The space

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. is at guest's expense).

“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.”

and another...

We had our two kids and parents with us so this villa was perfect with the 2 king rooms and the 1 room with 2 twin beds. We enjoyed the large pool, the privacy, the beautiful garden and the decor. The only downside we found was the open shower area in one of the bathrooms although it was something cool to experience. It was always warm in that bathroom and had to make sure to burn the mosquito coils and spray in the evening as well as to always keep the door closed to ensure no frogs or other creatures came to visit the bedroom. Eka, who takes care of the villa, is so sweet and is ready to help! We asked her to make dinner for us one night (nasi goreng, spring rolls, chicken satay, and sweet and sour chicken) and everything was DELICIOUS! Overall, I would stay here again for sure!

Response from Glenys & Henry:
Thanks Priscilla! Yes, open bathrooms are the norm in almost all villas in Bali, which is why we do set up coils and insect spray in the bathrooms and point to that in our "Welcome to your Bedroom" info sheet. Now you know where/who we are, we'd love you to come back for a longer stay. cheers!

Absolutely great, spacious villa, perfect for a family with 2 or 3 children. Pool is huge with shallow area. Good staff, basic but good breakfast, very clean. Location is perfect next to Canggu Station, walking distance from the supermarket and several good restaurants (and coffee!!). 3 min motor bike ride to Finn's beach club and other very nice Canggu restaurants and shops nearby. Communication with glenys and henry was very smooth and we loved the extensive guide they sent us beforehand. Will definitely go again, thanks!

The villa is AMAZING, great spot a true gem. As is Eka our host she is a godsend and nothing is too much trouble she really made our holiday stress and worry free. She arranged our scooters, made us whatever we wanted for breakfast (a small cost for the extra ingredients for some mornings but well worth it try the pancakes or traditional breakfast for a treat!!). Rang shops for my Mum to find some glasses she wanted , arranged a tour for us just a gem My Mum wanted to bring her home they became such great friends !! We recommend the villa to anyone heading to Bali and looking to stay close enough to the action but outside of the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. ( I was dubious as i enjoy Seminyak but once you walk around the area and no one hassles you, no one trys to sell you anything its amazing ) Some great cafes and restaurants close including La Finca, Milk and Madu, Balifornia republic and Savage Kitchen, Dandelion etc . As well as Canggu Deli (Literally behind the Villa not that you would know) and Canggu Club.(Great if you have kids with the water slides 10 pin bowling etc) Finns is a 10 minute walk (we found the beach bar next door more our style with cheap beers and the beats from Finns in the background) Again no one hassles you at the beach either no offer of massages or hair plaits or watches watches!! It was however only a 10 minute scooter to Seminyak or Echo Beach in the other direction and 20 minutes up to Tanha lot and Nirwana Golf course The pool and Bale hut were the perfect spot to chill, they were so well utilised and really made the holiday for our family of 5 adults that much more relaxing (the pool is big enough there were timed races at one point !!) I don't think the TV went on the entire trip although the AC living room was great for them humid Bali times!! The small library was also a wonderful treat !! The rooms are well appointed and the beds huge in the main rooms !! Everything was smooth as silk and a credit to the owners and staff Would have no hesitation is recommending this Villa

Sarah, Joe and "Mum"/family - we're delighted that you're delighted! We are firm believers in training and treating our staff well and it pays off, as all our guests want to take them home! Do think about us (and/or our Villa Rajawali next door) next time you plan a Bali visit. Cheers! Glenys & Henry

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 are an Australian/Dutch-American couple who've lived in Asia for over 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 them to other caring and responsible people. Our Bali-based managers are Australian, 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.
Both villas are on Jalan Subak Sari, Canggu, Bali (not Kuta). Both are on social media as villas samsara rajawali - so don't hesitate to friend us to find out about special promotions.

RELAX, REKINDLE, REFRESH! at Villa Samsara and Villa Rajawali.
