"Perfect location for us, however a few mishaps."
Quality I am rating a 4 because though the villa was modern, we met a couple while dicing and visited their villa which was enormous with a pool and very spacious bedrooms and wonderful bath room for only $20 more a night then what we pay for no bath tub and no pool and 1/4 the size. In addition the house keeping kept turning off the AC when we left […] in the morning and we would come back after a long day in the heat wither diving or roaming around to sit in a hot room for an hour while it cools off. Condition and maintenance of the villas I rate a 3, due to the sliding doors to the bath room were not installed properly and kept rubbing up on each other causing the door to stop inches from being closed. We had to pull back on one door to close the doors completely. We notified staff but they seem to not have cared much. Cleanliness of our room up keep was mediocre at best. Seemed as if they came to make the bed and just tidy up at the most. Comfort of the room was a 3 because that bed was a rock. Also the room was circled all the way around the entrance sliding doors and huge window with large dark curtains There were no curtains covering the sliding doors to the naturally lit bathroom that would shine light to the bed. We were woken unpleasantly every morning by 5am from the light shining through straight into our faces. Convenience of location was absolutely perfect for us because it was just a few minutes away from shopping. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful villa in Seminyak"
We stayed at Kanishka villa for 5 days in November. The weather in Bali was bad with heavy rain and thunderstorm for 4 days. Fortunately our trip to Bali was purely for relaxing and Kanishka villa was just perfect fit. The location is in the heart of Seminyak where you can walk to many restaurants, including the famous Bali Deli; several nice spas also […] within walking distance. The villa has separate bed-room w/ four poster bed, outdoor shower and huge living room with comfy sofa, well equipped kitchen, small pool, flat screen TVs and free wi-fi. Breakfast were served in your villas. The people are quite helpful and nice. Highly recommended ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best convenient location."
1. 2 minutes walk out to the shops, restaurants and massage parlours. 2. Convenient to travel to Seminak Square, Potato Heads and Galleria Centre 3. Villa Staffs rendered excellent services. Smiles, Friendly and obliging 4. The only downfall is the villa massage, apart from the high costs, they displayed inefficient and uncompromising. 5. There is some […] languages barrier as one or two of the receptionist seems to unable to speak or understand english 6. Security is in question. I didnt see a security guard at the door. All staffs were chatting away in their staff room 7. Villa respect the quests' privacy 8. Over-rall I would certainly highly recommend to anyone and I will return to this villa again for its convenient location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Some rooms appear better maintained than others. We had a 1 bedrom pool villa which was ok but could have been better maintained. The hotel was very kind to let us freshen up in a jacuzzi room (we checked out but had a later flight so asked if we could use shower facilities), which looked much better than the one we stayed in. But overall staff were […] friendly and helpful. Breakfast was disappointing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great villa close to all Seminyak has to offer"
We stayed at Kanishka villas for a week and could not have been happier - everything was perfect.The staff were absolutely amazing - so friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back again soon for another visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing staff and rooms"
This is such a fantastic villa / hotel. The staff are simply the best I've ever experienced and the villas are as luxurious as anything I've ever seen. Do yourself a favour and stay here, I know we will again!Genuine Expedia guest review
The Villas were great except for the beds being very hard, the staff were fabulous & extremely helpful. There is a great restaurant called Mannakepis up around the corner - great food & even better music.Genuine Expedia guest review

Lovely staff. Great room and facilities. Thank you!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty room, Poor service."
My partner and I was hoping for a romantic getaway but we had the exact opposite. The staff struggled to understand english and failed to follow simple requests. We had repeat and explain several times and did not get an out come or solution for the majority of the time. They also failed to tell us that there was construction work next to our villa […] that started at 7am every morning. On top of that, there was also barking dogs owned by other tenant of the privately owned villas. We had to asked to move to another room. We thought it couldn't get any worse but it did. The TV antenna didn't work 4 out of the 5 days that we stayed at the villa. When we asked for it to be fixed they said that it will be back to normal in 20 minutes. 20minute later we called again to follow up, they said it will be another 20minutes. This 20 minutes became 1day. This scenario ended up continuing for several days. There was interruptions through out the day by the staff knocking on the door. I became ill during my stay and needed rest but the constant noise and interruption made it very difficult to get better. We ordered the same breakfast for three days and each day it was missing something and looked different. We thought staying at a villa would be private but instead we saw a worker climbing on our fence /wall of the villa working without letting us know. What privacy? Room service as poor and varied daily. Some days our rubbished was not cleared and towels not replaced. Disappointment! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"GREAT QUIET CENTRAL LOCATION SEMINYAK"
Kaniska Villas are in the middle of Jl Kunti and are very central in Seminyak but off the main busy shopping district but only a short walk up the road. Plenty of cheap spas and good restaurants in the same street and also the Bali Deli which is very handy for everything from fruit to wines. The only thing that was not up to standard was breakfast (which […] was included) other than that happy with our stay at Kaniska Villas. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved Kanishka we stayed in a one bedroom pool villa and loved coming home from a hot shopping trip and plunging into our private pool. The villa was clean and modern and well serviced. The location is great a couple of hundred meters from Bali Deli and shopping at the end of the street. We had a couple of issues with hot water and air conditioner […] in our villa stopping working but these were very quickly fixed and caused no real problem to us. Overall I think for the price it is a great place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A beautiful villa in a quiet location. The pool was nice and cool while staff always tried their best to make sure we had what we wanted. Only downfall was lack of sun in the villa as there are lots of trees blocking it. Overall, a fantastic place though!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing place for a honeymoon"
The pictures don't lie. The individual villas are amazing and fully private. Breakfast is served in your villa by very nice and discreet staff. We loved the fact the living area is separate from the bedroom which is in it's own fully kitted and comfortable house on the other side of your private pool. It was a great place to unwind and fully disconnect. […] The location is great which is close to the Bali Deli as well as many great restaurants and shops in Seminyak which can all be reached by foot. Highly recommended.

