I have no idea what all these people are going on about the alleyway not being lit up at night. Its fine, no there is no "street lights" in the alley way but its not as if you need a torch...unless you are seriously vision impaired, I'd love to know who whinges about these things ...we went from 30th Sep - 7th Oct, we went out every night and walked through the "dark" alley. You pass about 6 guards at each hotel/villa while walking through the alley. Its frustrating seeing the reviews as I am one of these people who will read reviews and research, probably too much. I'm glad I ignored them and honestly if thats all you can complain about??? a 3 minute walk down a alley that is not lit up like a night football match then go stay in a 5 star hotel. We had a pram and an 18month old and it was absolutely fine. Didn't even get a flat tyre...so there you go. There are more streets in Seminyak with less lighting!!! Such as out in the main strip where we saw TWO handbag snatches in front of our eyes. Im sure you would hear them in the alley if thats what your worried about haha. Walking is NOT difficult, simply put one foot in front of the other, I managed to do it night and day, no trips, no falls, not even our baby tripped....

If you researched you'd read that the villa is split over 2 levels so ppl you can't complain about your own lack of research.

Yes there are mosquitos but that's Bali....duh!!!! Be prepared, take mosquito coils like we did and burn them, we never got bitten once. I also had a plug in for the room upstairs. Its a pool villa, mossies like water, what do you expect?

The staff are MORE than willing to do anything for you, and I mean anything, I was not prepared and didn't book babysitters but guess what? The staff babysat and even the security guard for us, we felt totally at ease with this as we had a video monitor and they literally plugged it in at the front desk and watched our baby sleep. What more can you ask for?

We did hire a pool fence as once we arrived we realised it wouldn't be much of a holiday watching the 18 month old ever second around the pool, it also covered the fish pond inside, 1 week hire was $90US, cheap.

For me the breakfast was OK but I am a vegetarian who doesn't eat eggs, we had breakfast daily in the villa except the last day we went to sea circus...maybe alam warna should look at getting their breakfast from sea circus as its honestly the best food we encountered in bali, you won't find anything else like it in bali.

We can't rave enough about the place and we are sad to be home.

We will also be hiring non-slip mats next year, for adults the floor is fine but our 18month old took a few tumbles but by day 3 knew not to walk on the floor without us saying if it was OK or not.

Room Tip: Do not listen to ppl about the alley way, you can see! If you don't want to walk up stairs to y...

I stayed recently at a 3 bedroom villa at Alam Warna with my husband and three adult children. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the villa was beautiful, the pool fantastic, the staff were very helpful in lots of ways and very friendly. The location was amazing, only minutes walk to shopping, markets , restaurants and the beautiful beach. We would highly recommend staying there and would love to go back there when next in Bali.

Room Tip: Alum Warna is very private and has a calm, welcoming atmosphere, all rooms were well set out.

Service is good. Driver to pick us up in the airport to the hotel and he is very punctual.
Location is good. In Between Kudeta and Potatohead and just right behind Seminyak Square.
However lighting of the alley is very dim and made us really walk fast when we were out till wee hours and getting home by taxi!
Villa is clean with a huge pool and a jaccuzzi. Pool is too deep for a vacation villa! Once i step down the steps of the pool i need to 'tip-toe'! jaccuzzi is little dirty though...
Overall is Okay.

Location is good as it is just behind the Seminyak square, but it lacks the frontage and walking to villa at night was tricky as the lane was dark and some parts not paved.
The villa we stayed in was very nice and clean. Staff were very friendly, helpful and provided airport transfers, however we will not return because:
(a) The bedroom located upstairs, so every time we needed to get something from the bedroom, had to walk up ~20 steps and walk back down to living / pool area. The last few bottom steps were based over a large fish pond.
(b) Bathroom not fully enclosed and a lot of mosquitoes came in at night through the bathroom into the bedroom. We had to spray a few times each night.
(c) Breakfast was below average to the point it was better to walk to Grocer & Grind nearby to get eat.
Personal preference really, but we were not aware of the stairs until we checked in.

Room Tip: Good for those who don't mind the stairs to bedroom.

My best friend and I celebrated our 40th Birthday together with friends at the Alam Warna 3 bedroom villa. The villa was of a high standard with the small garden and pool area a stand out! We loved that we had plenty of room and all the comforts of home. The villa's are well designed especially with the natural air conditioning provided by the wet wall in the living space. It was pure heaven to relax after a surf or shop in the late afternoon in such a tranquil space!
Best of all were the staff!!! Words cannot express how kind and hospitable they all were. We can't wait to get back to Alam Warna to see all the beautiful staff and feel the stress free perfect location again. Thanks so much for making our stay fabulous Fendi and staff.

Room Tip: The three bedroom villa is a very affordable option.

We first stayed at Alam Warna in June 2010, that time with our three adult children.
This time we just went by ourselves and from the time that Nyomen picked us up at the airport till the time he dropped us back, we had nothing but great comfort, friendly service and fantastic food at the restaurants all so close to centrally located Alam Warna.
Fendy, as always, was there to greet us and Iluh was ever present to attend to our every request.
Nothing was ever too much for her or any of the other delightful and friendly staff.
Restaurant bookings, drop offs, advice, suggestions and breakfast were all reliably taken care of by Iluh and staff.
The rooms were just as well kept as they were two years earlier although the mattresses could be a little softer.
This time we had the purple room and what we love about Alam Warna is that the villas are luxurious but still true Bali.
If you just want to spend some time relaxing, in private, by your own pool, then Alam Warna is the place to book.
It just keeps getting better and we will be back again.

This was our first time in Bali. With 2 teenage girls and a 1 year old we were a bit nervous. The Alam warna was just great. We had our own space and it was quiet. The staff were wonderful and Nyoman the driver was available any time we asked. The staff made our stay a delight and we are looking at going again next year and will be staying here again.

Room Tip: We had the two bedroom villa with private swimming pool
