The Samara
Ranked #14 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2011

We booked our stay at Samara without actually knowing what to expect as no reviews were available at that time. 
The place is absolutely stunning, the owners are incredibly nice and the staff is equally good. Everything there is perfect - from the peaceful  environment in the middle of the rice fields to the personalized service catering to every whim of ours, not forgetting the outstanding design blending the villas to their surroundings. We had two meals in the restaurant, both very tasty and reasonably priced, and as a nice touch we were able to drink our own wine we brought from overseas, because generally the choice in Indonesia is very limited.
We got so relaxed there that we forgot our credit card at the front desk after check out and the owners, Stefano and Yudi drove out of Ubud to return the card to us, which gave us the occasion the hug them and say Good Bye. We had only one problem there ....  we had to leave.... :-(  We would definitely love to come back any day soon, if only for those breakfast banana pancakes!

We stayed in Seminyak, Ubud and Jimbaran during our 12-day trip to Bai. In a country where smiles, friendliness and hospitality is a norm, The Samara has managed to set an even higher standard on these qualities. We believe that the presence of host Stefano and his wife Yudi has much to do with this. Their love and passion for what they do are present at The Samara. The rooms are impeccable in all aspects - ultra clean, comfortable bed and tastefully furnished. Congratulations, Stefano and Yudi - please stay true to the business values that you have created and we hope to be back one day! MotherofTwo, The Netherlands

Room Tip: Ask for rooms furthest from the swimming pool.

I am currently staying at this new resort & I am already planning when I can get back here. 10 minutes walk from the busy main street through beautiful rice fields is this amazing complex. There are only 6 rooms which are beautifully appointed & take in the most beautiful views to wake up to. The management have though of everything & check to make sure you have everything you need without being intrusive. The staff are very friendly & have exceptional English. I have had breakfast & dinner at the resort & both have been far better than all the resorts of this price bracket. Book it now & you will not regret it.

This was my first experience in Ubud and it far exceeded my expectations. The location is perfect... it's along this wonderful little trail which runs through immense ricefields and leads you all the way into the forest on one end and right to the city center on the other end. It's a beautiful property, very nice rooms and super friendly staff. Oh and my favorite part is the outdoor shower! :)

We went back to Bali after 17 years and we found this lovely place, in the middle of the rice fields, like an oasis, peaceful and beautiful.
The management was very friendly and ready to help us for any request. Unlike many other places in Ubud, these people speak a very good English and not only English, so you don't get frustrated trying to make yourself understood.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
We were at a walking distance from downtown and we loved every moment we spent there. We'll definitely go back next time!
