We spent 5 nights at the Samaya for the first part of our honeymoon. On arrival we were met by one if the drivers from the Samaya who had some iced water and fresh strawberries for us. After a long flight we were greeted by a number of the staff and taken to see an amazing view of the rice paddy fields in Ubud. We were taken to our villa by one of the butlers on a golf buggy and shown some of the property.
Our butler showed us all the facilities in our rather large villa which was spotlessly clean. Our rose petal bath and honeymoon cake were very nice.
The breakfast at the Samaya was lovely, we sometimes had this in our villa or in the restaurant with the views over rice paddy fields. There we'd more than enough choices to suit everyone, the pancakes with pineapple and maple syrup were particularly yummy.
I must say that the service at the Samaya was of the highest quality, Wayan and the team could not do enough for us. The room cleaning and turn down service and service at the restaurant and in villa dinning was great.
Since this was a honeymoon my husband arranged for a 100 candle dinner, as I am not a meat eater my husband told me had a number of email conversations with Wayan to arrange the to suit my taste. The food and was of a very high quality, and I thoroughly recommend the chilli passion fruit martini which I LOVED! The food rivals some restaurants in London.
We had a fabulous first part of our honeymoon at the Samaya Ubud before moving on to the Samaya Seminyak.
