This is my 6th trip to Bali, all in different villas.
I'd rank The Lane, right at the top. The villa is really lovely. Good sized pool and nicely landscaped/maintained gardens. Fantastic bathrooms in the main house.
Jonathan and Ari were really wonderful hosts. They were responsive and organised. The first night, the staff was on hand to welcome us. The next morning, Jonathan stopped by the house the first day and gave us some great travel tips.
After checking out and 9 hours in the airport (flights grounded due to volcanic activity), Jonathan and Ari were still kind enough to help us look for a place to stay near the airport that evening. Great hosts!
This time, our group was made up of 2 families - 7 people total. With the studio we had plenty of room.
Highly recommended! Thank you Jonathan and Ari!
I thoroughly recommend this place-just as pictured. Kinda loud aircon was the only issue...
The studio was the perfect place for us to decompress for a couple days from our 24hrs of travel from California. The studio is as pictured, very open, clean, comfortable and light. The bed is super comfy! The air conditioner cools the studio within minutes. The only issues we ran into were that the air conditioning fan was a bit loud and it has a bright light when it's on, which can be annoying if your a light sleeper. Nothing an eye mask and some ear plugs can't take care of, though. The WiFi was a bit slow but worked and the hot water didn't last more than a minute but it's so warm it didn't matter to us. The studio is perfectly located, especially if you only have a day to get a feel for Seminyak and the beach there. Off on a little side street off the major road to the beach, it was quiet and provided a real local feel. Just a short 15 to 20 min walk takes you directly to the beach right where there are plenty of funky beach bars to hang at.
Jonathan's staff was incredible responsive and helpful. Ari organized a pick up from the airport with very little notice and their driver, Putu, graciously waited over two hours while our plane unexpectedly had to do circles before landing. He also knows the area very well and was able to avoid most of the traffic. Meiki met us within minutes of our arrival and gave us all the directions for using the studio and for getting around the area. She uses WATSAPP so it was a simple thing to get in touch using the wifi if we needed anything. The booklet provided gave great restaurant and activities information and was a nice touch. The safe provided gave us piece of mind as well. Thanks for a stress free stay in seminyak!
Staying at the Lane was a perfect start to my Bali trip. With good instructions it was easy to find late at night in the dark. The room was very spacious and had a real boutique feel to it. It was centrally located and the staff were very friendly and accommodating attending to any questions I had. Great value for money with personal touches. Would come stay again and would definitely recommend. Thank you Joe and your team :)
We stayed 2 nights at the studio. It's located in a very quiet and nice neighborhood yet close enough to walk to the retail shops and restaurants! The room is spacious, bright and fresh looking. Our only complaint is that the hot water was inconsistent throughout out our stay and it only lasted for 2-3 minutes until it turned cold. It's not a big deal since it's in Bali anyways!
The host canceled this reservation 38 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Jonathan is a very gracious host and I very much appreciated his recommendations and logistical help during my stay. The studio is a very nice and well designed space, full of light. I did not however feel like I was outside, since all the light comes from narrow windows at the base of the roof which let you see a slice of the sky and treetops but there is no eye-level window or patio door to let you see any garden or views of the outside.
Leider keine gute Erfahrung: Wir waren eine ganze Woche ohne warmes Wasser, WiFi funktionierte nur ganz selten richtig und die Küchenutensilien waren schmutzig. Hinzu kam ein uneinsichtiger Host, welcher trotz mehrmaligem Entgegenkommen unsererseits stur blieb und uns am Ende unfreundlich verabschiedete. Schade, das Studio selbst wäre eigentlich ein Traum...
Aptly located ...far enough from the night clubs to get a good night sleep... close enough to reach them & beach in under 2 / 5 min on bike ... room is super luxurious ..looks exactly the same as in the pics...
Getting in contact with Joe was very uncomplicated and nice! Although I didn't have the chance to meet him personally, I hope he and his family enjoyed staying in my place :)
