“A great find!”
Reviewed February 18, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

After staying here for a few days there is no where else i could possibly think of staying next time i arrive in Bali. The villa was amazing, from the swimming pool (which got a good work out) to the bedrooms and the fantastic little courtyard. I recommend that you experience it yourself. Staff were wonderful and just being so close to everything without the busy noise just made it much better. The only thing was that some taxi drivers weren't sure of the location, but once you told them behind waterbom and next to the best western, it clicked. Look forward to staying again!

“Great solution for a combined family group of 7”
Reviewed February 5, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Pondok Putu for 4 nights during Jan11. Our group consisted of 2 families (4 adults and 3 boys aged 11-15) and the villa easily accommodated all of us comfortably. There is one queen size bedroom downstairs and everyone else slept upstairs. As a result the upstairs bathroom is very large and nicely presented but we were surprised to find the downstairs bathroom so small (standing room only) - luckily only 2 people really needed to use this one. That aside, the villa felt very spacious and was a welcomed retreat after a busy day exploring Kuta.
We really appreciated the fact that we were welcome to use the swimming pool at the Best Western Hotel (which is right next door) as long as we purchased drink/food, as this pool is great (3M deep at one point!). We did this on several occasions especially as the pool at the villa is quite small - certainly not big enough for 3 boys anyway!
We did have some problems with the electricity going off one night and in the morning we told the staff at the main office who then organised for an electrician to come. By the time we came home from Waterbom Park everything was working again.
Overall the villa represented excellent value for money for the number of people in our group and the location is great.

“Nice place a bit far from the beach in very hot weather.”
Reviewed October 31, 2010 for a stay in October 2010

Six of us stayed here for 3 days in October. The person we dealt with face-to-face spoke almost no English but he was obliging and did sort out some minor difficulties by ringing the guy whom we understood took care of things for the owner.
The villa is excellent at first glance. Lovely furniture and layout. For our stay the floors were a bit gritty underfoot and the kitchen cabinets needed a good sort out. Recyclable bottles and cans were stacked in the sideway; otherwise the tiny garden and small pool were well cared for.
The fourth bedroom with 2 singles is open to the upstairs foyer and stairwell, with no doors so the aircon cannot be contained. An opaque window in the stairwell leaks artificial light at night, meaning this space cannot be darkened if that is your sleeping preference.
It was unseasonally hot in October so although the living room doors folded back, we wished the room had aircon. Also unseasonally wet - getting to Kartika Plaza via the road was a bit long and hairy.
Security was the main concern.
We had to insist on getting a second set of keys - The minimum I would have thought necessary for 6 guests.
The safe was accessed using a 'key' - probably the master key. It didn't come out without a lot of jiggling, even for the person demonstrating it. I was concerned that at the most inopportune time, they key would remain stuck with our passports and money inside!Our waning confidence in the system was completely dashed when a neighbouring holiday maker asked to borrow our front door key as some of the units are keyed alike. Similar problem - not enough keys for a group. Our key didn't fit. The neighbour warned us not to use the safe as he'd had 1500000 rupiah stolen from inside their safe the day before.
A hotel safe cannot be accessed by staff except at a certain level - we had no confidence in the using the safe in this unit.

Management Response
Oct 31, 2010
Kuta Royal Villas are owned and operated by independent owners, so keys are unique to each villa so keys from one villa will not fit another, and staff at each villa is employed independently no staff is shared between villas, it is not a hotel.
The theft from a safe in another villa has nothing to do with this villa.
There was a minor malfunction of the safe which should have been repaired immediately, and you should not have been given the master key,but the staff were trying to please you, I apologize for this oversight.
