My Girlfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights.
From the second we entered right up to the second we left, the service and experience at Samaja was second to none. For the entire length of our stay, we truly felt taken care of. The villa's themselves were amazing, but the service we received was out of this world.
Nestled in Seminyak, it is far enough from all the hustle and bustle for it to feel like you are on a true private getaway. Yet only a 5-10 minute taxi ride will have you at Seminyak Square, Seminyak road and Seminyak Beach. Just a tad further and you will find yourself in the heart of Kuta. There is also a convenience store, with ATM's, located just in front of the Villa.
The villa's are very sleek and modern, with a private pool. Both the villa and pool are very spacious. The outdoor lounge area is perfect for sitting back and relaxing. There are 2 TV's, one in the bedroom and one in the outdoor lounge area. The beds were very comfortable and had no troubles at all getting to sleep. Rooms were kept in tip top condition and were very clean. WiFi in our room was flawless. There are separate keys for the front door and room doors in addition to a combination lock safe, so safety was never an issue.
The other two main sections of the building are the restaurant and the day spa. Although they are very small and cozy, we had a great time at both. Food was magnificent!!! The restaurant menu is the same as the room service menu. Breakfast was also a breeze. You just select the options you want at reception and they will take care of it the next morning. You have the option of having breakfast served in the restaurant or in your villa at a time of your choice. Obviously we went with the latter, and it was served on time every single morning. The day spa consists of two separate rooms. We got a facial scrub and massage which were done to the highest quality. There is also an on site security guard at all times, who would literally stop traffic for us every time we needed to cross the road.
The staff are the greatest bunch of people you will ever meet. Friendly, courteous and will go out of their way to ensure you are taken care of. At the end of our trip, it really felt like we were saying farewell to some new found friends. They also speak english very well and communication was rarely an issue. They are only a phone call away if there is anything you need. There is also a free shuttle service in the morning to take you to your destination (usually at about 11am). But if you miss the boat, they will happily organise a taxi for you. Honestly cannot express how good the service here is. May it never change. Will definitely be back and highly recommended for others.
As the villa's are very new, most taxi drivers will have a VERY hard time locating it. But just advise the driver to go to JL Kunti II (2), which is the road it is on. At the time of our stay, they did not have any signage up yet, but were advised that it was in the works and should be up soon to help people be able to locate the building abit easier. The villa's are located on the corner of Kunti II and another road. Adjacent to the villa's should be a small clothing store and convenience store.
Also be careful with the pronunciation of the name of the villa's to taxi drivers. We made the mistake on our first night of calling it SamaYa instead of SamaJa, and the taxi driver took us to Samaya Villas in Seminyak, which is a different set of villas.
Again as they are very new, they are yet to have a proper drinks menu (other than Bintang Beer). So those looking to sip some cocktails by the pool may be disappointed. But the convenience stores in Bali sell a small range of alcohol, so you can just go across the road to pick up some drinks or bring some bottles with you via Duty Free.
