“The Rumi Villa is absolutely fabulous !! It is perfectly situated in Seminyak, right in the heart of the main area but it seems like it's far away from the city because of how peaceful and quiet it is. Mike is a wonderful host. Always ready to answer any queries and to help in any way he can. There is an excellent manager Nyoman who took such good care of us - she managed all the bookings, made all the reservations, took are of every need. Narviti, the cook, was lovely!! Puttu the watchman was great and very helpful!! The villa is so beautiful - so peaceful and quiet, so so spacious an so aesthetically designed! Our holiday was fabulous mainly because of Villa Rumi and the staff! We are now traveling to Bali twice a year and will only stay in beautiful and awesome Villa Rumi! Thank you for a beautiful stay Mike and team!! ” ~ Shil


Mike, Your place was great! We really enjoyed staying there and wished we could have stayed longer! It was the nicest place we stayed in on Bali, especially with all the amenities. The beds were great, the staff very friendly and it just had all the luxury we are used to at home! Just great! We don't have any suggestions for improvement. Just keep it this way and make sure it is not fully booked next year, so we can stay there again (just joking!) :-) Best wishes, Kirsten

Wedding Planning

Our time at Rumi Villa was wonderful. The villas are beautiful, well-kept and so close to all the amenities. The best part of our stay was Nana. What a lovely lady, so thoughtful, kind and welcoming. She made our stay perfect. She couldn’t do enough to help or assist us; including organising a visit to the 4 bedroom villa so we could have a look with our wedding planner. It was very funny as it turned out that I knew one of the ladies staying in there. Dave and I are so looking forward to having our wedding in the villa next year and I am 100% sure our guests will fall in love with Rumi Villas as much as we did. My only issue is that you do not have a 1 bedroom villa as Dave and I would like to come over and stay more often but a two bedroom villa is just too big for the two of us. Our stay at Rumi has converted us to staying in villa styled accommodation and it would be hard to go back to staying in other accommodation now. Thank you so much for making our short stay so welcoming. Nana is a gem and we hope to see her next July. ~ Amanda

The Wedding

Hi Mike, The wedding was wonderful, the villas amazing as usual. We can't wait to come back and stay again and again. When I get the professional photos I will send you some that show off the villa as a wonderful wedding location otherwise I have a few on my Facebook page but it doesn't show off the villa as these were taken by friends. Thanks for all your wonderful team did. The maids at truly stupendous and make everyone's stay so much more enjoyable. Your team is fantastic! ~ Amanda

Hi, Just got back to Australia yesterday from Bali, (photos to come shortly) I don't even know what to say except our experience at Rumi Villa's was without a doubt the best accommodation I have ever stayed at whilst on holiday's we had Dayu as our maid and she is the most kind hearted, fun and lovable person ever! I miss her dearly and I cannot wait to come back to Bali to stay once again at your accommodation! Absolutely fantastic! I miss you Dayu! Oh and the security was always helpful and very kind whenever we need their assistance! 100% recommend this place without a doubt!!! ~ T. Raha

Everyone at the reception said how great the it was and how great it was having it at the villa.

Everything went really smoothly. Your staff were terrific and very helpful. I have attached a few photos (they don't do it justice).

Hope you and Ruth are well.

Hi Mike, Rumi Villas is our home away from home. We love flying into Bali for a long weekend from Darwin, knowing that Rumi awaits us. The villas are clean with an amazing relaxing atmosphere. The maids are exceptional and a main part of why we return; they are helpful, discrete and welcoming. I love the villas so much we had our wedding here. If you want to relax or party in a tranquil setting that is close to ALL the amenities in Seminyak than Rumi Villas are the place to stay.

Mike. We hope to visit again before the end of the year.  ~ A, Lingwood

 

 

We had an absolutely fabulous stay at Rumi Villas. Id like to especially make special mention of our maid Dayu who was an absolute pleasure the whole time we were there. Me and mum were over there to plan my wedding and I think my mum is keen to book out a few villas with you next time and bring the whole family over for the wedding to stay in seminyak.Thanks so much for everything, look forward to staying with you again in 2014. ~ Jill :)

My family and I travel extensively. Our best holiday ever was in Bali at Rumi Villas and especially at Villa Rumi. It was a true complete holiday with the villa fantastic in every way.No cooking, no washing, no ironing, no need to plan much. It was all done. Dayu, Nyoman and Narviti were exceptional staff and made us feel at home. Nothing was too much for them and they looked after my 16 month old Alex like he was their own. Thank you Mike for the best time ever. Cant wait to book again. ~The Hamilton Family of 5

Kelly and Tom sent us these fabulous photos of their wedding in Seminyak Bali.

