I cannot express in words the beauty and serenity of this hotel. My husband and i stayed here for our honeymoon for a week in November 2010. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like royalty! The staff were so professional and extra helpful. The villa had it's own private pool and everything was open, apart from the bedroom which could be locked up to keep your luggage safe. Although there is not a need in the world to worry about protecting your belongings in this hotel, the staff are just so respectful and bow at you to greet you. The room service is great and our free daily breakfast was delicious!

The villas are in close proximity to some of the most amazing shops and boutique clothing stores i have ever been to. You can walk to some of the most wonderful restaurants that Bali has to offer and if you like the night life it's also just a 2 minute taxi ride to the centre of Kuta.

I seriously cannot fault this hotel, it has such an authentic spiritual feeling to it. I was a little worried about mosquitoes because of the open plan living but the staff come and spray and put up mosquito coils every day for you and turn down the bed. It's just incredible service and my huband and i cannot wait to stay here again!

Good work guys!

Booked Kanishka after reading all the great reviews, but was a little disappointed.

The good points are a great location within easy walking distance to restaurants and Bintang supermarket etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful and even rang us to let us know we were going to miss out on breakfast! Overall a nice looking villa and a comfy bed that was chaged daily.

The negatives were all the water was turned off for several hours due to pipe maintenance, poor internet connection, the rain shower couldnt rinse your hair so I had to shower by sitting in the bathtub using the handheld shower, no dvd player in the bedroom, and very little sun in the courtyard/pool area (but the flowering frangapani tree was worth it!), no place to hang your pool entered you had to let them out and snib your door otherwise they would just leave it to bang in the breeze - which our neighbours doors did on several occassions which woke us up ...

Overall I have found better value for money in a Seminyak villa.

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
Thank you very much for your review and candid assessment of our services. It is kind of you to make mention of our friendly staff. Most regrettably, during your stay we experienced a burst water pipe which did affect the water supply for a few hours; for that we apologise! Sorry that our bedrooms do not have DVD players as all our villas have DVD players in the main living room with a 42" TV. We are pleased to advise that we now offer iPods in all our villas as an added value service.
Thank you again for taking your time to write your informative review. Warm wishes from me and our GK Resorts team. Douglas Wallace

Gasp. Lovely place and villa ruined by really terrible bugs! bed bugs have eaten my baby boy alive so much so that he doesn't want to sleep in the cot provided by the villa. have asked to change the cot but full occupancy means no such luck. sleeping in bed is a bit tricky still for my 18mth old. mossies are regular bed friends. if you can't sleep with them buzzing around your ear, don't think of coming here. and of course, there's the noise. neighbours blast TV and music all night; planes fly over (i think on their way to Denpasar airport) so close i can see the undercarriage.

The staffs are very friendly and can speak good english. Can bring you around Seminyak area such as beach and nearby Spa/Massage of your choice. The villa is quite well maintained. Personal small pool. The kitchen has basic stuff so that you can bring your own food to cook. But why cook when there's some many restaurant nearby as well as supermarket. Overall very nice experience.

Excellent location right near Bali Deli. Walking distance to shops in Seminyak. Very clean villas with a nice living area and pool. Food was good and service fast and friendly. Ideal for a couple or two individuals or even two couples. I was very happy with the price compared to other villas that can't claim to be as well maintained.

Recently travelled to Bali to get away from the stress of a construction project near our home and were hoping for some much needed rest. Unfortunately the villa that we had rented for a week was right opposite a construction site, staff were apologetic for the noise but had I have known prior to booking I would not have stayed here. The reason we chose this location is because we have stayed in Villas nearby before and had a relaxing peaceful holiday. Due to the noise of nearby villas as well as the construction site we do not recommend staying here which is a shame as the Villa was nice although there was no sun around the pool.

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
Thank you for your time to write your review which is most appreciated. We regret very much that a nearby construction site caused you disturbance. It is most unfortunate and we are hoping that this particular work will be completed soon. We apologize that at the time of your vacation our villas very mostly occupied and it was just not possible to offer you the option to move to a more quiet location.
I would appreciate if you would make contact with me directly for a future planned visit.
Thank you again for your review. Kind regards, Douglas Wallace
