Everything you see on photo is true but actual are much aged. Design are great but everything feels like a 50yrs old grandma. From sofa to kitchen to bathrooms with stained toilet bowls and rusty taps, everything else are ok. In fact the best part of this villa is its private pool but the pool is not kids friendly as it is about 1.3m deep and good for adults mainly. If your young kid swims have to prepare floats. I took a 2 bedroom villa and the layout is great, pity that everything feels so worn and old and stained. If not this villa I would highly recommend. Rating, Location 8/10 Villa design 9/10 Condition of villa 5/10 Service 9/10 There are no mini bar, no resturant on site as only room service provides. Have room service spa but I have not tried. Not a modern traveller villa as not enough power points for now modern traveller's that have to charge multiple devices. My tour agency booked this for me and at less than usd 300/ night for a 2 bedroom villa it's ok. Overall, if you are a budget traveller that needs 2 bedrooms and can live with old furniture and equipments in a resort,this villa is good. If you are a modern traveller that except clean rooms and have high standards for resorts, better consider abit more. I would still recommend this resort if you like rusty and more authentic villa holiday experience for a low price.

We booked this villa due to its great location, which is near several shopping centers and beaches we wanted to check out. The villa did not disappoint, it has several amenities, including a microwave, a water cooler a coffee machine, a toaster a stove, and a big refrigerator. It also has cutlery’s that get cleaned by the house cleaning crew everyday. staff were very helpful and cooperative. The only thing I think that could be improved is the cleanliness of the pillows. I also wish that they put a railing to the sides of the pool so people don't fall down when walking without paying attention. In essence: it's a wonderful place to stay, with multiple great places to check out nearby, and good services.

Very bad experience. We are in honeymoon and the bed sheets were dirty and air conditioning is not working good for the room and electricity cut 2 or 3 times at night so the problem they don’t take seriously so we got same problems every day. I don’t recommend for couples or honeymooners

A dear friend of mine is sadly dying with a terminal illness. The end will come soon but in an amazing act of strength he wanted to return to his beloved Bali for one final holiday. I agreed to join him and to relive old memories we decided to stay at Kanishka Villas in Seminyak. My friend made the initial booking via Agoda however for reasons he can not explain, that booking was duplicated from one to two villas for identical dates. When he realised the error (some 72 hours later and more than a month before the scheduled stay he contacted Agoda to advise of the issue and seek a refund of the duplicated booking value. Agoda said they were unable to assist since Kanishka had the funds. Now we are here and Kanishka are saying they are unable to assist. There is no reasonable excuse that between them these two organizations can not find away to correct this situation. Ample notice was provided to Agoda and Kanishka is not booked out, although had the relationship between booking agent and facility been closer this also would not be a reasonable excuse. He has been trying to contact the Sales and Marketing Department of Kanishka who are apparently empowered to resolve this matter however the phone number provided by staff at the Villas does not answer ..... This review will be updated as the matter comes to a conclusion as will my report on the Kanishka Villas

This was my second time visit, the first one is pre pandemic I would rated 5/5. But sorry for this time I rated 1/5. When we arrived, we booked room with private jacuzzi, the room was not clean enough, the carpet is old. I didnt expect this when we arrived. The jacuzzi then has trouble, so we request for changing the room; which I spent the night on my first time. The room was so dusty, the jacuzzi is dirty, and also has trouble, there was dead milipede in bathroom shower and the room is so hot: 30 deg c (I have a room temperature) I was afraid my son couldnt sleep with such hot room. And at night we were sleeping around 9-10am, And I was wide awake around 1am, I could hear a strange sound outside room, like there were someone outside, the sound was like knocking on the door and sound of tree leaves, but somehow it was so noisy I couldnt sleep until pass 2am and I was crying because I was afraid. Then my husband woke up too and said he could hear someone knocking. It seems the pandemic take a toll on this villa, I have feeling the villa was empty for quite sometime. Then we check out the next day even we booked for 2 nights.

