“Average Location But Nice Accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We stayed there for 5 nights in January 2012. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the villa was clean, spacious and comfortable. The pool was clean and reasonably sized, but the sun beds were a little dusty. We needed to walk through an open air corridor to get to our villa, so it's not fun when it's raining (which happens often in Bali). Also, breakfast left a lot to be desired, although we ordered room service for dinner one night and the standard was much higher.
I think the suites are more suited to couples because the shower and toilet are outdoors. I can't imagine friends (who need privacy in the toilet or taking a shower) feeling that comfortable in this sort of setting.
This part of Seminyak is a little difficult to navigate on foot, because there are no sidewalks. As the roads are narrow and the cars tend to be quite fast, I didn't feel 100% safe walking around. The roads are also not in great condition possibly due to the amount of construction going on in the area. It would be even more difficult with kids in tow, I assume.
Also it is quite far from the centre of Seminyak, so will need to catch a taxi to get around- we found that the only honest taxis were the Blue ones with the swan logo. The other ones we had the misfortune of hailing were downright dodgy - refusing to turn the meter on and trying to negotiate skyhigh fares.

I stayed here; deluxe suite at the end of last month for 5 days.
I was greeted with superb massage session and bath filled with flower.
Furnishings were comfortable, bed was lovely, esp with the net to keep off mosquitoes.
Bath and shower are outdoor, quite fun.
The premise was well kept and very pretty with lots of flowers.
Morning breakfasts were delivered at time, delicious and a lot.
Staff were all very kind and friendly.
Candlelit dinner did not have any candle, though.

I also had a Balinese cooking class, which I am the most delighted with!
We had so much fun and it is all worth it.

Location wise, I had a chartered car all the time so did not have any problem.
local restaurants and clubs were also great. Airport is not too far away either.

I am returning to Bali and will probably stay here again.

Booked the Deluxe Suite from 5 to 9 July 2012. Arrangements were made for us to spend the first night at a nearby villa as we were told that the airconditioner in the Deluxe Suite had broken down. The next day, we checked in at the Sanyas Suite and were upgraded to the Junior Suite for the next 3 nights.

Check in was efficient and the staff were pleasant and helpful. However, the reception area was small and non-descript and did not appear particularly welcoming.

Requests for morning call and for extra mosquito coils, candles and matches were attended to efficiently. Breakfast was served on time every day and having breakfast by our private pool was a treat.

However, our Junior Suite could do better with some maintenance/alterations and additions works.

Our pool had some spots of algae on the sides of the pool, particularly along the "water-line".

The toilet stall was also dark and wet, as there was no overhead lamp in the cubicle and there was a leak that caused a pool of water on the floor. We had to light some candles on the ledge near the toilet to provide some illumination.

For reasons best known to the architect/interior designer, the toilet roll holder was placed right next to the cistern, on the wall behind you. So you have to twist your body/arm somewhat to reach the toilet roll holder.

We were provided with clay bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. It was appalling to find that 2 out of the 3 bottles were chipped near the neck of the bottles. Imagine if someone had cut his/her hand on the jagged edges!

The 2 water fountains/spouts at the main door were also not working/not turned on. As such, the 2 little "streams" at the doorway had stagnant water. We shudder to imagine if mosquitoes were breeding there.

Further, there was a huge, empty clay jar outside our villa. We are not sure what purpose it could have served, for it had a huge hole at the bottom!

The only redeeming factors were the spacious bedroom and plush 4-poster bed.

Overall, a pleasant enough stay, but I will not return until there is some upgrading done to the property.

It was a very good surprise. We had to change our booking at the "last minute" and we found The Sanyas Suite". It was a wonderfull experience. The location is not perfect, but it's quite good. It's not perfect because you're not at a short walking distance of the center, but if you're in Bali, be a Balineese, and if you rent a motor bike it's perfect.

The staff is really nice, very thoughtfull and always avaiable. The villa we stayed, was superb. The room is very good and you have a kitchen and a "living room". The private pool is all you can wish for. Honestly, you don't want to leave.

We went as a couple, but it's also perfect for a family because of all the facilities.

Thanks for the experience.

When we were planning a weekend trip to Bali, it was high-season. I wanted to stay in villa with private pool, but all of the places we looked into was fully booked. Till it was last minute, I stumbled upon Sanyas Suite on trip advisor and we ended up booking it via Agoda, because it had a discounted rate. On the plane to Bali, I was a bit skeptical and told my boyfriend "let's just hope this hotel is nice, you know how photos can be deceiving.." Yet when we got there, it just exceeded our expectation! We stayed in the junior suite villa, it is really spacious with a heart-shapped pool and tub! All the staff were very helpful, and they'll deliver your breakfast to your villa on requested timing. Very serene and romantic ambiance, you wouldn't wanna get out of the villa! I would totally recommend this place to friends.

We only stayed for 2 nights, but wish it had been longer! Our suite was absolutely beautiful, such a relaxing place to be. It was such a treat waking up in a huge four poster bed and looking out onto our own pool. The service was great too, efficient but not intrusive so that we were able to enjoy the privacy afforded by having our own space. We felt far from the hustle and bustle of the hectic roads of Bali beyond the walls of our villa- I would highly recommend for couples looking for a relaxing retreat.
