We stayed in June for 3 nights. The villa was very nice, spacious, comfortable and the pool excellent although rather too deep at 1.8m and no shallow end. Having arrived late at night we didn't appreciate the setting until the next morning. Breakfast is taken in the terrace restaurant and not the usual buffet, A la carte and extensive selection. There is no start or finish time to breakfast so you take it at your leisure. A very refreshing change to the standard buffet.
We used the spa. The treatment room had views of the river valley , it was quite spectacular. The prices were reasonable for a hotel of this standard.
We took a tour which was organised by the hotel, reasonably priced and a very pleasant driver and knowledgable guide. It was meant to be a 5 hour tour after which they charged you by the hour but because of local traffic you could not see everything in the itinerary and get back in time.
Dinner was at the riverside Swept Away restaurant. A beautiful setting and extra special if you had the 100 candlelit dinner. The food was very well prepared by the local Balinese chef.
Apart from the excellent standard and facilities at the Samaya the top selling point is the service here from all the staff. From the management team to the restaurant staff and butlers. Everyone knows your name and the service we received was some of the most personalised, efficient and welcoming we have encountered in our travels around the world. I could not be complimentary enough, so we shall return when we are next in Bali. Thank you Samaya!
