“NOT HAPPY!”
Reviewed March 6, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We stayed at Staman Villa recently and I will have to say they are in poor condition and need TLC - definitely do not resemble the photos on various websites.
I do not normally complain however on this occasion I feel Staman Villas are advertising a properties that are not clean, need maintenance and update on linen and towels.

We did raise our concerns with the booking agent which forwarded our concerns to the balinese staff locally whom attended to our concerns and moved us to another villa however it to had similar issues.
like other reviews we were not greeted by the manager - the manger was not seen the whole week we were there. The pools were dirty the water is murky and no active filtration. I did not want to swim in the pool it was that stagnate. .
Gardens have not been attended to overgrowing
There is no hot water in the shower
Toilet did not flush properly
Towels are old, worn out and stained
Overall cleanliness of the property is not to standard
Kitchens not clean
Issues with hot water
Air con in bedroom not working properly

These villas no longer look like the images online - We paid a lot of money for the villa and having been to Bali on numerous occasions we know there is much better accomodation in Seminyak for the price we have paid.
Management need to spend some money on these villas and bring them to standard - there is much better value for money out there.

On a positive note - The Balinese staff locally were very helpful and went out of their way to assist with our concerns. :)

Thank you for your review and comments. I believe many valid comments are directed at Villa Staman Asri, our low cost villa listed at about 40% below other properties in our immediate area. This villa fucuses more on comfort than luxury and is favourite for larger families. Decor and fittings allow children to run around without parents worrying they may break some expensive art work so they can relax and enjoy. Towels and linens here and will be renewed soon.
Once your concerns raised we moved you to Villa Staman and staff informed me your group where very happy there and agent did not receive any comments to suggest otherwise. After your departure we closed Staman Asri to fix issues raised and now functioning to expected standard. The pool needs further work to ensure filtration correct as pool company try to find root cause to problems. In next door Villa Staman all is to a good standard and all facilities working correctly with clean good quality towels and linens. The pool here is always crystal clear.
Gardens in both villas have been brought to standard.
Comments regarding photos, the photos used on our official TripAdvisor page where taken on contract by TripAdvisor. The only change is walls have a different more lively colour, all fixtures and facilities remain the same. The Web page your comments based on is not one we have put together and therefore I agree many photos do not show villa listed. I shall contact TripAdvisor regard this as it shows many photos from another villa and outdated ones of Villa listed with photos certainly not approved and misleading. I will also checking all websites listing our villas to ensure all photos and descriptions are correct and not missleading so guests can chose the villa they want and not disappointed on arriving.
Operating 4 distinctly different villas aimed at different guests needs and budget all located perfectly in quite residential area within easy walk to beach, shops, restaurants and all Oberoi area offers requires more management than envisaged. I seem to be envolved with other projects so having less time to oversee the villas. We have not had a manager for 3+ years and I believe the way forward is to employ a manager as soon as we can find a suitable candidate so they can maintain the villas to the high standard guests expect.
Finally thank you for your kind comments regarding staff

