We stayed for 7 nights. Firstly staff make this place 4 star otherwise would probably give 3.5 based on maintenance. Breakfast served in your room is great. Nightly mozzie sprays and coils lit. Just really run down. Mould in showers, pool appliances and stereo didnt work which was fixed. Close to everything though. We also had a massage costing $120 aud on our anniversary which ended up being nothing like the Honeymoon massage they advertised (ended up being 3 hrs of repetitive massage no body scrubs etc included) so I wouldn't do that again. Over all nice and convenient but unless some serious maintenance is carried out probably wouldn't stay again. Again had the staff not bent over backwards probably would have been a harsher rating.
We enjoyed our stay here and was very comfortable. Within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, beach etc. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating. My only criticism was the pool - the filtration didn't seem to be working efficiently .
We recently stayed in a 1 bedroom villa and overall everything was pretty spot on. Villa is definitely spacious, and there are a lot of nice touches which make you think that management does care about the guest experience (and has answered some of the issues dealt with in negative reviews here). People mentioned mosquitos (you are staying in the tropics at a location which provides you with a private pool...) I personally had no issue with them and the same came through and lit mosquito coils each evening + there were matches provided to light your own. The outdoor area with fan was great, funnily enough I dont come on holidays to somewhere warm to sit inside in the air conditioning, it was pleasantly breezy and we didnt end up switching the fan on all. Breakfast cooked in the room was a nice touch, was it the finest gastoronomic delight Ive ever experienced, no, but did someone carry everything in on their head at the exact time I requested each morning and cook it for me in my room - yes, so I liked it and am definitely not complaining! Location is great, Eat Street is maybe 5min walk away,its seriously faster to walk to Seminyak Square than get any sort of shuttle with traffic. Overall for a couple looking for some quiet time but still close enough to get to the action and a few nice touches around the place to make the experience a bit more memorable these villas are a fantastic option. If your a business traveller concerned about mood lighting during meetings and whether the wifi will break the sound barrier perhaps do a search for a hotel with meeting rooms, a business hub etc and not private tropical villas...
On the surface it looks great but it is starting to get a little tired and needs some maintenance and updating. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We tried most of the items on the included breakfast menu during our stay and enjoyed most of it. The portions were a good size and filled us up for the day ahead. We enjoyed our stay and will be back again with the kids.
So,first of all you will notice that the location of the villa is a bit far from crowded street.Arrive at the villa greeted by a humble staff.Check in went quickly and we escorted to the room right away.First impression be like "This is the best villa ever!".Sadly after you dig deeper into the room(Me was two bedroom)you will find out that 1.A lot of mosquito 2.Bed cover were dirty with stain 3.Same apllies to the towel 4.Very dark light system 5.Limited power socket 6.Wifi are not too fast Breakfast are quite not tasty,10 option available.For points 2-5 i still able to ingnore it.However the mosquitos are very irritating.Yes they have anti mosquitos curtain surrounding the bed,but the mosquitos still able to enter the bed through a small gap in each upper corner.This has disturbed my sleep.Management need to fix this.Pool is quite dirty,the filter system didnt work good enough Note : if you stay on the right hand side villa,when you're on shower,people can actually saw you from the grand la villais hotel upper floor,so be careful
The 2 bed rooms with the private pool so perfect for the family members. Strategic location, easy to find the food & go to the beach. The staff very helpfull & friendly. Absolutly will be back to this place.
1. Property is prominently marketed. 2. Only cooled section is bedroom so forget this place if want to mix leisure & work. 3. No provision for luggage store in bedroom. 4. Lighting is poor throughout. 5. All food is outsourced with a limited menu serving 2nd class & possibly poor hygiene meals suited more to religious sentiments without compromise. e. g. chicken sausage & imitation 'bacon' full of preservative chemicals. 6. Property would benefit from having its own decent restaurant. 7. No lounge, bar facilities. 8. No T. V. reception during the stay. 9. Security seems poor to absent. 10. Asking for a 1/2 day rate & airport transport hotel staff wanted cash only seems an irregular arrangement in what should be a well managed hotel in a prominent hotel group. 11. Hotel front desk not always attended & staff need guidance. 12. Hotel not suited to persons with special needs or need wheel chair access. 13. Hotel is not by any means a full service property. 14. Seminyak seems to have a 'used by date'. 15. Difficult to recommend this property unless nothing else going. 16. Hotel status & membership in Accor should be reviewed as a matter of priority.
Great location - short walk to eat street. Villa had an awesome layout. Friendly, helpful staff. Hade the potential to be great however not very clean. Bed sheets and towels were old and stained. Air conditioning wasn't very good.
Our stay at Bhavana villa was unsatisfactory. we had a two bedroom villa and the rooms had substandard amenities - the taps were grimy and rusty, one of them wasn't fixed to the bathroom bench securely. the mosquito nets covering the four-post beds had 1" gaps around the posts at the top. it seemed the roof thatching didn't meet the wall properly so there were geckos entering our room and waking us up with their night calls. The location is good, not far from 'eat street'. the hot water in the shower was good. the wifi kept dropping out. the staff are cheerful, although they don't clean the room very well. we had to ask them every day to change our towels, most of the towels smelled of 'damp' and the bedsheets did too. bedsheets had weird stains on them also. the cooked breakfasts were average. it's not a quiet villa complex..
We arrived here "off the street" as the villa we were staying at was very sub standard, they had a room available and would check us in that afternoon yaaay + a complimentary massage and breakfast included. Location is good, approx 5 min walk to Seminyak Square and main street lined with plenty of shops and restaurants. Our villa was 2 bed, 2 bath, big swimming pool, beds were very comfortable, mosquito nets around beds, very open - each night turn down service provided, blinds closed, mosquito nets closed, rooms sprayed with bug spray.. On the 2nd night the AC in my room lost cooling, rang reception and someone came down immediately to fix. Unfortunately it wasn't fixed, i called them again and they offered me another room for the night until the AC was fixed. My birthday happened to fall whilst staying here, in the Afternoon the manager turned up with a cake and flowers!! I'm not a flower person but the gesture just shows the good nature of the Balinese people. Had it not been for the AC being broken for 3 nights I would've given these guys a 5/5.. If I go back to Bali I will definitely be staying here again!
