***** Reviewed September, 2015 NEW

Perfect house, directly on the sea, a sufficiently large pool, well-kept area, very friendly staff. Through the available driver short trips are not a problem in the place to shop. Even the cook settled on request errands. For trips, the vehicle is also available.

We would have liked to have stayed longer.

Traveller rating: "Perfect Place To Relax"


***** Reviewed August, 2015

The three of us had a wonderful time here in the villa.Everything was even better than expected. This place is perfect for an absolute relaxing stay at Bali. The staff is nice and very helpful. Especially Sinta, who cooked us several very good Indonesian dishes. Even the beach in front of the villa is “cleaner“ than in the neighbourhood. We are sorry that our 10 nights are at their end today.

***** Reviewed August, 2015


We had unforgettable nine days in the Sea Villa. The listing corresponds exactly with the facts and is a real gem. Sinta, our Angel spoiled us with fresh, Indonesian food that tasted just wonderful and organized everything we wanted. Kadek, the driver took us safe anywhere, not so easy with the Balinese style of driving. Angus, the gardeners took care of a fresh coconut and a beautiful garden with many flowers and clean pool. A villa to relax and enjoy that fulfils all wishes.

The villa is very comfortable, stylish and clean. It is beautifully situated directly on the sea and has a beautiful garden. The private pool has been actively used by us and all the well-tended sunbathing opportunities. The friendly staff, the rest really, a little paradise. the hostess was always available if we needed information. Very, very sincere thanks for the wonderful time we could enjoy.

We have just enjoyed and the advertisement and the detailed information have corresponded exactly to what we encountered.

Traveller rating: "Bali at its Best"

***** Reviewed July, 2015 

We had a really nice stay at Bali Sea Villas. You can experience Bali at its best at your own pace and without any tourist crowds.
At Bali Sea Villas you have everything you need and more. The staff will go out of their way for you to enjoy your holidays. Shopping, cooking, driving, information, all taken care of by excellent staff. They are there, but only when you need them, which is the catch on having staff in the house. Well done to all of them. Especially a warm thank you to Cinta and Kadek.
We could not set a finger on anything negative to comment for future traveller to consider, so you have our total recommendation.

Hubby and I both knew we wanted to take our 2 daughters (14 & 16) to the northern shores of Bali and I thought a resort would be the best option. As a 'resort' kind of girl I was more than dubious when himself showed me this property on TripAdvisor. "But it is NOT a resort and it looks WAAAY too good to be true!" I said- how wrong was I!!! Everything about BSV is outstanding- from the lovely interior and comfortable beds to the well maintained pool and gardens (there are plenty of deck chairs and little nooks where you can relax in and find your 'ZEN') not to mention the staff. Actually, I will comment on the lovely staff.........
Sinta- such a delightful lady who cooks us amazing meals. We have had lunch 'out' a few times now and we much prefer Sinta's delicious food.
Eka- a very polite and happy soul. Anyone who has been to Bali knows how scary the roads and traffic can be but we felt 100% safe with Eka behind the wheel.
Agus- such a smiley young man who looks after the beautiful pool and gardens (you should see how many flowers and butterflies there are here!)
Any questions that we had before we left Australia were promptly answered by by Jonathan.
This is definitely an A+ villa to stay at!
Terima Kasih

Traveller rating: "Peaceful, Perfection and Paradise"

***** Reviewed October, 2014

From the moment we arrived at Bali Sea Villas we were overwhelmed. The beautiful smiling faces of Sinta, Ketut and Agus standing at the gates to greet us was the first of many special memories we will take with us.
After a week spent in the hustle and bustle of Seminyak we were looking for somewhere peaceful to relax. We certainly found it. Our first word was breathtaking. Everything about B.S.V. Is amazing. The villa itself is so beautifully decorated in Balinese style and sparkling clean. The gardens and pool are also beautiful and kept in perfect condition. The sounds of the sea and the gorgeous view all add up to create the ideal place to relax. The staff are amazing. Our every need was looked after. Everything was done with a smile. Sinta cooked us many delicious meals and organised everything for us, massages, day trips, shopping and generally everything to make sure we had the best week of our lives. Sinta is so friendly yet discreet and we loved learning about her country,
Eka is the safest driver in Bali. He took us everywhere we wanted to go as well as picking us up from Seminyak and also taking us to the airport. The drive from the South to the North is enjoyable due to the beautiful scenery. We loved seeing the lakes, mountains, villages, temples, rice paddies and the tree lined roads as we travelled.
Thank you for having us B.S.V. We have so many beautiful memories and we hope to come back one day and create many more.


