"The perfect villa for two"
In the heart of Seminyak lies the beautiful Aleva Villas. Aleva is a small array of one bedroom villas just 1.5km from Seminyak Square Shopping Mall. Upon arrival we were greeted from Alevas incredible staff along with gorgeous miniature rabbits which run around the villas pathways and for those animal lovers yes you are aloud to bring these little cuties into your villa. Each villa features your own private pool, hammock, TV unit including multiple DVDs available at the front desk and are accessible anytime. Theres a large spa bath overlooking the villas pool, have a dip and go straight into the bath. The staff were extremely friendly always offering a helping hand or booking taxis when we needed they also have a free shuttle service to the surrounding area which comes in handy for sight seeing and shopping. The in villa kitchen was equipped with your very own dishwasher and oven. Other amenities included a microwave, coffee machine and kettle.
The daily floating breakfast was definitely a highlight with the menu providing a variety of choices for any appetite. You are in Seminyak however to get to the popular areas you will need to get a local taxi or a bike. Due to the villas being located off a main road there is a little bit of noise of the vehicles passing by.
Overall we had an amazing experience at Aleva, we couldn't thank the staff more for their friendly service. We highly recommend Aleva Villas for a wonderful Bali experience. If you have any questions about our experience please feel free to email.

Arriving in the Villa we were amazed, a large private swimming pool over looked South Ubud’s wonderful scenery with luscious green plants everywhere not to mention a gorgeous mountain in the distance you were definitely in link with the real wonders Bali has to offer. In the villa was a large bed which was incredibly spacious and behind to specially crafted wooden doors held one of the biggest bathrooms we have had on our trip, connecting was a spacious shower and incredibly big sized bath right in the middle. Any honeymooners out there, couples or just friends wanting to get away this is the absolute perfect location not to mention right next door is the Bali Zoo.
Waking up early eager to start the days plans we were taken by a buggy to the Bali Zoo which was connected in our package were we got to have breakfast with orangutangs, elephants and tropical birds. Here each VIP guest got to interact with these beautiful creatures and get up close and personal and get your photos or selfies. Feed the elephants, have birds climbing over you or hold hands with an Orangutang this was definitely one of the highlights of the stay at Sanctoo Villas. The breakfast had a super large buffet which a variety of food from waffles, omelettes to rice it was all there for you to enjoy. After enjoying one of the most incredible experiences at breakfast we got to explore the Bali Zoo, there was so much to see and do and it was such a fantastic day.
Once we had finished at the zoo we got escorted to Sanctoos Spa, another highlight to our amazement we were overlooking the incredible rainforest of South Ubud with an incredible large waterfall in sight. We got to relax for a tradition 60 minute balinese massage were we were calmed with the sound of rain and the waterfall. The staff were super kind and we had such a lovely experience it is definitely something you can’t pass up. They also have ‘happy hour’ were for a 30 minute massage it is only 100,000 Indonesian rupiah ($10 AUD) an offer you can’t say no to.
After the massage we were taken to experience a night at the zoo. Were to my surprise the gorgeous orangutang’s were siting on the chair and we were able to spend time with them and get really close and personal compared to breakfast. Sit, play, hold and pat these amazing animals it was seriously an experience you cant write in words and the highlight of my whole trip. See the zoo at night with a private tour without loads of people passing you, see the animals up close and feed the incredibly beautiful elephants. After we were delighted with a 4 course meal which was absolutely delicious, we also had specials guests of a baby crocodile, porcupine and a monkey climbing over our backs. After our special guests we enjoyed desert and a fire dance telling a lovely story which was beautiful to watch.
Overall our experience at the Sanctoo Villas was definitely something we can highly recommend. The experiences are like no other and we couldn't thank them enough for having us as special guests.

Overall rating: 4.5/5
After being rated the number one hotel to stay at in Bali in one of Australia’s most popular magazines, we were extremely excited to be staying at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua. Indulging in a lavish 5-star beachfront resort with beautifully landscaped gardens and pools, whilst experiencing the unique Balinese culture, this luxury and exotic hotel did not disappoint.
Luxury, class, style there was nothing this hotel didn't have. Arriving at Sofitel with our jaws dropped to the ground we could not believe we were going to stay in such an amazing resort for the next two days. Beaming with smiles from all staff, we were taken to check in within Club Millesime, where we were offered welcoming drinks and a cold towel to cool off. Having a Club Millesime package was something we would highly recommend, as it was absolutely amazing. It consisted of us being able to have access to an afternoon tea every day from 3pm, consisting of spring rolls, quesadillas, sandwiches, scones and different desserts, such as fruit and custard tarts. From 5.30pm was cocktail hour, where you are served cocktails, as well as helping yourself to a variety of different cakes, biscuits, fruits and nuts. This package also included access to the resorts Infinity pool, which was immaculate and surrounded by luscious greenery.
We had the most lovely and relaxing stay in a gorgeous ‘Luxury Room’ which could not be faulted, with a massive king sized bed, large bathroom and a swimming pool just outside our room which connected around to the main pool were you could swim and go for evening cocktails.
The hotel has the most relaxing pool complex that we have ever experienced and it is evident how much effort is put into having their garden, pool and other facilities maintained to such a high standard. We unwinded with a soothing treatment at So Spa, having a one hour massage that was extremely relaxing and above our expectations. We also experienced the So Fit fitness centre, that had every piece of gym equipment needed to partake in a physical workout.
As for food, we experienced the buffet breakfast, which would have to be the best buffet we have ever had. With a juice bar and separate rooms for bread, eggs, meat, Indian, noodles and catering for different cuisines, such as Indian, we always left feeling full and extremely satisfied with food and the service from all the staff.
