Gending Kedis Villas & Spa Estate
Ranked #16 of 57 Hotels in Jimbaran
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We have just returned from Bali , which was a great family holiday with our adult children and their partners. Gending Kedis was a magnificent choice and suited us perfectly. We stayed in a villa for 10 days which had every amenity we needed and more. The staff were attentive and hospitable, they could not do enough to make our holiday perfect. I loved the private pool, the shuttle service, the room service and the great breakfast menu. I suggest you take advantage of the Balinese cooking class which is run by the resort's' executive chef Nyamon....and ask Putu for a special cocktail....he speaks over 20 languages so he can help. He also plays a mean blues guitar. I highly recommend this resort.

We booked a 1-bedroom villa from a groupon deal from Singapore for a 4d3n stay last aug7-10. Because I am pregnant, this became our babymoon trip. Things went smoothly with our stay at Gending Kedis. The villa (prinia 3) was huge, in fact we were wondering at times what parts of the villa to hang out in as there were so much space :) it was a good problem to have. The pool was just perfect for two people but the water was really cold so we can only swim during the hottest part of the day. We thought at first that it was a heated pool. We ate our breakfast at the balcony area and the view of the forest was lovely, but we noticed that the wooden railings were a bit run down and shaky and I suggest it needs to have a replacement or have it fixed because if a person leans on to it they might end up falling on the woods below. Wifi was ok, it was a bit slow at times when we were downstairs at the bedroom but sometimes we were able to connect to another faster signal when we were upstairs at the living room.

In order to get to the villa, there were a lot of steps of stairs to take. Because I'm pregnant it was a bit tiring for me and we had to go up slowly. Going down was not a problem.

The staff were all smiles whenever we come across them and some even stopped by to chat when we were eating at the restaurant. Transportation was available for free whenever we asked for it. The staff were very helpful in recommending some tours and activities when we asked. The only thing is we didn't know that some services required a reservation one day in advance. When we inquired early morning to have a cooking class and barbeque dinner by our private pool, we were not able to avail because the staff needed 1 day advanced notice for those activities. We were not able to avail anymore since our flight was on the next day. It would have been helpful if the staff or the manual (in the villa) was able to say that beforehand.

Anyway these are just minor things and it did not ruin our experience as a whole. We enjoyed our villa a lot.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay in Gending Kedis. The villa that we stayed in was huge and had everything that we need. The staff are attentive and friendly. My husband and I are first-timers in Bali and at the end of our 4-day vacation we wished that we could stay longer and it's primarily because of how wonderful this villa is. My only complaints are the mosquitoes by the private poolside and flies at the restaurant..big turn-off :( But apart from those, it's a great place. We will definitely recommend Gending Kedis to our friends.

The perfect location for a quiet and peaceful holiday. Close to everything and family friendly. Gending at Jimbaran is excellent value. The villa's are wonderful and the staff attentive and professional.

About 20-30 friends/relatives gathered at Gending for several days before my daughter's wedding (which took place elsewhere). Gending turned out to be perfect for us. We occupied a number of villas, from 4-bedroom to 2-bedroom. Each room within the villas (at least the ones I saw) was huge, well-kept, and comfortable. And the villas themselves had spacious living rooms and private pools. For the 4-bedroom villas, a single living room was large enough for many of us to gather in the evenings; and a single pool was big enough for a pool party for 20 or so. Very nice for a good-sized group. The staff and owner are friendly, accommodating, and try very hard, in stark contrast to many other hotels/villas. We held a welcome dinner at Gending for about 30-40 of our wedding guests, some of whom were staying at Gending and some of whom were not. It was very easy arranging this with the Gending staff. Again, they try hard. The only downside to Gending is that it's a long walk or short drive to Jimbaran. The owner and staff tried to make up for the awkward location by offering us free rides into town whenever we wanted. So I had no trouble getting into town for laundry, a massage, a restaurant, etc. If you want to be right in the middle of restaurants, nightlife, or shopping, Gending may not be for you. If you want a pleasant place to have fun with a group of people, I couldn't recommend it more.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a 2 bed villa. The villa itself was very large set over two floors and was excellently equipped. Our villa was just beginning to show signs of wear and tear in places. Our pool was a very good size but could have done with more than one step to get into it. I would have preferred to be in a villa further into the resort where it appeared to be more tranquil. Where we were it was possible to hear noise from the main pool at times. However the staff were very helpful and the shuttle pick up and drop off into Jimbaran was excellent. We had a brilliant day at Finns Beach Club which is around a 20 minute taxi ride away. The breakfasts were the best we had in Bali being cooked on demand and there was a good choice.

With friendly staff and breathtaking views, your stay at Gending Kedis will be a quiet getaway that you will never forget. The villas are lovely and the staff are always on hand to serve you with a smile. We stayed at these villas for 4 days and 4 nights and when the trip came to an end, I just wished that we had at least a week more. Seeing as I am a 15 year old I was very worried that I was going to get bored, but there were tons of things to do and there were so many restaurant available to get to by the villa shuttle. All in all, it was a luxurious stay at amazing villas with staff that were always ready to serve with a smile.

Room Tip: Rooms further into the resort are quieter
