Vibe: Tranquil riverfront hotel above the Ayung River Valley
Perched high atop the Ayung River Valley in Bali’s central foothills, Alila Ubud fits into its lush environs, laid out in a similar fashion as a Balinese hillside village. At the open-air Plantation Restaurant, tuck into Balinese cuisine as well as farm-to-table Western fare. Chefs craft the entrees using local, seasonal ingredients, some of which are harvested in the on-site garden. Go for a swim in the chic hotel pool, surrounded by the lush Balinese jungle that makes up the Ayung River Valley (and even catch a glimpse of Ubud wildlife). Each afternoon, enjoy tea and refreshments at the Plantation Terrace overlooking the pool. Alila Ubud is just 15 minutes from Ubud, Bali’s cultural capital. During your stay, the hotel can arrange exciting excursions through the surrounding countryside, including an expedition to the mountain village of Kintamani and a visit to the natural springs at Tampaksiring.
