Ubud is one of the last remaining lush green areas of Bali which puts us in a prime position to develop a premium eco-friendly resort for the discerning luxury traveler. With breathtaking views of the island’s uplands right on the doorstep, from terraced rice fields, Hindu temples and cultural immersions at every turn, we look forward to welcoming our guests to the new Anantara Ubud in 2022.
Beyond the resort, guests will find breathtaking beauty of the island’s top attractions right on their doorstep such as the Hanging Gardens, the famed rice terraces, the Puri Saren Royal Palace and Bali’s famous Seminyak Beach just a day trip away.
Ubud is well-known as the centre of Balinese culture and home to many of the region’s artisans. Its rainforest and terraced rice fields, dotted with Hindu temples, are amongst Bali’s most iconic and spectacular sceneries.
