We stayed in villa 1, 3 bedrooms. There were 6 adults and wow were we impressed. This place is just fantastic. Absolutely stunning, staff were exceptional, breakfast cooked for us in our villa was amazing and fresh, and massive amounts of it.
Would highly recommend this place, we can't speak highly enough of it. Thank you to all the wonderful staff

This is the second time that 6 of us have headed to Bali for a girls getaway, each time we have stayed at The Dusun and we love it! Whilst some new lounge covers and more pool recliners would be great...The staff and service is amazing, our 3 bed villa complex is huge, love the local drop off's, in house massages, our cooked personal breakfast, the in-house menu is some of the great restaurants around town and you also can walk to Bodyworks, Sister fields, Motel Mexicola, Grocer & Grind..the beach plus many other great places....however the best part is the amazing staff!
Thanks for making our trip amazing each year!

I stayed at the Dusun for 8 nights with my family 6 adults, and my 2 grandchildren aged 4 and 16 months, from the moment we arrived the staff at the Dusun were fantastic. We were then showed to our Villa (villa 4) we thought the villas would be nice but they are stunning. Gede and the staff had erected the pool fence, cot was set up and spare bed all ready. To have our breakfast cooked for us every morning was a really big spoil and the food beautiful. Would just like to thank Gede and all the Dusun Family for making our stay as easy and memorable as possible. The Dusun is also so close to everything especially Bodyworks a bonus. If we needed to go anywhere the staff would organise a car and drive us to our destination another big bonus. Thank you again to all.

We stayed at The Dusun for 2 nights from 25.07.14. The one bedroom villa was just perfect - the outdoor kitchen and sitting area are great. The small pool is just big enough. The bathroom was huge. The staff were super friendly, efficient and helpful- great that they provide a free shuttle service into Seminyak. The villas are a moments walk from the beach. Simply a fabulous place to stay - very easily accessible to both the shops and restaurants of Seminyak as well as the beach. We just loved our time there.

Very nice villa. Very quiet. The decor of our villa was nice, liked the outdoor living room.

Breakfast extremely well done for both the two mornings we were there.

Really good that they have a very full room service menu which basically brings food in from nearby outside restaurants. Used this twice and it is a really easy option, and food quality high from the places they used for their room service.

We had a young 3-year old and they had the foresight (without being asked) to put a mattress on the floor for us.

The only thing I didn't like was the raised (white) platform that the bed was on. Difficult to see (as the bed also white), and easy to trip on at night... But that's a small point, and difficult to do anything about.

Definitely well-run villas.

When we first arrived to Bali we were very tired from our travels and as soon as we got to the hotel we were greeted with such warmth and hospitality. Throughout our stay we were made the feel special at all times and all of the staff gave such attentive details to every need. Gede was amazing!!! As he organized some fantastic trips for us which we will never forget. We will defiantly be going back to the Dusun in the future as everything about it such as the staff, the Villas and the locations was perfect! Thanks so much guys for making our stay a memorable one.

This was my second visit to The Dusun after having my first Villa experience in Bali there three years ago.
What a lovely surprise it was to be greated by the same familiar faces from my last stay including Dewi and The General Manager Gede, who when I arrived annouced "Welcome Home!" remembering me from the last trip which was a family holiday.
On the first occassion, we had chosen a large three bedroom villa, which, in such prime position in Seminyak, is enormous compared with many of the newer villas available.
Having such a wonderful experience last time, I decided on this occassion, to travel solo for a much needed break and enjoy a one bedroom villa.
The size of the villas and gardens is remarkable, secluded around the high set walls and beautiful garden, with lush manicured lawns, a sparkling and large size pool as well as generous pavillion, self contained kitchen and enormous bedroom and bathroom.
While Bali undoubtedly has some of the most beautiful 5 star hotels in the world, I am afraid that it is difficult to go back after experiencing the Dusun's seclusion, size and exclusivity of enjoying an extremely private Balinese experience.
The location is outstanding, within minutes out the door to the beach, my favorite Day Spa Bodyworks across the road and fabulous restaurants and bars such as La Luciolla, The Woo Bar at the W and Ku de Ta. Seminyak Square, ideal for families travelling with young children and wanting casual dining, is within walking distance. The hotel generously has a full time driver employed to arrange complimentary drop off nearby. I was so grateful to attend a daily pilates class and be delivered punctually each day by the staff, about a 15 minute trip. Travelling solo, I also appreciated the high security of The Dusun. It is discreetly hidden off the main streets and full time guards man the resort 24/7.
Most of all, what I love about The Dusun is the authenticity of the beautiful Balinese staff. To be woken every morning, with the warm smiling faces and the kind loving spirit of the Balinese people, who took great pride in cooking breakfast in my villa and serving the BEST Balinese coffee, made me constantly realise that it is the beautiful Balinese, that make travelling to this incredible place such a happy experience. The smiles and care to ensure that your stay is relaxed and comfortable is completely genuine, it is a pleasure for them to always be of service.
The Dusun truly does feel like my home away from home when in Bali. There are certainly newer and more opulent villas available, but the size, location and beautiful staff make The Dusun a standout experience. Thank you I will be back again!

Room Tip: Villa 12 was perfect.
