“Best holiday ever”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for a week at Villa Mien and it was hands down the best holiday our family has had. I was very sceptical staying in a villa as opposed to a resort - but now I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Coming back to a quiet place of your own after a busy day was awesome. Kadek and his staff were great and were always on hand if and when needed. The rooms were always cleaned and the location was perfect.
Thank you again

“Wonderful Villa with exceptional staff”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just arrived home after spending 10 wonderful nights at Villa Mien. The airport pick up was seamless and we even had a few cold Bintangs given to us for the trip to the Villa which was a great touch. When we arrived at the Villa we were greeted by the Villa manager, Kadek who is such a great asset to the Villa. Even though it was a late night arrival he was so welcoming and didn't rush us as he showed us through the villa. Each morning Kadek was very eager to cook our breakfast and help with any plans we had for the day.
The villa was cleaned thoroughly every day to a high standard which was lovely to come home to after a busy day out. The photos just don't do this place justice as it is truly a paradise after the hustle and bustle of the streets of Seminyak.
The only tiny thing that we could fault was that due to the pool being in total shade for most of the day it was quiet cold. Maybe the spa could have the option of being heated and that would solve the problem as any overflow from the spa runs into the pool. That being said I would not let that small issue deter anyone from booking this beautiful villa.

We spent two wonderful weeks at Villa Mien with our two teenage children & couldn't not have been more impressed with the accommodation & the staff. We were picked up from the airport & greeted by the driver Kadek with ice cold drinks including a Bintang for my husband... he couldn't have been happier! On arrival at the Villa we were greeted by Iluh who made us a great breakfast every morning & the Villa manager Kadek who went over & above the call of duty looking after us. He even offer to take my teenage son out for the morning on the back of his motorbike to look around Kuta & it will be a memory he will treasure for ever. On another occasion he took my husband & son to the beach & around Kuta (while the girls went shopping of coarse) & this was done out of the goodness of his heart with no payment expected.... We had not stayed in a Villa before & I was a little nervous to do so however Villa Mien is exactly as the images show, we felt safe the whole time we were there & we felt part of the local community. We have stayed at the Padma in the past & after staying at Villa Mien can't imagine staying in a hotel again! The Villa is situated down a gang beside the Bintang Supermarket which we found to be a relaxing walk & very convenient to everything. I would also like to say that Janice the Villa owner is fantastic. She gave us advice on things to do & great places to eat which we may not have found ourselves. Villa Mien will hold a 'special place in our hearts forever & we can't wait to go back......in fact with have booked Aussie Villa One also owned by Janice across the gang from Villa Mien with friends for next year!

We enjoyed an 8-night stay at Villa Mien. The photos on the website are a true reflection of the villa. It is conveniently set back from the vibrant streets of Seminyak with shops and restaurants close by. The villa was maintained daily by friendly staff. Breakfast was provided on request - do not pass on the delicious banana pancakes! Laundry service can also be arranged. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and the swimming pool provided a refreshing dip. The airport pick-up and drop-off was hassle-free.

We have been to Bali so many times and never stayed in a villa before, until now and we are so glad we did, absolutely loved Villa Mien, it was like our own little oasis in Bali, you step in through the doors and Wow! it was amazing. Kadek and Ibu looked after us very well with cooking our breakfast each morning and you must try Kadek's banana pancakes and banana smoothies, they are to die for. Villa Mien is in a great location, on a laneway behind the Bintang Supermarket in Seminiyak and is close to restaurants and bars in both Seminiyak and Legian all within walking distance. The next time we visit Bali I would love to stay here again.

“Comfortable villa, relaxing environment”
Reviewed 2 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Stayed at Villa Mien for 6 days with my daughter recently. Overall, our experience with the villa and the staff met our expectations. The reservation process was efficient and Janice very helpful. Me were met on arrival at the airport as promised and our return was also handled well.
The villa is as a number of reviews have noted, down a fairly narrow laneway, but we had no problem with this and actually found the walk more relaxing after the hectic pace of the roads outside. At night, the villa provided a torch to help in walking through some of the darker areas of the laneway.

The villa is spacious, both bedrooms being generously sized, bedding and pillows comfortable and onsuites similarly well proportioned. Downstairs, the living area which is immediately adjacent to the pool was comfortable. The pool itself was nice although a little cool due to it being in the shade for most of the day.

A small kitchenette provides basic food preparation facilities. The staff, led by Kadek were friendly and helpful. Kadek has been recognised for his pancakes in other reviews, and he has now diversified into omlettes which I can recommend. Kadek was very obliging in responding to any requests and Ibu, his assistant very nice although not speaking english made communications more difficult with her. The villa was well maintained each day.

As some reviews have noted, mosquitos can be an issue and we found them quite plentiful particularly around dusk and early evening. Best advice is to apply anti- mossie cream to exposed skin and light the mosquito coils provided by the villa and close bedrooms late afternoon. Mosquitos are present throughout Bali so if travellers are not prepared or have unrealistic expectations, better not to come to tropical places in the first instance.
