We have recently returned from 2 weeks in Bali and Lombok. We decided to spend the last week of the holiday in Seminyak and the choice of hotels and villas is overwhelming. Fortunately, some friends who know Bali well (they are building a villa in Ubud) recommended the Chimera Villa, and it was very good advice. Chimera consists of 3 villas, 2 2-bed ones and 1 3-bed villa, each with their own grounds, own pool, and entirely private from each other. We stayed in "Villa Orange". Chimera is located about 5 minutes walk from a busy street with restaurants and bars in profusion, as well as shops and other hotels. It's also within walking distance of some of the best nightlife in Seminyak, in the form of the Ku De Ta beach club and bar. Despite being that close to the "action", once you are within the gates of the villa, you could be miles from anywhere, it's that quiet and secluded. The facilities are very good; a lovely, long, clean pool, a beautifully laid out garden, courtyard, and villa, and a practical kitchen. The aircon throughout is really effective when necessary (and that's often!) and the whole effect is very tasteful. Things we loved: Beautiful layout, decor and furnishings Secluded and private garden Excellent cool pool A five-star standard of accommodation which would cost 5 times as much if this were a hotel. Things we'd recommend the management to keep an eye on: Refilling of soaps etc Clearing away the breakfast after it's finished! Making sure the smell of drains in the 2nd bedroom was banished before guests arrived. (It was dealt with as soon as it was mentioned) We'd like to thank all the staff at the Villa for a brilliant stay, we would definitely return!
We stayed in Three bedroom Villa. Very well kept.. very homey feel Private pool. ull Kitchen Staff was fantastic
We had actually looked at these villas around 5 years ago when they were up for sale and we were interested to buy a holiday villa as an investment and were looking at both Bali and Phuket. We finally decided on Phuket and bought a villa there but 5 years later we returned on holiday to Bali and decided to rent the 3 bedroom villa at Chimera Villas. Even though there was just 2 of us we werte only interested in the 3 bedroom villa as we already knew the layout and space available. Also the 3 bedroom villa is designer all the way and totally gorgeous with loads of books throughout on travel, interiors and history as well as novels. The house is decorated as a home and we loved the fact that it felt like some ones home and not a villa rental. We thought that possibly as the 3 bedroom seemed far more designed and decorated that the owner of these villas may actually use the 3 bedroom as his home in Bali. The space was incredible and the pool was huge at an impressive 16 metres and the garden was lovely and 100% private. Huge living areas that during the day, glass walls just came back and bought the outside in. All 3 of the bedrooms were spacious and with large bathrooms and outdoor showers. The staff at the villa are very sweet but the service is a bit basic compared to other villas we have rented. There is no chef or driver etc and the breakfast whilst good is a bit basic. To eat in the villa in the evening you have take out menus from surrounding restaurants and we one day ordered in which took 90 minutes to arrive. This villa offers you an outstanding experience and exudes that design element. There is so much space, room and privacy and it is well equipped. We will be back next year and will stay at the same villa again.
Our family has just spent 10 wonderful nights at Chimera Villa (Villa 3) where we were thoroughly spoiled by everyone who works there. The Villa itself is amazing and caters to your every need. The photos on the internet are good but in a way don't do the Villa justice. Wait until you walk in the door!! It is very spacious so there is plenty of privacy if needed. The pool is huge and the gardens reflect the very tropical setting. It is very well situated and close to plenty of excellent restaurants. The beach is only about a 5-10 minute walk. We would all go and enjoy another holiday there without any hesitation and highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a Villa in the Seminyak area.
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
