“Amazing Experience in a Gorgeous Private Villa!”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

What a beautiful place to stay! We had a fabulous time here on our 13th anniversary. When we showed up, the room was decorated with flowers on the floor & rose petals in the bathtub. The candles were lit up around the pool. We had a one bedroom villa. This was perfect for the two of us, but we discussed how if our two kids were with us, they would have loved it too & swam in the private pool all day.

There was a great selection to choose from for breakfast. They cooked some things in the main kitchen and made eggs/toast right on the spot. We ordered room service one night and it was not only inexpensive, but it was delicious.

The staff always notified us when they arrived at the villa & when they were leaving. I never felt unsafe in the villa & never noticed any mosquitoes which are pretty prevalent in Bali. The front staff was always really helpful when we asked questions on where to go, where to eat, where to shop, etc. I do wish they would have had more of a "menu" of things to do around Bali, but it was still not difficult to decide. You could either take the car to Kuta or Seminyak for free or hire them for the day for a minimal amount. We did both & had great experiences.

We had a massage in our villa, which I would definitely recommend doing.

Prior to our trip, the hotel manager and staff was extremely quick to respond to any questions I had beforehand as well. The room was cleaned before we would return from going out.

Amazing overall experience! We would definitely stay here again (with or without the kids)!!!

I stayed in a two bedroom villa with two friends and found it to be the epitome of luxury and personal service. Our villa was quiet, private and even had little areas with mini hindu temples. Our villa pool was lovely and having your own private pool sprinkled with flower petals is an experience worth having again!

The service was impeccable and every morning and afternoon the staff came to our villa to cook breakfast and afternoon tea (Indonesian style).

The spa was great and I got a two hour, four hands massage and found it to be incredibly relaxing.

The location is great and the staff will drive you anywhere you'd like from the villa. We went to Ku De Ta and the beach a few times and loved it.

The value that you receive at Ulin Villas is great and I would highly recommend it to friends.

On a business onsite evaluation trip, We stayed there for 5 days and four nights in a one bedroom villa. Overall I would give a thumb up for its impeccable service.

The staffs are professional and helpful during our short stay and breakfast was prepared in villa every morning and though there are only of persons, they willingly prepared a fourth set of breakfast without charging nor questioning. The rooms are well kept and clean.

Mr Winawan has been very kind and special thanks to him for helping to make the necessary arrangement.

The only downside - the constant dropping of the internet but as soon as we have brought up the issue, Mr Winawan has got the problems solved. I would like to bring my family back there again if time permit and hope to meet up with Mr Winawan.

The spa treatment - Fantastic too ! As an occupants, we are entitled to 25% discount which made it worthwhile ! Anyone who stay in the villa should try out ! A pity that they have not put much attention to its spa in the sense that more business would be done if they have put a bigger and more eye catching information card/ brochures inside the villa. I am sure more will go to the SPA because there is no much emphasis and advertisments to promote the spa there. Maybe , try printing using bigger and attractive brochures in the villa....

Anyone like to be pampered, go to Ulin - they are good ! We will be back !

Stayed here just after Xmas with my wife and two teenaged children. There were two seperate villas and I didnt feel comfortable with the security in the property. The gate was not secure and the laneway was easilly accessable to the outside. Also the complimentary breakfast was not good at all and most of the time we left it and towards the end of our five day stay we declined breakfast. We ordered room service a couple of times but it appeared to be cooked offsite and was cold. My wife and daughter used the Spa and said there were cockroaches on the floor however the massage was good.

Dear “AnthonyPerth”

Thank you very much for taking your valued time to share your review of your visit last year in 2012. We regret to hear that some part of our services were not meeting your individual expectation. We encourage and appreciate all guests to share their review in immediate time so that we can address the every concern immediately. THE ULIN VILLAS AND SPA come with 24 hour security service and have just received “gold certificate” from Bali Police Department for the quality of security policy, software, hardware and the continuously trained security guards. Guest security is our prime attention. However our policy is to present a polite non intrusive proactive security approach. We highly appreciate your feedback on the food service where we will immediately discuss with related department as it is not the norm. Bali is a tropical Island and as a normal practice in Bali, the hotel carries a variety of methods to prevent discomfort of guests from insects. This includes bi-weekly fogging of garden areas and exterior of hotel, insect coils use in dining area, bathroom and terrace. We also do turn down service in the evening to refresh all occupied villas. Our methods generally work. We highly value your feedback and will liaise with various departments in the hotel to address the points you raised and I am committed to ensuring we resolve each point you have made. We very much look forward to welcoming you on your future Bali vacation.

We are staying at the Ulin Resort at the moment with two 17 year olds.What a wonderful resort with serenity and peace from us when we need it and shopping and fun just up the road when that is what's needed to keep the teenagers happy. Breakfast is cooked in the villa every morning and afternoon tea is served from 2pm till 6pm. Not a cheap resort but well worth the extra money.

As Airline crew who travel the world and stay in many fine hotels we were recommended to stay at the Ulin Villas. Our recent stay was nothing but amazing.
The friendly staff and location of the Villas was perfect. The choice of daily breakfast and the quality of the food was superb. Nothing was to much trouble and the staff were a delight. The attention to detail and the cleanliness and upkeep of the villas and property was of a very high standard.
We look forward to returning to the Ulin Villas next year and will recommend to all our friends and family ..Thankyou to all the beautiful staff who made my birthday and our holiday so memorable.

Wow what is they to say... The one bedroom villa was amazing. Staff give 100%. Food 5 star quality. From waking up to eating a freshly cooked breakfast of your choice, inside your private domain, is an experience. Then jumping into your own swimming pool is wonderful. The spa treatments are out of this world. Again this is done in your villa. The staff will go above & beyond any request you ask them. Flowers & candles round the pool in the evening is a scene to see. Will go back one day & experience this again with my children.
