We had a fantastic week-long holiday at Villa Seroja. Marc and his team did everything they could to help us to enjoy our visit. Emails leading up were answered within a day and were very informative. Villa manager/driver, Budi was tremendously helpful to us, from airport pick-up, to driving us around the local area, and making pressure-free recommendations.
During our stay we went to Waterbom, local restaurants, a day-trip to Ubud (galleries, rafting, rice terrace), local shops... we highly recommend Monsieur Spoon cafe/bake shop (5 minutes from villa), and Nook restaurant (2 minutes). Other fantastic nearby restaurants include La Plancha (Seminyak beach), Ku de ta for cocktails, Hog Wild (best ribs ever!) and Scratch (every dish was amazing).
While the villa breakfast was adequate, in retrospect we would self-cater it next time or go to nearby cafes instead -- they are just so good and affordable. We did have one dinner catered (our first night) and although it was good, there are just so many amazing restaurants within 15-20 minutes drive, that this is just not needed. Tripadvisor a key guide that can be trusted on restaurants/cafe's... more takeaway menus was our one suggestion which Marc has already followed up on.
The cleaning staff was there at the perfect time each day and was very professional in their service -- no complaints. Laundry service was quick and low-cost -- a bit overly scented though!
Internet was high-speed and reliable -- we were even able to reliably stream live sports through our computers/ipads. The tv has 60 or so channels and is representative of all tastes.
The villa was fantastic value and we can't recommend it more.
This was our second stay at Villa Seroja, and once again, everything was great! The villa is extremely clean, great breakfast prepared to our liking every morning, and Budi the driver, couldn't be more polite! The location is just out of the hustle and bustle, which is a bonus if you are staying with children. Couldn't be more happy with our stay. Thanks to Marc, and the staff at Villa Seroja for another wonderful holiday stay!!
Great house - great staff. Suitable for 2 families. 10 mins from seminyak with traffic. Pool is nice and in good condition - aircon works and kitchen is useful for brekky and lunch
The villa was perfect, and is even better than the description. All amenities were provided, and we had plenty of fun in the pool with the pool toys and in the jacuzzi. The villa is always spotless thanks to the villa staff, and Budi was very helpful to all our requests. Marc was also very accommodating to our requests, from having a late check-out to the bedding arrangements. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Bali!
We stayed at Villa Seroja with two families.
Four adults and four teenagers had an amazing time.
The staff were friendly and could not do enough for you.
We used the in house chef for two dinners and at $130 AU for 8 people it was great value and great food.
Wayan made a great breakfast every morning and would adjust to our needs and times without any problem.
Budi the villa driver is EXCELLENT ! We want to adopt him. Nothing was too hard for him.
The area was quiet. The villa is on the same street as the French embassy.
The only recommendations I would make for the owner include; 1/ Purchase of a twin bed that can be separated into two single beds for the second upstairs bedroom. This will attract more families to the villa that have two children. 2/ the villa had a DVD player and some DVD's available for those times where the kids were packed out and needed some screen time. The only problem was the DVD player was not connected to the TV and didn't work as a result.
WE LOVED VILLA SEROJA AND WILL BE BACK !!!!!!

We visited Villa Seroja during our Christmas Holiday and there were 7 of us. At first, I was a little bit nervous that the villa won't look the same as the pictures online. I was extremely pleased to find out that the villa meets our expectations. All the staff is wonderful. Ms. Monalisa is very courteous and polite. The lady who cooks us breakfast is very accommodating. We ordered Indonesian breakfast, but she's still willing to make extra food (pancakes) for my children who don't eat Indonesian breakfast. Budi, the driver, is very pleasant and polite. Marc the owner is very accommodating & a pleasure to deal with. He even wrote me an e-mail after our stay to say Thank You. The whole entire experience is very satisfying and I definitely recommend Villa Seroja to our friends and family.

Like many other reviews, Budi was the standout aspect of this villa. He was patient and knowledgeable and able to recommend awesome dining experiences.
Wayan was a fantastic cook. I highly recommend the breakfast and unlimited driving options.
The villa was spacious and clean. Kids loved to dip into the pool after a sunny day out.
Small small downside was that it was pouring in the middle of the night and the power tripped, but other than that, it was pretty perfect.
