Uma Ubud, part of the award-winning, luxury hotel group COMO, is high on our hit list of 2015. This stylish resort is located on the outskirts of Ubud, just a 10 minute walk to the town centre, and is set amongst the lush tropical jungle offering views across the stunning steep Tjampuhan valley. This contemporary haven reflects COMO’s philosophy of ‘quiet comfort in culturally rich locations’ as seen in the 46 rooms, suites and villas.
The bright, chic and comfortable rooms exudes the charm of a traditional Balinese village. Each room is unique with differing views, bathrooms and pool options all you need to do is pick your one! Our favourite at Turquoise is the new Pool Villas which feature a private plunge pool a sprawling sundeck and spectacular views across the valley. Which room you choose will allow you to immerse yourself into the culture of Bali, from the comfort of your sun lounger.
At Uma Ubud, the spa experience is a touch of paradise, with the signature COMO Shambhala Retreat offering a range of relaxing and invigorating Asian-inspired treatments, along with yoga. For guests staying there are complimentary activities available daily including a guided morning walk, use of the steam room sauna and gym, as well as getting out and about, trekking in the lush green paddy fields even white water rafting!
After a long day at the spa, there’s a choice of two restaurants at Uma Ubud, or hotel staff can arrange shuttle into Ubud to try out the local Balinese cuisine. Kemiri, meaning candlenut in Bahasa Indonesia, boasts world class cuisine showcasing Bali’s rich gourmet heritage with a modern contemporary twist. Kemiri is an open plan, indoor-outdoor space serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Alternatively, Uma Cucina is a convivial Italian inspired restaurant which prides itself on fresh and locally sourced flavours of Italy, perfect for a special occasion.
