"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
"Quiet & peaceful. Enjoyed the privacy"
We enjoyed our stay very much. Two disappointments, 1 the spa was broken & could not use it for the first night & day. 2. We would have appreciated having airport shuttle to the Villas. We were charged $200,000 by the 'taksi' from airport to the villa.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great staff and service."
when we arrived at the kanishka we had booked into a 1 bedroom with spa. the room we were given was nothing like the photos we had seen online so we complained. luckily the only room they had left was a 2 bedroom private pool villa which they upgraded us too! it was great. the breakfast every morning was wonderful and the staff were always friendly […] and helpful. there was a lot of mosquitos however the staff were doing all they could and would light mosquito coils every evening on turn down. the location was ok but over all a good experience.

Loved it! Staff incredibly friendly amd helpful. Only complaints- other guests are very loud and the shower heads are quite weak. Would recommend!Genuine 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

"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
Gezien de positieve evaluaties hadden we hoge verwachtingen van Kanishka Villas. Dit bleek in praktijk tegen te vallen. Het is een soort appartementencomplex, met niet echt een goede ligging (15 min van strand). Onderhoud van de Villas laat ook wel wat na. Daarbij is het idee van ontbijt op kamer leuk, maar als ze nooit op tijd kunnen leveren en de […] kwaliteit daarbij ook maar redelijk is valt dit ook tegen. Personeel is super vriendelijk en heel behulpzaam. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Couldn't have asked for more"
11/20/14 Marnie R
Just before I left for Bali, I read some awful reviews of Kanishka and I was worried that it was going to be a let down. However, when we arrived, the staff were friendly and the villa was gorgeous. I was excited!! I purchased a package deal thru a coupon type site for Kanishka, so we had 5 nights with a bunch of inclusions. I was certainly not disappointed. The comments about the pool being too cold were ridiculous! After the scorching heat it's refreshing and invigorating to jump into a cool pool. It's wasn't cold, just cooler than most you will find in Asian resorts etc. The sun didn't shine all day on our private pool deck, but from about 9am ish thru to 12-1pm. For me, that was enough. The bedroom aircon was not too cold and perfect for the space, which meant we slept comfortably and without waking up sniffly. The outdoor bathroom was lovely, but I would personally prefer indoor, as showering and doing the usual female beauty routine (minus the make up) proves sticky and sweaty... Not ideal but but not impossible to work with. Comments about "insects and lizards" I found was completely absurd...it's Indonesia people! You are going to find foreign little creatures around! Sure the mozzies are a little freaky, but the staff come in and spray the room and light insect coils for ward them off. I didn't have one problem with ANYTHING here at Kanishka. Again, staff are lovely and helpful and ALWAYS say hello when you pass them. Location wise, I feel this place is ideal, as it's not on a main road, but just around the corner from all that you need. A 20 mins walk to the beach, short taxi ride to Ku De Ta and Potato Head and a wee bit longer to Kuta. Highly recommend this villa and keep an open mind when reading other negative reviews about it.
"Nice property, ALOT of room for improvement"
11/15/14 Matt B Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Hotel has such potential... We checked in for a night in September in one of their 2 bedroom private pool villa's We walked in and were absolutely amazed - The room was extremely new and modern but, we started noticing some things about the property that definitely should be addressed. 1. Besides the fact the pool was completely freezing and seemed there was little or no sun light in the outdoor area... 2. We walked into one of the bedrooms upstairs, although modern the outdoor bathroom was absolutely covered in bugs in the sink - We were OK with this as we just washed them down... 3. As we walked out of our villa to go to dinner, we heard meowing coming from our room, We checked what this was all about and there was a stray Bali cat in the upstairs bathroom that was trapped, I called reception to come and get rid of it, and after 30 minutes of waiting I figured I was best to do it my self, so wrapped it up in a towel and let it go outside, Then when we asked for a new towel, it seemed a bit of an inconvenience for reception. 4. We got back and and began watching TV (trying to as it was all Indonesian channels and no international channels), so played some DVD's instead - The pool water feature was that loud we turned it off (as there were no doors to shut over) and found the mosquito's were slowly but gradually multiplying by the dozen - We called reception to see if there was something they could do, apparently they 'fumigate the room twice a week', by this they mean they come and spray the mozzies that are around and light 2 or 3 mosquito coils, Which - we were fine with - just had to wrap ourselves up to avoid being bitten again. 5. I placed a glass on the couch side table whilst we were watching movies and the thing totally collapsed, so I eventually ended up fixing it myself by wedging it back between the couch like it was. 6. We decided enough was enough at about 2am because a massive rat ran across the room, up over the coffee table where our food was and under the couch - Yes - appeared to have lived under there with a few mates... I called reception back to address the rodent issue 2 people came at about 2.30am to address after we had waited about 20 minutes, and when we explained the issue to them, they laughed with each other said something in Indonesian and asked what they wanted them to do... I explained I wanted to see a manager to discuss what had happened all night, and of course he wasn't working, It was a good thing we had double booked our accommodation for that night in our 3 STAR! Hotel in the middle of Legian and had somewhere to go back to. I spoke to the manager 2 days later as he visited our hotel and I explained exactly what had happened, I said we didn't end up enjoying the villa at all due to all the problems that occured and wanted to know what kind of refund he could offer (I wasn't expecting a full refund), but he couldn't offer it to us at all - He offered us a 1 hour massage, that we could have paid $7 down the road for... I am a travel agent, and addressed the problem with the supplier I booked through and the reply I got (7 weeks later due to the hotels 'delay') was that they were not going to offer any kind of refund, as we had been there until we were supposed to (referring to the 2 in morning checkout).. Will never recommend this property to friends, family or clients - Will stick to the original plans of the Villa's next time!
11/14/14 HKarina Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
It was with some trepidation that we arrived here after reading some recent reviews. However we are now at day 3 of 5 and everything has been perfect. One bedroom villa. Private pool does get sun morning and afternoon - but in Bali heat hardly a mandatory requirement anyway and indeed at 7 pm water is still warm. Extremely quiet. Very attentive and responsive staff. The whole complex is fogged twice a week and every evening bedroom is sprayed and mossie net set up around the bed as well as mosquito coils placed in outside lounge area and bathroom. Breakfast brought to villa is excellent and daily cleaning team efficient. Heaps of good restaurants including one Mexican and one Spanish within a few metres! Read this in the context that my husband is verrrry picky lol!

