Villa Damai Manis met all our needs - spacious, luscious garden, comfortable open plan couches, big day beds to read and relax or have a massage, four comfy pool chairs, loads of sunlight all day around the pool and beautifully finished comfortable rooms. The fact that each room had a huge outdoor shower / bathroom was a plus as well. I loved that the owners have clearly put their own unique little touches on the villa - pillows, ornaments, rugs and pictures throughout.
The location was perfect for us, a short walk to Oberoi shopping and dining strip, conveniently located near Seminyak Square, Grocer & Grind and Bodyworks and a short walk or easy cab ride to Seminyak beach to catch the sunset with a cocktail in hand. I loved that it was close to all the luxuries and conveniences of Seminyak but just away from the main strip enough for it to be really quiet and peaceful. Short trip in a cab to the fancy restaurants or a 5 minute stroll down the road to two of our favourite Bali eats - Cafe Bali and Trattoria (and Trattoria will home deliver in 20 minutes if you're feeling like staying in!).
The staff (Putu and Wayan) were lovely and cooked us a nice breakfast everyday and were happy to help with any requests we had. Gede drove us to the airport and gave us a lovely farewell to bali.
Highly recommend Damai if you love all the things about Bali and staying in Seminyak that I do.

The villa is huge with three big queen bedrooms all with personal en-suites and full wardrobes, tv and aircon. The pool is fantastic and there is lots of comfy couches and day beds throughout the villa. The staff were great and cooked us some beautiful breakfasts. Will definitely come back.
We booked through adamjyota.com. Dealing with Enny via email was super easy. Our first choice villa was not available, and we were recommended Villa Damai Manis instead. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Erika and Wayan, who provided housekeeping services.
There was ample space for our family of 2 adults and 3 children. The pool was larger than average and very well-maintained. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you could possibly need to prepare your meals, a large refrigerator and a water dispenser with hot and cold water at your convenience. We purchased groceries at the Cocomart nearby, which Erika and Wayan used to prepare our breakfast every morning. A menu is provided for lunch or dinner which can be prepared at very reasonable prices.
There is also a spa menu for in-villa services, at reasonable prices. We tried the Balinese massage, which we had at the gazebo. Nice but we did get a few mosquito bites. We also tried other spas within walking distance of the villa, which were better.
The rooms are large, with high ceilings and four-poster beds. The outdoor bathrooms were clean and equipped with shower but no bathtub. The open air living area had a sitting area with a plush L-shaped sofa and a dining area with a large table and 8 chairs. Our children loved the well-stocked toy chest which kept them occupied for hours. Erika and Wayan also provided babysitting services at very low rates, which meant the adults were able to enjoy some of the nightlife in Seminyak. They were helpful and friendly, the children just loved them!
The villa's location is a little bit further in from the main road (Jalan Oberoi / Jalan Kayu Ara) than I would've liked. It's about 500m from Seminyak Square, but we had a driver, so distance wasn't an issue.
Do take note that the pool is very deep (over 5"). If you have small children who can't swim, a pool fence can be erected for a small fee.
Amazing stay in Villa Damai, smacked right in the middle of Seminyak, 2-3 mins walk to your nearest restaurants and nice bistros.
Villa had a very open concept, lots of space, huge swimming pool with 3 bedrooms.
I was surprised that we had caretakers to prepare breakfast to dinner for us as per our request! They will go do marketing and come back with awesome foody to fill our stomach! The outdoor bathroom can't get any better. Check out the photos I've posted! It's a must stay if you are looking for villa in Bali! Has security Guard 24/7 outside our villa too!
Choosing to stay in villa damai was the best decision as it made us look forward to every day and enjoy every minute. It felt like home and really created a conducive environment for us.
Amazing location, great staff and beautiful rooms made it difficult for us to leave the place. Highly recommended!!
