This was my third time staying at Villa Kresna - twice at their Villas and my first at their Suites. This hotel loves to offer all differnet types of room categories, howevery, actually getting the room
you booked is close to impossible. I recently booked two rooms - one for a friend and one for myself and husband. We booked the Grand Royal Suite which is their highest room category and should have a separate living and bedroom. What we were shown upon arrival was a big, generic room by itself on the 2nd floor. It has a big bed and big ugly sofa next to it. Not exactly a "Grand Royal Suite". I assured the check-in staff that I booked (and paid a deposit) for a Grand Royal Suite. The woman informed me that since I did not make the booking on their website, that the category meant nothing. ?? My friend had booked a lesser category, but got a much nicer room so she switched with us. Her room (no idea what category her room was) was quite nice although no artwork or personal touches of any kind. Just sofa, coffee table, TV in the sitting room. All bare white walls and giant purple (strange color choice) sofa. The bedroom had great a/c and comfy beds, but my husband said he felt like he was in Swedish prison. I wish they would put a TV in the bedroom since you can't sit in the sitting room enjoying anything on the telly b/c there is no a/c in there and it is HOT. This hotel has so much potential - a great location, great pool and great staff. I just wish the rooms matched the cute atmosphere of the lobby and cafe. They literally look like someone just stopped caring when they got to decorating the rooms. Other than that, we ended up having a nice stay and I would return. Just book the cheapest category - it doesn't seem to really matter.

The boutique Villas are beautiful. Huge living area and well equipped kitchen, gorgeous large plunge pool, and all very stylish. The breakfast was included and was delicious( especially the eggs benedict) . The fruit wasn't that great, and the fruit juices very watered down but still a good breakfast. It's a little far from the action and down some very narrow streets, so walking out at night wasn't an option. However it was easy to get a taxi called, and interesting to watch them manoeuvre the skinny lanes!

Room Tip: Villa 6 was perfect

We stayed in one of Villa Kresna Art Cafe's private villas. It was the most we spent on a hotel on our trip to Bali, but I must say, it was worth it.

We really did feel like we were secluded. We never heard any of the other villas and the plunge pool was clean and great to dunk into after hot Seminyak days. Flowers grew above you and fell into the pool adding romance to it.

The villa was extremely well laid out, with well stocked and well priced mini bar and room service was easily available. Everything was very clean and modern which made for a luxurious stay.

The restaurant is lovely and the food (mix of styles) is absolutely excellent quality for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Almost the best of our holiday (closely after Potato Head)! One of the nights we were here there was live acoustic music which was fun and gave a different evening to us.

The staff were very polite and happy to help. We arranged a driver to Tanah Lot and to the airport. These were more expensive than other drivers on our holiday, but this may have just been Seminyak prices compared to Ubud and Pemuteran.

The only way that our stay could have been improved is that our flight was early and we were given breakfast to keep in the fridge for the next day. This was not the best compared to what we had gotten used to in the restaurant and for the price we paid for room and breakfast, but this is a small gripe in what was an indulgent, romantic and excellent stay.

We stayed in Villa Batur and were very comfortable. It was great location for those who want to get away from the chaos but still be close enough to the action. We could easily walk to Seminyak Square and the Flea Markets but because we were located up an alley, we could go to our villa and escape the noise and chaos.
We stayed with our 2 teenage children and it was spacious enough that we weren't under each other's feet and the pool was roomy enough for all of us to hop in and have a splash.
We will be more than happy to stay when we visit again next year. Oh, and the staff were so friendly!!!

We stayed at the Kresna Villas 2 years ago. Very nice but not so impressed with pools. Liked enough to try again with the refurbished SUITES at the other site. Just needed a place for 3 nights and not looking for anything further than practicality.

WE LOVED IT. Very surprised. Spacious, clean, a bit cool. Very quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Everything worked, everyone helpful. perfect for our needs and everyone we chatted with said they loved it too. Hidden gem descriptions from all.

The taxi thing others have described is a pain as most taxis went to the OTHER villa Kresna. No taxi going past so always had to call for a taxi. But once we worked out to carry a map and a card with the address and reception could call for taxi, it was all very very simple. They really could signpost it better though.

Big construction site next door...but then there's construction and traffic noise all over Seminyak. Didnt bother us.

The person who said a 10 minute walk to beach must have been on crutches! ha... 2 minutes tops and a short stroll to the left on the beach for lots of dining options.

There's no fancy view or an abundance of activity, but for a great base its perfect. Loved it so much we'll be back in December.

Stayed here for Christmas was very happy, booked now over Agoda out of season for $40 more the night and have a building site with jackhammers and dust about 5 meters from my window from 8am till 8pm. Booked over Agoda many times was happy in the past. But no mentioning of this on the hotel website or anywhere. Will go on for a while. Bali is at the moment a big construction site so be carefully if you booked something and payed in advance. Get someone to check out where you stay.

The villa's are clean and pleasant enough, however the outdoors bathrooms are a bit hit and miss. We did not get any hot water in the shower throughout our stay. It was never fixed sufficiently upon complaining. The water in the outdoor area of the shower does not drain and pools among the pebbles and moss, and is therefore a mosquito trap and attracts all sorts of bugs. The sink was always found covered in bugs. Really did not feel comfortable in the bathroom area. Also the towels provided were always stain covered and quite old and frayed. The rooms however were pleasant and spacious enough. The upstairs day bed area's are a little unnecessary.
We had two villa's as a family and breakfast was included in the price. Breakfast was very disappointing. This included one very thick piece of toast, a teaspoon sized amount of beans, 3 or 4 mushrooms and 2 eggs. It really had no substance to it.
We had issues checking in. One room was ready upon our early arrival, but we were told we would have to wait till normal check in time for the second villa. Then we get a phone call to say that the room would still be another hour before it was ready. This we were told right at the last minute.
Location is very misleading from the website. You will need to taxi to get to the shops. But you can walk to the beach in about 10minutes.
I wouldn't stay here again and I would have been bitterly angry had we have paid the full price. We were very disappointed even having got the vila's at a 50% discount rate.

Room Tip: Be sure to check if you are getting a private pool with your villa or if it is a shared pool with 4...
