We stayed for three weeks in Villa 109 in April. If you want a hotel with plenty of entertainment and night life you will have to take the short walk into Seminyak. However if you want a supremely luxurious and relaxing holiday this is the place for you. The views over the sea from the restaurant and sun terrace cannot be faulted. Our villa with its completely private pool area, lounge and spacious bedroom not to mention the huge bath with its own TV and two showers is one of the best we have stayed in anywhere in the world. The hotel staff without exception made us feel very welcome and at home and the level of service was without fault. The quality of the food in the Breeze restaurant meant that we did not bother to go anywhere else to eat and the ginger and pineapple cocktails were quite addictive. Without exception the staff at the Breeze were both skilled and friendly especially Yustina and the bar staff.. Special mention must be made of the wide choice of freshly cooked to order breakfasts especially if you like very crispy streaky bacon although back bacon is also available if required. The butler service was always available but quite unobtrusive. All in all an exceptionally high class hotel. Read less

We stayed at the Samaya for 8 nights at the end of our Honeymoon. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and a bracelet each while our luggage was taken to the room. We were taken to our pool villa (220) which is on the hotels main grounds by the pool. The villas are huge, with a lounge area, large bedroom, massive bathroom with double sinks, two showers (indoor and outdoor), large jacuzzi bath and of course your own courtyard with swimming pool. Housekeeping was excellent with a morning clean and evening turn down. Each day the complimentary minibar was topped up and every evening a snack was left in the room which was a lovely touch. Breakfast can be taken anywhere and at anytime. We opted to eat at the hotels restaurant each morning to take in the beachfront location. Breakfast is great here, lots of choice and table service. We had an early start one morning for a daytrip and the hotel staff delivered a breakfast box to our room so we could enjoy breakfast before we left. My favourite part of the day was from 2.30-5pm when you can take your complimentary afternoon tea, again you can have this anywhere in the hotel but the pool/beach area is so wonderful we chose to have our afternoon tea at our sun loungers. We were so well fed through the day that we never felt the need for lunch! Service at the hotel is wonderful, nothing is too much trouble. The pool staff will set-up your sun lounger with towels and keep your glasses topped up with ice water while you relax and if you want a drink or food the staff will fetch it for you. We dined at the hotel restaurant Breeze a number of times. The food is lovely with lots of choice. The restaurant location is great too but they remove the sun loungers on the beachfront deck to make space for non hotel resident diners arriving for an evening meal at sunset. The staff will never ask you to vacate your lounger but I felt awkward lying there while diners were arriving to eat dinner during sunset. The hotel has a complimentary taxi and buggy service. The buggy will take you to Seminyak square, although it's really not very far so we walked. We booked a taxi one evening to take us to a restaurant that was ~15min drive away. They even picked us up once we were ready to come back to the hotel.The staff would often ask if they could book us a restaurant for the evening and provide us with a taxi. In our package we had a complimentary massage at the spa which was also lovely. We had a late flight and were provided with a room under reception for the day so we could continue to enjoy the hotel until we were ready to checkout. Even though we had left our pool villa the staff insisted we took our afternoon tea before we left which we thought was a great final touch. We had a wonderful stay at the Samaya and felt truly spoilt an relaxed. A great place to stay for our honeymoon! Read less

I stayed in Courtyard Villa, The Samaya Seminyak on 19-21 April 2019.. Villa : the villa was very private and comfortable, big private pool, king size bed, big sofa, huge bath room with two shower, separated toilet and also huge jacuzzi (not only bathtub ya). The villa has outdoor sofa beside the pool. Overall very awesome villa Breakfast : the a la carte breakfast was good, but for me some food under tasted. The coffee was incredible. You can ask breakfast in your villa or the restaurant (The Breeze). I suggest you to take it in restaurant with seminyak beach view. Very nice view. Wifi : the wifi in my villa (301) was VERY BAD. i captured the result of speed test. 2 nights there and never improved. One thing that made me dissapointed. Other service : they provide 24hours boogie service from courtyard villa to main building (as you know that courtyard villa located in other side of main building, behind seminyak square) They also provided free shuttle arround seminyak. I ordered that shuttle on 7pm for dinner and the hotel staff couldnt gave us confirmation what time our shuttle came. They said the car stucked in traffic jam. The other lady guest also angry for the late of shuttle service. I think when we order in advance, we will get the ontime shuttle service. Read less

We are just back home after a memorable holiday. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them, from the gardeners to the management. We were pleased we picked the beachside location. The grounds and the pool area were lovely and well maintained. The day would start with a breakfast of many varied choices. This was followed by afternoon tea which you could have round the pool or in your villa. So some evenings we only wanted a light meal which the Breeze restaurant was quite happy for us to have. On other nights we ate from their extensive menu. Hope to go back one day. . Read less
