Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The position itself was beautiful, away from the busy Main Street. The staff were very accommodating in ferrying us to and from the Main Street on bikes. The villa was lovely but basic in amenities and a bit worn, ie mould on pool edges and borer eaten furniture. The two bedroom villa has an external staircase to upstairs which was tricky in the rain. We were disappointed that there was no restaurant or bar as advertised as were far from restaurants and they only offered Italian food delivery. Lovely position but not worth the $300 a night cost for these oversights.

Interesting stay at The Samara, Ubud
Suggest you get firmer mattresses for the rooms. It was nice waking up to see much greenery. It was for me, an almost death-defying ride on the motor bike through the narrow paths each time! They go really fast! We didn't know that that was the only way to get to your hotel. Suggest the hotel install container boxes at the back of the motorbikes for their staff to hold the luggage of their guests. This is to ensure their safety and will provide guests the assurance that their luggage will not fall off the bike during transportation. We totally enjoyed the serenity and beautiful surroundings, it is back to nature for us. My daughter like the quietness. It was overall a memorable stay for the three of us.

Home away from home
Greeted at The Samara by Stephano and his lovely team, you immediately feel at home. A 15 minute walk from the main road in Ubud, it's secluded from the traffic and noise in the serenity of the rice terraces. The distance to town is no issue because they provide a free bike shuttle to the Starbucks at the bottom Jalan Kajeng any time of day. You’re also provided with a phone to call the hotel and request a pick-up from the same spot (also 24 hours). My room was spotless and clean. The bathroom looked brand new and modern. The outdoor shower is perfect for the Ubud heat. The bed was very comfortable, the air-con flawless, no issues with Wi-Fi. Each room has a small balcony overlooking the pool, rice fields and immaculately kept gardens. The included breakfast was as good as any I’ve had at full-service restaurants in town. They even arranged a packed breakfast when I needed to leave at 2.30am for my Mount Batur trek! The kitchen is open for lunch and dinner, plus free refreshments at 4pm (which I sadly never got to attend as I was always exploring town). There’s really nothing not to love about this place, it was a joyous stay. You'll fall in love with what Stephano and his team have accomplished. You can tell the staff take pride in making your experience as relaxing as possible and before leaving you’ll feel like part of their family. Cannot recommend The Samara highly enough!

Quiet spot in bustling Ubud
Beautiful views from the hotel over the rice paddies. Staff was so friendly with great English. Hotel is walking distance to "downtown" Ubud, but far enought away from the bustle that it is a peaceful and relaxing spot. Breakfast was delicious! Vegetarian options available. Will definitely stay here again! One thing to note: if you are bringing a lot of luggage, cars can't quite make it up the narrow & steep path to the hotel - staff is wonderful and will certainly help you navigate that.
