More of a boutique hotel, this 5 bedroom villa offers B&B style accommodation about 5 mins walk to the hustle and bustle of Seminyak's main strip. The room is small, but considered 'deluxe' as the French door lead directly to the small pool. The bathroom is adequate but there are no amenities except for shampoo, rinse, and shower gel. The...

We had a very comfortable stay in this gentlemen's guesthouse recently. The pick up from the airport was punctual and effortless and within an hour of arrival we were whisked off to Seminyak, about a twenty minutes to half an hour drive. The villa turned out to be off the main road and down a narrow laneway, hence very quiet,... More

A very welcoming little guest house in a very quiet cul-de-sac is the best description of Phil's. After carefully negotiating your way across the carp pond, you arrive in the lounge and reception area, where the pool is also situated. The rooms are very comfortable, with air-con that actually obeys your wishes as opposed to other places I have stayed.... More

I stayed at phils place in May 2016 for 2 nights and 3 days. The villa is located in a quiet side street only about 10-15 min walk from the beach and the "gay st" in Seminyak. There's also massages and spa parlours around the corner and some nice restaurant close by easily reachable by foot. I landed in Bali... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in Oct 2015. Phil's Place is a nice, quiet oasis away from all the crazy that Bali can be. It is located in a back area well away from any heavy traffic, therefore, a peaceful nights sleep can almost be guarenteed. The staff here are very attentive, and will look after you well.
