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.
Be aware that pets are not allowed inside the property . We love the animals and we as well own pets , but as there are often guests with babies , asthma allergies ,scared of dogs , or not especially animal friendly ,we would like from ourside to show our respect towards them .
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.
Sofia is a great host! From the moment we checked-in to the moment we checked-out, she was only a text msg away from answering any of our queries. She also gave us a couple of great recommendations of places to go since it was our first time in bali. As for the villa, it was beautiful and very spacious. It has got almost whatever you will need. Just a pity that we did not get to chill out more often in the villa since we were out early everyday. Nevertheless, it was a great stay as it lived up to all the previous positive reviews!
Accueil au top par son mari, Sofia ne pouvant pas être là car nous sommes arrivés un peu tard a cause du trafic. La villa est superbe et reposante. Sofia nous a conseillé des restos et endroits très sympa. L'endroit est très bien placé et a proximité du centre de Semyniak, si vous louez un scooter tout est plus facile, n'hésitez pas à leur demander car le notre est arrivé 10 min après notre arrivée.
It was one of the best trips I've ever had! The listing is exactly the same as it is in pictures. Sofia was the best host one could ever asked for! She recommended to us alot of places to head to and we had Gusti, one of her drivers to bring us around as well. She made an effort to come by to say hi when we arrived and also rushed out of a wedding she was attending to say goodbye to us.
Her warm welcome extended to buying us groceries to cook for the next morning as well.
Trust me, you will never regret staying over at this villa. It's a slight walk from the main road but I think it's definitely fine as the neighbourhood felt really safe as well. We weren't worried about getting robbed or anything. Thank you Sofia, we will definitely be back for more! :)
First of all we would agree that the villa was exactly what was posted. Sofia was a great host, she provided us endless recommendations on places to go, she even helped us to book a taxi and even extend her farewell before we left Bali
The villa is awesome, bed was so comfortable to sleep in, a big kitchen to cook our breakfast, a wifi that lets us connects and of cause the pretty swimming pool. Everything was all so great that make us loss of words.
It's our pleasure to have us at your villa and thank you for taking good care of us
We sincerely thank our hosts Sofia and Fabrice. From the beginning to the end , they helped us a lot , answered all our questions and gave us lots of tips in Seminyak . We were very well received. The house is beautiful , well decorated , very clean, very well equipped and well located . We had everything we need , from the fruit basket, breakfast , local phone card, everything was more than perfect. The garden and pool are very nice. A big thank you to Siti their housekeeper . We will return as soon as we can ! Thank you for everything !
Beyond expectations, we are touched by Sofia's dedication to care for her guests. She may be on the other end of the earth but she will make sure you have settled in okay.
We have had the pleasure of meeting Fabrice who welcomed us warmly and introduced us to our now favourite babi guling and on our departure, Sofia was there to bid us a fond farewell.
The villa and its rooms are exactly as in the pictures. Everything was thought of to cater to guests comfort and convenience from provision of basic food items like bread pasta fruits milk even little cupcakes just to name a few, to kitchenware and spices for cooking.
There were toiletries and books and DVD movies for entertainment. Also I counted more than 10 electrical sockets to impress the gadgety folks.
Thank you Sofia and Fabrice! We will see you again
About the Host, Sofia
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:-)
