The samara is a hidden gem in ubud. It's beautifully located next to the rice fields and is an extremely peaceful place. You can't help but relax! food is delicious as is breakfast which is very personalized. Staff are fantastic and the rooms are so comfortable. Loved the outdoor shower and pillows! Highly recommended.

My wife and I had a short stay in the Samara Villas in Nov 2013. The hotel is ideally situated in the rice paddies about 500 metres outside of Ubud. If it is too far to walk then you can get free trips to and from the town by scooter. You also get a mobile phone just in case you...

Beautiful location and great service. The rooms were nice and cozy. We stayed in Room # 6. One small grouse was that the toilet and the shower area sometimes had a very weird stink - not quite sure how and why, but it was noticeable and unpleasant. On the flip side, service was exceptional and the breakfast was sumptuous. Rusma...

Absolutely loved it! This place is just perfect. We stayed at the beautifull villa n°6 for 3 nights. Breakfasts are really good with a nice balinese touch. The lady serving the breakfast is just too nice and she adds a personal touch on top! Location is perfect! Almost hard to believe to be so close to the crowdy Ubud center...

I had the best honeymoon ever, very peaceful green small compound with little cute clean villas. I liked the place so much, away from pollution and traffic. Its about 600m. off the main road into the green fields. Perfect for relaxation and nature enjoyment.

We loved our stay here. We were picked up on the airport and about after one hour drive we arrived. You can not reach the hotel by car so the last part is done by scooter. The bungalows are wonderful situated in the middle of the rice fields. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The bungalow is wonderful. Very...
