As guests at the Samaya Ubud, we ate several times in this phenomenal restaurant.
The food is some of the best we have eaten in all our travels. With a diverse menu and innovative combinations, the presentation, flavours and portion sizes were faultless. Entrees, mains and desserts were all delightful and they make a mean cocktail, too!
The restaurant is very accommodating of dietary needs, provides additional lighting for those of us at night who struggle to read the menu and provided attentive, warm and helpful service.
Making the experience, though, is the setting. Literally river side, the rushing of water is your constant companion, with the occasional squeals of delight of locals rafting down the river on tyre tubes or taking a quick bath in the stiller shallows!
The 100 candle dinner (from where we sat) looked spectacular, a truly romantic sensory experience.
Everything you would expect from a top of the line, well respected restaurant and a genuine surprise for a Bali hotel tucked away in the regional centre of Ubud. If you're staying in the area, or daytripping from the Denpasar area, I would highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed.
