If you’re looking for a villa in Seminyak, chances are you’re hoping to find one that’s got a great central location within strolling distance of a choice of restaurants, shops and bars. Villa Alice 2’s situation just a two-minute walk to Jalan Laksmana (aka Eat Street) and ten-minutes from Seminyak’s popular swathe of beaches will not disappoint. Very handily, its two bedrooms are equally sized making it suitable for families, couples and friends alike looking for a private place to stay in the heart of Seminyak.

We liked that having the living and sleeping areas divided across the tropical garden meant that in the evening, anyone retiring early will hear little noise from the lounge. The fact that the garden is enclosed and that the swimming pool has a shallow paddler-friendly section makes the villa especially suitable for families looking for a central base. A pool safety fence can be erected on request and baby cots are available. Each bedroom came with its own TV and DVD player (bedroom 1 also has cable) so that individual guests can escape and movie watch as they like.

We found the staff to be friendly and very helpful, and they left us to our own devices for much of the time. Since their working hours are from 8am until 4pm every day, we liked having the house to ourselves in the evening too; this arrangement works well for privacy-seeking couples. 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 (which we recommend) and the Hallo Bali magazine of numerous restaurants and cuisines there’s loads to choose from. 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.

Great location, central and in easy reach to restaurants and bars but still very private and quiet. Friendly and discreet staff with a Can-Do attitiude.
