We have stayed here before and it was excellent. It was great this time until it was time to leave. We had arranged for the hotel to transfer us to our Kuta hotel. On a number of occasions I had mentiioned that we were flexible with the timing if their driver was busy. Bali has very limited testing (via Jakarta?) for coronavirus, indeed there seems to be a policy of not testing. It is unbelievable that Bali has no cases when more advanced countries like Singapore and Malaysia report many. If cases are not identified the virus will spread unchecked. Accordingly we avoided taxis as much as possible during our trip, the drivers work long hours and share the car with their passengers, without a glass partition. As we were leaving we were told our driver was waiting. it wasn't the expected hotel vehicle, the hotel had hired a local taxi with an old car. it's a disappointment to be transferred in a substandard vehicle but much worse shortly after we departed the driver was coughing all the way to Kuta. He was clearly ill, should have been tested for coronavirus and isolated. As soon as we got to our new hotel we showered and washed our clothes. We have been OK for one week so far, another week should see us in the clear. This driver was constantly coughing, the hotel staff would have noticed whilst he waited for us but they still put us in the cab and didn't let us know they were not going to transfer us. They kept it quiet until the baggage was loaded and of course (not knowing the driver was ill) we didn't want to be rude to the driver. This is an expensive property, the attitude to the safety of guests is unacceptable. Avoid.…
I have officially found my new favourite villa in Seminyak - Cicada! My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights in December and fell in love with this immaculately clean townhouse. The staff were super friendly, and the villa is well hidden so it was quiet, but not far from all the great night spots. The place was clean and had all the little amenities you could want, including a Bluetooth speaker. New favourite place to stay!
We loved every thing about our stay! Outstanding hotel, polite and very welcoming staff. Awesome swimming pool. Very comfortable bed. Located 5 min walking distance away from busy and noisy central street.
This location was the last stop of our holidays and surely was the peak of it. The rooms are very clean, staff is very friendly and helpful and never misses a chance to help. For sure to highlight is the very good food in terms of price and quality perspectives. The free of charge hotel shuttle within Seminyak saved us a lot of time and kept us from negotiating with local taxi services. Whenever we left the room to go the the city, our room was cleaned an put into order on our return. In the evening they even put some incenses outside of the room, which made it even more cozy. Make sure you book rooms with the breakfast as it offers something for every kind of taste with an amazing quality.
Really enjoyed our stay. Friendly and professional staff, clean and comfortable. Everything works, breakfast is served to the room on time. Quality all around. Would stay again for sure. Location is amazing, right at the heart of everything, but just off to the side so it's quiet and private. 24hr security is reassuring as well.
