A culturally rich and world-renowned destination, Bali is often referred to as the “Island of the Gods.” Within this paradise—situated on the side of a valley in Lodtunduh, overlooking a tranquil river—sits The Westin Ubud Resort & Spa. Though it is a secluded mountain sanctuary, the resort is just 12 kilometres southwest of the centre of Ubud and an hour's drive from Denpasar International Airport (DPS).
For an uplifting adventure, visit the island’s most important community centers, its Balinese temples. Also popular are Bali’s two active volcanoes: Agung and Batur. Power up with fun-filled outdoor activities, including golf and surfing. Or experience the island’s diverse habitats with a trek through the jungle and rice paddies. A mountain bike ride offers a different glimpse of the stunning terrain. If you prefer to quietly energize, the area’s many idyllic spas offer a range of rejuvenating services, from massages to scrubs to facials. Food lovers can learn the native ways with a cooking class.
Bali’s beautiful handcrafts and designer items, including art, furniture, jewelry, textiles, pottery, and more allow you to take a memorable piece of the island home with you. Delicious coffee and vanilla or handmade soaps, bath salts, incense, and aromatic oils are additional options. Or visit nearby Ubud’s galleries, which sell work by local artists. A collection of villages, Ubud was originally an important source for medicinal herbs and plants. In the early 20th century, it became a haven for painters and artists. Today it is Bali’s preeminent centre for arts and crafts. Additionally, the Seminyak-Legian area is home to countless boutiques and charming restaurants.
