“Honeymoon in the dream called Villa Semana!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

A friend had suggested us this beautiful resort after he visited this resort for his honeymoon. From the first contact with the resort authorities to our last adieu, we experienced superior hospitality from the ever joyful staff, chef, and the Swiss owner Mr. Jurg Suter. It was like a icing on the cake when we were upgraded to Villa Cempaka from Villa Alamanda by the Resort authorities. To say the Villa Cempaka was a piece of heaven is just an understatement. The resort is located on the banks of River Ayung and the villa offered spectacular view of the gushing river and Ubud forest which offered breathtaking scenery and extreme privacy. As we had arrived on the valentine's eve, I wanted to surprise my wife with an intimate dinner and I discussed this with the owner who went out of his way to arrange a lavish poolside private dinner with cocktails just for us. We were bowled over by the delicious food and attentive and non intrusive staff services. We must suggest a trip to the spa at this resort. The location is fantastic and very relaxing. We hope to go back for a longer stay. And my wife hopes to get a recipe of the delicious banana bread made by the chef for breakfast!..

My partner and I spent a delightful afternoon at this thoroughly enchanting villa. What a
location! We are vegetarians and appreciated a special vegetarian main course followed by a perfectly prepared creme brulée and espresso. Afterwards we were escorted down to see the racing river. One of the most splendid river views in all of Bali.

I highly recommend Villa Semana for a couples holiday... Intimate and lovely with great staff and some of the best Balinese food in Ubud. We dined out much of the time as we had our own transport and wanted to explore a bit, but when we ate poolside at Semana looking out at the incredible view it was special and I wish we had done it more.
It really is a rare view.
The main pool is freshwater and amazing, and the private pools in the villas are a luxurious touch.
We wanted breakfast served in our room, no problem.. Mossie coils in a lovely clay pot delivered at 1am... No problem. Nice little complimentary touches around... Biscuits, fruit etc...

Anyway, I thought it was great and we'll be back... Nice to see it done properly for a change.

We stayed in Villa Semana for 6 days for our honeymoon. We were graded up free of charge from a superior room to the suite. I mean... See the photos... It was the greatest hotel I have ever experienced. You don't hear anything apart from the frogs and crickets and the water running down our own little waterfall right in front of the villa. We had our own pool with view directly on the river. The service as well as the food was amazing. All requests we had were taken care of immediately. Also great English skills of all employees. They have a free, regular shuttle to and from the city center of Ubud, which takes about 10-15 minutes.
All in all we had a fantastic time and would recommend the hotel to anyone, especially to honeymooners such as ourselves.

We spent 2 nights in Villa Semana and really enjoyed the time spent there. The villa itself with the great view on the rice fields is simply fantastic. The location, garden, service are really excellent. As wriiten in other comments, you feel like you are alone on this place, it's very intimate.
It's a perfect place to stay for couples and a good central place for visits.

We would recommend it !

Quaint and very well kept villa. Location is great for couples looking for Ubud-style tranquillity. We stayed in the Helikonia villa, nicely decorated, and overall great setting and views.
Staff and owner went out of their way to make sure the stay was great. We booked a yoga class in one of the villas (good teacher), the spa treatment was thoroughly enjoyable (again, fantastic setting and good delivery), and the staff was extremely fast in attending our needs (from booking a dinner at a restaurant, to bringing food to our villa, or to -this to me is very important- responding emails diligently).
While there are more villas in the complex, you have the feeling that you're the only couple there.
You pay the price for a great experience, and you get a great experience. Good job!

I loved the personalized service that Villa Semana provides. The meals are fantastic and their Chef, from my experience, is one of the best in Bali. I asked to receive cooking instructions and they were most accomodating. I was also allowed to accompany the Chef on one of his food shopping trips. A great experience. The personal villas are wonderful - very peaceful and private.
I cannot wait to return!
