It’s a near-impossible task maintaining a 5-star review rating across Airbnb, TripAdvisor, Bookings.com and Agoda. But for two years we have made it our mission to make every single guest, their friends and family happy and satisfied with choosing Villa Koru for their perfect Bali Holiday.
We would stay again in a heart beat.
Wow, what can say. Airbnb need to come up with a six star rating just for this place. The villa is stunning with a fantastic pool. The photos don't do it justice. Michael was a fantastic host and even upgraded his cable package so I could watch the World Cup. We would stay again in a heart beat.
Would stay here again
Michael is a very efficient host with prompt and helpful information during booking process. The villa is as described and as shown in the photographs, although some of the fixtures could do with some attention, especially taps and showers in the bathrooms. All the villa staff are very friendly and helpful, with a special mention to Putu for his driving and to Mia who works very hard to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible and keeps the villa running in all respects. We did have a couple of problems during our stay, one was with the water supply and the other was with flooding in one of the bedrooms during heavy rain storm, but with Mia’s help they were resolved quite quickly. Would stay here again if we returned to Bali.
Villa Koru absolutely amazing. Pictures are accurate and Villa within good distance from restaurant and bars. Housekeeper Mia went above and beyond to make our stay extraordinary. Would indeed recommend and hope to stay here again in the future.
Villa Koru is simply the best!
Simply the Best! We were fortunate enough to enjoy a 2 week stay at Villa Koru over the recent New Year period. Our group included people from Vietnam, New Zealand and various places throughout Australia, so, months in advanced planning was required. From the onset of booking I knew I had made the right decision as Michael is a thorough and thoughtful host with rapid responses - nothing like a confidence booster when catering for an array of personalities... Villa Koru itself is beautiful. From the style, comfort, cleanliness, convenience to it’s location. Included extras like breakfast, UE boom speaker, Scooter and large TVs with netlix were all well received. The wifi is outstanding. A huge, clean pool basking in all day sun situated in a private yard while surrounded by a secluded quiet neighbourhood, all this only a 10min scooter ride from the heart of Seminyak and Legian - all the boxes are ticked here. With a great Villa comes great staff. Mia, Yunis, Putu and Kadek were all supberb, Mia runs a tight ship and nothing at all was in any way a problem. I stayed in contact with Mia via Whatsapp throughout and any questions or requests were answered or catered to immediately. The staff were conscientious and thorough all the while enjoying a laugh, we felt we were in safe hands always.. this team was the icing on the cake. Villa Koru is simply the best! Not one single negative comment from myself, fellow guests or visitors alike, our next visit to Bali will depend on the availablity of this Villa - you will not be disappointed.
We don’t want to ever stay anywhere other than Villa Koru again!
I don’t even know where to start with how amazing our stay at Villa Koru was these past 8 nights. Firstly, Michael really is a SUPER host and goes above and beyond in his communication and providing you with everything you could possibly need in the lead up to your trip. He also checks in to make sure everything is as expected with the villa and service provided, and is easily contactable for anything we needed. The villa is perfectly clean is even more beautiful in real life. The pool is huge and all rooms are nice and big. The bathrooms are so stunning and beautifully decorated, aircon works great. It feels so comfortable and the layout of perfect! Putu, the villas driver is so lovely and picked us up from the airport to take us to villa (which is complimentary upon booking). We also were able to reach out to Putu for whenever we needed a driver and if he was not available he would organise another driver for us within a matter of minutes. And lastly our favourite, beautiful housekeeper Mia!! Mia is an angel and made our trip so far beyond anything we had experienced before. She greeted us every morning with the most beautiful smoothie bowls with fruit, a fresh juice, eggs and toast which was cooked any which way you liked. Mia also went to the shops for us to get bacon, mushrooms etc for omelettes as per our request. She is so accommodating and makes you feel so comfortable and at home, nothing is ever too big or too small of a request, from laundry, shopping, ordering food, organising drivers, coming from home to let us in the villa when we locked ourselves out (sorry Mia!!). We are going to miss our Mia so much!! We don’t want to ever stay anywhere other than Villa Koru again! Thank you guys for everything and we will see you soon!!
