“Excellent value for money with wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

After doing much research, I finally booked the room for 3 nights for my girlfriends birthday and I must say the place was extremely memorable and the staff was excellent.

Location
- Located behind the very busy Bintang supermarket, the only problem with this location was that it took us maybe 5 mins to walk in a narrow and dark road to the Villa, not much of a problem really for the excellent location. Shopping for groceries was so convenient! with the resturaunts and shopping of Seminyak so conveniently located, the 5 min walk was negligible.

Room
- The villas all come with a nice living area (which I'll admit that I didn't bother enjoying since the bedroom was so comfortable) and a kitchen area complete with pots/pans for you to cook your own meal if you wanted (and you can even buy groceries from around the corner)

Toilet
- The staff was nice enough to let me look around at all the 4 villas when I was leaving as the rooms were vacant, one thing I noticed was that the toilets are slightly different from each. My room came with a totally open air toilet which was quite inconvenient when it rained at night. Also the water heater didn't have enough hot water to last my gf's long showers but it was a pretty interesting experience bathing in the open.

Cleanliness
- Excellent. Nothing that I could fault on

Pool
- Not very big but decently deep. I was slightly disappointed that the pool was under maintenance hence it was abit murky from all the sunblock in the water but after the maintenance it was really nice and comfortable. You're not going to get much of a swimming workout in the pool but its a nice area to chill and relax by the pool.

Staff
- Best staff i've ever came across. They were all very nice, especially Rudi who helped me buy a birthday cake for my gf and left it in the room so that I could surprise her with it. I must say i've never encountered such excellent and personal service ever.

Overall
- Totally recommended. Although we were abit uncomfortable with the lack of hot water and bathing in the rain on the first night (I actually commented on this and I also noted that not all the rooms have open air baths that you'll get caught in the rain so its really down to your luck. I think they might consider covering the shower area so you wont get caught out in the rain. Besides, it hardly rains in Bali and I was there at a bad month.) but overall we had such an excellent time that my gf who absolutely refuses to visit the same area twice actually wants to go back to stay in Bonsai Villas so that she can experience it all over again.

p.s We actually took a video of the entire swimming pool area into the Villa but I'll wait for my gf to eventually post on the Villa and upload the video to Youtube.

Room Tip: If you'd like bathing in the open, pick a non-rainy month and ask for Room 1, otherwise, 3 or 4...

My experience of travel and also living in Sydney is that people have lost the art of comunicating with one's fellow man or woman,I spent the entire 10 days in Bali haveung ine conversation with a lovely aussie/english couplebeside me at the german restaurant near the Kusnadi hotel. The rest of the talk was with the Bonsai villas owners Merv and Rudi and their staff. espaecially Benny,Being a single woman they made me feel at home , safe and advised me on all aspects of Bali now, oh how it made the trip.

Room Tip: There are 4 viallas equally spacious and all mod cons. and quiet!

I stayed in bonsai villas for three nights in January! Have to say that this place is fantastic! My boyfriend and i didn't want to leave but had already planned the second part of our trip! The villas are a great size! Large living area which includes kitchen! The kitchen is a great option and having bingtang supermarket only a 5 min walk away is a huge bonus! We made our breakfast every morning at the villa.Bedroom again was spacious, with a large ensuite bathroom! The pool is great and we swam in it everyday! The bintang sold in the mini bar is the same price as sold in bintang supermarket. Which I was very impressed with!

The staff are friendly, polite and always wanting to help! Rudi (the manager) is particularly helpful. He has a fantastic knowledge of local restaurants and directions of getting to locations ( which is very helpful when you are in a new country).

There are only four villas and with the location of the villas being tucked behind the main road made it very quiet.

I can't speak highly enough of the place! Great value for money! I have already recommended bonsai villas to my family and friends!

we are so happy you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the quiet relaxed atmosphere bonsai offers.the closeness of a supermarket,shops and restaurants etc. all add to a hassle free holiday.as a traveler myself i know a cheap mini bar saves lugging heavy shopping bags on a hot day.
We appreciate your comments very much .Roll on your next visit..

Kind regards

Rudi and staff.

We stayed at bonsai villas from the 27th of december until the 2nd of January, the rooms were very spacious and clean. We loved having an open kitchen with comfy lounges to relax also. The pool was a nice depth to swim in for kids and adults and is regularly cleaned and maintained. Overall the staff are very welcoming and friendly, and attend to everyone of your needs. Rudi the owner is very helpful and friendly and informed us of very nice places nearby to eat. We would recommend these villas to couples and families as it is conveniently located next to shops, restaurants, pharmacy and bintang supermarket and at the same time, the quite oasis of your villa to relax after a busy day. We would defiantly stay here again!
