We stayed at Cendana Villa in October 2013 with x2 other couples, celebrating my sister's 40th Birthday. We were picked up by Serene Villa transport and delivered to this amazing Villa that we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our Butler Sumi was an absolute delight preparing an amazing breakfast every morning. The airconditioned bedrooms were spacious and well appointed. x3 Large bathrooms, luxurious and refreshing after a hard day shopping. Pool was a delight in the morning, afternoon and evening. Loved staying at Serene Villas and will no doubt stay again next year. We have always stayed at large 5 Star Resorts but I must say staying in Villa accommodation in Bali is a fantastic change that I would recommend to anyone.
Thanks again to everyone that works at the Villas for making our stay truly memorable !!!!!
My sister had a fantastic 40th Birthday Celebration catered at the Villa with a seafood extravaganza !!
Well organised and impeccable cleanliness throughout the villa.

Room Tip: Cendana was perfect for x3 couples, private rooms and great to share breakfast in the mornings toget...

Thanks for your review. Staying in a villa when celebrating a birthday or special occasion cant be beat. Many guests after having their first stay at a villa in Bali never return to a traditional hotel. Come back and stay with us at Serene again soon.

We spent the 2nd week of our Bali holiday at Serene Villas (2 Bedroom Acacia) on a friend's recommendation - it was all that she & other reviewers have said; well located, excellent amenities & outstanding staff. Location in a quieter area between the shopping on J Raya Seminyak & the restaurant strip of J Kayu Aya is an ideal base to spend your days relaxing by your pool or step out for a meal or some shopping. (get the staff to inform you of the laneway "shortcuts") Beaches & bargains are what entice a lot of visitors to Bali, but for us it is the Balinese people that keep drawing us back & our 'butler', Sucipta, highlighted this once again. Attentive, friendly & informative, our interaction with him added to our understanding of Bali & provided a family atmosphere to our stay.We learnt a lot from him- suksma Sucipta. This was typical of all the staff. Would certainly recommend Serene for your Bali holiday

What a wonderful week we had at Serene Villas. An oasis in the heart of Seminyak, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets, but close enough to experience all the sights.
Our days started with a swim in our very own pool, followed by a delicious breakfast prepared for us by our housekeeper, who tended to all our requests. Days spent either in our secluded villa, or exploring the surrounds, or further afield in a car that was organised by the staff at the villas.
We could not have hoped for a better holiday, a relaxing break away from our busy lives. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Hibiscus room faced the sun and had the best location.

I've just returned from 7 glorious nights at Serene Villa's (Villa Kiran 1). Everything was exceptional from the very beginning! We arrived late and the transport from the airport saw us cut the long cues. The villa was even better than what was shown in the pictures. The pool was huge and the outdoor area was very private without being closed in. The "butler" was absolutely lovely. Cooked us delicious omelettes and pancakes every morning and assisted with our dinner/massage reservations over the phone which could be tricky with language barriers. He even fixed my broken sunglasses! In terms of cleanliness, the villa was always very clean and fresh beach towels were provided every day. We had a BBQ cooked for us one of the nights which was absolutely delicious. Lots of fresh seafood, meat and salads. I will be recommending Villa Kiran to everyone and will hopefully be able to make it back there myself soon!

Villa Kiran is one of our latest villas and we have passed on your comments to the staff who were glad that we have exceeded your expectations during your recent stay. Having the option of the staff preparing meals for guests in the villa is a surprise for many guests who enjoy doing this during their stay. We look forward to your return.

I've just returned from a 7 night stay in a one bedroom villa. From start to finish everything was perfect, staff are so friendly and helpful, the service is excellent, all aspects of our stay was catered to with a high standard. The food was very nice and most of all the staff are very flexible and cater to meet your needs.

Today is our last day in Bali at Serene Villas and we don't want to leave. We have been staying in Villa Palm 1 with our 2 young children for 9 nights and loved every minute of it! The villa and pool are lovely and the staff are great. Special mention goes to Yudi, he has made our stay so enjoyable and the kids will really miss him. He made us a lovely breakfast each day and attended to our every request but more importantly he was so caring and attentitive to our 2 children. They excitedly waited at the bedroom door every morning, waiting to greet Yudi Rudi (as they affectionately called him).
The villa management was thorough throughout the booking process and was very helpful when we had to push our booking dates back due to our daughter breaking her arm. They provided us with a pool fence, cot and extra bed which were all waiting for us on our arrival. We requested a mosquito net for our daughters bed which they promptly supplied. They also helped us out with a late checkout as it's always hard spending hours at the airport with small children.

The only negative thing we could possibly think of was the Mosquitos but the villa staff make every effort to keep them at bay with coils and spraying at night and fogging every few days. We did additional spraying of the bedroom ourselves before we went out at night and brought plenty of repellent to cover ourselves in. As mentioned earlier we also requested a net for our daughters bed and the cot was also supplied with a net.

This was our second year at Serene Villas (we have also stayed in Serene Garden Villa) and we will be back. We had a fantastic time. Thank-you again Serene Villas and Yudi!

My husband and I stayed in a 2 bedroom villa for 6 nights from 31st Aug. Every single thing about our stay was perfect - the villa was exactly as the photos showed, if not better. The service was completely 5 star - our butler Sucipta was informative, attentive and incredibly helpful without being too overbearing. The food & in villa cooked breakfasts were great, and the outside area of tghe villa itself were always kept in supreme condition. I was also rerally impressed with the size of the outdoor living space.. lots of grass, a bog day bed PLUS x4 deck chairs. And of course the pool - was a perfect size also!
After doing literally hours of research on villas in Seminyak, I booked Serene as I felt like they were the best value of the nicest/biggest looking villas that were still in a good part of Seminyak. (About a 3-4 min drive to both the beach and eat street).
Would 100% recomment this place and will definitely be back. They made our stay so easy and plesant!!
Oh and if you're into Mexican there was an amazing restaurant at the top of the street called lacalaca - about a 2 min walk and the best Mexican I;ve had outside of Mexico!!

Thanks for your feedback which we have passed on to the staff as well as Sucipta who was very happy to hear from you. With so many villas and so much choice in Bali and Seminyak it does become quite a marathon to search out the villa that will best suite each family or group of travelers. Serene and the team always try to treat our guests as new friends to ensure that everyone has an unforgettable experience with us. We do hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Please fell free to pass on your referral to family and friends.
