Sidemen | Superior

The Samanvaya is a charming boutique resort in the Sidemen hills, providing high-quality villa accommodation with some tasteful luxury details. To stay here is to experience the Bali from times past: a peaceful destination where travelers come to unwind and reflect on the country’s spirituality away from the rush and noise of modern life.

Samanvaya, which translates as ‘harmony’, maintains a peaceful balance with the environment; the architecture of the villas (rolling thatched roofs and sympathetically designed bamboo frames) means that each has a panoramic view over the rice fields, and yet doesn’t impose upon the landscape. Lush tropical gardens have been gently cultivated from the forested hillside, surrounding the resort in its own Shangri-La, and the infinity pool and jacuzzi are gorgeous places to relax with a picture-perfect prospect of the valley below.

The interiors are simple and cosy; dark wooden walls and pale bamboo furnishings surrounding plush, four-poster beds, intimate living areas complete with snug armchairs and hints of tropical colour brought in from the gardens beyond. The private terraces are kept hidden by a curtain of greenery, which helps retain a true sense of privacy while still allowing for uninterrupted views.

Massage treatments at the Ananda Spa and yoga on the terrace are the perfect ‘icing on the cake’ of a stay heavy on the wellness-factor and, feeling virtuous, you can then treat yourself to a meal at the Lambu Biru or arrange for private dining in your villa where you can enjoy an evening drink while watching the sunset – ideal for honeymooners or anyone seeking a little seclusion.
