Our fourth stay at Samaya Ubud since its inception in 2010, only continues our love affair with this outstanding property that encompasses both the banks of the Ayung River and surrounding environs. The Resort Manager Wayan Suambara and his discrete yet engaging staff made our stay again memorable from the very first moment. We received a beautiful floral arrangement and...

Where do I begin? My wife and I booked a 5 day 4 night stay at the Samaya Ubud for our honeymoon. The hotel is located about 1.5 hours away from the airport and the hotel offers very affordable pick up and drop off services. We recommend booking pick up and drop off services with the hotel as it costs...

Stayed at Samaya for 3 nights from 25 Nov to 28 Nov 14. Service provided is excellent. My husband and I are very impressed with the check-in process.

If you like to have a quiet place for relaxing in Bali- you have to take this place. Our villa was very comfortable with private pool. Around the Villa there is a wonderful garden. All Villas are near a river. Large bathroom with jacuzzi. The cuisine is excellent and creative. The stuff is very kindly and always helpful.

First of all, everyone on the staff makes you feel welcome and the team is well organized to avoid/minimize any miscommunications/mistakes. Was there on my honeymoon with my wife, who is pescatarian, and for each meal there the server and kitchen already knew without us having to repeat it every time. We even signed up for a cooking class, for...

Our stay at The Samaya was sublime. All the hotel staff were friendly, approachable, kind and had a lovely service attitude. We had very specific dietary requirements which we thought would be very difficult to cater for, but we had exceptionally tasty food provided for us by the chef who admitted it was his first time catering for these kinds...

We thoroughly enjoyed a couple of days in a riverside villa of this relaxed boutique hotel. The villa itself was just lovely - very spacious and well-maintained, with the huge comfy bed looking out to the private pretty garden. The bathroom was lovely and large, with a huge jacuzzi tub and huge separate shower - very luxurious. The highlight though...

Samaya Villas, Ubud, is the ideal couple’s chill-out resort with the options to do as much or as little of the tourist things in Bali as you feel you need to do. It’s all been said before in the other reviews so no repeats here, just a few observations and recommendations. No spoilers, sorry, for the WOW FACTOR of the...

Our overall experience was delightful - from the pick-up at the airport (comfortable SUV with water and tidbits provided), checking in, quality of service, food (yummy) and the amenities. As the resort is built on a steep slope, walking between your villa and the dining areas/lobby/spa can be an arduous task. So it is was a good thing that the...
