Villa Alice 1 couldn’t be better located if having a plethora of restaurants, shops and bars within easy reach are important considerations when picking your holiday villa. Aside from its fab location, Villa Alice 1 is also a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of the urban environment that surrounds it. There’s plenty of space for a family to spread out; a baby cot is available and an extra bed can be added into one of the bedrooms if necessary. The tropical garden is enclosed, the pool has a shallow section for little paddlers and a pool safety fence can be erected on request.

Couples will also find this villa much to their liking – although the staff are friendly and very helpful, they did leave us to our own devices for much of the time so it felt very private. Since their working hours are from 8am until 4pm every day, we liked having the house to ourselves in the evening too. An American breakfast is cooked daily, and if you wish to pick a dish or two from one of the extensive take away menus they will help you to order lunch and dinner. Between the BaliEpicure fine dining menu and the Hallo Bali magazine of numerous restaurants and cuisines there’s loads to choose from. We picked dishes from Lemongrass – a Thai restaurant – and they weren’t bad at all. You can also arrange for a cook to come to the villa for a fee. Otherwise, just head out and enjoy the amazing restaurants on your doorstep.

Highlights

The villa’s location within trendy Seminyak is a big part of its appeal, especially as the pervading feeling of peacefulness and privacy inside the villa isn’t what you’d expect from a busy residential area such as this. We also loved the sunken tubs and rain showers in the bathrooms fringed by tropical plants.

Surprises

Being residential means you can expect a certain amount of ambient noise – the odd motorbike or radio and (throughout Seminyak) planes overhead. The villa is well off the main road though and was surprisingly quiet during the day. We did hear Katy Perry (or at least her songs) blaring out from a neighbouring villa early evening, but by nine ‘o’ clock it was quiet, and the staff did say that the noise was very unusual.
