The Samaya Seminyak

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Seminyak! We stayed here for 8 nights, bed and breakfast. We were located at the Royal Courtyard Villas which is down a road opposite the hotel. The size of the private pool for our villa was perfect for two. There is a sheltered bit in the garden also, with a large sofa, a table with two chairs. We ate our breakfast here daily (you just dial 0 and ordered your breakfast to your villa). We also had afternoon tea (again, complimentary) brought to the room. The choice for breakfast is huge! The top of the food bowls & glass when brought are all covered in cling film to stop flies getting in (not that we actually saw many at all!) The villa itself is stunning. Spacious, comfortable and quite luxurious. The cleaners come twice a day. When they delivered our breakfast, they asked when we wanted them to come to clean, we always said “in an hour please” so we could have our breakfast but they never came in an hour, more like 2! So we never knew when they’d be coming! They also come in the evening. The water in the fridge was always replaced, as was the bottles by the tea & coffee machines and also by the sinks for teeth cleaning. The fizzy drinks, beer, chocolate bar and various other drinks were replenished once a day and the sparkling wine there was to be only one bottle for the duration of your stay - all totally complimentary! If you needed a buggy car to the other side (the restaurant, or to get a car to another location) you just had to dial 0 and ask and they’d be here within minutes! The staff are faultless - so so polite and attentive, impeccable service. The room and whole hotel area was kept so clean, the villa pool and garden cleared twice a day. My doctor recommended I wear insect repellent of Deet at least 50 (we bought 100) and sprayed in on us morning and night. To be honest I didn’t see many bugs etc (less than I see in England in the summer!) and they fumigate the room twice a day and burn incense at the entrance. To be honest, even when our breakfast left-overs were sitting on the table outside until they came to clean; we did not see one single fly or insect on them.

I stayed here over 1 week with my family. Check in went smoothly. The welcome drink was very delicious. The pool villa was out of this world. It had a very luxurious feel and so spacious. The bed was super king size and comfortable. Three Samsung TVs on display with hdmi ports of needed. Lounge, bedroom and above the jacuzzi! WiFi was very fast to support any streaming service. The bathroom was very big. Large indoor, outdoor shower and big jacuzzi with light effects at night! There was free minibar which would hold: 1 coke, sprite, tonic water, isotonic drink and 2 small bintang beers. Plenty of water bottles in every room of the villa. A mini market is just next to the hotel. Breakfast was the best I’ve experienced in any 5 Star hotel. It was a la carte to order by phone. 5 Pages long any taste or diet requirements were covered. You could order as much as you like, any time of the day to your villa or next to the pool. So much choice! Service was superb. Your dedicated butler would make sure that any requests would be dealt with. The staff were friendly throughout the hotel. Cleaning service 2x a day at your disposal. In the afternoon 3-5pm, you qualify for free afternoon tea. Which comprised of cake, sandwiches, pastry’s with jam and coffee or tea. The Restaurant Breeze is overlooking the beautifully kept gardens, the newly renovated swimming pool and beach. The location is ideal for exploring seminyak. Right in the centre. Many restaurants and clubs nearby. There is even a dedicated free chauffeur service for hotel guests which will drive you anywhere in the seminyak area! We will definitely come again.

Location is great and villas are spacious and very elegant with many cool details. Manager Christian and all his staff members were amazing. They ask you if they can help and they did everything to meet our needs in an efficient and quiet way. Spa treatments are also unique experience. It is a tranquil, relaxing place. Nobody bothers you and yet it is close to busy shopping area and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and felt pampered. Food is so nice, something for every taste with nice afternoon tea, this was a really nice touch. We will remember this holiday as one of the most relaxing ones and plan to come again next year.

Visited with my Wife and 10 month year old Son. Were looked after exceptionally well by the staff. The villas are great - spacious and well equipped - and the ocean view from the main restaurant is stunning.

