A very private, tastefully appointed, luxurious villa in a great location with high-end entertainment systems and many luxury inclusions. Rated 5-stars from every guest.
The living areas are open plan with high 6.5m architecturally designed ceilings, tastefully decorated with local artworks and open on two sides to the tropical gardens and pool.
A fully equipped kitchen includes designer flatware and glassware, large double-sided fridge/freezer with ice-maker, coffee maker, unlimited hot and cold distilled water dispenser, microwave, toaster oven, blender, rice cooker and gas hob. The kitchen bar features vintage style bar stools and hanging pendant copper light fittings.
The dining area is dominated by a large solid wood slab table that comfortably seats 6 with a huge hand-beaten copper lampshade suspended 3m from the rafters. A guest bathroom is discretely located off the dining room.
The lounge area has modular, comfortable couches, a 55-inch Samsung 4K Ultra HD Smart LED Curved Screen TV with Bluetooth keyboard, WiFi, Netflix, Youtube and satellite channels.
Waterproof UE Megaboom Bluetooth speakers provide outstanding sound for lazy days around the pool.
The entire villa is covered by a commercial-grade router ensuring excellent 25mbs WiFi coverage throughout the property.
The living areas open onto the lush, landscaped gardens, 9x6m swimming pool and sunbathing deck with poolside loungers and bean bags. The pool has steps leading to a shallow end around waist high, sloping down to a depth of 175cm. Because the pool has infinity edges it cannot be fenced if you have children.
Many villas in Seminyak are shaded from high walls or double-story buildings. We get all-day sun year-round on the pool for a guaranteed Bali tan.
Complimentary pool towels are provided and there is even an outdoor shower in the garden. We also provide (where possible) a giant pool floatie for your exclusive use. While complimentary to use, we ask you to provide the IDR800k (around AUD$80) replacement cost should things get wild and the floatie is killed in action.
On either side of the sunbathing deck are 2 semi-detached bedrooms, with the master bedroom in a detached building on the other side of the pool, ensuring privacy for all.
The 3 spacious bedrooms are equipped with very comfortable king-size beds, quality linen, oversized extra pillows, brand new powerful air-conditioning, ceiling fan, black-out curtains, built-in wardrobes and drawers and feature 6.5m high Balinese timber ceilings.
Each bedroom has a large, high-quality, anchored security safe with digital keypad large enough to store laptops and bulky camera equipment.
Bedroom 1 has a brand new Samsung 43-inch HD Smart WiFi TV with Netflix, Youtube and Indovision satellite channels. Bedrooms 2 & 3 each have a 32-inch LG Flatscreen TV with Indovision satellite channels.
Each of the ensuite bathrooms features an outdoor shower, large marble bathtub and come equipped with towels, blow-dryer, complimentary body wash, shampoo, conditioner, mosquito spray, toothpaste, and hand-wash.
The villa has housekeeping service daily and is spotlessly cleaned by our experienced and trustworthy staff, with beds made every day and kitchen cleaned so you don’t have to lift a domestic finger.
Towels and linens are changed every 3 days, or more frequently if necessary by arrangement.
The complimentary breakfast includes smoothie bowls made with fresh fruit, yoghurt and granola, toast, tea and coffee (anything extra can be supplied at guest cost) and is served in the dining room of the villa every morning. You can arrange breakfast for a time that suits you, and if you have any special requests we will do our best to please.
For groceries, we can either provide you with a shopping service (just tell us what you want in advance and our staff will do the shopping for you) or you can shop yourself at the local supermarket 8 mins walk or a short taxi ride away.
If you don’t feel like venturing out for meals, our staff can arrange to have local Indonesian dishes brought to the villa at cost and you can order from nearly any restaurant in Bali using Go-Jek for home delivery.
We provide a local laundry service for guests at the cost of IDR20k per kilo. The laundry service we use means you can get clothes cleaned and returned in 2 days at local prices. We provide services using local providers to ensure that you enjoy affordable luxury while supporting the local community.
We have 2 brand new massage beds, making it easy to experience a luxuriating Balinese massage in the privacy of your own villa by professional therapists from our favourite spa at low, local prices.
Each evening the staff will light over a dozen citronella candles in locally made lanterns of different shapes and colours creating a romantic, serene ambience. It is quite an experience to arrive home from watching the sunset or having dinner to a candle-lit villa.
