Journey up north a little further and you’ll reach Ubud. It’s calmer, quieter and far greener than Bali’s southern towns. Ubud is home to a spectacular range of getaways. Hotels here come swathed with rice field views and overhanging canopies of plants. They’re usually larger and more spacious, with more of an emphasis on relaxation, spa days and yoga than in other parts of Bali.

Search for “The best hotels in Ubud” and we guarantee you’ll see The Kayon Jungle Resort pop up at least once or twice. As the name suggests, this luxury hotel sits deep in the jungle. It’s got a magical infinity pool with a backdrop of nothing but greenery and bath tubs just crying out to be filled with flowers. It’s handy if you’re looking to snap a few photos for your social media, too.

Everything about Kamandalu in Ubud is chilled out. From the enveloping white curtains draped over the beds to the huge swimming pools with leaves lazily brushing the edges. The outdoor bathrooms come complete with huge bathtubs, ready for a cosy evening in your room after a busy day of exploring Ubud. There’s also a famous spa with some very impressive treatments, if you’re on the hunt for top level relaxation.

Amandari was influenced by traditional Balinese villages and sits overlooking the Ayung River Gorge. You’ll fall asleep here listening to the sounds of the river running below. This tranquil resort has an open-air restaurant, a spa and an infinity pool, covering all bases for a relaxing break in the heart of Bali. Rooms come inspired by Balinese artists with a hefty dose of luxury in every corner.

The Udaya Resort is brilliant for anyone looking for a fancy hotel in Ubud without wanting to splash out quite as much as other famed hotels in the area. Slightly cheaper than its five star counterparts, Udaya Resort and Spa is still home to everything you need to transport you into a world of Indonesian charm. Expect an organic restaurant and free yoga as well as multiple swimming pools to cool off in afterwards.
