The Samaya does tend to hit the spot – as it reflects pretty much every honeymooner’s ideal Bali hotel. It’s got the location – prime beachfront in the heart of Seminyak; home of Bali’s hippest bars and restaurants. Every villas has private pools and we mean proper pools rather than tiny plunge baths! Rooms are utterly private, and furnished impeccably. And most importantly of all, the staff are exceptional – but you would expect nothing less from a team devoted to offering the very best of Balinese hospitality.
Remember, it’s your choice whether to stay in the original Beachfront Villas (220 square metres) or the Royal Courtyard Villas set a short distance away by golf buggy (300 square metres with 11 metre lap pools) as they are identically priced. But of course you get to use the facilities in either section, including The Samaya’s memorable beachfront pool & deck. We normally recommend the Royal Courtyard Villas though, as they do tend to outsize most London homes!
And when we’re in Seminyak – you’ll tend to find Ethos Travel’s staff occupying a prime beachfront table at Breeze restaurants around sunset enjoying the sound of the waves lapping up – perhaps one of Bali’s most romantic dining spots (and of course we’ll book you a prime table on request!).