Would definitely recommend Villa Koru
Great and lovely stay at Villa Koru. Villa is kept very clean and tidy by Mia and her team. Gardens and pool kept spotless too. Breakfast served by Mia and her colleague always a welcome in the morning. Plenty of pool towels and bath towels and lots of help with local knowledge from the team that look after Villa Koru. Good location near plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Food delivery also works well to the location of the villa. Michael the owner is very responsive to any requests or questions. Thank you Mia and Team for a great relaxing stay with our family. Would definitely recommend Villa Koru.
Tres belle villa
Tres belle villa. La communication avec michael a ete parfaite. Merci a Mia qui a ete aux petits soins.
Would definitely recommend this villa
We absolutely enjoyed our week at villa Koru. Mia was fantastic, her breakfasts were amazing and the villa totally met all of our expectations. We would definitely recommend this villa, and would be happy to return on our next Bali holiday!
I’ll definitely book Villa Koru again
Micheal’s villa is beautiful in every way. All the amenities that you would want and expect are there. Especially Mia, who looks after the house and you, is the best. She made our stay even better. She makes the best breakfast in the morning and if you want (and you should) she’ll cook you a great local meal in the evening. You can ask her anything, from booking tours, transportation, you name it and she’ll arrange it. The house is lovely with a big pool and has really great maintained garden. Bedrooms are big, clean and really nicely decorated. The beds sleep well and the bathrooms are big and clean as well. The house had traditional details and feels really spacious. Micheal himself is a great host who’ll give you loads of intel before arriving, so that everything is set and you feel that you know where to go and how to get around. He’ll respond to any questions you may have and tries to arrange everything so you’re stay is as comfortable as possible. I’ll definitely book villa Koru again when coming back to Bali. It’s location is great and it feels luxurious and really comfortable.
We would definitely book again when we return to Bali
Villa Koru is exactly what you see in the pictures. The place is beautiful, cleaned daily and the rooms and bathrooms are huge. The pool was never cold anytime of day, it gets the best sun, nice areas around the pool to chill out. Mia is the one of the best things about the villa, she arrives in the morning to make you breakfast and clean your rooms and the villa without you really noticing, she's like a ninja, same as the gardener. We requested some extra items with our breakfast and it wasn't any trouble, we just fixed her up daily for the cost. Before it gets dark, Mia comes back to turn all the lights on in your room and light all the mosquito candles around the villa and the pool, it looks beautiful. We would definitely book again when we return to Bali.
Out of this world!
Villa Koru was beautiful and exactly as described. Michael was very responsive before and during our stay and provided insightful information about Bali. Mia's breakfast was better than any hotel meals and her home cooked meal was out of this world! Also Putu was such a wonderful driver we were sad to say goodbye. Definitely recommend Villa Koru.
Great villa with amazing staff
Great villa with amazing staff. The communication with Michael was excellent and can recommend the villa to anybody.
Will definitely be staying again
Amazing villa! Beautiful pool and great staff. They have thought of everything, nothing was an issue! Mia made beautiful breakfast every morning and helped with anything we needed. Very clean, comfortable and relaxing! Will definitely be staying again.
A gorgeous oasis
Villa Koru is a gorgeous oasis that we looked forward to returning to after each excursion. The tropical garden and pool were just beautiful. The accommodation was amazing! Huge comfortable beds, lovely airy bathrooms, stylish furnishings. The lovely Mia just made our stay perfect. Our daughters friend had her birthday while at the villa and Mia surprised her with a cake and flowers. Thank you for making our Bali Holiday so memorable.
The best meal of the trip – would absolutely recommend!!!!!
