“The place to stay if you want peace, friends, security, privacy, comfort and space!”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

From the time I first made contact with Amanda the owner, I knew everything will turn out well choosing to stay at Villa Kori. Then making contact with Ponk our driver, well, he added that something special to our first visit to Bali, including trips to places we would never find on our own for such reasonable prices. He was there waiting at the airport with a sign and a smile, taking us straight to the supermarket to buy food supplies and the best currency exchanges.
Then arriving at our villa was the biggest heart and smile for the our whole week's stay, Ketut our housekeeper, who would do anything for you willingly. Having someone there every morning to clean and maintain is something you'll never find staying somewhere in Australia. It was included in the cost of our villa too!
Having your own pool was so inviting, everytime you entered the door to your villa. The kitchen, which we seldom used, was well equipped even including the bottles of filtered water provided on tap. Just fill up your plastic empty bottles and you're right for the day.
At night, watch the enchanting geckos hover on the walls above the lounge searching for the odd mosquito, while enjoying the cool breeze of the fans.
Having three separate, lockable, bedrooms with airconditioning, cable TVs and bathrooms is a definite luxury not alot of accommodation places offer. Even though one of the bedrooms was leaking some rainwater from the guttering/ceiling during a deludge, Ketut was there rectifying the problem and suggesting shifting into the next bedroom. The four poster beds with mosquito nets were comfortable and large, frequently the quilt cover/sheets changing over the days. The main bedroom had a safe and bath as well as hot showers large enough to fit a couple of people. The other two bedrooms had their own bathrooms, with the large roomy showers. Ample towels and soaps being provided as well.
If you don't mind calling taxis or having a go at scootering to the main shopping streets, then this villa is perfect for you. What a shame this villa isn't located on the beach side of Sunset Road. We tried to walk to the other side a few times, but it proved to be either dangerous or a bit hazardous in parts, especially in the rain. Some of the roads were even flooded. Thank goodness there was cafe Batch just around the corner and a minimart for your daily supplies. Our taxis even had trouble finding our villa when returning back, so we just asked them to drop us off at the local Hotel Wolas and walked the rest of the way back. But when back in our very private villa behind lockable high gates and a front lockable door into our villa courtyard, you can view the front doors on the security TV inside.
Surrounding our villa are many gorgeous fragrant frangipani, hibiscus and even banana plants. Being situated next door to a house temple, we were able to hear the beautiful rhythms of Indonesian musical instruments and traditional incense burning.
We were very pleased overall with our first accommodation selection in Bali, especially considering we needed privacy and separate facilities. We have been left with very comfortable and peaceful memories thanks to the high level of accommodation standards staying at Villa Kori.

I arrived at the Bali airport at 2.10pm 24 Sept, but did not see any sign of the villa driver despite having pre-arranged an airport transfer on 10 Aug with villa owner's confirmation and sending sent my flight details way in advanced. My family and I waited for 40minutes. And I tried calling the numbers featured on their website, only to find out that the numbers are not in use! Frustrated, I had to make my own airport transfer to this villa.

The villa was located along some small alleys. When we arrived at the villa, we found the gate deeply locked, with nobody at the villa. We pressed the door bell, and shouted to alert the people inside, and even asked the neighbours but nobody responded!

Did I mentioned that my 65 yrs old elderly auntie was with me as well?

Concerned about my family safely, I had to resort to finding another accommodation within the short notice and spend another amount to make the booking for my family.

This dissatisfaction was in fact accumulated from past encounter with Villa's constant no replies despite several email chasers.

I dropped another email after everything happened, and received a reply from Villa owner on the next day (FINALLY!). Owner explained that she was on a 2 weeks holiday and left someone in charge, and seemed apologetic. In the end, villa owner gave me a full refund plus another 30% of the amount I paid for Villa Kori to make up for the additional last minute booking at another villa. However, till date, I have not received any explanation on how did the miscommunication occurred where booking was made 3 months ago, way before the owner's vacation. And also the unreachable contact number on the website.

To summarized, I was very disappointed with my encounter and experience with Villa Kori. Hence to future travellers, this post is written to provide a more balanced review.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I booked this villa based on previous reviews and had high hopes. Well l wasnt dispapointed. The villa was fantastic, modern, bright and clean. The furnishing were lovely and the pool was really clean, even had pool toys which my daughter loved.Kutut was fantastic. He came every monring to clean and was very discreet. He also made us a fantastic fruit platter each day. He was very good with our 3 year old as well. He also kept our fridge stocked with Bin Tang which my husband was very happy about. The distance from Kuta was $5 in a taxi and Seminyak Square was $1.20 in a cab. It was too far to walk but only a very short distance from the main road where you could pick up a cab in minutes. The Batch coffee shop 2 mins down the road did the best coffee and breakfast, its a must while you are there, we tried it on our second last day and were disapointed we didnt go there sooner. Overall a wonderful peaceful place to stay and l would highly recommend it.

Awesome stay! The villa has everything that you could ever ask for. Their kitchen is equipped with almost everything like at home. 1st room has a large bathroom, at one end there's a safety box for us to keep important stuffs. The depth of swimming pool is about 1.5m so it's perfect for us. Many thanks to Mr. Ketut, Manager of Villa Kori, who waited for us to check in quite late in the night. He's extremely helpful and friendly guy. Every morning at about 8.30am, Mr. Ketut will come over to do some cleaning of the villa. You can choose not to make up your room though.

An amazing Villa in an amazing country :-) Villa Kori is just outside the hustle and bustle of Seminyak but only a $2 taxi ride or a 20 minute walk into the beach.
Ketut , the house Manager was most helpful man you'll ever hope to meet. As is Ponk, who was our driver.
Villa Kori is fully self contained and absolute luxury!! Very comfy beds, ample linen and towels and Villa spotlessly serviced every day.
The only complaint I have is that our holiday (for 9 of us) just wasn't long enough.
Thank you Amanda :-) we are already discussing our next trip to Bali :-)
