The Dusun Villas Bali: an oasis in the heart of Seminyak

The Dusun Villas Bali is your own little private oasis in the heart of Seminyak, an up and coming trendy area of Bali. We stayed here during our travels in Indonesia in September 2015 and loved it.

The Dusun is a boutique village-style hotel with 15 stunning Balinese style villas, each with a private swimming pool and large garden space. It is located around 100m from Petitenget Beach and the gay friendly beach, Cantina.


Seminyak is a beach resort area in Southwest Bali where all the luxury villas, 5* hotels, spas, high end restaurants and bars are based. It is also regarded as the boutique shopping capital of the island.

We stayed in a beautiful 3 bedrooms villa set in a lush tropical garden, spread across two pavilions on a sprawling 650m² of land that includes a 12 metres swimming pool.

Each villa is a virtual sanctuary with expansive grounds, swimming pool, generous living space and a fully equipped kitchen to make you feel completely at home.

The style of the Dusun Villas Bali blends modern elements with traditional Balinese style. For example you will notice the distinct thatched roofs, beautiful stone carvings, fine sandstone materials, antique batik art pieces and soft rounded structural lines across the property.

In contrast to its traditional charm, the Dusun Villas Bali boasts modern facilities such as wireless broadband internet, a stereo system with DVD player and flat panel TV in each bedroom with over 40 channels. True paradise for the high standards of a Frenchman.

We stayed in one of the bedrooms in the main pavilion. Our bedroom had a grand four poster bed, air conditioning, TV and incredibly large beautifully decorated bathroom.

Every villa has its own fully equipped kitchen where a private chef prepares your breakfast. The breakfast is not restricted to times and can be served at any hour of the day – ideal if you've been out all night partying and want a lie in.
