Reviewed 29 April 2013

We have just returned from the most amazing holiday at Kembali Villa's! Having never been to Bali my family and I were a little reluctant to book online however these villa's and especially the staff made our holiday the best we have ever had. We travelled with a close friend and between us we have 4 children between the ages of 9 and 16 which can make it a bit difficult to find entertainment to keep everyone happy. Fortunately for us the spacious 3 bedroom villa catered to all of us whether it was lounging on the comfy couch reading that "i'll get to it one day" novel, watching a DVD (reception has a great selection) or enjoying our very own cool and beautifully maintained pool. The rooms and pool were cleaned thoroughly every morning by the lovely staff and nothing was too much trouble like extra beach towels or organizing a yummy BBQ cooked in our own Villa by a very talented chef. Kembali Villa's is also in a great location. We walked to Seminyak every day (about a 5-10 minute walk), for lunch, and dinner and of course to shop! We would like to thank all of the staff at Kembali, in particular Kompi for being so fantastic and helpful and Yudi for her awesome breakfasts. Nothing was too much trouble whether it was organising massages, taxi's, and even a gift of flowers for my 40th Birthday, this was truly the most beautiful and relaxing holiday we have ever had. Can't wait to visit our friends at Kembali Villa's again very soon!

Thought I would include some helpful food & shopping suggestions for those first timers to Seminyak (especially those travelling with Kids):
For food:
Potato Head (Lunch)
Ku De Ta (Dinner)
Khaima (Dinner)
La Lucciola (Dinner)
Café Bali (Lunch)
Bali Bakery – Seminyak Square (Lunch)

For Shopping:
Seminyak Square Markets
Oberoi Markets
Palma
Uma & Leopold
Lulu Yasmine
Scandi (jewellery)
There are also some great kids shops and heaps of surf shops like Quicksilver & Rip Curl.

Oh and if you have kids don't forget to go to Waterbomb Park (like Wet'n'wild on the Gold Coast but our kids reckon this was "heaps better"!)

Enjoy ☺

We have just returned from 8 days at Kembali Villas. We had Villa 6, 3 Brm. I cannot believe the attention to detail at this boutique group of villas. It started from the moment we arrived - Kompi greeted us with a smile that instantly confirmed our decision to stay at Kembali had been the right one. Every recommendation, whether it be for meals or services was fantastic, the staff knew all of our names (4 adults, 2 children) and couldn't do enough for us. I wish we could have remembered all of their names as they all deserve to be mentioned. The villa and our swimming pool were very spacious, practical, extremely private and are kept immaculately clean. The modern Balinese decor provided us with a real feeling of tranquility. We ordered groceries in on 2 occasions with both orders being delivered within hours and exactly what we had requested. Breakfast was made for us each morning by Iluh - don't miss out on her banana or pineapple pancakes!
Even our security guards knew who we were and where we were staying, always helping with transport and ensuring our health (when one of the children became unwell) every day!!! Guisti was a real favorite with us all! This was my fifth trip to Bali ( the first trip for the other members of my group) and my far the best place I have ever stayed. Kembali - your staff are your greatest assett and you should be extremely proud of them all. This place will be highly recommended to all family & friends. Thank you

We stayed here for the first 4 nights of a 2 week holiday. We were there with 2 adult kids of 20 and 18. We were in villa 7, specifically chosen due to its configuration of a tv room between bedroom 2 and 3. We couldn't have been happier. The villa is gorgeous. It's spacious, modern but with Balinese features, all rooms had ensures, the pool is huge and inviting and the staff couldn't be more accommodating. They provided mozzie coils and personal repellents. The breakfasts were lovely, and it truly was an oasis.
We have stayed in villas before (currently at Kunja villa which is equally beautiful - hard to choose between them), but will definitely be back.
If I had to look for a negative, it would be that it is located along a very narrow private road next to the Oberoi, so flagging a taxi is not possible. No big deal really - the reception call for one anyway. Other than that, a great location.
Can't wait to go back

We are very pleased that you and your children enjoyed your time here. All the staff strive to make Kembali a quiet and relaxing place for a holiday.

