After a great experience at Samanya in Ubud, I arrived in their other Balinese property excited to see how good it could be. The experience started with a warm welcome before being escorted to the room. I stayed in a Pool Villa with a large private swimming pool, working desk, large jacuzzitub in the bathroom and a separate shower.
There are 52 villas total at Samaya Seminyak and the service isn’t as good and personalized as in their Ubud-property. The staff are however very friendly and smiling as always in Bali, but more training could be needed. The facilities included an outdoor pool, sauna, spa and a fitness centre. The hotel also has complimentary transfers within 2 kilometres of the hotel. A service that more and more Balinese resorts implement. The food could easily be improved and was surely better in their Ubud-property. The stay ended with a good á la carte breakfast and the two Samaya properties was overall very interesting experiences to the portfolio.
My opinion: Good+ experience.
