Loved our stay here! Booked for two nights and stayed for eight. The staff were incredible and it felt like we were leaving family and friends behind when we checked out. Loved being close to the heart of Ubud but that little bit out of town .... Felt like the best of both worlds - city and country. The staff... More

Very friendly stuff, very clean and well equipped and maintained. Excellent place to relax and watch the nature. 15 Minutes from the Monkey forest and from very nice restaurants. The most amazing thing was the scooters and the Mobile phone they gave us incase we need anything from them during our stay.

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay in the Samara, the staff were very professional and friendly. They gave us a mobile phone upon our arrival so we can easily contact them. It was our honeymoon so the first day we arrived we found flowers on the floor saying "Happy Honeymoon" which was so cute. The rooms were... More

Dear Mrs. mahaelkholy90, Thank you for writing a review about The Samara. We are very happy to hear that you had a good stay with us, even if you have decided to "penalize" us with a rating of four instead of five. I must disagree with your reasons, for the following points: 1 - We only have six rooms at... More

I stayed three nights at the Samara in September 2014 with my boyfriend during our three week trip in Bali and Java. The staff is highly professional and authentic: they were making sure that all our needs were met. On our arrival, they gave us a phone to call them if we had any issues during our stay. Because the... More

I recently stayed here as part of a brief little solo trip where I wanted a place to relax and read. The Samara is EXACTLY what I wanted (plus more). The staff are all so lovely, they really topped off a great experience. If you want a peaceful and relaxing place to stay within walking distance to town, stay here.... More

The whole experience is wonderful and if you are not afraid of something a bit different this is it. The staff are fabulous and friendly, the rooms are lovely, clean and modern and with a beautiful open air shower..... More

These Villas are great value and are something different to stay in while visiting Ubud. The location is a fair walk from the road so the only way to go is by the complimentary motor bikes which is something very different for the tourist. The bikes are ridden by the staff and we always felt very safe while being transported... More

We had the pleasure of staying at The Samara for four nights during August celebrating our anniversary. The staff were really friendly and we were greeted with a lovely bouquet of flowers on arrival.