Traveller rating: "Magic"

***** Reviewed October, 2014

No words can explain the beauty and the hospitality of "Bali Sea Villas", it is really magic,
With our friends we stayed for the second time at Bali Sea Villas.
Also the second time we enjoyed our staying very much.
We loved to explore by motorbike and see the surroundings of the villa and when we came home we saw the big smile of Sinta and get a warm welcome of her. She likes to please the guests and make for them the most delicious lunches and diners. Sinta supports us with everything and makes our staying more comfortable then the house already is. The villa is very comfortable and has a magnificent view on the ocean. Also the trips with driver Ekka were very safe and comfortable. He is fully at your service and brings you wherever you like. Touristic or non-touristic

This holiday was unforgettable and we hope to come back

Traveller rating: "A Very Beautiful and Relaxing Stay"

***** Reviewed September, 2014

This was our second trip to Bali and it surpassed our first one. Away from the crowds and tourist bustle on the other side of the island. All day long all you hear is the sound of the sea lapping the shore and sun shining instead of the constant rumble of motor bikes etc

I'd like to give special thanks for the staff. Sinta is simply amazing. Words cannot describe the culinary delights that were prepared by her during our stay. From traditional Balinese and Indonesian meals to our requests, nothing was too much for her. A very special thanks to her for arranging the Roast Pig and Balinese dancers for a celebration of a birthday whilst we were there
Ketut - another amazing cook who helped out Sinta in the preparation of our meals. Again, nothing was too much for these two lovely ladies

The villa, private pool and gardens are kept perfectly clean and tidy all day long by the very friendly gardeners, Eka and Angus. Eka also doubled as our driver during our stay and I would like to specially thank him for his safe and courteous driving. Eka is a good driver and would take us anywhere we asked at anytime,

I could ramble on here all day long extolling the virtues of Bali Sea Villas. Instead all I can say, stop reading this and other reviews, go to the booking section of Trip Advisor, arrange a holiday here and experience the wonderful pleasures of Bali Sea Villas for yourself.

Traveler rating: “Just Perfect”

***** Reviewed September, 2014

The villa was exactly as described, and very clean.

The organization with the owner very easy and efficient and the team (cook, driver...) was very nice and very helpful.

We had very nice vacation and it might not be the most touristic area of Bali, we found a lot of things to do and we have spent very nice vacation.

***** Reviewed August, 2014

Another great stay at Bali Sea Villas - North Bali. The whole team was fantastic and everything ran extremely smoothly. We really enjoyed the whole Seririt area and had great fun diving, at the water park and just generally hanging out by the pool at this lovely property.
The whole family just loves going here. I’ve no doubt it will become a regular on our touring programme.

***** Reviewed April, 2014

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! I couldn't imagine a more amazing place! We stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed every single day. The pictures don't do its justice. We had most days lazing around by the pool, Sinta the house staff is such a sweetie, so kind! She is an amazing cook, we loved every meal she prepared. She also kept the villa immaculate. The gardens are beautiful and again are kept pristine by the gardeners. Having a driver made getting around so easy, especially as the villa is not located in a busy town, we just let Puma know the previous day where we wanted to go and he was there waiting for us on time with the air-conned car :-) bliss..... 

I can't express how happy we were with our stay, everything went perfect. We recommend doing the VIP greet at the airport.. (I qued longer for the loo than it took to get our cases and leave the airport!) we used arrows dive for diving which were also amazing (review also on trip advisor) and the spice bar 15 min drive from the villa is a really nice atmosphere to relax by the beach with a cocktail. 

We will defiantly be returning in the future. 

Traveler rating: “Fantastic Escape”

***** Reviewed April, 2014

We stayed here last week and had the most relaxing time in a paradise setting. Having travelled to Bali a few times before North Bali was somewhere new to us so we were excited to see what was on offer compared to the usual tourist resorts in the South. We are a family of four and this was a villa more suited to our needs than any we have stayed before, spacious and truly gorgeous with a real Balinese traditional feel yet with all modern day conveniences as well such as reliable Wifi. With a staff consisting of gardener, driver, and maid/ cook we were very spoiled everyday and Sinta our maid made us delicious meals and she spoke excellent English and anything we needed she took care of. Thankyou Sinta - as well as serving us most hospitably you also gave us an insight into your life in Bali and we enjoyed so much getting to know you and meeting your family. Eka our driver also was fantastic, not speaking English but he made sure we were escorted everywhere with safety, care and a very happy disposition, thankyou Eka especially for making our journeys memorable and safe. For anyone looking for a paradise place in Bali to truly relax and unwind Bali Sea Villas is the place to go! Just sad when we had to leave but thinking about the possibility to return hopefully soon. Our host Jonathan also deserves much thanks.....putting on an amazing pork Balinese roast and private villa dance show for us, which was amazing - thankyou Jonathan. If you do come here you must also take a day out to snorkel at Menjangan Island at the most secluded and amazing reef with expert guides, having snorkelled the Great Barrier Reef this was personally a far better experience as there were no tourists to compete with, in a completely idyllic setting. Spice beach club also worth a mention, it's close by and does amazing food and in true Balinese hospitality style the owner makes you very welcome. Don't hesitate just go will not regret a single moment.

