The Club Villas complex is just like a letter ‘U’, where the first entrance is just beside a restaurant on that streets with another entrance on the same street located after a few restaurants / places from the first entrance. The villas are just located between those entrances.
The villas are just like an individual houses with private pool, so the reception area is placed inside the first building on the right of the complex. You will notice this building after you passed the security post.The check-in was flawless, and after the process was finished; wI was escorted to the villas, the one bedroom villa with private swimming pool.
In my mind, the villa that I was going to stay, was just like a one bedroom plus a bathroom, similar to the one that I stayed at Lembongan Villas & Club (which is also under the Tjendana Resort Management).
After I opened the gate, there was a pathway to the house and the pool is just located beside the pathway.
When I opened the door of the house … I know that my imagination about ‘the villa’ was absolutely wrong … It was completely different with what I have imagined before. The house is just like a house, complete with big living room with LCD TV, kitchen area with the dining table, and a big one bed room with another LCD TV. The living room and the bed room are both have access door to the swimming pool.Now how about the bathroom?
The bathroom itself can be accessed from the bedroom, and heyyyyy … When I opened the bathroom door, whoaaa … the bathroom was very wide! It has three sections, yes … sections lol. First sections was the sink with the toilet closet. Second section was for the wide-round-bathtub. The bathtub was not from the fiber plastic like the ordinary bathtub, but it was made from cement! Lastly, the third section … The third section was the shower section with transparent glass as the wall 😉 Well I used mostly the first and the third section, and would love to use the second section but I had too many activities at that time and did not have much time to relax there *sad*…
Why I love staying in this place?
First, I would say that it seemed that I stay in a real ‘house’ rather than a villa or hotel. That’s because the place itself like a residential complex. When I walked out from the complex, I met the real Seminyak area which could get crowded on the evening, but when I walked into The Club Villas complex, I felt like I walked in some residential complex as it was quiet with not many cars inside the complex.I know that Oberoi Road is considered to be a crowded street, but I did not hear the noise from the street when I was inside of the villa.
Second, it has a kitchen area. The easiest thing to cook was of course something instant, just like the instant noodle. Just buy the instant noodle in many minimarts nearby, and cook it at night when you are feeling hungry 😉 Loove it! When I said ‘kitchen area’, so it meant the real kitchen with the stove, cooking utensils and the plates plus the spoon and fork. Well if you need extra water, there was no mineral water in a gallon haha!Third, it has the private swimming pool! I just love private swimming pool, so I could swim on the evening after I have done all of my activities on that day, or in the morning before I started doing anything.
Fourth, this place is really comfortable. It seemed that I could just everywhere … Well I meant not ‘everywhere’ everywhere. The couch was so comfortable that I accidentally fell asleep on that couch on my second night! I knew that the bed was the most comfortable to sleep inside the villa, plus it has many pillows!I thought these four points made this villa becomes really homey!
Located on the Oberoi Road makes The Club Villas is a good choice to stay if you do not want to use car or just want to explore the Seminyak area and nearby – as at certain hours the traffic could be worse, so I think it is better to use bike or motorcycle 😉
If I want to experience the real Seminyak feeling; I just needed to walk out from the complex, and tadaa!! Plenty of restaurants, plenty of cafes … You just name it, from Ultimo, Favela, Bistrot, and others. If you walked a bit further, you will find Junction, Sisterfields, and others more … Many café to try, depends on your time and budget.…
I really recommend this villa if you are looking for a place to stay in a very strategic location in Oberoi Road at Seminyak area. This villa is really suitable if you came here with your friends, couple, or family. If you are having your honeymoon trip, The Club Villas has the One-Bedroom Honeymoon Private Pool Villa. If you came with your family, The Club Villas has the Three-Bedroom Private Pool Villa. 😉
