A stunning villa with lovely bedrooms and plenty of living spaces. There was a problem with the AC in 2nd bedroom (as there was where we stayed previously) and breakfast order occasionally wrong but in every other respect it was beautiful. Visually stunning and friendly staff - we very much appreciated a late checkout on the last day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stunning Honeymoon. Reteat."
I can not say enough positive things about the Layar. We stayed there for 8 nights during our wedding and the staff were fantastic. We had a 2 bed villa which was just as beautiful as the photos on the website. A little hard to find the first time but once you know where it is, you have no problem getting around.Genuine Expedia guest review
by far the best villas we have stayed at in seminyakGenuine Expedia guest review
２ベットルームに３泊しました。家族3人では贅沢な空間でプールも期待以 上の大きさでした。 ただ雨期のせいか水温が低く泳ぐ事はできませんで した。 トイレとシャワーが外にあるので部屋についていれば良かったと 思いました。スタッフの対応はフレンドリーで親切でした。 日本語は通じませんので！！Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"無需搭計程車 在水明漾商店區 方便逛街 遠離海邊 享受休閒簡約建築設計"
水明漾區有不少餐廳與商街 但是劣質的taxi 服務 更讓我覺得還是少坐為上策 來巴里島幾次都沒機會住玩在水明漾 這次有機會在agoda發現這家 強烈現代建築設計風的雙A字屋頂設計風的Villa的確物超所值 空間大膽運用與雙層層結合 巧妙的把視覺空間更是延伸 它的開放是室外餐廳與客廳區 將室內引向戶外庭園把花園帶進室內 有別於一般傳統Villa設計的花園室內化的端景窗景規劃模式 Layar 在此規劃設計上將內外溶合一體但不失獨立空間的本質 同時達到在不同角度皆發現相機裡可以尋找到更多美麗的建築巧思 值得一遊Genuine Hotels.com guest review
非常好而且設計特別，員工友善，但房間浴室淋浴花洒出水力度不夠及熱水不足！其中一間房間的單人牀尺碼比一般單人牀細小只得二呎半。Genuine Expedia guest review
完全開放式的設計與一般的Villa很不同, 服務人員很友善. Villa本身對於住客的隱私跟安全做的非常完善.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expensive but very good"
01/01/14 Johnnyglongford Jakarta, Indonesia
We booked one of the 4 bed villas over nye. It was pricey but the service and accommodation was excellent. On New Year's Eve our restaurant booking fell through and the staff even organized catering with 3 hours notice for a group of 18 people. Staff we're very attentive and polite and we're very good considering full occupancy. On the negatives- Phone in main area and bell didn't work and we had an hour delay on check in. All minor inconveniences really although if we didn't have local phones to call the reception from, it would have been an expensive call when we needed anything.
"Expensive for what you ultimately get"
12/31/13 DTA2014 Melbourne, Australia
The villas are spacious, but quite dated in comparison to other hotels and villas that are available in Seminyak for a similar price. We had many minor issues that compounded to make our stay pretty average compared to other times we had stayed in Seminyak. To begin with, the air conditioning was completely inadequate for the time of year, we had it running full pelt, yet still required a portable fan to cool the bedroom down at night. We had no hot water for three days, which wasn't a disaster, given the heat, but this really should have been picked up by the staff before we got in there and had to complain about it. The design of the villas is not great, for instance, the toilets and bathroom are quite old and are only partitioned from the dining area by a roll-up blind. The breakfast was pretty ordinary, although we were given large quantities, it had obviously been sitting around for a while before reaching us, this was evident by the food frequently being cold, wrapped in silver fool to try and keep it warm and served on soggy toast. Not uncommonly we found the dirty breakfast dishes still sitting around late in the afternoon upon returning to the villa after we had been out for the day. One time they had even attracted birds which were eating from the kitchen table! The internet often dropped out, requiring us to continually restart the wireless modem. Other private villas we have stayed at in the same area going for a similar price, had complimentary transport to beach, restaurants, bars airport etc... However the Layar does not have this facility, and you need to either walk, taxi or supply your own transport. Having said all this, the staff were extremely friendly and obviously at times were trying quite hard to please us throughout our entire stay. However this does not really make up for the comparative lack of facilities. In summary, the place is dated, and not really worth the money asked for, especially given the high quality of other private villas that are available in the same area for similar prices. I wouldn't stay here again because we have had better experiences at other villas/spas at a similar cost.
