“Location, location, location”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

In a great location, tucked just down the side-street by Kilo Bali, and just a 100m from the primary collection of boutiques, bars, restaurants and coffee shops in Seminyak.

A well thought out, well laid out villa with 3 good sized, en suite, double bedrooms, well separated from each-other so noise is not shared. The staff were there when we arrived, polite, friendly, helpful, and arranged scooters for us on the spot.

A couple of details could improve the place, there are no power sockets in the upper bedroom, possibly one hidden behind some furniture, but nothing by the bed to charge phones and laptops, also a couple of chairs would be nice, since the room is a great size. I'd also put a towel hook by the shower, and some high-ball glasses in the kitchen, but really, this is a great place to hang out.

As the area is well known for the odd mosquito in season, it was great to find ample supplies of repellents and after bite in the lounge and the bedrooms, as well as the nets.

Thank you for the feedback and very pleased to hear that everyone had an enjoyable stay.
The matter of electric socket in the bedroom is very much appreciated and we are going to arrange this right away, together with a shower hook.
Little things make all the difference, and wherever possible we really do take note of positive suggestions.

“Perfect villa at a perfect location!”
Reviewed March 7, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I was traveling with my husband, a 14-year old and 2 x above 60-years olds - so had to pick something that would suit everyone's need. Here are the positives & negatives about the villa:
Positives
1) The villa is tucked away from all the noisy street of Seminyak. So a quiet location was ideal after a long day where you want to relax and sleep peacefully.
2) Privacy for all parties because everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom.
3) Great outdoor living space with pool
4) 5-10 minutes walk from the main street of Seminyak, 2 minutes walk from the best coffee in the island and massage places.
5) Free airport transportations AND great services by the 2 ladies staff (Tri and her friend).
6) Mosquito nets are provided in each bedroom which is great!
7) WiFi was great for the teenager...

Negatives
1) Mosquitoes are busy at work due to the outdoor living space HOWEVER, the mosquitoes repellents are provided. All you have to do is light them up 24/7 and you're fine!Same with bedroom.
2) The street leading to the villa is very dark at night - be extra careful when walking. But we walked the whole time we were there and ever had any problems.
3) Due to the location, taxi drivers are often not familiar with the villa's name. So let them know that you live near Uma Sapna villa and they will know where it is.
4) Pool definitely needs some maintenance.
5) We only received the drinking water on the last day of our stay but we bought some from the shop anyway. Would've saved us a few dollars if the drinking water were sent on the first day.

Thank you for your guest review, very nice to hear that everyone had an enjoyable stay.
We welcome all feedback both positive and negative, as we strive to improve our service.
The staff at this villa are relatively new, and we will be holding some further staff training following the issues brought to our attention.

The villa is supposed to be smoke fumigated every few weeks to keep the mosquitos to a minimum, this was not done, for which we apologise, and this is now being done immediately.
There should be outside lighting at the villa, the bulbs are broken and are being changed immediately.
There should be an unlimited supply of fresh drinking water from the dispenser, and this is a bad oversight from our staff that will not happen again.

“A very convenient location”
Reviewed January 30, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We were pleased with the central location of the villa. In fact we didn't ride in a taksi once during the five days yet we ventured to Seminyak beach, Square/Village, Laksmana/Oberoi strip and Bintang on Jl Basangkasa. For me it means that Jl Drupadi and its lanes are smack bang in the middle. That's an absolute winning feature. A couple of matters though of which to be mindful:
- animals: there was a cat that nightly entered the villa via the open fretwork at the bottom of the Gang gate so put the kitchen garbage bin in a secure room at night! Of course its not a pet and I saw it on the kitchen bench late at night. It also liked the grass around the pool as a latrine. Mozzies - the living area is open so spray yourselves well (or dont stand or sit still);
- the gate to Gang: from ground level when you swim, you will have an eye level view of the road outside which probably hosts 1000 sepeda motors a day. In early 2016, there was building works going on by day across the road so the noise was audible, especially on cement mixing days. My suggestion is some rattan screening on the fence could prevent any animal entering and the guest's viewshed exiting.
Overall, we rate this property well, having found the airconditioned bedrooms restful, private and quiet (until 8AM). I think is is value for money. Troy from Perth

“Great location”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The positives about villa Simona are its location, very close to main cafe and shopping centre in Seminyak, the pool which was a great size for 5 adults, and Ervi who was a fantastic house assistant, she couldn't do enough for us. We loved her and her helper.
On the negative side, we thought the villa needed a really good clean and lots of maintenance. Many things didn't work - the blinds upstairs were broken, air con was not very effective in the upstairs bedroom, the hand basins leaked underneath and the power went out every night! Certainly take your mozzie spray as they are rife - the living area could do with a couple of ceiling fans to keep the air circulating.
We did have a lovely family time being together in a villa. This one just needs some maintenance to be perfect.

