The serenity is really the draw here! Probably because we decided to stay in low season in August. I was initially hoping for mountain view but the rice terrace view is equally magnificent. The room is clean, the pool is small but very very nice. Staff are very nice and helpful.

Samanvays is one of my favorite places to stay. Located in Sidemen which I consider the part of the true Bali. You can choose how active you want to be from climbing Mt. Batur, White Water Rafting, Scooter Tours, or just want to "chill" and relax? That can be done

Hi, there are some fabulous walks in the area which is known for it's beauty. Its just like the old Bali of many years ago before lots of tourists, really special! There are many different private tours from Samanvaya all with the staff who are all local, village tours where you can also go to the guides home in the community which is really interesting and personal, market tour or ricefield trekking as well as car tours and mount agung/batur treks. The most popular tour is a scooter tour which is just amazing! You don't have to drive, you go on the back as passenger. It lasts 2 or 3 hrs and you get to see places that you would never see in a car or walking. They are very good experienced drivers and the roads/tracks are very quiet so you feel safe. Very special indeed and very highly recommended as it is a unique experience. Don't worry, the staff at Samanvaya will look after you and if you want, you can contact them beforehand and pre book any activities you would like to do. Have fun!

La traduction google est pas bon, donc je ne suis pas sûr de vos questions, je suis désolé, je ferai de mon mieux pour répondre! Il n'y a pas de nouveaux hôtels construits en vue de Samanvaya. Tous nos établissements disposent de fantastique champ de riz, colline et quelques vues sur la mer, bien que Champak Lodge est restreint car il offre une vue sur les étangs de lotus et de poisson. Nous avons un beau restaurant avec cuisine locale et internationale. L'humidité est à son plus haut à propos de Janvier / Février en fonction de la saison des pluies mais il est plus à l'aise ici que nous sommes dans les montagnes. Réservez directement au samanvaya-bali de recevoir des tarifs promotionnels spéciaux qui ne sont pas disponibles ailleurs.

"Room at East side the Bamboo house, Padi Merah, Padi Hitam ( Lumbung) are recommended."
"The Lumbungs are really nice"
"Every room offers an excellent view of the field. Afterall, you're located among the greeneries! :)"
