“Unmatched Service In Private Paradise”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I am not very much a Review person, but Just to add to the already awesome running trend of reviews for Ulin, I would like to confirm from the most recent trip there from 7th Sept to 10th Sept , the positive reviews here are every bit True!
The service level offered at the Ulin villas are simply unmatched. even for the various other bigger name villas out there. Every staff on site greets you with a warm and sincere smile from the reception down to the gardener watering the plants by the walkway. They don't just ignore you and go about doing their own stuff. The villa itself is located very conveniently in the middle of streets of pubs and restaurants with cheap and great food. surprisingly given its location the villas itself was surprisingly quiet.. never heard any other guests or honk of a vehicle throughout the whole stay. Interior was well maintained and clean! not a single fallen leaf in the outdoor pool! not sure how they even managed that, there were exquisite looking little "pots" all round the villas which they burn mosquito coils in there everyday , seems to work well keeping the mosquitoes away.. and the outdoor sunken bathtub , shower and toilet.. its just awesome! its a big tub ... fits 2 person nicely~! And one thing i realized, even if it sounds a little crude.. sitting there on the outdoor toilet taking a little poop during sunrise.. enjoying the breeze, hearing the birds , the rattling of leaves and the warm colors of sunrise, I've got to say, that has got to be the best Poop experience I had in my 28 years of life!
One thing that I didnt agree with the review was the quality of the food, i remember reading reviews saying that the food was plain ? No way!! at least not when I was there.. I am really picky when it comes to food, and I have to say the Breakfast was Awesome! It beats any 5 star hotel's buffet breakfast anytime although the portion seems a little out of this world, there is no way anyone could finish the big bowl of fruit in yogurt and cereal , fruit juice, and main course even for a big eater like me. As for their Dinner.. They did candle light dinner LIKE A BOSS! candlelight dinner with 2 candles on the table? hell no.. they had their signature 100 candle, candle light dinner which lighted up the whole villa with candles, and the selection of food on the menu was top class! The tenderloin we had was so good. it puts some dedicated steakhouse's steak to shame. wasn't expecting that from a holiday villa thou.. but one "negative" feedback, the presentation looks really great with starter and dessert stacked up high like a tower.. but its a pain to try eat it! we lost a prawn coz the tower toppled over. but they taste awesome none the less. And this is the part where their service truly shines, we went out for the day and was back pretty late.. so dinner was up till 10 pm.. after dessert. the whole team of 5~6 staffs actually came knocking on the door, with a huge Black Forest birthday cake singing birthday song for my Girlfriend, and that is definitely not some cheap "complementary" cake that some hotels offers.
One last thing was when my Girlfriend had an upset tummy prolly from some random staff we ate outside, the reception arranged a vehicle to drive me to the pharmacy to get meds and back right on the spot. and since our flight was at 730pm. they offered a late checkout till 4.30pm where a vehicle was arranged to send us to the airport with no extra charge. all while still providing full service even thou we were technically "checked out" after 12pm.
To sum it up, I would definitely recommend Ulin to couples or family travelling to Bali hoping to stay within walking distance to streets of awesome food and drinks. beach issnt far away either. For the prices they charge, It just cant get any better than this!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 4, its reasonably far away from the reception but not too far you will hate to wal...

you wont believe that a right turn from the main st by seminyak square can get you here, perfect location, and surprisingly inside the villa u hear none of the outside noise, great shopping and restaurants beside the location. loved that each morning breakfast is cooked in villa and massage could be done in villa, to our dissapointment the massage was average, we tried aromatherapy my wife and i, other than that, staff is very friendly and helpful. we appreciate the privacy given and pool is just beautiful.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July with our 7 year old daughter, and it was the most relaxing, peaceful holiday that I have had in a long while!

All the staff are so friendly and very helpful. From the time we were picked up from the airport, our holiday began! The location is ideal, just a short walk off the bustling street, yet so peaceful and quiet! The villas are well planned, and very comfortable. The pool was so inviting, my daughter spent almost all her time in there! It was lovely to have breakfast served in the villa itself, which made for a great start to the day!

My husband really enjoyed the massage in the villa. There are 2 massage tables by the pool, and you can arrange for the massage ladies to come and knead any lingering stresses out of your system!The turn down service in the evening is wonderful...everything is done so quickly and quietly, that everything is done almost as if by magic!

We loved every minute of our stay here, and I highly recommend it!

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.

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.