It's not often you get to wonder if the paving stones outside your villa are slightly too close together for easy steps, but Kembali really is that close to perfection that there is nothing else to worry about.
The Kuta area is definitely on the touristy end of Bali, (but better than anything closer to the airport) and visitors want to be away from the main streets where the noise of the taxis and bars could be very disturbing. Kembali is therefore ideally located just a 10 minute stroll from the beach or the many restaurants but to be honest, you will barely bother as breakfast is prepared for you by your maid (don't miss the banana pancakes) and all the local restaurants will deliver quickly and cheaply.
The staff are always smiling and ridiculously helpful (even to the extent of my dialing reception rather than an outside line to get dinner delivered one night, the lady didn't explain my error, but simply wrote down my order and phoned it on through to the restaurant so I only realised my mistake when the receptionist strolled in with our dinner!)
The villa's themselves are idyllic, the pool was of a good size rather than just a frustrating plunge thing you won't bother to swim a length of and even the minibar was priced at just a small premium above the local supermarket meaning you didn't worry about grabbing something if you were too lazy to stroll out (but if you need shopping your maid will stock your fridge for you!) : in fact the whole stay from the price of the villa to the food in the local restaurants felt like pretty good value.
In short. Very very difficult to beat and we'd return to Kembali in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Any villa would be good. We stayed in Villa 1 (2 bed) and simply no complaints. Keep in mind, this i...

We have just returned from a week at Kembali Villas. The whole experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend them to travelers wanting to experience the best of Balinese decor and hospitality at a reasonable rate! The villas are beautifully designed for privacy with water features, spectacular indoor and outdoor living spaces, large comfortable bedrooms, clean and well equipped with air con. Well maintained pool with covered day bed. What is most special though is the level of excellent staffing. Nothing is too much trouble to organiz. We had our own villa staff who made breakfast every morning with fresh juices and choices of Indonesian or full English, we organised massages, beauty treatments and yoga to come to us - very reasonable prices, and the villa management organised transport and dinner bookings as required. Nothing was too much trouble! I would highly recommend the VIP transfer from the airport and a visit to The Potato Head Beach Club near by. The villas are not on the beach but very easy to get to the best shopping and eating places in Seminyak. They are private and patrolled by security so very safe. Thank you Kembali for an amazing holiday! Truly Bali Bliss!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Villa (2 adults/2 teenagers) for 7 nights. We had the most relaxing holiday. The villa was very comfortable, comfortable beds, swimming pool was large and the water temperature was perfect, loved the outdoor shower which was surounded by nature and exotic plants, loved having a shower in the rain too. The staff, especially Anna our maid were amazing. The staff moved around us in an unobtrusive manner doing their thing (making breakfast, cleaning pool and bedrooms) and were all so happy and genuinely caring people. Kembali Villas are close to everything in Seminyak. I highly recommend this property and we will be returning soon. Thank you Kembali for the best holiday destination. It was only 7 days but felt like longer truly relaxed.

Room Tip: All villas are truly luxurious.

We stayed at Kembali villas (villa 2) for 5 nights mid December. From the moment we arrived until our transfer to Sanur, it was a fantastic.

The small group of 7 Villas are in a little Gang not far from Kudeta (next door to the Elysian).Once you get familiar with the little lanes, it is very easy to to get around Seminyak and one of the gangs will take you right into the heart of "Eat Street" - we used it most nights.

You are greeted by friendly office staff on your arrival and whisked straight to you villa, where you are given helpful information on the setup, breakfasts etc....but you wont be listening, your jaw will be dropping my the amazing sight as you walk in. My difficult to impress teens were speechless.

The set up is a main open air lounge/ dining/ kitchen Bale. The decor is sleek and modern, but still retains a Bali feel. The lounge is huge and very comfortable. The fans keep the area cool and breezy, even in humid December conditions. The lounge area faces on to a brilliant blue pool, which gets enough sun during the day so as to not be icy cold.

You then walk a short way over to the two bedrooms, which are airconditioned (ahhh, lovely). Again, both rooms are fitted out in a modern style and fit in with the overall look of the villa. There are big wardrobes and plenty of cupboard space and a small safe. The beds were firm but not rock hard. I found them very comfortable.
The bathrooms are semi outdoor and whilst not large, are modern and very clean. the waterfall shower is gorgeous.
Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs. The lounge is equipped with a BOSE sound dock and the WiFi reception was excellent whilst we were there.

Now to the staff - absolutely amazing. So kind and helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The office was staffed 90% of the time (that we could see) and the Security guards were always visable. We felt extremely safe there.

The housekeeping staff are in and out during certain times of the day - usually in the morning, then again early evening. You are given a schedule of the times they will be in (eg pool cleaning, mosquito coils, general cleaning). If you are seeking privacy, all you need to do is place the "Do not disturb" sign on your villa door and lock it. The staff are friendly, but discreet and at no time did we feel intruded upon.
We chose to have breakfast included and every morning Ari our maid came in to cook it for us. I felt like royalty. We chose eggs most days. My two teens also had the pancakes. All was well cooked and very enjoyable. You almost get too much food!

Whenever we needed a taxi, we just called down to the office who would arrange one and call us back once it was ready. Thankyou also to Ika for helping us out with many questions. We also arranged a day trip to Ubud and the Kembali staff sorted out an excellent driver (Ketut) for us.

We loved Kembali and would go back there without hesitation.
