Ubud greets you with a lot of happy vibes.The winding roads are interspersed with rice fields and artistic murals. It gives you a balanced combination of cultural experiences and adventurous activities.The weather is mostly perfect; you might experience rains, but they transform the village into a green heaven.
Upon entering Ubud, it gives a very hill station type of a feeling. I instantly felt comfortable and my body clock immediately switched to vacation mode.Overall, Ubud is a meditation conducive, positive energy emitting kinda place.It is buzzing with happy faces and has something in-store for everyone.From bike rides to the volcano to river rafting through the rain forest, from delicious food to antique shopping, from relaxing spas to fun cooking classes, there is no dearth of indulgences.
I generally expect to find one “best thing ever”when I travel to a new place. Ubud surprised me with 3!
Best Infinity Pool ever :One is spoilt for choice when it comes to resorts in Ubud. We decided to stay at Komneka Rasa Sayang, after seeing some crazy pictures of their infinity pool.Located along the bustling Monkey Forest Road, Komneka is a luxurious abode. The hospitality is impeccable and the breakfast is great. The highlight of the resort is its breathtaking infinity pool.
Tip for couples – Always mention you are on a honeymoon, they will definitely give you a great room and arrange for some goodies!
Best Barbeque ever :There are tons of great places to eat in Ubud, but Naughty Nuri’s Warung is a place that you will dream about on really hungry days. They have the best pork barbeque ribs ever! It is absolutely a must visit when in Ubud!
Pro Tip – Look out for the dhabha type one and not the fancy one which is on the way. Also try the Barbeque Chicken and Nasi Goreng there.This recommendation came from the Hungry Travellers, and I till today thank them for the same.