Our mission is for you to relax and enjoy, either lounging around by the pool, relaxing with a massage, or going on excursions to the beautiful countryside, waterfalls, rice fields and markets that Bali has to offer. We can arrange a private driver and car and local prices – simply contact the owner after making a booking.
If you would like to indulge in a rose petal bath, staff can arrange the petals and light the lanterns for you. If you want to indulge yourself in affordable luxury, Villa Koru is for you.
You will be met at the Villa upon arrival. Our staff has had many years of experience in Villa management and will arrange most things for you with no fuss.
The owner is contactable via email or text and has a well-earned reputation for arranging unique, customised itineraries for guests from all parts of the globe with his extensive local knowledge on the best places to go, from high-end restaurants to local cafes, beaches, bars, clubs and sight-seeing tours.
Check-in is from 2 pm and check-out up until 12 noon. Unfortunately, we cannot store your luggage. If you would like to arrange an early check-in (available from 8 am) or a late check-out (available until 10 pm) then please ask after booking.
If there is availability I will block out the villa the day before, or after, for a fee of 50% of the daily rate which you can pay after arrival. Then you have uninterrupted and exclusive use of the villa up until your late-night flight or early arrival.
Villa Koru is set on a 500m2 enclosed block in a very safe, secure and quiet cul-de-sac in Seminyak.
This really is the perfect location, with the essentials within walking distance and easy access to the main arterial route (Sunset Rd) means you can get pretty much anywhere easily and quickly, especially if venturing out on day trips to attractions around Ubud and beyond (Monkey Forest, Elephant Cave, Tanah Lot, Tegalalang Ricefields, Danu Beratan).
Our location is perfect and counts for a lot when traffic is heavy – staying in villa or hotel accommodation closer to the beach sounds like fun until you spend hours in slow crawling traffic trying to get home in the narrow, congested roads and laneways typical of the tourist strip.
Ony 2 mins walk to a 24-hour convenience store, 3 mins walk to the Orchard Bar and Restaurant (with some of the best live music in Bali) and 8 mins walk to the well-known Bintang supermarket. Double Six and Seminyak beaches are 26 mins walk or 8 min by taxi and its only 26 mins walk or 7 min by taxi to Jalan Kayu Aya (Eat Street in Oberoi).
It’s a short ride to well-known Bali Beach Clubs (Ku De Ta, Potato Head, Cocoon), upmarket restaurants (Sardine, Metis, Merah Putih, Sarong), bars and clubs (La Favela, Champagne Bar, Motel Mexicola) and beach bars (La Plancha, 707).
It’s an easy 30 min drive up Sunset Rd from the airport.
We provide one complimentary private car and driver for airport transfers for up to 4 guests with luggage. If you need a second car we can arrange this for a low cost of IDR150k (around AUD$15) each way. This is very cheap and you won’t find better at the airport where the taxi touts can be quite aggressive.
If you have guests arriving at different times we can also book their separate airport transfers for the same low price. Extra payments can be made after arrival.
For stays of 5 days or longer drop-off to the airport is also complimentary (same price as pick-up if a 2nd car is required).
We offer a special deal for guests to hire a private car and driver (6-seater air-conditioned SUV) for the length of your stay so you can see the sights and attractions, go to the beaches, rice terraces, temples, dinner etc at your convenience and without the hassle of arranging transport for each individual trip.
It only cost IDR600k per day (around AUD$60), so it’s incredibly good value and often cheaper than adding up all the taxis and other transport you will use during your holiday.
I have a very trustworthy driver that I use frequently and he makes an exceptional tour guide. Booking early is important to confirm his availability.
This is an optional service that I provide at cost because most of my guests use it and love the convenience. Check the reviews and we can discuss after making a booking.
If not, taxis and other local transport options are very cheap. Grab has gained popularity and is recommended.
I have a Honda Scoopy 110cc scooter for your complimentary use during your stay. It’s really useful for popping around to the convenience store or doing some small grocery shopping. Guests *must* produce a valid unrestricted motorbike license and a copy of travel insurance on arrival before being allowed to use it.
More scooter or motorbike rentals can be arranged for you, although we recommend this only if you have experience and a valid motorcycle license, as Bali makes a poor training ground for those new to riding.
The villa has a secure, covered carport with enough room for a car or several motorbikes.
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.
