“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2011

Tucked down a small lane in Seminyak, away from the noise and traffic, lies Kembali Villas. We had Villa #1, and were simply blown away when we first walked in. The massive living space sprawls out onto the decking, surrounded by the meticulously maintained gardens. All fittings and appointments are tastefully modern whilst still keeping truly Balinese. The pool is huge for a villa – not a tiny plunge pool like others at this price point. Bedrooms and bathrooms again superbly done, and simply could not fault. And as said many times on TA before, service is impeccable. Some may find the maid service a little over-bearing (usually there for 3 hours in the morning, cooking and cleaning) but they work around you so you just tell them and they oblige - always smiling and always polite. Location is quiet and relaxing, and nothing more than a 10-15 min stroll to the likes of Seminyak Square, Ultimo, Rumours etc. Overall we couldn’t fault Kembali, it truly is a little hidden gem.

From the friendly and helpful security staff at the entrance, to the office staff, the maids and the other various staff, every one working at Kembali Villas seemed intent on making our stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. We ended up staying twice at Kembali in the one trip as we just absolutely loved it.
The idyllic serenity of your own personal Villa and pool and being waited on hand and foot if you desired made this far more impressive than the 5 star luxury resort we decided to check out of to come back to Kembali to finish our holiday. Kembali of course means "come back" in Balinese, and the staff certainly make the decision to come back an easy one.
You can choose to stroll the 5-10 minutes down the safe narrow laneways to the "main" street by the beach, or reception will happily call you a taxi. For a US$1.50 minimum for a phoned taxi, this will get you to pretty much anywhere local in Seminyak or up to US$5 to further afield such as Kuta (1/2 hr).
Our package included breakfast which for us with 2 girls 8-12 yrs consisted of American breakfast of eggs any style, cereal and fresh fruit (I love papaya with fresh lime juice sprinkled on top) plus good strong Javanese coffee (That's why the yanks call it a cup of "Java"). Balinese style breakfast also available.

Nothing was too hard for Anton or the office staff to assist with; from advice on tours and local restaurants to arranging for the brilliant VIP Visas and pick up from the airport.
Our special family favourite was ordering massages in our Villa for the whole family.

The range of Villas at Kembali should suit most family, couples and friends looking for a peaceful retreat with all the trimmings that won't break the bank. Sure there are probably marginally less expensive options in Seminyak, but they would be very hard pressed to match the luxury and extreme friendliness Kembali.

We will very definitely be breaking our own rule of never going back to the same place twice as Kembali and Seminyak have so much to offer.

When asked to compare Kembali with the 5 star resort in Jimbaran Bay we also stayed at, my 8 and 12 year old daughters rate Kembali as the clear favourite with a a rating of super duper awesome! My wife and I feel very much the same......

Definitely returning next year!

We had two 3 bedroom villas for 11 nights in September which easily accommodated 3 families including teenage children. The villas were spacious, clean and well kept. The breakfast food was tasty and plentiful and the staff first class.
Ordered sea-food BBQ one night which was organized by reception and was best meal of the whole holiday.
The location was very quiet and away from hustle without being too far away from beach or main restaurants
Would recommend to anyone and have no problem going back again..

Room Tip: Villa 7 is biggest.

Our first impression was "WOW...what a slice of heaven". The 3 bedroom villa was magnificent and spacious. The staff were friendly and worked really hard all day. Our maid came at 7am to cook breakfast (we have young children) and was there until midday cleaning and tidying the villa. Although a service which could not be faulted we did not have much time in the villa without there being somebody else around! If it wasnt the maid it was the pool boy or the evening maids that would come to light the mosquito coils and turn the beds down. I found myself apologising to the maid a few times as I needed to be where she was mopping or putting our things away. We tried to ask her to leave the tidying for the day on our 2nd day there but it wasnt understood. Location was OK but with small children (4 & 6), or even people not so energised, the walk to anywhere was solid. My husband hired a motorbike for the week we were in Seminyak and this proved invaluable getting the kids down to the beach and to/from the shops/restaurants. We would stay at Kembali Villas again and would also recommend to friends/family, but next time we would request that the service not be so OTT so we could enjoy the peace and tranquility that it offers.

Room Tip: All the rooms in the 3 bedroom villa were beautifully decorated and clean. There was quite a differ...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to post your comments on Trip Advisor regarding your recent visit at Kembali Villas. We are pleased to know that you have enjoyed your stay with us, and our reply below is our way of explaining your suggestions:-

1 Time maids spend cleaning villas. It’s a balance between the time the maids need to make the villa spotless & the maid leaving the villa for guest’s uninterrupted private enjoyment. We listened, so next time you need more privacy, talk to the office & they will arrange extra staff to ensure the cleaning & villa preparation is quicker

2 Distance. Yes it is a 5-10 minute walk to Eat St and KudeTa beach for adults. With children we recommend a taxi. It’s Rp20000 (US$2-50) to just about anywhere in Seminyak

We hope your onward journey from Bali was pleasant and that you have arrived at your destination fully relaxed after your stay with us. As always it was a pleasure to have you as our guest and we are looking forward to welcoming you back.

I would rate this villa as a five star villa accommodation, everything about the villas was perfect. I would definitely stay back here if I come back to Bali, The hotel is located in the heart of Seminiyak, stone’s throw away from the famous Kudeta Club.

I went with a group of 6 people and stayed in a 3 bedroom villa, the master bedroom was fantastic and huge overlooking the private pool with open air bathroom. The other rooms were also pool facing with glass doors and open air bathrooms but slightly smaller. The living room was open air with a small kitchen. The moment we entered we were served fresh juices prepared by the maids in the villas, every morning our butler prepared fresh breakfast in our villa. Pool was very clean and there was ipod dock and music system.


The Staff was very helpfulI and prompt in responding to our request, I would like to specially thank Anton from the front office, he was really helpful and after my trip I sent an email asking him for a favor and he was very prompt in reverting back.
