“Perfect Balinese Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

people found this review helpful

We have just returned from the most amazing two weeks in Bali and the reason why this holiday was so fabulous had a lot to do with our stay at Banyan Estate. I was celebrating my 50th birthday with 23 friends and family - 12 of which stayed at Banyan and we could not have found a more suitable, friendly, professional and accommodating location.

This property felt like we were in Bali!! It is not the newest property but it is a majestic well- loved plantation style two storey home with two separate guest rooms. I think the land size would be approximately 1.5 acres so we never felt crowded and the open outdoor living which lead onto a huge paved area around the 20m pool was everything we could have asked for including the separate Bale for our daily massage and grooming services that we organised to come in each day.

Our whole experience from my initial contact with Aki (the owner) to meeting the amazing staff was just so easy and so welcoming. Nothing was a problem and every question or request was met quickly and easily.

We spent two weeks in Bali in 2012 which was the reason we returned for my birthday this year and none of my guests had ever been and they are now totally converted to this special paradise having experienced the kindness, thoughtfulness and helpfulness of the staff at Banyan. Everyone felt very safe with the security provided and we all felt very special with staff to cater for our every wish. We did not have to lift a finger.

Special thanks to "Charlie from Bali" the driver we had - his local knowledge, amazing driving skills in this chaotic country of traffic and his cheeky personality made all of our outings first rate but then he would even go to the shops for a quick rescue mission for us if we needed anything!

Special thanks also must go to our most "amazing" chef Dayu! In the two weeks we stayed we actually only dined out in the evening ONCE at the world class "Kudeta" (do not miss this dining experience) because her menu choices and meals were simply fantastic. We certainly did dine out during the day but it was just fabulous to be able to come home and just relax in our own private resort with dinner already being prepared!

The organisation of my 50th birthday was just EASY!! The staff decorated the villa for me (it looked magical), the food started at lunchtime and was continuous during the remainder of the celebration, I organised the staff to stay on longer during the evening to help with my guests - even providing a 'nanny' service for our grandson so our daughter and her husband could just relax. Charlie from Bali even drove me around a few days earlier to help find the most excellent and delicious cake for the occasion.

This was a holiday of indulgence and Banyan became our family home for this wonderful two weeks and the staff and Aki helped make this happen.

I cannot finish without thanking Agung, Wayan, Nyoman, Nengah and Iluh who helped look after the house and made us all feel so special. I would also like to thank the other staff as well but I do not know their names.

Thanks Aki for sharing Banyan Estate with us – it is certainly a slice of paradise and it will be a holiday memory that we will all treasure forever!!!

“A thoroughly enjoyable experience which could be exceptional”

Banyan Estate is an experience to be had, the staff are very helpful and accommodating and the cook is quite exceptional having stayed in 3 villas in Bali thus far. The pool, garden and space are just magnificent. The Bale is to die for and it is generally very well maintained. My only reservations are the open air bathrooms which could do with more attention and netting to stave off the mosquitoes, the beds which with their netting are a little claustrophobic if you are used to none or a proper four poster bed with netting and by far the air conditioning and tvs generally which could do with updating. But all in all a very enjoyable stay and experience!

Liked best: Space, location in the Umulas (away from the hubub), tranquility and cook. Colonial Balinese style. Garden and pool fantastic!
Liked least: Air conditioning in rooms is antiquated, too cold or not cold enough in most rooms. Beds - should be proper 4 poster if using the netting (imperative given the location and proximity to a river). Flat screen TVs & DVDs should be in all rooms.
Travelling group: Teenagers

“Beautiful Banyan Estate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I can't thank Arki and his wonderful staff at Banyan estate enough for making our stay so fantastic. Nothing was a problem, bookings, massages, transport all organised in the blink of an eye. The Estate it self has the heart and soul of old school Bali - beautiful gardens, high thatched roofs, big bathrooms and spacious open living areas, an oasis away from the busy streets of Seminyak. I would highly recommend staying at Banyan estate.

Oh and a special mention to Dayu, the wonderful chef, your Babi Guling was truly spectacular (as was everything else you made for us)