“Relaxed Bliss off the beaten track yet close to action”
Reviewed October 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Vila Staman Asri is located in a quiet area just off the Oberio compound. Consistent communication with Simon the owner, was great, and was very responsive and he delivered as expected on transfers and printouts of boarding passes etc. There are other vilas nearby etc Elysian, Yoga, Ahmi etc, which look quite exclusive with expected price tags, however Staman Asri is bang on buck for affordable R&R.
Pros
• Breakfast was good, and we were provided with eggs any way, toast and spreads, with fruit, coffee and tea. Asked for some variety and got pancakes one day. Did enquire for some Balinese breakfast, but there were some issues with the cook, so that didn’t work out as planned, though I do think it possible for changes.
• Filtered water all day, with towels, shower amenities etc
• Was cleaned every day, and the place was quite clean, though the fittings and furnishings were adequate. The beds were comfortable, and sleep was restful with AC and mosquito nets
• There was a spa in front of the place, with great massage, and the ladies came twice for in house massage, from IDR100k per hour + IDR20k for in house service.
Some Cons
• Pool was not cleaned adequately with leaves etc on it. The pump had to be switched on, so filtering was not continuous. The staff seemed unawares on this, and we had to prompt them for this.
• Only public beach access is via Ku Deta, but would seem adequate for beach lovers, as this is a good 10min walk away.
• However, access to and fro the main road requires an 8 min walk via narrow gengs/walkways. Turn left out of the property brings you to Oberoi, Ku Deta and access to Seminyak Market; Seminyak Square and Petinnget (8-10mins), while if you turn right, it’s a long walk (more than 10mins) to Jln Camplung Tanduk – Bali Joe etc. This is expected as its closer to the beach, but rather far off from the main parts of Seminyak. So it depends on what is required. Though if its seafront, best to stay at the hotels as they seem to hug every available beach. But we definitely got our 10k steps every day. Taxis from Seminyak Square back to the vila was IDR20k or less, so that’s a good option after a weary day trawling the shops in Seminyak etc. Kuta is IDR40-50k away by taxi.
• The space is most comfortable for 6 pax, with proper beds, while the 3rd bedroom on the 1st floor didn’t have a ensuite like the other 2 rooms, and required a trudge up and down some steep steps to access the shower toilet on the ground floor. This room had a queen and 2 mattresses, on an elevated space. As a suggestion, the larger rooms should have more beds (single beds rather than mattresses), to accommodate more people, while the upstairs room should just remain with 2 pax only.
Was quite comfortable overall, with amenities as expected for a relaxing break. However, in future, may either stay here or somewhere else depending on needs and group size.

Thank you very much for your detailed, informative review plus suggestions for improvement. We have recently changed some staff where their performance was lacking which has improved service, breakfast and attention to detail. Your suggestion of additional beds on ground floor perhaps utilising the living room and only having the queen bed on upper floor is good and will be suggested to large groups.
The location is great with easy beach access and not to far to walk to as are the restaurants and shops of Oberoi Street yet the villa is set in such a quiet area.
We aim to have an affordable villa, not high in luxury but certainly comfortable and we are planning to improve facilities for 2017 including upgrading kitchen and bathrooms.
Thanks for choosing Staman Villas

“Relaxed hideaway in Seminyak”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

After a long day of travelling, we arrived quite late to a warm welcome from Simon at Villa Staman Asri. The following morning we met Imade and Wyan who looked after us for the following 6 days - nothing was too much trouble and we felt very relaxed in the time we spent "at home". The pool is a great size and perfect place to hangout after the hustle and bustle of town & we loved being within walking distance of the beach & a host of great shops, restaurants and bars. Simon was a mine of great local info & really made us feel welcome - he was especially helpful when 2 of our group became ill the night we arrived (nothing to do with the viilla)!
The villa is a little dated, but feels easy to be in and very relaxed - the pool and large cool living room are fantastic and there was plenty of room for us to spread out when we needed a respite from the heat or just a little chill out time. Great for groups or families hosted by a lovely owner and team.

Thank for such a nice review highlighting our hospitality and policy to do all we can so your time is relaxing, enjoyable without stress. Our great staff enjoy seeing guests relaxed and happy when they can do all they can including chores, grocery shopping etc allowing guests more pool time. Location is indeed great
with little need for taxis.
After you left we did some deep cleaning and some painting to take away some of the dated feel and will be doing some work to make the villa more comfortable, brighter and hopefully away from the dated tag!
Do hope to see you again, it was a pleasure having the "lovely ladies" from NZ.. Simon, owner

We stayed at the Staman Asri villa for 8 days and were welcomed on arrival by the owner Simon and some of his staff. Great first impression, the pool was awesome and the villa was very clean and well presented. The kitchen is a little outdated, but let's be fair, there is no need to cook. The supplied breakfasts were yummy (fruit, eggs, bacon etc). The beach is just a few minutes walk, great pizzas and cocktails at Kudeta and totally recommend lunch at La Lucciola. Close to many great restaurants and shops. Staff will shop for beers and groceries and were fantastic. We didn't want to leave and would definitely recommend to others.

