“Great villa, excellent location”
Reviewed 13 July 2011

We stayed at the Ahimsa for 4 nights in July and loved it. It is conveniently located across the road from Bali Deli and only a few minute walk to the main shopping strip. The staff at Ahimsa were outstanding; always ready to help and always smiling and friendly. We have a 2 year old and a 4 year old and when we arrived we found that they had already put a pool fence in place.

The breakfast freshly cooked each morning was great and the only thing I could complain about are the mosquitos. However that's a problem pretty much everywhere and nothing to do with the Ahimsa. The rooms are well appointed without being brand new and the mosquito netting saved us at nights! The bedrooms are seperate - each with their own bathroom, so are perfect for a couple or families.

We had Villa 1 which was closest to the road so there was unfotunately a lot of road noise but that was only noticeable from the lounge/dinning room area - not from the bedrooms.

We would happily stay here again.

We stayed in the three bedroom villa and we cant fault it. The staff were so attentive to all our needs. Nothing was too much trouble. We were a family of six and found the villa to be very spacious with gorgeous bedrooms and spectacular bathrooms. Having breakfast cooked for us in our own kitchen was awesome. Location wise, we were very well situated within a short walk to the supermarket which was very well stocked with any thing that you may need. Plenty of excellent restaurants nearby also but then again we were a quick taxi ride to anywhere in Seminyak. Overall a really lovely stay which we highly recommend. Maria Withers. Australia.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Me and my wife took up the honeymoon package at the Ahimsa along Jl Kunti and we were amazed from the start till the end. Every staff we meet showed excellent heartwarming service from the pick-up driver to the security guy outside.
Delicious meals were cooked by the staff in our villa and and we were spoilt throughout our stay so much that we didnt go of our villa much.
Very spacious villa, and decent size and depth pool which we spent quite a bit of time in..the float in the pool was fun too..Outdoor shower was amazing..
Only issue was the mozzies which i believe is everywhere when night falls. But we had this turn-down service before night fall where the staff would put down the covers from the ceiling for the bed and light up coils for us..
We especially loved our romantic dinner where the whole area near the pool was transformed to a very romantic setting with candles and floating heart with flowers in the pool...Would not put up photos to spoil the experience, and i'd recommend this anyone looking for the best villa experience in Bali!

Room Tip: Keep doors to bdroom closed as much at night

stayed in the three bedroom villa with another couple and their son and another freind. they looked after us like we were famous from the vip fast track pickup at the airport to the time we checked out. we stayed for one week then then moved to kuta for four days to do our shopping as when we were in the villa we didn't want to go out to shop. we ate at different places in our street including bali deli, i think our dearest food bill four six of us was about $30 aus very cheap local places in the street. we usually stay in bali for three weeks but we were so relaxed from the villa it felt like we had been there a month. we will definetly be back to the ahimsa we loved it.

Everything you need including the staff coming to your villa to cook an awesome breakfast

Great location close to everything!

Only one problem that the internet wasnt working!

I stayed in the 3 bedroom Ahimsa Estate and it has the perfect location (Literally next to Ku De Ta). It’s convenient to walk to the shops and restaurants and if it is any further you can request the driver to drop you at the location. Ensure you make bookings for transportation as they are sometimes unavailable.

As for the villa, there are a lot of mosquitos so make sure you turn on the burning coil.

Breakfast served in the morning is not too bad. I would recommend the Indonesian breakfast among the rest of the options.

My only complaint is really the water pressure in the toilet as it is low when I was expecting heavenly showers and they don't have hot water.

I would definitely stay there again if going with friends.

From the time we arrived to when we left we were cared for and looked after by the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Stewart, the owner is very passionate about making sure you have a wonderful stay. The villa layout and proximity to Bali Deli and Cafe Moka and other restaurants made The Ahimsa villas an excellent location from which to launch into a Bali holiday.
