"a nice quaint villa admist the busy seminyak"
Very nice, clean and modern hotel though some details (like bath robe) needs to go through some maintenance. Staff were friendly and amazing. N location is good too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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
"스미냑도 가깝고 빌라도 럭셔리합니다"
스미냑이 가까워 음식점을 찾기 쉬웠고, 빌라가 참 이쁘고 마음에 들었습니다. 직원들 역시 영어에 능통하며 친절했습니다. 강추Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"the kindest service ever get!!!"
The location is perfect. It is just 5 minutes to get to the beach club like potato head, kudeta by car. The staffs are all very kind. Most of all our villa was so fantastic so clean so quite.Genuine Hotels.com 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
アジア圏内、特に老舗のヴィラは設備の不備が多いので心配でしたが、水回り全てOKでした。 スタッフもとても親切で、何から何まで至れり尽せり、すべての希望を拙い英語で伝えましたが、嫌な顔ひとつせず、筆記で説明までしてくれてとても助かりました。 絶対、絶対オススメです！Genuine Expedia 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
"Our own oasis in Seminyak"
01/09/15 Daniel L Stockholm, Sverige
Everything was really good with our villa (no 11) from the moment we arrived. The staff were friendly and we really felt that they wanted to solve what small problems we had. Their free buggy service with a small golf car (9-11 am and 12-2 pm) to the restaurant and shop area of Seminyak was really useful since the short five-minute walk usually was enough to start sweating in the heat. Great housekeeping and a good breakfast served in the villa every day. They also provided us with a good guide when we wanted to do a full-day tour to the Ubud area. The pool was amazing and was used a lot to cool down. We ended up never going to the beach just becase the pool was so nice! The design of the villas is very cool, but be prepared that the only air-conditioned areas are the bedrooms since there are no walls in the living room and actually only three walls in the bathrooms. We can't really decide what we thought of the bathrooms; the feeling of taking a shower outside was cool, but at the same time that meant that we had to share the bathroom with a few mosquitoes and the occasional lizard. Wifi connection was excellent in the living room but shaky or non-functioning in the bedrooms. Our only real hiccup was that since we were staying six nights we expected the hotel to pick us up / drop us off at the airport for free but since we had not made the reservation through them directly that would instead cost 30 USD each way.

I picked this villa from the Internet and I haven't been disappointed. The layout is really clever and the open design shouts Bali. We stayed over the jan holidays so it doesn't come cheap at about $6300 Aus dollars for seven nights for a two bedroom villa. Not sure of the pricing in the lower seasons. The staff are friendly and efficient. The bedrooms and bathrooms are big and the setting is private. The villa has good security given the latest alerts for Australians traveling here. The staff have organised all of our restuarnt bookings without a hitch. These villas are close to all the action. The things that need to be improved are ....food is ok not great....I love towels and the layar could improve the number and quality provided. Upon request we got extra provided. All in all our experience has been great and I would absolutely recommend anyway stay here.
"Great location, close to the action"

This is the second time we have stayed here, and recommend the villa for its location, cleanliness, staff and overall look and feel of the villa. The gardens make you feel like its you own little piece of paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip in Seminyak. We stayed in a one bedroom with private pool for 6 nights, over christmas. This was our 5th time to Bali and have stayed in a number of locations on the main and surrounding islands. The office organised a driver for a day trip to Ubud because our usual contacts weren't available. Whilst we didn't ask specifically for an english speaking driver, we were a bit disappointed with the driver on the day. We had a pre-arranged itinerary however we spent 45 mins trying to find the restaurant as he hadnt taken the time to look at its location on a map. We did address this with The Layar upon returning and they did take on our feedback. Make sure you make use of the butler / driver service which is free of charge to guests between 9-11am and 12noon and 2pm. They will drive you in the golf buggy to Seminyak Square, KuDeTa and surrounding close locations. Yes it is expensive, but we feel you get what you pay for.

As far as luxury and privacy, this is one of the best places to stay in Seminyak, hands down. They are so well maintained, the private pools are incredible, room service is excellent, style and architecture is fantastic. Food is excellent. Improvements could be made on email communication and we heard an argument occur one night that sounded like it was on the premises, though when we asked about what happened, we were told it was coming from a neighbouring hotel. It would have been nice for staff to just let us know all was well before we had to ask. Wifi a little slow, but that's not a big deal. Regardless, we had an amazing stay.

