“Loved it! So peaceful and pampering experience with a strong sense of creativity.”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I stayed for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The javanese house was amazingly beautiful with lots of creative design details and also lots of privacy. The entire place with staff, food, gardens and pool beam of delight and you feel so looked after and pampered as a guest. I did yoga a couple of times too which was nice.

Desa Seni can be described in one simple word…. Exquisite!!!
Masterfully landscaped, organic, tropical, evoking a "Heaven on Earth" experience.
I arose every morning in the skillful hands of accomplished Yoga instructors with their heart chakra open to impart their knowledge and expertise.
This heavenly experience could not exist without Angels in human form soulfully nurturing Desa Seni.
My heartfelt gratitude to:
Owners,Tom and Howard, the skillful and hospitable office staff: Ikin, Nesa, Awan, Dewit and Citra. The bright smiles of excellent service executed by Irham, Yudi, Mustaka, Kadek, Suarda, Budi, and Rai.
I departed replenished, rejuvenated and most importantly whole!!!! Your Cinderella had a ball.

absolutely fell in love with Desa Seni when i stepped in. excellent service and awesome food. the small little attention to details in service, the environment and your surroundings is what makes the difference. the massage was heaven! i came away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and most importantly truly inspired. salute to the people behind Desa Seni - stay true to your mission and soul. you make this place a wonderful sanctuary for city-goers like me to retreat to. i look forward to coming back. xoxo!

Room Tip: the village house is value for money - ample space and room for 2. its quiet and quaint. love it!

Dedicated, elegant, affordable, and unique. There's no other hotel in Bali with this simplicity, beauty and sophistication. You will sleep in a original "Joglo", witch is an Indonesian antique house, surrounded by amazing and beautiful organic gardens. Very nice staff, wonderful and healthy food, great pool and spa, and absolutely quiet. For the first time in my life, I went to meditation classes here, and all I can do is to recommend it to everyone. My wife likes yoga, and she's been busy enjoyng the quality and diversity of the yoga teachers and facilities. Our kids loved the pool and the gardens. Basically, heaven.

We spent few days end of January at Desa Seni and it was so peaceful and relaxing place that we came back home full of positive energy! We stayed in 2 differents houses and both were beautifully arranged. A really big attention is given to details, the garden is so beautiful, the pool is perfect, the staff is so nice, everyday greeting you with few words and big smile! You cannot be in a bad mood in Desa Seni. The food is delicious! Not to mention that you can see the vegetables that you are eating, growing in the garden!
The yoga class were also very good! I will come back with no hesitation and dream already about my next stay :-)
If you plan to go out, you need a taxi or scooter as there is no places around for diner or a walk.

I stayed at Desa Seni for 3 nights in December. I was upgraded to the deluxe village house which was a charming antique cottage. The house was lovely decorated with a lot of colour and detail. It had a private porch with a couch and a table and chairs. The resort is located in a lush garden. The pool area has a nice layout. During my stay a group was doing a retreat, so they didn't use the pool area that much, but as outside guests are also welcome I assume the area can become quite crowded. I didn't have a car and the resort is located in a quiet area so I ate at the resort all three nights. The food was fresh and good, but I would have liked to be in walking distance of some restaurants. The road in front of the resort isn't inviting in that respect. Yoga was included in the price, but I didn't try it. I heard other guests who did and who were very content with the classes. Do try the spa once you're there, I had some wonderful massages. It is on the expensive side for Bali but still way less expensive than the prices back home. The house had a big bathroom, but do note it is an outdoor bathroom.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - it is very much appreciated. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Our philosophy at Desa Seni is one of openness. The pool is in fact open to the public but the pool beds are always reserved for our in-house guests. We do our very best to ensure a pleasant environment while still being an active member of the community here. To this end, if the pool area is busy we will close it to the public to ensure a quiet and peaceful atmosphere for our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future.

I stay at Desa Seni from 2nd to 4th January 2014 . I truly enjoyed the experience. I went to their excellent yoga and meditation classes, well managed. The number of classes per day is very sufficient to keep me busy. I like the Dewi Sri villa, but because it was booked by someone else before I made my booking, so I had to move to Rumah Gambuh, a 2 bedrooms villa shared with other guest. I dont quite like this villa, I think the bedroom is a bit too small. Anyway, that will mean I have Dewi Sri Villa again when I go there next.

I will definitely come back, and as a matter of fact, I plan to go at least once a month, for the yoga and relaxation.

The spa is also excellent .. Well done, Desa Seni
