“Gorgeous setting, breathtaking views”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

This is an amazing property! It has spectacular views, being on a small cliff. It is well suited for family reunions and celebrations because there are self contained units/villas with a pool, rooms, lawn, kitchen staff, common living area etc. the pools are all infinity pools almost atbthe edge of the cliff, which makes it a unique experience! The beach is accessed by a combination of steep steps and a gondola like device. There is a cafe and bar (called Finns) down at the beach that also rents snorkels and kayaks. The beach is more or less private so is cleaner and nicer than any of the other beaches in Seminyak etc. However, if you prefer the activity and energy of cities, this is not the place for you. We have been to Bali before and we think Seminyak is the best area if you want a good beach (with decent waves) and good restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Although Semara villas in Uluwattu is gorgeous (on a cliff, great views, uncrowded beach) it can be isolated since it is a 35-45 minute drive to shopping, restaurants etc. It's perfect if you have friends and family so you provide your own party and energy every night!

Room Tip: Ask for a room from where you can see the ocean. Not all rooms have that feature.

We recently stayed in Villa Jamadara. This was by far the best villa i have ever stayed at. The service was fantastic. The views were amazing and the facilities were exquisite. The accomodation is perfect if you want to be out of the busy tourist areas and want a relaxing holiday with no hassles. The staff at semara are so friendly and so happy at all times. We noticed a beach wedding while we were there which looked absolutely amazing, and wished that we had known about this resort when we got married. I recommend Semara Uluwatu highly!!

We stayed in Villa Ambar for 3 nights for a family wedding. Other wedding guests and family stayed in the adjoining villas (Pawana and Tamarama) and we spent time in all three. The service was amazing - thank you Dama and Ivan (butlers) for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable and for your attention to detail. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
The location is unforgettable and the property really has been designed and built to maximize the views over the Indian Ocean. The beds and pillows were the most comfortable we have ever slept on. We had an outdoor shower and an outdoor bathtub in a private courtyard. Loved the turn-down service each night and the romantic drapes around the four poster bed (also practical for keeping the mosquitos out). We had cocktails and dinner down at Finn's Beach Club on our last night - and although it is very expensive - it was a magical setting. Our children loved the adventure of getting up and down the cliff in the inclinator and during the day enjoyed searching for hermit crabs along the unspoilt beach.We had a visit from a large group of monkeys one morning which the children also found highly entertaining (and slightly freaky!) although upon arrival we were instructed to close all of our doors and not to leave anything out as the monkeys steal it! I would highly recommend this place, it is unbelievable!!!

Hands down, this is the best hotel I've ever stayed at and the best holiday my husband and I had in ages! The staff are friendly and the rooms well kept. My husband and I never left the hotel-- On our last night, we ordered a BBQ dinner. The hotel staff setup a table for 2 near the cliff overlooking the endless Indian ocean. It's magical and is definitely worth every cent.

Room Tip: Have the BBQ dinner!!!

If you've got the bucks for a once in a lifetime stay this place is the one to spend it at, we had the Tamarama 5 bedroom villa for 4 days and everyone had to be dragged kicking and screaming out of there, we had 2 villa attendants to cater to our every need, a chef on demand who cooked and amazing Indonesian smorgasbord and a driver for 12 hours per day. The only problem being which pool to laze around and enjoy the cliff views! They do need to broaden their food menus though as the same one is seen in the villa, the main restaurant and Finns, the beach restaurant.
Thanks to Mandy the new GM for all her help as well.

Room Tip: The Tamarama! If you only get a villa ask for the one in the main building as its bigger or there is...
