We enjoyed a very fresh and tasty lunch (cooked while we waited) with some Bintang while we watched the ducks in the rice fields and the lizards in the garden. The service was friendly, the place was clean and the prices were very reasonable. There was a very good range of food options, including plenty for vegan, as well as...

We stayed at the Samara for five nights in march. Villa is located up the hill in the middle of rice fields so it offers a lovely view. It's quite close to Ubud very crowded and noisy main street, but still it has very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Samara is not reachable by car, but the company offers you a...

Lovely boutique hotel. Perfect location on a scooter-only path just outside of town. The staff was perfect. Very helpful and always available. Food was surprisingly good for such a small place. We will be back.

Our family stayed at the Samara as our first stop in Ubud area. Beautiful boutique style resort. Great food! So welcoming and quiet set in the rice fields close to center of Ubud. Ayu and the rest of the staff really made us feel special and welcomed. We loved Ubud and the vibe (started by the Samara) we ended staying...

Safe. Peaceful. Unique. My father, friends, and I experienced warm and caring service throughout our stay. We were greeted with fresh watermelon juice and cool towels, enjoyed complimentary breakfast and tea time each day, and appreciated the staff's attention to helping us balance relaxation with adventuring around Bali. The Samara staff is standout: chill, approachable, knowledgeable and all around awesome...

To feel so at home, so safe, so welcomed, so comfortable, is a rarity. The staff are like family. They truly care. The standard of accommodation, gardens and grounds is exceptional. But still homely and comfortable. Having been to bali so many times, we have no reason to tour. Our choice of location is ubud. The Samara Villas is our...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Samara. Situated in the rice fields within walking distance of Ubud (or the staff would take you on a motor scooter), the peace and quiet after the bustle of central Ubud was really welcome. The rooms were quiet, air conditioned but with an outdoor bathroom. Plenty of storage, free wifi and most of...

I spent just shy of 30 days at the Samara. The warmth, love & generosity of spirit from all the staff is overwhelming to describe. I felt completely embraced and cared for and nourished in all ways. Being a solo female traveller I felt completely safe and at ease, I was treated like family. If you are looking for an...

I can not say enough good things about this place. The service was impeccable, they serve tea and coffee each day alongside traditional treats. You will feel like royalty. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy, they became like family towards the end of our stay. BOOK NOW.
