“Do we have to leave?”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

Quite, private, luxury villas with a wonderful Bali feel. There are 2& 3 bedroom villas available, each has its own private pool which is the perfect temperature, open living and kitchen area overlooks the pool, and is fully equipped should you wish to prepare your own meals, or alternatively as we did, have their chef come in each morning and night to prepare meals for you. The rooms are very spacious, very clean, well decorated and airconditioned. The bathroom is amazing, with indoor area converging into the outside bathroom, one room has the bath outside both have an outside shower. The only issue is the hot water system does not keep up, it will take 3-4 goes to fill the bath, leaving enough time in between for the hot water system to reheat before you can top up the next amount, and barely 2 people can get through having a warm shower. The Chandra villas are located in Seminyak and within walking distance of beach, shops and restaurants. There is a wide range of cuisines to choose from. Over all it was a fantastic experience.

The photos looked great but did not come close to the experience of actually walking in to our own very private villa at Chandra. From the time we were greeted at reception by Wayan and his beautiful staff until our sad departure, our new friends at Chandra were simply wonderful, and they really made our holiday completely relaxing. The villa is a real private haven away from the busy streets, walking in and being able to relax in our own pool was fantastic ( I was in it up to 10mins before we had to leave!) the bedroom is beautifully decorated and Air Conditioned and we really looked forward to our new towel sculpture created each day by our lady Wayan ! She prepared a lovely fresh breakfast in our villa each day for which we felt very spoilt. The in house BBQ and dinner was great and the service from all the staff was so unobtrusive and efficient we often wondered how they did it without us noticing. My wife was not keen on Bali and now wants to know when we are going back to Chandra, and that is because of the place and the people, who are just so lovely.

Hello 50Chops,

Thank you for taking the time after your stay at Chandra Luxury Villas, part of 8Hotels, to write a review about your accommodation experience.

The staff at Chandra believe that your holiday actually begins when you make that initial contact with reservations to enquire about availability. If you contact us by phone, email or facebook, we understand that it’s important to make each guest feel at ease about their decision to stay at Chandra and also to generate high expectations about our luxurious product.

Pictures are great way to let enquiring guests know that Chandra is a stunning property but it’s not until you arrive at reception and are greeted by a world class staff that you realize that Chandra is everything you expected…and more!

One of the things I love most about Chandra’s villas is there ability to transform to the needs of each guest. For a honeymooning couple, it’s their romantic paradise; for a family, it’s their tropical dream home; for a group of friends, it’s the getaway they’ve always wanted. Our villas are not just buildings, they are destinations where memories are made.

I’m happy to hear that Chandra has changed your wife’s opinion of Bali. With past and recent negative coverage of the island, it’s easy to brush Bali aside as a vacation possibility. As you have now experienced and many more will in the future, Chandra has the ability to keep the world at bay while you relax in perfect privacy. Luckily, when you decide to venture outside your private villa, Seminyaks upscale environment provides the perfect complimentary atmosphere to Chandra’s charm.

Please let your wife know that we absolutely adore our returning guests and we will try out best to recreate her desired Chandra stay.

We hope to welcome you back soon to Chandra Luxury Villas and please don't hesitate to contact myself or any of Chandra's management team if you have any questions - we are always happy to help.

Warm Regards,

My husband and I just spent 8 nights at the Chandra. Luxury and service all the way from breakfast to the amazing staff. The staff could not have done more for us they were like our family while we were there. Yes it's a little out of the way but still only a short stroll or a $2 taxi ride in to the heart of seminyak. Breakfast was amazing thanks to our lovely chef/housekeeper wayan. We were always greeted by every staff member that we passed during our stay. We stayed in villa 6. The pool was fantastic and very generous in size The villas are total privacy and we barely saw any other guest despite them being 90% booked, which made you feel like it was your own private home. If you are tossing up whether to book these villas I wouldn't have any hesitation in doing so. We will return next year and will be bringing our family and friends with us to share the experience.

Hello Mbcb66,

Thank you for taking the time after your stay at Chandra Luxury Villas, part of 8Hotels, to write a review about your accommodation experience.

I couldn’t agree with you more! Although 8Hotels has many amazing hotels within its collection, the difference between a villa and a hotel is like night and day. A hotel provides accommodation where as a villa provides an experience.

