As I write this review I am sad to be leaving this luxury villa after a wonderful 5 night stay with my family. The staff made this place all the more special, nothing was too much trouble for them. When we arrived I was truly shocked at the size of the villa. All bedrooms were a great size and we loved the huge outdoor/indoor bathrooms. You are only a short walk to great bars and restaurants and the area is very safe. We loved the pool in the middle of the property and were able to make use of it daily. Even in the evenings the water was nice and warm. Fab breakfasts were cooked for us daily by the lovely Liana and we can't thank the staff enough for their wonderful hospitality. I would like to give a special thanks to Liana, Made, Dewa, Widi, Suardana and Ngurah. GSA. We wish you all the best for the future and hope to see you again as we will be back someday! Cannot recommend this place enough!
We loved our stay at Villa Menari in Seminyak!
The wonderful staff welcomed us on arrival, and continued to be friendly and helpful for the whole stay. Delicious breakfast was prepared for us each morning, and the staff even organised a surprise cake for my birthday! There was a real 'family' vibe among the staff and guests.
As for the villa itself, it was beautiful! The pool and balcony were great for relaxing in the sun, while the bedrooms were kept nice and cool. The villa was cleaned daily, as was the pool/outdoor area. We were very impressed by the overall look, feel and cleanliness.
Location-wise, we were a short walk away from Seminyak's main strip of restaurants, bars and shops - very convenient.
We would like to thank Made, Liana, Dewa, Suardana, Rani, Sweta, Putu and all the staff at Villa Menari for making our first experience of Bali so memorable. We will definitely recommend Villa Menari to our friends!
Stayed there from 01st to 05th dec 2016 w familiy of 6adults n 2kids.
Staff - very friendly n helpful.jus a phone call away. Front office jus 3min walk away.
In house chef - avearage quality food but
Villa - nice place n pool but alot of mosquitoes. Everyone were bitten countless time. Few cockroaches spotted on e living hall. Lizards can be an irritant as well. Insect replellents provided in e villa. Remember to use them daily.
Cleaniness - can be improved. 1st nite floor was very sticky. Had to request for e floor to b mopped.
Rooftop - virtually unused cause of mosquitoes. Too close to many banana trees. Daybed was dirty.
Pool - nice and clean
Location - good. Within walking distance seminyak village n plenty of eateries.
Great mexican restaurant jus down e road.
Good option of italian restaurants avail near seminyak village.
Shopping - more than average but legian n kuta has more options for market stalls. Remember to bargain politely. Friendly ppl.
Overall stay was above average at villa. If e weather had been better (was raining daily) maybe mosquitoe issues wld hve been lesser.
Recemmonded for group of friends rather than for family w young kids. Especially if ur kids r afraid of creepy crawlies...
We love this Villa and we have stayed at quite a few over the years. It has all you need for comfort and the staff are great. There are TVs in all 3 bedrooms and the lounge area. The wifi is faster than what we have at home and great reception throughout. Lounges are comfy as are the beds. We had an extra single (3 in total) in the kids room and there was still ample space. The kitchen is well equipped and everything is cleaned well,
The breakfasts are excellent and plenty of food. We would recommend a coffe machine if there was one thing to add.
The pool was fantastic and the rooftop area is lovely at night.
Made (the manager) will help with anything you need. We needed a doctor on our last night and the villa got one within an hour who was fantastic.
You could t get a better location with eat street a short stroll down the road and anything you need within walking distance. It was our second stay at this property and we highly recommend it.
The only thing we were missing was a second safe in the second master bedroom. You will need to bring your own power adapters too, there weren't any provided (but they are cheap and plentiful at the supermarkets).
Thanks Made and staff for making our holiday relaxing and enjoyable!

Really love the deco of the villa. It has a touch of rustic Balinese charm with an overall modern feel. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. The kids loved the pool. The team at Villa Menari (Sudarsana, Liana, Mahardika, Suardana, Dewa and Putu Sweta) were friendly and helpful.
We also love how the beach, shops and eateries were just a convenient 10 to 15mins walk away. Lots of choices. for food.
The staff who looked after us were amazing, they always went above and beyond. The rooms and facilities were above expectations. The location is perfect.
Absolutely beautiful villa located close to wonderful shops and cafe's in the heart of Seminyak.
The villa had the most gorgeous staff who were attentive but not obtrusive who cooked breakfast of a high quality in our villa each morning including fresh juices and a good selection which could be followed by a swim in your villa's private pool and followed by reading books on the private day bed located on the private roof top followed by a massage and facial by beauticians recommended by Bali Realty. So relaxing to have all of this in such luxurious surroundings and you really feel like you are a million miles away......
High quality furnishings and attention to detail in everything from the lampshades through to the thatching of the ceiling in the main lounge area overlooking the plunge pool with plush Balinese gardens and sculptures add to the whole experience.
Gorgeous bathrooms with outdoor/indoor showers, deep bathtubs and again attention to detail.
The defining moment when I realised we had booked the right accommodation was when my nine year old commented how he felt like we were home and he felt safe when we returned to our villa after a day out.
Do yourself a favour and stay here - 24 hour security, luxurious surroundings, centrally located, lovely,competent and family friendly staff and everything available at your fingertips as you are only a five minute walk away from world class restaurants where you can eat in or takeaway and everything else Seminyak has to offer.
