This peaceful riverside retreat combines authentic Balinese hospitality with contemporary design.

A secluded spa retreat set on the banks of the Ayung River, this is the newly-renovated sister hotel to the luxurious Samaya Bali in Seminyak. With refined hospitality and lavish comfort, this gorgeous paradise really makes the most of its enviable setting in Ubud's exotic countryside. Complimentary guided walks and cycling excursions invite you to explore the nearby rice fields and hillsides, while in the resort, you can try sunset yoga, join a cultural Balinese cooking class, or take advantage of the gorgeous riverside spa centre.

The Scene Restaurant is the hotel's beautiful breakfast setting, aptly named for its panoramic rice paddy and hillside views. Lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at Swept Away, an inviting riverside fusion restaurant that serves classic and contemporary local and international fare. The open-plan river deck is a great setting for an informal lunch, while the cosy lounge area is perfect for refreshing after-dinner beverages and tasty lighter bites.

All of the luxury villas are elegantly designed, and feature private lap pools and 24-hour butler service. Within the Ayung Valley, Hillside Villas have lots of privacy, while the Hillview Villas are an intimate retreat with stylish Balinese accents and a generous outdoor day bed. Positioned right beside the Ayung River, the Ayung Villas are a contemporary-chic escape, with a private swimming pool and separate dining deck.
