We stayed at The Samara Villas for 7 days in August 2016 and had a wonderful time. It was a great location - close to the city but in beautiful scenery and peacefully quiet. The complimentary scooter rides from the main street of Ubud were appreciated once our feet had gotten sore from walking. Pack light (you don't need much... More

Modern rooms in a peaceful area. Worth staying 1-3 nights while in Ubud. Friendly staff, cosy place outside of the main city within walking distance. Located in the rice field. We had a huge problem with canalisation and odour caused by it but have been offered a private villa in compensation. Villa recommended for a family/friends stay. Standard rooms very... More

Stayed three nights at The Samara and were very pleased with most aspects of the hotel. The location is special, with easy access to lovely rice field walks which we enjoyed from sunrise to sunset. The welcome and orientation from Made at Reception was top class. All staff we interacted with were lovely and professional. The grounds and pool area... More

A very calm and nice resort located in the rice fields. The staff is extremely friendly and provide excellent service. Restaurant make great food - also the Italian part of the menu card. There is 1 km to the Main Street in Ubud but that's not a problem at all since the resort has a scooter service where they take... More

Samara is a quite a hidden gem in Ubud, Bali. The staff is the absolute best that i have seen in my years of travel. The hotel is a small establishment in the middle of rice paddy fields. Excellent mid range luxury rooms with great service. The best part was the breakfast at their restaurant where you could watch the... More

Highly recommend that you use the hotel transfer we didn't and wished we had they are reasonably priced and will organise the hotel to pick you up from the parking spot. Room was clean outside shower was nice. TV has... More

Nicest staff crew around. Genuinely caring and attentive people. Everyone from Made to the folks who transported us on the mopeds are so welcoming and accommodating . The villa is not accessible by car in the last 400m. The villa provides a staff driven moped to pick and drop us off at a meeting place, which is one of the... More

Lovely modern rooms right next to the pool with outside shower. The staff were amazing, there is a nice family feel to the place. It is located up in the rice fields with great views all around. If you don't fancy the long walk into town you'll need to use their motorbike service which the staff couldn't be more helpful... More

We decided to have a couples weekend with friends and opted to stay at The Samara. The rooms are large, with a nice open air shower. The scooter service to central town is a quick ride down with the friendly staff. Well reccomended

I stayed 2 nights in Ubud at the end of a trip to Lombok and found the Samara lived up to the previous reviews. The location overlooking rice paddies is outstanding. I did the Campuchan walk on my second day, but really the Samara's outlook was just as beautiful. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable, in fact better... More
