The Samata Hotel


Sunrise salutation, welcome to morning in paradise. Reverently we await the dawn as the dramatic orange, subtle peach, and astounding pinks emerge in the fading indigo, the sun’s fiery gold much anticipated by those greeting the new day in Bali. Fishermen gather their nets in a time immemorial ritual awaiting the morning catch on the sparkling black volcanic beach sand. Women and children, eager for nature’s daily bounty gather, echoes of quiet chatter rise to the sky as the blue lightens and brightens ushering in the morning.

The Indian Ocean stretches endlessly to the horizon, white tipped waves dancing in the emerging sunlight. Sanur is slowly awakening and the joy of a new dawn celebrated in Bali is inspirational. In quiet reflection, we share in the miracle of the moment. Some are placing the small boxes woven from banana leaves filled with rice offerings and orange mums; many stretch in the familiar poses of yoga, indulge in morning walks, or dreamy contemplation.


The fishermen load their treasures from the sea heading for market. And we quietly walk along the variegated greens of the rice fields to our sanctuary at the Samata, Sanur’s luxury boutique hotel and exclusive resort retreat. Samata is unique in its concept and design. It’s 10 villas offer stunning views to the sea, the distant shores and low volcanic mountains rising from the coast. Integrated into the natural beauty of the neighboring fields of rice, Samata offers the opportunity to experience an authentic retreat resplendent with three dramatic pools, a captivating atmosphere dedicated to relaxation, rejuvenation, revitalized and energizing fitness and healthy lifestyle in luxury and perfection. Honeymooners and couples seeking a romantic getaway, and families seeking to reconnect without schedules and distractions, will enjoy the tranquility and peaceful beauty of Samata. Arranging excursions and transport to explore Bali’s wonders is made easy by the friendly staff eager to help guests optimize their stay.


Each spacious villa, one to four bedroom luxury, has been individually designed with attention to beauty and leisure, honoring the distinct Balinese cultural style and incorporating the natural elements of wood, water, stone, and vegetation. Every amenity has been considered including a privacy plunge pool, outdoor en villa dining area with your personal valet service, refreshment refrigerator, and small gazebo for meditation, reflection, reading, or dreaming.

A fitness center that rivals professional gyms anywhere offers a fitness trainer, weights and cardio machines, and (truly) a boxing ring!