Our stay at Villa Koru was better than expected! We would highly recommend. The home is beautiful furnished with plenty of space (four guests,) one couple shared a room and two other rooms had one person each. The rooms were spacious and clean, with gigantic beds, each room was fit with great air conditioning and smart tvs and each had their own beautiful outdoorsy full bathroom/ en-suite with shower, bath toilet and double vanity. Additional to the other toilet area. The salt water pool was massive and to die for, we did not want to leave the pool !! They also had large bean bags and lounge chairs and of course our blow up friend ‘Florence’ the flamingo. The open space area had everything you needed including complimentary fruit juice on arrival and filtered water. The open space was cool fit with a strong portable fan and a large ceiling fan, we did not feel hot but comfortable considering the Bali heat! This space also including large lounge furniture dining table and smart tv. We took up the offer of organising massages at the villa and boy what a treat! Mia our wonderful housekeeper organised it all for us, no hassle. With the talented masseuses visiting three times in a week for 1 hour full body I can confidently say we all went home feeling super relaxed! We also took up the offer of Mia cooking us a BEAUTIFUL traditional Indonesian dinner, of delicious family recipes, which blew our minds and was by far the best meal of the trip - would absolutely recommend!!!!! The villa would not be complete if I did not mention the wonderful staff Putu and Mia, Putu ensured our pool was cleaned and transferred us from and to the airport, his bubbly friendly personality and local advice was very useful and entertaining, we enjoyed having him around. Mia is the core reason we enjoyed our stay at Villa Koru, she kept us well fed, kept all space impeccably tidy and clean. She brought us groceries when needed, gave us local tips and organised any transport or additional needs that we needed. She is fantastic! Each morning Mia cooked us a delicious breakfast including smoothie bowls different each day, a fresh juice and eggs your way with toast and some sides, fantastic way to start each day. She made our stay so easy and carefree. Michael (host) communicated very effectively and responded very quickly to any queries. From direction through the airport to providing the contact details for all staff, his organisation and communication really streamlined the process from booking to checkout. Michael also allowed us additional late check out, which we greatly appreciated! Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home, we will be back again soon!!
Michaels villa is absolutely amazing! Everything from the huge clean rooms, to the amazing sun soaked pool and the daily breakfast cooked by Mia ensured we had a great holiday in Bali. Michael was very informative leading up to our trip in Bali and gave great recommendations on places to eat, transport, money exchange and booking tours. I highly recommend Komang who is the driver affiliated with the villa. Komang’s service is exceptional and he was always happy to accomodate our plans. All 6 of us who stayed here had such a great time and would highly recommend this villa to any friends or family.
We've just spent an amazing week at this outstandingly beautiful villa! Set in lovely gardens with a much larger than average pool, this is a pure gem! It is tucked away down a quiet lane, but really close to all amenities. From the moment we stepped through the gates, after being welcomed by our lovely host, Michael and his housekeeper, Mia, we fell totally in love with the place.The decor was very modern, but very traditional too and obviously very well thought out, with comfort high on the list! Which brings me to the bedroom. The bed was the largest we have ever slept in, a Super King I believe and so amazingly comfortable. We were astonished at the amount of toiletries in the bathroom, (which was great, as I had forgotten my shampoo and conditioner!) The bath was deep and freestanding and there was also a powerful separate shower, as well as everywhere being spotlesslly clean too. Our host Michael, couldn't do enough for us and nothing was too much trouble. He had such a wealth of knowledge about the local areà, which was extremely helpful. He recommended some great restaurants, from 'high end' to casual 'drop ins',for some amazing food! We were also pointed in the right direction to some superb beaches. On a couple of evenings, Michael, with the help of Mia, prepared some delicious traditional meals for us, which we sat and ate surrounded by candle lit lanterns scattered throughout the villa gardens. So relaxing and romantic! One thing is certain, we will definitely be retuening ro Villa Koru really soon. This villa, without any doubt, is the 'jewel in the crown ' of all villas!! Thanks you so much Michael and Mia for our unforgettable stay there and for making us feel so special.
