My bf & I stayed 2 nights in both The Ahimsa (A) and W Hotel (W) when we were in Bali last week. Both were running promos so we paid USD315nett for A and USD530nett for W.

A looked as gorgeous as the professional photos shown on the website, location & service was great, the villa was very big etc... But something freaked me out a lot more than my bf. There were so many mosquitos in the villa that all the sprays & coils did not help! On the 2nd night, when I went out of the room to get a glass of water from the kitchen, I ran into 2 rats! I'm not afraid of cockroaches, but RATs!!! Putting this down may turn away some clients but its the truth... sorry ...

W was a lot more expensive so we expected more. No mossies, rats or lizards in sight. Breakfast spread was perfect. We booked the "spectacular ocean view"room, so it was lovely to lie on the outdoor couch at the balcony to watch the sun set. Although we didnt have the luxury of our own pool, W's pool was fantastic. All the outdoor beds and couches were divine! Like other established hotels chains, W had attention to details such as the lovely scent 24 hrs a day, Bliss toiletries, Bosh sound systems, professional staff etc. The only vice is that everything costs a lot more, the food, spa & transport.

When we return to Bali again next year, we will be trying another 2 hotels : )

Four of us (two couples) stayed 5 nights at the Ahimsa in Dec 2010 after looking through many Villa options. The 2 Bed Villa at Ahimsa that we got through a local travel agent was great value in comparison to the other Villas.

The Villa is truly luxurious and has all possible facilities, with a nice mid size pool, open kitchen, common living area. The staff comes and cooks breakfast in front of you every morning. They are as accomodating as possible and customised as much as they could for our vegetarian friend but she still had to rely mainly on fruits. The Villa and the pool is cleaned every day.

The location is awesome as Jl Kunti is just a short walk away from the main Jl Seminyak where all the boutiques and restaurants are.

There is great privacy inside the villas as you hear no outside noise and the Ahimsa staff is quite discrete.

We loved the holiday so much that we just wanted to settle down at Ahimsa Seminyak!

Room Tip: All Villas have tall boundary walls for privacy. Choose a 2 bed Villa if you are traveling with friends instead of separate villas. Much better value and more fun.

This was our second stay at Ahimsa in three years and our first at the estate-beach location. To be clear - The main Ahimsa is on JL Kunti across from the Bali Deli. The estate is a much smaller satellite development directly beside the Oberoi and Ku De Ta. You need to be very certain you get the property you are looking for as it can be quite confusing and if you end up at the Kunti property expecting a beach vacation you will be dissappointed.

The JL Kunti location is excellently located for self-catering from the Bali Deli and good access to some of the better shopping and hipper boutiques and restaurants in Seminyak. (Although this is changing with the development of the northern beach strip and areas around the W.) The Ahimsa estate is better for beach access and proximity to the surf. Also great if you plan on hanging out at Ku De Ta or other popular sunset spots.

The owners behind both locations appear adept at finding awkward sites and using some smart design principals to turn them into romantic and quiet retreats. Both are situated on very busy roads in stragely situated corners and intersections. From the outside you would never believe that the Kunti location could possibly be the relaxing little Oasis that it is. These are low key, quiet retreats that feel very private. There can be some minimal street noise at peak hours if you get one of the villas abutting the road in either location, so best ask for an inside location. The plunge pools are wonderful and the indoor/outdoor living spaces beat any hotel room. I particularly like the in-room breakfast service as everything arrives on your table fresh and cooked just how you like it.

This was strictly a beach trip for us and thus we stayed at the estate. In truth it looks heavily used and could probably use a reno and update. The location is superb if you plan on spending a lot of time in the waves. The biggest problem at the moment are the bathrooms which are jury-rigged with a rainshower attachement in a small tub. It's impossible to shower without completely soaking the entire bathroom. If I were the owners I would consider converting the shower into an open/outdoor area and dispensing with the tub. The kitchen area also needs and upgrade to make it more user friendly. Bring some skin-friendly mosquito spray to deal with the dusk emergence and make use of the coils to keep them at bay.

The strength of this place is the staff. It's a small group as you would expect in a place of this size but they work very well as a team. No matter who you approach for something it will get sorted quickly. They are attentive and helpful while respecting your privacy and know how to anticipate potential needs and problems.

Room Tip: At either location ask for a villa furthest from the gate/street.

This was our third visit to Bali and our third visit to The Ahimsa Jl.Kunti.My partner and I with our two teenage boys love the villas with the grass around the sunny pools.The efficient friendly nature of the staff guided by expat Mr Stuart ensure that you are treated as a VIP.The airport transfer service & local drop offs no matter what time of day are comforting.Always there are upgrades to vehicles,rooms and concepts nothing gets shoddy.This year The Ahimsa have added a nice touch by talking a photo of the family at the villa and then framing and presenting it on departure.Ours is on display at home as a constant reminder of our enjoyable stay.I agree with the other reviews that the location is fantastic,the open lounge is conducive to family bonding,the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable,the bathrooms are luxurious with the showers exposed to the open.Breakfast is great with staff coming in to prepare and serve.We can also recommend The Ahimsa Beach at Jimbaran Bay & The Ahimsa near Seminyak Beach.We divide our time between the three and love them all equally.
