Fab location, check in and out easy, private and relaxing villa. Liza is a lovely house lady, thank you!!
Beautiful Villa. 10mins walk to restaurant and shop. If the property can keep the swimming pool clean it will be great. Don't like the bathroom design, the sink is too small, easy to splash the water onto the wooden floor.
We highly recommend Laksmana Hideaway! This villa is out of this world beautiful. Set about 2 minutes walk to the Main Street of Seminyak, hidden away enough to be a quiet oasis in the middle of the busy surrounds! The entire villa like a floating island. Our children enjoyed hours of swimming time jumping off the bridge and playing games. Check in was professional and swift with welcome drinks and cool refresher towels and a complimentary basket of tropical fruit! But the real highlight of this villa was our house attendant Liza. She was an absolute gem. She sourced for us the freshest of ingredients to cook a HUGE gourmet breakfast for us each morning and swiftly would clean our rooms and even did our washing for us. She would greet the kids each morning with hugs and kisses and we enjoyed chatting with her while she cooked our AMAZING breakfasts! Thanks Villa Laksmana Hideaway for a great stay in the heart of Seminyak. Special thanks to beautiful Liza. We miss you already!
I have been coming to Bali for 10 years and this is by far the best place I have stayed. It looks exactly like the photos, the location is fantastic 5 minute walk to the Main Street of Seminyak. As there is no reception or staff (besides security and housekeeping) they provide you with a phone so you can ask for anything you need like groceries, drinks, booking tours or just questions in general. We were 2 young couples (26-30) and will definitely stay again!!
staff excellent will recommend to anybody”
This is a lovely and spacious Villa located right in the heart of Seminyak. All the restaurants and bars were just a stone throw away. The pool is also large compared to other pool villas in the area - it feels like you're waking up on water. The staff, especially Ms Agung, made sure that we felt right at home and set us up for our first trip to Bali. I asked about buying a local simcard and instead of sending us on our way to barter with the local phone shops, she had a simcard topped up with data and credit within 24 hours! Nothing was too much of an ask. The team here offer a very personalised service. Our only complaint is the road to the Villa is dark and there is a large hole right outside the compound which is dangerous. It is poorly sign posted so taxi drivers often have difficulty finding the villa. Food was also OK. This place is for people who would like a place with a homely feel. If you have young children please be aware that there is a lot of water to keep your eyes on the little ones! All in all, lovely villa with fabulous staff which makes you feel like you're in a quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. Would have gotten a 10/10 if it weren't for the roads and signage.
AMAZING! STAY HERE!!!! ”
Our stay was absolutely perfect. The staff were amazing and our experience of Bali would not have been the same without them. They researched many things and always there to help. Gusti (Mr G) picked us up from the airport and we knew this was going to be a great holiday. he speaks very good english and shared many stories with us, a very knowledgable man. Agung is lovely also, she is available on what's app all the time to assist and she is always smiling. We were sad to leave but We will be coming back here. No doubt!
Hotel is rundown, no water, dangerous home”
Our supposedly wonderful stay turned out to be a nightmare as the hotel condition was ridiculously bad for the price we paid at peak season. There were a lot of mosquitoes, centipedes and even the poisonous huge centipede in the pool. We are lucky that we were not bitten, else we would have been hospitalized. The main issue is there is no water every morning when we wake up, or when we return during evening and we have to call the staff to send someone to fix EVERY DAY. On the 5th day, after numerous complaints, the property management decided to change the pump and that's only on the day we were leaving. This should have been rectified earlier and should not have the case to have a technician in our holiday villa everyday - I would call this nonsense and disturbance, unnecessary burden to our holiday. We felt awfully cheated and this has totally ruined our holiday. Only one thing that we appreciate is the presence of the helper. A female staff is helpful, she cleans the house and prepare nice breakfast for us and the owner should be glad they have such a wonderful cleaner/helper. Other than that, we are being cheated for paying such a price for such a run down hut.
Relaxing in peace and quiet in the heart of Seminy”
We loved Villa Laksmana Hideaway 1. It was very quiet and relaxing yet a short walk from Coco Supermarket in Seminyak. We were in Bali for our wedding and the preparations photos taken in the villa are beautiful. We would love to give a special shout out to Lisa who looked after us.
Its was a very relaxing place for vacation… ”
Like the ambient of the villa… very relaxing for holiday
Very nice, warm, clean”
Very nice villa, very suitable for family with 2 couples. the pool and room design is fantastic. the location is also not bad near central city. the only problem is hard to find the villa if dun go there b4, better put a landmark at main road to show the direction.
Excellent villa in an excellent location”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Laksmana. We travelled with young children and the villa is probably not suited for toddlers as the pool runs directly through the living room. But our daughter was 3 at the time and our baby wasn't crawling so it was fine. The housekeeper, Lisa was fantastic and would come each morning to make our breakfast in the villa. Breakfast is continental but juices were fresh and yummy! The villa was very clean and gorgeously deigned. The villa is just a short stroll to Jalan Oberoi where you will find some of the best restaurants and bars! We loved our stay here! Highly recommend!!!!
