Second day gave washing to Iluh, told it would be returned by evening, had to ask for it the following morning and several items were missing... after consultation a few of the items were returned however not all and with no explanation or apology to follow.
Our friends reported having bags touched throughout the trip.
One bottle of water, two tiny bars of soap and linen/towels changed every couple of days throughout the week was well under expectation. When we asked Iluh to change the sheets after coming down with sickness, we had to explain why!
Breakfast has no variation, it remains the same day in day out and if you would like extras, i.e bacon, you will be charged.
The lock on our door fell off several times.
The shower pressure was atrocious and temperature varied throughout stay. The last night, all pressure was lost and the temperature only cold!
Overall, I would not recommend this Villa to anybody and if you do decide to stay at Villa Esha, be careful with your belongings whilst staying there.
Villa Esha Seminyak I is a fabulous villa to stay in - the house and gardens are well maintained and created a tropical paradise. The service provided by the villa staff, Iluh and Syntia, was outstanding - they assisted us with everything we needed, cooked us fabulous Indonesian meals and a delicious daily breakfast. Iluh was particularly beautiful and generous with my children which always makes a difference when travelling with children. I would recommend it to any one, especially families with children.
Our extended family really enjoyed our stay here. The accommodation was perfect for our family. The hosts were very friendly and helpful but not in the way of us enjoying our time together. The only thing i could find as i negative would be the mosquitoes, you need to have mozi coils on which the hosts organise for you. As the living rooms are outside.
From the airport pick up to drop off the stay was amazing. We traveled with ages from 3 years to 88 years. The rooms were fantastic, some ground floor for 'grandpa' and up the top for the mid 20's so they had their privacy. Buzzing seminyak was in walking distance but we preferred to catch a cab for $5!
The villa has sun most of the day for those who want to build on their tan and the pool is a welcoming sight all day. We all loved the outside showers.
Ilui and cinthia were fantastic..if they were not keeping the 3 year old occupied and looking after 'grandpa' they were cooking us fantastic meals and giving 'grandma' a well needed break. Kadek could not have been more helpful and his picks for restaurants are both reasonable and great food. They shopped for us and could NOT be more helpful.
Our only complaint is that we did not book it for longer! :) We will definitely be back.
We could not have asked for a better start to our honeymoon! On arrival we were greeted by Iluh, Syntia and Kadek and shown our beautiful room that had been decorated with 'I love you' balloons and rose petals. We then had a beautiful meal that evening in the villa cooked by Iluh and Syntia which could possibly be the best meal we have had in Bali so far, a delicious mix of meat and seafood prepared and served perfectly. In the few days to follow any request or question we had was solved by Iluh including a nasty case of Bali belly (not from the Villa) my husband had on our last night which Iluh stayed with us until he was sleeping and called a doctor to come to the Villa. We will truly miss Iluh and her team until our next visit to Bali. We would recommend this Villa to anyone coming to Seminyak as it is in a great location walking distance to most of Seminyak's top restaurants, the staff are fabulous and the Villa is gorgeous and so clean!
