“Sanctuary, Service & Serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

My husband and I just returned from 6 magical nights at The Kayana.
I’m no stranger to Bail and have done a fair bit of research over the years for accommodation that is the perfect balance of location, price and facilities.
We like this area of Bali (Petitenget) as it is just enough out of the way to be peaceful and right in between the best eating and entertainment in Bali. The W next door, Potatohead four doors down Merah Putih, Sarong, Sardine, Metis, La Lucciola all within walking distance or a short scooter ride.
We organised a pick up from airport, which was comfortable and prompt, and although we arrived before 2 pm our villa was ready. We were given a very detailed and appreciated tour of the facilities and lucky us, a cool and refreshing welcome drink. Gorgeous villa, well appointed with a flat screen tv and other mod cons like a Bose speaker dock. The villas are almost 7 years old but you wouldn’t know, they are very well maintained. Also the property is most suited to couples with only one of the villas being 2 bedroom – so this property is certainly more tranquil as a result.
A couple of things to mention here which really made this place a value plus was, free bottled water, free afternoon tea with lovely Balinese sweets and nightly turn down service. So lovely. We had our daily inclusive breakfast at the restaurant - were we able to dine in the villa if we so wanted.
Another benefit of Kayana is the fact that they had a larger communal pool for a bit of change of scenery, but honestly as our villa, gazebo and large pool were so comfortable we didn’t need to move!
We had a massage at the spa and it was a great experience – the staff are very professional and the products used were also of a high quality. Yes you pay a little more but again the quality and experience is worth it, including the shower and lovely ginger tea and cookies at the conclusion.
Finally, the staff. The reason I love Bali so much is for the people, and the staff at Kayana were no exception. Warm, kind, thoughtful and efficient. Particular mention must go to Prasana and Agung at the restaurant who were always genuinely engaged in what we had planned for the day and was lovely to learn a little about their families.
All I can say is I can’t wait to go back!

Room Tip: we requested a room on the opposite side to the W - room 825. Very quiet.

Based on prior reviews, I made sure to request a quiet room and was pleased the request was honored. The property is beautiful, the staff attentive, location amazing, any minor issues we had addressed quickly. I would definitely stay here again. One piece of feedback I gave to The Kayana is that the hair dryer and iron were of very poor quality, which was a big surprise given the quality of the hotel overall! This is a very minor thing, of course. They were also easily able to help me arrange a scooter hire and nanny.

Room Tip: Request room away from the side road used to transport guests to the W - it's busy day and night...

A big thumbs up for the place. Wonderful staff n service and the room is so nice w a small private pool. Very good for a family trip. Breakfast is so nice as well. Although not spoilt for choices they have reasonable selection for us to choose throughout the whole week of our stay.

We went on our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent. We loved the fact that we could have breakfast outdoor in our villa. The Kayana is well maintained and their villas are of a high standard. It is also located in a central location with restaurants and bars nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms on the left are quieter.

Lovely villa but plot size is small compared to other villas. Staff are helpful and accommodating. Chef made special order meal for my 2 year old daughter. Close to Cubbyhouse kids club where we left our daughter there most ofthe day.

Booked Kayana after shortlist ing a few other villas within Seminyak. Good location with a few good eateries nearby.

Plunge pool villa is luxurious and spacious for us, family of 2 adults and a child. Best to have a la carte breakfast buffet within the villa, at your requested time.

Staff are attentive esp the butler. Good pressure at the rain shower.

We had a room near to the back and got an odd number unit away from the W driveway.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary but there was nothing special provided, not even a flower on the bed.

Not a child friendly place as there are no bikes for kids and you can only ride outside along the ridiculously busy roads. Quite a distance to the beach.

Pros
Butler service is commendable. Fast & efficient.
Always with a smile
Breakfast in villa w good variety
Good sized heatable plunge pool
Romantic & extremely private
Good for honeymoon
Reasonable shuttle service within the area (subject to availability)

Con
- The so-called afternoon tea was pathetic (4 small cupcakes)
- Foodservice lady on the phone was very rude. I requested for 3pm afternoon tea as we are leaving by 3.30pm. She replied rudely on the phone - only for 1 person, only 1 set. My villa has 2 adults. I was puzzled & a bit upset
- late check out need to be confirmed everyday at the reception. Although I have specified it way before arrival

All in all, a reasonable place for honeymooners. Not for family.

good location along seminyak area. There is a driver that you can book to travel around the area and to the various restaurants. Walking distance to Potato Head and Biku as well.
Although I find that the room is a bit old and cracks on the marble flooring.
