We booked Sama's because of its great reviews on TA. However, when we got there, we simply didn't think it deserves such a high rating on TA. The people there were absolutely polite and easy to work with. However, the cottages were pretty old. We first started off with the largest cottage room there, which had a full kitchen, day...

Each 'cottage' has it's own veranda and is set in lovely green, lush gardens. The rooms are spacious and have mosquito nets but would still benefit from having some repellent plug ins in the rooms due to the stream being nearby and all of the gardens surrounding the cottages. The sound of nature in the morning are lovely to wake...

Stayed here for three nights last week and loved it. The rooms are quaint little cottages set in lush gardens . There is plenty of wildlife so maybe not for the squeamish but my wife and I loved it. Breakfast service was great and they were flexible about service times to suit are needs. Lovely helpful staff and the location...

This place is actually lovely in many ways! Quite, great staff, good service, nice athmosphere. The only reason I give them an average rating is because the huts are built in an old balinese fashion with gaps here and there, where basically anything can crawl/fly into your room. And I'm just a bit too old for this.. But if you...

Dear helgudinna, Thankyou so much for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay overall and apologise for any creepy crawlies and flying insects that were around and could get in. Unfortunately Bali is renowned for this and our property was built in the 1980’s with many renovations since then, improving the standards as we go. We have tried...

We stayed at Sama's in early December for 4 days as did two other couples from our scuba group prior to heading out to another island for diving. As reflected in other reviews, it is very secluded, feels like your in a forest-jungle type setting, but only a 5-7 minute walk to the main street through Ubud. Our cottage, superior...

Stayed here for just one night, so I can't say much about it. A pretty place; each of the cottages is set amongst lush greenery. Location is smack in the middle of the Ubud tourist area, so you should have little problem getting around. Also, there was a loud, affection ginger cat that joined us for the night. Perfect.

Sama's was one of the highlights of my trip. Ubud is really crowded and chaotic but Sama's is very tranquil and a break from the bustling street. You enter off a small but busy road but the path to Sama's is private and covered with Ivy, sculptures, a fountain with goldfish and greenery. My cottage was secluded, near the covered...

I stayed here in November and it's paradise. The cottages are clean and so lovely to sleep in and the verandahs are perfect for sitting and reading (and very private). The pool is small, but spotlessly clean and deep and it feels like you're in a private oasis (I had the pool to myself regularly). The gardens are beautiful and...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at their private villa with a pool. It is paradise. I still think about that place all the time :) They prepared the room with towel decorations and lots of flower petals (so sweet!) The nicest + softest pillows and bed (I can compare with the 2 other hotels we've stayed in Bali)....
