Villa Kalimaya is one of these places I will recommend for my friends and family! its unbelievable, how such a place in the middle od busy city can be separated and relaxing. the pool is amazing, full of green, flowers, great music, bar, garden, beautiful rooms, amazing bathrooms outside with bathtub and shower surrounded by bamboo trees and peaceful flowers... absolutely private. I felt very very special. This place is worth to visit, you won't regret it! Oh and I forgot, FRIENDLY STAFF, with wonderful manager :)
We stayed at Villa Kalimaya IV for a week for a family vacation with 4 adults and 1 child. The service was outstanding for our entire stay and we felt truly pampered our entire vacation. The villa itself is 3 bedrooms and the entire villa with the exception of the outdoor bathroom on the 1st floor can be enclosed and air conditioned. The whole first floor of the villa can be opened up for true indoor/outdoor living. Ceiling fans make this a very pleasant living arrangement. The villa is kept in great condition and the staff take cleanliness and mosquito management very seriously. There is also a private beautifully landscaped outdoor area with pool, jacuzzi, loungers, and an outdoor hut with a mattress and ceiling fan. Oh, and a sauna. Because, why not? The location is very central, near Seminyak Square. With just a few minutes of walking, you are amongst great cafes, restaurants, and even the beach and the Ku De Ta, which is about a 10 minutes walk away. The villa rental also includes membership to the Changi Club, which is worth checking out if you have kids because it has water slides, a kid's water playground, and loungers and free wi-fi for the parents.
The villa includes a butler, security guard, chefs, and cleaners. Our butler was our point person and helped set up breakfast every morning and dinners at our request, arrange drivers and outings, suggest itineraries, and even coordinate in-villa spa services. While any food we requested in the villa was extra, the cost very extremely reasonable. There is only a 20% service fee on top of the cost of food, which is the true cost of food that is bought locally. They keep receipts and tally this up at the end. In fact, all of the food and services in Bali were extremely reasonable. Imagine being able to order a freshly cooked meal or takeout anytime you want and having someone prepare it for you. Whenever there was a issue, the butler or Yani, the manager, would take care of it for you. My mother-in-law has Celiac's disease and is on a gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free diet and they were able to accommodate her. When they couldn't find almond milk for us at the supermarket, they provided freshly pressed almond milk instead! Above all, everyone on staff at Villa Kalimaya was always friendly and eager to please. We felt very welcome and hope to come back again soon.
We stayed at Kalimaya IV with 2 adults and 3 children for 10 nights and had a fantastic stay. It is beautifully furnished and feels completely luxurious. The location is awesome as it is close to shops and restaurants. Friends that stayed in other villas at the same time said they'd like to stay close to town next time as it made everything easier. The pool is beautiful. The outdoor bathroom in the bottom bedroom is lots of fun. The staff are really lovely and make everything easy. The chef prepares beautiful food if you want it and the villa is kept immaculate by the multitude of different staff that are shared with the other Kalimaya villas. We didn't have any problems with mosquitoes like friends in other villas did. The local restaurants are fantastic. The kids had an absolute blast, there are some amazing venues to keep them entertained. I recommend splash water park, Finn's beach club (both free entry as part of villa stay!), and also Waterborne and local restaurant Ginger Moon. I can't wait to go back. One tip: we paid for a pool fence but it wasn't adequate to keep our toddler out (he could open the gate or walk around the side!) so we had it removed but still had to pay for a few days, so be sure you consider the possible inadequacy of a temporary fence before paying for it. That was arranged elsewhere and no fault of the villa. Highly recommend this villa.
We stayed in the 3 bedroom Kalimaya IV of the Kalimaya villas. This was right next to the entrance of the new Seminyak shopping mall which provided direct access to the heart of Seminyak area. Location of this villa is king, with the beach being a short 10min walk away.
The Villa itself is getting a little old, but still a perfectly good place to stay and in good repair. Fysh, the villa manager is a delight and very friendly, happy to give advice as requested. She even managed to order in some really good local fare for lunch/dinner on request.
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
