Amazing villa experience
Excellent location, staff, villa. Close to all the great Seminyak restaurants, shops and beach. The staff make this the ultimate villa experience. This is our second stay in aliya with another family and everything is just so easy.
Heaven on a stick.
This is my third visit to villa aliya.
Every visit has been with a different group.
Firstly a group of 8 girls came for 10 days a fantastic experience sitting around the pool sipping cocktails, having dinners arranged in the villa for us were amazing as good as some of the restaurants.
The location of the villa is fantastic close to all the best restaurants and clubs in Seminyak, Potato Head, W hotel, Mint, Huu bar, Sarong, Ku De Ta and many many more.
Second visit was more of a family trip with 3 kids, well let me tell u the kids didn't want to leave and being teenagers the vicinity of Villa aliya was fantastic for the girls to go up to the markets at Seminyak Square and all the other fantastic shops in the vicinity.
Thirdly, has been a romantic trip with my partner and friends. Once again the vicinity for wining and dining is second to none.
Romantic dinners at La Lucciola, Slippery Stone, Metis, Mamasan are so close.
Treatments at the villa are arranged at your convenience or just around the corner is the famous Bodyworks.
The staff are just amazing nothing is too much trouble after a long day out you are greeted with a cold towel and a refreshing drink to recharge after your day.
Accommodation is so luxurious, the beds so comfy, air condition, and the best bathrooms with Villa aliya signature bath products that smell divine.
I would recommend Villa aliya to anyone looking for a villa in Seminyak the location is the best as you can walk everywhere or jump in a taxi for $1.00!!!
Holiday of a lifetime!!
I was fortunate to be invited to share in Christmas Festivities with my brother & his wife at Villa aliya. Well let me tell you it was a holiday of a life time!! Our stay at Villa aliya was absolutely wonderful. The staff were amazing by being attentive to our every need, they made every request seem so effortless. The bedrooms were so beautifully appointed not to mention the majestic bathrooms. Mmmm MMM the food was incredible. My dream is definitely to get back to Villa aliya & be spoilt all over again. Thank you so much for allowing me to be apart of the Villa aliya experience.
Most relaxing holiday I'VE ever had
I was lucky enough to stay at Villa aliya with my Sister recently and the whole experience was fantastic. The Villa is amazing.. beautifully decorated with large bedrooms and bathrooms, gorgeous areas for relaxing and a pool we found hard to tear ourselves away from. Its in such a great location, close to beach, shopping and amazing restaurants. The staff are just incredible. Nothing is too much trouble and they are so friendly and helpful. They arranged our massages and restaurant bookings too so everything was taken care of. Our breakfasts were something to look forward to every day - so fresh and delicious and prepared with love.
I have done quite a bit of travelling and my stay at Villa aliya was the most relaxing holiday I have ever had. I can't wait to return for another unforgettable holiday.
Holiday Haven in the heart of Seminyak
This is my second stay and loved it just as much as the first. A secure, stylish villa, located in a tranquil lane right in the heart of Seminyak. Walking distance to W, Potao Head, Kudeta...It's is a very beautiful open plan villa with spacious rooms and bascially has everything you could wish for. The jewel in the crown are the amazing staff. They are polite, attentive, personable and professional. It was wonderful to see all the old faces from 3 years earlier. Breakfast by the pool was a delight and I enjoyed the extra effort in presenting things just a little differently each day whether it was the placement of towels and flowers or different crockery, it all made the experience just a little more special. The owner Ruby is a delight to deal with which is important when you are trying to organise a holiday for a group of people. She couldn't have been more helpful or understanding. I would not hestitate in recommending this Villa to anyone.
We loved the Villa which was very comfortable and the staff were
The service was excellent with very helpful staff.We loved the accommodation and layout of the house,The bathrooms were wonderful and clean.Breakfasts were very nice with great fruit and a good selection of breads and pastries.
Total luxury and decadence
We loved every minute of our 10 day stay with Manik, Nyoman, Naba, Made, Kadek, Gede and the whole gang at Villa aliya! They made the stay amazing, by being attentive to our every need and ensuring our holiday was a success. The location is amazing, just across the road from the beach, a very quick walk to 'eat' street, and all the groovy restaurants on the water such as Ku De Ta, Potato Head etc.
The villa itself was beautifully appointed. A main consideration for us though was that the rooms that the children would have normally slept in were upstairs and my young children didn't want to go 'outside' and down stairs during the night if they needed us. So we ended up all bunking in one room. This was a good compromise as there was plenty of room in both master suites, and the children didn't have to worry about being too far away. I think that this style of villa will be perfect for older children and we will definitely be back for another visit. Also the nature of the villa, being designed around the beautiul pool, meant that the pool didn't have a pool safety fence and for little ones this can be a concern. We had an 8 month old baby and a 2.5 year old who needed 100% supervision at all times.
Neither of these impacted negatively on the holiday though! We also asked Manik to arrange a nanny for us, and her recommendation was fantastic.
Overall, we loved it and will definitely return when our children are a few years older!!
Blissful oasis in popular Seminyak
We approached the villa, up a very long private driveway...only to be met by our beautiful hostess and her cheerful staff who ushered us into the property which left us in awe. The pool, the verdant garden, the villa...just breathtaking! We spent the next four days in total bliss!
Our stay at Villa aliya was absolutely wonderful. The bedrooms were beautiful, the staff were so friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. The food, particularly the breakfast was amazing. The pool and bar areas are so relaxing, I cant think of a bad word to say about this place!
