Eshara works as well as an eight (or five) bedroom residence as it does as three smaller individual villas.  With all the connecting walls hidden away it certainly feels open and spacious.  The pools do dominate the gardens, leaving relatively small patches of open lawn, however there is plenty of deck space with loungers and outdoor seating.  We would certainly recommend the combined villas for a group of up to 16 who want to be centrally located.  You do not get more ‘in town’ than this.

All the bedrooms are well designed with modern ensuite bathrooms and plenty of storage, and most open out onto the pleasant gardens. Blackout curtains and TVs are nice touches.

During our visit, the staff looked after us really well with smiling service and a willingness to please that made us feel very comfortable.

Highlights

Try to time your arrival at the villa for early evening.   When you walk through the front door and cross the first lounge area the first thing you will notice are the pools and gardens beautifully lit with flames from the burners.   It is a stunning effect that will soften even the hardest heart.   Another highlight has to be the villa’s central Seminyak location.

Surprises

Eshara is in a residential area connected by a maze of lanes barely wide enough to take a car – gridlock is not uncommon (but doesn’t usually last long), although no one seems to mind as the lovely Balinese temperament takes over.   Being residential means a certain amount of ambient noise – the odd motorbike or radio and (throughout Seminyak) plane overhead.   The villa is not near a main road though and we found it does become staggeringly peaceful after dark, eerily so given how popular the restaurants and bars are down the road.

The villas are stunning. Excellent for a large group or family gathering. The staff were wonderful, unobtrusive and very friendly and helpful. The villas and outside areas were immaculately clean and well maintained. The service was seemless.

We booked all three Eshara Villas for one week . There were 10 adults and 8 children in our family group. After doing a lot of research for accommodation in Bali we found this was one of the few Villa complexes that could accommodate our whole extended family. We occupied the whole three Villas which could all be linked together to make one large complex. We could not fault anything about the Villas in any way, everything was just perfect. We were looked after by the staff in a very polite and caring way. They were very good with all the children. We thoroughly enjoyed all the Indonesian dishes they prepared for us, however they would willing accommodate all tastes. We would definitely recommend Eshara Villas for a very special holiday.

My family of 10 adults and 7 kids from 1 year to 10 years old recently stayed in all 3 villas. We were fabulously looked after by Nyoman and his wonderful staff and our holiday was truly fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they happily organised meals, taxis, massages, baby sitters and called anyone we needed. I have never stayed in a villa where we were so pampered. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Seminyak.

Eshara Villas were perfect for our large group of kids, adults and a couple of elderly mums. We had three pools between three villas and allocated one to kids, one to adults and left one in between for just chilling. The staff really made our visit perfect and were there to prepare drinks and food and blow up pool toys etc. there was no shortage of clean sweet smelling pool towels and we always came home from shopping or dinner to no mess . As a Bali veteran and over forty trips under my belt, I can tell you that not all villas have the level of staff service that Eshara has. Close to Ku De Ta and all of the best restaurants yet quiet and peaceful , it was a great location. This end of Seminyak is best as the traffic is not so bad and it's only a couple of mins in a taxi to go to dinner. We would definitely recommend to any group.

We can only praise all the staff at Villa Eshara who made our holiday a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We stayed in all 3 interconnecting villas with 13 friends, and the 14 staff looked after our every need and went the extra mile to make us welcome and comfortable and provide a personalised service. The chef is a fantastic cook, dining in for dinner, breakfast and lunches are highly recommended. The villas are beautiful and comfortable, with spacious bathrooms and some with 2 showers (indoor and outdoor shower), the pools and gardens are immaculately maintained. Well done to the staff, I can highly recommend staying here, whether you stay in just one of the villas or choose the open option with 2 or 3 villas.

I have been going to Bali for 25 years and have stayed at many beautiful hotels and villas but this topped them all. I took 15 women for my 50 th birthday celebration, 7 who had never been to Bali before!!I booked out the whole Villa Eshara complex. Well I have spoilt them!!! I was so impressed with the prompt pick up at the airport by polite, well dressed Elite Haven drivers. The transport was of high quality. The villa is amazing in and out . The living areas are well presented and very inviting and the pool areas just lovely.The photos are just as it is !!!! superb!!!!! But I must say the staff made our holiday. I cannot fault them . We were treated like queens . There service was exceptional and always with a smile!!! They were happy to make all our Bodyworks app and reservations we requested. They even set up a daily whiteboard with all activities on for the day. We ate in everyday for breakfast. My Bali coffee with a side serve of hot milk just appeared at the right time every morning .The breakfasts were delicious. We ate in 2 nights and the food was amazing, restaurant material ,thanks to Eddie!!!! I'm bringing my husband back next year with some family and friends. Just working out some dates Than kyou to everyone at Villa Eshara for making my 50 th the best ever Thanks also to Yudith and Trio from Elite Havens who looked after my booking. The service and prompt emails was A+++++.Will not hesitate to deal with Elite Havens. Very professional in every way Thanks Again xxxx

We booked all three units 1,2 and 3 for a wedding. This is the place to be at. All friends and family were accommodated and their individual needs where met by very attentive and professional staff. The location is slightly away from the busy streets which makes it both quiet and a bit of an oasis a mist the busy organised confusion that takes place in the streets the Bali. The facilities are excellent, the gardens are beautiful and the security made everyone sleep well. They handled our money conversion and sourced best rates with no fuss.
