This is the first time we have stayed in a villa and only our 3rd trip to Bali, and we were both really happy we stayed here.
From the moment we were picked up from the airport (ice cold water provided for the trip), to the time we left we found the staff to be very friendly, professional and happy.
THE VILLA:-
We stayed in a one bedroom villa. The bedroom is airconditioned, the bed- a king size- was very comfy. The bathroom is huge and semi outdoors with 2 showers and a huge bath. The outdoor area has a kitchen, fridge, dining table, 2 day beds and a ceiling fan. It's undercover so you can still sit out there when it rains. The pool was clean and cleaned everyday and a little garden completes the private oasis. Privacy is never compromised & it's quiet.
Breakfast is included and they come set up your table and cook for you. My wife loved the banana pancakes and I loved the Noodles. Variety is not bad and kept us happy for our week stay.
STAFF:-
Very friendly, polite, eager to please, willing to help and professional. The in house massage was a nice way to finish our stay there- although we went out for our massages everyday.
Turn down service every night complete with lighting the mosquito coils and they sprayed for mozzies twice a day.
Yes there are things you could pick on if you're truly fussy but hey it's the tropics so of course you're going to see the odd sign. But above all else it was very very clean. I will miss the finches and the white geckos.
THE GROUNDS:-
Beautiful and very Balinese. Welcoming and relaxing.
LOCATION:-
A 10 minute walk to eat street and yes the road just outside the hotel has potholes but nowhere near as bad as some reviews have suggested and the street has lights. The complimentary driver service took us to Spa Bali everyday for our massage no problems.
Its also an equal driving distance to either Sarong or Metis (two of the best restaurants in Bali).
Would I stay again?- you bet!

From the point of contact at the airport upon pickup right through to checking out, the service was brilliant,. The stay... relaxing and enjoyable. The 1bedroom villa was lovely and the layout suited a trio of girlfriends just perfectly with the order of an extra bed. We spent a majority of our time hanging out in the living area overlooking the pool enjoying the extra space you dont get in a hotel room or large resort. This enabled one of us to have a rest and the others to still enjoy the space. We felt the villa gave us plenty of privacy and although they were fully booked, we never heard any other guests. We throughly enjoyed having our breakfast cooked for us each morning and ordering in room service was cheap and enjoyable.... The overall stay was enjoyable... but... and i say this without sounding too negative... there were a few things i could get picky about if i were a resort critic and looking for 5 star luxury. However given the price we paid, compared to some other villas i'd researched and considered, we feel we definately got our moneys worth. So if you are looking for 5 star +, perhaps consider eleswhere but expect to pay somewhat more. It was just minor things we noticed like a chipped tile, discolouration of paint in some areas, one of the decking boards sunk when we stepped on it, the mirror blackening around the edges, that sort of thing... as i said, just minor things... the villas are not looking 'brand new' and sparkling as shown on the website but you must consider that they are a few years old so are a little tired. however the great open space, extremely comfy bed and beautiful soft linen, quietness of the area, and open spance bathroom certainly out weighed any tiredness the villa presented.
The one and only thing that i gripe about is upon checkout we had a bit of a dilema. There was a new staff on in training and with the language barrier and him not truly understanding the eftpos system he could not process payment on my visa card. He also had trouble processing my friends card and we only were able to use my other friends card to check out which meant she had to cover the cost for all three of us. Then (because the staff member was new) somehow charged us twice....! it was a problem at the time and kept us waiting and worrying for about an hour, but since has been rectified and funds are being transfered back.
Would i stay there again? if it hadnt been for the problematic checkout - sure... but given this i'm not sure if i'd trust that i'd be able to make payment upon checkout.
if you do stay here... some tips....
- shopping along the main strip wasnt all its cracked up to be. Do check out saturday and sunday markets at seminyak square.
- Geneva Department Store is a great one stop shop full of everything you'd find at markets and matahari and discovery plaza but on a much cheaper scale and prices are already preset so no bartering required.
- The Living Room is beautiful and divine - food is 5+ Star!!! Order the duck breast!
- The Hu'u Bar (opposite living room) is a great spot to enjoy a drink, has big cushions on lawn set amongst fairy lit trees to chill out on.
- Be sure to book the driver if you have plans, dont expect him to be available all the time.

We had a lovely time there. Hints:take your own tea and coffee so you have the independence of room service which is really cheap but nice to get a cuppa when you wake up. The street outside is rough but Bali streets are like that, and its only 50 cents for a taxi to Ku De Ta and with taxis (Bluebird) so cheap you dont need to walk. They will do laundry for you. Don't expect to run a full bath as the hot water doesnt last that long but showers are fine. The banana pancakes are yummy and they do good chips and i liked their seared tuna. Get your brekkie menu in fast or someone could grab the timeslot you want. If like us you get a torrential downpour there will be a bit of water come in, but that's being abroad for you! We could always get a car okay and they will arrange for dinner in Jimbaran Bay with free transport there and back which we enjoyed.

We stayed at Bhavana Villas for 10 days and loved it. We have been to Bali many times before but this time wanted to try a different type of accommodation. We would normally have stayed in a large 4 or 5 star hotel in Kuta or Legian but chose Bhavana private villas and were very impressed with the service and facilities. Everything was exactly as portrayed on the website. I was sceptical when I booked it but it truly was exactly as the website stated.

The villas are on a small side road (pot holed and bumpy) in Seminyak, walking distance to some very nice restaurants and shops. A taxi into the heart of Kuta only cost about 25,000 Rupiah which is less than $5 AUD. So for just a few dollars you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of Seminyak but still be close to the hectic hustle and bustle of Kuta. If you want to be in amongst the action, then maybe Seminyak is not the place for you. If you want to relax in the privacy of a walled compound with a sparkling pool and luxurious gardens then Bhavana Villas is the right place.

The villas are not new but are well kept. I have read other travellers' reviews and some have mentioned worn or old linens but our towels etc were fluffy and smelled beautifully clean and fresh every morning. The staff were efficient, friendly and always smiling. Breakfast was cooked for us in our villa every morning at the pre-arranged time. The pool was more than large enough for our needs and so convenient. In the larger hotels using the pool is often quite stressful as other people's children are running about, screaming or jumping on you, when all you really want to do is relax and enjoy a nice swim. At Bhavana Villas, the pool is your own and we enjoyed ours at all times of the day from 8 am until 11pm. There was no time restrictions. The villas do not have a bar or a restaurant on site but the room service menu is quite extensive and very competitively priced. The local convenience stores all sell alcohol and soft drinks which can be kept in your refrigerator.

While in Bali, I celebrated my birthday. My partner arranged with the hotel staff to fill the pool with beautiful flowers while we were out at the Safari Park. What a surprise when we returned to our villa, then we had a wonderful candlelit dinner by the poolside. The next morning, the pool boys returned to clear all the flowers from the pool and within 20 minutes it was all back to normal again. A fantastic memory of a beautiful relaxing holiday at the Bhavana villas.

These were great rooms pool fantastic. Make sure you take mozzie spray and a little balinese language aswell. The staff tried to help but were poorly trained, couldn't speak english well which made it hard to communicate needs, which was dissapointing also the car was never available unlike what it says in the brochures. Food was average so we ate out most the time, I think this would be great for return travellers to Bali who like there own space and confident in the area as there is no real service or help.
