We will be pleased to host you at villa Samadhi and assist you with travel tips once in Bali.
Other Things to Note
As at the villa there is no washing machine available , our housekeeping lady is happy to assist with this service by bringing your clothes at the laudry (for a small local fee that will be shown on the exact receipt that the laudry is charging) .
Our House keeping lady comes daily for almost 2 hours , except Sundays .
Eventhough smoking is not allowed inside the villa we have no problem at all if you want to smoke at the open areas.If you are sitting close by the entrance door please be carefull with the thatched roof as it can easily get on fire.
It will be highly appreciated if you remember once you come out of the pool not to sit sytraight on the bench in front of the TV with a wet bathing suit as the pool contains chemical that bleach and destroy the non water proof cover and the inside sponge.
Check in is after 14:00 and check out before 12:00 , but as the flights can be anytime ( even at night ) , if there is no booking on that day , both check in and/or check out can be flexible.
There is no better way for us the share this good review. Sophia is an amazing host. She's meticulous, clean, enthusiastic, passionate, thoughtful, very friendly, very approachable, very fun and the best of all, we made us feel really safe in Bali. She was always around when we needed anything. When she came in to welcome us, she was so warm and cheerful. She showed us around the villa and made sure we know what she has prepared for us, from the safe box to the fully equipped kitchen with coffee machine and the awesome collection of DVDs that definitely will make late night slouching at the sofa so cosy and homey.
We must say that the villa was very thoughtfully prepared and it really wowed us and It was really clean and comfortable. The pool was definitely a plus point for the villa as it's private, perfect for some sun in the day and night dip full of stars above. And the interior was really nicely decorated. The villa felt safe and private at night.
I would say the location of the villa is in a good distance away from the town area. So we could still hide peacefully in the villa at night.
The only disappointing thing about this trip is that it ended it too early, there were so much more to explore in Bali, if we would have known, we would definitely extend another week.
So as we say to our dear host Sophia, it's not goodbye but it's a see you later! Hope to be back real soon!
We wish to thank you again Sophia for being such a wonderful host and making our first trip to Bali so memorable and enjoyable. Definitely recommend this villa plus the awesome host sophia to everyone!
The villa in seminyak was beautiful! Exactly like the pictures. Sofia was friendly and helpful well before we arrived in bali and beyond! We had the best time here - so peaceful and quiet and private. Would definitely recommend to someone who wants to stay near enough to seminyak but far enough a way from the craziness!
Sofia and her husband were both very warm hosts. Sofia very enthusiastically explained everything about the house and the neighbourhood when she came to welcome us in. Everything is as in the pictures and description. She even arranged a bike for us as promised. Navigating around this area was fairly simple. The house itself was very beautiful and well maintained. The private pool was lovely and the large couch in the living room was our favourite. Kuta, Seminyak beaches were very close by as were all the basic amenities, eateries and shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We'd most definitely recommend it to fellow travellers. A truly relaxing experience! Thanks for a wonderful time!
Sofia has been really helpful all the time! Help renting scooter, showing us the direction, even take us to buy stuff we need. The place is super good, just like the picture! Big clean and well design. Definitely will come back again!!
The villa was fantastic! It's exactly how it is on the pictures, probably even nicer.! It was clean, spacious (very very spacious for 2 persons),and equipped with everything u need (that includes breakfast foods like bread,eggs,cheese,milk,instant noodles etc).We spent many lazy days just chilling by the pool or watching the many DVDs that were available.
Sofia and hubby Fabrice was most helpful giving us tips on where to go and arranging a scooter for us (a scooter is highly recommended to travel around as the villa is a tad bit out of the way).
Sofia arranged a driver Gusti to pick us up at the airport and we ended up booking his transport service for the next few days as he's such a friendly person and knows all the real Balinese hideouts.
All in all, this vacation was fantastic! And Sofia is one of the best hosts I have ever encountered. :) will def stay at the villa again the next time I'm in Bali.
It was really great for my family staying 4nights at Sofia's villa. She was great host and also warm hearted person. The villa was beautiful and located at quite area. If I go back to Bali again, I will stay at least one day at her villa again. Thank you Sofia!
Sofia... Sofia is just too awesome... Meticulous, thoughtful and always willing to advice and share a helping hand. Her years in stayed in Bali certainly paid off as she provided tonnes of helpful advice. As a host, she is probably she is probably one of the best that you can find. Her efficiency and willingness to communicate with us, made our stay more pleasant and wonderful.
Now.. Moving on to her villa. It's exactly like her pictures, cozy, warm and private. She has this gigantic day-bed which eventually acted as my night bed. Her kitchen was big and spacious enough for us to walk, and her combination of having a wood theme provides a rustic and relaxed feel. It is exactly the sort of villa where you will can just sit by the porch, pick up your pen and start penning your thoughts with a cup of whittard in tow. Her bed room is huge, with ample space for resting. It is really perfect for those who needs to be away from the hustle bustle life from the city. Where I came from, this acted like heaven on Jalan Beji Ayu :) Oh yes, most if not all of the drivers we got knows the address pretty well, so no worries about being lost! Am feeling refreshed and looking forward to visit Sofia again in the near future. Perfect for a chilling session or just someone looking to unwind in a gorgeous little setting.
Just to write few lines about who i am:-)
Since 2002 that i decided to live in Bali until now, i work on the fashion industry as a women's footwear designer and manufacturer...Lucky me;-) Well, i actually studied architectural design at first and that was the reason that brought me to Bali in 1999.I have been offered a scholarship from the Indonesian government back then about which i am still thankful, because that one year stay opened many new venues for me and brought me in contact with such a different,artistic,inspirational and rich culture that helped me a lot in what i did afterwards.
Between 2000 and 2002 i lived in U.S were i had 2 Indonesian furniture and interior design Galleries and at the same time i started being involved in designing women's shoes mostly as a passion than a way of living...Even though i had a beautiful business that was every day growing in U.S, my spirit was non stop dreaming of Bali.
End of 2002 i decided to finally follow my heart and move on to my dream island. I was very right:-) Here i could have what i was searching for.Sun,Smiles,Sea,Spas,Spirituality and amazing nature all around the island:-):-) Straight i met my beloved husband with whom we are together since then and we have a wonferful 4 years old daughter. As for my business, i focused on my passion for designing shoes that was in did very creative...
In 2012 my architectural soul woke up again.I challenged myself into turning the inspirational footwear studio of all those years ,from an old basic small home, into a villa.That's how villa Samadhi was born.
It took 9 months of constant work and total reconstruction to achieve the result of the present villa that finished middle of July... I put all the love and energy i had and together with a small team of guys that were very understanding we tried to keep a balance of not too modern ,chill out, tropical estate for the guest to feel relaxed and at home...
I hope you will love it as much as i do:-) Your feed back is valuable:-)
