Hotels in Ubud

The private setting alone—a scenic hillside among lush rice fields and tropical valleys—is enticing enough for travelers looking for a relaxing or romantic getaway.

Komaneka at Bisma, is a veritable gallery unto itself. These days one can have one’s karma cleansed, learn kite-making and Balinese dance, or be healed by a djamoe medicine man, often without leaving the premises.

Pansea opened Ubud Hanging Gardens in the Summer of 2005, in a dramatic Ayung River gorge.
