The elegance of Balinese architecture and hospitality flourish
at Hotel Tjampuhan, located just west of Ubud. Here, Prince Tjokorda
Gde Agung Sukawati and Walter Spies began Pita Maha in 1934, an
association that brought Ubud painting and artistic talent into
the forefront of world art. Spies house, the original guest house
of the Ubud royal family, hosted this historic meeting and is
here still, on the hotel's grounds, overlooking the banks of the
sacred Oos Campuhan river. Hotel Tjampuhan and Spa remains a source
of inspired artistic activity since its founding in the
heyday of the 1928's world traveling.
this setting also inspired Bali visionary holy man Resi Markandya
to build the mother temple complex Besakih, the center or worship
and ceremony for all of Bali. You can be witness to the living
spirit of Balinese devotion to Gods and ancestors, symbolized
in the daily offerings made of rice, fruit, flowers and incense
in the resident Tjampuhan temple.
