Our family of six (4 young adults 18-21) just experienced a wonderfully relaxing and fun week at Villa Banyu.
We so enjoyed the lovely staff that helped make our stay at Villa Banyu so comfortable and enjoyable. Naba and Banya catered to all our needs. They helped organise our adventures, organised taxis, always were happy to offer us advice and options. They were keen to ensure we all had a great stay. Breakfast was a highlight every day, and the villa is maintained beautifully.
The pool was clean and refreshing, we enjoyed playing pool upstairs and listening to music while watching movies, afl on the tv and having some Bintang ... made this little oasis a fabulously relaxing spot.
The Villa is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Seminyak and we always felt safe walking back from dinner. There are so many great restaraunts within easy walking - the location is fantastic.
To sum up - this place is worth it. Awesome facilities, great location and brilliant staff.
We just left Villa Banyu on Saturday 16th June, we were there for five nights, it was our first time in a villa in Bali and we really enjoyed it.
We travelled with my parents, my sisters, their partners and our three year old.
Location was great as we could walk to the main street Seminyak in five minutes, our street had little massage places and various shops for all the Bali essentials.
Amenities were great but we did have some problems with water pressure, we found that having more than one shower on really affected it. In saying this though the lovely staff did their best to rectify the situation.
The pool was a awesome, our three year old was in there by 9am every day and had no worries about the temperature. We had great space to lounge around, sun bake and read. Only down side is in winter by 3.30pm the pool is shaded.
We loved the little ponds and fish, not only calming but our little one enjoyed feeding them and looking out for them each day.
I would agree that some areas may need a spruce up, but like all places in Bali they are easily weathered by the warm temperatures and rain. There was nothing I would say that was really sub standard.
The highlight of this place? The wonderful staff Naba and Bayu, they were friendly, attentive, always smiling and ALWAYS willing to help! All nine of us could not fault them. They catered to all dietary requirements and even waited for us to all get up to cook us breakfast fresh.
We really could not ask for more!!
Thank you so much!
Above all we had a truly wonderful and memorable holiday here.
Three friends and I stayed at Villa Banyu in early May 2018,
The Villa is awesome, a nice pool, a great upstairs leisure area with a pool table and an awesome open living area where you can just hang out.
The Villa Staff were amazing, we were served an awesome breakfast every morning and any requests were promptly executed. A big thanks to the legends that are Naba and Bayu, they really contributed in making our stay awesome.
The bedrooms were all really clean, well maintained and very spacious.
I have read of some issues about the showers, when I got there the flow was not very strong, when I adjusted the showerhead it worked fine and had no issues with the hot water.
The Villa’s location is amazing, just one short alleyway (very safe to walk down at all hours of the day or night) and you were on one of the main strips of Seminyak.
Would I stay here again, the answer is yes in a heartbeat.
Fantastic stay. We booked 16 days at Villa Banyu. Location is superb. The staff was amazing. There was nothing they didn’t want to help out with. Breakfast was made daily and was very good.
A special thanks to the staff who did all they could to make our stay comfortable.
The villa needs a touch up. It’s nice but getting outdated. Paint needs to be redone. Woodwork needs a touch up. Showers need to be redone (pressure is bad and hot water runs out very quick)
Pool is very nice, but Dark in the evenings. Maybe some more flights around outside area would be a good idea.
The villa must have been amazing when it was new. Needs a lot of work to bring it back to that level again.
With that said, overall our stay was amazing. Even with the villa not being as luxurious, modern and upto standard as we had hoped. The staff definitely plaid a big part there.
The manager of the villa rental company will get a shout out as well for changing the AC in the mater bedroom when we complained that it was too hot.
That was much appreciated. A second AC unit would definitely be a good idea on the master bedroom.
Absolutely loved this place! Right in the heart of Seminyak, rooms were beautiful, pool was amazing and most importantly Naba and Bayu were so helpful, lovely and accomodating! They made our stay so much easier! I would highly recommend staying a Villa Banyu, you won't be disappointed :)
Awesome stay at Villa Banyu! Staff were super helpful with our questions and tips for around the area, organising drivers, picking up food or just whatever you are needing, -especially Naba he was amazing, great english and was super lovely! Rooms were great, a little noisy for the first night, just until you got used to the new sounds of Bali. The pool was great, nice and big for a group, little fresh to start but as we went in peak season it was lovely. We used the outdoor furniture by the pool all of the time, awesome spot to hang out, its just a shame it doesn't get a little more sun there as we ended up lying on the boardwalk to the kitchen to catch a little bit more sun. 5-10 Minute walk to the main st in Seminyak (Eat street), with shops and restaurants, and about a 20-25minute walk to the beach. It was great to experience something a little bit different than just your usual house looking Villa. We loved our stay at Banyu. :)
Gorgeous villa. The rooms are big and quiet, pool is large, open air lounge room is comfortable, and the pool table is great fun!!!! The villa is your own private paradise- and you'll never want to leave!
Staff (Naba especially) are attentive, kind and full of useful information, making them extremely helpful!
Would recommend to EVERYONE! 10/10
If you want your own personal sanctuary in the heart of Seminyak and need to house a big crew then Villa Banyu is an awesome choice.
It's only 100 metres from the middle of 'eat street " and has 4 beautifully appointed bedrooms plus a pool table when the weather isn't right.
Best of all is your personal butler Naba who is so attentive looking after your every need including cooking a great breakfast every day.
Villa Banyu is as good as it gets.
We holiday in Bali every year and decided to stay in a villa with our adult children and their partners. Absolutely beautifully maintained villa that is exactly like the pictures. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough to make our holiday a wonderful experience . It was fabulous having our own large pool where we spent a lot of time playing water volleyball or just lazing in. Very close ( 5min walk) to some of the best restaurants in Bali. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.
Firstly, the team at villa Banyu (Naba and Roni) looked after our every need. The property is very central to all of Seminyak's hot spots. Only a 5 minute walk to the Champagne Bar strip and not too far from Potato Head and the restaurants of Pepetitenget.
* Fabulous for a group of friends or couples (there are 4 large bedrooms each with own bathroom and lockable door).
* Location is awesome.
* Lovely open plan design, with a large pool in the middle of the compound.
* Loads of lounging space.
* The attentive staff (Naba and Roni).
* Integrated sound system with Bluetooth.
* Flat screen TVs in every room.
* Decent WiFi.
* You will never be waiting for the bathroom!
* The property is a few years old now and looking a little tired, but this does not detract from the experience.
* The outdoor bathrooms look great and are functional...not all that practical though.
There are so many lovely options to stay in Seminyak. Villa Banyu is one of them. You won't be disappointed.
We had an amazing time at villa Banyu, the best staff - Naba, Romi, Made (gardener) and Dewa the pool man were outstanding. Can't wait to come back. Really nice rooms and loads of entertaining areas. Thanks again Villa Banyu
We are about to end our 10 day stay at villa Banyu and have loved every moment.
Naba our host has been fantastic, he can do anything, from booking dinner dates, transport options, information about anything you need. Very helpful and he also cooks the most amazing breakfast.
Bedrooms and aircon are great with outdoor bathrooms.
The pool is amazing and full sun.
Lots of space to relax and sitting at the dining table every morning with all 7 of us was a great way to start our days.
Naba organised laundry and even picked up our Bintangs.
The location is one street behind eat street and couldn't get better amenities for the location.
There are restaurants and circle k down the road with a money changer.
The villa isn't cheap but shared with 7 people became the best value accomodation you can get in this location.
We loved it.
If your looking for the same option as us, do it.
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
