I still cannot get over the perfection of our stay at Selera Dunia. The pictures and reviews had me beyond excited to be in Saba and at Selera Dunia and my expectations were wildly exceeded. From the room and THAT VIEW to your hosts Hemmie and Yenny we had the most enjoyable stay! Note1: To get THAT VIEW you will be up the side of a mountain which we walked. If you are not given to walking that much, there are taxis or rent a car. Note2: If you are a solo traveler, Saba in general is very safe. Your hosts at Selera Dunia are very congenial and any chat with Hemmie is wonderful. We sat out on the community deck, looking out on Mount Scenery, and talked life with him for about an hour. Very enjoyable.
Hemmie and Jenny are the perfect hosts for the perfect location. From a home-cooked Indonesian meal, to hand-crafted clothing and gifts, customized breakfasts, friendly car lifts to and from the town this is our new "permanent vacation home". Hemmie and Jenny are compassionate, enthusiastic, knowledgable and care about the humanity of their guests. Thank you for your friendship and hospitality. Ajay and Joan
What a wonderful stay in a beautiful place with the friendliest host. Saba is such a breathtakingly lovely place....with views through Windwardside and all the way to the airport. Loved hearing Percy's conch blowing . Big spacious room and bed, breezes all day long through the room, and a delicious breakfast served in our room. Thank you Jenny, loved our stay. Luke and Debby
My daughter and i stayed there for 4 nights, Best place by far to stay in Saba, in windward, and close to all amenities, Hemmie knows everybody and folks has huge respect for him Place is in top of hill, so all rooms has huge balcony with -perfect view to mount scenery, Windward and Airport(you can see landing and take off) We stayed in Indonesian room which is decorated nicely, it is a big room, well-furnished and has everything you need Shared area also well designed and beautiful Hemmie is going beyond for his guests, I don’t want to go in detail to what he did for us to not to create expectation for you but he is very friendly and pass his honest opinion and make sure you enjoying your stay Hamid
Selena Dunia is tucked away yet close to the windward action. My husband and I loved it here. We were delighted to be welcomed by Hemmie who is an excellent host. He was cheerful, informative and pleasantly assisted in every capacity. It is a treat to not have to venture out in search of breakfast and instead be served at your desired time. The room is especially spacious (space to do yoga for two) and unique. It is terrific to be able to walk away, doors unlocked and sleep unharassed by insects with the large French doors open. We felt like we were in paradise and smiled like giddy children to wake up and watch the clouds go by, hiding and then revealing the beauty of Mount Scenery and views of the village below. All in all, I know where I would be staying if I return to Saba. Thanks, Hemmie! You are wonderful.
Room was very quant... with an awesome view of the village below. Heard the conch go off at 6am in the morning for the village to start getting up. a place where time stands still... Can walk to the sites from the hotel. The owners are very nice and will help in at way to make your stay nice. They know everyone on the small island. Had a very nice quiet over night stay.
Okay, there isn't much of a "crowd" in Saba, but Selera Dunia is quiet and atop a hill that overlooks the sea and the shortest commercial air strip in the world. We did overhear from other visitors that stayed at different hotels down in town on the Windward Side say that there were noisy guests and commotion, whereas we had nothing but breeze. There is no air conditioning (but this is true for 99% of Saba) and with the ceiling fans and doors open it was cool, with no insects. There are no locks on the doors, but one is available if you want to use it. I am pretty wary and not fond of leaving things unlocked, but I never felt as though my things were at risk. Hemmie is typically there throughout most of the day. He did a wonderful job at accommodating our needs and brought breakfast every day at a time we could choose. He does a lovely job at maintaining the property and we will definitely pay him a visit on our next trip to Saba!
Spent 6 nights at this hotel, what a wonderful location. We were very impressed with the warmth and friendliness of the hosts Hemmie and Jenny. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated with a comfortable bed, large bathroom and excellent internet. Jenny served us breakfast everyday which was tasty but her smile and cheery "Good Morning" started our day perfectly! We didn't rent a car but walked everywhere or used the plentiful taxis. We would highly recommend this hotel.
It was by unconscious competence I came to this hotel; it turned out to be right around the corner from the friends I was visiting on Saba. It was one of the best hotel experiences of my life and I've seen a lot of hotels in my life. Decorated with art brought back by the owners from Indonesia, my huge room was a delight. Breakfast was brought to me every morning, promptly, and was tremendous. The view from my balcony was marvelous. I felt at home the moment I walked in, felt totally safe and never locked my doors at night. It was a great place to unwind, read, write, think... It was a beautiful, restful haven at a great price. Hemmie, who, with his wife, owns Selera Dunia, was a delightful host. He felt more like a friend.
Top-notch experience from the moment we arrived. The hotel's location offered breathtaking views, and the room exceeded our expectations with it's beautifully executed Indonesian theme. But most memorable of all were the owners, Hemmie and Yenny, who made us feel right at home. They truly went out of their way to make our stay on Saba, a beautiful experience. We also enjoyed the daily in-room breakfast and the incredibly spacious room and bathroom. We are already making plans to go back.
