“Excellent Balance of Features”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

The Kayana has the quintessential appearance of a an Balinese hideaway, exacty what everyone who travels to Bali dreams of, but, even better than the photos on the website, by the way. It has a the grace and service component of a luxury retreat, just off a main road in Seminyak. As densely build up as Seminyak/Legian/Kuta now are, at the Kayana I felt we were in a world of our own. You can get to the beach by walking a leisurely 7 to 10 minutes or cutting down the driveway of the W Resort right next door. The hotel also has a shuttle service that will take guests seemingly anywhere around town, free of charge. To add to the beauty of this location were the 20 or so REALLY good restaurants right on our doorstep, which is key, because the traffic has gone bananas on that side of the peninsula and getting anywhere now takes 3 times as long as it did 5 years ago. Being able to get some place, let alone 20 or more places, on foot is a huge relief. Everything from design to amenities to linens was top quality. The staff could not have been better/more professional nor more courteous.

Room Tip: The ONLY down side, and I mean ONLY down side, isn't even the Kayana's fault, but, a few doo...

We were ushered to our villa by one of the service staff who took us on a tour around our villa. He very patiently went through every aspects of the room and services – switches, amenities, breakfast timings etc. I like that added touch.

ur villa was of a good size for two.

The bathroom was huge and I like the bathroom amenities provided. The bed was also extra comfy and it was nice to laze in, open the curtains overlooking the pool.

he pool – it is a small pool but the most awesome part of it all is…. *drumrolls* The pool can be heated up! All you have to do is call the service desk about 30 to 45 minutes prior to using and wala – you get a nice warm pool to soak in!

you can elect to have breakfast in your hotel room, right in the pavilion in the comfort of your villa.

It was all good from airport pick up to check in. We were pleasantly surprised by a petals filled bath tub knowing that it was our honeymoon trip. Butler service was prompt and discreet and the staff were always ready to serve with a smile. Our butler would always knock and ask for permission before entering our villa. The garden and pool of our villa is well maintained. It would be even better if the pool is heated. The turn down service every evening was also very nice. It was not as noisy as we thought staying near the reception. However, noise from some construction work near the villa was a bit disturbing during the day. The villas towards the end might offer more privacy. Another plus point is the breakfast! The breakfast spread was good and delicious! If only the breakfast reservation form has better format to indicate portions and the butler could inform us on the laundry timing. Other than that, we were satisfied with the villa and service received. The Kayana even provides driver service around Seminyak area which is a plus point. The Kayana is located in a good location near the bech and lots of restaurants. Do go to Warung Bonitas for delicious and reasonably priced local food which is just around the left side of Kayana. If you want to be in the center of action and enjoy some privacy at the end of the day then Kayana is the place for you.

We spent 10 days at The Kayana and we were very happy with the location and service. it's not beach-front but it remains in a quite and serene environment. however, the beach is merely a 10minute walk away...or a 2minute scooter ride! its located only a few minutes from Seminyak Square which has a few shops and restaurants. there are plenty of restaurants on the street and the staff will gladly make reservations for you at any restaurant and if you ask, they will drive you and pick you up! The Butlers are great and they visit your villa twice daily - once in the morning to open all curtains and once in the evening to turn them down. the Villas are gorgeous - all glass and the pool villa has a large enough pool to swim in. Gym is a little small but it has all the amenities...granted, you'll choose the Kayana for the service, quiet location and private villa. Also, the restaurant's meals are pretty good and fairly priced for a hotel. The Afternoon Tea was always a treat and you can have it delivered to your room or enjoy it in the restaurant/lounge. The staff is always polite, full of smiles and always willing to cater to your needs.

There were very many positives about this Villa complex.
We were greeted by the driver Putuat the airport. What a genuinely lovely man. Cold towel and Water served in the 7 seater. Efficient check in. Another cold towel and a drink in our room. Everything explained in detail. The room was well laid out his/her sinks large bathroom/shower and good storage. Bed was large and comfy and we had complimentary fruit every day. The ice bucket was replenished every day too. The outdoor area was very pleasant. Small pool but that's all you need to cool off. Loved the day bed area. Used this a lot. We opted for our first break fast in the villa. It arrived on time and served beautifully by courteous staff. We ate in the restaurant just once and the food was very good along with the excellent service.
If you can, go for a package you get. 1 hour free massage. Free daily laundry, free airport transfer free afternoon tea. Car service to Seminyak is excellent just book with them and they will take you any time (free of course).
Only one small negative niggle. There is some road noise from bikes along the main road and the side road that serves the neighbouring W hotel. Also a you do get some noise from Potato Head restaurant and music venue. We were leaving the day before Snoop Dogg arrived for a gig. They were warming up so could be irritating. Didn't bother us too much. If you like peace and quiet ask for a villa further down on the left hand side. We had number 806 quite close to the reception area. Apart from this I highly recommend the Kayana

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the left hand side beyond the spa for a more quiet stay

My partner and I have just returned from a week at the Kayana Resort. we felt very spoilt from the moment we we're picked up from the airport. Our room was ready for us with our early check in time so we felt like we had a bonus day! All the staff were beautiful, always a happy face and they remembered our names, we weren't a number. The Villa was beautiful, very private and the staff were discrete and would bend over backwards for you. thank you for making our long awaited holiday extra special. the location is in a great location for easy access to all the amazing restaurants in Seminyak.

We stayed for seven nights in absolute comfort. The villa was awesome. It was huge, modern and the air con was great. Our breakfast was served each morning in our yard by our butler and we couldn't have asked for more genuine and discreet service. The best part of our villa was our private pool which was utilised morning , noon and night. A lovely place for a romantic get away.
