Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
At a Glance
Set in lush green forests you will stay in one of the beautifully Bill Bensley designed tents. These tents capture the adventourous spirit of Ubud
The restaurants here celebrate Asian cusine whether that be at Mads Lange which focuses on sustainable farmed ingediants, or Api Jiwa which sizzles up mouth watering Asia BBQ food.
Auriga is a haven for those in need of some serious pampering. Surrounded by the rainforest there are a range of traditional Baliness treatments. Our chosen must do would be the crystal and organic facial.
Make sure you spend some time in the 30 metre long outdoor rainforest pool and get lost amongst the trees.
Families should opt for the two bedroom lodge which offers unobstructed views across the Keliki Valley.

Average time to visit
Bali’s climate is warm and humid, temperatures averaging between 21°C and 31°C. Short bursts of rain occur from November until April, making the velvet green landscape come alive. April to October is the dry season, although in hilly Ubud, you rarely feel too hot.
Festival periods can get busier. In Ubud, however, you never feel the crowds. This is the advantage Ubud has over the south coast area that can get packed to bursting around August, Christmas and New Year.

If you're looking for an experience unlike any other you will find in Bali, or maybe even the world, Capella is your place! Tucked into the jungle, you truly feel like you stepped onto a luxurious campsite, and every part of your experience will play into that. When you arrive, you receive a walking stick and your "camping essentials" kit complete with sunscreen, bugspray, and bandages (just in case of course). There was not a detail that went unnoticed with the design of this resort. From the small suspension bridge you cross to get to your villa, to the vintage "luggage" in your room that opens up to reveal your mini bar, to the kerosene lanterns you will find sprinkled throughout the resort, to the walls designed to look like a camping tent, to the toilet that you do not notice is a toilet at first (or second) glance - I could go on and on. But each of these elements blends together to transport you to a world of 18th century luxury camping. Perfect for the curious minds, and able bodied, Capells Ubud is not a resort to miss!
