Our group of 23 was here for a five day yoga retreat and would have gladly stayed longer if they had had space. Unique lodging in historic houses with antique and other amazing Indonesian furnishings, all spread out over a gorgeous landscaped property with beautiful central pool. You feel immersed in the atmosphere of Bali. Meals were excellent and quite...

We had a gorgeous stay at Desa Seni. Surrounded by beautifully kept tropical gardens, we really disconnected from the busyness of life for a week. Love the authenticity of this place. A lot of thought has gone into the 'houses' (rooms), decor, gardens, food, yoga spaces. I loved how the staff were friendly, warm and themselves, no uber nice, over...

This hotel is located in the middle of small patches of plantation of the same food offered in their restaurant. The rooms are actually small houses with antique decor really nice.

This resort is absolutely beautiful and it's not your typical resort. Every room or 'villa' is different. It's my understanding that each of these structures have been relocated from different parts of Indonesia and re-built in this resort, other typical Indonesian items have been added which gives this place a very unique and authentic atmosphere. They have a beautiful pool...

Hello Hakan, Thank you for letting us know. Yes, we travelled the archipelago collecting all the old homes that were not being used anymore and brought them to Bali, restored, renovated to todays comforts. Apologies for the music practice, we were getting ready for the biggest Balinese celebration, the new year, Nyepi. There is lots of excitement and anticipation around...

Having stayed here previously and preferring a more modern style accommodation (accommodation is in traditional Balinese huts but complete with Air Con etc), I always go back and spend a day here each visit to Bali. Their spa is lovely and organic food very nourishing and tasty. Cute gift shop and nice pool to laze around. I love their yoga...

Well I have seen this place over the years and stayed there, been there for events & my last trip there will be the last. The staff were rude, the prices were the most ridiculous ever for average quality food. They treated many of the musicians who played for their benefit show with little respect and offered little for their...
