Reviewed 27 July 2013

Stayed here for 16 nights after reading good reviews. And overall the place is pretty good. $2.50 to get a cab into Sem. Square is ok....the communal kitchen is unusable and uninviting...more like a staff room kitchen. Groundsman Nyoman the hardest worker there-well done! :) bathrooms pretty dated and basic but ok. Staff overall were nice enough but didn't bend over backwards to make sure your happy....on cruise control a little....I'd probably go back.

Quiet area of Umalas and reasonable price were the main advantages of this villa. Plus the best bit was finding Gusto gelato and Monsieur Spoon just down the road (about 15 min walk). Big construction/extension out front made surprisingly little impact as we could not hear noise in our room and they worked from 8-5. It is a little way from Seminyak but still only a $2 cab ride. Staff provided a 10am shuttle but also would phone a bluebird taxi if requested. A couple of local warungs provided a delivery service so dinner was sorted. Pool was clean, breakfast included was average, staff very friendly and honest (returning my friend's handbag after being left in common area, with passport and money intact).

his a great hotel! big room,and comfortable room, Such a good value for the Seminyak area. It's only a 3-4 minute taxi ride to any bar restaurant or each area you want to go in Seminyak.

They do provide free shutle at 10am to the shopping area or seminyak beach,and come back to villa you can stop taxi not much cost about 3$ from seminyak to villa,
road to the villa is not bad,they are fixing roads and better than ever


. They have a beautiful pool,big pool , lounge area, garden grounds, and great massages. They are also in the process of building newer rooms as well. Staff is extremely helpful and welcoming. This is a place good for haneymoon, or just a relaxing stay.

What a little gem this was, very quiet property (despite the current construction next door). It is quiet a bit hidden and it was only my sharp eye that saw the entry sign from the taxi as we were looking for it. The room was lovely and spacious, spotless and modern. The bed was super comfortable! Large bathroom with decent shower.
Due to its quiet location, it is not possible to confidently walk anywhere nearby, taxi is very cheap and the location is within the minimum taxi charge anyway.
The one thing that let them down was the towels they provided! They were very visibly stained and it was a shame. After requesting better towels there was not much difference.
Breakfast was nice, simple but good with a bit of choice.

On first impression it looks ok, it is a sweet place and the staff are great, however the rooms were tidied each morning but the shower, bench and bed side tables were not cleaned in the five days we stayed, the shower I don't think it had been cleaned in a year!
the breakfast was also dreadful, the place is very remote and you need a taxi to get even to a shop to buy anything, also the shower was a trickle of water so I couldn't wash my hair I had to go to hair dresser.
It is a pretty place and the pool is nice but really even at this price which is cheap it should be a lot cleaner.

first impression is: sleek, modern, clean. Then I scooped around my little villa and noticed that shower and bathroom a bit dingy, a couple of stains on the sheets and ants on the floor- not the end of the world. The breakfast was amazing and the staff was friendly. The location was a bit secluded from the city...so many taxi rides to and from the city for us- as we love to shop and go to the beach. The taxi drivers didn't really know the hotel by the name...make sure you remember the city and street name for the driver. But if you want an escape, this location is great. There's construction going on, but we barely felt it. All was going well for my 4 night vacation here at aqua villa bali, minus the last day of my stay where I realized my authentic apple USB was stolen! I wanted to give my iPad a final charge and as I plugged the USB in, I realized that the color was yellowed and that the little USB logo on the plug was black (which, for all apple users, you know it's gray). On top of all this, the USB didn't even WORK!!! so I was left without a USB, and couldn't charge my gadgets before my 22 hour plane ride back home. The manager pretty much denied everything and didn't offer any thing to compensate. HIDE YOUR THINGS if you are going to stay here!

Room Tip: watch out for the frogs and enormous bees!

I chose this hotel for a short overnight stay before moving onto other parts of the island.

First off, its a budget hotel, so you have to align your expectations accordingly. Nevertheless, I classify the rooms as just functional: a simple living room, sparse bathroom, and kitchen without a sink or plates and cutlery, making self catering impossible. The lighting was glaring and clinical and the decorations bare and cold. Certainly no ambience to the place.

The pool was uninviting and surrounded by a gaudy barrier meant to hide construction work.

The location is far from everything and I wouldn't know how to access any of the more lively areas or what it would cost.
