Tranquil, colourful, comfortable, peaceful & friendly on immaculately kept grounds it could aptly be called Desa Seni 'a labour of love'. Nestled in the wonderful Canggu area which manages to retain its Boho Chic charm with a mixture of cool surf community and trend setters eg Deux Ex Machina. A variety of exquisite eateries have recently opened nearby Rucco/Milk &... More

I stayed at Desa Seni for a week on a dancing retreat, so stayed in a triple share room. The resort is gorgeous and the staff are lovely. My house was a two-storey Javanese wooden building, with a huge indoor/outdoor bathroom and a massive veranda. I loved it! What I shall miss the most is the food - it was... More

A little piece of paradise - idyllic gardens, lovely rooms, friendly staff, wonderful fresh food, great day spa, awesome yoga everyday, I LOVED this place. I'll definitely be back. I went on a yoga retreat but I could see myself there with my family as well.

One of the most special places I've ever been. The people that work here are amazing, the rooms are perfect, the whole place feels like it's your own little world. And then there's Bali. Wow. I think I left a piece of my heart at Desa Seni, I cannot recommend it more highly.

I came with high expectations of Desa Seni, and the place delivered over and above. The setting is delightful, very serene, with beautiful gardens, pool setting and charming little joglo houses for accommodation. The food was utterly delicious, much of the produce grown in the property. The yoga and meditation classes were terrific, all with very caring warm teachers. The... More

I would highly recommend this beautiful resort to anyone who wants to get away for rest and relaxation. I visited from Melbourne,Australia on a yoga retreat and then got to spend an extra six beautiful nights here as the volcanic ash wouldn't let me return home! How happy I was! The houses are very traditional and so delightful. I stayed... More

The Resort is absolutely topclass on Bali Island. The retreat offers are really awesome. Every Wednesday there is a nice meditation meeting from the Narcotic Anonymous. The atmosphere is very calming and serene. Everything is very beautiful surrounded by stunning plants. High recommended for relaxation. Just go for it.

Just stayed 4 nights at Desa Seni and it was exactly what I had hoped for: a beautiful resort, with friendly staff, lovely balinese villas and tasty local organic food. On top of this, the yoga classes were varied and all super interesting. I highly recommend this to couples, families and people looking for a quiet retreat to realign, relax... More