In all my years traveling and staying in numerous countries for both business and pleasure, I have never had a stay like this!!! From start to finish the service was truly outstanding, everything is taken care of. The smallest of details really make the bigger picture. We arrived late on the right and all we wanted to do was sleep and unpack in the morning. The rooms are wonderfully spacious, ultra clean and the beds... Oh dear lord the bed. Soooo comfortable! We were greeted by Mia when we arrived and nothing was too much for this lady. I highly recommend anyone to sample their home cooking as Mia and Michael gave us a fantastic taste of Indonesia. A delicious traditional lightly spiced chicken soup for starters followed a mouth watering beef rendang. As if the food and candle lit meal wasn't enough, they had their own in house cocktail mixologist that produced some of the best cocktails we've had anywhere! Try the frozen daiquiri or their espresso martinis made with local coffee. Nothing was ever too much for this crew and the insight we were given prior to arriving was absolutely first class! Informative e mails explaining best places to eat, beautiful places to go and right down to the small things like the best places to get money changed. Literally no stone was left unturned and by the time it came to us leaving Mia & Michael made the most special of gestures... My parents were staying at villa koru with myself and my wife and it had been 4 years since we'd all been together. When my Mother had told Mia that she was really going to miss the quiet nights with the family, the candle lit lanterns round the pool and cocktails, on us leaving my parents were given two of the lanterns to remember villa Koru and our family stay. This level of care and attention to guests is clearly the reason Villa koru has a flawless rating. I could honestly write an essay on the place as there were so many things that impressed us on so many levels. Myself and my wife will be in bali again in 6 weeks and we've already booked up for a second stay. Thank you so much Villa Koru you made our holiday and family reunion a absolutely magical stay!!! 6* rating! See you again soon!
Villa Koru was great
Our stay at Villa Koru was great. The house was lovely, in a great location, and the staff was very attentive. The villa was a huge part of making our trip to Bali so enjoyable!
I spent quite some time looking for the perfect accommodation for my Seminyak stay in Bali. I wanted everything perfect, villa style, location, service etc. and let me just say, all expectations I had were WELL AND TRULY exceeded by Villa Koru. The villa itself is unbeatable, I promise you won't find a better one for value. Modern yet traditional, spotless, every amenity at your feet. The layout of the villa itself is a private sanctuary. Sun hits the entire villa all day as there are no building overshadowing it. It's in a quiet, secluded area - yet a 6 minute walk from all the hustle and bustle (the famous Bintang Supermarket etc.) The staff (Mia the villa maid and Putu the driver) always made sure our villa was spotless. There was nothing out of place ever, not a spec of dirt, our beds were made daily and the villa was cleaned twice a day. Breakfast every morning was sensational Two-courses of a healthy fruit bowl and scrambled eggs with coffee and freshly squeezed juice. Every night we came home to a clean villa with every candle lit/ All staff went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible, even when we required assistance out of hours they were there for us instantly and helped to book us restaurants or sunset spots etc. 5 stars simply is not enough for Villa Koru. Will definitely be back here again in the near future. HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!
Villa Koru was a dream for our party of 5
Villa Koru was a dream for our party of 5 (plus infant). We were a family of four with two young children plus grandparents and while the villa is not itself equipped for babies or young children, we found it worked perfectly for our party and that our stay exceeded our expectations. Mia, the housekeeper, was an amazingly gracious host. She greeted us on arrival with fresh fruit juice and had set up the hired baby equipment before our arrival, which was such a help as it meant I could quickly put the baby down for a much needed rest. The three bedrooms are very well equipped and the finishes are really high quality. The beds are big and super comfortable and the airconditioning powerful! The pool is bigger than many in the area and was sparkling clean. The gardens are beautiful and the living space very comfortable. Breakfasts made each morning by Mia were amazing - a combination of smoothie bowl and eggs with toast, always accompanied by fresh juice. Such a treat! The Villa is centrally located, though just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak, so it was also very quiet and serene. Easily walkable for all your needs. All in all, a wonderful stay and great value!
Villa Koru -- from Michael, Mia, and Putu to the villa itself -- was top notch. Excellent location, hard working and friendly staff, and the well kept villa made our stay very enjoyable.
It was more than we could have wished for!
We really appreciated our stay at Michael’s villa. It was more than we could have wished for! The staff (Putu and Mia) was amazing and they really took care of us. Communication was on point and they helped us with transfer and with any kind of questions we had. The villa & pool was really nice, clean and the breakfast smoothie bowls were to die for! This was the best villa we’ve stayed at in Bali and we can’t wait to be back! Thank you once again Michael, Mia & Putu for your hospitality. See you soon!
Hope to be able to come back again soon
Villa Koru is a fantastic place to stay, Mia the house keeper does everything from cooking a great breakfast to cleaning up the Villa. Pool is clean large and has sun all day. Beds comfortable and air conditioning works great, hope to be able to come back again soon, Michael an excellent host.
