Long before Eat, Pray and Love made Ubud famous, honeymooners were drawn to its magical atmosphere ...
One of the most popular locations in Bali for couples honeymooning or indulging in special time together is Ubud, where luxurious resorts and bespoke getaways allow couples to enjoy the best that the island has to offer, and if you are the kind of couple who likes to take things at a slower pace or enjoys the cultural aspect of a destination, chances are you'll love the 'old Bali' feel to Ubud.
Bali enchants its visitors with verdant forests, vast green rice-fields, and a spiritual energy, and nowhere on the island quite captures this magical energy like Ubud does. This magical, spiritual place has somehow managed to open itself up to tourism (well and truly in some parts), yet still hold tight to its ancient culture and rituals.
How to spend your time relaxing in Ubud, Bali
Hoteliers know when they are onto a good thing and obviously spotted Ubud's appeal to couples looking for an Asian honeymoon location. As such, there are some absolutely incredible resorts and villas there. Some even cater to couples only - perfect if you are looking for as much privacy as possible and pure indulgence. For the ultimate in romantic Bali getaways you really can't go past a glamorous resort stay, and if you are honeymooning it is the ultimate opportunity to splurge and make sure it is a trip you'll both never forget. Luckily, Ubud is blessed with a wide array of luxurious and utterly romantic accommodation options, adorned with all the mod-cons and surroundings that will simply take your breath away.
If seclusion is top of your list, why not book a stay in your private villa nestled amongst lush rainforest? The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Furama Xclusive Villas and Spa and the Samaya Ubud all offer the perfect intimate environment and special services that will make your stay unforgettable.
Maya Ubud is one of the most spectacularly located resorts in Ubud, secluded yet within easy reach of town. The magical ambience is completed by the luxurious spa overlooking a running stream.
Meanwhile, the beautiful Kayumanis Ubud does not cater for children under the age of 16, due in part to its dramatic location. With only 23 themed luxury villas, this resort is seemingly designed for die-hard romantics. Dreaming of a candlelit dinner under the stars? Fancy a relaxing couple's massage? Find all this and more when you enjoy resort living in Ubud.
On the other hand, however, if you decide to embark on more active pursuits, a luxury resort at Ubud is also the perfect place to base yourself!
