Our family had a great stay at Villa Palm and highly recommend it to all as its in a great location and value for money a big thanks to Iluh Agung and the team and see you again next September!
I just had to write a review, we were so happy with this villa. Not only was it well within our budget but it was just perfect for our family. Plenty of space, so clean and spacious and the villa was closed off from the pool which was great as we had small children. The staff just made our stay, they were so friendly and twice they prepared a traditional Balinese dinner for us, this was the highlight of the food in Bali. They will be missed. The location was amazing, right in the middle of Seminyak and so close to the main shops and restaurants. We can't wait to come back, and we would highly recommend this Villa.
Myself ,my daughter and granddaughter had a 5 day girl's holiday staying here at the Villa Palm. It was just like the photos, huge bedrooms,lovely pool and gardens.Even though we are all adults the glassed in living area was such a bonus to keep out mozzies etc.The booking direct to Lizzie went so smooth. Agung met us and also took us back to the airport .He is so at ease with visitors and can answer any questions. Although we didn't have time to book his wife to make us a meal, this is an option that sounds very good. Every day the villa was cleaned and made like new again mostly while we were out. It is in a handy area for mini markets, eateries and massage outlets but a little further to walk to Eat St. Seminyak. Taxi's are only $3 though. Will definately be booking this villa again on our next visit and recommending it to others. Thank you to all involved.
Recently stayed for 12 nights at the Villa Palms off Drupadi st Seminyak. Spacious rooms, quiet peaceful grounds, and fabulous pool. The seasoned Balinese staff are the best! They came by daily to clean and tidy the villa including straighten the beds, sweep the fallen fragipani leaves and check the pool. Always friendly and ready to answer any questions we had, they were like family or favorite friends dropping over each day.
Thank you for a fantastic stay in Bali. See you again soon!
The rental was our little Oasis. We are a family with 3 children aged 13, 11 and 8.
The place was spacious, location was awesome, staff amazing.
Contact with owner and manager was always answered in a prompt, efficient and helpful way.
We chose the rental as we were after just some quality time as a family and did not want the resort environment, we were not disappointed.
Would not even look elsewhere next time we return to Bali.
We just stayed for 1 week at Villa Palm - 3 girlfriends, each delighted to have their own bedroom and bathroom!
The gardens are gorgeous and well established, the pool is large and clean - without smelling like chemicals at all, the villa clean and with everything you need to feel comfortable and settle easily into your Bali holiday.
The villa is very centrally located and you feel quite independent being that it is not within a large villa complex. You can easily walk to the shops, markets and nearby restaurants and massage. It is very easy to grab a taxi at the end of the gang to go to restaurants slightly further away for dinners. The staff are like ninjas - everyday we would head out for breakfast, lunch or shopping and come back to a perfectly clean villa. We all found the beds very comfortable and I was really impressed with linens and towels - especially at this price point!
While I really enjoyed staying here with my girlfriends I really want to point out that this is an absolutely perfect location for families with small children. For instance Mums and Dads could tag team if they wanted to go out and have a massage or shop - without tearing the kids away from the pool or garden. It is enclosed living so that avoids the mossie problems at night and the staff are happy to babysit or organise help so that parents can have dinners out together. The other benefits of the enclosed glassed living area is that it makes pool access secure and gives parents the ability to put children in separate bedrooms that open into a secure living area - previously we have always moved our daughters bed into our room (not necessary at Villa Palm!) I will be recommending to all my friends wanting to find a family friendly villa and am already cajoling my husband into another Bali holiday this year!!
Villa Palm was fabulous, so centrally located, safe, clean and excellent value for money a real home away from home, relaxing quiet villa stay. We wouldnt hesitate booking Villa Palm again for our next Bali holiday
The minute we walked into our Villa, we felt relaxed! We were in the pool before we even unpacked our bags. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, which was a luxury for me, when staying with teenagers. Elizabeth, Agung and all the staff were so welcoming with a source of information whenever we needed help or advice. They would organise anything we asked, to organising a scooter for rent, tickets, and also cooking us meals. To come back from being out and to find our villa had been cleaned to the finest detail was also an absolute delight. The Villa was very quiet, with no street noise. It was only a 5 minute walk to the main street in Seminyak, which we enjoyed the walk, taking in all the sights and sounds of Bali. Or a $3.00 taxi ride to the Beach or Seminyak Square. The villa was very spacious, with a huge pool, fantastic for a family that likes to spread out.
