“Un Havre de Paix!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2012

We've stayed 8 days with my husband last august and it was our preferred hotel in Bali & best value for money hotel!
everything was perfect;free shuttle almost every hour, service more than professional, very good quality of food, a wonderful spa (i advise the lulur scrub), all infrastructures are very clean and neat!
The owner has always a nice word with great advises everyday; thx to him
Warm thanks also to Suastika,Poni,Agung, Dewa, Jenawan and all the rest of the team who made our stay an unforgettable one.

Based on the previous reviews , stayed at villa semana in july for my honeymoon and it proved to be an amazing place with equally amazing and friendly staff. Right from the time we checked-in till our check out we were taken care and pampered from the ever hospitable owner Jurg Suter to the stewards and other staff. Had opted for the honeymoon package which included an amazing 3 hr spa treatment and candle light dinner. We also got a free villa upgrade without requesting for one and this shows that the owner and the staff goes out of their way to make their guest's experience a memorable one. I would like to thank all the staff of Villa Semana for making this trip so beautiful and memorable.

Most luxury villa resorts are of a common high standard and it is the small things that should put the very best properties at the top of the Trip Advisor listing ..... and Semana should not be at the top. This property is using Trip Advisor as a main marketing tool as pointedly advised by the owner and guest relations manager and followed up within hours of our departure by an email from the manager giving a link to submit a review.
Our small river view villa had a pool which was far too cold to use. When mentioned to the owner,Jerg, the response was it was so cold because a covering was built over the pool and I should be pushed into the water. We stayed for a week and asked the guest relations manager to view other villas but was told this was not possible.
The wooden bed creaked loudly and, to their credit, sent workmen promptly to dismantle it with a much better result.
Had first (and last!) massage on the first day and the masseuse allowed small animals to crawl over my partner's body. The resulting bites were treated with the appropriate medication but significant bite marks remain 10 days later .... not the best for bikini holidays.
The sun loungers were of hard plastic and when we asked Jerg for mattresses he asked why? ... but did supply them promptly. We carried our mattresses daily from the villa to the main pool, to the envy of other guests!
Villa cleaning was eratic, not happening when the appropriate sign was put outside, and when displaying the 'do not disturb' sign we got a phone call asking when we wanted our villa cleaned!
We ended up avoiding Jerg who seemed more interested in his status and the perfection of his resort than the needs and views of his guests.
Niggles over, the setting was perfect, the staff charming,the shuttle good and the chef excellent. But we will not be returning ... there are so many better places.

Just returned from a really lovely three days at Villa Semana. Wonderfully situated close to Ubud, it is a beautiful setting, perched above the river. The staff are tremendous, the spa was excellent and the best massage I have had in a long time. The room was lovely and very tasteful. Nothing but good.

Villa Semana was the perfect end to a wonderful vacation. Our villa was set perfectly alongside the Ayung river, and it was as if we stepped into a world of our own. You would never have known that there was other Villas around. The staff was super friendly and helpful. As I was feeling under the weather when I arrived, the owner, Jurg, had complimentary hot ginger tea brought to our room each night. Taxis were always available to go into town, and Ubud is a wonderful village to visit. Tour the Monkey Forest for sure. To be in the shower, and look out upon a view of jungle and the Ayung river is indescribeable, and the smell of the flowers from our room, amazing aromas. We will be back.
