If you think you’ll be parking it at some five-star chain or trendy lifestyle resort, pack away your Prada heels, because this trip is all about getting back to nature. Not ready to part with your Wi-Fi and hot baths yet? Check into Sandat Glamping Tents (glamping = glamorous + camping)—the first of its kind in Bali, featuring luxurious safari-style tents, thatched roofs and canopied bedrooms, all elegantly crafted with bamboo and mahogany.
Situated in utter seclusion in the corner of a quiet rice paddy, you’ll feel as if you’ve pitched your tent on the open fields of Ubud, with the stars visible by day as well as by night, and the only signs of life coming from a stray farmer weaving his way through the neighboring rice paddies. After enjoying a swim in your infinity-edged private plunge pool, reach for the wind chimes on the bedside table (there are no phones here) to ring a member of staff for a welcome drink—the perfect start to your weekend in Ubud.
