First, to avoid confusion when you are booking, Villa Kresna is comprised of two properties: the Villas and the Suites. The Suites are more like traditional hotel rooms, and the Villas are more like, well, villas. The Suites are closer to the beach and have indoor bathrooms; the Villas are a bit further away and have outdoor bathrooms.
We stayed in the Villas Semeru Suite B, which suited us well - it was secluded and perfect for my husband since he had to do a bit of work while we were there. There are 4 other villas which share a common pool. The pool is small but nice, although the bottom could use a good cleaning.
The room itself was very nice. Extremely clean, and there was a fan and air con. I must admit, I was worried that we would be sharing our room with geckos and mosquitoes, but even in the outdoor bathroom, there were none to be found. A warning - the shower, toilet and sink are all open-air, so if it freaks you out to be outside in the middle of the night, you might want to book a suite instead of a villa! There is also a little loft upstairs in the Semeru suite, which would be a good place for kids (who are old enough to not fall down stairs) to sleep if this is a family vacation.
A note on the beach: It is about a 10-minute walk to the nearest area of the beach. I did NOT enjoy the beach much. It was extremely dirty with loads of trash and debris. So if you're looking for white sand and clear blue water, Seminyak is not the place for you. I did enjoy shopping on the main street in town, though, and Carla Spa has great massages for CHEAP! (US $5.) A cab ride from the villas to the main shopping area was US$1. I think Seminyak in general is more for those who want to hang out by the pool, eat good, inexpensive food and shop.
Overall, out experience with Villa Krensa was great. Be sure to look out for specials - we got our room for US$104 per night.
