“Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed 10 June 2010

Very nice rooms. We enjoyed the shower in the open air.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Perfect place for a relaxing time.
Swimming pool spacious. Shopping area and nice restaurants within 10 min walk.

We highly recommend The Zen Villas in Sanur. We spent 5 nights in the 2 bedroom villa with the larger pool (not plunge one). It was large,clean, private, and perfect for us. We are fussy about accommadations and have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world (e.g. Oberoi, Four Seasons, Taj ), so we would not recommend this place if we were hesitant in any way. The only thing we would suggest is to provide better breakfast (as compared to other breakfast in other hotels in Bali). Someone could easily cook in the kitchen. You might ask about this. We must comment on how helpful Tricia was. We could not have done the 10 days in Bali that we did were it not for her help.

We stayed at Zen Villa for 5 nights in one of the Tranquility villas. The villa itself was great - spacious, clean with everything you could need (particularly liked the water cooler, the free internet access in the reception area and Zoe the dog). The pool was a good size but did get over chlorinated. Downside was that the villa was not as private as we would have liked - the 'wall' around the garden was a bamboo one so people could see in and the staff, all very pleasant, wandered in (there was no door or gate for them to knock). We were given breakfast each day but the quality of this was not great.
The villa's are situated a reasonable walk from the main area of Sanur and about 20 mins walk from the beach. We personally were disappointed by Sanur, its really nothing special, beach was not great and restaurants mediocre but that is no reflection on the Villas which are a good standard.

My husband and I were planning our first trip to Bali and read about The Zen Villas on Tripadvisor as it had a number of great reviews. We were not disappointed as the response and help during the booking process definately lived up to its reviews. Prior to our arrival they had organised a 5 day tour around the island for us including an excellent driver, and booked accommodation and activities for this tour. They picked us up from the airport which was good as it was our first time in Bali and we were a bit nervous. Upon arrival at The Zen Villas we were greeted by the staff and the hospitality of Trish the Resort Manager was exceptional. The villas were spacious, the gardens lush and very peaceful. We stayed for 10 nights, we got a great breakfast everyday. There was nothing that was to much trouble and I felt like I was at home feeling very safe and secure. Sanur was a great place for our holiday and the restaurants were fantastic. I will be back to The Zen Villas next year.

We stayed at Peace Villa E the rooms are large, all air cond plus ceililng fans , 2 bedrooms with king beds very comfy, very clean, with filtered water for drinking. The gardens are immaculate lush tropical settings. The staff are very friendly and trustworthy, always very pleased to help you in any way. they have thier own drivers to take you out for the day, this takes away the worry of finding one for yourself. What we especially liked was it was away from the hussle and bussle of areas like Kuta,yet close to all amenities and great restaurants. If you are looking for a quiet place in Bali with the luxuary of being secluded in your own Villa and your own pool we would highly recommend Peace Villa E, and if you do not want to go out and just stay in they have a Zen menu which we can recommend also. We are certainly going back to stay here again. Oh for the computer buffs the internet speed is great.

The Management and staff at Zen Villas are excellent, it truly felt like a home away from home. Nothing was too much trouble. The villas are very clean and there is nothing else you need. Your own private and maintained pool is excellent. The kids enjoyed it immensely. Breakfast was toast, pastries, juice and coffee and a huge fruit platter we couldn't eat there was so much. Security is excellent they also have the service of the resident canine Zoe, who is an excellent security guard and cute too. It is really quiet and the gardens are maintained beautifully. The proximity to restaurants and the main street in Sanur, you can walk it easily but it is not just outside the front like a lot of hotels in Bali, but then you have peace and tranquility, it's worth the trade off. It would be dark down the lane ways at night time. We hired a bike so it was no problem for us. Best accommodation stay in Bali yet and we have been many times.
