I wanted to thank Sahana Villas and its team + owner for making our visit to Bali one of the best trips that we've had.
The location is in the center of Seminyak, however we didn't hear any noise from the busy shopping and restaurant street.
Everything is beautifully maintained, and the staff especially, are the most kind people that we've met.
I really recommend anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Bali to come and experience Sahana Villas.
We have been enjoying holidays in Bali since 2010. This was definitely one of the best stays we ever had. We were three adults and two kids and the villa was just perfect.
The Sahana Villas experience started upon airport pick-up. A comfortable and extra-spacious van (with nice cold refreshing towels and cool water bottles) was waiting for us and avoided all the taxi hustle. All this for a very fair price.
Upon arrival to the villa itself, we had a very warm welcome. Both the staff and our incredible host, Georg, made us fell at home.
The Villa has a great location, near one of our favourite streets, Jl. Kayu Aya. Good restaurants, nice shops, supermarket, pharmacy and much more, one step away. The best part is that the villa, despite being at one-minute walk from all this, is indeed quiet. The beach is also at walkable distance, taking us no longer than 20 minutes with the kids.
Inside, the lawn with the palm trees and the pool is an invaluable asset. The generosity of this exterior space makes all the difference.
The three autonomous rooms are also very spacious and comfortable. Each one of them has an outdoor restroom, that is one of those tropical pleasures that we love about Bali. The Joglo room in particular, entirely built of wood, is a great display of traditional architecture and adds that extra comfort that only wood can provide.
The common areas are opened to the exterior, communicating between each other, and while being together the villa has enough size to allow independent use.
We loved the big wooden table, where we had the most delicious meals prepared by the amazing and friendly staff. They would go out to get the groceries and would prepare the meals according to our request.
Overall, it is spacious and well balanced, well located but quiet, clean and with friendly and helpful staff.
We absolutely loved it and look forward to the next time.
We stayed two nights at Sahana Villas and totally loved it - we wished to stay some more days, but had a strict travel plan :) The stuff is awesome and and it felt like home. They made every wish come true and prepared a wonderful fresh breakfast every morning.
The villa itself is outstanding beautiful, the pool is great and we really loved the outdoor bathroom.
Located close to Seminyak centre, Sahana Villas is the perfect place to get in some stylish restaurant or bar and it is only 10 min by taxi to get to the beach.
Totally loved it and hope to come back sometime.
The villa is located in the heart of seminyak. The decor and facilities are amazing. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Loved the experience of staying at Sahana Villas. Would love to come back.
I like to spend as much time as I can in Bali and each time I'm there, I love to try out a new experience. We recently spent a few nights at the gorgeous Sahana Villas in Seminyak and we absolutely loved it!
The Sahana Villas are located in the heart of Seminyak, at walking distance from the many of the best shops and restaurants on Oberoi street. The amazing thing is that despite all the nearby hustle and bustle, the villas are very quiet and secluded.
The villas have 3 bedrooms and each bedroom has its own outdoor bathroom, which provides the tropical, exotic feeling that you want when you are staying at a villa on Bali. Adding to the tropical vibe are the beautiful joglo, the wooden house in typical Indonesian style that houses one of the three bedrooms and the open living room that I love so much. The villas are all very spacious, have a lush green garden and can easily accommodate a family of six.
Our stay at Sahana Villas came with a tasty complimentary breakfast, prepared to our wishes by the very friendly staff. Starting the day with this wonderful meal and the Balinese coffee from their own plantation in the mountain areas of Bedugul, is just magical. I loved sipping a fresh coffee while lying stretched out on one of the sun loungers by the picture perfect pool!
We flew our drone just for fun and to take some aerial pictures that highlight just how green and lush Sahana Villas are. Flying over Seminyak also clearly showed how much larger the villas at Sahana are than at other properties in the neighborhood.
In the end, from any travel experience, you remember the people. Our butler was Mia, who was so sweet and welcoming we felt like she was our Balinese mom while we were staying. In busy Seminyak, Sahana Villas are a wonderful retreat where you can kick back, relax and smell the franginpanis!
My partner and I had an amazing stay at Sahana and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Bali. The villas are conveniently located in the centre of Seminyak but set back so as to avoid any noise from the main road. You can easily walk to the best dining and shopping spots in Seminyak but there is also parking space outside the villas should you wish to drive. The staff were fantastic from the moment we arrived and we felt welcome immediately. The villa and outside area was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was fantastic and we had an amazing stay. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and will definitely be back ourselves!
My husband and our 3 children (16,19 & 21) stayed here for 3 weeks and it was absolute luxury from the moment we stepped into the villas to leaving, which we were all so sad to do. The Staff at Sahana do everything to make your stay just perfect, from making sure the place is tidy to giving you exactly what you like in the mornings for breakfast and the dinners (if you want them to) are delicious! We also felt we still had our privacy though - they know exactly how to ensure you have everything you need and still feel like it's only you at the Villa. Our kids being older, loved that they could walk straight out to so much Bali life and the oldest who was already used to driving a scooter, loved going surfing most days and having so much freedom. I could also see that it would also be great for younger kids too and considering one is so close to so much life, you are still hidden far back enough, not to be kept up from any noise. Wyan who drove us to quite a few different places was brilliant too - I felt very safe and loved driving with him as he knew all the little short cuts. Asty, Ida and so many more people here at Sahana, can also help you out with anything you want to do or know. We visited the temples, did water rafting, surfing, wakeboarding, the monkey forest, amazing sunsets and so much more and Sahana helped with everything. We had 3 weeks of bliss and not forgetting the massages - which were incredible - even our son who would never have one at home, loved the privacy of having it at the villa - we had quite a few:-) Our daughter also turned 16 years old here and all the staff came and sang for her and made a cake - she had such a great surprise with this and it made it really special. I can't praise them all enough - the kids said it was the best holiday they had had and they have been very fortunate to have some good ones. I agree it was so special and truly wonderful, as having a villa rather than a hotel, made it so much more relaxing and like a home. We will be coming back!
