We have been to Bali many times, and this was the first time with our 2 year old daughter. We stayed in the Junior Suite for 7 nights.
The location is great; a 10 minute walk to the beach, close to great restaurants, and close to Eat street and it's shopping.
The villa was all that it appeared on the website. The layout worked well for us, as having a completely separate living area downstairs allowed our daughter to nap and us not feel as though we needed to tip-toe around. Downside is that there are stairs, but there is a door at the top, and you can now hire stair gates if this is a concern for you. There is a separate downstairs toilet as well.
The bed was comfortable, pool well maintained, and the staff maintained the room beautifully. Breakfast was delicious, and as was other food ordered through the villa.
Staff were helpful, with excellent english. We really couldn't hear any noise from the other Villas, so it is very private.
We were very happy with our stay.

A lovely quiet place to stay in a busy Seminyak for 10 days. Beach approx 5min walk away - but don't expect much - in this area, and be careful particularly dangerous at high tide. Close proximity to many restaurants, cafes and shops - although need to be careful of the traffic and motorbikes - pretty much all around Seminyak. The staff were very attentive and lovely to deal with every day. Thank You

I don't really want to tell the world about these wonderful townhouses, as everybody will want to go, and i will never get in again! I have always wanted to stay at these boutique villas,since stumbling across their website a few years ago..well I finally got my wish..fantastic communication and follow up requests with Ria on the front desk and we were all booked(with a few requests and adjustments, thank you Ria for being patient and obliging). Well, we were not disappointed, the townhouses are just as the site portrays, and the service next to none! Staff always smiling and courteous. Villas - Spacious and luxurious at a reasonable price, with the most wonderful breakfasts provided! We tried 3 different suites during our 10 day stay, and I could not fault any. Started in the 1 bedroom townhouse, then 3 nights in the Junior Suite followed by a night in the Executive suite, due to us needing an extra night. Decor is modern and very clean, and comfortable with every thing provided. Beds comfortable, wifi excellent, and money changed at going rate at front desk. A quiet area in the most central spot in Seminyak for easy access all the best restaurants and shopping..A 5 min walk to the beach or 2 mins to hail a taxi. We had a few meals inhouse, and they were more than pleasurable, always arriving on time with the butler setting the table and making sure all was to our approval. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, for a small (17 rooms) boutique villa. Quiet, plenty of room to laze around the large pool & jacuzzi, (altho' the suites had their own large pools). Some friends came to visit us here, and took one look around, and said...'whow! how the other half live....' We had the most wonderful stay, I can't wait to come back to this glorious place... thank you to Cicada for a memorable experience..

Room Tip: Stayed in 3 room types...all great...1 bedroom townhouse value for $$.

A recommendation from a friend lead us to find Cicada. We were not disappointed. Very private, tranquil and simply perfect for our romantic getaway in Bali.

We stayed in a one bedroom pool villa, that was HUGE! Only thing our private pool was cold. OK for a plunge after a day out to cool off but too cold to use at night. Didn't matter though we used the large pool and quietly enjoyed the balmy evenings there, without seeing another guest.

Service from the staff couldn't be faulted. A lovely choice of breakfast served in our room at our chosen time each morning. Room cleaned during the day, but also at night plus lit mosquito coils. Definitely above and beyond what we expected.

Short stroll to the beach, then 20min walk along beach to hit Melasti Street, where we ate at a beachfront restaurant most nights. If you're wanting a quite place to relax and enjoy a holiday, this is the place for you!

Thankyou Cicada. We will be back!

Room Tip: There are only about 7 villas, any room is a good room! Very peaceful.

We spent 7 glorious nights at Cicada. The staff were all extremely helpful and their English was excellent. We stayed during Nypei Day(Day of Silence) and were still looked after even though this is one of their spiritual holidays.
The location was perfect(lovely and quiet) and within a 5min walk to the start of the Seminyak shopping area. Only a few minute walk to numerous Restaurants. Salt tapas around the corner.
We had the rooftop Suite(initially I was going to book the Junior Suite but it was booked out). The Suite has to be the best room in the house. The Bali outdoor bathroom devine. The King size bed heavenly, the large Fridge handy to keep all your drinks cold.
The rooftop pool was large and always warm and inviting. The view was amazing looking down on the main pool and watching the squirrels climb the tress.

I could've moved in and never left.

I would recommend this to anyone who wanted a romantic time away.
Look forward to returning soon to the Rooftop Villa.

Thank you Cicada for a wonderful start to our holidays.

We are currently staying at Cicada In villa 2, after finding this place at the last minute and cancelling our stay at the Royal Beach, we're glad we did.

Cicada is at the Pettinget end of Seminyak, about 150m from the main road, secluded and peaceful but not too far away from anything, just perfect for us. The area around the main road now more build up with more shops and places to eat and all the footpaths have been fixed up so much easier to get around without breaking an ankle!

The villa is spacious and well equipped. The bathrooms and one of the toilets are outdoor though so be prepared for a few mozzies in the evenings. The second bedroom as at the back, close to the lane and a blind corner so does get a bit of noise with the scooters shooting past but as we spend minimal there it's not really as issue.

Main Pool area is fab, a tropical paradise, it's quiet at the moment so we have it to ourselves most of the time, it is a. Bali pool though so not suitable for really small kids as has no shallow end. The private pool at the back of our room though is rather small, kids got excited at the though of a private pool then were a bit disappointed with the size, more of a plunge pool than swimming pool.

Breakfast is good, you choose your menu and time you want served the night before and it arrives in the morning at the scheduled time, served in your villa.

Staff are friendly and helpful, esp Sandi, Hendra and Rai.

Overall we are very happy at Cicada and would definitely recommend it.

Thank you for your recent stay with us and consequent review.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and felt compelled to share your experience with others on Tripadvisor.

We have taken onboard your comments regarding the noise in the lane and as a result we are having sound proof glass installed in the Townhouse in question in a week so that this problem does not arise again. It is imperative that our guests have a good night sleep and not be disturbed.
We trust that this meets with your approval.

Balinese design dictates that outdoor washroom facilities be architecturally incorporated. We stand somewhere in the middle with contemporary design with a Balinese flavour which our guests love - the blend. Our staff methodically place coils in all outdoor areas at their 6pm turn down service to prevent any nasties annoying you - this lets you enjoy the real Bali in luxury.

Regarding the pool, no we don't have a toddler pool however the Pool is by far occupied 24/7 by children, some with floating devices which we have a par stock of and are readily available ( guests often leave them behind)
With the necessary parental supervision, we have never had an incident and the kids love it and the spa.
The plunge pools serve as an added bonus for a midnight cool down as the 25 m x 12 metre lap pool as a rule suffices the Resort's needs amply.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Cicada

I stayed here for six nights and loved every minute of it.
We in stayed in the Rooftop Studio which was perfect for 2 people.
Only a few steps away from the stairs to the Studio is the amazing pool and gardens. Great privacy and attentive staff makes Cicada a wise choice to stay. Close to Potato head and Ku Da Ta too.
