    Birthday getaway!”

    Much needed break from stressful city life. Loved the ambiance and view. Food is delicious. A little bit pricey though but it's okay. I just wish that they have citronella scented candles or any scented katols to help kill mosquitoes. Haha. But overall, our stay was pleasant. Loved their pool. Not that crowded.

    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.

    Pros: place is just few kms away from kamay ni hesus and air summit gourmet. 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 Slice of Heaven with some noise !!”

    Place is really as beautiful and serene as the photos. There is beauty wherever you look --the fabulous resort landscaping overlooking the lush green paddy fields. Food was excellent and the staff courteous and helpful. Unfortunaly there is always a snake in Eden. There were 3 workers who were welding / drilling/hammering something or the other all day for the 2 days we were there. It really disturbed the otherwise serene surroundings. I understand that the resort is a work in progress but the constant noise was the only fly in the perfect ointment .

    This is a quiet place that is far from the hustle and bustle. Ups: Employees are courteous and attentive; facilities are clean; everything is new. Down: Next door visitors can be loud as sound isolation is poor in the hut-style accomodations.

    Best for Rich people!”

    We are so much disappointed with the foods! Expensive and small portions. If your travelling to this location better eat to Buddy's pizza instead of getting meals here. The place is nice and cold when we get there but the villas are limited to 7-9 i think. if you love flowers and garden's this place is ok. but if your expecting good foods better look somewhere else to avoid disappointments.

    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.

The whole resort and accompanying rice fields are very photogenic, and the owners of Samkara are lovely.

    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..
