We are regular visiters to Bali and love to mix it up a bit. We have stayed in Resorts in Kuta / Legian and other Villa's in Seminyak. All that we have stayed at are great depending on our needs and desires each year. This year we chose to stay somewhere different and contacted "The Lane Villa" Seminyak. From the minute i made the inquiry through Trip Advisor and Flipkey, Joe ( The Owner ) was extremely helpful. The reason we contacted Joe was due to the size and magnificent looking layout of the property as we needed the room as we enticed some friends and family to join us for there 1st visit to Bali. Total of 9 pax, 5 Adults and 4 Children ageing from 5 - 11. Joe explained payment details, We paid 30% deposit and the Balance $$$Aus when we arrived, and all we need do was what for the day to come. Airport tranfers arranged, 2 Complimentary Vans sent to pick us up. "Thanks Putu" he's a cool dude, friendly and very accomadating.It was a pity we didn't utilize him however for any day trips as i had already arranged a driver earlier. I think our kids would of preferred Putu. Lesson Learnt. The Villa it self is "Awesome" What you see in the photos is what you get and a bit more. I've forgotten to mention we took the 4 bedroom option ( Fully Contained, Fridge, Bathroom, Small modern Kitchen, TV etc ), My Son just turned 18 a week earlier and this was a gift to him. You can opt for only the 3 rooms if need be. We arranged a chef cook us dinner 1 night for a total of 13 pax. You get to choose the menu and size of portions to please every one. This was a great night night and everyone was well feed and well Hydrated. The bedding, beds, very comfortable,the Bathrooms are magnificent, the rooms cleaned daily and turned down each evening Overall, " The Lane" villa is in a great location, 10 minute walk to the Beach and 5 minutes to many popular restaurants and main shopping strips, Seminyak Square 10 - 15 minutes away. Transport easy to get or even hire a Scoopy ( Motor Bike ) for easy access anywhere. Laundry available out the front of the lane to the left as well as a small Mini mart. Easy to find each day or evening after a great day out. Each day breakfast was provided at a time that that suits you, anything from different types of egg dishes, nasi goreng, mei goreng or just toast. Coffee offered daily. The ladies ( Komang & Ayu ) are great and also your housekeepers. A liitle shy however at times, but always smiling and pleasant. The large pool wasMagnificent and large enough for laps and or throwing a ball around. Deep end is over 6ft deep. Magnificent lighting around the pool and Villa each night. Pool clean and extremely refreshing day and night.. We look forward hopefully to visiting " THE LANE" villa again next year and would not hesitate to recommend staying to any of my Family & Friends. Joe & Ari are great hosts and only a phone call away if you need any help, advise or last minute requests. They should be proud of the the Beautiful villa and gardens they have created. AWESOME establishment and 'HAPPY DAYS" Kind Regards.
