We had a wonderful stay at Villa Filo's Paradise. It was in fact paradise! Claire the owner was very quick to respond to my many enquiries, she was very helpful & made the whole process easy. Everything was seemless, Made the driver was there at the airport to meet us. Kadek & Made greeted us with a refreshing drink & made us feel very welcome. They were there to help & have a chat, but also gave us lots of privacy. Ozy & Agus, cleaned the pool & provided security & peace of mind during the night. The Villa itself is very spacious, very comfortable, super clean & beautifully decorated with so much attention to detail. Breakfast was great. Kadek cooked a meal for us, it was delicious. The coffee machine was an extra bonus too. We have no hesitation to recommend Villa Filo's, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again, Trish & family, Perth
Response from the owner So glad you loved our villa Trish. Thank you for the wonderful review and acknowledgement my fabulous family of staff. They spoil me like that too! Claire
“Be prepared to be blown away”
I have been very reluctant to write this review because the more people that know about this gem, the harder it will be to book, however it would be so very unfair to Claire and her team not to be acknowledged for the wonderful work they all do. So, here goes........There really is only one way to truly understand and appreciate the magic of Filos Paradise and that is to experience it for yourself. The bar will then be raised so high that anywhere else you stay will leave you completely underwhelmed. I am not kidding! You can read and be impressed by all these wonderful reviews as I was, but nothing can truly prepare you for the experience which will begin the moment you walk through those gates and are greeted by the 3 smiling faces of Kadek, Made and Ozi. If you dont instantly feel like you have arrived home then there is something very wrong with you. I booked Filos Paradise for the final leg of our Mother/Daughter Bali holiday after doing hours and hours of research on the internet to find the perfect place to stay. We spent 10 magnificent nights here and cried like babies when it was time to leave. The villa itself is massive, with 3 huge bedrooms each with its own large dressing room and fabulously appointed bathroom. The downstairs bedroom also has the addition of an outdoor bathroom with a waterfall shower which can also be accessed from the pool area. The kitchen is extremely well appointed with every possible appliance and utensil you would ever need including an awesome coffee machine, cooktop and oven (not that you would ever need those with Kadek's amazing cooking skills) and the much appreciated ice cold Fridge with icemaker which came in very handy for preparing the many cocktails we consumed. There is an extremely comfortable living and dining area downstairs and an additional living area upstairs if you have a large group and/or kids. The piece de resistance for us though was the amazingingly accommodating Kadek, for whom nothing was ever too much trouble. I swear that sometimes all I had to do was think about something I needed and it would materialise right before my eyes! Kadek will go above and beyond the call of duty time and time again to make your stay memorable. Her and Made's breakfasts are to die for, especially the delicious omelettes. She will cook you a sumptuous feast, with the help of Made, to rival the best Indonesian Restaurant (we did this twice). You will pay her (a very reasonable rate) for the food and her time and she will take care of every detail for you. She will shop for supplies for you, she will change money for you, she will even come shopping with you but be prepared for a longer than usual trip - Kadek is very popular amongst the locals and knows A LOT of people and they all seem to come from her village! She is always keen for a chat, if that's what you like and has a great command of the English language. We had many a blah blah blah session, however she also instinctively knows when to retreat and let you have your space. Kadek is extremely knowledgeable about the area and will recommend where to shop and book Restaurants, Bars and tours for you. We got her to book our tours and activities prior to arriving in Bali and were very happy with the result. Ozi is also an integral part of the team at Filos Paradise, cleaning the pool and tidying the garden every morning and staying onsite every night provided the reassurance and security we needed as two females travelling together. I could go on forever about the joys of this place and I am not ashamed to say that I would have be Filos number 1 fan. Do try it for yourself - you will definitely not be disappointed but please, just dont book it when I am ready to go back!
Response from the owner Linda thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am so glad you and your Mum enjoyed your stay. My wonderful staff are like family and I am very proud of them as they make the villa what it is. Do please come back but book early! Claire
“Home away from home!”
