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. The room was clean and spacious with a view overlooking the pool and ricefields. We had a great breakfast each morning which set us up for... More

We only had the pleasure of one night at The Samara, but it was wonderful. Set amongst gorgeous and tranquil rice paddy fields and off the beaten track and hustle and bustle of busy ubud, the accommodation at the samara was perfect. Greeted by 2 friendly staff who took us up to the villas (not accessible by car) on scooters,... More

A little luxury amidst the ricefields, The Samara offers excellent service, accommodation and food. Our room was spacious and modern, with an outdoor shower. The facilities includes a picturesque restaurant and a pool. The service was outstanding, including very friendly and welcoming staff, free and reliable Wifi, included breakfast and afternoon tea and finally, transport to central Ubud via scooter... More

Small resort with most of the staff attending to your needs. The place is not accessible by cars, so staff need to take us on motorcycle rides down to the main street and back to the hotel. It was a great experience and we had fun riding the motorcycles. Breakfast provided were satisfactory and filling, catering to different needs. The... More

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
