Samabe Bali Suites & Villas
Ranked #6 of 54 Hotels in Nusa Dua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 January 2018

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!

Good place but expensive for what you get. We paid high end price but all in all the resort didn’t deliver quality for the high price. Staff very good though. Quality of drinks (alcohol) is very low, at least the drinks included in the all inclusive package. We stayed in a 2 bedroom penthouse pool villa an the view were fantastic. Bathroom amenities of low quality. Food quality is good. Steps to the beach is good exercise, 171 steps to be exact. This could be really good if they upgrade drinks, gardening and bathroom amenities to a higher level.

Samabe gave my wife and I the most amazing honeymoon! It’s hard to not feel like you’re in heaven when the staff, the grounds, and the rooms are immaculate! If you want a dream vacation in Bali, book this place ASAP.

Samabe Staff Shoutouts!

DWI- Aka Mr. President- Butler

Took the time to get to know us and talked with us every time we saw him. He’s a delightful young man with big dreams and I️ hope he reaches them one day!

DEDY- driver/tour guide

Uluwatu tour and Devdan show. DEDY was an excellent tour guide for Uluwatu. He taught us about the historical importance of the Uluwatu Temple, the cultural importance, and got us there safely and comfortably.

RYANO- front desk

Always helpful and accommodating. Speedy check in and made sure our stay was perfect from Check in to check out!

Cynthia from the front desk was amazing with communicating via email prior to our trip. She always promptly responded to my questions and concerns.

Every staff member was courteous, polite, and genuinely smiled. They made us feel like a King and Queen so much so that we had to get used to the level of individual service. We aren’t used to being waited on like this.

We loved the food options at Samabe but understood why some reviews didn’t like the variety. It worked for us! I think i ordered the summer rolls at every meal they were that good. We also took the cooking class and learned how to make nasi goreng. I’ve made it at home a few times for family and friends. They can’t stop raving about how delicious it is!

Thanks again for the memories and we hope to visit again in the future!

This hotel was absolutely amazing and a great value. Our family of 5 stayed in a two bedroom oceanfront penthouse suite with a private pool. The suite was large, clean and beautifully appointed. The butler service was top-notch and better than any butler service we have had in any exclusive hotel or cruise ship in the world. We were given a local cell phone to call our butler at any time for any need. Our butler got to know us and quickly began to anticipate our needs. We purchased the luxury all-inclusive package so we got unlimited 24-hour food and non-alcoholic beverages and one resort “benefit” (for example, a 60-minute massage, a sunset temple tour, a SeaWalking adventure experience, a Balinese dance show, etc) per person per night. So for 10 nights, we could have had 50 massages! We also had unlimited laundry service which was excellent and always turned around in less than 24-hours. The staff in the laundry department even checked the pockets in our clothes before washing and always returned whatever they found (money, headphones, etc). The food at the resort was exquisite and always fresh. The staff is extremely polite and perfectly trained to take care of the guests every need. We highly recommend this beautiful and very well managed resort.
