“Clean and Excellent Services”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Stayed for 2 nights at jacuzzi room no 5A and my first impression saw my room was amazed with the room design. The room was clean and the air condition is cold enough.
I must give a 10 for their staff services and fast respond when ran out of hot water for my room.
Breakfast was brought to our room every morning.
The only disappointed is small water to fill jacuzzi took more than 1 hour and not enough hot water.
Villas location is perfect near Seminyak Road with lots of shops and restaurants.

We booked with an after school holiday deal for six days and weren't disappointed. Our pool villa Number 13 (Maybe unlucky for some) was spacious,opened planed and well appointed. The four poster bed was very comfy and not hard like most beds seem to be throughout Asia. Maybe spend a bit of money on some quality towels my only small criticism. Our breakfast which we ordered the day before was delivered on time and was just delightful and a great range to chose from. The staff were always warm and friendly and always willing to help with every query and made a number of phone calls for us, organizing tours and restaurant reservations for us. The shopping was quite upmarket with a lot of little boutiques and great eateries within easy walking distance. Had a great time and would stay again.

Found a great deal on a hotel website for this place and hence opted for their 1 bedroom jacuzzi villa. At the price that I paid, the villa was super value for money. Our villa was on the 2nd floor with a 1 bedroom villa underneath us, we couldn't see below but we could hear them when they talked. The villa had a patio with a jacuzzi and 2 deck chairs + an open air dining area covered by a canopy. Even though the villa was close to the buzz, it was far away from all the noise, we never had any trouble. Though there was some construction going on in the villas opposite the reception, so somebody staying around that area may find it noisy.

The room was big, the bed was a 4 poster with net for mosquitoes. We had a wardrobe, a TV, and a mini-bar. Because the room was big and tall, it did get a bit hot in the afternoons even with the aircon on. The one -ve was the lighting was too dim even at full power, may be one bright light would set that right.

The bathroom was big with separate bathing area. The towels were a bit tired and up for change. They did provide basic toiletries. I did spend 2 whole days trying to locate the switch for the wash basin lights only to realize that they were under the sink!

The jacuzzi was big enough for 2 people and in good condition.

The major -ve was that we were served the wrong breakfast on 2 out of the 3 days and all 3 days the eggs and the coffee were cold by the time they delivered it to our room (which was the farthest from their kitchen). They surely need to invest in better technology to delivery food hot instead of carrying it in a local made straw basket. We opted to eat breakfast out on last 2 days. The service was slow (the people were very nice though, very polite and courteous), we called for help with the locker and the man didn't show up for 30-40 mins.

The villa did have a nice charm, was adequate for us couple who like to roam about rather than staying in a hotel/resort, so worked perfectly. If I can get this place a bit cheaper without the option of breakfast I'll take it again.

Room Tip: The rooms with jacuzzi are on 2nd floor so if you can't quite climb, then opt for the 1 bedroom...

Let me start in a positive attitude by saying that the reception staff are all extremely kind and charming to the extreme (I recall specifically the villa manager Kariana was incredibly helpful. We stayed in a 2bedroom Kanishka Villa in Bali during mid-July, unfortunately tainting our experience of our first time visit to the beautiful island.

While the setup of the villa is spacious and (for lack of a more appropriate word) tropical - meaning the entire sitting area is open-air with a jungle growing on top of you - the 'acting' general manager of the hotel was appallingly rude. This seems to be a common opinion among those who have crossed her path.

The carpeting, bedding, upholstery, tables chairs, towels are a few years old, and the years have taken their toll on them. The in-villa pool has a charming waterfall (which you can turn off if you don't like sleeping to the sound of Niagra Falls), however due to the jungle growing adjacent and directly on top of the pool, a multitude of stray leaves make their way into the water. Which means that the in-villa pool ends up resembling more of a dirty pond if you don't request its cleaning several times a day.

The bathrooms are spectacular although the water pressure could be a little stronger, and breakfast does get delivered to your villa dining table if you request it, which guests will enjoy if they get to it before the island insects discover there is a free feast laid out for the taking.

Despite all the above the stay was comfortable and we were content, however watch out for the mosquitos as they are on a mission to make you look like you have a case of the hives after about an hour of chilling outdoors.

Most disconcerting was the attitude of the 'acting' general manager, who handled our request for early checkout in the most unpleasant of manners, both insulting us by telephone and unabashedly trashing her training in any school of customer service that could possibly exist. But that story is for a different site.

Next on the list was the unfortunate construction noise coming from 3 feet away from our door, where new villas were being either constructed or renovated and the construction workers were particularly rowdy with both their voices and their machines. So we were witness to a dramatic rendition of an Indonesian radio drama series from 7am in the morning onwards.

Ultimately, the villa is spacious, located on a nice street that goes on and on and on and is host to great cafe/restaurants while being a few minutes away from one of the nicest streets in Seminyak called Oberoi street. And yes the Oberoi hotel is on that street, hence the name.

I'd recommend a stay here if you are on budget and have a big family since the dining room seats 6 and the living room up to 8.

My friends and I stayed at Kanishka for three nights in June. We were originally staying at Jimbaran Bay but felt that we should also experience the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. Our villa was amazing and it was an oasis of calm and luxury. We really appreciated that the breakfast was delivered to our room daily by the ever so friendly and competent staff. Our villa had its own pool and was wonderful and spacious. I am already looking forward to our next visit at Kanishka Villas.

We booked the private pool villa and were amazed at the quality of accommodation. Central location, modern and clean facilities, amazing breakfast and wonderful afternoon treats. The staff were very helpful and were more than happy to do research and phone calls for you.

The location is so central that on the same road you can eat, shop, do yoga and have a massage (cheap and deluxe) within minutes.

Only negative is replacement of towels and coffee/tea after clean up but a quick phone call to reception and staff were happy to accommodate. And, we also had some neighbours having 3am domestics but this is no fault of the staff.

Well worth your investment!

We stayed in the 1 bedroom pool villa. The room was beautiful, a great mix of indoor-outdoor space. Breakfast coming to the room everyday was also wonderful, and the staff were very friendly and willing to help out and suggest things to see and do.