Before you even consider this, FORGET it!!!! We totally hate everything, the pool hardly sees any sun, we asked for a refund and neither the Manager or the reservations team did anything to cooperate. One disaster after the other, the wifi didn't work,they took half day playing with our time as the Manager avoided us. We we were 4 friends who travelled half the world to make thus trip and lost an entire day. save yourselves and don't book this for your own good. We finally get upstairs and find 3-4 lizards in the room, the sheets felt discolored and dirty and the second ac in the 2 bedroom villa on top floor did not Work!! so its hot and I'm currently sharing this with you are looking to book it. DONT! THE TV doesn't have any international channels eit her. We still demand a refund and are totally disappointed. This is not how we planned our 1st day at these villas.
"Family Holiday to Kanishka Villas"
10/16/14 tony g Perth, Australia
I would just like to recommend to anyone who stays at the Kanishka villas not to trust putting their money or valuables in the safe as we have just returned having $600 stolen from the safe, which as it was in the hotel safe was not covered on our insurance (thanks for that one Allianz), also it was stated that every time the master key is used to gain access to the safe in an emergency, two people sign it out, which is not the case as when our friends had them use the key to get in their safe no record was in their key log of the key ever being used. Also be careful if your kids are on the top floor as when we opened both doors on the wardrobe to check to see if we had left anything before departing the whole thing came away from the wall and fell on top of us. The pool is also very cold as it is always in the shade. Not a good place if you are prone to mozzy bites as lounge is completely open on one end. I must state that the staff at the villas are very pleasant and will help out anytime, especially the ladies at reception.

