This boutique operation has received countless accolades; I would like to add our voices to the many. The service team, the location and the accommodation are excellent. However in addition to all the above and having just stayed there for eleven nights travellers may care to consider the convenience. The scooters pick you up without fail, they give you a... More

The samara was exactly what we wanted. The serenity of being amongst the rice paddies and secluded pool. The scooter service provided meant it was easy to get into the centre of Ubud with ease. Which was great as we were regularly going into the centre for yoga. Breakfast is a 3 course meal, the onsite food is delicious and... More

This is a very quiet and peaceful place. The breakfasts were huge and delicious, a fresh fruit platter was provided in each room every day, and in the afternoons tea with a small selection of biscuits and cakes was on offer. The hotel restaurant does tasty meals. It's nice having it there on the days or nights you just want... More

Our family of 4 stayed here in two separate rooms for 3 nights. At first, after having to go in the dark on the back of a scooter to the hotel, I asked myself what possessed me to book this place? Well, after 3 nights, my husband and I looked at each other and said that we both felt like... More

Service excellent. Very peaceful small hotel. Breakfasts substantial with good choice and beautifully served. Only 6 cottages all next to the clean outdoor pool. Cottages somewhat small compared to others we have had in Bali. The 1 km Shuttle down to Main Street in Ubud was readily available by motor scooter, as the last part is not accessible by car.

First impressions were good although everything seemed quite compact and smaller than we imagined. The pool was fantastic, hardly ever anyone using it and the most amazing location beside the rice fields...truly relaxing. Room was lovely but the main thing that makes this hotel so very special is the staff...they were absolutely fantastic and made our stay here our favourite... More

Just loved this Hotel. Usually stay near the Monkey Forest, but we feel this area is being destroyed by over crowding of hotels. Samara is like the Ubud of old. Couldn't fault anything about the place. Staff were friendly and efficient, food at the restaurant was amazing and the rooms were perfect. Love the fact that it is such a... More

This villa is located in very beautiful spot in the middle of padi rice field and facing the mountain Agung. Eventough the place is secluded but it's consider nearby to the main attraction of Ubud. Villa is nice and clean and the owner is very helpful

The welcome started before we arrived and continued until we left. The staff & owner made us feel like extended family and extremely welcome the entire time. The location is serene enough to be in another world, yet close enough to experience the magic of Ubud if you want - it's just 3 minutes on a scooter or 12 minutes... More

Impeccable service from the moment you stepped into this amazing place. Service staff were attentive to the tiniest detail (from placing the towel on the chair while you are enjoying a swim in the pool, clean/ tidy your room whenever you are out to explore Ubud or even a short while for breakfast) to ensure their guests were comfortable with...
