More on Ubud

We have 39 places to stay in and around Ubud.

Introduction

Ubud offers literally thousands of accommodation options, and they are growing—increasingly vertically. When a hotel says it’s in “Ubud”, this can mean almost anywhere within a 10 kilometre radius, give or take. “Close to Ubud” may see you stuck in traffic for hours. A good landmark to consider when deciding where to stay is Ubud Palace, opposite Ubud market, the traditional centre of the small town.

We have divided up the surrounding areas into the more popular clusters of choices. All you have to do is decide if you’d like a traditional homestay, stylish luxury, a comfortable air-con box, a pool or views—or a combination of all. More international chain hotels are making inroads to the area and changing the face of what was once a tiny village. We urge you to support smaller homestays and family-run hotels. You’ll get better and more personal service, as well as minimise the drain on already stretched resources. Note that rates are often negotiable, particularly in low season or for a longer stay.

Central Ubud

Staying in Central Ubud gives you the advantage of being able to walk to restaurants, shops, spas, dance performances, galleries, yoga venues and the Monkey Forest, palace and market without having to deal with the traffic. A labyrinth of small lanes off the main roads lead to often leafy and quiet homestays and hotels, mostly within the flashpacker range. As prices rise, the backpacker lodgings are increasingly dorm beds in hostels, however if you are travelling with a friend, it’s often more economical to stay in a homestay.

The loop bordered by Jalan Raya Ubud, Jalan Hanoman and Jalan Monkey Forest and all the streets and lanes within that area are what we have deemed “central Ubud”. The most popular pockets are the lanes off the northern end of Jalan Monkey Forest and Jalan Dewi Sita, around the market, however these can be noisy and sometimes overpriced. The best value accommodation can be found in the Padang Tegal area, in the lanes off the southern end of Jalan Hanoman. Mid and top range hotels tend to be concentrated on along Jalan Monkey Forest, but fancier resorts are more abundant out of the town centre.

Jalan Bisma

Increasing construction in recent years has turned Jalan Bisma from what was once a short, dead-end track to a now almost an entirely paved street. Commencing on Raya Ubud, Bisma juts south before veering left through a small valley and meeting the southern stretch of Monkey Forest Road. While not fully drivable by car, motorbikes can zip up and down. There’s still enough paddy and forest to get the fancy hotels (and their guests) excited and with the Tapes River to the east and Wos to the west, Bisma feels delightfully removed from the hubbub of downtown.

North Ubud

Leading off Jalan Raya Ubud and heading north, the streets gradually become more rural and village-like. We have concentrated our coverage over the area still a comfortable walking distance from town. Many options in this area tend to be family-run homestays crowded in to the family compound. Rates are often similar, but value can be vastly variable.
