Recently travelled with a group of 6 and stayed in the Execuitve Residence. The villa was perfect for what we needed. It was clean, spacious, nicely decorated and the staff could not be more friendly or helpful! The villa itself was located more down in an alley which was a little harder to describe to taxi drivers, but walking in from the main road was not far and did not feel unsafe and it was however pretty quiet in its location there. The rooms were all nice, the beds were comfy, cleaners came once a day, couldnt really ask for anything more from our stay. We ordered room service a few times which was nice. There is an awesome little cafe type thing not far from the villa called Grocer and Grind.. yummo!! We would definetly stay at Cicada again and would recommend to anyone. Thanks to all the staff who went out of their way to accomodate us, you made our trip a breeze!

We were a group of 6 staying in the Executive 3bdr private villa. It was just perfect. More than enough space for the 6 of us between the indoor dining area and lounge room, outdoor dining area at the kitchen and the deck chairs by the pool. Not to mention the second lounge area off the 1st bedroom. The staff were wonderful making up our beds, replacing towels and generally tidiying up after us each day. Complimentary bottled water, mosquito coils and bug spray were greatly appreciated.
The pool and outdoor area were perfect for relaxing in and I spent a good few hours just reading on the deck chairs in the peace of the whole place.

Recently stayed in the grand residence with my husband, brother and 18 month old. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the grand residence. It was so massive and very private. Great proximity to eat street and the beach was within walking distance too. Staff serviced the villa every afternoon and were so lovely. Was very baby friendly as we could lock off the pool and a complimentary cot and high chair was provided. Was very hard to find such a baby friendly environment in many other villas in seminyak. Thank you so much cicada. We had a lovely time!! We hope to be back someday soon.

My husband and I have travelled extensively and were very happy with the accomodation and quality of rooms at Cicada. Having been absolutely spoit in Ubud (where we stayed at the Komaneka at Bisma) it was always going to be hard for this hotel to live up to those standards. However, we were pleasantly surprised once we arrived and, apart from a few minor areas for improvement, rate it very highly.

Positives are -
* Great location. Walking distance to the best restaurants, spas, beach and shops.
* Huge rooms. We stayed in a one bedroom suite and the lounge room, bed room and bathroom were all enormous.
* Great pool.
* Quality complimentary breakfast with large selection of food.

Areas for improvement (if I had to be picky)-
* The villas are approximately five years old and are showing their age in a couple of minor areas.
* The private pools in the one bedrooms villas are small (plunge pool really). However, this is not so much of an issue as the main property pool is lovely.
* Villas that back on to the road (as ours did) can be noisy at night. This would be a problem for light sleepers.

Room Tip: I would suggest requesting a room away from the road, particularly if you are a light sleeper.

Thank you very much for your recent review.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and i wish to thank you for your feedback regarding our property.
This assists us in areas we have possibility over looked or is already scheduled for maintenance.

The initial 6 structures were built in 2007.

All have in fact been refurbished since structurally and its furniture is all new however there are 6 more recent structures that were only completed last year and are brand new.

i would be grateful in order to ensure that our service and facilities remain of a 5 star standard as has been the case since we opened, if you have a chance to email the hotel with the areas of improvement you deem as upgrading. This would help us should we have overlooked something not obvious.

Many thanks again for your review and we look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you back to Cicada.

The Cicada is a truly amazing place to stay. It is immaculate - clean, well designed, extremely well maintained (staff told me the place was about 5 years old but had been refurbished but to me it looked no more than 1 year old), the staff were friendly, sweet, unobtrusive and always helpful.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa and loved it. It felt nestled away and private, even though the entrance was by the main pool. Didn't use our plunge pool much but it was very nice when we did. The place was pretty empty throughout the day so I indulged in some me time and felt like I had the pool to myself for the whole time! Great 25m infinity pool - one you can actually do laps in.

Next year, we will come back and bring friends. The staff gave us a little tour of the 3-bedroom villa as it was un-occupied and I am really looking forward to claiming the master bedroom! Massive. All the rooms were elegant with unique outdoor bathrooms. I wish I could have transported the whole lot back to Australia with me.

Location is great - close walk to bars, shops and cafes, as well as Petitingret Beach. Breakfast was delicious (I had the tomato, avocado, coriander bruschetta which had a surprise with green olive and hint of chilli which made it soooo tasty). Seafood pizza we had for lunch was great, but fishcakes were a little dry - probably the only small thing I wouldn't rate 5 stars out of our amazing experience. There are many places to eat out nearby so we preferred to eat out rather than order in, as there was more variety around.

I can't recommend this place enough! I tried to take photos but they just didn't capture what a wonderful place this was!

Just had a satisfying 3 nights stay at Cicada. I must say I am quite happy with the whole experience being my first visit to Bali for leisure.

It started with a thought to pamper my partner with a relaxing trip as she had been tiring herself out last few months. So thought a bali experience might help her recharge. So we went online and booked ourselves a One Bedroom Villa directly with Cicada. The confirmation came back soon after. We were ready!

Soon we arrived at Cicada. The dirt road leading to the entrance of the villa got us worry for a while but as we checked in, we were wowed by the serenity of the place. Tucked in a cosy neighbourhood off the main road, Cicada offers a quiet and relaxing sanctuary to the hustle and bustle of the daily activities (the constant beeps of taxis signalling for customers for one).

Our unit was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The staff and security were friendly and always ready to attend to your requests and needs. Breakfast was a nice touch as it was served in the room by the staff every morning. Nothing fancy but tasty. Both partner and I felt right at home. We spent the next 4 days totally immersing ourselves to the finest Bali has to offer. Couldn't ask for more.

Pluses
Great Staff - They are humble and very attentive to your requests. No pushy attitude which i like. For instance, they don't "push" you to take up their appointed transport services. Instead they offer you choices and explain to you the costs for each of the alternatives and leave it to you to decide. Which was the case when we were looking for transport back to the airport on the last day of stay.

Tipping - They have a good policy that all tips are preferably given upon checking out. These were collected and distributed evenly to all staff working there. I think it is a fair and responsible way to reward the staff, especially those working behind the scene. Kudos to the management!

Facilities - Evidently they don't cut corners and had the place very well maintained. A big plus!

For improvement
Frankly I find very little to fault on Cicada so i like to describe the next few comments as areas for improvement.

Design of the shower room and the toilet. The open concept does fits well with the overall design but can be hard for some to accept. At night, it gets kinda creepy when you're doing your thing or showering knowing you are fully exposed to the open backyard and a scalable wall.

Plunge pool - very little usage as it never get the sun. We tried it one late afternoon and it was freezing! The general pool will be nicer for a dip and a swim. So the novelty for a private pool wears off.

All in all, Cicada has become my benchmark for choice of stay in Bali. Well done!

Just returned from a three night stay at Cicada. From check in to check out this place was fantastic. The staff are so welcoming, warm, friendly and helpful that it makes your stay at Cicada feel very exclusive. A la carte breakfast is delivered by your Butler each morning and is laid out in such a manner that it looks almost too nice to disturb. We also indulged in room service one night and the food was tasty and delivered with the same care as breakfast.

The hotel is located in a quiet part of Seminyak with lots of restaurants and shops within an easy walking distance. If you don't feel like walking you can easily take advantage of the very cheap metered taxis which are everywhere. The main shopping district of Kuta is only a 20 minute taxi ride away.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we are already planning our next visit. Keep up the great work Cicada, you helped us to have a very memorable time in Bali.

Room Tip: We booked a garden studio with private plunge pool. The bed was a little firm but this is the usual...
