Considered Bali’s cultural heart, Ubud is renowned for its spiritual, traditional and creative culture, with artisanal crafts and markets, quaint villages, ancient holy sites and Hindu temples dotted across its emerald green landscape.
Situated in the mountainous hinterland, Ubud’s backdrop of lush rainforests and terraced rice paddies along with its slower-paced way of village life, provides a peaceful retreat for reflection and relaxation, just over an hour’s drive from bustling Seminyak.
Located on the banks of Campuhan River in an area owned by the Royal Family of Bali, Warwick Ibah Luxury Villas & Spa promises an experience fit for a royal. Nestled amongst the garden’s frangipani trees and coconut palms, the resort’s 17 villas and suites reflect a traditional Balinese style of thatched roofs and carved stone walls with colonial style interiors.
With sweeping views across the valley, the generously appointed living areas feature elegant decor with wooden daybeds, Javanese art, generous bathrooms, private dining areas, spacious terraces, private pools and open-air showers, as well as all the mod-cons including individual air-conditioning, satellite TV and sound system.
Surrounded by stunning water features with colourful fish, the Garden Restaurant serves traditional Balinese and Indonesian cuisine alongside an international menu, perfectly complemented by a carefully selected wine list featuring quality drops from around the world.
Conveniently located to some of Ubud’s most famous attractions, the resort provides an excellent base from which to explore the town centre and Ubud Palace, just five minutes by foot, and Monkey Forest, just
20 minutes by foot, or 10 minutes on the complimentary guest shuttle.
After a day of exploring, relax with a dip in the pool, read a book in the library lounge, or indulge in a massage in the full-service spa which fuses traditional therapies with organic ingredients for the ultimate pickup. •
