The Elegant Resorts & Villas Collection
Understated cool on the fringe of an urbanised village
One of Ubud’s most notable urban retreats is a place that capitalizes on pretty and restorative surroundings, plenty of natural light and interiors that blend contemporary simplicity with traditional Balinese materials. COMO”s Uma Ubud radiates with calm and peace even though it is located only a hundred metres back from a busy road that leads into the town. The restaurant, spa centre and principal yoga bale sit below the inviting, central pool, down through the sculptured garden terraces and they all take excellent advantage of gorge and field views.
With its uncluttered lines and furnishings this boutique villa hotel is much more than just good looking: the beds are luxurious, the yoga classes are professionally run, the spiritual Shambala spa offers sublime therapies and the restaurant whips up meals to swoon over. There is a stand out menu of raw and cooked fusion dishes that are as appealing to the eye as they are to the palate.
The more extravagant villa suites come with private infinity pools and stunning views of the Tjamphuan Valley. The sounds from the forest and the Oos River below are the early morning wake up call.
Perhaps the greatest delight of the location is that it affords the opportunity for exploration because along with natural beauty, Ubud has a vibrant arts and restaurant scene and galaxy of enticing shops. Uma also offers hiking, rafting and even volcano climbing and, by contrast, early morning activities can include a gentle hour’s rice field walk with a guide or an equally strenuous but satisfying yoga class.
All this comes at reasonable rates and with fine service thrown in courtesy of genuinely delightful Balinese staff. A perfect choice for guests who want town and country, peace and pampering. Uma by COMO is an entrée into the practices and philosophy of luxury that comfortably work hand-in-hand with well-being.
