“Villa Gembira”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Great location - short walk from villa to a main street with shops, food, supermarket, money exchange etc.
Very friendly staff who were available to help at any hour of the day.
The Villa itself was beautiful! Very spacious and clean. The pool was great and the rooms were kept immaculate.
Would definitely stay again!

We, 6 friends in their late 40 to 50s and 2 teenage boys stayed here for 5 days recently.
This villa is everything and more from the photos you see. The staff are amazing, loved having breakfast cooked for us every morning, or though portions size could have been bigger and they seem to get smaller each day we were there. special mention to Ketut for organising all our transport needs and we need it often.
Loved the size of the bedrooms and the garden bathrooms. Rooms could use a bit of maintenance, Aircon did work but very slow. Some doors were hard to slide across.
Love the get together area near the outside bar. Be careful lots and lots of mozzies. Make sure you take the rid.
Would l stay here again, yes yes l would if it was a bit closer to the main area of Seminyak. The drive way is a good kilometre long with some scary looking dogs so you can't really walk it, and then it would easy be another 10 minutes to the main eating area.
They should include a drive and car for the villa. For the teenage boys it's a no, too far from anything.
So if you only want to lay around in this beautiful villa and be spoilt by the staff, go for it, as it's perfect for this. But if you like to go out without having to get transport, it's a no.
So sadly l will look at one of their other villas that are closer to Seminyak Square.

Thank you for your kind review of Villa Saphir. We will feedback to our operations staff your comments regarding breakfast portion sizes, and to maintenance for some of the points you have raised...and apologize for any inconvenience caused there. In regards of the location, this one is a double edged sword - some people like to stay a little further away from all the hussle and bussle, for the peace and quiet, but still walkable to the noisier parts. Villa Saphir is located in a nicely secluded area, with a long drive to escape the motorcycle and car noise of Bali, so it's away from the noise but still close to the action. It is a bit far from Seminyak Square, but closer to the beach. It all depends on your needs - if you wish closer to Seminyak Square, we have other villa's closer to there, so we would recommend staying there next time, so we can give you an experience that better suits your requirements for your next holiday. Thanks again for your invaluable feedback...We can't wait to welcome you back!

We stayed here for 2.5 weeks and it was awesome! We stayed at Villa Mango. The pool got lots of sun all day and the grounds are quite large for our kids to run around. Kadek was only a phone call away and nothing was too much trouble. If we needed something it was only a phone call away and they came quickly. Another good thing about the Villa is that the security office is near the front door so we felt very safe the whole time as I was travelling with my wife and 2 young daughters.
We will definitely be staying again

Over all we where very happy with our stay at villa olive. Great for a family with small children. We had a pool fenc installed for added safety as we had 1 and 2 year old children. Central location in seminyak with an easy walk to shops and bintang supermarket. We also walked to the beach which was about a 10-15 minute walk away. Plenty of places nearby to get a good meal or you can order in. My only issue was with the house keeping which was done once daily but was only a minimal clean, my children had spilt a medicine bottle on the floor which we did our best to clean up, however a mop would have been needed to clean it properly. In the week we were there this was never cleaned up. I also requested a broom be left out three days in a row and this never happened either. Little kids make a mess and not being able to have a broom to sweep there mess up meant we had alot of ants coming in. I didnt expect the staff to have to constantly pick up after us thats why i asked to have access to the broom. Other than this minor complaint we had a very nice stay here and would come back. Thankyou.

Thank you for your great review for Villa Olive. Apologies for the minimal clean whilst you were there, it is always a fine balance for us between a thorough clean, and to not be interrupted too much by our staff cleaning. We have taken your comments on board, and will definitely pass on your recommendations and feedback to our operations staff, to try and get the balance right - thanks for that, we appreciate it! We are looking forward to having you back again soon for your next stay!

Wow, what a beautiful villa, with great staff. We had a wonderful 8 days in this gorgeous villa and our only regret is that it was not long enough !
This is our second trip with a Bugis Villa and we will be recommending them to our family and friends who plan to travel to Bali in the future.

All the staff for Villa Bugis's properties was really first rate. Kind and helpful and they really want to make sure you have a great stay. The property pictures and description don't do it justice, it's really so beautiful and serene - but less than a 5 minute walk to a major grocery store and all the action on the main street in Seminyak. Our booking came with daily breakfast (delicious) and the villa was cleaned daily - they even arranged for massage and pedicures on site - we felt so pampered. 4 Master Suites with air conditioning, a TV room, plenty of outdoor lounge space, the pool was very large and the grounds and sculptures were beautiful. If you're headed to Bali, with a group or large family, this is an excellent choice.

We had a wonderful holiday in Kupu Kupu. Great location - 1 minute walk to Oberoi Street. Staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much for them. Would just suggest that the lane way is lit at night. The pavement is uneven and very dark. Another improvement would be a bigger refrigerator. But overall fantastic - we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Great location - but the lane way needs lights. It is very dark with lots of unevenness. Also a bigg...
