After the hustle and bustle of Kuta Bali we went to the Gili islands, that consists of three small islands just off Lombok and around two hours from Bali by fast boat. To be fair we booked this as a last resort as rooms were going fast, so we did not know what to expect. My expectations were quite high... More

We moved from another homestay for somewhere a bit more luxurious to stay for my boyfriends birthday.. And after a few looks around the rooms at samba and a bit of negotiation on prices we were checked in! In total we stayed at Samba 3nights and loved every minute of our stay!

This was our 2nd trip to Samba Villas and we still found it just about all we could ask for. Perfect location, not to far from the night life, bars and night markets. But still quiet, excellent service and room. Wi fi a little dodgy, stopping every 1/2 hour or so, but still it was better than some places on... More

My sister and I shared the Asuka 2 villa with one queen sized bed. We didn't see any bed bugs however once we returned back to Aus, we have both developed hundreds of very itchy bites and blisters. They are unbearable. Apart from this, the accommodation and staff were great. You are always taking a chance with bed bugs anywhere... More

Location is a plus for this villa. Villa was right by the beach. The room was big enough for all four of us. Beds were comfortable. The outdoor shower was the best feature of the villa. Great service and friendly staff. Wifi was weak though.

We had a wonderful stay here. Great service from really friendly staff. Location was perfect as you are just north of the busy part of the strip. Rooms are off the road so really peaceful, quiet and private. Room was lovely with great aircon and fan. Massage was great. We snorkelled right from the beach out front and saw turtles... More
