Dear Jane,

I just had to write to you and say how heavenly your villa is! We were overwhelmed when we first arrived by the beauty and attention to detail of every aspect of the property. We love the staff and have already been snorkeling thanks to the wonderful boat and captain. The pool is divine and everything has been a treat.

We look forward to the time ahead but couldn't go another day without sharing with you how much we appreciate your creating this wonderful place that we can experience.

My parents join me in thanking you as well.

All the best,

Absolute Bliss
We stayed at Villa Semadih for four nights in January, our travelling party consisted of two families with five children ranging in age from 8 years to 15 years old.

My family and I have travelled to Bali many times and stayed in a few villas, Villa Semadih is the cleanest, best managed villa we have seen so far.

All the rooms were large and bright, we put an extra mattress in one room and it fit easily.

I thought the photos on the web looked great, in real life the villa is even better, everywhere you look is a Balinese grace and charm that can't be captured on film or described in words.

Twice we had an adorable little monkey come to visit us, at first we were concerned for him when we noticed a nasty wound on his shoulder. That was until we noticed he only had one arm and one leg, old wounds that are long healed he scrambled up the trees and sat on the wall so well behaved and patient as we fed him bananas. I hope if you see him he is well received at the villa and given the help and respect he surely deserves.

We walked up towards Reef Seen to see the turtle hatchery late one day and got soaking wet in the rain so decided to stop at Matahari Beach resort for a hot drink. It was good to have a look around the resort and compare it to 'our' villa, we all agreed our villa was much nicer!!

My daughter turned 13 years old while we were at the villa, all she wanted for her birthday was a cheese cake and I had asked the villas owners if this could be ordered, but never got around to doing it. We were given a wonderful surprise when an amazing cheese cake was presented to her on the night, compliments of the villa.

We arranged a snorkeling day trip to Menjangan island through the villa, a perfect day where everything had been thought of.

The manager took us on a walk to local temples, we did day trips to the hot springs and Buddhist Monastery.

Food at the villa was so good and reasonably priced that we didn't venture out to eat, every meal was delicious.

The staff were gracious, friendly and unobtrusive, the manager was lovely and left us with the feeling that he truly wanted us to have a wonderful stay at the villa, not just because it was his job, but because he cared.

Thank you for our magical four days, we will definitely be back, but for longer next time.

"It was the Pearl of all places in Bali"

This was my first but I hope not the last time at Villa Semadhi. I was there with a little group of friends three teenagers and 5 oldies 35-60. We all loved the place and the time there - very nice staff and a the garden is wonderful - My plans for the future is that next time I have friends visiting me in Bali we will go north to Villa Semadhi for some lovely days. Why not a Wedding Party... we make plans.

Dear Bernard and Jane,
Merry Christmas!!!

We had the pleasure to stay in Villa semadhi in October.

I forgot to send you an email to tell you that evrything was wonderful and thank you so much for the villa and all services!
The staff was very nice and helpful!!! Stay in your villa that was the best moment of our trip!
That was beautiful, clean, relaxing, AMAZING! :)
I will give your adress to whose would like to go to Bali!
So thank you so much and please tell thanks to the manager Putra for his help, and the cooker (a woman) and all people who were there with us!

Back in Holland and wearing the office suit and tie again !
Can we compliment you with a wonderful villa, tasteful interior and last but not least friendly staff at Villa Semadhi!

After a long journey we felt at home instantly. Putra managed well and fixed a few arrangements upon our request (think wines) and we stocked up the refrigerator in the outdoor kitchen. Kadek and Ketut are such friendly people that you want to take them home with you. The BBQ arranged for the surprise party celebrating a number of birthdays was priceless. The diners for 11 persons that the cook prepared outside the menu (i.e. barracuda / king prawns / sate bbq) were mouthwatering. We have tried and enjoyed the local restaurants Susu and Badini as well as facilities of adjacent resorts Aneka and Matahari with a wonderful Spa. We have rented motor-scooters, enjoyed scuba diving with ‘searovers’ located at Adi Assri and went on a snorkeling and diving expedition to Menjangan Island. Hiked with the guide through the National Park and bought eggs at the local supermarket J

Due to low humidity compared to the south and middle of Bali the temperature was high but comfortable which was an eye-opener for us and all in a beautiful setting with the green and steep mountains in the background and sea in front of you.

A place to remember and to recommend to anyone who likes to relax and enjoy holiday deluxe style!

We stayed with a group of friends at Semadi in October last year and had a brilliant time.

It was a relief to get out of the crazy congested south of Bali. Pemuteran Bay is beautiful and very relaxed. Nobody is bothering you on the beach and the locals are very friendly. A trip to Menjangan Island is a must, but we also enjoyed the snorkelling at the reef project. A few strokes from the beach you are already above the corals.

We loved the huge outdoor bathrooms and the bedroom in the pavilion is a beauty with great views. Beds were good, much better then at other places we stayed before. Staff is perfect, very friendly and the girls have great smiles. The villa is a wonderful place to be. Most of the time we just stayed there, relaxed, had a few beers looked at the sea and talked. Would not mind going back there.

Semadhi heeft onze verwachtingen ver overtroffen. We hebben echt super genoten van de rust, het prachtige zwembad en het weergaloze uitzicht. Wat begon met één week is uitgegroeid tot bijna 14 dagen.

Doordat we fietsen hadden gehuurd voelden we ons ook wat vrijer om de naaste omgeving te ontdekken. Op ons eigen moment konden we ergens gaan eten of wat drinken.
Met Gusti, Kadek en Ketut konden we het goed vinden, ze hebben ons echt in de watten gelegd. Ze gaven ons duidelijk het gevoel dat zij er voor ons waren.

Ook toen we in Semadhi waren zaten Paul en ik hebben ernstig zitten verzinnen wat er nog verbeterd kan worden. Saai, maar we kwamen niet ver.
Wellicht twee kleine puntjes (van ondergeschikt belang). Doordat ik een echte koffieliefhebber ben, vond ik het jammer dat we dat niet gemakkelijk zelf konden zetten. De Balinese koffie vind ik zelf niet echt lekker. Was geen probleem want op m’n fietsje zat ik zo in Amerta of Taman Sari.
Verder zijn Paul en ik fietsliefhebbers. Voor het doel om wat rond te fietsen voldeden de fietsen. Om echt een langere tocht te kunnen maken echter niet.

We komen zeker terug naar Semadhi om even heerlijk bij te tanken.

Hartelijke groet,

our stay in your villa was really fabulous.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Romantic dinner we had a lot more.
a special thank Gusti.
Thank you for all
Best regards

My family and I would like to thank you for the great accommodations in Bali.
Both of the villas exceeded our expectations. We hope to do business again with you in the future.

Avec ma femme et mes deux enfants adolescents, nous avons loué les suites Master et Garden durant une semaine. La Villa Semadhi propose un logement haut de gamme, spacieux et décoré avec goût. Le cadre est idyllique avec un vaste jardin propice à la lecture et à la méditation. La piscine à débordement donne sur la plage et permet de se reposer des excursions à lîle de Menjangan (réserve aquatique) ou au volcan Kawa Ijen sur l'île de Java toute proche.

Le personnel de maison (et plus particulièrement Gusti) est aux petits soins pour répondre à toutes nos demandes.

Pour ceux qui fuient le tourisme de masse et recherchent calme et tranquillité dans un cadre exceptionnel, la Villa Semadhi constitue un must!
