13 Best Luxury Private Villas in Bali
A tropical paradise in the vibrant Seminyak beach
If you are looking for luxury private villas near the famed beaches of Bali, then look no further than The Samaya Seminyak Bali. Staying at their luxurious accommodations, including their One-Bedroom Pool Villas, also mean that you will be just a few steps away from the vibrant Seminyak Beach. Not only that, you will also have the chance to enjoy relaxing by a full-sized swimming pool, a spacious outdoor area surrounded by tropical gardens and a classic yet chic interior complemented by modern comforts. You will surely get your dream beachfront escapade if you stay at this resort!
Staying at The Samaya Seminyak Bali’s One Bedroom Pool Villa also mean that you will get to experience incredible Balinese hospitality from the hotel staff. During our stay, we had an oversight and forgot to place an order for our in-villa breakfast the following morning. However, our attentive butler came to the rescue, going the extra mile to liaise with the restaurant and ensure that our breakfast was still accommodated. They also helped to provide a beautiful and modern wooden baby cot for our little Aaron, plus they even gave us a unique bag to keep. These small gestures truly make a difference and showcase the genuine care and dedication of the staff.
Indulge in delectable Indonesian cuisine while savouring Bali sunsets
Your stay at The Samaya Seminyak Bali will not be complete without trying out the food from their award-winning Breeze Restaurant. Trust us – the view from there is extraordinary. Tables get booked quickly, so be sure to reserve a slot as soon as you can to get the best seats right in front of the beach. We also recommend to visit the restaurant just in time for Bali’s famous sunsets. Imagine eating good food (make sure to get their pork ribs!) while seeing the sun set over the horizon and the sky gets painted in romantic hues of pink and gold. The experience is just surreal.
Offers a wide array of activities for all ages
Another thing that we love about The Samaya Seminyak Bali is how it provides a friendly atmosphere for all ages. This then makes this resort perfect for your family vacations, as everyone, from the little ones to the adults, feels welcomed and catered to. Kids can keep themselves entertained with the engaging and educational activities available such as fruit carving, kite painting, and coconut leaf art lessons. And all comes at no cost, too! Meanwhile, parents can indulge in arts and cultural experiences such as Balinese dance lessons and cooking classes. They can also relax with a yoga or a spa session right in front of the ocean! Click here for a complete list of the activities you can try at The Samaya Seminyak Bali.

A luxurious private retreat away from the busy Bali crowd
Bali is, without a doubt, a hotspot for tourists. So, if you are looking for a peaceful escape from the tourist-packed areas of Bali, then Sohamsa Ocean Estate is the perfect retreat for you. Nestled atop the Bukit Peninsula, this clifftop property offers a serene and secluded haven, where you can bask in the breathtaking ocean views that seem to stretch endlessly beyond the horizon. With its luxurious villas and private infinity pool perched on the edge of the cliff, Sohamsa Ocean Estate promises an unforgettable experience.
Beautiful private villas perfect for large groups
Sohamsa Ocean Estate is far from your usual retreat as it offers not one, but two magnificent clifftop villas, namely Villa Soham and Villa Hamsa. With a total of nine spacious bedrooms, Sohamsa is the perfect getaway for large groups looking for comfort and luxury in Bali. You can actually even celebrate your dream Bali wedding here!
Both villas at Sohamsa Ocean Estate are furnished with modern amenities that will make everyone’s stay truly incredible. And let’s not forget about the stunning interiors! On top of the luxurious bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, and dining rooms, Sohamsa Ocean Estate also boasts a gym, steam room, and sauna – basically, everything you need for a luxurious stay. You will literally never run out of things to do while at Sohamsa! There are also plenty of living spaces for everyone to chill and hang out, and some even have lovely ocean views.
Exceptional care from the lovely villa staff
Of course, our stay at Sohamsa Ocean Estate would not be as lovely if it were not for their very helpful and friendly staff. We are especially thankful to our villa manager, Pak Bayu, and his team of 13 amazing individuals who went above and beyond to ensure that our every need was met. They struck the perfect balance between being available whenever we needed them, and providing us the space to relax and enjoy our vacation. Pak Bayu even assisted us with money exchange, purchasing diapers for our little ones, and stocking up on additional drinks and snacks. Additionally, the villa provides three butlers available from morning until 11 pm, who are just a phone call or text away.
And, let’s not forget about the villa’s private chef, who deserves high praise for his delectable culinary creations, both western cuisines and Indonesian dishes. Working with him was also very seamless, all we had to do was pre-purchase our groceries and order from the menu, and the chef took care of the rest. The cost for his service was also quite reasonable, with only a small 20% handling fee added to the price of the groceries. Overall, the exceptional service and attention to detail provided by the staff at Sohamsa Ocean Estate made our stay all the more memorable.
If you are visiting Sohamsa Ocean Estate with a large group, we highly recommend ordering the poolside BBQ from their menu. The grilled fish was incredibly decadent, the jumbo prawns and squids were fresh and succulent, and the beef tenderloin and striploin were cooked to perfection. The sambal matah was also topnotch, you can pair it with almost everything!
