Very nice place. Philippe was brilliant, any email and queries were answered within minutes.
There are two cleaning ladies, a general manager called Bambang and security guards. they will help with anything like I locked my safe in, flush got stuck, run out of fresh water etc.
The pool is nice and kids enjoyed themselves.
There is also a functioning pool table which I used a lot.
The rooms are nice and furnished to a good standard. The bathrooms are large.
Nearby there is a large supermarket, lots of taxis nearby and Jalan Raya Seminyak is within walking distance. There is also a Brasco factory outlet shopping, a Krishna Bali souvenir store nearby.
There is also a Carrefour supermarket within 5 minutes taxi.
A McDonalds also within walking distance.
We ate a lot of nasi padang while we were there, there are many shops nearby.
Don't be put off by the slightly rough busy main road just outside the villa. All as above can be explored by foot.
All in all a good experience and i would recommend it.
We had a great time in Semyniak. Unfortunately at the last minute we were scheduled to another house, Philippe told us it was due to water treatment issues in the house but actually it turned out to be due to an overbooking (according to our new hosts told us). Most Villa rental offers in Bali are managed as efficiently/aggressively as hotels are, don't expect a confidential family owned business experience. We don't consider this as a misadventure though, besides Philippe was helpful and flexible and the new house was as great as our high expectations, the hosts were very welcoming. Check out their villas at Balicosy on the Internet. Special thanks to Aldi, Alexandre and his wife!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Antara is a lovely cosy villa situated in a quiet neighbourhood 8 mins walk away from the bustle of the main Jalan Raya Seminyak. There is a mini mart about 5 mins walk away. Convenient! We had some issues with transport on the last day, but Philippe was only a phone call away, and really accommodating. Bang Bang, the villa manager also went out of his way to help. Unlike other villas I was grateful for the insect repellent and sunscreen provided - things I always forget to bring! The villa is missing some wine glasses but that was no biggie ;) Overall Antara was a lovely villa and we shall be back! Merci Philippe.
Response from Philippe:
Thanks Shi, i promise you that next time i will provide you win glasses AND a bottle of wine ;-)
We stayed in the 4 bedroom Antara Villa which was just perfect for us. The rooms (which aren't pictured) are amazing and huge! And each one has its own bathroom so is easy for couples/friends etc. The pool and pool area is amazing and the cabana/day bed was just heavenly to lie around on! Great location of the vila, can easily walk into seminyak and lovely local market (with amazing food!) 100m away too. Although I didn't get to meet Philippe, he was so lovely to deal with and answered all of my many questions very quickly. The staff at the villa are incredibly friendly and warm and nothing is too much trouble. The service was impeccable, the vila even better than the pictures - I couldn't recommend it more highly!
Antara Villa - a wonderful space with a great pool in the perfect location! A 5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants on Jalan Legian and a quick taxi ride to the likes of Ku De Ta for great sunsets and Potato Head Beach Club; both have amazing food and cocktails! There are also some local places nearby to sample traditional Indonesian cuisine and see how the locals live.
We didn´t meet Philippe but the staff were extremely friendly and Wayan who picked us up from the airport offered (for a fee) to drive us around the island so we could see the sites. He is extremely knowledgable about all areas of Bali and speaks great english - so anything you would like to see or do he can help with that! Would definitely come back!
Me and my friend Sandra had a great time at Antara Villas, the pool was especially good after a hot day :)
Philippe and his staff were very accommodating, we even got to visit the villa before booking it. We took advantage of both the laundry and the food service. (Just one evening when we didn’t feel like going out to a restaurant)
Taxi to some really good restaurants were only 10-15K Rp.
Philippe's villa is a great place to stay in Seminyak, walking distance to all the action while still being removed enough to feel relaxed and it's nice and quiet. I didn't get a chance to meet Philippe personally but all of his staff were very helpful and friendly. The villa is great value, clean and very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.
We had the best stay at the Villa Antara. It was so well kept, the service was amazing right from the pick up at the airport. The villa was immaaculate, the pool table was a nice touch, and this was one of the nicest places i've stayed in Bali.
Only a short walk to the beach and the shops, and nice and quiet at night too.
Cant wait to come back!
