Very good 8.0
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.

Must try the in town Italian restaurant. Gr8 time
We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel has an Italian restaurant in the city that they told us about when we checked out. Seriously the two best pasta dishes my wife and I have tasted (I ordered the one that is the backdrop photo on the menu and it was prime prime). My only piece of advice for the staff is to promote it a bit more! The person that checked us in marked the restaurant on a map and said it is the hotel restaurant in the city, but it was sort of a side note that we are glad we did not overlook. When we noticed one of the owners or managers was Italian, we knew we had to give the restaurant a try! Maybe they should have a business card with a map on the back? The person who checked us in noticed it was my birthday on the second day of our stay, and without prompt from my wife, organized a celebration song and treat for breakfast. The staff gives you a ride to the village on their scooters which is a fun short adventure. I took a quick dip in the pool. It was cool and not luke warm like some places. The staff was extremely caring and did everything within their power to make us happy. One night my wife hit her head super hard late at night and the guy on staff got me ice and was really helpful with the situation. He just truly cared and we were very grateful.
