Experience Authentic Bali at The Westin Resort & Spa, Ubud

Westin Ubud Aerial with poo

For couples looking for more than just a hotel room, this Ubud wellness retreat invites you to experience the healing energy of Bali while staying close to the region’s cultural treasures. The Westin Resort & Spa Ubud is located in Bali’s spiritual heartland, surrounded by the magical landscapes that draw Australian couples here as part of their trip to Bali. Cultural discovery and nourishing rituals combined with a premium resort stay in a lush location create a serene escape from the daily grind.

Here are three ways to connect more deeply with Balinese culture and the region’s lush natural beauty at The Westin Resort & Spa, Ubud.

1. Explore the best of Ubud
You’ll be less than 45 minutes from some of the area’s most beloved attractions — including the Ubud Art Market, Sacred Ubud Monkey Forest, Ubud Royal Palace, and the famous Tegalalang Rice Terrace plus a selection of restaurants, shops and cafes. Take the resort’s daily shuttle bus to the centre of town, book a tour, or hire a car and driver to explore at your own pace. 

Not sure where to start? The resort team is always happy to offer their own tips on the best things to see and do in and around Ubud, such as cycling through rice paddies or a private class or massage at the nearby Yoga Barn. You can’t beat that local knowledge.

2. Enjoy a spiritual journey (without leaving the resort)
You don’t have to leave the comfort of the resort to connect with Bali’s healing energy. While a little pampering is part of any trip to Bali, The Westin Ubud’s signature Spiritual Healing Journey goes one step further to explore the country’s spiritual side. And it starts with a change into traditional Balinese dress to really set the mood.

The journey includes meditation, palm healing or Metenung, and Balinese purification rituals to help rebalance your chakras and release any negative residual energies that may be causing stress in your life now. Combined with a dreamy 60-minute massage at the Heavenly Spa Ubud, and a restful night’s sleep on the Westin’s Heavenly® Bed, your body and mind will be feeling relaxed and restored. A must to enjoy with your partner (see more in the resort’s Ubud Retreat Escape package below).

3. Soak up the ambience
The Westin Resort & Spa Ubud has been designed for maximum connection with the magical surrounds. Little wonder couples from Australia and around the world choose to marry or honeymoon here. Restaurants and bars spill onto expansive decks overlooking the Ubud forest and infinity pool. Rooms, suites and villas invite light and breeze through opening windows and floor-to-ceiling glass, with even entry-level rooms offering a private balcony and captivating green vistas. The one-bedroom villas (perfect for couples) are tucked away in the jungle with a private pool and outdoor cabana to enjoy the river views and frangipani-scented air. 

Whether you’re relaxing poolside, enjoying cocktail hour, or strolling back to your room, the resort feels deeply immersed in the landscape — and so will you.
