This place is superb, with a real attention to detail. The rooms are really luxurious, full of nice touches, whilst the breakfast was lovely (not to mention the afternoon tea and homemade cake). Set overlooking the rice paddies, it's small, picturesque and quiet, but not too far from the action in Ubud (a 15 minute walk to the centre). Nice... More

I stayed at the Samara towards the end of May during my anniversary. They went out of their way to make our anniversary stay amazing! Made was superb in accommodating us. The hotel is nestled in the rice fields, so a motor bike is required to get you to the actual hotel from the street or the "meeting point" where... More

We stayed there for a week (which is quite long i think) in june as a couple. It was exactly what we are looking for. Friendly, warm and helpful staff. No large hotel complex. Not in the noisy center of ubud but close enough to go walk to the center (we only rarely used the offered scooter-shuttle), a good and... More

A beautiful location set amongst the rice fields. We stayed for 6 nights. Quite, quite and quite, with distant subtle sounds sometimes of Bali music in the distance, mystic. The rush hour sounds of a couple of free range chooks feeding through the adjacent rice fields, mesmerising. The farmer tending to the crops, hypnotic. The view from the rooms (6... More

I stayed at The Samara with one of my best friends in March and loved it. The most awesome thing about this place is the attention to detail and the genuine concern about whether or not you have a great time in Ubud. The owners and staff are incredibly attentive and cheerful. They think of absolutely everything; from recommending restaurants,... More

We stayed for three nights at The Samara. Made picked us up from Denpasar after our flight was delayed over an hour and was the most cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was phenomenal, the property was pristine, and our private tour was amazing.

I cannot recommend the Samara enough! It is beautifully located in the rice paddies but still very close to town. It is a nice little walk, but if you like they offer free transportation. They give you a cell phone to use for local calls and to contact them. The breakfast is fantastic, but best of all is the unbelievably... More

Location is really neat - just outside the city in more rural area (transport to/from the city center is included in the rate). Rooms are spotless, nice LCD tv with a ton of channels, decent wifi, refrigerator, hair dryer, and extremely comfortable bed. Pool is really nice and breakfast was spectacular. Many options and a full menu to choose from.... More

Beautiful location, situated among rice fields yet is still close to the town (the hotel arranges a free scooter shuttle to take you to the town). Staff were attentive, friendly and are eager to fulfill any requests. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Highly recommended for a stay in Ubud.
