  1. Glenn Berryman

    I have recently returned home after spending time in Bali and twice at Villa Phinisi!! The first stay was for 4 nights with a group of 5 other friends and the second for 3 nights where 3 families with 8 kids aged 11 to 16 joined us. The villa is amazing and the pool and outdoor areas are awesome! To have an oasis like this with so much space and privacy so close to the heart of Seminyak but also right next door to the beach and Ku De Ta was absolutely brilliant. Could not think of a better location to enjoy the spoils of Seminyak. Everything was only a short stroll away and yet, the craziness of Seminyak seemed to disappear as soon as you walked in the amazing front door of Phinisi. Special mention to Madek, Putu and Vina who were so welcoming and looked after our every need, with a smile. I even received an impromptu 30 minute massage from not one, but two of these lovely ladies with no expectation of anything in return. The food was also wonderful and made our stay even more enjoyable, as we were able to casually roll up to breakfast by the pool and enjoy our friends and families’ company. The bedrooms were all well appointed and spacious and all set within a lovely rustic house complete with loads of timber and stone and tastefully and authentically decorated. All in all, a perfect place to stay for a group of friends or a large family or group of families. Highly recommended and look forward to returning as soon as possible.

    We were in a group of 4 couples and 2 children under the age of 2 for 6 nights. While the house was beautiful it had flaws. Bedroom and bathroom doors did not seal shut so bugs and mosquitoes were everywhere! Everyone, especially the kids were covered in bites. The pool was great, especially with young children being a beach. While I wouldn’t go back to Villa Phinisi, i would definitively go through Ministry Villas again! All staff were amazing and so helpful right from booking to when we left the villa (5 stars for ministry villas).

  3. Sandra peace

    Loved the staff! They made our stay definitely! Everything was clean, the pool and rooms were cleaned daily,
    Few things could be updated like towels and pool towels. We brought a box of bottled water everyday, for what we paid I think at least bottled water should be supplied.
    Security was great also, knowing that they were thereto keep everything sound at night was great, friendly also. Overall a great stay, can’t stress enough the staff great job. 🙂

  4. Anshul Shah

    We only stayed at Phinisi for 3 nights but the staff was super cooperative and friendly! The best thing about the villa is its rustic-like setting and it’s lagoon style pool. The chef made us some of the best chocolate fondant I’ve ever had. The staff was also required to stay overtime on a couple of occasions but never even showed that they were tired or uninterested. I can’t help but feel nothing but praise for the staff. The ministry of villas people were extremely professional and efficient with their communication. You always get the feeling you’re in safe hands. Would definitely book again through MoV and maybe request for the staff to be shifted to whatever villa I book 😉

    I have just returned from 10 beautiful days in Bali, 6 of which we spent at Villa Phinisi. There were 12 girls and we were all absolutely delighted with our rooms. The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean at all times. We all had our own bathrooms which made getting ready to go out so easy. The villa is a private Oasis hidden behind a big brick fence. It has a very safe feel and with security outside at all times we felt very safe.
    The central location of the villa gave us easy access to the most amazing restaurants in Bali. Shops were just accessible.
    The staff at the Villa were just amazing, they could not do enough to help us. They were always happy and wanting to help us in any way possible. Ketut and the ladies cooked our meals to perfection. My special occasion luncheon (my 50th Birthday for 25 people) was Bubi Guling, salads, pasta and rice and was simply fantastic.
    I have the most wonderful memories from our stay and could not recommend this place more highly. I will most certainly be back.

  6. Julia

    We stayed at Villa Phinisi while in Bali for a friends wedding; and with ample room for 14 of us this villa was perfect!

    It’s in a great location, with less than a 5 minute walk from Seminyak Square, Motel Mexicola, Ku De Ta beach and the Flea Markets.

    The Villa staff went above and beyond to make our stay amazing, and made us feel right at home.
    Kadek and Ketut can organise anything for you; from delicious home-cooked meals, to massages, or even getting Bintang beers delivered!

    Rooms were clean and very comfortable, all having king size beds and air conditioning.

    Some of the locks on the doors didn’t work very well, but with security guards right outside we felt very safe.

    The grounds of the villa were perfectly maintained, and really made us feel like we were in a tropical paradise!
    With Bali being so busy and loud, Villa Phinisi was a great escape from the hustle and bustle going on outside.

    The only issue we had, was a stepping stone near the pool tipped over when one of us stood on it and our friend fell into the water.
    Thankfully, she wasn’t hurt and as we were leaving the staff were fixing the stepping stone.. so hopefully this doesn’t happen to anyone else!

    I highly recommend staying at Villa Phinisi if you stay in Seminyak!
    I’ve only just gotten home, and am already planning my next trip back.

    I can’t thank Ministry of Villas enough!!
    Trying to organise a holiday for 14 of us seemed like a huge task, but Ministry of Villas made it so easy.
    This service is amazing and takes all the hard work out of planning a trip.

  7. Melissa

    We stayed at Villa Phinisi with 12xadults in October 2016.
    We were extremely impressed with the location and the villa.
    The staff were AMAZING and the food they cooked was even better! Would highly recommend staying here!

    “Loved our time here”

    We have just spent a week at Villa Phinisi. 2 family’s with both teenage and adult children. We have felt at home from the time we walked in the gate. I have been to Bali several times but avoided busy spots like Seminyak in favour of more remote locations. But staying at this villa gave us the best of both worlds. You are 100 mths from Kudeta , yet once back at the villa you can’t hear anything other than the kids playing in the pool and the hum of the kites above .

    The villa owner has done a wonderful job with the decor and functionality of the villa with ample bedroom space, a huge living area and alfresco dining. The back yard would be the envy of a lot of homeowners in Australia with its large expanse of lawn. The icing on the cake though was Kadek and her wonderful helper, Kadek #2, Raith, Gradius and Ketut the chef.

    We only ate 2 nights at the villa, but it is such a simple process I think next time we would use Ketut more often. For one meal he arranged a feast of Bubi Guling which was just fantastic. It was also comforting to see Agus sitting sentry on our villa every time we came and went of an evening.

    All in all the staff could not do enough to help us during our stay, and showed such genuine interest in us that they really made this a holiday to remember.

    So a big thanks to Anika (Owner) and Ketut (Manager) for your attention to detail, but a big thanks to Kadek again for making us feel so special for a week. It’s going to be hard to return to our reality, but we will try to arrange an escape to Villa Phinisi again sometime soon.
