“Great atmosphere and customer service but could use some fixing work”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

The photos on the website are a good representation of the BVilla, a nice bunch of people working there who is always ready to make our experience even better from making reservations at restaurants to organizing land transfers. Love the door-step pool and loads of sun from day to night.

Things that stood out for us:
1. Pesticide at the evening free us from mozzies-bites.
2. Kombi parked at the door step helped to recognized the villa location.
3. Super location that is closeby to Potato Head beach club and many more eateries.
4. Super generous bottles of lemongrass toiletries - rocks!
5. Pool is well-maintained and clean, well-lighted at night as well.
6. Love the water cooler that is disguised as a lamp shade - how clever!

Some suggestions
1. Bathroom is too covered up and dark at the moment - as I was expecting an open-air/ exposed bathroom (due to my last stay at another villa).
2. Shower facilities could be improved as the shower head wasn't working well.
3. Aircon could be a bit stronger as it does not cool the room enough despite running at full capacity (pretty subjective thought).

Overall, it is a nice place to stay for the price one pay - do give it a try!

Stayed there for a long weekend with some girlfriends. The bathroom was huge and the bedroom too BUT the small touches needed to make it comfy were missing.... No face or hand towels unless we asked. One morning when I took a shower and reached for my bath towel, it looked like it had seen better days.... Should have been used to clean the floors a year ago... and not dry me up.

There was mold on the wall heading to the bathroom.

Saving graces would have been the strong water pressure, ample hot water. Huge bottle of toiletries which were divine and the breakfast. It was close to the restaurants, a given 5 minute walk.. so that was a plus point.....

But for me, I would not return. I am sure I can get much better value elsewhere....

Dear KMSM44,

Greetings from the place to b!

Thank you for choosing bvilla for your Bali holiday and for taking the time to write your comment on tripadvisor.

Happy to know that you enjoyed the freshly cooked breakfast in the privacy of your villa and the fantastic location that gave you access to a wide array of Bali’s delicious grub. I’m glad you noticed the generous size of toiletries, which is one of our efforts to be friendly to the environment.

I do apologize for the inconveniences caused by the housekeeping and maintenance issues. We do strive to provide the ideal facilities and best consistent service to our guests. We are currently taking tangible actions to improve our villa complex, including its engineering and cleanliness.

Once again, we highly appreciate your feedback. I am confident that after our internal revamp, the overall bvilla experience will be elevated.

bcool,

Djaiman Toni

This is our 2nd trip to Bali and we had stayed at an amazing villa (uma sapna) the 1st time. We've had friends who have stayed in B villa before and we managed to get a good rate via a special online offer so we chose to stay here this time.
The villa looked just like it does in the picture, beautiful zen-inspired design. That's when the novelty wore off...
The bathroom looked dated and it looked liked it wasn't cleaned very well. Simple little things like toothbrushes and hand towels were not provided / refilled and i had to call to ask for it. When we took a shower in the bath tub, there were stuff that looked like 'oil stains' that came floating to the surface, that definitely put me off deciding to take a soak in the tub.
Other than that, it was an alright stay, it is always nice to have the pool at your bedroom's doorsteps and their pool was huge! Breakfast was passable with the staff coming in to cook for you in the mornings. There was free wifi too and a big telly to keep you occupied when you're lazing in the room. Staffs are friendly and they do try hard to please, though i dont understand the lack of amenities and they do need to clean the bathroom a little more thoroughly. When you're paying USD250/ night, really...
Its near to 'Eat Street' in seminyak, just a 5 min walk out to Ultimo. Do give Trattoria a try too, value for money Italian and Murano Spa for a really great and good value spa experience!
