Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa overlooks the serene green of paddy fields, providing a refreshing, balancing experience that evokes a deep sense of peace.
Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa has 46 finely appointed guest rooms and suites, 3 Garden Suites and 2 Plunge Pool Suites spread across the resort’s two‐hectare perimeter. With an extraordinary valley backdrop and stunning picturesque views, each room is designed to provide the ultimate escape from the everyday. Modern amenities and supreme comfort are perfectly paired with Balinese‐inspired décor to create an ideal setting for rest, relaxation and a fulfilling Balinese experience.
Our room had a beautiful view of rice paddies, inspiring us to join the morning walk and explore the surrounding area. It was a fantastic experience as we learnt about the rich culture and customs of Bali. The air was so fresh as we made our way through the rice fields and the surrounding village, watching the villagers go about their daily routines. That is just one of many activities on offer here, including sunrise yoga and a Balinese cooking experience, with each activity sure to enrich your knowledge.
After exploring Ubud, make sure to be back at the hotel to enjoy afternoon tea. Every day from 4pm to 5pm you can enjoy complimentary Indonesian tea with assorted Balinese cakes and pastries at the Banyan Tree Yoga deck, enjoying the view of the flowing river and the sound of birds singing in the tropical gardens.
Feeling tired after the morning walk and exploring Ubud, I retreated to Padma Spa for some pampering. I simply surrendered to the hands of the expert therapist as she massaged away all the tired muscles. It was so relaxing, I felt asleep during the massage, which does not happen often unless the treatment is very good.
The spa is not the only thing that is good here. To indulge in good food, you don’t even have to step out of the hotel. There is a selection of dining venues offering everything from refined Indonesian delicacies to Western comfort foods. Patio Ubud Restaurant & Bar lets you experience serenity and amazing views from the back deck, but also the bustling streets of central Ubud.
For a trip that is not only relaxing but also enriching, you have to experience Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa.
