Tropical Oasis amongst the Seminyak Sophisticats”
Myself and my husband stayed at the Desamuda Village Hotel at the end of January. It was our first trip to Bali so we didn't know what to expect. We arrived late in the evening and the hotel kindly provided a free pick-up from the airport. They checked us in quickly and showed us to our room, which they had upgraded for free. They had upgraded us to one of the ground floor one bedroom apartments with a kitchenette and its own private pool. The room was wonderful with a four poster bed, free filtered water, airconditioning and fans. The bathroom was very clean and even had it's own outdoor shower (in addition to the separate bath and shower). It was cleaned daily to a high standard as expected. The pool was more like a plunge pool, but it was not overlooked and was fantastic for cooling down after a hot afternoon shopping. The hotel seemed almost empty so we had the main pool almost to ourselves. The gardens were maintained well and with two pools even if the hotel was full I think it would still be quiet. I had heard poor reviews about the breakfasts in Bali but even as a cooked breakfast lover I had no complaints about the breakfast at the hotel. If you are expecting a full 'American' style breakfast you may be a bit disappointed, but the choice of sausages, bacon, pancakes, noodles, eggs, fish fingers and potatoes, as well as the fresh fruit, baked goods and salad choices would satisfy most appetites. The service was generally excellent throughout the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. They gave us a taxi to the restaurants most evenings, although as many of them were within walking distance it was more to avoid the rain. The location is excellent. The hotel is 50m down a driveway off the road that connects Seminyak and Legian/Kuta. There is an abundance of shops within walking distance, and Kuta is only a 10min taxi ride away. Seminyak is more upmarket than Kuta and I think this hotel reflects that well.
Lovely hotel and excellent service”
It was a stupendous 3 day stay. The transfer from the airport to the Desamuda Village Hotel was well organised and the car was neat and comfortable. The check in formalities were done expeditiously by a very courteous crew who took the trouble to make us really feel welcome and perfectly at home. Next was the big sense of excitement that awaited us as we opened the door into perhaps one of the best designed villas for this standard.To say everything about this villa is excellent is somewhat a little bit of an understatement. From the big cosy bed with very neat and soft linen whose colour, allure and general constituency must have taxed the better part of a star artist, to the glamorous lounge juxtaposed to a pool into which runs a waterfall whose low thudded rumbles reminds one of the deepest engagements with mother nature and not to mention the beautiful garden with lovely flowers, the villa does exudes more than its share of romance. The cuisine at the hotel is good, the Friday supper special is a signature treat-here you get a chance to taste a variety of Indonesian dishes in one meal;awesome! The hotel staff was able to arrange tours and other services like massage and so on. I definitely recommend these, otherwise how would you call yourself a tourist in Bali
A tropical oasis in chaos”
We loved our stay at Desamuda. First time in Bali so we didn't know what to expect. The alley into the village looks a bit dodgey when you first go in but it hides a great tropical setting. We had a lovely villa right next to the main pool. Our kids spent most of the time in the pool. The 2nd pool next to the restaurant was green while we were there so stayed out of that. They were actively trying to get it right again though. The staff were so freindly & attentive. Australian hospitality staff should pay attention to how it is done!! Wasn't so keen on Seminyak - very busy & crowdebut when you were in Desamuda you wouldn't even know it was there. Very quiet & peaceful. Lovely tropical garden.One thing to note - we booked for 2 adults & 2 children & got 2 double beds. If your kids don't like sharing, it could be a problem. Food was a little bit hit & miss when it came to Western style. Breakfast was quite good. Little bit of variety. We stuck mainly to the omlettes made to order. Would definitely recommend Desamuda to first timers like us - access to shuttle, internet, restaurant, room service.
We enjoyed our stay there. It has premium location and easy to reach the heart of Seminyak. The room was fantastic and the extra little touches made it even more special such as fruit basket and filtered cooled water on tap not only that there were mosquito coils and spray in case you needed it since the living room and the main bathroom are outdoor. It was located close to shops and restaurants and anywhere else you wanted to go they organized a car to take you there with ease. Although being down a driveway off one of the main roads you could not hear any noise from the street and we were in one of the rooms closest to the front. The breakfast is a buffet and although there is not a lot on the buffet tables itself there is also a chef there cooking in front of you anything you ask for. Looking forward for the next stay at Desamuda Village Hotel again.
