we have been there for the second time, and this place is still one of the best in Ubud! discover it yourself, its just worth it! a magic place in the middle of peaceful ricefields.
BTW if you order spaghetti arrabiata for dinner, aks the crew and chef for special Bali-sambal - THIS is real arrabiata!

We really enjoyed our stay. The very few lovely bungalows are new, well designed and perfect located close to the center of Ubud but away from the traffic - just perfect! The staff is very friendly, incredible helpful and always with a smile ready to serve the guests. We decided to stay a day longer than actually planed and had to change a booking with Garuda. They managed everything, from the hotline to the online banking payment. Stefano is a great host, full of ideas, funny and obviously happy with what they have achieved! Thanks a lot for everything, Sebastian and Isabel

While even Ubud sometimes get crowded, this wonderful little hotel overlooking the serenity of the rice fields gives you the extra that you are looking for going to Ubud just a free lift from the hotel personnel on a motorbike away from town. Wonderful decorated rooms with a shower closer to nature that you can ever get. Food and staff perfect.
Price quality outstanding.
Going back to Ubud this is the place to stay

We loved staying at the Samara. The staff were lovely & the location just beautiful. We had the advantage of staying in the stunning rice fields but we were quickly transported back & forward to the centre of Ubud via scooter whenever we wanted. They supplied us with a phone that we could use to call them any time to arrange a pick up. The rooms were clean and large & the pool was the BEST ever - always warm and inviting! This accommodation offers very good value & I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Ubud.

We stayed here for 3 nights in November and had an amazing stay. It was at the end of our 3 week trip and we wanted to fully relax.
The accommodation is really good. Rooms and bathroom are very clean and comfortable. (open shower!) We stayed in room 4, close to the restaurant but still views of the ricefields and pool. The restaurant served a very good breakfast, you can pick eggs/pancakes/ fresh juices/ etc. Try the coffee on the menu (pay a little extra for that) super good Indonesian coffee on there.
Also the dinner was very good, Italian+ Indonesian food. We rented a scooter so we could leave when we wanted but they also drop and pick you up (i believe)when going to Ubud center. People/Staff are super friendly and professional here. We had a great stay and definately come back!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 have the best views of the rice fields
