The views from all over the resort are romantic, especially from the restaurant set by the main poolside. Read More...

This luxurious 5-star resort is one of Ubud’s hidden gems - ‘Hidden’ because it’s right outside Ubud’s usual borders, tucked away in the forested northern part of the Ayung River valley in the neighbouring village of Payangan. While the resort’s pool villas allow you to soak privately and enjoy the lush valley views, the main highlight of your stay here is the double-tiered resort pool, frequently mentioned as one of the world’s best pools. The mention of Ubud normally conjures images of vast rice fields, but you won’t find any of that at this resort - it’s pleasantly in the middle of nowhere. Read More...

The name of this resort gives its high-perched setting away. The duplex villas at the Kupu Kupu Barong are gorgeously built using timber and thatched roofing, mimicking traditional Balinese rice barns, but are fitted with elegant four-poster beds and modern amenities. Looking out from the villa windows or balconies, you have the sweeping Ayung River Valley in view. Another aptly named feature at the resort is La View Restaurant, with its romantic ‘floating’ setting just for two, surrounded by frangipani petals and with the natural backdrop of Ubud’s woodland greenery. The Mango Tree Spa by French spa brand L’Occitane lets you unwind with unrestricted views over Ayung River. Read More...
