5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Wow what is they to say... The one bedroom villa was amazing. Staff give 100%. Food 5 star quality. From waking up to eating a freshly cooked breakfast of your choice, inside your private domain, is an experience. Then jumping into your own swimming pool is wonderful. The spa treatments are out of this world. Again this is done in your villa. The staff will go above & beyond any request you ask them. Flowers & candles round the pool in the evening is a scene to see. Will go back one day & experience this again with my children.

We have stayed at Ulin Villas approximately 10 times now, and each time we visit we are reminded why we continue to go back. The service is second to none, we are so grateful to the wonderful staff who always go above and beyond to make our stay pleasurable. We have stayed at many other villas in Bali but nothing compares to the personalised service we receive. The day spa is amazing and the serene setting of the villas is great. We travelled with 2 small children and the pool fence they erected for us makes staying in a villa so much more appealing. Being able to put the children to bed and float around the pool is so much nicer than being stuck in a hotel room. The location is wonderful, a stroll to the main eat street in Seminyak and walking distance to shops and amenities, and they were always willing to drop us where ever we needed to go. Again thank you to our wonderful friends at Ulin we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Room Tip: The one bedroom villa was perfect for our family, the 2 children stayed in the TV area and the staff...

We returned to Bali for 15 year wedding anniversary and were very glad to spend a week at this gem. Location is excellent - walking distance to shops and very good restaurants.

Having a private villa but the Ulin services (spa, food service, transport, advice etc) made this the right combination for us.
Staff organised child minding and restaurants (suggestions and bookings - cross check with tripadvisor, of course) a number of times.

In villa kitchen and cooked breakfast is excellent. Get on a deal and have a spa and lunch/dinner included.
This place deserves the accolades it gets.

Room Tip: Travel with another couple (or your own 2 kids) and get the private rooms to yourself.

Three friends and I just spent 9 days at Ulin in a 3 bedroom villa - just fabulous! I have been to Bali many times in 32 years and while I usually stay at a moderate level of accommodation, I will certainly return to Ulin Villas. The location, delightful and always obliging staff, shuttle service, private breakfast, spaciousness yet private, all made for a wonderful stay. Thank you to all the team at Ulin!

I've just returned from a wonderful 3 days in a beautiful 1 bedroom villa here at The Ulin Villas. I will never stay in a "hotel room" again...pool villas are definitely the way to go. They may be a bit more expensive but money well spent if you get to stay in such a gorgeous place such as this.

It's like a home away from home where you have your own front gate, swimming pool surrounded by lush well maintained gardens and an air-conditioned lounge and bedroom plus the added bonus of your very own spa/massage gazebo. What more could you ask for?

I would like to send a big thank you to all the friendly and efficient staff who looked after me so well. My meals were always prepared beautifully, housekeeping was always done meticulously and the gardens were always well manicured. And they have the knack of going about these daily tasks in a very non-intrusive way, respecting your privacy as their first priority.

I would also like to say a very special thank you to Sudi, the gentleman who picked me up at the airport and also took me shopping. He was very friendly, polite and protective of me when it came to crossing busy roads as well as making sure I didn't get ripped off at the markets. He quite possibly didn't think I noticed but I did. Thank you Sudi, you are a good man and my best regards to you and your family.

I would not hesitate to recommend The Ulin Villas & Spa to anyone searching for this type of accommodation in Bali and I would be happy to stay here again as an alternative to my favourite place, Ubud.

If I may, there is one little negative I would like to mention about my experience while having my spa treatment. Girls, if you're going to give your customers a foot massage right in front of the toilet then the least you can do is try to remember to close the toilet door as it is not a nice view and takes alot away from the ambience of the place.

Room Tip: The 1 bedroom villas are the only ones with air-conditioned living areas and spa gazebo.

Dear “ShellBackPerth”

Thank you very much for taking the time to share and write a very comprehensive review of your stay. I am very happy to know that you made the most of the beautiful villa has to offer and enjoyed the sincere personal service our team members have performed. I agree with you that a private pool villa is a great find and offer a better value as you have everything with you privately. Thank you very much for your high credit to our staff for their friendliness and they have looked after you well especially Nyoman Sudi who always helpful and gone out of his way to ensure your time is perfect. All of our spa room has its own private bath, shower room and toilet. Thank you for your suggestion to always have the toilet door closed even it is your very own one. Once again thank you very much for your review and we all very much look forward to welcoming you again soon.

My partner and I just spent 5 nights at Ulin returning 2 years after our first stay. Everything about this place is perfect - the staff, the villas, the breakfast, the location, the drop-offs around Seminyak, the airport service and I could go on and on.

We are planning on returning to Seminyak every year now and would not even contemplate for a second staying anywhere else.

We have just returned from 5 days at the Ulin Villas and had a wonderful stay! The villa was awesome and the service was excellent. Villas are cleaned from top to bottom every day and at night candles are lit around your private pool to create the perfect holiday experience. Breakfast was good and staff come to cook this is your villa for you at the time you ask for and they will call to let you know they are on the way. Overall we had a fantastic time at the Ulin and we can't thank the staff enough for the experience, from being met at the airport with a private car, cold bottled water and cold face towels to cool down after the craziness of Bali airport all the way through our stay, however, a word of warning about the spa! We booked an Aromatherapy Massage and were not impressed and still have the bruises to show from the experience. Again,the spa staff were friendly but the massage was terrible!
Leave out the spa treatments and you'll have the perfect Bali experience at Ulin, highly recommended!
