“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

Only positive things to say about The Residence. We were there in April and had a great time.

Staff we friendly and helpful. We stayed in the 2 bedroom delux which was perfect for what we needed.

Great location to all the action.

Will be returning when we get back to Bali and will recomend to all our friends.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom delux was perfect for us

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

First time at this property in Seminyak and had a very pleasant stay - having stayed at a number of villa style properties in the area so here are some comments.

Villa quality good, spacious. Staff friendly and helpful.
Pool & terrace location meant no sun for sunbeds at any time of the day - disappointing of course.
Amenties - good but lacking final touches - iPod dock, coffee maker, TV in bedroom for example.
Towel rail loose keeps falling off, annoying as must happen every time staff replace towels so fix it!! #9
Both Air con and fan in bedroom work well but make a racket so need maintenance..
Breakfast - service prompt and on time, average quality for this style of accomodation
Location - better than ancticipated - couple of minutes walk to Seminyak Square & "eat street"; 10 minutes or so to beach; also well located the other side for Jl. Petitenget restaurants.

Overall a good standard and a very pleasant stay. Would return so pros outway the cons.

Dear Martin

Thank you for your review. Much has changed since you wrote this and we have taken to heart what our guests have said, and fixed everything so there are iPod docks, stereo systems, flat screen TV's, air-con regularly serviced and our maintenance team is on call 24/7 should anything go wrong. Breakfasts have also been upgraded, as we believe our guests should always have a great start to the day.

Best regards from all of us at The Residence

I stayed at this property from 31st March 2012 to 04th April 2012 with my family and found the property to be excellent. I would strongly recommend anyone travelling with family to consider this as one of the options for stay during their visit to Bali. Staff is very friendly and prompt to attend to all the guests needs. The property has everything as they promise in their website. The location despite being nice and quiet is very close to most of the facilities (restaurants, convenience stores, pharmacy, etc.). The property is also extremely well maintained and every requirement of ours was well taken care of.

We stayed here with our 3 boys under 3 for four nights. The location is great for walking in to the main street of Seminyak close to "eat street" and shops. If you prefer to be walking distance to the beach I wouldn’t recommend these villas.

The staff were so lovely, we had to move to another villa in the Residence as the first villa wasn’t so good for our boys, and the staff we so helpful and understanding.

The breakfast was good and cooked in our room each day. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The pool was great, in the sun, very private.

If you are travelling with young children, my suggestion is to make sure all bedrooms are in the same building. We stayed in 4 properties in 10 nights during our stay as all the villas had the bedrooms separate to the living areas. This is great if you are travelling with other adults but not so good when you're with kids.

Dear Mumontherun2678

Thank you for your review which is so much appreciated. The reservations team at the new Residence management company try to make sure that all guests needs are met prior to arrival at the villa and learning everything a guest might need for a perfect Bali holiday, so, these days we try to assign the perfect villa so no moving to other villas is required.

Hopefully we can entertain you and your family again in the future

Loved it. Spacious, private, good service.

Location is not the best if you want to be close to the beach (about 20 minutes walk). But you have your own PRIVATE POOL!!! Breakfast served every morning was really special. High walls around the compound give you all the privacy you need. Big, well appointed rooms and living room and kitchen impressed us - traveling from Japan. No bed bugs, clean linen - all good.

On the downside, a few minor things: no towel racks inside or out, no where to hang your wet swimmers, no stereo, no stools for bar kitchen, kitchen has only bare minimum of utensils. I was a bit disappointed they served instant coffee rather than fresh local.

But these were only minor - The Residence was WONDERFUL.

Only thing I wasn't impressed with was Seminyak itself - definitely not the laid back, natural place I was hoping for. No elegance whatsoever. Restaurants were generally tacky, sidewalks dangerous, and the beach itself dirty by Australian standards. It's like what I though KUTA would be - a bit of a tourist ghetto.

Dear jerzgerl

Thank you for your review. Since you wrote this review much has changed in our villas and this part of Seminyak. Our villas now have every convenience including stereo, full kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glassware - champagne flutes and shot glasses to toasters, blenders and microwaves.

Seminyak too has changed. Pavements have been fixed, this area now has a plethora of cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques including a high end shopping mall at Seminyak Village with Seminyak Square just round the corner.

Hopefully we can entertain you again

Hello,
First off we loved our stay at the Residence Seminyak- stayed there in November 2011 for my 29th birthday and had a gorgeous 3 bedroom residence with the best private pool. We stayed for 5 days and when we got to Japan my mom noticed bites all over her body. She had them in Bali but thought they were mosquito bites. The 1st day we arrived in Japan they said she had bed bug bites. She mentioned while in Bali there was something about the room that made her itch and well...I am assuming bed bugs. Each residence is the private home to someone so it definitely could be the case. Other than that the service was incredibly sweet- breakfast every morning and they were honestly the best people. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the bed bugs in our residence ( #3)

Again, we apologize for not making your stay perfect

We went out there to surprise our son and his friend with his family who have been travelling for two months, we can honestly say it was one of the best holidays we have ever had, nothing for the hotel was to much trouble. What we experienced is exactly what the other reviews are saying, and because of the exchange rate we were eating 5 star food in the local restaurants (including drinks) for approx £15 a head...fantastic

Go out there and experience Bali, it is amazing.

PS Fly with Malaysian Airways, again nothing was to much trouble, (our airlines could learn so much from these people)
