“Incredible experience!”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

Never write reviews, but have gone through the process of signing up for tripadvisor whilst still here at our villa to write a review.

This place is fantastic. By far the best service we have ever experienced anywhere in the world. Our villa looks over the rice field. Ubud is a very relaxed town, an our villa takes that to an entirely new level.

After seeing some of the other villas we were looking at on the main drag of Ubud we couldnt be happier after selecting this place.

Villas are beautiful, with private pools big enough to relax in, daily breakfast served inside our room, exquisite staff, and only 10 villas here in total make this a very special experience for any couple looking for a romantic getaway.

Cannot speak highly enough about this place, enjoy your stay if you are lucky enough to book here.

Could not fault Villa Semana. We had spent one week travelling around Bali by mountain bike (including two nights in the centre of Ubud) before staying at Semana.
All we wanted at this point was relaxation - and we got just that in the most beautiful surroundings.
We were lucky enough to be upgraded on arrival to Semana's best villa. Which was stunning.
The attention to detail was outstanding.
My only advice would be that people may be disappointed if they are expecting to be in the middle of Ubud and it's Monkey Forest Street. We had already experienced that hustle and bustle so were delighted to be slightly out of the crowd.
That said, the hotel provides a free shuttle service to Ubud centre.

Another stay at Villa Semana and again a delight of yummy dinners, perfect massages in the wonderful spa by the river. Perfect villas with private pools, attentive staff, convenient shuttles to go to Ubud and an incredible view on the rice paddies. I was quite proud to share this very special place with my European friends on their first trip to Asia.

Room Tip: Heli Konia has an incredible view on on the rice paddies. Kambodja (for 3 pax) directly overlooks th...

My husband and I spent 4 days in Villa Semana in april and it was wonderful!
Everything is made to relax: the Spa on the river is quiet, the staff is very kind and the owner always has à good story to tell!!!
Our villa was gorgeous, we could only hear the river, it was so quiet and relaxing!!!
The restaurant is very good, with a thaï inspiration, delicious...
This was a very nice stay, and that's sure we'll go back there as soon as we can!!!

My partner and have I spent a wonderful week firstly in the Almanda villa(which is beautifully cute and cosy and affords a lovely view over the Ayung river in addition to being totally private and within a tiptoe of the gorgeous spa) before being given a complementary upgrade to the Cempaka (Honeymoon Villa). Villa Cempaka, although less cute and cosy inside, is palacial, posesses a wonderfull al fresco room and an expansive private garden also overlooking the river.

The ladies at the Spa have magic hands. We booked a couples massage prior to our arrival and enjoyed out experience so much that we felt compelled to have another one during our stay :-)

The food and service at the restaurant was wonderful.

If you enjoy cooking and or would like to learn how to bring the gorgeous flavours of Balinese fare to your table upon your return to Earth then we would highly recommend you to enrol in the cooking class offered at Villa Semana. Well worth the small fee charged. The chef was wonderfull (in spite of his chuckling and tisk tisking at my poor technique - all in fun of course). Ps. I've already tried out the recipies on my loved ones with great success- THANK YOU Chef!)

The staff were attentive and helpful in every way. We felt completely spoiled with the level of service. Jurg, the owner, even added his local knowledge and kindly arranged a custom designed day-long tour for us including a visit to a vocano lake in the highlands and a white-water rafting experience.

Thank you to the staff at Villa Semana. We look forwards to seeing you all again.

Warmest regards,
Suzette and Karl

When on a holiday, I hate it when the TV is on. This place is simply gorgeous, from the villas to the surrounding scenery. Surrounded by rice padi fields and a natural river. The hospitality was simply out of this world. Service was always prompt and the host himself was a force of nature all by himself. I'd go again, and I'll keep on going simply because at Villa Semana, I get to do my favourite thing in the world in the most beautiful surroundings, which is absolutely nothing. And if I wanted to do something, booking transport to get into the city is simply a call away. Suggest to take the host out for lunch and you won't regret it :) See you again soon!

Room Tip: More private villas are available if you feel the need to go au naturale. Ask for them :)
