this was not our 1st trip to bali but definitely the most memorable. Villa Semana Resort has only 10 villas, each with individual swim. pool. IT IS SO EXCLUSIVE and PRIVATE. no reception area. but the entrance is just next to a terraced padi field where you will find farmers working happily and chatting away. the resort's restaurant faces the Common Inifinity Pool which seems to flow down to the Stream and forested area some 2 storeys down. the place is so serene and peaceful, we did not even want to spoil it with our MP3 or even talking too much. our fav spot was the pavillion perched next to the stream with the sound of flowing water and occasional laughters of children bathing or trekking nearby. we are a singapore couple married 35 years and the Semana Villa experience really made us re-commit ourselves that WE CAN STILL BE ALONE TOGETHER, AFTERALL. the resort's staff of over 50 were so well-trained and they know how to respect privacy and know when to provide top-attention service. when we asked for shuttle service to restaurants, the staff even took initiative to make reservations for us. the driver phoned 1 off-duty colleague to buy for me some local products and it was ready the next day at breakfast. one more thing - for just 10 villas, they even have 24-hour Room Service. we were initially skeptical about staying in UBUD, but we will definitely be back and surely recommend couples who just want to be with each other. oh ya, and the Semana Harmony massage package - it is so romantic for the couple - no one should miss it !
