The Samata Villa Sanur is only 40 min away from the airport, they offer complimentary airport transfer.
This resort is amazing and I love how the staff greeted and served every guest in an extremely accommodating, polite and compassionate.
I stayed 2 nights in an Ocean view Suite, my room was huge, big and comfortable bed, spacious bathroom with separate bath, rain shower and double sink. There is table in the balcony where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee while watching the amazing sunrise view.

Upon checking in they advise that they have free shuttle to the Sanur area if I would like to go shopping or go to the beach, I didn’t get a change to do those since I really enjoyed just relaxing in the resort, this is very quiet peaceful resort, you definitely enjoy their 3 swimming pools or you can try their spa as they have an expert therapist on staff that will help your body to relax.

The resort has a fully equipped gym with a boxing ring and a personal trainer on site. Also they have a tennis court and they offer a tennis coach to give you lessons if you are inclined.

I had all my meals in Zenso restaurant, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, what I love about this restaurant is they specialize in organic and healthy food. I of course had to indulge my palette with really delicious Indonesian food during my stay as well.
All my food was served freshly cooked, I love their healthy drink list, the Detox water was very refreshing.

Excellent resort, highly recommended!

I will surely come back to this place with my friends and family next time.

Of course we do not know if the people in Samata are the nicest, but it's really our impression. We lived in this resort for 14 relaxing days in the One-bed villa. There is only one of it and it has a small separate pool directly in front of a large ricefield. There are walls around and you feel like in a small castle. The privacy is perfect.

But once more, the first point to mention, is the friendly staff of the Samata family. All of them were so nice, helpful and attentive to everything we asked for. They live what the name of the hotel chain suggests: "Lifestyle retreats".

The resort has much more to experience: A great selection of food. You have everyday the choice between many indonesian or international menus. Individually cooked. The breakfast is not a buffet which is boring after some days. You have a three course menu with many choices to combine. Therefore we had in our 14 days many different starts to a new day.

The resort is north of Sanur in short distance to the center. It's a free service of the hotel to bring you by car to this Sanur center when ever you wish. Transportation from and to the international airport Denpasar is a further included service.

Beside our intention to relax, we used the resort as a starting point for excursions to the interesting places of Bali, like the volcanoes, different tempel sites, handicraft shops and riceterraces. Sanur is a good starting point. You can arrange at the lobby a car with driver and they organize it reliable. Spa, massages, fitness room are available and courses in Yoga or Balinesian cooking are possible, too.

All together, the 14 days in the Samata were really a very satisfying experience in healthy and relaxing lifestyle. And this in the middle of the loud and sometimes crowded surrounding of Bali. The flying time from Europe were endless 15 hours. But it was worth the effort. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

By the way, we have no shares of the hotel chain nor are we relatives to somebody there. We are just very happy to made the experience we mentioned above.

Room Tip: For a couple take the One-bed-villa if available

The place is located in secluded area, even though its only few hundred of mtrs from main road.
+Staffs are excellent, they are very helpful and friendly
+all are arranged profesionally
+foods are served best and the test are superb
+it has 3 pools exclude each in private villa, and those pools are more than enough to give you pleasant swimming exp
+ extraordinary view, staying in private villa with astonishing view of rice farms Just cross you villa


Minor thing
- the number of staffs are limited and they are working here and there, but as i said they are really helpful and friendly
- pick up arrangement was somehow had mis-communication, they sent driver to international arrival instead domestic, so better upon your departure to confirm with them once again


Overall I would recommend this villa with no doubt to any other colleagues

We loved Samata so much that we returned within 5 months and convinced 16 others (family and friends) to venture with us to celebrate my partners 40th birthday.
They organised a couple of locals to bring their guitars along for the entertainment and a wonderful meal - many of the staff helped with the evening and were all wonderful.
Meals as usual were sublime as was the whole experience
Cannot recommend The Samata highly enough

We arrived the resort at 10:00 PM and the reception was nice and warm. They provided excellent service every day including ordered PIZZA HUT. The location of the resort is east to go to Bali zoo, Bali safari, Ubud and Tegallalang etc. We will choice the Samata resort again when we visit Bali next time.