The beds are the most comfortable we’ve ever slept on
We were sad to leave our previous Villa in Seminyak, thinking we would miss it. However, as soon as we stepped into Villa Koru, the only thought that crossed our minds was “um...what other villa?!” Villa Koru is extraordinary. From the massive pool, to the beautiful open planned living area, to the luxurious bedrooms and private bathrooms, it blew our minds. The beds are the most comfortable we’ve ever slept on, with excellent air-conditioning. Everything in the villa was exceptionally clean, and the bathrooms were set up more like a luxe day spa!! Our house keeper Mia was amazing. Nothing was a hassle for her, she prepared the most delicious breakfasts: best smoothie and granola bowls ever! She was so kind and hospitable, and made our stay even more comfortable. Everything about Villa Koru is more than fantastic, we can not wait to come back and stay here again!
I will stay this villa again in the next trip in Bali!
I really recommend this villa. Rooms are clean and beautiful. The pool as well. This area is quiet, but good access to the convenience store, super market, restaurants, and some cafes including Starbucks. A host, house keeper and drivers are so kind. They always hosted us with smiles and full of hospitality. Their kindness and support made our stay wonderful. The breakfast Mia made was pretty good like a 5stars restaurant one. We enjoyed watching Netflix, swimming in the pool, drinking and taking a nap at the poolside. It was definitely an amazing experience. I will stay this villa again in the next trip in Bali! Thanks Michael, Mia, and putu!!
Breakfast is delicious
The correspondence is quick and courteous. Breakfast is delicious. I could spend a relaxing and wonderful time. Thank you.
Villa Koru exceeded all our expectations!
Villa Koru exceeded all our expectations! The Villa was beautiful, private, quiet, comfortable and in a great location!! Michael was a fantastic host, very responsive and gave us some terrific suggestions of restaurants which were all top notch! We will be sure to stay here again on our next visit to Bali!!
Amazing villa, amazing communication & superb housekeeping
Arriving on a late flight, meeting our driver and then being greeted by our housekeeper Mia upon arrival all went very smoothly and the villa looks amazing at night with all the lights and lots of mozzie coils to make your stay very enjoyalble. Michael’s communication and tips he sends prior to arrival are amazing and he really makes extra effort to provide little extras that make your stay easy. Fresh cold drinking water is available in the villa and ice. Mia makes breakfast every day and cleans the villa beautifully and assists with any problems or extras you require - Mia, thank you so much for all the help you gave our family. Mia organised private massages in the villa for us which were amazing. The villas location is in a very quiet part of Seminyak, which is lovely at night to escape the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. We did use a lot of taxis but this was very affordable thanks to Michaels suggestion of using the Grab app - taxis were $3 no matter where we went and of course Michael can organise a driver for a while day. We travelled with our teenage children aged 15 & 16 and they both enjoyed the villa, having that extra space compared to hotel rooms was fantastic. Thanks again Michael for all your help.
Fantastic villa, 3 great bedrooms and great pool, good communal area as well. Staff were great.
Kortom voor iedereen een aanrader
Van het moment van reserveren tot het einde van het verblijf, alles was perfect geregeld. Micheal beantwoorden alle vragen, gaf tips en advies. De villa zag er mooi en schoon uit en het zwembad was geweldig. Mia en Yannick zijn 2 lieve meiden die je ontbijt verzorgen, alles schoonmaken en massages regelen, gewoon wat je vragen ook zijn... ze zorgen ervoor. Wij hadden ook Putu ( chauffeur en auto) erbij geboekt, ideaal! Kortom voor iedereen een aanrader... Villa Koru.
We had such a wonderful time
Thank you Michael for being a great host. Yanik did a wonderful job making our delicious breakfast every morning, cleaning our rooms and beautiful villa. Putu our driver is truly amazing! he took very good care of us on the days we wanted to explore the island. We had such a wonderful time and look forward to visiting Bali soon!!!
