The villas are in a great location (just meters from the main drag but still very quiet).
The thing that distinguishes Amana villas from others is the superior service offered by its staff. All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and were more than happy to offer advice on things to see and do.
The breakfasts were delicious - we recommend trying some of the Asian breakfast items and the tasty juices.
We stayed in the standard villa with private pool and found it a little on the small side so upgrade to the bigger villas if that's going to bother you. In saying that, the size didn't really bother the two of us and we'd definitely stay here again!
There is some building works going on next door which we understand are due for completion in March. Noise from the works was minimal in villa 102 but staff offered us a complementary service as compensation which is always welcome :)
Some of the other nice touches; free drop off services, bday cake for my partners bday, little gift such as biscuits, drink n cake on arrival, use of iPad and iPod, strong wifi signal.
We didn't use the villas spa service so can't comment on that!

Absolutely fantastic..with professional service....I would recommend to anyone going to Bali and ooooh not forgetting your own private pool... The service we received during our stay was above and beyond....
My husband and I have just spent 8 wonderful days at the Elysian! I chose the Elysian after doing a LOT of homework on the internet and reading numerous glowing reviews. There are SO many hotel choices and destinations in Bali... we would definitely stay here again . We loved the special touches afforded by choosing boutique accomodation- our villa was amazing ; spacious & very comfortable. We were right behind the main pool but it was totally private and very quiet (as was the entire complex). Elysian villas are perfectly located- a very short, easy walk to both the shops and restaurants of Seminyak, as well as the beach. Whilst the beach was very accessible, we much preferred to swim in our private pool and the main pool. Food at the Eysian was just lovely- we enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinner at the hotel. The quality of food and presentation was amazing! - I would highly recommend 'eating in' at the Bamboo Restaurant.
Staying at the Elysian, you'll have the pleasure of meeting a very warm group of people who go out of their way to make your stay very special. We'd like to thank all the staff for looking after us including Sri, Desi, Tini and and Ardi !

Was the most relaxing luxury I've experienced. Didn't overall think too much of Bali but was more than happy to just stay at our villa. Staff are so helpful, drop offs anywhere in Seminyak are not a problem, room service was awesome, bed was delicious. Was wonderful place to stay.
We spend 4 nights there. It was quite a fabulous place to stay. The room was completly design for couples. We had our big swimming pool, big bedroom, very very considerable service. That was a great experience in Bali. We highly recommend couples to stay.
There has been many times we have booked into hotels to be greatly disappointed as they don't resemble the description or photos on their websites. Not in this case, in fact it exceeded our expectations. Our villa was was extremely well equipped with quality fittings, air contioning units, lovely fresh linen, toiletries and not to mention the private swimming pool, totally magic. Our room was serviced twice a day, with a bed turndown service (and a yummy wee treat left in a room every evening).There was a small mini bar available to us free of charge. The staff were just amazing. They were ever so friendly, greeted us with our named and very obviously enjoyed their work, nothing was ever too much trouble. Made our holiday a memorable one and we can't wait to go back.

My wife and I stays at the Khayangan Dream Villa for 2 nights. The location is quite far from the Seminyak Square, but if you are looking for privacy, this villa should be the right one. The Mart is just walking distance. Breakfast is excellent. Mosquitoes is everywhere but it is a common issue as 6 stars accommodation also will face the same thing. They have free drop-off around Seminyak. Definitely will stay again fir next trip.
