The Samaya Ubud is a stunning hotel. All the rooms are actually large villas with private pools and gardens. The bathroom is the size of most hotel rooms — with an extra large indoor jacuzzi. Bedding is superb. The highlight is the beautiful river running along and through the property. River and rice paddies and garden views are spectacular. Outstanding cuisine at the riverfront restaurant. Manager Putu Mahendra Putra offered us a gracious welcome and runs a remarkable hotel in Ubud. Thanks to Septi for taking good care of us as well. Till next time . . .

Love the warm service and amazing location at The Samaya. A short-walk to river without the noise. The food is thoughtful, clean, and delicious. The Samaya is definitely a must-do for Ubud trip. Perfect for a peaceful river with drinks and fine-foods. Highly recommended and would love to come back again.

The highlight of our trip to Ubud in April this year was hands down The Samaya. We were greeted very graciously by the Hotel manager Putu Mahendra and his amazing team. We felt instantly at home and well cared for. Each one of us was captivated by the highly attentive staff, the local vibes and the surrounding vistas. Our pool villa was large, clean, comfortable and extremely peaceful - the best part was the cocoon shape bale overlooking the river and jungle. The room is beautifully appointed and luxurious given their jungle location which lends to a sense of privacy, spacious, comfortable, the bed was divine and the bathroom with oversize Jacuzzi bathtub was impeccable. The villa is very intimate and its remote location truly allowed us to relax and escape reality. The Samaya Ubud did not disappoint – the villa, surrounding area, ‘Swept Away’ restaurant exquisite setting, staff and facilities are all first-class. The river and jungle view from the restaurant is breathtaking, the service was very friendly and attentive and the food you get was delicious, the freshest you can find. The restaurant literally sits right by the Ayung river. A magical dining experience! We were amazed at how this trip completely exceeded our expectations. The Samaya is one of the most luxurious resorts to stay in Ubud. If you are looking to get away from the daily grind, rat race and enjoy a stunning, remote, intimate slice of heaven then The Samaya Ubud should be at the top of your list.

Having been the samaya for lunch at Swept away restaurant many many times and a good few times during Covid We just decided to stay over one night and enjoy my birthday with some friends as we had booked mosaic private dining and felt it was an ideal time to stay I’ve always found all the staff very helpful and they all seem to enjoy their jobs and are happy and attentive each time we’ve dined Staying over was fantastic, each staff member is just lovely and top marks for hotel manager Putu Mahendra who checked and made sure everything was always on point. The backdrop of swept away and the resort is stunning sitting right on the Agung river and set amongst some amazing flora and fauna. The room was very nicely laid out from the large shower and huge spa bath to the Aircon in the bathroom.. the bed is one of the most comfortable I’ve slept on (and we’ve been to many many hotels) My overview is I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat they have remained in great spirits in hard times and the hotel take hygiene seriously We would always go back to the restaurant but I will certainly be heading back for a staycation soon

We had an Amazing romantic Valentine's Day experience! It's our second time staying at the Samaya, and once again it was spectacular. Our villa was right on the Ayung river, and there's nothing like eating breakfast outside our villa with the sounds of the river going by. Our room was again spotless, and staff incredibly friendly. To top things off, we had a special Valentine's Day dinner right on the river that just can't be topped. They set up a backup table for us in case it rained, which it did not thankfully. The resort manager Putu Mahendra Putra and his staff always make us feel so welcome! Thanks again to Putu, Ayu and the rest of the staff at Samaya.
