The Residence Seminyak provides guests with the privacy and independence of a stand-alone luxury villa but with access to helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff who want you to get the most out of your Bali holiday experience.
Each villa guest is looked after with personal service and attention by staff who can help arrange anything from finding a great tailor, booking a special table at one of the many incredible restaurants nearby or arranging a daytrip to a local temple.
- Villa manager
- General Manager, Putu Anom, is in overall charge of the villas and is the main point of contact for guests. Assisting him are two villa coordinators – one responsible for operations and one for administration and general guest information.
- Chef Yus Abadi and his team operate from a central kitchen within the villa complex and deliver breakfast to your door daily. They can also prepare barbecue buffets and special Balinese feasts on request and with appropriate notice.
- A team of housekeepers will tidy your villa on a daily basis.
- A driver and car is available (at a reasonable extra cost) to take up to six guests for tours around the island.
- Gardeners and pool attendants
- A team of gardeners and pool attendants work daily to maintain the immaculate standards at the villa.
- Spa staff/masseuse

- The Residence Seminyak is a gated complex and has 24 hour security.
Each morning guests at The Residence Seminyak will be treated to a complimentary breakfast delivered directly to their door. Go for a healthy start to the day with muesli, yoghurt and juice or eat local and choose from a mie goreng (fried noodle) or nasi goreng (fried rice). If that doesn’t take your fancy there’s always the continental breakfast, or ask the chef for organic eggs cooked any way you like with bacon and sausages.
Guests may also wish to try The Residence Seminyak’s, famous barbecue featuring chicken wings, garlic prawns, pork satay and seafood delights such as clams, lobster, crab and squid. Or gather friends and family together for a traditional Balinese feast including mixed satays, pepes ikan, urap, and rice followed by the delicious traditional dessert of black rice pudding with coconut milk .
Those preferring to self-cater have a fully equipped kitchen in their villa and staff will happily advise on where to source the freshest and best local and imported ingredients. But with a multitude of world-class restaurants on the doorstep, dining out may well be the more attractive option.
Children at The Residence Seminyak
The self-contained, villas at The Residence Seminyak provide a wonderful space for families to holiday, with access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
The two, three and four bedroom villas are a great size for families – big enough to have time out yet not too big that you lose each other – and their swimming pools are ideal for toddlers as each end is shallow enough for them to safely splash around in.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, highchair and car seat) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page; there’s plenty in the area to keep kids of all ages amused throughout the holiday. If parents fancy a night out, staff at The Residence Seminyak can happily arrange babysitting for a reasonable extra charge.
There are a number of excellent spas within easy walking distance of The Residence Seminyak, try Bodyworks for a body scrub and massage, and JazB salon in Seminyak Square for an oxygen facial, or if you don’t wish to leave your villa just ask the staff to bring the spa to you! The Residence Seminyak can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of your own villa by our fully trained therapists (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Our signature massage. A rejuvenating and stimulating blend of techniques combine long massage strokes with great stretches (Shiatsu, Swedish, Thai, and Reflexology).
A marvelous choreography performed by two therapists working in perfect harmony produces an unforgettable journey.
Mineral rich Flores Island Sea Mud is mix with the essential oil of cedar wood, cananga, orange and thyme, which is rubbed to exfoliate the skin, leaving you relaxed and refreshed.
The Residence Seminyak has a seven-seater car and driver available for guests to hire should they wish to go sightseeing or simply to shop in air-conditioned comfort. The daily charge is for rentals of up to eight hours, with any additional time charged as an hourly extra.
If additional or after-hours transport is required, don’t hesitate to ask the staff to call one of the island’s safe and reasonably priced metered taxis.
The Residence Seminyak is at the epicentre of Bali’s most exciting and cosmopolitan district. The buzz is apparent the moment you step out from your peaceful villa oasis. Shopaholics will be in seventh heaven. Gone are the days when ladies fashion in Bali was limited to batik rayon sundresses. The last few years have seen a flood of new designer boutiques in the Seminyak area. In Jalan Laksmana (Eat Street) you can even shop between courses should you wish! Boutiques include Paul Ropp, Biasa, Magali Pascal, Anouck, Lily Jean, Bamboo Blond, Dinda Rella, Innuendo, Religion, Body & Soul, Buddha Wear, M. Harcourt, Pura Vida, and Uma & Leopold to name but a few. Kids fashion stores include Kidsagogo and Kiki’s Closet. For art lovers, galleries worth visiting include Randelli Gallery, Biasa and Kendra. In neighbouring Kerobokan you can rummage for treasures through cluttered little stores and dark junkshops crammed to the ceiling with curios and ‘made-to-order’ antiques, derive inspiration from classy homeware shops, or wander through huge furniture warehouses. For furniture and homewares check out Lio Collection, Christy, and Sun. Soft furnishings abound at Haveli, Sunbebek and Disini, and Geneva is the one-stop shop for handicrafts.
You could eat out at a different restaurant in Seminyak every night – for months – and still not run out of options. Jalan Laksmana (also known as Jalan Oberoi and Jalan Kayu Aya) is Bali’s fashionable ‘Eat Street’, offering plenty of high-end restaurants including Sarong and Nutmegs at Hu’u Bar. Then there’s La Plancha, a rustic beach bar between Double Six and Chez Gado Gado: very popular, with good tapas, very reasonably priced drinks and live music and DJ events. A short taxi to Kerobokan will bring you to Sardine and Métis (from the owners of former and fabulous Kafé Warisan) and Naughty Nuri’s Batubelig (a franchise of the original in Ubud) famous for barbecue ribs and wicked Martinis. Mid-range dining options here include Wah Wah Gourmet Burger Winebar which specialises in sassy burgers with sexy connotations, and numerous other cheap ‘n cheerful options.
And when you’re shopped and dined out, Seminyak beach is just moments away. Balinese sunsets are legendary and the west facing beaches around Seminyak provide the ideal spot to relax and watch the sun sink below the horizon while you sip a cocktail from one of the many beach-front bars such as chilled out La Lucciola; new kid on the block, the Potato Head Beach Club or the infamously trendy Ku Dé Ta.
