 The Ubud Village Hotel provides a boutique and tranquil base – in the very center of Ubud on the towns main Monkey Forest Road. Following the enormous success of Eat, Pray, Love, a best-selling book that was subsequently made into a film in 2010, Ubud soon started to feature on many a travel wish-list. And for anyone who likes to have immediate access to a towns top sights – this hotel is perfect.

The hotel is designed to blend in with its natural jungle surroundings, balconies are draped in vines, there are ponds indoors and out. There are two swimming pools to choose from, and guests are invited to learn about authentic Balinese life, through daily temple offerings, morning yoga or a cooking class to discover Balis secret culinary tricks.

Rooms are spacious, stylish and comfortable, and small details are not overlooked, from mood lighting to the hotel’s signature window seat which is a definite highlight that prominently features in every room category.

No visit to Ubud would be complete without sometime spent focusing on your wellness. Kama Karana Spa at the Ubud Village Hotel is a perfect place to explore this. There is a holistic approach to wellness here – with many treatments focusing on restorative massage and balancing body, mind and spirit.

There are many dining options in Ubud – but we would recommend exploring each of the four options at the hotel. From casual drinks and snacks around the pools, Mexican cuisine at the vibrant street-side café to the fine dining at Maluku restaurant. Regardless of your mood, there is sure to be something you fancy.
