Spa-centric villa hideaway in the mountainous jungles of Bali with an organic farm, spring-fed pool and yoga classes
Tucked amid the lush Ubud Mountains, yogis, spa-lovers and couples check in and chill out with detoxes, ayurvedic dosha work and eco- and active-adventures at Bagus Jati. The 18 romantic thatched roof villas have pillowy beds draped in billowing fabrics, Balinese antiques, and verandas with views of the lush emerald jungle. Upgrade to Deluxe Spa Villas—circular for chakra purposes—to score massage tables and jacuzzi tubs in en-suite treatment rooms. The hotel’s organic farm provides fresh produce to the restaurant, where guests can choose full- or half-board packages (set meals $28 lunch, $42 dinner); breakfast is included.
In the Area
If spa time has you stir-crazy, the surrounding mountains provide for plenty of light adventure, from dips in the holy springs at Tirta Empul to archeology at Gunung Kawi Sebatu and cycling journeys past rice paddies and villages with sandstone-sculpting artisans. Early risers can make the atmospheric pre-dawn trek up the slopes of Mount Batur, an active volcano famous for its sunrise, and if the mists cooperate, sublime views. Closer to the resort, guided treks (2-3 hours) explore the orchid- and bird-filled jungle; you may even spy a monkey. If not, there's always the Ubud Monkey Forest.
