The Samaya Ubud 

Gloriously green and serene

A peaceful escape of rice paddy and river views, authentic Balinese hospitality and contemporary design.

The Samaya Ubud is a verdant, river-facing retreat with a glamorous edge. Lavish villas look out to rice paddies, countryside or the Ayung River and all come with a private lap pool. Dining is a decadent seven-course tasting menu or casual yet romantic at Swept Away. Afternoon yoga, Balinese spa rituals and a jungle-style pool complete this pure-luxe escape.

Why we love The Samaya Ubud

  • With amazing views of Ayung River, the 100 Candles Dinner is a thoroughly romantic treat.

  • This tropical paradise feels a million miles away yet is only a 10-minute drive from main Ubud.

  • The spa is a spoiling escape of four hand massages and white rose milk baths

  • The two-hour Green & Culture Nature Trek through the local village and paddy field.

The Scene Restaurant is the hotel's beautiful breakfast setting, aptly named for its panoramic rice paddy and hillside views. Lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at Swept Away, an inviting riverside fusion restaurant that serves classic and contemporary local and international fare. The open-plan river deck is a great setting for an informal lunch, while the cosy lounge area is perfect for refreshing after-dinner beverages and tasty lighter bites.

Start your day with breakfast at Scene. Overlooking the rice paddy fields and surrounding hills, afternoon tea is also served here. Breakfast picnics can be arranged in the privacy of your villa.

Swept Away
Set on the banks of the Ayung River, Swept Away is open for lunch and dinner and serves a range of local and international dishes.
