Spotlight on Samabe Bali Suites & Villas

Built along the cliff tops at the quieter southern end of the Nusa Dua area, Samabe Bali Suites & Villas guarantees a pampering stay on the scenic Bukit Peninsula. Expect warm hospitality and personalized service with an eye for detail, as well as elegant accommodations that balance contemporary comforts with touches of traditional Balinese style. An eight-hectare resort that boasts its own private white-sand beach (accessible via a stairway or a special elevator), this luxurious haven of 81 suites and villas is just a half-hour drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport.

A distinguishing feature of the resort is the raft of benefits guests will enjoy after checking in. All stays at Samabe come with daily breakfast, which can be taken at Rempah-Rempah Restaurant or in the comfort of one’s suite or villa. Other perks include daily afternoon tea, a free-flow of non-alcoholic drinks, a complimentary minibar (refilled each day), 24-hour butler service, and unlimited non-motorized water sports. You can also take things up a notch by spending a bit more to unlock Samabe’s suit of Unlimited Privileges. The bonus add-ons comprise daily cocktail hour; a selection of Balinese, Asian, and Mediterranean dishes that can be ordered at all hours; unlimited laundry service; and one signature activity per day.

As for accommodations, holidaymakers have 39 luxury suites, seven penthouse villas, and 35 standalone villas to choose from. All are exceedingly spacious: the entry-level Ocean Front suites measure in at 135 square meters (those with plunge pools are slightly larger at 180 square meters). Soothing earthy hues in all suites and villas help tired travelers to relax and unwind; the freestanding villas are spread across Samabe’s verdant, manicured grounds; each one features their own pool and outdoor terrace.

Guests at Samabe need not step out to feast on delicious local and international cuisine. The resort’s pan-Asian venue, Rempah-Rempah, is an all-day affair that promises a sumptuous breakfast buffet alongside dishes made to order in the open kitchen; alternatively, an Insta-worthy floating breakfast can be delivered to your private pool. Mediterranean fare and sweeping views of the Indian Ocean await at Crystal Blue Ocean Grill, where the menu showcases the freshest seafood; the Ring of Fire Pool Bar next door serves up refreshing cocktails and snacks. With a quirky name derived from “tea”, “jamu” (traditional Indonesian herbal drinks), and “coffee”, Te Ja Co Lounge & Bar offers a variety of drinks and local bites. Ideal for special occasions, the Samabe Cave Dining experience involves an 11-course degustation dinner taken in a natural beachside grotto.

After a day of active pursuits, nothing beats a deeply relaxing massage. The on-site Galangal Spa has two private treatment rooms with an outdoor sunken tub and shower area. Other activities offered to in-house guests range from catamaran sailing excursions and camel rides on the beach to woodcarving workshops and cooking classes.

If you’re looking for a place in Bali to tie the knot, Samabe offers a solid lineup of wedding venues to suit everything from intimate ceremonies to larger blowouts. Engaged couples will get to exchange vows at an ocean-view villa, the clifftop Pearl Chapel, the private beach or in the oceanside cave; another option is the Rempah-Rempah Restaurant, where it’s possible to book out the garden, indoor terrace, and main dining room in their entirety. Accommodating up to 500 guests, Taman Barong-Barong encompasses an 8,000-square-meter lawn across two levels, making it the perfect setting for an alfresco celebration to remember for life.
