Excellent customer service

Posted Apr 23, 2017
Good location 10 mins walk from beach. Staff always know your name and are very accomodating. Complimentary car to local area. Villa rooms are excellent with a large pool. Overall a very pleasant and great experience. Recommend to couples.

Nice location but not 5*

Posted Apr 17, 2017
The hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel was in a central location. It's a cute boutique hotel if you are looking for a private villa and pool at a more reasonable rate. The pool and spa were very nice but there are some downsides that make it different from more luxurious hotels that I have stayed at in Bali: -bath towels were very worn and need to be replaced. -flip flops available in the room were very worn as well to the point that we didn't feel it would be sanitary to wear them. -the mattress wasn't that comfortable. -the private villa was very simple in terms of design and less ornate/ artistic than other hotels. -the breakfast is à la carte and not buffet, and they are quite restrictive of what we are allowed to order and still be considered inclusive to what we paid for. Portions were also very small. But if these details don't matter to you, the hotel is a good value for money at half the price of other private villa and pool rooms. The staff are generally very friendly and want to always help the guests. There are taxis on sight whenever you need transportation - but I recommend you bargain because the hotel over-charges.

Wonderful Staff and Peaceful Location

Posted Feb 23, 2017
Location: If you want good food in Bali, Seminyak is the right area to be!
The staff is incredibly helpful and accommodating. They were always ready to help book trips and restaurants. The shuttle bus to the main street is a very big plus as the walk out takes about 10-15 minutes depending on traveling north or south of the hotel. Cabbing back is easy. The villas are located in a very nice compound with its own security entrance. Unlike so of the other villas which opens onto the street. The spa is small but well staffed. The price is comparable to the big free standing spa complexes. Which makes it altogether easier than going out for spa services.

Amazing Stay

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Pros: The staff, the Villa & the different types of food - Breakfast was truly delicious ( try the fresh strawberry juice)
Cons: Possibly providing the latest version of the Mac
Location: Beach isn't too far, lots of water sports to do there like jet skis, snorkeling, fishing trips, para- sailing, loads of restaurants close by.
When we first got to the reception we had a great introduction to what the Villa could offer, what our room would be like, complimentary massage & where the best spots to do activities. The staff went the extra mile to making sure you had the experience & catering for our dietary needs. Being on our honeymoon, they would leave a special mark behind everyday ie providing exotic food one day, laying petals on the floor/bed. Being a stone's throw away from the beach and the high street was really convenient while being tucked away to provide that peace.

Convenient to Seminyak nightlife & Nice Room.

Posted Dec 2, 2016 on Hotels
The location was pretty good to get to nearby Bars and Restaurants in Seminyak. The room itself was nice, though needed a little bit of work in a few places. For example, the big windows that open up are great, but they take more effort to open than they should as the tracks are worn a little. The pool is nice, but doesn't really get any sun - need to sit on the loungers to get the sun.

Great getaway

Posted Nov 21, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Private pool and friendly staff
Cons: Some plates and a dish cloth in kitchen so you could clean up if you spilt something.
Location: Sunset at Legian Kuta..Very close to hotel We did a cooking class with the hotel for something different.
Had no idea what to expect.If you are looking for a friendly but relaxed holiday this is the place to go.Staff greeted us with a smile every day at breakfast overlooking the pool and tried there best to give us what ever we asked for .Rooms are clean and relaxing if that is what you want how ever if you wanted to go out the staff would drive you to where you wanted to go around town and you could walk back or catch a taxi.What I would have liked to have seen is a list of what other people had enjoyed around the area as we went to a couple of places that if we had of known what they were like we would not have bothered. What you look up on your phone is not always right.Clean , tidy relaxed not perfect but very proud of their hotel.

Comfortable Villas

Posted Nov 1, 2016
This villa is quite close to everything with free shuttle to most places like jimbaran seafood strip or Seminyak square for example. It's really pretty especially at night time and the services are great. Tip: this hotel offer tours but it is cheaper to book a private driver for a whole day. Otherwise if you want to be safe then you can also pay a little extra for the super friendly hotel staffs to take you around. We did this because we were two girls who had bad experiences in Asia before and their services was great.
