About Villa Samaki


Villa Samaki is a utterly peaceful holiday retreat perched on the edge of a river valley, surrounding you with nothing but untouched nature yet it is just a short drive to the centre of cultural Ubud. The traditional teak wooden pavilion features a minimalistic, elegant interior design and full length glass doors, giving a great sense of openness and stillness. This combined with 3 luxurious bedrooms create an amazing holiday home on the mystical island of the Gods.

The living area


The traditional living pavilion has a beautiful hard-wooden floor and a high soaring alang-alang roof that functions as a natural air-conditioner while the full length glass doors, sliding open to 3 sides of the pavilion, give you a breathtaking view over the river valley and the infinity pool. The interior design is simple chic featuring hand-carved antique wooden furniture and traditional artwork. There is a stunning ornamented day-bed cushioned with turquoise pillows and a traditional Balinese sofa surrounding a coffee table, creating a nice place to relax with a book or just sit and enjoy the view. There is also a working desk with a music player, a teak wooden dining-table for lovely family dinners and a compact, fully equipped kitchen. Following the circular wooden stairs from the living, leads to a charming loft-style mezzanine, boasting a home theater with a large flat-screen TV and surround-sound speakers.

Outdoor and pool area


The garden is spread out over several layers of tropical land, just like the authentic Balinese rice-paddies. There is the stunning infinity pool surrounded by comfy sun-loungers and there is an alang-alang roofed alfresco dining baléperched on the edge of the river gorge. Walking down the valley, leads past a gazebo with 2 massage beds, for ultimate relaxation with nothing but the sounds of nature in the background.

The master bedroom


The air-conditioned master suite is tucked away in a private stand-alone bungalow. The view from the balcony is just amazing and utterly peaceful. Inside the room is furnished with a stunning canopied king-size bed for a perfect night sleep and a TV with DVD-player for entertainment. The dressing-room features 2 large wardrobe closets and the en-suite bathrooms boasts a large bathtub next to a window overlooking the tropical valley, giving you a unique bathing experience. There are dual washbasins with bathroom amenities and not only an indoors but also an outdoor shower.

The guest bedrooms


The 2 air-conditioned guest bedrooms are found in the back of the living pavilion. Both the rooms have a serene and natural ambiance with a hard-wooden floor and a matching wooden interior design beneath the high traditional roof. There are canopied double beds, antique closets and each room has a private en-suite bathroom boasting a terrazzo bathtub and a relaxing rain-shower.

Staff and services


The staff consists of 4 attentive people, welcoming you with warm Balinese hospitality. There is butler service, daily housekeeping and security in the night.

Around Villa Samaki


The location is just perfect, tucked away in a quiet traditional Balinese village surrounded by untouched nature. The centre of Ubud is very nearby offering great possibilities for exploring the Monkey Forest, cycling through the rice-fields, following art classes, practising yoga and eating healthy organic food at one of the charming cafés.

C'est depuis un chemin étroit bordée de rizières baignées par la soleil que MADE et son équipe nous accueille devant la porte de la villa. Le personnel nous séduit immédiatement, souriant, accueillant, professionnel, nous sommes sous le charme. L'entrée, est très belle et typiquement balinais, le séjour baignée de lumière au travers des stores en bois, le parquet superbe, la pièce est très grande et le mobilier pourtant imposant parait presque petit, une musique balinaise très zen nous accueille un régal. Le jardin en espalier est somptueux orné d'une belle piscine, d'un balé accueillant une salle à manger et d'un petit Balé pour le massage. Les jardiniers entretiennent toute la journée cette merveille et aucune fleur ou feuille n'est oubliée. La nuit 2 gardiens très sympathiques veillent sur notre bien être. Les 2 chambres de la villa sont spacieuses joliment meublées comprenant des salles de bain magnifiques et modernes. la suite parentale située un peu à l'écart de la villa, en contre bas, possède une terrasse surplombant une gorge verdoyante et offrant une vue magnifique la même vue d'ailleurs que depuis l'immense salle de bain, cette suite est vraiment agréable et très belle. La cuisine est savoureuse et préparée avec soin et que dire du service, sans WAYAN que nous remercions une fois encore, elle est à l'écoute, souriante, attachante, élégante on ne peut que l'aimer et la villa SAMAKI sans elle perdrait son âme. Quand au responsable de la villa, Made, nous l'avons beaucoup apprécié, il nous a accompagné tout au long de notre séjour, a veillé sur nous, même dans la rue il était prévenant et nous aidait à traverser les routes pas toujours évidente au vue de la circulation, il nous a conseillé dans nos visites et était toujours disponible même tard le soir, vraiment professionnel il est parfait dans son rôle, il nous a tout organisé du massage excellent, à la réservation de restaurant, au choix de menu dans la villa, un grand merci à lui. Nous avons passé un séjour inoubliable et conseillons vivement cette villa située à 5 minutes en voiture d'UBUD.
