It’s a near-impossible task maintaining a 5-star review rating across Airbnb, TripAdvisor, 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.

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 e tremely 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

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

Very comfortable

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 🙂

Incredible host!

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!

Excellent service

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!

Fantastic host

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.

Such comfy beds, had the best sleep!!

Michael was really easy to communicate with and his staff are wonderful as well. The villa is exactly like the photo's. Such comfy beds, had the best sleep!! Great sunny pool! Location is about 10 mins walk down small gang's to Bingtang supermarket. Couple of cute restaurants close by. Such a spacious and relaxing stay. Would love to stay again.

The real thing even more spectacular!

The pictures looks beautiful and the real thing even more spectacular. it is all it says and more. We had a great time at the Villa with a nice size pool. Everything is built around the pool, the rooms, the living room, the kitchen. you can step into the pool from anywhere of the Villa. There is also the outdoor massage beds by the poolside and our housekeeper arranged the in villa massage for us. Awesome experience. Will recommend this to anyone!

Absolutely loved Villa Koru

Absolutely loved Villa Koru with its spacious 3 bedrooms and private pool. Yanik our lovely helpful housekeeper ensured we started each day with a delicious tropical fruit breakfast and serviced our rooms quietly and efficiently with beautifully crisp linen daily. The owner Michael helped organize scooter hire. He also had great suggestions for day trips and by helping us arrange made our stay effortless. Will be returning!

This villa is spectacular!

This villa is spectacular! The rooms are gorgeously romantic and clean, the pool is stunning and the other amenities amazing. Excellently located in the heart of Seminyak, everything was very handy - supermarket, beach, Circle K and even an Irish Pub. Our hosts were by far and away the best we have ever experienced - they were very attentive, helpful and thought of everything from beautiful flowers in the room, to a lovely gift waiting for us. Breakfast each day was a feast for the eyes as well as the tummy. Staff were absolutely amazing. Would most definitely recommend to anyone coming to Bali - don't waste your time with motels/hotels, treat yourself to a special slice of paradise all to yourself. You'll never want to go home.

Great location and close to the action

An absolutely woknderful villa in Bali! Great location and close to the action in Seminyak but not too in the midst of it all! We had a wonderful week staying here!!

Beautiful & Private Villa

Absolutely one of the most beautiful Villa we've stayed in and we were lucky enough to spend a few nights in this place with great company from the host. It was private, elegant & the food was amazing the bedrooms & bathroom were very spacious and beautiful.

Even better than the pictures

The villa is beautiful, even better than the pictures. very good for family. Michael is a very nice host, very good service. thanks

Without a doubt I will definitely stay here again

Love Michael's place as it is very spacious. Especially love the pool because it was big and deep enough. Communication with him was a breeze and he was very prompt in replying my queries. He was also very helpful in recommending places to go and restaurants. One of the day, I accidentally left my hair straightener on and took the keys with me. He was very prompt in action to head to the villa and off it for me. Sorry for the trouble! Without a doubt I will definitely stay here again and recommend this place to my friends and families.

Like your very own private resort

Real Bali experience, like your very own private resort. Great value highly recommended. Having the pool open to the sun means it was usable in the dry / winter. Unlike other places I have stayed.

Service was amazing

Had the best holiday and stay at Villa Koru. Villa is so beautiful, and service was amazing. The owner Michael is always available for questions and extremely accommodating and helpful. Housekeeper Yanik makes the best breakfast bowls and is so sweet and cleans everyday to perfection. Wayan the driver is a really good tour guide and driver and very entertaining. Really good entertainment system with Netflix etc and speaker system. Definitely would stay again!

La villa es increíble

Todo correcto, tal y como se describe en las fotos. La villa es increíble y la piscina maravillosa. El desayuno todas las mañanas perfecto!!

The villa itself is stunning

The villa is located in a quiet lane within walkable distance to the bustling centre of Seminyak, the beach, shopping and restaurants. It's cheap and easy to arrange a car whenever needed also. Michael & staff arranged for massages in the villa, and arranged cars for full day trips with knowledgeable and friendly drivers. The villa itself is stunning. The pool is crystal clear and just the right depth. It catches the sun for most of the day. The living area has a very large and comfortable couch and the large screen TV system has access to Netflix or you can connect your own hard drive to play media. The bedrooms have aircon, fans and very comfortable large beds. I have no hesitation in recommending Villa Koru.

