  • I stayed at Benjamin's Ruku Ruku villa for 6 nights. I wish I could have stayed longer!

    Firstly, Benjamin was quick to reply to my request on availability. I was easily able to arrange a pickup with him/Dolla at my previous location (another villa further south in Seminyak).

    The villa itself was as pictured - spacious, 2 bedroom etc etc. The pool was great - not too warm, not too cool and just nice for all day/night use. One bedroom has the tub, one bedroom has the shower. The central kitchen/living area is nicely laid out and has a couple great ceiling fans that make it entirely liveable all day. Wayan was in each day for cleaning. The pool guy was in every couple days to make sure all was right with the pool. The location itself is great for being off the main road and relatively quiet yet still convenient for everything. There is a great pizza place back and north on the main road about 500 feet away. You can walk to Degan and Metis in about 8 minutes.

    I would absolutely return. I am already missing my daily massages you can order in for about 10 bucks.

  • We had the most amazing stay at Benjamin's Villa Ruku Ruku! The villa itself is beautiful in every way. Even though it rained two days during our stay, we lounged in the day bed, plugged in our iPhones to the speakers and listened to the music and the rain, even went swimming when it rained! The other days the weather was great and we laid out, swam, the view over the rice field is beautiful too. The bed was really comfortable and we watched a few of the movies at the villa too. Dolla and Benjamin were super helpful in arranging a massage for me at the villa and recommending a driver for a 10-hour tour of Ubud--definitely a highlight. The maid Wayan also was so sweet. She cleaned the villa each morning and made us breakfast (we paid for groceries though!). She also took our dirty clothes to get washed and brought them back for us. All in all, it was an unforgettable stay and we would definitely return back to this villa...definitely recommend it to anyone!

  • Villa is just as pictured. I absolutely loved the pool and the wooden window opening to an amazing view of paddy field. There was so many relaxation area in the villa (the bean bags, the outdoor dining area, etc). The villa is located in a peaceful area with a great view. Very near to Seminyak area but at the same time far enough from the hustle and bustle of it. Benjamin and Dolla were amazing and extremely helpful. They addressed all the concerns I had. The villa was well equipped, clean and extremely nice. Full kitchen inside complete with full utensils and glasswares. The wifi connection was very good by Bali's standard. The bed was very comfortable and the bedsheet was extremely luxurious. All in all great experience!

  • Great little two-bedroom villa in Seminyak. From original reservation to pick-up at airport and throughout our stay, prompt and super service. We are now sold on "the private villa" concept, and if/when back In Bali will look for Benjamin's properties again. Thanks for a great stay.

  • My friends and I absolutely fell in love with Villa Ruku Ruku. The location is great, the villa itself is beautifully decorated and the booking process couldn't have gone better. We only stayed for 2 nights but we wish we could have stayed for a whole week.

    Thanks Benjamin for an incredible stay, we can't wait to come back.

  • The booking was smooth throughout - Benjamin helped a lot from making sure that we were picked up on time, to us taken care until we checked out.

    Villa ruku ruku was amazing! It looks exactly as showed in the pictures! The heated pool is also difficult to resist - esp on a super hot weather! Wayan was such a sweetheart! She'll buy you your groceries and cook it as well! Helped us a lot with our laundry too - for less than 10k rupiah we got about 8 shirts ironed.

    The location of the villa was great if you wanted the best of both worlds - serenity as well as just being a short drive from Seminyak. Love it!! Thanks Benjamin!

    Tip: If you hail a cab from the main road to go to Seminyak shouldn't cost you more than 10/15k rupiah - we got ripped off for 50k on the first day because we were desperate!

  • This place was wonderful - we didnt meet Benjamin but Wayan the housekeeper was a star who made us fabulous breakfasts every day and was ther to meet us for check in. The villa is about a 30 minute walk to seminyak but getting a cab is easy and only 25000rps. The pics of the villa dont lie with a fabulous pool off the three main rooms. A great way to end our stay in Bali and we would definetly look to rebook in the future. The in house massages also come highly recommended.

  • Our stay here was fantastic! Benjamin is very helpfull weeks before our arrival and during our stay. Even provided us with an ironing board when I requested. Benjamin giving us tips and advice, very good! The villa is very sweet, clean with traditional touch and modern. The in-house massage was great. I will for sure stay here again or even stay at Benjamin's other villas. The only bad thing is when our stay has finished, time passed so quick. Thank you Benjamin! :-)

  • Consiglio vivamente di soggiornare qui!
    Innanzitutto la posizione è splendida: vicino al centro di Seminyak senza rinunciare alla privacy e alla quiete.
    Ogni piccolo problema tecnico legato alla casa e alla piscina è stato risolto con assoluta tempestività, vi garantisco cosa molto rara in Bali
    Il servizio del personale impeccabile: Wayan, la governante, si fa veramente in quattro pe soddisfare ogni tuo desiderio.
    Un grazie a Benjamin e a Made per simpatia e l'amicizia dimostrata.
