Three nights at Bvilla were fantastic in all respect: personnel friendly and efficient, location fantastic, in-house breakfast prepared in villa really tasty. Fantastic assistance to find a driver for our tours during the stay. We strongly recommend under all points of view
Have just returned after a week at bvilla, staying in the 5 bedroom villa. In our group there was 6 adults, 4 kids and 1 baby. The villas were clean and spacious, the private pool was fabulous and a great hit with parents and kids without annoying other guests. The staff were excellent and very attentive, with nothing being to much trouble. Breakfast was cooked in our villa each morning and was delicious and lots of variety. In a great location with lots of shops/restaurants within walking distance. I could not recommend bvilla more highly and will definitely book here again. Thankyou to all staff!!
We stayed there last week (Aug 2017) and really enjoyed our time. The pool is massive for a private villa and the bedroom that opens to the pool is really nice also. The staff, like all Balinese are alway super happy to help and always with a smile. The breakfast while limited was very nice and I think one of the best nasigoreng we have had here. Now the downsides. The whole place is dated and when we looked around could find better value. The kitchen did smell quite mouldy and it would be nice if the villas had a lounge that two could chill on. Only one small one. All this said still a very nice place to stay.
We loved the place almost as much as the beautiful and friendly people that couldn't do enough for us. Privately cooked breakfast in our room after placing our individual orders the night before was amazing. Perfectly clean place and such a classic Balinese feel, we all loved it! Faultless really.
This was booked by another person I was travelling with as they highly recommended it from a previous stay - I have no idea why. In my opinion, the villa was very average and in serious need of an update. The only saving graces were the private pool, which was stunning and the attentiveness of the staff at the villa - they were superb. If the property has undergone a facelift, consider staying here - if not, look else where for better value for money.
The location of the Bvilla is excellent if you want to stay in Seminyak, as it is a few minutes walk to the main restaurant and shopping area, as well as the beach clubs such as Ku De Ta and Potato Head. The overall design and layout of the Villa is very nice, at first glance. However, it is in desperate need of refurbishing as it is quite worn out. Breakfast is terrible, and after a few days we stopped asking for it. Water pressure in the shower is very weak and temperature of water changes suddenly from cold to hot and vice versa, and when it turns hot you can get 2nd degree burns if you are not careful. The bed doesn't have a head rest, and I guess one doesn't know the value of a head rest in a bed until he sleeps in a bed without a head rest. Pillows and mattress are not very comfortable. Housekeeping was awful, and many times we would come back and find used glasses and cups left dirty in the room after the room was cleaned. The shades in the room allows in an abundance of light in the morning, so if you are used to sleeping in the dark you are bound to wake up around 8 am when the light comes in through the shades. After staying for 10 nights, we asked for a late check out of a few hours on the day of departure but they refused to give it to us on the grounds that there were guests arriving, which we later found out that it was big lie, and they just wanted to charge us for the late check-out.
We stayed at this bvilla-spa for 6 days and 5 nights and it was not enough. We wished we could stay longer but we had to work, we booked this hotel via email we got from their website and after reading up on trip advisor. Since we arrive in Bali 3 days earlier we did not utilise the pick-up service from bvilla as they do not provide pick-up from other parts of Bali. If you want, you have to pay extra in fact more because we managed to find a private car which cost us less than what bvilla had quoted us otherwise pick-up from airport is included in our room rate. Upon arrival at the villa, the checking in process was smooth and our villa is very near to the reception. Villa itself was very beautiful, upon entering from the main door you'll see the private pool, 2 sun deck chairs, living room, outdoor sofa, fridge, a mini kitchen and your master bed room. Bedroom is very spacious and so is the toilet with bathtub and other basic amenities. Bedroom also comes with a mini fridge (drinks inside is chargeable) in room safe, cable TV, air conditioner and full access to the private pool. Location of this villa is perfect and is about 10minutes walking distance to the heart of Seminyak, next to the villa there is a place for foot & body massage, a small convenience store, opposite the hotel there is a Chinese restaurant which is very nice, food quality is good. We tired the dimsum on our first day. Talking about food, the hotel provide free breakfast but it's not much. The staff will come to your villa and prepare it. If you'll ask for 830am, they will come by at 8am to prepare. You don't have much option which we were quite disappointed. You either have western or Indonesian, you can't have both, for big eaters this might be a minus point. There are no restaurant at the villa. You can find a supermarket somewhere in seminyak, if you walk it will be about 10-15mins. There are many mosquitos mainly in the mornings and late evenings, bring extra mosquito coil although they do provide, but it wasn't enough for me. Laundry is cheap and they take about one day to process, if you send in the morning, you'll get in back the next day noon time. We also asked the hotel for assistance to rent a motorbike for us, which includes 2 helmets, if I remember correctly it was about IDR 70-100K per day, approximately USD6-8 only. But the helmet is a bit dirty, so I bought a new helmet which was only about USD10 or so...and if you're good at bargaining maybe more discounts! It was an automatic motorbike, and it's good to explore on motorbike than car because there are jams everywhere! Our room rate includes airport transfer, so on the last day they send us to the airport by car and it was about 30mins to the airport. Altogether it was a pleasant experience and we enjoyed the private pool very much. We didn't get much sun on the first 2 days as it was cloudy and last 2 days then it was sunny and if it's sunny in Bali from your villa you can get a good suntan.
Stayed at 2 bedroom villa with pool. Good for 2 families with kids. The villa is very nice and clean, staff is very polite and very proactive. Rooms and restrooms are nice and spacious. Pool is big and kids really enjoyed their time here. Living room and kitchen is big and fully equipped. I think management should put a microwave as well, we felt it's needed in such kind of villa. Stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every moment here. We are very happy with the staff, they cleaned very well and fulfilled all our request. Mosquitoes can be a problem in villa's everywhere in bali, but in bvilla they do fogging and put mosquito repellent in all rooms, they did their best to kill as many as they can and we did not face any issues. Location is very good, near to all well known and happening restaurants and bars. Highly recommended and will be back again. Cheers to the staff and thank you for making our stay a memorable one.
Good location especially when it is probably about 10mins on foot to one of the trendiest coffee hangout places called Sisterfields (one of the 3 establishments by 8 Degree Project) and heart of Seminyak. The only setback is the room AC and breakfast selection. AC is not working well and needed a fan to cool us down from the ever scorching weather in Bali. Breakfast is freshly prepared at the villa by the butlers. Selection and quality could be improved for additional plus point and reason for a 2nd visit.
We have rented loads of villas in Bali over the years and this B Villa hit the sweet spot in terms of location and cost. The villas had decent sized pools and were in reasonable shape with no problems, The staff kindly installed a child barrier around the pool for our toddler and were very helpful in dealing with a rip-off taxi driver. Thanks!
