The stay was awesome. The beds were super comfortable and the pool bought open living to a new experience. The best thing about our stay was our villa staff. ILUH looked after us like babies. She was always happy and smiling, Stiring is up and being a big part of our wonderful time at ESHA Villa 1 #8. ILUH is an amazing chef and we will miss her great food. We loved Esha Villas....
Can not fault our stay here at the lovely Esha villa Seminyak. Right from initial booking, correspondence was great. We stayed here with our adult children and their partners for our wedding week. The villa suited our purposes so well with the huge pool and massive rooms. Lovely outdoor bathrooms, plenty of sitting areas for everyone. They upgraded the couch during our visit with an even bigger one! We had guests coming and going all the time with a couple of nights staying up maybe a bit too late. and then there was the most wonderful Iluh. I just want to take her home with me. Nothing was too much to ask. With her gorgeous young helpers they made our trip a dream for me. Above and beyond, from organising food and deliveries for us. Setting up for gatherings. Cooking an absolute feist for all our drop in guests and just been so amazingly helpful. We all loved her and would especially come back to this villa for that reason. Must also mention Kadek, villa manager. Popped in everyday, or second not sure as was not always there but made sure everything was . Again, nothing was too much trouble. Loved the place and to all of you, thank you for making our wedding week so much less stressful than it could have been. We will definitely be recommending the villa to all our friends. Till next time.
Our extended family just stayed here and have had a wonderful holiday. The rooms are spacious all with ensuites and outdoor showers . The pool gave us endless hours of fun too but the MOST praise should go to the lovely staff especially Iluh and Cynthia who made our stay memorable . Iluh cooked us the most incredible banquet one night and breakfast every morning .Nothing was too much trouble We would love to return and cannot recommend highly enough
We had five couples traveling with us for a week. We all wished we could have stayed longer. The villa was amazing, clean, neat, tidy, comfortable and came with everything you need for your stay. The pool was large enough to accommodate a large group of people. Each bedroom had the most comfortable bed, providing a great nights sleep. Each room also had a fabulous outdoor bathroom. The villa came with its own private “housekeeper” who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, from cooking fabulous breakfasts to running errands, the ladies were wonderful. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a larger villa in Seminyak.
We (5 couples) have just stayed for 7 nights at Esha Villa Seminyak 1. Great location, lovely villa, Iluh, Sintya and staff were accommodating and professional. Cooked breakfast every day and nothing is too much trouble. Best bed ever, air conditioned room with outside ensuite. The pool is wonderful and well looked after as are the gardens. Thank you, we have had a wonderful week and would happily return and recommend the villa to friends and family.
There were 9 of us staying at the Villa aged between 83 years and 9 years old. We had a family gathering to celebrate my mother turning 80. At the airport we were met by two drivers who took us to the Villa, where we were met by Iluh, Chyntia and the wonderful chef that was preparing our evening meal.
There are two very spacious bedrooms with ensuites upstairs and two bedrooms that are downstairs off the open living area. Both these downstairs bedrooms also have ensuites, though they are a little smaller. There is a separate bedroom/dwelling with ensuite located near the main house. This room and bathroom is a bit more run down and is in need of a little maintenance. There is a kitchenette in this room but no kettle/jug! All rooms have air conditioning that works well and ceiling fans. Also a safe is in each room along with a hair dryer. (though my experience with the hair dryer - take your own! they might as well not have one) The outdoor showers were great, no problems with water pressure etc. The toilet and hand basins were more undercover. Most bathrooms were in need of a bit of TLC.
We arranged two evening meals whilst we were at the villa. The first was from the 'Western Menu' where a chef came in and cooked an amazing meal on our first night. The other occasion was a 'Suckling pig' with the trimmings, arranged by Iluh.
The best thing about this villa is Iluh. She is amazing. Totally looked after us. Cooked us all a wonderful breakfast each morning. Iluh always made sure my parents were well looked after.
The swimming pool is very large, I would say not suitable for very young children. It is not fenced.
In the previous reviews I read prior to going there were a lot of negative comments regarding the mosquitos. The villa was fogged twice during our stay. I can't say any of our group complained about mosquitos but maybe it was the time of year we were there.
The weather was great. It rained a couple of times at night/early hours of the morning. By the time we got up for breakfast it was sunny and hot (a typical day in paradise).
We arranged our own laundry, there is a handy laundrette in the same laneway/gang that the villa is located on. We dropped off in the morning and they delivered to the villa later that day. Excellent service.
The villa is located an easy walk to Seminyak Square and surrounding shops. Out in front of the villa on the main road is a lot of restaurants and shops. You do not have to walk far to experience a great meal. Though out the back alley on Drapadi we found a lot of quiet wonderful restaurants, which we would totally recommend.
The linen is changed every few days which we did not have a problem with, and our towels if not daily/every second day.
We felt safe whilst our stay at the villa even though it's entrance is located in a very busy gang/laneway that a lot of locals use as a cut through on their scooters. You need to be careful at all times especially with children and elderly people.
Also the wifi was great with no real problems.
A few comments to consider;
The villa was located a little bit further away from the beach than what we would have liked and therefore we did not get there as often as we would should have. It is a great atmosphere to enjoy a drink on the beach at sunset.
The pavers/tiles around the entrance/pool area are very slippery when wet either from rain or the overflow from the pool. My mother slipped and hurt her wrist during our stay and we had to call a doctor. All of our group had near misses/slips during our stay.
In the photos of the villa it shows in the bathrooms a ladder/drying rack. These were not in any of the bathrooms but would have been great to have put our wet swimming togs on.
Whilst this was not our first visit to Bali this was our first time we chose to stay in a villa. The villa game us the flexibility of the 5 separate bedrooms we needed for our group. It was great having a swimming pool to ourselves etc. Though next time we return we would definitely find accommodation much closer to the beach.
In total there was 10 adults staying at various times. We were met at the airport by two drivers who took us to the villa we started out with four rooms then got the pool room that's an extra room detached from main building that was open later. Met but Iluk and her trusty worker Cynthia both very lovely happy hard working ladies. Kadet apologised the next day for not meeting us but he was sick, no problems. We loved our stay the supervisor Kadet couldn't do enough for us arranging transportation to locations in a mini bus, booking restaurant arranging pool toys what he got the job done. The two ladies are wonderful arranged our washing each day we had them cook a meal at the villa a must do and so much lovely food. The presentation is wonderful. We ordered different breakfast each day and it was ready at the arranged time. The pool is great it is about 6 foo six in depth with a little platform to walk in it is cleaned daily and towels changed every second day. The rooms are spacious with ceiling fans and air conditioners that work well. The bathroom is outside so to speak is large and a good shower. Rooms cleaned daily by the great staff. The location is up a lane way and is ideal to walk to eat street or close by there are another lots of fine eatery places and shops. We had seven nights and my only negative and this is just me is that on a stay like that I would have like the bed linen changed on the fourth day. The problem with the door upstairs was apparent but was soon fixed on the arrival of Kadet. There are in room safes. I highly recommend this Villa for the staff and accommodation and of course the location. Well done and thanks for a wonderful time.
