“Relaxing and peaceful”
Reviewed 14 December 2012

We love to stay at a villa in Seminyak when we go to Bali but they usually have a couple of small flaws. At the Seminyak Icon villas it's like someone sat down and figured out to fix those flaws.

Many villas in Bali have the kitchen/living/dining area as an open outdoor room. While this is an attempt to replicate the traditional living areas of Balinese style homes, at dusk it will have you running for the safety of the bedroom as the mosquitos arrive. The Seminyak Icon has solved this by installing sliding doors in the living area so during the day you can open them up and enjoy the freedom of outdoor living and at night close them and enjoy a meal and view of the pool in air-conditioned comfort.

Likewise many villas in Bali have an outdoor shower/bathroom. Once again the mosquitos will have you running the gauntlet every visit. The bathroom in the Seminyak Icon one-bedroom villa has a small open skylight on one side so that you still get natural light and fresh air but is cleverly covered at the top with an insect screen.

The other thing that is often a nuisance in a villa (and any hotel room for that matter) is the mini-bar. After a big splurge at Bali Deli or Bintang Supermarket it's hard to remember which drinks in the fridge are yours and which are the part of the mini-bar. How does the Seminyak Icon solve this problem? They give you a fridge stocked with drinks (including two Bintangs) for free! We we there for six days and didn't even get through them all!

The staff at the Icon are fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Ronald and Mena on the front desk speak excellent English and arranged restaurant reservations and transport when we needed it. The villas are tastefully decorated and the bathroom is a good size with separate bath and shower. The breakfast choices are amazing (you won't need lunch!). It's a short walk to the Bali Deli and a Periplus book store. The only downside is that the road the villas are on is a little rough. The villas are on Jalan Bali Deli next door to the Kamuela Villas. A few taxi drivers have trouble finding the road so direct them to Jalan Kunti (pronounced Koonty) off Jalan Sunset and then take the first right. It was a wonderful place to stay and we would definitely go back.

We stayed at the Seminyak Icon with our 2 year old in November for 6 nights. We were a little unsure about going as it is new and there wasn't many reviews on trip advisor and as we travelled with a child I wanted something a very good standard. Located in the street behind Bali Deli, this place is a great find. Only opened for 3 months its great to stay somewhere that is brand new. The staff couldn't be more helpful. Anything we wanted they tried to organise for us, the free shuttle anywhere is seminyak is a really great asset to the hotel.
I noticed the staff checked the pool chemicals as mentioned on their web page, which is good to know given we brought our little boy and we spent lots of time in there. The room was cleaned daily the staff did cute little things like tucking my little boys teddy into the linen! Cute!
Thank you so much for a great stay!

We spent a magical 5 nights at the Seminyak Icon. what made it so wonderful was the way that ALL of the staff treated my husband and I with such warmth and joy and nothing was ever to much trouble for them. The massages were fantastic and breakfast was delicious. Every time we left our villa we always returned to find it had been serviced (many times throughout the day).
We stayed in a 1 bedroom Villa which was of a very high standard, and look forward to hopefully returning with friends to stay in the 3 Bdr villa.
Thank you to all the staff for making our trip a wonderful experience.

Since this was our first vacation in Bali, we did not know exactly what to expect. Our check-in agents, Mena & Tina made us feel very welcome. We found our villa to be brand new, clean, fully furnished, beautifully constructed, and well-designed. Throughout our stay, the staff ensured that our stay in Seminyak Icon was a pleasurable experience. They were unobtrusive, flexible with our schedule, thorough, and detail-oriented. For being in such a prime location, I was surprised at how quiet and peaceful the villas were. We appreciated consistently comfortable slumbers.

What especially impressed me at Seminyak icon was each staff member. They were all very well dressed, polite and never failed to greet us with a smile on their faces. Each one was so helpful in answering all the questions I had at any time of day. We appreciated the 24-hour security, too. Every representative helped me coordinate dining arrangements, spa visit, and transportation to Seminyak Square with so much ease. All representatives could anticipate our needs, helpful, and pleasant to speak with.

I would like to thank each and every one of you for your superior guest services and for making us both feel welcome. Your true hospitality was a class act. Your exceptional level of service is not easy to find at many other hotels across the world.

Will definitely return!

We spent 1 week with the lovely team at the Seminyak Icon earlier this month and we couldn't have been moore pleased with our choice. The accommodation is absolutely sublime. We stayed in a 1 bedroom pool villa which was brand new, sparkling clean and plenty of room for 2. The pool is large enought to swim a few strokes in and essential for cooling off in the Balinese heat. The bed is king size and ultra comfortable. We has 7 nights of unbroken and fabulous sleep during our stay.

The standard of the villa is very high, The fridge is stocked with soft drinks on your arrival and water is replenished daily. In fact every time we left the villa, the room was refreshed, towels replaced. We honestly did not have to lift a finger.

The bathroom is huge with a powerful rainshower as well as a large bathtub. The bathroom is enclosed but has the feeling of being outdoors. Slippers and kimono style robes were also provided.

We had breakfast delivered each morning to our villa and tried several different options. The fruit salads were really tasty and varied but our favourites were the banana pancakes and the eggs benedict. The fresh juices and Bali coffee were also excellent.

We did use the spa during our visit. We has an aromatherapy massage included in our package for the room but it was so professionally done and such a relaxing experience that we returned for another one a couple of days later. The spa itself is luxurious and serene with a wide numbver of treatments available at reasonable prices.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The Icon offers an airport transfer service to their guests at no extra change. Being collected in a lovely shiny van with cool drinks, cold towels and air con was just the welcome needed after our long journey. We were also able to make use of the driver during our stay for drop off at locations in Seminyak.

The team also assisted us in helping us book some tennis courts at another hotel nearby plus they have an affiliation with a nearby gym if you want to work out.

The location is good, it's far enough away from the bustling centre of Seminyak to allow you to have some peace and quiet, but close enough to the beach clubs, shops and restaurants when you wish. Being close to Bali Deli was a big plus too.

Simply put, nothing was too much trouble and I would go back to the Seminyak Icon in a heartbeat, if ever we return to Bali.

Nice villa tucked away in a quiet alley in seminyak. Short walk to the shops in Seminyak. Very near Bali Deli, an excellent supermarket which has a huge selection of both local and imported snacks.

Service was impeccable and breakfast was not too bad. Room service was very reasonably priced and the food tasted good too. Drinks in the fridge were complimentary and bottled water was refilled everyday. Wonderful touch.

The pool was great and so was the day bed. Pictures from the hotel's website are an accurate representation of what you would be getting from the villa. Not many places do actually live up to their photos, but seminyak icon definitely did.

Seminyak Icon is gorgeous. New, clean, quality fittings, comfortable bed. Sparkling clean pool - exactly like the photos on it's website. Front desk was always wonderfully polite, and helped us with a driver - who was fantastic.

The only draw back was there was nowhere big enough in the court yard to sun bake for long periods of time, but laying on the gorgeous day bed in the breeze made up for that. Also there was no chopping board and minimal kitchen apparatus - but I am sure the kitchen would have helped us out there had we of asked - they were very helpful with every other request we made. We didnt use the spa facilities.

We loved walking from our villa to try new places to eat, and drink and shop, and on other days our driver took us touring the beautiful sites of Bali. The white water rafting was definitely a highlight!

I would definitely stay here again, and have recommended it to our friends. We scored an opening special so the price was good too.