Offering both 1 and 2 bedroom options the villas at Kanishka have been meticulously planned to present the guest with the highest levels of comfort and luxury. Service and attention to detail is nothing short of first class and we found the staff will go to any lengths to ensure your stay is a memorable one. There is a very high standard of interior design in both the furnishings and facilities available in each villa. Location is first class, just 20 minutes from the international airport the Kanishka Villas are located down a quiet lane within a stones throw of the highly regarded Bali Deli. Be sure to stop in here for a fine selection of world-class goodies and an excellent cup of coffee. The villas are just a few minutes walk from Bali's best boutiques, spa facilities, restaruants and the wonderful beaches of Seminyak and Legian are but a 10-minute stroll away. The Villas are a match for any 5 star destination and the living arrangements are centred on the generous and inviting private swimming pool, large relaxing sofas, wide open dining, fully equipped kitchen, sun-deck with loungers - all designed for undisturbed relaxation. And, with the large 42-inch television, sound system, DVD player, and high-speed internet access, you can remain connected and informed! Thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing and offering top class service and a sensational array of in-house dining options to cap things off.
"One of the best villas in Seminyak"
10/10/14 Alinaxo Holland Village
We booked a four nights stay at the villa to celebrate my birthday.The villa was beautiful and spacious. With our own private pool it was an oasis for us. They sent me a birthday cake to my villa, but we went out so they left it in the fridge. The staffs were very helpful as they helped us made dinner reservations at Potato Head and Ku De Ta for dinner. We asked the receptionist if they could help us arrange a personal driver to take us to the attractions we would like to visit. Within an hour everything was planned by the receptionist which was impressive. Breakfast was served in the villa and the receptionist would call us the day before to check with us at what time we would our breakfast to be served. Guests were given a choice of either local or international breakfast.The location of the villa is close to the main roads, restaurants, massage places, art galleries and shops.Overall we enjoyed our stay.
"Lovely EVERYTHING ! "
09/27/14 LeoLongo Perth, Australia
So we arrived on Tuesday , about 3 hours early for check in !! This can really suck when you want to just offload your things and relax after running around . However , the staff was soooo lovely , they took all of our things , and put us in a spare one bedroom villa so we could have a rest until our rooms were ready . We swam in the private pool for about an hour , and our room was good to go . The staff made the experience so much more pleasant . I don't need to tell you too many details about the room , as everything written on their website is spot on . Breakfast is served to you whenever you want it , and the food was good . The location is great , nothing is too far , we walked to most places in seminyak including the beach - 15 mins , the bin tang supermarket - 10 mins , and everything in between ... There's a great Mexican joint called TACO CASA , and it's about 5 minute drive from villa. The people in the area were all really sweet and were always willing to help without ever asking for anything ... There's also this super funky hair salon 2 mins down the road and we couldn't resist taking the kids in for bogus haircuts haha oh oh and check out a shop called 'somewhere' , its really cool ... Wow long review ... Really beautiful villa with matching staff ... If I had to complain about anything , I'd probably say that there's too many mosquitoes in Bali haha but the staff spray your rooms and put coils out for you every day
"Was soooo impressed!!!!"
09/11/14 NatalieBr00ke Melbourne, Australia
I cant even begin to say how impressed and happy with our villa my partner and I were! I am very fussy with accommodation and had become quite obsessed with checking trip advisor for updated reviews prior to my trip. I was getting a bit worried at the recent mixed reviews. Upon arrival i was WOWED when i entered the villa! It was amazing! I cant understand how these villas have gotten any negative reviews. We arrived at the airport 4 hours late and our airport transfer was still patiently waiting with our name board. (thanks Sandy!) My pool had sunlight and heaps of sun to sun bake all day. (villa 16) The pool water was warm. In the villas the ceiling fans were enough to keep us cool and when we had had enough of the hot weather we could escape to the bedroom where all the doors could be kept closed to keep the cold air in from the air conditioner. The breakfasts were on time and delicious and the in room massages were amazing! When we got back every night we found our bed turned down and mosquito coils burning. The best part was the staff. The girls on the front desk were sooo helpful! They seriously could not be any nicer! They helped us book our day trips/excursions and took the stress out of our holiday! The building manager was there with the owner towards the end of our stay and they were both lovely and polite. These villas are in the perfect spot. Right near all the nice shops in Seminyak and plenty of good restaurants. I think had i gotten other accommodation in a different location, i wouldn't have enjoyed my trip as much. Me and my partner want to go back to Kanishka Villas again next year ... would definitely recommend Kanishka! 5 stars from me! Cant wait to get back there. - will add photos in a few days

We stayed at Kanishka for 8 days and loved everything about it. We were initially concerned about not having a central pool area but loved the privacy of our own space in the centre of Seminyak. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The villa and surrounding grounds were spotless . The location was perfect. Breakfasts were delivered on time and always good. It was so nice to be able to enjoy them in the privacy of our own courtyard. We loved the large bathrooms and spaciousness of Kanishka and would like to return when we visit Bali next.