Hi Mike, We had an awesome time at Villa Rumi (four bedroom) we will definitely book again, we usually come around the same time every year so will be in touch.

As for feedback, your staff were lovely, the girls in our group all appreciated not having to take a bag full of washing home, that was awesome!! The villas location was perfect for us, only a hop skip and a jump to some of the best eateries and shops that Seminyak has to offer. The rooms were lovely, the beds were so comfortable. Your girls at the villa were very efficient doing the rooms, they were perfectly made up every morning as they were as if we had just arrived. The towels, especially some of the “pool” towels could use replacing as some are looking a little worn but this was pretty minor in the whole scheme of things. Mozzie spray provided was appreciated but these weren’t too much of a problem if you kept your personal spray up. We had some power problems but the security guard and villa manager handled these quickly and left us with enough information to sort it ourselves if by chance they weren’t there, we do understand that in Bali these things happen, you only have to look at the wiring on the power poles to understand why (lol). We felt safe and secure there. There was the odd rooster early morning wake up, but we got used to this and used it as a bonus to get us up and make the most of our days while there. Thank you again. We will be back!!! ~ M. Armstrong

... everyone who stayed at the villas thought they were great. The staff were all terrific, but Wayan was awesome. There are people already talking about when they could stay next.

Our wedding day was great and everything went relatively smoothly. RUMI looked amazing! Everyone at the reception said how great the it was and how great it was having it at the villa. Everything went really smoothly. Your staff were terrific and very helpful. The catering was outstanding and enjoyed by all. The photos don't do it justice - our guests stated they thought it looked like a fairytale.

Hi Mike, We were over the moon with our stay it was wonderful. The villa was fantastic and so were the staff. They couldn't be more helpful. The driver was beautiful and very safe on the road. The villa was in a perfect location to everything and we are hoping to return next year and will definitely book your villa. Thanks so much. I will post photos to Rumi villa Facebook and rate the villa on trip advisor. I have a few friends going to Bali and I have encouraged them to look up your villas Thanks so much! ~ Bec

"What can I say? ….. my sister and I could not fault our entire experience at Rumi Villas. Our maid Dayu was informed, discreet and efficient. I sensed her pride in caring and providing for us, and the Villas as a whole. She represented you well. Were we to ask, nothing would have been too much trouble. As someone who worked for 27 years in the service industry - I was impressed. As a business owner - I would be delighted to have staff create such a good impression. I would have no hesitation in recommending your Villas to potential clients and am more than happy for you to use my testimonial in support of your business. Now….need to start plan my next getaway…" Kindest regards Margo

"I wanted to thank you for all you and your wonderful team for all your assistance during our stay. The Villa Manager (I forget her name) organised some essentials for our babies on the first morning and Dewi our housekeeper was an absolute lifesaver with babysitting the kids when I needed some help. The kids absolutely loved her. The villa is gorgeous and we couldn't fault anything, the lovely security guard even helped me order in dinner a couple of times as it was a bit tricky taking both babies out to restaurants We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and no doubt we will be back" Thanks again - Candice
"We had a great holiday, thank you. We all really enjoyed the Villa, the location was great and convenient for has being close enough to Eat St but also far enough back to get off the main road. Suseni was very lovely and extremely helpful, anything we requested she got done right away and was very friendly and happy to chat. The security were also very helpful when we needed anything in the time that Suseni wasn't there (after 4pm)." Thank you ~ Devyn
"Finally home from our amazing trip to Bali. Thank you so much! We had so much fun, you have amazing staff. Suseni I can't speak highly enough of her. She just went over and beyond for our family. Such an amazing cook and would stay late to watch our kids. Took my son and I down to Bali Clinic when he wasn't feeling well. Sat with my daughter while she got her hair braided. Seriously when we come back we can't wait to have her again. And all the while, doing her normal duties cleaning our villa and doing our laundry. Wish we could bring her home with us. The Security guards, both Matty's were so nice to talk to and also both were very helpful. Picking up our scooters and making us feel so safe overall. I would recommend you guys in a heart beat! In fact I did but you had no more availability. haha Once again, Thank you so much!!! Expectations exceeded!" Kind Regards, Jemma & Sam Perrett
“This place was wonderful! We only got to stay 2 nights but wished it would have been longer. The beds are amazing and the rooms are so spacious. We didn't leave the villa for the whole two days. The house keeping lady who is here all day was lovely and very friendly and did our laundry!! If you stay here it will not disappoint.” ~ Samantha

