My family and I (7 adults and 3 kids) stayed at the Villa Menari for 10 nights. We are so glad we decided to stay there. The staff, Putu and Co were incredible. The service provided was A+. Better than most 5 * resorts.
The moment we arrived, we were greeted by Putu, who was lovely and knowledgeable, an amazing resource. Nothing was a hassle. From booking massages and organising dinner reservations, shopping for drinks and food to stock up our fridge in the main area, as well as recommending day trips and driving us literally everywhere.
The villa is around 15 mins from Seminyak, longer with traffic. However, it wasn't an issue having 2 drivers at our disposal. All we had to pay for was petrol which wasn't expensive.
The food was so good. Breakfast was included, not too much of a selection but very tasty. A chef is also available for lunch and dinner. Most of the meals were delicious (chicken satay, beef rendang, BBQ banquet, lasagne, Vietnamese rice paper rolls- to name a few!) and so cheap. There isn't a lot near by but one restaurant to mention was La Cassetta. Amazing Italian food! We ended up going twice!
The villas were comfortable and huge. We were able to configure the rooms to our needs. The pool was spectacular and an area we spent a lot of time.
Thanks for a wonderful stay! We will be back!

We recently stayed at Villa Menari as a family for 5 nights. The villa was amazing, we couldn't have asked for anything better! The kids thought we were in our own resort, they couldn't get over the fantastic rooms, pool and surrounds. Putu, Weedie & all staff are some of the best people I have met in Bali.

Nothing was too much trouble and Putu took us on some great day trips, recommended really great restaurants and made our entire stay truly memorable.

We will be back! Love Michelle, Nicholas, Gwen, Andrew, Leanne, Payton, Casey and your little mate Lucas.

We had a great stay at Villa Menari. Michael was very easy to deal with which made booking easy.Putu is fantastic he ad great suggestins of places to go and many of them he negotiated better rates than we could have got.
Them Villas are lovely and extremley clean.The pool is lovely and its great being able to take your own alcohol.There is a fantastic pavilion for dining and socialising.
The meals were good,Bali doesnt cater very well for Celiac/glute n free so if this is an issue i would suggest taking some supplies especially gf bread with you.
The villas are a little further out of Seminyak than we realised when booking there is no restaurants in walking distance but you do have the drivers.
Places we enjoyed
Ubud monkey forrest
Ubud art markets--Beter quality than Seminyak markets
Village bike tour was great --but the food at the owners house not so good
Bali spa by Seminyak beach was very clea and great service
Domicil home wares--love that shop
There were great restaurants by the Seminyak beach our favourite restaurants were Potatoe head club and la Sicilia restaurant

We loved our stay.Putu and the staff were amazing nothing was a problem
Thanks

Our family stayed here for a week over Easter. From making the reservation with Michael, to Putu and the staff's flawless service and saying goodbye everything was perfect.

I personally think the pictures don't do the villa itself justice - it was even larger than I expected. Iluy's cooking was great, especially the Mei Goreng (best in bali!). Putu and Nyoman went out of their way to drive us to some rather unusual locations too and could not have been more helpful.

The best villa I've stayed in in Bali; highly recommended.

Last Family Holiday!!

2 Adults and 6 kids (22,20,20,16,7,3)
6 nights

4 Villa
1 x 2 storey, 2 bed (sleeps 4, 2 x )
1 x single storey, 2 bed (sleeps 5, 1 x )
2x single bedroom villas (queen bed in each, )
I am sure the configuration can be adjusted to suit.
Media Room
Bar Room
Open plan sitting and dining area with sep. bathroom.

We booked at Villa Menari because of its inclusions and the reviews.

I wish we could have stayed longer.

Booking Process:
Dealing with Michael was easy, he was professional, prompt, informative and always helpful. He helped us feel at ease and comfortable with our first trip to Bali.
This set the tone and high standard for the rest of our planning and our time at Villa Menari.

Arrival:
We were met at the airport by Putu and Nyoman. Smiles and handshakes all round!!

We had 2 vehicles and drivers at our disposal for the week. We could not be happier with either. Even with slight language barriers (nothing a little patience and understanding couldn't fix), our transport requirements were always met.
All we had to pay for was petrol.

Putu - the Villa manager was fabulous. Accommodating and always available to assist us if we needed him.

Meals:
We had breakfast included in our booking package from a set menu that consisted of western and Asian options. Meals are prepared by the talented villa chef Iluh and her staff...
You can arrange to have lunch and dinner prepared at the villa for an additional cost. Avg $10-15 each. Again from a set menu, that was wonderfully varied and catered for most. You can also arrange "special" meals, we had a Balinese Feast one night that cost on avg. $12 per head.
The food was delicious.

Maintenance:
The villa grounds were beautifully maintained. The villas always spotless. Given the environment you can't help the insects, but they accommodate each bedroom with the electric mozzy repellent, each bed has a mosquito canopy, each room has air conditioning.
One of the villas had an ant problem in its bathroom, but nothing major.
And given the environment, humidity, lush grounds...you'd have to expect some of that.
The pool spectacular. The staff wonderful and friendly. They were always there but you didn't know it.

I can not recommend Villa Menari highly enough.
We will certainly be visiting again.
