Fantastic place, great service, good location in the middle of everything but still really quiet, breakfast cooked for you every morning, clean and large rooms. Looked at other places when booking this trip but very glad we chose the Ulin - Everything you could ask for and more.

This is excellent accommodation right in the middle of Seminyak but completely private and peaceful. The location is great, just a short walk to eat street where great food is easy to come by. The staff at Ulin always go above and beyond to make you feel almost like royalty!

A welcome start to our holidays.

We were very happy having you with us at THE ULIN VILLAS AND SPA. Our culture is to deliver a genuine un-prentend attentive service to all guests. I am pleased to know that all team members went above and beyond to make your holiday perfectly one to remember. Our villas is positioned at one of the best location in Seminyak, just steps away from the eat street where shops and restaurants are and of course just a short walk to the beach. We highly value your feedback to have the TV in the bedroom instead of only in the living area. Thank you very much for your review and we all look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Happy days,

Stayed for 7 nights in a one bedroom villa in March 2013.

Seminyak was the second part of our stay in Bali having already stayed a few nights in Ubud. I arranged a transfer with Ulin to collect us from our resort in Ubud which was an additional IDR350,000 (AUD $36). Their driver picked us up as agreed and was super friendly and had us at the Ulin in a little over an hour.

The resort is just off the main shopping/restaurant strip in Seminyak – perfectly close to all the action but far enough away to miss the noise. The villas are all very private, we barely ever saw or heard another guest. It really is the perfect place for solitude and relaxation. The room was a good size with a huge bed. The mattress was on the firm side, but just right for me. There’s a separate living room with TV and DVD stereo – they also have a fairly big list of latest DVDs for rent. The bathroom is a little interesting – it’s outside off the dressing room. When researching Ulin I imagined that it was just the bath and shower outside but it’s the toilet as well. I got used to it, I’m sure you will to. The room was always cleaned and presented perfectly and really my only complaint about the room was that you couldn’t watch TV in bed. But really that’s pretty insignificant.

The best part of the villa is definitely the pool . Practically full sized and such a treat to wake up and swim without having to share the pool with anyone. The pool is surrounded by candles at night when the turndown service is completed and it’s a stunning effect at night.

Breakfast is cooked and served in your room. There’s a comprehensive menu to chose from, both western and Indonesian. You can either book in a time by calling the night before and selecting what you want, or call in the morning and have one of their cooks come as soon as they are available. It definitely felt a little indulgent having someone come to the room and cook for you. I couldn’t fault one of the breakfast meals I had, all delicious.

I loved the stay at Ulin and I’d love to go back.

Just had 10 nights here. Staff all super friendly and helpful, but the star of the show is the incredible one bed villa. Walk through the Balinese gates, and it is WOW, Massive pool with a covered pergola at both ends. One has side by side massage beds, and the other is an outdoor kitchen with dining table and two sun lounges.
The main villa building is huge, and is split into 4 rooms. One is the tv lounge, the next is the bedroom,then the indoor bathroom with an outdoor shower and huge spa bath.
All fittings superb and new. Without doubt, fantastic value, and if you want to be on top of the restaurant area, this is the place, only 200metres or so from the main road, but no noise.
We have been coming to Bali for over 20 years, and this place is up there with the best.

Room Tip: All are far enough away from the cation so you get peaceful time

Dear “Richard C”

Thank you very much for taking your valued time to write your review. The One Bedroom Villa at THE ULIN VILLAS is one of the largest in Seminyak area where almost half of the land size is devoted for tropical garden and of course the private swimming pool. I am very happy to read how much you loved your villa, the super friendly service, helpful staff members and the perfect location. Thank you for highly recommending us the best place to stay for over 20 years as a frequent Bali holiday maker. We are excited and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

We stayed in August with our 4 year old son and 4 month old baby. The Villas staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is just half a block off of Eat Street. Would highly recommend taking advantage of their spa/massages and you can either order food from one of the restaurants or their food is very good. Afternoon tea / drinks is a nice addition and our son loved sitting next to the staff as they lit mosquito candles each night.

If there were some very (minor) points of feedback it would be that if you get an extra bed for a toddler they should have a mosquito net and the deck on Unit #4 needed to be refurbished as some of the small nails were exposed.

All in all my family would highly recommend this as an excellent place to stay...ah yes...they will also drop you off with one of the villa shuttles any time you need...nice plus

You'll enjoy it there..

Room Tip: Until deck is fixed...don't go for Unit 4

My daughter, husband and I have just come back after a wonderful holiday in Bali, four nights of which we stayed at the gorgeous Ulin Villas. We stayed in one-bedrrom villa that was spotless, comfortable and beautiful. Right from the moment we were picked up from the airport after a delayed flight in, we were glad that we decided to choose the Ulin Villas. The check-in was done in the villa and after a quick tour of the facilities we were left to enjoy the villa. The rooms are well laid out and the outdoor bathroom, shower and tub are a great touch. The pool is also very clean and of a good size. We were also very impressed with the evening turn down service where some great candles and lamps were lit around the pool and villa making it look even more gorgeous. The wifi worked pretty well, too.
It was an absolute joy for me to be greeted with a cake and a birthday song by the staff. The BBQ that comes as part of the package was also a welcome addition and pretty wholesome. Another great addtion was the free minibar that was stocked up every day.
The villa is located just off the main road in Seminyak, and is very quiet. Yet the best restaurants and shopping are just a short walk or drive away. The villa even provides drop-off facilities within the area.
If there is an area of improvement, I would like to suggest that the breakfast be looked into for taste. The breakfast is served in the villa, and there are quite a few options to choose from. Yet, at times we felt that some of the dishes lacked flavor. Also, for an island that produces great coffee, the brew served at breakfast could be much better. But these are only minor glitches as Ulin Villas and its staff go beyond their call of duty to make each and every guest comfortable. We would return in a heartbeat.

Stayed here for seven nights towards the end of July. Absolutely amazing. Fantastic private pool villas located right in the centre of Seminyak, but set back just off the street enough for it to be quiet. Excellent service and good food. Recommend very highly.
