Settled in the foothills of the volcanic mountains of northern Bali, Ubud provides a wonderful contrast to the lively and modern south coast of Bali. Surrounded by paddy fields and dramatic valleys, the old town is often considered to be the ‘cultural hub’ of the island. Particularly famous for its markets, temples, great selection of restaurants and its traditional Balinese architecture, Ubud town is a great place for private exploration. Particularly good for families and young couples wanting to be in the heart of the action, there is a good range of accommodation within the town, including Komaneka Monkey Forest, Kajane Mua and Waka Di Ume.
As soon as you leave the town you are surrounded by a stunning combination of lush and fertile paddy fields and steep sided river valleys. This provides a great setting in which to sit back and unwind, go for a gentle stroll or travelling further afield to explore local villages and their way of life. For the more active there is the chance to go white water rafting on the Ayung River. There is an extensive range of accommodation here, particularly in terms of upmarket hotels, and all provide easy access to the town. Luxury pool villas like Kayumanis Ubud and Uma Ubud are perfect for honeymoons and romantic getaways; while The Chedi Club provides luxury and style in a truly authentic Balinese setting.