"Thankyou – we are sad to be home after a wonderful stay at Villa Rumi. Everything was fabulous, the Villa is incredible and suited our family well with the small kids able to run around with plenty of space while still being safe with the pool fence. And fortunately none of them fell in the ponds! Narwiti and Nyoman were wonderful and looked after us all exceptionally well. They were very flexible and catered to whatever we needed – cooking, cleaning, babysitting and just generally interacting with us and the kids. My daughter asked me when we got home when we would get to go and see Narwiti again! The security staff were also great, and the drivers who we used. The location of the villa is very handy to the main street, and to be honest we spent most of our time at the villa in the pool. The memberships to Canggu were also great, particularly being able to go to the Splash water park a couple of afternoons, and we also used the tennis courts there. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. The only thing we found a bit of a hazard was the slippery tiles when they were wet, both in the bathrooms and outside when it had rained/garden watered. Not much you can do about that other than wear shoes, but it may be worth advising people of that as the kids had a few spills. My parents stayed in Villa Nyaman for a few days too and enjoyed that. The only problem they had was some bug that bit them in bed, but as soon as Nyoman, Narwiti and Wayan were told they went straight over there, changed the bed linen and sprayed and there was no issue after that. They were very apologetic but it wasn’t their fault! I have already recommended your villas to a couple of friends who are looking to head to Bali, and we would certainly stay with you again, as the Villa was perfect for our needs. Thanks again, we had a great time and can’t wait to return to Bali." ~ Melinda H from Melbourne, Australia

Good morning Mike,

I would like to thank you on behalf of the whole group for sorting out our accommodation and being patient with us, it is sometimes tough to organize everything with such a big group of people.

The villa we stayed at (Four bedder) was just amazing, we loved the whole experience. The rooms are spacious and the living area is perfectly positioned in front of the large pool - perfect for a large group of people. The place was kept clean through out our stay and i would like to give special thanks to the amazing staff at the villa, they accommodated for every need of ours (be it the great food, massages or the Bintangs) in a timely manner. Nyoman and her team certainly do a great job with the villa!!

We will definitely be recommending this villa to any friends of ours who are coming to Bali and i am pretty sure this wont be the last time you will be hearing from us as well ;)

Cheers, Navin

This was the most amazing accommodation one could think of. We were blown away by the size of the place and great location. Villa staff made breakfast for us every morning and would go out and buy us whatever food or drink we requested. Clothes were washed and ironed daily, bedrooms and bathrooms cleaned perfectly. All with a smile and a friendly chat too! Security out the front was comforting and also ran any little errands needed. Pool was great as was the outside lawn area, one suggestion could potentially be the addition of push bikes! Thank you! - Nathan

 


Hi Mike, The girls had such a nice time and said the staff were fantastic. In my daughters words " The Villa's are even more beautiful in real life than in the photo's". I will definitely pass on the info to others and get the girls to post some things up. Thanks again so much. It was a very nervous time for all of us parents and all went so well. Regards.

“Mike was very responsive when it came to reservation and booking. The welcome package we received via email was informative. Once we arrived, the staff and manager were polite, friendly and helpful. The staff helped us buy groceries and cooked meals for us, and they were delicious! Everyone working there were extremely accommodating especially in terms of late check-out and taking care of our luggage while we waited for our late night flight out of Bali. The villa was clean and every bedroom came with a separate bathroom,which was fantastic. The villa was comfortable and warmly decorated. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return for another visit. ” ~ Christine


bamboo pool fence

Hi Mike,

What a shame the trip is all over. We had the best time. Can't wait to get back to Bali. The villa was fantastic. We would recommend to anyone.

The pool fence was fantastic and also the cot, pram and high chair. We had trouble with the pram in the streets, but it was great when we got out and about. 

