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...

Best place i've been on our holiday in Indonesia. People are friendly. All the little thinks they do makes Samara a place to come back when we go to Ubud again. Place is nice and quit. And a nice view over the ricefield. And when you go down it isn't that far from the centre of Ubud. Love this place....

We stayed at The Samara Villas for 7 days in August 2016 and had a wonderful time. It was a great location - close to the city but in beautiful scenery and peacefully quiet. The complimentary scooter rides from the main street of Ubud were appreciated once our feet had gotten sore from walking. Pack light (you don't need much...

Modern rooms in a peaceful area. Worth staying 1-3 nights while in Ubud. Friendly staff, cosy place outside of the main city within walking distance. Located in the rice field. We had a huge problem with canalisation and odour caused by it but have been offered a private villa in compensation. Villa recommended for a family/friends stay. Standard rooms very...

Stayed three nights at The Samara and were very pleased with most aspects of the hotel. The location is special, with easy access to lovely rice field walks which we enjoyed from sunrise to sunset. The welcome and orientation from Made at Reception was top class. All staff we interacted with were lovely and professional. The grounds and pool area...

A very calm and nice resort located in the rice fields. The staff is extremely friendly and provide excellent service. Restaurant make great food - also the Italian part of the menu card.

Samara is a quite a hidden gem in Ubud, Bali. The staff is the absolute best that i have seen in my years of travel. The hotel is a small establishment in the middle of rice paddy fields. Excellent mid range luxury rooms with great service. The best part was the breakfast at their restaurant where you could watch the...

The Samara is located close to UBUD but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Highly recommend that you use the hotel transfer we didn't and wished we had they are reasonably priced and will organise the hotel to pick you up from the parking spot. Room was clean outside shower was nice. TV has...
