We spent 5 nights here at the start of our honeymoon. Firstly, the staff here really make this place. They are all so lovely and really look after you. The Samara is about a 15 minute walk from the main street (sorry can't remember the name, but I'm talking about the main street at the corner near Lotus cafe and...

My daughter and I spent three nights at this delightful place. Loved the smallness of the place, loved the location which was rural and amongst rice fields but still close enough to walk in to The heart of Ubud. The villa was lovely, contemporary design, lovely big windows to look at the view (villa 5), with a comfy bed and...

The staff is great! They are very attentive and helped us out in all the possible ways! The hotel is small (only 8 suites I think), what makes you feel at home. The view of the rice fields make it even more relaxing. They gave us a cell phone with credit so we could use it during our stay to...

Fantastic to be collected from the airport, loved the final stretch to the villa by moped as no car access. 10 min walk from Ubud centre through rice fields and beautiful tiny streets. 5 star service, clean rooms, good air con. Lovely to have breakfast overlooking rice fields. Complimentary tea and local cakes min afternoon felt very colonial.

My wife and I had an exceptional stay at the Samara Villa (room one). Basically the Samara had everything we could ask for: - Beautiful settings amongst the rice fields (including fireflies in the evening!) - The pool is just the right size, not big but not too small. - The food at the restaurant was a very pleasant surprise....

THe hotel is located 10min walking from the center of Ubud, in the middle of breathtaking rice fields.

My wife and I had a short stay in the Samara Villas in Nov 2013. The hotel is ideally situated in the rice paddies about 500 metres outside of Ubud. If it is too far to walk then you can get free trips to and from the town by scooter. You also get a mobile phone just in case you...

My husband and I had a very enjoyable time staying at The Samara for 9 nights. The accommodation is in the rice fields, making it a great place to recharge and relax.
