This is a great villa about 100m (2 minute walk) from the beach. Just like in the description. In fact the villa is exactly like they have described it, which is not always the case. Neil, the owner had been very prompt in responding to our queries and even though wasn't physically present at the villa had everything managed perfectly to the last detail. Everything that one would need was thought through, e.g. 2 mobile phones at disposal for making local calls with essential numbers saved.
We would highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a posh hide out in Seminyak, Bali.
Pure luxury, a hidden oasis in the heart of Seminyak and a short stroll to the beach where you can watch the sunset every night. The villa has everything you require for the perfect holiday, on entering you find an outdoor area with seating, pool, lounges and of course your own pool! Inside the bi-fold doors open onto the outdoor area, perfect for entertaining.
Upstairs to the amazing huge bedrooms with their own bathrooms. The Excellence team are there for you everyday and come in every morning to cook a breakfast of your choice and to tidy the villa, then head out to enjoy the scenic life of Seminyak.
Close to all the amazing Seminyak restaurants, a short beach stroll to Ku De Ta, hire a bike, ( they can organise) or just call a taxi. The villa comes with 2 mobile phones for local calls so getting a taxi is easy, the address of Villa Kipas is pre-programmed with the taxi company. How easy does that make it! especially if you don't know your way around.
So if your looking for a Villa, a hidden oasis in the heart of Seminyak then book Villa Kipas, it will make your holiday perfect.
My partner & I stayed here for 10 days in May & just gotta say that it was fabulous!
Apart from the actual Villa itself, which is truly gorgeous, & has everything on hand for you to use, such as insect repellent, sunscreen, umbrellas, power adapters, complimentary massages, shower wash, shampoo etc, there is nothing too big that the staff can't help you with. They think of everything to ensure that your stay goes smoothly.
We had a couple of touristy days organised for us after letting them know specifically what we wanted to do & see, so all we had to do was be ready for pick up each morning by the driver that had been arranged for us.
This of course costs a little extra, but was well worth it, as we felt well looked after.
Gede, our assigned butler was just lovely & can cook a mean omelette, & cleans it all up afterwards! We didn't have to raise a finger, which enabled our stay there to be 1 of complete relaxation.
Cleaning & maintenance (pool cleaning etc) is taken care of daily too.
The beach & many, many cafes & restaurants are very close by, so walking anywhere wasn't a big deal either. We got to know a few locals nearby, which was just terrific.
I particularly loved feeding the fish in the Villa ponds each day. They're just like puppies, they swam over to me each morning when I went out to feed them, they were so cute!
The highlight of our stay there however was when my partner asked me to marry him outside under the verandah, near the pool, so we won't forget this particular holiday or Villa in a hurry.
Special thanks to the owner Neil, who was so helpful via email prior to our arrival, by providing so much local information & suggestions of restaurants & places we might like to check out whilst there.
All in all, we had a terrific & memorable stay!
We had the most beautiful holiday here, from the moment we booked communication was clear and the process was smooth. Everything from the return transfers ; daily breakfast ; the staff welcome was joy. The villa is stunning, one of the best I have seen. The proximity to the beach is fantastic and there are an abundance of restaurants nearby. We felt very secure in the villa and although there was a bit of road noise it did not worry us at all.
Villa Kipas took my breath away from the moment I walked in the door. Form the koi pond stone path entrance to the lagoon pool and outdoor shower, there is natural beauty at every turn. The staff is wonderful and Gede, the private chef, made us droolworthy breakfasts every morning. The location couldn't be better as everything seemed to be just a short walk away. We'd love to stay again and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
I have just returned from a week long stay at Villa Kipas with my family. Friends also stayed in adjoining villas- so we had our own privacy- own pools, kitchens, bathrooms and space- while still enjoying the holiday together!
Villa Kipas is beautifully appointed with the owners giving thought to your every last need. The staff are friendly and very helpful- always smiling and making our stay "personal'! The location is fabulous!!! Start the day with a wander 2 minutes to the beach, return for an in-house massage and a swim in our private pool, followed by breakfast cooked by the staff in the villa. By the way- the food is fabulous!! It's hard to come home to no Nasi goreng for breakfast! They even sourced ikan bilis for us to enjoy.
The day is then open for some adventure trips (which the staff organised for us!) maybe a little wander through the shops (just a few blocks away) or a day by the pool. The "kids" loved having wifi, TV and movies at their disposal too! It was a wonderful holiday for a family of young adults and us oldies! Time well spent together as a family and with friends- surrounded by everything we needed and more!
We are now planning next years trip!!
Neil & Julie made our stay delightful- from the warm welcome by the staff, complimentary massage. Everything in the Villa has been thought out, no need to bring sunscreen, insect repellant & even hats ,- its all supplied- its the little things that count. The cold water fountain was ideal , no need to buy our own bottled water.The restaurants & sight seeing destinations that were suggested were great, 2 local mobile phones we used were very helpful, The staff were very attentive & always willing to assist. I would highly recommend Villa Kipas, we will be back
