Average time to visit

Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.

To start planning your holiday to Chapung Sebali

Description

The Villas, Suites and Residence of Chapung Sebali lie in the lush, tropical hills of Ubud, surrounded by an emerald canopy of palms, forest and rice fields but just a short drive from the centre of this vibrantly creative town.

Dotted throughout a landscape that veers from emerald-green forest to startling blue sky, Chapung Sebali is a countryside escape in the cultural heart of Bali. With a spa and two of Ubud’s most popular restaurants, this is a serene and tranquil spot to unwind within reach of Ubud’s artisan crafts and family-run cafes.

With an architectural design that blends seamlessly into the landscape, the Suites and Villas are light and airy, their floor-to-ceiling windows drawing the eye to the captivating forest-clad hills that lie outside. Natural materials bring the beauty of the scenery into the rooms, with marble, wood, volcanic stone and bamboo used in a harmonious design that creates a sense of wellbeing and serenity. Complimentary wifi, flat screen TVs, air-conditioning and well-stocked minibars bring home-comforts galore while the modern decor draws on traditional crafts to create a welcoming escape. Boasting two of Ubud’s favourite social spots, dining options at Chapung Sebali are varied and delicious. The speakeasy-style Blind Pig is a stylish bar with an opulent feel that serves tapas and cocktails alongside jazz and classical music, while the Jungle Fish restaurant serves Balinese and Mediterranean dishes with breathtaking views over the jungle canopy. While spending your days looking out over the jungle and listening to the tranquil calls of the canopy may prove sufficiently relaxing, Chapung Sebali’s spa is an oasis of tranquillity, high in the hills. Therapies including Shiatsu, Balinese and Swedish massage come together with yoga and a well-equipped fitness centre to create a sanctuary of holistic wellness. While the hillside location and superb facilities of Chapung Sebali create a retreat you need never leave, the town of Ubud and surrounding countryside boast fascinating and varied sights to explore. From the artisan workshops of wood carvers, silversmiths, painters and more, to dance performances and the Agung Rai Museum of Art, Ubud is a creative heartland like no other. The more active can explore the lush countryside by bike, horseback or hiking through rice fields and tiny villages.

Accommodation

From the 60sq.m Deluxe Suites with their balcony to the 300sq.m One-bedroom Villa with its private pool and the 600sq.m Residence with its double pool, the accommodation of Chapung Sebali is spacious, light and blurs the boundary between interior and exterior. The spectacular views over the Wos River Valley through the floor-to-ceiling windows are instantly calming, a feeling enhanced by the minimalist, earthy decor of the interiors and the simple Scandinavian-inspired design.

Facilities

With hanging beds, sofas, sunbeds and tables, Jungle Fish is a laidback, trendy spot to enjoy Asian and Mediterranean dishes with mesmerising views over the tropical landscape. One of the more popular dining spots in Ubud, the food is delicious, locally sourced and organic, and only rivalled by the extraordinary views over the jungle foliage, while a swim-up pool bar creates the sense of a private members club. Cosier and with a romantic vibe, the Blind Pig is a more sumptuous concoction of velvet seating, elegant cocktails, candlelight and live music.

Activities

Lying at the heart of Bali, Ubud is both a destination in itself and a base from which to explore many of the country’s geological wonders and spellbinding landscapes. Wander through the vibrant markets of the town, led by the heady aroma of exotic spices and the piles of curious fruits and vegetables then duck into a cute family-run warung for a plate of steaming nasi goreng. Head out on a bike or hike through the verdant countryside to see traditional life in rural Bali, or soak in the views as you wander into Ubud along the Campuhan Ridge.