Mick & Judy (family)
Our first Villa stay in Bali brought back memories of family gatherings at Christmas time. The staff could not do enough for you as we were greeted and their friendly service and manner were as if they were family welcoming you into their home. The staff made our stay adventerous and sublime. They played cards, soccer, entertained the kids and gave the adults space and time to consume the surroundings in an extremly comfortable way. The location alows for easy walking to major entertainment and an easy waly down the beach to the hustle and bustle. We look forward to our next stay in Villa aliya to visit the staff whom we befriended and want out of their way to make our holiday wonderful.
We had a wonderful holiday at Villa aliya. The property is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and spacious. The staff really make your stay special, attending to every possible need. We ate at the villa several times and the food was great. The villa is well positioned for the beach and restaurants. Do book in advance as they get very busy. The beach is quite wild so not great for youngsters in the surf, we spent more time swimming in the pool. Very relaxing, if you do not have teenage daughters who want to spend the whole time shopping in the local shops and markets!
Absolutely perfect holiday home!
Aliya is a beautiful villa set right in the heart of Seminyak and within walking distance to all the best restaurants, spa and shopping, yet secluded and quiet at the same time!
The staff, led by Manik, are super-professional and so creative in their table-settings and other details which changed every day. They are also very caring and willing to play with the children in our group who loved them (especially Naba :). Thank you Nyoman, Made, Kadek and Chef! We can't wait to come back again soon!
Absolutely wonderful holiday experience.
The brilliant staff, especially Manik, Nyoman, and Naba, definitely enhanced my holiday. They provided a wonderfully relaxing environment with exceptional service and friendliness.
The villa itself was stunning and even more beautiful than I had anticipated. I would have been happy to never leave it, however, its location amid the best restaurants, shops and bars ensured my absence from time to time.
I loved my time at Villa aliya and cannot recommend it highly enough.
Washington DC, District of Columbia
A dream island holiday place. From the moment you go through the antique front wooden doors, you feel like you are in someplace special. The L-shaped villa surrounds a beautiful rectangular pool with water spewing down a wall at one end. The architecture and garden are sublime and impeccable. The villa is so beautifully decorated you almost feel like you are in a museum. Bedrooms are enclosed and air conditioned with on-suite bathrooms and those on the ground floor have lovely private outdoor showers with rain water heads that transform bathing to another level. The beds are super comfortable. The personnel are very attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Although the villa is ideally located within walking distance to numerous restaurants (and the beach), it also has an excellent chef. We had two delightful and delicious candle light dinners next to the pool that few restaurants in the world could match for taste, atmosphere and service. By far the nicest holiday place I have ever stayed in. The only downside was having to leave.
A seamless delight from arrival to departure.
This handsome villa is eleganty appointed with a polished and attentive staff. Though it is well situated in the heart of the chic and fashionable Seminyak area of Bali, it's location on a private, gated drive ensures privacy, serenity, and security. Breakfast beside the pool is a highlight. The staff are unfailingly charming and can with ease arrange everything from transportation to private entertaining at the villa. I only wish it and the whole island were closer to home.
Heaven on earth
Service was impeccable and personable. Although close to the hectic centre of Seminyak, it was secluded providing a nice and quiet environment when required.
The staff added to a great experience.
Country Victoria Australia
Beautiful place, beautiful people!
Lovely place to spend with our beautiful family! So close to all facilities, beach, restaurants and shops. Staffs assistance for our needs was outstanding.
Home away from Home
You could choose to stay in any number of luxury villas in Bali, or you could stay at Villa aliya.
The key difference's between other accomodation we have stayed in when travelling to Bali, and Villa aliya were, the staff and the villa.
Firstly the Villa is maintained to a standard better than other luxury accomodation I have stayed at. Secondly, the staff treat you like your at home.
The pictures on this website do not depict the real beauty of this place. You have to see for yourself. Also the location is perfect for shopping and dining.
We will be back next year, I just need to dry out my daughter first after being in the pool 10 days straight.
Thanks to Manik and her team , in particular Naba.
Nothing to complain about
Beautiful villa with good layout, excellent service and great location .
We chose Villa aliya to celebrate my husband's 50th Birthday in april as it has a fantastic layout and large lawn area which makes it ideal for large parties. It accommodates 2 families perfectly with 2 master suites and great accommodation in the 2 rooms upstairs for kids, in our case - one room for teenage boys, one for girls. There is a choice of spaces to be together as a group or escape quietly to read a book or snooze.
There is, in my opinion, no better location to stay on the Island. It is smack bang in the middle of the best part of Seminyak/Laksmana, walking distance to a multitude of fantastic upmarket restaurants, bars and shops.
This was our 12th trip to Bali in as many years and we have been fortunate to have stayed in some of the best Villa's on the island so I can honestly say that it would be it hard to find a better group of staff ably led by the beautiful Manik. Manik handled the organisation and co-ordination of my husband's party for 60 people better than some Banqueting Departments in 5 Star hotels I've dealt with. The decorations, food and service literally brought a tear to my eye - it was amazing! We are in the throes of building a new house (hence my delay in writing this review) and when I mentioned this to Ruby she and Manik took all preparations in hand and produced a party that surpassed all expectations - all with absolutely no stress. Manik is well supported by the very capable, caring and ever-smiling Nyoman, Naba and Made. Nothing is too much trouble for these three - they're brilliant - as is Gede the Villa chef.
Writing this review has rekindled a lot of happy holiday memories, better get on to booking Villa aliya again for our next holiday - can't wait!
