Newly renovated and opened in March 2016, Ubud Village Hotel brings a bit of boutique luxury in a contemporary Balinese style to the middle of Jalan Monkey Forest.

This large multi-storey 58-room hotel could have been a blot on the landscape, but is successfully hidden behind their low-rise street level entrance. Several classes of well-appointed rooms are offered, all with a sophisticated style using dark woods, stone and marble floors, adorned with Indonesian traditional textiles and beautiful original artworks.

The well-known local family who own this hotel also own the highly regarded Neka Museum, and the attention to detail here is evidence of their true love of art and local culture. The style is soothing and serene, a great escape from the busy street outside. Most rooms, however, face an internal atrium draped with flowering creepers and overlooking one of the two swimming pools, and we find the lack of external outlook a bit claustrophobic. A handful of rooms do look over the outside pool with views of Ubud, but for a premium price.

Regardless, all rooms are terrific, and we particularly like the ones with a small sitting area in an “internal glassed-in verandah”. Bathrooms offer deep tubs, rain showers and quality toiletries, as you would expect in this class of hotel.

The main swimming pool is large and inviting, stylishly simple and surrounded with plenty of comfortable padded sun-loungers. One of the four restaurants is poolside and where your included breakfast is served. The other swimming pool looks more like a water feature — the cool dark waters cascade into two levels in the interior atrium. The water temperature is several degrees cooler than the outside pool. A semi-covered rooftop bar and cafe offers a free afternoon tea with splendid views over Ubud. The rooftop water feature looks like an infinity swimming pool, but unfortunately is only a few inches deep and filled with fish.

Ubud Village Hotel has two street-level restaurants, Malaku serving contemporary fusion cuisine, and a Mexican restaurant that was yet to be opened when we visited. A spa and gym facilities complete the package.

The staff are some of the friendliest we’ve encountered, polite and helpful—true Balinese hospitality. We were surprised when they quoted the price: although it’s in the top-range bracket, we were expecting it to be a lot higher, and we think it’s excellent value (if you don’t mind the lack of external outlook — our only quibble).

In a similar class (with comparable walk-in rates), Barong Resort offers sophisticated very private rooms in a traditional garden setting and is another excellent choice, or for a bit more of a splurge, the best honeymoon option in downtown Ubud are the fabulous private villas at Komaneka.
