This is a very tough review to write because there are so many wonderful aspects and experiences about staying at Samanvaya. And my fear is that mentioning some may make me forget others. First of all the entire place is immaculately maintained. The room is incredibly spacious,

Hi Julian thanks so much for a very detailed and awesome review :) We love it when our guests have this sort of experience with us as we know that the memories will stay with them for a very very long time. As a team we work extremely hard to make this happen and we focus on creating an intimate personal experience for each and everyone one of our travellers. We want Samanvaya and the Sidemen Valley to have a special place in their hearts and to remember the warmth and kindness of the people that live here. Of course the area is stunning and there is lots to do but I personally believe there is something unique and special about the place that just gets under your skin. I am so glad that you and your family had an opportunity to feel this and we look forward to welcoming you back to Samanvaya and Sidemen. Happy travels Tracey

We were worried staying some place without AC in the Bali heat but this was pretty quaint and our favorite of all our Bali places. I knocked off one circle because our ceiling fan never really got going and they should tune them up. I recommend staying in a 1 floor unit. The two

Hi guys thanks so much for taking the time to review us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our spa is very popular with our guests and our restaurant is getting rave reviews. I have asked our maintenance to check ALL the fans in all the rooms and if any are not working properly we will get them fixed - thanks for pointing that out and if we had known we would have fixed it at the time. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your travel around this amazing island. Happy travels and we hope to see you again sometime soon. Kindest regards Tracey

Hi, there are some fabulous walks in the area which is known for it's beauty. Its just like the old Bali of many years ago before lots of tourists, really special! There are many different private tours from Samanvaya all with the staff who are all local, village tours where you can also go to the guides home in the community which is really interesting and personal, market tour or ricefield trekking as well as car tours and mount agung/batur treks. The most popular tour is a scooter tour which is just amazing! You don't have to drive, you go on the back as passenger. It lasts 2 or 3 hrs and you get to see places that you would never see in a car or walking. They are very good experienced drivers and the roads/tracks are very quiet so you feel safe. Very special indeed and very highly recommended as it is a unique experience. Don't worry, the staff at Samanvaya will look after you and if you want, you can contact them beforehand and pre book any activities you would like to do. Have fun!

La traduction google est pas bon, donc je ne suis pas sûr de vos questions, je suis désolé, je ferai de mon mieux pour répondre! Il n'y a pas de nouveaux hôtels construits en vue de Samanvaya. Tous nos établissements disposent de fantastique champ de riz, colline et quelques vues sur la mer, bien que Champak Lodge est restreint car il offre une vue sur les étangs de lotus et de poisson. Nous avons un beau restaurant avec cuisine locale et internationale. L'humidité est à son plus haut à propos de Janvier / Février en fonction de la saison des pluies mais il est plus à l'aise ici que nous sommes dans les montagnes. Réservez directement au samanvaya-bali de recevoir des tarifs promotionnels spéciaux qui ne sont pas disponibles ailleurs.

"The Kenyari room was central and beautiful"
"We stayed in Lotus which is by the pool. Not much privacy. Would go for a room further from the pool next time."
"Room at East side the Bamboo house, Padi Merah, Padi Hitam ( Lumbung) are recommended."
"The Lumbungs are really nice"
"Every room offers an excellent view of the field. Afterall, you're located among the greeneries! :)"
