Reviewed 8 November 2013

My jaw dropped the moment I stepped through the front gate. My husband and I had the most perfect stay here. Attention to detail was second to none. The East meets West BBQ was the highlight and our villa was transformed into a Balinese paradise. Close to all that Seminyak offers.

We had the most fabulous time here at the Dusun Villas. The villas are set off the main st so there is no noise, you just feel like you're in your own paradise. The staff were so helpful, nothing was too much to ask. They made reservations for dinner for us, dropped us off when needed and even took us to the dr and waited in the waiting room. So friendly! The breakfast is great we had eggs most mornings. There is no bar or restaurant but plenty nearby (THOROUGHLY recommend Motel Mexicola just to the right - it rivals good places in Melbourne, reservations only).
Our pool was kept clean and housekeeping was great. We felt so spoilt staying here and hope to be back. It's amazing and wort every cent! This was my first time to Bali so i have nothing to compare it to, but the level of professionalism, cleanliness and hospitality exceeded my expectations.

My new wife and I spent our honeymoon in Bali. We read lots of reviews and chose the Dusun... and it lived up to every review and every expectation we had for our ideal honeymoon. The villa is absolutely stunning and every member of the staff were so friendly and helpful. The BBQ is A MUST DO, they really go all out to make you feel special. We will definitely be returning!!!!!!

Having stayed in several villas in the Semnyak area I can say that we will be returning to the Dusun.

The level of service is excellent, but unobtrusive. Friendly greetings and conversations with the staff were welcomed.

We spent a lot of time I the villa, enjoying the pool, the peace and sometimes music . We ordered lunch from Grocer and Grind a couple of times from the room service menus. The staff will go and pick it up for you and then plate it up and you to eat at your dining table. I think 25% premium is charged, but worth it if you don't feel like going out.

The 3 bedroom villas looked roomy and the pool is spectacular, that's where we'll stay next time when we bring the family with us!

I can only recommend these villas. I was with my family and we have a wonderful time in this little paradise on earth. You can really swim in the pool and it is not just a small pond as we know it from other villas. I have contacted the hotel directly to questions what is the best deal that they can offer me. The offer was very competitive compared to other villas in Seminyak. The conditions are perfect, we felt just like at home. There is also a driver to get you in and around Kuta driving around for free. This is also necessary because it is easy to walk through "Eat Street" but if you want to do some shopping you must drive longer distances. The KuDeTa e.g. is only 10 minutes of walking away. This is an excellent establishment with a very good price.

Having purchased cheap fares to Bali and knowing very little about the place, we chose the Dusun based on our travel agent's recommendation. To say that we loved it was an under statement! Because we travelled outside of peak season we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a three-bedroom villa, so we loved the spaciousness and the huge pool to ourselves.

The Dusun is very private and like many in Seminyak, is high-walled and has security guards to presumably prevent anyone from walking in. Because of the high walls, the property is extremely quiet and private; it's really an idyllic oasis. The 3 bedroom villas have plenty of space both around the pool and in the communal building, so a party of six would have plenty of room. It essentially is fully self-contained (apart from a laundry) so you could easily cook all your own meals. Although that's not really necessary given Bali prices. We loved having breakfast cooked daily by the staff and they returned later in the afternoon with a small snack for afternoon tea.

The staff are all extremely friendly and I believe that's genuine, because that's what we encountered from all the Balinese people. Nothing felt forced.

I'm not sure of the official rating of the hotel but I'd say its a good 4+ stars. There are some cracks here and there and some painting touch ups are needed in places, but that's really being picky.

The Dusun is very close to the well known Bodyworks where you can have all sorts of massages, facials and other treatments. They are a fabulous treat! Many other places offer massages too, but sometimes the cheaper price gives you some indication of the quality of the treatment.

The property is also within walking distance of Seminyak Square, other shopping areas and eateries. The beach is approximately 200 metres away, but the area isn't known for its beaches and one quick walk was enough for us.

Given half a chance I'd leap at the opportunity to visit The Dusun again and hopefully with a group of friends.
