BOTH Seminyak and Ubud are prized tourist hotspots for various reasons – the former is especially known for its glamorous restaurants, bars and shopping options, while the latter is more stripped back in its stunning nature setting.
For couples, the Samaya Seminyak is the ideal place for a romantic getaway with 30 one-bedroom beachfront villas lining the golden coast. While across the road, 22 stylish Royal Courtyard Villas offer a little more space and privacy for families that need an extra bedroom or two.
At Samaya Ubud, 19 villas nestle in the tranquil Ayung Valley, each surrounded by lush tropical gardens. One-bedroom Hill View Villas higher up in the resort provide extensive views of the sprawling rice fields, but a little lower down; Ayung Villas make for a perfect riverside retreat. A number of generously sized two and three bedroom villas are also available at the site.
Villas at both locations benefit from modern interiors that complement the natural aesthetic of their idyllic surroundings.
Each also has a private pool, a spacious bathroom with his-and-her sinks, a whirlpool spa bath, plush double beds and high-tech amenities – an LCD television, a DVD player, an iPod docking station, high-speed Internet and WiFi throughout the property.
Reflecting the Samaya Bali’s commitment to traditional Balinese hospitality, villas also benefit from 24-hour butler service. Other complementary provisions include breakfast from the a la carte menu and afternoon tea, daily between 3-5 pm. You can even opt for morning yoga three days a week from the beachfront sun deck at Samaya Seminyak or the river’s edge at Samaya Ubud.
A further highlight at both resorts is the unique dining options. At the beachfront Breeze Restaurant at Samaya Seminyak, you can dine al fresco and sample Indonesian and continental cuisine.
While naturally romantic, unobstructed views also make the restaurant’s deck area the best place to catch a famous Seminyak sunset. Or, for something more intimate, relax and take in the scenery from under a Royal Canopy bathed in candlelight.
Overlooking the rolling Ayung River, the Swept Away Restaurant at Samaya Ubud is equally enchanting. From the wooden terrace, the rhythmic sounds and leafy flora provide the perfect backdrop for exotic cocktails and authentic Balinese fare. For couples, a romantic dinner on the riverbank can be arranged, complete with a custom menu.
Before you head home, be sure to experience “Spa at The Samaya”. The Samaya Seminyak boasts two beach-facing spa suites each with a Jacuzzi and sauna facilities; while two suites at the Samaya Ubud Spa offer pleasant views across the Ayung River.
Both sites provide an extensive list of regional treatments ranging from oil and hot stone massages to rejuvenating facials.
Whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic break or a busy family craving some R&R, the Samaya Bali properties tick all the right boxes.
