We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Sirena. Booked through Air BnB. Discounted price for 2 nights in between other peoples bookings, although there was a cleaning and service charge on top. Booking process was wholly online and I was surprised that the villa manager wanted to charge extra “cleaning charge” for my partner to stay too ( I mistakenly did not state 2 people in booking process). However I disputed this and we were not charged extra.
Upstairs there there is a balcony area and adjoining 2 bedrooms with king beds, televisions, excellent A/C and personal ensuites. We got to choose which bedroom we wanted, and they locked off the other. One ensuite has a bath tub and shower, the other has big double shower. We chose the double shower, with rain shower head and regular shower head. Double basins too.
Downstairs area consisted of open plan kitchen, dining, lounge area and semi divided tv room, overlooking the triangle shaped pool and deck. Off of this area there is another open bathroom with outdoor shower.
The pool area was lovely with beautiful plants around the pool deck, and another outdoor shower hidden next to the pool. Pool floor and walls were textured with rough sandstone, so care must be taken not to scratch your feet. Pool lights also added to the ambience.
The Villa manager arranged our transport at an extra cost, from the airport. We had trouble finding our driver ( he was apparently stuck in a traffic jam), but we eventually found him and commenced our drive to the villa. The van did smell like cigarettes though.
We ordered our breakfast cooked each morning at (US $7 day each)and this was prepared by the lovely Agung and Gusman. The breakfast was amazing. Cleanliness and service was fantastic.
Our only concerns-although minimal, were *some uneven pool decking.
*private pool area had houses overlooking it -although mostly hidden by tall bamboo foliage.
*Old (?) construction site over the fence needs demolishing, its an eyesore
*Driver was not at airport in time (as stated above), and car smelt bad.
* Security staff were asked to specifically order a Blue Bird taxi for us one evening, and a non-Blue Bird - “no meter” taxi arrived and overcharged us for a small trip at night time.
* floating stair case with no hand or side railing could pose a danger.
Pleasantly surprised by this little hideaway located a few minutes from Kuta beach. Once you step inside it feels like a mix between island locale and modern furnishings. It is very open and we were worried about the openness, especially with the rain, but we stayed dry and it felt fresh. No need for windows or doors. Everything was as the pictures appeared, enhanced by the friendly staff, especially Agung and Gusman. Agung met our every need and we looked forward to her delicious breakfasts every morning. Can't say enough about how helpful she was in every way. From taxis to tours to addressing needs within the house (laundry/bedrooms). Gusman, her assistant, was very friendly and a pleasure to be around. Would definitely come back just to have them take care of us.
My husband, myself and 13 year old daughter stayed in this amazing villa for 12 days. On arrival we were greeted by the very friendly and welcoming Agung and Gusman. These wonderful staff members continued to give amazing service throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble for them. The villa had a wonderful open plan downstairs and the upstairs bedrooms are spacious with lots of storage. The ensuite bathrooms are very impressive-5 stars. We had breakfast cooked for us each morning which was delicious. We felt very pampered. Thank you Agung and Gusman for ensuring our stay at La Sirena 4 was unforgettable.
We were staying as 2 couples at the villa. It is conveniently located and only a few minutes to the beach and about 10 min to Seminyak Square. We had a delicious breakfast prepared by Anu every morning. The only problem was that there was not a big variety to choose from, so if you stay there longer than just a few days you might want more varieties.
The villa has two seperate bedroom with their own bathroom facilities on the second level. These rooms are airconditioned and spacious and one of the bathrooms had a twin shower. The living area downstairs is open, so there is no aircon possible and it can get a bit warm. But there is a nice sized private pool to cool you down. There is a third bathroom and an open shower at the ground level.
The kitchen is big with microwave, hotplate and a big fridge, so one could cook their own meals if wanted. A convenient shop is located very close by.
The only problem we had was a foul smell every now and then wafting through the open unit but I think that came from outside the unit and was not the owners fault.
We stayed here late Jan for two weeks, it was the best decision we had made.
I have been to bali many times and this was my first time staying in a Villa and in Seminyak. It will not be my last.
The staff from the first moment we arrived to our last few minutes were so friendly and made sure ever request we had they completed.
We got breakfast most mornings in our villa and it was the best breakfast I have ever had in Bali.
The villa it's self was amazing, the private pool was fantastic which they kept very clean. There was three separate bathroom and an extra shower near the pool. The two bedrooms where up stairs and each with its own bathroom and safe. In the lounge room and both bedrooms there was a TV, DVD player and iPod Dock which came in handy when we it was time for a swim.
The Villa was a two minute walk to the beach and a ten minute walk to the Seminyak markets.
I know that we will be back to stay.
