It's difficult to give an objective review of the happiest day of our lives, but we have tried to be as level headed as possible in our honest review.
We decided to elope in Bali and Samabe as our venue of choice opting for a beach wedding and private cave dinner. I was helped throughout by Maourin Tannia- who was honestly just sensational in every way. Excellent service and nothing was too much to ask in making our wedding day just perfect. From check in through to every single element of our stay it was nothing short of exceptional. We couldn't have imagined a more stunning location for our beach wedding and the staff went out of their way to decorate it exactly as we requested. The honeymoon suite we stayed in was beyond words and our personal butler Jimmy was amazing! The hotel location was great, nestled along the luxury end of Nusa Dua and offering stunning cliff top views before a gorgeous stair climb down to the long stretch of beach the famous caves for private dining.
Our wedding cake was divine ( the best I've ever tasted) and the dinner served for our private cave 'Power of Love' dinner was awesome. We got a free flow of all non alcoholic beverages all day (their coconut water is amazing) and we also enjoyed extra perks like afternoon tea with champagne- which was a delight.
We couldn't have imagined a more special Balinese location for our wedding and honeymoon night.
The pool was awesome and we were allowed to stay and use the pool and all the free beverages even after we had checked out.
The hotel itself is stunning and spacious. At Breakfast you are treated to several healthy drinks which was awesome.
The only comment for improvement would be in the quality of the ordered breakfast and also the images of the food on the menu. Whilst the buffet offered a plethora of choice, for a 5 star hotel we felt the menu images for ordered items didn't quite resonate 5 star and the offering was lacking slightly. Honestly just a minor gap for improvement though.
We absolutely loved our stay and cannot thank Maourin and the staff at Samabe enough for making our wedding an absolute dream!
One last thing to add is that although this was a perfect and amazing place for our special occasion and although we loved every second there, it is a quieter hotel and lends to those who enjoy some quiet R&R. We personally could only do 2/3 days max of this as we also love being very active, the hustle and bustle and the vibey, dj playing pool on the beach vibe:-). The hotel does offer excursions and watersports which we didn't have time to enjoy.
All in all, you pay high end for this, and if its a special occasion its worth every cent! An unforgettable experience that we will forever cherish!
