The over 400 reviews pretty much cover everything about this amazing place. It is indeed a serene oasis of greenery & calm. As such I've decided to concentrate on the outstanding support & service from the staff. Before departing from my 1 week yoga retreat at Desa Seni, I found out they employ over 80 people with 2 managers in... More

i came to Desa Seni for the yoga classes. Staying as a single traveler and booking on short notice, i received the Single Village House, just across from the pool, which is a traditional balinese house with a small terrace and an en - suite bathroom. It reminded me a bit of small cottages i rented on thai beaches. But... More

I just returned from a week-long yoga retreat held at Desa Seni and I am still bowled over how precious this little gem of a resort is. I have been to Bali 4 times and it is not hard to find wonderful places to stay but Desa is bar none the best 'hotel' experience I have ever had. In Bali... More

Desa Seni is a beautiful village and our two week stay there was made extra pleasant thanks to the ever smiling and helpful staff. The houses vary in size and "lived in" feel, with the ones at the bottom of the property smaller, more noisy due to construction at the far end of the property and not Wifi-accessible. The pool...

We loved our time at Desa Seni. Unfortunately their accommodate was fully booked over our dates, but we were still able to try out one of their yoga classes (Antonia's Hatha class) and also a treatment in their lovely day spa. The staff are so kind and the grounds are beautiful. Each room is so unique and charming. We hear... More

I came tired and needing to get away from the hustle of Seminyak and left two days later refreshed and peaceful. This place is simply exquisite. I am so impressed with the soul of the place. Everything is antique and recycled and so creatively put together. The grounds are unbelievable. You are surrounded by the beautiful vegetables that they grow... More

I spent 5 days here and it was amazing. The service is excellent and the food is so good, they grow 80% of the food on site and it is so healthy fresh and very tasty. The gardens are kept immaculate and the salt water pool is beautiful. We got the Banjar Break Package and were not disappointed.

I recently stayed at Desa Seni for 7 nights on a private therapeutic yoga retreat. From the moment I was greeting at the front desk, to when I regretfully had to leave, I was treated with kindness and friendly smiles by all the staff. The 1:1 yoga and meditation sessions with Bernd opened my eyes to the infinite possibility of... More

We felt pampered from beginning to end. Every detail is considered - visually, spiritually and decadently. Simple and rich - beautiful, down to earth and elegant. We stayed for one week and wished we could have stayed longer. The yoga classes were amazing, the staff attentive and the room comfortable.

This is simple still one of the best if not the best for yoga in Bali. The holistic living approach, the gardens, healthy menu restaurants and the teachers of the yoga make this resort a stand out in Bali. If you are abel to ensure you book in for the yoga course retreats they hold!
