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

Clean and quiet small complex villas. I liked the outside shower and the bathroom materials they used. 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

The Samara is incredible and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a relaxing, out of the way charming spot to relax. The staff are fantastically helpful and nice as well! Just a heads-up, the place is located about a 10-minute walk from town (a wonderful walk), but the hotel will pick you up at the end of the... More

We really loved this place. The breakfast was really good, and the pool and rooms were very well kept and clean. We also loved that there was an outdoor shower. One thing that is important to mention is that you cannot get to the hotel by car, the road is too small and is in the middle of the rice... More

Staffs are extremely helpful, friendly and sweet!! We have problems with the taxi driver on the day of arrival but staff helped to solve the problem immediately. I really enjoyed the quiet... More

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.

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
