If you are looking to stay somewhere luxurious, yet affordable while in Bali, then Cicada Luxury Townhouses is the place to be! Opulent, elegant and overly spacious, these townhouses, located in trendy Seminyak, are the epitome of style and luxury living.
From the moment we arrived we were taken care of and made to feel right at home by the friendly staff. After a refreshing welcome drink we were led through an oasis of beautiful gardens and past the stunning 25 metre lap pool to the secure gates of our private 3 bedroom townhouse. And we thought the gardens and pool we had just seen were impressive……. The kids squealed with excitement as we stood in awe looking at our own private pool and lush garden.
We were shown around our villa by a lovely staff member, Meisya, and I will tell you it took quite a while – the place was huge! 3 large bedrooms (two upstairs, one downstairs), all with king sized beds and each with their own private outdoor bathroom, as well as a huge lounge room, a dining room with enough seating for 10, a contemporary, fully equipped kitchen and an additional bathroom. Each room was appointed with quality fittings and furnishings and tastefully decorated with unique pieces of art. To say we were impressed would be an understatement!
It was straight in to the pool for the kids and so great for us to be able to sit back and relax and watch them playing knowing they weren’t annoying or getting in the way of anyone else. After a mammoth swimming session the kids all spread out on the comfy couches in the lounge room and watched children’s shows on the big screen TV.
While Seminyak has a cacophony of amazing places to eat out, when you are staying somewhere so comfortable and luxurious you may not want to leave at all, even if just for a quick bite to eat. Well, that’s not a problem at Cicada Luxury Townhouses! If you do choose to pass on their free shuttle service, they offer room service with a wide variety of tasty, fresh and very well priced meals including traditional Indonesian cuisine as well as a range of ‘western food’ and kids meals. In fact, after ordering some afternoon tea for the kids, we were so impressed by the quality of food and the impeccable service that we ordered dinner in as well. Each time our food was delivered by two members of staff who set our table elegantly and returned soon after to clear our dishes and clean up after our messy kids.
Once our kids were settled in to their superbly comfortable beds, we enjoyed a lovely bubble bath in the warm, fresh open air. We then slipped into our fluffy bathrobes, enjoyed a DeLonghi coffee using the machine provided and spent some time catching up on some work. We could have opted for one of the many in-house spa treatments but honestly, we were already so relaxed we simply didn’t feel the need.
The following morning we were treated to a fantastic a la carte breakfast of fresh fruit, bakery items and our choice of Indonesian or American cooked breakfast, once again delivered to our table with impeccable service.
With checkout not until 12pm, we once again made use of our private pool followed by bubble baths, soaking up every last minute of luxury that we possibly could. And when it did come time to check out, not a minute before 12pm, we were farewelled with as much warmth and hospitality as when we arrived!
From the 1 bedroom townhouse: a perfect romantic retreat, to the 2 and 3 bedroom townhouses, Cicada Luxury Townhouses are well and truly a cut above the rest when it comes to luxury accommodation in Bali. We have stayed in many similarly priced places but rarely have they been up to this level of quality, service and luxury.
Do yourself a favour next time you are in Bali and treat yourself to a lot of luxury at a very reasonable price. You will not regret it!
