“Most ideal hotel for a luxurious tranquil getaway in Bali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Spent 3 nights in this excellent hotel. Friendly and caring staff who address you by your last name. Food was supreme and the infinity pool was just incredible. Spa there was amazing, by the river with the most privacy.

welcome drinks upon arrival at our villa then we got a driver sent us to the city centre every time (even prepared sarongs for us for a special event!)

Could easily spend a whole day reading a book in our villa overseeing the river and rice paddy. The only downside is that the lil pool in our villa looked kinda gross with numerous inserts floating on the surface. but I much rather use the infinity pool anyway, so not so much of a big deal

Only one word to describe our experience at Villa Semana - Fantastic. The villa was really romantic, with a scenic view of the paddy fields, clear blue skies, outdoor shower and I really love the outdoor lounge area though I was afraid of the frogs that appeared every evening at the pond area. We love that there is no television set in the room and the chocolates given daily is a really sweet gesture. The shuttle service to Ubud Centre was extremely reliable. We really enjoyed personalized service at this exclusive resort, with the well-mannered and charismatic staff catering to our every need. We also had the chance to chat with the owner, Mr Suter who always had interesting stories to share and always provided great tips on the best places to eat and tour around Ubud and Bali. We hope to return again soon! (P/S They serve a unique jam of the salak fruit at breakfast. It was nice, not too sweet. I regret not buying it!)

My wife, younger son and I spent 3 days at Villa Semana in Ubud in April. We chose the Pool Duplex Villa which had two bedroom over 2 floors and a shared lounge area. The villa was clean, comfortable and the amenities were excellent . Although it was a very short break, we had a wonderful time. The villa is sufficiently secluded and anyone wanting peace and quiet can easily find it here. But what stood out was the warmth and friendly service. Everyone had a smile on their face and was also willing to help. We went for a morning walk and got more than we bargained for with a friendly guide from the villa taking us through the padi fields and the villages showing us unique insights into the life in Ubud. My son and I also signed up for the cooking class and we had so much fun under the guidance of a skilled and patient chef, who was prepared to change the menu to suit our requests. Also, the lovely setting of the spa by the river was another wonderful attraction with its serenity and relaxing massage. Overall, we had a memorable time and would recommend Villa Semana for any one looking for a peaceful get away with all the comforts and luxury of classy holiday resort.

Rgds,
Adam

The hotel feels very private and secluded as it has only ten villas. You hardly see the rest of the guest and the staff to guest ratio is very high, hence the service is excellent.
The location is great in the outskirts of Ubud, overlooking a river and the rice fields. We were lucky that we happened to be there for the harvest, it was very interesting to see the farmers collecting the rice in the traditional way just outside of our villa!
There is a free shuttle to and from the hotel to Ubud centre once an hour or so, it is very handy as even if taxis are cheap it is quite a pain to negociate a price with the drivers.
The food is amazing although quite pricey; is worth following the owners recommendations for restaurants in Ubud, he really knows what he is talking about.
We tried the spa and the cooking class. I highly recommend both, the cooking class was particularly great fun.
Overall a great experience, this is the place to go to recharge batteries.

Apart from the culture, Villa Semana would definitely be a main reason for us to visit Bali again. It was way beyond what we had thought it would be. We had booked for a deluxe private pool villa but to our surprise, on arrival we were upgraded to their Presidential river-facing private pool villa- Villa Cempaka and we couldn't have asked for more. We can say it had the most beautiful view, and set up. There was a spectacular view from every corner of the villa, right from the veranda to the pool, to the rooms, even from the bathroom,the view was awesome. The owner Mr. Suter, a very knowledgeable and friendly person, has many stories to share about the local culture and happenings (do take his handy advises). He would give a personal attention to all his guests. What was even more commendable, was the staff. Villa Semana has a very friendly and professional staff who would take great care of you.
They have some lip smacking range of food which my wife still craves for and their inhouse freshly baked banana cake during tea time is a must have. The decision to stay at Villa Semana was solely based on reviews on tripadvisor, and now we can say based on our personal experience that it was the best decision we made. We highly recommend Villa Semana to all.

Villa Semana is truly a place of amazing service. How many ways can we express our gratitude for their constant catering to our every desire. They know how to make someone feel like royalty and give the VIP red carpet. The entire staff greeted us by name anytime we saw them, and they knew our itinerary for the week. At breakfast we would be asked how we enjoyed riding the elephants the previous day, or how we liked our spa treatment, etc. We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and booked the Rekindle Your Romance package. This package was Fabulous! The spa down by the river is a must, the morning yoga session was delightful, the chef prepared dinner poolside was delicious, the list could go on and on. The actual villa was very peaceful and relaxing. We always enjoy outside showers for an exotic feel. The private pool was wonderful and we used it every day. Also, the drivers arranged for us did an excellent job touring us around the island. One of the perks was visiting with our delightful host. He always had great advice and good stories. He answered our questions, sometimes before we even asked them. If you are considering Villa Semana, trust us, BOOK IT!