Great service and very clean villa in a good area in Seminyak
Staff excellent and great location and good for families for young kids as large garden.
Food very good and very clean villa and walking distance to the beach and some great restaurants and shops.
Ultra relaxing luxe haven
We would definitely recommend staying at Villa aliya. The staff and lovely and Ruby (the owner) is full of helpful hints and keen to ensure you enjoy your stay. You wont want to leave!
We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful stay at Villa aliya. I have been coming to Bali for many years and have to stay that the staff at this villa are the best I have had yet. They were always on hand when needed but also managed to be discreet. We had 2 young children with us and they were so helpful and loving with them. The breakfasts were great and the few times we ate in the food was well above average. We loved being so close to everything - walking to the beach and many restaurants. Thank you for looking after us - we would love to come back!
3 days of bliss
This was the first time a a villa .It was everything and more. The staff were great and would do anything for you.It would be great for all group of different people from families to groups of friends that just want something different from a big noisy hotel.Everything you needed was there and the shops were only a 2minute walk away.My favorable things were the pool and the shower as you looked up and you could see the blue sky as they were out door showers...The only thing i didn't like and im only nit picking was the pillows they were very soft
Great service , Great location !
Thank you !
I recently stayed with 7 of my friends for a long weekend and had such a great time staying at this villa. The staff where amazing ! I can not fault anything at all.
Heaven on a stick
Villa aliya is located in a quite secure complex in Seminyak close to all the amenties the area offers including great restaurants, night clubs and shopping.
The Villa itself is stunning with all the facilities one could want, the biggest advantage that this Villa has over many others is the Staff, the Manageress, Manik and her assistants, Naba, Yoman and Made` and the chef were exceptional, nothing was any trouble and they carried out their duties in a friendly efficient and almost invisible manner, there presence never seemed apparent, but they were just there whenever you wanted them they made the whole holiday more enjoyable and the effort they went to in preparing the 60th birthday celebrations of one of our party were incredible.. a great team effort.
Virginia Richard Jack and Eliza
This is an elegant and stylish villa with warm and friendly staff who make you feel so welcome and look after you beautifully. Nothing is too much trouble! The villa is really central to the Seminyak action so you just wander out and are in the heart of the action but behind the villa doors it is private and comfortable and an oasis ...we will definitely return and would recommend it very highly.

We returned home from Villa aliyah a week ago and there hasn't been a day we didn't think about the amazing experience we had staying at the Villa !!
Everything is ideal, from the warm welcome upon arrival, the amazing in the villa prepared dinners, the amazing rooms and best outside bathrooms we have ever seen, to the location in Seminyak itself.
We loved every minute of our stay with that we have the great warm and friendly staff to thank for. Nyoman and his colleagues were there 24/7 to provide us with anything we might need. They made our stay memorable !
Sydney - Australia
Thank you for a surreal experience.
The staff were so attentive and we were spoilt!!!. The pool is one of the biggest private villa pools we have seen. The villa felt like a home and not a hotel room in which a hotel room would have cost almost the same for a family of four...why would you bother with adjoining hotel rooms when you can have a world class huge luxury home with 6 staff for almost the same price. It was so easy to also do day trips to other parts of Bali and then come back to Villa aliya where the staff were waiting for you and ensured you had whatever you wanted when you arrived back. Just a beautiful experience and we thank all at Villa aliya...we are already missing it so much!!!
A wonderful, relaxing stay
I recently stayed at Villa aliya with my husband, teenage daughter and two of her friends.
From the moment we were greeted at the front entrance we knew this was going to be a lovely place to stay. The staff are wonderful and the villa is so beautiful. We were within walking distance to the beach, day spas, shops and restaurants. Breakfasts every morning were delicious. I highly recommend staying at Villa aliya for a truly special holiday.
One of the best vacations I ever had
Villa aliya was amazing, the staff were very helpful and on call 24hrs, the rooms couldn't be better, the location was perfect within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Each room had its own cable TV and separate bathroom, as well as an open shower for some of the rooms. The living room is an open plan which gives a tropical feel and situated right in front of the swimming pool.
Thank you Ruby for everything, you've been really helpful. One of the best vacations I ever had and I would definitely do it again.
Claire & Edward Tonkin
My husband and I chose to hold our wedding reception at Villa aliya after a friend recommended it to us. From the moment we stepped out of our taxi we were greeted by exceptionally friendly and accommodating staff who went to no end to make our stay and wedding reception spectacular. My only regret is that we did not stay longer. The Villa itself is very open and welcoming, and the pool and gardens are kept beautifully. All the food was delicious and fresh and really showcased what Bali cuisine has to offer. I cannot recommend the Villa and its staff more highly, we cannot wait to return!
40th birthday celebrations
Loved it, loved it, loved it!!! We had the best time staying at villa aliya. The villa is gorgeous, the beds and pillows are super comfortable and all the little details make it feel like you are staying at someones home. The staff is amazing and looked after us so well, nothing is too much trouble! I will definitely come back!!!
Absolutely Stunning - wow!
We had a divine five nights at Villa aliya in September. It was our first trip to Bali and after 10 nights in a resort in Sth Kuta, we were looking forward to some luxury at the end of our holiday.
Let me start by saying that the Villa itself is gorgeous! Everything has been thought of, and you will want for nothing. The staff (Manik and boys) could not do enough for us, including one of the boys going to buy my young boys a soccer ball!!! The staff would partake in our afternoon game of soccer on the large lawn out the back.
