We are a family of ten - parents plus five grown up children and three partners. The Villa was expansive and ensured we all had sufficient (and luxurious) privacy while still being able to socialise in comfort around the pool or the dinner table.
The chef and staff are world class! Nothing was too much trouble. A family who loves food as we do can be a challenge to please but chef Sofian aimed to please. We even arranged for him to conduct a cooking class for us at the villa - probably one of the best meals we have ever had in Bali. The staff were friendly, kind and attentive.
The amenities and facilities were outstanding. Large comfortable beds, air conditioned rooms, outdoor showers, free standing baths - fabulous.
Highly recommend a stay here - we walked to many restaurants and shops and a great spa at the end of the street that we all visited every day!
Thank you Villa Sayang d'Amour - we hope to see you again soon.
We were a group of 8 adults and had a wonderful time at this beautiful paradise home! The service was impeccable. Ivan was always helpful and Haniff made wonderful food better than any hotel restaurant. Sri, Lina, Andy and Johnny were always smiling and helpful. The place is absolutely stunning, the decor is beautiful, the pool is cool and refreshing and the surroundings gorgeous! It is very close to W Hotel and main street restaurants. I stringly recommend it for a perfect stay in Bali.
Let me start by saying that this gorgeous and spacious villa is one of my favorite places to stay in Bali!
You can imagine that feeling at home away from home is a big contributor to an excellent stay.
The rooms are very spacious which gives you a very calm and relaxed feeling. The facilities on site
have all that you can wish for. The staff are truly friendly and very helpful which adds to great experience.
This Villa serves the best of both worlds, on one hand you have complete privacy when you wish so.
On the other hand if you wish some adventure, the Villa is located in the heart of Seminyak.
It is just a walking distance from all the trendy beach clubs, restaurants, hotels. As a cherry on the cake
there is a shopping area near by as well. All in all this place is simply stunning!
We enjoyed our stay very much! Looking forward to another return!
Well located villa for those who like the Seminyak life - next door to the W and a few minutes walk from Potato Head , yet quiet and serene. Great service and an excellent chef
We stayed as a group of 14 (6A, 8C) for 10 nights in September. The villa is absolutely huge and much larger than expected. The photos are great but it is even better in real life. The bedrooms are all amazing and there is no one room better than the other - anyone would be happy with any room. Our main bathroom was larger than our master bedroom and bathroom at home combined!
The grounds are very well maintained and there were staff cleaning the pool and gardening every day. The housekeeping staff maintain the rooms every day and make everything beautiful, setting the table for meals, bringing coffee on silver trays by the pool etc.
The staff were more than happy to do anything we requested, bring drinks, go to the shops to get more supplies (we would give them cash and they would bring back a receipt) and make any food we asked for. We would just pay cash for the food purchased and every few days the manager would present us with receipts and a running balance and we would tip in more cash. They were more than happy to prepare drinks with the alcohol we purchased. The chef was very good and presented us with an array of food, was happy to suggest things or take our requests.
The only negatives were the lack of pool toys (as advertised on the website) and board games for the children. When asked they said the website needed updating and they were very old pictures. There was however unlimited wifi and a Mac for the kids to use anytime, plus an Xbox but we would have preferred to bring more things for them to do (less technology) had we known. We ended up purchasing pool toys at the markets and left them at the villa on our departure so hopefully someone else will benefit!
We were also surprised breakfast wasn't included in the high nightly rate though it was plentiful and varied.
We had a big storm with heavy rain one night and the roof leaked onto our sleeping children's bed. We ended up moving a mattress to the floor for them for the night….the next day the staff weren't overly concerned, just said the roof would be fixed.
Overall, I would recommended this to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday. Due to the service charge law being introduced in the last few yeas (15% added to everything) we didn't tip anyone but that wasn't to say they did a poor job. Everyone was lovely and very accommodating.

The resort was spacious private and well set out. The rooms were luxurious and over the top with space and storage.
The staff were exceptional with attention and care above and beyond expectation.
Chef Hanif was a great extra service we all enjoyed . He was enthusiastic and his love of serving good food was appreciated. Sandi, Sri, Andi, and Johnie were always willing to help and make excellent Gin and Tonic ;)
Iwan was an exceptional host, nothing was a problem and when we had a medical emergency the doctor and ambulance was there within minutes. He had true concern for our welfare and made sure we were comfortable and looked after on our return.
We will be lining up for a return trip I'm sure.
Fabulous destination for our extended family holiday. Everything was perfect. Beautifully appointed rooms combining European elegance and Balinese charm. Gracious and discreet staff attending to our every need. We will definitely return.