An amazing experience I hope everyone gets to enjoy one day
Best experience! We have never been to Bali before and was unsure what to expect. Michael is very accommodating, expecting all of our needs before we knew they were needs. He was also very quick with responses. The villa is absolutely beautiful. By requested the villa can provide transportation with additional charge, which is most definitely worth every penny. Putu who was our driver has become one of my favorite people. He was knowledgable about areas that we were interested in seeing while in Bali. No Ubers in Bali so having a car drive us around whenever we wanted was absolutely key. One thing I’m glad we paid for. Yanik who was the housekeeper is so kind and pleasant, fulfilling our every need. It was an amazing experience to be able to come home after a day of adventure to her having already “setting the mood” at the villa. Oh and breakfast every morning also was great. I also definitely recommend getting some messages at the villa by masseuses that drive to you. Once again an amazing experience I hope everyone gets to enjoy one day.
The villa itself is absolutely stunning
Where do I even start! The villa itself is absolutely stunning. Incredible set out, immaculate pool, huge rooms with amazing bathrooms. Comfortable beds and whatever you would think to need they have provided, making the stay very comfortable and easy. Michael is incredibly helpful with suggestions and organising things you need, and very quick to do so. The staff of the villa are also wonderful and kind. Keeping it clean at all times and preparing lovely breakfast every morning. We were definitely sad to leave, but from now every time we return we wouldn’t think to stay anywhere else!
All I can say is WOW!!
All I can say is WOW!! My friends and I just had the most amazing 5 nights at Villa Koru, the place and the staff were outstanding. I am so going to miss everything about this little gem of a place. Breakfast every morning was just so lovely and our driver looked after our every need. Michael is so easy to get in touch with and was very patient with all our queries. We will be back for sure!
Definitely staying there again for my next trip!
Great place for any kind of trip in bali! The villa is awesome and has everything you need and looks even better in real life. Location is great, there are shops, cafes and restaurants in walking distance. In addition, you will be taken care of amazing staff which will be able to make your trip something very special. Definitely staying there again for my next trip!
Airbnb need to come up with a six star rating just for this place
Wow, what can say. Airbnb need to come up with a six star rating just for this place. The villa is stunning with a fantastic pool. The photos don't do it justice. Michael was a fantastic host and even upgraded his cable package so I could watch the World Cup. We would stay again in a heart beat.
We will definitely be returning
Thanks for the first class hospitality, Michael! Our second visit to Villa Koru was even better than the first and that is a pretty amazing achievement! Villa Koru has all the appointments that make for a relaxing and entertaining stay; king sized beds with comfortable mattresses, quality Bluetooth speakers in each room, huge TV in front of a massive lounge. Your local knowledge and recommendations for the best restaurants, spas and tours helped us make the most of our time, and enjoy an incredible holiday We will definitely be returning.
Finally found the perfect villa in Bali
The best villa me and my friends have stayed in up till now. Michael and his staffers went all out to make sure we were set up properly for a good relaxing holiday. Beds were perfect, the size of the room itself was large, beds were made and everything was clean daily. A short walk from the villa brings you to the main road but if you're up for a walk, you'll find many eateries up the road. Bike rental was seamless as well from Michael and he even helped stock up the fridge with what we wanted so we wouldn't need to haul it from the grocery store after we land. Breakfast was yummy and healthy and comes with eggs and coffee. Staff were always friendly and were ready to help if we needed anything. Pool was the best feature. Loved the layout of the villa. Villa Koru has now become my favourite villa in Bali.
The Villa’s location is around 10 min by foot from restaurants, bars and shops
We spend 7 nights at Villa Koru and all of them were a delight. As soon as you walk into the Villa you feel immediately an amazing ambiente. Everything is decorated with so much love and an eye for detail. Communication with the host could not have been easier, he helped with every question we had in no time and gave us many good advices and always went out of his way to make our stay perfect. So do the housekeeper Yanik and the driver Putu. We could not have hoped for better people to help around the Villa, they were kind, helpful and respectful. Every morning we got a delicious homemade breakfast by Yanik (Fresh fruit bowl with yogurt and granola and some eggs with toast) . The Villa offers so many great features and everything is as mentioned in the Airbnb post if not even better. Just to mention that the bathrooms are designed in the balinese style (open bathrooms) which allows you to have sometimes company of geckos or other insects. The highlight of the Villa was the big and very clean pool and the massage tables. Whenever we wanted a Massage we just told Yanik and she organised that they come to our privat Villa - could not ask for better service! The Villa's location is around 10 min by foot from restaurants, bars and shops and very close to the main road what helps avoid the traffic jams. But if you are a light sleeper it might be little noisy due to the street. Other than that great few days and would go back whenever I visit Bali again.