Quite possibly one of the nicest villa's my parter and I have stayed in, not just in Bali but anywhere. We found the staff helpful and respectful of privacy when we last stayed there, and we really felt like we were just hanging out at home... The insect/mosquito spraying wasn't all that pleasant when the pool area and gardens were filled with smoke, but hey I think it's only once a week and it only puts you out for about 15 mins... Staying there again at this Christmas as we can relax knowing how nice it will be.
"Didn't get confirmation until it was too late..."
11/24/14 belissimo29 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
i was really looking forward to staying at the layar but the staff wasn't attentive, ms desak kept me waited for my confirmation until the very last day before my departure and i had booked at other resort, worry i couldn't get any rooms later on. i emailed the hotel with carina replying on the 13th with other requirements and i sent her an email to reconfirm due to not having any reply from desak on the 20th but still didn't get a reply from carina ( she is on her holiday i heard ) i called and spoke personally to desak and made the arrangement and waited for my confirmation from the 18th, called again on the 19th and she said she has forgotten to email me and she said she will do so. on the 20th i called her again after 10 am and again she said she will email me and by late afternoon, i still didn't receive the confirmation email for payment, so i decided to book at other villa. on my arrival day in bali on the 21st, desak called and informed me that i haven't made any payments and that i might not be interested in staying at the villa, how is this possible when i still didn't receive the email? but then she informed me she has emailed me on the 20th and she forwarded me the email, but i must say i was so disappointment coz the email was sent but i didn't receive it, it must have been a communication breakdown there, or left at the outbox which didn't sent through... i do not know how this could have happened but i only hope that it was an honest mistake coz i was truly looking forward to staying at the layar... perhaps the next time, i will speak to the right person in-charge to assist me in my reservation...
"Great place to stay"
11/20/14 G1lly17 Sydney, Australia
I stayed here with my family for my fathers 60th last week and didn't find many floors. If you wanted something(restaurant booking, taxi, car service) it was a phone call to reception away. We needed a doctor one night and they where at our door in 20mins from calling reception. The free shuttle service was great to get to Seminyak Square for us to use and leaving and arriving was always greeted by all staff we passed. The included breakfasts where good but the eggs need to be cooked less(this might be fussy but it's the little things you remember) as we found most of the time the poached eggs hard. We did go out for breakfast down near Seminyak Square at a place called Sisterfield and they had excellent food and an amazing lime and mint granita. Some of the negatives are the inhouse prices for laundry and spa treatments. For the price of getting a shirt washed at the layar I could get roughly 7-8 items of clothing washed next door. Apart from the included head and shoulder massage I ventured else where to get my daily massage. This is a great location to stay and would recommend it to anyone.
"3 bedroom pool villa at the Layar"
11/05/14 kerry f Bunbury, Australia
Our party of 5 recently stayed at the Layar, which has beautifully appointed rooms and facilities throughout.All staff were friendly and helpful, and the lovely pool area was very relaxing. Located very close to Seminyak square with a free shuttle service to Central Seminyak. All meals were well presented and delicious. We did not make use of the spa services,but right next door,on the Main Street was the Cockor bodywork spa, which was very professional and reasonably priced. I have to make point about the beds! Although very comfortable,mattress is located in the centre of solid wooden platform( with pointed corners) which was the source of several damaged shins- not a good decorating feature!

My partner and i stayed at the Layar across 5 nights in late october/early november and can not fault the hotel at all. The staff are the friendliest i have come across and the rooms are stunning. In a fairly central location, very easy to get around Seminyak and Kuta from the hotel. The highlight for us was the incredible plunge pool and the luxurious bath tub in our villa. Everything was perfect from day one. I really cannot commend the staff enough, they catered to our every need, helped us to organise our trip and activities and always had a smile on their faces. The included breakfast was lovely and always served promptly, professionally and piping hot! We will be back.
"Quality accommodation, first-rate service!"
The Layar provided exquisite villa accommodation in a private, secure location with quality service from dedicated, friendly & attentive staff. We would highly recommend The Layar to anyone wishing to enjoy top quality accommodation & service at an affordable price. From our initial introduction to The Layar, through to our final farewells, our experience was fabulous! Nothing was too much trouble for staff & management. The villas were both private and comfortable. We thank the staff for all that they did to make our stay so memorable. We will definitely be coming back to stay at The Layar & will be sharing our positive experience with all of our friends. David & Janelle Tompson
