Villa de daun
Ranked #6 of 207 Specialty Lodging in Kuta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 13, 2009

I travelled to Bali with a group of young guys on a Rugby trip they stayed at the Bounty and I needed a bit of solitude but close enough to be partying with the group (1 -2 nights at Bounty is enough for anyone). Villa De Daun was everything I expected the one bedroom pool villa was as good as any similar I have stayed in, the staff was friendly and courteous, rooms clean and well catered . I only rarely travel alone usually with my better half and she would have found De Daun to her liking. I only had breakfast at the hotel so cannot really comment on restaurant overall - breakfast was average . If in Bali and you want to be near the action of Kuta and Legian then I would say try De Daun it is a pleasant surprise.

Me & fiance booked A one bedroom villa for 3 nights to celebrate his birthday.

When we reached the room we switched on the tv & all the programs were blurry.. we called the receptionist & a technician came & we were told that there's nothing they can do as it was the network /recept problem & every villa was having the same problem.

We believed him & count ourselves unlucky & thought maybe such a backward country, such prob was normal.

On the last night the air con break down.. We called the technician again & he said would arrange us to change to another villa. We were of course fed up..

We packed out bag & moved to another villa .. which was the executive villa.. When we reached the villa, the staff actually told us we could only use the bed to sleep.. we cant use the pool, bathroom & living room! he say we have to return to our own villa for brekafast next day. WHAT THE [--]

My fiance raised his vocie at the staff.. told the staff off! we told him it was our last night here & the air con broke down & he expect us to return next morning to our villa just to have a breakfast! we are checking at 10am! does it makes any difference!

the angrier thing that happened was when we switched on the tv, it was perfectly clear!! All the programs were working!!

Obviously it was only the tv in our room that was giving us problem, but they just brushed it off! if my air con had not broken down & if i had not been tranfered to the executive villa i would not have known their staffs were so dishonest!

When i checked out, i told the staff exactly what i wrote.. they could only say 'sorry sorry'..

Staying in this villa really spOiled my holiday! would never return to the villa again ever again.

I will start with the summary, the Villa's are really nice, and bearing in mind it was the Deluxe villa we stayed in, it is hard to imagine anyone that wouldn't like it here. We had a look in the other villa's and they looked similar to the deluxe, and still very nice.
The Staff deserve a paragraph of their own, they were so polite and friendly, they really seemed genuine in their desire to help. Any requests/Items we asked for were usually provided quickly.
The Pool also was excellent, very clean and the desin meant there was very little build up of bugs or leaves even overnight. There is a bath tub besides teh pool on the outside of the bathroom which is a nice touch. The interior is a modern design split living/sleeping arrangement. Being a guy, I should mention that the Villa we stayed in had above average HiFi equipment. An acceptable surround DVD player and a selection of recent, albeit pirated, DVD's for loan was a nice touch. The Boss CD player in the living area I didn't get to try.
My only complaints are as follows.
First the Internet. The Villa's were supposed to have wifi, however this didn't work. If you are used to being Hyper-connected like me. Then anything longer than brief periods away from the internet can be frustrating. There is a computer in the central restaurant area to share, But more often than not it could not connect to the Internet. Being in IT once or twice I managed to coax it to life but even then it didn't last long. I had to resort to buying a Bali SIM card and using GPRS.
The toilets weren't particularly powerful, and didn't flush so well. But they do have power shower heads by the side to assist flushing.
The final complaint would be the noise of Dogs barking all through the night. They appear to be on shift work, and starting from dusk, they bark and yelp relentlessly until sun up. These dogs are not on the Villa Property but they have no problem making themselves heard. Having said that I still managed to get to sleep OK.

This place is amazing.

It is set in the busy area of Legian, which is pretty much part of Kuta.
As everyone says, it is a world away from the hussle of the surrounding area.

We stayed in the one bed delux villa on our honeymoon august 09. It is a great base if you want to travel around while you're there. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Make sure you have the romantic dinner where they fill the pool with petals etc, see images.

Make sure you go to Jimbaran Bay to watch the sunset whilst you eat fresh fish on the beach, it is not far in a taxi.

When you stay there they have drivers that will drop you off for small trips at no charge, just make sure you book a few hours in advance.

Be very careful changingup money at a money changer. We like to think ourselves our experienced travellers, having travelled some very basic areas of south east asia, but were still fooled by a local money changer. Just before you leave, check what you have in your hands. We managed to get our money we were owed but we were lucky. Basically the currency is very confusing as there are around 15,000 to GBP £, they try all the tricks to confuse you.

For dinner, the best restaurants are in Seminyak, which is down the road, there are some other great hotels here too. Seminyak is better prepared for western tourists but still has enough culture to make it an experience. Taxi's are very cheap, just make sure you take a Bluebird taxi and that it is on the meter.

Bali is not the maldives, there is lots to do but the streets are dirty, some parts are commercial but Villa de Daun is wonderful.

Room - Great spacious with private pool that is clean! bathroom is super big and clean! Beds were comfortable and sheets were soft.

Breakfast was authentic good local food! Chef cooking in our villa.
Restaurant that serves teppanyaki was rubbish. not recommended. save your money and eat at the many restaurants nearby.

Spa wasnt up to standard.

Overall - its 5 star quality.
