Alongside a river, you will have a delightful dinner listening to the water flow. We arrived a little late so we didn't had time for the tasting menu (most restaurants in Bali close at 11pm and only take orders until 10pm). But if you have time I highly recommend the tasting menu as I had a hard time choosing my... More

We stayed at Nusa Dua so it was quite the trip to get to Swept Away at the Samaya, located in Ubud, about 1.5 hours away. This is by the river, and not the beach just to be clear. I had booked a romantic 100 candlelight dinner (thanks to the reco of trip advisor, and the super fast replies to... More

I can't speak much higher for the amazing food and staff at the Swept Away restaurant. We booked the restaurant for a birthday celebration for 6 people on the 22nd of Dec and were we blown away with the decor and politeness of the staff. They were so accommodating with our requests and Pacek the manager was always making sure... More

I booked a table at the restaurant at the Samaya hotel 15 min ($8 taxi) out of town in Ubud for my partner's 48th birthday based on glowing reviews I had read. I have only had a few experiences like this in my life, maybe one other comparable was a private restaurant for just me in St Petersburg, and as... More

We only came for brief drinks by the river but didn't want to leave. Had wine, juice, cocktails and complimentary snacks. All the staff were excellent, especially Mahandra - who made us feel right at home, even though we were only day guests. We can only hope to come back when next we visit Ubud. Thank you so much!!!

We came here as a special occasion / anniversary dinner. It was probably the most romantic setting I have been in. The staff were exceptional and unasked went beyond normal service for us. The food was OK, but seriously I was so lost in the setting and my partner so perhaps that is a bit harsh

Down by the river, peace, beauty, very private. Great 100 candle romantic dinner. but there are more than 100 candles and lots and lots of rose petals. Some during dinner and some later (shhhh!)
