A honeymoon in Ubud will certainly thrill the hearts of any couple in love. The town of Ubud, located in the uplands of Bali, is known as Bali’s cultural heartland. Bordered by the cooler mountains further up north and located about an hour and a half drive from the international airport of Bali and the luxury resorts of southern Bali, Ubud is home to a plethora of fantastic restaurants, offering endless options that range from traditional local foods to healthy organic cafes serving fresh juices, salads, soups, and raw chocolate.
Couples on their honeymoon in Ubud can enjoy absorbing the spiritual and cultural atmosphere here and go strolling around hand in hand along the lively streets lined with shops and local artisans offering traditional arts and crafts.
The town is also home to one of Bali’s royal families and it has a flourishing crafts centre, leaving you feeling utterly inspired at every corner (brides will love finding ideas for their home!). Ubud zoomed to fame after the movie Eat, Pray, Love, starring the American superstar Julia Roberts, and the town has become quite busy with frequent visits from tourists wanting to see the sets. Traffic can get heavy in the centre but if you take your time and stroll around on foot, you can avoid the not so pleasant experience of being stuck in traffic. Even if you do find yourself travelling by car at a snail's pace along the streets, you can snuggle up together and enjoy some window shopping from the comfort of your transport!
With a personalized Ubud honeymoon package, you will get the best of your stay in this beautiful cultural town, making your romantic getaway in Bali more than just perfect!
Around Ubud, you will find some of Bali’s most iconic landscapes ruled by lush rainforest and terraced rice fields, dotted with Hindu Temples and shrines. Ancient holy sites in the surroundings of Ubud include the beautiful water temple complex Tirta Empul, the intricately carved Goa Gaja, better known as the Elephant Cave, and the king’s graves of Gunung Kawi with its rock cut shrines.
Furthermore, there are authentic local villages to visit like Campuhan, Penestanan, Peliatan and Batuan found around the town of Ubud. Little craftsmen towns specialized in art and woodcarving, which are sold all over the island. There are many shops selling antiques, woodcarvings, crafts, textiles and jewellery as well as fantastic paintings. No wonder Ubud is known as ‘the cultural heart of the island’.
A stay right in the heart of Ubud town or hidden away somewhere in the gorgeous unspoiled natural surroundings of this cultural town is must for all Bali travellers and especially honeymooners. Waking up to the view of a deep river valley embedded in the raw unspoiled tropical jungle of Bali surely is part of every couple's dream, especially you can get out of bed and dive straight into a sparkling private infinity pool, even before breakfast is served. It is truly idyllic and a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
