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.
We were here as a group and were hosted by a friend. We loved the villas design elements. The rooms are spacious with an authentic Balinese feel.
The private pool are a good size and outdoor sitting area is very comfortable.Breakfast was good and room service was tasty.
We disliked other guests walking into our villa in the day time to make a noise complaint!
That’s right, it’s the first time ever I feel compelled to write a review while still at the place I’m reviewing.... simply because it is such a clear 5 star rating for this property, no discussion.
The Layar is not amazing ... it’s spectacular, it’s everything I ever wanted in a villa in Bali.
The staff are 6 star, the villa is clean, well maintained and very spacious. Wifi is top notch, super location and food is great. The Layar is relaxing and luxurious yet so close to the hustle and bustle, the restaurants and the shopping. Comfortable beds, warm pool and jacuzzi, manicured gardens, great showers and hot water, spacious kitchen with quality appliances, icy airco, luxury bathrooms, etc.
Did I mention the staff are out of this world? I did, but I just did again! Nothing is too much for them and even the smallest issue is rectified immediately.
I thoroughly recommend this property as the best I stayed at so far in Seminyak.... to be honest I’m sure to book again for my next trip!
Thank you everyone at The Layar, you made my holiday!!!! When I leave next week, it will be with a heavy heart!
Stayed in a 3 bedroom private villa for 6 nights. Fantastic place with everything you could ask for, from private chef, fantastic pool great Bluetooth sound system ect. The staff could not be more helpful and typical Local hospitality. The breakfast was either served in the Italian restaurant “cetimo” or you can have it cooked in The privacy of your villa we chose the restaurant everyday and its was perfect ( they make a great Esspresso Martini as well). Fantastic venue and highly recommend
Stayed in the 4 bedroom villa. Was beautiful and spacious. Very open plan living with the living room exposed to the outside. Great pool and lots of space for laying on the grass, sitting around a table, spa and outside loungers. Outdoor bathrooms (toilet, shower/bath etc) Loved the rain shower. Staff were attentive and helpful. Three bedrooms in the main villa and another the other side of the pool. We had a bit of rain and I understand there was a leak in one of the rooms and it also made one of the sliding doors difficult to close. Easy walking distance and they also have a buggy which can drop you off. Food was lovely.
The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Accommodation was as described - loads of room, great private pool, air conditioned huge bedrooms with large individual bathrooms. Buggy service was terrific and available on demand - even to take to shops or beach. Short walk to loads of restaurants and bars.
If you want to have a quiet holiday location together with friends with perfect service in a lovely villa with great garden and pool this is one of the places to go. The only disadvantage is the longer way to the beach and the open bathrooms which are fairly to warm.
There is nothing to fault here. The only thing I can suggest is better wifi strength so it goes into the bedrooms. Everything else is spot on. Clean fresh timeless design, this property is as described and pictured.
Stayed here for 3 nights - absolutely stunning top end.
The service was fantastic and the staff couldn’t be more efficient.
The perfect place to stay if you’re looking for a top end private retreat.
5 mins walk from the bustle.
I spent the last weekend in one of the Layar Villas, and it was absolutely amazing. From the first step into the villa where the amazing crystal clear pool faces a spatious and warm living area to the bed rooms which are large and give you the most of the privacy.
Staff was always ready to satisfy all of our request (mainly food and room services), and the location was just few minutes walk to the centre of Seminyak.
I will be back for sure, and many thanks for the fantastic weekend.
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
