Onto our next review during our stay in Bali at the lovely Dusun villas in Seminyak.
Arriving into the Dusun Villas was like walking into paradise: with beautiful trees overhanging the walk way up to the villas, it was so beautiful and serene. The location is PERFECT, in the heart of Seminyak, on the same road as the well-known Mexicola, but tucked away so no noise! The Villa was just beautiful. We walked in through a large wooden door and walked up the path next to the gorgeous pool. The villa itself looked like a large hut, which had a lovely kitchen/lounge area outside but under cover, and the bedroom and bathroom inside.
The bedroom had a beautiful king-sized bed and was decorated with fresh flowers. The bathroom had one of the biggest walk-in showers I’ve ever seen, with his and her sinks. There was also a storage area for our cases and a safe for us to keep our valuables in. We had a full body massage on our first evening inside the comfort of our villa, which was SO relaxing!
Food & Drink
Every day the staff came to prepare our breakfast and afternoon tea which was a lovely touch, and so nice to have a late afternoon treat! Breakfast had a wide array of choice and was always freshly made for us with coffee. I loved being able to sit at our dining table overlooking the pool in the privacy of our own villa – so quiet and relaxing! Afternoon tea was amazing, it was different each day too which made a nice change. During our stay we had macaroons, éclairs and scones, which were all served with tea and coffee.
The food/room service menu was extensive which was great for us foodies, and the staff were super attentive and kind. We ordered twice from two local restaurants and the food was delicious. The staff came to prepare this for us, which made our meal extra special. We also made use of the mini bar that had soft drinks, beer, wine and chocolate – which I definitely made use of! I also noticed you could arrange a meal, BBQ or other requested lunch/dinner cooked specially for you in your villa by the chef! We didn’t get a chance to do this, but will definitely make use of this next time!
Other things I loved…
All the villas within the complex were all beautifully decorated, which made you feel like you were miles away from a busy Seminyak. We made use of the Dusun bikes and went on a lovely bike ride early morning, which was such a fun way to get some exercise before it got too hot! In the evening, we took advantage of the hotel car to go out for dinner (free of charge within a certain range) – such a great service and one less thing to worry about.
I think the staff really made our stay here. They were so welcoming and kind, I just relaxed the whole time. They remembered our names and would always be so polite and helpful when we had questions. It was also nice to have some places to eat/drink recommended so we had an idea of where to go!
This is such a luxurious and lovely place to stay, I highly recommend anyone to stay in one of these villas, perfect for all!
