Tucked away in Bali's Desa Kelusa Payangan district, Samsara Ubud offers a sanctuary to those who dream of the utmost indulgence amid an unspoilt paradise. Sounds like a fairy tale? Trust us: it’s not. Dubbed as the crème de la crème of laid-back luxury and the epitome of secluded chic, Samsara Ubud is located strategically where guests can experience a sense of calm, but also have the luxury of visiting the unhurried hustle of Ubud town, should they like it.


Ideal for couples who travel together, or families who are in need of an ultimate getaway on the Island of the Gods, Samsara Ubud is designed with luxury aesthetics in mind. The resort comprises 17 glorious villas: eight one-bedroom pool villas, six onebedroom deluxe pool villas, two two-bedroom pool villas, and one three-bedroom pool villa—the later only completed in July.

Each villa at Samsara Ubud, the smallest of which starts at a capacious 122 square metres, boasts spacious and elegant living and dining rooms complete with bathrooms featuring luxurious Makassar marble, double vanities, a deep-soaking bathtub along with separate indoor and outdoor showers, and a generously proportioned heated swimming pool. Could it get better? Perhaps it could. Guests who stay in the two- or three-bedroom villas get the chance to wake up gazing at blanketed mists thanks to uninterrupted views of the tropical rainforest.


For dining, guests can indulge in The Kelusa, which offers sumptuous cuisine and which is helmed by Chef Iwan Sutrisno and team. The dishes here celebrate a rich and diverse culinary history of Balinese and Indonesian food set against serene surroundings that guarantee exquisite dining experiences. Guests can also enjoy arranged meals in the privacy of their own villa at Samsara Ubud.

While staying at Samsara Ubud, all guests should visit the Chakra Spa, which provides a range of treatments from soothing massages to rejuvenating body scrubs, promising a state of perfect relaxation. Elsewhere, visitors can also experience a cinema under the stars at the specifically designed area set against the backdrop of verdant Payangan forests. Comfy bean bags and classic films like Casablanca and The Wizard of Oz can all be enjoyed by loved ones.

Samsara Ubud has a special treat for families with its Family Holiday Package in 2-and 3-bedroom pool villa, ideal for weekend breaks. Available until December 2019, the package includes roundtrip airport transfers, daily cups of ice cream for the little ones, a daily à la carte breakfast, a  omplimentaryc shuttle service to Ubud, and a 24-hour butler service, among other benefits.