Very beautiful villa”
My stay at Desamuda Village Hotel was overall excellent. The money to value ratio is reasonable. I like the way that the living room is faced towards the swimming pool. With 2 floors and the spacious compartments, my family had a very comfortable stay. TVs' remote controls were kept nicely in their casings. Hairdryers were placed neatly with their wires wrapped around them. The bathroom was semi outdoored which gives a different experience to the living. Bedrooms were decorated with decent curtains. We could cook almost anything in the kitchen with their ever-ready stove and fridge. The only down side is probably that, there was no corkscrew in the kitchen cabinet. I bought a bottle of wine back to realize that I can't pull out the cork. The night shift officer on duty couldn't help much either as he wasn't familiar with the utensils' placement in the lobby's restaurant. Nevertheless, it was a pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to others. I'm also looking forward to my next stay at Desamuda Village Hotel again.
Nice tucked away well equipped villa”
this villa first caught our eye because of it's great value- especially for a pool villa. we wanted to experience the famous balianese feeling and looking villas and we believe that desamuda village nailed it. the villa was tucked away from the main road but easy to get to and in the middle of seminyak. tiled floor and air conditioning kept the place cool and comfortable. the pool was not very big, more like a pond size but they had two main shared pools that were able to satisfy our swimming requirements. the hotel thought of everything, a welcome drink on arrival as we checked in and the restaurant was open till late so we were able to get a bite to eat even at 10pm when we arrived. food was okay but there are many more amazing and delicious restaurants a short walk up the road. they had a filtered water cooler in our room that dispensed hot and cold water and mosquito coils, bug spray and everything they could think of tonmake our stay more comfortable. the only negative thing i can think of is that the shower was a bit weak. the outdoor shower was better than the indoor shower. the staff were genuine and polite but didn't get in your way or hassle you which was great. all in all i would recommend this place to my friends and family.
Small, intimate and personalized”
Very satisfied with the villa that we stayed in at Desamuda Village. Great location, in the heart of Seminyak. The staff are brilliant, beyond the standard service that I have experienced in many of other bigger hotels. Very personalized service in catering to our needs. My mother in law was sick, and they even made a traditional remedy to help her cough. Very pleasant stay indeed.. Topping all that, the restaurant serve delicious food. Being on F&B industry, I am impressed with how they put effort on their dishes. All Indonesian meals are very authentic, not only to Balinese flavour but from the best dishes from other province in Indonesia too. Thumbs up for the chef.
Slice of Heaven”
We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa (2 couples) it was perfect and we will stay only at the Desamuda from now on. Its location was great for us close to everything in seminyak except for the beach but we were not looking for that. The staff were excellent and very helpfull. They had a free shuttle service to surrounding areas. The beds were very comfortable that outdoor showers were great and the food was excellent. Its villa's are not impecably clean but clean enough and nothing to complaint about in fact after the Desamuda we went to Ubud and that Hotel (5star)was about the same. This hotel is perfect for those who want to relax but be able to walk out of the hotel and be right in the thick of it. It's like an oasis in the middle of choas and the gardens are just beautifulwe cant wait to go back!! Its old bali style was exactly what we were looking for.
Amazing villas, location and fantastic service”
A great stay at Desamuda! After their driver (a great guy) picked us up from the airport, we were upgraded to a deluxe pool villa. The villa was the best accommodation I have stayed in anywhere. It was very clean and all new. With a beautiful pool & outdoor shower, outdoor living areas (with couches & a plasma tv) and a separate enclosed bedroom with a huge comfortable bed. The villas are on a fun street for shopping and food, but at the end of a driveway, about 100m from the street so you cannot hear anything even from the lobby. The villas are set back even further so there is no sense you are close to all that Seminyak offers. A free breakfast was good to start the day (maybe a good coffee machine would go down well though :). The staff were always friendly and would book taxis, the free shuttle or anything you needed with a smile. We would definitely go back to Desamuda and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Seminyak. Good job Desamuda Villas!
10 Days in Bali”
We stayed at Desamuda village for 10 nights with our two children aged 8 & 14. The staff were extremely helpful, right from our pick-up at the airport to our checkout. We had booked at 2 bedroom villa but were accomodated in a three bedroom with one of the rooms locked off. It was fantastic. Private pool meant the kids could go swimming from the minute they awoke. Central location in Seminyak was fabulous. The girls loved the daily buffet breakfast and the restraunt food was also excellent. Would recommend this resort highly.
Second stay & definitely not our last!”
this is our second stay at desamuda village & again we are impressed by the friendliness & professionalism of the staff & cleanliness & comfort of the villas. privacy & quiet surrounds of the pool villas makes for a most relaxing holiday. the two communal pools are also great for a change if you feel like socialising with/meeting other guests. centrally located to most of seminyak's boutiques & eating places or only a short/cheap taxi ride from those that are a bit further- if you book an hr in advance the hotel shuttle can even drop you off! room service food is nice & fairly reasonably priced.
