Desa Seni was a real Gem in the Padi Field. The place was so relaxing, beautiful and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was fabulous and the whole atmosphere helped make my destress time so perfect. Highly recommend Desa Seni if you want to reconnect with nature and yourself.

We have just come from a four day stay at Desa Seni at Canggu, near to Seminyak, and what a find it turned out to be. We stumbled onto it almost by accident, but it will certainly be on our list of places we have to return to. I say “places” because it doesn’t fit into any pigeonhole. Roughly translated,... More

Every soul needs a reminder that dreams can be real and Desa Seni is a sweet lullaby of a dream. Like Alice in Wonderland, I accidentally fell into a world of magic charm, which made the discovery all the sweeter. My hotel in Seminyak closed down and a fellow yogi suggested a guy called Tom may have room at his... More

Great place has a local feel. A bit off the path, which can be nice. The bungalows are fantastic. Food is solid. A bit of a yoga retreat feel to the place. We would go there again.

We came with two little children (2 and 4 years old) and even if its mainly a place for people looking for a yoga retreat - which it really is - we where invited to live in this little "village" as best friends in every way. The kids enjoyed the stay and we loved it.

We loved this place! We have been to Bali 3 times and stayed many areas and places. This was our all time favorite place we have stayed. We were booked for 5 days and extended our stay because we loved it so much! The food is amazing, organic and so tasty, and great pricing. The individual houses are wonderful and... More

The amazing thing about Bali is of course that the whole island is beautiful and it's therefore easy to be impressed and because of this there are of course a lot of impressive hotels/villas in Bali. However, Desa Seni still stands out and it's a magnificent example for a owner operated resort. It pretty much boils down to two things.... More

What 14 members and relatives of our family experienced at Desa Seni from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2 was almost paradisiacal, the whole compound with its tropical trees and flowers radiating peace and harmony. All the people working there were most friendly, heart-warmingly hospitable and attentive to our needs. The nicely furnished Javan houses provided cosy and comfortable accommodation, the... More

After 7 months of daily stress, at last I arrived in Bali. From the moment I arrived, I felt relieved by Desa Seni’s peaceful and nurturing environment. As the welcoming staff took me to my adorable ‘rumah’, I began to unwind with its breathtaking beauty and cultural atmosphere that surrounded me. The traditional Indonesian architecture contrasted well with the modern... More

We just got back from spending 2 weeks in Bali and must say that our stay at the Desa Seni was our favorite! The grounds are truly what one thinks of when they imagine Bali, heavenly, beautifully manicured gardens, flowers everywhere, and a fantastic pool! Surrounded by rice fields, it's nestled a short distance from the best shopping and beaches!... More
