After traveling around south east asia for almost 2 months i really needed a place to relax and recharge myself, well, I've found it in this magnificent hotel hidden between the hills and rice fields in Sidemen, every room has great views, clean and studied so you can leave the modern world outside your door, no tv just the quiet...

We loved our stay here, the room was beautiful (Jepun). The pool was really nice and so was the restaurant. The staff were all really helpful and polite. The frogs here are a little noisy but we didn't mind them. I wanted to have a look at them but wasn't able to see them in the pond and I think...

First, Sidemen is a hidden gem in Bali. And Samanvaya is definitely a jewel of a find. We stayed in a one-room bungalow, tasteful traditional timber design and construction. The windowed doors folded back to open the balcony onto a beautiful garden. The property is nestled into the hillside with spectacular views across the valley. Especially dramatic from the infinity...

We checked out all resorts in Sidemen and surroundings. The room was beautiful and made of Bamboo (bungalow room). The bathroom is spacious with fresh bath and big shower. Pool view is an infinity pool with great views over the rice fields and little sheds. Really Bali feeling. And then the COOK: the best in East Bali! The breakfast is...

Thank you very much for your review and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and would recommend to fellow travellers.

Unlike Kuta and Ubud is the Sidemen valley peaceful and yet undiscovered. A great area to enjoy the real and pure Bali. The Samanvaya hotel has an amazing view over this purity. At the moment you open the curtains in the morning you see an astonishing view over the ricefields. This, in combination with the great staff, the high quality...

This is the most beautiful hotel in Bali. The whole Sideman valley is incredibly serene and one of my happiest memories of the trip is sipping a beer in the infinity pool looking out at the rolling green hills. Upon arrival we were greeted with cold towels and drinks whilst we checked in. The check in staff were incredibly helpful...

Stayed in Jepun 1 - the standard room at samanvaya. Room was clean, quiet, and had a lovely pool view. Hotel staff arranged a great rice paddy trek and transport to ubud for us at reasonable prices.
