“Secret villa 215”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We have just returned home after 6 days in the superb Dusun Villas. As there were 4 of us, and as we already knew about the "secret" villa 215 (with the self contained 2nd bedroom attached), we specifically booked this villa. The Dusun's website lists 1 and 3 bedroom villas, so enquire about # 215 if you want 2 bedrooms.
Every smile, courtesy, service, staff member, breakfast, car transport and private garden and pool is a sheer joy. This place has the feel of "old Bali" in amongst the modern and chaotic surrounds of the "new" Seminyak.
The only thing we missed was moisturiser and tissues in the bathroom. (If my memory serves me correctly, both of these items were provided during our previous stays).
If these villas are ever demolished because of the very valuable land they sit on, it will be a very sad day. My suggestion; book a villa while this gem is still there to enjoy.

Room Tip: The higher the villa number, the longer the walk to the street entrance. If you don't mind walk...

We stayed at the Dusun for 2 weeks. We were picked up from the airport by the Dusun driver, who had bottles of cold water and refreshing towels for us. Felt good after 22 hour flights. Check-in very quick even as we arrived late at night. Villa was super spacious, with big private pool surrounded by a little tropical garden. Villas are really clean, housekeeping twice a day, pool cleaned almost every day. If to mention something-bathroom could need some update. We had breakfast served every morning on the terrace by the pool at the time we preferred. Lots of choices...delicious! The staff is wonderful, so friendly and efficient, and always with a great smile. You really feel spoiled! Villas are situated perfectly...so quiet, so private. And still walking distance from shops and good restaurants. If you feel lazy to go out, there is a possibility to order food from 7 different restaurants, served by the staff at your own villa. Used it a lot...fantastic food and service. Special thanks to Andre for introducing us the culture and traditions of this beautiful island. Thank you Dusun for making our stay so memorable.

We recently spent 10 beautiful nights at Dusun Villas . The 3 generous bedrooms , all ensuited with a gorgeous bathroom , enable complete privacy for all of us so perfect for either family or friends holidaying together . The pool is a great size and perfectly designed , and is cleaned every couple of days . Breakfast was outstanding and the wonderful staff quietly enter the villa and cook while we are still waking , knowing once again the seriously yummy Banana Pancakes awaits us . All the staff , Including the security , are always smiling and do everything to ensure you have a wonderful relaxing holiday . Location is perfect , walking distance to La Luciola and many other fabulous restaurants , shops , beach , treatment and hair salons . Definitely would highly recommend for anyone seeking comfort , relaxation , privacy .

This was my fifth stay at the Dusun Villas in Seminyak. I cannot say enough about Gede (the manager) and his staff at the Dusun. From the moment you arrive, nothing is too much trouble for any of them. They always greet you with a smile and they make you feel like part of their family. The villas are beautiful and the pool and gardens superb after an exhausting day of shopping and walking. It helps to have Bodyworks around the corner for the obligatory massage/facial/mani-pedi.
Thanks once again to Gede and all his staff and see you again soon.

We only had 2 nights at The Dusun. My daughter and I were having a quick shopping break before heading up to Nsua Dua. Thank goodness we had The Dusun to come back to after walking round Seminyak - I had forgotten how busy it is. The villa was lovely and the pool really justifies the price. Breakfast in the villa was good.
Can't comment on any other services as didn't have dinner or a car and driver. However the driver that took us up to Nsua Dua was lovely, the nicest member of staff. Only down side was the lady on reception who 'welcomed' us - not much of a welcome there I'm afraid. Very offhand.
All in all though if you want peaceful and a bit of luxury away from the madness of Seminyak this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We were in Villa 8 which is right next to reception. Therefore people would be walking past at night...

I went with 2 friends and we each had our own room with a bathroom. The private pool was worth it. It was huge and even had a deep end!

The breakfast being made for us every day helped us really relax. The staff even cleans up afterward. I ordered room service one night and the meal I had from the Italian place was surprisingly great.

The spa services were so cheap compared to US spas, so we had a treatment every day. The spa employees were young, so it's not exactly like getting a five-star treatment, but a 90-minute massage for $24ant be beat. They came to our villas for it but if you wanted a wrap, I think you had to go outside of the property.

While you really never have to leave your villa, you can walk down to the beautiful beach nearby. There are also restaurants you can easily walk to. Great location. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Get the villa with the big pool!

We had 2 weeks at the Dusun. How restful it was. The service was wonderful. All the staff friendly and accommodating. Wonderful to have a car and driver.
The decor is getting a bit tired, particularly the bathroom, but adequate and quite comfortable.

I do think the staff could have a uniform update and a change of colour that would enhance the girls beautiful complexions.

Room Tip: Very spacious villas. Had a peak at the 3 bedder. Perfect for extended families. Fantastic pool.