The first time I booked this villa in February was one of the best stay I've ever experienced. Breakfast was full of variety, villa was clean and spacious, price is affordable (I stayed in Villa 13). Because of this, I decided to return in August (I booked the 2BR villa on the 16th of August 2020 until 20th of August 2020 and stayed in Villa no 1). To my surprise, the quality of this villa became SO BAD that I feel compelled to write this review. Please, I beg the management of Kanishka Villa to take note of this review and return the state of the villa to its former glory. Big Issues: 1. CLEANLINESS IS NON-EXISTENT. On my second day in the villa, there are LOTS OF COCKROACHES coming out from ALL OVER THE PLACE. I called the housekeeper to spray the whole villa, but there are still cockroaches, both alive and dead all over the villa. I have a huge phobia of roaches and this experience haunts me until this very day. I cannot enjoy the villa after this event and I am scared of going to the bathroom throughout my stay (luckily I did not see any roaches after the second day). The explanation from the housekeeper is that on that day, the villa is undergoing a mass routine spraying. So insecticides in the form of smoke is sprayed all over the villa. That's why the roaches started coming out of their hiding places and lots of dying roaches. However, THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. They should've done this when there are no guests staying at the villa and they should've anticipated this by closing the villa. 2. UNPROFESSIONAL SERVICE. I called the receptionist numerous times but most of the time, there were nobody to answer the phone. When I walked out of the villa to the reception desk, I saw that there was no one around. The explanation from the staff is that there are only one staff that day and the villa is severely understaffed that the lone receptionist has multiple jobs so most of the time, he is not behind the desk. This is very annoying. There was one time when I called at 10-11 pm for 30 minutes (with interval of 5 mins) but there was no one to answer the phone. In the afternoon I also called several times around 12 noon but no answer either. They should have arranged for a dedicated receptionist seeing that they advertised "24 hours concierge service" on their website. The reality is far from it. 3. BROKEN FACILITIES. On my first night, the AC in the up stair room is broken. I called the technician and it turns out that the freon is depleted. These kinds of things should have been checked before the guests arrived since the maintenance took 30-45 minutes done in the night and it is very disturbing for the guests (and breach of privacy). After he was done, the AC is not very cold either (but enough for us to sleep). I asked the technician why the up stair room AC is not as cold as the down stair room and he said that it's because the AC down stair is DAIKIN but the up stair one is not. This is ridiculous. They should have the same standard for each room. How could each room in the villa has different standard for AC. I remember back in Feb I did not have this issue (the AC in villa 13 is cold). 4. Same as number 3. Broken facility but this time in the bathroom. The Bathtub in the up stair room is broken due to several things. First, the hot water cannot come out. After technicians are called, they said to wait a moment. They tried repairing it for 1 hour and coming and going multiple times but it was not repaired. The hot water eventually came out, but only for 1 min and then the water is cold again (not even remotely enough to fill the bathtub). The hot water storage capacity is not enough to fill one bathtub. Eventually, I decided to take a bath in the cold water, but after several minutes laying there, I realized the bathtub is leaking. With the position of the tab closed, the water slowly drained out so in around 5-10 minutes, it was already almost empty. Totally cannot be used to take a bath. Also, I noticed there was some filth coming out from who-knows where. Please look at the pic I attached, there was some black thing that I dont know come from where after I filled the tub. Small Issues: 1. Mosquitoes. LOTS OF MOSQUITOES in the villa. We need to constantly spray the villa. On my first night, my friend is awoken in the middle of the night because he is bitten by mosquitoes. In the morning, we request the housekeeper to change the spray because there was SO MUCH MOSQUITOE BLOOD on the linen (my friend stay up for 1 hour trying to kill the mosquitoes inside the veil [kelambu]).On our second night, we sprayed the room first every night and the issue is solved but these kinds of things should have been anticipated by the staffs before the guests arrived. They should've sprayed the room first on our first night. 2. Breakfast selection is so limited. Back in Feb, the selection is diverse (there was cereal, fruits, etc.. an entire book filled with breakfast menu) and we have so many options to choose from. Now, the menu is severely limited (only fried rice/noodle and western option). Only one piece of paper. The standard declines rapidly. All in all, I WOULD STAY AWAY from this villa if I were you. The STANDARD has DECLINED SO MUCH in just several months. With the Covid going on, there was tons of better villas and hotel that are discounted that is 10000x better than Kanishka Villa and SOOO MUCH better price/quality ratio.