We have just returned from a week at Filos Paradise. I travelled with my husband and son and my best friend and her husband. From the moment we were met by Made at the airport, I knew I had made the right choice when contacting Claire, the owner, earlier in the year. Since making our booking, I have had great conversations with both Claire and the house manager Kadek. It's always a worry when you book online but Claire made everything so easy and answered any question I had. Before we even left Australia, Kadek had organised all of our day trips, cooking classes, dinners and massages in the Villa. On arrival at the Villa, Kadek and Made welcomed us with special wine cocktails (yummy) and cool towels. After settling in and a quick dip in the gorgeous pool, Kadek and Made presented us with home made spring rolls and Onions rings which were to die for. Later that night, Kadek cooked us a traditional Indonesian food with the best Satay sauce I have ever tasted. She is an amazing cook!!!! The Villa is just a few steps from all the shopping you need in Seminyak and just ten minutes from the beach. The rooms are massive with beautiful big bathrooms and air conditioning in every room. Made the driver is just a phone call away and was available anytime we needed . Agus kept the pool and yard spotless and also made us feel safe at night. He also kept us amused with his stories and beautiful personality. Kadek, Made and Agus were so friendly and really made our holiday feel like we were at our second home. During our stay, it was my best friends birthday. Kadek organised not one, but TWO cakes and decorated the villa as a surprise. It was just amazing. Lilly, the live in cat is just a cutie with a real personality. She loves to play and loves cuddles! I could go on forever about how fantastic Filo's Paradise is. Nothing has been left out. The Villa is modern and clean and spacious. The staff are just amazing and the location is perfect. WE can't wait to book our next trip back to Bali and we will be staying with Filos Paradise. There is no need to go anywhere else. It is Perfect. Thank you to Claire, Kadek, Made, Agus, Made and Lilly for your friendship and for giving us such wonderful memories!!!
“Outstanding in every way”
Claire has done an amazing job, with the Villa & it's amenities, it's location and it's amazing staff. I was met at the airport by a smiling Made - fabulous driver and a heart of gold. Waiting at the Villa Filo were Kadek & another Made with a welcome drink and spring roll snack. Nothing is too much to ask of her staff. Wonderful breakfasts, lots of tropical fruits. They will cook evening meals for you if you wish. The rooms are amazing - huge, with balconies, large dressing rooms and all have attached bathrooms. Rooms are all of equal size and wonderfully quiet. Flatscreens, cable TV from all over the world with something to please all age groups. The location is perfect. At the end of a quiet lane, but minutes away from shops, spas, restaurants and the beautiful Seminyak beach (great for early morning exercise) I cannot wait to return. I am highly recommending it to all my friends. Great job Claire!
“Location Location Location”
We have just returned from our stay at Villa Filos, and couldn't of been happier with our choice. This Villa had it all, beautiful staff, clean, fresh and modern facilities, which were all well maintained. The Villa is spacious with very large bedrooms and bathrooms. Kadek and Made did a wonderful job with our breakfast every morning with some awesome variety. The location was perfect and within walking distance of some great spas and restaurants. Jl Oberoi and its amazing shopping and restaurants are a 5min taxi drive away. The area is peaceful and the locals were friendly. Just the perfect start to our Bali adventure for 4 friends. Perfect for large groups and families. The booking process too was faultless and I enjoyed my interaction with Claire the owner, who couldn't of been more helpful. Will certainly return again. Thanks Claire
Myself and two friends...we are in our early 50's just spent 5 wonderful nights at Villa Filo. There is not one thing we could fault with this villa...the location is great...short walking distance to the beach...shops and restaurants...the bedrooms are huge with super comfortable beds...two lounges and a sunroom...great swimming pool and to top it off you can order beautiful home cooked meals. Often when booking on the internet what you see in the photo's isn't exactly what you get...these photo's do not do the villa justice...it is even better than the photo's...and the staff are wonderful. Thank you all for making our holiday extra special...and what value for money :)
“There are not enough words to describe how fabulous this Villa i”
We recently had 10 glorious days enjoying the generous and warm hospitality of the beautiful staff at the Villa. Kadek, Made, Agus and of course Lily totally spoilt us. Just looking at the pictures makes me wish I could just click my heels and be there right now :) Fresh cooked breakfasts every day, to-die-for home made spring rolls and sausage rolls in the afternoon, nothing was too much trouble. The beds were super comfortable, linen crisp, towels fluffy, toiletries all supplied - everything is thought of. The photos simply don't do the villa justice. There is nothing that we could fault about it. It's close to everything, but once we were inside our "paradise" we felt a million miles away from anything so we could just relax and get totally spoilt. Yes, the villa is truly worth it's 5 star rating but it's the superstar staff that make it memorable. Ps ask Kadek to whip us her fabulous roast chicken dinner when you are there - you won't regret it!
