We had an amazing time during our stay at Istimewa. The house staff were very friendly and helpful, all meals were fantastic. Loved the Villa, the pool was fantastic and all the rooms all great. Location is also really great, very central and perfect access to all shopping and restaurants in Seminyak. Would highly recommend Istemiwa for a trip to Bali :) Thanks Anika! Kelly C
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your nice comment. We are truly happy to hear that you had a great time and hope to welcome you again soon. Warm regards, Anika, Ketut & the team of Villa Istimewa
We are three sisters stayed at Anika's beautiful home for a week. She has been a good host from the very start till end of the trip, and responded promptly to all emails regarding the booking. The villa is centrally located in the heart of Seminyak,where Eat Street and shopping a stone throw away! We are very pleased with the amenites and services delivered by the staff and house manager, where nothing is impossible. The villa is a combination of modern contemporary, yet still keeping it's traditional Balinese authenticity. Thanks Anika and team, for making our family's holiday beautiful.
We stayed in this villa in april 2014. Villa was as discribed and ideal location in Seminyak Our 1 year old daughter absolutley loved the pool and we could not keep her out. There is also a step down lounge room, with a window that looks straight into the pool, she thought this was also amazing that she could see us underwater from the lounge suite. Plenty of great food spots just a short walk from the villa gate, but if needed Ketut will cook up a storm for you from your villa, Her food was 10/10 We all have no issues in staying here again.
“Weekend in Istimewa Seminyak”
Beautiful hosts. Amazing location, 2 steps (literally) away from the heart and bustle of shopping haven.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Villa Istimewa and for your kind words. We hope to welcome you soon again, Warm regards, Anika & the team of Villa Istimewa
“Best pool ever!”
I recently stayed at Villa Istimewa with a few friends and it was the perfect villa for us. The lagoon style pool was fantastic and we each had our own private areas of the villa. Location was spot on with easy lane access to the main road or to the back road which led straight to Eat Street in Seminyak. Staff were friendly and we had massages in our villa every day. Great for adults but some of the stairs would be a little steep for young children.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your praising words and your constructive suggestion. We are planning to turn the massage room into a bedroom on ground level, so there would be two bedrooms without stairs involved for families with small children. We hope to welcome you again soon. Warm regards, Anika & the team of Villa Istimewa
The Staff here are brilliant. The villa is perfect for relaxing and located in a great area for shopping and restaurants. Katut the cook makes the best breakfast each morning and is happy to make lunch and dinner for days you dont want to go out. Her cooking is the best food I have had in Bali. Made the housekeeper keeps the place spotless and the gardener comes in everyday to ensure everything is clean and tidy. The security gaurds are great guys and only to happy to have a chat with you. We will be back. Thanks anika
Response from the owner Dear John, Thank you so much for staying with us and for sharing your experience here. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much. I would definitely agree that Ketut makes the best food in Bali. We really hope to welcome you soon again at Villa Istimewa. Warm Regards, Anika & the team of Villa Istimewa
Absolutely loved my stay at the fabulous Istimewa Seminyak. The property has a wonderful Balinese feel and boasts a fabulous pool surrounded by beautiful gardens. The property is tastefully decorated, very comfortable and spacious. Situated in a great central location, and although close to the hectic centre of Seminyak, once you step through the gates you're in a private oasis that provides a peaceful and relaxing environment. The beautiful staff really made the stay extra special, attending to every possible need. Would definitely recommend Istimewa Seminyak and will be back again.
Response from the owner Many thanks for your kind words, Michelle. We hope to see you soon again. Warm Regards Anika & the Team of Villa Istimewa
“Istimewa, the icing on the cake”
We are a family of 6, with 4 teenagers. We have been coming to Bali for several years now and have tried a variety of different accommodations, hotels, homes without staff, homes with staff and anything in between. Istimewa was finally what we were always looking for. A great location, in the heart of seminyak for those of us looking to shop, a walking distance or very, very cheap taxi ride to the beach for the early risers who wanted to get in as much body boarding as humanly possible, a fabulous staff that was as kind as they were efficient and helpful and finally a house and garden that brought us into the true balinese luxury of peace, calm and relaxation. We loved it and are planning are already planning our next visit there.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Nadja. We really hope to welcome you back at Villa Istimewa very soon. Greetings from Bali Anika & The team of Villa Istimewa
“We stepped into a little bit of paradise when we passed through”
Villa Istimewa is in a great location. It is really close to some great shops and the main road that goes through Seminyak all the way to Kuta. One of the great things about it is the privacy and quiet that you experience. It really is like a little oasis. I really liked the design and layout of the villa. It was not just one thing, but lots of little special touches, from the sloping bottomed swimming pool, to the sunken lounge that looked straight into the pool, to the spa area, the greenery, the timber feel of the villa, the quaint balconies for the bedrooms, the great staff and just the chilled out atmosphere of the whole villa. It really did tick a lot of boxes. It is a beautiful villa and so special that it definitely will leave a lasting and enjoyable impression for us.
I stayed at the villa for 3 nights, just over the last weekend, with 2 other families and our 5 children. Arriving at night, I was greeted by the magnificent view of the villa and the pool, and the lovely flowers growing in the garden and all around the house. Love the pool & the aquarium like window in the living room. It is great for both kids and adults!! Every morning, we have nice breakfast prepared by the cook by the pool, while the rooms are cleaned by the housekeeping. Some parts of the wooden flooring in the living area are a little worn out. You can feel the wood sinking in when you step on them but it did not bother us much. Overall, it is a superb place to stay in and I wish I had stayed longer.
