Reviewed September 18, 2012

Just back from a great family holiday in Bali. Stayed at Villa Darma Bugis. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Very close to an amazing shopping area in Seminyak. The staff were very courteous and accommodating. Would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a family holiday.

Room Tip: All the rooms were very comfortable

We stayed in Villa Gembira and LOVED it! Don't be alarmed as you are driven down a long rough looking (even a little rubbish strewn about) lane to the Villa (3 groups of us arrived separately and were all nervous as we came down) because the Villa is spectacular!

The pool is large and beautiful! Water the perfect temperature! The grounds are spacious and the nicely maintained. The Bedrooms were lovely and a good size. Nice outdoor bathrooms. (Only complaint would be that the outdoor part looks a little run down and walls need a repaint. No big deal though and still lovely) Two bedrooms with Queen/King? Beds in the two guest houses have baths and showers. Two bedrooms beside dining/living area have twin beds and just a shower.

The location is great! Easy 10 min walk to beach. Ku de Ta probably only 15 min walk away on beach. Plenty of restaurants close by. Bintang Supermarket easy 10 min max walk away. Eat Street an easy 25? min walk away, or very short, cheap taxi ride.

Staff were absolutely lovely! American Breakfast is basic (eggs, bacon, sausage, toast and fruit) but tasty enough. Indonesian breakfast of Nasi Goreng or Mei Goreng with Fried Egg on top was super yummy! Great having a water cooler!

Couple of minor things to be aware of was that only one room had a blow dryer, and speakers on sound system are blown. Thankfully I am lucky enough to have a Bose Portable dock/speaker system that I brought with me, so I was fine.

Would recommend Anomali or Corner Store on Eat Street for amazing coffee of very high international standard. Lacalaca is a FANTASTIC fun, yummy mexican restaurant to go to.

Totally recommmend this villa to stay at. The pool is truly spectacular, grounds amazing and location excellent! Price is very good too!

There was a large group of us, split across two villas to cater for those with/without children and I think it was perfect for both groups.
Accommodation is lovely, outside bathrooms - oddly, not all had showers, some had baths but minor quibble - and large beds. Missing from our villa were the promised hairdryers but then I didn't follow-up with the staff to replace.
The breakfast was super and at a time of our choosing. Good coffee! They facilitated any request, we managed to have massages in the villas every day, grocery shopping done & daily housekeeping. Pool was lovely and deep, a little cold but c'mon, you can't ask them to heat a pool in Bali! There was a small library of books to while away the time, tvs, ipod decks etc. Within walking distance of amenities and easy to get a cab to/from.

Only other point was that one night we were disturbed by motorbikes tearing up and down the road outside the villas.
Would definitely stay again.

This place is absolutely amazing! Walk through the impressive front entrance to reveal your own little slice of heaven. Immaculate gardens line a giant 15m infinity edge pool. There's a Bale with day bed: it's huge. The 3 large separate bedrooms each have a queen-size, 4 poster mosquito netted bed, air con and ceiling fans, electronic safe; and roomy garden ensuite. There's 3 cable TVs and DVD players; a spacious open plan living/kitchen area; free wi-fi throughout… the list goes on.

The location is in close proximity to shops, bars, restaurants, and the beach, which are all within easy access down one of the many secluded laneways. The villa itself is very quiet and feels like a retreat: you could forget you're in the middle of Seminyak. The complete kitchen with gas stove and double door fridge provides all the space and amenities should you need to cook, or have the staff whip something up for you. Welcome drinks and cool towels were provided on arrival as well as breakfast the next morning.

The staff are inviting, attentive and professional. They're available 24hrs a day and always with a smile.
We got to know them quite well. On a couple of nights we even popped down to have a beer with the security guards! A small army of workers comes in every morning to clean and also maintain the garden, which is very well maintained and looks stunning. After all Villa Kebun is the 'Garden Villa'.

It's hard to fault our stay: we'll definitely be back.

Myself and 2 mates stayed at Villa Kebun operated by Villa Bugis for 1 week and were blown away by every aspect of the villa.

