Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The loveliest hotel we have ever stayed in. The lodges are peaceful and beautifully equipped with everything you could wish for, and we enjoyed the private garden and pool. The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent, and served overlooking the rice paddies. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

Hotel's Favourite
We visited the Samaya as the 2nd hotel on our trip (1st was Fairmont Singapore and 3rd Alila Seminyak) as a family with our 13 year old daughter. From the minute we arrived the experience was great. The location is amazing, set in the middle of a rainforest and rice fields, just 15 mins from central Ubud. Very unique. The service from all members of the team, check in, restaurants, spa and activity guide for the morning hike was one of the best levels of service we have received anywhere in the world. The hillside villas was just tranquil, very clean and authentic with a private pool that had all Day sun. The food at the restaurant was always perfect and they were so accommodating to my daughters request for simple food. The Bali produced white wine was also good, definitely recommend trying this. We stayed for just 2 nights, a 3rd night May have been helpful to see more of the central town but 2 for us was perfect before we moved onto Seminyak. We used the spa for reflexology, best I’ve had (and I’ve tried a few) and we did the morning hike through the rainforest and local village - this is a must. We’ve been lucky as family to travel lots, if your visiting Bali and want to experience something different to the beach then this hotel is great. Thanks so much to the amazing team for looking after us.

My husband and I returned to this resort for a vacation, several years after getting married in this very place. We felt that with all the excitement and preparation at the time, we weren’t able to enjoy the resort properly then — even though we knew it was an amazing place. Being able to fully focus on our vacation this time, we had another absolutely unforgettable experience. We stayed at the riverside villa - which was beautiful, spacious, comfortable, always smelt good (yes!), and serviced by the most wonderful and friendly staff. On our first day here they even left us a “welcome back” cake that was in the color of our wedding cake!! And this is only one of the many personal touches of the exquisite service here at the Samaya. We enjoyed our daily breakfast (soo much good food and healthy smoothies), the spa (best massage we ever had in Bali, tried hard not to fall asleep), and the dining experiences by the river at the Swept Away Restaurant. The yoga class was also very good, and morning trek really nice. We always felt so lucky to be here and cannot wait to be back again with more family. We are so thankful to the helpful and friendly hotel manager Pak Putu Mahendra, chef Pak Komang, and the many staff including Pak Anto and many many others.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we felt totally cared for and spoilt. Every member of staff can't do enough for you and everyone is so happy and friendly. Our room was outstanding and prepared to such a high standard. fantastic toiletries, loads of towels and a great hair drier. The room was made up each morning, while we ate breakfast and the turn down (with lovely chocolates) was done each evening while we were having dinner. The pool area was kept tidy as well and was a lovely place to relax, so quiet and peaceful. We could walk to breakfast and as soon as someone saw us walk in they offered us an outside or inside table. Both areas had a lovely view. The breakfast was cooked to order and so much choice. Gorgeous, freshly squeezed juices and fresh local fruits. For dinner, we would ask for a buggy and that was always prompt. The restaurant was lovely and also offered a complimentary afternoon tea which was a perfect stop gap until dinner. We ate here on 3 evenings and every meal was lovely and beautifully served. We felt the prices here were reasonable considering they virtually had a captive market. We treated ourselves to a couples Balinese massage in their Spa and it was amazing, lovely views and so tranquil. Just what you need after spending 18 hours on a plane the previous day. We used their shuttle into central Ubud and that worked well. We can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

We could not fault our stay at The Samaya. The staff couldn't do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible. 5-star service with well-trained, friendly staff. Our villa was spacious and well-equipped. The pool was the perfect temperature. We had a couples massage at the spa, which was incredible, with a great view over the river. Daily afternoon tea, delicious breakfast options and evening turn down service was great. The location was lovely and quiet, and the free shuttle service into town was around 15 - 30 minutes, depending on traffic. The Samaya Ubud is a great place for a couples retreat. Highly recommended.

Ít was the most memorable 3 days stay at this resort. We stayed here in mid January 2024, and we had such a wonderful time in the villa by the Ayung river. The place was so beautiful and peaceful with the river sound, the ambiance so restful that we would love to be back there in no time. We enjoyed the bountiful breakfast at the hilltop every morning, taking a buggy up and walking back to our villa. We loved the afternoon tea and dinner at Swept Away restaurant sit by the river, it was the wonderful feeling with the best services from all staff, we even had a chance to talk to Putu, a very genuine, kind hotel manager who taking time to talk with each one of us in the restaurant. I booked the energizing massage on the second day and it was the best experience, the huge room looking out to the flowing river, the gentle hands, the blissful moments that I will never forget, hopefully will be back again. I also loved the morning trekking with Rednita, our butler who took us on a walk by the river and the rice fields, we also had a chance to visit his home in the nearby village and listened to his stories about Bali customs. So many wonderful things that were so captivating, so beautiful memories that we will never forget at this Samaya Ubud Bali. The best experience in a lifetime. So thankful to all the people we met here, they are so warmth, kind, so eager to help, I will remember these kindness they have given us forever.

an incredible hotel hidden in Ubud. set on the side of a hill, the staff are really friendly and helpful and the manager made a point to introduce himself when we arrived. the breakfast it at the top of the hill and so has incredible views across the valley. the rooms are down the hill and they take you there on golf buggies. at the bottom, there is a small restaurant next to the river. we were lucky enough to be upgraded to the villas next to the river, each villa seems to have its own private pool, and cabana at the end of the garden. the rooms are all incredibly well furnished with a jacuzzi to boot. there is a free shuttle into the main town.