Thank you for the feedback for villa Simona.
We have a villa manager who is supposed to ensure that the villa is fully maintained, and clearly the villa manager has fallen short of her duties.
All matters referred to will be dealt with immediately.
With regards to the electric supply, the power cuts are from the electric supply Company, and affect all properties in the area, a real nuisance, but in no way connected to villa Simona and completely beyond our control.
It is always nice to hear that our guests had an enjoyable stay, and all maintenance issues will be attended to.

“Everthing we hoped for”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have stayed many times in Bali but first time at Villa Simona. We were travelling with 2 16 year old boys, parking for 2 weeks, so our priority was a villa that provided great space to come together as a family but that the boys had there own seperate living area. Villa Simona was spot on in this respect. The pool is larger than the average villa pool - great for games of pool cricket! The boys were over the moon with their areas. One was upstairs and had the hole floor to himself with huge bedroom, beautifully furnished in bali style and really large ensuite. Boy 2 had the bungalow at back of the property, equally as spacious and styled simply and authentically. The wonderful staff were very brave cleaning their rooms every day, and quickly got the hang of kicking them out of bed at 11am to clean their rooms! Breakfast was cooked every day and the consensus was the Nasi Goreng combinations, so that was the staple for 2 weeks with a big fruit platter and juices. The kitchen was well stocked and all conveniences provided. A small bonus was the unlimited filtered water from the water fountain in the kitchen. A great touch as previous stays at other Villas we had to go to the Supermarket every day to stock up on water. The gardener pops in every 2nd day and cleans the pool and gardens so the Villa always looked sparkling! Wi Fi was 100% reliable and very quick. Another bonus with 2 teens!
The main bedroom and huge bathroom looks out on the pool and is super relaxing coupled with the comfy bed.
10 min walk to beach and even shorter to the best rests and cafes in Seminyak. Very quiet street which was a suprise given its great location.
We will definately be back as Villa Simona was great value for money and super friendly staff made it a great all round stay.

“Everything we were looking for.”
Reviewed April 5, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What we saw in the photos is what we got! . Excellent spacious bedrooms, comfy lounge area and plenty of bathrooms to suit a large group of 7 adults.. Well cared for by the day staff Ervi and Emmi and the pool was regularly cleaned and yard maintained throughout our stay. Excellent proximity to the shops and restaurents which was great.
Only negatives were that the upstairs bathroom shower curtain needed to go - it was old and broken . We did not need it or use it during our stay. Also I had asked for 3 single beds in one room for my adult sons but a single was added to a room with a double bed which meant two had to share - not ideal.but they coped.

Many thanks for the feedback, we always strive to improve our service, and the old shower curtain will be replaced immediately.
We keep a large stick of extra single beds, and it would appear that this has been lost in translation with the villa staff, who should have provided extra single beds for all the children, we will make this clear for future reference as the extra single beds are a frequent request.

We are pleased that you all enjoyed your stay and hope to see you all again on the next trip to Bali.

“A spacious Oasis in the heart of Seminyak”
Reviewed March 6, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

After being greeted by our english speaking driver at the airport, we were escorted to our air-conditioned vehicle and arrived at Vila Simona only a short time later. Having stayed in many villas in and around Seminyak, there is always the anticipation as to whether the the vila lives up to expectations. As we opened the gates, we breathed a sigh of relief to see that the candid shots taken were a direct representation of what we had hoped for. Upon arrival we were greeted by our maid, Ervi and her colleague. She was most helpful throughout our trip with her genuine warmth, jovial attitude and willingness to assist wherever she could. She provided us with fresh towels whenever we needed them and kept the place immaculate. After running through all the features of the property, she left us to begin what was an amazing stay at Villa Simona. The first thing we noticed upon entry was the size of the well maintained pool, and the general cleanliness of the property throughout. Water pressure in the showers was excellent, beds were of good quality, and we felt safe and at home. The accommodation was larger than we had expected, and with three guys, there was plenty of space for misadventures. Equally it would certainly accommodate a decent sized family, with its huge open plan area, where you could comfortably watch the kids swim.

Jarith was our villa manager and was only a moment away if we needed help with anything. He speaks perfect English and he went above and beyond to ensure our stay was nothing short of spectacular. He really is a gem, and made our holiday seamless. Now let me tell you about location, as I've stayed in other villas where they boast 2 mins walk to Oberoi etc.. This is the real deal, in fact, everything represented is what it says it is. So believe the hype, you will not go wrong with this villa, whether it be a peaceful family stay or a large group of friends. It's an easy walk to eat street, an abundance of massage places and some of the finest restaurants Bali has to offer. If you're looking for value, location, size and quality of accommodation, then Vila Simona will hit the spot.

On a side note, we booked this accommodation through Nick Hyam who is a well reputed property manager in Bali. After having several dealing with Nick now, I can't recommend him highly enough for his honesty, candour, and professionalism. Next time I come to Bali, I will be calling Nick to assist me, as I know he always gets the job done!
