Villa Esha Seminyak I is a fabulous villa to stay in - the house and gardens are well maintained and created a tropical paradise. The service provided by the villa staff, Iluh and Syntia, was outstanding - they assisted us with everything we needed, cooked us fabulous Indonesian meals and a delicious daily breakfast. Iluh was particularly beautiful and generous with my children which always makes a difference when travelling with children. I would recommend it to any one, especially families with children.
Our extended family really enjoyed our stay here. The accommodation was perfect for our family. The hosts were very friendly and helpful but not in the way of us enjoying our time together. The only thing i could find as i negative would be the mosquitoes, you need to have mozi coils on which the hosts organise for you. As the living rooms are outside.
From the airport pick up to drop off the stay was amazing. We traveled with ages from 3 years to 88 years. The rooms were fantastic, some ground floor for 'grandpa' and up the top for the mid 20's so they had their privacy. Buzzing seminyak was in walking distance but we preferred to catch a cab for $5!
The villa has sun most of the day for those who want to build on their tan and the pool is a welcoming sight all day. We all loved the outside showers.
Ilui and cinthia were fantastic..if they were not keeping the 3 year old occupied and looking after 'grandpa' they were cooking us fantastic meals and giving 'grandma' a well needed break. Kadek could not have been more helpful and his picks for restaurants are both reasonable and great food. They shopped for us and could NOT be more helpful.
Our only complaint is that we did not book it for longer! :) We will definitely be back.
We could not have asked for a better start to our honeymoon! On arrival we were greeted by Iluh, Syntia and Kadek and shown our beautiful room that had been decorated with 'I love you' balloons and rose petals. We then had a beautiful meal that evening in the villa cooked by Iluh and Syntia which could possibly be the best meal we have had in Bali so far, a delicious mix of meat and seafood prepared and served perfectly. In the few days to follow any request or question we had was solved by Iluh including a nasty case of Bali belly (not from the Villa) my husband had on our last night which Iluh stayed with us until he was sleeping and called a doctor to come to the Villa. We will truly miss Iluh and her team until our next visit to Bali. We would recommend this Villa to anyone coming to Seminyak as it is in a great location walking distance to most of Seminyak's top restaurants, the staff are fabulous and the Villa is gorgeous and so clean!

Had a great time at the villa. The staff were very warming and helpful. Great place and it even had Netflix which was great for the kids. Once we got the pool fence it was the best area.
Great location also. In the centre of most things.
I must say I was quite disappointed with my stay at Villa Esha. The place was lovely, but has several maintenance issues - air con constantly not working, water switched off at night. We didn't receive fresh bottled water daily for brushing our teeth, linen wasn't changed and we had to ask for fresh towels.
But what I found most disappointing was that we asked the house keeper iluh for a price on a driver to take one of the girls to the airport but instead, she just booked him and after hearing his price we declined and one of the girls was forced to pay the driver $20 for his time.. when asked why or who he was iluh claimed to know nothing. I found the whole situation to be dodgy.
Villa is in a great area, an alley that is in the middle of the two main streets.
Mosquitoes are quite bad at this place, be sure to bring your own repellant.
Our group of 8 was perfectly comfortable and amazed with the villa. Iluh was the best host and made us still feel so welcome. Anytime we needed her for anything she was there to help. She anticipates our needs and had great suggestions as well.
Every morning iluh made us a delicious breakfast. We asked her to mix it up so some days we had a more traditional American breakfast and other days an Indonesian breakfast. My brother wanted to have a roasted pig for dinner so she made it happen! A whole pig!
The villa was beautiful and spacious. In all honestly it was different showering outside, but it was also kind of fun and different. Each bedroom had ac so it was nice to escape the humid weather at night.
All in all, this villa was too good to be true. Huge pool, comfortable living space/bedrooms, and hostess Iluh!
Would go back anytime!
