“Wonderful, quiet holiday”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Icon is most probably the most recent holiday villa development in Seminyak. It stands next to a slightly older set of villas and, on the other side, some waste ground where, I would expect, the next holiday villas will be built. The street where Icon is is mostly unpaved but Icon is only a five minute walk, or less, from a main road.

We stayed in a one bedroom villa. To describe the arrangement in this villa: The bathroom is off the bedroom. The dayroom and kitchen are a separate room. You need to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. The dayroom/kitchen and bedroom form an L shape round the private swimming pool. This is larger than in most villa and pool combinations. On the other side of the pool is a verge of tropical plants. At the opposite end of the pool from the bedroom is a canopied daybed. Lying here is especially delightful in the early evening while sipping a cocktail brought to the room from the villas' restaurant. The villas are very quiet. On our last couple of days a family with a young child moved into the adjoining villa. Occasionally it was possible to hear the child when in the bathroom but this was not disturbing.

The villa was very clean and the bedding of good quality. Some people might find the mattresses a little on the hard side. Personally, I like hardish mattresses.

If, like me, you are exhausted and need somewhere to recharge your batteries then Icon is an excellent choice. The staff are accommodating and thoughtful. They are friendly and will always try to supply what you need. The breakfasts have a wide choice. I mostly ordered fruit salads. Having breakfast brought to your villa is always, for me, a pleasurable experience. An early dip in the swimming pool and then getting out for breakfast became a daily ritual. Not sure what they use to keep the pool clean but it doesn't seem to be chlorine.

The restaurant is a pleasant place to sit. It doesn't seem to get used much. From the snacks we had this seems to be no reflection on the quality of the food just that, this being Bali, there are many interesting restaurants within walking distance of the villas.

Kinda Traveller wrote that the wifi was slow. This was not our experience. Perhaps it has been upgraded or maybe the speed varies depending on which villa you are in.

All in all a great choice for a quiet holiday in easy reach of Seminyak's main drag. And I personal 'thank you' to the staff for such an enjoyable stay!

It's not my first visit to bali, and i've been to many 5 stars hotels but to be honest "Seminyak Icon" is the best ever.
Friendly staff, very good service, clean villa and very tasty breakfast.
I want to thank all the staff for their wonderful help especially Meena whom i couldn't see before leaving because it was her day off.
Thank you meena for all what you've done to us, from sandy and fawaz.
I cant wait to go back to bali and stay in Seminyak Icon again.

Nothing but praise for this place! We took the I-Am-In-Love package. Honestly, you can do without the package and still have the best night there (Nothing to grand about the package so there won't be much reviewing on that).

We had the single-bed villa. It's well maintained and adequate. Interior design of the bedroom was simple - nothing to be awed by but satisfying. The toilet mimics and outdoor bath area which was lovely and felt detail was put into it. We didn't spend to much time at the lounge but for our room the air-conditioning in there was really cold. The pool was well maintained and privately situated in the heart of your villa. The high walls gave a good sense of privacy to us. And you can't hear much from the neighbours. The staff were very diligent with the mosquito coils and spray, which we appreciated tremendously as we had many well-rested sleeps.

The place was very well kept and clean. Room service was frequent and at good timing. They really care for your privacy as they would call us to tell us that they want to refill our coils or clean our rooms even before they appear at our door (to knock). Kudos on the management.

The staff - wow. They really treat you as their guest in their own home, so accommodating and helpful. We did a lot of last minute request for breakfast, spa etc and yet they organized it without complain. They were very friendly especially Tina and Nyanya (hope i got their names right). They made us feel so welcome; even the gardener would greet us with a big smile!

The area is pretty secluded. The rocky road leading to the villa is used by other villas as well. At night, the neighbouring villas' lights lit the roads dimly. Enough for us to cycle in the night. Yes we did a 10pm cycle around the neighbourhood, not sure why we did that but no harm came upon us.

It's near bali deli, quite a landmark in Seminyak. Most cabs didn't know our villa but when we mentioned bali deli they knew where to go. Bali Deli is a supermarket that sells most of your needs. You can buy mosquito repellent and wet-wipes there.

All in all, I'll definitely recommend this place and would visit them again.

Room Tip: We took room 7 i believe.

We stayed at the 3-bedroom villa that was really nice and clean. There are attached bathrooms for all rooms and the pool is of good size for all to relax and enjoy. Big spread of breakfast and they even provide complimentary hi-tea (though the choice is limited). Wifi is quite slow and TV connections are weak. Guess that leaves us more time to relax at the villa and to explore Bali. Almost all the staff are very friendly and helpful, which makes our stay even more memorable!

I loved our stay at the Icon. We stayed in the 2 bedroom villa for a girls retreat. The Villa was clean, modern but still with a touch of Bali. I preferred the Indonesian Breakfast over the western one, which was fine, but not outstanding. Having said this, the staff were very accommodating with what time we chose to have breakfast. Sometimes we would go out for breakfast and have our 'breakfast' at lunch time. I loved the fresh juices and the plentiful bottled water that were supplied. The in-house drinks menu was very affordable. Extremely private with a lovely pool. All areas were very clean except maybe the passage way to the upstairs room, which was totally forgivable since everything else was just about perfect. The staff were so helpful and organised tailors to visit, and would have organised anything else i would of asked for. And the use of the inhouse phone was very affordable for local calls.

very well located, but off any main roads. Some taxi drivers were un aware of the hotel as it is relatively new - so note the street it is on.

We took advantage of a great deal from agoda, but found out the icon will ask beat any internet price out there if you email them.

Total relaxation and bliss.
