“Beautiful gardens in Ubud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

We tried to book into the Honeymoon Guesthouse at Casa Luna after reading all about their great cooking school. Luckily for us they were fully booked, and they suggested we try Samhita Gardens, only about 100 metres up the road.
We wanted something traditional Balinese in a great garden, quiet, walkiing distance to the town centre, and not a large resort.
What did we get? Everything except the traditional old balinese building.
Samhita is new enough to offer all the modern facicities you want in a room, yet old enough to have a truly stunning garden. In fact the garden, whilst quite small, is stunning; maintained by full time gardeners. We met people staying at Honeymoon Guesthouse who saw our room and realised they were staying at the wrong place.
Location is A+++ Just a short walk to the town centre and our daily coffee at Casa Luna coffee shop.
Our only concern is the breakfast. Instead of offering the normal buffet breakfast, they offer a very limited menu to select from and they prepare your selection and serve to the table. All very friendly service, and what you get is nice, but the menu selection is dreadful. If you don't like eggs then bad luck; you go hungry. How simple would it be to offer even home made cereal and yoghurt?
Friendly staff.
Would I go back. YES! Sure would, but be prepared to eat out for breakfast occaisionally.

We stayed at the Samhita Garden in July 2011 and loved it. The rooms are spacious with large balconies. The location is peacefull, yet only a 10min walk to everything. Outside the hotel there was a lovely cafe, convenience store, internet and massage. The staff were great, very helpfull. Great breakfast provided. Loved Ubud and this property and will be back as soon as i can get the time.

Samhita Gardens ticks all the western-tourist boxes: big, clean, pool area, modern rooms, room service etc. It would be fine for families or large groups and the private villas with their own pools are good value -$200 off-season.
However...I have been terribly spoilt with quality, charming, great value rooms with all of the above for
more than half the price which as a solo traveller suits me fine.
The staff at Samihta were helpful when they eventually understood what I was asking.
Great location; cocktails are from Cafe des Artiste next door and breakfast ample.

We would just like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at the Samhita Garden Hotel for their great hospitality, friendliness and smiles. Our stay at Samhita in Novermber was fabulous, we are definately planning to return along with other members of our family. Well done and we look forward to staying with you again.

We stayed with a few friends and found this hotel to be really nice. Large well maintained rooms, beautiful pool and garden. The staff very friendly and helpful and it is well located close to shops and restaraunts. Seemed reasiably priced for this standard of villa in Ubud.

Samhita Gardens is a 'family' style hotel. I wouldn't recommend it for a solo traveller.

The rooms were overpriced at $100 per night. They had HUGE rooms with very little furniture in them. Made them seem bare and quite a waste of space! The first night I stayed there, there must've been some kind of club or party around the corner. The music was pumping till after midnight, and I just wanted to get some sleep! TV only had indonesian channels (no cable).

I paid the same price at Villa Sarna for much better room / service / food / pool / television.

I paid $55 a night at Ubud Aura (right next to Yoga Barn- still in central Ubud), and the room was much nicer with a delicious breakfast.

Save your money and look somewhere else!

We arrived in Ubud one day in advance to select a good hotel to properly accommodate our guests.
We were fairly impressed by this hotel even if it was empty in an high season period close to xmas holidays.
Once we choose the rooms, we got the bargain price of $75 each room.
When we checked out I was surprised to find that the price had become $90.
Since we didn't ask for a written quotation they alleged to claim that I misunderstood. There isn't much to misunderstand between 75 and 90.
I asked to talk to the manager. Contacted by phone, he refused to talk about the case.
Not to raise an issue in front of my guests I had to pay the bill.
