My family stayed at Serene Villa recently for 3 nights and it was perfect. The location is ideal and central but quiet at night. The staff were relaxed and efficient and breakfast cooked in our villa each morning was very convenient. I recommend this property.

This is our third return visit, having stayed in Palm 2 on our previous 2 occasions.

For this visit we chose to stay in the recently renovated 3 br Villa Cendana. It was amazing and we were fortunate to have our dear friend Sucipta looking after us, cooking & serving our breakfast daily, cleaning up after us all. His friendship and love for my family is why we keep coming back. He is part of our family now.

The staff at Serene are second to none. They retain there staff which to me says something about the way the owners/management of Serene Villas run their business. Professional, courteous, very prompt service regarding accommodation query's and they obviously value their staff and look after them. My thanks to Nyoman Sudita who has looked after our bookings over the last 6 years and to jaya who I'm glad to see has moved onto a new role as supervisor. Also thanks to Sumi and the staff who turned down our beds and serviced our accomadation in the evening.That's good. The 100 yr reunion is on 17th. U interested? I'll organise a table. I was thinking we (boys) could go to reunion - girls to dinner. Maybe book some rooms in a hotel and stay the night. Just thinking

As for the accommodation - It's awesome. Value for money - excellent. My sister and brother in law also visited and stayed in Palm 2 on this trip. They loved it and were looked after by Wa, whom I can say provided their family with true quality service and made them feel welcome and comfortable.

Villa cendana is perfect. Large beds , pool, bathrooms - your own little piece of paradise in busy Seminyak. Air con TV room and great surround system for listening to music by the pool. You can lock yourself away in piece and quiet. Serene offer packages too. We received F&B US $150, food and cocktails were fantastic, BBQ dinner by the pool for 14 - amazing food and fantastic fun night and a beautiful Indonesian dinner. We also had a day trip thrown in - our choice of where and when and you get VIP service upon arrival and transfers to and from Bali airport ( which is now magnificent too).
Overall , for a family of five to stay in what I would say is a Five Star Villa (cendana) it offers great value for money.

Location is great. 5 minutes to jalan laksmana (eat street) and 10 minutes to Bintang Supermarket. 10 minutes to the beach. Best of all, the Villas are located in their own lane way with Villa Cendana being at the very end. Peace and quiet when you choose to lock yourself away in your piece of paradise. Very secure also.

Thanks again to Sucipta, who we miss already. We will definitely be back.

I can honestly recommend this place for large groups or families. It's the perfect Serene hideaway with honest, friendly staff to match.

My family and I stayed in the Garden Serene Villa when we booked a surprise Bali trip for my Dad's 70th birthday. We had a fantastic time starting from when we first walked in the front door of the villa... just stunning! My mum booked the villa and originally booked the one next door, which was accidently double-booked. The owner was very apologetic and booked us into the Garden villa, which was bigger, for the same price.

The villa was beautifully decorated, modern, very clean and with all the conveniences you would expect and more. The villa has its own kitchen with unlimited fresh drinking water, natural stone pool, beautiful green lush garden with deck chairs, huge open plan and al fresco lounge and dining area with large satellite TV with Foxtel (not that you need TV in Bali), 3 bedrooms each with massive bathrooms, free toiletries, a safe, and even bathrobes and slippers.

The location is very good - a 5-10 minute walk down Jalan Drupadi and you're on Jalan Laksamana, one of the main shopping streets of Seminyak. The awesome thing about staying in a villa when you're with a group of friends or your family is that you can get privacy in your room but you can also easily all hang out together in the shared areas.

There were many lovely local Balinese staff who serviced us - Yani and Ako cooked us a breakfast of our choice every morning. The whole villa and garden is cleaned for you every day. Also included in our package were a 30 minute free massage for everyone (in the villa), airport transfers, US$150 worth of extras (they will stock your fridge with Bintang using this if you want), a big seafood/meat BBQ one night and a huge Balinese dinner another.

A quick note about the things that other travellers complain about - geckos, mosquitos, thin towels, etc. When you travel to other countries you have to expect that things are not the same as home. When you travel to a tropical country like Bali, yes there will be more bugs because of the humid temperatures that insects thrive in, and yes this means there will be more geckos to eat them. Staff spray for mosquitos in the villa but you usually need to have mosquito coils burning at night-time too. And if you have a gecko or two, they are very cute and considered good luck. Regarding the towels, all of Bali is pretty much the same. Ours were fine but obviously not as plush as home. No problems. Enjoy the rest of the amazing experience and don't worry about nit-picking.

I cannot rave about this place enough and would love to live in a house just like it. It made it very hard to go home to our normal homes (in the cold of winter and no home cooked breakfast in the morning). I hope we will be back one day soon!

Room Tip: The Garden Serene Villa is a huge 3 bedroom villa with its own beautiful garden and pool. All three bedrooms are large with their own bathrooms. The master bedroom is the largest of course. We had three couples as part of a family group staying here very comfortably. I believe they have smaller villas for less people.

Celebrations are held often at Serene Villas and the staff take extra care to ensure that everyone leaves feeling like old friends. Thanks for answering some of the often asked questions by our potential new guests. Visiting another country and experiencing a different way of living is part of the overall Bali Villa lifestyle. Hope we have the opportunity to welcome you and your family back again soon.

Had a holiday in Bali a while back with a group of friends and stay at Serene Villa. Stayed at the Cendana villa which is an absolutely beautiful and spacious 3 bedroom villas with its own private pool in a tranquil setting. A perfect place for some R&R and the staff are friendly and helpful. The villas are luxuriously designed and facilities are well thought of, providing one with much to do especially when they have a huge collection of movies and shows which you could select from when you just wanna do nothing but chill out while having a cold beer or juice.

It is located just a stone throw away from some wonderful restaurants and shopping area in Seminyak, there is enough things to keep everyone busy and yet quiet and private enough for those seeking a place to rejuvenate.

Private massages can be arranged at the villa and we had a couple of sessions at the poolside which were very relaxing and absolutely loved it !! Bali has already been a favorite holiday destination for me and I am definitely looking at coming back to this hidden gem again whenever I come back to this lovely tropical island.

Being located in a quiet back street from all the action in Seminyak, keeps us true to our name "Serene" and that combined with the trained and ever helpful Serene Team means our guests will keep coming back to the place and people they love. Yes we have in-house Spa treatments along with private chefs to cook in your villa. What more could one ask for on a Bali Villa vacation.

Great service from staff here. Emails were replied to very promptly and Serene Villas was also very flexible with last minute changes. Stayed in Serene Villa Palm #2 (3-bedroom) for 3 nights, and Serene Villa Acacia (2-bedroom) for a night. We were pleasantly surprised with the gazebo in Villa Acacia, which Palm #2 did not have. Special thanks to our butler Wiparma who was very attentive, helpful and makes a mean Indonesian breakfast. Reception was also very helpful with all our last minute transportation arrangements and made our stay as fuss-free as possible. The butlers also helped move all our belongings to Villa Acacia for our last night in Bali while we were out. We really appreciated that! Location-wise, the villas were located in a quiet part of Seminyak but still a quick drive to restaurants etc (walkable too if you do not mind). We loved the picturesque walk down to the villas (both were at the end of the laneway) from Jalan Drupadi.

The only issue we had with Palm #2 was that the air conditioning in all bedrooms could be a bit more powerful (the ceiling fan helped). As 2 of the bedrooms were facing East, the rooms were slightly warm during the day. We did not have the same problem in Villa Acacia. Nonetheless, both villas were well maintained and we had a very comfortable stay here. In-house spa services were fantastic too!
