“Grate place but noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

However the next door bar & construction site was very noisy and sometimes very disturbing, we managed to have a lovely time. The staff was friendly and helpfull, the breakfast delicious & abundant.
+ Huge and the most comfortable bed ever
- Should be more light in bathroom, around mirror
Overall great place.

We went for a babymoon at the Dipan, for a relaxing trip in one of their suites. Indeed, the staff there are very considerate and warm. They remembered our names throughout the stay and were very helpful. The staff even had mosquito coils lit and placed in our outdoor pool area in the evening!. The private pool is great to cool down after a day out, however without steps leading up and out, it may be dangerous.
As for the food served, it has got to be one of the best! We had breakfast there every morning and the eggs were done very nicely. The construction did not bother us at all, neither did the music at the nearby bar (as we had feared prior to the trip).
Overall it was a great stay, and we'd definitely return for future stays!

We stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon, Yes there was construction going on next door but this didn't fault our service.

The dipan is more of a boutique hotel than a resort, this suited us just perfect as it was very quiet and relaxing. The pool is small but beautifully presented. There is a great pool bar next door if u want to swim and drink.

The staff were faultless, nothing was too much trouble, they even went and got us bali belly tablets when we felt sick

Aaaaaaa++++++

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in January. When we first entered our room, we were quite impressed with the design; it's clearly new and looked great. But then, we opened the curtains, and one the one side saw a construction site, and on the other saw the Hu'u bar, the local disco. Whoooooooops. We were assured we wouldn't be bothered too much by both, so we decided to give it a try. The club on Friday went on until around 1AM (uurgh), but the construction site didn't give much interference. In fact were were surprised, we expected to be quite annoyed about it.
The next day however, after we got back from our day trip we found a letter apologizing upfront about the club night, 2 tickets to the club and 2 pairs of earplugs. Uhm...this may be good for a few teenage clubbers, but not for a couple looking to celebrate their honeymoon in peace and quiet. Result, I couldn't sleep all night, rather I could sing along to all of the tunes. The next day we decided to complain and staff were luckily happy to grant us a villa for the remaining days of our stay. Indeed there was a lot less noise there, so that was quite an improvement. Down point was that the front door needed to be slammed shut, and other doors were, even though just new, couldn't shut properly at all. This and the poor insulation of our first room did make us wonder how this could be a 5-star property.
Breakfasts were included in our rate and was good. Staff were helpful, spoke OK enough English to get by most basic stuff, and were always friendly.
The spa was also good, visited it twice and have no complaints there.
All in all - we fear they built this resort a little too quick, as some improvements already need to be made. But it's still a nice place to stay, providing you choose one of the villas, or not stay in the hotel rooms over the weekend.

Naming this property a resort may be unsuitable due to its size. The Dipan is a very small establishment tucked away in a corner of Seminyak. It is currently surrounded by construction sites and even the road leading to the resort is unpaved. I'll probably not be able to find my way to the resort if not for the airport transfer provided.

We arrived via an airport transfer service which was included in our package. As I was previously staying at the Tanjong Benoa area near Nusa Dua, I called the resort for a change of pick up location which they were glad to accommodate at no extra charge! However, the resort did made a last minute change in the said pick up timing and the driver was late due to the usual traffic in Bali. We were picked up by Mr Putu, the resort's freelance part-time driver. You may privately engage Mr Putu for day tours which are cheaper than whatever is provided by the resort.

During check-in, we tried to request for late check-out 2 days later but was rudely turned down by the staff at reception stating that the resort was fully booked. We were then checked into a one-bedroom villa 107 which was very beautiful and romantically decorated with rose petals all around the room. However, villa 107 was tucked away in a corner near the main building but beside the construction site just behind the villa's walls. Although we were very delighted upon entering the villa, it had a very bad stench originating from the toilet bowl, the housekeeping staff was called in. They cleaned the toilet bowl again, probably sprayed an entire bottle of air freshener around the bathroom apparently trying to mask the stench. Thus, we decided to go explore Seminyak and return to see if the stench lingered on. Upon returning, the stench was still prevalent, so we called to request for a villa change. To our surprise, we were upgraded to a three-bedroom villa 302! Though it was kinda odd for a couple to be staying in such a big, 2-storey villa, we gladly accepted the upgrade rather than sleeping in a room with a stench. The bathtub in villa 302 was leaking a little which slightly flooded the bathroom. The showers also lack shower curtains.

The Dipan lacks a proper driveway for guests to alight, there was once when we had to alight from our taxi in heavy rain though it was a quick run. The main building was also not sheltered to the villas however, we were offer umbrellas. The staff around the property are very friendly except for one lady from the reception desk.

The private pools attached to the villas were not as private as expected. Since there are 2-storey villas and the main building around, these pools can be viewed from windows of neighbouring villas or the main building where rooms are located. Definitely not much privacy. The pools were also quite deep, about 1.7-1.5 metres from one edge to the other. Though not very deep, there was no ladder or steps to exit the pool. This was raised to staff during check-out and the housekeeping manager assured us that the ladders were ordered and will be installed soon.

Meals at the resort are tasty and fantastic but a little pricey as with any other hotel which usually mark up menu prices. There are no food areas nearby except for a Nasi Ayam (Chicken Rice) stall about 10 minutes walk away.

Overall, the stay is great with a few teething issues that need to be ironed out. I'll definitely return believing that these minor problems will be fixed.

Room Tip: Deny villa 107 unless the plumbing if fixed.

Everything you could possibly wish for in a villa. Huge rooms with quality bathrooms, well maintained and extremely cosy. The living area accommodating for friends and family. A small but nice pool just outside the living room door in case you don't wish to use the shared pool outside the villa. Food wise, it was great, from the ambience of the dining area to the quality of the food! Especially the dinner menu. And the breakfast was definitely worth waking up for. The staff were all very friendly and very ready to help. They would greet you as many times as they see you with a huge smile on their faces, making you want to smile too. Some of them would even go out of their way to assist you. The hotel provides services that do make your stay in Bali much more convenient. For example, they rent bikes, they pick up/ drop off at the airport, hired driver for the day at a price, and many more! The villa was worth every cent paid and a second visit would happen for sure!

Dipan resort is a fairly new boutique hotel set in the heart of Seminyak. Unfortunately it is currently surrounded on 3 sides by building sites which does not bode well for peace and quiet during the day. And at night, on the 4th side, there is the Hu-Bar which pumps until 2-3 in the morning. Construction is expected to continue for much of 2013.
So much for the cons. On the upside the rooms are large and well appointed with a great bathroom area. There is a separate shower and stand-alone bath. There is TV and a tea-making facility and bottled water is supplied free of charge daily.Beds are large and very comfortable.
Staff are incredibly friendly and willing to help and the chef is superb. Meals are of a high quality and well presented and compare with the standard expected in a much larger facility.
There is a small swimming pool although we failed to make use of it.
Do make use of the shuttle. Taxis to and from the airport are a nightmare and it is well advised to book the shuttle to meet you if flying in to Denpasar and going direct to the hotel
