Kalimaya III Reviews

When we first opened the gilded Balinese doors onto Villa Kalimaya III’s garden, we thought we’d come to the wrong place – surely it was too big to be only a three-bedroom villa?  The element of surprise was maintained throughout our visit, as we discovered not one but two living rooms as well as a separate dining room and a second dining area on the upstairs terrace – an extraordinary amount of space, especially in such a hip Seminyak hotspot.

This is a really well designed, well-furnished villa with a lot of extra details to ensure a comfortable, cossetted stay. With the large pool, jacuzzi and infra-red sauna to frolic in (plus four TVs and DVD players), there was plenty to keep us occupied without making use of the complimentary Canggu Club membership.  And when we did step beyond the villa walls, we were on the beach or in Seminyak’s best restaurants and boutiques within minutes.

This is the perfect place for a couple, three couples or a family of six who want to be sociable and yet still be able to get away from each other.  The cook, butlers and housekeepers – all charming and helpful – divide their time between this and the other three Kalimaya villas along the same quiet lane.  We considered this a bonus as it means guests benefit from a professional team, but privacy is not compromised by their continued presence – and it means that self-catering is a personal choice, not a prerequisite.

Highlights

Considering Kalimaya is a stone’s throw from Seminyak Square, we couldn’t believe the sheer amount of space we had to ourselves – and it was so quiet too. We loved the huge pool, and all the surprising extras such as jacuzzi and infra-red sauna.
 

Surprises

There were surprises aplenty, all positive…. this three-bedroom villa is pretty near faultless

Thank you very much for the wonderful stay. It was a beautifully relaxing time that was made possible by the amazing staff - so friendly, helpful and great at helping us with everything we wanted. Breakfast was lovely everyday. Alit was very helpful with bookings for restaurants and passes to Finn’s club and looking into all our needs. The massages were also great. The villa was beautiful, so lovely to have been spoiled in this little slice of heaven. Fantastic location too.

This was amazing. When we arrived, the staff were very kind. The food was great. The beach was walking distance so were many restaurants. I can't get over the fact that everyone was so kind. This was very relaxing trip and i would come here anytime. Sadly we must go back to Singapore. It's a paradise. The people and service are wonderful. My only advise is wear waterproof shoes when going to some beaches. They can be rocky. Thank you Lina and all the crew.

The Chef is FABULOUS and especially if you simply ask him to create his favorite dishes instead of picking from the menu, he is a master. The Balinese People are the reason I returned to Bali and why I will return again. I have referred my friends and family and will continue to stay their each time I return.

Beautiful gorgeous villa which indulged us. I like the fact that the living room and dining room came complete with doors and aircon so we can choose to enjoy the warm balinese air or keep the mossys out with aircon, which was exactly why I chose this villa as I have a baby who is prone to mossy bites. Service was excellent with the Asst Manager helping us to get food outside at 11pm during a rainy night.

8.43 out of 10
based on 50 user reviews. When we first opened the gilded Balinese doors onto Villa Kalimaya III’s garden, we thought we’d come to the wrong place – surely it was too big to be only a three-bedroom villa?  The element of surprise was maintained throughout our visit, as we discovered not one but two living rooms as well as a separate dining room and a second dining area on the upstairs terrace – an extraordinary amount of space, especially in such a hip Seminyak hotspot.

This is a really well designed, well-furnished villa with a lot of extra details to ensure a comfortable, cossetted stay. With the large pool, jacuzzi and infra-red sauna to frolic in (plus four TVs and DVD players), there was plenty to keep us occupied without making use of the complimentary Canggu Club membership.  And when we did step beyond the villa walls, we were on the beach or in Seminyak’s best restaurants and boutiques within minutes.

This is the perfect place for a couple, three couples or a family of six who want to be sociable and yet still be able to get away from each other.  The cook, butlers and housekeepers – all charming and helpful – divide their time between this and the other three Kalimaya villas along the same quiet lane.  We considered this a bonus as it means guests benefit from a professional team, but privacy is not compromised by their continued presence – and it means that self-catering is a personal choice, not a prerequisite.
