We are on our last day of staying at Villa Gading in Seminyak and would recommend the villa overall, except for a few management and minor issues.
The villa is lovely and probably a 4 star villa but there are plumbing issues, the balcony upstairs leads directly to the downstairs where your lounge/dining/kitchen is; making it not really enclosed - it helps to keep the air conditioning working well but unfortunately it does not protect you from the millions of mosquitos living in the rice fields beyond your back fence!
The alley way that it is located on is also of a concern as it is very dark at night and not paved therefore muddy in parts where there are local homes located with many loud barking dogs. To save this issue, there is a side gate which you can unlock and walk on a narrow rice field ledge to get to a normal road but it is also dark at night and you will need a torch (one of which is located in the villa).
The management try their best but language barriers are an issue when trying to get an answer for some things - WIFI did not work for 4 days; shower flooding; etc. and overall they are a little rigid with rules so it was not the best experience with management. The house staff were lovely and did try their best also.
