We spent four very peaceful and relaxing days/nights at the Samanvaya in Sidemen, which was just wonderful. The staff were terrific and the whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. We stayed in a one bedroom Lumbung constructed of bamboo and thatch with a large deck offering magnificent views of the terraced rice fields. It was very comfortable...

This place is so special. It is in Sidemen in a beautiful part of Bali that pretty much feels like the original Bali. The hotel itself is in the most beautiful grounds and each of the huts/cabins is so private and surrounded by beautiful plants and nature. The infinity pool overlooks the most wonderful view over the valley. The staff...

Super friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel, really lovely grounds, beautiful, peaceful views of the green rice fields. We did the scooter tour, walking tour of the village (excellent!) and the night market. We enjoyed the food at the hotel restaurant, and didn't get out to try the local warungs. Not the cheapest place in Bali, but I think you...

We just spent two weeks in Bali, and our stay at Samanvaya was my favorite spot. They far exceeded expectations. Gede and Diah took such great care of us and accommodated our every request with a smile including making a special trip into town to pickup Babi Guling for my husband! This place is SO SO peaceful. Our room, Kenyari,...

In all my travels I don't think I have ever had such and incredible view from my bed! The room has bi-fold doors which we left completely open all the time so it was a wonderful inside/outside experience.

This place has a luxury boutique hotel feel. It is set in the rice terraces and has breathtaking views. When you enter there is a small reception area and gorgeous infinity pool looking over the rice terraces. The grounds are beautifully maintained, I haven't seen a garden that gorgeous in my whole stay in Bali. There is also a separate...

I cannot fault this hotel for its villas, amenities and the conduct of its staff. It is extremely well managed and anyone staying there will be well-looked after by the very attentive staff. Compared to others, it is expensive - even at the last-minute rate and no favours are given. Example: even though the hotel was probably only 30% full...

I stayed in the Padi Putih Lumbung with my two sons in January 2017. I wanted to better explore the Balinese countryside and see a bit more of the "real' Bali. This was an area I'd never been to before (having been to bali several times) so was quite excited at the prospect of seeing something different. First of all,...

An amazingly well kept place with love and spirit for the details. The crew is as lovely as one can imagine, very attentive, always smiling, never disturbing.
