The pictures on Trip Advisor are amazing but the actual property is even more amazing. It's 8 very large villas each with their own master bathroom, surrounding 3 living areas (dining, TV, living) with extremely attentive and nice staff and an attentive owner. I think villa #3 was the master and #1 was next to the rice paddies.
Everything is styled in high-end Balinese furniture and they all lead to this massive pool while being surrounded by local rice paddies.
The location is 20 min from Seminyak without traffic and 20 min to canggu without traffic. (Pro tip, make a left at the intersection leaving the property to go down to seminyak). Ubud was an hour to an hour and half depending on the day and time.
The traffic in bali is so bad that by the end of the trip we really needed a reason to leave this paradise property. We didn't want to leave and so much so we decided to stay an extra night to take it all in.
They are a professional crew with a world-class property. I highly recommend coming here when you come to Bali.
A group of 17 booked to celebrate a friend's 30th. We had such a great time, the photos do not do this place justice. A massive plus was the staff who were so friendly and helpful, they made our stay amazing. The chef was especially unique and all of us fell in love with his positive energy. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The only downside was the taxi drivers weren't sure where to go each time so we had to make sure we had pin dropped on our phone to show them, apparently there are a few different 'serenity's.
We booked Serenity River Estate for our family last month as a base for our stay. Everyone was amazed by the beauty and uniqueness of the place and I had several local friends mention that they had never seen anything quite like it.
All of the rooms are special in their own way and the expansive grounds are tastefully decorated with various pieces of art and furniture. Each room has its own "wow factor" and everyone was extremely pleased with the service from the staff.
The whole villa is like a private village, where you feel secluded and part of another world that the owner Guy has meticulously created. All of our guests loved the surroundings and enjoyed the Balinese feel of the place. A few had never been to Bali before and it was nice to watch them appreciate the culture through what the property has to offer.
The only small fault that I can mention was the food, which was rather simple. This may well be our own fault, as we didn't provide much in the way of direction for the chef and staff. What they did serve was fine for breakfast and lunch though - and considering Bali's numerous excellent restaurants, it's far from a deal breaker. The chef himself was very nice and did accommodate with the groceries that we had bought.
This is an excellent property for those who wish to stay in Canggu. I would recommend it for large groups and special occasions. The property makes for a unique experience that we will never forget.
From the moment we arrived at Serenity River all we could keep saying was WOW! This place is so special and pictures do not do it justice - much better in real life.
The villa is huge and designed with such style. Every corner there is art and artifacts to discover.
The staff were fantastic ,extremely friendly , whilst giving us privacy when needed.
The rooms are very well designed ,large and spread out so there is plenty of privacy even when travelling with a large group.
The pool is as large as most hotel pools and surrounded by a beautiful landscaped garden.
This villa is paradise. Hoping to return in the near future.
We stayed at the Serenity River Villa for 4 nights in April 2017, along with a few family members, following our wedding in Bali. We traveled with children varying in ages from 11 - 2, all of whom loved the pool and the villa.
This villa really has the "wow" factor - the area is huge, the rooms are beautiful and the pool is larger than that of most hotels!
The staff were exceptional - and cooked us great meals during our stay and went out of their way to help with anything.
This villa is really ideal for a few families looking to escape, without living on top of each other - we had plenty of room, and each bedroom had its own verandah and space to chill alone if needs be!
Location - wise it's also only a 15-20 minute journey into the heart of Seminyak so we felt we had the best of both worlds - a peaceful setting, but close enough to go and enjoy the restaurants and bars of Seminyak when we wanted to.
We would thoroughly recommend this villa to other families.
Amazing place !!! Everything is so beautiful and perfect. The fact that the rooms are spread out gives each host privacy and at the same time, the common areas are so big and the pool is breathtaking. Excellent food prepared by the chef. At the same time, not far from the airport, or Kuta beaches or Ubud. Excellent location. I will come back again
Our business booked Serenity River Villa for an end of year corporate trip. We stayed 5 nights and couldn't have been more impressed. It was a mix of people and everyone was simply amazed at the beauty of the Villa. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was a perfect trip.
The size was like having our own private hotel. The pool is 35 metres long! Every bedroom was huge. It was some room we didn't get a chance to use. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. So good we hardly left the grounds.
You will not be disappointed in booking this one.
Strict - no monies can be returned. In the event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavor to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
