    Hi. we stayed at SAMKARA Resort and the place is really perfect. Although walang communication directly sa lobby or frontdesk of the resort but over all its awesome. We enjoyed the view and the ambiance of the place. But the only problem lang is the guy who assigned at night. Parang tinatamad. But its OK.

    Relaxing Hideaway in Lucban”

    First time in Lucban and we were happy to have stayed overnight in the colorful and quaint nipa hut-style accommodations of Samkara. Room was large, bed was comfortable, and the view from the balcony was lovely and soothing. The owners were warm, kind, and welcoming. They have an organic farm at the back and have lots of exciting activities planned for the future. Highly recommended and we look forward to visiting again.

    A cool and tranquil retreat in nature ”

    This is our second time to Samkara. The lodging is quaint, the food is wonderful, and the service is great. This is a great spot to take time off with a loved one or have a short family outing. The whole resort and accompanying rice fields are very photogenic, and the owners of Samkara are lovely.

The cool breeze adds to the serenity of the place. staff are very kind and accommodating, food is also great, and i personally think it’s priced reasonably. Nice comfy bed and pillows. Must try their crispy suman, and i love the guyabano wine. Cons: Poor signal and no wifi (but i guess if you go here for meditation or retreat then it’s fine). Cash only basis. And i hope they can add other amenities for kids. There isn’t really a lot to do here. But then again if you are into a “doing nothing” escape then this is the place for you.

    A Nature Sanctuary away from the city”

    A peaceful place to unwind, be with nature while being with your special someone :). I agree with the other reviewer that the small matters like a cobweb, a dirty aircon filter and burnt out lightbulb keep this place from being perfect. But those are acceptable. Staff and ojts are friendly and accommodating too. Kudos to Ms. Cristina and Krizel. Definitely a place to visit while in Lucban. Secret Tip: Order the fried biya for breakfast. ;)

    The place is very beautiful, very relaxing and you really feel that your out of the city... The food is good (especially inihaw na kalabaw!) very accomodating staff and such a nice place to stay in. The best place to stay if you want to relax and have a break. Hopefully they add minibar in their room and improve the cable tv interruption. But all in all it was nice place, we surely come back here..

    Staff were very friendly, polite and accommodating. The room was a good size, comfortable and clean, the atmosphere relaxing and quiet. My only concern was that the room was not screened. I'd like to be able to have the option to leave the balcony door open and feel the cool breeze rather than have the AC going all the time. Bathroom window should be screened too to prevent bugs from entering.

    When we arrived at this place we were greeted warmly and taken to our room immediately. The room was nice, but the bed was not comfy at all. The best thing about this place is the surroundings, its beautiful and relaxing. We didnt enjoy the breakfast was not alot of choice and the constant playing of christmas songs, but other than that was very nice stay.

    Location is good. Wouldn't have a hard time finding the place as it just rests along the highway. Every spot would give you a "happy fiesta" vibe, giving you a different kind of peace. Dip into the pool and you'll be shocked by how cold the water is. Food through is overpriced. Free breakfast buffet was nice.

    Has Potential but Needs Renovations ”

    If you’ve never stayed at a rural mountain setting, you might enjoy the novelty. As for me, I disliked the unheated pool; the failure to provide paper slippers or hangers automatically; and the broken water heater (fixed the next morning). The other problem is the difficulty reaching the destination—it’s above the main town and you’ll need a car to reach it. Consider Batis Aramin Resort instead. (June 2018)
