The hotel is not too elaborate in the furnishings and amenities but this is made up for with beautiful surroundings and more importantly, friend and efficient staff. Tastefully designed villas. Great value for money. I'd recommend it for sure.

Our Riverside Villa was Robin Leach - Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous. The Villa was beautiful, the Staff was the most hospitable we have ever encountered in our worldly journey's. The food was delicious, from our villa breakfast served riverside, to 100 Candle Light Dinner, to Cabana Villa Diner, to Swept Away Riverside Lunch. The Samaya Bali oozed romance....

I booked the hotel because it was nº1 on tripadvisor. The villa was superb. No time limit breakfast. The Spa is very nice maybe a bit expensive compared to other services. But what impressed me the most was the restaurant next to the river, so romantic!! The service and the menus always top. If you have the chance book the...

We recently stayed at The Samaya Ubud as part of our honeymoon tour of Indonesia, we were expecting great things from the other reviews plus our hotel manager in the Lombok Lodge proclaimed we were going to stay in the best hotel in Bali. There are positives to the experience but we unfortunately had many negatives and frightening experiences too....

The staff did everything and took care of every need with pleasant smiles, called you by name & desire to please. The managers greet you and check on your stay through out your visit. The rooms very zen/welcoming. The villas very comfortable with relaxing sounds from the river. It's very hilly so the staff will pick you up with golf...

I will come back to edit this review as I promised all the amazing staff at the Samaya a full review. Quite simply the best hotel my girlfriend and I have ever stayed in. I've never encountered such friendly and attentive staff. If you are staying in Bali you MUST experience this hotel.

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Samaya May 9-13. The Samaya is a truly special place. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. (Special shout out to Tanti for helping us find our way to Lombok.) The Villa was spectacular. And, the view from the breakfast table was nothing short of breathtaking. I recommend this exceptional hotel to anyone...

I came here in mid-May 2015 with my fiance. It was brilliant. Service was top-notch. Everyone was so friendly. We did our pre-wedding photoshoot in Bali and the hotel staff was so nice to allow us to take some pictures around the hotel premises without charging us anything. I recommend everyone to come here and stay.

We booked this hotel for a honeymoon trip. It was very pleasant and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We also tried the restaurant, which serves a great seafood bbq and other delights close to the river in a very scenic environment.