Ideal holiday location – The best part of my entire holiday was THIS villa
When I walked in after a long flight, my jaw DROPPED and I could not stop smiling. It already looked beautiful in photos, but it exceeded my expectations. Villa Koru is unlike any place I have ever stayed. Beautiful, serene, intimate but with plenty of space for everyone to do what they want. It is incredibly clean and immaculately kept by the fantastic staff. Yanic went above and beyond, by helping to organise beautiful flower baths, making us an amazing breakfast every morning and helping to arrange massages at the villa. Michael was incredibly helpful, kind and informative. He provided us with truly fantastic tips that lead to us having some amazing experiences in Bali. He also helped us to organise a private driver, which made a huge difference to our experience. He was polite, friendly, flexible and more than happy to give advice and tips on amazing things to do. The beds were huge, comfortable, the linen was clean and fresh and amazing. I took the time to unpack everything, just so I could completely enjoy the space. Attached to each room is the indoor/outdoor bathroom, with large tubs and outdoor showers. Again- breath taking. I miss that bathroom so much. The pool is beautiful, particularly the view from it as the sunsets and the moon rises in the beautiful sky above. Kitchen is gorgeous, well stocked with utensils and the staff can either help you organise takeaway or groceries if you want to cook for yourself. TV is lovely, couch is huge! Internet might be better than what I have at home. I would happily go back just to hang out in the villa and relax. Thank you so much, Michael and staff. You have an amazing place, and I cannot wait to return. (Really, go. It's so good. Yanic was even great enough to accommodate my fussy eating! 10/10 would recommend!)
Incredible. Deserves more than 5 stars
Heaven is a place on earth. It sounds corny, but there's no other way to describe Villa Koru. The villa itself is beautiful, comfortable, very clean and conveniently located. Despite its location, the villa was quiet day and night, and we werent bothered by the general noises you would expect in a busy city. Michael and his staff have made sure every amenity imaginable is accounted for. The rooms are truly superb, and if you are unlucky enough to encounter any issues, the staff are on it straight away. The pool was incredible, and much of our holiday was spent lounging by or in it. We also organised a massage at the villa, which I wpuld highly recommend. The daily breakfasts were wonderful, and Yanic, the housekeeper was so welcoming and accommodating. We ate in at the villa a number of times, which was so easy to do with the full kitchen. Michael helped us to organise a private driver for our week in Bali, who was also so accommodating, flexible and knowledgeable about the area, acting as an impromptu tour guide. Michael as a host, was amazing. Leading up to our holiday he answered question after question from my group, providing fabulous recommendations, great advice, and top notch service. Michael was extremely helpful and very responsive, answering all emails so quickly. We stayed for 6 nights, and it was not long enough. I am already trying to find a way to get back there as soon as possible. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
We had a great time and highly recommend this villa!
Villa is clean, modern and comfortable. Place is at a nice, quiet yet convenient location. Perfect place to stay with friends or family. Comfy beds, big bathrooms, great swimming pool equipped with deck chairs and massage beds.. the list is endless... Pretty near airport (30mins) and great restaurants around Seminyak. Host is responsive and helpful and accommodative to our requirements (check-in and check-out time, driver arrangement etc). Provided tons of tips before and during our trips... We had a great time and highly recommend this villa!
We had the best time ever
Everything was pefect. The Kings size beds were amazing we all slept like babies. The staff and host went out of their way to make our trip memorable. We had the best time ever. Highly recommend.
Would definitely recommend!
Michael’s place is clean and very well laid out. We were served a healthy breakfast every morning which certainly helped to start our days right. We were able to get around quite easily during our stay, with the villa being a short drive from the hotspots in Seminyak like Ku de ta and Potatohead. Would definitely recommend!
Beautiful villa and great living area and clean and big pool! Yanik was very kind and made a good breakfast. Michael responded quickly and was very helpful which made the communicatie very pleasant. Highly recommended
It’s excellent place,we feel very comfortable.
