This was my third stay at Sama's, but the first visit for my three book club friends. A group of ladies aged from 43 to 63, we couldn't have asked for a better place to relax, rejuvenate and venture out to explore Ubud and surrounds. As always, the staff were friendly and helpful from the smiling Dwi on the front... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at their private villa with a pool. It is paradise. I still think about that place all the time :) They prepared the room with towel decorations and lots of flower petals (so sweet!) The nicest + softest pillows and bed (I can compare with the 2 other hotels we've stayed in Bali).... More

Perfectly located - within easy walking distance to all, but away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. Exactly what you need after a busy and exhausting day seeing the sights.

The hotel is located in the center of Ubud, walking distance to the palace - but quiet and serene. We loved the nice rooms/villas located in an amazing tropical garden. The staff is very friendly and helpful! It was really a great experience. If you come to Ubud, stay there.

This place is close to the centre of Ubud and yet an oasis of green and quiet space... it almost looks like a tidy and clean jungle through the alleys from reception to your own cottage.
