“Semara Left Us Speechless, Relaxed, Amazed and Blessed - What an Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

One amazing holiday that left us speechless, relaxed, amazed and above all blessed to experience such luxury.

Semara gave us the flexibility to: relax in our private villa, indulge in in-house massages, socialise down on the beach at Finns Bar and participate in snorkeling and kayaking. In addition when it suited we could venture out to the neighboring towns of Uluwatu.

The resort facilities immediately available in Villa Nora (one of 7 Villas at Semara) beyond the luxurious villa rooms with outdoor shower included a private pool with view of Indian Ocean, dining and lounge area, bar and entertainment room. The resort also provided facilities including tennis courts, gym, Day Spa and loads more which could be enjoyed by all.

For the team at Semara nothing was too hard, the amazing staff including Febri, Anik and Putra plus the team at Finns were always more than happy to do all that they could to ensure our stay was enjoyable and that our needs were met. In addition the team at Semara catered for our specific dietary requirements and without hesitation provided alternative meal options to meet our needs wherever we were in the resort (Villa Nora, Semara Restaurant, Finns)

This experience at Villa Nora Semara resort far exceeded anything we had ever imagined and to Febri, Anik, Putra and team I say a very heartfelt thank you!

From the moment those wooden gates open you think you have just died and gone to heaven!
It is paradise!!! The gardens are immaculate, the staff are more than helpful and will do go out of their way to get you just about anything you need.

We stayed in Villa Nora and we were greeted by 4 butlers that were at your beckon call 24/7.

The rooms are luxurious and the outdoor shower overlooking the ocean was simply something special.

This resort is by far the best I have ever experience and is definitely worth its $3,500 AUD per night price tag.

Arrived in the villa car service on time and in comfort. The Villas were as though we had gone to heaven. Each Villa has 5 rooms and butler service for what ever you desire. I could keep going on and on but you need to see this to believe it. If luxury is what you are after then Semara if perfect for you. Do your self a favour spend a few days here and enjoy.

Room Tip: You need to book a full Villa of 5 rooms so take family and friends to lower the total cost.

We recently got married at Semara luxury villas. Words simply cannot describe how incredibly breathtaking this resort truly is.

Our group occupied four for the villas - Pawana, Tamarama, Jamadara and Chintimani. All guests were in awe of the resort, it is truly world class. Each villas has it's own individual style but are all so elegant, sophisticated and relaxing.

The service received at all villas was faultless. All butlers and villa staff could not do enough to meet our needs. A special mention goes to our butler in Tamarama, Surya, who went that extra mile to make our stay unforgettable.

All guests who attended the wedding were blown away by the cliff top views.

The views, the accommodation, the food and the service were outstanding. I wish I could rate it 5+!

I must first premise those review by saying I'm not easily impressed. And have stayed in quite a few five star hotels. This however absolutely took my breath away.

My friends and I occuppied two villas. The tamarama and the one next door.

The tamarama is a two stores 1800's Georgian mansion with a swimming pool and 4 external guest houses, followed by an infinity pool overlooking the cliff edge overlooking the ocean.

Our butler tended to our every need and the villa itself is but have been at least 1000 Sqm.

The decor was magnificent full of history and character, there was also a cinema room, downstairs entertainment drinks lounge and tennis courts on site. The day spa was magnificent at only $40 per hour which was expensive by Bali standards but cheap by Australian standards.

The villa next door was a Japanese themed modern villa. It was laced with a large coy pond throughout the equally large property with an open family room and bar overlooking what would be one of the most magnificent ocean outlooks I have ever seen. An infinity on the cliff edge with a dining area made it the perfect property to simply take in the sunrise.

I could go on hours but suffice it to say although it was expensive it has definitely taken luxury accommodation to another level.

I would love to return.

My only recommendation is to go with a large group the villas are big that it would definitely be less fun unless you were with a group of friends.

just spent 7 days in Villa Nora at Semara Luxury Villa Resort in Uluwatu. Location is an incredible cliff top perch. General Manager of the resort was A-class and the senior butler Anik was amazing. All of the resort staff were close to perfection. Enormous range of spa treatments and massages available in your own villa or at the resort base. Truly a spectacular place to relax. World class.
