“Had Issues, Very Disapointing”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights in a Private Pool Villa. Negatives were: Booked a trip that was advertised on the web site called "The Balinese Experience" including All entrance fees, 1 hour Balinese Massage & Dinner. Very disappointed. Reception staff had no idea where we were going, Driver was 45 mins Late, no massage, and we paid for everything. Refused to pay for the booking at checkout. Villa Toilet Leaked, and Air conditioner in the bedroom broke down on the last day. Reported it in the morning prior to leaving for the day, came back and it appeared to be fixed, but within an hour it was not working again. Reported it and took 3 hours for someone to come and look at it. Was offered another villa at 2230 that night, by that time we were hot and tired, and couldn't be bothered to relocate all our stuff only having to check out the next morning.
We could hear all the going on's in the villa above and next to us.... There are certain things you don't want to hear if you get my drift.
Positives: Was blown away by the size, Breakfast was fit for a king and the bed was to die for.
Overall, very expensive for the issues we had.

Our first time to Bali and wonderful memories. Our villa was perfect. The staff was wonderful and friendly. Breakfast each morning was a delight , our little chats and stories. We organised 2 cooking classes, one in the villa and the other in the sister villas in Jimbaran. The chef was exceptional. The whole experience was personal and perfect. The advice and suggestions we were given by Kanishka's staff was very informative such as where to shop and dine and not at all from a business perspective. This was genuine. The location was also great. Everything within reach but slightly away from the real busy everyday etc....Our whole experience has been perfect. Thank you every one at Kanishka Villas.

the villas were fantastic , the butlers were very professional, the office staff were so helpful and very polite. The only small problem we had was the pool was very cold next time will ask for villa with more sun.

We stayed here for 4 nights and although it is nice it is expensive.

Positives: beautiful inside, large for 2 people, walk to the end of the street and there are a lot of shops, bali deli close by and a few good restaurants around, breakfast was really good.

Negatives: Our bed was so hard that we should have just slept on the floor, the Wi-Fi didn't work - we bought this up multiple times and it still wasn't fixed, the shower pressure wasn't very good and our safe was open when we came back one day.

My husband and I stayed at Kanishka Villas from May 5th until May 10th, 2014. We originally booked the One Bedroom Jacuzzi Suite which we enjoyed for 2 nights and then found there was a vacancy in the private pool villa so we upgraded for an extra US$100 per night. The Jacuzzi villas were lovely and we enjoyed happy hour with our wine and bintang amid the bubbles each afternoon but if you can spare the extra money I would highly recommend the pool villas. They are so spacious and absolutely gorgeous.
While we did not receive our welcome massage, we did receive a delicious drink on arrival, and tropical fresh fruit arrangement in our villa. We also had our beds turned down and mosquito nets untied daily also home-made pieces of cake were delivered each evening along with the most beautiful smiles! We would highly recommend Kanishka villas and would certainly stay again.
If you are after any supplies, the Bintang supermarket is very close and the best value. We would also recommend changing your money there as there is a very safe money changer where you will not have any issues at all. Avoid the money changers close to the villa who offer great rates - they should be magicians! Thanks again to the lovely staff at Kanishka, we had a holiday to remember forever...

The impeccable staff at Kanishka villas made the stay seamless from the start with constant and friendly communication. The stylish villas are everything you could want in Seminyak and the pictures in the gallery are exactly what the villas look like, modern, spacious and very comfortable with plenty of natural light. We had a beautiful breakfast with different choices each morning brought to our villas. It was a fantastic stay and the best experience for guests as there are plenty of local restaurant recommendations, as well as shopping and places of interest close by. I highly recommend and would stay here again, was so impressed and hope to try the Jimbaran villas . Thanks Kanishka for the experience and for the incredibly accommodating and warm staff every day, especially at the front desk!
