A small hotel with only 9 rooms with a lovely & gracious staff. A quiet place away from the hustle of the city but only as tuk tuk ride from Pub Street. Special mention for Su Kim on reception who looked after us royally. Highly recommend The Samar if you want the Secret Retreat in a tourist town. Food excellent as well. Try the Sambai rice wine that our hosts Christian & Bertran offer us a taste of. A large pool in the middle of the retreat completes the picture of an oasis.
