“Amazing getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Stunning villa with incredible views of the rice fields. We were welcomed by delightful staff who instantly made us feel welcome and were always willing to help make our stay extra special. We were lucky to have a chat to the hotel owner who gave us plenty of useful information for our day trip into town. It was great to stay somewhere where we felt close to nature and the private pool was a bonus. This is truly a place that will inspire you with its natural beauty and serenity, and leave you feeling calm and refreshed. One of the most special places we have ever stayed!

My wife and I are not easily impressed, as we travel a lot both for business and pleasure around the globe. When we decided to book a 3 day get-away to relax at the "winner of most romantic hotels" in Bali we were both intrigued and suspicious. We had been to "winner " places before ( see our review of Viceroy in Anguilla) and were utterly disappointed. Not this one; we were very impressed by everything we experienced during these three days. Location is awesome, as it is truly secluded, safe, quiet yet 10 minutes away by free shuttle bus to Ubud center. In fact, the place looks even more impressive in reality than on the web. We had the two bedroom villa and it had everything we wished for and more. Beautiful mixed architecture of traditional and modern, no TV but Internet, stunning view of the jungle, river, rice terraces and lots of sky. Inside is everything you need, extremely clean, especially since these villas are mostly al fresco and in midst of the jungle, with beautiful and cute amenities like outdoor shower, totally private pool, fridge, welcome drink and more. Service: just the right mix of full attention yet unobtrusive, very kind yet also very effective. The hotel has more staff than guests usually, and it shows in the attention to detail and originality. In addition to the wonderful 'standard' service we felt very special as we also celebrated a birthday there, and got very well attended to. This place is currently on top of our list of best experiences for romance, quiet, beauty and overall value, and it will be hard to beat. In addition, the menu and the food is excellent and very well presented. The owner pays exceptional attention to every detail ( reading glasses are provided if in need, bug spray is in the room, mosquito repellent is part of your amenity kit, just to name a few) . We were not able to experience the Spa, as it is very popular and one needs to book in advance, but it sounds and looks very inviting.
Unless you expect life streaming of soccer games and free animated Bali dance classes, this is the place to relax and unwind in style, without breaking the bank.

When we first reached villa semana, it was a total different feel and experience, because there was no reception and we were so close to nature! Right beside was a huge padi field and just greens around us. The staffs were absolutely friendly and nice. Our room was cosy, with a private pool right outside the villa. I love the bathroom the most! A huge bath tub and even an external shower head for u to get real close with nature.

Villa Semana, a hidden treasure in Ubud, Bali. It is nicely perched on a high vantage point next to a river and a padi plantation. Our suite comes with a dip pool overlooking the padi fields. Awesome view!

A totally relaxing place for honeymooners & couples. The harmony spa there is a must try! Imagine yourselves getting a rub down amidst sounds of a flowing river and mini waterfall.

Thereafter, help yourself to a lavender flower bath with finger food & a bottle of bubbly. This will surely feed your tired muscles and hungry stomachs.

The restaurant serves reasonably good and well presented food with service staff always on stand by to cater to your needs.

If shopping is must, Ubud town is only abt 15minutes away, ferry services included too!

Villa Semana offers u the best views of the river and the hills together.Bali was our honeymoon destination and we thought this place was perfect to spend time and relax The villa is away from the hustling bustling city and gives u serenity with the views of the rice fields, hills and the river together.The staffs were very helping and courteous.They took all the effort and made a special cake for me ,the way i like it for her bday which certainly made our celebrations a little more special.U must go for walk around the villa early in the morning to enjoy nature at its best.The spa is so amazing and refreshing.The rooms had an old day charm to it which was lovely.They also provide different day tour options to near by tourist destinations but it is charged.U can go for one as u wish to enjoy.

When we arrived at Villa Semana I announced "I am never leaving." Everything about Villa Semana is just nearly perfect. Luxury, well trained staff, delicious food, the most romantic spa treatment ever. We loved our villa and our own pool, and the views of the rice fields and the river. The staff could not do enough for us, always looking after us and tending to every request including transport throughout Ubud whenever we needed to go anywhere. We met some other travelers who were lovely and we enjoyed their company, and sharing our discoveries in Ubud.

Nice stay, comfortable and relaxing. Useful notes

1) small place, but n comfortable.. Good views of fields nearby, forests, and the river
2) not within walking distance to ubud town, but greatly flexible in the shuttle arrangements... Called for transport, and had a trip back within 20 minutes...
3) there is no TV in the room... Lucky for me, I did not need it... I had my iPad though :)... Internet was not very reliable though...
4) the Swiss owner came by every now & then. Nice to talk w him, and learn some new tips...
5) food was oriented for the western tourist, a little bland for my tastes... Nevertheless, the chef turned out a couple of dishes spicy and super on a special request, on 2 of the evenings... Pity he wasn't around all the time...

Enjoy!