We first visited the Samaya in 2022 when we had booked a Royal Candle Light dinner at their restaurant "swept away." Already then, we knew we wanted to actually stay at the Samaya. We initially had planned on spending 10 nights in the north of Bali, but due to the weather, we spontaneously changed our mind and grabbed an awesome deal by booking directly through the Samaya Hotel. And we are so glad we did! We found our little slice of paradise at the Samaya and will definitely return for more. The grounds are breathtaking: the reception and the breakfast restaurant are located on top, overlooking the lush river valley and rice fields. The villas are nestled along the hill down to the Ayung river, but don't worry: a buggy will take you to/from the villa. We enjoyed a lunch at the "Swept Away" restaurant, right by the river. We highly recommend enjoying a meal or two there. The menu is excellent, and the staff is flawless. If you want to treat yourself, then please book a Royal Candle Light dinner! It is a very romantic and unforgettable experience. We had - thanks to a very kind upgrade - an Ayung river valley. It features a huuuuuge (indoor) bathroom and a large bedroom facing the beautiful private garden. The room has everything one could ask for: mini bar, TVs, amenities, a make-up desk, a very comfortable bed (the most comfortable one we had), fresh fruits, etc. The villa also has its own pool, which we greatly appreciated on the hot & humid days. What made our stay at the Samaya truly unforgettable is the staff. Every single staff member knew our names and knew what we had been up to on a particular day. They asked about us, and we chatted with them about this and that. We felt like people and not just like numbers of guests flying through! Thank you to all of them for making us feel appreciated! All the staff went above and beyond to accommodate us, and they truly made our stay very special. This is not a good-bye but a "sampai jumpa lagi". We will be back to enjoy more of this little piece of paradise on earth.

We visited this hotel whilst my parents were staying here and we liked it so much that we booked in a few nights ourselves. It is so hard to put into words how beautiful our time was here. First of all, the villas are the epitome of luxury, the best you will possibly find in Bali, secondly, the food at both restaurants is fantastic. There is not a single thing to be disliked on the menu. The spa is beautiful, the ladies are amazing at their job and my partner and I got a complimentary couples massage for my birthday which was so thoughtful of the hotel to do for us. The setting of this hotel is so peaceful, it really is an oasis not far from the vibrance of the city centre. But the star point of this hotel is the staff, I have travelled to many hotels and I have NEVER been welcomed at a hotel like I was here. From the manager to the maids, everyone is on hand to help make your experience the best possible. It was the perfect place to spend my 21st birthday and I made memories here that I will cherish forever. The hotel kindly put on a romantic riverside dinner for us - to thank us for staying with them !- and I was lost for words with the generosity of this place. I would visit Bali again just for this hotel. Everyone is so friendly, you feel the real Indonesian culture flowing through this place. Special thanks to Komang the restaurant manager for putting on the beautiful dinner for us, and to the general manger Putu for making our overall stay magical. We will definitely be returning (apologies it took so long to write this review!)

We chose the Samaya for our honeymoon and had such a wonderful experience that we want to return in the future. When we arrived, we were given a warm welcome and were delighted to find out that our room had been upgraded free of charge. We were taken to our room via a buggy, as the distance from the villa and reception is a bit of a walk. They had prepared beautiful flower decorations for our arrival at the villa and even a honeymoon cake and drinks. The villa was tranquil, clean and had every thing you would need. Its scenic surrounding and private pool felt like something out of a movie. They provide every little commodity that you could think of, including, loofahs, bath salts, mouthwash, several mineral water bottles, razors etc. And each item gets replenished each day by the cleaners. You get given new fresh fruit everyday and some biscuits too on occasion. The housekeeping is very thorough and considerate. The restaurants and the views they offer are out of this world. The scene restaurant which provides breakfast has breathtaking views of the rice fields and trees, whilst the swept away restaurant which provides afternoon tea and dinner offers the stunning and relaxing riverside view. The service and food are both excellent, everything is made to perfection and the presentation is on point. Definitely recommend the special green juice and baked goods for breakfast. The coffee is lovely too! As part of our honeymoon package, we had a candlelit dinner by the river. It felt like a dream, so much effort was put into our meal to make it a memorable and amazing experience, which it was. Special thank you to Komang for making it extra special with all the little details and for making time to discuss our preferences for that evening. The spa was a treat, so much so that we went everyday. The women there were wonderful, a pleasure to talk to and remembered all our preferences for treatment. Me and my husband always came out feeling so relaxed yet reenergised at the same time. The spa is located next to the river which makes the spa experience all that more incredible and relaxing. The biscuits and fresh cold lemongrass water with every spa visit is the icing on the cake. Every member of staff really go above and beyond to make it the best experience they can for you. The manager always makes time to check in and conversate. The people here are some of the most sincere and thoughtful people we have come across. It was a bittersweet ending to the trip when saying goodbye to the staff and the beautiful Samaya. We appreciate Komang and Putu coming to say goodbye specifically. Thank you to everybody at the Samaya who made our honeymoon so special and an experience we will never forget. Zara and Zeshan x
