Reviewed 1 September 2013

I recently stayed with three friends at the Dusun. The service was excellent, staff extremely helpful and friendly. When we shopped till we dropped, it was so relaxing to be able to return to our private villa for a swim, etc without any interaction with other people. Great time out! I give it 11/10. Thanks to all at the Dusun who made our holiday memorable and very pleasant. Keep up the great work!! Sandi Edwards

We really enjoyed our stay here. The service was excellent and it felt like a private villa holiday as opposed to being in a hotel. We are a family of four so we had a two bedroom villa which was perfect. If we had two more people with us, we could have taken the 3 bedroom villas which are more spacious with a decent size pool. The hotel provides breakfast, but a few more options would have been nice. If we had asked, they probably would have arranged any reasonable breakfast requests beyond their menu. The order in service for food had a good choice, very fast delivery, and the hotel staff lay the table and serve the meal. There is a good spa nearby which provides services in the villa at the same rates as in the spa. Both the dining and spa options were high quality with rates much lower than a 5 star hotel. Top beach clubs are walking distance as is the main dining area in Seminyak. The hotel also provides a free drop-off and pick-up service in the area.

We recently stayed for 8 days in the three bedroom villa at the Dusun.
The staff catered for all 6 adults and 2 children beyond our expectations. Every member of staff we met was friendly and helpful.
The villa itself is styled to look like a traditional Balinese villa with all of the mod-cons of a resort, including staff on call 24-7, room service and a driver that will take you anywhere in Bali free of charge. The standards are very high here, we would highly recommend The Dusun Villas for anyone planning a trip, wanting somewhere quiet yet so close to shops, restaurants and the beach.
Thank you so much to all the staff that made our stay so amazing.

We had a 10 night stay at the Dusun, and I am sure this is a family holiday we will all remember. Family of 4 - my wife and myself plus two late-teenager children. Really nothing to fault and so much to praise. Walking through the front door you are greeted by a villa set up that if anything looks better than the promotional photos/videos on the website. Immaculate grounds, superb spotless pool and a fantastic indoor/outdoor area with ample seating, a large dining table and great kitchen area. The rooms themselves were excellent and spacious, each bedroom with a large ensuite. However even the villa was overshadowed by the outstanding and friendly service - nothing was too much trouble for the Dusun staff.

Not cheap but you do get what you pay for :) Would recommend unreservedly, I really can't imagine anyone being disappointed by the Dusun.

Room Tip: We had a 3 room villa #6 which was perfect for ourselves and our two teenagers, as they were able to...

Our holiday here was PERFECT! A group of friends and I stayed here for a week and we had an amazing time. The service is fantastic, the staff are all friendly, would stop and have a chat with us, were happy to organise anything we needed, recommended great restaurants. They even surprised us with a birthday cake for one of the girls on her birthday! The rooms were beautiful, the pool incredible and breakfast each morning was so yum. We also had the traditional BBQ one night, the staff came decorated the villa, cooked sensational food and had a traditional band playing. The Manager would check in with us every few days to check that we were enjoying our stay and having the car drop us off at places was so helpful.
The location couldn't get any better. I came home and raved about it to all my friends.
We will hopefully be returning again this year!!

Our long awaited stay at the Dusun Villas was unfortunately a disappointment.... The main reason being that our neighbors decided to have an outdoor disco at their villa the moment we settled into our villa (4 pm). We made several calls to reception to ask them to handle the situation. The volume was tuned down for about 10 minutes, for it to go back to full. We got several calls from reception and from the manager to apologize, but nothing was really done. The manager offered us to move to another villa that evening, but as we had just finished the triathlon, we did not feel like packing up again. The next morning the disco started at 9 am! Once again, the management failed to handle the situation. Luckily for us, the couple left later that day, so on our last day we did have some peace and quiet.
We were very disappointed by the way the management handled the situation. This is not what you expect of such a high standard and expensive hotel!

We have just returned from 4 wonderful nights at the Dusun. From the moment you arrive you feel special and the villas are to die for. We are a family of 5 and the 3 bedroom villas were perfect. Large pool for the kids to go crazy in, fantastic undercover/outdoor day couches, kitchen and dining area and beautifully lit at night.

The driver service was fantastic, although you sometimes felt guilty using it to go to the restaurants as they were such as short walk away. Mexicola is right next door which is a trully authentic mexican restaurant, not "Tex Mex". The Grocer and Grind is 100 metres away and everything delicious.

We had one mishap when one of the boys split his chin and required stitches. The manager was there instantly and organised transport straight away to the Bali clinic and had the driver stay while our boy was gettign fixed up.

The bbq in your villa is a must with the candles and ornaments setup, music played by two musicians and full service, a great way to spend your last night.

We have travelled extensively through Asia and this was by far the best place we have stayed in.

It is not just the luxury of the villas but also the friendliness of everyone who works here.

Well done Dusun, hope to stay with you again soon!

Cheers
