Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Stayed here for 3 days after staying at 3 other locations around Bali, and although I made three phenomenal picks, all with fantastic people and service, the staff at Icon were even more amazing! They were so gracious and amazingly helpful --even the tiniest of asks were responded to with eagerness and such warm hospitality!

Accommodations were nice and spacious. Especially nice for families with older kids because of the separation. You can't beat the value of this place in terms of quality and cost.

The downside to this place is location if you want to spend time at the beach. Some reviewers say you can easily walk to the beach in 20 minutes but that's just not realistic. When we went in September, it was stiflingly hot and combine that with the ultra narrow streets and traffic--it's not practical to walk, especially with kids. Now Icon does offer car service and they can easily drive you there, but it's just not as convenient as staying someplace in the beach. (You still need to get your own transport back). The main part of Seminyak is located in same area as beach, so same comments apply.

That said, if being near the Seminyak hub of activity isn't important to you, the Icon might be perfect for you.

Helpful tips:
- The breakfast spread and high tea are amazing and it's so nice to have it brought to your villa. It's included in your stay so adds so much value!
- Bottled water provided and free
- Refrigerator cones stocked with small supply of sodas and Bin Tangs, also free, just no restocking
- Car service offered free as available -- so nice and convenient. We never had prob with availability as they have multiple cars and can drop you at beach, shopping area or airport
- you can also use Uber to get around. We would use car service to get places then Uber back from main part if Seminyak for about US$2.50
- Since we missed being at the beach, we went to another hotel on a day pass, depending on where you go, you can use facilities for US$12/person or free if you have lunch and buy drinks there
- Landry is super cheap and convenient here, about US$1.25 for a pair of shorts or Tshirt, same day turn in before 10 am
- There is a street of stores and restaurants that is walkable within 5 minutes, we had dinner at Bo Bun and Fat Gajah, and they were fantastic (see my reviews). Good, safe food and drink for about US $60 for my family of 5. Was really nice to have these great restaurants close by. I also saw signs for laundry on this street but we did not use as Icons service was so low priced and convenient)
- Icon is about s 45 min drive from airport, a short distance really but traffic is so bad the travel times are much longer than you'd expect
- We stayed in Ubud prior to coming here, we called Icon and asked them to arrange for car to pick us up and bring us there, cost was about US$60 for this transfer

The accommodation, food & staff were all magnificent. If we're lucky enough to come back to wonderful Bali again we'll be staying here. No hesitation. You've really got to force yourself to go out sightseeing as you don't want to leave your pool villa

Seminyak icon is not a hotel... It is a Villa. You cant expect hotel environment. As well as this is not a place for everyone. If you want complete privacy.. Hide in your own villa... Relax by the private pool and don't want to see anyone else around then YES this is the place.


We had a nice experience here. We stayed in a one bedroom villa for 4 nights.

Location : located in a quite street so you may feel disconnected. It is 5-10 min walk from busy legian shopping street and 20-30 min walk to 66 beach.
Free Shuttle service is available but limited availability.

Villa : exactly what you see in the photos and virtual tour. Clean and Room service is one of the best. Every time you go out they organise your room.
Pool is deep 1.25-1.5 m and long enough for a swim.

Food : breakfast had limited choice as well as a la carte menu. But prices are very reasonable comparing with restaurants in Seminyak.
High tea is amazing. +++

Staff : very friendly. Always smile and greet you. Almost all the places we visited we experience this. Bali people are very friendly.

Mini bar is free so what is in there you can consume without a cost.


Negatives

As lot of people mention in the comments villa had 3 keys and sliding doors were a struggle to lock.

Lighting in side the bedroom and bathroom was not good enough. Felt very dull and dark at night.

Bathroom was bit smaller and commode to close to shower glass. When you sit your legs hits on the glass so have to sit side ways.

Bed was not comfortable. We complained and they tried their best to help but for this level of villa that mattress was not very comfy.

Towels looks very old.


Overall we had a pleasant experience.

Recently went to Bali for a wedding and ended our trip at Seminyak Icon - so glad we did!
Centrally located
Spotless
The day spa staff fantastic - a little more expensive than downtown but worth it!
Door and security excellent
Food good (breakfast excellent)
But the best thing is the staff - nothing is too much trouble - they actually go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible
If there was a negative thing - our unit 11 could of done with a new shower head and that's trying to find something!
The staff make that place!
