“Beyond Expectations”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

The only question i had for myself at the end of my stay at this villa was "Why did i not book more nights" From the moment i arrived they had won me over, with the cold refreshing towel and a glass of the best orange juice i had ever tried.I booked the deluxe villa I arrived at 12pm and the check-in time was 2pm, there was not an issue at all, they quickly whisked me and my partner off to our room and along with the concierge the manager joined to introduce himself and advise "if there is anything more we can do to make your stay better please let me know". I only booked 1 night which was our last night in Bali after a 25 day stay. I unfortunately cannot comment on individual features of my stay as advised in my title it was Beyond Expectations in every aspect of my time there. If you are looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle and the best service you have ever received i would definitely recommend this villa.

We booked the Deluxe Suite Villa off agoda.com for 5 days and was pleasantly surprised by the upgrade to the Executive Suite Villa when we arrived! To sum up our stay:

Cons:
- Bathroom floor was sandy. Wash/basin area not that clean. Traces of dust and dirt on the complimentary toiletries (toothbrush, razor, etc.)
- The mosquito coils help with warding off those mozzies, but the smell can be a bit too much to bear as all doors were closed with the air-con on. Boyfriend couldn’t stand the stuffiness, so he puts it out every night.
- Wi-fi not working during our 5 day stay. No biggie. Not there for the internet.
- Food was just okay. Unless necessary/lazy, eat out for dinner :)

Pro:
- Staff was very friendly, smiley and helpful all the time. Splendid!
- A complimentary plate of fruits on our first day.
- Private pool was cleaned every day. Weather was great, so pool temp was just nice. Pure privacy, no complains at all!
- By the time we return to the villa in the evening, the staff would have prepared our villa for the night (lights, air-con, bed, mosquito coils).
- Drinking water dispenser in the room.
- Bed is very very very comfortable.
- The villa was supposed to have wi-fi that guests can access from their rooms. They also have this ‘business lounge’ area where they have a desktop, with working internet connection and printer as well.
- Email reply was very prompt from the reservation. They even gave the boyfriend a complimentary birthday cake at breakfast! +++ points here! :)
- Breakfast is served at the villa. You just have to let them know what you want and when the day before, and they’ll come right on time bringing your breakfast to your villa. Not only that, they do take the initiative to set up the dining table for breakfast too :) They have like 3 sets of breakfast: Continental, Western and Indonesian. The boyfriend had the Western, and I the Indonesian throughout our stay. Would advice to go for the Indonesian (either Nasi Goreng or Mee Goreng), was much better than the Western.

Though the villa is a bit dated, but if you need a private, relaxing and quiet place to be, this is it.

December was rainy season so was stuck in the room for half of the 5 days we were there, but the pool gave enough exercise for the restless boyfriend who would jump right in once he got out of bed. Service was friendly and if you order room service, get their local delicacies. It may be much more expensive than anything outside but at least its delicious, which is more than I can say for their western selection.

Private villa with its own pool in northern Seminyak area. Although it was too far to walk to Seminyak Square for instance, the staff were always happy to take us in the minivan. The taxi ride back cost all of 10-12K IDR (just over one dollar). The spa prices were high for Bali, but a 2-hour massage alongside your own pool is something everyone needs to have at least once! The staff were very helpful, and the breakfast delivered daily to your villa, at the time of your choosing, was also excellent. We had a wonderful stay, and would certainly go back.

Having stayed at a more upmarket Villa is Seminyak, I was a little dissapointed with the Sanyas. That being said, it was pretty good value for money. The twin room was comfortable and very clean and appreciate the drop down nets to fight off those Denghi infested mozzies during our sleep. The sitting area was comfy but missed having an outdoor TV. Kitchen was small and a bit dark but hey, I wasnt there to cook. Breaky was nice but not cooked in your kitchen which I like to see. They did take a while to clean up. Pool was nice albeit a bit chilly. LOVED the massages which they convert your sun lounges into massage tables. Good value for money with 2 for the price of one massage and just like going to a boutique massage in Seminyak. A bit far out of town but within easy walking distance to Sarong, Potato Head etc. Drivers happy to take you anywhere anytime.

Room Tip: Little out of the way, quite, clean, value for money.

Had a great stay here for a few nights, location is a bit away from all buzz of Seminyak. But we had a bike & quite happy to walk. We got a great deal on the villa, compared to online rates. As we called around & did some bartering, would of been disappointed if we had paid more. As villas are bit aged compared to some others in the seminyak area for the same cost. The pool was lovely & we only used it once though, due to it being absolutely freezing. The pool was in the shade all day & never got the chance to warm up.
The housekeeping was terrific, except a little slow on taking brekky / room service plates away. I disagreed with other reviewers about lizard / geeko poo / ants / bugs...ah it's the tropics live with it. Outdoor bathroom was great but garden could do with some tidying...but that may of been just our villa.
Staff where very happy, helpful & gracious. Especially when I lost room key & they had to keep opening door for us, while spare was cut.
Brekky could be better, but saying that we weren't there for the food !!

i'm with the last reviewer - sigmaz. don't know what all the fuss was about. and wish i'd read sigmaz review before booking the Sanyas suite! Also as for the sanyas advertising of a peaceful place, hard to be peaceful when the villa appears to be on the flight path to the airport and you are woken by planes flying over head!
this is our 2nd trip to Bali & seminyak area. we'd such a great trip the last time we couldn't wait to come back. had stayed in Pradha villas our last trip, which were fab! they were booked up. so based on previous reviews booked Sanyas.

while the villa was well designed & we had loads of space, it was badly maintained and could do with a serious upgrade as it must have been decades since it was last done up! the rug in the living area was frayed, arms of the sofa badly scratched. towels while changed every day, were old & frayed.

breakfast was very, very average! the bread was not fresh & we had to ask for fresh coffee. as they just kept giving us the nescafe sachets. the staff who delivered the breakfast were very pleasant & helpful.

the management also need to work with the staff to improve their interpretation of english & also manners , i'm aware & understand english is not their first language, but when a simple request becomes a long winded discussion -- that's not good! we rang up to reception, to ask if they could request the people in the next villa to turn down the music just a bit. i ended up having to deal with 3 staff, the first who put me on hold and then hung up. as you can imagine by the time i spoke to the 3rd it was becoming annoying. asked for the manager to phone us back with regard to this -- he didn't phone us back for over 7 hours!

checkout also ended up being a long winded process, with multiple slips of paper for everything, which was quite frustrating when you were trying to review your bill. They badly need to also upgrade their system!

weather was great & there are loads of great bars & restaurants in Seminyak. so we still had a lovely few days but won't be rushing back to stay in the Samyaa suite.
