Villa Senja is not a swanky hi-tech villa, but this is reflected in the price, which is especially good when you take into account the discounts that you are going to get on your golf rates. This is the original luxury Bali style; commonly found in villas and hotels that were built in the ‘90s.Things move fast in Bali, especially in the field of design, so the style looks a bit dated these days, and is sometimes referred to as ‘Bali for beginners’. Nevertheless, the architecture, thatched roofs, local stonework, interior design and furnishings remain both charming and very tropical. There are numerous benefits to being linked to the resort; apart from all the aforementioned facilities, there is an on-site generator (so you won’t get any of the power cuts, which are unfortunately rather common in Bali) and the water pressure in the showers is great (again, this is something that can sometimes be a bit hit and miss in Bali). The villa is a long way from the delicatessens of Seminyak (18km), so if you want meals created with gourmet ingredients you will need to let the staff know well in advance. Local specialties with fresh local ingredients are therefore the cook’s forte, and you can always enjoy fine dining at the resort.

Highlights

The location is perfect if you’re here for the golf, while the non-golfing members of your group will enjoy the fairway views and the option to use the facilities of the resort (charges are approximately US10 per person per day). We loved having use of the electric buggy, which is a fun and independent way to get around within the confines of the golf course (just don’t let your kids drive it!). The villa’s four bicycles are a bonus too.

Surprises

The televisions are a bit dated but there is one in every bedroom. At the time of our return visit, we noted that there was a construction site next door, this project is scheduled to be finished mid 2013, check with The Villa Guide at the time of booking

Villa Senja provides a well rounded accommodation package for families or for those looking for a group golf excursion: Tremendous value, solid accommodation & facilities, good bedroom layout, well informed staff, & access to additional facilities at the Nirwana Golf Resort. We enjoyed our own pool, but often walked to the resort for full pool days, a meal, & daily visit to resort's kids club; played golf, & ventured for beach, Waterboom Water Park, Butterfly Park, & sunset cocktails in Seminyak & Kuta area. With Bali traffic, it's about 30-40 min to Seminyak; and 1hr to Kuta.
