Ubud is the perfect place to unwind amongst the peaceful tropical scenery or indeed to get active! Cycle through bamboo forests, walk along a ridge, trek up a volcano for sunrise or raft down the river. But if this sounds like too much, the pool at Alila Ubud is amazing. It has the sense of being suspended over the valley so you really are in the heart of the jungle, yet there are comfortable sun loungers at hand and staff to bring you refreshments.

The rooms at Alila Ubud all have sweeping views of the valley from your balcony or terrace and they have windows which open up allowing welcoming breezes to flow through your room. The rooms feel quite Balinese with classical décor and wooden furniture. The villas are more spacious and more private but still have views. However, the Pool Villa is more enclosed so even better for privacy.

Dining here is a real treat with attentive chefs and staggering views. Enjoy a local Balinese dish or a western favorite from their tantalising menu. The ingredients are so fresh and flavorsome, you will be wanting more!

Ubud is full of culture and adventure so there is lots to see and do during your time here. Head into central Ubud which is bursting with arts and crafts, boutique cafes, artists' workshops and galleries. There are also some beautiful buildings and some fun markets. If you want something a bit more off the beaten track, you can drive out to Bangli to a more local village and some temples. There are lots of different treks you could do through rice paddies, tropical vegetation, valleys, waterfalls - all beautiful and you could even cycle if you prefer. A cooking class is also good fun as you can go to the markets first to get your ingredients before heading back to the hotel to cook and then eat. If you're keen to work on your craft skills, why not try your hand at Batik painting or even design and make an original silver piece of jewelry. These are just a few of the things you can do! The concierge service at Alila will be able to advise you on the best things to do during your time there.

Location & Directions

Ubud, Indonesia

Alila Villas Ubud is located about 15-minutes outside the artists’ town of Ubud, a small town and Bali’s cultural hub, overlooking the Tjampuhan Valley and River Oos. The landscape comprises rolling rice paddies, a luscious valley carved out of hillsides backed by the curve of coconut palms.

When to go

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.
