“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Stayed here for seven nights towards the end of July. Absolutely amazing. Fantastic private pool villas located right in the centre of Seminyak, but set back just off the street enough for it to be quiet. Excellent service and good food. Recommend very highly.

Definitely one of the best villas in Bali, the location, service and facilities of The Ulin were top notch. We stayed at two other top rated villas in Bali but The Ulin was a class above the rest.

The villa provided to us was impeccable; it was spotless, the utilities at the villa were well kept and functioned without a hitch and the ambiance was amazing. Though located at the heart of Seminyak, the villas location and setup provided adequate privacy and quietness. Couple of minutes walk to Seminyak square and Ku De Ta restaurant. Complimentary drop off service provided to other places within the area.

What was more amazing was the service provided to us by your lovely staff. All the staff at The Ulin were fantastic - courteous, always with a smile and quick to offer help to us at all times. They went the extra mile for us in ensuring our trip was comfortable and were able to cater to our every need. Our breakfast, tea and drop off service were managed well, always on time.

The quality of the food at the villa was also excellent. For breakfast, which was cooked in our villa, we had a wide variety of selection to choose from. Room service menu was also extensive, reasonably priced and delicious!

This villa truly made our stay in Bali spectacular! A definite must for anyone planning to stay in Seminyak.

I've wanted to visit Bali since I was 10. After flying in from New Zealand, we were met at the airport by our driver with cool towels and bottled water. We arrived at the Villas and my family declared this immediately to be the best vacation ever! Our two bedroom villa was perfect for my family of four. It was truly paradise. I've stayed in many of the top hotels in the world and I cannot praise the Ulin Villas enough! We loved the pool and the outdoor area. We were spoiled with breakfast every morning. We even moved into two one bedroom villas because we loved it so much. Thank you to the fabulous staff - we really appreciate everything you did to make our stay so wonderful.

Room Tip: any of the villas - they are all wonderful

After 20+ visits to Bali we finally decided to try a Seminyak villa for a few days, and selected Ulin based on TA reviews. We found the villa to be clean, beautifully designed and very spacious. The location was also perfect for proximity to local restaurants such as Bistrot.
The airport pick up and local drop off service was very useful, and the foot massage included in the tariff was very nice. We were quite surprised that reception staff referred to my husband and I by our Christian names - a nice touch.
For us - we also travelled with our 16 and 18 year old sons - villas probably don't offer enough of the wider picture you get when staying at a resort, but as far as reasonably priced, centrally located villas go, these could well be the ones to stay at.

Room Tip: We stayed in the very end 2 bedroom villa - a two storey building next to us detracted from the view...

Ulin Villas is the best place to stay in Seminyak; location wise you are close to restaurants, shops and the beach, and the villas themselves are beautiful. Private pool, excellent service, cooked breakfast daily, they drop you off anywhere in the area. Your own outdoor private bathroom is such a treat! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

If I could give The Ulin 10 stars I would. I have traveled almost all over the world. This is by far one of the best places I have stayed. We stayed here for 13 nights for our honeymoon. From the moment vi were picked up from the airport til we left 13 days later the service was superb. Our one bed room Villa was beautiful. And very clean. not a thing was ever out of place. It was cleaned 1 time a day. And they sprayd it ( for mosquito) and lit candles every night by our private pool. We were alway greeted with a friendly smile, and the staff was very helpful by suggesting things to see and do in Bali. They also drove us to the beach ( they have complimentary drop of service to seminyak and kuta area) The food was delicious. We really got spoiled when the baker came every morning to our Villa and prepared the breakfast we ordered the nigh before. I also had the chance to try their spa. HEAVEN!!!!
If you ever have a chance to go to Bali. This is the place to live!!!
A little piece of Paradise in the heart of seminyak.
