We stayed in this hotel for 1 night. Pros: - this hotel is located in the middle of paddy field, so it has beautiful scenery - the hotel is only 5 minutes away (using motorcycle) to the center of ubud - the swimming pool is small, but enough - the receptionist is friendly - the room is nice and bed...

Dear yossy0204, Thank you for your review, which however, we do not really understand. You have spent just one night at The Samara, and you were probably expecting to find a big hotel with many rooms and a huge pool going around the property, a couple of pool bars, a car park in front of your room's door so that...

For sure the best place in Ubud to stay, simply amazing. We went with a child in the beautiful Villa. we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere combined with the best Italian cooking in Bali and a very familiar service. Strongly suggested who want to spend some dreaming days and visiting Ubud.

The service and hospitality were Absolutely outstanding. The staff were highly efficient. The space was beautiful, comfortable and clean. The food at the restaurant was also really great, from the traditional dishes to the western food. They also made the Best Mojito I have ever had. Ubud is a very busy place filled with lots of tourists, and the Samara...

We stayed at the Samara for five nights in march. Villa is located up the hill in the middle of rice fields so it offers a lovely view. It's quite close to Ubud very crowded and noisy main street, but still it has very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Samara is not reachable by car, but the company offers you a...

Lovely boutique hotel. Perfect location on a scooter-only path just outside of town. The staff was perfect. Very helpful and always available. Food was surprisingly good for such a small place. We will be back.

Our family stayed at the Samara as our first stop in Ubud area. Beautiful boutique style resort. Great food! So welcoming and quiet set in the rice fields close to center of Ubud. Ayu and the rest of the staff really made us feel special and welcomed. We loved Ubud and the vibe (started by the Samara) we ended staying...

Safe. Peaceful. Unique. My father, friends, and I experienced warm and caring service throughout our stay. We were greeted with fresh watermelon juice and cool towels, enjoyed complimentary breakfast and tea time each day, and appreciated the staff's attention to helping us balance relaxation with adventuring around Bali. The Samara staff is standout: chill, approachable, knowledgeable and all around awesome...

To feel so at home, so safe, so welcomed, so comfortable, is a rarity. The staff are like family. They truly care. The standard of accommodation, gardens and grounds is exceptional. But still homely and comfortable. Having been to bali so many times, we have no reason to tour. Our choice of location is ubud. The Samara Villas is our...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Samara. Situated in the rice fields within walking distance of Ubud (or the staff would take you on a motor scooter), the peace and quiet after the bustle of central Ubud was really welcome. The rooms were quiet, air conditioned but with an outdoor bathroom. Plenty of storage, free wifi and most of...