"kanishka villas, not a goood location"
staff here are great but the location is a pain. you have to walk along grotty footpaths to get every were and the traffic is very agressive and intense.in some places very hard to even cross the road and not even footpaths so nearly get run down on way to beach which is 20 minute walk. our villa was very nice but the aspect is terrible and we got next […] to no sun around the pool, we had very noisey neighbours also ! we asked to be moved to their sister hotel in jimbaran bay but they could not help so we simply left 5 days early and paid to stay in another place . cost us a lot of extra money but atleast got final 5 days to relax in the next place. try "saba villas" much more tranquil location only little further up coast and only 3 dollars in taxi or nice 30 minute walk along beach.

"Great stay, Large Rooms, Comfortable"
The only thing that was a shame is that we could not sun bake by the pool as there was no sun able to get through the trees in the villa. Staff could have been a little bit happier but overall good. We would go back if they cut the trees down so you could lay in the sun by the pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic Holiday at the amazing Kanishka Villas!"
We booked a one bedroom villa (all villas have 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, 1 by the pool & 1 upstairs - both are very private & would be a great set up for 2 couples) for a week in October 2011 & were given Villa 14 which is at the end of the lane that the villas occupy. I had read numerous reports that started that noise was a concern due to their open […] air nature but we heard nothing at all (all 15 villas were fully booked & occupied when we stayed) & we came to think of our villa as an oasis, close to everything but so relaxing & private. I am sure that if you did hear people or any noise you could flick the switch that turns on the waterfall over the pool & problem would be solved, as the waterfall drowns out all other noises and adds to the relaxing feel or lazing by the pool. There were mosquitoes but they were nowhere near as bad as I had read & really were no problem at all, neither of us were bitten, the staff sprayed the villas (all rooms) each night & set out coils to burn in the living and bathroom areas. The villas are a short stroll to loads of fantastic restaurants, spas & shopping, we walked to the beach one morning and in took about 15 minutes at a leisurely stopping to browse kind of pace. On numerous occasions we used the villas transport and driver to drop us off at restaurants or to go shopping, which is included in the price. The villas also organised free transport to Jimbaran for a sunset seafood dinner and we booked a driver for a day trip to Ubud though our butler and the price was very reasonable. The villa was private, well equipped and had everything we could have possibly needed. The open air living/dining and kitchen area is very large and well laid out. There is a fan in this areas that kept it amazingly cool & we spent a lot of time lazing around on the sofa which is huge, as was the flat screen TV with surround sound. We didn't do any cooking in the kitchen, but certainly could have done as everything is right there ready, with a full-si Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Relaxing and wonderful stay"
07/09/14 Bex H Sydney, Australia
We stayed in the 1 bedroom pool villa. The room was beautiful, a great mix of indoor-outdoor space. Breakfast coming to the room everyday was also wonderful, and the staff were very friendly and willing to help out and suggest things to see and do.
06/29/14 aussiegirl77 Australia
We stayed in one of the Jacuzzi rooms and it was lovely. Every morning breakfast was brought to the room and set up on the outdoor eating area. You needed to remember to order the night before, but even the night we arrived at 2am this all happened without a hitch. The room was as advertised on the website. It was convenient to most things (Bali Deli just up the road) and the staff were lovely. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The room was serviced daily and my only complaint about the stay was that they seemed to be concerned about clearing away old dishes etc. For example, I made a cup of tea the first morning of our stay (and drank half) which was still there the morning we left (three days later). Overall it was a very nice place to stay... but it lacked 'personality'.
"Lovely Villas - Excellent Staff!"

