Villa Des Indes
Ranked #141 of 431 Speciality Lodging in Seminyak
Reviewed 31 October 2017 via mobile

Villa Des Indes is a superb getaway for those who just wanna chill by the pool, enjoy the beautiful Balinese decor and ambience. Very good and attentive staff who responded promptly to requests , helpful and were yet flexible in acceding to our service demands. The rooms were beautifully designed and ours in the bigger corner room came with nice open bathtub n rain showers. The location is great being just a five minute walk to the beach as well as Seminyak main malls and eateries. Only lapse was the almost unbearable pungent smell which came from the drainage or shower in the first two days when they apparently doing something to the pipes or heater which let off horrendous smell. But that disappeared by the second night. Overall it was a fantastic experience and I would return to it again - I highly recommend it to guests who like to chill by the pool or villas and hangs out at night st nearby eateries and bars. It is as good as it looks!

Villas Des Indes is situated on Gang Astinapura, a side alley clearly named for the mythical capital of Kauravas, Hastinapura.

With a traditional decor and Edwardian era Balinese art, the real comparison instead is with Maya Sabha, the magical palace of their cousins and (eventual) competitors, Pandavas. Be careful of the wooden pathways, or you may just fall into the water like Duryodhana did.

The service was attentive, friendly and excellent. The rooms were expansive and nice. The pool was a welcome break from the heat. The price was reasonable for what they offer.

We were in Villa des Indes 1 for some days, it was a special occasion for us (our Honeymoon). We were surrounded by beauty 24/7! Everything is choosen and placed with care and taste, the place is built like old Indonesian houses with several bedrooms (actually little apartments) and a beautiful common space with gorgeous pool, so you can have your own privacy but also socialize with other guests. Also the staff was AMAZING! During our honeymoon across all Indonesia we couldn't find someone so kind, prepared and professional like them: you always found someone if necessary, everybody was so friendly. They also gave us a hand when we felt sick after some excursions. Probably the best would be to go there in 4 or six people to enjoy the villa with friends, but even in two was GREAT!

Room Tip: If you can check all the rooms before choose since they are all different.

Villa des Indes is a beautiful villa in the heart of Seminyak - in a quiet street of luxury villas a short walk from the beach (now thankfully spruced up with the arrival of nearby 5 star hotels and beach clubs), fabulous restaurants like La Lucciola and Bambu, and beach clubs Potatohead and KuDeTa.
forget sparse lines, glass and steel - this place is more about conjuring up a sense of colonial life in the tropics. Only colonial villas didn't come with a huge pool like this one does!
There is plenty of space to lounge about in - the grounds are extensive and the rooms are very accommodating. There are 2 large suites with lounge areas and outside showers, although the smaller rooms in a more recent 2 storey villa are brighter and more modern.
The staff are very accommodating - especially Pandi and Esta (I probably have the spelling wrong sorry!) always on hand to rustle up a bit to eat or of course cocktails. A good tip is to bring your own alcohol - they will mix cocktails for you and this makes it much cheaper.
I'd thoroughly recommend this place for an indulgent way to enjoy Bali!

Room Tip: The smaller rooms in the 2 storey annex are brighter and more modern

Tucked out of the way in a fairly optimum location, this is really a hidden gem. Well maintained, amazing service, just a beautiful space to spend some time with friends. We were advised on arrival that a number of celebrities have stayed.

They light the candles at the entrance way every evening, so leaving and returning is itself an experience. The staff cannot do enough for you, and will organise scooters, table reservations, relaxing massages in the gardens and pretty much anything else you can think of.

The bar is open anytime you're up, with a fridge big enough to fit anything you bring with you from duty free, although the duty free at Bali airport is not the cheapest in the area, so I recommend stocking up on your exit airport if you wish to take advantage of this facility.
