"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

"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

MIKE! We are having an amazing time in Bali, thanks to your beautiful attentive staff. Dewi and Dayu have been so kind and helpful. Today we have a driver organised for us, as the taxis have been very difficult. Thanks for all your help in getting us organised for our first visit. We have certainly fallen in love with this beautiful Island of Gods. X ~ Nel Kenworthy

“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

Hi Mike,

Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and to your lovely staff esp Nyoman and Putu who provided us with EXCEPTIONAL and extremely hospitable service during our stay.

I had the unfortunate experience to have my bag stolen on the last night of our stay with quite a bit of money (we had been out for a night of dining at Sarong, then a couple of bars for drinks before having this happen at Cocoon around 1.30am). Nyoman was so concerned and arranged for your driver to take me to the Police Station so I could report it etc. I felt terrible as I had no rupiah to give him at the time. Also at end of stay one of our girls gave Nyoman 800,000rp for the staff to share - I would of liked to have bumped it up a bit more too had I not lost my wallet. I would like to send another $50 for the staff to share with perhaps a bit to your driver that took me to police station..and wondered if I put it into your account whether you would be so kind as to distribute it next time you are there?? ~ Thanks  Fiona

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

The villas were lovely and the family and I were very happy with the rooms and layout of the villas.

Your two beautiful ladies were very helpful and you could not ask for better staff. They also said we were the best family although I'm sure they say that to all their guests Smiling face with smiling eyes. Please let them know how happy we were to have them look after us .

Pool great and plenty of clean towels , rooms cleaned perfectly each day . We had a lovely time and would certainly book the villas again and also recommend to others. ~ Kind Regards Carol Kingi

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


2011 rumivillabali staff 610xHi Mike, It was again a lovely stay with Rumi Villas and Wayan and also to see the other staff. The stair hand rail in Villa Yuyu was a welcomed addition and the new paint on ceilings freshens up the villa. The new ceiling fans are also more effective. To be honest Villas are now everywhere in Bali but we keep coming back for the staff. It really feels like a holiday when Wayan looks after us. Nothing is ever too much trouble and we really enjoy her company. We will be back. ~ Blake Millard


“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

DewiJust left Villa Yuyu on Wednesday. Dewi is amazing and we enjoyed your villa enormously.

I will definitely spread the word. I am not making another booking just yet, but will try again in the future.

Many thanks ~ Chris J.

This is a photo of Dewi as we took. We were always happy to see her!

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.

Hello Mike, I have been tardy about responding to your email about feedback. Your villas were just perfect. We really loved them and we loved having Dayu - she was fantastic. She would go out of her way to provide us the best possible service. We wanted for nothing while staying in the villas.

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


Hi Mike, We had a lovely time thank you. The Villas were lovely and your staff are just fantastic. It took a day or two to get used to being so well looked after but pretty soon Suseni was one of the family in our Villa and I know it was much the same for the others too. We loved the Villas, we loved the staff, the Guards were great, Bali is great. The people are so friendly and helpful and though the streets are an eye opener for an Australian! The shops were incredibly clean over there. I have never seen such clean supermarkets in my life. I was stunned. I actually stopped a lady in one supermarket and told her it was so clean and Australian supermarkets are pretty dirty and she got confused and apologised... and I am saying no no – its good here. Here is very clean!! So Bali has left her mark and one day we are sure to return. Thanks Mike for everything. Oh the airport pick up and drop off was great. So convenient not to have to worry about finding a taxi etc. And the gardens a so beautiful. We just love the walled path that leads to all the Villas and then the Villa gardens themselves are so lush. Oh... and boy do we miss Suseni and her mie goreng and nasi goreng in the mornings with left overs for lunch – not to mention washing done and dishes done etc etc!!

 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

Hi Mike, Thank you for your email enquiry about our stay at Rumi Villa. First thing is first... Your staff are AMAZING!!! In this aspect our expectations were not only met but truley exceeded! Wayan is beautiful! I was so impressed by the cleanliness of the villas and the maintenance carried out each day by Wayan. I will definately stay at Rumi again, the main reason being for the magnificent staff.. these guys are worth their weight in gold! I wish Justin and I could get loyal and kind staff like them here in Bendigo thats for sure!!! Cheers,

Sarah King

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

Rumi Villas.....our villa was fantastic 3 bedroom Villa Jepun What a truly wonderful experience we had from the start of our holiday5th June - 19th: From the very start of our many emails with Mike and the immediate responses we got to every question asked of him our holiday was fantastic.

Absoluely loved the villa, Locaion wise it was perfect fo us 5 girls. Every thing we needed was within walking distance, just a shot stroll down the laneway wich was well lit up at night, to either shopping,beach or the many wondeful restaurants virtually at your door step,To venture further was either a cheap taxi ride away or for a full days outing we had the wonderful Nyoman who greeted the girls at airport, then changed his hat and became the wonderful gardenern then another hat change and he was your tour driver for the day, and what a great job he dose at all three...a man of many talents and always with this warming smile...
