Peace and tranquility is easy to find in Bali’s spiritual heartland, but there’s something rarified about this particular retreat. Combining pared-back minimalism with distinctive Balinese character, Senetan Villas & Spa Resort is the perfect modern escape.
No need to pack light for a stay at this all-villa property; even the smallest villa category weighs in at an impressive 230 square metres, with a private pool and sun deck. With boxish, fresh-white walls, well-selected furnishings and kimonos to saunter about the space in, they’re designed with a discerning modern traveller in mind.
Of course, no hotel on the island would be complete without a very good spa. Break up your sleep-and-swim routine with treatments using organic indigenous ingredients, or book or a one-to-one yoga session with an instructor. Add to that the rustic restaurant serving homegrown garden veggies, and it’s a recipe for a thoroughly revitalising getaway.
How to Get There
From the moment we arrived here to the moment we left, we felt like royalty! Myself and my friend stayed here booking the cheapest room as we were on a budget. On our arrival we were told we would be given a free upgrade to a villa with a pool for the duration of our 3 night stay due to the room I had originally booked being unavailable. The following day was my birthday and we went out for the morning and upon arrival back to the villa, there was a birthday message written in flowers on the floor of our room which was such a nice touch and completely unexpected! A small birthday cake was also left for us to enjoy. After our meal on this night we asked for ice cream to take back to the room to have with the birthday cake. A member of staff told us they’d bring the ice cream to our room for us. Three staff members came with more cake and ice cream with a candle in and sang happy birthday to me. It was such a lovely gesture and the staff went above and beyond to ensure not only did I have an enjoyable birthday but that our whole stay was amazing. The staff are a credit to the hotel and their actions and the free upgrade has been one of the most memorable moments of our stay in Bali. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Very secluded setting with well appointed villas. Great pool that opened up right into the jungle. Food was nice and staff very attentive and friendly. The resort is a little bit out of Ubud but the complimentary shuttle makes visiting town very easy.
There are only 12 villas so the atmosphere at the restaurant is very low key. We opted to eat in our villa most days and sit by the pool.
We have no words for this beautiful resort!
Your services were excellent, this villa was excellent, the view was excellent!!! Thank you very much for these wonderful days! We are missing you already and will come back the next years :)
