Villa Samadhana Living
The lawn area directly below the living and dining pavilion is larger than a football field and is a great area for the kids to run around in, or to host a wedding party. Not only do children love this space; so do the native birds, lizards and butterflies.
Large open-air living spaces with high vaulted ceilings enable guests to freely enjoy the balmy Balinese climate, inhale the fragrant smells of the garden and marvel at the tiny birds and water hens that twitter and flutter throughout the grounds. Thai silk furnishings and a collection of Asian antiques reflect the owner’s exquisite taste and style that has gone into making each room special and unique.
A separate pavilion with an outdoor dining terrace sits next to the 25-metre pool, offering great views of the ocean across the neighbouring rice fields.
The enormous entertainment pavilion, one level down from the living and dining area and presenting ocean views, is the ultimate poolside retreat. With an alang-alang thatched roof and Palimanan stone floor, this room is cooled by ceiling fans and the natural sea breeze. The pavilion includes a billiard table, TV, DVD and stereo system, sofa, polished concrete bar with bar stools and washroom. The rear wall of the bar (including the fridge and water cooler) is painted with a batik motif to match the cushions on the lounge suite, adding a sense of fun and vibrancy.
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of your own villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply).
Garden & Pool
Keen swimmers will relish the 25-metre infinity pool with its spectacular ocean views, and there’s a shallow section for children and those who would rather just lie back and relax. The poolside deck, furnished with sunloungers and a white-curtained daybed provides the perfect setting to laze the days away. For dinner parties under the stars ask Gede, the villa manager, to set up the stone table (seats 14) on the outdoor terrace, which also features a large standing menhir stone.
A highlight of Villa Samadhana is the landscaped garden. Designed by one of Bali’s best landscape architects, Trevor Hilliar, the rolling manicured lawns, running water features, exotic trees, palms and flowering plants complement the villa beautifully to give it its unique sense of space.

Villa Samadhana Location
Villa Samadhana is located in the sleepy seaside village of Ketewel outside the Sanur area. Villa Samadhana is 13 kilometres from Sanur along Bali’s south-east coast. Hidden behind coral-limestone walls a few hundred metres from the glistening black shores of Pabean Beach, the villa offers ocean views from the pool area and master bedroom, as well as glimpses of Mount Agung in the distance.
Surrounded by rice fields, tobacco plantations, papaya, banana and coconut groves this is still a very traditional area untouched by tourism, however access to the bypass means it is only a ten-minute drive to Sukawati’s art and craft market, fifteen minutes to the cafés and restaurants of Sanur and 30 minutes to the cultural capital of Ubud.
Ketewel itself is the birthplace of the celebrated Legong Bededari Dance, and the neighbouring village of Saba produced the finest Legong dancers on the island. Pabean was once a small port through which oriental traders brought their products; at low tide you can still see the structure of the old harbour, and a Chinese cemetery is located nearby. Balinese Hindu purification ceremonies are held beside the ocean at the sacred Pura Segara sea temple, and the glistening black sandy stretch of coastline is popular with surfers and beachcombers, but swirling currents and a lack of lifeguards make it unsuitable for swimming.
