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.

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...
