I like to spend as much time as I can in Bali and each time I'm there, I love to try out a new experience. We recently spent a few nights at the gorgeous Sahana Villas in Seminyak and we absolutely loved it!
The Sahana Villas are located in the heart of Seminyak, at walking distance from the many of the best shops and restaurants on Oberoi street. The amazing thing is that despite all the nearby hustle and bustle, the villas are very quiet and secluded.
The villas have 3 bedrooms and each bedroom has its own outdoor bathroom, which provides the tropical, exotic feeling that you want when you are staying at a villa on Bali. Adding to the tropical vibe are the beautiful joglo, the wooden house in typical Indonesian style that houses one of the three bedrooms and the open living room that I love so much. The villas are all very spacious, have a lush green garden and can easily accommodate a family of six.
Our stay at Sahana Villas came with a tasty complimentary breakfast, prepared to our wishes by the very friendly staff. Starting the day with this wonderful meal and the Balinese coffee from their own plantation in the mountain areas of Bedugul, is just magical. I loved sipping a fresh coffee while lying stretched out on one of the sun loungers by the picture perfect pool!
We flew our drone just for fun and to take some aerial pictures that highlight just how green and lush Sahana Villas are. Flying over Seminyak also clearly showed how much larger the villas at Sahana are than at other properties in the neighborhood.
In the end, from any travel experience, you remember the people. Our butler was Mia, who was so sweet and welcoming we felt like she was our Balinese mom while we were staying. In busy Seminyak, Sahana Villas are a wonderful retreat where you can kick back, relax and smell the franginpanis!
My partner and I had an amazing stay at Sahana and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Bali. The villas are conveniently located in the centre of Seminyak but set back so as to avoid any noise from the main road. You can easily walk to the best dining and shopping spots in Seminyak but there is also parking space outside the villas should you wish to drive. The staff were fantastic from the moment we arrived and we felt welcome immediately. The villa and outside area was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was fantastic and we had an amazing stay. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and will definitely be back ourselves!
My husband and our 3 children (16,19 & 21) stayed here for 3 weeks and it was absolute luxury from the moment we stepped into the villas to leaving, which we were all so sad to do. The Staff at Sahana do everything to make your stay just perfect, from making sure the place is tidy to giving you exactly what you like in the mornings for breakfast and the dinners (if you want them to) are delicious! We also felt we still had our privacy though - they know exactly how to ensure you have everything you need and still feel like it's only you at the Villa. Our kids being older, loved that they could walk straight out to so much Bali life and the oldest who was already used to driving a scooter, loved going surfing most days and having so much freedom. I could also see that it would also be great for younger kids too and considering one is so close to so much life, you are still hidden far back enough, not to be kept up from any noise. Wyan who drove us to quite a few different places was brilliant too - I felt very safe and loved driving with him as he knew all the little short cuts. Asty, Ida and so many more people here at Sahana, can also help you out with anything you want to do or know. We visited the temples, did water rafting, surfing, wakeboarding, the monkey forest, amazing sunsets and so much more and Sahana helped with everything. We had 3 weeks of bliss and not forgetting the massages - which were incredible - even our son who would never have one at home, loved the privacy of having it at the villa - we had quite a few:-) Our daughter also turned 16 years old here and all the staff came and sang for her and made a cake - she had such a great surprise with this and it made it really special. I can't praise them all enough - the kids said it was the best holiday they had had and they have been very fortunate to have some good ones. I agree it was so special and truly wonderful, as having a villa rather than a hotel, made it so much more relaxing and like a home. We will be coming back!
Stayed here for 5 nights. Absolutely loved it. Close to the main street on seminyak security in the lane way each night so you felt safe.Staff are so friendly and the villas are always kept clean. Would/will stay here again.
This villa has everything you need to have for your perfect holiday with family and kids.
Has all our expectation with 3 king sized large beds. The bathroom was awesome.
Green and love to see the kids playing around in this fresh green garden
Not too big, but perfectly fit for our daytime swimming. And they provide the pool fence too.
Has all the kitchen amenities and you can either cook your own dishes or ask the staff to cook for you. We did have great barbeque time and the staff's cook was so delicious.
Yes, they even provide a massage therapist for you. And surprisingly, they have a massage therapist that specific for baby/children. The kids love it!
The food & drink:
Every morning, the friendly staff served us fried rice and Balinese mixed rice (nasi campur Bali) for breakfast. The homemade fresh blended juice was awesome. And, you have to try their coffee. It was one of the best coffee!
It was near to almost everything. You can have the steak nearby this property. Coco Supermarket is just 3 mins walk and they have fresh vegetable and poultry as well so you can purchase it and cook it at the villa.
20 mins walk to Kudeta Beach was also great because of the street has so many shops that you can see.
There's also a nice gelato shop near this villa
Dessert, just walk across the street
We were absolutely blown away by our recent stay at Sahana Villa. The moment we arrived, we were warmly greeted by all of the staff and then introduced to our private butler Mia who was an absolute sweetheart. Our villa came with 3 impeccably decorated rooms, gorgeous indoor outdoor living space and a picture perfect pool. Overall- the property was way bigger than we imagined, and super luxurious. Thank you Sahana Villas for making our stay one of the highlights of our Bali trip!
tuck behind the hustle and bustle was our gorgeous villa sahana. The property was amazing, simple layout that allows easy living and so close to all seminyak has to offer but the best part is the people who look after you. Your bali family awaits you..... you will not be disappointed we sure weren't !
