Sama's was the perfect home away from home for us during our stay in Ubud. They have a great location, tucked away just a short walk from the bustle of Monkey Forest Road - you can easily all everywhere in town from here, but when you turn down the garden pathway off JL Bisma it's as if you've been transported...

Samas Cottages has a lovely Balinese feel about it. Lots of greenery and beautiful stone footpaths. We had 2 a/c rooms, one behind reception and the other down the bottom of the property. The first one was really nice, although a/c seemed to only have 1 setting and was too cold. There was only 1 small, light blanket supplied which... More

Dear Roxy2, Thankyou for taking the time to write this review. It is disappointing that Sama’s did not live up to your expectations and we have taken on board your valid points and I have also talked the staff members. We understand your grievances during the construction of the meditation and relaxation bale, unfortunately, it was unavoidable. We are very... More

Beautiful little hideaway and perfect for exploring ubud! Staff very friendly and helpful, also the spa treatments very reasonable and the pool area is very relaxing. Breakfast is really good and they bring it to your cottage the next morning.

In addition to the cottages Kath & Wayan have a delightful one bed roomed detached Villa behind their coffee shop ( Kopi on Bisma) - for some reason it is not listed separately on Tripadvisor. Bookings were easy - no language barriers as Kath is an Aussie & was a delight to deal with pre arrival and when we were... More

We stayed at Sama's Cottages recently, and loved them. They are quiet and serene, yet the main street is just minutes away. A few minutes walk in the opposite direction and you find yourself in the middle of rice paddies and rural scenery. The staff are quiet and helpful, and look beautiful in their uniforms! Our yummy breakfasts were served... More

I loved this place. Very peaceful and green. You feel like you are in the jungle although you are just 5 min walking from the main street in Ubud. The people working there are super nice and helpful. Highly recommend it to everyone. For sure,would go back there if I get a chance to visit amazing Bali again.

We stayed at Sama's Cottages last week as it was recommended by The Lonely Planet guide for Indonesia - again, The Lonely Planet did not fail us!

We loved Sama's everything about Sama's cottages. The rooms are spotlessly clean, we were in an air-conditioned room near reception, and found it quiet and relaxing all day long. Love the patio where breakfast is served, and we spent a lot of spare time sitting out here in the evening. The location is fantastic - we were really glad to... More

I was really looking forward to my stay at Sama's Cottages as it was highly recommended on Lonely Planet, and my email contact with them was friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately my first impressions did not meet my expectations. The staff on reception seemed inexperienced and too tentative to relax and smile. Sama's Cottages are on a narrow block of land...

Our four day stay in May was not nearly long enough! The booking process with Kath and Wayan was impeccable. Our cottage for three adults was exactly as described. We loved the provision of a water dispenser and not just bottled water. The convenience of having quality drinkable water both hot, chilled or cool was such an advantage to us.... More
