Full accommodation information

Designed as an extension of the Samaya Seminyak, guests can enjoy tranquillity and Balinese hospitality alongside the beautiful River Ayung.
The Ayung River Valley is the backdrop for the 19 villas which sit nestled into five hectares of lush green landscape offering true privacy and stunning views. The entire resort has an aura of true culture with its dedication to the experiences that the local area provides such as cooking schools and local village tours.
Each of the villas offers the mod cons you would expect from a luxury resort, all enclosed within the confines of the cool, contemporary villas. They all come complete with a private pool and views over the river.
The restaurant at the resort serves a range of cuisines catering to all tastes. Its setting next to the river is unrivalled. At dusk, enjoy a cocktail and
watch the fireflies play as the sun sets. For extra romance, the ‘100 Candles Dinner’ is a unique romantic experience with a breathtaking Balinese landscape view complete with 100 candles and an abundance of flower petals.
The spa directly overlooks the river, and offers state of the art equipment and an extensive treatment menu. It is the ideal place to spend some time dedicated to you, with massages and traditional Balinese rituals that are perfect for private relaxation or a romantic couple’s activity.
