“Tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle that is Seminyak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Stayed her with my family in Mar 2014 and enjoyed my time thoroughly. Villa Jodie is located smack in the centre of Seminyak, with plenty of dining places at your fingertips!

The Location
The location was nice and we had a good time wandering around the unique shops in the area. The beach is about a 10 - 15 minute walk away.

The Villa
It's hard to believe that the Villa has been around for over ten years! It is spotlessly clean and everything seems to be new. The 3-bedroom villa (Villa 1) has all three rooms facing the pool (sliding glass doors and layered with sliding wooden panels for more privacy). The pool is about 1.5 meters in depth which was perfect! Breakfast is served in the villa and you get to pick what you want daily from the menu. The best part is the fruit basket with lots of tropical fruits!! Also, thoughtfully, each room is equipped with a sarong, perfect for pool lounging!
Each room has its own en-suite bathroom, which is very open air (I was a bit scared to shower at night!) and comes with nice toiletries, including conditioner and hairdryer! Loved it!

The staff
While I think everyone in Bali are friendly and pleasant, the staff at Villa Jodie were exceptionally so! On the day of arrival we wanted to enjoy our time in the villa, so the staff offered to pack our lunch and serve it in the villa. Also, the driver recommended good places for shopping for Balinese art and other things at cheap prices. We even met one of the artists! They are so helpful and nothing is ever too much. You may also order spa services and be treated right by the pool :)

I would definitely return here. Thank you, Agung, for hosting us at Villa Jodie! It was a wonderful stay!!!

Room Tip: Choose villas further at the back. During the day/afternoon we could here the cars passing in the st...

Have just spent the last 10 days in Villa Jodie Seminyak and I have to say everything was above my expectations. The Villa(s) are on the main road but once in our villa it was very tranquil. So being on the main street everything is just a walk away (restaurants, Cafes, Supermarket, Pharmacy, Beach etc etc). The staff were wonderful and would always say hello or good bye and knew us by name. B.J. was always a cheery fellow and we often shared a good talk/laugh. The service was brilliant and the staff would always accommodate our wishes. I highly recommend Villa Jodie.

We have just arrived home after spending 5 nights at villa Jodi, we moved from another villa just up the strip and found the staff at villa Jodi very welcoming especially as we had no prior booking.
The villa has great layout, we had the 3 bedroom villa (2 rooms locked) which was very spacious for just the two of us. They are pretty close to the street so there is a little traffic noise, it certainly didn't bother us, we just put our iPod on the outdoor stereo, there is not much noise once inside your room so sleep comfort was as good. The villa looks stunning at night with beautiful lighting around the gardens. The bathroom is outside which is so fitting with Bali.
You couldn't get a better location than Villa Jodi it has everything on its door step. Staff are wonderful and cannot do enough to make your stay a memorable one

Room Tip: If you're worried about the traffic noise ask for villa further to the back

What a great villa. Very convenient to all the restaurants within Seminyak. Just got back from 9 nights there with my husband and parents and it was great. The team lead by Arke were amazing and so helpful. The service was perfect and no request was a problem. Thanks to the whole team for making our tay special. The villas were very nice and clean. The only issue was the air con could have been cooler but I think that is mainly due to where they are located in the room. The breakfasts are good. Fairly basic but fresh and on time every day. We will be back to stay in this santuary again in 2014.

Room Tip: We stayed in villa 3 which was the last one away from the main street.

This is my second time staying at Villa Jodie and I absolutely loved it as much as the first time. Even though it is right in the middle of the noise of Seminyak, once you enter your villa, it is like entering your own piece of paradise. I could have stayed there the whole time. There were five of us women, with a three bedroom villa. The staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble; they totally spoiled us. The villas are spotless and the breakfasts are great. The pool is divine, beds comfortable, right down to linen being changed daily. I would not hesitate in recommending Villa Jodie.

Room Tip: Ask for Villa at back, but depends whether you want two or three bedroom villa

Stayed here again for the 3rd time. Absolutely fantastic.
Villas are sensational, we have stayed in a different villa each time and all have been great. You can walk off the street from the hustle & bustle of Seminyak, and be surrounded by serene and peaceful surroundings of your villa.
The staff are fantastic, mostly the same people over the years. Very help full and nothing is a problem.
Arki is a fantastic manager of the property always smiling and very help full. BJ is great also, smiling and happy to clients.

Modern and tastefully styled villas with wonderful, accommodating staff. Why would you not stay here? We travelled to Bali with good friends (two couples) and were very happy with our choice or a two bed villa at Villa Jodie. Each villa is in its own enclosed garden off a central planted walkway. Beautiful manicured lawn in a frangipani laced tropical garden is set off by your private pool. Ours in the two bed villa was more than adequate in size for the four of us, but the 3 bed villas do have much larger pools. The open sided living pavilion has separate lounge and dining areas as well as a fully equipped kitchen. But why cook? Villa Jodie is slap bang in the middle of Jalan Laksamana (also aptly called Jalan Eat Street) where countless eateries offer the world's cuisine at ridiculously cheap prices. The Villa bedrooms are simple, elegant and clean. The bedroom "wing" is separate to the living area and bedrooms look out over the pool. They have walk in robes behind the bed area with ample hanging and storage. The robe area leads out to the ensuite bathroom which has a double basin, bath. separate shower, toilet and bidet. The ensuites are open air but under the roof line (apart from the shower which is truly open air). I love the open air bathroom with the feel of tropical air on your skin, but for those who are squeamish about open air toilets there is an enclosed toilet off the living area. I've noted a number of people talk about the noise in the front villa. Our villa was only half way down the walkway (villa 5) and we rarely heard noise from the street when sitting in the lounge and even out on the street most noise is gone by midnight. The bedrooms also have both glass doors and wooden, sliding privacy screens which we used to keep out the morning light. With the privacy screens closed we couldn't even hear our friends by the pool immediately outside.
I've travelled to Bali numerous times and love the Seminyak area for its food (both cheap and more expensive restaurants) range of shops (for the odd retail therapy) and general vibe (not crazy like Kuta but still with a holiday feel). Jodie is perfect for all this. Restaurants and shops literally on the doorstep. A two minute walk to Kuni's (my favourite Japanese restaurant in the world!) and ten minutes to walk to Ku De Ta. Other favourites such as Potato Head Beach Club and Sarong Restaurant are only a $2 and five minute taxi ride away. Much of the time staff would drive us when we were heading out- an added bonus.
The staff at Villa Jodie are a delight. Friendly and helpful with good English language skills.
There are newspaper clippings in the foyer that explain that the Villas were set up by an Australian doctor and his wife following the Bali bombings to provide work for locals. The couple had planned to go to the Sari Club with a traveller named Jodie who they had met at their hotel but they pulled out at the last minute because they were tired. That decision saved their life, meant the doctor was able to assist in the aftermath of the bomb at the local hospital and enabled them to give back to this beautiful island by naming the villas after one of the victims. They have recaptured some of the beauty and tranquility of this place in their villas.
