My partner and I stayed at My Villas in Bali for 7 nights between 23-30 June. We had a great time thanks to the faultless staff, the amazing villa and great Seminyak location. For us, the experience started when trying to book the villa. We decided to take advantage of a stay for 7, pay for 6 promotion. However, the website showed that they had vacancy for only 6 of the 7 nights. I emailed the manager using the email listed on the website. Within 24 hours, I had received a response from Aaron the manager, advising that they could accommodate us for the dates we wanted and that he had updated the website so we could book. We proceeded to book, and secured our accommodation. Aaron contacted me again shortly after booked to ask for our arrival information. He was very prompt, friendly and courteous in his communications.
About one week before arriving, Aaron contacted me again to re-confirm our arrival information so that it could be passed onto the driver. When we arrived at the airport, the driver was waiting, and he took us straight to the Villas. Upon arrival, we met Nengah and Putu, two of the butlers and they helped us settle in and sort out the paperwork.
During our stay, they were extremely helpful and friendly, doing simple things like organising (reputable) taxis, providing suggestions on where to eat, organising short tours and transfers to Ubud for the next part of our holiday. A few times we requested to make changes to tour timings etc. Each time our Butler was happy to accommodate our request and make the necessary changes. Our butler also made a fabulous breakfast each morning at a pre-arranged time of our choosing.
The staff were very accommodating. On our final day, we asked for a late checkout and because they had no one staying in our villa that night, they said we could checkout whenever we liked at no extra charge. We thought this was very considerate. When we finally checked out at 2pm (normal checkout was 12 noon), we bumped into Aaron who asked us how our stay was and wished us well for the remainder of our stay in Bali. Then, to top that off, the staff offered to subsidise our transfer from Seminyak to Ubud (seeing as we would not be using the departure transfer that they provide from the Resort to the Airport). So instead of costing us $25 USD for the Seminyak – Ubud transfer that they had originally quoted, they only charged us $10 USD which was very thoughtful and a reasonable compromise. It was these little things that made our stay just perfect.
We used the laundry service once during our stay. We found the prices to be very reasonable. Note that there is a small laundry across the road from the entrance. We were going to use, however the day we went to use it they were closed, so we decided to leave it with our butler instead. It turned out to be cheaper than we had calculated too which was a bonus. For a standard load of laundry it cost us about 60,000 IDR, though each item was charged separately (a couple of thousand IDR per item).
All in all, we would highly recommend My Villas in Bali. I would stay there again if travelling to Seminyak.
