“Your search is over - stay here”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We stayed at Kembali villas (villa 2) for 5 nights mid December. From the moment we arrived until our transfer to Sanur, it was a fantastic.

The small group of 7 Villas are in a little Gang not far from Kudeta (next door to the Elysian).Once you get familiar with the little lanes, it is very easy to to get around Seminyak and one of the gangs will take you right into the heart of "Eat Street" - we used it most nights.

You are greeted by friendly office staff on your arrival and whisked straight to you villa, where you are given helpful information on the setup, breakfasts etc....but you wont be listening, your jaw will be dropping my the amazing sight as you walk in. My difficult to impress teens were speechless.

The set up is a main open air lounge/ dining/ kitchen Bale. The decor is sleek and modern, but still retains a Bali feel. The lounge is huge and very comfortable. The fans keep the area cool and breezy, even in humid December conditions. The lounge area faces on to a brilliant blue pool, which gets enough sun during the day so as to not be icy cold.

You then walk a short way over to the two bedrooms, which are airconditioned (ahhh, lovely). Again, both rooms are fitted out in a modern style and fit in with the overall look of the villa. There are big wardrobes and plenty of cupboard space and a small safe. The beds were firm but not rock hard. I found them very comfortable.
The bathrooms are semi outdoor and whilst not large, are modern and very clean. the waterfall shower is gorgeous.
Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs. The lounge is equipped with a BOSE sound dock and the WiFi reception was excellent whilst we were there.

Now to the staff - absolutely amazing. So kind and helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The office was staffed 90% of the time (that we could see) and the Security guards were always visable. We felt extremely safe there.

The housekeeping staff are in and out during certain times of the day - usually in the morning, then again early evening. You are given a schedule of the times they will be in (eg pool cleaning, mosquito coils, general cleaning). If you are seeking privacy, all you need to do is place the "Do not disturb" sign on your villa door and lock it. The staff are friendly, but discreet and at no time did we feel intruded upon.
We chose to have breakfast included and every morning Ari our maid came in to cook it for us. I felt like royalty. We chose eggs most days. My two teens also had the pancakes. All was well cooked and very enjoyable. You almost get too much food!

Whenever we needed a taxi, we just called down to the office who would arrange one and call us back once it was ready. Thankyou also to Ika for helping us out with many questions. We also arranged a day trip to Ubud and the Kembali staff sorted out an excellent driver (Ketut) for us.

We loved Kembali and would go back there without hesitation.

We stayed for 12 nights at Kembali Villas this year. We did have a great time but since coming back to Australia, we worked out it was a bit $$ compared to what you can get. Villa was beautiful, but just remember no connecting rooms, so would be ideal for 3 seperate couples. Wasn't the best for our family with 2 young kids. Doors did lock from outside so we always felt safe. Not very kid friendly as around villa was slippery tiles in water. (no problem if you don't have young ones).
We always felt very safe with lovely friendly guards at front of villa. Our maids were beautiful & breakfast cooked everyday was sensational! No fault there.
Noise: planes fly over from very early in morn to night. They were building next to our villa during day, so was very frustrating for me with a sleeping baby. There was nothing that Kembali could do about it:(
Great location, central to everything! Esp divine restaurants so close on motorbike or car.
Awesome time of year, we had 1 morning of rain and that was it.
With laundry, just beware that most things will shrink, & a few pieces of clothing went missing, or damaged, never to bereplaced. (Staff did offer $$ for missing items).
Bali is getting $$ esp this time of year, but look around!
Also not much for kids to do at Villa, there were no toys we could hire.
Mozzies were bad, but the villa certainly caters for everything such as mozzie coils, spray & they were fine if you kept bedroom doors closed.

Room Tip: I don't think it really matters.

Stayed at Kembali Villa (Villa 3) as my first part of the journey to Bali.

When I arrived at Denpasar airport, the VIP service arranged by Kembali (with additional cost) was very efficient and helpful. Through immigration/visa and luggage claim within 10 minutes. The pick up from the airport was smooth and no hassle, considering how busy the airport was.

It was a 30 minute drive to Kembali due to busy traffic. The location of the villa is great – a easy walk to the most “in” places, the beaches and shopping.

Once we arrived at Kembali we were greeted by many smiley faces. We were shown our villa and check in was done in the open space lounge in our own villa, with welcoming drink, cold towel and again more smiles. First impression was WOW, what a fantastic place. Very modern but yet some Balinese elements were kept.

Villa 3 has 2 bedroom, a open space lounge/dining area, a kitchen and a private pool. There are also a lot of water feature that really calm you down after a busy day shopping in Seminyak. Most of the day I just stayed by the pool or in the lounge, read my book and listened to my favourite songs. Yes an Ipod/iphone decking with Bose stereo is available in the lounge. Both bedrooms are of similar size, with excellent view of the garden/pool and both have outdoor shower.

The estate is well maintained. Villa is cleaned in the morning by hard working maids who also make you breakfast or whatever you wish for. The pool is attended twice a day by the pool boy so it’s always clean. Unlike a big corporate hotel, here they know you by name and whatever request is met. You feel that you are staying at your own house. Breakfast come in various choices (American, Kembali, Health, Indonesian) all accompanied by excellent coffee/tea, bread, fruit.

Kembali also offers shopping service if you would like to stock up your fridge. Minibar price is very reasonable (USD 1 for a beer as opposite to USD 6 that I paid at other hotel’s minibar). They even arranged money exchange for me so all I needed to do was waiting in my lounge.

During our stay my partner unfortunately got the infamous Bali Belly and it was severe. They had no problem arranging a doctor visit even though it was late at night. Gusti at the security was very sympathetic, very caring and made sure everything was alright. He always had time for a little bit of chat and you just feel he is a friend that you’ve known for ages. Next day all the maids and cleaners asked me about how my partner recovered.

Overall it’s a well priced, well located villa if you are in Seminyak area to enjoy what it has got to offer. All the sincere smiles started my holiday very well. Thank you Kembali for a fantastic few days of sunshine, companion and a relax time.

My friends and I stayed at Kembali for 3 nights and loved our stay. The rooms are modern, clean and classy. We loved the outdoor bathrooms. The pool was huge and bathed in sunshine, and there was a huge outdoor living area and kitchen.

The staff are all incredibly helpful, happy and love to have a chat.

Would definitely book Kembali again in a heartbeat.

The moment we stepped through the doors to the villas we knew it was lovely. The floating steps, water fall, the open sided lounge with. Beautiful pool and fy bed greeting us. Two lovely air conditioned bedrooms to the side with floor to ceiling glass overlooking the pool area. Heaven. Breakfast was cooked for you t a time of your choice in the small well equipped kitchen, the staff were all lovely and gracious and they even got the shopping and supplies in when requested. 10 mins walk to Ku De Ta and other nightlife hot spots in Seminyak it was tranquil and wonderfully relaxing. Excellent.
