So much better than a hotel room”
Pondok Sara Villas offered a fabulous place to stay in busy overcrowded Seminyak. The newly and beautifully renovated villas offer a great alternative to a hotel room . They have a comfortable, open living area that includes a small kitchen and looks onto a private plunge pool. A good breakffast can be ordered the night before from a small menu which is delivered to the room at your requested time the next morning. The rooms are well appointed with good quality linen, furnishings and toiletries. As the style of the villas is open this does lead to some significant noise transmission between villas which could be a problem if you had noisy neighbours. Luckily, this was not a problem for me. The staff are lovely but, at this stage, have limited English. The location is on quite a good shopping street and is not too far away from a busy section of the beach which has a number of beach view restaurants and bars. It is a quiet walk along the lane at night however there is a security guard for the nearby Haven Hotel at one end and a security guard for Pondok Sara Villas at the other. I purchased my rooms for a great rate from Agoda, so my stay was excellent value for money.
Loved it! Good location, quiet, and the room was clean.”
Loved our stay at here. We stayed for a week prior to going to a wedding in Uluwatu. The space and privacy were the main factors for me. I loved that breakfast was delivered to your villa and meant you could eat and enjoy your breakfast in private. The villa had everything you needed, even a plug which could accommodate any international plug format. The staff were very friendly. I would recommend The New Pondok Sara Villas to anyone traveling to Bali.
The height of relaxation but close to nightlife”
I arrived from a business trip for a few days relaxation in Bali, and Pondok Sara looked just the ticket.......and how right I was! I 'splashed out' on a one bed villa with pool, with the ultimate plan of spending time with a book and a glass of something by the pool for a few days and this place delivered in droves. The villa itself consists of a large open living area with a sofa, dining room table and chairs, TV and small kitchenette, an enclosed large bedroom and a semi open dressing area and bathroom all surrounded by a tall privacy wall and your own entrance from the main path. All this plus your own pool, with breakfast served in your villa by the really friendly staff, who clean daily and are so very helpful with taxis and tours. Location wise, 66 Club and 66 Beach is about 5-8 minutes walk away, with loads of shops and bars all within easy walking distance. Recommend a trip to Ubud for a day out for the arts and crafts. I was pretty lazy, although friends managed to surf, white water raft and ride horses during their stay, so plenty to do. I don't really want anyone else to find out about it to be honest in case it gets too busy!
It was our honeymoon and sixth place of stay out of seven and remained our favourite! We truly enjoyed our villa pool and bathtub. Location apt, quiet but convenient with shops, restaurants and beach all within walking distance. Even made the best honeymoon bed decoration! The extra effort made it special. If in Bali again, will definitely choose the New Pondok Sara Villa.
Staff let down by owner”
This is our 4th time to New Pondok Sara Villas. We have made friends with the staff, who have always been extremely helpful, obliging, friendly... well just wonderful! This time round though the owner had made a few changes - the only cable we had was now Indonesian showing Japanese kids shows, and indo speaking shows with Chinese sub titles - no use to Aussies. All the other channels ie. AXN, Diva, Fox Sport were all block - after a few talks we managed to have some unblocked but none of the sports channels which meant we took our money out onto the streets and spent in the local sports bars instead. Our Wi-Fi was very weak but that was rectified too. Breakfasts were always on time and pretty good. Location is close to the beach and shops which is one of the reasons why we return each year. However, I think next year we might look for somewhere different.
Very relaxing stay in a spacious new villa”
The staff at Pondok Sara were delightful, although some not so fluent with their English, we managed regardless.Jenny on the otherhand speaks great English and is gorgeous to deal with. The villa complex itself has just been completely renovated and is a well designed area where privacy has been well considered.Our one Br.villa was a great size .Plenty of relaxing space and eating area more than enough for two. The TV channels were mimimal but we were informed that the manager is looking into an upgrade of their Pay Tv contract shortly.So the DVD player was handy as another option. Loved the high ceilings in the bedroom and the space in the bathroom/dressing room is brilliant. We could hear Tv and general talking from next door but was never an issue especially when we closed our bedroom door.Unfortunately our pool was always in a shadow but we loved using the Large Communal pool anyway which was only a few steps out our door.The only negative with the inclusive breakfast would be that it's brought to your room at a chosen time by you the day before, which may be unsuitable after a late night out ? and the cooked food comes wrapped in glad wrap ~ great for hygiene but not so great for the toast or pancake texture !! A good menu selection regardless.
Good value villa in a good location. Very pleasant and friendly staff. The owners could maintain aspects of the villa a little better, but this is not to denigrate the wonderful staff. I would like to see Bali resort owners desist from excessive and environmentally damaging use of plastic sachets for coffe/creamer, butter and unneccesary issue of plastic straws when millions of each litter beaches. Also still too many vulnerable dogs on Bali. Each resort could adopt a vulnerable dog and it could easily live on the waste scraps from breakfasts. Overall, Pondok Sara is a good choice in most respects and after many long stays there, wouldn't hesitate to book again. Cut out unneccesary plastic sachets and house, neuter and feed the dogs and Bali can be paradise again.
