Kamandalu Resort and Spa
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. To sweeten the pot, the intimate property offers 54 individually designed villas that range from one-bedroom spaces with garden views to two-bedroom villas and private pools. At the main pool, guests can swim up to the bar and enjoy canapés and cocktails. Or, head to the spa for a treatment based on Balinese rituals using local spa products made daily. Located right outside of Ubud, a village known as an artisans’ haven in Bali, Kamandalu makes a great jumping-off point for shopping, culture, and food tours, as well as outdoor adventure opportunities including whitewater rafting, kayaking, or surfing. The resort offers complimentary transportation throughout the day to central Ubud, and guests can sign up for guided trips throughout the rest of the island.
