The space

Villa Orchid offers the opportunity to experience a more traditional style Bali in total privacy within the heart of Petitenget, Seminyak.

We stand out with our traditional Balinese architecture whilst still offering our guests all the privacy and modern amenities you would come to expect from a Balinese villa.

Located in the newly hot Petitenget area, our Villa sits discretely within its own secure, high walled garden. which is accessed by a private entrance to ensure complete privacy. Just far enough away from the hustle & bustle of Seminyak to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep, yet still close to all of Seminyak's hot-spots - and the beach is but a 5 min ride away.

Enjoy a mix of outdoor relaxation around your own private pool & outdoor shower. Choose to simply laze indoors in air-conditioned comfort or cook up a pleasing meal within our fully equipped kitchen.

Whether you are seeking your own personal "Eat Pray Love" moment or a couples retreat, we have everything you could need and more..

Interaction with guests

Wayan and his wife will greet you at check-in with a cool drink and help get you settled in. You will be given a set of keys for the villa and rooms.

After that, you can enjoy complete privacy at all times during their stay unless you need something.

Staff are located just outside the gate to assist with checking in, cleaning & maintenance whenever necessary. Wayan will try to set a cleaning schedule convenient for you, so just let him know.

The neighborhood

The villa is perfectly situated within the heart of Petitenget. Its not too far from everything and its also just far enough away from everything to enjoy some peace and quiet. The beach is nearby and many great local shops and cafes are within walking distance, as is a supermarket.

We love that its one of the more idyllic spots in Bali.

Getting around

Whether you taxi or rent a scooter - eating, shopping and beach are all no more than 1-5 minutes away. For those wanting the exercise, a 15-20 minute walk will get you to the same great places. A supermarket, convenience store and a handful of great restaurants are literally at the end of our driveway. Consult the books in each room for menus and directions... or ask Wayan, who is nearly always on site !

Expect an Airbnb, not a hotel or resort. Orchid Villa is our private second home away from home (though our belongings are not on-site during your stay), and in the traditional Balinese style - no marble & concrete jungle ! It is very private and very comfortable.

We hope guests will treat our villa as their second home as well, and likewise care for everything in the villa as such. If you break something fix it or replace it.

No smoking indoors

Relax, enjoy and leave your stress on the plane. Bali is slow paced, inefficient and behind the times - it's exactly why we love it here ! We hope you do too.

This location is perfect. Very close to everything you need, and very quite. The host was quick to respond to the issues with the property that occurred during my stay, and there is a on-site caretaker. However, it is an older villa, and could use a little TLC to make it a really special place to stay. At this time I can not recommend staying at this location due to the mosquito problem. I was in the unit for a full month. I sprayed myself, the landscaping was cut back, and there was even an electric deterrent. Still they came. There is nothing worse than hearing a mosquito buzzing in your ear when you are trying to rest, or seeing them land on your arms and legs while you are trying to relax. Then the itching starts along with the red lump There were so many I could not get away from them ... This made my stay here very unpleasant.

Response from Lauren:
Yes timing is everything when it comes to mosquitoes and Bali. We were right beside you during your 8 days and marveled at the LACK of mosquitoes. So they must've all been next door ; ) Following the rains mosquitoes multiply and sorry you had to experience that during your stay. Generally we are no better or worse than other places when it comes to these pesky insects, but a good repellent always keeps them away for us when they're unavoidable.

I stayed at YAK orchid for 10 days along with two friends. The villa has a perfect location that gives you the opportunity to explore the beauty of Bali! Lauren was so nice and helped us with a driver and other activities. Every time you enter the villa its clean and neat, due to Warran! A very nice guy as well. Definitely recommend this place!!

We had a pleasant stay at the Orchid villa. The villa was very comfortable. Wayan & his wife were very helpful and We were especially thrilled to know that the villa was tidied up everyday. However The villa was older than what the pictures portrayed. Nevertheless the location was good & accessible to the many places like seminyak square. There are many nice & reasonably priced restaurants near the villa & a nice spa within 5 mins walk. Wifi speed can be much improved. We could Only use the Internet for as the Internet was too slow for other usage. We needed to get a SIM card instead for faster internet use. There were also mosquitoes which is a pity as we did not venture out of e room too much as my wife is pregnant. Overall, it was a good rest at the villa.

Response from Lauren:
Thanks for staying with us Hector ! Wayan raved about your kindness... As we clearly advertise, Orchid is in the traditional style with antique real teak furniture, conical thatched roof with ornate interior design and stones/statuary from an actual defunct Hindu temple. There is a purpose and design to the "old" feel and what we prefer - so much we live here part of the year ! Unfortunately there is only sim card based wifi service in our area and the downsides are obvious (constant refills & slow speed). Eventually the hard lines will reach us and we will be able to tap in. As for mosquitoes, well it is Bali... We've yet to find a place without them, but the rooms are equipped with electric repellent discs, spray and large nets surrounding the beds. Sorry and we hope it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. Please come back and stay anytime.

The villa was impressive as described! We had a small child with us so it was great that Lauren arranged for us to have a pool fence. The area was fairly quiet and next to many great restaurants. The place was kept clean by the staff and overall no complaints about the villa.

Nice, quiet appartment, perfectly situated at the boarder between city, beach and nature. Appartment was clean and Wayan and his family were friendly, helpfull and did their job very well. Sadly lots of mosquitos. The kitchen contains everything to make a small snack, but doesn't invite you to cook dinner. This was never a problem, there are plenty of restaurants around. Outdoor shower and outdoor lovingroom are great.

My wife and I stayed at Lauren's place for the first two nights of our vacation, and it was perfect! Our goal was to get out of the rush of the Kuta Beach crowd ( these days I save my beer pong skills for special occasions..), but still be in walking distance to some nice restaurants, the beach, etc. It fit our needs perfectly, and Lauren scheduled a driver to pick us up at the airport- a really easy and relaxed way to kick off our holiday. We'll be back- thank you, Lauren!

I'm living in Korea but wishing I was in Bali.
I've been importing Balinese home deco and candles for 5 years and visit Bali 4-5 times per year. Someday I will move to Bali. We love our villa and hope you will too.
Thanks. Lauren