Bali Sea Villas was the perfect antidote to escape from the busyness of life. What a great place to chill, relax and renew with the sound of the waves lapping nearby.. and no crowds. The villa was immaculate and stylish and the grounds are beautifully kept - it was like our own private resort. The staff are attentive yet discrete and we were especially spoilt by our maid Sinta with her delicious Balinese cooking and the way we were looked after. We have been to Bali many times and feel this is the best place we have stayed - we'll definitely come back, hopefully sooner rather than later!

Traveler rating: “It was just amazing !!! :-)”

***** Reviewed December, 2013

We spent two weeks at Bali Sea Villas over Christmas and New Years Eve. What a fantastic place to stay and just relax! It already started with the great VIP Meeting Service at the airport: No waiting for a visa, no standing in lines... just go through all the controls, collect our luggage and be warmly received from Eka, the driver, who drove us safely to the villa on the other side of the island.
The villa is absolutely beautiful, everything you need is there. And the staff does a great job, they cared about us and were very lovely and always smiling! They prepared everyday very delicious meals, cleaned the villa and kept the garden in a great shape while being almost invisible. All we had to do was to relax and enjoy our stay.
There is nothing to complain, they really did a perfect job and we had amazing holidays in Bali. We definitely found our little paradise and hope to come back soon. Thank you so much and keep going with the great work!

We had a truly wonderful time. We travelled with two small boys (3 and 7) and the whole experience was just fantastic. The pick-up was smooth, the property was great, the staff were wonderful and the location perfect. We have booked to come back for our next holiday, what more can I say.

Traveler rating: "Paradise found in North Bali"

***** Reviewed Nov 13, 2013

When my wife and I decided to go to Bali we wanted to go to a place that was quiet and very relaxing with a view of paradise and very friendly people and that is exactly what we got during our stay at Bali Sea Villas. The villa is clean and exceptionally beautiful as are the views. I cannot say enough about the staff. They were always there to help when you needed anything and were very willing to take you anywhere you needed to go. Eka and Sinta were kind enough to introduce us to their Balinese traditions and took us to a few of the temples nearby. It was a true learning experience. Sinta, who is an excellent cook, cooked many Balinese and Indonesian lunches and dinners for us that were very delicious. The meals prepared were so good we never wanted to have our meals away from the Villa. You have the option of having her prepare the meals as you request or do as we did and enjoy the Balinese cuisine as she prepared the meals. The Bali Sea Villas is truly beautiful and a paradise. The owners were very friendly and helped us in any way possible. We made friends with the owners and the staff that we will remember forever.
We truly enjoyed our stay but our only regret is we wish we could stay longer.
The one item I would change when returning to Bali which was my fault is not taking the owners suggestion and take the VIP Service at the Airport. This service will speed up the Immigration process by 90-120 minutes. Awesome experience and we will definitely return.

I have just returned from two wonderful weeks weeks at Bali Sea Villas, and I can't fault our time there, from start to finish it was perfect.

Firstly we were met at the airport by a representative from the VIP meeting service, who took care off our visa's, and enabled us to avoid the long queues and walk straight through to collect or luggage, which after a long day of traveling was a god send, so well worth taking advantage of this extra service. We were then met efficiently by the driver and enjoyed a pleasant scenic drive to Bali sea villas.

Great first impressions on arrival at the villa, we were warmly welcomed by the owners and staff and greeted with a cold welcome drink, before being shown around the villa and grounds.

The villa and surroundings are just beautiful and have recently been refurbished to a high standard. Lovely decor throughout the villa, very clean and kept to a high standard throughout our stay. The bedrooms are spacious with large and very comfortable beds, both also have air conditioning which was an added bonus. Plenty of wardrobe space plus dressing tables in each room. The large walk in shower was also lovely with ample towels provided as well as slippers, bath robes and toiletries, which was a nice added touch. Free wifi was also provided, along with sky tv and iPod docking station.

Outside of the villa the view is simply beautiful, overlooking the beach with views from the pool out to sea, lovely well maintained gardens, with just the sound of the waves crashing from morning to night, was just pure bliss and relaxation. We never grew tired of the view, peace and quiet, or beautiful sunrises and sunsets, which we were sad to leave behind at the end of our stay. The owners provided a great service and were more than happy to help during our stay, both English and Indonesian speaking which was also a great help.

