This was the perfect place to end our Bali holiday, and the perfect place to get engaged!! We did not want to leave and will always have special memories of Sidemen. It is so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing... our amazing room - Padi Merah Lumbung - had literally anything you could want. Comfortable, clean, modern, and stunning views over Sidemen... More

I stayed here for one night in July and would recommend this hotel. As with other hotels in the area, the room is partially open and does not have airconditioning. I did not feel that this is a problem. The bathroom is open as well, I liked it. However, I can see that the open rooms might be a problem... More

We stayed here for the last night of our honeymoon! We had traveled to Thailand, Cambodia, to Nusa Lembongan, then to Ubud in Bali prior to coming here. Early in our trip it was recommended to us by a Polish man "You must check out Sideman, it's my favorite place in Bali" and it did not disappoint! Samanvaya is top... More

We found Ubud much too crowded and touristy and were looking for somewhere peaceful and quiet, but well situated for exploring other parts of Bali; Samanvaya in Sidemen proved to be all of this and so much more. It is small enough to be intimate but big enough to have everything we could ask for; pool, nice restaurant, spa and... More

We stayed at Samanvaya in Sidemen for two nights. It is a lovely small hotel with 11 rooms that can be left open at the side faced to the rice fields that are right in front of you. In the night the rooms can be closed with a curtain. It is a nice sensation to wake up in the morning... More

First of all this place is just beautiful and all the staff is friendly.The restaurant is so so but the biggest problem is a noisy neighbour behind the rooms. First night is was the music and the next 3 nights is was the TV. They have to do something about it.

Most stunning hotel and def worth its price. Great restaurant, beautiful neighbourhood, ... Make sure to book a guide in the hotel to do a walking tour in the rice field. I think it's much better to do this with a guide than to do it on your own. Take good shoes cause you're gonna need them :-).
