If you're looking for an escape this place is beautiful! The staff are more then willing to go out of their way. I can't wait to go back next time I'm in Ubud. The path to the hotel isn't for cars so prepare to walk or ride scooters! We worked up the courage and hired a scooter and it was... More

We were lucky to have stayed in the Samara in March. Everything about this place was perfect. The room, the food, the location and mostly the service was first class. I also celebrated a birthday while I was staying here and the wonderful staff brought us cake with our afternoon tea on our porch. All of the staff were extremely... More

We recently left Samara after a very relaxing and enjoyable week. Located amongst the rice paddy's of Ubud, about 1km from the hustle and bustle, this is the perfect spot to unwind. There are only 6 small villas, with a beautiful pool, surrounded by a lush, tropical manicured garden. Villas are modern with a great outdoor shower. Staff are most... More

Just amazing, words can't even describe how much I enjoyed my stay. Staff were so good at looking after everything (truly a 5-star service!) breakfast overlooking the rice paddies (chocolate banana pancakes yummmm), the pool, location was just so peaceful, perfect for couples.

A sad day today as we checked out of our accommodation at the lovely Samara Villas. We have just spent 8 days here and it really was something special. From the moment we were picked up from the airport by the friendly and very lovely Ray right through to our very last minute, this place ticks all the boxes. The... More

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