From the moment I made the inquiry with Lizzie I knew this was going to be a hassle free stay. Lizzie was easy to deal with and returned my emails very quickly. When we arrived at the villa , Agung, who we found to be very professional and welcoming, greeted us. He was able to provide us with some local information and contact details for our stay and arrange whatever we needed.
The villa itself is Balinese style and a little older as it is represented in the photos online. It was absolutely spotless and the staff who came every day including Agung and his wife Illuh, ensured it was kept that way throughout our stay. We had three adults, two kids and a baby and there was plenty of room for all of us. Lizzie also provided a cot with mosquito net. The kids loved the pool and and it was extremely clean. The beds were comfortable, all with mosquito nets and all bedrooms with air con and the layout of the villa was great as we could see the kids in the pool from the lounge area and we were able to lock up the glass doors at night.
The location was great and very central. It was a little too long a walk in the heat with the kids and the baby to the beach; probably take about 15 mins without them, however a cab down to the beach was about $2AUD or 20,000rph. Everything was really close including some really good local restaurants, day spas and shops (less than 5 mins walk from the villa).
Agung assisted us with getting some laundry done and organizing a day trip with a driver, Nyomen for the day. Nothing was too much trouble for this man and he was an absolute delight.
Iluh, Agungs wife and Putu cooked for us on our last night and it was delicious. Highly recommend this for a night in. Iluh even looked after the baby for me whilst we were eating so that we could enjoy our meal. Such amazing people and they really made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable.
Just returned from 10 nights in this lovely villa. Location is great- a 10 minute walk to the beach or 'eat street' and the villa itself has everything you need. Fantastic pool, beds are comfy and staff are excellent. Special mention to Agung who was always very accomodating for any of our requirements (book an in villa massage they were awesome) and his wife Eluh who cooked a fabulous meal for us in the villa (a must if you stay there). Of course it's not perfect, upstairs bathroom is pretty small, downstairs air conditioning is not great (could use a ceiling fan) and TV is fairly small but these are only minor issues and we loved our stay there. Would definitely stay again, thanks Lizzie for making booking so easy.
We have just returned from 10 nights in Bali staying at Villa Palm. From our pick up from the airport by Nyomen to our drop off back to the airport by Nyomen our stay was fantastic.
Aguyng was always happy to help when we needed it. His English is very good so communication by text was great. His wife Iluh cooked us a beautiful meal one evening which we thoroughly enjoyed - highly recommend if you stay at Villa Palm or one of the other 2 Villa's run by Lizzie that you do this. It made for a very relaxing evening.
The Villa was serviced everyday and we never felt uncomfortable if we were there while this was being done - all the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you.
The Villa itself is good, it isn't the flashest place and the price reflects this but for us it was great. The pool is great, lovely and warm :) Our only suggestions would be cushions on the loungers plus an additional lounger be brought, the King Size bed is extremely hard but if you like hard beds "no problem" and the air-conditioning unit in the open plan area could be bigger as wasn't that effective.
Handy to Seminyak central for beautiful restaurants (Ultimo, The Corner Store, Bali Cafe, Laca Laca) and all at reasonable prices - about the third of the price for a family of 4 to eat out compared to NZ.
The Beach is a 20 minute walk with children in the heat but was worth it for us with my husband and eldest daughter keen to try surfing. They both had lessons and we went back to the same guy each time.
All in all a brilliant holiday and we will be back.
Thanks to Lizzie who made booking the Villa very easy and was fantastic with her communication and any queries. Thanks to all the staff for being their beautiful selves. The Balinese really are special people :)
We just came home from our holiday to Bali. I thoroughly recommend this villa. Beautiful rooms and garden. We have three young children and really liked the way we were able to completely lock the villa up at night. The front of the villa is all glass so you can have it all open through the day and lock up at night. We felt very secure. The staff here were absolutely lovely and they came daily to do housekeeping. Very central to Seminyak square, just a short walk. Very nice local bakery and take away food outlets near by. We will definitely return!!!
