“World-class hotel & amazing city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This hotel was absolute paradise! There is no doubt that the Samaya chain of hotels is the way to go in Bali. The staff was attentive and professional and the villa was stunning. It was such a treat to hear the roaring river every day and to have our own private pool just two steps away. The daily tea service was something we looked forward to every day. Be sure to book the bike tour with the hotel for a wonderful insight on daily life in Bali. We rode on bumpy dirt roads through humble villages and fields of coconut, pineapple, and papaya; saw old women bathing and doing laundry in the river; and of course rode through the multi-tiered rice paddy, sweet potato, corn, and tapioca fields that Ubud is known for. It is impossible not to be impressed with this hotel and this region in general.

We have just returned from 7 days staying at The Samaya in Ubud, Bali. We had a really great time, The Samaya was fantastic in every way. The service was always high quality. The staff were always very friendly and helpful and made our stay very memorable. The villa we stayed in was always very clean, very private and well looked after. Breakfast was excellent, overlooking the rice fields and mountains. We also ate at the Swept Away Restaurant which was fabulous. The massage, pedicure and manicure were also a great treat. We would always go back and recommend it highly.

My husband and I just left from staying two nights in this wonderful hotel. We were in a villa next to the river. The location is very beautiful and relaxing. The staff is very welcoming and really do everything to make your stay as wonderful as possible.
There are constant shuttles to Ubud, just ask one hour in advance, and they will pick you back up at your requested time.
I highly recommend this hotel, it was clean, the food was great (the breakfast absolutely amazing with a spectacular view) and the service more than you could ask for.

The place is good for couple gateaway, not really for family with kids. Minimum signal and contact from outside world are perfect although WiFi is provided. Staff are very friendly and love to get to know their guests closer. Jogger will love their nature track and gym. Couple must book the hundreds candles dinner by the river; it's very romantic and the romance maximises by the staff throwing a small surprise at the end of the dinner. On the down side, some smudge on tiles can be fixed and ants are sometimes seen in the room. Overall, the experience was magical and will be definitely repeated.

We are well travelled and we absolutely love this place. The experience is amazing. The villas are very private on the rivers edge with your own pool. The restaurant is fabulous but you can have breakfast served to you in your villa. There is a separate pool where there is also spa and massage villas. The massage can't be beaten. But in the end, you come to the Samaya for the people who make you feel special and a huge thanks to them and we look forward to seeing them again.

Everything about The Samaya is just amazing. We stayed there for 10 days an enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff was really amazing. The free shuttle service was really nice to explorer Ubud and the surronding areas and all our wishes were instantly fulfilled. The Villa itself was beatifull and quite with an amazing 1.8m deep pool. The inclusive Tea Time deserves a special Mention. Breakfast was the best i ever had in a hotel. The food in the swept away is amazing but at european prices. Wine is too expansive but this is mainly because of the taxes. But i recommend to try it at least once. We also tried the Spa at the hotel and were first suprised about the realy high prices compared to the Ubud Center. BUT it is realy worth its price.You get a great relaxing threatment frm professional trained employees So try it. All in all The Samaya Ubud is the perfect stay if you are searching for quiet peaceful location at highest standarts.

I left arranging our honeymoon to my husband, he did not disappoint. We arrived tired, hot and hasseled in Ubud after a night in Singapore and was welcomed by extremely friendly staff who just want to make sure you enjoyed your stay. We ended up staying an extra night as it was perfect! The location which over looked the rice fields, the food from breakfast, afternoon tea, dinner, fresh fruit left in your room to as much water as you can drink. I also highly recommend thd spa, we indulged ourselves in the couples eternal bliss massage, 2hrs 30mins later my sleepy fully relaxed husband couldn't understand why he hadn't done this before.
Enjoy! Xx
