Their philosophy is in line with all they have to offer. Friendly welcoming staff, beautiful gardens, peaceful calm feel to everything. The restaurant was yummy and ingredients freshly picked out their garden. A must visit in Canggu.

Matur Suksma! Thank you! The farmers, from planting the seeds for the veggies to the harvesting, no better reward for hard work than when people then love the flavors. Growing almost 80% of our own produce for the restaurant. Come pass through again and make sure you try on of our 5 to 6 yoga classes, or the spa, heaven.

This place was really quite breathtaking. It's so natural and everywhere you look there's something so beautiful. The staff were so incredibly lovely, I left my sunglasses by the pool and someone came and found them to return them to me, and then I had to pay in four different currencies, as they didn't accept Amex, and they could not...

Wonderful place and lovely people working there. I was there with a group for a yoga retreat I held and they where all delighted. Coming back with my kids in December to show them this beautiful place and then for a new retreat in September next year.

Dear Christina! Thank you! What a wonderful group of people! Retreats are always so wonderful as we get to see a group of people transform, learn and expand within a week. The relaxing atmosphere along with the staff, the guests, make Desa Seni a Sanctuary. Ideal for groups who want to better themselves! See you in December and September, exciting!!

Beautiful grounds. Organic veggies, tropical flora as far as the eye can see. Rustic eco-chic, with comfy beds, day-beds, terraces, privacy. We had a wide array of yoga classes to choose from - and a full moon musical event to top off our stay. Lounge about near the saltwater pool. Order food while you're there - Desa Seni salad is...

Amazing yoga studio and resort. The rooms are great and so are the yoga classes. They offer wonderful food, very healthy and at reasonable prices. You can pay single classes. It's good for beginners and for families

We booked this resort due to the Yoga classes that they offer. Arrived at the resort and were a bit disappointed with the room. It just feels old and with majority wooden style, it did not feel clean. Blankets and carpets in the rooms need to be replaced for sure. Bathroom felt dirty too (although perhaps not). It simply does...

Dear Alivia, Sometimes in life things get paired that are not quite the match. As an antique, refurbished, recycled traditional Indonesian Organic village, focused on nature and wellness, one must like the outdoor, rustic antique feel to truly enjoy our setting and our offerings. All of our buildings have been sourced from the archipelago of Indonesia as a part of...

This is very nice resort which only has 15 separate, detached villas surrounding a swimming pool. There is a nice little restaurant on site plus a spa, a yoga 'house' and a shop. It's pricey to stay but you get absolute top notch facilities and service. The only slight downside is that the resort is not close to anywhere, a...