We didn't really eat meals at the Villa, choosing instead to wander into Seminyak to try the various restaurants. You must eat at Rumours in Seminyak - great value and loads of fun! We did eat dinner at the Villa on one occasion and it was nice. The breakfasts were lovely and included everything you could want.
Having now holidayed at both a large resort and the Villa (we in fact paid more for five nights at the Villa than we did for 10 nights at the resort), I don't think I would holiday at the Villa again. Despite its luxury, it was a little "quiet" for our family. I think it would be more suited to honeymooners.
There is only one downside to this Villa - the wild cats! I appreciate that the Villa is entirely open air, and that the staff can't stop the cats getting in, but both my son and I are allergic to cats and it was not pleasant. Unfortunately the cats had kittens at the time of our stay, and the kittens howled all night, making it difficult to sleep. It was also a hassle to keep ensuring that the children had closed all doors during the days so the cats didn't wander into their rooms. I must say though the staff did everything possible to try and keep the cats away, but there were clearly too many to deal with! I feel that if you are paying top dollar for a holiday rental, you should not have to put up with wild cats!
All in all our stay the Villa was lovely and the staff should be commended on their professionalism and hospitality.
We held our wedding reception here at the villa and were lucky to have stayed 3 amazing nights. The place itself would have to be up in the highest standards and one of the most beautiful we have all stayed in ever! The staff and all involved were wonderful.

A Home away From Home
We had the most wonderful holiday. Villa aliya had everything we could possibly want including a perfect location in the middle of Seminyak, friendly and helpful staff and fantastic food. We could walk to the beach or chill by the pool, go out for a bite to eat or enjoy a relaxing night in and dine outdoors in peaceful surroundings. We didn't want to leave. A big thank you to all the staff including Manik, Gede and Made (chefs) Nyoman, Naba and Kadek. See you again next year !
Wonderful - don't hestiate to book
The team at Villa aliya are nothing short of wonderful. The villa is absoultely gorgeous in easy walk to the beach between Ku Da Ta and Potatoe Head - super fun location if you ever can tear yourself away from the Villa. Extremely tastefully done, fabulous staff who can make any and all arangments and place your holiday enjoyment at the top of their agenda. I wish I could go back tomorrow.
Fantastic all the way around!
The Villa is in an excellent location, just a few minute walk to the beach and great places to eat. There is so much to see and do in Bali, but once you get into the villa it is hard to leave. The Staff are there 24/7 and are at your service, however are not intrusive of your privacy. Nothing but good things to say about the Staff and Villa aliya!
Villa aliya was absolute luxury. Fantastic location, staff and accommodation. It would highly recommend it to families or groups of friends wanting a private retreat.
Ruby you do a fantastic job with your staff, they pride themselves on their service!
They couldnt do enough to entertain the children and help plan our days!!
Will be recommending your beautiful Villa to everyone I know who talks about Bali!
This is the second time we have stayed at Villa aliya. It was so relaxing. The staff were so attentive; making us cocktails and attending to our every need. There was plenty of space for the adults and children. The upstairs cocktail area is so beautiful and the lounge area has enough room for all.
Villa aliya was a small walk to Seminyak's best restaurants; Ultimo, Sarong, La Luciola and some cheaper but delicious restaurants.
While in the Villa, we had access to all the comforts of home and the luxuries of Bali; a sparkling pool, enormous day bed, cocktails and a delicious breakfast each day.
The decor and gardens are beautiful and the staff maintain the complex to the highest standard.
With two children under 3 in our group, I was able to relax in the pool, with the knowledge that my children were safely asleep in their room in the secure complex.
We will be back.
Villa aliya - Amazing
This was our second stay at Villa aliya and this time we travelled with our extended family and young children. We had 8 adults and 2 kids under 3 and we had plenty of room.
The villa pool and villa space is most impressive (other than the staff). There are day beds to lay about, gazebo for reading or playing with the children as well as a large grassed are for the kids to play, plus a huge pool.
The 2 ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms are amazing with the upper rooms not far behind.
We brought our own spirits and the Villa staff were more than happy to make us up cocktails around the pool or pre dinner drinks.
Breakfast was served everyday with fresh fruit, pastries, as well as bacon eggs, Nasi Goreng, Me Goreng or whatever you like.
Overall I couldn't rate Villa aliya any higher for a family holiday like the one we just had. I couldn't imagine being in a hotel and having to pack up children's toys, bags etc each time we wanted to go to the pool or Hotel restaurant for lunch or breakfast.
The location in Seminyak is fantastic only a few minutes work to the Beach, Grocer and Grind or the restaurants of Seminyak including Ultimo and Trattoria. The new Potato Head bar is only just around the corner as well.
5 stars and a special thanks must go to the Staff who make the holiday all the more memorable.

I'll be back"
Villa aliya is truly an Oasis with a thoughtful attention to detail and an eclectic style. I loved the separate living areas and the entertainment room. The pool is huge and the villa is kept in beautifully. It's ideal for a family or a group of friends . as there is so much space. My only recommendations would be an extra couple of sunbeds as currently there are only 2.
The staff were very helpful,warm and nothing was too much trouble. "I'll be back"
Not only a beautiful villa but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made it unforgetable. So comfortable and so clean!!
Redefined hospitality for my guests and I.
We were married at aliya in June 2011, choosing it because it had a spacious garden. It exceeded our expectations in every way. I think the villa's best asset is its wonderful staff, whose smiles were infectious. Below is an excerpt from a thankyou to the owner. I highly recommend Villa aliya.
