Bali and Ubud

Bali is one of the World's favorite destinations. The island is famous for its charm and its beauty: in the hills, green-gold rice terraces, which fall away from the sky with abandon and graceful young women dance to the ethereal tones of the gamelan; by the sea, long white stretches of sand curve to meet the sea and coconut fronds sway in peaceful breezes.

In the last decade, Bali's natural beauty has been matched by the marvelous hotels that have been built on the island, hotels that are now consistently ranked among the best in the world. They offer a superb complement to Bali's graciousness and provide travelers with stunning staging grounds from which to venture forth into the Balinese world. Travelers to the island will find a huge array of sights, sounds and adventures await them. Ride a bicycle through the rice paddies. Tour a monkey forest. Have a traditional Balinese massage. Go white water rafting. Watch a sunset from a temple. Listen to the cool sounds at Ubud's Jazz Cafe. Visit a Balinese herb garden. Feast on Indonesian delicacies in an award winning restaurant. Shop for Balinese lace. The options are endless. These days it is invigorating and relaxing to be in Bali, a place so much of the centuries-old culture feels new. Bali is a place that will enchant you, a new world in which to discover and rediscover life.

Ubud is Bali's center of culture and the arts. Ubud is home to fascinating galleries filled with paintings, sculptures and antiques. Ubud's furniture, clothing and jewelry stores offer innovative, elegant creations and restaurants in town serve some of the finest food in Southeast Asia

Days in Ubud go fast visiting markets, art galleries, river rafting and enjoying your private pool in the oasis of your villa.
