“Fantastic Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

I have recently returned from staying in The Samaya Ubud. I was there on honeymoon and all I can say what a fantastic resort this is. We stayed in a hill stop villa. It was very peaceful. The villa was surrounded by trees. There was a lovely size swimming pool and there was a gazebo in the garden.
The staff at the resort were fantastic, very friendly. We had a fabulous breakfast every morning overlooking the rice fields. Every afternoon we had afternoon tea by the river. This was a great treat! We ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was out of this world!We took a morning cycle organised by the hotel through the rice fields and local area.
I would recommend anyone to stay in this hotel if you are visiting Bali. We done a lot of travelling around the world and this hotel is the best we have stayed in. We had a fantastic time on honeymoon at the Samaya Ubud.

My husband and I, with our two children (7 and 12) recently stayed 4 nights at the Samaya Ubud. Having just had 6 nights at the Samaya in Seminyak, we didn't think it could have got any better. We were wrong, although both Samaya hotels are exceptional. But the Samaya in Ubud is very special. Perhaps due to the smaller size, the entire team (drivers, butlers, reception staff, restaurant staff, cooks, managers, spa staff, security personnel, gardeners, etc) are so friendly and hospitable. They made the special effort of learning our names, and nothing was too much trouble for them. My children were especially touched by the butlers, as during the buggy rides they got to know a few of them, and had some insight into their lives and how dedicated they were to their jobs of making the guests happy. It was a great 'eye opener' for my children, and exactly what we wanted from this trip to Bali. My son and I enjoyed a cooking class at the Samaya, with a fantastic cooking teacher. They took us to the market in the morning and introduced us to all the different types of foods used in Indonesian cooking. Then we spent time back at the hotel kitchen cooking some dishes, to be enjoyed for lunch. It was great fun and my children can't wait to go back. The Samaya Ubud, is just magical - thank you to all the whole team - We have traveled the world and your service is the best we have experienced!

The staff at Samaya were amazing - unfailingly courteous, helpful and friendly. We especially appreciated the way they continued to make us feel welcome after checking out and needing to spend 4 hours before our late flight out of Bali. The property itself has a stunning location away from the commercial heart of Ubud. Swept away the restaurant by the river had some of the best food we ate in all our time in Bali. Highly recommended.

My husband & I stayed at the Samaya in Ubud as part of our honeymoon. The staff at the Samaya were so lovely to us. They made a big fuss of our honeymoon with flowers, a honeymoon cake, drinks & rose petals on the door mat & in the bath on arrival. They were all so friendly & nothing was too much trouble. Our villa with private pool overlooked the river & was absolutely gorgeous. It was a huge space with a very big bathroom, lovely pool & day bed in the garden. Absolutely perfect! On the first night we had a romantic dinner at the restaurant. The breakfasts were delicious. The samaya organised a wonderful cooking class for me which started with a trip to the good markets in the morning. It was followed by a 2 hour cooking class & then we could eat the good we made for lunch - delicious! I highly recommend doing this class as it was such fun & I learnt so much. We loved our 3 night stay at the samaya & hope to return one day. Thank you for a lovely honeymoon.

Great place, great staff. We'd go again for sure. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The location was great and the kids had a ball. Breakfast was average but good enough to keep you going all day.

The Samaya is one of the best experience one can ever have. It is a must-stay resort at Ubud Bali. The team is more than friendly and all they care about is the relaxation of the residents. The Spa is a necessity for anyone staying at the Samaya. The food is delicious and tasty... In a nutshell, the Samaya experience is just perfect.
