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.

The Samara Villas is just everything you are looking for when you want to enjoy Ubud to the fullest. The location is great, in the middle of the local rice fields, just outside the busy city centre of Ubud. Close enough to everything that Ubud has to offer, but at the same time in the heart of all the beautiful...

Love everything about The Samara. It's only a five-minute motorbike ride (which the villa provides for free) from the heart of Ubud town, yet it feels like a world away. Surrounded by lush rice paddies, The Samara puts you right smack in the middle of traditional Balinese life whilst enjoying the comforts of a modern, beautifully-designed, and well-equipped space. Service...

Arrived here for our honeymoon from the outset the team at Samara treated us (and all the other guests) like we were the only couple here. All of the staff are exceptionally skilled in making each person feel special, nothing is too much trouble. The villas themselves are perfect in every way and tended to with an impeccable house keeping...

Very nice hotel, amazing views of the rice fields and staff very helpful. Really nice breakfast menu cooked to order. No car acces, but hotel offers a motorbike ride to town for free, but if you want to walk, it's just 10 minutes.

Since there were not many options to choose from international chain hotels, i chose Samara with all great reviews and it was one of my best decision made in Bali trip. It was just lovely villa with 6 rooms (they have pool villa as...

Our 5 day stay at the Samara Villas in late August 2016 was a return visit for both my husband and myself. The welcome we received from all staff, and the emotions we experienced on return were like coming back home to a very special place. The small staff went out of their way to ensure that all our needs...
