If you are looking for a private villa and with the advantages of a hotel The Santai is for you. The Santai is just outside Seminyak in the middle of the rise fields. Each villa is completely private and you will hardly see any other guests. The hotel has a cozy restaurant where they serve a healthy breakfast but you can also choose to let it serve to your room. The room holds a fully equipped kitchen and living room as well.
We stayed at a 2 bedroom villa but they also have 3 bedroom villas available. Perfect if you have a bigger family or staying with friends. The area around the resort is very quiet and they offer a free taxi service to any restaurant you want to go to. If you have time take a cooking class which comes to your own villa. It's so much fun!

Great service and appreciate the serenity and tranquility The Santai at Umalas provided. Walked into a 2 bedroom villa and was shocked and surprised to see a large pool in the centre of the villa. Perfect for families and groups of friends. What amazed me was the light setting in the pool which changes from time to time during the night, creating an ambience. Also, they've provided floats which made staying even more fun!

I signed up for the cooking class and definitely learnt a thing or two about cooking Balinese dishes. The chefs were helpful and the food was fantastic! Additionally, I enjoyed the fact that I could order my breakfast in and enjoyed the villa which makes my weekend nothing short of awesome.

I was on a recent trip to Bali with a big group of friends and we stayed in a 3BR villa at the Santai. All of the bedrooms were very large and equal in size, only the bathrooms varied in layout and size. Since we were traveling with all adults, there were no awkward moments trying to figure out who got what room and dividing everything up was very fair. Whenever I stay at a hotel, I try to notice the stand out details that make it different or unique. At the Santai I loved the incredibly tall ceilings in our room, of course our enormous private pool, and the use of all the outdoor areas like our kitchen, waterfall shower, and the hotel lobby.

It's a quiet oasis in the middle of a bustling neighborhood. You'll find silence and serenity in your villa, but the opportunity to mingle with locals is only a few steps away.

Equipped with a beautiful private pool, outdoor kitchen and living room areas, and outdoor waterfall showers in all three bathrooms, there are plenty of beautiful photos to be had.

The Santai also provided us with a Balinese cooking class, where we made an entire 5-course meal with the help of our private chef. It's worthy of note that all Lifestyle Retreats properties have amazing gourmet fare, even straight off the room service menu. I've honestly never experienced anything like it from a hotel.
