Great service! Great location! Stayed at the one bedroom villa! Spot on with everything! Thought the washroom entry from pool could do with a door though. Front desk helpful.... Specially Diya! She went out of the way to explain everything and accommodate extremely late check out request of ours.

This is my first review and i guess i thought id start after having had such a wonderful holiday in Bali. I stayed at the Ahimsa hotel with 2 other families and we all had amazing villas. The convenience of us all staying next to each other made life so much easier, we'd start our next days and be ready together.
Each villa has its own pool with a great outdoor open space area, having such a big group was ideal as we would all swim and have drinks by the pool without feeling boxed in.
What impressed me the most was how close Kudeta and many other restaurants were from the villas.
The only complaint i have is the traffic in Bali! The Ahimsa is smack bang in the center of it all and unless you ride a motorbike it's hell getting around. Thanks Ahimsa for a wonderful holiday and we'll definitely be back!

Had a week here with my partner. Chose a 2 bedroom for more space. Whilst not cheap, its located conveniently to shops, cafes, spa's and restaurants. Breakfast included was not that good, so didnt venture for other meals. Free airport transfers and lifts to local spots was welcomed. One gripe was we were constantly being interupted for our breakfast order or turn down or mossie coils or tidy up! Good size pool.

Stayed here for a week in a 3 Room villa with a group of 7 close friends. We had an amazing time. Just down the road from Bali Delhi, short walk in any direction to the sights and sounds of Seminyak. Breakfast served daily in the villa was a great start to the day, the staff were extremely friendly and made us feel at home. Love Bali and love the Ahimsa.

This is a nice place.

I have used two types of villas...both one bed pool villas with living/dining/cooking spaces. Both are walled and completely private. Attractively furnished in the 'modern' Bali style.

Breakfast is in the villa and very good. Room service menu available until late. (Note: no restaurant on site). The Bali Deli is virtually opposite for those who like their home comforts.

Best thing about the villa...the pool...just big enough to swim a few strokes and chill.

Recommended.

Don't get me wrong this place is good and in a good location, the pool big and the open air layout nice but bad for
Mosquitos and heat! Outside shower is a novelty but you don't cool down as the bathroom is outside also!
Service was ok, we were on our honeymoon so we were expecting a little more!
We stayed at sun island villas in seminyak in October 2012 and honestly we rate that higher! It had far better facilities and service plus all rooms were air conditioned!
Ahimsa is nice, pool is big and location quiet
Not worth the nightly rate - Would we stay again.. Sadly no

We love Balinese open style design, so the Ahimsa villas were perfect. We chose the Ahimsa primarily after looking at the website and secondarily due to the location...
Nice and quiet, nobody bothering you every five minutes... Loved the swimming pool and the layout of the garden. Some mosquitoes but what do you expect, you're in the tropics.. All in all a great place which suited us down to the ground. Our trip was July 2011 sorry to be so late with the review
