The hotel

The Seminyak beachfront also forms the backdrop for oceanfront dining and drinking at Breezes, and for sumptuous treatments at the spa. Making it easy to sample a little local life, The Samaya also runs a complimentary shuttle to nearby shops and restaurants.

I wasn't sure what to expect - after all, the Samay is not cheap! But it was worth every penny. This is the most amazing hotel. We decided to treat ourselves this year as we both have big birthdays and this was the hotel we chose. It lived up to and exceeded all expectations. From the moment we arrived, the service was impeccable. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were extremely clean, the bed was comfortable, everything around the hotel was well kept. You could not ask for more. It's like a little haven away from the madness of Seminyak. Even the meals in the restaurant were good, and with a front-row seat to watch the sunset in the evenings. The spa was great too. Read less

Lovely hotel with lovely staff. Our villa was beautiful, spacious and clean. Breakfast is amazing with a great selection to choose from, and even better, it’s available throughout the day! So there’s no need to rush for breakfast - it’s all about relaxation. There is afternoon tea also available from 1400 which is different and delicious everyday.… Read more
Lovely hotel with lovely staff. Our villa was beautiful, spacious and clean. Breakfast is amazing with a great selection to choose from, and even better, it’s available throughout the day! So there’s no need to rush for breakfast - it’s all about relaxation. There is afternoon tea also available from 1400 which is different and delicious everyday. A few gazebos for those who want to lounge near the pool and sun loungers also around the pool and along the beach. Shuttle service is available, but the main square is only a short walk away. Service is brilliant. Would definitely recommend this place. Read less

Me and my husband just got back from an amazing stay at The Samaya as part of our honeymoon. So good in fact that we were only supposed to stay a few days and then went to ubud. After one night in ubud we desperately missed The Samaya and they quickly found us another room with them again so we left ubud after only a night and went back the following morning to finish our honeymoon with them. The staff are by far the loveliest people I have ever come across and just have the sweetest nature. I can’t pin point anyone in particular as they were all fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and both our pool villas were just dreamy. Even with our own pool, we still went and sat by the beach everyday to just be around such amazing people and settings. The breakfast here is to die for and so is the dinner at Breeze. You are within walking distance of loads of restaurants and bars but be warned it can get quite mad and busy out there with all the cars and tourists but once inside the samaya, you wouldn’t have a clue what’s outside. It’s just heaven and I can’t wait to return. Read less

Wow the Samaya has to be the best hotel/resort I have ever stayed at (and I have travelled quite extensively) it is truly fantastic... All the staff are sooooooo welcoming and can't do enough for you they truly love the guests and do everything to make your stay comfortable. The accommodation is fantastic (we stayed in one of the Royal Courtyard Villas) it has a huge private pool, a covered day bed with a table and chairs, a lovely garden, huge really comfortable bed, massive bathroom with his & her sinks and showers!, and a 2 person Jacuzzi bath. Again I really could not fault the accomodation at all 1st calls again. Also you get 2 items of landry each that the hotel will clean for the next day. Also get free soft drinks and water in the mini fridge topped up everyday. The pools (one by the beach and one for the courtyard villas) look fantastic we didn't use them because we had our own pool!. Breakfast by the beach was great again the quality of ingredients 1st class and as always the staff would do any special requests if you have any. We also had dinner overlooking the beach again a fantastic experience So as you can see from above this hotel is truly 1st class and I would recommend it if you in the area it is truly fantastic place to stay Read less

Loved having our own pool so we never went in the main pool! Excellent breakfast choice and afternoon tea included and minibar included! We ate each evening overlooking the beach and fabulous sunsets. We never left the hotel apart from a walk on the beach!
