We hold the Samaya in the highest regard, as my previous reviews for it obviously show, but the key for us is that it has never let us down - this must have been our 6th or 7th time staying here in the last few years and it continues to deliver...…..from the moment Sri communicated with me as usual to lock the booking down, to Karmaya and the… Read more
We hold the Samaya in the highest regard, as my previous reviews for it obviously show, but the key for us is that it has never let us down - this must have been our 6th or 7th time staying here in the last few years and it continues to deliver...…..from the moment Sri communicated with me as usual to lock the booking down, to Karmaya and the whole team (too many to mention them all individually) making sure all our needs were always met. Like we did again this time, we often meet friends from Europe there and it is always nice to see their reactions when they arrive and during the stay. Needless to say we always know they too will be looked after. The familiar faces are still there (other than Ray the old GM unfortunately - as he was a real livewire), the rooms continue to delight, the facilities superb and the service impeccable. Looking forward to our next time. Read less

We returned to the Samaya for the 2nd time in 12 months. We had some issues with Jetstar flight cancellations and Passport issues meaning our trip was postponed for a few days and the hotel was understanding and so great to deal with. The Samaya is setup and aimed at couples but with children aged 8 & 6 who are very happy to hang with us the Samaya is ideal, everybody was so patient with our children, who were well behaved but more to deal with than the staff are probably used too. They loved it and are desperate to go back very soon. Food again a highlight, every meal was really good, between breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner there was not a bad meal, we only ate out the day we went to Waterbom and that was dissapointing food compared to what we were used too. Again big thanks to kitchen staff for special orders for our children. Christmas food was really good, right up my street, roast turkey and roast pork in one dish!! Staff again so friendly and polite, our old freind Ari remembered us and was a pleasure as always, Rutmini & Others in the restaurant were amazing and never seemed to stop running. But the biggest thankyou was to Kris our butler, who not only became a friend but helped when our son stepped on an insect and got bitten, he could not have done more and helped our boy cheer up. Management under Helmy and his team is amazing and they run a great organisation. The staff are always smiling and engaging, from front of house to the gardeners they are all amazing. Yes there are cheaper places in Bali but this is another level in our opinion and so well located between beach and Seminyak Square, we love it and will return very soon if they will have us.

We stayed here for 10 nights in one of the rooms on the beach side of the hotel (there are some rooms in Seminyak itself, which don't have the same magic and will be more humid).

We stayed here for 10 nights in one of the rooms on the beach side of the hotel (there are some rooms in Seminyak itself, which don't have the same magic and will be more humid). Our room was a suite with its own pool and garden area, in a fully enclosed courtyard. Very private and quiet. The suite was enormous, the bathroom area in particular (with two showers, one inside and one outside). We had fresh fruit every day. All very relaxing. We were close to the beach and the restaurant (which was by the beach) and really enjoyed eating out looking across the sea and watching the waves come and go. There was always a lovely breeze at the front so that it was much less humid than further back. They laid the dining tables along the beach front (on a wooden platform) each evening, so you could watch the sunset as you had dinner. Absolutely wonderful! An excellent afternoon tea was free to guests each afternoon and they did different cakes and sandwiches each day. We ate in the hotel restaurant every evening. There is a large varied menu and we found different things to eat every night. The food was excellent. We ate out once for lunch and were not impressed, so another reason to stay and eat at the hotel. The service was excellent, friendly and always there at the time you wanted them. They took the trouble to know your name and always greeted you, even if just in passing. They would fit in with whatever you wanted eg time of cleaning room. We decided that whilst we had stayed at lots of different hotels all over the world, that this was by far the best resort hotel that we had stayed at. Outstanding! Read less
