we stayed early july 2013 for 6 nights. the location is excellent, about 15 to 20 mins walking distance to Ubud's main road (shops, restaurants,etc), and surrounded by rice fields. Note however building of new hotels/guesthouses in Ubud is going on at a steady pace, so don't expect to be alone there. There is a new construction nearby which blocks... More

Villas are located in the middle of rice fields. You can see ducks, storks and roosters on a field. They have a nice little pool and enough sun chairs. Villa was very nice and clean. Shower was outside of villa. It was nice! The staff was really polite and they really did their best. It's not long way from the... More

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at the Samara Villas. We had a fantastic and rejuvenating stay. The villas are away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud but close enough to spend a 15 minute stroll walking back to the centre of activity own a pleasant local lane with shops and eateries. The rice paddies surround the... More

We spent six nights at The Samara in May/June as part of our honeymoon. We had high expectations from its trip advisor ratings but even they were exceeded. The service particularly stood out, both from all the staff we encountered and from Yudi and Stefano. We arrived late at the airport and were met by Rai, the superb driver and... More

Can highly recommend The Samara. My friend and I had the most fanastic time staying for 8 nights at The Samara at the start of May 2013. Could not fault service, location, or the most beautiful rooms. The views of the paddy fields were fanatistic. The staff had the perfect balance between professional and warm. Will continue to stay there... More

Wow, what can I say......We (husband, 11 year old and myself) just spent a week at The Samara and left feeling like part of the family. We spent the mornings with a freshly brewed coffee on our porch watching our daughter swim with a backdrop of rice farmers working and ducks waddling. We then ate fantastic indonesian breakfeasts(but there were... More

My family of 3 adults have just departed after a weeklong stay in this amazing villa resort. We give Samara top rating, and we are very picky travellers who love quality, service and value! Small, intimate and nestled amongst working rice fields, there are constant delights to see all around and the beauty is stunning. The entire staff from reception... More

Just stayed for 4 nights, on honeymoon - probably the best service I've ever had in terms of personal warm genuine service, from owner Stephano and his wife. Any request including advice on stuff to do and organizing it for us seemed only too easy. There was personal touches every day with handmade chocolates, flowers etc left for us. You... More

We spent only one night (unfortunately) at The Samara in April when visiting Ubud and what a wonderful experience it was. The villa, the restaurant where we had dinner, breakfast on the lawn overlooking the hills, - everything was superb. And the violent rainstorm in the evening was an added spectacle. Loved it!
