My partner and I stayed at the Samaya for 3 nights in May 2012. From the get-go, the service was brilliant. Our flight was 4 hours late and arrived at 2am in the morning where our driver was waiting the entire 4 hours and still managed to greet us with a smile.
We arrived and everything was just perfect. We were upgraded to the River view villa and I have never experienced something so stunning in all my travels. The room was immaculate and the service exceeded our expectations 10 fold. EVERYONE in the resort new our names and we were never left wanting anything. It was my partners birthday and the staff surprised him with a cake :)
Breakfast was absolutely delicious - the best scrambled eggs and freshly made bread I have every tasted. All the juices we ordered were freshly squeezed with any fruit you want and included in our breakfast. While we ate our breakfast, the resort manager came and introduced himself to us and really made us feel so welcome.
The plunge pool was exceptionally clean and an absolute delight. We could see the river from our room villa and it truely felt like we were in paradise.
We had breakfast overlooking the rice paddies which was absolutely stunning. We did not want to leave. Till this day we talk about the Samaya and how we miss it! We will definitely be back. It's certainly worth every cent!
