“A heart-filled, homely and well-cared-for villa between beach and rice fields.”

Villa Asmara is clearly a well-loved home with a lot of heart. We loved its warm energy and felt very comfortable there. We were impressed with the villa manager, Pak Nyoman, who leads the staff of five; his many years’ experience on Caribbean cruise ships is evident in his warm smile, professional manner and intuitive understanding of what makes guests happy. It’s our opinion that the Balinese-influence layout makes this a great villa for multi-generation family gatherings – the billiard table and out-of-the-way media room will appeal to young teens in particular (and these reviewers were not averse to snuggling up in front of satellite TV either). Yet Villa Asmara weaves its magic equally on much smaller groups; and as a couple we didn’t feel we were rattling around but instead enjoyed the air of intimacy that is not always present in villas of a similar size.

Favourite corners? The café table in the billiard room is just the place for early morning rice-view coffee, and curling up with a Kindle in the bedroom window seat made for a cool air-conditioned escape from the midday heat. While it was good to have our own veranda with leather seating overlooking the pool, we were happy to spend time in the breezy open living space, where the large sofas and romantic, heavily carved Chinese bed encouraged indolence. The gentle Balinese staff appears to have worked together for some time and nothing seems to faze them! And the cook showed her versatility by throwing together that breakfast classic, eggs Benedict, as proficiently as Asian favourites like tom yum soup and beef rendang.

Highlights

Asmara was quiet and serene, and as we could glimpse one or two villas through the trees, we felt secluded without being isolated. While there was plenty to occupy a family, we found it delightfully intimate for the two of us, and also loved being able to stroll down to the beach for the golden sunset.

Surprises

There may be some bedroom envy at Asmara, despite all four rooms being of a similar size: two of the bathrooms are shower only, while the upstairs bathroom has no garden). We only remark on the difference because the single pavilion bedroom has such a spacious bathroom (which is air-conditioned – wow!)

Villas Asmara has the charm that we look for when visiting Bali. It does not disappoint with regards to the character and the staff is excellent. It's not as lavish and spread out as some other "event" villas on the beach but it does offer a unique feel that will leave you wanting to come back to it.

Fantastic Villa - we stayed as an extended family group for a special Birthday. It worked really well having the living and outdoor areas shared so we could all gather around. Having separate bungalows for the bedrooms gave everyone their own space and privacy. The pool and gardens are lovely, rooms very clean and comfortable. Staff were very accommodating and were very happy to arrange a special birthday dinner and went to a lot of fuss with decorations etc which was a wonderfull surprise for me. Due to traffic conditions the drive into Seminyak takes at least 40 minutes but if you only want to go in occasionally then it does not present a problem. I would recommend the property without hesitation - suitable for couples or families - and would also love to return for another holiday to Villa Asmara.

This is a lovely villa and my family and I had a wonderful time here. The Villa and the grounds around it are lovely, large and airy. Allowing everyone to be together or have some private space to themselves if desired. The chef, Komma, is a angel in the kitchen and meal times were always a 5 star affair. The villa staff are friendly and polite and nothing is too much trouble. Set away from the hustle and bustle of "busy bali" its in a lovely quiet spot, nothing but the sound of the waves crashing onto shore to be heard. And the world famous sunsets over the ocean of Tannah Lot are yours to view from your own villa.
I can highly recommend Villa Asmara for a fabulous vacation.

Very well maintained villa in lovely surroundings. The pool was beautifully warm, the rooms very clean and bathrooms well equipped. With regards to the location an easy drive into Semanyak and most other places so not far away from anything. Beautiful staff who looked after us very well.