“Fantastic Location”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Fantastic location close to Seminyak, beach & Double 6.
Simon & staff were amazing and so helpful especially the beautiful breakfasts cooked daily. Nothing was too hard for the staff who made the stay easy and enjoyable.
We loved the pool & alfresco dining area and spent many hours there relaxing & swimming.
I believe the vila is getting a makeover which will give it a great facelift.
Highly recommend especially to families or groups.

Many thanks for the review, it was a delight to meet you all and assist during your travels. Our staff try to go the extra mile particularly to reduce or eliminate boring daily chores done at home!
As you mentioned, we already do some upgrades and plan makeover hopefully later in the year when we have a gap between bookings. A great international famous artist, recently staying has given some interesting ideas

Do hope to see you, your family, colleagues and friends coming to stay at one of our individual and different and villas soon

“Very relaxing and accommodating to our family.”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We travelled with our two daughters, 15 and 11 year old. It was wonderful to be met at the airport by a driver to took us to our villa which was wonderful. Simon met us at villa and showed us around with some useful tips about our stay. The villa is a 4 minute walk to the beach, but you need to know that you can access it by going through the driveway/pathway between 'The Oberoi' and 'Ku te Ta' - seeing the security guards outside the Oberoi makes you think that it is all secured for guests, but that is public access in between the two. They had snacks and beers in the fridge on our arrival. We had two cooks assigned to our villa for breakfasts and who were happy to do chores like taking our laundry to be Laundromat, and change our money for us as well. Our villa was always cleaned beautifully on our return from our day trips. A fantastic holiday thanks to Simon and Made.

Thanks for your great review showing the villa and staff at their best. I must add your remarks on getting to the beach via KuDeTa driveway into the villa info book for future guests.
I am so happy you found the villa clean and tidy. Staff are always pleased to help in anyway they can so you can enjoy yourselves without normal home chores, just relax by the pool, enjoy local amenities most within easy walk and unwind.
Hope to see you again at one of our villas
Thanks again, Simon

“Horrible”
Reviewed June 29, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Booked this place and paid quite a bit of money for it, photos seemed good online and the villa appeared the same on arrival, but on closer inspection everything was dirty including the bed sheets, sun lounges and mosquito nets, and many things were broken or damaged including the wall in one of our rooms, the sliding doors to the rooms, the front door of the villa.

The air conditioning was quite poor and in room that the manager told us is the often the best room for air conditioning, it was unbearable to stay in there as the air conditioning was so bad. Being lied directly to your face by the manager did not help and no one was happy with it, as he stated 'someone had complained that this room was too cold for them'. Considering this was the room facing the sun, it's very hard to believe.

There were rats in the kitchen on the first night and this was a complete turn off, we had paid the deposit which paid for the first night and after that we left. We had planned to stay for two more nights, but we couldn't stay in this place especially for the money we were being charged.

I would not recommend staying here, unless the place is severely upgraded.

As can be seen from our many reviews our previous travelers have found the villa to their complete satisfaction and well priced for its space, great staff, tranquility and easy walking distance to the main Seminyak/Oberoi facilities including the beach

In regard to the bed linen etc, we have inspected their condition and replaced any below standard and we apologize this was not noted before your arrival. We could not find damaged walls you referred to. As explained to you the air conditioning is normally excellent and the technician found the freon gas level low as I indicated to you this may be the issue and was back to full operation the following day as was suggested to you
We found no evidence of rats however the regular squirrel was seen together with the usual Geckoes including the larger pair who are frequently seen around the villa. As always, when any issues are raised we deal with them as quickly as possible.

Again apologies the villa was not up to its normal great standard on this occasion, staff have been reminded to check laundry on its return (we have changed laundry company) and all equipment is thoroughly checked to be ready for arriving guests. The villa is very busy and popular and we are considering more staff to keep the villa to standard during our busy times. After high season we schedule its twice yearly maintenance and upkeep program.

Kind regards
