An all-inclusive luxury Bali resort offering total personalised privileges
The southernmost tip of Bali, arguably one of the most breathtaking islands in the world, is a sanctuary of eyefuls. As we prepared for our flight to this paradise, we just had to do one more look at how beautiful the island is in photos just so we could increase the hype even more. And there they were, vast views of the Indian Ocean, water as blue as they could get and white sand beaches. We couldn’t believe our luck in getting to fly here, and even better, for our first time, getting the chance to stay in a resort that basically sums up all the best things Bali has to offer.
Samabe Bali Suites & Villas at the Nusa Dua area shines with nearly a hundred accommodations that have their own asset to go crazy about. The fine combination of tranquillity and glamour it exudes just stands out and the added modern touches make it a one-of-a-kind find in this side of the island. While the views are clearly enough to lure us into its premises, the total pampering services, on the other hand, were the excuse we needed to keep ourselves here for a longer time.
Unique privileges await guests here and they are inclusive of a butler service and welcome amenities together with entertainment and spa treatments. For us, this sounded like the perfect way to spend our Bali getaway. Samabe Bali Suites & Villas truly is everything we dreamt of for our first visit in this serene Indonesian island!

Feeling more adventurous? Then make your way to Ring of Fire Pool Bar offering impressive selections of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, premium brand spirits and exclusive cocktails. The best part is you get to enjoy all of that just by the pool where you can also enjoy more amazing views of the ocean.
Go on an exotic date inside a cave!
Having a meal inside a cave may not be everyone’s cup of tea when it comes to having a romantic date, which makes it an extra special deal for those who do decide to go for it. A walk down the stairs from the resort will take you to the private white sand beach which is the main gateway to the whimsical cave. In the afternoon, take part in the Samabe high tea, considered the most popular afternoon activity in Bali, in the beach cave. Munch on various sandwich selections including smoked salmon and salsa verde, salted beef and pickles and cheese and chutney along with your choice of tea, coffee and Balinese champagne, all the while witnessing the ocean do its magic.
All the way through dinner time, you can see over a hundred lanterns and candles light up as you feast on four courses of sumptuous seafood dishes and hot barbecues which are a nice treat to the chilly atmosphere provided by the ocean and cave combined.
Partake in the resort’s daily activities including batik painting, cooking, water sports and a lot more!
Samabe Bali Suites & Villas continues to make a name not just from giving the most innovative accommodations, amenities and guest services the island has probably ever seen, but for giving attention to really attending to the guests’ personal activity needs. Among the signature activities for the Unlimited Privileges package are a 60-minute massage, the sea-walker, 60 minutes of Thalasso Aquamedic Pool, Batik painting, Balinese costume dressing, a shared sunset tour to the sea temple of Uluwatu, an Indonesian Rijsttafel dinner experience, body scrub and sunset foot reflexology.
In addition, you can also try your hand at making traditional Balinese dishes in a cooking class, get involved in water activities like kayaking, windsurfing, catamaran sailing, scuba diving and fishing. On land, there’s also plenty of things you can do to keep yourself active even while on a holiday. How about taking a scenic bike ride through the lush tropical rainforest or the picturesque coastline of southern Bali? Some sports enthusiasts will also be thrilled to know about the golf and tennis opportunities in the property!
Finally, a visit to Bali won’t be as rewarding without learning more about the local culture. Fortunately, Samabe offers a variety of cultural activities to excite the curious vacationist in you. Learn the delicate Balinese dance, how to make cultural decorations, making a traditional Balinese offering for the Gods, the special art of wood carving as well as fruit and vegetable carving.
#1-Breathtaking cliff-top location
While Bali is known to many for its irresistible tropical beaches and greenery, it also marks itself as one of the very few places in Asia with jaw-dropping cliffs that promise no less than A-mazing views of the waters. Located on one of the beautiful cliffs of the southern side Nusa Dua, Samabe guarantees an unobstructed view of the Indian Ocean. And we’re talking not just one or two viewing places within the property, we mean ALL 81 suites and villas of the resort!
#2-Privacy at its finest
Set on a spacious 8-hectare land, Samabe is definitely one of the biggest resorts in Bali in terms of land area, which is naturally why a world of activities await any guest here. However, that space is a privilege to many as there are only less than a hundred accommodations in the resort which obviously limits the people in the resort. This means less crowded amenities and an added feel of being on your island!
#3-Personalised butler and guest services
You read that right! You will have your OWN butler during your entire stay. We saw ours took care of almost everything we needed right from unpacking! Samabe has taken guest services to the next level with that as guests don’t need to wait for long hours before getting something done. That definitely takes out a load of stress from you so you can simply enjoy. After all, you are on a vacation!
