“An oasis in seminyak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

We LOVED our stay at the dipan. To be honest, we didn't love seminyak (too much traffic, quiet at this time of the year) but coming back to the dipan after every hot day was like heaven. We felt a little guilty for never wanting to leave.

Pros:
- we stayed in a villa with a private pool. It was fantastic. Great facilities, nice bathroom, what more could you want
- the common area pool was amazing, like you see in magazines
- the breakfasts were included and a little ridiculous :) 7 different options, lots of food, and really really good.
- the spa was very peaceful, well priced (at least competitive) with places around town
- all staff was friendly and helpful (pick up at the airport was much appreciated)

Cons: (and I'm stretching to come up with some)
- location isn't ideal right now. Construction could be an issue if a really light swimmer
- area is really quiet in low season. Really nice club next door but dead all throughout the week
- Internet in the rooms was very weak - good quality in the common space

Would stay again for sure!!!

I would like to first of all thank everyone at the Dipan for their hospitality and overall sunny disposition. Unfortunately during our stay my girlfriend and I became ill, thankfully the staff at the Dipan were exceptional in providing us with the right medication and attending to our needs. I would like to make special mention of both Era and Ketut who most helpful throughout our trip. The rooms are spacious and well kept with a modern balinese feel. As has been said the beds are huge and most comfortable. We found the housekeeping to be clean and efficient. Try to get a villa room as you have your own private pool which is perfect when you come back from a long day out touring. Unfortunately for the Dipan it is surrounded by construction work that makes the surrounds quite unappealing, although when inside the hotel you would not be aware of whats surrounding you as we found the outside noise to be non existent. On one night we did hear the bass from the Hu'u bar although it was low enough to not bother our sleep. If there was to be one criticism of the Dipan it would be that the food is quite bland and does not offer a wide range of selection. This is but a minor dent in the reputation the Dipan has built in my opinion. I would highly recommend a stay at the Dipan for those who wish to stay in Seminyak. Once again I would likely to sincerely thank the staff for making our trip a memorable one.

Room Tip: Room 105 is the furthest away from both construction and hu'u bar. Also try to bargain for an up...

My stay at The Dipan was fantastic. I went there for a weekend getaway to celebrate my wife's birthday.Their staff was very friendly. From the driver that pick us up, to the security guard, who offered us an umbrella, to the receptionist and up to the staff that set the candle light dinner for us. Each and everyone of their staff is very well versed in English, so no worries to guests who cant speak Bahasa Indonesia. I email them a couple weeks earlier requesting a special dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. On that day, everything went perfectly. Even the security guard came in and wish my wife a Happy Birthday.
On top of that, the facilities were amazing to me. They have this service called turn down the room, I didn't know what was it actually till the staff came in the evening and do it. Turn the down the room means they will set up the mosquito repellent for you and some other stuff.
The bathroom was huge inclusive of a huge bathtub.
I really enjoy my stay with the Dipan and I woudl love to be back there again next time.

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.
