“Villa 'Mimpi'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

We arrived to Vila Mimpi on 18th October 2013 unbeknowns to us after booking a 2 bedroon Villa in Legian called 'Beautiful Bali Villa's. We booked and paid for this back at the beginning of July, turned up after a day of travelling with the kids (5 and 3years) only to find out our original Villa had been double booked and in typical Bali fashion no one having the decency to contact us at any stage.

We were then moved to Villa Bugis and staying in Villa Mimpi. Im going to be honest - had we have wanted to spend the first week of our holiday in Seminyak we would have booked there. We subsequently had booked a second week in a resort in Seminyak which became a little redundant.

After the train-wreck that was the beginning of our holiday we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Villa Mimpi. It was 3 bedrooms, the pool and the yard were amazing for kids, lots of space, always clean, the breakfasts were faultless and the staff friendly. I would thoroughly recommend this Villa for families and we have no complaints.

Things we didnt like- the location. The gang is located right next to Bintang supermarket which is great - its about a 10 minute walk - however its very narrow and most taxi drivers wont drive down there due to he width and the speedhumps. No problems if you are able to walk but completely sucks if you have sleeping kids on the way home from dinner. The gang itself was very very dark at night. i wouldnt walk down it alone - there was a lot of construction going on in nearby villa's and whilst the noise was never a problem big worksites full of builders late at night in the dark just didnt feel entirely safe. Day time - no problems. Walking with hubby - no problems. The dogs were a real problem - mostly at night too. On the corner rounding towards the villa there were about 6-7 angry dogs on any given night. Our kids were completely petrified when one chased us for no reason - needless to say nothing a brick didnt sort out (and no we are not advocates of hurting animals nor bogans).

The beach was absolutely not a 5 minute walk - more like 15, but those few things aside which were not in control of the Villa it was great.

Accommodation, location and staff we FANTASTIC! I have been to Bali three times now and this is the best accommodation I have come across! Pool and gardens were amazing! Nice and private with a very peaceful feeling. It is located close to the beach and easily accommodates four couples, a family or group! I cannot recommend Villa Sayang highly enough.

We stayed in villa Intan and we loved it! The villa itself is beautiful and has all the desirable facilities (infinity pool, outdoor bathrooms, wifi, air-conditioning etc.). Furthermore the villa is located at a quiet place and very near to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay on Bali and recommend everyone to visit Bali and stay in villa Intan.

We were a party of 13, one family of 4 in Villa Indi, our party of 6 adults and 2 children were in Villa Antan. Fabulous spacious bedrooms, amazing sparkling pools comprising 2ft baby pool and 6ft deep second pool. Exceptionally well appointed kitchen, dining area and relaxing TV area. Plus a second area off main room for children to watch their DVD's. BBQ area was to side of main kitchen room, the picture was complete with a HUGE day bed near pool, and various small day beds and shades around pool.
The staff couldn't be more friendly in organising a birthday buffet complete with cake, cooking amazing breakfasts every morning and organising transport for us to visit the rest of the island.
All areas were kept spotlessly clean.

Room Tip: Room on the Northern side is the largest!

We stayed at Villa Saphir, one of the Villa Bugis villas on Jl Drupadi for 2 weeks in October. Absolutely fantastic!! Our group comprised 2 families (one of four, one of five). The villa is gorgeous, spacious and well maintained. Staff were friendly, inobtrusive and very keen to be of assistance, especially Nyoman and Koman. I asked Nyoman where I could buy glasses similar to the ones in our villa, and lo and behold he took one with him and drove all the way to Denpasar on his day off looking for them for me!! The villa was really well stocked with all supplies such as cutlery, crockery etc which is something that is usually a bit lacking in villas. Location was perfect as we could cut through the rice paddy at the end of the lane to get to Dyana Pura for massages, meals, shopping etc. There is a circle K at the other end of the lane too. We arranged for some supplies to be waiting for us on arrival, which the staff were very happy to do- icy cold Bintang! Every arvo the staff would come to light mosquito coils for us. There are numerous restaurants which deliver to the villas if you want to eat in, for the princely sum of $1! Our pool was huge. It is worth noting that all the pools are slightly different- we had friends staying next door in Villa Vaara and also in Villa Ke Bali in the same laneway. Only the taller teenagers in our group could touch the bottom of our pool- great for diving, and ours had a little alcove which was shaded and shallow- good for kids with ear infections or sunburn! Villa Vaara's and Ke Bali's were graduated in depth. All great but I think for little ones our pool may have been too deep. Perfect for us though! Really we just cannot fault any of these three villas- everyone had a ball and we would definitely recommend them- we aim to return to our beloved Villa Saphir next year! You can cut through a skinny little gang at the top of the lane to walk to Jl Legian, and can walk to Oberoi St too. We adopt a mindset when we go to Bali that there will be construction, a few dogs barking, and roosters crowing wherever you go. As always, we heard all of these things at times but they didn't bother us at all. It is not as though you have to get up early to go to work, and it is easy to just view these as part of Bali's charm. Thank you to the wonderful staff and we hope to see you again next year!!

Room Tip: All were great and slightly different, eg pool size/ depth, amount of grass, bath etc. The villas do...

Villa Sayang is a wonderful villa in a quiet,private area of Seminyak,which is a stones throw from everything.Just a short stroll to the beach,shops and restaurants.
The design and layout of this Villa is so well done, that it's such an easy place to chill out and do nothing if that's what you need.
The staff are fabulous and are always there to assist ,whether it be finding transport, helping with transfers, preparing breakfast at the villa, you name it , they'll do what ever they can and always with a huge smile .
Security at the Villa is great and the rates represent exceptional value.
This is my second time at the Villa Sayang and I can't wait to get back there again.

We are just back from another stay at one of the Bugis villas in our favourite location, Drupadi St.
This is a fabulous location with shortcuts back to Dynana Pura and Raya Seminyak, and its also close to Oberoi Rd. All the villas in this lane are set on generous blocks of land so if you are travelling with children there is plenty of space for the kids to play and run around.
As usual the staff were amazing, even surprising one of my sons with a birthday cake and song on his special day.
The email communication is always efficient and Wiwik is fantastic to book with. These villas have a lovely Balinese feel to them and the pools receive plenty of sun.
Thankyou Bugis staff, we will back very soon!

Room Tip: Drupadi locatin may be bit further from the beach but very close to great eating and shopping.
