“Tranquil escape from the hubbub”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Although Seminyak is not our favourite part of Bali as we do not like the noise, traffic, pollution and uneven or non-existent footpaths ( I had a slip on the gravel where I grazed my knee which put an end to the swimming I had previously enjoyed daily in the lap pool) , Bali Island Villa is a lovely tranquil retreat. We have just returned from a two week stay and the villa itself, was almost perfect in every way. The staff are friendly, the villa and pool area spacious and relaxing. We had some minor issues with the internet service dropping out and the DVD player not always working but the staff were always eager to help with any issues.

Room Tip: All the units are private and quiet.

This is a small boutique resort, but was absolutely amazing and one of the most enjoyable get-aways my wife and I have had. The service was second to none starting with the pick-up from the airport and check-in in our villa. Every request we had from room service, to a ride to town, to needing a help with Wifi was immediately taken care. We never had to wait and it felt like you were the only guest there. Our idea of a vacation is to sit by the pool and read a book and with this gorgous pool and courtyard we did just that. We probably spent 18 -20hours a day in the unit and never once did they disturb us to make up the room, but the minute we stepped out, it was always cleaned and refreshed. Literallly each morning we would go for a 20 minute walk after breakfast and each time we would come back the room was pristine. For a small place the food was great and always hot when served in the villa. We met the President of the resort who was very personable and genuinely interested in making your time enjoyable.

The pictures are exactly as shown. The units are beautiful and the pool and trickling waterfall are to die for. It was like being in a spa all day and night. The units and courtyards are completely private and also have a great roof top king size cabana bed. The bathrooms are also designed great and are clean.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Bali Island Villas, will return in the future, and definitely would recommend it. There is nothing we would change about the experience or the resort.

Bali Island Villas is located in Seminyak, right next to Potato head Beach Cafe. If you like sunset dinner by the beach and drinks after you would know Potato head in Seminyak. Our villa has a nice pool with a roof deck. The living rooms and bedroom are spacious and clean. Staff are friendly and polite. They will bring you your breakfast into your villa daily and afternoon tea when you request. There is also a free shuttle to Seminyak area, just ask and they will take you there. Overall a very good experience. They are building more villas to accommodate more travellers. Tanah Merah Spa is approx 100m away from the villa. That is a very good establishment. They take to detail on how to make you relax. Welcome drinks and towel and then the massage. Its a blissful experience. You got to try it!

Things that could have been better would be stronger water pressure for the showers and more common facilities like a fitness centre, common area, etc

Room Tip: Rooms are located in the same stretch so there isn't really a difference. But if you don't w...

I am not able to give Bali Island Villas & Spa a 4 or 5 star rating because of the unfortunate booking experience my husband and I had with them. We booked a room through RCI about 7 months before traveling. In the week leading up to our stay, I confirmed our reservation several times with the hotel and have both email confirmation from RCI and emails directly from their reservation department.

Upon arrival, we were told that they were at capacity and our room was not available (there was something about "government officials" unexpectedly arrived and needed an extra room so for some reason my husband and I were the "chosen ones" to be bumped. Not once did we receive an email, phone call, or was RCI contacted to be told we were being booted for the first 3 nights of our stay (we planned to stay for 6). Had we know, we would have extended our stay a few extra nights at our resort in Ubud (which was so hard to leave!) before taking the 2 hour drive to Seminyak! This was EXTREMELY frustrating. To top it off, I had become very ill in previous days and was pretty weak and dehydrated while they scrambled to find us a place to stay.

Understandably, we were very upset and annoyed.They took us to a villa 15 minutes outside of town and not within walking distance of any shops, restaurants, beach etc. We said we did not want to stay there because it was not comparable or even in Seminyak!

We are gold Starwood members and were then taken to the W hotel located next door to Bali Island V&S. Although the W was sold out, they were very empathetic to our situation and found us a room. Bali Island V&S were willing to comp our 3 nights at another hotel, but refused to comp at the W (the room rate was perhaps $75-$100 more per night than Bali Island V&S but in the exact same location in town). We were still pretty upset with the situation so while our room was being prepared, my husband went back to Bali Island V&S to continue the conversation.

The manager did try the best he could and I give him credit for that, but I suppose was restricted by policies because we really had to push to end up in a villa in Seminyak.

"Magically" they were able to secure us 3 nights at The Ulin Villas. We had a wonderful stay at Ulin and returned to Bali Island S&V 3 days later.

Our stay there was fine. The room was clean, the pool in the room was great, but unfortunately couldn't compare to the oasis grounds of Ulin. Everyone was really nice and accommodating once we checked in. Our breakfast was comped each morning because of the mishap and we also received a free spa treatment each - however it wasn't spectacular compared to other treatments we received at other locations.

Everything about it was just so-so, although caveat that my opinion is tainted by the unfortunate check-in experience. TripAdvisor is the place for honest reviews, right?

Would I stay there again, sure. But I'd probably look elsewhere first, go somewhere else for the spa treatment and remember to request Ulin if we were bumped a second time!

PS - we enjoyed a day at Potato Head beach club. highly recommend it!

Located right next to Potato Head. Couldn't fault the villas - they are amazing! Only thing that i was slightly disappointed in was the quality of the breakfast, but didn't really bother me because sea circus (my favourite bali eatery) is such a close walk :)