The villa itself is incredibly opulent. Upon opening the door you are immediately greeted by a giant blue swimming pool; the size of your regular hotel pool. There is a huge open entertaining/dining/kitchen area to relax in, and the 3 separate large bedrooms each with a queen size bed are just amazing. Each bedroom comes with an adjoining private bathroom where you feel as if you are showering in a tropical rainforest - absolute heaven on earth. There is a relaxing daybed covered by a gazebo right next to the pool - the perfect spot to share a late afternoon bintang in serene surroundings. At night the villa lights up to reveal a whole new dimension.

The villa is quiet 24 hours a day and it is a short walk to everything you need, like the bintang supermarket, shopping strips, the beach and multiple delicious restaurants.

The staff of Villa Bugis are impeccable. They are extremely polite and will cater to your needs. They clean the villa every morning and will do your shopping for a very small fee. The security guards are very friendly and ensure you feel secure at all times in your villa.

Villa Kebun is definitely THE place to relax when you come to Bali. I couldn't recommend it highly enough and will certainly be back! Pictures do not do this place justice, it has to be seen to be believed.

I stayed at Villa Bugis for a week with 4 friends and it was, without question, amazing!!!

My only complaint was that on the last day when we had packed up and got ready to leave, I returned home only to realise my favourite bottle of perfume had been stolen!!

I did not expect this to happen in such a luxurious establishment.

Very disappointing :(

Dear Josey,
Warmest greeting from Villa Bugis
Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you have enjoyed your holiday a year ago with us.

Regarding your lost item, We are very sorry for the inconvenience when you last stay with us as your story. Exactly, A year ago at the time you checked out from our villa, We have checked there and nothing left found. And when you sent email to us that you lost your perfume, We was surprised and then immediately We do our best to look for it in the entire villa but unfortunately We could not find it,

We could not judge anyone stealing without any proof. If only you realize that your perfume was gone while you are still in the villa, We would do our best to do investigation even We would be happy to assist you to report to the police.

We also always advise to all of our guest to read our term and conditions that you could find it in ( http://www.villabugis.com/terms-conditions ) to have a travel insurance for unlikely event of an illness, accident, loss of personal items and other travel contingencies during the travel in Bali.

For loss of personal items most insurance policies require police report that police come to the villa and meet you in person. All guest is advised to keep all personal items inside locked rooms when they are not in the villa and no valuable items should be left in the open areas of the villa.

Once again, We are very sorry for any inconvenience that was caused by this

We do look forward to welcoming your friends and hopefully yourself again in the near future.

Best Regards

Adi Krisnayana
General Manager

7 desperate Housewives away for a 5 day break in June were totally relaxed and rejuvenated after a fabulous stay at Villa Darma. The space around the villa and separation between bedrooms is amazing. Plenty of sun on the pool, but enough shady spots for afternoon naps and quiet times reading books.The gardens are simple and not too much luscious vegetation, so definitely no mozzie problem. Staff were beautiful and efficient, but never in our way. We loved dealing with this company as they promptly replied to emails and were true to their word.
We have already booked more villas with Villa Bugis for our October holiday, and as returning customers have been treated very well with additional discount!
Beautiful Putu looked after us so well, we felt like she was family. Our breakfast was cooked on time each morning and although not an amazing hotel buffet selection, it was fresh and adequate. Putu's Nasi Goreng was my fave.
I highly recommend Villas for Girl's trips, we spent so much time hanging out together, didn't have to go wandering around a massive hotel to find each other. Ordering lunch from all the amazing restaurants nearby (Queen's Tandoor-yum) was so easy and next time we will have a dinner cooked for us in the villa.
The photos on the Bugis website are absolutely accurate, but Villa Darma still took our breath away when the gate first opened. Our pool was huge, we did laps in the morning. These Villas are great value for money and they have a charming Bali feel to them.

Room Tip: We loved the Drupadi St location as there was a shortcut to Jl Seminyak, and we could walk to Eat St...
