The 46-room Uma By COMO, Ubud is an upscale hotel that blends modern and traditional minimalism on a secluded property, overlooking the Tjampuhan Valley. The on-site amenities are particularly appealing: It has a breezy yoga pavilion, garden pool with a bar, and open-air spa. The hotel also offers 24-hour concierge service, two restaurants, a gym, Balinese activities, and village tours. Stylish rooms, suites, and villas include flat-screen TVs and minibars, and many have pools; some also feature outdoor whirlpool tubs. Guests complain, however, that staff can be pushy with recommending add-on resort services. Another option may be the Komaneka at Tanggayuda. Parking, breakfast, and Wi-Fi are all free at Uma by COMO.
Minimalist luxury resort with tropical landscaping, a pool, spa, and fitness facilities
The Uma By COMO, Ubud is a luxury property with understated designs that lets the tropical seven-acre setting -- with views of the Oos River and Tjampuhan Valley -- shine. The romantic and secluded property is geared toward couples, but also families who want privacy. Stylish and minimalist interior designs were created by Japan’s Koichiro Ikebuchi. The thatched-roof lobby features stone floors, cushioned wooden chairs, and a raw wooden coffee table. The large pool is surrounded by tropical foliage, with white lounge chairs and umbrellas on a wooden deck. A vine-covered terrace offers shaded lounge chairs. The overall atmosphere is intimate, quiet, and serene.
The Uma by COMO is on a quiet side street in the village of Sanggingan, giving the property a rural atmosphere. That side street connects to a main thoroughfare -- with restaurants, bars, other hotels, and shops. The Neka Art Museum is in close walking distance. A free resort shuttle goes into downtown Ubud (a bustling artistic city in Bali) in five minutes, where there are lots of vendors, restaurants, and sights, including Ubud Palace and the Museum Puri Lukisan. It’s a five-minute drive to Campuhan Ridge Walk. Elephant Cave, or Goa Gajah, is a 20-minute car trip. The Sacred Monkey Forest takes 15 minutes to reach by car. The Ngurah Rai International Airport is an hour and 15 minutes away by car.
