Luxurious villas on the Seminyak beachfront, with all the perks of staying in a resort - The Samaya Seminyak gets two thumbs up from us!
Browsing through Bali’s dazzling collection of Seminyak villas and resorts, it’s easy to assume that these luxury abodes all enjoy unobstructed ocean views and a bright white sandy strip on their doorstep. That’s the typical picture of paradise, right? Well, that’s not always the case, and there’s only a select few resorts that enjoy a picture-perfect paradise vista, right on Seminyak’s sandy shoreline. One of those resorts is The Samaya Seminyak…
An unbeatable beachfront address just a few sandy footed steps from Bali’s most famous shopping, wining and dining destinations, The Samaya Seminyak not only gets our vote on location, it’s also the only all-villa resort we’ve seen right on Seminyak Beach. We’re talking luxury private villas on the beachfront, with all the perks of staying in a resort…
So, we took a break from our Seminyak Beach sunbed and strolled into The Samaya Seminyak to check it all out. Here’s what we found.
Large & Luxurious Beachfront Villas
Offering two very different experiences, The Samaya Seminyak features two villa complexes to choose from: beachside villas that are graced by a warm ocean breeze, or the Royal Courtyard Villas with their lush tropical gardens and peaceful vibes. Both options feature one, two and three bedroom villas, so families, friends and couples are all welcome here.
Oh-so spacious, each villa has its own sparkling swimming pool and outdoor lounge area for soaking up the sun or getting stuck into that book you’ve been dying to read. Meanwhile indoors, the villa interiors are an air-conditioned refuge of classic yet chic decor, draped in whites and creams and accented by rich local woods.
Comfortable king-sized beds stand proudly in every bedroom, overlooking the pool and offering a sanctuary away from it all. Enormous en-suites complete the picture, with giant bathtubs and designer amenities that remind you that this is a five-star resort…
A Blissful Spa-aaahhh
Open to both villa guests and outside visitors, The Spa at The Samaya is one for the bliss list. The biggest draw card here is the outdoor beachfront spa suite that faces out over the Indian Ocean and beyond, giving you a breathtaking view of the deep blue and a soothing symphony of the sea as you enjoy a mind-melting rubdown, Pevonia Botanica facial or multi-hour ritual.
The spa also features couples’ treatment rooms for a romantic spa sesh, as well as an al fresco jacuzzi that captures the sunset dropping over the horizon each evening. Our fave treatment? The signature four-hands Samaya Massage is sublime (two therapists, one massage!) or, if you’re bringing bae, go for the 2.5 hour Balinese Eternal Bliss couples package, featuring a warm oil tropical flower massage, a choice of natural body scrubs, a milk bath with special tea ceremony, and a traditional facial. Eternal bliss indeed!
Dreamy “I Do” Destinations
With its collection of luxe villas, dedication to privacy and dreamy beachfront setting in earshot of the ocean, it’s no surprise The Samaya Seminyak makes for a flawless venue to say “I do”. These guys are seasoned wedding veterans, so they’ve put together plenty of wedding perks to make your Big Day extra special.
For starters, if you book a wedding package here, you’ll automatically receive a free upgrade to a One Bedroom Royal Pavilion Villa (based on availability and blackout dates) and if that wasn’t enough, the package takes care of all the necessities for you, including the ceremony, the venue, the hair and makeup, wedding cake, VIP treats for the bride and groom, and soooo much more. All you need to worry about is, will it be a beach or tropical garden wedding? The choice is yours!
Happy holidays Honeys…
