Stayed for a short 2 nights at Samara and was hosted by Yudi, the lovely manager/owner of this hotel, in June 2012. We picked the hotel for its small size, "boutique" feel, lush green surroundings and great location. Overall service was very good, rooms are modern and well kept. Yudi provided good suggestions for places to eat and things to... More

If you ever dreamt about staying in the middle of rice field, listening to birds chirping when you are awake but do not wish to stay in a kampung(village), The Samara is the best you can get. Me and my newly wed wife stayed here for 3 nights. Before arriving, I've contacted Yudi for reservation for my honeymoon trip. When... More

An extremely clean and well run small complex consisting of about 6 villas in a secluded spot with views of paddy fields. The staff are the most helpful I encountered. Met the owners who were equally as charming and pleasant. Excellent breakfast freshly prepared. Great coffee!! Fresh juices and cocktails. Coconuts fresh from the tree available on your walk into...

I chose the Samara based on the reviews in TripAdvisor and it lived up to my expectation and more! The location, though a little secluded, is wonderful for a retreat and the views and surrounding landscape are just BEAUTIFUL! There are only 6 identical villas, a restaurant and a pool.. amenities are minimal but everything done in good taste. What's... More

My wife and I stayed 5 days in one of the Samaya villa's amidst the rice fields and palm trees. The best place ever ! A few hundred meters away from the busy center of Ubud you reach paradise ... Beautiful room in a marvellous setting and great hospitality. Ideal for a combination of nature walks, city shopping, eating, and... More

Recently stayed at The Samara, and were very sad to leave. We had the very best time ever in 15 times of coming to Bali. It was our 3rd wedding Anniversary cellebration. When we came to our room, there were petals spelling it out, and petals everywhere in the room. The next day, on our anniversary, a huge flower arrangement... More

A small resort only with 6 rooms, and managed by a small team of multi-talented/tasking crew. They cook and serve breakfast, do airport transfers, pick you up on a scooter, house-keeping, surprised with birthday cake and flowers. Very sincere and heart felt services. The rooms are clean lined with modern design, very well maintained. Even the glass doors and windows... More

Loved our stay at the Samara. The villas were beautiful and the setting was breathtaking. Wished we could have stayed there longer! The location is quite secluded but still very close to Ubud. Unfortunately cars cannot take to you right up to the property, you have to take a motorbike or walk the last 500m so I wouldn't recommend the... More

This review is long overdue, my hubby Mike and myself (Sam) stayed at the Samara in May for 6 nights, having read all the review on Trip Advisor we were really excited about staying here and we were not disappointed. We were collected at the airport as promised and transferred to a parking lot 400 metres from the Villas and... More
