Akara Villas
Ranked #89 of 430 Speciality Lodging in Seminyak
Reviewed 16 June 2011

Four of us stayed at Akara villas in May for three nights and found it struck the perfect balance between a completely private apartment while benefitting from the services of a hotel. Close to the beach and Seminyak's fabulous shops, bars and restaurants, yet in a quiet spot away from the road.

Villa was clean, with smart decor and mod-cons including flat screen TV and iPod dock. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable with large en suites.

We also stayed at Ayanna villas in Canggu, which belongs to the same group - Divine Villas (divinevillasbali.com). This offered an equally high standard of accommodation in an area where tourism hasn't taken over a traditional way of life. A million wonderful miles from the westernisation of Kuta...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and it was absolutely beautiful! The staff were so friendly and were always willing to help..special mention to Yogi and Artha! A lovely breakfast awaited us every morning. The villla was immaculate and cleaned twice a day. Great location. All in all just a pleasure to stay at.

The staff is the friendliest and most accomodating staff I have ever met in my life. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They accepted to keep our bags for an extra night when some of us went to the Gili islands after our stay and they allowed us to use another free villa after we had checked-out for a massage and shower before heading to the airport. They were also of great help with the organisation of our day and booking of different things we needed. This was by far the best service I've ever had and I travel a lot (at least 5-6 trips per year for the last 10 years). Thanks to the staff for everything and for making our trip so enjoyable ! Location is also great: walking distance to potato head, kudeta, living room, hu'u bar... You will really enjoy your stay there...

The staff are gorgeous and made every effort to make our stay a great one. This place is private, relaxing, quiet and stunning. loads of living area, private pool and outdoor lounge area, separate living / dining/ kitchen space from bedrooms. Walking distance to shops, beach, bars and restaurants....painless pickup from airport....all went together to make our stay here a memorable one...will be back.

First time stay at Akara, after many trips to Bali.

The staff where absolutely wonderful, and made the holiday for my three boys, while for my wife and I, the location was the key ! located in the same street as some of the best restaurants I have eaten at.....Mentis, Sarong, Sardine and La Luciolas, with bars like Potato head and W Hotel on the beach either side of us, we could hit the town easily or just lounge around the wonderful Villa and be spoilt by the staff. Thanks again.....we had a wonderful two weeks.

This was our first trip to Bali, and we had a great time, we loved staying at Akara Villas, the villa was quite stunning, so quiet and private. The staff get 10 out of 10 for their service and friendliness. We loved being so central to some amazing restaurants, and it was very easy to get around. We will be back!!

We enjoyed our five days, four nights immensely. the 3 bedroom villa compound is luxuriously appointed and the well trained staff are both discreet and very capable. The design of the villa for two families with two nine year olds worked very well. The recommended in house massage therapists were very good and the villa's proximity to good restaurants [Ku de Ta, The Living Room, Sarong] and shopping make it a convenient Seminyak base.
