Located in the heart of Ubud, not even half a mile from the Monkey Forest and Ubud Market
Petani Restaurant serves traditional Indonesian cuisine alongside international fare
A dreamy sanctuary in Ubud, with breakfast, a fruit basket, spa and dining discounts and even more perks
Its Ubud’s multi-faceted appeal that draws intrigued nomads in from the coast. At once the spiritual heartland of the island and a lush-green idyll of rural farmland, Bali’s cultural core offers myriad things to do, as well as a glorious opportunity to do very little, depending on what you’re seeking.
Alaya Resort Ubud’s central location makes either type of escape easy. Just 200 metres from Monkey Forest and surrounded by independent cafes and eateries, you won’t be reliant on taxis to get around. Once you enter this five-star hideaway, though, you’ll be absorbed in Ubud’s more introspective side. With two pools beautifully designed to curve around the landscape, a pavilion for yoga and meditation, a natural-stone poolside area dotted with loungers, plus a superb spa, Alaya is divinely quiet.
Sip a freshly concocted juice at the thatched-roof bar and gaze at the view of productive rice paddies right opposite the resort. Follow the wooden pathways to Manisan - one of two restaurants here – and explore elegant Indonesian cuisine in a relaxed, rustic-luxe setting. Add to this the tastefully styled rooms complete with bespoke stone bathtub, and it comes as no surprise that the resort has garnered several awards and accolades over the years.