Perfect location, staff just wonderful, clean.”
our stay at desamuda village hotel was excellent. the beautiful villa's are gorgeous and done in balinese style with outdoor lounge with large flat screen tv, outdoor kitchen and large fridge. the bedroom also had a flat screen tv, safe, mosquito net, air-con and was very comfortable. the staff are probably the best part of desamuda. they offer complimentary airport transfers. location is walking distance to some wonderful restaurants and boutique shops. loved it!!
Aussies at Desamuda”
We absolutely loved the Desamuda Village Hotel. Our villa was beautiful, heaps of space, huge bathroom with two showers (one in and one outside), beautiful bedroom and having your own plunge pool was fantastic. The food was good, ordering from room service was cheap and good food. The breakfast was ordinary (definitely didn't like the beef bacon). All in all though, we will be going back again, it was fantastic. Robyn from Mandurah, WA
My stay at Desamuda Village Hotel”
We stayed in Desamuda Village Hotel for 10 days and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the one bedroom villa. Our Accomadation was very good the pool was spotless cleaned every day.It is a very romantic tranquill atmosphere.Staff were very helpfull and friendly. Location is close to really good shopping and Restaurants in Seminyak. Definitely would stay here again really enjoyed our stay +++++
We've been to Bali heaps of times and each time we stay somewhere new. However, next time we go back we will definately be staying at Desamuda again! We had a 1 bedroom pool villa and it was absolutely beautiful. Desamuda has all of the up-sides of staying at a hotel (room service, housecleaning, restaurant) but with the feel and privacy of villa accommodation. All of the living areas are outside, very modern and extremely clean. The bedroom is the only indoor part of the villa and your bed gets turned down by the staff each afternoon, they pull the insect nets around your bed and spray the room for any stray mozzies. The beds are huge and firm but comfy and the sheets must be about 3000 thread count because they are the softest sheets I have ever slept in! Housekeeping come around every morning and do a wonderful job at cleaning, and you also get fresh towels twice a day which is wonderful! The plunge pool is perfect for dipping in and out but the tiles can get a little splippery once they are wet so you do need to watch yourself. The gardens and grounds are beautifully maintained and the staff and reception team are great. We checked in at midnight but nothing was too much trouble, even at that time.
Lovely hotel with friendly service”
even though the driver late in airport pick-up also delay in handing the room upon our arrival, but the staff service are still satisfied. they were greeting in smile everytime we met them. it made us feel comfortable. love the cozy room as it really give us a relax trip in bali. the villa is suitable for couple for honeymoon or family who bring kids along. however, the breakfast is a bit disappointed as it did not have much more variety and it did not go to your villa and cook for you. maybe they can improve on this area. desamuda near to the "boutique street" which full of a lot of boutiques selling designed clothes. people who love shopping will love it. although it quite far from the beach (walking distance around 20 mins), but it was nice to walk along seminyak. along the journey to beach, you will pass by plenty of restaurant, boutiques, club and the most important, massage and spa. spa in seminyak will be expensive than kuta area but i would say the quality and services are better than in kuta area. it's worth having a nice and relax spa in seminyak. if i will travel again in bali, desamuda will be my first choice to stay.
I did make my reservation for a 1 Bed room, pool vela but when I checked in they gave me 3 Bed room, pool vela with Jacuzzi as a gift from them to us for our honeymoon without any extra charge. Desamuda village is located in calm place away from noisiness and I will stay in it every time I go to Bali and I will recommended this place to all my friend's.
Fantastic service from the word go”
we could not fault this accommodation, the staff were fantastic, so friendly and could not do enough for us. the accommodation was superb, great layout and super clean with everything we needed in an excellent location close to everything. despite being in a very busy part of seminyak the villa was extremely quiet and a great place to return after long days of sightseeing. breakfast was good, great range of western and asian selections, cocktails and food were well priced and yummy and the in-room spa service was excellent and well priced. would highly recommend desamuda to anyone.
Good location, good service and good value.”
The room is very comfortable, clean and tidied by chambermaids everyday of our stay. However, we felt the living area could do with an air-con or at least a fan as it gets very warm even on some nights. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly and there are security personnel stationed at the entrance throughout the day. Hotel also provides free shuttle service to the airport. The location is great and good restaurants like Warung Made, Cafe Moka, Mannekepis Bistro from the hotel. There are also 2 mini-marts nearby. All in all, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much and will definitely stay at Desamuda Village again on our future trips to Bali.
A good traditional Balinese Hoel”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Desamuda Village. Whilst it is quite old and some would say needs a refurbishment in some areas. I personally believe that this provides a more enjoyable traditional stay than some of the more modern hotels. We went back a second time during our stay and I would not hesitate to recommend the one bedroom suites that we had. Excellent location with regards to shopping.