Response from , Owner at Kanishka Villas
Responded 27 Nov 2020
Dear Tripadvisor Member, Thank you for booking at our Kanishka Villas for your return visit in August. And thank you for taking the time to write your detailed review. We most regret that your second visit to Kanishka Villas was disappointing for you, as you have indicated without reserve in your piece. We note the positive remarks following your stay with us in February of this year, that you found the accommodation to be one of the best you have experienced, with a good variety for breakfast and you considered you had good value for money. You mention the COVID-19 pandemic in the passing, only as a reason why there should be many better accommodation deals available in Bali at this time. It would have been courteous from your side to acknowledge the effects of the pandemic on the hospitality sector in Bali. Never before in the history of Bali's tourism has a catastrophe of such magnitude occurred, and I speak from a personal perspective of having been associated with Bali for 43 years. Not even after the Bali bomb of October 2002 has Bali's tourism suffered to such a degree. Our resorts, like most others on the island, have been devoid of guests since the last days of March this year. Whilst we have managed to retain the majority of our staff, working hours have been slashed and wages accordingly. Income has remained close to zero. Whilst we understand your chagrin following your August stay with us, and especially having previously experienced excellent service in February, we do not feel it unreasonable for you to acknowledge the severe hardships of operating in the current pandemic situation, a display of some empathy and sympathy perhaps; instead you have chosen {as the metaphor goes} to knock us when we are down. I can well assure you that we have no intention of staying down. Sincerely, Douglas Wallace

Stayed in two bedroom pool villa for 3 nights. Room was clean but old. Very limited choice for breakfast. Ordered in-room dining. Did not like it. Air conditioning need to be upgraded. Staffs were excellent. Great shuttle bus service around Seminyak area. Good location but would not recommend for a longer stay.

It is our 3rd times stay at kaniskha villa. Always enjoy our stay there. They offer reasonable price with excellent services! Fast response butler, free shuttle around seminyak, quiet and peaceful vibes even though the villa is located in a busy Seminyak street. You can easily find restaurants, supermarkets, spa and massages, shops on walking distance. Their breakfast also tastes really good ☺️ Since I was there since 2015, I think it is time to renovate the property because it's become older and some parts are old and dull. But overall, Kaniskha always in our heart and our "go to" property when we go to Bali! Thank you!

I booked this villa based on its rating on trip advisor. It is absolutely not worth the money paid. The villa is tired and aged. Furnishings are worn. Mattress is lumpy, pillows stunk so bad they must be damp or musty inside and desperately need replacing. Thé robe in the wardrobe was musty and smelly as though it had been used many times by others and never washed. This is not what you call a luxury escape away. The bathroom had a terrible smell which I think is the chemical used to seal the flooring. It’s a strong chemical smell. The shower was mouldy. I felt dirty taking a shower there. Again this isn’t what you expect when paying so much for a hotel. There are so many options in Bali. Don’t waste your money. Lastly, I upgraded to a pool villa before arrival and I was told we would receive a 10 min welcome massage upon arrival , we were never offered anything like that. The food is mediocre. The pool was nice but the experience was let down by the tardiness of the furnishings and the cleanliness. I believe the owners need to invest some money in upgrading the villas. It’s just not up to standard, with so many competitors around. I wish I’d gone back to some of the other villas I’ve stayed at before or booked a 5*hotel. This villa is a 2 star property at best. Probably the most poorly furnished property I’ve stayed at in Bali .