"We had a wonderful day, the place looked even better than we had imagined. The lighting and sound system was very professional. The buffet was very appealing and tasty. All our guests had a great time, it was a unique wedding experience.
The staff, Manik, Naba, Nyoman, Made and the other boys were wonderful. They anticipated everything that we wanted throughout our stay and nothing was ever a problem.
We were thrilled with the photographs, especially the book the guys (Cashflow Photography) put together. A similar photography package would have cost us a fortune here in australia.
We hope to return to Villa aliya for a five year anniversary, if not sooner."
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Villa aliya. The staff were welcoming,friendly, helpful and very attentive. The villa itself was wonderful,spacious and very comfortable, beautifully decorated and in a excellent location. I would thoroughly recommend Villa aliya to family and friends and hope to return for a holiday soon myself!
Beautiful villa, fantastic staff, great location. I'll be back!
The villa was beyond my expectations, beautiful rooms, gardens and pool. The staff are fantastic, friendly and welcoming; nothing was too hard, whether it was organising trips, taxis or helping with shopping acquisitions. The first night the staff organised a beautiful Balinese banquet. Each morning after a morning swim we were served breakfast and I'm still dreaming of the fresh tropical fruit and juices. The location of the villa was definitely an added bonus, basically a 5 minute walk to Seminyak Square. Once inside the confines of the villa you wouldn't even know that you were in busy holiday centre. I can't wait until I go back for my next stay!

Why go anywhere else?
Villa aliya was an unforgettable experience - magnificent accommodation, stunning staff, perfect location and beautiful surrounds. From the minute we arrived we knew we had found the best. Can't wait to go back!
Perth, Western Australia
We arrived to the villa on a very hot evening. We were welcomed with grace and simplicity. A tour of the villa showed us the attention to detail I had seen nowhere else and a separation from our teenagers that we loved. This coupled with the close proximity to Seminyak's restaurants, bars and cafes meant that walking wasn't an issue. Best of all was the attentive staff who were always available but never crowding us. This villa is a perfect hideaway in the heart of Seminyak with the beach just across the road. I can't think of a thing that would hold me back from staying there again.
An amazing week!!
Thank you Ruby and all your wonderful staff, we had the best week at your villa, it felt like home!! And so close to many fabulous restaurants, not to mention the spas. Next time we will come for longer.
The Villa is gorgeous, beautiful setting and fantastic location. The Service is world class, food brilliant and the ambiance and energy is breathtaking.
I loved this place, the staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient, the villa was very comfortable in a great location, the facilities were perfect, I loved the outdoor showers and the shower gel was heavenly.
Slice of Paradise
A beautiful Villa in a fabulous location. Created to provide a sense of togetherness, but large enough for everyone to have their own space. Serene and tastefully decorated.
Fabulous facilities, food and most of all service. No request was too difficult and was always met with wonderful smiles. They prepared a sumptuous birthday feast for one of our party, beautifully decorating the outdoor dining area for the occasion and organising traditional musicians and dancers for entertainment. The entire set-up enabled three generations of extended family to really relax and enjoy each other's company. Many thanks to Manik and the team, we look forward to coming back!
Fabulous facilities, well maintaned, and friendly staff.
Our stay at Villa aliya was very enjoyable. There were many available facilities such as internet, board games, books, stereo systems, cds, etc. The staff were friendly, and went beyond expectation to assure our comfort. Situated in a safe location, and well maintained, I highly recommend this villa for families.
Villa was very well set out with plenty of space and seperate areas to relax.
Staff were very friendly and attentative and certainly made us feel welcome, the food and service were also really good.
Location is also good with the Vila located only a short stroll from the beach and mian shopping area for Seminyak.
Wow! Truly devine!
As soon as our group walked into this place, we were blown away! the house is all open air, and so modern and in such great condition but also had a great tropical feel and the pool...oh i want to be back! i think it's a great place for a group of couples as all the rooms have fantastic ensuites so noone feels like they're missing out.
best of ll was the staff!!! we were a rather rowdy crowd, who liked a cocktail or two, and they have staff on 24/7 serving food and cocktails and always with a smile on their face!
breakfast is also fantastic and they'll cook whatever individual is in the mood for. We split our stay between this villa and a hotel in legian and i just wsih i had squeezed in a few more nights here - it really made our holiday!
Seminyak is a great area - no hassling on the street, boutique shops, great restaurants and best of all the villa is located right near Cool Spa, a classy spa where we all got daily massages.
Villa aliya - faultless, abolutely perfect. you will not find better than this place.
