This was my second stay at Villa Kresna in eight months - summer and winter. Thumbs up to the staff, the accommodation, the small, intimate restaurant and the location. Nothing is out of the question for the staff, who went out of their way to assist with whatever your needs. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Importantly, the a/c more than adequate during those hot, sticky months. Located just a minute's stroll to the beach, and close to some of Bali's best restaurants and shopping. However, if you're not into walking just a 25K (approx $2.50) cab fare.
Well priced and suited for both families or couples.

Room Tip: There are two Villa Kresnas. Make sure you chose the one near the beach.

We stayed long term at Villa Kresna when we moved to Bali and while we were looking for our own house. There are 2 Villa Kresna’s in the areas owned by the same people and we stayed in the one close to the beach. We loved the location and it was a 30 second walk to the beach right next door to the Oberoi Hotel whilst not directly on the beach.

This is a very beautiful small hotel mostly white and wood. It’s been designed well and has very tasteful furnishings with quite a nice modern and cool feel about it.

We stayed in a king room, which was large and nicely decorated with a very comfortable king size bed. They have a turn down service so when you come back from a hot afternoon walk on the beach you walk into a perfectly cleaned and cool room.

Breakfast was very good, quick and made to order. The rest of the menu was great too and I really loved the mini burgers. I would have liked some more fresh and healthily options on the menu like a grilled chicken salad or tuna salad.

The staff are very good, lovely and the front desk is very efficient at organizing anything you require like taxis, drivers or motorbikes etc.

I would highly recommend this hotel for it’s near perfect location, service, style and price point.

Family group with two kids of 4 and 5 years. We were in the original Villa's, closer to town, not the newer Suites next to the beach. We stayed in Villa 1 'Bromo' which was a delight - partially open air kitchen with a full size fridge and hob, small dining room and fully outdoor bathroom/shower, mozzie's were not too bad - it was fine to sit out for a while in the evenings. The outdoor section linked to a large bedroom with a small bed and sitting area upstairs on a mezzanine floor (lots of fun for the kids!). The pool was very pretty, but not traditional, it's long and narrow and has a 'rustic' feel, the kids loved it (bit chilly for the parents). Fabulous breakfast in the adjacent Straw Hut Cafe, great for kids dinner also. Had very good live music on one evening. About a 20 minute walk into town, but only 5 mins or 20k INR in a cab. The stairs in Bromo would not lend itself to toddlers, but the mezzanine was a great novelty for our kids. Highly recommend and fantastic value for money.

Room Tip: Not Bromo if you have toddlers that cannot manage stairs sucessfully, or if you do not like outdoor...

We booked a night at Villa Kresna based on Lonely Planet recommendation as bring 50 m from the beach. I was shocked to arrive at a hotel 400 m from the beach. They said they have 2 locations, they place where they have rooms. I was not happy, we moved to the one closer to the beach the next day. Make sure you ask first.

there's two compounds from what i gather - one is more of a resort room style, and the other are villas.

on the villa: stayed in the villa with my best galfriend in april and immediately we were taken in by the outdoor shower and bathroom (less so when we saw lizards at night at the shower area), the beautiful loft with a sitting area adorned with balinese designed daybed, cushions and tatami mat. we also loved the chill out alfresco dining area that connected the bathroom and bedroom area. however, we did not enjoy the bed too much - it was a little uncomfortable (too firm). that said, we were mostly too tired to really bother. and we also had an ant problem in the bathroom, dining area and shelving area. the hotel staff were thoughtful enough to light a mozzie coil in the dining area to ward off the flying nightmares.

they provide two complimentary bottled water with those metal beer caps on which require a bottle opener to open, yet they did not provide a bottle opener in the kitchenette. we thought this was pretty ridiculous as we had to run to the restro to borrow one in order to access our bottled water. it would have made much more sense to provide those normal plastic turn-cap bottles.

we also had a private pool, shared with 3 other villas. this may not work for some but indeed it worked for us. our neighbours were all aussies and we had a lovely time bonding at the pool side. i don't think the pool and the common pool lounge area is as well maintained as it should be and you can see overgrown shrubs and weeds. the pool doesn't seem to be cleaned regularly enough but it is still okay for us.

on the breakfast: it's not a buffet but rather they have a few brekkie sets you may choose from. we had nasi goreng, full aussie brekkie which were delish but we found the portions not big enough for us (or maybe we are big eaters) and ended up ordering more which we had to pay for.

on the location: the villas are located on a quiet street; it is approximately 10 minutes walk to the beach and another 15 minutes into central seminyak in the opposite direction. it is unlikely you will get a taxi in this quiet street unless you're lucky to spot one dropping another passenger off.

nevertheless, we enjoyed the rustic charm of this villa and at USD$120 a night, we definitely thought it was money well spent. however, if you are not fond of insects and looking for something more modern, i think the resort-style rooms, with a communal pool which looks more appealing in our opinion, at the other villa kresna compound is more suitable for you.

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.
