This oasis is set nestled near the beach just north of downtown Sanur. It's so peaceful you can pass days without care. You feel like the whole place is yours.

The staff is wonderful (thank you Lisa!) and be sure to find Bagus in the Wellness Center for a wonderful workout or palm/numerology reading.

There are cooking classes, yoga classes, multiple pools and relaxation areas looking over beautiful rice fields with cranes helping the rice farmers till their fields. There are just so many available activities to fill your days that you can stay for a long time.

The restaurant served delicious meals every time.

Don't forget to treat yourself to a massage or any of the other options at the spa!

The Samata isn't walking distance to the main area of Sanur but you won't want to leave once you arrive anyway. And if you do, they will get a driver to take you around Bali. It's just a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate your mind and body.

Room Tip: Ocean view suite is spacious with a lovely view!

The team focus on people, took every effort to ensure that your comments are heard. I enjoyed every bits of my stay to begin with and I definitely look forward to my next stay in November.

If you are looking to escape the city and really have a quality time, this is the accommodation that you should seek. Check in, enjoy every aspect of the villa from the room to the view, I guarantee you will check out as satisfied as I am.

The Samata needs no boast, view the photos from their website and that is 100% what you will get.

I am a happy customer! Thank you both back and front end staff for the great hospitality that you guys have extended to make my stay in Bali a different one.

We almost had a problem on our arrival pick up, however the front office staff, Okta had handled it well and managed not to make us moody before arriving lol.. From that point, everything else just perfect.

Hubby and I love the spacious room, the balcony, the pools, gym, tennis court and of course, the delicious food! I specifically chose for the Ocean View suite room #S2 facing the pools and distant ocean, unfortunately this room doesn’t have a bathtub, but it has a lovely small private garden lounge which just fantastic for a private sunbath :) I also love that they added simple services such as frequent mineral waters, lovely notes, prepare our bedroom with scented oil on early evenings and the airport transfer service.

The only thing to keep in mind is to go to the nearby beach you have to walk through the residential houses which typically have dogs and always becareful for (few) wild dogs wandering around. The nearby beach is quite popular for the locals and no beach facility/ cafes but it’s nice just to lounge and watching the locals spent their free time by playing kites, kids running and splashing by the shores, and some oldies wrapping their body inside the sands. Those definitely you won’t gonna experience when you go visiting tourists beaches in seminyak ;)

Ps. If you are on a diet, love sports and want a relaxing atmosphere on your balitrip then this place is a go to :)

Dear Dini_Ayu,

For a well-deserved vacation, we are elated that your entire experience at The Samata was a lovely one. We greatly appreciate your special note for our extensive fitness facilities, healthy culinary. I believe the team will be thrilled to hear you felt touched by the attention of our team, specifically Okta who turn your experience into happier one. 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.

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. That is great if you enjoy this different experience on the other side less touristic part of the island.

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

My wife and I spent 5 nights at The Samata after spending several nights at its sister resort The Menjangan. The location is superb tucked away behind a small gate off the village street. Inside it is a relaxing compound of several villas and suites. It has a ‘lifestyle’ theme with a well equipped gym, spa and lap pool. The grounds have beautiful gardens and everywhere overlooks the neighboring rice fields. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom villa which was stunning(thank you!). The restaurant is great with plenty of choice and never too busy, even on those days when the resort was full. On Independence Day they put on a special Balinese buffet and the staff even performed some Balinese dances. Well done! The resort will drop you off in Sunur if you need some extra action. A day trip organised for us to Ubud was also a highlight. As with all resorts it is the staff that can make or break any stay. The staff here are excellent always responding to any request, and so friendly. A place to return to.

Alas, only 2 nights in this small boutique resort. We are very sorry to be leaving so soon and wholeheartedly hope to return.
The entire experience has been faultless from initial communication to check out.

The aesthetic of the room was perfect, exactly what I love. We had a very spacious suite room (S1), right on the top storey 2 floors above the restaurant. Previous review has mentioned noise but we weren’t aware of it. The room was well supplied with amenities and super clean. Great bathroom. Super comfortable bed. Huge balcony with day bed. Also love the art around the place!

The resort is nicely laid out, excellent pools, lots of day beds and stellar view of the rice fields. The gardens and ponds are really beautiful.

The restaurant on site was fantastic. Given the nature of our stay we only ate here and, once again, wish we were here longer. Menu is superb, food quality superb and very extensive.

We didn’t utilise the gym or yoga, etc. Lots on offer for wellness- hopefully next time! Walked down to the beach and along the coast both mornings. There is a walking path which you can clock up some kms on- it has been recently damaged from the high tides but is still walkable, via the beach and higher ground.

The spa have a 2 for 1 deal right now which is very good value, I had a Balinese massage and facial- highly recommended. High end set up. Would be fantastic to come back for maybe 5 days with a small group of girlfriends for a health retreat.

Lastly, the staff- all, without exception, were fantastic.

Thanks Samata. We genuinely hope to see you again.