Great location!

Had a great time at the villa with my 3 kids. Pool is sizable and clean, great location and complete home entertainment makes it a superb stay in Bali.

We had a fantastic week

Great villa made even better by the first class communication from Michael and the villa staff's attention and warm welcome, nothing was ever a problem, Budi took great care of us and having breakfast taken care of each morning only added to the relaxation. The location is out of the way in the sense of peace and quiet yet literally a 10 minute stroll to the hustle and bustle of Jl Raya Seminyak including the ever helpful Bintang Supermarket and countless shops and restaurants. I could write about three completely independent air conditioned bedrooms with full bathrooms including outdoor showers or the huge and comfortable lounge, curved smart TV, faultless high speed wireless internet, the full kitchen or twin door fridge/freezer that keeps your afternoon beverages unbelievable cold but all of this is overshadowed by the central (massive) amazing pool that can't help but steal the limelight. We had a fantastic week at Villa Koru and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Would definitely recommend

Would definitely recommend Michael's place, the staff there are super friendly and helpful. Location is kind of in the middle of different areas, and easy to get to things you may be interested in. Thanks Michael, Budi and co!

I highly recommend this place!

Great Villa, this place is very quiet and very beautifull and It is close to the beach. Michael and Indah are wonderfull hosts. They planed tour with us that fit with our taste and our style of visit. I highly recommend this place !


It was perfect! The service, facilities, and cleanliness were very satisfying. We stayed at 3 BR villa which is so big and each room has its own big bathroom with bathup inside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Location was around Seminyak area which was close to 66 Beach, shopping area and restaurants and cafes. Overall, it was definitely worth to stay when you are in Bali. Thanks Michael ! ????

Luxury villa, great host and location

Just got home after a fantastic 2 weeks in the villa. The photos do not do this place justice, it is even better! Michael was a great host from the first communication. Budi and her team look after your every wish, great breakfast at a time that suited you, cooking meals or bringing in take aways through the day, housekeeping & lighting candles in the evening. The 3 bedrooms are very big with queen beds that are super comfortable and en-suite bathrooms. The pool is a great size and gardens and decks have lots of rooms for several people. The location is perfectly placed for all Seminyak offers. You can walk to the beach, shops, restaurants and bars within minutes. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone.

A luxury hotel experience with the privacy of a villa

A luxury hotel experience with the privacy of a villa, this is what AirBnB was meant for. Communications with Michael before our trip were well informed and very professional. He organised a heap of things for us and really made our holiday there special. Being picked up from the airport by our own private driver made getting there a breeze. I highly recommend booking a driver with Michael for your holiday, as it made such a difference to us. We went everywhere and saw a bunch of things we hadn’t even thought of. Everything about the villa is stylish, from the massive pool to the artwork and furnishings. For our group of 6 it was a totalling relaxing experience. The housekeeping was superb and the villa was kept impeccably clean. Budi and the staff were amazing, especially the breakfast every morning. It’s really close to everything in Seminyak like restaurants, shopping, bars and clubs and of course the beach. I totally recommend Villa Koru to anyone looking for a luxury villa in Bali.

Great location with easy access to shopping, bars, restaurants, and beaches

Great location with easy access to shopping, bars, restaurants, and beaches. Yet once you return from the days adventures, inside the villa it feels safe, secluded and serene. Our host, Michael couldn't have been more helpful. He is a "foodie" after my own heart, and his dining recommendations and local knowledge for places of interest were invaluable when planning our days. Nothing we asked for was too much trouble. Budi and staff were excellent, always friendly and the villa was kept clean and beautifully presented. The breakfast of fruit, toast and coffee was scrumptious. If you're enjoying the pool too much and don't feel like venturing out, they are only too happy to arrange some takeaway local cuisine. My favourite was the Babi Guling washed down with Budi's refreshing Iced Tea. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable Super King beds and ensuites in a modern Balinese style. I highly recommend to anyone who wants a well appointed villa in a convenient location. We are already planning our next stay.
