We stayed at The Samaya Ubud for 2 nights at the start of our honeymoon and this was definitely the best way to start the trip!
We were met at the airport by a Samaya representative who had cold towels, water and snacks. It was about an hours drive from the airport but took a bit longer due to traffic, however Wayan the driver provided us with lots of information about Bali and Ubud. On the way he took us to a coffee farm where we tried several different coffees and teas which was really interesting.
When we arrived at Samaya we were taken to our beautiful villa to check in. There were lots of lovely touches as we were on our honeymoon which I won't spoil for others! The villa was stunning with a lovely pool and gazebo. The bathroom was huge with a massive Jacuzzi and huge shower!
In the evening we ate at Swept Away with is the gorgeous restaurant down by the river! The food was amazing and the service first class. It was a lovely romantic meal and a great way to start our honeymoon.
We also took part in the Balinese cooking course that the hotel offer which was brilliant. We went to the food market at 7am with the chef to see all the different foods available then went back to hotel for breakfast before starting the course. We cooked in the Swept Away kitchen and got to see how the professional kitchen worked. Loka, the chef talked us through several dishes which we then helped to make before we were able to try them for ourselves! We were given aprons and CD with all the recipes on try when we're at home. This was one of my favourite things we did while away and something I could definitely recommend!
We also had a treatment at the spa which was excellent; the staff were high trained and made you feel very comfortable. The Balinese massage is not to be missed!!
I would recommend this property to anyone who would like a private luxurious stay in a breathtaking location!
