As well as the forest nearby, you’ll be a mere ten-minute walk from the ornate Ubud Palace, the official residence of the royal family of Ubud, and there are markets, shops and restaurants on the doorstep. For a heart-pumping adventure further afield, explore the surrounding mountains, forests, rice fields and waterfalls by cycling, trekking, or whitewater rafting on the Ayung River. Back at the hotel, enjoy delicious cuisine at the open-air restaurant and relax in the infinity pool.
