This place is fantastic! The pictures simply do not do justice to how beautiful it is. My family and I (elderly parents, husband, two toddlers, and three family friends) stayed here for two nights and we loved it so much we canceled our day tours to spend time relaxing at this enchanting place. The kids were so pleased with the...

Loved spending a weekend at Samai.The owners are amazing people. The bedrooms all make you feel like you are in the middle of the rainforest so be prepared to enjoy nature! I'd highly recommend to treat yourself to a massage which is perfectly located overlooking the rainforest.

We arrived and were greeted with friendly staff and they served us a tasty lunch. The staff cleaned the pool immediately as it was quite dirty. The accomadations were really run down and we were the only guests. The spa is nonexistent, staff call a lady in that works in Montanita. The price that Samai charges for a massage is...

After almost 4 weeks of travel, we were weary and seeking a tranquil place to reconnect with nature and ourselves. Discovering Samai Lodge up that long and winding road and meeting Tania and Ed was in our minds, providence working its hand at guiding us to exactly where we needed most to be. The lodge in its self is comparable...

While not the easiest place to get too it was well worth the drive. The room was rustic but had all of the needed basics including hot water and internet. The cabanas are spread around the complex and I have no idea if they are all the same. We had one not far from the pool and grill area which...

The rustic, jungle hideaway might not be or everyone in need of room service, and prime rib. However those connected to the earth, aligned with themselves, and understand the value in time alone to grow as people inside and out, will enjoy this unreal setting and service, that has no equal in my opinion!
