The staff at Kayu Raja are so friendly and attentive. The service here makes you wish that all your local businesses were the same. After seeing mixed reviews about this property I was pleasantly surprised at the level of service I received. The breakfast buffet (which some don't rate highly) was better than I expected. There is a large array of food and an egg station where a chef will cook whatever style you desire in front of you. The "hot items" were changed daily and range from American to Indonesian styled breakfast. In fact the restaurant both the food and the staff are excellent. I highly recommend the Udang Goreng - Grilled prawns with Balinese herbs. Absolutely delicious and the combination of the herbs leaves you wanting more. As a seafood lover I ordered this several times during my stay. The food was so good here that as a solo traveller I was quite happy to explore during the day and eat most meals either at the restaurant or through room service. The staff in every department are lovely, everyone always greets you and has a small chat & by the end of my stay I didn't want to leave them. Service is always very prompt and they are very accommodating. The rooms are kept very clean (housekeeping services twice a day) and are really spacious. The bathroom spa bath is amazing, and the shower is full of hot water - something I wasn't used to in a prior trip to Bali. I also found that the location was perfect for me. I didn't want to stay on the main strip of Seminyak as I like to stay somewhere a little more quiet, however it is close enough to everything and most importantly I didn't meet a taxi driver who didn't know where the villa was. Though just in case I would recommend taking their card from reception with you when you leave for the day.
The only downside of the villa is that there is a slight smell at certain times which I would think is a slight plumbing issues but it is easily solved by lighting a candle or some incense.
Even if there was more issues with this property (which there wasn't) I would still rate this villa as excellent. The staff are amazing and the management team should be proud at their hiring process as they have chosen exceptional staff.
I will definitely stay at the Kayu Raja again... in fact I think I will be booking it for my next trip in October :)
