We stayed in August 2015 in the Shikumen Villa for 10 days. The Villa is a real lovely place. The full staff is highly engaged and they are willing to do all for a perfect stay.

Thanks for choosing to stay with us a second time; it is always a pleasure to have return guests.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Off Drupadi, turn at La Sat Restaurant. Private, luxury super deluxe poolside 1 bedroom suite, stylish and unique for that extra special tropical holiday escape. Romantic, unique and very very sexy. The Shikumen Suite is romantic and spacious featuring an antique hip bath in the huge stunning bedroom, as well as a private en suite and courtyard. It is a great option for a honeymoon or anniversary, or any other romantic interlude you have planned. The structure is antique, but contemporary luxury is a key feature of the Shikumen Suite. The bed is king sized and comfortable, and dressed with bamboo linen for that extra special feel on your skin. Blending an antique wooden Chinese house with contemporary design, Shikumen Suite is unique, elegant, beautiful and very very romantic. GENERAL INFORMATION Shikumen Suite is nestled in the heart of Seminyak. Indulge yourself in the pleasures of Seminyak's fabulous restaurants, boutique shops, vibrant night life and the popular beach only a short walk away. Guests also have free use of the 14 metre Ginger SwImmIng Pool and it's double day beds.The location is ideal for guests who want to be close to the beach as well as looking to experience inner city living, dInIng and shoppIng Bali style.Hidden down a secluded lane, but within Bali's premiere tourist district, Shikumen Suite is located in fine company; fine dining, fine shopping and fine night-life. It is walking distance to many great restaurants and venues, and a 5 minute taxi-ride to places such as KuDeTa, "Eat Street", Potato Head and just around the corner from Jalan Seminyak with great restaurants such as Queens Tandoor and Made's Warung.Only 500 metres from the beach and our favourite Spa around the corner, it is the perfect location for a relaxing and sensuous holiday with numerous options for you to explore, including the option to stay right where you are. DIRECTIONS Turn on to Jalan Drupadi from either Jalan Camplung Tanduk (locally known as Jalan Dyana Pura) or Jalan Kayu Aya (locally known as "Eat Street"). Then turn into Jalan Drupadi II (Opposite Harris Hotel) go straight to the end of this short road and then turn left into the driveway. Access by motorbike can also be made from Jalan Dyana Pura. Turn right into Gang Cempaka. Follow this small gang (lane) around a bend which will then continue straight towards the driveway of Shikumen Suite. This is also the driveway to Bali Ginger Suites. ... more   less

“Shikumen Poolside Suite is definitely my pick at Bali Ginger Suites. I have rated noise as being average because it is peaceful and quiet during the day, but there is noise from the bars on the main road at night (though this did not bother us or interrupt our sleep at all). Sleep quality in this room is OUTSTANDING.”
