Just finished a week in bali staying at Ulin Villas with 2 girl friends and love love loved it!! The staff were amazing so accommodating, friendly and tried so hard to make it a great experience. Location excellent, food delicious, they cooked us breakfast in our villa every morning and the room service was brilliant! Our own private pool was glorious and they lit candles every night around, so magical! Also provided a complimentary bbq - 3 courses and decorated our villa!! We also took advantage of the spa - completely worth the money (we ended up there almost every 2nd day), the ladies had magic hands and made the whole experience so relaxing!!
Would highly highly reccommend Ulin Villas, want to back tomorrow!! In fact really hoping to go again next year!

Our first time to Bali, hit by a plethora of villa choices, pored through multiple villa websites & tripadvisor reviews before finally landing on Ulin. Perfect experience and no regrets.

With Mr Winawan & team, the service is consistently prompt, friendly & attentive and my 2 kids (aged 4yrs & 20 months) love them.

The Ulin experience begins immediately after you exit the airport arrival hall. After seating you in the Ulin vehicle, the driver will hand you a cold towel & water to freshen up. Nice touch.

Upon entering the villa, we were wowed. They will first serve you a welcome drink before bringing you on a tour around the villa; lovely place. The living area is also indoors & air-conditioned, which is a plus point for us as you don't really want the mozzies to be attacking. Kids love the private pool (1.25 m to 1.5m) and because the living area is kept indoors, once those doors are closed, you get the peace of mind that kids are not hovering dangerously unsupervised around the pool. Bath facilities are comprehensive, with both the options of standing shower and bath tub (my girl looks forward to the bubble bath times).

The interior of the villa looks new & well-maintained. Mozzies are also not really an issue here. Housekeeping comes by twice a day; villa make-up in the day & turndown in the evening. Super cheerful & efficient team.

We used the villa spa services on 2 days. You have the option of having it done in the spa room or in your villa (at the pool deck), and I would suggest opting for the spa room. Enjoying the massage in the comfort of the air-conditioned spa room sure beats sweating it out at the pool deck.

Breakfast is an experience. You have a choice of 15 types of breakfasts and the chef will come by every morning and prepare it in the villa. Eggs benedict & classic are some of their best. Room dinning menu is also pretty comprehensive and reasonably priced, with choices ranging from Indonesian fare, Chinese to Western. I would recommend their Indonesian fare (e.g. nasi goreng), while their pizzas can be much improved (crusts are too hard).

Ulin is also within walking distance from the good eateries. Ultimo is less than 5 mins walk from the Villa, Seminyak Square is about 10 mins walk away (Kafe Bateau is a must-try) while Ku De Ta is about 15 mins walk away.

Our stay at Ulin was so fantastic that my 4-year old was reluctant to leave.
Thumbs-up, and we will be back.

Terima Kasih :)

After much research and review of the other villas and boutique hotels in Semiyak I settled on the Ulin villa. I was very happy we did. Everything was as I expected it to be , just a described by others. Our trip was magical start to finish. Great location, convient to anything you may need, although we didnt leave often for anything. Spent wonderful days at Ku De Ta and steamy sexy nights at the villa. Just one pointer Ulin, if the villa is rockin..dont come knockin! ..also..dont leave..then call..then come back and knock again! jeez!! Assume we guests are busy and happy and the bed no doubt doesnt need a turn down for the night ;o).

Dear “wanderlust4ever71”

I wish to sincerely thank you for taking your valued time to share your review. I am delighted to read that you had a magical stay and to know your holiday was just what you expected to be. Please accept our most sincere apologies for the “turn-down service” on one evening that was slightly not meeting your individual expectation. Our housekeeping service is performed twice daily, one time in the morning and next on the evening. All villas are fitted with “privacy sign” where we will not ring or knock the villa door when the sign is up. Once again thank you very much for your suggestions and we are very happy to inform you that we have been applying new standard of turn down service which will ensure maximum privacy even if the privacy sign is not up. Our aim is to deliver a truly memorable experience with genuine commitment to service and to ensure our guest make the most out of each stay. We are excited and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Warmest regards,

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon at Ulin Villas. It was so peaceful and private! We loved our private pool, breakfasts cooked in our villa (but in our outdoor kitchen so that we could enjoy privacy inside the villa while they cooked), AMAZING service, extremely friendly staff, and just about everything else!
Fantastic time! We highly recommend it!

Room Tip: You just can't go wrong here. I can't think of how a different villa would have been any bet...

enter the narrpw road next to the ultımo restaurant in Oberoi street and 25 meters later on your left you will see the Ulin Villas .
We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa , I think it is the best acommodation and location that you can find around Seminyak area for that price.
Staff were friendly as usual ,Rooms were clean and well designed ,
Very nice pool , Internet connection is the only problem , too slow better not even try , Just go out to some caffe shop or restaurant in Oberoi street where is free wi-fi,
otherwise it is the perfect place o stay for groups of 6-7 people travelling together
I didn't see the 1 and 2 bedroom villas so no comment about them.

Dear “ERTUG777”

I am very happy to read your review and found that you voted us as one of the best accommodation of our kind in Seminyak. Thank you also for your high credit over the friendliness of our staffs, the villa and of course its own private pool. We sincerely appreciate your comments on the internet connection that was slow during your stay. I will investigate the case and make a report to our provider as it was not what we normally have where in fact we have done a huge refurbishment for the internet connection early this year. Once again thank you very much for your comments so that we may persistently increase our standard of service for your next visit and for other guests. Look forward to seeing you again on your future Bali vacation.

As an ex travel agent and widely travelled, I did a lot of research for our 1st anniversary/honeymoon and couldn’t have been happier with my choice.
Villa Ulin and the staff there looked after us so well and made us feel like Royalty, they couldn’t do enough to make sure our holiday was exceptional and it was with genuine sincerity not the false politeness you sometimes get.
From the cool towels and water on arrival to the cuddles and tears when we left it was exceptional and the little touches really made us feel so special.....I could list over 10 staff who were exceptional but Wira you were a real star and made us feel like we were in our own albeit luxurious home.
My husband usually gets bored after a few days just relaxing but he was the most laid back I have ever seen him on holiday and loved just staying around the villa pool with a cold bintang.
We spoke to a few other couples who were staying in other villas and they didn’t have half the little extras that we did and seems likes we really did pick the best villa in town.
Thank you to everyone for all that you did, the flowers, wine and chocolate cake were so appreciated.
We will be back as soon as we can xx
