The Samaya Bali Ubud
Ranked #4 of 196 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Samaya Ubed is a great hotel, very private (you hardly see the other guests) and it feels very genuine yet exclusive. We had a garden villa (i think this is the standard room) and it was excellent, it felt very private and the pool was really big. We only stayed 3 night before we went to the sister hotel Samaya Semyniak but we wish we stayed more nights in Ubud since the hotel and service is better than in Semyniak. At least if you are looking for something quiet and peaceful.

The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is good and the SPA is amazing, I had a fantastic Baliniese massage, the best I had in Bali.

We did the complimentary "culture-walk" -very interesting to see how a normal family live and to know more about the Balinese way of living but it also makes you feel a bit guilty when you come back yo your luxury "palace".... We also did the complimentary bike-ride to see some of the rice fields- wonderful evening if it was raining. it is very nice that the hotel offers these excursions.

Perfect hotel for honeymooners! :)

We just left after six nights staying here for our honeymoon. We could not have picked a better place in Ubud to stay. Our pool villa on the river was everything as advertised. The service of the staff was second to none and the morning breakfast was varied and delicious.

Apologies for the delay in posting my review!

Pure Perfection..... What else can I say!!

From arrival to departure of this flawless hotel, there are no words to describe our experience apart from amazing and perfect.

The Samaya Ubud is located inland within the tropical cultural heartland of Bali a total contrast compared to the Samaya Seminyak, which is a beach located hotel.

First and foremost the staff are what make this hotel an unforgettable memory.

The hotel has been completed to a very high 5-Star standard, the accommodation is immaculate and has a home away from home feel, and the additional bonus is your own private pool, the only downside was that the entire pool was the same depth at 6ft; I did not use it but my husband loved it!!

You are allocated with a 24-Hour butler but we did not really use their services, we just wanted them to come over for a chat rather than do anything for us. Reception staff was constantly on hand to meet all our needs and requirements and to be honest the service we received from every member of staff was flawless.

Samaya Ubud but maintain identical service and standards as their sister hotel the Samaya Seminyak but they are slight differences.

You can have breakfast whatever time of the day suits you with extensive choices, again you can have as many dishes as you desire. The food is sublime; there is a very high standard of chefs and staff employed within this hotel, which makes your dining experience regardless of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner an absolute delight and pleasure.

The Swept Away restaurant located by the river is breathtaking, the A La Carte menu was sublime, the service attentive and consistent. You can choose to have any of your meals during the day at this location, which is absolutely beautiful.

There is a complimentary car service (a lovely gesture) that will drive you in and pick you up from Ubud when and whatever time suits you, to be honest nothing surprised us the longer we were stayed, the service is not only fabulous but also second to none.

You are left to your own desires throughout your stay and nothing is too much trouble for the staff, we miss them dreadfully and think about them regularly along with the lovely Manager’s Wayan and Putu.

The only other major downside was having to leave, you are so far away but you will always in our hearts, we miss you all..... Hopefully, we will be able to visit again in the not too distant future.

I came here on honeymoon in early May. We had read a lot about the place but staying here exceeded our expectations, there is good reason why this is the No 1 hotel in Bali. Staff were friendly ,very attentive and everyone one of them knew us by name (even the ones who we had not met before.) Stunning location, great food at the Swept away restaurant and beautiful rooms and views!!

My 3rd trip to bali and this is the best villa i have stayed in by far. A bit expensive but you def get what you pay for. It is secluded but still quite near the town centre, overlooking the padi fields so was a great view while having breakfast. Breakfast can also be delivered to your villa at no extra cost and there is no set timing for breakfast which is great for late risers.There is also a free shuttle to town at almost any time which is a great convenience as some other hotels charge for in villa dining as well as shuttle services if the time is outside the fixed timetable. Riverside villa has its own private pool and best ever jacuzzi and buggy services to take you from your villa to the lobby. The massage was one of the best but they didn't have many choices for facials which could be better done elsewhere. The staff were immaculate and service was top notch as everyone is always greeting you and looking for things in which they can help with. We had dinner at the swept away restaurant and the staff asked if there was anything wrong with the food when they noticed I didn't eat half of it and when I said i was just full and not because of the food quality, they offered to bring it back to the villa for me to finish later. Food was just ok tho, no wow factor so should try one of the better restaurants outside. There were 2 free activities, a 1 hr morning walk to the padi fields and a 90 min cycling tour. the cycling was great on the way out as its downhill and passes through nice back alleys but was pretty tough coming back uphill on the roads. All these + the afternoon tea, turn down services and the hassle free check in/out was great value for $. I would recommend this place anytime over some of the other villas in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms near the river is great for easier access to the restaurant and spa without having to call the...
