Amasya Villas
Ranked #147 of 434 Specialty Lodging in Seminyak
Reviewed August 20, 2013

My husband and I stayed in this villa in April 2013 and we enjoyed with this place. Great location, close to good restaurants and very close to conceptual beach club Ku-De-Ta (about 6 min by walking).
The large area of ​​private villa allowed us to relax from the hustle and bustle. Villa has big pool, it was clean all the time. There always quiet, were heard only the sounds of nature.
It was the fourth time of our visit to Bali and we lived in different districts of this island and I have to say that the price-performance ratio of this villa is perfect. If you want high-tech style and you ready to spend money on accommodation is three times more - welcome to c151 villas, for example. But in this place you will feel the true spirit of Bali.
About staff and management Amasya villas. They were very helpful and freindly. After resting in Seminyak we went to Ubud and management gave us a free shuttle service to Ubud.
Wi-fi was available only in a restaurant near the large pool and it was one downside villa.

It seems like this place is preparing to be redeveloped or something that means that it only needs to make do.
It is one of the worst managed places we have stayed in over many years of travel. The staff try their best to make do with whatever minimal skills and training they have.
We stayed in Villa 12 which was probably very nice when new however it is in desperate need of a refresh. Taps are loose, the pool constantly runs short of water, the shower fills up with water which floods the whole bathroom, we have bites on our skin which we suspect are from mites in the room, shelves were dusty etc etc.
Although the location is not too noisy away from the street where our villa was, any noise that is around from the neighbouring bar nearby and even from staff or guests walking past the villa, sound like their in your room.
The limited selection breakfast made in the room was so bad that we opted to pay for a decent breakfast every following morning at a cafe locally where we could also get decent coffee instead of the instant only served at Amasya. They didn't even have Bali style coffee available.
Reception staff we tough to deal with. One in particular could barely answer simple queries or requests.
In saying all of the above if you want to stay in the heart of the restaurants and shops at a relatively competitive price, it's not somewhere we would recommend but an option for people who want a villa style place right at the bottom of the standards level.
Our plan was to spend quite a bit of time in our room relaxing and keeping up to date with our work commitments. This also wasn't possible due to the poor wifi connection.
We regretted not paying a couple of hundred dollars extra to cover a 5 night stay somewhere that we stayed in Seminyak previously which was first class.

We stayed in a one bedroom villa. Everything was clean and service and staff were all great. There is a little wear and tear, but nothing major, and given that it is more affordable than a lot of private pool villas it gives value for money. Breakfast was provided and cooked at the villa daily. It's pretty magical waking up and swimming in your own pool while your breakfast is being cooked for you. The pool was a good size too. As with a couple of the other reviewers we had no problem with privacy or peeping toms - the walls are pretty high. The villas drive is off a main street which has many cafe/restaurants and shops and is a short walk from a beach. We could not hear the people next door, nor any noise from the street. We will definitely be back here - cant wait.

I stayed here back in 2010 and was surprised to see the negative reviews. Maybe standards have slipped since then. During our stay we found the villa’s well finished and clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The beautiful communal pool was always lovely and quiet.

I loved the private pools in the villa’s and I was more than happy with the outside bathroom arrangement, especially the free standing bathtub! I wasn’t a big fan of someone coming into your villa to cook you breakfast, so often skipped this. Maybe they should offer an alternative to a cooked breakfast?

The location was perfect for nightlife and shopping and the beach was only a short walk away. I would have considered going back, but after reading other reviews I’m not so sure.

I spent 12 nights at the Amasya, and it is nicely located, only 10 minutes walk to the beach and much of the nightlife and shopping also in walking distance. The villas are beautiful and cosy, offering both style and privacy. It is magic to hang out in the pool or take the breakfast outside. Also the free-standing bathtub is memorable.

If I would have paid USD 180 instead of USD 500/night, I could recommend Amasya unconditionally. Given that it was the later amount, I would have expected a better service:
- 3 out of 12 nights there was no breakfast in the room
- the small toilet could often not "swallow" (you get the point). Despite reminders, it took several days to fix, and the problem reoccured.
- Satellite TV, but no flat screen.
- Internet was only available in the micro-lobby (basically sitting next to the receptionist) and in the public bar area, which is actually a nice place to hang out and have a swim in the bigger pool. Unfortunately, internet in the bar area was only working during three out of 12 days, which I find unacceptable for the price.

If you walk on the road along the beach (on the town side of the street, there are some villas that go for around 180-300 USD, where the above-mentioned problems were not reported by other travelers)

Room Tip: Try to get Villa 18 if you want to have hope to catch some internet from your place.

Stayed a few times in Seminyak recently and booked this place last minute for our final 5 nights - wish I hadnt. We actually stayed in the 'Honeymoon' villa. Please no-one ever take your newlywed to that villa.

For starters - the hotel didnt pick us up as arranged. Im cool with that so we got a lift with another group. They then put us in the wrong villa. Cool with that also, we moved. Finally into the right villa and I was pretty shocked at how run down it was... Water damage on alot of the paint work above the lighting, Bale cushion looked like it was about 20 years old and faded. Cane furniture was just staying alive and the fan in the outdoor area hardly moved. TV old. No WiFi. Bathroom flooded on heavy rains and it was joined to the villa next door. The toilet also didnt work at times. You can also hear everything the villa next door is saying and security were happy for people to wake up the complex at 3am.

Bedroom thankfully was actually nice and the pool was the best thing about the place - nice, big and clean.

A problem we had with this place was the mosquitoes. They were everywhere and so bad that we couldnt sit in the outdoor area at all (seriously) or go to the bathroom for an extended period of time without getting eaten alive. They were pretty much immune to the mozzy coils that we lit up (4 at a time) and we used up a can of spray and had bushmans on. These were the mozzies from hell.

BUT...

The worst was the privacy. We caught (as someone else on TripAdvisor mentioned) someone snooping over the villa wall into our bedroom. THAT isnt cool... especially if this was meant to be the honeymoon villa! Security said that the guy was "cleaning the roof and from the villa next door"... absolute lie. we saw him peering over the wall twice... be careful.

So all up we only used the villa as a base to sleep and jump in the pool post beach... Pretty annoying when you pay enough to get place alot better down the road. Nice location but as we had a scooter it didnt matter for us but probably would be beneficial for those less mobile. Will never go back here.

Room Tip: Go for a villa that's not in this complex

Dear guest

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our villas. I am certainly dissapointed that your stay was not all that it could have been.

I would like to apologize on behalf of the hotel and its team for your stay. You might be interested to know that renovation is going to take place, but it will be done in stages so we will repaint the walls, polish the furniture, fix the flooding problem in the bathroom etc. In regard to the mosquitoes, we have done all we could to to fix that problem by spraying 3 to 4 times a week but unfortunately due particular season (rainy season) in Bali, it is very hard to eliminate the problem effectively.

We have also taken the necessary action in regard to the peeking and we will do our best to ensure that this will not happen again in the future.

Once again please do accept my appologies