I have passed on to a few people how good the villa was. We are heading back in October for another wedding, so when I find out the dates I will let you know and hopefully we can book this villa or one of the Rumi Villas. I got to have a look at them and they were also fantastic. Anyway.... Thanx once again for all your help and I will be in touch in the near future

Belinda

the villa staff made healthy delicious breakfasts!I have stayed many times at Rumi villas and the service of the friendly beautiful staff and caring hospitality is amazing I always request Wayan she is my favourite staff member her scramble eggs and pancakes are so yummy for breakfast.

The location is perfect, right across the lane from Red Carpet Champagne Bar and close proximity to all the best Seminyak shopping & hot spots/beach clubs. The pool in the 3 bedroom is such a perfect size to do laps and exercise/water aerobics.

There is a blender in the kitchen so Wayan was able to make me my fresh blended fruit juices in the morning YUM so perfect for a Bali boot camp health kick!! Mind you, the fridge is super cold to keep your Bintangs icy cold as well! Even the security are so friendly and helpful and this 24hour service and care really makes you feel safe and at home in Bali. I highly recommend for families (can put up a pool Fence for kids if need be), couples, groups, and friends. No matter who you travel with you will enjoy your time at Rumi Villas. I would like to thank Mike and all the staff for a wonderful holiday, we enjoyed so much and can't wait to be back again soon.

Hi Mike, Our trip to Bali was amazing and we had a wonderful time. The Villa's were fantastic and the staff there were absolutely delightful. Wayan, who we actually had look after us was just sensational, nothing was ever a task for her and she was so great with my two small children. Our experience there was wonderful and we will definitely be heading back next year at some stage!

Kelly Edwards

Hi Mike, We just recently holidayed in Bali, and stayed in your 3 Bedroom Villa “Jepun”. What a fantastic time my family & friends had! The villa’s were absolutely fantastic, very spacious, modern, private and very well looked after.

I think the most impressive aspect was that we had Nama as a full time house keeper! This was not expected at all, and valued everything she did for us. Cooking breakfast, house cleaning, even washing and ironing our clothes! Lovely nature and so helpful with finding places in Seminyak and always willing to assist us any way. Couldn’t speak highly enough! I just want to send through a final pic of all of us together. I know Nama doesn’t have email or internet, so she asked that we send it onto you. I will definitely be recommending your Villa’s to all our friends and family who are travelling to Bali, and anytime we go back, we will be sure to book again.

All the best. S and P Galloway ~ Australia

 

... thank you for such a great trip. The villas and staff exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait till our next trip (just trying to work out when we will come next year – hopefully during October again). The little things like the pool fence and stair gate just made life so much easier with the two boys. We would also like to sing the praises of Dewi. Nothing was too difficult for her and our boys are still asking when we will see her again. Thanks again and look forward to speaking over the next couple of months when we work out our plans for next year.

A. Webb ~ Victoria, Australia

 Hi Mike, Yes thank you we had a great time. Our stay was amazing. Nyoman and Narwiti looked after us so well and Putu and Ketut made us feel safe at night. Our drivers were great and everyone enjoyed the tours and massages. The villa was great we loved that we had privacy to enjoy the pool etc, The location was so convenient, close to shops and places to eat at night. We would not hesitate in recommending Rumi Villas to others. Thank you ~ Genene

It was  just wonderful, wedding went well, decorations and food etc were perfect! We’re off down south today for a week with the boys camping (quite the come down!), but I will send you a testimonial and some wedding pics you can use on your website when we’re back. In the meantime, thanks so much -- awesome memories forever. ~ Sharron & Steve

guests thrilled with the fabulous location of the villa in central SeminyakAs I sit here at work and tap away to your email, it's hard to believe that last week actually happened. Your villa is absolutely beautiful and what a fabulous central position. Everything was absolutely spot on with regards to your villa and the inclusions that came with it. The villa was spotless and the beds are enormous and particularly comfortable. Your staff were amazing, especially Gyoman and Wenieta. Everyone was great, but it was these two lovely ladies who we had the most exposure to and there was nothing that was too much trouble. How refreshing it was to experience the respectfulness and gratitude of the Balinese way.

Thanking you for your assistance pre our arrival with the addition of Tundra, Erin and Maree. Linda was shocked in the very best way. I've already been looking for cheap flights back.  Last but certainly not least, the company that you use for the bike tour was also amazing. Even though we cycled through torrential rain (at times) we felt safe every step of the way. Mikey was an amazingly funny and mature 18yr and did not for one second put our safety in jeopardy, it was one of the many highlights.

Many thanks again, I hope to be back soon. Regards, Karen
