“A Paradise for a stop during the working trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My wife and myself have had just 6 days between business visits in Jakarta and Shanghai. The decision to stay at The Samaya Bali was best. Pick-up at Airport - well organized at any time. The hotel with outstanding staff, friendly and attendent. Beautiful villa with own swimming pool, very proper. The Beach in front of the villas, ready for diner - exciting!
And, if you need taxi to town - just order the hotel free taxi. After 2 diners in town and beside of the hotel (Italian one) - you enjoy the diner at hotel (Angus filet is best....).
Thanks to Ray Clark to say hello once during our stay - great men at all. See you next time, Yvette and René

Room Tip: Seafront is near the swimming pool and the beach.

Although travelling to a different location this year, we had previously stayed at the Samaya hotel(s) for three consecutive years and feel the need to write a little something about these great Hotels and the staff.

We have travelled all around the world, staying in some first class hotels but both the Samaya Seminyak and Samaya Ubud are truly outstanding.

The accommodation is second to none. Peaceful but within very easy reach of Seminyak's bars and restaurants (though the food at the hotel is well worth staying in for!!!)
Samaya Ubud is absolutely stunning and the views that you get at this hotel takes your breath away.

The staff are very obliging, polite and the most gentle people you could wish to meet. They are never in your personal space or overbearing. Ray Clarke and his team have thought of everything that could possibly make your holiday the best ever!!

Admittedly we were initially concerned that the Samaya Seminyak was undergoing some renovations, but this was done out of sight, quietly and in no way interfered with our holiday, and would assure any potential travellers that this shouldn't be something to worry about.

Although we have travelled to a different part of Asia this year our love affair with Samaya and Bali is not over!!

My husband and I made a last minute decision to spend a few days in Bali, after a little research on Tripadvisor we settled on The Samaya, Seminyak. What an incredibly beautiful experience. The days started with long walks on the beach and a delicious breakfast 'on the grass' at Breeze. The staff were amazing, it felt more like visiting family and friends rather than staying in an hotel. The accommodation was spectacular, very spacious, clean, luxurious and comfortable, ideal for couples wanting something special for a honeymoon or anniversary. We loved Breeze, and ate most of our meals there, the food was delicious, and the setting perfect. Only problem was having to leave......

Room Tip: Definitely stay beachside.

I selected The Samaya, Seminyak for my wedding anniversary based on the feedback given on Tripadvisor though I took the reviews with a pinch of salt being the sceptic that I am. I was proven wrong.

The service was impeccable from the moment they picked us up from the airport to the check out process. The food, service, ambiance and view from the Breeze Restaurant was excellent. I couldn't have asked for more. We ended up dining here most of the time.

We stayed at the courtyard villa. The villa looked a tad tired (sagging couch and cushions) but no big complains. We loved it. We had no issues with the buggy service - never had to wait long. The butler was on call all the time.

Enjoyed the shuttle between Samaya and Legian/Seminyak area. It is easy to arrange and most of the time, the van is ready to send/pick you. We couldn't arrange for a shuttle once (arranging from the villa) due to unavailability of the vans but strangely we could get one immediately when we went at the lobby.

Samaya isn't perfect. There were one or two blips during our stay here (like no HDMI cables, no aroma oil for the burner) but nothing too serious. I would still rate this stay as "Excellent".

This resort delivered as promised. The best location in Seminyak, peace and privacy, but a very short distance from the whirlwind if you want it. The service is lovely and the restaurant is beautiful. It's a shame that as usual in Bali that wine prices are so expensive.
Highly recommended.

Everything about our holiday was perfect and all this is thanks to the Samaya. It really is like heaven on earth. It is a brilliant setting and a beautiful property but more importantly the service provided by the staff is out of this world. We couldn't have asked for anything more...!
