This is a stunning contemporary villa! And its cliff-top location is sensational – as far south as is possible in Bali; next landfall is Australia! We spent the day basking in the incredible ocean vista from the vast infinity pool and the cliff-edge entertainment balé, watching the waves roll in 80 metres below.  We admired the fabulously equipped gym (shared with Villa Hamsa) – there are some serious weights in there – but decided that we were more in the mood for the sauna and steam room.  We loved the villa’s clean modern lines softened by some choice ornamental pieces – I admit I coveted the canoe decorating a two-storey high wall; now, but where would I put it at home?

In the evening we enjoyed an amazing Japanese dinner prepared for us by the highly talented chef.  The butlers set up a candle-lit table on the deck for us and we feasted on tuna tataki with mango salsa, spinach goma with sesame dressing, and seafood hotpot – all absolutely delicious! And after squeezing in a feather-light green tea crème brûlée, we happily retired to our insanely wide 2.4-metre bed – by far the largest I’ve ever slept in; you’ll need to use GPS to meet your partner in the middle!

With its multiple living areas and large private bedrooms, we think this is the perfect destination villa for high-living friends – there’s so much space to entertain.  And there’s much to attract families with older children (though younger ones would have to be supervised carefully).

Highlights

Unquestionably, the spectacular ocean view steals the show at Villa Soham.  But for us the highlight was our in-villa dining experience; the meal was more than a match for Seminyak’s celebrity restaurants, and we were hard-pressed to find a reason to venture beyond the villa walls.

Surprises

While this is a thoroughly elegant villa, and it’s clear a lot of attention has been paid to the interior design, we did feel that comfort may have played second fiddle to aesthetics in some instances; we would have loved the chance to siesta in a soft seat on the balcony deck, for example, or retire to a comfy chair on the (elegantly bare) deck outside the master bedroom.  And you might have to fight over the sun loungers – there were only two at the time of our stay.  But more sociable groups won’t even notice this, as they’ll be congregating in the large entertainment balé.

Thank you so much for treating us as if we your own. This year we celebrated so many mile stones and this trip was our way to celebrate them while bringing in new year. It's unlikely we will all be in the same place like this again so we appreciate the special care you took to take care of us. The villa was spotless, the food was flawless, the staff were so very kind. We will recommend this villa to anyone/everyone we can.

As a Chef and a food traveler blogger, I visit a lot of places around the world. We never stayed in a villa with such an incredible ocean view. The staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating and the chef cooked us the most delicious and amazing Indonesian style meats and an incredible seafood BBQ. We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Sohamsa and highly recommended to everyone. Thank you to all the team for most memorable experience.

Thank you very much for an amazing few days staying at your villa. Not only were the facilities beyond fantastic but the wonderful service from the staff was next level. Also a big compliment to the chef each meal was delicious and it was very nice to try traditional Balinese dishes. All in all 10/10 facilities and service. We would recommend to all of our friends and family.

From the breathtaking view as you enter the gates to the villa, to the wonderful staff that made sure we were pampered and taken care of throughout the entire stay. Sohamsa Ocean Estate is most definitely a memorable place for our vacation.From age 8 to age 86, everyone had a blast and there was always something nice for someone to do. Thank you Sohamsa staff and team.

This has been one of our best holidays. The staff and the dwelling were brilliant. Adhi and his team have been always ready to assist with anything and were forever smiling. The food was so delicious and more than enough. I will have to shed some weight back at home as I couldn't resist the taste. The kids are already missing this place. We will come back here.

8.8 out of 10
based on 29 user reviews. This is a stunning contemporary villa! And its cliff-top location is sensational – as far south as is possible in Bali; next landfall is Australia! We spent the day basking in the incredible ocean vista from the vast infinity pool and the cliff-edge entertainment balé, watching the waves roll in 80 metres below.  We admired the fabulously equipped gym (shared with Villa Hamsa) – there are some serious weights in there – but decided that we were more in the mood for the sauna and steam room.  We loved the villa’s clean modern lines softened by some choice ornamental pieces – I admit I coveted the canoe decorating a two-storey high wall; now, but where would I put it at home?

In the evening we enjoyed an amazing Japanese dinner prepared for us by the highly talented chef.  The butlers set up a candle-lit table on the deck for us and we feasted on tuna tataki with mango salsa, spinach goma with sesame dressing, and seafood hotpot – all absolutely delicious! And after squeezing in a feather-light green tea crème brûlée, we happily retired to our insanely wide 2.4-metre bed – by far the largest I’ve ever slept in; you’ll need to use GPS to meet your partner in the middle!

With its multiple living areas and large private bedrooms, we think this is the perfect destination villa for high-living friends – there’s so much space to entertain.  And there’s much to attract families with older children (though younger ones would have to be supervised carefully).
