“Total relaxation at Zen”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

We almost gave up on Zen villa as we couldn't find it, it is tucked away down a little side street with no signs. Luckily we found it on the 2nd attempt due to our patient taxi driver. We stayed in the Harmony house, a beautiful villa, fully equipped kitchen, lounge with patio doors opening onto pool (15 metres to ourselves!), comfy bed, fab bathroom, 2nd bedroom and outdoor bathroom available. Breakfast cooked for us each morning then total privacy, cleaning done when we went out. Nothing was too much trouble.

Dear Sharonmawdesley

Thank you for taking the time to give us and other travelers feedback about your stay at The Zen Villas. I am sorry we proved hard to find the first time - we do have signs, but they are sometimes difficult to pick in amongst all the other signs. I'm glad you had a patient taxi driver.

Our Harmony Villa is beautiful, and our team are pleased to hear you had a great time. We hope to welcome you back to The Zen Villas soon!

We originally booked for four nights but extended to six, we loved the place so much! We booked the Harmony villa - two bedrooms, tho we only used one, lounge all open plan, fully equipped kitchen, best of all 15 metre pool all to ourselves, totally private! Immaculately cleaned every day, plus breakfast cooked in your kitchen for you. Adi and Sri on reception really helpful, always smiling! Typical example, wanted some beers in the room and they had none chilled so they went out to buy some for us rather than have us wait! Totally relaxed here, wonderful place, wonderful people.

We first came across an advertisement for Zen Villas in our Sunday newspaper 3 years ago - it was karma! Revisited again during Oct/Nov 2012 and currently planning our next trip for October 2013! If you are bali freaks like us and enjoy nothing better than to come back to a little peace and quiet after a hectic day of shopping, massagers and sightseeing , the chirping of birds, the call of the little geckos, the cool afternoon breezes whilst relaxing beside your own personal pool - then this is a must-see for you. Zen is a mere 10 minute amble from the main drag of Danau Tamblingan. Zen Villas are set amongst lush manicured gardens, where each villa reflects its own uniqueness. The villas give you that 'I'm home' squishy feeling upon arrival. Trish, Adi, Sri, Windi and the remainder of the team certainly make you feel No 1 the whole time you are there. Nothing is too much trouble, you need only ask. Our only disappointment comes when we are packing to come home! Roll on 2013!

Just sat in Tranquility villa H having a lovely breakfast on a beautiful morning. The villas are peaceful and relaxing, set back from the main road in Sanur, but easily accessible with a short walk down the lanes. The villas themselves are well equipped, luxurious and clean. The team here are great! Helpful, friendly and considerate, arranging trips, in villa massage and answering any other questions you might have. Their interest in guests and willingness to help is genuine and their attention to detail is second to none. Having walked around much of Sanur and seen many types of accommodation on offer, we are very pleased we chose to stay at The Zen!

We spent five days in Harmony Villa Sept-Oct. We loved the spacious Villa, especially the huge pool. The fences around the courtyard were high enough to provide total privacy. The breakfast was excellent and we tasted everything in the menu during our stay. The staff was extremely helpful and e.g. arranged us masseuses within only one hour notice. We came in late and they had arranged us something to eat and drink. We were able to anjoy the fruits during our entire stay. There were a lot of restaurants within 20 minutes walk and we actually liked taking a walk back to the Villa because it provided us some excercise after the dinner. It was also safe to walk back in the evening. We would definately recommend this Villa to anyone planning a vacation in Sanur.

We stayed at Zen Villas (in Villa G) for 8 wonderful days. The Villa was spotless & cleaned every morning, the staff were wonderful & were always smiling. Nothing was too hard for the staff including recommending restaurants, booking transport to the lovely turn down service with cookies! The pool was excellent & huge, breaky every morning was great! The only issue we had was with a damned rooster that would crow in the middle of the night! but this is out of Zen Villas control. Zen Villas staff have said that they will approach the owner of the blasted chook & try to work something out.
I feel like chicken tonight....lol
Would have no problems staying here again & recommending to travelers, great value for what you get.
Excellent..

We stayed recently for three nights in Villa C and loved the place we wished we had booked for longer as we really would have enjoyed a couple of more nights at least. On the first night we had an issue with the power and water but this was a one of and fixed by breakfast. We loved the layout of the villa and pool it was ideal for our family with a three and five year old. All staff were exceptional and little things like the welcome pack in the villa and lollipops for the kids instead of a welcome drink made a difference. We had no problem with its location only a fifteen minute walk to Hardys not on the main strip but quite and private instead we used taxis of a night time. We did have to use mosquito coils and repellant as the kids got a few bites. Would recommend this place to family and friends.
