Samabe Bali Suites & Villas

What are the Design and Scene Like at Samabe Bali Suites & Villas?

This gorgeous tropical retreat has a private beach, top-notch service, and a comprehensive all-inclusive package. 

Set on 20 acres of gorgeous tropical gardens bursting with kamboja trees and colorful flowers, the Samabe Bali draws travelers who want to get away from it all. The property comprises 81 suites and villas -- all housed in thatched structures with indoor-outdoor designs -- surrounded by lush grounds and soothing lily ponds. Interiors feature a sophisticated combination of contemporary and traditional Indonesian decor, including carved wood details, iridescent fabrics with flower designs, and clean lines throughout. The airy lobby has white walls and floors matched by delicate wooden accents and flower arrangements. Two small front desks with chairs provide personalized attention, and a wooden swing-style couch with expansive views of the grounds offers additional seating.

The property is located atop a cliff, with the gorgeous infinity pool and the grill situated closer to the beach, while the main restaurant, the lounge, and rooms reside higher up. This allows for expansive ocean views from all but four units and most common spaces. Although there are over 150 steps to get to the beach from the top of the property, golf carts are always at hand to shuttle guests between their rooms and the public areas.

Standard rates include tasty buffet breakfasts, plus comprehensive all-inclusive packages are available. These cover all food and drinks, water sports, shows, and wellness treatments.
