Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

First time to a yoga retreat & it was amazing all round from the moment we got there...the staff very friendly & all remembered your name, rooms Balinese authentic, food was incredible and organic veges homegrown used with all meals. Attentive to service needs & areas where you can relax by yourself. Had an average massage there, but everything else was superb. Booking next year!

How can you repeat a dream?? I didn't think it was possible until we went back toto Desa Seni for our second visit. We weren't going to go back but the pull was irresistible. And it didn't disappoint!
We made the most of every gorgeous, serene, relaxing, therapeutic minute over 8 days. We had discovered yoga on our first visit there a year ago and became hooked. This time, we maxed out on the classes doing everything from the yoga through to Saffire's wild dance sessions.... in between making the most of the intense and sensational massages or the pristine pool. The food again was delicious and soooo fresh and healthy. The staff so attentive ... especially Kadek who on our last night created a romantic picnic feast where he scattered hand-picked flowers on our tablecloth. How can you beat that?! We love that place so much. Thank you again

I have just returned from a 6 night stay at Desa Seni and I feel amazing! I arrive stressed and rundown and leave with a new sense of purpose, completely relaxed and invigorated. Desa Seni is a truly unforgettable experience. From the moment you arrive, you are escorted to your own private house and given a tour and a beautiful welcome juice! The next day you open up your door to paradise. I stayed in Wungsu and loved it as it was a private space that you could retreat to. I ke the resort only twice as I just loved the peace and tranquility of the resort. It's definitely the place you could go by yourself, it's a friendly atmosphere and the staff are amazing and take great care of you. The spa staff are fantastic (Muli is exceptional), the restaurant staff are so welcoming, nothing is ever a problem and the reception crew are all helpful and genuine. The food is delicious and healthy, you won't want to eat anywhere else. And the yoga is amazing, you can dip in and out of it as you like. Also try the NIA dance with Sapphire - I loved it. Thank you to everyone at Desa Seni for a beautiful experience, I'll be back.

Room Tip: Wungsu is away from the main area, so nice and quiet but the wildlife (frogs and lizards!) can be no...

I spent eight days at Desa Seni. The place is a paradise! The organic food they serve is amazing. There are so many choices (each of them delicious) that it is difficilt to decide which one to order. The yoga classes are fantastic. I also had individual meditiation and pranayama lessons with Angela, who is the best yoga teacher I have ever head ! It is also worth to participate in other classes such as Kundalini yoga with Daphna (amazing experience) and Dance into Being with Saffire (dance I will always remember). The staff is super helpful and kind. They really care of the guests and make sure that everything is perfect. I will definitely come back to Desa Seni.

I have been living and traveling Asia for over 7 years, and this trip was my 5th visit to Bali. Desa Seni was PERFECT. The room, the food, the yoga, the service, the other guests... I could not have asked for more. I will be back as soon as I possibly can. Thank you for a lovely, rejuvenating visit. Hope to see you again soon :)

Looking to have some down time in Bali I booked my first 2 nights of my holiday at Desa Seni. However, as soon as I entered the grounds I fell in love and extended my stay for the entirety of the trip. As a solo traveller, I felt like I was part of a wonderful community.The food (mostly grown on premise) it exceptional, the staff incredible (they all know your name) and the accommodation beautiful. Best of all the yoga is incredible and classes are free to guests.

Desa Sei also has a warm heart, with a plastic-free policy, an internship program for Bali orphans and even free bicycle hire.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and private (there's only 13 in total), however I stayed in a Village House
