Stayed here with a friend in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa for 4 nights. The villa was lovely, it had everything we needed for our stay. Our basic breakfast was included each day in the rate, it included a fruit selection, juice, tea, coffee, eggs cooked however you requested, toast.....anything extra was charged additionally (like mee goreng, nasi goreng, pancakes, bacon etc....) but charged very reasonably. The staff would buy the ingredients required at the supermarket and this was then added to our bill at the end (very cheap!) There was a water cooler of filtered water in the kitchen, we could fill up a jug and put it in the fridge for it to be cold. Ice was readily made from this same filtered water and available in our freezer.
The bathrooms didn't have a bath, but the outdoor shower in the bathroom was lovely. The water pressure was great (sometimes this can be an issue in Bali).
The bedrooms were of a nice size, with a mosquito canopy pulled around the bed each night. The staff were lovely and would assist with anything we asked for.
The location was great on Jalan Drupadi, not right on the main road but close enough to walk to and taxis were always available to flag down when needed.
The air-con in one of the rooms decided to stop working so someone was called to fix it, which it was temporarily but then stopped working again. The staff offered to move us to another villa to compensate for this.
Overall, we loved it here, spent most of our time there laying by the pool on the loungers, swimming, reading.....was very relaxing.
Would recommend these villas to other travellers.
(I'd also recommend the food delivery service for lunches/dinners if you feel like staying in. There's a brochure in the villa with many restaurants to choose from, just called the reception with our order and they then ordered it for us. Food delivered promptly and then the cost of the meal was added to our final bill to be paid at check-out).

I stayed here recently. The location is great if you want to be close to Seminyak but also removed enough to be quiet and private.

The gardens in the villa are very established and really nice. The pool was great - the temperature perfect every day!

The accomodation itself is ok - but somewhat tired and in need of a good update. That said - if you don't mind that you can have a good still have a good stay here.

If I stay again - and I'd consider it if my first choices were fully booked - I'll skip the villa breakfast which they make in your villa while you wait and head out to eat.

My main disappointment with Villa8 was the attitude of those in charge. Maybe they just didn't like me but the overall service feel here was "mean" "tight" or "on the cheap" - which is a shame. I stayed at two other villas on my trip and the service at those two were outstanding.

We recently spent 4 nights in their 4BR villa, which turned out to include an extra bunk room. Generous sized airconditioned bedrooms with walk-in robes were basic but clean. Bathrooms were large Bali style indoor/outdoor. 2 separate buildings surrounding a large grassed yard and swimming pool with the privacy of bamboo and palm trees. Open, outdoor and covered living area and kitchen with large sofas to relax together. Also has a large TV room with massive day bed to unwind in some aircon or send the kids. Has a library room as well. Good internet connection speeds. Staff were very attentive and friendly and will come and cook you breakfast of a morning. It's not the newest villa in Seminyak, but its clean, friendly and great value. I would highly recommend Villa 8!!

A great place to stay with a group. Our villa contained the main building with open kitchen, dining, 3 bedrooms (Double, twin and double bunk), and entertainment room. A detached block adjacent had a double and twin. Total 10 + you could use massive sofa in entertainment room. All open toilet/showers. Gardens and pool great. All clean. A 2 k walk to beach could prove irritating if you were here to surf but cheap taxis solve this dilemma. Simple breakfast included serves well. Very happy and attentive service from staff. A great Italian restaurant over the road at Zibiru if you've had your limit at the local Warung.

We stayed in the deluxe villa for four nights. I had arranged to be picked up at the airport but this didn't happen. A bit disappointing standing around at midnight trying to find our driver. We got a taxi instead. When I mentioned this to the management they organised the return trip at no cost which made up for my initial thoughts. The Villa itself was great. 2 bedrooms and a shared bathroom. All were clean. The garden and pool area were lovely to sit around and relax in. Breakfast was prepared for us daily and was always yummy. The villa is close to many shops and restaurants. We had a peek at the other villas and they looked fabulous. A lot bigger pool and out door areas.

We recently stayed at villa 8 for 2 nights. The villa is located on Jl Drupadi and about 5 mins walk from Jl Oberoi. Jl Drupadi has very little footpaths on either side so you do need to be careful at night and with children. The 2 bedroom villa is large and provided plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 children. The private pool area is beautiful and there is little noise from the other villas or streets. Breakfast is cooked in the villa and is yummy and huge! The staff are very sweet and I would definitely stay at villa eight again.

We had really wonderful service during our stay at Villa Eight, we absolutely loved it.

We found all the staff to be kind, courteous and charming! Our lovely housekeepers were great, making our stay that much easier, especially with our two young children.
The villa was very clean. The pool area was lovely. The secure mosquito nets over the beds were wonderful, the outside showers fantastic and the living area sophisticated but relaxed and very spacious.
Our cooked meals were delicious. We were collected from the airport on time and later delivered to our 2nd destination once our stay at Villa8 came to an end. We loved that we couldn't hear any business once we were in the walls of our villa but that Seminyak's Eat Street was just a short walk or cab ride away; and cabs were always available in the street. Wonderful, thanks Villa8 for making our stay in Bali so great.

Room Tip: We had a Super Deluxe Room for our family of 4 - 2 spacious bedrooms with King size beds