Pros: - Friendliest staff - Hotel is well located in Seminyak - Nice spacious room with Jacuzzi - Excellent breakfast Cons: - Lighting in the room was a little bit dim - Overall, stay was very comfortable and enjoyable
"The amazing Kanishka"
06/25/14 Morag P Helsinki, Finland
This was my second time at Kanishka, and I loved it as much as the first time. We stayed there for 3 nights. The villa was beautiful and we had our own private pool. Breakfast was brought to our villa and it was delicious. Our living room had a huge flat screen tv, a dvd player and good sound system. The staff was lovely and always available. Kanishka is definitely the best place to stay at Seminyak. I truly recommend it!
"Holiday Club Luxury"
06/08/14 Mark P Perth, Australia
We got to use some expiring points from a holiday club to stay here. It is just a short walk from the main road and about 20 minute walk to the beach, where we went nearly every night to eat and watch the sunset.Very luxurious. Our room, more a villa, had to full king rooms with outdoor ensuites, one upstairs one down, we chose the down on the other side of the pool. The private pool was quite big, a bit cool due to the all day shade but very refreshing once u got in. There was a full dining room, kitchenette (strange,no microwave) with full fridge and water dispensor, and large lounge area with plenty of complimentary fruit. The lounge/ dining also opened onto the pool.The large TV had surround sound,DVD etc and plenty of english foxtel. Basically the rooms had everything, Very clean, typical Bali friendly staff. Hard to pick a fault. Only downside was our noisy neighbours which is due to the open plan style. They got back at 3 am and sreamed, yelled and gigled in high pitched voices. The second night my wife shouted for quiet to no avail but when I had a go they soon got the message, and that was that, no need to bother the staff. We didn't hear from the room on the other side and it was definately occupied, More down to one groups ignorance.This could be an issue for some.Our sleep was extremely comfortable but disturbed. As we didn't pay I would say it is quite expensive by Bali standards but you definately get more for your money than most places, The rooms are made for for 2 couples so halving the cost would be very cost effective for a very luxurious holiday and you certainly would have your own space.
"Would definitely stay again"
06/02/14 covert132 Perth, Australia
What a wonderful place. The villas especially the pool villa was like a dream. Looked forward to getting back to it after each day of exploring and shopping. The location is quiet. Breakfast was very good and the evening cakes a delight. The staff were A class. Thank you Kanishka for a very happy memorable stay.
06/01/14 Andrew M Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Kanishka villas was a fantastic place to start our honeymoon. A great size with a nice big private pool which was very refreshing from the hot days. In a nice quiet location within walking distance to so many great restaurants and shops. Staff were very friendly and always happy to help. Occasionally the villa was not cleared as well as should be but never too much left for it to be an issue. Very happy with the stay there
"Had Issues, Very Disapointing"
05/29/14 Jenneane D Melbourne, Australia
Stayed here for 3 nights in a Private Pool Villa. Negatives were: Booked a trip that was advertised on the web site called "The Balinese Experience" including All entrance fees, 1 hour Balinese Massage & Dinner. Very disappointed. Reception staff had no idea where we were going, Driver was 45 mins Late, no massage, and we paid for everything. Refused to pay for the booking at checkout. Villa Toilet Leaked, and Air conditioner in the bedroom broke down on the last day. Reported it in the morning prior to leaving for the day, came back and it appeared to be fixed, but within an hour it was not working again. Reported it and took 3 hours for someone to come and look at it. Was offered another villa at 2230 that night, by that time we were hot and tired, and couldn't be bothered to relocate all our stuff only having to check out the next morning. We could hear all the going on's in the villa above and next to us.... There are certain things you don't want to hear if you get my drift. Positives: Was blown away by the size, Breakfast was fit for a king and the bed was to die for. Overall, very expensive for the issues we had.
"Thank you for a superb hospitality"
05/28/14 dengert Melbourne, Australia
Our first time to Bali and wonderful memories. Our villa was perfect. The staff was wonderful and friendly. Breakfast each morning was a delight , our little chats and stories. We organised 2 cooking classes, one in the villa and the other in the sister villas in Jimbaran. The chef was exceptional. The whole experience was personal and perfect. The advice and suggestions we were given by Kanishka's staff was very informative such as where to shop and dine and not at all from a business perspective. This was genuine. The location was also great. Everything within reach but slightly away from the real busy everyday etc....Our whole experience has been perfect. Thank you every one at Kanishka Villas.

the villas were fantastic , the butlers were very professional, the office staff were so helpful and very polite. The only small problem we had was the pool was very cold next time will ask for villa with more sun.
