Reviewed 6 April 2014

Just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay at Bonsai Villas, Seminyak. Fantastic Japanese designed Private Villas in great Semiyak location. Facilities are great and all staff incredibly friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Bonsai Villas and could highly recommend to those seeking privacy and location. All staff are very welcoming and will assist you with a great smile and genuine caring attitude. Thank you Rudi, Benny, Muss and all the team for making our stay so memorable.
We sincerely hope to meet with you all again soon.

We read great reviews on tripadvisors hence we decided to book a villa from Rudy directly thru email. We stayed for 3 nights and upon arrival we were shock as how spacious it was, check in was a breeze settle it in our villa within 5 minutes. We were served warm towels and a glasses of orange juice.

The bedroom was spacious even we an extra bed in it, air con with ceiling fans work really well no complains we all had a very good night sleep. Every morning, the room will be cleaned by the very efficient stuff and whenever we returned to our rooms, we will be greeted by cute animal towels sitting on our bed.

The only complains we had is that the bathroom gets pretty dark during the night as it is 'sort of' outdoors, but we made do with it with the portable hand light provided. If you are staying in a group of 3 be warned that the water heater usually last till the second person. But we made do, but making the third person wait a little longer before she showers.

The staff and management are really helpful, they would guide us to the best place to eat/shop/sight see, they are not out to make commission out of you. The staff were so kind to drop us at the nearby massage shop in their bikes for free, whenever we want to go somewhere they will hire us a cab so that we don't have to go out. Futhermore, when we have our morning swim in the pool they will prepare us a hot cup of cappuccino on the house.
I recommend that you book a driver provided by them for a day, I regret not remembering his name, but thanks to him we had a great time exploring Bali the Balinese way.

Be warned that they don't serve breakfast which is a shame, but bintang supermarket is located nearby so stock up in your cereals and eggs! As it is located in the heart of seminyak we are surrounded by restaurant and lots of boutique so there isn't a dull day.

We highly recommend Bonsai, and we will surely return when we come back to Bali to recharge our batteries.

Room Tip: If Wi-fi is essential stay in villa nearer to the office as signals are stronger.

We both fell in love with these lovely villas in the heart of Seminyak. The staff and management were so friendly, happy and helpful and did everything they possibly could to ensure our stay was the best it could be. We loved our villa as it was large and well set out, beautifully furnished and decorated and although it is just behind the main road it is very private and quiet. We swam each day in the pool directly in front of our villa and hired a driver for two half days (organised by Rudi the manager) who took us to Ubud for the day and also for a very memorable trip to some of the best surfing beaches I have ever seen. The Bintang supermarket is a few doors away which was so convenient as we bought fresh tropical fruit for breakfast each day and enjoyed many nice, cold, local ' Bintang' beers which were so cheap and so nice to enjoy after a busy day out. We highly recommend Bonsai and will return.

Room Tip: Ask for a mosquito net as although the rooms are sprayed and coils provided it is nice to have a mo...

Bonsai offers lovely 1 bedroom villas surrounding a quiet courtyard garden .it has a small kitchen and a really lovely sitting area. Both the sitting area and bathroom are outdoor, so you will appreciate the mosquito coils and the staff will spray each evening. If you dont want the spray you have to tell them, though.

In noisy, crowded south Bali this place really is a hidden gem. It is hard to find, though, but thats no different than mosr small places in Bali. Make sure you haemorrhage the phone number fervour taxi driver!

There are a few drawbacks, the hot water was a bit unreliable, but the staff were so dedicated and worked until theygotitfixed. The staff were actually also a highlight, they were so friendly and cheerfully helpful.
Otherwise this was a great place, we would have stayed longer and I would definitely return!

We stayed for 3 nights at Bonsai villas in seminyak the villa is very well located near Bintang super market. The rooms were huge, the kitchen and bathroom were both open, meaning you can shower under the stars. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The air conditioning worked well, the only complaint was the a/c was operation lights were very bright at night, luckily we travel with duct tape.
The pool area was very good. The guys working here were very helpful.
Would recommend.
