“Could not ask for a more perfect place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2011

The villas are beautiful, our on plunge pool, private Bale, lounge, kitchen, outside meals area. We could not ask for more. The staff were so helpful, the Balinese reception/daily manager was wonderful. The Australian Manager could not have been better. If you need to find something or want to buy something, they know the best places to go and prices to pay.

We hired a scooter for our stay which gave us a lot more freedom. It is only a 5 minute walk to the main Sanur road but with the bike it was 45 seconds.

I'd suggest this would be a wonderful Honeymoon location. Privacy in absolutely beautiful surroundings. Like your own private Eden.

My wife and I returned to Zen Villas for the second time in 6 months and once again had the most fantastic time. We stayed in VILLA D once again and had ten days of glorious weather. The standard of service and friendliness of the staff was once again very evident as they seem very non intrusive , helpful and always had a smile on their face to greet you.
Sanur is the quiet choice in Bali and if it's peace and relaxation you want look no further than the Zen Villas.
As previously stated on other reviews it is a short walk to the main area of shops and restaurants, but is very pleasant in a quiet residential area, where the locals are all very happy to say hello and pass the time of day with you.
There are many restaurants to choose from and all are very reasonably priced with more than enough choice on the menu .
We had many a relaxed afternoon walk along the beach front with all the many hotels and shops to find a bargain or two.
After our meal in the evening we would retire to our villa for a few drinks in the relaxing surroundings and chill out ready for the next day
There were a few changes from our last trip as a turn down service is now part of the service and also a laundry service which was very reasonably priced .
All in all we no doubt will be returning to Zen Villas in the very near future as we can find no fault in the way the place is managed or run and again our thanks go to Trish and Fiona and all the staff for helping to make our holiday so comfortable and so relaxing. See you all again soon.

We stayed at Zen Villas for 9 nights in a Serenity villa. Zen is a lovely collection of well kept villas, which are cared for along with their guests by very friendly and attentive staff. The villas and grounds are spotlessly clean. We enjoyed having our own pool and private space to relax without feeling the need to keep heading out. The reception staff were very helpful, booking taxis and giving advice on numerous occassions. The villas are a 15min walk from the beach. We can see how for some this would be an inconvenience (small children etc) but in fact we found it quite endearing to walk past the friendly locals and small shops. It isn't on the beach though, so if thats what you want, you may be disappointed. We enjoyed seeing that Sanur is more than a beach and is in fact a pleasant town. The cost was more than we would normally pay for Bali accomodation, but for quite a lengthy stay, we thought it was worth the extra to have such a homely place. Overall a high quality set of villa, with excellent staff and a great location.

Room Tip: All villas are high quality

We really enjoyed our stay at the Zen Villas, it had everything we needed, a home away from home. The kids loved it (2 boys aged 4 and 8yrs old) and spent heaps of time in the pool, we had one of the tranquility villas with the pool and spa. The only drawback was that it was tucked away down the back lanes - not too far - but when you have young kids not into walking it's probably best to get a taxi! Apart from that we highly recommend it, the rooms were clean and quiet and the service excellent.

My partner and I recently stayed at the Zen Villas in a tranquility villa complete with it's own spa and lap pool.
This is one of the few places we have stayed in where we couldn't wait to get back to every time we ventured out. The outdoor bathrooms were beautiful with statues, flowers and even a lounge not to mention the huge outdoor bathtub.The location we thought was a drawing point, tucked away in the back streets of Sanur. You get a feel for the real Bali walking through these streets with lots of friendly locals stopping to say hello. The walk is only around 10 minutes to the beach and a touch longer to the markets. There is also a large supermarket nearby for those wanting to cook for themselves, not that you need to as Zen villas is only a 10 minute walk to so many good restaurants. The hardest part of our day there was working out where to have dinner each night, bliss.....
The staff here are very helpful, one incident that comes to mind was when I was lying by our pool in the sun the cleaner/ pool cleaners kindly went and fetched me a huge sun lounge without my even having to ask.
The gardens and outdoor areas surrounding the pool in the villas are lovely, lots of tropical flowers, nice lighting and huge outdoor dining areas. The bales also have mosquito nets, huge fan and lighting, perfect spot for a nice read day or night.
I would thoroughly recommend the Zen Villas and can't wait to get back there again.

We had kept the best for last......Sanur was to be our last 5 nights in Bali, and we had chosen The Zen Villas. We had been in Bali for almost 3 weeks, staying in Seminyak, Permuteran and Ubud. Our driver found Zen tucked away down a long lane, away from the main street, and a location we were to appreciate once we settled in. With a short walk or quick taxi ride the villas were close enough to everything we wanted to see and do. Check in was friendly and efficient, and after our cool welcome drink and refresher towel, we were escorted to our "Peace Villa E". Absolutely beautiful, spacious, clean and attention to detail was spot on. Decor was modern and so comfortable. A clean inviting plunge pool, large outdoor terrace complete with large 6 seater wooden table and chairs. Breakfast was served here each morning at our requested time. We were treated like Royalty by the staff. Our garden area was completely private, surrounded by a 'nature fence' of tropical plants and palms.
Security was 24 hours and this made us feel safe and secure. When we could drag ourselves away from our villa, we found many delightful restaurants and shops along the main street. The beach was clean and the boardwalk gave a lovely relaxed feel to an afternoon walk, stopping for the odd drink at one of the many beach side bars. Our kitchen had everything we needed, and we shopped at Hardy's department store (short walk away) for food snacks and drinks after our free Welcome Pack was finished. This was a great touch and well thought out, something we didn't find in other accommodation. Fans & air con worked, water cooler provided, large fridge (no silly little bar fridge here), housekeeping visited each day and we didn't need to lift a finger.......just what a perfect holiday should feel like. Nothing disappointed us about Zen Villas. Trish the manager was super; a bright friendly lady with excellent people skills, which were truly reflected in her staff. Thank you for a wonderful holiday and an amazing Bali experience staying at The Zen Villas.

Room Tip: Any villas would be perfect at Zen !

The Zen Villa complex in Sanur is beautifully landscaped in a private and tranquil location. My villa was spacious, light filled with contemporary furnishing and very comfortable. The reception and daily housekeeping staff were friendly, cheerful and smiling and keen to assist in any way to make my stay memorable. Breakfast served on the patio beside the villa pool was memorable.
