I stayed at The Samara with one of my best friends in March and loved it. The most awesome thing about this place is the attention to detail and the genuine concern about whether or not you have a great time in Ubud. The owners and staff are incredibly attentive and cheerful. They think of absolutely everything; from recommending restaurants,...

We stayed for three nights at The Samara. Made picked us up from Denpasar after our flight was delayed over an hour and was the most cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was phenomenal, the property was pristine, and our private tour was amazing.

I cannot recommend the Samara enough! It is beautifully located in the rice paddies but still very close to town. It is a nice little walk, but if you like they offer free transportation. They give you a cell phone to use for local calls and to contact them. The breakfast is fantastic, but best of all is the unbelievably...

Location is really neat - just outside the city in more rural area (transport to/from the city center is included in the rate). Rooms are spotless, nice LCD tv with a ton of channels, decent wifi, refrigerator, hair dryer, and extremely comfortable bed. Pool is really nice and breakfast was spectacular. Many options and a full menu to choose from....

Beautiful location, situated among rice fields yet is still close to the town (the hotel arranges a free scooter shuttle to take you to the town). Staff were attentive, friendly and are eager to fulfill any requests. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Highly recommended for a stay in Ubud.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from a 4 day stay at the Samara. In addition to the fantastic setting, design and facilities of the hotel, it was the staff that made our stay so worthwhile. We had an incident whereby we used the hotel's dry cleaning service and an item came back damaged. Samara staff made every effort...

Stayed here last August with my husband. We were on a 30th Wedding Anniversary holiday to Asia/Australia. Can truthfully say our stay here was the highlight of the entire trip. It was so good, we stayed initially 5 nights and after our visit to Australia returned for a further 3 nights before returning to Ireland. Everything from the very caring...

We came looking for a peaceful and relaxing retreat and this is what we found - far enough from the crowds but not too far for an evening walk for dinner. The bungalows are simple, clean and well designed - equally relaxing inside or outside on the terrace. In the morning we relaxed watching the fields next door being prepared...

we have been there for the second time, and this place is still one of the best in Ubud! discover it yourself, its just worth it! a magic place in the middle of peaceful ricefields. BTW if you order spaghetti arrabiata for dinner, aks the crew and chef for special Bali-sambal - THIS is real arrabiata!