We also got to experience lunch at Nikki Beach, boasting stunning panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, whilst offering a large menu choice of international favourites such as wood oven pizzas and creative salads, which was extremely delicious and enjoyable whilst lounging on a luxurious all-white day-bed by the pool. It is impossible to fault such an incredible hotel when you have staff that are absolutely amazing in every area. From the waiters at breakfast, to the cleaning and room service staff, every employee that we met always greeted us with a warm smile and thoughtful gesture. They always went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect and that every guest is more than satisfied with their stay.
Ideal for business, leisure, or family fun, Sofitel Bali Nusa Beach Resort welcomes patrons to discover its luxury beachfront offerings for their memorable Bali holiday. Only 30 minutes from the airport and main attractions within easy driving range, this 5 star resort was absolutely incredible and we will definitely be back to stay again.
Soobali is the most incredible villa for 2, in the best location, 3 minutes walking from Seminyak Square and in close reach to all of Bali's famous shops, cafes and restaurants. The uniquely designed villa is like no other with an incredible blue, baby pink and white theme not to mention the large luxurious pool right on your front door step, surrounded by lush and tropical greenery.
Right inside is a generous sized kitchen and fridge, were you have a choice of cooking your own meals or helping yourself to some fresh coffee in the mornings. The villa is super spacious with an extremely comfortable large bed, a wireless loud speaker to use at your pleasure and some fantastic wall hanging quotes on each corner you turn.
Our favourite being "vodka because no good story started with a salad." They also included a large pink flamingo flotation toy, which added some fun by the pool and picture perfect photos. Whether you want to spend a day by the pool, relax in the hammock or go shopping, this villa has access to everything. There was even a desk for those who need to get some work or emails done. The garden is extremely well maintained and fresh, adding to the high market, tropical villa vibe. T
he outside bathroom was also extremely cute and secluded, making it the dream villa to live in. It is the perfect villa for a couple or a small group of friends. We would highly recommend you come stay and experience it for yourself, as you will not be disappointed.
Sun Island Boutique Villas & Spa was amazing. Located on one of the main streets in Seminyak,it is very well positioned, as you are 5 minutes walking distance from hundreds of shops, markets and restaurants. The staff set a standard of high quality service as soon as we had arrived, with every employee always making an effort of going out of their way to say hello and satisfy our needs. The facilities are also well kept and maintained, including the crystal clear pool surrounded by luscious greenery and very comfortable pool lounges to laze around on and read a book through the heat of the day.
Breakfast was a huge highlight, with a simple yet filling menu consisting of your choice of eggs, bacon, fruit salad, yogurt, omlette and many other different foods to satisfy your desire. You could also help yourself to the buffet breakfast, such as choosing from a few different pastries, toast and juices. With breakfast served overlooking the beautiful pool and exceptionally well-kept garden, it was impossible to not enjoy the calm and relaxing environment and surroundings.
The staff once again were also lovely when serving and you did not have to wait long for your food to come out. The villas themselves were incredible and made you feel as though you were stepping into complete luxury and paradise. Each villa is quite large and has its own private pool, kitchen facilities and outdoor table setting, which was a perfect spot to sit for afternoon tea every day. The bedrooms were huge, with a double bed and T.V, in the middle of the room and then a bathroom behind with a toilet, bathtub and a separate shower.
Altogether we had an amazing and fun experience whilst staying at Sun Island Villas & Spa and would highly recommend staying for a few nights when visiting Bali as you will not be disappointed. With friendly staff, quality room service, fantastic facilities and walking distance to many shops and restaurants, we have no doubt you will thoroughly enjoy your stay.
Kellys Warung is the cutest surfers paradise location with a organic cafe looking over the beach front and a small amount of rooms behind. This place is super affordable from only $18AUD Per Night it is definitely an offer not to throw away.
For those who just want to relax and get away it is the perfect spot, with no wifi connection and open roof rooms this place is somewhere to clear your mind and focus on the gorgeous location you are in.
The organic cafe offers everything from smoothie bowls to a nice salad it is the perfect place to detox your mind and body and get off the technology we are on everyday. The views from this place are just amazing over looking Bingin beach, the sunrises are definitely not ones to miss.
Lie down and relax in your room while you listen to the waves of the oceans and the chirping of the birds. It is super calming, although if you are staying at Kellys Warung don’t bring much stuff or bring a bag that can be bought down stairs as there is a fairly long stair walk down, also ensure your equipped with towels etc. The bathrooms are shared with other guest and there is a fan for when it gets a bit to hot. Kellys Warung is perfect for keen surfers or those who like to explore and not spend all their time in hotel rooms.
We were lucky enough to experience 1 night at the hotel everyone was talking about, the lovely Sal Secret Spot.
The small hotel is one of a kind, with a spectacular design Sal Secret Spot consists of a small amount rooms which a choice of standard, superior and suites. Our small standard bungalows had a double bed, TV, mini fridge and bathroom. The design of this place is just stunning with a white theme and a spacious pool area, were the pool flows off into a waterfall with one of a kind round beanbag like large stepping stones in the bottom half to also enjoy. Luscious greenery surrounds the pool making the place picturesque, it was impossible to get a bad photo here as the place just speaks for itself. Sal secret Spot also has a lovely little cafe fit with some of the kindest staff you will meet.
Amongst the stepping stones there was a bed for guests to enjoy for those who wanted to relax or read it was a little hideaway in the centre of the hotel and was a very peaceful spot to sit/lie down.
The little hotel is perfect for couples or small families with older adolescents. Not to mention a quick 1km walk to Bali’s famous Bingin beach we highly recommend you give this place a visit, I promise you, you will want to return just like us. As they say “This eco friendly resort is ideal for people who want to meet with nature without excluding the first-class comfort”.
