I would definitely recommend you to stay in the Samara if you look for a a cosy, clean place to stay in Ubud. You avoid the traffic, noises, ... fuss of Ubud, yet you are just 800m away from it all. The rooms are clean, quite new and offer a great shower outdoors. We seldom saw small insects in our... More

This villa is truly beautiful with amazing views over the rice fields. The location is perfect only a short 15 minute walk down a lovely street or a 3... More

I stay at The Samara for one night, and everything is almost perfect :D. The journey start with their complimentary pick up service at the airport. The pick up service is smooth, safe and enjoyable. We can see the good scenery between Denpasar to Ubud, especially the new toll road. Please do reserve the room via their online reservation, and... More

We had Ryan pick us up from Seminyak and he went above and beyond was was expected of a driver. He told us stories and taught us some local history. The greeting at The Samara set the tone for our entire stay, offering you a cold washer on arrival along with a welcome drink. They took you into town and... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for 3 nights. Our stay here was extremely relaxing and the staff were wonderful. We loved that the hotel overlooked the rice field. Although the area is in a remote location, the walk into the center of town was enjoyable We also loved tea time and the breakfast was good! We stayed here in... More

After a few days in Seminyak we headed to Ubud to a magical few days in the middle of the rice fields. This private setting of only 6 villas was a romantic and intimate luxurious backdrop for our end of our Bali trip. From the unique pick up on motor scooters at the bottom of the hill to the friendliest... More

I loved my read time in the morning outside of the room, the chair was so comfortable and the view of the garden was so calm and natural. Their breakfast was neat and tasty. Overall it was pleasant stay. One thing i would... More

I was a bit anxious after reading reviews from other travellers that the place is a bit far from the town centre. While there are many other hotels/inns more conveniently located in Ubud but I doubt if the view and the service could be better than what you get at the Samara. Samara is located in the middle of rice... More
