We booked The Samata last minute due to a failed trip to Nusa Lembongan (because of high tide) never mind not being able to go because we had the most wonderful time here.

The grounds at the Samata are so well kept and picturesque with the beautiful rice paddies as a back drop.

We had the ocean view suite so a large balcony and amazing view including a large day bed. The room was spacious, the bathroom had a double vanity, bath and waterfall shower head. There was a turn down service at night which is a lovely touch.

3 course healthy meals for breakfast were fantastic, lunch brought to our suite and dinner was very good also. The gym had everything & we did yoga with Bagus on our last morning which was a great ending to a perfect 2 nights stay.

Thank you for having us.

This little paradise is a hidden gem just far enough away from the Sanur hustle, with a beautiful view over rice fields towards the sea. It has everything you are looking for in Bali: very scenic, clean, well kept premises, delicious beds, inside and outside shower/bath, very kind and helpful staff, good food, fully equipped gym and even a tennis court.

Room: we stayed in 2 bedroom villa nr 1 with a view across the 2 pools towards the rice fields and sea. Ask for villa nr 2 or 6; they are further away from a bit of street noise in the morning and have more privacy as well.

Stayed 2 weeks in Villa 6, 2 bedroom, and had an amazing time with our 2 kids aged 4 and 6. Lovely resort and just outside Sanur which is a 10/15 minute drive via complimentary drop off or taxi.
Good food and staff is ready to please their guests 24/7.
No crowds as on the other side of the island and prices both at the hotel and Sanur are very good.

Lovely spa and fully equipped gym with Mr Bagus who is also excellent with kids.

Outdoor living, dining and bathrooms, what else would one wish for....pool is 7 x 15 meter and the kids loved it.

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about The Samata. From the moment I booked the room, the customer service was incredible. Their communication and drive for excellence are what sets them apart.

Airport Shuttle: The complimentary airport shuttle was waiting for me when I arrived, the driver was very friendly and provided me with water and a refreshing towel.

Hotel Check-In - Upon arrival you are greeted by multiple staff members and are escorted to a comfortable seat where they serve you a welcome drink. The check-in experience was smooth and timely.

The Room: I booked an ocean view room and was impressed from the moment I stepped into the room. The room was spacious, with a large bathroom, had a back patio, and a front patio. The view was absolutely stunning! There were a table and a comfortable lounge chair on the patio. They provided complimentary water in both the bathroom and the mini fridge. The room was as clean as can be. The bed was comfortable and had a bug net. They also provided bug spray, an essential oil diffuser, and an electronic bug thing. With that said I did not have any problems with mosquitos. There were a few in the room, but it is the tropics after all. Housekeeping did a fantastic job with my daily service and turndown service, I was impressed with the personal touches/surprises they would add to the room. I would for sure rate the room 5 stars!

The Restaurant: Overall I was very pleased with the restaurant. Having multiple food allergies, I had to be a bit picky. The chef did an incredible job of catering to my needs and making sure I had something to eat. One area for improvement would be the portions, I did think they were on the smaller side. I would usually leave feeling a bit hungry. The service at the restaurant was spectacular! They are very attentive, personal and provide outstanding service.

The Hotel Grounds: I was impressed from the moment I stepped foot into the hotel! Everything is well manicured, clean and beautiful. I really enjoyed the pool and the personal service that was provided while laying out by the pool. The Gym is incredible! If you are into fitness, this is the place to be. They have everything you need for an epic workout session.

Spa: I enjoyed a massage and body treatment during my stay at the Samata. The pricing and the service were excellent! The treatment rooms were nice and clean. Only good things to say about my spa experience.

The Staff: Wow! I cannot rave enough about the amazing customer service at The Samata! The staff went above and beyond to provide outstanding service. Everyone from the shuttle driver to housekeeping, to maintence, to the restaurant team, to the guest services team were on point!

Location: The Samata is about 15 minutes outside of Sanur. The hotel does provide a complimentary shuttle ride into Sanur upon your request. You do need to get a Taxi for the return, I thought this was simple and it only cost about 50,000 Rupiah. To me, it was nice being outside of the hustle and bustle. It is a very quiet location facing a rice field with ocean views in the background. The location was wonderful!

Overall my stay was fantastic and I wish I could have stayed longer. Such a great price point for what you get. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed at the Ocean View Suite and it was very spacious with a big balcony overlooking the pool, the rice field and the ocean! The staff there are very friendly and the room service food was excellent too. Going out to the beach was a bit far, but it worth the walk through a village. If you stay there, you never want to go out.

Dear jackngan,

We are thrilled to hear you felt touched by the attention of our team. When you travel to our exquisite and relaxing surroundings, it is our personal, heartfelt joy to provide you with the service you need to relax in nature that made you never want to go out.

The west coast of Bali has a different look and feel, with black volcanic sand beaches and pounding surf. Whether it's the exotic black volcanic beaches of the west or the soft white sand beaches in the south, there's sure to be something for every type of beach-goer. But it is great to have local experience on the walk through Balinese village and rice field

When you are once again ready to experience paradise, we will be here waiting to welcome you back to The Samata.