Love this place”
The Staff, especially Jenny are amazing. Jenny could manage these Villas and knows exactly what is needed to make the customer's stay perfect- she is definitely an asset to Pondok Sara. Congratulations Jenny!! There are upgrades currently underway with new baths and showers being fitted, these are looking great. I'm not sure moving the television to the bedroom from the outdoor area is the best idea. My friend was sick during our stay and had a couple of days in bed which meant I had to be outside in the kitchen area without access to music and television. I understand that some people might prefer to have it in the bedroom but that is not for everyone, and not always practical. What about 2 televisions? Otherwise, this is an amazing place to stay on Double Six. Close to the beaches, shopping and night life without the noise of Kuta. Would recommend to couples, singles and families.
really enjoyed our stay at POndok Sara Villas.”
We really ejoyed our stay at Pondok Sara. the location was at the end of a lane off double six street in a quiet area a stones throw away from many restaurants and good shopping in seminyak. The villas were clean, tidy and spacious and we throughly enjoyed the private pool in our villas. teh staff didnt seem to speak very good english from what we gathered but this is to be expected going to anther country and is all a part of tghe experience. We would recommend these villas.
We booked the Pondok Sara Villa as a quite private location for a milestone wedding anniversary. We knew the location was only just in Seminyak but the villas are located just off Double six road , only a 10 minute stroll to the beach with all the choices of restaurants to the left and beach bars to the right. The are a few mini marts located within the immediate area and the bintang supermarket is only 10 minutes walk away We arrived in the early afternoon and were looking forward to a cool dip in our pool only to find it had been shock treated with chemicals, it was about 24 hours before it had cleared and could be used. We woke up on our first morning to find no water supply to flush toilets or shower, we told reception and they sent an "engineer" mid morning to fix it, only to have it fail again later that day to be finally be fixed. The next morning we found the problems were to be ongoing as we we had no hot water. Again a call to reception managed to get this repaired eventually. We were lucky enough to not have people in the adjoining villas most of the time, the music and loud voices were quite noticable when people were there. The breakfast each morning became a great joke for us, each day we would fill out the breakfast order the same way and what was delivered the next morning would vary greatly, sometimes double eggs, sometimes double bacon, in the end we would eagerly wait to see what other variations they could come up with. As mentioned in other reviews, we were disappointed with the stained sheets and towels, however they were changed daily. Throughout our stay it was the great staff that helped overcome all the minor issues, they did a special heart decoration on the bed with flowers on our anniversary day and my wife shared a great hug with them when we left. In summary, the villas could do with an update to the essential services (water, water heater linen and towels ) but if you get a good rate for your stay it is a great base for your bali exp
Fantastic,very friendly staff and just a short walk to restaurants ”
First time to Bali Staff were very helpful and friendly , our villa was perfect , cleaned every day and having a poolside bar was excellent . Can't fault new pondok Sara villas from a happy couple from Tasmania
First time in Bali and we picked New Pondok Sara Villas, beautiful place, friendly staff. Location can be quite secluded, but walking out to the street will take about 5 mins, and along the way, there are security guards from other hotel/ villas so its quite safe. Villa is fully equipped, WiFi was functioning as well (but couldn't really access IG). There weren't any insects flying around so that was really great. Downside was that neighbors were very inconsiderate as they blast the music literally from day till night (can be till 2 AM), and the towels provided had multiple stains on it. Highly recommend to stay in this villa!
We loved staying at Pondok Sara, the villas we're really nice and private, staff were excellent and friendly. Very good location, very quiet, only a little walk out to the main street. Some of the reviews say its a bit tired or dated, I think they're being too fussy. It could probably do with a paint job I suppose, but it honestly had no impact on our stay or us enjoying the villa.
Great Stay at Pondok Sara Villa”
We enjoyed staying at New Pondok Sara Villa! The 1 bedroom villa was very cozy and we had no issues during our stay. From all these years of traveling, it was our first in staying in a villa. Quite different from staying in the standard busy resort /hotel.However our stay was enjoyable and peaceful ! Staff at the villa were amazing from the security guy to room service people.Special mention to Jenny the receptionist who made our stay even better, she was amazing! The only suggestion at this point would be related to the villa maintenance and probably have a fan in the main living area, it can get quite warm in there. Otherwise good value for money !
our stay at the pondok sara was superb, the villa was spotless and clean, very spacious, comfy large bed and very private, the breakfast was brought to our villa at whichever time we requested it.the communal pool was very quiet and very clean and at times felt like it was your own villa!! location was down a quiet cul de sac in a quiet area and 7 mins walk to double six beach. would definatley stay here again.
Overall Good Experience”
Our stay at the New Pondok Sara Villas was overall good, close walking distance to the beach and cafes/restaurants. Amenities at the villas were good, with a refreshing private pool to dip in and the staff were very friendly. Unfortunately we did get to hear the noisy rooster at all hours of the night, we had to request for our room to be cleaned on 1x occasion and for breakfast we didn't receive some of our requests. I would still recommend staying at the villas as the overall experience was good!
Pondok Sara Villas was impressive in terms of service. Service was prompt. On two occasions we had power failure and water stoppage. The staff attended to the matter as soon as possible. We also enjoyed the wholesome and hearty breakfast which was served in our villa. Great service!!!
Lovely place and worth for money”
