Serene spa retreat, surrounded by rice fields, close to Ubud's buzzy bars and restaurants
Close enough to Ubud's buzzy bars and restaurants but surrounded by lush rice fields, Plataran Ubud Hotel and Resort is a best-of-both-worlds Balinese retreat. The intimate resort has just 46 rooms, all of them fresh and light with a contemporary minimalist look that incorporates sleek wood panels, local artwork or photography and floor-to-ceiling windows. Bathroom products come in cute ceramic pots. Dine on traditional Balinese cuisine with a contemporary twist or international dishes in the resort’s restaurant (or out on the wooden deck) while you gaze out to the grounds, studded with tropical palms. Two pools — one is on an upper level overlooking the surrounding rice fields — invite you to cool off, or switch off completely with an authentic Balinese massage at the spa.
In the Area
Ubud is Bali’s cultural hub, known for its royal palace, talented artisans and fertile river valleys lined with rice paddies. When you’re not lazing about by the pool, spend an afternoon admiring Ubud’s many crafts shops and galleries, book a daytrip to go whitewater rafting down the Ayung River or recharge at one of the town's many yoga studios. Don't miss a visit to the Ubud Palace, especially when it's serving as the backdrop for a traditional dance performance.
