We only stayed one night here when our flight was delayed, but loved it. We had a junior suite which was large and cool. The communal pool/courtyard area is really pretty and well kept. The staff were very helpful, phoning to reconfirm/rebook our flights for us, booking us in late in the evening and they were very easy to talk to. The hotel is on a relatively quiet and winding road - very short walk to the beach. I thought it was inspired that they provided mosquito repellent alongside the usual shampoo and cotton wool. Breakfast was very good and plenty of choice.

We had booked the hotel next door, Casa Artista for our stay in Bali however as Casa Artista wasn't available for the first night of our arrival we booked Villa Kresna. The place is about 10 minutes walk from the beach and on a back road without pavements where cars and scooters sometimes ride at high speed, so be careful. Our room was in a courtyard of a long pond (used as a swimming pool) with several other rooms opening out onto it. It's a pleasant place however perhaps not to my taste.

Our 'suite' comprised of a semi outside area with a dining table, a bedroom with a small mezzanine floor, a small kitchenette and an outside toilet and shower. Though the idea of an outside shower appeals on an exotic front, it's slightly uncomfortable, especially at night when there are dozens of geckos about. The bedroom was ok, perhaps a 2 to 3 star standard with tiled floors. Oddly, there was a small mezzanine floor above the bed with a few beanbags - I couldn't work out when or how one might use that space. The kitchen was dirty with most of the cutlery and glasses with dust on them.

As I said above, it's not to my taste, but may well be to others. And I felt it was too expensive for the way it was decorated and it's location. I just wanted to outline the style for anyone planning to book here.

We spent 3 nights at Villa Kresna boutique suites.

I thought I had booked an actual suite, but noted that our 'deluxe' suite did not have a lounge to sit on, whilst most of the others did, so this may be worth checking.

The location is good, a 10 minute walk into central Seminyak and a 4-5 minute walk to the beach.

Although there was a private pool, we shared it with 3 other suites, just at our end, so if everyone had been using it it would have been way too small.

The hotel forgot to pick up my husband from the airport, they got the days mixed up and told me that he was supposed to arrive the day before and had decided not to come! A simple 'we forgot' was eventually offered but would have been preferable in the first place.

Overall it was very pretty and the food was good but I think I would try somewhere else next time as it was not outstanding for the money.

Room Tip: Ask them to confirm exactly what you are getting.

We spent 5N at Villa Kresna Boutique Suites. Its remote location is both a blessing and a curse; just a stone's throw away from a gorgeous beach with beautiful sunset view, but also a ten-minute walk (through narrow, dimly lit alleys after dark) from the closest supermarket or restaurant on the main street. We actually haven't found any sign that the suites are located at the end of this road yet, and how the cab driver manage to find this place on our first day remains a mystery (80,000 IDR for cab ride from the airport)!

The hotel staff are extremely helpful! Breakfast starts from 0730 but I have to leave for a dive trip tomorrow morning at 0700, so they prepared a box of croissant and sweet bread as well as fresh pineapple juice for me the night before to take with me during the trip. The proper breakfast every morning is so good that I had a hard time choosing between going on the dive trip and missing breakfast, but their take-away box put a big smile on my face! The eggs benedict is a must-try!!!!

We didn't get any mosquito bites, but the staff do come in and spray the suite with insecticide every evening, and the first night they even had an electric mozzie repellent thingie on. They also come in to switch on the air-conditioning and table lamps while we're out during the day, and when we're back in the evening the suite really felt cozy and welcoming.

The pool is not very big, and there're only around six beach chairs. It's considered the low season in early May so we're having quite a good time with a lot of space, tranquility and privacy to ourselves. We booked the room through booking.com, but it seems like one gets a better rate if booked directly through the Villa Kresna's website (5-10% off and free two-way airport transfer if staying more than 3 nights). We tried emailing the hotel staff before we came to enquire if we could partake the free airport transfer since we were staying 5N, but didn't get a reply. If you're looking to take a cab to the airport, walk a little just outside to catch a normal taxi (~110,000 IDR). Otherwise airport transfer service via the villa costs twice as much.

Overall it has been a very pleasant stay and we highly recommend the place during the low season!

We stayed here for 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom villa. We could not have been more pleased with all aspects. Villas are fuly self contained in a private courtyard and we had a private pool and fish pond. The second huge bedroom bathroom were on the other side of a lovely garden with pool & pond & deck chairs & frangipani tree. The area is filled with art work, paintings sculpture and pots of flowing plants. The bedrooms & bathroom are beautifully appointed,spacious ( very spacious) with very comfortable beds, tv cd player, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen.
Just a short walk to the beach & Seminyak square that has a market, quality shops great restaurants and plenty of taxis and of course plenty ofbikes for hire $5 per day. Taxis are so cheap it is pathetic wee ended up giving all taxis $5 no matter how short the trip as you can go a fair way for about $2. Rays Seminyak or Seminyak road is only a short distance by taxi or about half an hour walking and has the best quality shops we found in Bali. The only thing I would advise is to take Mozzie repellant as although they spray the rooms at dusk and most beds have mosquito nets it just it extra protection. Bushmans insect repellent is amazing.( Australian brand , we know how to repel mozzies !)
The breakfast is free or was in the deal we got and has a large selection of options and very good. There is also room service until 10pm, great food.
They staff could not be more helpful and even wash & iron your cloths for a song.

Stayed for 3 nights and very much enjoyed the surroundings, especially the pool which was a bit small, but beautifully surrounded by flowers and greenery. The outdoor shower was unique. The staff was extremely helpful and very welcoming. 10 minute walk to Ku de Ta which is a fabulous place to eat, drink and watch the sunset as well as the bustling town full of shopping and restaurants. Ate at their restaurant one night and it was very good and not expensive. The breakfast which is included was excellent. You will not be disappointed. There is also a great place to get a massage just down the street.

Room Tip: Only saw our room, but am sure they are all very good.

We had a wonderful 2 nights at the kresna suites, when we couldn't get in to the villa we usually stay in. We love this location being so close to the beach and have often walked past kresna and eaten in their cafe but have never stayed. It will now be where we choose to stay when it just the 2 of us as it is such great value for money with large spacious rooms and breakfast cooked to order.
The staff here are wonderful. Often I read reviews which say front desk staff are disinterested but at kresna they are so friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to find something out for you if they can't answer it straight away.
One day I had dropped some money just outside my front door and the staff knocked on the door to return it to me.
The staff in reservations were prompt and helpful and everything ran smoothly.
I'm sure we'll be back soon!
