This is a fantastic villa centrally located but offering a quiet calm environment for your stay. We enjoyed being able to walk easily to shops, bars and restaurants and having the totally privacy within the villa grounds. We were welcomed at the airport and chauffeured to the villa which gave a stress free arrival, this was ideal as we had travelled from the Uk so had had a long trip. We booked breakfast and massages, thank you Janmaree for organising all of this it really was so nice to be very well looked after! We are planning our return visit later this year so we hope to see you all again soon! x
Seminyak conjures up many visions for its visitors - shopping, yoga, massages, restaurants, noisy, relentless traffic and traffic jams, loud music, sunset beach bars, late night drinking... well you can have access to all of this whilst staying in a tranquil, exquisitely beautiful villa a short walk away along a quiet lane, flanked by rice fields.
We each had our own kingsize bedroom with ensuite, immaculately decorated, fully aircon if you want, and the outdoor lounge area and pool were stunning. We found it hard to leave the villa to be honest, everything was just so perfect there.
The gardens were perfectly kept, tended daily by the visiting staff.
The pool also was regularly checked and cleaned, and we all loved cooling off morning, noon and night.
And hardly a mosquito in sight, yay!
We had breakfast prepared/cooked for us most days by the staff, a fantastic lazy start to the day.
Wayan and his 'Sexy Tours' vehicle met us at the airport, and was a great driver for the days I needed to work,
Thank you Wayan and all your wonderful team for helping us so with our stay. You made it very special.
Had a wonderful holiday at Villa 888 Eat, Play, Shop. It is a lovely quiet villa just a short walk down a narrow gang from a host of restaurants and bars. The villa is clean and well maintained. The pool is a nice size, probably larger than it appears in the photos. The staff are lovely, always happy to help but quiet and unobtrusive. The beds are large and very comfortable. Each room has a safe and the much needed air conditioning. Everything was in good working order. The staff were happy to stock the fridge with any requests and all at very reasonable prices.
We really enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend the villa.
Villa 888 Eat Shop Play is so beautiful. It's located down a lovely little gang and nestled between 2 other villas owned by Villa 888 making it ideal if you are on holidays with other families, which we were. Our friends were staying in Villa 888 Dua right next door and that also was amazing. We also had a look at the other villa, Watermark, and that too was beautiful.
The 3 bedrooms all had their own ensuite and had the most comfortable beds I have ever had in Bali. The villa was beautifully furnished with open plan living looking out over the fishpond (with fish and turtles) over to the pool.
The pool was a beautiful temperature and maintained daily so it was always clean.
The Villa 888 "Angels" came in each morning to clean and if you were still at the villa you would not know they were there. They were so quiet and unobtrusive. They were all so lovely and we took some toys and clothes to leave for them and they were so appreciative.
The villa is about 100m from the main street, sometimes called Eat Street/Oberoi St/Jalan Laksmana. Here you will find heaps of wonderful shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants.
The villa had a guide to the restaurants in the area and which are recommended. We really enjoyed Ginger Moon, Ultimo, Café Bali and La Favela and just a couple of dollars ride away were Biku, La Luciola, Mano (for sunset drinks), Warung Kultur and for a really cheap eat, Warung Luhron.
The wifi is excellent in the villa and super fast. There was even a basket of little trinklets that you could buy for a couple of dollars if you needed to take home some last minute presents.
The fridge was stocked with beer, softdrinks and icecreams and they were only about 20c more than the shops so who would bother lugging a pile of drinks home from the supermarket when you can use the cheap ones in the villa.
I can highly recommend this villa whether you are travelling as a couple, with friends or family.
Villa 888 have 5 villas in total and all of them are beautiful but this one was certainly my favourite.
Staff are so welcoming & warm. The cleanliness & quality of the villa was ace!! Relaxed from Day 1 wonderful Xmas touches at the villa too. Felt very safe & at home. Wayan & Sexy Tours were brilliant too!!!!
