“Great stay in luxury hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

This hotel is great with amazing rooms and service. It felt like luxury from top to bottom. The food was generally great and the pool and sun deck is a great spot with some nice extra touches like fresh fruit and afternoon tea served complimentary. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxed luxury stay. We were slightly disappointed with Bali and its beaches weren't the paradise we were lead to expect by the lonely planet but this was made up for by the Samaya.

Room Tip: We stayed in a delux pool villa and it was out of this world.

It was our family holiday in mid-June and we stayed in a 1 bedroom villa. The villa was clean, spacious and the bathroom was huge, with both indoor and outdoor showers. The villa had its own pool which my kids really enjoyed jumping into first thing in the morning! The location of the hotel was perfect for us - right on the beachfront and the hotel's restaurant, Breeze, overlooks the beach so we could watch our kids play on the sand while we enjoyed the afternoon tea served by the hotel. We had dinner at Breeze restaurant as well and would highly recommend it for the amazing sunset views.

Service by everyone at the hotel was outstanding. Our villas was cleaned while we had breakfast and our butler would arrange for our nightly turn down service while we were out for dinner. The hotel does not have a "kids club" but it can arrange activities for children. When we requested for a horse ride on the beach for our children, our butler was able to arrange for it that same day with the horse riding operator. We really enjoyed our stay at The Samaya and our only regret was that we couldn't stay there longer!

This hotel was truly incredible from the very warm welcome to the little touches in the villas. Everything was thought of and nothing seemed too much to ask for. The Royal Pavilion was stunning! The outdoor pool area was amazing and that made it so hard to leave! Iudt thank Ray and all the team for making our stay the best experience in Bali!

We stayed at the huge Royal Courtyard Villa. It's about 2-min golf buggy ride from the main hotel but their buggy would arrive right away as soon as requested so it was not inconvenient at all. Butler services were also available for the villas so you can easily call up and have your meals and afternoon tea delivered to your villa. The villa was HUGE with its own deep swimming pool and jacuzzi. It also came with complimentary food and drinks (incl. a bottle of wine!) from the minibar. The beachside restaurant has a very lovely view of the sunset. The spa services were also good and you can hear the crashing of the waves while you have your massage so it was very relxaxing. We were not allowed though to swim at the beach because of the strong waves but nevertheless it was just nice to lounge around by the beach while having an afternoon tea. The hotel also has free shuttle services to Seminyak Centre with free pick-up if needed. Highly recommended for couples who would like quiet time for themselves!

Stayed between June 22nd - 27th on the Honeymoon package. From the booking process through to the exceptionally late check out, everything was exactly as described in the package details and more!
Villa was beautiful, well presented and spotless. Breakfast options were plentiful and delicious, service impeccable and location perfect.
The Honeymoon extras (romantic dinner, spa experience etc) were all top notch.
As this was our first trip to Bali I am unable to compare the standard of The Samaya to any other hotel / resort on the island, however I would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone.
As our departing flight was not until the early hours of the following day, being able to remain in our villa until 10.30pm on our check-out day was a real bonus and effectively gave us a complete extra day to enjoy without the worry of having to move out from the villa at 12.00.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Royal Courtyard villas away from the Main area. Found this to be perfect, quiet and co...

We read an earlier review that sounds absolutely nothing like this resort - so we can only assume that since being refurbished, any complaints have already been completely dealt with. We have just returned from our honeymoon at the Samaya in Seminyak and found it to be perfect..We can't wait to return.

1. The resort itself is very stylish and tasteful. Clean open spaces, marble, wood, lawned areas with trees and beautifully shaped pools (nearby 5 star resorts seemed over glitsy and less tasteful in comparison)

2. The villas are outstanding - spacious, cleaned twice daily, everything in good working order - huge bed, delightful showers, spa bath, tasteful decor throughout. Outside area - lovely pool (always clean), sunloungers, seating area comfortable, patio, pretty garden - we loved our villa

3. The staff are delightful - very helpful, friendly and pleasant demeanor, clean and well presented at ALL times without fail.

4. The breakfasts and afternoon teas are all wonderful - plenty of choice at breakfast. The restaurant menu seemed a little restrictive but then so did the menus in other restaurants in the area.

5. Security is excellent - people from outside are prevented from walking through the hotel grounds by the security staff at entrances

We would completely recommend this resort to anyone wanting a wonderful holiday experience in Bali - peaceful, romantic and the staff make you feel special too.