Our lovely maid worked very hard throughout our stay, and catered for our every need, the food freshly prepared each day was excellent, and easily of restaurant standard. We were happy to go with her suggestions of different things to try, but the provision of menus to select from meant we had the freedom to choose also. As well as cooking, our washing and ironing was also done when needed, which was a nice luxury. The provision of a driver was a great and happy to take you wherever we wished to go, and always drove in a safe manner. All staff were very friendly and work very hard to ensure you enjoy your stay.

If your looking or pure relaxation and luxury then I can't recommend Bali sea villas enough, thank you for making it a great holiday.

Bali sea villas a very beautiful and relaxing place to stay in the North of Bali. All day long you hear the sound of the sea lapping the shore and sun shining. The villa, private pool and gardens are kept perfectly clean and tidy all day long by the very friendly maids and gardeners. Food cooked by the maids is lovely and no need to leave the villa to go for dinner if you don't want to, the standard is the same if not better than a restaurant. The driver is very safe and knows exactly where he is going so perfect for day trips to the many places around. The owners living in the next door villa are very friendly and more than helpful, whilst conveniently able to speak the local language too. Highly recommended and we absolutely loved our stay. We also bought our 10 month old little girl and the villa provided, cot, baby bath, steriliser, bottle warmer, high chair etc so can cater for children too.

We hope to come back in the near future, thanks to all for a lovely stay!

Villa Frangipani is a beautiful house on the north side of Bali lacking in nothing. The staff (cook, gardeners and any available driver) are very nice and helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay where we were both had our own space but also walking, bike or scooter distance of village and town. And once you've tasted the cook the meals then you know that you come back soon ...

The stay in the Bali Sea Villa was in one word fantastic. The beautiful villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden with sea views. The location is perfect for many excursions in the very authentic north Bali. And after such an innovative trip there is a lovely private pool waiting for you and really heartwarming good care of the villa staff. You feel like a King.

My wife and I spent 1 week at Bali Sea Villas - North Bali, only wishing it could have been longer.
It started from the pick-up from the airport and, having spent several holidays in Bali previously, we were both pleasantly surprised by our driver’s proficient and, above all, safe, driving.
Once arrived at the Villa, we were met by the owners and a much appreciated fresh welcome drink and introduction to our villa. We were immediately impressed and felt right at home.

Thoughtful touches included mobile phones for local use (it cost us only a few dollars for our week’s use, but much easier than heavy roaming charges), a welcome pack of basics which meant we were immediately self-sufficient and the nowadays rare provision of free (and very fast) wifi. I must admit the latter slightly annoyed my wife who usualy demands my full attention, but I was able to stream the Grand Prix via my iPad, which I mention for the lads out there. The villa itself is very well appointed and the new owners have upgraded the facilities recently, so everything was in immaculate condition and I would be willing to bet that they will keep it that way, given their self-evident attention to detail already.

I was eternally happy to enjoy a very pleasant shower and quickly fell into an un disturbed evening’s sleep in our Balinese style bedroom which was maintained at a perfect temperature, thanks to sensible and efficient air-conditioning facilities and fans throughout. The next morning, we awoke to the sound we grew to love over our week in Bali Sea Villas – the gentle wash of the sea on shore, not 50m from where we slept. Not the loud raucous roar of the Southern coastline, but the gentle wash of the North, which personally I find much more relaxing and attractive – although this would obviously not suit those of you who prefer surfing. Note – this does favour scuba diving, for which this are of Bali is renowned and superior to the South, due to the relative calmness and therefore greater clarity of water

Our first full day, much like the remainder of our week, began with our attentive staff attending to our needs, overlooking our lovely own pool – the joy of which was that we didn’t have to fight our way to the front, leave towels as place markers, listen to other people’s music, or unwanted conversations..In short, Paradise Found. Likewise, the dinners were superb. The resident cook was fantastic and we quickly learned to simply follow their suggestions, all of which we loved. We are not vegetarian, but that wouldn’t have been a problem.

A word on the facilities – the whole villa has been recently upgraded and decorated in traditional, tasteful Balinese style, which we found to be totally appropriate and perfect in function. Our week went all too quickly and we left, totally relaxed, totally satisfied and looking forward to our return next time.

An unreserved recommendation to any prospective holidaymakers and 10/10 from a very happy couple, who got a great bargain and great value.

Welcome by the staff was very nice. The villa and the garden were even more beautiful then on the pictures. Nice and quiet surroundings, a beautiful view and the sound of the sea. Tini and Sinta are great cooks and they cook whatever you want to eat. A fantastic location for people who like peace and quiet and do not like overcrowded touristic places.
