“How we fell in love with Ubud”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2010

We stayed a Samhita Gardens for 3 nights, and loved it. The staff were so friendly and the rooms and property so well looked after. Breakfast was lovely, location was great. You are still so central to everything, but feel so far away (very quiet)...... what else can I say, you would be crazy not to stay at the Samhita Gardens. We are booking for next year.... why look elsewhere.

Off a popular side street, with modern, clean and spacious rooms set way back from any street noise on beautifully maintained grounds. Clean bed sheets were a plus. Quiet for relaxing in your room or by the pool. Rooms were cleaned 2x/day. Staff was pleasant and respectful. Breakfast was okay, but with all the great cafes in Ubud, we didn't mind going out for a change. Internet cafe, laundry and restaurants right outside the premises. Wireless internet couldn't pick up from our room, but only nearer the lobby area - that was the only drawback. There were sounds of roosters, but that's to be expected in the countryside. Always had hot water and air-con was another plus. Would definitely stay there again, but rather on an off-season price. Location was perfect for walking to all the main streets. Last note, if you wish for a view of rice paddies - we didn't have one on the first floor supreme room, but the 2nd level rooms might have had some views. Booked with a balidiscoverytours.com as communicating via the hotel was alittle slow.

Arriving after 7pm in heavy rain, we were greeted by a team of friendly and helpful staff. Check-in was super efficient and within minutes we were being escorted to our rooms.

My wife and I were delighted to find that we had been upgraded to a suite, one of only two. Our children aged 16 and 10 shared an upstairs room close to our own. All rooms are really spacious and very clean. The rooms were in fact discreetly serviced once in the morning and again in the evening, bed linen changed daily and towels twice daily if required. Nice clean linen with good quality towels.

This location proved to be just perfect, it's possible to walk easily to the central attractions of Ubud. The pool has to be one of the nicest for this size of property, sparkling clean and set in some of the best maintained gardens you will come across. Even when the hotel had a higher occupancy we were often the only people using the pool with many guests out exploring Ubud and the many nearby attractions. The staff were always tending to the gardens or rooms but seemed to be very conscious of maintaing a discreet distance, having said that they were never far away should you have any requests. This perfect balance is something we really appreciate.

We'd first viewed Samhita Garden some four years earlier when staying at another property. We were really impressed with the fact that this hotel looked as good now as it had then, and for a property of it's 10 years it's a shining example of the way the management have been committed to maintaing a high standard of presentation.

We found each and every one of the staff to be delightful, friendly and professional at all times. We initially planned to stay here for just 4 nights prior to moving to a private villa in Seminyak. After just 2 nights in Seminyak we changed our plans completely and returned to Samhita for another 4 nights. One of the best holiday decisions ever made and a real testament to the way we felt about our experience!

A fantastic place to just "be"!

Can't wait to get back there!

Paid $85. US/nite. This is a classy hotel in a great location. Rooms are spacious with nice lighting and amenities. A/C could have been colder, but was ok. Rooms have mini-bar and safe. It's true that staff was not as gracious as at other hotels, however, they were perfectly nice and helpful. Pool is lovely. Breakfast is standard Balinese fare (choice of Continental, American or Balinese). Location is fantastic - short walk to center of town. I would highly recommend renting a motorbike from across the street ($5./day) to get around Ubud, however I would not drive more than a few miles in Bali - you must be a native to negotiate the traffic. Internet cafe is steps away across the street, and hotel is next to Cafe des Artistes. Bali Buddha restaurant delivers anywhere in Ubud.

On my many trips to Ubud I've stayed at a wide range of hotels including others on Jalan Bisma. This was my first stay at Samhita Gardens and, for the price, the upstairs deluxe room was great value. It was a large room (overlooking the lovely pool and gardens) with high Balinese ceiling and private, spacious balcony. I really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and felt very relaxed. I've marked 'service' down because we, at times, felt hassled by some staff who seemed over keen to sell tours etc. The location is excellent with massage places, shops and very good restaurants within easy walking distance. Overall, a lovely place to stay - highly recommended.

We booked this after arriving at a neigbouring hotel where there was a problem with electricity. Stayed in the 1 bedroom villa which had a private pool. Great room , comfortable bed and gorgeous pool area. Service was very good yet discreet. Close enough to walk into Ubud shops. Looked at standard room and would stay there too. Nice common pool area which was used infrequently. Most quests were Japanese and French. Breakfast was alacarte but more than adequate. Will stay there again!
