The Ahimsa Estates in Bali are simply perfect. Owned and operated by an Indonesian speaking Australian guy, the Luxury Villa accommodation provides tranquility and privacy along with everything we needed and more. The super friendly and caring staff are part of a Dynamic Team environment where you feel like you are part of that team. Everything, and I mean everyrthing is either on hand or only a 5 second phone call to reception away. The grounds and Villas are superbly presented, maintained and refreshed on a daily basis and promote you to fully relax in your own world. Our kids (10 & 12) were taken in by the staff as if they were there own and given the same courtious and friendly service as us. The Ahimsa is one of the best places we have ever styayed and without a doubt we will be back soon where I know the same staff will greet us with open arms and beautiful warm smiles.

My husband and I spend a lot of time in Bali and over the years have stayed everywhere from the Bvlgari/Istana/Legian etc and have just returned to the Ahimsa JL Kunti. This was one of the first Villa style accommodation setups (13 years ago) and is partly responsible for redefining the way people expect to travel these days. 13 years ago this was at the forefront of modern design and has recently been refurbished - proving it was well and truly ahead of its time back then and the design is still copied today. All the usual inclusions one expects from a a superior operation is delivered with style and with a smile. Made and all the staff (Housekeepers/security/gardeners) were just gorgeous and nothing was ever a bother. We booked last minute and as a result needed to move to the Ahimsa Estate for the last night. The move was made incredibly easy and initially we didn't want to leave but it gave us the opportunity to check out the Villas close to the beach. talk about location, location, location! Right next to KuDeTa but far enough away to have a quiet and peaceful sleep. Our new villa was smaller, no grassed area but beautifully paved - Not too slick or too try hard, just perfect. The established trees in both the properties are a major bonus. The Ahimsa Villas are an exceptional choice and certainly will not disappoint. 1 bedroom villas, Villas for families or groups, whatever your travel requirements, do your best to stay, you will not be disappointed. I HIGHLY ADVISE AND RECOMMEND THE AHIMSA VILLAS AND WISH I WAS BACK THERE RIGHT NOW!!

Had the pleasure of staying at The Ahimsa Seminyak for two peaceful nights with my husband and children, aged 2 and 4. Our villa had 3 rooms and our stay was relaxing in pristine luxury! The children played in the pool, we lazed in the pool on blow up chairs whilst our choice of music was playing. We dined by the pool and ate breakfast - made in our villa when we were ready.

The four poster bed - which at turn down service time had the sheer curtain drawn around it and the candles were lit, made our room seem ever so romantic.

There is nothing to make this hotel better, we had a fantastic time and can't wait to come back. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa for young families.

I am writing this review from my villa in Ahimsa....what a wonderful place.
Everything you need is just a 0 away, you can order food from nearby restaurants, reserve resturants for dine out, book a free transportation just calling the angels at the reception.
The villas are great and the breakfast in the morning is a treat.
I really suggest this place

We stayed in Villa 1 in Ahimsa Jln Kunti, which is right next to the street so as you can imagine, we can hear the motorbikes until wee hours of the morning. It even drowns out the TV! So although the place looks nice, the ambience is spoilt by the noise which doesn't give the experience of a nice relaxing seminyak holiday. I would expect that kind of noise in Kuta and Legian, but not so in seminyak.

Another thing that spoils the holiday is the number of mosquitoes there that doesn't seem to care about how many coils you light up. And since the living dining and tv area is in the open, relaxing watching the tv was not a very pleasant experience. My baby came back with lots of marks from the mosquito bites.

Maybe its the time of year, but Bali was so hot when we were there. The high ceiling fan in the living area didnt seem to do much help.

I also notice there were lack of facial tissues in the main areas. I noticed this because I have young children running around making a mess and I have to run into the bedroom to get tissues everytime.

OK, enough about the bad stuff. The good thing about the place is that it is rather spacious, and very clean. The beds are very comfortable. The set up is modern. Big plasma TV with DVD player . The breakfast portion was very generous and tasted good. There is free shuttle when there's availibility. They did give a free massage in the villa. And another good thing they have free flow of hot and cold drinking water. They also fenced up the swimming pool upon request due to small children. The location is convenient due to the fact it is close by to shops and restaurants...just the noise from the street that was bothering us. And there was another spa right next to the Ahimsa Villas if you want to try. I have not tried it, but they did have a promo, buy one get one free. The staffs are very pleasant and accomodating.

My wish list if I go Ahimsa again, choose inner villas so not much noise hopefully. More fans or mobile air conds for living area. And they need to do something about the mosquitoes.

First time in a Villa in Bali and definately NOT the last. This place is just like the pictures on their website if not better! Service was faultless, picked up by driver from airport with cold water and cold face towels ... what a start to our amazing holiday. Staff were very attentive. Breakfasts were amazing, eggs, pancakes, nasi goreng, muesli, yoghurt cooked to your liking in your villa. Pool was larger than I expected and not too hot like the hotels ones can get. Plenty of sun on the pool and plenty of shade if you need it too! Best of all no more trips to the supermarket to buy water, all provided in a chilled purified water cooler. Can order take away from your Villa just ring through what you want and delivered hot and very reasonable priced. Laundry prices were reasonable. Free trips to Kuta and Seminyak. Bali Deli (to die for pastries, cheeses, cold cuts of meat etc) and money changer right across the road. Loved this place so much. Could not fault anything. Apart from lots of mozzies .. but just keep spraying and light mozzie coils (they provide these free of charge). Let me know if want more info.

Been to Bali many times, but this time I just wanted to relax, and the Ahimsa was the perfect place - our own villa, walled garden, private pool, fabulous design, very romantic, breakfast cooked at our villa, free wifi, transport anywhere anytime we wanted it, very friendly staff, across the road from Bali Deli (for snacks and lunch), close to Murano Spa for great massages, ...

Could not have been happier.
