Discover Highly Personalised Service and Peaceful Balinese Experience at The Santai Umalas


The Santai Umalas offers a peaceful Balinese experience combined with highly personalised hospitality and homely ambiance that makes you feel right at home.

It’s easy to conjure up an image of Seminyak – the first thing that comes to mind must not be very far from the shops, restaurants and buzzing social scene of this renowned Bali neighbourhood. When you think of Seminyak, your mind goes to the hippest, most up-and-coming establishments, and the many photos you’ve seen on Instagram.

Isn’t it a delightful surprise, then, to arrive at The Santai Umalas and treated to the quietude of the area, so close to the picturesque rice fields and local village temples, yet also nestled in a quiet neighbourhood, only a 15-minute drive away from the center of Seminyak? The Santai offers a combination of convenience, exclusivity and peace for their guests, making a stay at The Santai truly encompassing and one-of-a-kind.

The pool at one of The Santai Umalas’ Three-Bedroom Villa. The large pool starts between the bedrooms in each villa. With all the greeneries around it, the property boasts a peaceful and calm ambience.

The experience begins with a warm welcome from the staff Family, who starts off the pampering right from the moment you check in. The humble lobby is designed in such a way that you can’t help but feel like you’re in someone’s living room, further etching that sense of “home” that seems to embody the entire establishment.

The Santai Umalas has a total of 10 luxurious and private villas, with the choice of either a Two-Bedroom Villa or Three-Bedroom Villa for the guests, each with their own pools. It’s a different experience compared to the other big hotels and resorts on the island, as every moment here would feel completely catered to your individual preferences, and suited to your idea of a vacation.

Each villa comes with its own sundeck and daybed, featuring elegant bedrooms, living room and its own respective dining area, as well as a fully equipped kitchen. There’s also 24-hour butler service and a home theatre system, all the more facilities to keep you coddled all throughout your stay.

Though nestled in a quiet neighbourhood, The Santai Umalas is actually only 15-minutes away from the heart of Seminyak. Guests can make use of the shuttle service from the hotel to get around the area and experience the buzzing social scene.

The Santai Umalas is one of Lifestyle Retreats properties, a hotel management company that boasts unique luxury options that focuses on a wellness experience for its guests. Their holistic, ethical and results-oriented approach has been the foundation in creating places that offer guests with complete relaxation and unparalleled personalised services, as well as a wide selection of healthy lifestyle activities.

As part of one’s stay at The Santai Umalas, guests can further immerse in the tranquility of the neighbourhood by cycling or walking around the area, and even hop on an adventurous excursion as it’s fairly close to popular surfing spot Batu Bolong Beach.

The Santai Umalas is designed with thoughtfulness and warmth, bringing forward a combination of contemporary minimalism and a touch of traditional Balinese character that makes the place not only welcoming, but also comfortable. The rock-lined pond, hanging vines and the cosy gazebo sitting area gives the place a homely feel to it, while also cementing that ever-attractive chic quality.

Furthermore, with the pool central to each villa, it becomes a kind of oasis whereby all parties gather to share meaningful moments with one another. The resort incorporates local wood and stone materials, giving off a strong Balinese village feel that somehow strengthens the energy of the Island, too.

An evening at The Santai Umalas’ Three-Bedroom Pool Villa. It’s a perfect spot to create new memories with your friends or family, as the exclusive retreat offers a place to relax and rejuvenate, while also close enough to rejoin the social scene at your heart’s convenience.

This exclusive retreat boasts an ‘A’ game when it comes to its staff Family, who are more than ready to serve guests with confidence and positive attitude, bringing with them a wealth of hospitality experience and local knowledge that shows during one’s stay at The Santai. The attention to detail is impeccable, and exceptionally mindful that it takes service to the next level for each and every guests.

The Santai Umalas also has its own restaurant, GONG, which boasts an Asian fusion menu that will accommodate guests’ palate. Wellness options for guests, meanwhile, come in the form of in-villa spa & massage treatments, which aims to help guests relax during the holiday. With an all-natural selection of spa products, the journey to rejuvenation is only further enhanced here.
