exclusive and exotic. That is the characteristic of Ubud - the well known artists' colony in the
world. Many people (most students, researchers, and scientists besides common people) from
all over the world come to Ubud to explore its interesting features. Thus, hotels in
Ubud are various in rate and class.
Famous for its painter's community, Ubud is special in more ways than one. Ubud has its own
magic, and its particularly beautiful surroundings and gracious way of life have drawn
celebrities and artists from all over the world in recent decades; some have even adopted
Ubud as their own home. The magic is easy to find - just take a walk south of the village
through its terraced paddy fields to the monkey forest. Fresh water spouts out of the sheer
rock at the base of the ravine, and a bath in a secluded shady spot is purifying.
While it's possible to visit Ubud in just a day, such a short trip would barely touch the
surface of Ubud extraordinary village. An interesting rural Balinese life and modern services
co-exist here in Ubud. Only 60 minutes from Ngurah Rai airport, Ubud is close to many of
central Bali's major sights. Despite the fact that visitors may outnumber residents during
peak periods, Ubud retains the atmosphere of a small country community and, in contrast to
the hassle of Kuta, the pace of life is very relaxed.
It's a great place to tour on foot or
by bicycle and there's a wide range of facilities for tourists of all budgets, as well as
beaches 10 km away. For those who enjoy being close to natural beauty, yet within easy reach
of creature comforts, Ubud is ideal.
