“Well beyond expectation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had a 10 night stay at the Dusun, and I am sure this is a family holiday we will all remember. Family of 4 - my wife and myself plus two late-teenager children. Really nothing to fault and so much to praise. Walking through the front door you are greeted by a villa set up that if anything looks better than the promotional photos/videos on the website. Immaculate grounds, superb spotless pool and a fantastic indoor/outdoor area with ample seating, a large dining table and great kitchen area. The rooms themselves were excellent and spacious, each bedroom with a large ensuite. However even the villa was overshadowed by the outstanding and friendly service - nothing was too much trouble for the Dusun staff.

Not cheap but you do get what you pay for :) Would recommend unreservedly, I really can't imagine anyone being disappointed by the Dusun.

Room Tip: We had a 3 room villa #6 which was perfect for ourselves and our two teenagers, as they were able to...

Our holiday here was PERFECT! A group of friends and I stayed here for a week and we had an amazing time. The service is fantastic, the staff are all friendly, would stop and have a chat with us, were happy to organise anything we needed, recommended great restaurants. They even surprised us with a birthday cake for one of the girls on her birthday! The rooms were beautiful, the pool incredible and breakfast each morning was so yum. We also had the traditional BBQ one night, the staff came decorated the villa, cooked sensational food and had a traditional band playing. The Manager would check in with us every few days to check that we were enjoying our stay and having the car drop us off at places was so helpful.
The location couldn't get any better. I came home and raved about it to all my friends.
We will hopefully be returning again this year!!

Our long awaited stay at the Dusun Villas was unfortunately a disappointment.... The main reason being that our neighbors decided to have an outdoor disco at their villa the moment we settled into our villa (4 pm). We made several calls to reception to ask them to handle the situation. The volume was tuned down for about 10 minutes, for it to go back to full. We got several calls from reception and from the manager to apologize, but nothing was really done. The manager offered us to move to another villa that evening, but as we had just finished the triathlon, we did not feel like packing up again. The next morning the disco started at 9 am! Once again, the management failed to handle the situation. Luckily for us, the couple left later that day, so on our last day we did have some peace and quiet.
We were very disappointed by the way the management handled the situation. This is not what you expect of such a high standard and expensive hotel!

We have just returned from 4 wonderful nights at the Dusun. From the moment you arrive you feel special and the villas are to die for. We are a family of 5 and the 3 bedroom villas were perfect. Large pool for the kids to go crazy in, fantastic undercover/outdoor day couches, kitchen and dining area and beautifully lit at night.

The driver service was fantastic, although you sometimes felt guilty using it to go to the restaurants as they were such as short walk away. Mexicola is right next door which is a trully authentic mexican restaurant, not "Tex Mex". The Grocer and Grind is 100 metres away and everything delicious.

We had one mishap when one of the boys split his chin and required stitches. The manager was there instantly and organised transport straight away to the Bali clinic and had the driver stay while our boy was gettign fixed up.

The bbq in your villa is a must with the candles and ornaments setup, music played by two musicians and full service, a great way to spend your last night.

We have travelled extensively through Asia and this was by far the best place we have stayed in.

It is not just the luxury of the villas but also the friendliness of everyone who works here.

Well done Dusun, hope to stay with you again soon!

Cheers

Simon, Jane, Nick, Tom & Jack

My husband and i decided to go different this year, and chose a private one bedroom villa with pool, cooked breakfast in villa. We had 17 night's which were absolutely delightful, very relaxing, very quiet. The staff were delightful, very polite, friendly, nothing too much bother. The villa was very clean, we were asked when we had breakfast, when we would like our room cleaned, the Gardner would come at the same time and clear any fallen leaves etc. The pool guys came every other day and cleaned the pool. You could choose to have meals bought in from various restaurants if wanted, they also had in villa bbqs and other choices.
Cars are available to take you to Seminyak, you make own way back.
The location is ideal, in a quiet area. But close enough to walk to the shops, and a HUGE variety of restaurants, we ate in a different one every night.
Highly recommend The Dusun Villa. We will go back.

The slogan says it all 'Beyond Expectation'. My wife and I stayed in a one bedroom villa for 7 nights, we arrived exhausted after starting our journey at 2.30am. On arrival we're greeted warmly by the delightful staff with refreshing cold towels, our check-in was efficient and we were soon being shown everything in the villa, and then left with the phrase "if you need anything just dial zero". We decided not to leave our beautiful and extremely private villa that day, so for lunch and dinner we dialled '0', there's no on site restaurant so you have takeaway menus from local restaurants, you choose, the Dusun staff order, collect and the plate up in your villa for you. What a start to a wonderful break.

Everyday all the staff were delightful, happy and helpful which just makes a good holiday great, they booked restaurants for us, the complimentary driver service dropped us off (and collected us again when called), they serviced the rooms beautifully, cooked breakfast in our villa and delivered afternoon tea. I could not think of anything they could have done better, just wonderful, thank you so much Dusun Staff.

The villas were well equipped with wifi available and well appointed, the pool was spotless and the water well balanced (I checked, sad, but it's my job in Oz haha). Before going I had read a couple of reviews that suggested the villas were a bit tired, yes if you look hard enough you can find evidence of this but please they weren't built yesterday and they are immaculate.

In summary I would highly recommend staying here, it's an Oasis in busy holiday spot, run by beautiful people.

We came to the Dusun for our 10 year wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The one bedroom villa was just lovely, such a spacious sitting and kitchen area and so quiet. Everyday the fantastic staff cooked us a breaky of our choosing which was always delicious. Nothing was ever too much trouble, from the free wifi to the complimentary car to drop you where ever you needed to go, right down to the smiling faces where ever you went in the complex, they were always eager to help. The Dusun could not have been better situated as it is walking distance to the main street, Seminyak Square and the beach. And to top off our stay on the day of our Anniversary they bought us a cake with candles to celebrate, a lovely touch. Thank you so much for a wonderful 7 night stay, we will definately be back!
