“Sublime villa, seamless service, well trained staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We have just spent four very relaxing days in a three-bedroomed villa at Ulin and would highly recommend this little gem.

Clearing Denpasar airport took a painful two-hours - a long snaking queue for the Visa on arrival, then again for Passport control - so we were thrilled to be met and welcomed by Sudi as soon as we exited customs. Traffic was fairly heavy so the 20 minute drive from Denpasar airport to Ulin took an hour. Three hours after landing in Bali we were finally at Ulin!

We were warmly welcomed by Yus at reception and promptly taken to our villa. As we walked down the tree-lined corridor that leads to the villas we felt the stress of the airport experience melt away, the grounds are impecably well tended. On entering the villa our children let out squeals of delight - it was everything we hoped for and more - luxurious, impeccably presented and spotless, with a lovely pool. We sat down to a welcome drink and cool towels whilst Yus described the facilities and then gave us a tour of the rooms. All rooms were beautifully presented with marvellous bathrooms and individual gardens.

Breakfasts were cooked in our villa each morning, at our preferred time, by the friendly and courteous chefs.There was a good selection of breakfast options to choose from.

Location-wise, Ulin is just off the main street of Seminyak which is lined with shops, restaurants and bars. The walk to the beach took us 20 minutes but only 5 minutes if you opt for the hotel driver to drop you off. For trips further afield the hotel can arrange a car and driver at a very reasonable price. We hired a very pleasent and safe driver called Nikko.

The attention to detail sets Ulin apart - friendly satff, lightly scented linen, water dispenser in the dining area, complimentary soft drinks, Aloe Vera gel in the bathrooms, nightly fumigation, candle lighting around the pool, I could go on. All of these little gestures added up to make for a very pleasurable and memorable stay. We would highly recommend staying at Ulin and would definitely stay there again.

"Thank you" to all the staff at Ulin who made our stay such a success!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights, and we were totally enjoyed our stay from start to the end! We felt like our money was worth it and we would love to go back again! The villa is close to some shopping district but it is completely quiet in the villas. The staff were truly exceptionally. Villa was just amazing in every way. Thank you for giving us such an unforgettable experience!

We have just spent 5 days at the Ulin Villas. We were lucky enough to stay in a renovated 3 bedroom villa (no. 14) and it was just beautiful. The new bathrooms are spacious and luxurious. The new open plan kitchen, dining, lounge now has the option of being fully closed with bifold doors (and air conditioning) or open air which is brilliant. As always, the location is perfect and just a few steps to eat street and everything on offer there. However, the best part of our stay was the staff who were ever helpful in providing fantastic service at all times. Nothing was too much trouble and the free drop off service was much appreciated.

Room Tip: All villas looked to be of very high quality.

You just can't go past these amazing villas for your next trip to Bali. Fabulous location right in Seminyak but quiet as it's set down a side street. The staff were truely exceptional and nothing was too much trouble.
Pros: Breakfast cooked daily in the villa
Car service to and from Airport and as far as Kuta and surrounding areas
Large private pool
Welcome foot massage on arrival
Delightful garden and setting which is candle lit nightly and continous mosquito coils to deter the insects
Fantastic staff
Brilliant location
Large very comfortable bedroom, livingroom, change area and a spectacular outdoor bathroom
Outdoor kitchen with fridge, oven and cooktop if you feel inclined
100 Candle Dinner which for our special celebration was divine. More food than we could eat and our villa garden decorated beautifully with even more candles than usual.
If you are after a beautiful villa where your privacy is respected, you are treated beautifully then this is for you. Although at times it would have been nice to sit around a busy bar and meet fellow travellers ( not that my husband and I grew tired of each others company of course!), the complex only has a tiny cafe which was generally empty. For that type of scene you only need to venture 100 metres and you're in the heart of Seminyak where there are a multitude of bars and restaurants to chose from.

Room Tip: We were in Villa 8 right down the back but I think any of them are just as quiet

The Ulin Villas are absolutely deserving of their outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor; and they work very hard to maintain their excellent standard of service.

