“"Relaxing and Peaceful"”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

This is definitely a very comfortable and quiet hotel to stay in.The boutique hotel accommodated us with the super early check in and a great breakfast. We were escorted to our villa, BIDADARI villa ( meaning: ANGEL VILLA) and found out it was a very spacious and comfortable. The room already cool from the air conditioning and the path was decorated with nice flower and lovely garden, on top also a hanging garden. Decorated with Balinese antique doors and a mix of chinese, peranakan and colonial tiles, the room really feel like an old charm with modern amenities. The fountain in front of our room and in the reception area with water feature, puts a nice water trickle effect and setting the tone of peace and quiet. It turns out, our villa have our own private pool, a nice pool, where we can soak in the sun while sitting in the water and looking the big swimming pool in the distance. The Balinese painting inside our villa was also amazing along with other antique furniture, really set the mood to stay longer.
We end up adding 2 more nights staying in this boutique villa, and we tried the Mimpi Villa (meaning DREAM Villa)- A Balinese Kingdom penthouse with private Jacuzzi and an amazing mountain and rice fields view in the distance; Further, another night at the MANJA Villa (meaning PAMPERRED Villa) - A Chinese Emperor penthouse with the same amazing view.
Our breakfast was served in our dining room in both penthouses and was good. The villa was closed to the best restaurant, and we managed to try Mamasan and Metis for dinner based from the Front Office staffs recommendations. They also have a shuttle to seminyak area or to Petitenget beach, which is about 10 minutes away. They also wors with a great cab company, in fact, our best cabs of our trip were called from AQUA OCTAVIANA.
All in all, a great, artistic place, super relaxing, comfy, and beautifully peaceful, would definitely return and stay here again ...

I went with my partner for a short getaway and checked into this very serene place. Quiet and far from the hustle of other parts of Bali. It is difficult to get around without a taxi so if you are the type who likes walking around exploring this might not be the best option. Service was excellent. Breakfast served straight from the kitchen hot. Staffs were ever ready. I was very happy with the stay. There is a small pool in the villa and the workers will immediately hand you some towels when they see you preparing to swim. Bali is a place where service is really satisfying making you feel like home. For people like me who loves the idea of lingering around relaxing and just let time pass by and enjoy the romance with your partner this is a perfect place. Came back from Bali feeling more relaxed than ever especially with the hospitality of this hotel.

My first impressions weren't good: major construction going on (although we couldn't hear any noise from our room), almost no signage (we thought we were at the wrong place!) and a very poor road leading to the establishment.

But once we settled in, it really wasn't a bad experience. The pool was absolutely lovely to cool down in. Breakfast was adequate. Only got wi-fi in the dining area, nothing in the rooms. And it was very very slow when we used it (we later discovered the staff is downloading stuff and watching videos).

You have to travel to Seminyak by taxi, but the staff always arranged this for us without any problems.

The rooms were very comfortable, very clean - with a modern feel. It was a nice surprise that the staff baked us a honeymoon cake - it was delicious.

Overall, a good budget stay in Seminyak.

We chose Aqua Villa for the first two nights of our trip. You need a taxi or scooter to get to Seminyak but it's quick and very cheap. And because it's away from the city centre it's very nice and quiet. Good swimming pool, breakfast could be a little bit better but was sufficient for us (scrambled eggs, toast, fruit). The room is very spacious and clean, and because every room is in a different cabin there is no noise from your neighbours. The food for dinner comes in from somewhere along the road, it's very tasty and not expensive. Massage is very good as well. Staff is helpful and friendly. All in all a perfect price-quality balance!

Reviewed 22 September 2013

Superficially this seems like a nice place but we certainly won't be going back. It has a nice garden and nice pool, but any tranquility is shattered by truly unpleasant noise from the adjacent construction work that lasts the entire day and is will seemingly be going on until the end of 2013. You can still hear them in the rooms out the back, although it wasn't quite so loud there. The rooms themselves are fine; not amazing but clean and functional. Western-style breakfasts were pretty poor; didn't try the Indonesian breakfast but I imagine it would be a considerably better choice. This place is relatively cheap, but because of its location, we ended up having to shell out more and more money for taxi rides just to get into Seminyak, which is about 5km away. (The taxi ride only costs 2 or 3 dollars, but it adds up, and if you are the sort of traveller who likes to get around by walking this is probably not for you.) They have an airport transfer service, but it seemed more expensive than it should have been, and the guy was late, so catching a taxi would probably have been a better idea. Overall, I would not recommend this place; too many things that grated on me.

We stayed 3 night with my mum for short break and this place was everything we wanted and needed. For those who are not looking for luxury and golden chandeliers this is a place where you find peace quite exotic relaxing atmosphere with wonderful friendly staff great continental or traditional breakfast included in price of accommodation. The pool is clean n water is just right. There is a renovation going on next door bit the whole time we were staying the noise was minimal and not disturbing at all. Balinese massage in these place is a must and if crave to hit the town the taxi will take you in seminyak in about 10min trip for 50.000 ruphia ($3) i dont think i would bring very small children as except pool there isnt much entertainment for kids (older then 7yo will be fine here though). Each room does have it's own little fridge tv choice to rent DVD and some movies from reception for small fee. If hungry there is a take away menu for lunch/dinner reasonable prices n choice from Italian to steaks n Thai n Indonesian meal.
I will most definitely come back and stay longer. Loved this place :)

We stayed here for 3 nights and found it very good, the staff were excellent and very helpful, the included breakfast was really good.Even though this place was a couple of km from the centre a taxi only cost $2.there is a new construction, which is nearly complete, at the front of the property.But as all the Rooms are at the back of the property there is no disturbance from the construction. Also during the day there was minimal noise so lounging around the pool was still relaxing. I would definatly recommend this place and I would return again
