“Great value Cicada”
Reviewed 19 January 2011

We arrived at Cicada after a fantastic stay at Villa Sungai with our extended family; from 13 we became 2! Had read a lot of good reviews about Cicada and wasn't dissapointed. I absolutely love the location; I am now a Petitenget convert and will stay in the area from now on. Cicada is situated next door to Sentosa Villas in a quiet street, very short walking distance to the main road. We literally had everything we needed in walking distance, including the beach which was just fantastic. The townhouses themselves are very large, and we stayed in one of only eight, so nice and quiet. They are in the process of building a smaller studio style townhouse which will increase their numers to nine. We stayed in a one bedroom which was huge; a large lounge/dining/kitchen are fully equipped with all the mod cons, and a small gardn which ad a plunge pool. The bedroom was enoromous with two vanity units, outdoor bath, shower and semi-enclosed toilet. The decor was quite modern, but still had a Balinese feel to it. Breakfast was included each day and delivered to us each morning at a ime to suit us. The breakfast menu consisted of the usual eggs, pancakes, french toast, noodles, rice, muesli, cereal, bakery items, juices and fruit. There was also a large water dispenser in each townhouse, as well as Illy coffee and quality teas. The mini bar and laundry prices were very reasonable, Rooms were serviced twice daily, and coils lit each night. Free wifi in all townhouses also. The staff at Cicada are lovely and very helpful, with a butler assigned to you each day for any requests. There is a very large main pool with several sunbeds around, and the 3 bedroom townhouse has its own large pool. We were lucky enough to stay in most room types, and can honestly recommend any configuration. I particularly loved the 3 bedroom townhouse which would be great (and very affordable) with a larger group. I would not hesitate in staying at Cicada again, and would find it difficult to find similar accommodaion at the same price naywhere in the area. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Cicada and we loved it. The staff were fantastic, the location was lovely, out of the hustle and bustle a bit, but close enough to enjoy all the attractions. The resort was lovely and the size and space of the villa was more than adequate. We especially loved the outdoor bathrooms and the individual attention that we were received made it a very special experience! Our private pool was equally fantastic and well used. We will definately be going back to visit Cicada and plan on holding a big birthday party there in the future....

We stayed at Cicada in August 2010 and I have just read a few not so positive reviews of this property and I am really disappointed as it is a such a lovely place to stay. I have travelled around the world and stayed in alot of places and Cicada would have to be one of my favourite.

My husband and I had stayed 3 nights in a large resort in Legian and found the hustle and bustle very hard to deal with. A friend had stayed at Cicada previously and could not recommend it enough to us, so we were excited to get there for 4 nights. Seminyak is a gorgeous area to stay and I don't think I would worry about staying anywhere else now if I went back to Bali.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment just next to reception. The living area and bedroom were very large and furnished just beautifully. I loved that we could prepare our own meals if we liked or we could order from room service. All meals that we ordered were of excellent quality, we also really appreciated the Illy coffee and coffee plunger that was provided. The plunge pool was a perfect size for the two of us to cool off. The main large pool just outside our gate was lovely, perfect for a swim at night. It never really got too busy that we couldn't get a lounge beside the pool to relax on during the day. The bed was so comfortable and we slept very well. The staff were always smiling and happy to help us with everything we asked. We spent alot of time in our apartment and were given alot of privacy.

The mostquitos in Bali are quite a problem as some times of the year, Cicada provided mosquito coils and we lathered on our insect repellant and only got the occassional bite. There was insect spray supplied in the room so we gave the room a spray about half an hour before bed and kept the doors shut at night. Also there are dogs roaming around the Island of Bali, best if you don't approach them, they usually pass you without any problems, they are used to alot of people being around them.

I always felt secure while at Cicada - there is a guard posted at the front of the property and it was located a short stroll from some excellent restaurants and cafes to explore. The Lounge Room (a fine dining restaurant a a short distance away from Cicada) the food was amazing and although a little more expensive than other restaurants, definitley worth a visit. It has a gorgeous setting, perfect for a romantic dinner for two. Walking back to the hotel at night was fine, but occassionally we caught a Taxi from the centre of Seminyak and it didn't cost much at all. Just be mindful to take a map of where the hotel is located as some taxi drivers may not be aware of where it is located down a quiet road off the busy street.

I loved Cicada so much I am recommending that my Mum and Dad go there this year. I really couldn't find any fault with Cicada and for those people that do, then maybe they should reconsider travelling anywhere outside their home country.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your review.

Cicada encourages all feedback be it good and bad to grow, improve and enhance our services in a manner that is conducive to our guests needs.

Feedback allows us to monitor what these needs are and implement the necessary changes to appease a situation thus preventing it re-occuring to another guest.

Occasionally other mitigating factors, in our experience, during one's stay such as illness and weather may cloud one's judgement. The opinion aired may not only be of our establishment but Bali in general given the experience had at the time and that is one's prerogative to divulge to other travellers.

It is appreciated to hear and learn of your experience unbiased by weather or mosquitos or dogs - they are a part of Bali and one cannot pretend otherwise.

Your account of your stay with us is received with thanks not only by Management, whom matter the least, but by those that turn up to work every day and are affected by the less happy experiences posted - perhaps not related to the Resort where they earn their living. They are happy to do what they do best. Please others and just do their job well. We thank you.

We've found our special place in Bali
after our 5th visit Cicada still delivers on every level
1. Quiet spot but just minutes from the beach and best restaurants

2. Exceptional value
after many stays in private villas we've experienced nothing like this quality at this price

3. Stable staff the same faces every visit suggest a happy team with management doing everything right

If you appreciate individual style,attention to details and cheerful attentive service the you
will love Cicada

We stayed for 4 nights at the Cicada and had a fabulous time. The staff were outstanding as was the villa we stayed in. We had the one bedroom which was so lovely it was more than we could have wished for. It is alittle bit away from the main strip of Seminyak which we liked as it was very secluded and private. It is only a short walk away to the main centre so its in the perfect location. We had our New Years Eve dinner at the villa with some friends. The service and food on offer was really exceptional and we had a very enjoyable evening. The outdoor swimming pool is lovely and the water feature is amazing. I cannot say enough about this place we both loved it and would recommend this to anyone. It was really sad to leave. We will defiantely go back for a visit.
