5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2009

My wife & I stayed at The Kayana for 1 week in July 09 & there is not one thing we could fault with the place. The Villa was presented beautifully & everyday they cleaned & replenished our villa with new towels,toiletries & bottled water. Having our own walled courtyard & plunge pool was fantastic as it gave us the privacy we needed to relax & enjoy the surroundings. We were so impressed with the staff as they were so friendly & helpful & they really became our family during our stay. They would do almost anything for us at a drop of a hat without intruding on our privacy. We mainly ate in our Villa & the choices on the menu were great & of good value. The shopping & restaurant area of Seminyak is a nice leisurely walk away which we didnt mind doing but The Kayana offers to drop you off & pick you up if you arent up to walking. Taxis are cheap & plentiful as well. My wife & I travel around the world extensively & have stayed in some really great places but none as outstanding as The Kayana in appearance & service. We will be back.

My partner and I stayed for 6 nights at the Kayana in June ; we cannot speak too highly of this place ; the accommodation from our 1 bedroom thatched villa with our own garden and plunge pool - to the most attentive and genuine service we have ever experienced - was outstanding!

We have travelled extensively and have come to enjoy and expect the best in service - but the Kayana blew away all our pre-conceived ideas of great service - quite simply this is the best customer service we have ever received anywhere in the world. The staff are attentive, friendly, and genuinely try their hardest to accommodate your requests.

On our last night I secretly asked the staff if they could do something special - when we returned from a night out in Seminyak, we were met at reception, taken to our villa in their electric buggies and as we entered our villa the garden was covered in candles and the plunge pool was adorned with petals. Our butler had waited to welcome us and I have to say, we arrived back 1 hr later than I planned but she was still there to greet us.

The villas are beautiful, the garden is pristine and kept immaculately, the pool below the outdoor bar and restuarant is fantastic. The Kayana is very central for shops, restuarants, beeches and with their free shuttle service to the local area, it was perfect.

Would we go back to the Kayana ? absolutley ! We always try to stay somewhere new even if we return to the same area - but for the Kayana, we will definitely return one day and Im sure we will enjoy a wonderful experinece again.

Oh and nearly forgot, the spa treatments are fantastic and very reasonably priced. The joint massage treatment (i.e. couples together) are an unforgettable experience.

I travelled with my 14 yr old daughter, my friend & her 12 yr old daughter. We had 2 poolside villas.
The Kayana Villas satisfied us way beyond our expectations. There could be no finer service. The staff were attentive, obliging, humorous, engaging, knowledgeable, efficient, charming, smiling & humble, & proved very instrumental in the success of our holiday.
(They were proud winners of the Asia Service award, up against hot competition.) They speak warmly of their owners who also treat them with great respect & dignity, we liked that.

We had an air-conditioned pool villa which was set in a peaceful generous space. The villa itself is contemporary, extremely comfortable, immaculate, private, peaceful, bug free with divine pillows!!! Unlimited complimentary water was appreciated. The Dauh restaurant sustained us with generous & delicious breakfasts each morning.

Ayur spa is sublime, we had many treatments with our favourites being the 'Kayana' where two therapists blissfully massage away your aches of the day, the 'Hot Stone' & the 'Balinese'. We tried a few spas in the Seminyak area & although this is on the pricey side it is well worth the extra $10 or $20!

The Kayana is on Jalan Raya Petitenget & within 10 minutes walk of some of the famous hotspots like Ku de Ta, Sarong, The Breeze, Hu'u, & The Living Room. Also plenty of cheap but great dining in the area.
Very importantly the Bali Catering Company fed my coffee addiction brilliantly. There are two outlets, one next door & the other larger cafe 5 minutes walk away. The latter has the better coffee, divine salad sandwiches, the best pastries outside of France & wicked free range rotisserie chickens.

Great shopping in Seminyak is only a 5 minute complimentary drive away.
Also a couple of cool homeware type stores on our street.
The beach is a 5 minute walk where the sunsets are magnificent.

Just home 24hrs & craving the Bali vibe.
