There’s nothing quite like The Layar – an iconic 23-villa estate set in a coveted residential area in the heart of uber-chic Seminyak, moments from Bali’s best restaurants, boutiques and sunset beach bars. Each designer villa offers generous living space that flows freely onto the pool deck and is defined by tapering, sail-like roofs. The villas offer from one to four bedrooms, all with glamorous bathrooms and views onto wide gardens. Guests have the choice of ordering room service, booking a chef for a barbecue alongside their private swimming pool, or self-catering in their own equipped kitchen.
The Layar is an exclusive residential enclave set well back from a quiet road a short stroll from Jalan Laksmana, Seminyak’s culinary and fashion epi-centre. Bali’s best-known restaurants are all within easy walking distance, as are boutiques, galleries, gourmet shops and homeware stores. And mere moments away is the sweep of sandy Petitenget Beach, famed for its surf breaks and sunset bars.
The service was exceptional. The staff friendly and the rooms immaculate.The chef catered to my dietary needs and the food was fabulous.
Located close to Seminyak . I will certainly be staying there again.
these villas are so beautiful. The staff are so great, as soon as you leave they clean and you never even see them, like magic. I miss swimming in the big beautiful pool and showering in the outdoor ensuite bathroom. Comfortable beds and great location. We will be back next year. Highly recommend! Restaurant is very good too.
The Layar is one of those hidden jewels in the heart of Seminyak. I love the privacy and exclusivity of it. The villas are beautifully designed. The outdoor/indoor and contemporary loft feeling adds charm to the place. The beds super are comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious. I just wish they had better bath amenities. The wifi connection could be improved.
The whole experience of staying at The Layar was fabulous...from the quick check in to the villa with large private pool and fabulous gardens. Service is fantastic...you just dial 0 and a staff member is on hand to help with anything. A fabulous property.
We had a wonderful stay at the Layar. It was great to be able to walk to cafes, the beach and boutiques and then come back to the quiet sanctuary of our villas. In addition some of the best restaurants were less than ten minutes away by taxi
The service was good and the villas aesthetically very pleasing. Lovely small kitchen and bar for in-house entertaining.
I have stayed in many villas in Bali however The Layar is the one I will go back to. Perfect for groups - friends and family
Wow is the first word that comes to mind when you walk into these villas. Beautifully set out with everything you could hope for. I stayed here with a group of friends for a week during Nyepi.
The rooms are private and not on top of each other which is great when you are staying with friends. We stayed in the four bedroom villa.
Staff are friendly and are happy to accommodate any requests. There is a team of butlers that will shop for you, make reservations and are happy to organize anything you need. The villas buggy will drop you anywhere in the local area on request.
We all enjoyed spa treatments on Nyepi day which were great. ( I would recommend changing their relaxing music as it had babies crying, sirens, roosters etc which is the last thing I want to hear. I'm sure if I'd been bothered to say something they would have changed it).
The food was also great.
There were a couple of minor issues which once we spoke to the villa staff were rectified immediately showing us that they are flexible and accommodating to your personal needs.
Overall the six of us were very impressed with the Layar and would stay again in a second.
My wife and I stayed at the layar for a week.
It was our ten year wedding anniversary and I organized a surprise vow renewal.
The staff worked with my planner and myself to make the surprise perfect and so professional.
The villa is great and I would recommend this place to a seasoned bali traveler who understands that the bali builders miss the fine details, but the ambiance and vibe are spot on
Breakfast was great
Staff are perfect
Service is perfect
Location is great if you know bali well
Price on in house services are quite fair compared to other hotel prices

Swimming pools in villas were fantastic
We have stayed in many villas in Bali - these were clearly outstanding!
We stayed here for 5 wonderful nights in a 4 bedroom villa. The villa was amazing every room was fantastic, the pool was huge the gardens gorgeous. The staff were awesome and so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend these villas
We walked into the lobby and were greeted by the friendliest lovely staff. They explained absolutely everything thoroughly. The General Manager came and introduced himself before taking us to the villa. The villa was just beautiful spacious, clean and thoroughly peaceful and enjoyable. The breakfast healthy and tasty. The location is fantastic. We will definitely returning with our family.
