“One of the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for the first 4 nights of a 2 week holiday. We were there with 2 adult kids of 20 and 18. We were in villa 7, specifically chosen due to its configuration of a tv room between bedroom 2 and 3. We couldn't have been happier. The villa is gorgeous. It's spacious, modern but with Balinese features, all rooms had ensures, the pool is huge and inviting and the staff couldn't be more accommodating. They provided mozzie coils and personal repellents. The breakfasts were lovely, and it truly was an oasis.
We have stayed in villas before (currently at Kunja villa which is equally beautiful - hard to choose between them), but will definitely be back.
If I had to look for a negative, it would be that it is located along a very narrow private road next to the Oberoi, so flagging a taxi is not possible. No big deal really - the reception call for one anyway. Other than that, a great location.
Can't wait to go back

It's not often you get to wonder if the paving stones outside your villa are slightly too close together for easy steps, but Kembali really is that close to perfection that there is nothing else to worry about.
The Kuta area is definitely on the touristy end of Bali, (but better than anything closer to the airport) and visitors want to be away from the main streets where the noise of the taxis and bars could be very disturbing. Kembali is therefore ideally located just a 10 minute stroll from the beach or the many restaurants but to be honest, you will barely bother as breakfast is prepared for you by your maid (don't miss the banana pancakes) and all the local restaurants will deliver quickly and cheaply.
The staff are always smiling and ridiculously helpful (even to the extent of my dialing reception rather than an outside line to get dinner delivered one night, the lady didn't explain my error, but simply wrote down my order and phoned it on through to the restaurant so I only realised my mistake when the receptionist strolled in with our dinner!)
The villa's themselves are idyllic, the pool was of a good size rather than just a frustrating plunge thing you won't bother to swim a length of and even the minibar was priced at just a small premium above the local supermarket meaning you didn't worry about grabbing something if you were too lazy to stroll out (but if you need shopping your maid will stock your fridge for you!) : in fact the whole stay from the price of the villa to the food in the local restaurants felt like pretty good value.
In short. Very very difficult to beat and we'd return to Kembali in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Any villa would be good. We stayed in Villa 1 (2 bed) and simply no complaints. Keep in mind, this i...

We have just returned from a week at Kembali Villas. The whole experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend them to travelers wanting to experience the best of Balinese decor and hospitality at a reasonable rate! The villas are beautifully designed for privacy with water features, spectacular indoor and outdoor living spaces, large comfortable bedrooms, clean and well equipped with air con. Well maintained pool with covered day bed. What is most special though is the level of excellent staffing. Nothing is too much trouble to organiz. We had our own villa staff who made breakfast every morning with fresh juices and choices of Indonesian or full English, we organised massages, beauty treatments and yoga to come to us - very reasonable prices, and the villa management organised transport and dinner bookings as required. Nothing was too much trouble! I would highly recommend the VIP transfer from the airport and a visit to The Potato Head Beach Club near by. The villas are not on the beach but very easy to get to the best shopping and eating places in Seminyak. They are private and patrolled by security so very safe. Thank you Kembali for an amazing holiday! Truly Bali Bliss!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Villa (2 adults/2 teenagers) for 7 nights. We had the most relaxing holiday. The villa was very comfortable, comfortable beds, swimming pool was large and the water temperature was perfect, loved the outdoor shower which was surounded by nature and exotic plants, loved having a shower in the rain too. The staff, especially Anna our maid were amazing. The staff moved around us in an unobtrusive manner doing their thing (making breakfast, cleaning pool and bedrooms) and were all so happy and genuinely caring people. Kembali Villas are close to everything in Seminyak. I highly recommend this property and we will be returning soon. Thank you Kembali for the best holiday destination. It was only 7 days but felt like longer truly relaxed.

Room Tip: All villas are truly luxurious.

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.