Villa aliya in Seminyak was our choice for our first trip to Bali. After some research and searching on this site we decided on the villa instead of a hotel even though we were just 2 adults and 2 children. We were not disappointed. We were collected efficiently at the airport for the quick journey to the villa where we were greeted by Manik and the team. The welcome was lovely and in no time at all we were relaxing with a drink by the pool. The Villa is lovely with a large warm pool and a massive day bed to relax on. There is a lovely outdoor eating area which the staff will transform for a special dinner and the lounge is stylishly funished. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all very comfortable with efficient air conditioning, tv, dvd and ipod docking stations. Most rooms have outdoor showers. I was concerned that our childrens bedroom was upstairs and we were downstairs. The lounge is open to the garden and there was therefore only the stairs and bedroom door between them and the garden. The garden is walled and the bedroom doors do lock however and can be easily opened from the inside by the children. If the children were younger (ours are 7 and 10) then I would have been more concerned. That said there are staff there 24 hours so you will always feel safe. The wonderful staff make this place and I can't fault their kindness and generosity from the wonderful breakfasts and dinners that we had to them playing with the children and really making a fuss of us without intruding. As far as food was is concerned I would seriously recommend the barbeque which was divine nasi goreng for breakfast is a must as are cocktails in the upstairs bar area. Dinners out and taxis were organised for us very efficiently. La Lucciola was really good, Ku de Ta was okay, but I didn't think it deserved the hype from a food point of view. We took a trip to Ubud and had lunch at the Chedhi Club which was great. The children rode elephants at one of the parks which was fun for them. The in villa massage service was excellent and very reasonable. One or two tips: The staff do not mind you bringing your own shopping including alcohol which they will then serve for you. There are no board games at the villa so you may want to bring your own.

Adult family reunion
we were greeted warmly on arrival by Manik, shown around the beautiful villa and offered coffee.
The villa was fantastic ,beautifully decorated,great large pool.The bedrooms were large , all with their own on suites. In a fabulous position, walking distance to restaurants , spas, beach, shops.
The staff were great, always smiling, very helpful and obliging., helping organize whatever we wanted to do.
It was perfect for us, a family of 6 adults, who live long distances apart, to have a fun, relaxing reunion.
You will never want to leave !
Villa alyia is truly magical and made even more so by the amazing staff that become your friends and are so helpful and caring and cater for what ever type of holiday you may need. I nearly didn't visited Villa aylia with my family (my husband, mum, dad, brother and his girlfriend and my sister) and we all agreed that this was our favourite family holiday and one we would never forget. I was very surprised when we entered the villa that it looked better in real life than in the photos which happens rarely. The Villa situated in Seminyak is a short walk (5 mins) to the main road where all the restaurants, spas and boutiques are found. Although there was three different couples, the Villa is large enough for everyone to have their own space and privacy if they need it but also have some great times together in the pool and the outside dining areas. If my parents and sister weren't first time Bali visitors then we would have not left the Villa ! The food that we had at the Villa was the best by far of all the restaurants that we went too and also very reasonably priced. The Villa staff go to a great effort to make your dinners something different from the night before and set up the villa with candles and different mood lighting. We will be back at Villa aylis very shortly. Thankyou to all the team for making our holiday so relaxing and memorable.

We stayed at Villa aliya over the New Years period for 10 days & it was absolutley fabulous. The Villa is amazing, the Staff are so lovely, friendly & nothing is a hassle. Ruby was wonderful & so obliging to our requests. We travelled with kids - A 6 year old & a 1 year old. The staff loved the kids & were so helpful in keeping them entertained. They organised a Pool fence for the kids & were happy to help with anything. I highly recommend staying at this Villa as it made my first Bali experience all that bit better. I am already planning my next trip. Thanks so much to Ruby & all the Staff.
this property was truely amazing. the staff were fabulous. the food was exceptional. the location was excellent and the overall experience was a very enjoyable one. we will definately be back to stay at Villa aliya. travelling with 2 small children can be hard work but the facilities and resources available at the villa made it an enjoyable holiday for all. highly recommended.
This is the second time I have done a trip with a couple of girlfriends. Our time is limited and extremely precious which is why we choose Bali. Villa aliya is our accommodation of choice as the staff are friendly and helpful and the location is perfect for our ideal holiday of shopping, relaxing and pampering. Paradise is only a few hours away from home!
We have stayed at Villa aliya the same time last year, and it was absolutely fantastic, again!
The whole experience of sharing time with special friends, and staying at Villa aliya made it the perfect holiday!
I cannot fault Villa aliya at all. The staff are simply amazing - polite, respectful, friendly, warm and incredibly helpful! They made us feel special in a beautiful friendly way!
I love the Villa - the whole set up, including the location, the amenities it offers, the cleanliness, the layout, the decor...everything! It is divine!

A heaven on earth
Our fantastic vacation started with an unforgettable greeting from the wonderful staff of Villa aliya. The villa offers everything and more then you can dream of. Great service, good food, great location and ambience. The only thing you wish for is to return.
Service with a smile!
I stayed at Villa aliya as part of a surf and yoga retreat. I found the villa to be excellent, very comfortable, clean and run very well by the staff. The staff were the crucial factor in making it a great place to stay. They were so friendly and helpful and always interesting to talk to. The food was delicious and the best I had to eat in my whole stay in Bali. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable and clean.
Thanks again to Manik and all the guys who made our trip special.
A trip to paradise
Bali is certainly one of the most beautiful places on earth and Villia aliya is a haven of serenity and comfort. In a beautiful setting with wonderful rooms an incredibly attentive and competent staff, talented cook and chef, and available amenities such as massage, private yoga, guided tours arranged without effort by the staff. The pool is beautiful and the beach a a short walk. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Bali or anywhere else.
What an amazing experience
My husband and I decided to go over to Bali for a quick weekend away (first time away from our children). From the minute we stepped into Villa Aliya, my husband and I were blown away by the beauty and serenity.
On booking our stay, I stipulated fairly high demands - I wanted a romantic and indulgent time for my husband and me. I asked for spa treatments to be pre-ordered, in villa dinners, and extravagant services; I got it all with a smile. I had pre-arranged a romantic dinner - which exceeded all my expectations. The staff spent all afternoon decorating the Villa for our special dinner - and it looked amazing. They had rose petal love hearts on the ground, floral arrangements and traditional Balinese decorations. And then the food - it was extraordinary feast of seafood.
