“A little piece of paradise”

person found this review helpful

Villa Sama Lama did not disappoint from start to finish. Staff are fantastic and will do anything to help make your stay that little bit extra special, even the property cat, Isabel is happy to come and say hello if you like. The banana pancakes for breakfast are delicious. If you are looking for the little extra luxuries (tissues, shower caps, etc.) they are not provided. However the bikes are a great extra allowing you to explore the island at your leasure and after a hot day out riding it was great to come back to the villa for a refreshing dip in our private pool. It was good to not have the distraction of a television, allowing you to unwind and relax in the outdoor living space, even with presence of bugs, ants & lizards which all make for part of the experience.

“One of the best places we ever stayed at”
Reviewed February 7, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Villa Samalama was the best place we stayed at during our vacation on Bali and the Gilis. The four villas are located in a very quiet part of the island. With the provided bicycles you can reach every part of the island within 20 Minutes, the beach is located only 5 Minutes from the hotel. The service was amazing, the breakfast was freshly made every morning and tasted delicious. The staff is very friendly and takes care of all your needs. We will definitely come back.

“Wow!”
Reviewed December 16, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Currently staying at the Samalama villas for 5 nights and absolutely loving it. The staff are fantastic and the breakfasts are delicious. The villa is beautiful and very comfortable. Tucked away in a quiet back road but just minutes from the beach.

“The only place we will ever stay in the Gili islands!”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved our trip to Gili Air and one of the biggest reasons is because of our wonderful stay at SamaLama. We stayed at SamaLama on Gili T and Gili Air and both were absolutely exceptional, private, lovely pool area and breakfast that was cooked for us each morning which was very yummy (they make the best pancakes!). Great location on Air, right by the beach and an awesome Mexican restaurant near by, several dive shops close by too; the villa staff provide you with a map and recommendations of places to eat - all of them were spot on and well recommended. Thank you to all of the staff for making our trip so fabulous!
