This peaceful estate, is an oasis away from the excitement of bustling Seminyak. Hidden away from the main street, the one and two-bedroom villas are scattered amongst the lush greenery of the estate’s private gardens. It is an intimate retreat perfect for romance or as a relaxing getaway with the girls. Here you’re not too far from some of Seminyak’s best cafes, shops and attractions such as Seminyak Square, Ku De Ta and more, but you’re given a peaceful night’s rest thanks to the estate’s spacious grounds.
Rather than generic villas, there are only six exclusive, uniquely themed residences. Each comes with their own private pool and has been thoughtfully dressed with luxurious fixtures and plush furnishings that follow a theme. The chinoise-chic Oaini is a one-bedroom abode with chinoise touches such as Chinese calligraphy motifs, old, opium tables, satin cushions and other similar touches. There are also villas with a French theme, Japanese theme and more.
Awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, the resort is known for its relaxing ambiance, lovely villas and excellent staff service.
How to Get There
We recently stayed for a week in 2 bed villa Payaar.
The location was great and quiet at night, not much street noise. The beds were firm but comfy.
Breakfast cooked in the villa was good and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Were able to give us a late check-out which was excellent.
A few criticisms about the actual villa though.
2 bedroom can sleep up to 4 people but the outside area only had 2 cane sun beds (no cushions). Only other outside seating was a small wooden bench. Needless to say not much time sitting by the pool. Definitely needs more comfortable outside furniture.
The pool. Oh dear. I only got in once. I have arthritis in my knees and hips and there are no steps into the pool (yes, I should have looked closer at the photos!). There is only a ladder, which would have been fine but it was very short so I could not pull myself UP to get out, had to sort of beach myself on the edge and get my friend to help me stand. I have used ladders before with no problem, this one just too short so not much swimming for me !
Also no towel racks or anywhere to hang beach towels to dry outside. Or in the bathroom for that matter. Only one towel hook in each bathroom so the towels got hung over the shower screen or over the dining room chairs. Lounge furniture not so comfy either. One chair and one small cane lounge and a weird swing chair that looked like it should have been outside!
There was a mozzie coil burner outside but no coils, we had to buy some, and believe me we needed them!
Only a bar fridge in the kitchen, needs a full size fridge. Luckily we ordered Bali Esky Rental or we would have had no cold drinks.
Stayed in one night, thought we might watch a DVD. DVD player but no DVDs.
Did not realise there was transport available. Probably didn't read all the info properly but it was never offered either.
Laundry service was good, and the afternoon nibbles delivered to the villa also tasty.
There was a smell coming from all the drains but I think that is fairly common, have had this before in other places.
The mirrors in the bathrooms were discoloured, need replacing.
Overall the staff and location were good but wouldn't stay there again. Prefer somewhere where it is comfortable to sit around the pool and relax, and we didn't get that this trip.
The location of this villa is perfect if you like being close to the main eat street. We loved that we could walk everywhere in Seminyak, and we were extremely impressed with the service from all staff at Four on Drupadi. We will definitely be back and will recommend these villas to our friends.
The villas here are a prime spot if you want to stay right on the edge of Kuta and Seminyak. Its directly across from Eat Street, and about 10-15 mins walk to the beach.
We stayed in the Oasis villa, which was great for a couple. Very clean, large, outside/inside shower, and private pool. We'd stay there again if we came back.