A level of convenience that we didn’t even know to look for
This was our first time in Bali, and Michael’s place was a major key to the success of the trip. The hospitality is amazing. Very friendly, dedicated staff provides an amazing breakfast and cleaning services every day. The accommodations were perfect for our group of six. And the pool was clean and well-suited for swimming and hanging out. Most outstandingly, when we had an unusually heavy rain (middle of january does get some rain every day, but not enough to dampen the overall fun to be had) Michael personally made sure that we had everything we needed to get by in those few hours. For example, he brought us lunch and beer, so we didn’t have to traverse the flooded street that morning! All of the food nearby was worth a try, the local food is very tasty and affordable. Alcohol is expectedly expensive. Plenty of good shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Nearby Ku de Ta, Potato Head, and Finn offer a variety of oceanside bar and restaurant venues for enjoying the scenery. Please note, during rainy season, the tides bring in litter from local waters onto the beaches (at least we saw a lot of that on the Seminyak coast) Overall, great experience! And largely because of Michael’s place! Many aspects of it, like the high elevation and the outdoor massage tables, added a level of convenience that we didn’t even know to look for, and that is likely not found in many other places in that area.
I would definitely recommend this villa
The villa is amazingly beautiful , well maintained and has a lot of 5 star facilities/services. The breakfast served (which is complementary) in the morning is super delicious. It consists of egg and toast, fruit bowls with yoghurt and nuts, and a glass of juice. The staff is always ready to help. The market is very nearby to the villa (approximately 5-10 mins from the villa). There are n number of restaurants vegetarian/vegan/non-vegetarian near the villa. I would definitely recommend this villa to everyone.
Massive beds you could fit about five people in
Had a fantastic time at villa koru! The housekeeper Yanik was amazing and so friendly and could not of helped us anymore. The bedrooms were all fantastic, with massive beds you could fit about five people in - the beds were also made on a daily basis. The living room and kitchen was really modern and has everything you needed from a large plasma to big speakers. The pool was a great size too. Will definitely be coming back here again. Thank you for having us 🙂
I really enjoyed my stay here, I wish it was for longer. Michael is an incredible host who knows all the best places in Bali! It also help thats the rooms are very spacious, with comfortable beds and private bathrooms. If you stay too you'll really enjoy your time in / by the pool!
This is a great house with excellent service. The communication with Michael was great and Yanik was a lovely housekeeper who was extremely attentive. I would definitely stay here again.
Really appreciate the hospitality
Our stay in Villa Koru was great, the design of the villa is very stylist. Michael is very approachable and trying his best to make our stay comfortable. On the 1st night, i need to stay in the villa alone as my 2 other friends going to hike mount batur. As i dont get used to stay in the huge villa alone, i asked the Yani (the helper) to stay with me for the night. She ended up accompanying me at the villa with her son that was sick at the moment. Really appreciate the hospitality. Thanks Michael!
Great villa for up to 6 people, beautifully landscaped, amazing pool, air conditioned bedrooms, private and secure. Excellent service from the housekeeper and driver. Michael was a fantastic host, very helpful and informative. Got back to me quickly and was very accommodating with planning our stay.
Love the breakfast fruit bowls
I stayed there for two nights with my friends. I love everything about the villa! It is very clean and it looks just like the pictures. I had fun in the big pool along with the swan floaties the villa provided. I especially love the breakfast fruit bowls and the juice! Michael is very helpful with checking in and providing information about the place. I would definitely come back.
I would definitely recommend his villa
Michael was a wonderful host. I would definitely recommend his villa to anyone.
They make a mean breakfast
A great place to stay for a big fam or any groups. They make mean breakfast every day. Quiet hood but not too far drive from the lively Seminyak.
The Villa has a great pool and nice extras
Quite location just a few minutes away from the busy center. The Villa has a great pool and nice extras (like good internet and a very big TV). It was well maintained and the staff was very kind and helpful.
Far better than shown in pictures
Michael's place is worth staying with either friends or family. We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed Michael's villa and Bali a lot. I would highly recommend his place as it is far better than shown in pictures.
