“Superb Villa Holiday”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

We stayed in the Zen Villas in April 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. From the moment that we arrived and were welcomed in a friendly and professional manner by Adi and Sri, the standard of accommodation and staff attention was second to none.
We had a one bedroom villa (which was actually a three bedroom villa with two bedrooms locked off) and the amount of living space was immense. Superb breakfasts on the verandah, a private pool and secluded gardens to enjoy - it was bliss.
The villas are around a 10 minute walk out of Sanur and so are lovely and quiet. There are plenty of places to eat in Sanur, a lovely beach and a promenade to walk along. Just one tip - make sure that you take the torch from the room when going out at night as parts of the walk are dark (in between the street lights).
Overall a superb holiday. We would thoroughly recommend Zen Villas to anyone thinking of going to Sanur.

Enjoyed a great stay at Zen Villas last week. We stayed in a 2-bdrm Tranquillity villa (H) with a large pool and jacuzzi and found the villa to be well appointed. The staff are great and keep the place clean and tidy as well as preparing a good breakfast and friendly security. It was a roomy villa and we didn't feel so 'boxed in' as you can in some places.

Everyone has a different opinions, but I quite liked the fact that the villas were a short walk to the main street & beach, as this provided an opportunity to soak up the ambiance of Sanur while ambling along the quiet back streets. You get to see things like the roosters in their wicker cages, women making their morning offerings and general Bali life that alludes the busy streets. Note that the Villas provide torches if needed and umbrellas. Both were handy.

We enjoyed the in-house massage on 2 occasions and Made and Wati provided excellent Balinese massage and hot stone massage for a very reasonable price. Some days we only left to pop out for dinner or a quick top-up for groceries from Hardys supermarket (although if you want, they will do your shopping for you, so you never have to leave!).

We will be staying here again and recommending Zen Villas to friends.

After the initial mixup on arrival at the airport (which was amicably resolved) we couldn't fault our holiday. As a group we booked three villas and we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was ever any trouble. We enjoyed the conversation each morning with the staff as they prepared a delicious breakfast each morning. We were given good honest advice from Sri and Adi in the office, and Sri even organised a birthday cake to be delivered for one of our group. The maintenance, security and housekeeping staff were all friendly. We even used the in house massage staff when we didn't want to venture out to be pampered and these ladies were simply brilliant . Our villas were well equipped and the swimming pools were kept clean, but the staff never infringed on our stay at all. I have nothing but positive words for these villas and just can't wait to return soon.

Room Tip: Villa D is the best

Everything was wonderful, Zen Villas were just perfect for a week of perfect relaxation with beautiful luxurious facilities with the greatest staff and close enough to walk to great restaurants or have dinner delivered to your door. Sanur is a nice quiet relaxing change to Kuta/Legian or Seminyak. Whatever you need the wonderful staff rush to provide or explain what to do, nothing is too much trouble. The ladies who come to prepare your breakfast or turndown your bed in the early afternoon are delightful, so polite and interested, yet you feel you have complete privacy at all times, the grounds and pool are looked after beautifully yet unobtrusively. We've been to Bali many times so this time we just wanted to vege out by the pool and this was a great place to do this, most days we ventured out just to eat and drink so it was a truly relaxing, re-invigorating holiday. Congratulations to a perfect retreat from reality!

Room Tip: Get a Tranquility villa and get a bigger pool and jacuzzi !

I cant say a bad word about the Zen Villas, from the moment we arrived, and we arrived 3 hours early, which was no problem (sing ken ken) they helped organise a scooter for us to hire, held onto our bags and away we went, returned at check in time and was taken to our beautiful villa, which is a home away from home, everything we needed was there. We were there with friends and family who happened to have the villas either side of us. We were there for 7nights and couldnt of asked for a better place to spend such a wonderful holiday. I have recommended to anyone that is coming to Bali to check out the Zen Villas, even put a link on facebook.
Will definitely be booking in here next time we are in Bali

Can't thank you enough, really enjoyed our stay. The staff were helpful, and couldn't do enough. Bit of a mix up with transport on our arrival, but nothing major in the scheme of things. Our villas were beautiful and we will definitely be back. Thanks to Adi, Sri, Windi and Mardi and the rest of the staff who work hard to assist you, keep the villas and property beautifully maintained, visitors pampered and safe with the security. The location, once you got your bearings, was fine too. Totally agree with everything Mamabear61 has to say :)
