Serene, spacious and welcoming, Villa Surya Damai luxuriates within its mature tropical
garden in the quiet village of Umalas, south-west Bali. Five comfortable guest suites with
romantic garden bathrooms accommodate up to 14 guests, while meandering pathways lead
to an open-sided living pavilion and elegant dining room. An 18-metre pool, tennis court and
TV room provide entertainment and diversion. A gentle walk beyond the thatch-roofed
pavilions of this superbly staffed villa will bring you to Batubelig beach, while the shops,
restaurants and sophisticated nightlife of Seminyak are only a short drive away, and Surya
Damai’s car and driver are at your disposal.
Villa Surya Damai is located at the edge of the village of Umalas, one of a group of small rural communities that constitute the Kerobokan district, just north of bustling Seminyak. Umalas is home to a growing number of foreign-owned residences and traditional dwellings.
The villa lies off a narrow lane that runs across a small bridge and dissects the rice fields. To
the side of the villa, immediately outside the front wooden entrance doors, is a field of
grazing cows. A pleasant 20-minute or so walk through farming communities and rice fields
brings you to the nearest beach, Batubelig. Great for surfing, this black sand beach, like many
along this south-west coastline, has strong currents, so is not advisable for novice swimmers.
For surf-patrolled waters and more developed beachside amenities, head south to Legian
Beach, seven kilometres away.
We stayed at villa Surya Damai as a group of 8 Adults for my 40th birthday.
The villa is absolutely beautiful, so much space, stunning gardens and very clean and we'll kept rooms.
The staff are so amazing, always helpful and friendly, they made my birthday extra special. I cannot thank them enough!
We will definitely be back! ♥️♥️♥️
We stayed at this amazing villa for one week and everything was great!
The staff is great and help us getting around, booking massages, always there with an smile!
The chef is incredible, very nice food, he also cooked nice things for the kids.
The house is great, very clean and new.
Great property, perfect location and awesome staff made this one of the best vacations ever. The villa is just as seen in the photos, very spacious and well maintained, the rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The outdoor showers are an experience by themselves! The pool was perfect - definitely the highlight for the kids, we had kids from 1-13 years in our party who enjoyed being in the pool everyday. The staff are the best part of this villa, they went out of their way to take good care of us. I want to thank Ayu, Agung, Kadek and Made for making us so comfortable. Chef Nenga made the best dinners - we still talk about it. Also want to thank Driver Tree and Nanny Put-Put.
This is the second time I have stayed at this villa. It was just as good as I remembered. This time we had two families and a set of grandparents. Five small children aged 2-7. Absolutely perfect for this kind of group - could do any number of room set-ups. Pool gorgeus and we had a pool fence set-up by Bali Pool Fences which was far better than the last one we had - v v secure, I would use them again in a heartbeat. Staff make the experience a wonderful one. Totally unobtrusive but nothing too much trouble. Great food. Heaps of room for children to run, play, kick balls, be noisy away from adults. We also had two nannies and a driver - easy street! Safe, easy, fun, relaxing Wish wish wish we were back there now!
Surya Damai is a gorgeous property in Krobokan. The pool, rooms, outdoor living area with sunset over the rice paddies, staff, chef...all excellent. The property is centrally located, close to Seminyak, restaurants in Krobokan, beaches etc. so if you want to be close to the action, but still have a calm oasis to hang out in, it's a great location, albeit in a "suburb". If you want something more rural and secluded, go further up the coast. We've stayed in many villas all over the world, Surya Damai is amongst the best in it's understated luxury and comfort. Thank you to the staff who took such great care of us.
The villa, pool, lounge, dining room ... meet the expectations of the web pictures. WYSIWYG
It's the absolutely lovely staff that upgrade the experience. Never felt so welcome, so well taken care of as in this place. The chef makes delicious Balinese specialties. The staff are very attentive, helpful, polite ... always around and yet you have the impression they are not here. But they are and always ready to help you out, serve you ... and even wave goodbye every time you leave the villa for an excursion. So sweet!
Dinner table was always nicely 'dressed up' with new napkin creations and candle lights.
The rooms and premises always clean and neat. The garden is well kept.
A round of applause for the staff!
Mind though that the villa is situated out off town with no immediate bars, shopping .... around and traffic is quite busy. 45' to 1h to the airport. Ca 1,5h to Uluwatu temple and beach as reference.
There is some noise of passing motorcycles but not disturbing - it's part of the atmosphere.
Tips for Elite Havens : make sure the drivers learn a bit more English so your guests can communicate better with them + that they know the best places to show. Not like a guide but at least they can advise on the best viewpoints for e.g rice fields, best beaches, shopping ..,
If you are after a villa with plenty of space, a tennis court, a large pool away from the major hustle and bustle of Seminyak but within an easy drive this is the place. The villa is well designed to accommodate a number of families. The accommodation is beautiful, clean and luxurious, particularly the outdoor bathrooms. The staff are kind and welcoming, especially with the children. The chef served beautiful Indonesian cuisine, the toughest part of the day was deciding on the menu each morning. All in all a brilliant holiday, we will return.......
Staff are attentive, accommodating and always welcoming. All of us - 10 adults, 3 kids...have only positive things to say about this villa. Its a great place to just relax and chill. The open air bathroom concept is interesting and something different from home. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the villa. All meals are delicious and thoughtfully prepared by the chef. The only time I felt really pampered on a holiday - this is that time.
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time.
