Kavya's clever design encouraged us to divide our time equally between the various spaces on offer. It was as pleasant reclining on the wide sofa looking out over the lawn as it was lying on a sunbed by the pool, swinging in the hammock with a book, or retreating to the cool of the TV room to watch a movie. After enjoying our first delicious lunch so much, mealtimes became something to look forward to. The chef applied every one of his 15 years of resort and cruise ship experience to cook up a storm and with everything from local specialties to Italian and fusion food on the suggestion menu, it was as if Seminyak's best chefs had all been invited to make a guest appearance. Despite the slick, minimalist design we found Villa Kavya easily met our practical needs and families would certainly enjoy all the facilities on offer, as would a group of young hip urbanites on a party weekend. The wide, central lawn is large enough to throw a frisbee, have a picnic on or even pitch awnings for a garden party and when it rained briefly the aroma of cut grass evoked memories of bygone summers. The three on-site staff were discreet yet available, which left us free to choose our favourite places and diversions during the day, coming together at mealtimes around the square dining table. After dinner, appetites appeased, the TV addicts slipped off to the TV room, the rest of us happy to recline, chat and enjoy the balmy Balinese evening.

Highlights

The open-sided lounge and dining space allowed us to live the tropical life in supreme comfort, lazing in our beach wear with a good book or grazing on the chef's excellent creations (although it did get quite hot during the day with only a standing fan for breeze). When we needed a real cool down or felt like working off a few calories, the 17.5m fresh water pool was perfect for laps, and the addition of a generous kids pool makes this a great villa for family fun.

Surprises

Although very comfortable and private, the double bedroom in the annex has small windows along the top of the walls that let light in and caused an unintended early rise.

We loved our stay at Villa Kavya. The staff were extremely kind, efficient and helpful. Not to mention the amazing food they prepared for us.
It is in a great location if you are wanting peace and quiet but like to be able to easily access the hustle and bustle of Seminyak.
We will definitely recommend Villa Kavya to others and hope to return in the future.

Villa Kavya exceeded our expectations and proved to be a perfect setting for a fabulous family holiday. The staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to ensure we were happy and enjoying our stay. With four young children, the large grassed area and pools were perfect for helping to burn up some excess energy and ensured they slept soundly each night.
