“Fantastic family holiday”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed in the Hibiscus Villa for 8 days on our recent (May) family holiday and had a fantastic time. From the actual villa and facilities in the villa, the location, to the service we received from our welcoming and always helpful, smiley 'butler' Cipta, I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to stay in the beautiful Seminyak. The place was amazing and staff even better. Service was exceptional from reception, to driver (Made) to butler and would definitely stay here again when visiting Bali.

We were 4 girls. Returned yesterday from bali. My mother's been there twice so we went on her recommendation. We liked the 2 bedroom Frangipani villa at start before booking. Unfortunately it wasn't available so instead we were given the 3 bedroom Palm 2 villa where one bedroom was locked. We stayed for 3 nights 4 days.The villa was rightly 'serene'. The service was remarkable along with the food prepared by our butler. Beautiful ambiance and lovely poolside we made great use of. Serene villa spa massage & body scrubs were excellent. There's a long shopping street for clothes and shoes a few kms away from the villa. Worth it! This villa is highly recommendable.

We stayed for 4 nights at Serence Villas, in the 1 bedroom Lotus Villa. My husband and I thought it was great. Clean, modern, and a great Balinese stay.

Our own plunge pool was great for dips to cool off, only one minor thing to point out is that we didn't get much sun into our area by our pool, so wasn't great for sunbaking (not sure if this was time of year, or just circumstantial given time of day we were home). I think the larger villas would have more area for lazing about in the sun.

The property is located just off the main food drag of Seminyak, so it's a short walk to the shops, restaurants, and not much further to the beach. If you're not into walking, cabs were super easy to come by from right out the front of the property.

Our butler (forgive me for not remembering her name) was fantastic. So friendly, polite, and nothing was any trouble for her. The food she prepared us was great. All other staff we encountered were just as pleasant.

The booking process was great too. Email communication with Serene Villas was easy.

We highly recommend Serene Villas for anyone looking for a great place with a difference, in a great location.

Thank you for our recent stay at the Serene Villa. It was lovely, we'd recommend it to anyone who wants to relax in a villa and be close to the style and culture of Seminyak.

We choose to stay here after a recommendation from a friend. Loved the service, and beautiful, efficent staff. The villa was clean, modern and relaxing.

Our only draw back was the lotus villa (one bedroom) was a little open, we were unable to relax in the kitchen/lounge/pool area without the sound of the car park just outside the door or being eaten by bugs... a door to close this area off would have made it perfect and maybe to reduce the locals running their bikes for extended periods of time....

The butler is great, so friendly and beautful food, but not our style, we like to dine in a resturant for breaky: although i can see how this is perfect for a family. (nice and safe).

Worth staying at Serene Villa when heading to Bali, you really do get it all. Close to shops, cafes and the beach EVERYTHING is walking distance, or easy to get a taxi right out the front. :)

Serenes location not far from Restaurants, shopping beach and night life but still hidden from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak makes it the ideal choice for guests wanting serenity and all that Bali has to offer on their doorstep.

Recently returned from a 3-night stay at Serene Villas. This came as a recommendation from a friend, so we thought we'll give it a shot. There was a discount on the pricing, so it helps to speed up the decision process. Service was great, the vehicle that picked us up from the airport dropped us off directly at the doorstep of our villa and that was a pleasant touch to kickstart our holiday. Overall, service staff were attentive and polite. I do wish that our bathroom was sheltered though. It was a lucky thing that it didn't rain during our stay, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to shower at all!

Serene Lotus is our only 1 bedroom villa and is connected by a locked door to Serene Hibiscus our 2 bedroom villa adjacent and often groups of friends rent both villas to have the luxury of being connected but still the privacy of being in a separate villa. Bathrooms in Bali tend to be open to the sky and if their is a little rain then the experience under thew warm shower with the rain can be exhilarating.

If you want somewhere private, luxurious and VERY relaxing stay at Serene Villas. We had breakfast cooked by our personal chef every morning at the time we requested, our own private beautiful crystal clear pool, outdoor lounge area under gazebo, big outdoor day bed, layback pool chairs, gorgeous gardens etc. The staff ordered us motorbikes for $5 a day which were delivered to our villa, so easy. 2 minutes walk from villa there are plenty of good massage places and the beach and restaurants arent far away either. The staff were fantastic, I will definately be staying at Serene Villas again and recommending to people!!

Room Tip: We stayed at Villa Acacia but any of them would be fantastic I'm sure!

We are glad that you have enjoyed you stay at Villa Acacia. Many of our guests return often and enjoy staying at a different one of our villas within the Serene Villas complex. Each villa is unique in its design and this makes every stay different but at the same time with the same service we pride ourselves on. We hope that you will become on of our regular returning guests.

AMAZING, Everything was Wonderful, all the Villa's have there own pools & there own butler to cook your chosen breakfast, whenever you would like it, & make your fresh fruit juice each morning, if & when you'd like,& each Villa has it's own privacy with it's own front gates you enter thru & high walls.
We had friends staying in the other two bedroom Villa & also in the Three bedroom Villa, & they all said the same. (We did a special package price)
Our Butler Sucipta, was gorgous, such a lovely & helpful & caring man, who just wants your stay to be memorable & it CERTAINLY was !!
All the staff were GREAT & friendly & helpful.
I NEVER give anything 10 out of 10 or 100 out of 100....but on this occasion..... I do !
Hope to be back there in the future.......Oh & GREAT location, close to everything !
One last thing, it truely looks as good in real life as the above photo, which is the Hibiscus Villa, where I stayed : )

Hi Avril, We have passed your comments on to Mr Sucipta and thanks for your 100% approval rating thats always nice to hear. Hibiscus is a great villa with its large garden and like all our villas complete privacy so that guests feel like in their own Shangri-La. Traveling as part of a group like you were, but still having your own villa to escape to is a perfect solution when attending a wedding, birthday party or other event. We look forward to your return to Bali soon.
