“"Real Bali Accommodation"”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

On my recent trip to Bali, my friend and I stayed at Villa Kresna. It has a real Bali feel to it. The room was nice and clean and the best bit is your shower is out under the stars. They have lovely staff and the food was good too. My friend is totally gluten free and they were very helpful, and made sure her meals were gluten free. It is only a quick walk to the beach, about 5 minutes, and only a 45min/ hour walk to Kuta along the beach. Really close walk to Eat Street and all those yummy restaurants in Seminyak. Would definitely stay there again!!

We stayed at Villa Kresna boutique for 6 days. We loved the spaciousness of the Alamander room and just chilled out between the Kresna pool and the beach which was just two minutes walk away. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the incredibly affordable food available at the Art Cafe helped make our stay relaxed and all that we wanted it to be. The only down side is that the low lighting makes reading at night quite difficult. should be easy to fix.

Room Tip: While we loved the spaciousness of the Alamander room the lights were a bit low which made reading i...

We ended out two week Bali adventure here for 2 nights. We really fell in love with the place.

The pool area and restaurant with shabby chic furniture were always inviting and we loved the well-manicured gardens and attentive staff.

Each room has a day bed which was great on warm afternoons and the location was unbeatable.
We will be back!

ROOM: The rooms are a decent size, have a king size bed with lots of pillows, and a clean bathroom. The design and fixtures are modern and up to date. Some rooms have views of the pool, mine had no view at all.

FOOD: Not great but edible.

POOL: Small but beautiful.

STAFF: Friendly, basic services, nothing luxury, but helpful.

LOCATION: Walk literally one minute to the beach.

OVERALL: It's a great little, clean, modern and friendly place to stay for the price. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Room on the second floor are a bit more private. Ask for a view of the pool to make sure it's n...

I booked a one bedroom suite and was expecting to be at Kresna Suites. However, we ended up with a suite in the villa property. My advice would be to avoid it if you can (Room 307).

The bedroom was fairly small, there was only enough floor space for one bag whilst the other one had to go in the living room. The living room was completely open so was not airconditioned and looked into a small walled courtyard. The courtyard had no furniture so it was not possible to sit outside.

There was no TV in the bedroom so if you wanted to relax and watch TV, you had to do it in the living space where it was hot and there was no where comfortable to sit. There was a small round table with two hard kitchen chairs. The small couch was very uncomfortable with a wooden back, something you would expect in a waiting room.

The bathroom was old and the water in the shower often went cold. The room description said it came with a bath and a hair dryer and there was neither.

The towels were old, one was ripped, a pillow case was ripped and one of the very thin blinds in the bedroom was ripped. The sheets didn't get changed during our three night stay.

We had to use a pool that was behind gates shared by three other villas down the path from ours. You felt like you were intruding on their space.

The kitchen is very under equipped so pretty much unusable if you needed it. Big fridge but jammed full of hotel drinks. Small freezer but no ice tray.

We were checking out early so we paid our bill the night before. At 6.30am the next morning when we were waiting outside for our transfer, the security guards bought a portable phone to my husband. The voice on the other end didn't introduce himself, but proceeded to carry on like we were leaving without us paying our bill. My husband assured him we had paid it the night before and he said it would get someone to check, talk about made to feel like a criminal!

Unfortunately, we didn't enjoy our stay here at all which was very disappointing as I had done a lot of research so was expecting a lot more, particulalry for the price we paid.

Room Tip: Avoid room 307

Getting there through the back streets I was a little worried but I shouldn't have been; the villas are stunning, I stayed in the one bedroom villa first which was amazing but the two bedroom pool villa stole the show set in its own private courtyard the bedrooms overlook the pool with two beautiful outdoor bathrooms and our own fish pond - perfect for romantic couples

Eat at the cafe the breakfasts and evening meals were excellent and great value.

Five minute walk to beach and cool bars and shops but you would need a torch walking back late at night I reckon

Walked into a nice rustic villa, similar to depictions on website. However, we found in our room, the tiled floors to be dirty (need to wear slippers in all rooms); the kitchen had been unused for a long time, and thus not in nice condition. Everything just felt old in the rooms. Our water heater was not working properly and had to be replaced and our toilet had some trouble. Although mosquitos were prevalent, we had expected this. It also had the odd feeling that the reception was in the restaurant. On the plus side, the restaurant food and staff was very good for breakfast and dinner.
