Top Tips from our Experts

Destination Specialist

For a romantic evening make sure you book a "100 candle dinner" at the Swept Away restaurant. You get a six course menu and your own waiter for the evening but the real wow factor is the private setting decorated with candles and flower petals.

Amazing 6 nights at The Samaya!

North Providence, Rhode Island, United States

My husband and I decided to stay at The Samaya after doing much research. It is our first time in Bali and we were traveling from Hong Kong after visiting family. After a long day of travel we came to the Samaya and immediately thought it was breathtaking. From the moment we arrived every staff member was so attentive and friendly! We had booked a hillside villa and when we arrived we were told that the entire water system in the resort was not functioning. This was not the hotels’s fault but all we wanted was a hot shower and to relax. It was very late and staff members were working hard to fix the issue. When it was close to midnight and we still couldn’t shower the manager came and spoke to us and upgraded us to an Ayung Villa for the night so we could shower. Instead of making us repack he let us stay there the entire 6 nights which was wonderful!!!! While staying here we went to the Spa on two separate occasions. Let me tell you the treatments were the best that I have ever gotten!!! Yes they are a little bit higher priced then some of the cheap places in Ubud but still were more affordable than what we get in the U.S. I would go every day if I could!!! The women were so professional and the spa room was a beautiful setting. We went to Ubud once to get a different experience and I wanted to jump off the table it was horrible. I regretted not doing another day at The Samaya Spa. We also ate at Swept Away twice for dinner. The first time we had wanted Table 11 but were told it was taken for the night so they upgraded us to table 62 which was an even better view right by the river. It was delicious both nights and the service was impeccable. Everyone you run into at this hotel knows your name and makes conversation with you. They are willing to help you in any way and make you feel so comfortable! The staff also clean your room twice a day. I was so impressed that even though you are in the middle of the jungle, they do an excellent job of keeping insects and creatures out of your room. I didn’t even see many insects anywhere in the hotel! Very, very impressive! One night I wanted to purchase a flower bath and it was too late so they did it for us the next night for no cost. Overall we had a wonderful time here and are sad to be leaving!! If you have the chance to stay here I highly recommend it! You won’t regret it! Thank you everyone at The Samaya for making our stay memorable.

Stunning place!

Peterhead, United Kingdom

Loved our stay at The Samaya Ubud. We had a villa with pool and it was fantastic to be able to relax here, we had family join us for a couple of days and we spent them together by our pool with a few drinks. They were made very welcome visitors. Room was spacious, clean and the bathroom was huge, with lovely quality toiletries. We only ate in the restaurant on one occasion but it was a delicious meal within a wonderful setting by the river. Every member of staff was so polite and everyone greeted you by name. The manager goes out of his way to talk and welcome guests which was a lovely gesture. Breakfast was off menu and not buffet style, which was much better, everything made freshly for you and the choice was great. We had ours in the restaurant as the view is just beautiful but you can have it in your villa if you prefer. It is a short drive into Ubud town but the Samaya provides a free car to take you and pick you up, so it cost us nothing to go there in the evening. Ubud is very vibrant and full of shops and restaurants, so the Samaya is just an oasis away from it all. I had my birthday there and got a lovely cake presented to me, sadly I never got to eat it as we were just finished breakfast and heading out for the day, but it was a lovely gesture. I would highly recommend staying here, a little more expensive than other places in Ubud, but worth the splurge, I would love to return again one day.
