We spent 3 nights at Villa Semana and wished we had a least one more night to have the time to just relax at our villa and enjoy the amenities of the resort. We booked one of the rooms that shares a common wall with another room. Each has a separate entrance and it's own pool. The room was beautifully detailed with art and personal touches (a sweet baked every night for guests was left during turn-down service), and the bathroom was spacious with a deep tub and tropical outdoor shower. The only drawback of our villa (called Lily) was that the common wall with the other half of the duplex was thin so sound traveled very easily. We actually needed earplugs the first night when our neighbors arrived late. And their morning alarm actually woke us up too. Other than that, our stay was relaxed and we enjoyed the seclusion and quiet of the countryside.
We had no trouble with Villa Semana being 20-30 minutes outside of downtown Ubud. There are many interesting little neighboring villages that were less commercialized and had better quality arts and crafts. We also wanted to get away from civilization a bit. We had a little trouble finding Villa Semana when arriving from Amed (had spent 3 nights there diving), but our local driver just kept asking for directions once we felt we were in the general vicinity. (Their map online isn't too detailed, not that there are street signs anyway!)
