We spent one night in the lumbung and would have stayed longer if rooms had been available. The structure of the lumbung and the vista, are as unique as they are beautiful. The staff and owners of Samanvaya excel in their genuine warmth and hospitality. We moved to other accomodation but were told by Gede, the excellent manager, that we were welcome to come and use the resort facilities, so we were able to enjoy the great food and service in the restaurant. A chakra 'massage' with Mangku Mastra is also a unique experience and one which should be tried especially early on in your holiday when you have time to reflect on his words of wisdom. It will make you smile like the Balinese. If you can't smile when visiting Samanvaya and Sidemen, you need to take a look at yourself. This place is a gem.
Big thanks to all at Samanvaya.
