The photos do not do justice to this villa, it is sooo comfortable. Every detail has been thought of to make your holiday more enjoyable, right down to a second water cooler on the second level.
The villa is sheltered by greenery and +2 metre high walls so it is very private. Located only 15 minutes from Seminyak it was ideal for our extended family of 6 to shop, eat out, go for a massage, etc. But you don't need to leave the villa to eat - with its own dedicated chef we only ate dinner out once. The food is one of the many highlights of this villa. The other is the service from the rotating house staff. Nothing was too much trouble being greeted with a morning coffee beside the pool, making a midday snack for our 6 year old and they were still there hours after we had gone to bed in the evening.
Tony, the owner, popped in every day to make sure we were ok - really appreciated. Offer him a seat and a beer and he will offer you advice and guidance for hours and was a wealth of knowledge even for us as seasoned Bali travellers.
The 3rd level bedroom is a teenagers dream away from the rest of the family.
Our only cautionary comment is that the stairs to the second and third level are steep (spiral). We had one guest with a knee issue and there was a bedroom on the ground floor for him, so it did not affect us.
This villa and its staff have set a standard such that our family no longer asks when they can go back to Bali, they ask when they can go back to Villa Zuma.

Two families with very young children stayed at Villa Zuma and we loved it.
We have travelled to Bali between 20 and 30 times in the last seven years, and Villa Zuma is now one of our favourites.
The villa is in peaceful Umalas, which means that we were only minutes away from the great dining and shopping in Seminyak.
The villa itself is spacious and very comfortable. We loved the lawn area and pool which allowed our young children to run around.
Eight staff were looking after us. The most amazing thing was the food. This is by far the best food we have ever had in a villa and is of great quality restaurant standard. Whether it was BBQ lobster to fish fingers and mash for the children. All the food is organic and this makes a big difference.
The villa staff and the owner, Tony, were able to take care of our every need and in some cases above and beyond - whether it was taking care of grocery shopping, to arranging in villa spa treatment, a yoga instructor to engaging the scooter rental people to advise them which bar we had had to leave the scooters at due to a cocktail too many,
Nick, the property management agent, and his team were also awesome. Extremely responsive. They took care of our long list of requirements ahead of arrival and with some of our requests they seriously went above and beyond,

I have stayed in many different countries all over the world, but this villa was one of the best places I have ever stayed. Not only was it even better than in the photos, it was immaculately kept and the attention to detail was amazing. The owner waited up for us to introduce himself and show us around the villa personally. He was so friendly and accommodating we immediately felt welcome and at home. The villa's decor was beautifully done in a traditional way and we all loved the huge king size beds with mosquito nets. This is the only time I have returned from Bali heavier than when I arrived! The food was almost the best part. Selecting from the menu each day was so much fun with help from the owners who gave advice on what was fresh and tastiest from the markets. We didn't eat out at all as there was no need to leave due to the variety and quality of the menu. It was also extremely affordable! The owners checked on us regularly throughout our stay and went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. We mentioned we were interested in doing yoga so they researched this for two days before finding someone who would visit us at our villa and even negotiated a price for us. The staff were wonderful and friendly, butt also unobtrusive. They appeared like magic with food or to check if we needed anything and they also lended a hand with our young children. We had spa treatments at our villa, all organised by the staff and it was so peaceful lying out on the huge balcony overlooking the swimming pool and gardens. The kids loved swimming in the pool and the kiddies pool was great. We will definitely return to this villa and are already looking into booking our next trip. I would recommend this villa to anyone and everyone and do not have one negative thing to say about it. We haven't stopped singing it's praised since returning home to australia.
