We got this accommodation on a Scoop-On deal, 5 nights for $300AUD.... I emailed the villa's to confirm dates for the booking, after a few emails back and forth, this was all sorted within a week.
Included in our price were airport transfers, we provided our flight details and this was all sorted for us as well, the driver collected us from the airport, the villa's are about a half hour drive from Denpasaar airport.
The Villas: Simple, modern furniture throughout... Downstairs there is a basic kitchen, dining area, couch and television, and a toilet - upstairs are the bedrooms with ensuites, lockbox available in the wardrobe. Bed was quite comfortable, rooms are decent sizes. Villa was reasonably clean upon entry, after the first day we started to notice a lot of mosquitos and ants, maybe they should look at spraying the venue more frequently. The Villa is cooled by two split system air cons, one in the lounge area, and one in the bedroom. A few days the housekeeping staff switched the units off whilst we were out, this was not very pleasant to come home to.
Each Villa has a small plunge pool, which was very nice. The housekeeping staff were a little inconsistent with replacing the pool towels though. This accommodation is very quiet, and private which is nice!
The Food: We ordered room service for dinner on our first night, we had around 5 dishes to share, all were cooked very well and very reasonably priced! The unfortunate thing is that we placed our order, and then received about three phonecalls advising that they had sold out of several items, and we were required to make other selections. Breakfast selections in the restaurant were fine, different things each day, everything was cooked well and very tasty.
The Staff: Everyone was super friendly, and very accommodating. If you bring to their attention short falls, they are more than happy to rectify the situation and help out. A nice cool welcome drink upon arrival, we had to wait about 10mins for our room to be ready, and the girls at Reception were very chatty and apologetic. Checking out did take a little bit of time, as they inspect the room before finalising your bill, make sure you leave time for that before you are transferred to the airport!
Location: these villas are located right behind Kerokoban prison, but you wouldn't know any different, there are some nice little grocery stores within walking distance of the vilas too which is convenient. To get to Kuta from this hotel can take anywhere between 10 and 30mins, dependent on traffic, so can cost between 50-80k each way.... There are free shuttles from the hotel into three locations within Seminyak.
Overall, it was nice affordable accommodation. But if you want some entertainment, it can be expensive taking taxi's out and about from here. If you want a private pool with little social reaction, and can live off their delicious room service menu, I would come back again. Will keep this place in mind, but would probably go for somewhere more social next trip.
