A beautiful small boutique hotel away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud, overlooking the rice fields. Staff were lovely - all of them so friendly and helpful. The scooter ride up the path to the hotel was great fun and we made good use of the free rides to the main road every day. Walking north into the rice... More

We just got back from the most brilliant trip to Ubud in Bali. The Samara Villas, tucked away amidst terraced rice fields a few minutes from the happy bustle of Ubud's centre, was the perfect place for us. Incredibly peaceful, restful and elegant, with only 6 villas, it feels more like a well appointed home away from home than a... More

We have just returned from a week at the Samara and loved every minute of it. The staff and service are wonderful, including the twice daily tidying of the room, the trips up and down to town on the motorbike, the afternoon tea by the pool and the warm welcome smiles and greetings on return from our day out and...

We've just returned from 8 nights at Samara - my second trip to Ubud and my husband's first - and absolutely loved it. To climb out of the taxi and be swept off on motorbike to the Villas (there is no car access for the last 400m leading to the Villas) was such a fun introduction. The staff, from the... More

In march 2013 we stayed for a week at the Samara. It's a small hotel, 6 rooms, two rooms per well built, modern bungalow style building. Rooms are decent sized, bit basic and simple, with a big bed for 2 people, good mattresses, clean, and with good AC units. Bathroom is partly in- and outside, shower is outside in a... More

We stayed at Samara Villas for 2 days while visiting Ubud. It's a small boutique style setup in the hart of the rice fields. The immediate impression one gets is that the staff is there to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and that its a good clean setup. The rooms are spacious with great facilities and descent bathrooms... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations by far. This is true boutique hotel by all definitions where the room and service was truly superior. The location is idyllic, situated in the middle of rice fields and very close to a nice trekking path. This hotel only has 6 rooms and the whole experience is quite intimate with the staff making you... More

We went there over the Easter break and it was beyond my expectations. Very friendly staff, nice relaxed atmosphere, we were lucky and room closer to the rice fields ... nothing better than waking up, opening the windows and seeing the sun rising behind the palm trees...the outdoor shower was a new experience, that I loved! Will definitely go back... More
