The location and the villa itself are stunning, you'd pay a fortune for the equivalent in Europe. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful and the manager will book tours for you. The owner of Warung Susu runs a nice tour of the local temples. Definitely go snorkelling / diving to Menjangan island, the snorkelling off the beach in front of the villa is a bit disapointing. Pemuteran isn't a place to go for nightlife but there are a few restaurants further up the beach. Be aware that there is no ATM currently in Pemuteran and the nearest one is a a 45 minute drive away so stock up on cash before you get there. If you eat in the big hotels they will be able to take cards but not the smaller places. Thoroughly recommended.

"Tranquil seaside private villa with beautiful garden”

This private villa is very tastefully decorated and has a great manicured garden with a large seafront. At any time of the day sun and shade are found in the garden with a nice Gazebo, infinity pool and a covered sea-sided breakfast table.

We enjoyed very much the staff managed by Putra, who were available when needed, but never felt like intruding the premises. We discussed with Putra our wishes for dinner, which was served at the dining table surrounded by a beautiful large lotus-pond with many fish who loved to eat the rice we fed them. The quality of lunch and dinner was great.

In the garden a guesthouse above the dining area was used by us as a daybed: with the shuttered windows opended the seabreeze gently blowed over the bed making this the perfect spot to relax and listen to music or read.

The village of Pemuteran is basically one busy main road with many warungs and hotels and a few basic restaurants with good Indonesian food. The traffic is obvious but not disturbing in the open bathrooms, but absolutely not apperant in the garden.

What makes this place so special and definitely worth a stay: the tranquility, the seaside, the staff, but especially the design and decoration of the villa: no sign of the Asian “bling-bling”-style, but built and decorated with materials of Balinese origin.

This spot is especially great to relax and rewind. Day trips in the surrounding area are snorkelling or diving (both beeing very nice) at Menjangan island, watching the sea turle hatchery project and hiking in the national park.

Siamo stati 8 giorni ed e' stato bellissimo.
Il personale e Putra sono stati eccezionali e la villa un paradiso che neanche potevamo immaginare.
La gente del posto sempre sorridente, le meraviglie che abbiamo visto qui e a Jawa hanno completato la più bella vacanza mai fatta.

We stayed 8 days and it 'was great.
The staff were exceptional and Putra and the villa a paradise we could not even imagine.
The locals always smiling, the wonders we have seen here and Jawa have completed the best holiday ever made.

Un soggiorno meraviglioso
La zona di Permuteran e' ancora oggi la zona di Bali meglio conservata, con bellezze naturali mozza fiato e con la gente più vera. Persone gentilissime, bellissime che trasmettono entusiasmo e gioia di vivere. Men...jangan, il Bali Barat, il cratere di Ijan a Jawa, le barche tutte in bambu' dei pescatori locali ma soprattutto queste persone resteranno per sempre nei nostri... cuori. La villa e' un paradiso di bellezza e di eleganza. Fantastica sia per una famiglia con tre figli come la nostra che per amici o coppie che vogliano un nascondiglio esclusivo e di grandissimo gusto. Putra e tutto il suo personale sono il massimo che si possa sperare di trovare. Ottima anche la loro cucina. Amichevoli anche le scimmie che ogni tanto ci facevano visita. Putra si e' davvero comportato da amico. E' un posto dove andare subito, prima che anche questa parte di Bali irrimediabilmente si trasformi.

A wonderful stay
The area Permuteran and is still the best preserved area of Bali, with breathtaking natural beauty and the people are more real. Nicest people, beautiful that transmit enthusiasm and zest for life. Menjangan, Bali Barat, Jawa in the crater of IJEN, bamboo all the boats' local fishermen but most of all these people will remain forever in our hearts. The villa is paradise of beauty and elegance. Great for a family with three children like ours that for friends or couples who want an exclusive hideaway and great taste. Putra and his entire staff are the best we can hope to find. Excellent also their cuisine. Friendlies also monkeys that sometimes we would visit. Putra 'really behaved like a friend. It is a place to go now, before this part of Bali is irretrievably transformed.

“Heaven on earth”

This large villa with pool and an excellent service is to be recommended. It is a little away from a city center, but the staff will get you any transport or excursion that you can dream of be it a visit to the Ijen volcan or snorkling around Menjangan island. The staff's cooking is simply superb. I wished We had stayed an extra day.

We loved the villa and the staff. We enjoyed the meals and the pool in a beautiful garden and really loved the fact that the beach and sea were directly situated opposite the villa. Really value for money, also for families.

“Best relaxing holiday experience!”

This July, we stayed at villa Semadhi with 2 families. We had done a lot of research on the internet last year and booked early as we wanted a care free holiday.

I can say we are very happy with our choice.It was my third trip to Bali and this is by far the best place we have been. The villa and grounds are large and have a wonderfull atmosphere. Putra the manager is great at organizing whatever you need and also great fun. Jero is an excellent cook Each day we discussed what we wanted for dinner and all meals were little events. The staff is very warm and pleasant, You simply feel welcome and at home. Rooms are very clean and I very much enjoyed our huge outdoor bathroom.

We used the boat several times to go snorkeling and fishing. The biorock project in the bay is amazing and excellent for snorkeling. There are nice spots on the beach there to relax and have a drink. On one late return by boat, we had a beautifull sunset. Magical to see the sun going down behind the vulcanoes on Java and watch the mountains from the sea. We will be back .

Amazing PLace!

Just the most beautiful place I 've ever been to! Loved the staff, location, food and the villa itself !! Can't wait to return!

Had an amazing stay at Villa Semadhi with my family, which included 3 teenagers and 2 adults (who behaved like teenagers). The villa itself was beautiful, but what made the stay really memorable were the staff who were nothing less than warm, accommodating and genuinely friendly people. We had in-villa massages, went white water rafting, snorkeling in the villa's boat, had yoga next to the pool... it was absolute heaven! :)

I must say that my stay in Villa Semadhi was like Heaven on Earth. It felt like time had stopped and nature was happy and there was peace in the world. The air was so clear and fresh and everything was beautiful. I loved the bathroom in my suite, it had a live tree inside which was also outside. So pleasant and just nice. I went with four of my friends and we each had our own favourite spot. I loved the little coach on the porch, carved and beautiful where I could rest. My friends loved the apartment above the dining area and they would just sit and watch the ocean. The pool was just right for exercise or just having fun. The staff were incredible and always ready to serve. We had delicious meals out near the ocean or wherever we wanted, cooked to order. A great vacation getaway.
