“Outstanding accommodations! Cozy Villas ! Perfect location !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

October 2012- My fiance and I stayed 3 nights at Desa Dunia Beda. It wasn't enough! We could have stayed longer. Not only was our villa (Juglo) absolutely perfect but the location was just right. A good distance ( short walk or bike ride) from the town and noise. Desa Dunia Beda offers beachfront bungalows excellent for lounging, having a romantic dinner, lunch and breakfast. We found ourselves camped out there not only eating but enjoying a book, listening to the waves, snorkeling, and taking in spirits. DDB defines relaxation ! The staff were courteous, extremely attentive, and always smiling. We have no recommendations to make it a better place. It is just right ! We will be back ! Thank you Desa Dunia Beda.

Our family spent a few day at Desa Dunia Beda on Gili T in October and it was wonderful. Our family cottage was great for 5 (parents, 15, 14 and 10) with plenty of room and good fans. The staff was wonderful and attentive. We also loved the location, out of the fray of the night life of Gili T, but close enough to get to it when we wanted to. We all swam everyday, walking right off the beach and into amazing waters full of great snorkeling. Nice salt water pool, outdoor shower worked great if you didn't like the indoor salt water system and the food worked for us (although we ate a few dinners in town). DDB is very laid back and UN-resort-like--we loved it!

We staid five days last year at Desa Dunia Beda, we loved every bit of it!
The rooms/villas were nice, spacious and very clean...we miss the gentle and soothing noise of the waves as we woke up in the morning...
The Staff were helpful, friendly and very willing to please all the time.
The food overall, was better than we expected... Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner were always served by the water's edge and what a stunning place to have it...we loved it.
If you like snorkeling...it's only about 30m away from the resort beach front. Beautiful open coral with all sorts or fish as well as lots of turtles...I was there about three times a day...great stuff.
We miss our stay at Desa Dunia Beda and hope to go back soon.

Room Tip: Pick a villa that is closest to the beach front

Situated away from the "strip" - but only a £5 buggy ride this place is just the best - we had 12 days there and I have to say it was amazing....
Great villa - cleaned to a very high standard daily - beautiful views (SUNSET!!) - really friendly staff - nothing is too much trouble - only had breakfast there but it was very good.
It's the perfect place to stay if you want to relax - 7 or 8 private beds on the beach bit more around the pool and easy to get to all the restaurants etc..
One of the few places I have been to that I would go back to....

If you do go however - travel Bluewater Express from Bali - not the others.......class apart!

We was staying at this resort last Feb after reading several feedback from the tripadvisor.
To our surpise, this is another hide away hidden gems even though they are slighly away from the ferry point. My love one and i enjoyed the spaciouness of the room and the whole concept is very much balinese. We love the open deck area for shower as you can shower under the moon or sun. Breakfast was limited selection but it turn to be just nice.They also have their quiet beach front and you can snokell just at your doorstep. For those who prefer quiet and away from the main street you should really consider Desa Dunia and you will be impress after checking in.

Room Tip: Chose the unit that is near to the swimming pool

I like the location of this resort which is North West of the island. The view is spectacular with no other islands in sight. The staffs clean the seafront deck chairs and little gazebo all the time. The Gili beaches are never meant for swimming. The beach in front of DDB is mainly corals washed ashore (at least it's not sea urchin when I was staying at Gili Air) and the staffs are clearing for a stretch of sandy beach as much as they can.

It was raining everyday so the footpath was a bit muddy with some ponding. In general, things are clean compared to many resorts (don't expect impeccable cleanliness anywhere).

The staffs were thoughtful. The moment it rained, they came with umbrella. They were also acceding to my request to vary my breakfast to just sautéed vegetable instead of vegetable fried rice/noodle.

The only thing if I really want to complain was the marked up price for fast boat trip to Bali. It was double the price of all the fast boat companies quoted. May be one more item- although the airport transfer was smooth and boat ride was from private jetty (don't have to walk in sea water before climbing onto the boat), the speed boat has no life jackets. With lightning in the background, I was wondering if I'm going to make it to the island...

Ignore the 2 items above and I had a good stay at DDB. Thanks to the very nice people at DDB.

Dear Robotravels,

Thank you very much to choose to stay with us and to make speciali the trip from Singapour.
We hope for your next visit the sun will shine and you will enjoy more and more your stay.
About the prices for the speed boat we have fixe price (contract rate) with the company who is organizing the trip from Bali, sometimes in low season they put the price down for the direct clients, but as we have a contract with them we can not bargain it, hope you understand this matter.

We would be very happy to see you again in our resort and make sure the service and staff will be good as your first visit

All the best and happy new year

We went out for honeymoon looking to find some out of the ordinary experiences and we got it here. This place is not your regular resort with high features but it offers a very down to earth surrounding which boded well with us. In view of the island and the uniqueness of the place, we think we found what that extra ordinary experience here.
