"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
"Great villa close to all Seminyak has to offer"

"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

"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

Fantasic Location villa was very neat an tidy and plenty of room, but Mozzie's were so bad from about 5pm on ward as it is open plan with no doors in the family room an pool area & mozzie coils, spray dont work, was eaten alive, they need to look at that or put a mozzie net across that area.

"A Sixtieth birthday in Bali."
03/11/14 Sue C Melbourne, Australia
Kanishka provided a wonderful beginning to what I think would be our most enjoyable visit to Bali.. .ever ! No-one would be surprised to hear about great service and friendliness in a good Seminyak luxury resort but this was somehow different. The staff seemed to be ahead of all of our needs and were responsive to late night requests for in-room dining and that special bottle of wine that my "clutz" husband then proceeded to drop on the very firm Villa floor all cleaned up with a broad Balinese grin. As for the Villa (17) , which comes with a brilliant private pool. Comfortable, romantic and certainly no air conditioning issues for us on this stay. Luxurious without being pretentious. Sue C
"Excellent private pool Villa"
03/04/14 Don W Melbourne, Australia
We could not have been happier with our stay at Kanishka Villa's. Everybody without exception were friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The Villa itself was awesome, we have been to Bali many times and just wanted to stay in the room and relax, this was very easy to do in the huge Villa with large outdoor living area, two TV's, large private pool, good size fridge, drinking water dispenser, large bathroom and very well kept garden. Everything we needed was very close by which is handy if you just want to relax and not have to search for things. If possible we will be going back to stay again it was so good.
"A place to relax and unwind."
02/21/14 BrownPoppy Selangor, Malaysia
We stayed for three days and two nights at the one bedroom Jacuzzi suite villa. Positive feedbacks brought us to Kanishka. The villa was clean and well prepared when we arrived. Loved the bathroom, the sink area was well equipped, beautifully lighted with an opening on the ceiling (we realized on the second night that it was actually covered with glass). The bed was comfortable, my husband fancy the pillows. We read about some comments saying that the bed was hard or uncomfortable, guess this is more on personal references. The breakfast were delicious with variety of choices. You can opt for American/Indonesian/Continental breakfast, plenty of juices to choose from, served on your preferred time. It was sent to us hot and on the dot, never too early/late. For two days we went about our activities and arrived late in the evening, finding the bed ready for us. Complimentary cakes and mineral water was also served daily. Mosquito coils were lit in the bathroom area and deck (the smell was a bit much later at night, but it was tolerable). The staff were friendly and helpful with big smiles, making us feel welcomed. The location is strategic, walking distance to variety of shops and restaurant. The front desk will provide you with a map and recommendations of places to go. The villa provide us the seclusion and privacy that we needed. Hanging out on the deck at night was both relaxing and romantic. We really enjoyed our time at the villa, and we definitely plan to come back.
"maintenance of the room is very poor"

was staying at kanishka last week. I booked this resort as I read good reviews over TripAdvisor but I am not happy with the room. I was staying at jaccuzi villa and the AC was not working properly. they have not maintained the resort properly. out of 6 days 2 days my room AC was not working. there. maintenance of the room is very poor.and even after complaining about air conditioner not up to the mark they haven't fixed it.I'm not happy with the service. I would never recommend any honeymoon couple to go there
"Open plan luxury villa in Seminyak."
02/17/14 Jodie H Melbourne, Australia
Recently stayed here for 3 nights with my husband on the first leg of our Bali holiday. We had stayed here about 2 years ago as well. We stayed in one of the new One Bedroom Pool Villas. We love the open plan of the villas where the kitchen and dining open straight on to the deck and pool area, and having the bedroom and bathroom separate. The air con worked amazingly, and we loved the layout of the bathroom. It is more an open plan, it does have walls but there is an open panel over a garden bed they have in there. The shower and bath were HUGE, which was awesome. The service was always good, we had room service on our first night when we were exhausted and couldn't be bothered venturing out, and it was average, but thats kinda what we were expecting. Pool is a great size and a good temperature. The rooms and pool are cleaned well, and breakfast was always good! A few down falls, internet wifi was very hit and miss, and when it did work is was usually very slow. One day I did call reception when it wasn't working and they said they would fix it, but nothing was done about it. The bed was horribly uncomfortable, it was so hard! Which was sad because when we stayed here a few years ago (we were in a 2 bed villa that time) the bed was awesome, so we were pretty annoyed with that. But other then those 2 things we loved our stay at Kanishka, love the location and the friendliness of the staff. People have said they have had troubled with mosquitos, but we had no troubles at all.
"AC not working"
Im right now staying at kanishka. I booked this resort as I read good reviews over TripAdvisor but I am not happy with the room. I am staying at jaccuzi villa and even after complaining about air conditioner not up to the mark they haven't fixed it.I'm not happy with the service. I hope they fix it tomorrow.