The location is just breataking and the views are amazing. The services are flawless and comes with huge smile. We were comfortable in the room. Kids has fun time at the resort. Staff does best to serve you well. Will recommend this to everyone.

I have just spent 5 wonderful days at the Samaya and it always delivers first class service and a beautiful ambiance. I have been coming to the Samaya since the recently left General Manager, Ray Clarke, took the very ordinary Santika Villas and turned it into the renounced luxurious Samaya brand that everyone knows today. Ray developed a wonderful team, always leading from the front with high expectations but with great respectful for his staff and the Balinese culture. He had this wonderful attention to detail that made every guest feel extremely special. We met the new General Manager Mr. Christian Gerard and he knows he has big shoes to fill but no doubt will continue in the tradition of his predecessor. The Samaya is such a special and unique luxurious place. From the moment you walk in and see the view, it is breathtaking. The Breezes Restaurant with white tablecloths, and candlelit tables facing the ocean is perfect for dinner and glorious for breakfast. The standard of service is impeccable. Now I know everyone says that the best thing about Bali is the people - and it is totally true. However, the additional skills of hospitality that these staff have been trained in makes the Samaya one of a kind. With all of the new hotels in the Seminyak area now competing for visitors, the Samaya stands out head and shoulders above. The Samaya brand is about the quality of the service and the relationship the staff have with their guests. I trust that the new GM will continue to support this as the Samaya’s unique point of difference. I did note that one or two small service rituals were absent on this trip which may have been just lost termporariy in the transition. I do hope so. To finish, my recommendation to anyone looking for a wonderful villa hotel with spectacular ocean views, an exotic and romantic setting, above-and-beyond service, beautiful staff, great food right in the heart of the best holiday destination, the Samaya is it. If Ray Clarke happens to read this - thank you Ray for all the memorable holidays you made for us. And to Christian Gerard, the best of luck in your new role. You couldn’t have a better staff to support you in your work ahead.

I have traveled half the world but samaya is far most the best hotels i have stayed in I took the royal villa it was huge with free mini bar and laundry everyday that one could never even expect and on top of that they gave me a personal butler . To roam around one just ask them and they arrange everything for you ☺️☺️ On of the best service and hospitality

We stayed here in may/june 2016 for our honeymoon. It is by far the best hotel I have stayed in. From the grounds to the workers. You feel part of a family here. Rooms are out of this world. Breakfast was amazing as was afternoon tea. You can use the massage at their grounds or there are a lot near by. I will definitely come back to this hotel again. I really can't find anything to fault with this place. We will definitely see you guys one day!

We stayed here for 2 weeks and they made us feel at home. When we arrived we were given the option of staying in our royal courtyard villa or moving to one in theain area. The royal courtyard villas are across the road and we are glad we chose to move to the main area. The food provided is great - from breakfast to the complimentary afternoon tea to dinners by the ocean. We did eat out a few times and the hotel was happy to give us a lift to restruant in Seminyak and we just got a taxi back (taxis are cheap) Each morning at breakfast the staff would enquire about our day and if they could assist. They would then follow up with a note in the room with suggestions. Where this place goes over the top is one day we wanted to do a day trip and asked if they could source a driver. They then offered the hotel car as it was not being used for the day and their driver for no charge - now that is service. It wasn't busy when we were there as it was the low season and the pool was being renovated (we had a private pool in our villa so we were not concerned about that) Christian and his team are doing a great job. We would definately stay here again

The hotel and grounds are lovely, and being right on the beach was perfect. The villa was incredible... huge, spotless, luxurious and simply perfect. It was completely private and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. We had it delivered to the room, and could basically order whatever we wanted from the menu. And the afternoon tea was also delightful. But it was the outstanding service that really defined this hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, prior to our arrival, my husband fell and fractured a rib. He was in excruciating pain for our entire stay, but the staff did everything possible to make it easier for us. They were so accommodating and considerate. I highly recommend this property and hope to return in the near future. It really is paradise!