“The Best Villa in Bali”
This is definitely the best villa in Bali. I have stayed at many and this is the best built I have ever seen. All the 3 bedrooms are huge with huge walk in wardrobes and large beautiful Ensuites to all. Most villas give you one large bedroom and two small ones to fight over. Villa Filo's bedrooms/bathrooms are all huge. The outside bathroom (4th one on the property) is next to the pool which is perfect. The staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. You don't have to get up at a certain time to have breakfast, they will cook it for you whenever you like. It is in a quiet location but walking distance to everything. I could rave about this villa forever but have already told many of my friends who are now booking it which makes it hard for me to book when I want to go. So best not go on too much about how solid and well built this villa is. It really is the best villa I have stayed in. Thanks to the staff and the wonderful owner, Claire.
“Can't wait to return”
My wife and two teenage girls just had the most fantastic stay at Villa Filo's Paradise. The villa itself just blew us away. Everything about this villa was luxurious. The bedrooms and bathrooms were massive and the extra living area upstairs was perfect for the kids. Flat screen televisions in every room. Coffee machine and ice maker. Every possible appliance or gadget was on hand for the convenience of the guests. The owner Claire has done an amazing job with her home. Outside the villa is an awesome and very well maintained swimming pool that is surrounded by gorgeous bougainvillea and frangipani plants. The gazebo is a great spot for an afternoon nap. The heart of Seminyak, with it's many shops and restaurants is literally at your doorstep. La Sal Spanish restaurant just at the end of the street is highly recommended. The beach is also just a few minutes walk away. The manager Kadek and the rest of the staff (Made, Agus, Wayan and Made) were just sensational. Kadek will do everything possible to make your stay the best it can possibly be and we can't speak highly enough of the service they all provided. The breakfasts were delicious and the girls will cook other exquisite meals for you if you request. There is a driver on hand, tours can be organised and laundry will be taken care of. You will not have to worry about anything. My family had a truly wonderful holiday at Villa Filo's Paradise and we can't wait to return for another visit next year. See you then!!
“Best Villa with absolutely fantastic amenities and service”
We have stayed in a number of villas in Bali over recent years and Filo' is superior in every way. The genuine warmth of our welcome by all the Staff made us feel at home instantly. They continued to provide us with highly professional and cheerful standard of service for each day of our holiday, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts and other meals provided were delicious. The villa is very spacious and has every piece of high quality equipment that you could require. The pool was very well maintained and the property was kept spotless. The bedrooms were very spacious and the lounge areas very comfortable. The location is excellent with everything in easy reach. We can not think of any negatives about this property. We would like to thank Claire for her kind consideration of our situation at the time of our booking and congratulate her on what she has provided with the villa. Thank you Kadek, Made, Agus and Lily from making our holiday so enjoyable. Thanks also to Made, The driver for his friendly service. We would not hesitate to recommend Filo's Paradise to anyone looking for a great holiday villa.
