“Relax in Privacy”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We were looking for something very private with all conveniences plus luxury, Ulin Villas offered all this and more. The villas were perfectly located close to excellent restaurants, coffee shops and boutique shops. The staff were almost invisible (in a nice way), but close by and attentive when required. We really can't speak more highly of our time there, everything was just perfect. Thanks so much and we'll definitely be back, soon we hope!!

Room Tip: We were in Villa 9 it was great, very quite. But I am sure all villas are the same.

We stayed 6 nights in November 2013 in a one bedroom villa. After a long, difficult year it was the perfect place to do some R&R. From the pick up from the airport to the delivery back there everything went like clockwork. Staff were excellent and the so was the villa. The breakfasts were very good but could be quite large if you ordered the lot and we scaled them back over the period to minimise the damage to our waistlines. Basically we went to Bali to rest and that was what we did most of the time - except for trying the restaurants and the bars and the shopping.
The gardens were immaculate as was the pool which proved a godsend on the very hot days.

Room Tip: Do not get your rupiah when you get to the airport - charges there are very high. Also when you do...

We recently spent 5 nights at the Ulin Villas on our honeymoon and had a fantastic time! Every detail was taken care of down to the smallest consideration. When we landed in Bali the Ulin had arranged transportation to bring us back to the villas. They arranged to have us checked in in our villa which was much appreciated after the 20+ hour trip. The entire stay was fantastic, but some highlights were:
- Any time of day drop-off shuttle service
- Breakfast was made in the villa and served pool side. The menu was extensive and delicious
- The front desk recommended and made all dinner reservations for us
- Cleaning and turn down service was great. Every night new mosquito coils were lit and lanterns were placed around the pool.
- The spa service pool-side in the villa is great. Our welcome foot massage was a real treat!

As with any stay, there were only two things that weren't "Perfect"
- The hotel doesn't change money, yet they up charge you on the exchange rate when converting from your quoted price (USD) to Rupiah. It was insignificant, but something that stuck out.
- The bathrooms are outside, which is great for the shower and bath, but not so much for the toilet given the Bali heat.

All in all, this hotel was amazing, everyone was so friendly and helpful. I would return in a second and have already recommended it to many friends! Thank you for a great stay!

We loved our entire trip, to being picked up at the airport to being greeted by Wira at the front desk. As soon as we stepped in our Villa it was just beautiful and how it looks in the pictures. It is in the perfect position to walk to so many restaurants and bars.
To the fantastic breakfasts that were cooked to the bbq, the staff are friendly but also genuine and can tell they are happy to be working there. Nothing was a problem at all.
Lots of amazing vegetarian options were available.
We look forward to returning in 2014. Thank you very much for making Ulin Villas a place we want to visit all the time!

First of all, sincerest thanks to Wira and staff for a most memorable time. When we thought we lost an item during check-out, the staff were patient and well-mannered in helping us look for it in the most professional way. They were so confident that none of their staff had taken it. In the end they were proven right and I humbly apologized for the confusion.

The beautiful villa and private pool had been described and I attest to that. The in room BBQ was beautifully done. Staff came to toss flowers in the garden and decorate the dining pavillion. Nice touch!

The dark quiet street one had to walk through from the main road to get to the villa was a concern at night. We just walked briskly. Despite the villa's best efforts, the Balinese mosquitoes could not be defeated so take all precautions you had to.
Overall, still a recommendation.

From the moment we arrived, till our departure by personal driver to the airport, all the staff at Ulin villas were just delightful, genuine and thoroughly professional. Combine this level of service with the spacious, beautifully presented villas along with the attention to detail, and we wished we could have stayed longer.

Many examples could be provided, but one highlight was staff arriving close to sunset at our villa, lighting poolside candles, placing mosquito coils in handcrafted pottery in garden area
(not that we noticed any bugs really at all) and switching on all the mood lighting around the whole villa and suddenly the place was transformed. Efficient and discreet, and always with a courteous smile or greeting.

Then there was the bed, linen and pillows, best sleep on our holiday!

The food....the list goes on. Will definitely be recommending The Ulin Villas and Spa to friends and family. The location is only 100m from one the busiest streets in Seminyak, but you would never have known, it was so quiet and peaceful.

My partner just told me to mention the Spa, she just loved the two hour package she chose, and very good value for money.
