“Affordable Quality in spades - loved the authentic 'Kunja smile'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2011

We have just arrived home from a wonderful holiday at The Kunja, Seminyak and firstly want to thank other Trip Advisor holidaymakers who bothered to leave a review. Because of you we chose The Kunja. And what a great choice it turned out to be.
I believe Kunja means something like "little place in the forest', and it was a really tranquil
home to return to each and every one of our nine days.
The villas are huge, so are the bedrooms and pool, in traditional Bali style, and are meticulously maintained. All the little things such as the evening turn down, the towel changes, the breakfast service were all 5 star.
The location, while not beachfront, offers close proximity to everything and given we were driven wherever (locally) at our whim in a pristine vehicle, we found the location excellent. Plus hip restaurants such as Sarong, Metis and Sardine extremely close.
What sets The Kunja apart though is their service culture. We called it the Kunja smile.
They are a team of authentic, genuinely caring people. Everyone from the security guards to our room chefs and especially the front of house staff were consistently happy, friendly and helpful and made us feel like family while also ensuring we had the privacy villa holidaying offers.
When we first arrived they were in the midst of their 5th birthday party, (which we were immediately invited to join), where all the staff plus guests were enjoying a great celebration. We think it says a lot that they were so proud of this milestone which many business' would simply let pass.
The value was great and The Kunja really delivers on its' Affordable Luxury promise.
Thank you Yani, Oka, Suriya, Soman, Cita, and Sibang and to all of you. You are a lovely team of people.

Finally we did check out a new W villa while there as a friend was staying there plus a few other villas other friends were staying at and were glad we had selected the Kunja.

We stayed for 12 nights at the Kunja in April 2011 and were super impressed by 1) the luxuriousness of the villa's themselves and 2) more so the service that you get from the staff there. From start to finish we could not have asked for anything more.. the Kunja team led by Mr Oka were at our beck and call 24-7 and they thought of every little detail to make our stay with no doubt the best holiday we have ever had. We stayed in Villa 11 which was in a lovely quiet spot on the complex, we had complete privacy and the villa has everything you need and more to make for an unbelievable stay. We had our lovely breakfast cooked in the villa every morning and one night i arranged for a romantic dinner to be cooked in our villa, which was amazing! the team came in and transformed our villa into a romantic paradise, candles and flower arrangements floating on our pool and much more! These are effectively serviced villa's i.e its not a resort as you would imagine..but its better as you literally have 24 hour butler service and whatever you need, they will get for you... including a wide range of take away foods from local restaurants (i.e proper restaurants not McD's or BK!). The team at Kunja find just the right balance to service your every need whilst giving you that privacy that you ultimately are paying for. We even got invited to the 5th birthday party of the Kunja whilst we were there where you could see how great a family atmosphere the staff have created. If we ever go back to Bali there is only 1 place we will stay and i would recommend the Kunja to anyone considering a private villa booking in Bali. It is in the up market area of Seminyak that is undergoing some major development, but not anything that impacts your stay... and dont worry, you get chauffeur driven wherever you want to go locally included in your daily rate... we even got taken to the nearby seminyak night spot in a golf buggy one night when the Kunja cars were out on airport runs!!! they simply do anything for you there... Book now and dont be disappointed! Paul & Laura, UK ps Mr Oka is a legend! :-)

Room Tip: If you want heaven on earth, heres your place.....

The Kunja hotel (Villas) is wonderful.
My 2 friends & I stayed in a 3brm(3bathroom!!) villa for 6 nights. 2 of us left young children & husbands at home to fend for themselves.
We were pampered, feed, massaged and driven all over Seminyak! - accessed all from within the resort.
We were treated like Queens while staying there.
Each of our rooms were huge, as were each of our bathrooms!!
Our own private pool too!! We didn't want for anything
I am torn between keeping this MY little secret & wanting to share this gem with all my friends & family.
We were curious to see some of the other Villas & Resorts while we were there, but nothing looked as secluded & private as The Kunja was.

A must experience - The Kunja provides professional services and very polite and friendly staff. Every requirement is catered for. Thank you to Oka and all of the staff who made our stay a very memorable one. We will be recommending the Kunja to all of our friends and family!

We look forward to our next stay at the Kunja ... soon!

Stayed here for one night. The road leading up to Kunja is quite beaten up. It's also 10-15 mins out of town and their free shuttle stops running at 11 pm so you have to make your way back on your own. it's hard to walk anywhere from this hotel.

This place is good for families but not for a couple, as we were. We also ended up arriving at 5 pm and being told that the room wouldn't be available until 7 pm. The manager gave us each a free 1 hour massage to compensate, which was nice of him.

Staff are very friendly and the villas are lovely.

This was our second time staying at the Kunja Villas and it was as wonderful the second time around as the first. The one bedroom villa was outstanding and the service impeccable. The villa was very clean and comfortable. The swimming pool and gardens just beautiful - infact I took photos to try and replicate in my own back garden. It's not on the beach but the walk is only 15 minutes and pleasant with many restaurants, bars, shops, etc on the way. So exciting to arrive but very sad to leave. Without a doubt we will be staying at the Kunja on our next visit to Bali which will hopefully be next year.
