The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
The Layar is great for families. Each villa's lawns and pool area provide ample space for play – there’s even a special shallow section for paddlers (safety fences are available for hire). In fact, you don’t need to worry about packing any of the usual cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay: just let us know what you need and anything we don’t have in-house we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items). Babysitters can also be organised for a small extra charge should mums and dads want to explore dining options beyond the villa grounds.
Although the kitchen is equipped with all you need to prepare simple meals for fussy eaters or babies, there’s also a special menu to suit children’s taste buds with firm favourites like spaghetti bolognaise, mini burgers, chicken fingers and ice cream.
When the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page; there’s plenty in the area to keep kids of all ages amused throughout the holiday.
Nestled in a lush green garden adorned with exotic plants - a true paradise retreat. Upon entering our villa, we were immediately impressed by the outdoor living concept. The villa seamlessly integrated indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing to enjoy beautiful green gardens with exotic plants and private outdoor pool while still having all the comforts of a well-furnished "home". The bedding was truly exceptional. The mattresses were heavenly, the sheets of the highest quality and the pillows true highlight. It was like sleeping on a fluffy cloud. While the bedrooms offer indoor comfort, the outdoor bathroom with a hot tub allowing to connect with nature in the most indulgent way. A truly remarkable experience. An other one feature that truly captured our attention and added an extra touch of enchantment was the mesmerizing fish pond. It added a touch of magic and elegance to the villa. The fully equipped kitchen was a pleasant surprise, and we appreciated the option to have a chef come

Great stay - location was a little further out than we were expecting however the buggy down to Seminyak Square was a great way to travel. Villas were super quiet - with only staff coming in to clean or deliver food. Breakfasts were absolutely fabulous.

Absolutely stunning villa. Felt like a newly developed villa complex. Lots of privacy and short stroll to the main Seminyak shops. Also was very impressed with the buggy service into town.

We enjoyed a relaxing and tranquil stay in the 4 bedroom villa. Beautifully appointed with stylish indoor and outdoor living areas - the Villa was well equipped and afforded our family fun times to enjoy around the private pool. The location is ideal and central to some terrific restaurants and bars and boutique shops. We would definitely recommend the Layar to our friends and family.

It's a gorgeous villa in great location of Seminyak eventhough it's not on the beachfront. The design is so unique. We had a wonderful stay here.

Beautiful experience. Everyone was so friendly. The villas were private and well maintained. The in house spa and BBQ was excellent and the buggy into town was so convenient. It was great having both air conditioned as well as indoor/outdoor spaces.

WOW We booked a 3 and 4 bedroom villa, staying with 14 family and friends, the villas met all expectations and then some, villas were beautifully presented, cleaned everyday, the pool was stunning and thankfully refreshing, and the staff at the Layar were great, location was perfect, you are far away from the madness out on the street, but only a short walk to all the bars and restaurants, would certainly recommend the Layar to anyone.

I felt like I was in heaven from the minute I stepped into Villa 5 (4 Bed Villa) at The Layer. My husband & I were in the Master Bedroom, that is seperate to the Main Villa, which meant we had our own little private hideaway.Apart from the 3 bedrooms & ensuites in the Main Villa, there was a magnificent TV room, with wrap around lounge. The kitchen was well equiped, the dining table very comfortably accommodated our large family. Also has it's own massage room with shower & toilet, that was handy for when we were out by the pool. Most of our entertaining was out by the Pool & Spa.The Garden/ Pool area set in a lush garden setting, can only be described as Paradise. The staff were absolutely amazing, if ever we needed anything, they were at the Villa within seconds to accomodate our request.They serviced the Villa, Pool & Gardens daily & all staff were always happy & friendly. The breakfast provided was amazing with the staff coming in at the requested time & setting everything up & then coming back to clear away. Also would like to mention we utilised room service for lunch & sometimes afternoon snacks, prices were very reasonable & again meals magnificent. I thoroughly recommend staying at The Layar especially at Villa 5.A very memorable experience.

Given the relatively higher price of these villas, we had very high expectations of the accommodations, amenities and staff. Pleasingly, these expectations were not only met, but significantly exceeded. I am not prone to exaggeration either!! Outstanding villas, with truly helpful staff. There are a multitude of villas in Bali and it is often difficult to discern which offers the best value. We have stayed at some others, and researched many more. Let me save you the time and risk. Layar Villas are the only way to go (on the proviso you are pitching in that upper price range) Kris

Me and bunch of friends went there for a short break and The Layar has it all. The rooms are perfect and let me not start with the bathroom. It was so spacious that you can dance around and have your bath with peace. The swimming pool itself is also a big temptation for everyone to jump in right after check in. We couldn't handle the aqua color pool. As for the butler service is very helpful since we were travelling with little kid,so there are some menu that needs to be adjusted to suit little kid taste bud. I can't say anymore but perfection.
