I have stayed at Samarii on multiple occasions and have until this visit been very pleased. The grounds are beautiful and it is easy to see how the monks of a century ago could find solitude to commune with God. Unfortunately the first night of our stay was dominated by loud music and partying until 2 AM. The next night... More

Highly recommend staying here! We stayed from the week of August 8th to August 15th of this year (2015). Every morning we would wake up and go to the buffet, and that always stared our day off great. Delicious, and fresh. After that we would either walk to the craft market which is very close, go tan at the pool,... More

It was comfortable, but had some ups and downs. It is more for a couple than for a family vacation. I enjoyed the food because I love trying new things and it was decently clean. The room was different then most rooms in other resorts, meaning it was unique (as the title states). Overall, good stay.

We had a really great time. We went with couples of friends and we were not expecting what we found there. The view of the mountains is pretty, for who wants to relax, take some days to enjoy yourself, this is definitely the place. The breakfast is good as weel.

It's a great spot to relax, had a good time there. It's cozy, comfortable, clean, the food is good as well. Our room was good, a little small but for the price offered its still worth. I like the outside area as well, definitely I would come back to spend some days again.

My family and I stayed in Samari Spa this past weekend and had a great time. It was very peaceful and my children's first time experience a spa. (This was a great first impression for them). The jacuzzi was extremely clean and the sauna really helped me get relaxed! It was an awesome trip and would likely go again!
