“Nice and Quiet”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Stayed 7 nights in the one bedroom pool villa, the air conditioning was icy cold which made sleeping on the humid nights much easier and the pool was refreshing after walking around for most of the day.

Restaurant was good fast and efficient.

This is a great place to stay and want to come back again.

I spent one week with my husband at villa 12.
I only have good things to say ,from the first moment to the end of our holidays .
They picked us from the airport,and driver Kadek was helpful and efficient,with
all the information he gave us about the island .Check in was pleasant and
quick .
Our villa was big ,beautiful decorated ,and clean .The kitchen was equipped
with everything we need it.
The breakfast was very good and they had every day something new ,Wi-fi
in room was ok .
Our bed with the mosquito net was very beautiful,the staff at the reception
smiling and helpful,and the restaurant also.
Swimming pool was clean and we used it every day.
The Seminyak area is not so crowded like Kuta or Legian ,this was the
reason we choose the area .
Our stay at the hotel was relaxing ,comfortable ,and we are looking
already to go back .
I strongly recommend this hotel for your stay.

Room Tip: we loved villa 12

Everything at Desamuda was perfect from start to finish. After arrival down a questionable alley all pre check in fears are alleviated but a very warm welcome by the fantastic staff at this resort.
The rooms where clean and comfortable with all the mod' con's, large bathrooms and lovely private pools. Breakfast varied each day, combining continental and Asian items on the buffet with a chef on hand to prepare fresh eggs to your preference. All in all I would fully recommend this family resort.

We booked a 20 night stay in a 2 bedroom pool villa as our family holiday and although this was our 6th trip to Bali I was a little anxious as this was the 1st time we planned to stay in a Villa, needless to say Desamuda did not disappoint!! Loved the outdoor shower but as it did rain quite a bit over night during our stay it wasn’t practical and there were massive puddles all over the floor soaking our towels etc, this was also the case in the open plan kitchen.
We booked via Cantik Bali Villas who coudn’t do enough to help! We got an amazing deal which we could not resist.
The complementary pick up & drop off to & from the airport was extremely handy and as our son was leaving 10 days before we were leaving due to work commitments Cantik bali villas also organised for complementary drop off for him to the airport.
I have to mention some amazing staff that went over and beyond the call of duty and I’m happy to call them my new friends. Dollar made us the most amazing omelettes for breakfast daily! Made was extremely friendly and showed my daughter his talent in fruit carving and gave her a quick tutorial, Suta from house-keeping was always helping us in anything we required, Kadek was always willing to assist in getting us to our daily shopping trips via the free shuttle service that the villa offers (make sure you book this well in advance), another special callout to another of their amazing staff members Herry. I have to say that all the staff at Desamuda village were always extremely helpful and friendly, they organised a beautiful cake for my husband as his b'day was during our holiday! We definitely look forward to catching up with them again on our next Bali trip.
There is a great little massage & spa place close to Desamuda village that everyone must try, if you walk out to the street and turn right, it’s about 200metre’s down the road on the left ( right next to the guardian pharmacy) we had some amaizing treatments here daily at amazingly affordable prices. The therapist Made, Putri and Komang are very friendly and are amazing at what they do.
The beach is a little bit of a walk so we mainly used our private pool and also the main pool on a couple of occasions, the main pool could do with a swim up bar.
The villa is located in a great spot in Seminyak and there are heaps of café’s, restaurants and shopping just outside the villa. And its nice and quiet at the end of the day when you come back from the hustle and bustle of kuta and the surrounding areas.

Our first impression was that we had entered a tropical oasis. This is not a contemporary hotel, which is why we booked it. It has a Balinese feel. Loved the private pool, and extremely friendly staff who went beyond the call of duty. My daughter and I were even invited to have our make up done complete with traditional dress one evening. It was a fantastic experience, and very memorable for our 11 year old daughter. When my husband and son came down to dinner, they too were dressed in traditional balinese style. Wonderful night and a highlight of our trip. Breakfast isnt as elaborate as more western hotels, but we expected that. The staff were extremely friendly and even taught my daughter how to cook omelettes - as thats what the 2 of us ate most days. Another example of them going out of their way for us. In particular, I would like to thank Komang and Dewi in the restaurant, and one of the chefs who regretful I cant think of his name. We found the complex to be clean and the gardens well manicured. We werent told until arrival that our children would need to share a King bed, fortunately they were so excited with the private pool and a 2 story villa that they didnt mind.

Room Tip: We were given villa no 13 (I think) which was a 2 story, 2 bedroom villa with private pool, opposite...

We stayed at Desamuda Village for 4 nights from 27 to 31st Jan 2013. We researched a lot before going there and finally choose Desamuda Village as we were looking to stay in a Villa only with private pool and we were so happy to choose Desamuda. We booked directly with them and it worked well.

While check-in we were upgraded to Two Bedroom Villa while one Bedroom was locked. Pool, kitchen, Living Room, Bedroom all were amazing. We had lot of fun in private pool. Desamuda is located in Seminyak which is most upside area in Bali and to surprise us the best Indian restaurant chain of Bali, Queens was walking distance from here. Though breakfast spread was not that great, reception looks bit old, Entrance was not impressive still we had a memorable stay on our first vacation in Bali. Staff is very courteous and quiet helpful. They let you know many things favorable for tourists.

We will definitely stay here again whenever visit Bali again and definetly recommend Desamuda to other travelers.

It was a memorable stay.

Upon arrival, the reception area is nothing special and somewhat dated. The reception area common grounds need maintenance - grass is long & overgrown on the stone path. We checked into a one bedroom villa which was ok. I'm not a fan of exposed toilets or any bathroom facility for that matter. Not sure how you have friends over for a gathering when your loo is exposed. The villa was ok, it also is a little dated and could do with a good clean. Our kitchen had grime on the kitchen cupboards, bench top and fridge. The tiled flooring had dried dog paw marks on it - hence why I wore flip flops the entire time. The morning buffet layout is old and archaic. Fruit, milk and butter stored away in a corner store display counter, which you have to ask for every time and the overall feel is that the area could do with a good scrub. I suggest eating only cooked food or food cooked on the spot eg. Omelettes and pancakes.

On the upside the location is good for shopaholics and some good local eateries.

I'm sure there are better places that give you more bang for your buck!!! Or at least somewhere that is cleaned more thoroughly.
