“lovely place to stay”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I spent 8 nights here in June on my own and loved it! The location is good, on a quiet road, just off the main road in Ubud. There are couple of shops, warungs and the Kopi on Bisma on the same road which is handy. I stayed in both the deluxe AC cottage and the superior fan cooled cottage, both were very nice. The beds were comfortable, with nice bed linen and the bathrooms were nice and clean. I really cant fault anything about this place, all the staff are very friendly and helpful, they even decorated my room with flowers on my birthday and made me a card, which was a lovely touch! I felt very safe staying here on my own, it is quick and easy to walk into central Ubud but also you can walk out into the rice fields really quickly too. I would definately stay here again and hope to return next year. Booking was easy, direct with the owners by email and Kath answered any questions that I had. I miss staying there and wish I was back there now!!

We stayed at Sama's Cottages for 3 nights and we wish we stayed longer. The cottages are situated a short walk from the Main Street in ubud, the cottages are well maintained, clean and the staff are very attentive and welcoming. Brekky is served on your front porch which is a nice touch, if your looking for a nice quiet relaxing location close to everything this is the place to stay in Ubud, hopefully we will be back soon!

P.S the cafe just down the road (owned by Sama's Kopi on Bisma) has wonderful coffee!

I stayed here for 8 nights. I was fortunate to have the air-con cottage at the bottom of the small ravine. I had a fantastic view of the greenery & bamboo lined ravine with the all day sounds of water running, birds, frogs and roosters. (I had ear plugs - so the roosters didn't wake me too early). Although the walk down to my cottage involved quite a few steps, it was well illuminated at night. My cottage was spacious and well appointed and very clean. The service was great - a delight breakfast delivered each morning at a time specified by me the previous night. The friendly owner, Kath came visiting one day just to say Hi, and check that everything was OK. The staff were always friendly and obliging. There was no pushing of tours etc. The pool is in a quiet green corner. There is a great coffee shop very close by. Nice to sip a cafe latte whilst lounging by the pool. It was an easy walk to all the local shops and cafes. But take care of the footpaths in the main street - full of dangerous drainage gaps. I would highly recommend this to solo female travelers and couples.

Room Tip: The air-con cottage at the bottom is very quiet and has a great view over the small ravine.

Dear starworker, what a beautiful review, thankyou so much. You have captured what Sama's is, a quiet retreat from the ever busy Ubud streets, a place where you can truly relax and soak in all of what Bali is......yes birds, roosters, geckos, etc are all part of the experience here at Sama's, and that is the way it will always be. Our staff take pride in their job, and they genuinely want to do a good job. You are right, there is no pushing of tours, etc, nor should there be. We thankyou once again for staying with us and wish you happiness always.

Visited with extended family of 8 adults and 2 children. Certainly as good as the other reviews have stated.
Very clean, in a great location with very friendly and enthusiastic staff. Great facilities with a great pool, very quiet and a lovely breakfast. Excellent value for money and would recommend to anyone. Will be back.

We stayed at Sama's for 10 nights and loved it. Very quiet with helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was served out on our patio. Sama's is close to town with restaurants (Cafe d'es Artistis nearby) close at hand. There is also a motorbike path down Bisma that connects to Monkey Forest which saves you from the insanity of Main Street when getting to Yoga Barn! The pool was really wonderful on hot afternoons and evenings.

Can't say much as it's already been said many times by other reviewers. If you want quiet, relaxed, comfortable accommodation then this is it. The property, with its extensive tropical gardens, has the feel of solitude in a rain forest. It is very peaceful and the property is bordered by a stream. We enjoyed daily coffee/cakes at their cafe "Kopi on Bisma, served by very friendly staff. It's a 10 minute walk to the market, has a swimming pool, cool air-conditioning, adequate breakfast (although, unfortunately no bacon), comfortable bed and pillows. There is no jug for hot water but a large flask of hot water is delivered to the room early morning. If you like milk in your coffee, be sure to ask or write on the breakfast form.

Dear Anthony1962, we are so happy to hear that you had a relaxing stay with us at Sama's. We are indeed in a fantastic location, being in the centre of Ubud but still set back from the road enough for you to be able to take a break from the increasingly busy streets of Ubud. We love our little coffee shop too, and it is a winner for our guests who like a brilliant latte, cappuccino or short black. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed it too. We wish you all the very best and thankyou for not only staying with us, but for writing your review too.

We stayed at Sama's for 5 nights in May in a family room. The room was spotless, spacious and ideal for our family of four, fitted out beautifully. Our kids (aged 7) loved the paths and the pool and especially the coffee shop out the front - Kopi on Bisma. Best salad, coffee and milkshakes!! The Sama's breakfasts were also brilliant and fresh with lots of choices.
The hosts were fantastic, the staff were welcoming and helpful, and the location is perfect, in a side street off one of the main streets. We will definitely return to Sama's, we miss the smell of fresh frangipani flowers in the bathroom.

Dear AnnaM, it was such a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us, and you were even more special as you were the first to stay in our newly renovated family cottage. I too love the smell of frangipanis, they are such a part of Bali, and so we like to put them everywhere for our guests. It is great to hear that you enjoyed our Kopi on Bisma coffee shop too, and that you were able to try not just the coffee! We thankyou so much for staying with us and wish you happy days always.
