Are you looking for the list of the best resorts in Ubud? If so, you are in the right place, as you no longer have to wonder “where to stay in Ubud”!

Ubud, located in Bali’s middle uplands, is about an hour’s drive north of both Ngurah Rai International Airport and the southern coastal resorts. This charming rural village is home to many historical sites, including Hindu temples and shrines, magnificent royal mansions that have stood the test of time, and ruins covered in moss. It is sometimes called the cultural heart of Bali. In the 1930s, Ubud became an exclusive artistic colony, drawing famous European artists, writers, and musicians to the mountain air and lively Balinese festivals.

Today, the town is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia, thanks in large part to its appearance in the Oscar-winning film Eat, Pray, Love. The place is also a haven for those seeking opulence, as it is home to an abundance of five-star hotels with fantastic amenities and the best spas in Ubud.

Whether you’re planning a honeymoon in Ubud or just want to relax and have fun, we have you covered. Six of Ubud’s finest resorts, famous for both the amazing nature and hospitality of the staff, are here on this list.
