If you’re looking for a really central base in Seminyak, there are few villas better located than Villa Lilibel. Not only can you walk to the beach and a host of restaurants from here, but the villa is also well laid out, well staffed and brilliantly sized. Living areas are huge and very sociable, yet you can also find corners for peace and privacy if you so desire. The master bedroom was much larger than the other bedrooms and its bathroom easily the most decadent. We thought the other ensuites were perhaps a little dated and not so well lit.

And much as we might frown upon such unsocial holiday behaviour, this villa is a TV addict’s dream, with TVs in the main living room, media room (plus sets in all of the six bedrooms) - The three bedrooms off the villa’s entrance courtyard were the quietest and the ground floor rooms would be good for sleeping kids and elderly rellies. We liked the different dining options at the villa: the barbecue terrace is a very sociable venue for long balmy evenings spent dining, wining and chatting. The staff proudly told us that Villa Lilibel’s barbecued pork ribs are a bit of an institution. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to try them on this visit!

There’s a reasonably priced menu at Lilibel and a choice of breakfast is included in the rate. The chances are that with so many great restaurants on your doorstep you’ll be eating out much of the time too. The staff were friendly and attentive; there was always someone around when we needed them and they were quick in preparing our meals and drinks. We were impressed with the kitchen too as it was so well-equipped. Keen cooks would be happy here, and all of the provisioning can be left to the staff.

Highlights

We loved the villa’s convivial space and layout - in particular, the cushioned garden balé where we could recline in comfort and gaze back over the handsome villa. We also loved the impressively long (16m) pool - its sunken ‘lounge’ at the far end made it a great spot for swimming, soaking, sunning and socializing all at the same time. Lilibel’s location in the heart of Seminyak is fab and it only took us five minutes to stroll to the beach at Petitenget where we watched the sun go down from our table on the terrace at La Lucciola, cocktail in hand, raising a toast to beautiful Bali!

Surprises

For a relatively urban location, one nice surprise was just how quiet the villa was (we even heard chickens from the piece of land next door) but nevertheless, a certain amount of ambient noise should be expected. The villa could have done with a few more sun beds as there were only four on display during our visit (the house sleeps ten), but since much of the garden was laid to lawn, you could just throw down a towel and tan there.

What can I say .... AMAZING. We came from another amazing Villa in Canggu, thinking Villa Lilibel would not be quite as nice, well it was 100% better. I read in another review that the pictures do not do this Villa justice and I have to agree. There was a group of 6 couples and we could not pick our mouths up of the floor from the moment we walked through the gates to the tour we were given of Villa Lilibel. Not only was the Villa and all the 'many' rooms/areas out of this world, but the staff made our short holiday a very memorable one that all of us continually say 'how wonderful it was'. If you are looking for a STUNNING Villa with lots of SPACE in a fantastic LOCATION do not look any further. Two minutes away from the entrance of Ku De Ta, which takes you straight onto the beach. I truly cannot speak highly enough of the staff that looked after us with EVERYTHING we needed. THANK YOU THANK YOU and cannot wait until we return. :)

I was very happy when I walked in to Villa Lilibel - I knew immediately I had made a good choice. The villa was beautiful and far more spacious than it looked in the website photographs. Great location. The staff were ever so obliging and helpful in coordinating everything we needed. I'm now planning my next trip to go back.

As a large group we all loved Villa Lilibel. The photos online don't do it justice, It is actually much better than it looks! From the moment we arrived we all felt very relaxed. The two small children in our group were very well accommodated during our stay and your staff made them feel extremely welcome. The location of the Lilibel is fantastic and we loved the fact that the driveway/laneway leading up to the villa is so very well lit and safe to walk in at any time of day and night. Thank you for making our 2015 trip to Bali very memorable.

We stayed at Villa Lilibel as a group of 12 good friends and a toddler. From making reservation online to arrival to the villa, we were pleasantly surprise by the high level of service provided by the staff. All of us enjoyed the 16m pool very much, and we managed to hang around in the living room almost everynight watching the huge tv. The villa is perfect for big family or a big group of friends. The staff are very attentive, and helpful. We could not be happier for choosing to spend 4 days at Villa Lilibel.

This is a lovely place for a family getaway. The villa is beautiful, spacious and clean and the staff were all extremely friendly and attentive. The location is perfect, 5 mins walk from Seminyak Square but yet it's quiet and peaceful inside the villa. Had a wonderful stay and will definitely recommend it to everyone.

We really enjoyed our holiday in villa Lilibel this time. The environment and facility are great for family gathering, and kids friendly as well. The BBQ dinner we had for the CNY eve was very nice as well. The most amazing is the service and super friendly staff. They helped to arrange the meals, restaurants, massages, and transportation with great hospitality. We felt we were so well pampered by all the staff. Thank you everyone in villa Lilibel for bring us such a great time.

We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Lilibel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It is in a fantastic location, very central to everything and also located down a quiet laneway so still very private and secure. The staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble, they were so friendly and helpful and always had a smile on their face. The villa itself is beautiful, very spacious with plenty of areas to relax and unwind without being on top of one another. The photos on the website do not do this place justice - it's even better in real life! We would definitely stay here again.
