Reviewed 5 May 2012

It is our first time in Bali and we are having great time. One of the main reasons that made our stay so wonderful was because of Ulin Villa. It is definitely a wonderful and beautiful place to stay.

The layout of the villa, landscaping, garden, bedroom, living hall, bathroom, kitchen and the large swimming pool are all that made up this wonderful villa. Furthermore, the decks by the pool, where we can lie down at night and look at the star twinkle in the sky. It is so romantic and yet relaxing.

The Ulin Villa is also strategically located, while being quiet, serene, windy and peaceful; it is not too far away from the busy Oberoi Street, which is just within walking distance (about 2-3 minutes). And it is also not too far away from the beach, where you can take the drop-off service from Ulin Villa to the beach (which take 5 minutes only) to enjoy the sunset and dine beside the beach. It is our first time to dine by the beach and it is so nice. Thanks for the arrangement made by Ulin Villa.

There is another thing which we would like to compliment Ulin Villa for their attention to detail. On our arrival at the Villa they gave us a piece of welcome letter from the Manager, Wayan, which greeted us. Thank you for your greeting. Upon that they also provide us another piece of paper that contain important information such as a map of surrounding area, list of things to be cautious and careful when we are exchanging currency, what to take note when we are visiting Bali interesting places, the airport tax and more. We found this piece of information is so useful especially for our first time in Bali.

Overall, Ulin Villa is a wonderful place to stay. Hope they can continue to provide such excellent service and continue to improve from great to become GREATER so that everyone that visit Bali, will have unforgettable trip that filled with happy memory.

Dear “cxchin”

We are honored that you have chosen us for your first time visit to Bali and we were delighted to read that you were having a great time and fabulous stay with us. The One Bedroom Villa is all about space, romance and privacy. Our location is one of the best, just steps away from the “eat street” where an array of restaurants and funky shops are located. I am also very delighted to hear that you love the genuine service presented by our team members during your stay. I believe you will come again to Bali for your second, third and so. See you again in Bali and we look forward to welcoming you in the future.

Warmest regards,

Wayan Winawan

My daughters and I have just returned home from staying five nights at Ulin Villas. We are unable to think of a single negative but the positives are endless. From the moment our lovely driver picked us up at the airport and handed us icy cold flannels to the gorgeous receptionists who greeted us on arrival the magic continued. Fabulous breakfasts prepared in our villa by happy chefs with great flair to the gardeners and security not forgetting great housekeeping staff - the list is endless. Certainly our best and most relaxing holiday ever. Our BBQ was a delight and the ever refilling fridge full of soft drinks and beer - oh so nice. I could go on and on. Must mention the Manager Wayan should take a bow. I lived in Bali for twelve years but the service at Ulin Villas surpassed anything I experienced during that time. To the people complaining for being charged five dollars for a broken glass - get real and remember your incredible breakfasts/afternoon tea/great BBQ and free mini bar and smiling staff who found nothing was too much trouble. Still there is always someone who will complain but not US! We have decided you will always be our number one and cannot wait to see you all again.

As I sit by my pool whilst breakfast is being prepared beside me I can't quite believe the amazing holiday we are having!
We are in a 2 bedroom villa and the pool is a perfect size (looks smaller in the photos) the bedrooms and bathroome too are beautiful and the staff are AMAZING!
Last night we had the bbq dinner in villa. They came and decorated all the dining area and garden with lights and flowers as well as hanging fronds from the roof. The bbq was delicious. An abundance of sates (enough for 5 with leftovers even though for 4) salad, soup and then the staff all came in singing Happy Birthday with a scrummy black forest cake for me!
There is nothing that is too much trouble, need some money change....voila a car to the money changer, need a top cleaned for tonight......done in a couple of hours. We have had cars to all our restaurants and smiles when we came "home"
You will not be dissapointed if you stay here, Ive stayed at a lot of other villas in Seminyak which charge more withourpt anywhere near as much service.
Beautiful, we will be back soon.

Room Tip: We are 3 ladies in a 2 bedroom, they have twin beds in one room.

These villas are beautiful, everthing was clean, comfortable and easy walking to everthing. The staff are all excellent and always smiling, and will make you stay very pleasent. My husband and I used the spa everday having different treatments and they were amazing, just what we needed. The location is great, restaurants are only a stones throw away, as are all the boutiques. If you are in need of a relaxing stay i would reccomend these villas to anyone.

Beautiful villa inside and out. The Ulin VIllas was magical from the moment we arrived at the property. Very friendly and polite staff who were very attentive but not intrusive. The villa is well laid out with a lovely lounge area and TV inside, seperate bedroom and private outdoor garden bathroom is great as the basin and dressing area are inside in the AC adjacent to the shower, bath and WC which is outside so you don't get hot getting ready. The pool is big especially for 2 people and the outdoor kitchen/al fresco area is lovely. Each morning the breakfast was prepared and served in the outdoor dining area and it was always tasty. The dinner BBQ is a lovely experience and a must for those nights you don't want to venture out. The location was also good it was quiet but within 2 mins of the main strip of restaurants in Seminyak like Ultimo, Khaima (great Morrocan) and Cafe Bali - all recommended and close. Would highly recommend for a luxury getaway and/or honeymoon.

Beautiful Villa, Garden and Pool in an excellent location, 10 min walking distance to Ku De Ta' Beach. Very good service: they would assist with anything very promptly and politely. Good massage, highly recommended. The only thing we suggest to improve is their Breakfast. We would expect more choices (they do have limited choices for "sweet" options but we must say that their banana and pineapple pancakes were pretty good!), and better quality of food (pancakes excluded!). We had the most amazing breakfast at Kayumanis Nusa Dua the past 2 years, and this, we must say, set our expectation for The Ulin Villa's breakfast very high! Overall we had a great stay in a beautiful setting and in the most convenient location to enjoy the best Bali restaurants, bars and designer shops!

Thank you Ulin Villas for a great holiday.

Nothing was too much trouble and the assistance the team provided booking our beauty treatments, restaurants and day visits for our group of 6 was amazing. We changed our plans so so often, but throughout it all you were patient and accommodating.

The villa was kept so clean and it was maintained so well. Although this service was very discrete, we never saw it actually happening, somehow you managed to do it when we were out and about so as not to interrupt out time in the villa.

The complementary drop off service around Seminyak was great and made things so much easier getting to and from appointments.

Thanks again for a beautiful holiday surrounded by friendly people and a special mention to Weira who was particularly helpful and friendly.

I would definitely recommend this Villa for people visiting Bali, Seminyak for the first time as it is centrally located, good food and water supplies, the staff are helpful and the drop off service easing the burden of catching cabs and navigating your way around.
