at Villa Samsara
Villa Samsara is an identical twin sister villa with Villa Rajawali, next door: sparkling and spacious villas in Canggu, away from the madding crowd of Kuta, but within 10 minutes' drive of Seminyak’s shopping and nightlife. Situated 50 meters off the road, each villa provides a safe and secluded tropical environment for guests who want an elegant and sophisticated, but relaxed Balinese experience. There are 3 spacious bedrooms accommodating 6 guests (inc. children). The villa size is around 2,500 square feet, with a similar area for pool & garden. A bridged reflection pool greets you after entering through the traditional doors and a delightful garden bale for cocktails or dining completes the tropical picture.
The villa features a sparkling 16 meter long private swimming pool, a bale/gazebo, an elegant living/dining area, modern kitchen and three large stylish bedrooms/ensuites all with aircon, ceiling fans, generous wardrobes and work desks, if you have to stay in touch with the office. We include Wifi, and 2 large TV/DVD's, iPod dock/stereo and an assortment of books, puzzles, cards and games.
Included is a daily tropical/continental breakfast: juice, fruit, toast & spreads, eggs, tea & coffee. Filtered water is available all day. We also provide a single vehicle airport transfer each way for maximum 6 pax and luggage. (Extra vehicle for overflow suitcases, prams, surfboards, golfclubs etc. will be at guest's expense).
The villa has beautiful tropical gardens, fragrant with frangipani. We are located a 3 minute walk from the Canggu Club and 2 min walk to the Canggu Deli Station, with restaurants close by.
$288 USD per night, minimum 3 nights, maximum 1 month. Longer term rates negotiable.
We have 20 outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor and only listed with Airbnb recently. So, we have few reviews yet but here's an excerpt from guest's emails plus you'll find photos of comments from our guest book in the photo gallery:
“Thank you for everything. We were beyond happy and even the Bali "regulars" in our party were impressed. They were very happy about the Trattoria next door. I enjoyed the walk to Kerobokan and the beaches. Almost perfectly wheelchair accessible. Beautiful, quiet, perfect place to stay. Can't wait to return.”
First of all I have to tell you that I have never stayed I such a wonderful spot...everything is wonderful. Your staff is attentive and friendly. The neighborhood is charming and the walk to Brawa beach is INDEED interesting LOL."
So, please book with us - we'd love to have you as guests.

We have a Australian and Balinese manager who reside in Bali but they will only drop in upon or just after check-in to see if all is ok or if you need any local information.

Villa Samsara was simply awesome! Huge pool, spacious rooms and excellent location too! We stayed here for 7 nights, enjoyed every minute of it. The maid, Eka was very helpful too, attending to our needs as much as possible. If you want a place where you can just sit back and relax, you can't go wrong with Villa Samsara. Thanks Glen and Henry for letting us experience your wonderful villa. Should we decide to holiday in Bali again, we would certainly consider your villa
We had a lovely and relaxing stay at Villa Samsara, felt like being home. Very well organized, excellent facilities. Outstanding friendly and helpful staff, good location.
We can honestly recommend to stay here. If we have a chance to come back to Bali again, we will definitely try to stay in Vila Samsara.
About the Host, Glenys & Henry
We are an Australian/American couple who've lived in Asia for nearly two decades. We're very well travelled and understand what savvy travellers want when seeking accommodation. Our two villas in Canggu, Bali, are our oasis, but we rent the to other caring and responsible people. Our Bali-based managers are Australian/Balinese, and the villas are run to very high international standards. They assist guests upon arrival along with our lovely staff. We love good food and our guest guide has recommendations.
