Two families stayed which consisted on 4 adults and 6 kids aged between 4-10. All loved the villa and everything it had to offer. We all loved Gusty the chef and the food he cooked was fantastic. The driver Maddie was awesome and nothing was ever a problem for him.
Would definitely recommend this villa for two families.
I stayed in this villa with a group of friends, which came to Bali for a wedding. The villa was just a short car or scooter ride from Seminyak Square, where all the amazing restaurant, cafes, boutique shops are. All the staff were incredibly accommodating, and the presence of 24/7 security made us feel at ease at night. The convenience of a car and driver made everything easier, and not having having to negotiate price with other drivers etc. All we had to pay for was petrol which $10 AUD lasted about 2 days, and over-time was $6 AUD per hour. Breakfast on the first morning was included and was delicious. The villa itself was insanely spacious, and the 2 pools added even more room. The bar (unstocked) added a touch of exclusivity, which was a hit among our friends that came to celebrate a joint birthday. Overall I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone, especially groups of friends and/or families.
Absolutely stunning villa, very modern and well kept! Staff are genuine and friendly and never hesitate to help or offer advise where they can. Very well located so that you are close to the Seminyak centre but not caught in the midst of the chaos or traffic. The 24-hour security made us feel very safe and our on-demand driver was always so humble, kind and never too bothered to drive us around - near or far. No request was ever impossible. The only small issue we had was when we showered, the water would run across the floor and all the way to the basin - as though the surface of the floor was not level. The speakers in the main area was busted. The bath plug was broken, but was attended to right away. Otherwise, I would definitely revisit and recommend to family and friends!!
We stayed here for a week and I have to say the villa was absolutely amazing & exactly what it looks like in photos and the service was even better. Driver was a great guy that didn't refuse anything we had asked of him, butler was also great and made sure everything was taken care of, the cook.. well omg the food was Devine and so consistent. Security 24/7 and made sure we were all safe and comfortable. I cannot express just how amazing our experience was here with 6 adults & 4 children we were very happy and plenty of room.
I highly recommend anyone who is looking well look no further.
Thanks again guys for everything
Stayed one week and had a pleasant stay throughout. The staff were extremely wonderful, always smiling and very helpful. They always went extra mile to provide the best customer satisfaction. The chef prepared us with five star quality food, the driver Madi took us to every place with patience and without hesitation, the housekeepers cleaned room spotless. Overall the best holiday experience we had. (This was for all eight of us)
Words don't do any justice for this beautiful villa. You must book and stay there to experience this beautiful atmosphere. Thank you very much Samudra Raya.

We have just stayed in Villa Samudra Raya from 6/8-14/8-2016 and WOW, what a place!!!
What you see in the pictures is what you get. A large, luxurious villa with AMAZING staff. Nothing was every too much trouble for them and having a driver on hand hand between 9-5 to take us anywhere was so convenient. The staff even arranged scooters for us a couple times. We held our wedding reception at the villa on 8/8 and there was more than enough space to comfortably accommodate our 45 guests. This villa is perfect for a large group of friends or a large family. We highly recommend it and are already planning to return with our children. One tip for quests is we recommend you take a picture of the villa business card to show cab drivers as although the villa is centrally located and only a 10-15 minute walk to Seminyak Square the location is not well know.
A couple of my personal suggestions to management/villa owner, I think it would be more beneficial for quests if the "office" was transformed into a bathroom for the "kids" room. Also I would strongly suggest a large screen TV on the back wall of the bar as this would be perfect to relax and watch sport or a family movie night relaxing in the pool. And finally, the sound system needs to be updated as unfortunately we did have a few issues with the unit overheating and cutting out (a minor issue in the big scheme of things although very annoying) Overall we enthusiastically rate this villa 9.5/10 and Staff 10/10. Thank you.
We have just stayed in villa Samudra Raya from 6th August to 14th August. WOW, what a place! What you see in the pictures is what you get. Large, luxurious villa with AMAZING staff. Nothing was too much trouble. The driver was always on hand to take us where we needed to go. They also arranged scooters for us and delivered them to us at the villa. The chef continuously cooked us incredible food and for such a small cost it was cheaper to eat in! We held our wedding reception here and there was more than enough space with 45 wedding guests. This villa is perfect for a large group or families. We would highly recommend it......already planning to return with our children!
A tip for guests we recommend taking a photo of the business card as villa location not well known however it was only a 10 minute walk to Seminyak Square.
A couple of suggestions for the villa owner, I think it would be of more benefit to guests that the "office" be transformed into a bathroom that attached to the "kids" room.. Also a large screen TV in the bar would be great as whilst relaxing by the pool you can watch sports or with a family you could watch movies in the pool at night.. And finally, the sound system could be updated as unfortunately we did have a few issues with the current system overheating and cutting out (a minor issue in the big scheme of things however annoying). Over all we would rate the villa and staff 9.5/10, simply amazing.
