Having spent over 35 years in the travel industry, we have gathered a wealth of experience along the way, which has spanned every continent and sphere of the business, standing us in good stead throughout our careers.


Bali has always been special to us and having stumbled upon the Sidemen Valley a few years back, never did we imagine that it would play such an important part in our lives.  It was just a chance encounter on the rice terraces, that's all it was; and so a new chapter began in our eclectic lives, entitled 'Samanvaya'.


Although challenging and frustrating at times, we proudly opened the doors of Samanvaya to guests at the end of July 2012.  In 2014, we welcomed guests to 'Rice' which adjoins Samanvaya.  It's a concept new to the Sidemen Valley and derived from our wish to blend naturally with this delicate environment.


We are also lucky enough to have a wonderful team to look after ourguests (7 lodges in Samanvaya and in 2015,  4 lumbungs in 'Rice' ), 23 full time and several part time staff, all from the local village.  Their enthusiasm and commitment is in abundance and they are a joy to work with!  Guests and staff alike, for us, they are all VIPs, as one doesn't work very well without the other!


We have continued  with our online travel website                                              and  are currently working on our new project                                      (and its Facebook page) which we hope to enhance as soon as we can as Samanvaya has somewhat consumed us, sorry!  


                                     is our way of giving something back to the community of Sidemen by providing accurate local information for visitors to the area.


Sidemen is a rare breed, still unspoilt, with strong traditionals and stunning scenery and its here, that Samanvaya offers quality accommodation in the heart of the scenic rice terraces.  


We hope to welcome you to Samanvaya and share with us the treasures of this most beautiful corner of Bali.




Samanvaya is managed and operated by                   a company incorporated under the laws of Indonesia.
