Romantic escapes in the heart of Ubud.
the Low Down
COMO Uma Ubud is a luxury resort in the heart of Ubud. The contemporary Asian design of their 46 rooms, suites and villas are relaxed, sunshine-filled spaces. The restaurants, Kemiri and Uma Cucina, boast world-class cuisine while the Retreat at Uma Ubud focuses on holistic wellness, with active pursuits including temple visits, biking and trekking. Overlooking the Tjampuhan Valley and River Oos, the luxury hotel nestles amid rice paddies carved out of hillsides, backed by coconut palms and banyan trees. The open, clean and simple heart of the Ubud luxury resort comprises the lobby, 25m pool and bar. This contrasts beautifully with the narrow paths leading to the rooms and suites, which run between tall, lushly-planted walls. Interiors, which were designed by Japanese interior designer Koichiro Ikebuchi, feel like those of a rural hillside home. In each of the 46 light-filled rooms, suites and villas, a private tropical garden separates the bathroom from the principal living space.

- Signature Activities:
Rafting on the Ayung river: Float down the Ayung River, through Bali’s stunning natural flora, keeping an eye out for the local wildlife. The rapids provide an exhilarating thrill whilst experienced river guides ensure rafters’ complete safety at all times. The route also passes by COMO Uma Ubud’s sister property: COMO Shambhala Estate.
Canyon tubing and ATV: Ride a tube down the 6km ‘lazy river’, through a lush green canyon. Look out for local flora and fauna surrounding the crystal-clear water. You can also take a ride on a ‘flying fox’ zip line through the treetops – a chance to marvel at the size and scale of Bali’s immense forestry. After you’ve dried off, ride a quad through untamed jungles, villages and plantations, taking in Bali’s less travelled side.
Purification ceremony at Sebatu Holy Spring: With the help of your guide, experience the Balinese-Hindu ritual of ‘Melukat’, or ritual purification, at Sebatu holy spring – located near two ancient temples: Dalem Pingit and Kusti. Hindus see the ritual as a literal cleansing of the body and a symbolic cleansing of the soul, aimed at preventing misfortune and sicknesses. Sebatu, located 25 minutes north of Ubud, is one known as one of the most ancient and holy places in Bali for spiritual purification.

Temperatures average a very pleasant 80°F (27°C) in the Ubud area and a little lower at around 71°F (22°C) in the central volcanic region around Kintamani. The best time to visit (the high season) is May through to September. The humidity is much lower at this time, although there is still the chance of rain. However, it is much more likely to be an hour-long downpour, rather than all-day drizzle.
