“Elite haven in the heart of Seminyak”

In a market saturated with villas, it's hard to find one that stands apart from the rest. I found this place through Elite Havens and was blown away by the photos. I've learned the hard way that what you see is not always what you get, but in the case of Villa Issi it is exactly as described.

It has a modern, open living feel, but be warned it is not designed with young children in mind.The layout was perfect for our travelling group, with two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs, separating the oldies from the young ones.

It has all the creature comforts you'd expect from a high end villa. What sets it apart is the space that makes you feel like you're in your own little sanctuary, not crammed between hundreds of other villas. As well as this, the bifold doors into the dining and lounge area give you the flexibility to remain cool indoors without having to retreat to the bedroom, unlike a lot of other villas.

And then there's the staff. Highly professional but friendly and personable at the same time. We learned lots about the local culture and customs, as Dewa and the team were only too willing to share their knowledge and engage our curiosity.

Whatever the need/ request, they had it covered. When I enquired about where to find a birthday cake, not only did they source the cake but helium balloons and a surprise singalong to go with it - compliments of the villa. When we couldn't decide between pancakes and crepes for breakfast (a special request they were more than happy to accommodate), we got both, beautifully presented.

Taking care of all our reservations, questions and requests, they were always on hand to make the trip hassle free. It was lovely to be greeted warmly every time we returned from an exhausting day out.

It is a highly secure villa and we always felt that we were in good hands.

My only criticism is that it's a little off the beaten track and somewhat inconvenient for taxis to reach so we did much of the travelling between main road and the villa on foot. But a little extra exercise is not a bad thing when you're consume countless cocktails.

“Above our expectations.”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

You won't be disappointed with Villa Iss. It is managed by Dewa. A wonderfully kind and attentive host. Nina and the other staff are all wonderful. The villa is so beautiful and clean and a short walk from Seminyak Square, KuDeTa and the beach. The food at the villa was amazing. The pool was always spotless and the perfect temperature. We had a beautiful holiday at Villa Issi and hope we can stay there again.

“How amazing!”
Reviewed January 27, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This Villa and its staff headed by Dewa ....... simply amazing! Nina, Ketut, Peng, Gusti, Made ( I think I've probably forgotten someone....my apologies) made our families stay incredible. This is a big Nirvana in the middle of Seminyak within walking distance to the main shopping strip and would return without hesitation to this 6 star experience!

“Another glorious stay at Issi.”
Reviewed November 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This is our second stay at Villa Issi and we were again overly impressed by the villa and the staff.

Villa Issi is such a tranquil place, the gardens are zen like and we loved spending our days lazing by the pool. The Villa itself is by far one of the best we have stayed in. Large living quarters where the inside meets the outside with very current technology throughout all the living and sleeping zones. The infinity pool is not only visually beautiful but a great spot to sun bath and swim, the pool is kept immaculate. Its a great place to escape or to entertain. The set up gives groups or families separate sleeping areas allowing for privacy and time out if needed.

Not only is the villa beautiful but so are the staff. We cant speak highly enough about the team that look after you throughout your stay. Dewa, Mertha, Adhi, Made, Agus and Ping are a warm and hard working team who leave no stone unturned, they were always a step ahead but not intrusive. The chef Kadek is a master and we ate some of best meals in all our travels at Villa issi. Ask for a Balinese banquet and be blown away. We miss all the staff, truly wonderful people who make the Villa what it is. After returning from a night out they greet you with 'welcome home' and this is what Villa Issi is, for all its glory its still very homely with a huge heart.

All I can say is book this place now, you will thank me.

“Pure Lux with first class service.”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Villa Issi was booked by my partner and friends as a surprise for my 40th birthday. This place is pure luxury and style. What a wonderful surprise I received.

Villa Issi is stylish beyond belief with the interiors and furnishings extremely contemporary with clean lines, modern art and a very hip fit out. Issi was certainly first class. We stayed in the master bedroom and again the fit out was impressive with gorgeous art works, black and white monochrome styling with a lavish bathroom complete with indoor and outdoor shower, sumptuous bath and a walk in wardrobe fit for a princess. The Bose sound system ran through the room and the pop up plasma TV a nice touch. Long, black curtains that were sexy and deep, dark floorboards completed the look.

The two downstairs bedrooms were suites within themselves, both containing their own outdoor bathrooms and gardens. The third bedroom was also amazing. All four bedrooms were private, had large queen beds, luxury linens and outstanding bathrooms.

The infinity pool was lavish and well maintained, with sun lounges and beds for all the guests. The kitchen decked out in stainless steel, a constantly replenished fridge with quality cocktail glasses and dinnerware.

I cannot say enough regarding this Villa. Everything is perfectly maintained and as a group we all fell in love with the gardens, the pool and the ambiance. The location is a five minute walk to Ku De Ta and about a fifteen minute walk to ‘eat street’.

Finally and most importantly the staff. Unpretentious, sincere and warm. Weda, Mertha and the staff are some of the best we’ve encountered on our travels. Nothing was too difficult and always done with a smile. Every request we gave to Weda was met with warmth and was fulfilled with grace. It was extremely lovely coming downstairs every morning to hear a very warm ‘good morning’ asking how Id slept, if I needed anything and how I’d like my coffee. The staff made such an effort yet they were not noticeably around crowding your space. Small touches all along the way made the difference, birthday cake, balloons, assisting with my birthday surprise, a beautifully cooked international breakfast; we really can’t say enough. An amazing team that Management should be very proud off. The Balinese Banquet we had on our first evening was exceptional, we are still talking about it as a group back at home in Melbourne. We really cannot say enough about the staff, we were all genuinely very sad to say goodbye to the team at Issi.

We are already planning our return to Issi next year. Until then, thank you to the staff for making our stay a memorable one.
