About Tom & Rene
Our names are Rene and Tom, and although originally from Indonesia and the UK respectively we have lived all around the world as far afield as Azerbaijan and Malaysia. We still find it hard to believe that we could end up owning one amazing villa in Bali, let alone more, and so we often have to pinch ourselves. In any case we think they are all really special places and we hope that get as much enjoyment from our villas as we do.
Why Tom & Rene chose Banjar Semer
We love the easy comfort of Villa Rene. It immediately feels like home and the staff will help make guests feel special on their trip to Bali.

A wonderful holiday for Bali first timers.
The family, adult children and their partners, plus Mum, all loved Bali. Our trip was made extra special because of the villa, and most particularly the villa staff. The villa, the gardens and pool were great, secluded but well located for beaches and shopping. Most particularly we all agreed that Wayan, Putu and Mimi were beyond helpful and charming. Great cooks too!
An awesome villa...get ready to be spoilt.
We had an awesome experience at Villa Rene. Well located near the beach (a few minutes by foot), lots of local shops and restaurants (you must try Crab Bar, Watercress & Hog Wild). As for the accommodation itself you can be rest assured it has everything you need. First of all air conditioning...you will need that, a pool (now that's special), great areas to laze around, televisions in lounge and bedrooms, chilled water dispenser, a stocked refrigerator and the list goes on.....The best prize of all are your wonderful hosts Wayan & Putu. They will meet your every need whilst staying at the villa. Not only do you get a cooked breakfast each morning they will also cook lunch or dinner for you upon request. If you have any need from laundry, food requirements, child care, house keeping, tour info or even to be chauffeured and toured around Bali they will look after you. The Villa is ideal for one or two families. We would go back in a heartbeat...Thankyou Wayan & Putu for a memorable holiday.
Great stay at Villa Rene
My family and I (Mum, Dad, two grown up children + spouse + grandson) had a wonderful stay at Villa Rene over the New Year holiday. The villa is really homely and clean at the same time as having a luxurious feel to it - especially the outside area with the pool and bale.
Wayan, Putu and Mimi looked after us really well, pretty much not letting us lift a finger! It was so lovely to be brought coffee while lying on a sunbed! They were also really good with our 1 year old boy, helping to look after him, running around after him and generally pampering him!
We had friends staying in a nearby villa and had a party at the villa for New Year, not only did Wayan and the ladies prepare a feast for us, they didn't mind that we all jumped in the pool at midnight and carried on partying till 4am - they even brought out extra towels!
Felt very sad to leave Villa Rene at the end of our time as it had started to feel like home and we'd had such a lovely, relaxing time.
The only downside I would say is that you do need to get taxis everywhere, except perhaps for Belig Beach which is a 15 min walk, but not very nice - although we did like Mozaic beach club. I was nervous about taking our son in taxis without a car seat so we did spend a lot of time just chilling out in the villa - so it's a good thing we loved it!
Thanks so much for a generous and warm review of Villa Rene. We're very happy to know that you enjoyed the hospitality and attentiveness of the staff during your stay with us. The homely feel is one that we really try to promote and so it's great to hear that the family felt as ease and comfortable throughout.
There are a few seasonal changes on the beach when the tide does wash in vegetation from the sea but I hope it did not spoil the trip to the beach too much. Mozaic is a great beach bar and I hope you made it to La Laguna which is another super place on the beach within 10 minutes walk.
We wish you well and please do return.
This was our home away from home
Beautiful clean Villa with very friendly & helpful staff who were husband & wife Wyan & Putu. I liked how the pool was relatively shaded & comfortable with resident turtles & fish in the little pond. The pool fence around the house was a huge plus for me since I have an adventurous 2 yr old.
The Villa had air con & fans to keep us cool & the complimentary breakfast was so tasty. They even provided Watermellon for us as that was my sons fave fruit. We ordered dinner one night at the Villa & the food was to die for. All of us enjoyed everything we ordered. I would definately recommend this Villa & even stay here again.
Great family holiday villa
We had a really relaxing stay at Villa Rene, with 4 bedrooms it easily accommodated my brother + girlf on the ground level, me, my husband and 2 girls on 2nd floor and my parents in the master suite on the top level. This was a perfect layout to give everyone their own space. Wayan and Putu were lovely hosts, very obliging and kind, everything was always really clean and towels always appeared out of nowhere when we were swimming and relaxing around the pool. The breakfast every morning was varied and tasty and the fruit so fresh. The villa itself could probably use a bit of maintenance, loose floorboards, blocked showerheads, our ensuite toilet didn't flush well, a lick of paint here and there..... but this didn't detract too much from the rest of the amenities. Its well-located for restaurants and shops, (5 min walk) there were some great eateries (Watercress - fine dining presentation, Naughty Nuris - BBQ Ribs in a sociable setting, Mozaic beach club - high-end with a view of the beach) and some very reasonably-priced Warungs with classic Indonesian dishes mixed with European. There were also some nice boutiques (Body & Soul, Beka, Mr & Mrs Wardrobe) for a spot of dress shopping and I had a really relaxing body scrub & massage at Bening Spa. The main shopping street of Seminyak (around Seminyak Square) where our other relatives were staying was only a short cab ride away (approx 35,000rph). We did attempt to walk to 'town' along the beach one day, but turned back to the shady sanctuary of the Villa after 15 minutes! You really appreciate the bubble of tranquility that is Villa Rene after melting in the baking sun of the rest of Bali! And then you wisely call for a cab every time you want to go out (I recommend Bluebird group - just call 701111 from the villa phone). And you should venture out because there are lots of great things to explore in Bali - Waterbom, Elephant Safari Lodge, Monkey Santuary, Tanah Lot, and for a little bit of luxury closer to the Villa, theres the Canggu Club about 10mins away. My whole family loved this Bali holiday so I'm sure we'd all be happy to come back.
Lovely child friendly villa
We stayed here for a family reunion, it was a beautiful villa. Lovely staff and very child friendly. I highly recommend it!
Villa Rene is a few minutes walk from Batu Belig Beach. Ku-De-Ta, Mosaic, Potatohead and all the 'mega' bars and restaurants of Seminyak are just a few minutes away by taxi, or are a pleasant 20 minute walk along the Seminyak beach.
The New Canggu Club with its leisure and sports facilities are a few minutes drive away.