PROS -
* Beautifully appointed and spacious villas, decorated in the traditional Balinese style. Very private!
* Large private pool which gets a good amount of sunlight during the day
* Beautifully maintained gardens in each villa - with an area of lawn for children to play.
* 1BR villas have a separate living space, separated by a door from the main bedroom. We used this for our 2 young children; Ulin Villas kindly set up cots for both our daughters (even our 3yo fit in a cot, as it was very large, and she loved it!). This is a huge plus as the area is still air conditioned but separated from our bedroom, without being in a separate building like the 2BR villas.
* Very child-friendly. The staff went out of their way to assist in every way possible to ensure a comfortable stay for our 1yo and 3yo. They provided a pool fence, microwave to sterilise bottles, cots, all at no extra cost. Nothing was too much trouble!
* BRILLIANT location, just off Eat Street. Lots of fabulous restaurants and clothing / homeware stores just around the corner. Yet Ulin Villas is set back from the main street so once inside it is a haven of peace. Walking distance or short inexpensive taxi ride from the main beach clubs like Potato Head and KuDeTa (be sure to take the blue taxis and insist on the driver using the meter!).
* Complimentary shuttle service to all the local restaurants and shops
* Very friendly staff and excellent level of service
* In-villa BBQ is a real treat
* Staff went out of their way to ensure our daughter had a very special 1st birthday - on the afternoon a large group of staff all came to our villa with a cake to sing Happy Birthday to her!

Thanks to all the staff at Ulin Villas for making our time so relaxing. We will most definitely be back, hopefully in the not too distant future :)

Room Tip: Villa 5 was positioned half way along the driveway and we found it perfect! 1BR villa layout worked...

The Ulin Villas are a luxurious and romantic place to stay, and the best part is that while they are sleekly fashionable, they still feel Balinese. The one bedroom we stayed in was furnished in international style but it's outdoor bathroom and shower and iconic Bales made it feel classically Indonesian. We were impressed with every detail. The pool is elegant, absolutely private ( good for romance) and large enough to exercise in. A lovely touch is having your breakfast cooked for you in your outdoor room adjacent to the pool. The breakfast was first rate- and it felt like having your own house ( we should all be so lucky). Other nice touches are an included foot rub (not sure that is offered to everyone) and a welcome drink ( that is offered at most Bali hotels). While the price of the Ulin Villas is considerable- about 425 for the one bedroom model, we felt it was comparable to Villas that cost twice as much. Lots of little extras, like a delicious afternoon tea delivered to your room make you feel extremely well taken care off. One note: some of the villas are being redecorated and the outdoor bathrooms will become indoor with windows that let the fresh air in. The new color scheme is even more elegant than the old one, Unless you are looking for something more truly traditional, its hard to think you can do better than the Ulin Villas, One final note though: this is in the thick of Seminyak about a ten minute walk to the beach. Seminyak is, to say the least,, intense. The beach (Kuta) is wide and the waves are great for surfing, but you can get various beach salespeople bugging you there... If you are looking for a quiet , isolated neighborhood, this isn't it. While it is an oasis of calm inside your beautiful villa, the outside is jumping.
Finally, we ate at a terrific restaurant, on the recommendation of the extremely well prepared and sweet staff.-- I definitely would go back to Metis if I could. Gorgeous, glam place but looks didn't sacrifice taste- the desert soufflés, especially the chocolate and Grand Marnier were just amazing. Perfect.

Room Tip: If you want the newly decorated rooms they should be done by next April- but honestly I think the ro...

This is a small luxury boutique hotel just next to happening 'Seminiyak' street. Once you enter your villa you will forget the busy street & the villa will mesmerize you. Lavish private pool, open kitchen,separate spa area, open bathroom & beautiful four poster bed, TV lounge, etc....make it an exotic place to be.

I found ULIN Villas value for money in terms of location & luxury in heart of Seminiyak. If you like stay slightly further away from the main happening place, you would be able to find other nice smaller boutique hotels in slightly cheaper tariffs with similar luxuries. One could explore & choose. If you are happy to get the best luxury at a convenience location...this is a good place.

We had breakfast every morning which was a delight. Maria our cook use to come & cook fresh omelets or anything you like from the menu. Very delicious & very well presented.
Reception staff could be more courteous & welcoming. Which I though needs improvement. Besides this no flaws at all.

Kids friendly hotel & overall an excellent experience....
