The Samaya Bali Seminyak
Ranked #7 of 149 Hotels in Seminyak
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Bali and the stay at the Samaya in Seminyak was the reason why; we loved it; my girls have made me promise that we will return; and it was an easy promise to make!! A special thank you to Ray and the team for making our stay such a pleasure. The personal touches made the difference; from landing and being met by our hotel driver with water and cold towels; no fuss check in at our villa; shuttle service for locations around Seminyak......to take-off. Location - on the beach and close to everything but with complete privacy and no noise. Each Villa has a private pool; but the hotel also has a large main pool. Food - breakfast and afternoon tea delicious; dinner also excellent. Staff are the best! No request was a problem. There is no other choice; we will be back

Stayed: June 2013, traveled with family

Overall this hotel is amazing quality, service and location - really couldn't ask for anything more.

Here is our story:

We arrived at the Samaya Seminyak after an extremely long flight and were greeted promptly at the airport by our hotel liason. The ride to the hotel was comfortable and they provided cold towels and drinks. Once we arrived at the hotel they immediately whisked us to our villa to do our check in there. Again we were provided with cold towels, drinks, snacks and a nice honeymoon cake to welcome our arrival.

The villa was amazing (we stayed in the Courtyard villas across the street), they had a rose petal filled bath drawn up for us and all the amenities you would require. It was clean, very spacious and comfortable. We loved the dual shower heads (means no fighting over the hot water!). The private pool was beautiful, it was thoroughly cleaned every day and the water temperate was perfect.

The hotel is located right on the beach, although we never did swim in the water, we enjoyed lounging in the chairs and the lovely pool.

The main item that sets this hotel apart from others was the staff and their service, they seemed genuinely happy and interested in helping you. From being picked up at our room in the golf cart, to the waitstaff at the restaurant and Ray himself, they were all very friendly and willing to go out of their way for whatever you needed (when we met Ray he provided his card and said if we need anything while we were travelling around Bali to not hesitate to contact him, absolutely amazing service!). The other big plus is the food at the Samaya, breakfast was delicious, afternoon tea was a proper tea service with the small sandwiches, scones and treats, and every dinner we had was delicious (although you did pay much more for dinner here than in town).

We also did a spa service while there, it was very nice in the ocean front room, we had a couples massage followed by a scrub and a body mask. We would recommend the massage but the scrub and mask was not something we would do again (through no fault of the spa, just not our cup of tea)

Overall we had no complaints (the only fault my husband could find was that the villa was too big!!).

Thank you again Samaya for an amazing start to our honeymoon (none of the other places we stayed could compare!!)

Room Tip: The courtyard villas appeared to be much newer, even though they are across the street it was very e...

I can't believe I didn't write this review earlier! Sorry, Samaya!

My husband and I visited Seminyak for our honeymoon over June 2012 and stopped in a few locations/hotels. By far, this was our favorite. They were undergoing construction at the time so there wasn't a proper "entrance" to the hotel by the beach but it didn't matter. The staff made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough to help us have a wonderful experience.

Rooms: The rooms are also incredible. Sure, they are not over the top luxury if you're comparing to a true 5* hotel but they are clean and spacious. The pool is also amazing. We stayed in 2 different rooms and we loved both.

Staff: So nice and helpful. There was nothing that was too much for them. We were on our honeymoon so we had been on the road in several cities by the time we reached the Samaya. We'd been indulging in a lot of the local cuisine but one night, I really just wanted a plate of vegetables. They didn't have anything like this on the menu but they made me a special dish.

Location: Fantastic location. Beautiful spot on the beach, close to all the great restaurants but quiet location.

Food: We had breakfast at the hotel every day and never got sick of it. We also enjoyed the tea time. Could have stayed another week.

We love the Semaya. Wonderful staff, perfect location and nice villas.
We had a beachfront pool villa for 3 weeks in May. Mr. Ray and his staff did an excellent job. People are just genuin friendly from the heart.
The restaurant is excellent and we enjoyed also the spa.
Thank you very much and keep up the good work.

My husband and I just left 4 nights at the Samaya I originally found the hotel from Trip Advisor, and although leery because it wasn't a name I was familiar with, after reading the reviews decided to give it a try. We were so glad we did. I cannot say enough positive things about the resort. The villas are gorgeous, the common grounds including pool & restaurant are stunning, the food is fabulous and the staff treat you like royalty. Everyone knows your name and they wait on you hand and foot. We loved how the included breakfast is offered all day long and how you can order off the extensive menu (no buffet). While relaxing on the beachfront lounge chairs, the pool attendants constantly fill your water glass and deliver fresh fruit.

We wanted to purchase some outdoor furniture and decided to ask the front desk for assistance. Roger, who was working st the time, couldn't have been nicer. He helped us find different reputable companies and then dropped us off to go shopping where the stores were. He even heed us find some different shipping agents that we could compare prices to.

I thought because the hotel was #1 on trip advisor they might push us to write a review. Never once did they ask, which made me want to write this review even more. They are reluctant to take tips, it seems their primary goal is to make sure you have a wonderful time. We loved it and would definitely return!

We stayed in a poolside Villa. The Villa exceeded our expectations, even better than the web site photos. The biggest double bed we have slept in. Wonderful breakfast on the lawn right at waters edge as waves come within 10 metres of you at high tide. In the evening the Hotels spotlights show up the white from the surf, giving a great background. The staff all seem very happy as they go about their jobs in a highly competent manner. We have travelled world wide very frequently over past 35 years, on both business and pleasure, yet we asked ourselves, "Have we ever stayed in a better Hotel???" We stayed 7 nights. Manager Ray is outstanding in his personal attention to the needs of his guests

Room Tip: We like being near the ocean so the Poolside section of Hotel suited us best

Me and My Wife just returned from Samaya Seminyak from our honeymoon. What a amazing experience. The food, the place and the staff are just amazing.

The villa was absolutely gorgeous and comfortable.

We will certainly return for a another holiday and a special Thanks to Mr. Ray Clark (GM - Samaya Seminyak) for making sure our stay was extra special.