The staff are fantastic - they were so helpful and delightful. After returning to the villa from a hard days shopping, we would be greeted with a cool glass of iced water and cut lime. They made countless drinks (fantastic cocktails), there is nothing better than lounging about the pool with someone bring you drinks and snacks!!!
The staff were very attentive by never intrusive. Breakfast was indulgent - fruit platters, pastries and then a cooked breakfast of your choice. The rooms are fitted out in beautiful furnishings and linen. Bed was very comfortable. The staff would turned down our bed and decorated it with rose petals (all very romantic)
The Villa is kept to a very high standard - clean, fresh and modern. You will not be disappointed with your stay at Villa Aliya.
Thank you Ruby for this whimsical stay in your amazing Villa!

School holiday Getawy
Stayed with our 3 children for 9 days. Service and stafff excellent. Location reasonably quiet except for one major 'fight/argument night at neighbors house and cats howling at night.
Food and amenities excellent.Beautiful house.
The Villa is AMAZING and the staff are terrific & attentive!!!
Wonderful oasis - lazy days by the pool + meals cooked by the chef or a short walk to the beach, amazing restaurants + shopping - GREAT LOCATION! Dreaming of hanging out by the pool with a cocktail as I write this....
Perfect in every way
I cannot say enough about Villa aliya. From the moment we arrived and were warmly greeted by the staff, to the beauty, elegance and comfort of the accommodations, to the excellent service throughout our stay, our vacation was perfection. The thoughtful staff were amazing -- I wish I could have taken them home with me!
The Best Birthday Ever
Our stay at Villa Aliya could not have been more delightful.
The staff is genuinely welcoming yet unobtrusive. Service is seamless: we were a group w/diverse needs yet nothing proved too difficult. The food was excellent – authentic Indonesian and Thai recipes, as well as Western fare, freshly prepared by our charming chef.
The layout and décor of the villa express a casual elegance that made us feel comfortable and pampered.
We indulged in massages, spa treatments, and private yoga instruction at home.
When we were ready to venture out beyond the carved gates we found everything from delicious home-cooked burgers to cuisine comparable to anything you’d find at one of Boulud’s restaurants.
The shopping was out of this world – yet well within reach.
Taking in the sights was effortless: we chose from a directory of activities and points of interest, then the staff arranged for car service.
I’ve been home a week and am already dreaming of my next visit.

Beautiful villa with fabulous staff
My family enjoyed a wonderful Christmas at Villa Aliya. The villa is beautifully designed. It has four bedrooms, a gorgeous pool and very attentive and child-friendly staff. A scrumptious breakfast is included, and although the villa is located within a short distance of some very fine restaurants, dinners at the villa are also highly recommended and can be ordered in advance form the villa's exceptional cook.
birthday bash At Villa Aliya
I had my 50th birthday in May 2009 at Villa Aliya. I have been to Bali many times and stayed at the best hotels that Bali has to offer. Nothing compares to our stay at Villa Aliya. We had homecooked meals by a master chef, his ginger creme brule' was so amazing. I had my 4 children, one with her partner all fit comfortably together so we could enjoy being a family. The staff could not do enough for us. They are truly 5 star, each one of them. Villa Aliya is so centrally located that they could go out by walking across the street or go shopping on foot, get to the spa or bring the spa to us. We felt pampered, had privacy and wouldn't have even left the villa had it not been for the great shopping so near by. Every thing is easy at Villa Aliya, there are no hassles. I can't wait to get back there. I don't need to buy a villa in Bali, it couldn't be better than Villa Aliya. Just book early because it is rightfully popular.
What can I say about Villa Aliya?
My husband and I with our 2 little kids (3 and 7 years old) went to Bali last
summer and stayed at Villa Aliya. We've never stayed in a villa before and
this was our first experience staying in the Seminyak area. After we've
experienced Villa Aliya, I don't think we would like to stay anywhere else.
As soon as we got to the villa, the friendly and attentive staff made us feel
we were home. Coming from a 4+ hour flight from Hong Kong all we want
to do was to just to be pampered right away. Villa Aliya delivered in all
levels of pampering. We were greeted and picked up from the airport and
as soon as we arrived at the villa, the staff were waiting for us with a
delicious refreshing drink and cold towels. The villa's pool and all it's
ambiance was very inviting are relaxing.
We had a super star experience in terms of service, food/beverage,
location, amenities and quality of the villa itself. We hope to stay in Villa
Aliya each time we return to Bali.
The villa is perfect - perfect location, perfect size for a family of 7, including 3 little kids, perfect staff, perfect service. It was the best Bali villa stay we have had in the last 10 years. There's really no need to stay anywhere else.

A most tastefully planned, designed and decorated house compleme
We stayed for one week and even though we have been to Bali many times it was the best and most enjoyable holiday spent there due to the wonderful experience we had at Villa Aliya.
The house was spacious and meticulously organised. The staff were delightful. They were always helpful, thoughtful, had a lovely sense of humour and were extremely polite even by Balinese standards. Their uniforms were immaculate and on special dining occasions were truly special.
We tried the in-house banquet and in-house dining often which was first class i.e. 5* standard. Pricing was extremely reasonable. Complimentary breakfast each day, either by the pool or in the dining area, was sumptuous in itself.
The pool was idyllic, well shaded and sufficient size for all eight of us. The four young teenagers truly enjoyed all the facilities of the upper floor with their own rooms, bathrooms and cable TV, games and ample space. The large enclosed garden was ideal for them too.
