Our friend Robbin booked this villa for our two parties (total of 5 of us). We arrived from the airport to this beautiful villa and were immediately greeted by the most hospitable staff. The location is great, close enough to the beach (15 min walk or 5 min taxi) and shops (5 min walk), yet nestled away in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are spacious, clean and bathrooms and showers are fantastic. We spent most of our time in the outdoor patio and the kitchen as it is well laid out for communing.
The staff is superb...ever attentive and so courteous. Sugi made sure to help with anything we needed from directions to dinner and taxi reservations, as well as booking our very affordable local Balinese massage. Jero made our breakfasts that were superb not only in taste and presentation, but with local and western healthy options. I recommend the banana pancakes for sure, they were the best pancakes I've ever had. If you get a chance, order the BBQ that they make at the villa and serve you hot of the grill. It was one of our best meals in Bali.
Wifi was strong enough to help us get caught up on a little work and the World Cup.
I can not say enough about how special we felt as a result of the staff at Villa Origami. Jero, Ketut, Sugi, Ferdi were the best!
Bali is a great destination, Villa Origami and their staff made our trip outstanding.
Villa Origami has a great location - at first, I was afraid we wouldn't be near the hustle and bustle (ie Seminyak Square area) but honestly, the area around the villa is much better. There's lots of great places to eat on Seminyak Street (the main street that the villa is off of) - would recommend Grain and Ryoshi in particular! It's not as busy as the more commercial end. As others have mentioned, it's the perfect balance of being tucked away yet very near to shops and restaurants (and of course, the huge Bintang Supermarket).
The villa was cleaned everyday and, if you wanted, you could have staff on site to be on hand to cater for your every need. Since this was a second honeymoon, we asked for privacy and this was respected. The villa staff were very understanding! Mr Putu (Villa Manager) was excellent! Nothing was too much trouble and he was always available via What's App - he even arranged a driver to take us to Tanah Lot temple for the afternoon for a bargain price! Jero (who cleaned for us) was very friendly too, and arranged massages for us. We liked knowing there was security on site during the night (although we felt very safe there and security probably wasn't required).
The villa itself is spacious and clean and has a fantastic pool and garden (which is a sun trap all day for those who like to sunbathe!). We felt very lucky to have it all to ourselves. We liked that towels, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and even toothpaste was provided - we didn't need to buy a thing! There's also a water cooler meaning you have fresh filtered water on tap. The air con and fans are excellent (and welcomed in the intense heat!).
My only small, negative comment concerned the noises at night (which cannot be helped). Unfortunately, the beautiful thatched roof isn't soundproof so a neighbouring cockrel kept us awake! We soon got used to it though but ear plugs helped immensely!
We could not have been more impressed with Villa Origami. From the rooms, maid service, food and location; it was fantastic.
We would definitely stay there again and would recommend Villa Origami to our friends and family.
We stayed for 7 nights , breakfast every day was delicious thanks Jero. The pool area is awesome to drink by and frolick around. Air con worked very well beds super comfy and the service was 24/7. We had a wedding and Jero ironed the boys shirts and our bridal tops. A short walk from nice restaurants and beach front , will definitely be staying at Oragami villa again :)
Me and my husband along with four friends stayed in this gorgeous villa.
We loved our stay here. It's tucked away from the crazyness of Seminyak but walking distances to everything.
It is so quiet and relaxing. Your cannot hear any noise from the outside streets at all.
You can stay inside the lovely compound and not even have to leave the front door. The staff can provide everything you need, they can even cook for you. Whatever you want.
The pool is lovely and the chill out area next to it is where we spent most of our time.
The villa is spacious and well equipped. You would not want for anything if you stayed here.
The staff are so friendly and polite and willing to do anything for you.
I used to have a skepticism about staying in Seminyak area, but Villa Origami has changed my opinion. Villa Origami has made our stay experience really well worth. You get privacy and calmness while still being inside the commercial area of Seminyak.
Our fave rooms are the two that face the swimming pool. Each is completed with a semi outdoor bathroom. Spending quality time with good friends by the pool is the moment I always remember.
Four of us stayed at Villa Origami for 9 days and have good things to say. We opted for a Villa to experience a more personal and leisurely stay rather than picking a resort/hotel and were not disappointed.
Villa offers housekeeping service and meals option, however we stuck to just continental breakfast, given the varied food/ambiance available around Seminyak.
Big shout out to Jheroo & Kutu who are available in turns during the day - who in addition to maintaining the facility assist on calling local taxis to the door - do give them 10-15 minute heads up, as Villa while just off the main street, some taxi drivers need to be conversant in coming through, though both Jheroo & Kutu do guide the drivers to the Villa.
Double Six beach as well as Seminyak Eat Street/Shopping 15-20 min walk in case one does not need to wish to hop into a local taxi, and Bali also offers ability to rent two wheeler at every corner, which too is a far more efficient way to move around.
Master bedroom is spacious while bedrooms next to the pool comfortable. Pool good to laze around too.
Would recommend if you wish to try a villa experience.
