Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali, is renowned for its verdant rice terraces, lush jungles, and extraordinary traditional arts. However, its charm extends beyond the village confines, offering an array of local adventures and day trips. From Ubud villas, embark on a journey to the picturesque Tegalalang Rice Terraces, a scenic 20-minute drive away.
This UNESCO-listed cultural site offers an immersive insight into traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system, known as 'subak'.
Expand your excursion to the sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, home to a thriving population of long-tailed macaques. The site is also a sanctuary for native plants and a spiritual center with three temples, dating back to the 14th century.
No stay in Ubud is complete without a venture to the majestic Mount Batur. This active volcano presents an exhilarating sunrise hike for the adventurous, with panoramic views of the island from its summit. For an immersive cultural experience, visit the traditional village of Penglipuran, one of the cleanest villages in the world, renowned for its well-preserved Balinese culture and lifestyle.
Each of these excursions embodies the spirit of Ubud, extending the cultural and natural wonders that the region offers right to the doorstep of your villa.
