“The perfect Honeymoon location”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

This was our fourth trip to Bali, and our first at The Samaya Seminyak. My wife and I decided to find a special location to spend 9 days of our Honeymoon. Let me just say that all of the great reviews stating the Samaya is the number one place to stay in Bali are all 100% true. We stayed in a beachside pool villa, and it was pure luxury. This place has it all: Beautiful beachfront location, luxurious facilities, perfectly manicured gardens, privacy, great location in Seminyak - and absolutely wonderful staff who will give you the privacy and space you need, but are always available to do absolutely anything you need. Add to that a wonderful restaurant to watch the sunset or have a romantic dinner, and a really great Spa facility to unwind with a massage whilst listening to the ocean.
Go ahead. Spoil yourself and stay at the Samaya. You won't regret it!! We would love to go back again one day

Room Tip: The beachside pool villas are pure luxury

The Samaya Bali in Seminyak is absolutely gorgeous!

The villas at The Royal Courtyard are luxurious yet understated, with an amazing plunge pool complete with waterfall on one end. The high walls that surround your villa mean complete privacy and all you can hear is the waterfall and many species of birds adding to the splendor of the surroundings.

The main hotel has complete beach frontage and the beach is beautiful. Breakfast and afternoon tea are complimentary and both are delicious!

The staff are really what stand Samaya apart from so many others - they are warm, genuine and incredibly gracious. They are also very good at their job and work very hard to make your stay memorable. The cleaning fairies were particularly awesome - never see them but the villa gets cleaned twice daily. The general manager Ray was also a true delight - just lovely.

The central location means that you are a stones throw away from the heart of Seminyak - a place that you feel incredibly safe in by the way :)

We will be back to enjoy the true luxury of The Samaya Bali - I highly recommend this hotel especially if you are on your honeymoon as we were - lots of delightful surprises await you!

Have been to Bali three times. First two times at the old Ritz Carlton (currently Ayana) at Jimbaran. Ayana is fantastic however a large compound and relatively distant from the restaurants and shopping and beach at Seminyak.

For our current trip we wanted to stay in Seminyak, be by the beach, and have proximity to good restaurants. My friends all recommended The Legian and although we sought a 2 bedroom villa there (to accommodate me, my wife, our helper and our daughter) they were fully booked. We then decided to try The Samaya based on positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We couldn't have been happier with the choice.

The Samaya is perfectly located directly on Seminyak beach. On one side directly adjacent (also beach facing) is the La Lucciola restaurant (well recommended) while on the other side (also beach facing) is The Legian. Past The Legian down the beach another 50 meters or so is Ku De Ta. Inland from the beach once can walk around 400 meters to Seminyak Square shops and thereafter a variety of excellent restaurants (Sardine, Metis, Sarong etc). Opposite lies Sea Circus - good for casual cafe style meals.

The Samaya grounds are low density, beautifully landscaped and consist of all villas with private pools. We stayed in a one bedroom villa and management were kind enough to accommodate our helper and daughter on separate mattresses in the living room. The rooms are very well appointed and styled, and the bathroom is enormous with an exceptional outdoor shower. The rooms are bright, airy and feel new.

The Samaya has an exceptionally located restaurant - Breeze, where excellent breakfasts are served. Breeze directly fronts the beach and we found ourselves starting and ending each day at the restaurant taking in the vista of crashing waves on the beach.

Should you wish to eat outside the resort, a complimentary shuttle service is available.

The pool was practically deserted (a good thing) for most of our five day stay. The Samaya felt relaxed, exclusive and private. The Legian next door (which we visited) felt crowded in comparison. The Ayana which is a large resort compound was the opposite - crowded and tour group like. We greatly appreciated the private exclusive feel of The Samaya.

The service at Breeze was consistently excellent.

The service from room staff was also gracious and helpful. There were some occasions where requests for restaurant bookings or fruit requests were not correctly made, or forgotten respectively, however these were small things and for us did not detract significantly from the overall very positive experience.

We also used the spa for Balinese massage and would highly recommend this.

In summary we enjoyed our trip very much and plan to return. We visited The Legian and although their hotel style rooms do come with an ocean view (while the Samaya villas do not) feel that The Legian is relatively dated, with dark rooms and a less 'airy modern' style. We also visited the W Retreat further up Seminyak beach and although it was a very cool hotel, for our purposes - I.e a family getaway where we wanted a private and relaxed experience The Samaya was perfect.

Look forward to returning....

We stayed here originally for 2 days and extended for an extra night due to how amazed we were with the quality of the hotel, the atmosphere and most impressively the service of the staff. They made every effort to ensure we were relaxed and their attention to detail from personalised welcome note on our arrival to all the staff knowing our names, was exceptional. The general manager Ray Clark is a legend; he came to personally introduce himself to us and when we wanted to stay the extra night ensured that we could keep our room without having to move. It is clear there is a particular brand of ethos in the Samaya and it shows within the happy bearing of all the staff working there. I would recommend this place to anyone, 100%!!!!!!

We just recently stayed at Samaya and had a wonderful experience. Location wise, it's very strategic, close to all the latest happening food & hangout scenes. The villas are very luxurious and spacious, and very well maintained too. The beachside garden, pool & sun lounge offer excellent view of the ocean and give one a sense of tranquility & peace.

The staff is also great, unobstrusive and very accommodating to our needs & requests

Highly recommended place to stay

The Samaya is every bit as wonderful as the descriptions. The villas are amazing, the grounds are immaculate, the staff are warm and friendly and overall, we couldn't have wished for anything better. Located right on Seminyak Beach but close enough to walk to all the local boutiques and restaurants, we were spoilt for choice. Breakfast was amazing and the afternoon tea a wonderful touch - it really is a fantastic place and we can't wait to get back there!

My husband and i came here on our honeymoon and couldn't have been more impressed. We chose it due to being #1 on trip advisor, and figured if it was, we would have to see why and if it was as good as the reviews say it is. From the impeccable service and friendly staff, to the location and beauty of the villa's. There is no doubt that this is THE place to stay in Seminyak, in fact ALL of Bali. It outdid our expectations by far, and there is no doubt we will be back to stay there again. Its just amazing....we had the honeymoon of our dreams thanks to Samaya. So many amazing spoils, from the petal bath when we arrived to the complimentary afternoon tea everyday. Famous restaurant Breeze is at Samaya too which was so romantic and DELICIOUS food, its a must to try, you wont be disappointed. I have stayed in some amazing places all around the world, and would be the first to criticise. YOU ARE JUST MISSING OUT IF YOU CHOOSE SOMEWHERE ELSE TO STAY.

Room Tip: Choose the villa's that have just been renovated ....they are so beautiful and bigger than the o...
