“The Samaya - the only place to stay”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

The Samaya is the only place to stay in Seminyak. Well deserving of the No 1 Trip Adviser rating. The personalised treatment and their amazing smiles. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in 2 bedroom villas with our 2 older daughters loved the big pool in our compound plus the 2 other pools if we wanted to be more social. We could choose where we wanted our specialty cooked breakfast and our special afternoon tea. We loved watching the amazing sunset at Breeze Restaurant and the steaks were cooked to perfection. When I go back to Bali I will be staying at The Samaya

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

Stayed for our third time at Samaya Bali in March 2014.

It was a snort visit - just for a long weekend - but it was so relaxing and wonderful it felt like a week. Due to a late arrival on the Friday night we were shown straight to our villa.

We had booked a Royal Courtyard Villa however we were upgraded to the 2 bedroom villa. This was on the same side as the Royal Courtyard and beautiful.

Royal Courtyard villas are our favourite as they are a little away from the main resort, have the biggest and deepest pools and seem less busy. There seem to be some negative comments about the Royal Courtyard Villas but we cant understand why. We think the layout of these villas is better than those beachside.

Ray Clark certainly knows how to train his staff to give the best service possible.

We cant fault Samaya Bali and will stay again and again. Its the little touches which mean the most, breakfast included, afternoon tea included, laundry included, transfers included, mini bar included. All this is just so important and makes the all the difference when choosing somewhere to stay.

The Samaya is also central to Seminyak and most places are a short walk away.

Room Tip: Royal Courtyard villas are the best. They have the largest and deepest pools.

We enjoyed our stay at The Samaya tremendously! Everything was so perfect, from the housekeeping, butlers, reception, and last but not least, the crew at the pool area and the fantastically friendly people at the restaurant. Not at all to forget, is the restaurant, every dish was fantastic, and the breakfast something to look forward to.
I would go again tomorrow…..if only I could!

The good:
Near perfect view of the setting sun at the breeze restaurant in Samaya, sunrise from our villa...


Excellent food. Being foodies, we initially wanted to explore the food around the Seminyak area. However, the excellent food at the breeze just keep us coming back for more. We spent all three meals within the resort during our stay in Samaya. Give the chefs a raise!


Service with a smile. Felt the warmth and welcoming atmosphere enhanced with every passing smile from the crew. It's a small gesture, but made a huge impact. Even the security guard smile during our stay there.


Peaceful serenity: We stayed in the courtyard villa which was further away from the beach. Inside the villa, it was like our little piece of paradise. Quiet, peaceful and calming. In the early morning, I will be just sitting by the pool bench and listen to birds chirping away and watching the sun rises.


Speedy service - Help/assistance was just a phone call away. Service was speedy ranging from 5-10 mins. Do note that some services, such as food request requires sometime for preparation and if we called in during peak timings, delivery may be slow. We fully understand that. Fortunately, during our stay, room service was very fast. Above my expectations. Thumbs up.


The bad:
Stained curtains/drapes - We stayed in room 30X. everything was fine and dandy. However, there seem to be some stain on the curtain... It's a minor issue but it looked like blood stain. So we were slightly concern with touching it.


Checking-out - I believe there were some minor misunderstanding while we were checking out with regards to the exchanges issue. However, there was a major fault that we were charge the fee for our spa as we have initially sign up for a package with pricing inclusive of the spa package. If we had not done a double check, we would have be charge the fee for spa that we had already paid for. Details regarding payments had to be made very clear as a slight misunderstanding could cause alot of delays or even spoil an overall excellent vacation

The samaya in seminyak was our first stop on our honeymoon and it definitely set the bar high. We were welcomed on arrival by Mr Ray Clark, the manager of the hotel and quickly introduced to Chahiya, our friendly and very helpful butler who escorted us through the beautiful grounds to our fabulous villa complete with a bathroom bigger than the room itself and our very own pool! The place was spotless and it's no wonder! Chahiya made sure it was cleaned twice a day and always left us with little treats every time we came back to the room in the evenings after a long day touring or relaxing on the beach :). In fact, the service from the entire hotel staff was exceptional. Each person we encountered whether it was the security staff or one of the waitresses at the breezes restaurant was polite and courteous and always made every effort to help us with whatever we needed to make our stay comfortable. Service double check!

The hotel itself is something else. The hotel gives off an Eco chic vibe and the location couldn't be more perfect. It's beachside so its easy to spend the entire day lazing on the deck watching the world go by or if youre so inclined it's only a short walk to ku de ta, Oberoi road and seminyak square for shopping and eating out/nightlife. The gelato/indian restaurant across the street is also a definite plus. For our honeymoon it was the perfect combination of seclusion and being able to plug in whenever we wanted to be social.

Overall we couldn't be happier with the experience we had at the samaya and look forward to being back when we're in Bali next time!

Room Tip: The pool villas are outstanding and come with 24hour butler service! Also make sure to check out the...

This is one of the top hotels in Asia, not just Bali.

From collection at the Airport to final goodbyes, The Samaya is just superb.

Accommodation is brilliant. We had a Royal Courtyard Villa. Spacious, great bed and pillows, wonderful oversized bathroom. Your private enclosed gardens pose the problem of either taking a swim or quick snooze on the daybed complete with outdoor overhead fan.

All in house facilities were there including open bar fridge and clothes cleaning daily.

Breakfast an absolute winner overlooking Seminyak beach with the best selection of offerings possible. Afternoon tea daily either watching the sunset or in your villa.

Staff always courteous and attentive without ever being intrusive.

I thought the Chedi would be impossible to match but I think The Samaya may have just done it.

Room Tip: Had room 306 - internal villa and very peaceful as only one neighbour.

We felt welcomed grandly by the General Manager and the staff personally explained to us each and every amenities and services offered by the Villa. We felt it was money well-spent as everything we wanted from a villa except for the lack of kitchen amenities, was provided but there was something minute missing. Something so small but it made a difference in our rating for the Villa.
Positive: the courtyard villa was big, excellent and private like we wanted, near to seminyak square and other shopping/ entertainment hubs, having afternoon tea by the beach was excellent, the buggy ride to and fro villa was prompt and staff appeared most of the time wanting to help.
1 - Laundry was promised if we send in late after 11am, it will be returned next day 6pm. No qualms about that but when we sent in another set the next day after 11am, the first laundry should be returned, at least we thought. No it didn't. So we waited the next day, until 11pm when we came back. The room was made up but there was still no sign of the first and the second set of laundry. So i have to call, and yes, the laundry was closed for the day and yes, i will get the answer or the laundry the next day. Nope, no answer and no laundry still at 4pm the following day after the villa has been made up. So moi, have to call again to get it delivered.
2 - My boyfriend used the ironing board to iron his newly-bought shirt. We tried to put it back, but the cupboard's light fell on to my foot, and then we decided to let the experts to help us and put it back. 2 nights later, it was the same spot as we left them.
3 - Last sunset before we left for airport, we had our afternoon tea by the beach as usual. My boyfriend rested his arm, unknowingly there were some food stains on the arm rest left by the previous seatee i guess. It smeared all over his arm. We tried to flag for someone to get the arm rest cleaned and his arm too. It took altogether 15 mins to get attention, explained the whole incident, get his hand wiped and the armrest too. Initially, we thought the staff have forgotten about us 'cause it did take that long.

Room Tip: Both sides of the Villas are good enough. Buggy ride are just 2 minutes away, no worries. Afternoon...
