This was hands down the best family holiday we have ever been on and this was all down to the amazing staff at Villa Elleo. The villa sells itself- it really is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. The rooms are all spacious and kept clean during your stay with gorgeous bathrooms. There are big communal areas that allow everyone to be together- big dining and lounge areas. Lots of space around the pool too. This meant that with 13 of us staying, everyone was more than comfortable without ever feeling cramped or on top of each other. It is in a great location if you are able to drag yourself away from the pool! But the staff- Yanti, Nyoman, Made and Made (security) were the people who made the holiday. They went above and beyond to make our holiday as perfect as it was. No ask was ever too much. They organised and cooked a beautiful traditional Balinese banquet for our first evening and a gorgeous breakfast one morning, ordered and collected birthday cakes for us, took midnight trips to the supermarket for breakfast supplies and beer, ordered and collected take away meals from local restaurants, made reservations in restaurants and beach clubs, organised airport transfers and trips with a fantastic driver- Wayan, organised massages and treatments in the villa, NOTHING was too much to ask. They were all extremely helpful, professional and genuinely nice people. We can’t thank them enough for everything they did to make our families feel at home. We would definitely stay again!
We stayed at Villa Elleo last year and have just re-booked to head back again this year! We couldn't even imagine staying anywhere else now, knowing the Villa is safe, the staff are friendly and fluent in English and the owners are only around the corner and always dropping by with recommendations and help when we needed.
What was most noteworthy:
SAFETY: As a travelling young woman, safety is my biggest concern. With a security guard monitoring the property all night (and there to wish us well on our way out and greet us on our way home) and a team available all day - safety was no concern at all.
LOCATION: So close to the shops and incredible restaurants of Seminyak! This location for perfect for anyone wanting to make the most of the food and shopping in Bali. Plus just a short scooter away from fantastic beaches and sights!
PROFESSIONALISM: The staff were incredibly professional and so friendly. From sourcing our scooters for us, recommending local eats and even reminding us to put our handbags across our shoulders instead of over one shoulder (to prevent it getting snatched) they took great care of us, always.
Like I said at the start, no other villa in Bali will ever compare. I would probably rather not write this review so I can keep this Villa all to myself, but that would be too selfish!
Villa Elleo is in a great location close to shops and restaurants. It suited our families very well accomodating 8 couples in privacy and 5 young adults in the 2 adjoining villas. The staff were second to non. We held a 50th birthday celebration at the villa hosting 20+ adults and the banquet we had was some of the best food we had had all holiday. Meeting the owners was an intimate and appreciated touch. Made the security guard went above and beyond and you could tell he genuinely loved helping us and getting to know us. The only small negative was we thought a bit of a spruce up aethetically might be due. The mosquitoes were an annoyance in the outdoor bathrooms but we soon discovered the mosquito coils and lit them in the ensuite. Not a problem we don’t encounter back here in Australia, so no big deal. Would definitely recommend and some of our friends who saw it at our party are converted.
Really nice clean well kept villa. Friendly and helpful staff. Perfect for families or friends who want to stay together. A short walk to the beach or seminyak square.
If you are contemplating the hire of a large or small Villa in Seminyak, arguably the most exclusive suburb in Bali then I recommend you look no further than Villa.Elleo.
we stayed with friends in this spotlessly clean, beautiful modern & tastefully furnished property. It comes complete with security, maid/cook and butler who are ultra-friendly and super-helpful with suggesting tourist activities as well as local dining recommendations.
The Villa itself comes complete with Six bedrooms (all with Ensuites) for the extended family. Or if it’s something smaller you require, the property can be split into two separate smaller villas both with their own private pools. The fantastic location is two minutes in either direction to the beach or shops and spectacular bars and restaurants.
I can thoroughly recommend this property in every respect and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. We'll visit again!
Have just spent an amazing week at Villa Elleo with a group of friends. Not the first time we have stayed here (doubt it will be the last) but it just keeps getting better.
The refurbished rear rooms of the Villa have been very well finished and the addition of the second pool was fantastic. As much as we loved the enhancements to the villa it's all about the staff and the great location for us. Can't recommend this gem strongly enough.
