    Ubud Hotels with the Most Amazing Views

    These hotels in and around Ubud offer stunning views, with elegant manmade structures of chalets and villas, pools, water features, amazing onsite dining venues and spas that are set against natural backdrops of lush river valleys and green forests. There is a huge variety of hotels in Ubud that make good use of the natural topography of this scenic heartland; however we’ve chosen only a handful that offers you the best vistas.

    Some of these Ubud hotels cover a whole valley side, offering great vantage points and wide panoramas from their lobbies and restaurants, and some have exotic spas near the river at the base for memorable massage you’ve never experienced before. Sunsets can also be as exceptional as down on Bali’s favourite coasts, with undulating rice paddies and mountain silhouettes in place of rolling surf. This shortlist of the best hotels in Ubud with stunning views will help you decide.

    One of Ubud’s pioneering resorts; the legendary Royal Pitamaha retains much of its classical Balinese design and is harmoniously set against a breath-taking green oasis. Part in its collection of private pool villas are built onto a small parcel of landscape beside the Ayung River, complete with coconut groves, a manmade tributary that feeds into a mini rice field, and interconnecting paved pathways. The views from all over the resort are romantic, especially from the restaurant set by the main poolside. Read More...


    This luxurious resort is set within the tranquil highland village of Kedewatan, several minutes’ drive from the Ubud hub.

    You enter this famous five-star Ubud resort via a suspended bridge over bamboo forests, before reaching a gravity-defying lotus pond that provides panoramic views over the Ayung River valley. The property is sculpted into the valley side; the lobby and Terrace Café provide closer views of the surrounding forests, and down beside the rushing Ayung River are the resort’s own rice field and the Riverside Café. Its new unique all-bamboo yoga pavilion is also to behold, adjacent to green paddies. Read More...


    Up in the rice paddy covered slopes of Tegallalang village, 10 minutes’ drive up from Ubud town is Alam Ubud, which offers great vistas over the Petanu River gorge. Tegallalang itself is specifically known best for its scenic rice terraces. A stay here also means that you are in one of Bali’s most artistic neighbourhoods. Spa facilities at the riverside, infinity pools above the valley and intimate dining in cabanas or a timber platform overlooking the valley make for a heartening stay. Read More...


    As a holistic retreat, Bali’s COMO Shambhala Estate features immersive settings of beautiful leafy gardens within a natural mountain valley environment.

Impressive landscaping and undulating contours of the property, forested pathways and its setting above the flowing Campuhan River all work to create magic. There’s even a natural spring onsite that is sourced for use in treatments. Read More...
