Nestled into the picturesque Sidemen Valley, Samanvaya Luxury Resort and Spa is surrounded by rice fields, rolling hills, tropical forests, and authentic temples and cultural sites. With traditional architecture sympathetic to the region and an emphasis on open, connected living, Samanvaya introduces guests to an exotic, breathtaking experience of Bali.
Eleven separate villas providing Sidemen’s best accommodation have been meticulously designed for comfort, privacy, and views to the surrounding area. All rooms have Balinese style open or semi open living and sleeping arrangements with open air bathrooms featuring indoor landscaping, outside relaxation areas, and combined views of either the rice terraces, swimming pool, or lush gardens. Samanvaya is designed for you with luxury, relaxation, and privacy in mind.
Celebrating the eclectic and authentic flavours and natural beauty of the Sidemen valley, guests dining at The Rice Barn restaurant can experience renowned Indonesian cuisine alongside international dishes, with a strong focus on fresh, locally sourced, and in-season ingredients. The Rice Barn restaurant’s craftsmanship and detailed bamboo structure is a feast for the eyes, with its open air structure cocooning you whilst still also retaining a connection to the surrounding gardens and rice fields beyond.
Our open air bar has spectacular views from the swimming pool beyond and out over the rice terraces, presenting the perfect opportunity to enjoy a casual meal or sunset cocktails crafted from Indonesian ingredients. We also offer crisp wines and local beers to savour whilst watching the sun set and the day draw to an end.
Relaxation and rejuvenation come naturally when you are immersed in the beauty and tranquility of Samanvaya. At our signature Ananda Spa we personally craft each treatment and therapy to address your specific needs. Step from the luxury of your villa and escape into an indulgent spa focusing on natural therapy and well being.
Samanvaya also offers a truly inspiring and unique Chakra massage and yoga, performed by Mangku Mastra (our holy man/priest). Mangku is a healer and also a yoga and meditation teacher. The Chakra massage is designed to open the seven main energy centres of the body, using herbs and oils especially created by Mangku. This is an unforgettable spiritual and physical journey.
