Having experienced resorts like the Ritz Carlton on the coast, the boutique Bale in Nusa in its heyday, private villas in Jimbaran and ubud, organic retreats int he hills like Bagus Jati, we have finally found our home which combines the best elements of Balinese experiences in a reasonably priced establishment.
Unlike more local villas s et ups, the cleanliness and hygine is at the level of 5 star resorts. Sure you'd have the experience of some bugs as its right amongst the padis and jungle, but it comes with the territory togetherr with local flora and fauna which is in beautiful abundance at the foot of the villa and int he beautifully maintained property.
The 15 min regular shuttle to ubud and back is perfect as everything in town including cheap eats and massages if you desire, is easily accessible but one returns with a short hop to your own private mecca in villa semana nestled amongst the padis in its secure privacy.
For the adventerous, a cycle with Jurg around the ubud villages is a great way to experience and see the more rustic aspecsts of traditional bali even whilstt he center of ubud town is flooded with tourists and day trippers of all shapes and sizes and colours, just make sure that you book a spa after especially useful for city slickers like me!
The spa is outstanding. Few words can discribe except one has to try the samena harmony.
Thanks jurg and all the villa samena team.
We will be back.