"Great Design and Location"
11/19/13 vehandojo Jakarta, Indonesia
We're staying in Villa 12 with three spacious bedrooms - all with cable TV, bathtubs and outdoor showers. One of the slightly smaller bedroom connects directly to the private pool, as well as the living area. There is a jacuzzi next to the pool. The roof is shaped like a sail or "layar", hence the name. The garden around the villa is beautiful. We love the fully-equipped kitchen and the big fridge. Juicer, and other cooking utensils, as well as dinnerware are all there. There's a coffee plunger, too, but you gotta bring your own beans and grinder - which we did! (Oh well, we even brought our own Aeropress and Kalita Wave.) No Nespresso, but there are some hideous instant coffee - if you like it. Many options for breakfast. Dining menu is not too extensive but convenient for emergency. Otherwise, the location is very close to the happening area of Oberoi, Kerobokan, Seminyak where we can get simply whatever cuisine we want. Service? Well, a butler is assigned for each villa, so who can complain? It's a recommended stay for those who seek privacy without being stranded somewhere in a secluded area of Bali.
"Small heaven within ã 3bed-rooms villa"
11/11/13 NuskaRianggono Jakarta, Indonesia
I stayed there only overnight, but my staying there so impressing. We got a 3bed-rooms villa with private swimming pool. The lay out of the villa so homy. Bathrooms so huge, divided into three sections for my room. The breakfast was really superb. We can choose our own breakfast differently between our group of six persons. We really treated as a super vip guest here
"Fantastic location and villa"
11/08/13 AliciaTrav81 Perth, Australia
One of the newer villas around in Seminyak. Fantastic location, just behind "eat street". The villa is very luxurious, rooms large and great large outside bathrooms. 3 couples stayed comfortably here and hardly left the pool. In villa beauty therapy was a highlight. Whilst a little more expensive than those places on the street - its still very cheap and well worth having it done in the comfort of your own villa. Grocer and Grind walking distance and a great lunch and breakfast place with good coffee. On minor point was the Wi-Fi kept dropping in and out. Will definitely recommend to friends and will be the place i stay next time.
"Best place on earth"
11/03/13 CamStair Melbourne, Australia
We loved every minute of our stay here. We've stayed at plenty of villas and hotels in Bali but the Layar is an absolute standout in so many ways and the location is about as good as you'll get (other than full beachfront). The design is stunning and apparently no two villas are the same. There is no spa as such - instead (even better I think) your treatments are done in your villa or (in my case) in our beautiful garden. The staff are all amazing and we were treated like royalty. We will be heading back as soon as we can!
"Great private pool"
10/17/13 travel t Sydney
The roof and ceiling of this villas is structurally amazing and the pool superb. You can go out for breakfast, lunch and dinner at 100's of nearby cafés and restaurants. The breakfast provided at the Layar needs huge improvement. The staff are great and do a good job. Beds large, though could do with more pillows and underlay. Overall very good.
10/11/13 GwenythM_13 Numurkah, Australia
My daughter and her partner took me to Bali for my 80th. I had been once before and stayed with them in a villa in Umalas which was nice. This time we stayed at the Layar and it was fabulous. We felt like we were in a world of our own. It was very private and so quiet. I stayed and had my tea in the villa while they went out for dinner. There was a good room menu selection and the food was lovely. It was very peaceful sitting by our pool and looking across our wonderful garden. We were only a short taxi ride from some wonderful shopping and our driver took me to Ubud and to a famous temple. He and all the staff were very pleasant and helpful. They could not believe I was my age. The appointments were very comfortable and there was even a kitchen if you wished to cook for yourself. But we never did. How very decadent! Oh well, back at home now in Numurkah. I hope I can go back soon. Perhaps for my 81st.
"Decent sized villa within the hub of Seminyak"
10/01/13 MichaelJT19 Thessaloniki, Greece
Stayed at the Layar in September 2013. The property is new, larger than the average villa in the Yak' and overall we were quite pleased with it. Entertainment system, large pool, bathroom were all highlights. Bedroom was air-conditioned well and quiet (unlike other villas in Bali). Breakfast was reasonable and layout of villas was adequate. Location a plus. Negatives: Only stayed for a few days it was mostly positive however it would have been better if they were more welcoming to some of our helpers we had with us, they were told they cannot wait in the lobby for us and had to wait outside in the heat. Overall a positive experience though and for the money would stay again. Not cheap but no where really is in Seminyak these days for a large sized private villa 5*.