Having reading some bad review about kanishka, We came to kanishka without high expectation and we thought we will get average experience. WE WERE WRONG We had a fantastic time on our stay here at kanishka villa. we book a one bedroom villa but given a two bedroom villa though they locked access to the second bedroom. The living room is so comfy and relaxing that we spent our whole time there, relaxing at the pool and get lazy at the comfortable large couch. The bedroom is nice, only negative is the sign of wear and tear on some of bedroom and bathroom furnitures but its not a big deal. They served breakfast at dining area at our preferable time and it tasted good. Every evening when we comeback after exploring seminyak, they put some complimentary cakes on the refrigerator. And after the housekeeping making the bed, they put some little balinese doll on top of it, a small touch but leaving a heartfelt impression that we are treated so special here And they have a shuttle service, you can go anywhere around seminyak, the driver will drop you there. for free.... at one occasion when we want to have dinner at merah putih restaurant, the hotel staff and the driver even go the extra mile to call the restaurant to ask about the precise location, drive us there and even ask us to call the hotel to be picked up after dinner even though the shuttle service was meant to be a drop only service. Other plus is the location, bali deli, warung italia, mannekepis and other restaurant is so nearby and just a step away from kaniska, yet inside the villa it feels so calm and quiet when we need it, and the busy bustling road of seminyak is only a few walk away form the villa Heard a lot about mosquito problem here, but it never be a big problem since every evening they did fogging and afterwards the staff light a mosquito repellant all over the villa. Just always close the glass sliding door of your bedroom and livingroom and your room are practically mosquito free inside the villa, except the bathroom, you will still encounter few mosquito there but still tolerable definitely will be back again to kanishka

Just spent a week at Kanishka Villas and loved it. Had 2 double villas next door to each other so the whole grown up family could stay. Everyone had their own privacy if they wanted, or could meet in the living area/pool. Great accomodation and location. Everything was within walking distance or a short taxi ride.The staff at Kanishka make your stay. Friendly, helpful and always with a smile on their face. I appreciated the little extras they went to, making our stay so memorable.
02/02/14 Gillian J Kalgoorlie, Australia
Thank you Kanishka Villas for our wonderful week long vacation. Having a private pool was absolutely the best. We had a lovely relaxing time in a 2 bedroom pool villa. We chose to cook our own breakfast most mornings and it was fantastic being able to do so in our own kitchen. So many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The staff were lovely and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay there again. A big thumbs up!!!!
"Cozy bslinese home away from home"
01/25/14 Schatje0910 Manila, Philippines
We stayed in a two bedrom villa during the post christmas to new year holiday. The villa in itself is great, it is spacious and feels like home. But we missed the amenities of a hotel , such as room service and all day dining. We prefer the quiet laidback feel of its area . Breakfastwas served on time, and the staff were very attentive. The room at the poolside where me and my husband stayed was a bit warm while the 2nd fkr room was really cold because of the 2 air conditioning units. Will we recommend the place or book again if we go back to bali? Absolutely