Private pools, alfresco rock showers, contemporary living/dining space…it’s like having a holiday in the comfort of your own home (only your home is on a tropical island and you have a full staff avialble 24 hours a day).

Our slightly secluded location makes for a peaceful environment and like you stated in your review, it’s only a short walk to the heart of Seminyak where you will find everything from high fashion to beachside clubs.

Thank you for your beautiful comments about Chandra’s staff. They truly are the heart and soul of our property and they provide the most luxurious product of all…their time.

Villa 6 is a desired villa and since your departure, has just recently gone through a light refurbishment so you will see a few changes during your next visit.. The high walls and water features that separate all Chandra’s villas create a quiet environment and provides the privacy requested and expected by our wonderful guests.

We can’t wait to welcome you back next year and look forward to meeting your friends and family. There is no better way to spend a family vacation then immersed in the culture and generosity of the Balinese people(and we also provide child minding services if you need a little break ;)

Warm Regards,


Larry Mullett

We have been very good friends with Wayan the GM for many years, and have followed his career. His ability (as GM) to make a Villa Resort Role special clearly shows at Chandra. Initially I thought our location was a bit isolated as when you arrive late at night and wind down the sides streets, it is difficult to get disorientated, however next morning I realised were were only 5-6 minutes walking distance from the Seminyak Square and around 15 minutes walking to the Beach and Lu Luciola etc.
We had a 3 Bedroom Villa, which was immaculate and served our needs to perfection, an excellent sized pool, a few toys for the Grandkids to play with, a great Kitchen and fantastic staff. The Beds were beautiful and comfy, and Madi, our Housekeeper, was just that, a real "Keeper", without doubt the best person we have ever had the pleasure to look after us.

Room Tip: They are all good !

Hello Geoff48,

Thank you for taking the time after your stay at Chandra Luxury Villas, part of 8Hotels, to write a review about your accommodation experience.

Wayan Londra, our beloved General Manager, is truly the heart of Chandra and his combination of experience, professionalism and determination has excelled Chandra to be a competitor in Semiyaks growing luxury villa market.

I agree, arriving anywhere at night can be disorienting but by day it's easy to see that Chandra is in an amazing location. Chandra has the serenity of an exotic getaway, the comfort of a residential family suburb and the access to Seminyaks hottest and most desirable attractions. This is true for all 8Hotel properties as location ranks extremely high on the list of reasons to make a property part of the 8Hotels Collection.

Chandra's 3 bedroom villas are very desired, especially by returning guests and are always the first to be reserved. The pool is 12 meter long and great for morning laps or sitting beside it with a morning paper and gourmet coffee.

I love hearing compliments about Chandra's exceptional architecture and beauty but the staff are really what makes Chandra a piece of paradise and I'm humbled to be a part of their team . Madi has been singled out before by past guests, along with numerous other staff and I can assure you that compliments on Chandra's service will keep rolling in - it's hard not to appreciate Chandra's staff when they treat every guest with true Balinese hospitality and respect.

We hope to welcome you back soon to Chandra Luxury Villas and please don't hesitate to contact myself or any of Chandra's management team if you have any questions - we are always happy to help.

Warm Regards,

Just down a side street next to the Oberoi and Ku De Ta, a great location to switch off and relax. Short walk to a fairly wide variety of shops. The villa was well maintained, fresh water in a water cooler.... great pool.... food cooked in kitchen for us or brought in from local restaurants and plated up... aircon worked a treat. Not cheap, but probably decent value compared to, say, the Oberoi nearby. High, thick walls meant little noise from outside/other villas. Only issues were at one point the girls used up the hot water running a bath (didn't take much water before it ran out either), each room had a door that faced into the pool area - could be locked from the outside/inside but a concern for parents with younger kids alone in one of the rooms [lock them in to stop them falling into the water at night, but what if there's a problem and they need you....], the road is narrow and can feel a little squeezy walking down it & avoiding cars/bikes... for the most part, if you're not going to Ku De Ta or the local shops, just hire the car & driver. It's not expensive.

Some definite positives - the driver was great, the staff very friendly/helpful, they also arranged (for a small fee) for the VIP processing at the airport [can't recommend that highly enough - arrived at 2:30am due to plane having to fly around volcanic ash cloud, and just breezed straight through].

Overall we had a great stay, and would not hesitate coming back if the opportunity came up and we would definitely recommend it to others.