All the bedrooms were spacious with the attached bathrooms tasteful and the open air, but wholly private, showers a true delight.
We also liked the upstairs bar which made socializing at sundowner time with the evening breeze wafting through a highlight of the day. Staff made great drinks and cocktails to order with a smile !
We were also amazed at the great location as it was positioned in a secluded compound but within the heart of Seminyak. It was close to much of the exclusive restaurants and night life. It was a short walk from 'Kudeta' our favourite bar/lounge on the beach. 'Sarong' was only slightly further but this was our favourite restauant. It was opposite Breezees too. The rear exit (actually a door) to Seminiyak Square made access to boutique shopping, deli's and coffee shops very easy.
The house is difficult to fault. Our only issue was that broadband access was a bit temperamental at times but then again when we were so relaxed we really didn't care what was happening outside.

6 star luxury with incredible staff.
Highly trained and friendly happy staff make staying at Villa Aliya an experience to return to. Villa Aliya is spacious and comfortably sleeps 6-10 persons, it is immaculate and stylishly decorated.
Situated in a secure, privately owned laneway in Seminyak and is less than a 5 minute leisurely walk to the beach. This residence is perfectly located very close to restaurants and boutique shopping.
Being a guest at Villa Aliya makes it very difficult to leave to experience Bali. Once there, the ambiance and staff make for a totally relaxing holiday - catering for everything from private car tours and transfers, sunset drinks with appetizers to weddings.
Villa Aliya is exceptional, we have been lucky enough to have stayed there twice and will again.

Heaven on earth! A place of love and romance! Cocooned in the ar
The most wonderful helpful staff that could not do enough to make our stay even better than home. Felt incredibly safe and secure - I left my room unlocked and had no qualms at all.
The food was a tantalising delight and catered for all out needs, wants and desires.
The HOME was heaven - beautifully and tastefully decorated in tune with the environment. The flora and fauna an education in itself.
Location was easy distance to the beach, shops, nightlife and all Seminyak has to offer.
Loved being cocooned in the arms of Aliya!
What I liked least - my stay was not long enough.
an oasis for your soul
Villa Aliya on arrival is a magical mix of sight, taste and welcoming staff
who are truly thrilled to have you staying here.
The villa has an amazing location and supreme services available to you as
little or often as you wish...wishing that's one way to explain the sheer ease
and delight as the staff deliver your every whim you may desire.
If you feel the need to sooth your soul and reconnect with some special
people in your life and share laughter, food and bliss this is your OASIS.
Let your days be filled and hectic or lay and soak in the alluring atmosphere
it is totally up to you.
Devine, divine, divine. I can't imagine sleeping in any other bed in Bali...
I think I have found peace with my soul.
Staying at Villa Aliya you will find your heart again, your body and mind will
be in harmony and your special friends and the memories that have been
made will be treasured from
this place and time forever.... yes it's true.
Villa Aliya is amazing
We stayed here for a week with a few friends, including two babies. The location of the villa is perfect, within walking distance from top Seminyak bars, restaurants and the beach. The villa is absolutely beautiful... very comfortable and big. There are so many different spots to hang out. Some days we didn't even need (or want) to leave. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and provide delicious Balinese food. The Balinese banquet/feast is a MUST! I can't wait to go back. Although, the pool is not so safe for toddlers...
A memorable experience
I stayed a villa Aliya with a group of friends to attend a wedding. The quality of the accommodation, food and staff was equal to any 5 star resort anywhere in the world and the beautiful staff looked after every small detail just as thouhg we were a part of their family. I loved the place and the atmosphere that was created by these beautiful people, thank you Ruby and all the gang, hope to be back soon, lots of love.
Eight of my best friends stayed at Villa Aliya and we were there all together to celebrate my partners 60th birthday. Together with Bagus and the other staff we planned the most amazing surprise party for him on the Sat. night. The staff helped me with food, dancers, music, lights ..everything and then they made the whole experience amazing because of their enthusiam and excitement to show off their culture and share their food with us.
Would highly recommend the Villa. The service was always 100%, the rooms were always clean, the food was always top class.
Bali does have hundreds of first class accomodation and we have stayed at quite a few but I must say Aliya does stand out for all of us BUT, like every other venture it is always down to the staff and the ones we have were what made our holiday so special.
We are all returning there again in November and are all really looking forward to it.
How the other half live!
From the moment we walked through the gate, we felt like we were in a dream!
This villa is breath taking and set the scene for our wedding wkend! We simply had the most amazing and memorable stay. With full-time staff and the best cooked meals - the staff were so friendly and we were not allowed to lift a finger. Villa Aliya is by far the most amazing villa we have stayed in. Perfect for 3/4 couples or even a family of 8.
Vill Aliya is in the perfect location as it is close to some of the best shopping in Seminyak.
We found Heaven in Villa Alyia!
I have stayed at 'Alyia' twice in the last 12months. The accomadation and decor is simply devine. The staff are courteous, professional, attentive and very discret. The food was fresh and so yummy (those freshly baked muffins for breaky went down a treat)! The location is right in the centre on Seminyak, down a private driveway, extremley private, quiet and yet feels miles away from the noise of what is Bali. We invited some friends for a Baliense Banquet night at the Villa and the staff did a amazing job decorating, attentive service, food was sensational. I would highly recommanded staying at Villa Alyia and my children and myself hope to stay there again sometime soon.
