice enough from afar but quickly changed our mind when we realised that there was mould all over the tiles. The bed was a hard mattress, the shower head was not cleaned properly and water would only come out from certain holes not others (bizarre). Room had absolutely no ambience so do not come here expecting some kind of 5 star. It is a 3.5-4 star at BEST and being very generous.
The helper ladies were friendly enough and they did make a decent breakfast for us each morning but always left the floor in a dirty mess until late in the afternoon when they came back to clean the room.
Another thing about this villa is that nobody knows it. It was always a struggle getting out and coming back to the place becuase it is in a small street off the main one and the villa has NO SIGNS (beware when you are coming at night). So after a weekend of nothing working, nothing being delivered as promised we thought at least the car service will be a sure thing. But of course, next thing we knew, we were called two cabs for 125,000 rupiahs each because they suddenly did not know about the car service that had been promised and of course because I had no internet on my phone I couldn't pull up the email that had this written on there (I then double checked this when i got home and yes - there it was). WAT!!! I was furious and by this stage I was done with this faulty towers accommo and now want to help others to save their money. Seriously there are some beautiful accommodation options in Seminyak. I would NOT have stayed here if my friend hadnt organised it. I kind of guessed it from the other reviews (previous reviewers complained of missing jewellery, aircon faulty, wifi not working etc). Do yourself a favour and don't take your chances and ruin a perfect holiday with this villa.
